Shorter Charlie Kraphammer, The Washington (“Invade Iraq”) Post
The Way Forward

  • The lesson of the election is not that the GOP should moderate its positions to attract new voters; instead the lesson is that it should talk pretty. For example, to attract Hispanic voters, we should say we are in favor of “amnesty” when all borders are finally closed my disability is miraculously cured.* To attract women voters, don’t call it a “mandatory transvaginal ultrasound;” rather, call it a “free pony ride.”

*This is a reference to Charles’s sadly disfigured face and not anything else.

    Amazing that these wrong-about-everything-all-the-time pundits still have a job. Krauthammer was, as of 2012, 0-100,000,000. And yet the Post still pays him for his piffle.

    This is what passes for “balance” in the modern media. One side can’t find its asshole with a flashlight, or it lies so badly, and disingenuously, that even a deaf and blind monkey can tell. The other side is then forced to point this all out. And yet the lying, unctuous boobs have the larger and more loyal audience.

    Fucking hell.

    I’ve always been of the “enforcement first” school, with the subsequent promise of legalization. I still think it’s the better policy. But many Hispanics fear that there will be nothing beyond enforcement. So, promise amnesty right up front. Secure the border with guaranteed legalization to follow on the day the four border-state governors affirm that illegal immigration has slowed to a trickle.

    I encourage Republicans to use exactly these words.

    PROTIP: If your idea of a political “deep bench” includes Bobby Jindal, Paul Ryan, Nikki Haley & Scott Walker, perhaps your boss, your wife & all your friends are right, & you really should cut down on shotgunning Sterno after all.

    Only time you’ll ever see Krauthammer – or almost ANY of these crypto-feudalist schmeebs – saying “there’s no need for radical change” is when it’s referencing their ideological Ship Of Phail in relation to its latest dire fuckup.

    Ten’ll get you twenty Chuckles said those exact same words back when the sacred glorious Iraq Surge was looking like a big blazing bag of P00P on America’s doorstep — right before Muqtada al-Sadr gave Dubya the mulligan of a lifetime via opting to save civilian lives by unilaterally bowing out.

    What could we do right now to understand the role of impulsiveness in our lives?

    If you were reincarnated as an animal, would you rather be a squirrelfish or a screech owl?

    Is it more appealing for you that your best friend be cosmic or clairvoyant?

    Which is a better name for a pet kissing gourami, Wabod Dove or Jannie Stag Beetle?

    Would you rather have a deformed bosom or a deformed head?

    Discuss how a skeleton in your closet has affected each of you in your lives.

    How could you use fish to improve your career?

    Would you prefer as a nickname “The Pity-Pity” or “The Clear President Clinton”?

    Discuss why in Saint Lucia they say: “Never call a zoologist when you require a cheetah”.

    If you had to be a backup singer in a New band, would you rather it be called ‘Breathed Chinese food’ or ‘Gary Ruppert’s Chicago Ti’?

    How would you make art out of pink salmons and muffins?

    Which movie would you rather watch: a comedy about two soldiers destroying the same loser or a fake documentary about a pagan homemaker and an insecure ceramicist dislodging an elementary school in the 1990s?

    Make a pun using the word ‘grey’.

    Would you prefer to be more or less nauseating?

    Oh Nooners never change:

    President Obama did not lose, he won. It was not all that close. There was enthusiasm on his side. Mitt Romney’s assumed base did not fully emerge, or rather emerged as smaller than it used to be. He appears to have received fewer votes than John McCain. The last rallies of his campaign neither signaled nor reflected a Republican resurgence. Mr Romney’s air of peaceful dynamism was the product of a false optimism that, in the closing days, buoyed some conservatives and swept some Republicans. While GOP voters were proud to assert their support with lawn signs, Democratic professionals were quietly organizing, data mining and turning out the vote. Their effort was a bit of a masterpiece; it will likely change national politics forever. Mr. Obama was perhaps not joyless but dogged, determined, and tired.

    Apart from those points, everything in my blog post of Nov. 5 stands.

    So what does it all mean?

    Brainiacs, you can’t even get your own base to fall for that shit when you try to rebrand Social Security or Medicare privatization/abolition – and these guys want to believe you. If you think it’s going to work on people who already think you’re out to fuck them, you’re on drugs.

    Oh, the Nooners article.

