It is reported that Al Franken was upset that some other comedian was asked to "testify".

Certainly not as long as there is a Jackass in charge of it. Wink1

Miller's beard has more intelligence than all those gathered in Congress to watch Colbert speak this afternoon.

here is another example of Jackasses being Jackasses: GOV. CHRISTIE REVEALS CORZINE’S $180 MILLION LAST-MINUTE PAY OFF. This is a great example why New Jersey was in such terrible financial straits when he took over.

Remember, to Jackasses, Fiscal Responsibility is a tiny little kingdom in the Himalayas. Wink1

One of the things the makes Big Time Jackasses act like Jackasses, it their ability to say one things, and then do another. AND they expect everyone else to do as they say, not as they do. The biblical curse for this is "Hypocrisy".

Look Here!

And note that there are more than one things going on here, that really need discussion.

Quote:U.S. Representative Dave Camp of Michigan, the ranking Republican on the House Ways and Means Committee, and other politicians say the 35 percent U.S. statutory rate is too high relative to foreign countries.

Well, at least he didn't say "we have to raise taxes to see what it does" (paraphrasing Pelosi).

Unfortunately, small businesses simply won't be able to afford the overhead to engage in this form of tax manipulaton.

Raise these taxes on the bigger companies and it won't make much difference to them as they will be able to afford the ways around it.

Hey, look at who Alan Grayson is running against. Now he is mad because someone alerted the country about his filthy ad against his opponent.

Jackasses are literally going Bonkers over the tax extension hammered out between the Boy Wonder and the congressional C&Gs. Normally Jackasses are emotion laden creatures, under normal circumstances. But this week the unleashed fury by congressional Jackasses, and folks in the Fake Media, is threatening to develop into mass roundup by the "Men in the Little White Suits, with the Big Nets" as they cart them off to the nearest asylum.

Congressmen with long ears and buck teeth are even using the "F" word to describe their Maximum Leader. Everyone is being held hostage.. Even the president uses this term. And the Fake Media din is even louder than Neyland Stadium at the beginning of a UT home game.

But Robert Stacy McCain has a great idea. He thinks we should just lean back and thoroughly enjoy the show. Nothing is more fun than watching all the Jackasses chasing their tails, so I tend to agree with him.

Here's what he has to say.

Quote:A Smorgasbord of Schadenfreude

By Robert Stacy McCain(obviously no relation to you know who)

Elections have consequences and one of the most pleasant consequences of last month's mid-term "shellacking" is that conservatives can now enjoy the spectacle of Democratic finger-pointing over the fallout of their electoral catastrophe.

Click your TV remote-control over to MSNBC and you can see what I mean. On what is the de facto Democratic Party cable network, liberals are taking turns in an epic beatdown of President Obama and other Democrats whom they accuse of traitorous weakness -- appeasement! nay, even outright complicity! -- toward those evil right-wing Republicans. The Left's erstwhile hero has now become their Neville Chamberlain, or quite possibly their Vidkun Quisling. (You can probably guess who the Nazis are in either of those analogies.)

The reaction to Tuesday's White House press conference, at which the president defended his tax compromise with Republicans, was some of the best programming in MSNBC history. On Keith Olbermann's Countdown show, the network's primetime scold delivered himself of a new classic in his trademark bombastic "Special Comment" lecture series. Viewers of MSNBC -- including those of us conservatives who enjoy it as a campy amusement -- have long since become accustomed to watching this latter-day Ed Murrow wannabe denounce Republicans as dastardly villains.

The key ingredients to any "Special Comment" include outrageous hyperbole and impressive-sounding adjectives of the sort one might find on an SAT-preparation vocabulary list, as well as a frequent resort to historic and literary references, all of which is permeated with Olbermann's contempt for conservatives. Consider as a typical example how Olbermann responded in August, when New Yorkers were protesting against plans to build a Muslim cultural center two blocks from the site where the World Trade Center towers were destroyed by terrorists on September 11, 2001. Olbermann began by quoting the four sentences for which Pastor Martin Niemöller is best known ("They came first for the Communists…") en route to accusing Newt Gingrich of having a "lurid imagination," declaring that the Iraq war was an expression of America's "naked vengeful blindness," and condemning opponents of the so-called "Ground Zero mosque" for allegedly urging Americans "to sell our birth-right, to feed the maw of xenophobia and vengeance and mob rule."

