Nuke the News: Is There an Exit Plan for OWS?

* Uh-oh. There are apparently sexual-harassment claims against Herman Cain from back when he worked for the National Restaurant Association. It’s not like he went to a crazed racist preacher for twenty years or hung out with domestic terrorists, but it’s not good. This certainly helps Romney, who has never done anything more than make a couple of harmless passes at fellow mannequins.

Still, you have to wonder if this is just the left’s playbook after Clarence Thomas. If you’re dealing with a prominent black conservative, go for charges of sexual harassment. The left really aren’t very creative with these sorts of things. It’s charge racism against everybody, and I guess this could be the back up plan.

* Snowstorms are starting to hit the Occupy Wall Street protesters. Now we’ll find if they’ll just give up or brave the cold and stay put until… whatever it is they’re trying to do.

Actually, do the OWS people have any exit plan whatsoever? Like, they say they’ll finally leave when X happens? Or are they just going to sit around while there are still rich people and greed? This could go on for years with no coherent end in sight… except for them all freezing to death.

* At least OWS is taking on the big issues. At Occupy Phoenix, a flyer is being passed around asking, “When Should You Shoot a Cop?” At some point these people go from harmless hippies to guy who launches Obama’s political career from his house.

Hey, know who could be potentially violent one day? The Tea Party. We should focus on that.

* Palestine (or, as I like to call it, “Foe-estine”) became a full member of the U.N. cultural and educational agency in defiance of Israel and the United States. I guess that U.N. agency just couldn’t continue on without the great cultural and educational contributions of the Palestinians. Well, maybe the Palestinians can be a good example of what not to do.

“So make sure you make education important or you’ll end up like the Palestinians: A bunch of violent cavemen blowing themselves up.”

“One plus one equals… jooooooooooo!”

Heh. It’s funny because their obsession with hate and violence keeps them from contributing to humanity.

* And now, some bad lip reading for Herman Cain:

Random Thoughts

Maybe instead of OWS getting defensive when people ask for coherent demands, they should instead, you know, COME UP WITH COHERENT DEMANDS.

Napoli impresses me. He has the sort of build where if I was told he was professional athlete, I would have guessed curling.

Handing out fruit at Halloween is unconscionable. That’s something a sociopath would do.

So far the hardest thing about writing for the New York Post is their insistence that my columns have a point to them.

The Week in Doug

From the audio files:

1) “…Give me someone with a backbone. Someone who’s got a backbone who’s up to this battle of re-taking this republic, and saving it from the leftists. Not some half-baked guy in a tailor-made suit…”

2) “…[Obama says], ‘we’ve lost our ambition, we’ve lost our imagination, we’ve lost our willingness to do the things that built the Golden Gate Bridge.’ Mr. President – speak for yourself, here…”

3) “…[Liberals] have spent years crafting this narrative [against conservatives], and their hope is to reelect Barack Obama. So according to the way that these people think, they must make Herman Cain a toxic figure inside the black community, because… he’s piercing the barrier, speaking over the heads of the media…”

4) “…My dear friends, we’re talking about liberty. And the subliminal message in this ad is the message that says, ‘big government, get out of our lives’…”

More audio clips here.

And for those who would rather read than listen, gems-a-plenty:

1) “Who is Barack Obama? That’s the question. Let’s see – a fake, a poseur, a socialist thug, a crybaby, a narcissist, a quack, a petulant liar, a disaster to this country. We don’t know a lot about this guy, but this stuff we DO know.”

2) “You cannot say with a straight face, my dear friends, that Obama have ever seen a problem that he couldn’t make worse.”

3) “They call us conservatives racists, but you and I don’t judge anybody by their ethnicity, by their background, by the color of their skin. We judge people by their character, their ideologies, and the company they keep.”

4) “Obama said that he’s kept 60% of his campaign promises. Back when I was getting my knuckles whacked by nuns with rulers, 60% was considered a failing grade.”

5) “Mass hysteria, historically, is used to dupe the gullible. And it usually involves causing the gullible to part with their money. Or, in the case of climate change, with their liberty.”

6) “The current tax code is a cancer. And when you have a cancer you don’t just take half of it out.”

7) “The message of the man smoking a cigarette is very simple. It’s this: that we are a free people, that we are meant to be a free people, and that we must remain a free people.”

8) “Herman Cain is a black American. So what? Why should he have to justify his blackness to the New York Times and the rest of the liberal media?”

9) “Conservative voters are looking for a bold rainbow of creative ideas from their candidates. What do you get from Mitt Romney? Beige.”

10) “When you’ve got Tokyo Rove out there bashing Herman Cain over his mistakes, that only makes people more forgiving of Cain’s mistakes.”

Re: #4 – Am I alone in thinking Obama could get all the money he needs for his campaign if he let people whack his knuckles with a ruler for five bucks a pop?

Liberal logic

You’d think after a while, I’d get used to liberals saying and doing stupid things. But, I really don’t get used to it. It still amazes me that people can be so stupid and still manage to walk upright.

It’s sort of like a Road Runner cartoon. Wile E. Coyote thinks he’s a “Super Genius” but comes up with some hair-brained plan that ends with him ordering rocket-powered roller skates and blowing himself up or splattering himself against a canyon wall.

You know he’s going to do it. You know his logic is flawed. But you enjoy watching him make an idiot of himself time after time.

