  2. Ghost of FA Hayek says:

    Oh to dream.
    Kind of like the guy standing next to you in the elevator asking for his fart back.

  3. Zilla says:


    Great find, Dave! if the gutless crapweasels known as the GOP would impeach the bastard already for any one of his MANY acts of treason and other impeachable and illegal offenses, that village would not have to wait till 2013 to get their idiot back!

    This was inspired by your commenter Scott in yesterday’s open thread:

    Go Go Thomas! The Little Engine that Could … Enrage Leftists

    Also, it is not too late for people to join the growing ranks of Operation United Front to stand against the blood libel of “right wing bloggers” and the anti-jihad movement.
    Contact me if you would like to add your name to the Roll Call list, I promise, you will be in good company.

    Have a great night!

  5. TED says:

    By “If a previous president” read “If Bush” if you want to give them all an ANALrisim!

  6. Granny Jan says:

    That’s not fair to make me laugh so hard.

    I wanted to make a film noir, but it turned out to be a film “red”.

  7. Jodie says:

    Once again, great job Granny Jan!

  8. Granny Jan says:

    Thanks, Jodie!
    Ted, that was a great list. It’s #27 that could be the answer to everything. I hope it all comes out some day.

  9. I swear Obama sings this song even better. In fact he wrote this song before coming to USA. “419”
    BTW. the music is really great. The lyrics are Africa Accent so pay attention.

  10. Berlet98 says:

    Hyperbole and Insanity in D.C.

    It’s sometimes challenging to attempt to separate the wheat from the chaff, the real from the unreal, the merely mistaken from the blatantly hyperbolic, the dumb from the patently maniacal ideas and blatherings emanating from Washington, D.C. nowadays.

    Okay, it’s always a challenge and not just lately. Of late, however, some of the chaffish, unreal, hyperbolic rantings from Democrat politicians lead objective observers to wonder whether some of their ilk have gone, literally, insane.

    If not for the state of the art air conditioning in the Capitol, I could attribute it all to the effects of D.C. heat.

    A leader of the Dem pack, former and wannabe-future Speaker of the House, multi-millionaire Nancy Patricia D’Alesandro Pelosi, (CA), has always been an enigma to those who were mystified as to how a DNC hack could rise to the position of third in succession to the presidency of the United States.

    In her role as Speaker, Pelosi further mystified with ineptitude supplemented by outrageous ignorance, more graciously termed inexperienced naiveté, as when she freely admitted she hadn’t the bloodiest idea of what was contained in the most significant social legislation her House had passed in generations, Obamacare.

    Saying we would all have to wait until the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act was rammed through on Christmas Eve, 2009 before we–and she and her fellow Democrats who had done the ramming–would know what the PPACA contained should have led to her summary impeachment. Instead, it led to accolades for Pelosi’s leadership.

    Go figure.

    What is beyond figuring are the most recent statements of this current Democrat Leader of the House and her congressional cohorts.

    On Thursday, Leader Pelosi delivered what may best be described as a head-shaker regarding the debt limit debate, which the Senate Majority Leader on Friday all but guaranteed would go down to the Tuesday wire.

    Rep. Pelosi clarified the essential issue in that debate for us nincompoops who just can’t grasp essentials when she said, “What we [that would be Democrats] are trying to do is save the world from the Republican budget. We’re trying to save life on this planet as we know it today.” (

    Got it now, fellow nincompoops? And you thought that Obama spending scarce taxpayer money like a drunken Dem and adding trilions to the national debt in just 28 months, his refusal to accept the Republican proposal for a balanced budget, and his demonstrable financial ineptitude were the problems! You probably also believe legislation should be read before it’s approved!

    We should trust Aunt Nancy to preserve the planet, all life thereon, and the American way, forever and ever. Amen.

    Harry Reid (NV) is another Dem who has either gone over the rhetorical top–or has simply gone bonkers. . .

  11. RICH says:

    Nice. If you had a like button, I would give this a thumbs up.

  12. Dr. 9 says:

    Do you believe America finally realizes how much damage can be done by weak, mindless, and totally gullible voters? …. No, neither do i.

    31 Foregone Facts Barack Obama Fans Should Ponder!

    By Kevin A. Lehmann

  14. hiram says:

    oops.. anyway…
    Off topic, but just to reinforce my presence (I haven’t posted much lately)…

    This was my first ever contribution to Moonbattery. It still holds up. Enjoy.

  15. Bob Roberts says:


    They’re so transparent – the plan is apparently to hold up voting on this until the last moment then to present it as “the only option to default”.