Listening to such overblown rhetoric delivered with all the well-rehearsed seriousness Olbermann can muster (which is quite a lot) serves to reinforce liberals' sense of their own intellectual superiority, to confirm their belief that anyone who disagrees with them is not merely evil -- on Countdown, the evilness of Republicans is indisputable -- but also hopelessly stupid. You might think Olbermann's audience, believing all this, would be at a loss to explain exactly how the party of evil stupidity managed to win an overwhelming victory on November 2. But if you watch Countdown regularly, you know that this result was made possible by the greedy rich, whose ill-gotten wealth was spent to help Republicans appeal to the intractable ignorance, racism and homophobia of the American electorate.

This is the Olbermann caricature of the GOP, and when Obama compromised with Republicans on "tax cuts for the rich," this exposed the president to every oratorical weapon in the Olbermann arsenal, which the MSNBC star unloaded in a 2,192-word rant Tuesday night. He began with another World War II reference, reciting Winston Churchill's denunciation of the shabby 1938 deal at Munich by which Chamberlain betrayed Czechoslovakia to Hitler: "We have sustained a defeat without a war" and so on, culminating in the words written by the invisible hand on the wall of Belshazzar's palace, "Thou art weighed in the balance and found wanting."

Of course, Countdown viewers reject the authority of the Bible and despise every political principle Churchill ever cherished, but no rules of logic or evidence apply when Olbermann is engaged in comparing Republicans to Nazis, as he does on an almost nightly basis. But Olbermann wasn't aiming at Republicans, he was aiming at Obama, accusing the president of "selling out a principal campaign pledge" and "betraying the truth that the idle and corporate rich of this country have gotten unprecedented and wholly indefensible tax cuts for a decade." He accused Obama of having "injected new vigor into the infantile, moronic, disproved-for-a-decade three-card monte game of an economic theory purveyed by these treacherous and ultimately traitorous Republicans, that tax cuts for the rich will somehow lead to job creation even though if that had ever been true in the slightest the economy would not be where it is today." And by extending these tax cuts, Olbermann said, the president had guaranteed "a reenactment of this whole sorry, amoral, degrading spectacle in the winter of 2012 and at worst a rubber-stamp from a wholly Republican House and Senate and even White House."

This was no mere legislative compromise. No, Olbermann told his viewers, this was a "searing and transcendent capitulation," the primary victims of which were the long-term unemployed who have exhausted their benefits, the so-called "99ers." Whatever Republicans had ceded in this compromise was dismissed by Olbermann as utterly insignificant: "Mr. President, for these meager crumbs, you have given up costly, insulting, divisive, destructive tax cuts for the rich and you have given in to Republican blackmail which will be followed by more Republican blackmail." And after many more hundreds of words of this kind of verbal excoriation -- this "Special Comment" was nearly 12 minutes long -- Olbermann lowered the boom: "It is not disloyalty to remind the President that he was elected by people to whom he had given a clear outline of what he would do for them, and if he does not steer out of the skid of what he is doing to them, he will not only not be re-elected, he may not even be re-nominated."

This threat of a 2012 primary challenge to Obama, coming from a man who claims to speak on behalf of the Democratic Party's grassroots activist base, surely ought to gladden the evil hearts of Republicans everywhere. Given Olbermann's love of historical comparisons, perhaps he can leave aside his GOP-Nazi analogies long enough to research recent history a bit closer to home. The last time a sitting president faced a serious primary challenger -- when Pat Buchanan took on George H.W. Bush in 1992 -- Republicans suffered a landslide defeat the next November. Before that? Ted Kennedy challenged Jimmy Carter in the 1980 Democratic primaries, and Carter lost in a landslide to Ronald Reagan. In 1976, Reagan's primary challenge to Gerald Ford had preceded Ford's narrow loss to Carter and before that? In 1968, Gene McCarthy's strong showing in the New Hampshire Democratic primary led Lyndon Johnson to announce he would not seek re-election, and the GOP's Richard Nixon was subsequently elected to the White House.

