Cute. Needs to be about 1/4 the length.

But who cares? Fraud's going to decide the election, not votes.

The Drill SGT said...

great fun.... Boxer is such an A$$

EDH said...

Is that Clint Howard playing the other senator?

If so, that marks a political difference with his brother, no?

Fen said...

Yup, our Elite Dems are infected with the "let them eat cake" mentality of an Aristocrat.

"By Hook or Crook or the 2nd Ammendment"

Titus said...

Perfect.

Were you and Meadsy Poo chizzing all over that Johnson dude a couple of weeks ago?

Wow, Feingold owned him last night.

I am sharing my voting with you now:

I am voting for Walker because I would do him.

And I am voting for Feingold because I like him.

Thank you and good day.

And I am all about Palfrey Glen at this moment, as well as the Vilas Area-my fav area of Madison.

Dead Julius said...

Oh, that's a winner!

It'll resonate well with Californians... they love irony and a little mischief.

Makes it seem entirely reasonable to vote anti-Boxer and pro-Prop 19.

Synova said...

LOL. Okay, that was better than I expected.

The Drill SGT said...

Kaus just peaked too early...

You gotta know you're in trouble as a Female California Democrat incumbent when a Jewish Hollywood life long liberal starts spending money on a good ad that laughs at your stupidity...

Fen said...

Oh, I emailed my "NPR CEO disclosed private medical history of Juan" to FOX News.

First time I've contacted them. I wonder if it will make it on one of the shows. Doubt it.

Kinda touchy tough because to be actionable Juan must 1) admit he's been to a pyschiatrist, and 2) confirm he told his boss about it (ie. "cant come into 1:00mtg today, have appt with pysch")

This had me in stitches because it just doesn't stop. They keep hammering and hammering and hammering away until finally a Boy Scout insists on his Eagle recognition.

That's 21 merit badges, you know. I had like two. One for fishing. I had to clean the fish. Another for cooking. I had to make the fire. The bastards didn't have a merit badge for hieroglyphics or for pop-up cards.

But it makes you realize they could have kept going, driving it right into the ground. "I'm not just a good kindergarden reader, I'm a Bluebird reader! I worked hard for that title."

Titus said...

That Vilas Park Mother Shoe Slide was there when I was little.

I love it.

If only Boxer had gone to Barney's Market Club in Chicago. Yes Sir (or Ma'am) Senator!

http://postcardy.blogspot.com/2010/05/ss-barneys-market-club-chicago.html

Barney's would have closed around the time Boxer took office.

Fraud's going to decide the election

I'd be interested in your theories. Diverted absentee ballots voted in bulk?

Titus said...

Personally, I love the really rich San Francisco "democratic" women.

Pelosi, Boxer, Feinstein.

Nice parts jewish, rich, San Francisco, rich, bitchy, love the fags-what a combo.

Real women in Real America-makes me want to blow a load.

They hit ground at about the minute-and-eleven-second mark.

traditionalguy said...

The politics of ridicule has turned and bit the Liberal Myth Makers. There real acts are suddenly open to comical comments as if no longer sacred and protected tenants. They said Sarah Palin was a red neck nut, and she is suddenly headed to the top while they watch the tsunami coming to destroy their Open Bar DC play money games.

Titus said...

Last year at this time I was doing Halloween festivities with my rich, Indian UK husband.

Lizzie Borden's house, Salem, Green Mountain Fall Foliage "Peeking".

My husband is rich. He has a maid, a women who comes in and cooks all his meals everyday and shops for his groceries, a driver and a gardener. I love that. A plus regarding his richness is he is only 35 which makes it even sweeter and hot too. Not some old, ugly richie that I have to plug my nose with while doing it.

When we are on the phone the cook comes in, with her little Puni baby, and asks what he would like for his menu for the day. So elite, the way the world should be.

I asked if when being there if I could act like Karen Walker to the help.

Saying things like I am entering the room which means all the underlings scatter so I don't have to be seen or breath the same air as them. Unfortunately, he said no I couldn't do that. Always ruining my fun.

Lastly, when we pinch loafs will tell each other we are going to take a "dumper"-just a little insight to our relationship.

Titus said...

Althouse has seen many pics of my Indian UK husband including shirtless showing his incredibly large sculpted tits and arms and tiny waist.

Hog is well appropriated against the backdrop of his bod as well.

She can attest to his hotness.

I have to admit his hotness and richness does comfort me and make me feel better about myself. I guess that shows my real insecurities-group hug now for my insecurities.

But what is most important and I why I love him so is because of his beautiful art-please don't mistaken me for a gold digger.

Titus said...

I meant beautiful "heart" not art.

Indian gays who live in India are really queenie and wear makeup-but not my hubby.

His best friend's name, who is not queenie, is Praveen which means something inspirational in Hindi.

Did you know there are something like over 10 languages spoken by Indians in India. Just some fyi for your portfolios.

Voters can track their Colorado mail-in ballots online. As USPS confirmation of delivery, I suppose, for whatever that is worth. One of my cards was confirmed delivered but the recipient says they never got it.

former law student said...

Fen,

Barbara Boxer is not on the ballot either in Colorado or in Arizona.

former law student said...

titus -- regarding "queenies"

A young woman I worked with from the Philippines said the gays over there were all sissies while the lesbians were all butches. Does that sound right to you?

Titus said...

yes law student. Philly fags are notoriously queenly, same as Thailand fags. Even in Mexico there are rural parts of the country where fags are "shims" and are thought of exceptional and highly desired-weird. I will take a man with a pumped out body and no sign of gayness thank you.