    A majority of the American people believe that the one good point about Republicans is they won’t raise taxes.

    Even though a majority of those polled in the last four years have continually offered “taxing the rich” as their preferred way to make up the deficit.

    It is and has been a proud Republican assumption—a given, a faith—that we are a center-right country and, barring extraordinary circumstances, will tend to return to our natural equilibrium.

    What does it say about your party that when such circumstances arise, you’re the one the people don’t want in the driver’s seat?

    (I’ll ignore the fact that you have a way of bringing about the “extraordinary circumstances” that get you voted out through your own stupidity…)

    Republican candidates and professionals will have to put aside their pride, lose their assumptions, and in the future work harder, better, go broader and deeper.

    Yeah, that part’ll happen.

    Let’s see if I’ve go this right… Ms Noonan begins by explaining that her previous column was wrong in every respect because she and the Republican party ignored every scrap of evidence in order to preserve their assumption of entitlement. Then she finishes her current column by arguing that when evidence conflicts with a Republican assumption of entitlement, the evidence should be amended.

    Of course when she describes an unfounded assumption as “a faith” she means it’s a good thing.

Your moral chiding, rape rationalizing, calling everyone except upper crust whiteys leeches who “want stuff” is totally a winning strategy. Also, don’t forget to defend the poor, downtrodden millionaires. It shows political courage.

    According to Gallup the difference is 2%-points(46-44%), within the “4% maximum” margin of error. There’s also a huge age difference, where women 18-49 leaned pro-choice 50-39% while those over 50 leaned pro-life 55-37%.

    OK, I understand a bit more how Krauthammer’s statement re: women voters managed to live long enough to be typed. It was a) backed up by Gallup, the conservative pollsters who got the whole election wrong, and b) indicates that the group of women who are unlucky to have to deal directly with abortions are most against them.

    Was what I just wrote that hard? Can I have a NY Times column now?

    Just lightly, especially if it’s boned.

    tis boned…poaching sounds icky…i have to admit, that while i eat quite a bit of pheasant, i rarely cook it myself…hubbk’s mom usually does that…the standard way to make it in these parts is to dredge in seasoned flour and brown it, then add some cream of mushroom soup and cream to the browning pan and scrape up all the good bits…then transfer the pheasant and creamy stuff to a roaster to the oven and let it bake for a few hours…

    i do recall once putting pheasant and cream and possibly sherry in the crockpot for an all day session which we had over potatoes…hubbkf fondly remembers this dish, but sadly i have no idea where said recipe came from…

    my favorite way to have it though is cubed breasts marinated in a fruity type of marinade, wrapped in bacon, skewered and grilled…

    so, i guess what i’m saying is how does one poach pheasant and will it be good with alfredo?

    Chuckles diligently hammered the krap last week:

    National syndicated columnist Charles Krauthammer believes it will be close, but that Romney will come out with the victory over President Obama on Tuesday.

    He joined Sean Hannity to discuss the state of the race, calling Obama the “luckiest politician” he’s ever seen after the president received a boost this week from Hurricane Sandy.

    He explained that when Sandy hit, it froze the race and Romney’s momentum, allowing Obama to be in the spotlight.

    Rmoney never led in the polls, not once, not for so much as a day. Nate Silver explained this to them in the simplest possible terms he could. And they still could not get it, because global warming is a myth, Algore and Michael Moore are fat; bookmark this, libs: teabaggers are the real American majority.

    Well, at least their prognostications are more accurate than those of their great hero, Bill Kristol. So they deserve to keep their jobs. Just ask them.

    I would not have a problem with that except that they’re probably talking about farm raised birds killed young. Wild shot pheasant are not usually young, tender, fatty birds with just developed muscles but tough old things. They can be hung till high and roasted (sure, clothe them in bacon if you must or incise them and poke in lardons as you wish) for a classic taste though it’s high risk; you don’t know how old or tough the bird is until you’re done. This is why I recommended poaching, one gets pheasant flavour and a better chance of toothsome morsels in one’s alfredo instead of fibrous shreds. I know fibrous shreds are traditional in many cuisines and concede that they have their place.

    Some pheasant hunting grounds, like the quail hunting in southwest GA are essentially put and take operations where the birds are stocked regularly so that rich city folk can come in and blast away at them. Then the birds are much more uniform in age and can be cooked as if they were farm birds.

