Live, From The Left Wing…It’s Saturday Night!

“You don’t like a particular policy or a particular president? Then argue for your position. Go out there and win an election." – Barack Obama, October 2013

Butt when you win, don’t expect to get your way. That right is reserved for the Left:

“The election’s over John, I won.” Barack Obama, February 2010

So - we posed for the press,

Whoops! That looks a little too, ah, authentic. Take 2:

and doubled down on our plan to fundamentally transform America.

Butt don’t worry: as long as the Republicans do things the way Barry wants them done, he won’t have to use that dangerous pen of his. He won’t be forced to destroy the Republic in order to save it – as explained by the Josh:

White House press secretary Josh Earnest said Friday that Obama “is very focused on” immigration and that Republicans can do only one thing to stop him.

“They can allow that common-sense, bipartisan bill from the Senate to come to the floor of the House of Representatives,” he said. “And if the House passes that Senate bill, the president won’t take executive action. Maybe the republic will be saved. Maybe the ego of the House Republicans will not be bruised. Certainly, the United States of America would benefit significantly from them taking that step.”

New Management Advises President They Are Closing Harry’s Roach Motel

After staking out what some have deemed to be a defiant position at his Wednesday press conference, Barry will be meeting with Congressional leaders later today, including presumptive Senate Majority Leader, Mitch McConnell, (R-Kentucky) and the Speaker of the House, John Boehner.

Also in attendance will be the current inn-keeper of the Senate Roach Motel, Harry Reid.

capitalWhere Bills from the House of Representatives check in, butt they can never check out (h/t Mike Huckabee)

Harry is appearing today under protest, as Big Guy had assured him repeatedly that “if you like your Senate Majority Leadership, you can keep your Senate Majority Leadership.”

reid-068-021213.JPGHey, welcome to our world Harry!

country back3

So we don’t expect a lot of cooperation there. Ditto John Boehner, who’s already gone on record dissing BHO’s assertion that he’s going to pursue executive action on immigration before the end of the year if need be - in that low key, totally non-defiant way he has:

bo pen_thumb[8]“I’m warning you amigos: you’ve got 6 weeks to pass immigration, after that my pen goes it alone.”

The Speaker responded:

Boehner said the issue has become a "political football." Obama is said to be looking at suspending deportations for millions. To the president, Boehner said: "When you play with matches, then you take the risk of burning yourself, and he's going to burn himself if he continues to go down this path."

Butt not everything is looking so grim: Barry has indicated a willingness to meet with Mitch McConnell on his own turf: offering to hit the Kentucky Bourbon Trail with him. That’s good because everyone knows you catch more flies with sour mash than you do with sour grapes. So I say, let’s hit it!


Otherwise, you know how those angry Teahadists can get;


grapes,angrymobBeware the grapes of wrath once they decide to fight fire with fire

they’ll start making all sorts of unreasonable demands like “secure the border, end illegal immigration, and deport all illegal felons.”

So have a shot or two of good old fashioned American bourbon Big Guy and chill awhile. Put your matches down, take your feet off the desk and step away from the pen. Perhaps President Obama could even benefit by taking his own good counsel (from a podcast in 2006 discussing the 2006 midterm results):

Obama concluded with a warning to the president, "if President Bush is stubborn, refuses to take signals from the election that the American people are looking for a different approach, then we could get bogged down and not make progress."

I guess that’s unlikely, butt as the author points out:

Nobody expects President Obama to take Senator Obama's advice, but it's always fun to throw the words of an insincere charlatan back at his face:

“I stand with those who sat on the sidelines and did not vote.”

When HOPE is no longer enough to drag you over the finish line there’s only one thing to do: change the rules.

tic_tac_toeIf you’re losing, CHANGE the rules

Hence, after his party’s second midterm “shellacking” that term will no longer be acceptable, given its inherent racist overtones.

Shellac-Shellac-At-Action-342677800px-shellac_varitiesShellac: it comes in many shades, all brown

So here are the new rules of our non-functioning democracy: you get a voice if you cast a ballot, butt you get a LOUDER voice if you don’t bother to vote.

“To everyone that voted, I want you to know that I heard you,” Obama began. “To two-thirds of voters that chose not to participate in the process yesterday, I hear you, too.”

Odd he would choose to channel an old dead white guy – the only other sitting President who listened to the vast silent majority. Although in Nixon’s case they became far less silent over time.

obama nixon grimace “The Silent Majority is My Muse”

“I’m the guy who is elected by everybody and not just from a particular state or a particular district,” Obama said when asked to address the “devastating losses” his party endured, “and they want me to push hard to close some of these divisions, break through some of the gridlock, and just get stuff done.”  -Hot Air

There is some “stuff” that those who did bother to vote don’t want him to get done; like amnesty. Even Chris Matthews seems to have figured that out. (Even if you have sworn to never,ever watch anyone on MSNBC, this is worth an exception –yes, all the way to the end.)

It’s particularly ironic that Barry would choose to cite the Silent Majority now, when up till this point he’s  marched exclusively to a couple of very loud, very vocal minorities.

