Ride on, Ride on, Ride on! Be careful though, this is unsafe at any speed.

I’m assuming that, like me, you’re already kinda’ bored with the Wons bike ridin’.

still happy

And have seen all you want of our DIC (Dweeb-In-Chief):

dic dweeb in chief Are those white anklets!?! What a dweeb!

So I say we move on to an entirely different kind of Ride.

Now I know, we just did this a week or so ago, butt seriously: can you ever have too many posts about classic cars? And while there are thousands of “classic car cruise nights” all across America, the biggest and the bestest takes place on the third Saturday of August in metropolitan Detroit, home of the American automobile. Dubbed  the “Dream Cruise” - shorthand for the “American Dream Cruise” - the cruisers celebrate the American Dream, which in no small part relied on the independence created by owning a set of wheels to help you move up and on. Which is why a car will soon be a human right in Detroit, along with food, water and cable TV.

The official cruise starts at 9:00 AM today butt the 16 mile route along historic Woodward Avenue has been filled with classic cars, muscle cars, street rods, and custom vehicles all week.

Here are a few of my favorite shots from the pre-cruise:

So go ahead, post your favorite classic ride again. It’s summer and, all rumors to the contrary, it’s still America. And we are all tired to death of the antics of our “Ride On!” Presidential-Resident-In-Chief” (do the math yourself on the acronym).

So return with me if you will, to a much simpler time in America. When the American car was king and Barry was just a little tyke on a bike instead of the PRIC he is. (Okay, I did it for you. You’re welcome.).


Whoa - that’s a sweet ride in the background! I can’t identify it for sure, butt I sure hope it’s not a Corvair. Those suckers were unsafe at any speed!

On the other hand, it may have been an omen (see Gerard’s prescient comment).

Today’s Traveling Music:

Dancing Queen: ABBA

Who would have predicted that in the 6th Year of Obama there would be race-fueled rioting and looting going on in America’s heartland while the American President danced and golfed on Martha’s Vineyard?

And speaking of Dancing Queens, I suppose you’ve heard that David Gregory is officially leaving Meet the Press in order to spend more time dancing with his family?

Alert: “The Bear is Loose” - Big Hugs To Follow

You’re probably wondering how the Great Hug-Out over at Vern’s house went last night. While it started out a bit awkwardly:

hug bo no hands“I’ll never let you down again.”

By all accounts Hillary apologized profusely to Big Guy,

i-come-in-peace5“I’m sorry I threatened to eat you, little dog. I completely forgot you were black for a minute there.”

And now everything is the way it used to be:

medo-the-bear-cub-hugs-dog“You can stop chewing on my ear now.”

And now Hilz and Beary are best friends forever again.

rat with teddy bear1

And remember kids: Sometimes you get the bear, and sometimes the bear gets you:

Obama, we have been told, is frustrated, “restless,” bored with the responsibilities and chores of office. He thinks of himself as the bear—intimidating, wild, untamed, roving—escaping his den. But he is flattering himself. Obama is not the bear. He is the cub: aimless, na├»ve, self-interested, self-indulgent, irresponsible, irresolute. The bear is…(fill in the blank)

Amerika’s Son-Of-A-Beach: Sub-Par

Boy, it’s not just Ferguson, Missouri; racism is breaking out all over the place. For example, have you seen what Dana Milbank wrote?

President Obama must really be teed off.

Hillary Rodham Clinton, his once-loyal secretary of state and his likeliest successor, has gone rogue, criticizing his foreign policy as too timid.

Obama responded with not one but two rounds of golf.

And even Jimmy Fallon is writing racist jokes now:

After spending yesterday at the beach, Obama said, “This has been fun, but I should really get the golf course.”

What is it with the obsession with Big Guy’s vacation? When candidate Obama said this about PRESIDENTIAL VACATIONS in 2008 did people think that he meant it literally?

“You have to understand that if you seek that office, then you have to be prepared to give your life to it. Essentially, the bargain that I think every President strikes with the American people is, ‘you give me this office, then in turn my fears, doubts, insecurities, foibles, need for sleep, family life, vacations, leisure, is gone. I am giving myself to you.”

Racists everywhere are asking “can we give him back?”

In other Obama-vacation news, BO rubbed elbows with a crowd of fellow vacationers and told them he was having fun despite Globull Warming having caused the ocean to be unusually cold this year. And he said that the first family spent time with some seals on the beach on Monday:

"We were hanging out with some seals this afternoon who came by and said hello," he said.

I trust they were not from Seal Team Six.


We don’t really talk about them anymore.


By the way, today’s course is unnamed as of yet, but yesterday we played the Vineyard Golf Club of Edgartown. Round 30 of the year, 187 of the presidency, in case anyone’s keeping score.

The Death of Mork and Mearth


mork the day mearth arrivesThe world has lost the Father of Mearth

winters mearthmork mindy mearth

Like many of us, Mork, father of Mearth,  yearned for a return to a simpler time; for the Happy Days:

mork ritchie and fonzie

In the end however, the current world proved too much for Mork from Ork.