    Amid such pedantry I will note that I left “boning the pheasant” out there as a big hanging curve and declined the temptation of “spatchcocking”.

My planned re-locate to Albuquerque last summer was blown to smithereens by significant worsening of my mood disorder: i was in no condition to pack and sell my house.

    There is probably way Too Much Information, and detail, and digression in the account of my health and other doings. But I’ll whip up a summary–replete with Fenwickian digression, of course–and formatted with headers and sub-headers, so you can scan or skip over stuff of less importance, or less interest to you. Most of the story is unavoidably self-referential. (“How is your health?”)

    Where have I been? Well, my VA doc sent me to the ER a few weeks ago; I spent the weekend in Good Samaritan, and got to experience a complete MRI scan. (Twice, actually; the wanted a seperate ‘high-contrast’ scan.)

    I was very impressed by size of the MRI apparatus; it filled up most of the room, and pretty much looked like a warp drive. It sure as hell sounded like a warp drive.

    The scans–and a visit by a consulting neuorologist–were to see if there might be a physical cause for some balance (and hand-tremors) problems that have worsened in recent months I was relieved to find that the tests ruled out any physical or neurological reasons.

    Last week, my Hopkins psychiatrist posited that the balance-and-tremors problem might be related to my mood-stabilizer medication. (It was originally developed as an anti-seizure medicine for eplilectics. Later, by pure happenstance, the mood-stabilizing benefits were discovered.) Based on his hypothesis, we are lowering the dosage. Just began the switchover Friday.

    In the name of SCIENCE! I have generously volunteered myself as a subject. No ill effects thus far. Here’s a sample dose:

    Hudak said the GOP’s handling of same-sex marriage provides a template. In the 2004 election, Republicans used opposition to same-sex marriage to drive voters to the polls. But as attitudes shifted, Republicans for the most part simply stopped talking about the issue.

    “That’s the first step to neutralizing these social issues,” he said. “It’s not to change your mind. It’s just to not speak your mind. And that way people can think this isn’t that aggressive party anymore, and it opens the door for them to vote for you based on other issues.”

    HUDAK WILL YOU GAY-MARRY ME?!?!?!11!?!

    P.S. “Neutralizing the social issue”

    Ooh, thanks, Hogeye, that blog was terrific (in both senses). Here’s my fave comment (posted completely without edit):

    AnonymousNovember 9, 2012 6:46 PM
    This is the most terrifying, sinister act of treason, treachery and cowardess I’v witnessed in my lifetime. And, to the journalists and bloggers – well no one wants to end up like Andrew Breitbart. What does one do, file some sort of BS ex parte pseudo-action with the world court? It pretty clear that this is some kind of civil/human rights violation. Do other world leaders know what is happening here? They might as well make the constitution on toilet paper b/c if no one stands to defend it, then what good isn it? Btw, for all the big gun talkers, who will fire not the first shot, but the 100,000th shot b/c that is would it would take to displace the ruling class. And before that happens…SARS outbreak, right. Or maybe stuxnet, or a reactor meltdown to keep people running and in fear. What do the elite pray to? Whatever it name it appears to more actively, physically, involved than the the god of Abraham, The Father of the Nazarene. Our air, water, food, technology are all killing us slowly, operating unseen. Praying, fasting cannot deal with the force of evil so strong and so pervasive. Christ Almighty, at least the rebels had the Jedi. What do we have, orgone, what? Fulford, Ventura, Wilcock while they rant, write and bluster I am relying on project camelot to keep up on a war between white hats and black hats? What? Is their no counter to these black magic, satanic rituals. What is the Christians defense a cross, bible. But it’s all gods plan, right. I guess I’ll just roll over and hand my house and my wife to the chinese when they get b/c our leaders have that in mind to pay off the 20+ plus debt. So go to your local city council meeting and ask them to address this voting fraud, ask them to investigate and you’ll be shown the door. We’d better hope some kind of friendly et’s come and help b/c we have nothing, nothing to match these evil doers. I’m an educated man, I’v studied economics in China, Chinese society, what I’ve witnessed 2 days ago has left me really considering moving to Melbourne with my brother. I’ve answered my own question, no more politics, religion, Fox, I’ll drink my booze, only watch sports and settle as yet one more of the ‘happy’ iliterati.