So here are the new rules: If you lose I win, and if you win I win too! Just like in middle school.

you tried gold star

So stop whining and get out of the way of my pen and my phone; I’m not through winning yet.

For the first time in 6 years, I’m proud of my country.

-caution-2 serve you better copyI sure hope this works.

Well, who knew? To quote the Ragin’ Cajun, “it’s the economy, stupid!” - followed closely by Obamacare, immigration, foreign affairs and Ebola. Big Guy was dead on: “make no mistake, my policies are on the ballot.” And the natives have weighed in with a resounding “take your policies and shove them.”

Lady M is fuming because wherever she went, losses followed: Maine gubernatorial candidate Mike Michaud Iowa Maryland Democratic gubernatorial candidate, Anthony Brown, Senate candidate Bruce Baily Braley, Florida gubernatorial candidate Charlie Crist, Colorado senate candidate Mark Udall, Wisconsin gubernatorial candidate Mary Burke …

campaign for losersLosers, all

Big Guy was not even able to get over himself enough to place the customary congratulatory phone call to the new Senate Majority Leader. He only uses his pen and his phone for things he thinks will improve America, not to acknowledge things that you citizens think will improve the country.

So as you can imagine I’ll be laying low for awhile; days like this are always dangerous around here for dogs, mirrors and other breakable objects.

motus TNL-bar

Due to previous election evening commitments Little Mo and I won’t be able to hang out here with you, butt I sure HOPE we all have something to celebrate. 

So you can use my new automated drink order form:


If you check the Democrat box you’ll get a Moscow Mule: vodka, lime, ginger beer in a copper clad tin cup. Save the cup, you’ll be needing it later.



tin cup


If you check the Republican box you can have your choice of any red, white or blue cocktail on the menu.


If you’re just going to whine, well, fine, there’s plenty of that too, in the cellar. Please don’t leave the kind of mess you did after whining about the 2012 election returns however; I’m still negotiating with the insurance companies over that.


So have a good time, rock the boat, or the vote, or whatever. Just don’t do or say anything I wouldn’t (I’m talkin’ to you bettyann and JaniceTheElder). I’ll be by early in the morning to clean up.

Meanwhile, sit back, relax and enjoy this thought:

Obama Gazes at the Moon. The Moon Gazes Back.

It’s election day, 2014.

president-obama-venus-moonObama: gazing at the moon and stars, gazing back at him

Some people think it unimportant:

The Washington Post may have been first in declaring the coming midterms “kind of—and apologies to Seinfeld here—an election about nothing.”

Stephen Hayes tracked the ‘Seinfeld Election’ as it made it’s way through the rest of the supportive Press:

Soon enough this description was popping up everywhere—the New Republic, the Los Angeles Times, the Christian Science Monitor, Bloomberg, Politico, and many others. The 2014 Midterms, the Seinfeld Election.

Alas, if only it were true! Unfortunately, per Mr. Hayes, the opposite is the case: it’s an election about everything:

Not only is this election not about nothing, it is being fought over exactly the kinds of things that ought to determine our elections.

It’s about the size and scope of government. It’s about the rule of law. It’s about the security of the citizenry. It’s about competence. It’s about integrity. It’s about honor.

A good start, butt there’s more:

It’s about a government that makes promises to those who have defended the country and then fails those veterans, again and again and again. It’s about a president who offers soothing reassurances on his sweeping health care reforms and shrugs his shoulders when consumers learn those assurances were fraudulent. It’s about government websites that cost billions but don’t function and about “smart power” that isn’t very smart. It’s about an administration that cares more about ending wars than winning them, and that claims to have decimated an enemy one day only to find that that enemy is still prosecuting its war against us the next. It’s about shifting red lines and failed resets. It’s about a president who ignores restrictions on his power when they don’t suit him and who unilaterally rewrites laws that inconvenience him. It’s about a powerful federal agency that targets citizens because of their political beliefs and a White House that claims ignorance of what its agents are up to because government is too “vast.” In sum, this is an election about a president who promised to restore faith in government and by every measure has done the opposite.

And let me be clear, even Barack agrees that his policies are on the ballot today – and that’s not nothing.

obama policies on ballot

Yesterday we saw Mr. Goodwin’s suggestion that people vote exclusively for Republicans; Lady M made a similar effort to offset that bad advice by telling “her folks” to vote a straight D ticket:


"That's my message to voters. This isn't about Barack, it's not about the person on the ballot, it's about you," Obama told "NewsOne Now" host Roland Martin on TV One. "And for most of the people that we're talking to, a Democratic ticket is the clear ticket that we should be voting on, regardless of who said what or did this. That shouldn't even come into the equation."

So you have your marching orders: let’s get out there and weigh in on the “election about everything.” It would make a great birthday present for former FLOTUS Laura Bush, who is 68 today.

And finally, in other news, a giant shooting star was sighted over Chicago and much of the Eastern United States last night.

