Hey look, it's Abortion Barbie with a shotgun!

abortion barbie with a shotgun

Showing that she has more skill lying about her personal life than handling a firearm, Wendy Davis appeared at some Dem fundraiser and attempted to not look like a complete fool handling a shotgun.


Although to be fair, she looks just as competent as our Commander-In-Chief (and double digit bowler), when it comes to holding a shotgun. So I'm sure Dems are high-fiving each other now talking about how "real" Davis is and so on.


Btw, not exactly on the same point, but go here and read this. Not sure who pulled Peggy Noonan's head out of her ass, but it looks like she's finally seeing what the rest of us conservatives have been railing about for the last 5 years.

Immigration reform

The House released a statement of principles on immigration reform that was met with the very predictable derision from right wing bloggers. Chief among their complaints, was why now? I'm inclined to agree with those who believe that the coming mid-term elections have the real possibility of Republicans retaking control of the Senate. And that would very probably come with an increase of Tea Party candidates taking seats in both chambers. Hence the push for an immigration policy written by more moderate members while they have the chance.

I like to think of myself as a Libertarian/Conservative blend. But there are also some things that have to be realized in this particular situation. And one is that we can't simply just round up 12 million people and bus them out of the country! There has to be some mechanism to get these folks identified, and the criminals deported, without going all Gestapo on them.

And despite the hyperbole by even those with whom I usually agree, we cannot punish the children of these law breakers for the sins of their parents. In a recent post by the execrable Allahpundit, the afore mentioned Chamberlainesque RINO candy-ass brought up Mike Huckabee's favorables in pre-election polling. That brought out the usual moronic talk of not voting, yada, yada . . . as well as the usual lies about Huck's record on immigration while governor of Arkansas.

The point about his tuition assistance for illegals is always misrepresented. In fact, Huck's proposal was that children of illegals (the derisively termed DREAMers), if they had matriculated through the Arkansas primary school system, and if they qualified academically for tuition assistance, would be allowed to apply for such assistance. And if granted, those students would have to apply for and pass a citizenship test, thus becoming American citizens before getting tuition assistance.

I just don't see a problem with that. Isn't this what we want? Citizens, legal citizens? Taxpaying, law-abiding citizens? But this is one of the stumbling blocks with those on the right. While I have repeatedly said that I would rather Republicans run on principle and lose than win and be RINO's, I still recognize the reality that politics is about compromise. And this is a point I think we can compromise on without sacrificing principle.

The mission statement out of the House was naturally short on specifics, as all mission statements are, but it is a starting point. I don't see why we cannot reform immigration while still having proper teeth in the bill to prevent illegals from using their children as anchors, why we cannot punish those who willfully and knowingly hire illegals, and do something about border security that doesn't include building a huge fence around the entire country.

Simply hating on these guys for bringing it up is pointless. The House has been passing bills since the Republicans took control. I think it is a good thing to show the American people that only one party is actually trying to follow the Constitution and do their duty. And it isn't the Democrats.

And because she makes me ache (in a good way), here's my girl Slyyy -- all wet and wonderful:

Scarlett Johansson doesn't heart Oxfam anymore

Or maybe it's the other way around, I don't know.

But if you've missed it, Johansson has become the spokesperson for SodaStream, an Israeli company. An Israeli company with offices in the West Bank. Yeah, You know where that's going.

The usual hate groups have been pressuring Johansson through Oxfam to get her to pull out of her association with SodaStream. Funny thing is, Oxfam's all about world poverty and so on, and SodaStream employs Palestinians as well as Israelis, providing good paying jobs and industry to an area that needs it. You'd think Oxfam would be down with that.

But no, like the cowards they are, they've knuckled under to the hate groups and tried to get Johansson to do the same. Happily, she gave them the middle finger and withdrew from Oxfam instead, citing SodaStream's efforts to help everyone in the West Bank.