And although his job was that of a comic, he wasn’t really like that; he was actually more of a nerdy student when he was young. Was he the class clown? Au contraire:

"No, no, I was PRESIDENT OF THE CLASS, " pronounces Williams, giving the honor the deep-ringing reverence it deserves. "I loved school, maybe too much really. I was summa cum laude in high school. I was driven that way. I can't say it was easy to fit in. I just went out of my way to fit in. It was a private boys school, Detroit Country Day, and I played soccer. I was on the wrestling team. Mr. All-Around, you know?” – Detroit Free Press

In fact, he might actually have been the smartest man in the room.

Unlike the man who just thinks he’s the smartest man in the room but undoubtedly graduated somewhere much closer to the other end of the class.

barack_obama_smoking_weed_picture002Smokin’ doesn’t make you smart, it just makes you think you are.

Rest in Peace Robin, and thanks for the memories…

“Cold hearted Orb that rules the night…butt we decide which is “right” and which is illusion.”

Good Morning. Did everyone enjoy the SuperMoon last night? If not, Big Fur Hat at iOTW has recreated it for you here. Apologies in advance.

And not to toot my own horn - well, okay, I am tootin’ – butt I first covered this cheeky move way back in 2012: “Visas, Volts, and Cheeky Ads.”

And speaking of big butts,

article-2720212-205E77EE00000578-520_634x826I see that Hillary is trying to haul hers out of a deep crevice by distancing herself from Barry’s failed Peace Policies in the Middle East:

Clinton attributed the rise of jihadists affiliated with Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIS or ISIL) in Syria to the White House's "failure" to do more to back other rebels who have been fighting the regime of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad since 2011.

"The failure to help build up a credible fighting force of the people who were the originators of the protests against Assad—there were Islamists, there were secularists, there was everything in the middle—the failure to do that left a big vacuum, which the jihadists have now filled," Clinton said.

Well thanks for that insight; too bad you didn’t have it at the time. Oh wait…what?! You did!?

In the Atlantic interview, Clinton noted she "advocated" doing more to support a "core group" of Free Syrian Army fighters opposed to Assad. She argued this would have, potentially, helped oust the Syrian leader and would have given the U.S. better knowledge of the situation in the country.
Read more:

Too bad she didn’t mention that at the time. Oh, and speaking of other things she failed to mention at the time, there’s this about Iran’s nuclear program – she didn’t agree with that either:

"I’ve always been in the camp that held that they did not have a right to enrichment. Contrary to their claim, there is no such thing as a right to enrich.

nuclear-bomb-explosionA right to the Big Portabella (h/t Dennis Miller)

Yeah, the right to enrich is reserved exclusively for our political class.

And finally, with a shot at Big Guy’s fundamental philosophy, Hillz said this:

"Great nations need organizing principles, and 'Don’t do stupid stuff' is not an organizing principle."

Although I would say that if we would stick with that principle we would be in much better shape.

Then Hillz added that her own “organizing principle” is: “Peace, progress, and prosperity.”

Not to be picky, butt that sounds a lot more like a campaign slogan than an organizing principle.

article-2720212-205E75F700000578-857_306x642Speak harshly and leave a big footprint.

In fact, I think it was one of Barry’s. Butt hey – what difference at this point does it make?

Playing the Gamechanger

You’ve probably heard about the successor organization to Ezra Klein’s super-secret JournOlist. This one calls itself the “Gamechanger Salon.”

A prominent CNN commentator, the top two political reporters for The Huffington Post, a Reuters reporter, the editor of The Nation magazine, a producer for Al Jazeera America television, a U.S. News & World Report columnist, and approximately two dozen Huffington Post contributors are among the more than 1,000 members of Gamechanger Salon. 

Founded by leftwing activist Billy Wimsatt, the group is a secretive digital gathering of writers, opinion leaders, activists and political hands who share information, ideas and strategy via a closed Google group. 

Seriously, the only surprise on that list is the Al Jazeera producer: we expected much more from them.

Here’s a look at some of the usual suspects amongst the “GAMECHANGERS.”

CNN: jpg“Oh Barack! You are so right!”


huffpo such a commander“Oh Barack! You are such a Commander!


reuters 'obama visits border' only he doesntOh Barack! You are so brave!

The Nation:

obama nation coverOh Barack! You are so…Progressive!

U.S. World and News Report:

u.s. news vaction reportFor starters, does anyone really believe that the president isn’t plugged in to world and domestic events wherever he goes? Is there something about literally being within the boundaries of the District of Columbia that improves his decision making abilities? Are there concerns about him not getting decent cellphone reception in Massachusetts? The notion that the president can’t do his job from anywhere in the world – with the vast array of technology he has at his disposal, the advisers, as well as foreign leaders, all just a phone call away – is pretty silly. - U. S. News and World Report

Oh Barack! You are so…tech savvy! What kind of balls do you use?

So to all you JournOlists out there who really, really helped change the game in America:


Go ahead, you can go on vacation now, your work here is done too.

Oh Barack! You sooo sunk that putt! Right?