Botrytis Cinerea: Worse than Ebola

So, if you were a fruit, what kind of fruit would you be? Barry thought he was a grape:


Unfortunately, with his root stock, Barry’s more of a blackberry: small, prickly, seedy and filled with pith.

blackberry1Butt shiny!

And while you can make wine from blackberries, it doesn’t age well. I’ll let Michael Goodwin at the NYPost explain: 

The presidency is sinking, but we are expected to believe that only the president is blameless.

We are witnessing the total collapse of a bad idea. Obamaism, a quasi-socialist commitment to a more powerful government at home and an abdication of American leadership around the world, is being exposed as a historic calamity. It is fueling domestic fear and global disorder and may well lead to a world war.


[Musical Interlude "Peel Me A Grape"]

Mr Goodwin continues:

For all his narcissism, he didn’t make this mess alone.

He was aided and abetted by every Democrat in Congress. They marched in lockstep with his cockamamie policies, from ObamaCare to open borders. They protected corrupt leaders in numerous federal agencies, from the IRS to the Genera Services Administration. They stymied efforts to find the truth about Benghazi and the Fast and Furious gunrunning debacle.

They ceded their constitutional obligations and allowed Obama to crash the system of checks and balances. The vast majority stood silent while he gutted the military and abandoned our allies, including Israel, Egypt and Saudi Arabia, and courted Iran, the most menacing nation on earth.

With painfully few exceptions, Democrats put their loyalty to him above their duty to America.

And now they must be punished. All of them.(snip)

This is a national emergency and the only responsible action is to vote Republican for every federal office.

So don’t forget - you heard it here first - through the grapevine:

So I’m issuing this important warning: The Obama Hope and Change whines from the 2008-2016 vintages have been tainted by Botrytis cinerea; also known as “bunch rot” it is a necrotizing fungus that robs grapes of all their potential.  Not only will the whine not hold up well, butt in order to prevent the rot from spreading to every vineyard across the great country of America the only option we have is to immediately begin ripping out the infected vines and replace them with vines resistant to the fungus. This job must be completed no later than 2016.

So you all have your assignments, now get out there tomorrow and start rippin’ them out by their roots.

You may recall that back in the early years of the Age of Obama NASA decided to go in a new direction. No longer satisfied with their mission to explore space, they decided to pursue the much sexier goal of promoting Muslim self esteem - because nothing is as important as self esteem.


Since NASA was exiting the rocket business in order to set up a public relations agency, they subcontracted the outer space division to private investors handpicked by bureaucrats. Alas, CHANGE is difficult and the NASA switch proved to be no exception; our outsourced space program has recently experienced a few technical difficulties – specifically, exploding rocket ships.

First the Antares with a payload intended for the joint Russian-US space station exploded six seconds after blastoff:


BOOM! And then, just a day later, Sir Richard’s Virgin Galactic SpaceShipTwo - BOOM TOO! Not as dramatic butt more deadly.


These two disasters so close together sparked the predictable media over-reaction: “Enough With Amateur Hour Space Flight.”

He is, as today’s tragedy shows, a man driven by too much hubris, too much hucksterism and too little knowledge…

Whew! For a minute there I thought he was talking about Big Guy, butt no, he meant Sir Richard Branson.  Still, if the hubris fits…minimally it does make you wish that our ever-vigilant press had been on the case earlier.

Victor Davis Hanson’s article, “Our Make It Up World,” discussed just such a conundrum – although he didn’t think we had faced it yet:

So far, political mythmaking has been confined to popular culture and politics, and has not affected the ironclad facts and non-negotiable rules of jetliner maintenance, heart surgery, or nuclear-plant operation. Yet the Ebola scare has taught us that even the erroneous news releases and fluid policies of the CDC can be as likely based on politics as hard science.

That’s right, anecdotal research (which is pretty much all we do anymore) has confirmed that basing complicated decisions requiring specific technical knowledge on politics rather than hard science (a technique known as postmodern science, aka “post normal science”) is a bad idea. Case in point: taking the Aeronautics and Space out of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration in order make room for Muslim self esteem – as explained here -  may not have been the best call.

Mr. Bolden explains the mandate given to him by President Obama:

"One, he wanted me to help re-inspire children to want to get into science and math; he wanted me to expand our international relationships; and third, and perhaps foremost, he wanted me to find a way to reach out to the Muslim world and engage much more with dominantly Muslim nations to help them feel good about their historic contribution to science, math, and engineering."

However, with the latest two space accidents we may have hit the wall where irresistible force (politics) meets immovable object (science).  - video brought to you compliments of Raj and Minute Physics.

Or, as Janice the Elder explained the other day, this really IS rocket science.

photo12-300x151h/t Janice the Elder

So-oooo, before we blow anything/anyone else up I’ve decided to launch a campaign to reverse the effects of the self esteem movement, Common Core math and postmodern science. As has become our habit, I’ve decided to do it through social media. And I think I’ve lined up the perfect SPOX for my campaign to #EndTheWarOnScience. Your thoughts?