Johansson's a big Obama supporter, and I can't forget about that, but she gets some kudos for having principles in this case.

scarlett johansson see thru

As an added attraction, here's the movie poster of Scarlett in character as Black Widow for the new Captain America movie. Notice how they seemlessly photoshopped her face (sans beauty mark and such) onto Courtney Stodden's body. It's really hard to notice, because one thing we know about Scarlett is that she's tall and leggy and narrow hipped with impressive cleavage just like Courtney. I guess one out of four isn't too bad:

scarlett johansson / black widow movie poster

Al Gore hearts Margaret Sanger

Or something to that effect . . .

It seems the Goreacle was at a conference in Switzerland recently where he went on about how the best thing we can do for poverty in Africa is start handing out condoms and putting Planned Parenthood abortion clinics in every village.

Echoing a similar comment he made a few years ago, Gore said that "... making fertility management ubiquitously available so [African] women can choose how many children and the spacing of children, is crucial to the future shape of human civilization."

Now if Mitt Romney had suggested something like this, we'd be hearing loud and long about the War on Women, and racism and such. But if the Goreacle wants to get his Eugenics on? I'm sure MSNBC has got his back.

Call me crazy, but isn't the biggest problem in Africa the endless civil wars, rampant disease, the jaw-dropping lack of civil developments and so forth? I could have sworn that I read somewhere that birth rates in pretty much all countries were on the decline.

So claiming that reducing the birth rate in an underdeveloped country is going to have an effect on the Global Climate is ridiculous enough, without dredging up the specter of Sanger's racist claptrap about stopping undesirables from reproducing.

Palate cleanser

And because I need something to get the taste of that SOTU trainwreck last night out of my mouth --

It appears that Watchmen hottie Malin Akerman has a sister named Jennifer. And she's pretty hot herself:

Ahhh . . . much better :-)

Lies, damned lies, and President Obama

I could barely get through last night's State of the Union address. Have they always been this bad? Or is it just this divisive President? I was no fan of Bill Clinton, but I don't remember his SOTU's being so filled with bullsh*t.

Lies, damned lies and statistics. It's amazing that we have a President of the United States standing before Congress and the American people and spitting out easily debunked falsehoods that I would expect from one of those morons at MSNBC:

Can someone name a job, any job, where a woman hired at the same time as a man, for the same job, is making less money? Anyone?

Labor participation is at the lowest rates since the Carter administration (misery index, anyone?). We're not adding jobs at a rate to keep pace with population growth, so what's this guy crowing about?

Obamacare?! Really?! The President didn't even have the juevos to mention his "signature" achievement by name during the speech. Studies show that nearly 90% of all enrollments already had insurance and young people (the lifeblood of funding for this mess) are avoiding the program like it's a Lena Dunham nude scene.

Feel good bill about federal worker pay that will do pretty much nothing? Executive orders on infrastructure that aren't held up because of red tape but simply don't have funding? Newsflash Mr. President, you weren't elected King! There is partisan gridlock in Washington because you have taken the "my way or the highway" approach to governing since your first days in office! Compromise means you don't get all you want either. Your political opponents aren't supposed to be the only ones giving something up at the barganing table!

And propping up a wounded soldier for cheap applause?! Disgraceful! Especially coming from a President, and political party, that has shown such disdain for our military.

Below is the Tea Party response to the SOTU. Listen carefully to when Rep. Mike Lee begins enumerating the bills put forth by he and other Republicans in the House. And remember which party is actually not doing their job in Washington:

And while I'm at it, here's the official Republican response to the SOTU as given by Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers. Over at HotAir, Ed Morrissey is waxing breathless about how McMorris Rodgers is a hidden gem within the GOP and how she's the sort of face conservatives should be putting out in front for the mid-term elections. As described by WaPo's Robert Costa, McMorris Rodgers is:
"It was as if a Republican pollster had somehow created a politician with the exact profile that Republicans are looking to promote [...which includes a son with Down syndrome and a Navy veteran husband...] as they head toward this year’s midterm elections. Here was a pro-life, never offensive Republican woman from a Western state who grew up picking apples on a farm; a youthful, 44-year-old Republican who is known as one of the most savvy social-media users in the House, uploading countless photos to Instagram and videos to Vine."