    I love the guy handing over “my house and my wife” to the Chinese, in the sentence after he’s talking about satanic rituals. Dude, really, don’t use up all your irrational fears at once.

    And as for moving to Melbourne (Australia, y’know), in case you haven’t seen it, here is a response to those frantic twitters about that plan. I larfed and larfed and larfed.

    SCIENCE!

    Among the biggest losers on Tuesday was conservative strategist Karl Rove, and not just because his side lost. The Fox News analyst, who questioned his network’s decision to call the election for President Obama on air after earlier incorrectly predicting a Romney victory, also has to reckon with the reality that his big-spending super PAC, American Crossroads, got almost no return on the more than $100 million it spent to influence the election.

    This asumes that winning, not grifting, was the point of the exercise. Krugthulu:

    Well, what if we’ve been misunderstanding Rove? We’ve been seeing him as a man dedicated to helping angry right-wing billionaires take over America. But maybe he’s best thought of instead as an entrepreneur in the business of selling his services to angry right-wing billionaires, who believe that he can help them take over America. It’s not the same thing.

    A guy who has been soullessly jacking his fellow Americans for decades decided to jack his own true believers, who never saw it coming, because (ALL TOGETHER NOW) “Nobody could have predicted…”

    So why are the coal barons surprised by the so-called “war on coal”? Every single reason for the decline of coal is hard to argue. It pollutes more than the alternatives. It’s dangerous, how many coal miners have to die of black lung and cave-ins before that sinks in? It is destructive to the environment, I don’t think I am alone in liking the Appalachian mountain range or in not wanting to see it leveled one boxcar full of coal at a time. As alternatives like natural gas and renewable power become more attractive, why the hell would we buy coal?

    When disposing of the parricide, it’s still important to give the personal touch. A calfskin leather bag shows that you respect the process, and the supple buttery feeling won’t take the sting out of the impact of the red tipped applewood staves. Use only the freshest free range snakes, roosters, dogs and monkeys. Free range animals weren’t confined their whole lives, so they are likely to be stronger and struggle harder when confined in a bag.

    Hm, if only there were some way to quantify what the people think of raising taxes on the rich. Then we could have a rational discussion on what might be politically tenable.

    Teh Catholic Church in Australia has not been meeting its quota:

    Deputy Police Commissioner Graham Ashton told the inquiry that the church had also hindered justice by failing to report a single case of child sex abuse in more than 50 years.

    If you are in charge of an authoritarian religion that has gained control over vulnerable people’s lives by capturing a social function such as education, you shouldn’t suppress all the cases of abuse, but sacrifice just enough malefactors to keep things plausible.

    Major: Do you use racial epithets to describe a past enemy? Do you think wars are a good idea? Do you support the scumbag chickenhawks who start these fucking things?

    I think we all know you well enough to know that none of this is you. You did your job, even if you didn’t agree. I was in the Army, and though I never had the misfortune of going to war, the idea of it was something I struggled with all the time. I never wanted to kill people (despite my anonymous internet ranting, I really don’t want to kill most people).

    So try not to put the responsibility on yourself. I realize that’s probably much easier said than done… We all know better, and we all know that’s part of living in this (or any other) country. The soldiers, marines, airmen and seamen are victims of our wars too. So we strive to put an end to wars by participating in the political process and raising our kids to be aware of the fact that “those people” are people too.

    So some might think this a weird, false equivalence, but at one time I worked at a major defense contractor *cough*Lockheed*cough* developing the next-generation (at the time) Trident missile system. I struggled nonstop with the guilt of working on something that I hated even the idea of as a peace-loving hippie wannabe.

    Thank bog they were never used. I’d hate to think that I’d helped, in whatever tiny way, kill millions of people. In this modern world, all of us are complicit to some degree.

    some *observations* of the strange happenings since obama’s re-election from the hooterville independent’s wingnut editor, who btw, really was hoping for a huckabee/cain ticket:

    General Petraeus suddenly resigning just prior to the start of an investigation on the Benghazi attack?

    And the resignation of Sec. of State Hillary Clinton?

    And the news of $9.00 per gallon gas in the offing?

    And of big money boys pulling their dollars out of the stock market, fearing gloom days a-coming?

