These invalid “recess” “appointments”

Get used to it. I like “scare quotes”.

My tattooed friend notes that We have to use the rules, the libs just do whatever the *^$# they desire. And he doesn’t say that “we” means me and my tattooed friend “have to use the rules”. [There is that scare quote thing.  Ok seriously, I will try to cut back] He  means our beloved squishy gutless Republicans in Washington feel like they can’t get their hands dirty playing hardball, or even not being nicey-nicey with those dirty corn-holer Democrats in Washington, because the press will blame Repubs for everything (true enough) and the “independent voters” [sorry, did it again] will turn away from us for being contentious or whatever.

Whatever, douche bags. Well, that is the thing – at this point, to play by the rules and do the right thing means IMPEACHMENT. Read more

Back to work

Ok, Christmas is done. Santa came for the good ones, Christ Jesus had a happy birthday.  A certain amount of after-Christmas business remains – gift cards to spend, sales, sales  and more sales, and about 7,000 more bowl games, including the NCAA joke national championship that has clown team Alabama instead of powerhouse and rightful #2 Oklahoma State against Darth Miles and the Evil Empire centered in Red Stick, Louisiana.

In the negotiations over raising the nation’s credit card limit, you see it: grassroots Americans shudder with suspicion and fear every time House Speaker Boehner walks out of a meeting. They tremble every time the left-wing press stirs rumors of a “grand deal,” “grand compromise,” or yet another cockamamy proposal floated by weak-kneed Senate Republicans. We’ve seen this movie before. But have we really?

I’m going on record: Republicans are getting better at this. They are getting a lot better at this, and they’re learning in a hurry.

Independence Day 2010 – November 2

Do we love liberty enough to keep it? I think we do.

A free people will not give up its freedom. Never has it been more evident than now that America is not Europe. We are indeed the world’s last best hope. And know this: America is spectacularly, magnetically, incurably, incandescent Exceptional. In spite of what the Boy President™ says, we ARE exceptional. And also in spite of what he says, nobody else can lay claim to the term.

We are it. There is no other. We are Exceptionalist America. We are the shining light of freedom that shows all the people of the world that they can be free as well.