Gee . . . pulls herself up by the bootstraps mom, handicapped child, down home common sense from the western states, savvy social media user . . . doesn't that sound like a certain former governor whom Ed and other mainstream conservative pundits hate and wish would just go away? Just sayin . . .

A couple of questions here

Is Emily Osment old enough to be posting pics of herself like this:

emily osment bondage

Checks wiki page . . . sighs in relief   Okay, she's almost 22 years old. Still . . . is she in the 50 Shades movie? Or self auditioning for a part ala Sean Young for Catwoman (and we all know how that turned out)? Or just getting her freak on?


In the battle of big cut-out dresses . . .

. . . I think Joanna Krupa gets the win:

Better hair, nicer curves, more cleavage gonna win it every time. Paris gets an honorable mention, but points off for that unflattering hairdo:

Those are the sorts of outfits where you can't be in a hurry to get anywhere because walking with any sort of pace is gonna cause a commotion if you know what I mean.

Daily Duffster

Newly separated Hilary Duff (still sad about that) was out looking her exquisitely adorable self last week:

So my 'puter's been down

I've got an old Dell Dimension 4550 that I use as my desktop. It's a bit slow by today's standards, but it runs XP, which I (along with millions of businesses) prefer, and I'm hesitant to upgrade. Well it's getting a bit cranky these days and doesn't like to reboot anymore. So when Windows sends one of it's midnight updates, I wake up to a non-running computer. This last time, she simply wouldn't start up, no matter what I did. I was ready to call the geek guys when I finally got her going last night.

I've got a 2TB stand alone harddrive that I've been moving stuff to, but the move isn't complete by a long shot. And there's some software with pre-populated usercodes and such that I haven't moved yet, so I've been a bit out of it for a week or so. Did I miss much? Let's see:

With no more elections to worry about, our President is doubling down on his divisive racist rhetoric. He did an interview (thought I saved the paper, but I guess not) where he said that if you're a conservative who believes in fiscally responsible government, a return to the constitutional republic that the founders envisioned, and so on, well, you're just a closet racist who longs for the days pre-civil rights era and you should just admit it.

I can imagine that sort of racist dreck from an MSNBC host, but a sitting President -- eesh!

There's a lawsuit in Florida now to overturn the state's ban on same sex marriages. According to writers at the Tampa Bay Times, we need to think of the children of these marriages and overturn the law for them.


Less than 4% of the population identifies itself as LGBT. Exactly how many children of these couples are there? That referendum was overwhelmingly passed in this state. So we're talking about overturning a law to appease less than 4% of the state's population that has chosen an alternative lifestyle? I don't have a problem with civil unions. It always amazes me that when all the talk about this stuff winds down, it always comes to money. Same sex couples want tax breaks and access to retirements and entitlements, never much talk about church weddings and such. Though they always seem to want to break it off in organized religion.

Here's my thing -- homosexuality is a choice, plain and simple. Despite the millions wasted on desperate research (that could have better been used to feed the hungry, help aids patients, etc.) to find a genetic cause, there is none. And whether you believe in God, or Darwin, or some permutation on Intelligent Design, we were designed to be heterosexual. We need to be heterosexual for the propagation of our species. If you, as an adult, chose an alternative lifestyle, bully for you. But forcing laws upon the 96+% of the world that isn't in your lifestyle simply to salve your delicate egos is the definition of tyranny of the minority.

In less trying areas:

Despite not having won a tournament in 4 years, Anastasia Ashley is the world's most famous surfer because she keeps Instagrammin' that ass and doing celeb send ups:

Miley got topless again, this time with bodypaint and sparkles. Girl better start churning out more music, this shtick will run its course pretty quickly:

Taylor Momsen's new album cover is out. Yep, she's naked too. This sort of thing was more shocking back in the 70s when Roxy Music was doing it, but I still prefer her music to Miley's:

And Taylor Swift went shopping, ass still not included, though it seems someone told her about padded bras 'cause:

Now back to my back-upping . . .

Do newspapers have sockpuppets?