    Lastly, have you heard that a large group of folks in Louisiana are working to get enough signers to petition to seced from the Union? Please note this is fact, comes from a long-time friend wse know and trust from Louisiana.

    we were also treated to an editorial by Cal Thomas and of course the editor’s own nitwit opinions which basically half of the country is unpatriotic mooching drug and sex fiends who want a bunch of stuff…

    although there was a great letter to the editor from a county financial worker who totally reamed his ass about the ‘welfare lady buys single grape to get money off her ebt card’ he printed last week and another from a guy who called for the wingnuts to calm the fuck down and was a counterpoint to eric dondero…

    along with assorted local election news, church calendars, high school sports, and a plethora of typos and atrocious grammar, that’s pretty much the hooterville indigestion in a nutshell…i will accept your thanks for saving you the $45/year subscription…

    Ooh the super scary agenda 21 that says we should plan for the future! It’s an outrage to have the UN say we should build neighborhoods that will still be usable if energy gets a lot more expensive. How dare they tell us we should leave some forests standing and not pollute. What gives them the right to say we should pay attention to public health and fight diseases and birth defects and stuff? They must be up to no good. Why would the UN suggest that stores be within walking distance of homes and that roads have bike lanes, except to further their diabolical plots? Will nothing stop this perfidious betrayal of all that is good and righteous?

    I worked at a customer service call center for HVAC products a number of years ago. Every so often, one of the women with whom I worked would have to transfer an HVAC installer to my extension, because he believed that his question could not be answered by a woman, despite those women having more experience and technical knowledge than me. It was always a struggle to remain polite as I provided tech support to the individual who had just revealed himself to be at least a sexist if not a downright moron. The weird thing is, they never seemed hateful, just puzzled that anyone could possibly expect their issue to be resolved by a woman. I would have had a hard time retaining a civil demeanor if those installers had been doing that to make some sort of asinine political point.

    Weren’t they? Because every account I heard of people trying this they were rejected within a couple hours – the complaint was that it wasn’t instant, and that it was done by the credit card company rather than the campaign. Also, do they forget Romney held ACTUAL FUNDRAISERS in foreign countries? I suppose it’s possible only expat US citizens went to those, in which case why do Farah et alia think those same people can’t use the internet and a US-issued credit card to donate?

    IKWYM, Helmut. My wife is an architect, general contractor, and now, a realtor. She used to wear work boots and a hard hat on the job, which was to take over problem construction projects and get people to do whatever the fuck it took to finish the job so that the surety bonds could be released.

    A regular part of her job was overcoming the obstruction, politicking, lying, [attempted] backstabbing, and downright defiance by bigoted assholes who felt that it wasn’t a job a woman could or should do. And it pissed them off even more when she came in, found the problem, saw the solution, and made it happen. It happened Every. Damn. Time.

    She found it amusing. I found it enraging.

    She got really good at identifying the assholes right off the bat, too. They universally drove the biggest trucks – that was the tell.

    Holy Fuck.

    David Frum on Morning Joe, sounding more like Robert Reich:

    the fact that millions of Americans don’t have health insurance, they don’t get to be on television. And it is maybe a symptom of a broader problem, not just the Republican problem, that the economic anxieties of so many Americans are just not part of the national discussion at all. I mean, we have not yet emerged from the greatest national catastrophe, the greatest economic catastrophe since the Great Depression. And what are we talking about? The deficit and the debt. And these are important problems, but they’re a lot easier to worry about if you are wealthier than you were in 2008, which most of the people on television now are again, if you are securely employed, which most of the people on television now are. But that’s not true for 80% of America.

    I agree but, the american people are gutless and don’t give a damb as long as they get their free hand outs. If the democrates were found guilty of this they wouild only spend a few years in a counrty club prison were they would be treated like some kind of f – -king royalty anyway this also aplies to republicans thats why there should term limits to congress and the senette 4 years max then they leave take a cut inpay and lose there health care that they now have and be forced to pay higher premiemons and to get a real job.

    Suezboo: Thanx. You stay strong too.

    You are perceptive: I assumed you were keeping a low profile during election season so as not to rile up the other Sadlies…

    That was certainly an element, perhaps. But I wasn’t low profile; I left Sadlytown altogether. No look-ins, no lurking, nada. I doubt whether I could have remained ‘low profile’ because

    …WARNING…WARNING…WARNING… Fenwick Rants bearing two-six-niner !

