Ann Coulter Agrees With Me

I wrote yesterday that those who are criticizing Robert de Niro for telling a (stupid) joke need to Give It a Rest.

Ann Coulter agrees:

Ann Coulter defends Robert De Niro joking about GOP candidates’ wives at Obama fundraiser

Coulter via Twitter: ""Can we please stop the fake 'offended' routine? Pls explain what was allegedly offensive about De Niro's joke."

There seems to be no clear-cut answer to her question, but whatever the offense, an Obama spokesperson and half the Democratic Party - along with De Niro himself - have apologized for it.

Yeah, it was off-color ...

Oh, no!  Was I allowed to use that word?!  I didn't mean color!  I meant non-color! ... No!  I meant ...

I sincerely apologize for having ...

Paul Ryan, Nice Guy

Too nice to do anything this decade about America's financial crisis.  The Ryan plan?

Paul Ryan: My Plan Can Balance the Budget in 10 Years

Problem is?  We don't have ten years.

Get our house in order now, or there'll be no house.

A Future Leader of the Democratic Party

I wonder if this crazy bitch will be kicked out of school.  After all, if you listen closely, she threatened to murder a whole host of people on the Florida Atlantic University campus:

Problem is, she's black.  So the normal and accepted rules of societal interaction don't apply.

Still ... Virginia Tech ... Virginia Tech ...

* Here's the story.

Occupy The Asylum

Speaking of crazy people, how's that Occupy movement starting out this spring?


Zombies.  I blame it on zombies.

When You Live In a Monastery ...

... and you're a loon, you believe that "most conservatives now openly reject the very idea of democracy."

The full quote from one Sara Robinson:

"Most conservatives now openly reject the very idea of democracy. Whether it's corporatists seeking to own every branch of government and privatize every public institution, security and intelligence types cracking down on our civil liberties, or Christian nationalists out to turn the country into a theocracy, conservatives are increasingly united by the conviction that Americans cannot be trusted to govern ourselves."

What in the hell is she talking about?  Does she even wander the same planet as the rest of us?

If this nitwit understood anything about us - think Tea Party - she'd know that we conservatives believe in that quaint notion of We the People.  Who, after all, put the Republican Party in power in the House of Representatives in 2010 and will hand control of the Senate to the GOP in 2012?

We the People.

The paragraph is ridiculously boneheaded.  And the author, Sara Robinson, is a liberal.

'nuff said.

No, You're Confused

“The problem is, I’m a male-identified person. As soon as I’m in a space that is all female, my identity gets erased.”

Said the woman who has done her level best to erase her - now his? - identity.

Question: At what point can government be relieved of its obligation to accommodate seriously disordered human beings?

We Are Slaves To The State

Read "Supremes 9, EPA 0." And be ashamed of what your United States government has become.

Yeah, the poor schmucks citizens who found themselves being tortured by the EPA won their case.  But on very narrow grounds.  They'll still be forced to abandon their property.  For absolutely no good reason.

I'll be honest.  I don't want any part of this.

Let the revolution commence.

Obama The Desperate

It'll be interesting today to see if our president's media make mention of any of this:
Obama's Keystone XL Visit A Potemkin Village Photo-Op
Investor's Business Daily

The president stages a photo-op in Oklahoma to take credit for the portion of the Keystone XL pipeline that doesn't need his approval and for oil production on private and state lands beyond his jurisdiction.

If one of his aides some morning remarked on a particularly lovely sunrise, it wouldn't surprise us if President Obama responded with a "thank you," so gifted is he in taking credit for successes that he has nothing to do with and that occur despite, not because, of his policies.

So it will be Thursday, when Obama is scheduled to appear in Cushing, Okla., known as the pipeline capital of the world, to take credit for the southern half of the Keystone XL pipeline, a project announced weeks ago by TransCanada, the Keystone builder.

It's the section that doesn't need presidential or State Department approval since it does not cross an international boundary.

The part that does require State Department approval and a presidential blessing, and which holds as much as 24 billion barrels of oil, runs from the rich oil sands of Alberta, past the booming oil fields of the Bakken shale formation in North Dakota and down to Cushing. It is the portion Obama killed in January. [link]
I wondered the obvious. Why would Obama fly out to Oklahoma to tout a project that he is doing his best to stop?

But then it became clear.

The mainstream press will provide cover for Obama. They'll go along with the burlesque. The media want us to think that Obama isn't part of the gas price problem, that he's part of the cure. They'll do their duty.

The rest of America? We'll be finding it laughable, in an enraging sort of way.

Obama is going to stand at the pipeline that he is trying to prevent from ever being completed and speak to its virtues.

May God have mercy.

Headline of the day, from The Drudge Report:

"Obama Backs Half a Pipeline!"

Funny.  Pathetic.  Typical.