I've been wondering about that for a while now. The Tampa Bay (formerly St. Pete) Times publishes some amazingly dense letters in their Your Letters section of the editorial page. I've always wondered whether people are really that dumb, or blindly indoctrinated, or perhaps they're just trolls -- writing what they think the paper wants to hear so they'll get published. Now I'm sort of wondering if someone in the editorial section dreams these things up to keep various memes going.

In today's paper, the suspiciously named F.M. Younglove of Brandon trotted out the class warfare meme using Mitt Romney as punching bag. He writes in part:
The man who isn't president (Mitt Romney) is a perfect example. When a person can make $22 million a year and pay less than 14 percent income tax, it is safe to say progressive tax rates are all but gone.

Really?! Didn't we clear this up during the election? Didn't we point out that Romney's supposed low tax rate was actually a capital gains tax, since Mitt doesn't actually have a job -- he just lives off his investments. So he's paying taxes on money earned that was taxed previously. That's double taxation on his money, dumbass! And didn't we point out that the Romney's donate something like half their income to charity? And even if this foolishness was true, 14 percent of $22 million is over $3 million in taxes! How much did Mr. Younglove pay last year? I doubt he'll pay that much in his lifetime, if he even exists, and Mitt pays that EVERY F*CKING YEAR!!

I mean, this is a dead issue. These facts have been out there for over a year, and this moron hasn't heard any of them? Like I said, I find it hard to believe an actual person wrote this stupidity.

And I'm not even going to get into the letter by Orfeo Trombetta. Seriously?! Try something believable like Joe Smith, guys.

Public service announcement

Courtesy of uber-skank Lena Dunham --

"If you’re not into me, that’s your problem and you’re going to have to work that out with professionals."

Yep, that's right folks, if you don't want to see this parading around naked on your television for no apparent reason:

lena dunham rolling stone coverlena dunham bikini

Then according to Ms. Dunham, you've got a problem. I'm not going to go into a lengthy deconstruction of this absurdity, too many others already have. I'll link to Stacy McCain's site for one takedown and leave it at that.

Now where's my eye bleach . . .?

Okay, I take it back, I'm going to give you one more little bit on this mess. I've been staying away from a few of my old favorite celeb blogs because the guys who run them have decided to get all political, and I find it tiresome. But this one dude gave Dunham & Apatow a classic slap-down that deserves some sharing:

"Oh boy. Breathe it out, Todd. Breathe it out. *pets cat, thinks about the ocean* Whew, ok. First, f*ck this bitch. Let's just get that out of the way now. F*ck her and f*ck her show. It's Sex and The City with even uglier chicks that tries way too damn hard to transcend exactly what it is: a show written by a 27-year old, white bred elitist born to rich, pseudo artist parents who happened to be friends with Judd Apatow who instilled in her a ridiculous and completely underserving since of self-esteem by telling her how great she was every day of her life to the point where she truly believes she's some sort of trailblazing feminist and hipster sex symbol. Tell you what, replace Lena Duhnam with Candice Swanepoel in the exact same show and let me know just how "feminist" this show really is. Oh, Candice Swanepoel gets naked a lot? Then that's just the patriarchy trying force their unrealistic archetype of beauty penis into our unshaven vaginas. Do us all a favor, take several seats. And thanks for playing."

Priceless :-)

Well, in the spirit of bi-partisanship...

The Tampa Bay (formerly St. Pete) Times is currently in a full-court press on gun control with daily editorials and letters to the editor from unrealistically literate middle school students decrying the placing of security guards on campuses. The other day we even had the expected op-ed from Gabby Giffords detailing her agonizing recovery from gunshots inflicted by Obama supporter Jared Loughner, complete with an image of Giffords at a gun range and her calls for sensible gun control.

Tuesday of this week, former sports writer turned opinion columnist John Romano weighed in on the Time's favorite hobby horse -- the Stand your Ground law. Romano admits that according to public opinion the law shouldn't be repealed:
...there is no way that law is going to be repealed anytime soon, nor should it be based on polls.