In India there is a big fag hag community as well, but unlike the US hags who are not always fab, the hags in India are hot. But the expectation is that the fags will go shopping an buy the hags shit.

Fen said...

Democrat: Barbara Boxer is not on the ballot either in Colorado or in Arizona.

Its who you are. Its what you do.

Steal Elections.

Fen said...

Thieves. And you worked hard to get that title.

Sheepman said...

Funny and not heavy handed, which is unusual for a "GOP" ad.

edutcher said...

OK, they beat it to death, but that's the Zucker brothers style. And, yes, that's the way it really needs to be done to make the point Boxer shorts needs to go home.

campy said...

But who cares? Fraud's going to decide the election, not votes.

Only if it's close enough, but at least now we recognize the truth that the margin of victory isn't as important as the margin of fraud. Get those last few Americans in CA out on Election Day.

EDH said...

Yes, it is. He has been quite active on the right side this election cycle.

PS The Murray and McClung pieces Fen linked show how SEIU is trying to fill ACORN's shoes. We'll need a new O'Keefe and Giles after the election.

PPS Can't believe they got Ed Ames to play an Indian again.

MadisonMan said...

Nicely done.

Synova said...

The pounding in of "worked so hard" at the end is the equivalent of "doesn't she look... tired?"

Fred4Pres said...

Funny. A bit long but funny.

write_effort said...

Boxer didn't come off badly in that exchange with the BG: her voice is steady and low key, and she's polite. Given the pomposity we've witnessed in other hearings! I think a lot of people share Boxer's feeling from time to time: I worked for this, I'd like to be acknowledged. Can't see that it appeals to anyone who isn't inclined to hate Boxer anyhow.

ndspinelli said...

EDH, That is indeed, Opie's brother.

Zucker is one of my favorite UW grads.

That's MISTER David Zucker. He worked so hard...

Tea Party ≠ Republican

The latter are riding a wave at the moment, but if they screw up again, they're going to be just as much a target at Democrats.

Boxer didn't come off badly

**SENATOR** Boxer, you insensitive son of a bitch.

Synova said...

"Boxer didn't come off badly in that exchange with the BG: her voice is steady and low key, and she's polite."

I don't think it would have been bad for her at all except that it really does imply that the General was lacking in his expression of respect for her, and he really wasn't.

So he took his little spanking like the grown up he is and smoothly switched to carefully calling her "Senator" each time...

Which for someone in the military is likely much easier to do without subsequent flub-ups (like they have in the video... in real life the Generals didn't goof up and say "Ma'am" again.) The reason that switching from one to the other isn't all that hard is that being extra formal is how military people speak to those superiors that they hate. Granted, in the case of Boxer it was probably "Civilian, whatever, adapt and continue," more than actual irritation.

Going from saying Sir or Ma'am to using a superiors *rank* is one of those "it's a thing" sort of things that is so technically correct and so technically observant of rank that you *can't* get in trouble for it.

It's also why, when Obama shows up at a military thing and the, oh, West Point cadets are excessively and perfectly proper that a person sort of cringes over it.

Synova said...

This video isn't about that, I think. It's just about Boxer not understanding what the problem was and trying to imply that as well as being out of touch she's *tired*.

She worked so hard...

Fen said...

No. For me, its her assumption that she has "earned" the position. She's forgotten that she's supposed to be a servant of the people.

Synova, I know you went to the USAFA, so it's not likely you were ever a sergeant, and frnkly the Air Force really doesn't have sergeants, just highly paid technicians, but hehe, enough of the insults :)

Anyway, when a SGT doesn't have much respect for an officer, they shift into rank mode, yes Captain, no Captain, rather than Yes Sir!

It's a subtle change, but trust me, both sides know, at least those that aren't 2LT's :)

So yes Senator comes across to those of us that were Sergeants as a lower respect reference than Yes Ma'am!

John said...

i love conservative humor. it's so...edgy? Whoops, no, I meant boring. Not a Boxer fan, but why not reference the actual issues rather in the close of a campaign than just getting on Boxer for being unpleasant at one of the zillions of congressional hearings that go on every year. It's the same ridiculousness as relying on O'Donnell misstatements on stupid, unrelated things to undermine her political philosophy.

But I guess what's abhorrent behavior towards O'Donnell is just perfect for Boxer.

Synova said...

"Synova, I know you went to the USAFA, so it's not likely you were ever a sergeant, and frnkly the Air Force really doesn't have sergeants, just highly paid technicians, but hehe, enough of the insults :)"

Oh no!

I was enlisted. I was in ROTC in college for a couple of years, but dropped out of college. And later after my husband got stationed in the Philippines (also enlisted) I signed up because being a DW sucks in ways that few things in life suck as.

Grand total of E-4.

And yes, technicians. LOL. And sort of stuck with an organizational quirk in relation of enlisted to officers about who is actually the boss... but I am *assured* that the super-formality-insult goes cross-services.

Chase said...

John,

You need some advice:

1) Don't do sarcasm - you're not good at it yet (everyone imagines they're a Jon Stewart), and while no one misses your point, they just think less of you when you make it so poorly.

2) Read a little more. Do you actually think the level of joking in this video is anything like the visceral hatred that most of Hollywood and the Main Stream media daily and completely self-righteously display towards a Palin or an O'Donnell? Really? have you been reading this blog?

Do better man, or people will just skip over you, man.

Fen said...

Hey John, do you think Boxer has a "right" to be called Senator?

AllenS said...

I remember when a certain (you know who) schooled us about what we were to refer to her as: Professor or Her Last Name, but she didn't want to be called by Her First Name.

She worked hard for that kind of respect.