Watching liberals is that way. Except, Wile E. Coyote was a creation of the hilariously twisted minds of Chuck Jones and Michael Maltese. Today’s liberals? Living cartoons, except there are too many of them running loose, with way too many holding elected office.

Still, there’s a little bit of that “watching the Coyote” thing that keeps me paying attention to what liberals say and do. Their logic is … Wile E. Coyote-style Super Genius.

For example:

  • Liberals think that early snow and cold weather is a sign of Global Warming ™.
  • Liberals believe that conservatives who support Herman Cain do so because conservatives hate blacks.
  • Liberals think that Americans shouldn’t own guns, but think it’s okay to run guns to Mexican drug lords.
  • Liberals believe that the TEA Party is bad because they could be violent, even though they’re not violent.
  • Liberals think that the Occupy groups are good, despite their violence.
  • Liberals believe that the solution to problems caused by government is more government.
  • Liberals think that killing an unborn baby is fine, but executing a convicted killer is bad.
  • Liberals believe in Affirmative Action, in which blacks are treated different than whites, because blacks have suffered in the past by being treated different than whites.
  • Liberals think you shouldn’t impose your morality on them, while imposing their immorality on you.

Despite the obvious fallacies in their logic, liberals get up every day, try to live according to these beliefs, fail miserably, and then do it all again.

Liberals. Super geniuses.

Who’s gonna lose, week 9

The 9th week of the 2011 college football season is upon us, and we’re getting closer and closer to the big showdown in January between the SEC champion and this year’s victim. Heading into the week, there are 8 unbeaten teams: two in the SEC and 6 trying to earn a spot in the game against one of them.

Except for LSU and Alabama, the top two teams, the other six don’t play each other, so there could be as many as 7 undefeated teams at the end of the season. Personally, I hope that happens. Anything that helps make the case for a playoff is a good thing. If they had a playoff, Houston, Boise State, Clemson, or any of the others that are likely to get left out would truly have a chance. But the NCAA won’t listen to me.

It’s time to check out the schedule and see what big games are scheduled. We’ll look at the matchups between ranked teams, games involving teams from my state, Frank J‘s state, and Harvey‘s state. And a few of the other games where the game is the only game on the boob tube.

If you don’t like college football, you must be a Ron Paul supporter. If you do, let’s see if we can figure out who’s gonna lose this week.

Nuke the News: Avoiding Debate, Republican Congress, and Modernized Monarchy

* So Rick Perry is thinking of skipping debates. That’s an okay strategy for someone who is well ahead, but kind of a confusing idea for someone who is becoming a footnote in the polls. Yeah, polls haven’t exactly been good for him because he has kind of come off as sleepy and incoherent, but how else is he supposed to get attention? Shoot more coyotes?

Hmm… that might work…

* In a new Democrat ploy, they’re trying to label the Congress the “Republican Congress”, hoping they can stick all the unpopularity onto the Republicans and maybe obfuscate who actually holds a majority in the Senate. Now if only they could somehow confuse people thinking that Obama is a Republican, then the GOP would be doomed.

* Surprise, surprise: Despite Obama’s pledge not to take money from lobbyists, he gets millions from them. People thought Obama was a new kind of politician, but it ends up he was just an old kind of politician who was particularly inexperienced and inept.

“Wow, this guy sure has a new way of doing things.”

“Yeah, that’s because HE HAS NO IDEA WHAT HE’S DOING!”

* The British monarchy will no longer be sexist, as the order of succession will now be gender neutral. So they modernized the monarchy. Isn’t that a bit like putting a touch screen interface on a rotary phone? Sure, you modernized a piece of it, but the thing as a whole is pretty drastically outdated.

* New Crowder video: #OccupyRacism

The left accused the Tea Party of lots of horrible things because those were all the things they knew they’d do if they ran a protest.

Also, here is a member of the 1% confronting OWS:

Hot Air has even more video of him trying to reason with the hippies.

* Wisdom of the Day: “Does anyone know how to tactfully tell a 7-year-old he’s picked a non-canon colored lightsaber to go with his Luke costume?” –John Moltz

* John Hawkins has an article on how to speak to a liberal at the Huffington Post of all places. In it, he defines what different words mean to liberals to make it easier to understand them.

Compassion: Feeling good about yourself for wanting to give away money you didn’t earn to people you hope will vote for your side.

Interestingly, it’s similar to an article TV’s Andy Levy wrote for a college newspaper all the way back in 1987. Maybe that could lead to a spin off from Red Eye: “The Young Andy Levy Chronicles”. We’ll follow Andy Levy on his journey from young idealist to sarcastic crank… or maybe from young sarcastic crank to older sarcastic crank.

IMAO Reader Theater: The RadicAlphabet

From Les of Brick Moon:

[YouTube direct link]

Inspired, Les tells me, by the story of the OWS losers foisting commie children’s literature like “Tales for Little Rebels” on their kids.

As someone who knows the challenges of poetic satire, this one really impressed me – he managed to keep his rhythm & rhyme very consistent (as well as under the PG-13 mark), and there were some second lines where the rhyming word he used took me by surprise (in a good way). I love that. Also, he didn’t cheat on the X-word by using a word that begins with E (an all-too-common workaround used by lazy people).

Anyway, you should probably watch this now, so you can say you saw it before it went viral – which I rather suspect this has a good shot of doing, since it’s timely, topical, creative, and well-crafted.