Romano advocates "tweaking" the law. In this case, removing protections for those who start confrontations. Although that is a murky situation, as we saw with the Zimmerman/Martin incident. Facts show Martin was the aggressor, but liberal outlets like the Times perpetrated the lie that Zimmerman provoked his assailant. Putting something like this before a jury that could be swayed by relentless and false media hype might jeopardize a person's right to a fair trail. And I thought liberals were all about fairness.

But I like Romano's setup for this -- a law has no chance of being repealed so let's just tweak it to make it better. I have a few ideas --

Roe v. Wade has little chance of being repealed. And unlike the Stand your Ground law, Roe has caused the murder of over 50 million innocent children since its passage. I'm in favor of tweaking this law to add protections to the innocent. How about you John?

ObamaCare has little chance of being outright repealed as well. And I, along with millions of others, would like to see some tweaking of this law too. How about actually letting people keep the plans they like, as the President repeatedly promised for starters? Your thoughts, John?

Of course, in reality, Romano has little interest in tweaking laws that are mainstays of the liberal/socialist/democratic platform for transforming this country into a third world debt nation. And like most liberals, he's a flaming hypocrite when taking a stand on anything, he finishes up his article with this bit of advice:

So will the law [Stand your Ground] ever be perfect? Of course not. But that doesn't mean we should abandon all attempts to fix it.

Well said, John. Now only if you, and all liberals, would apply that reasoning to laws people of other political opinions had qualms about, we'd be a much less divisive nation. Don't you think?

Here's something we don't see enough of

British cutie Emma Watson in a bikini:

emma watson bikini

Young Emma does a nice job staying out of the tabloids and avoiding those messy candid photos and/or scandalous behaviours that plague so many other young stars today.

Though in truth, I wouldn't mind the occasional saucy image from time to time, if you know what I mean and I think that you do

And just noting -- that's some fairly impressive white girl booty Em's sporting there :-)

Daily Duffster

Seems my Duffster might be getting a divorce:

hilary duff bikini

All kidding aside, this is a bummer. I'm rarely a fan of marriages breaking up, especially when there are children involved. Hopefully Hilary and her husband can have an un-acrimonious split, allowing everyone involved to move on with their lives with as little trauma as possible.

So Miley slipped a nip in her new photo shoot

You can't tell me you're actually surprised by this. After her work with 'ole pervy, something like this was just a matter of when not if:

miley cyrus nipple slip
miley cyrus nipple slip

Besides forgetting her Chinet-sized pasties, I wish Miley would forget about those god-awful high-waisted cut-offs! It took thirty years to get women away from the horrid look of high-waisted jeans and this chick is single handedly bringing that nonsense back.


Update 2:
And speaking of slipping something in a photoshoot, the pic below has resurfaced in higher resolution this time. Last time I thought it might be a fake, now . . . who knows, just might be the real thing.
*click on the image for the uncensored version*

miley cyrus topless

And in other celeb news -- it seems Ke$ha is in rehab for thirty days. She says it is because her manager called her "fat" and now she has an eating disorder.

Hmmm . . .

kesha sloppy fat
kesha sloppy fat

"Fat" might be a bit harsh. Perhaps "unbelievably sloppily out of shape" would be more accurate. But as long as she's happy with the way she looks and can keep cranking out annoying music that makes her rich, who am I to say anything?

Okay, I stand corrected. Below is a pic of Ke$ha at the American Music Awards in November of last year. If this is the look that prompted her manager to say she looked like a "f*cking refrigerator" then, as much as it pains me, I'll have to be team Ke$ha on this one:

kesha american music awards

Of course, this guy also manages Miley and Rihanna, so his idea of a woman is a spindly little thing that weighs 85 pounds sopping wet, so . . .

Happy New Year!

Hope you made it through your festivities last night in one piece. It was fairly quiet in my neck of the woods, minimal fireworks, though they lasted well into the wee hours. Didn't see any horror stories in the paper this morning, so I guess it all went well.

Resolutions? I could fill a hard drive with what I need to work on in my life. I'll make sure I don't give myself another mystery concussion this month for starters, other than that . . . I'm going to just try to keep it going for another year.

Best wishes to my few regular visitors and anyone else who drops by today.