    “Mr. Reid complained that if the House had been held to the same super majority rules the Senate often operates under, Republicans’ proposal never would have passed over there earlier in the day.”

    Yes, but the House is not the Senate and it has it’s own rules, for good reasons. Reid – if you want to operate under the House rules, give up your Senate seat and run for election in the House!

    It’s all a game, a joke, anyway

    I don’t know what Moody’s said about the “Cut, Cap and Balance” plan, but they’re pointing out, accurately, that neither of the most recent plans have deep enough cuts.

    “Reductions of the magnitude now being proposed, if adopted, would likely lead Moody’s to adopt a negative outlook on the AAA rating,” the credit rating agency said in a new report. “The chances of a significant improvement in the long-term credit profile of the government coming from deficit reductions of the magnitude proposed in either plan are not high.”

    It added that “prolonged debt ceiling deliberations” have increased the odds of a downgrade


    Meanwhile, how’s that “hopey-changey” thing working? (It’s NOT!)

    At least Obama is finally, inadvertently, doing something about the illegal alien invasion:
    Apparently, thanks to Obama, unemployment in Mexico is 1/2 what it is here! So the illegals are headed back where they belong in droves! Talk about unintended consequences! There goes the Democratic voter base!

    In other news:

    Tree huggers everywhere are furious about this!

    Seriously! Here is their reaction!

    They don’t care that our interention in forests and other terrains everywhere has created the unnatural situation (crowded growth) which is the true cause of the wildfire explosions we’ve seen (No, it never was “global warming”) and needs to be addressed. Nature culls trees naturally – we’ve interfered and now we need to set things right.

  16. Jodie says:

    Hurray Bill O’Reilly for exposing the extremely horrific lie perpetuated by left-wing biased news organizations like the New York Times, who say that the Norway killer was a Christian:

    “Bill O’Reilly was not pleased with the New York Times’ labeling of Anders Behring Brevik, the 32-year-old mass murderer who took at least 76 innocent lives as a ‘Christian Extremist.’ In his column, he notes that the ‘killer is not attached to any church, has no history of Christian activity, has openly criticized the Protestant philosophy, and has committed acts counter to all Christian teaching.’

    O’reilly, christains, demonized ‘Anders Brevik did not kill in the name of Jesus,’ O’Reilly argues. ‘He was not a member of a Christian-based al-Qaida-like group. He was not funded by Iran or enabled by Pakistan. He is simply a murderer, a man devoid of any spiritual conscience. A direct descendent of Cain. Yet, somehow, Brevik is now a member of a peace-loving, compassionate group, at least according to some media. He’s a Christian.’

    ‘The left well understands that Christian opposition to things like abortion, gay marriage, and drug legalization makes those liberal causes more difficult to achieve,’ O’Reilly concludes. ‘Thus, anything that diminishes Christianity is fair game to be promoted. Every newsworthy sin committed by a Christian is highlighted with a sneering reference to hypocrisy. Any whiff of Christian intolerance is celebrated in the press.'”

  17. Ghost of FA Hayek says:

    Here are some stats from the CDC regarding the elevated risk homosexuals face from Aids
    # Gay, Bisexual, and Other Men Who Have Sex with Men (MSM): By risk group, gay, bisexual, and other MSM of all races remain the population most severely affected by HIV.

    * MSM account for more than half (53%) of all new HIV infections in the U.S. each year, as well as nearly half (48%) of people living with HIV.
    * While CDC estimates that MSM account for just 4% of the US male population aged 13 and older, the rate of new HIV diagnoses among MSM in the US is more than 44 times that of other men and more than 40 times that of women.
    * White MSM account for the largest number of annual new HIV infections of any group in the US, followed closely by black MSM.
    * MSM is the only risk group in the U.S. in which new HIV infections have been increasing since the early 1990s.
    Why is this relevant ?
    Well, John “reporting for duty” Kerry believes “fairness” trumps a safe blood supply.

  18. Jodie says:

    As I’ve mentioned before, Obama fits the description of the final anti-Christ to a T. So far, no one has shown me any evidence to the contrary.

    If in fact, he is the anti-Christ, then who is the false prophet? Could it be someone who attended Reverend Wright’s church with Obama? Someone who worships Obama and was extremely instrumental in his election? Someone who has a HUGE following?

    Before you argue with me or mock me, watch the following video. They are not saying that Oprah is the false prophet, but after a lot of thought and study, I am wondering…