If Obama is Chamberlain at Munich, where is the Democratic Churchill who, by taking on the president in the 2012 primaries, will rescue America from those dreaded GOP goosesteppers? Olbermann's overwrought analogy portrayed "tax cuts for the rich" as a 21st-century Sudetenland, but he never got around to identifying a liberal savior, who perhaps exists only in the fertile imagination of the Countdown host. That all this anti-Obama bombast is the result of a Republican midterm victory, forcing the president to triangulate his way toward an appearance of bipartisanship, promises many more equally entertaining "Special Comments" over the next two years. Some of us may be evil and stupid enough to hope that, should the GOP give liberalism another "shellacking" in 2012, Olbermann will be likening it to Dunkirk, as Democrats desperatedly try to salvage some remnant of the progressive dreams that Obama once promised to make real.

For conservatives with an appetite for schadenfreude, MSNBC is now serving a smörgåsbord. Olbermann's network is arguably less informative than Fox News, but watching Democrats eat their own is as entertaining as anything on Comedy Central.

Let the triangulation begin.

If the Obamaessiah were a smart man, he would make his peace with Hillary and get Bill in the White house to begin figuring out how to sell the pile of manure that has become this administration.

I don't think that to be possible. The Clintons and Boy Wonder are only superficially on amicable conditions. In real life, Bill hates Obama with a blue passion.

The old addage of "Keep your friends close, but your enemies closer" works, but not with two Clintons to contend with. If Bill were admitted back in the WH, guess who would take center stage? It would make little Chucky Shumer look like a church mouse, and that's saying a mouthfull.

On Freedom Watch last night, Sir Charles stated that someone owes Joe Wilson(he lied) an apology, when it comes to total disrespect to the Dear Leader.

I simply Love this show, for several reasons. First, it is an unabashed Libertarian site. Second, it is hosted by a constitutional scholar. And third, it is the only show that will actually give O'Reilly a run for the money.

About a week ago O'Reilly had the Judge on his show, and did a wonderful job of promoting Freedom Watch by describing it as a "Dopey Little Show". No wonder O'Reilly hates it: it's on his same time slot, and he knows it is going to draw away from his. Good for them.

The O'Reilly Factor is rebroadcast at 11 pm, if you miss it at 8 pm. So you can watch both. If you can't stay up that late, then you can record it.

I cannot think of a better example of Jackasses thinking like Jackasses. Can you believe this: The USS John Murtha? Needless to say, the Real navy is more than outraged.

Does anyone have a fitting title for the ship's nickname?

If the Murtha label remains firmly affixed it will probably be informally christened the SS Pork Scow ... :?

We can just change "Sink the Bismark" around and fit this ship into the song somehow.

Anyone want to pity the poor sailor stuck on that ship? Why are we naming ships after people like him?

Probably due to the fact that he, being the consummate Jackass, is the very best they could come up with, as a representative Jackass.

Go and reread the thread's title, ok? Wink1

How about something like "Porkulus Express", since it is to haul marines in an expeditious manner. After all, he not only had the manners of a pig, but even looked like one. :lol:

I will bet you one thing though: when it comes time to retire this line of ships, which of the class do you think the navy will retire first?

Governor Jerry Brown shows why Jackasses think like Jackasses. Instead of looking at the current fiscal problems as a "Spending" issue, he is going to see more businesses migrate to other states.

And naturally it's the other side's fault.

Quote:Citing the pro-democracy unrest in Egypt and Tunisia, Gov. Jerry Brown called it “unconscionable” that GOP legislators are vowing to block his attempt to ask voters to extend tax hikes to balance the budget.

“When democratic ideals and calls for the right to vote are stirring the imagination of young people in Egypt and Tunisia and other parts of the world, we in California can’t say now is the time to block a vote of the people,” Brown said in his first State of the State address in nearly 30 years.

He said the budget has tough choices but that the people “have a right to vote” on the package.

He challenged both parties to take the difficult votes necessary to balance the budget.

I just love this. But first, what does the unrest in Egypt, and the 'so called' democracy movement there, have to do with Kalifornia's fiscal woes? Perhaps someone can show me the light here?

And asking the voters to decide, is fine, provided there are enough sane voters left in the state.

And note that there is no mention of curbing spending. And what really is the most difficult vote there?
