Lou Reed - Strawman

We who have so much to you who have so little
To you who don't have anything at all
We who have so much more than any one man does need
And you who don't have anything at all

Does anybody need another million dollar movie
Does anybody need another million dollar star
Does anybody need to be told over and over
Spitting in the wind comes back at you twice as hard

Strawman, going straight to the devil
Strawman, going straight to Hell
Strawman, going straight to the devil
Strawman, strawman, strawman, strawman, yes

Ex-Rep Joe Walsh Calls For ISIS-Style Beheadings

Ex-Rep Joe Walsh Calls For ISIS-Style Beheadings


Yesterday it was Rep. Weber, today it's deadbeat dad and ex-Representative Joe Walsh, who hopes MSNBC and CNN editors who refused to show the Charlie Hebdo cartoons are beheaded.

Let's hope that when the Islamists next strike they first behead the appeasing cowards at CNN, MSNBC, etal who refused to show the cartoons.

Mitt 3.0 Fails To Impress Conservatives At Major Conference In Washington

Mitt 3.0 Fails To Impress Conservatives At Major Conference In Washington


WASHINGTON -- The latest signs that Mitt Romney is likely to run for president in 2016 may come as welcome news to former aides and supporters, many of whom received phone calls from the former Massachusetts governor this weekend.

But the prospect of another Romney campaign failed to capture the hearts of social and fiscal conservatives gathered this week in the nation's capital to hammer out the policy agenda for the new Republican-controlled Congress.

The two-day "Opportunity for All, Favoritism for None" conference was hosted by the Heritage Foundation, an influential conservative think tank. The event brought together activists and Republican lawmakers looking to promote conservative solutions on education, defense, religious liberty and marriage -- issues that potential 2016 candidates will need to tackle ahead of what is shaping up to be a contentious primary. But when asked about Romney, an establishment Republican who failed to unseat President Barack Obama in 2012, several attendees said thanks, but no thanks.

“I’m sure he would make a great president. He knows math and he understands economics. And he’s a hundred percent honest," entrepreneur Robert W. Ellis told The Huffington Post. "But the public doesn’t get moved by him. He doesn’t stir their hearts. We need somebody who will light the fire."

Mitt Romney Terrified What Will Happen If He Ever Stops Running For President


DAYTON, OH—Claiming that running for president of the United States is all he knows, Republican nominee Mitt Romney has confided to aides that he is terrified of what will happen to him if he ever stops campaigning for the highest office in the land, sources confirmed Friday.

“Seeking the presidency is something I’ve basically been doing my whole life, and it’s the only thing I’ve been doing for the past eight years,” Romney reportedly told his closest advisers. “In less than two weeks, that’ll all be over. Win or lose, I have to stop running. No more crisscrossing the country from fundraiser to fundraiser, no more early morning strategy meetings to decide what voters need to hear from me today.”

“What happens when it’s Nov. 7, I wake up, and I’m not running for president—what then?” Romney added. “Will I still pivot to my talking points when I get off-message? Oh, God, will I even have talking points? What will I talk about? Somebody, please tell me what I’m supposed to do.”

Several staffers acknowledged that in the past month they have received panicked phone calls from Romney in the middle of the night, with the distressed GOP candidate worrying aloud about what will happen to him when there are no more campaign stops to hit, and speculating wistfully about what waits for him at “the end of the trail.”

Bartender Accused Of Plotting To Poison John Boehner

Bartender Accused Of Plotting To Poison John Boehner


An Ohio man has been indicted for allegedly threatening to kill House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio), WCPO and the Associated Press report.

The man, Michael Robert Hoyt, served Boehner drinks at the Wetherington Golf & Country Club in West Chester, Ohio for more than five years, but was fired in October, according to WCPO.

According to the criminal complaint, Hoyt allegedly called police in late October and told them to tell his father that he was sorry. The call prompted police to visit Hoyt's home, where he allegedly told an office that he was Jesus Christ and was going to kill Boehner because he was responsible for Ebola and had mistreated him. Hoyt reportedly told police that he wished he had time to put something in Boehner's drink and that he had a loaded gun in his home. Police took control of the weapon in his home, and Hoyt reportedly agreed to undergo a psychiatric evaluation.

WCPO reported that agents who later searched Hoyt's home found an assault rifle magazine and ammunition.

Dianne Feinstein on "Walking Dead"..."Daryl shouldn't have cried in that last episode"

OK, she didn't really say it, but she's offering her opinion on everything else lately, so I figure this will be next.

"Leave Petraeus alone?" He's "suffered enough?" HUH? Excuse me?

Bullshit. He made a tragic mistake by taking orders from the Little General, and he needs to be put through the justice system for it.

Cue the obligatory "Ted Cruz Uranus" jokes in 5...4...3...2...1

Ted Cruz, Longtime Foe Of NASA And Science, Will Oversee NASA And Science In New Congress


Following the ratification of Sen. John Thune (R-S.D.) as chair of the Senate Commerce, Science and Transportation Committtee last week, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) was named chair of the Subcommittee on Space, Science and Competitiveness, where he will oversee NASA and science programs.

Appointed Jan. 8, Cruz is expected to be confirmed to the new role by the end of the month as one of many changes to the new Republican-controlled Congress. But the Republican senator's words and actions during his time in office have painted him to be a far cry from an advocate for the sciences, leaving many concerned about the future of space and science funding.

Cruz's infamous hours-long speech in September 2013 led to a 16-day government shutdown barring 97 percent of NASA employees from appearing for work. Interns to the agency were temporarily displaced when the NASA-provided housing was closed during the shutdown, and many have said the agency suffered lasting damage due to the freeze.

And NASA wasn't the only agency hit by the shutdown: research programs run by the National Institute of Health suffered a blow when new clinical trials were suspended, affecting 200 new patients each week of the shutdown. Environmental Protection Agency programs were also compromised, with 90 percent of employees on furlough.

Oh come ON, WTF with this RIDICULOUS WH press conference...as if Bush would have gone to France?

It's my FAVORITE kind of press conference...ask the question, get an answer, and JUST KEEP FUCKING DRILLING DOWN and asking the question over and over and over again.

Bush flew over Katrina.

Would the Republicans feel better if Obama flew over France?