    I have deeply-held views about United States politics that are quite different from those held by most liberal, progressive, and ‘pragmatic’ Democrats, and (judging from half-remembered, months-ago threads) that includes mostly all Sadlies.

    Moreover, I am by nature combative, aggressive, and scornful in argumentation. (I lost some speaker points in HS debate for sarcasm.) Worst of all, I’ve got a short fuse….especially when it comes to US politics. And the explosive is always super-aggravated in Presidential years.

    I could see it coming way back in March or April or whenever it was: The Nader-elected-Bush canard–idiotic (or ignorant) though it is–had already been deployed in Sadlyville. As was the ‘purist’ label indiscrimately plastered on any refusniks to the Corporate Uni-Party. Lectures by ‘pragmatists’ who understand ‘the realities’ of politics in the Electoral College system. In short, I could see the early roll-out of the Usual Memes, beginning even in Sadlyville.

    ————————-

    Yes, there was that, suezboo. But even more important, I did not to want ‘rile up’ myself. ((I have clearly regressed while writing this, I do believe))

    I left Sadlyville at the same time that I entered the clinic, or so I remember. I’m almost sure I left a ‘foreshadowing’ note on SN about my application for the clinic. Did I leave an note on SN after admission into the clinic? I sure meant to, peeples. I didn’t want to disappear without any exlpanation. Can any archive search wizards help me out? Damn, I do not like the decline in my memory.

    At the time I entered the clinic I needed to avoid stressors, if at all possible. Politics was the easiest and most obvious stressor to discard. So I slipped out of Sadlytown (the name flucuates, y’unnerstand, sometimes it’s Sadlyburg) and cut my politics-watching w-a-y down. Limited to scanning leftie newsites, punching into 538 from time-to-time. Absolutely no e-mail politics to family and friends (thus breaking a long and noble tradition begun in 1996).

    …WARNING…WARNING…WARNING… Fenwick Digressions bearing zero–two–three….

    Politics in the Age of Dinosaurs.

    I have been a US politics junkie much of my life. My first ‘awareness’ of politics was 1960, which ultimately ended up Kennedy vs Nixon. I followed the primaries too. (The Republican primary was, if I remember, the last hurrah of papa Romney.) The conventions were an absolute blast, completely unlike the shiny, shiny pre-scripted conventions of today. In the the olden days of my youth–when dinosaurs roamed the earth–there were ‘favorite son’ candidates. that is, a governor holding ALL of his delegates as a single block for bargaining. (Ya gotta remember this is before most states had primaries.) Some roll-calls were subtle tactical games, best embodied by the ‘passing’ and ‘yielding to’ ploys. Intrigue aplenty and terrific drama. Yessirree Bob, that’s the way it was back in the Olden Days of gavel-to-gavel coverage on black-and-white tee-vees. Anyway, I’ve been interested in US politics since I was a boy.

    Fenwick as Carnak

    The whole Democratic 2008 primary was a hoot and a half, especially after it boiled down to Obama vs Clinton. Plenty of fun in the Republican primary also: Mike Huckabee & Chuck Norris, the Mittster, and the multiple resurrections of St. McCain. I was already locked into 538.

    The day before the elections, I sent a blanket e-mail to my family and friends with my state-by-state predictions in both Presidential and Senatorial elections.

    I called only three states wrong: (1) had Obama winning Missouri … (2) did not forsee Indiana going Blue … and (3) took a flutter on Georgia going for Obama, and lost. (Hey! I gotta play a hunch now and again.) Missouri and Indiana were almost a swap-out on EV’s; thus my Electoral Count was only off by Georgia.

    Called all of the 2008 senatorial races correctly, except one. Franken was razor-thin and followed by nerve-wracking months, but I got it correct. The failure was, in fact, part of my Georgia hunch: I called the Senate race going to a runnoff… and the Democratic candidate winning the runoff.

    In my scenario, ya see, Obama risks some of his new-found political capital and uses his star-quality as President-Elect and his pizzazz as a campaigner to push the D-candidate over the top in the run-off. ((What? You’ve never taken a flutter in filling out the NCAA brackets? Never pencilled in a 15 seed taking out a #2, huh?) ) Well, my prediction was half-right: There was a run-off, but the US got another six years of Saxby Chambliss

    In retrospect, it was a silly premise; the Secret Service would mos def have vetoed it. But the Democrats sure could have reinforced Georgia in the interval before the run-off election: Bus in legendary 08 volunteers / GOTV / phone-banking; organization and resources (including $). They coulda done that at least. They didn’t. If the Democrats bring it off, they don’t need to wait for Al Franken: Ya got a super-majority from the get-go.

