Good News Is Bad News

Thursday, October 23, 2014 4:00 pm

A new report shows that US life expectancy rose again and death rates fell.

Oh, look… one of the few things the left WON’T say is a result of global warming.

Not that it is, but neither is anything else.

A new poll shows that only 24% of Americans say they have “confidence” in Obama’s plan for the economy.

Technically, it contains spoilers if you haven’t read the book, since the third movie’s not out yet.

On the bright side: no Radagast the Brown – live-action Jar-Jar of wizards.

You Keep Using That Word…

Wednesday, October 22, 2014 8:00 pm

Despite putting out a book critical of the President, former CIA director Leon Panetta said “I am very loyal”.

Nope, sorry. In this administration, that’s defined as “STAYS under the bus”.

Bacon Cream Cheese!

It’s a real thing, coming to a store near you soon.

I hate to be a pessimist, but I just know my first thought when I peel back the lid will be “these bacon chunks need to be bigger”.

Link of the Day: Obama’s Ebola Timeline

[High Praise! to Day by Day Cartoon]

Normally I’d embed this, but it’s a Sunday cartoon, so it’s too big for this page:

Day by Day cartoon for 10-19-14

I’m sending you partly for the “special edition” Obama poster in the second panel, but also for the pithy summary of the Ebola timeline. When you lay the events out straight like that, Obama looks even more crooked and inept than usual.

What Obama Said, Only Pithier

Wednesday, October 22, 2014 4:00 pm

At a DNC fundraiser, President Obama said “there’s a sense that the world is spinning so fast and nobody is able to control it.”

Or, as the Founding Fathers liked to call it: “liberty”.

Making Bad Book

Wednesday, October 22, 2014 8:00 am

At a press conference, President Obama said “the chances of an Ebola outbreak in the United States is extremely low”.

So, then, just at a guess… higher or lower than the chance of the government rolling out a functioning website?

How poetic – Lois: “Can I come in?”; Neighbor: “I plead the fifth”.
