Liberexmachina of Liber Ex Machina has honored IMAO with the “Liber Ex Machina ‘I Kan Reed’ Barely Literate Award” Award.

Man, I thought awards with big words were bad. Now they’re tossing out Ancient Italian lingo.

Regardless, we at IMAO are flattered to receive an award that no left wing blog will EVER be good enough to win.


To join the exclusive club of blogs who honor IMAO and have your award featured on our sidebar with a link to your blog, make up a fancy award image honoring IMAO, blog about it, and drop a link in the comments.

Keep it PG-13, and if it doesn’t suck too terribly bad, your award will be duly noted in a post (I’m currently backlogged by about half a dozen submissions – don’t worry, your post is coming), and placed in the sidebar with a link to your site.

As added incentive for people to honor IMAO with worthless, made-up awards, those who do so may proudly display this worthless, made-up Participant Ribbon:

If you don’t have a blog, then send your image to and include a link to one of your favorite IMAO posts.

For the Photoshop-impaired, here’s a guide to making mediocre fake pictures with Microsoft Paint

Or try the free lolbuilder from I Can Has Cheezburger.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Maximum sidebar image width is 190 pixels. Please make sure text is at least barely legible at that size.

Now get honoring!

Twitter Posts

You commenters are some vile angry things. Just thought I could throw in some extra content based on thoughts throughout the day and if you didn’t like it, you could scroll past it. But apparently such a thing is not possible unless I want to put up with excessive mewling and crying. I should not call you commenters — I should call you dreamcrushers. You do naught but keep me down.

Fine. That’s it. I’m done blogging. I get no joy out of it and it’s nothing but more work each day when there are so many other projects I’d like to try. So no more posts out of me.


Or at least until tomorrow.

Plus the Twitter thing kept double posting. It was kinda annoying me too.

Bush and Obama vs the U.N.

Did you notice that the Obama administration did a couple of things recently that smacked of the Bush administration?

First, the decision by Obama to boycott the U.N. conference on racism. Back in August 2001, the Bush administration did the same thing, and was roundly criticized. The left said that it showed just how much contempt Bush had toward the world community and how insensitive it was to issues of race.

But now, Obama did the same thing — for the same reason Bush gave: wording in the text for the conference were out of line:

The United States, under the Bush administration, and Israel walked out over attempts to liken Zionism — the movement to establish a Jewish state in the Holy Land — to racism. The reference was later dropped, but concerns about anti-Semitism remained in the final text.

Plans to reaffirm the 2001 document were of particular concern to the Obama administration.

“(It) singles out one particular conflict and prejudges key issues that can only be resolved in negotiations between the Israelis and Palestinians,” (State Department spokesman Robert Wood) said.

Follow that up with Obama’s decision to not pursue prosecution of CIA operatives that used interrogation methods that Obama sees as torture that Bush saw as reasonable.

The U.N.’s top torture investigator doesn’t like that:

Manfred Nowak first made the remarks to an Australian newspaper and later to the Associated Press.

According to Nowak, it’s illegal under International Law for the U.S. government to announce that it has no intention of prosecuting low-level CIA officers.

Bush was roundly criticized for not bowing to the U.N.

Obama might bow to the king of Saudi Arabia, but apparently is not yet ready to bow to the U.N.

Good for him.

And I’m looking forward to what’s next. That is, those on the left who won’t be able to get over Obama acting like Bush on two key issues. They love Obama. And they love the U.N. But what do they do now?

Do they applaud Obama? Or do they support the U.N.?

I’m going to watch the liberals’ heads explode as they try to figure out what to do.

I hope I get pictures.
