Going Norm Galt

I always like Norm, even though he was a damned yankee. He was the right kind of yankee, though, the frugal no-nonsense man Getting Shit Done.

Another promise…

Palling Around

Thus, the prominent participation of Ayers in the Renaissance conference comes as no surprise. What is notable, though, is that Duncan and Kanter were also participating. Clearly the White House has no problem being associated with Bill Ayers. Ayers, it would appear, is being allowed a “renaissance,” so to speak, now that the potential of their shared history to undermine Obama has receded for the time being.

Killing the Word

Only the most gullible dupes, and people who rely on CNN for “news”, seriously think Rush Limbaugh is a racist. The dishonesty and cynicism behind dimwitted assertions that he wanted to buy an NFL team to role-play the life of a plantation owner is breathtaking. His accusers don’t really think he harbors some elusive racist demon, which he suppresses just long enough to become friends with Walter Williams, Clarence Thomas, Thomas Sowell, and Tony Dungy. The people who read this crap should be at least as angry over the insult to their intelligence as Limbaugh is about the insult to his honor. This kind of weapons-grade stupidity is one of the things America can no longer afford.

“Another way of putting it is when, you know, I’m busy and Nancy’s busy with our mop cleaning up somebody else’s mess — we don’t want somebody sitting back saying, you’re not holding the mop the right way. Why don’t you grab a mop, why don’t you help clean up. You’re not mopping fast enough. That’s a socialist mop. Grab a mop — let’s get to work.”

Hyuck hyuck hyuck.  Problem is, Barry, that’s not really what is going on.

What is going on is that we had a nice wall.  And, having a hammer and nothing to do, you started knocking holes in the wall.  And your opposition comes up, and says, “what the hell are you doing?”

You said, “fixing this wall!”

They said, “all you are doing is knocking holes in it!  Stop!”

You said, “well, how are you going to fix the wall?”

They said, “you can’t fix a wall by knocking holes in it.”

You said, “look, this wall is full of holes, and unless you are going to grab a hammer and do something about it, shut up.”

They said, “the only reason the wall has any holes in it to start with is because you put them there, and you can’t fix a wall with a hammer anyways!”

And then you got a bucket stuck on your head and we were left with a wall full of holes.