    Anyway, Howard Dean is politely shown the door, and Rahm Emmanuel immediately begins dismantling the 50-state strategy. Where’s the fun in that, for pete’s sake?

    2012 : No drilling down into the numbers, no close and detailed tracking, no conversations, no e-mails, no predictions

    (Of course with Oreos 2012 season, I had a golden replacement for ALL of those things. I will surely tell the episode wherein Fenwick himself witnessed the end of an era sitting in Section 18, Row 5, Seat 6…..1B field level at Camden Yards. Hey, we need to have some baseball in the off-season. (At least bbfk will enjoy it, I hope.)

    okay…here’s my rough draft:

    Please do not send me any more emails like this. Whatever ‘claims’ these videos are making is completely false, which is made clear in the resolution that came out of Rio de Janeiro in 1992–the first principle being: Human beings are at the centre of concerns for sustainable development. They are entitled to a healthy and productive life in harmony with nature.”

    Also, Agenda 21 has been out there since 1972 and was signed on to by George W. Bush. Bill Clinton also pledged his support as has Obama, but not much really has been done to implement any of it’s suggestions (it is a non-binding resolution, btw), so this isn’t something that the evil Obama administration has cooked up in order to implement socialism and sharia law in our country.

    People like Glenn Beck serve only to spread falsehoods, misinformation and fear…and for what purpose? All you’ve accomplished is to make me angry and to promote a paranoid fantasy that is simply not going to happen. I actually feel sorry for people who get pulled in by the Becks, the “American Thinkers,” and the Limbaughs…it seems like a scary world to live in…

    And you’re also letting his correspondents know his head’s up his ass and what the real story is, so good all around.

    yeah, i’m now actually thinking about thanking him for sending that to me since i was pretty much unaware of agenda 21…but now that i see it serves to promote mankind with an emphasis on the poor, women, the elderly and the disabled, i am soooooo behind it! i will tell him that thanks to him, i will do what i can to promote agenda 21…after all, i DO have a direct interest in it in that i want to see my daughter and everyone like her to have safe and more than adequate housing and care…so i will work to promote it and to promote policies that don’t advocate cutting entitlements and services…services to the disabled are always on the chopping block, so it is a real fear for me…not that bronco is going to do away with my child, but that the goopers will, through lack of funding…ooooh, this is going to be a fun email to write!!!

    how’s this:

    Thanks for sending this on…I’m not sure what these videos are trying to say, but they did get me to look up Agenda 21 which seems like a really good thing to promote…especially since the first principle of the resolution that came out of Rio de Janeiro in 1992 is: Human beings are at the centre of concerns for sustainable development. They are entitled to a healthy and productive life in harmony with nature.” That seems like a really good thing to promote, since I would like there to be a sustainable world for not only my children but also my grandchildren. I really like that the resolution emphasizes special focus to help women, the urban and rural poor, the elderly and those with disabilities.

    I also did not know that Agenda 21 has been around since 1972 and was signed on to by George H.W. Bush. Bill Clinton also pledged his support as has Obama, but not much really has been done to implement any of it’s suggestions (it is a non-binding resolution, btw), so this isn’t something that the Obama administration has cooked up in order to implement Socialism and Sharia Law in our country.

    Mine and Aidan’s world depends on what some call Socialism, but the truth is that she wouldn’t receive all the services she does without government assistance…in fact all her care is subsidized. It has been a joy to see her not only grow, but thrive where she is at. But every year, it seems the costs of services go up and funding gets cut because it’s not as important as missiles or tax breaks for corporations. This is the reality we face every day and I really worry about the day when no funding is available…

    So, adopting strategic plans like Agenda 21 puts my mind at ease a bit…knowing that there are a group of people dedicated to making the world a better place no matter who or where they are…I truly hope the US steps up it’s commitment to this project…

    here’s a link that will tell you all about it: http://www.un.org/esa/dsd/agenda21/index.shtml
