Wow! Those really pop. Farmer's market?

America's Politico said...

Just returned from a dinner at the WH. SO many people were excited. The news headlines --

Obama is a sure thing (WashPost)
Romney has no class (NYT)
Obama > Romney (DailyBeast, HuffPost)
GOP is bad, very, very bad (Andy Sully, TPM)
Etc. Etc.

We indeed most, very most, grateful to all the bloggers as well.

The election is in the bag. We have the Press. We have the Hollywood. We have the blogger.

Romney, who has you? Who is your daddy? No one, even your daddy will vote for Obama.

It is over, for the GOP. Over. Nothing. You. Can. Do.

America's Politico said...

POTUS Heart Vanity Fair cover story (in October issue).
Is there a magazine on Earth that can have a story like that for the GOP or Romney or Ryan?

The election is in the bag. Drip. Drip. More and more publicity.

So nice, let's post it twice!

America's Politico said...

NB: David Krone (COS for Reid) denies he challenged the POTUS as written in Bob Woodward.

No one should buy Bob's book. Bob is a pariah now in the 2nd term.

I wish mum were really the word.

Coketown said...

Why would anyone want to talk about anything else when they can talk about mums? I LOVE MUMS!!! I want to make a film called "The Innocence of Mu***ms."

Coketown said...

I wonder if brownshirts would take me away for making such a film. I could probably submerge peonies in urine and nobody would care, but make a film about mums and suddenly the first amendment is totally redacted. Probably some fanatics would burn down Kew Gardens.

Actually mums would probably work better in urine. "Piss Chrysanthemum."

God, this is getting too funny.

edutcher said...

Very pretty, Madame.

Hope you took some home.

PS The little animal beclowns himself.

Now he's using AP for his material.

EMD said...

Some higher-quality alternatives to the dumb Innocence of Muslims movie:

Four Lions

The Infidel

America's Politico said...

We are organizing all news outlet to come to WH for a pow-wow. We will have headlines that build on each-other. GOP, you are on sight. There-IS-Nothing-You-Can-Do. Just watch Nixon in the ALL-PRESIDENT-Men. That is how GOP will get. Every-one is focusing on your weaknesses.

Peter Hoh said...

New guy playing Obama on SNL.

shiloh said...

Cons, you are on the way to destruction. You have no chance to survive, make your time!

ha ha ha

edutcher said...

I think AP's taken him over.

lol, as someone said

Meade said...

You bet your sweet aster.

Sheridan said...

Has anyone ever seen America's Politico and Titus (AP&T) separately, in the same room at the same time?

Blessed with genuine nimbleness and wit, AP&T brings out the worst in Shiloh who has his own unique voice but seems at times to want to be included in the "clever boy" clique.

Shiloh, I enjoy reading your own, heartfelt comments. You don't need to rely on or suck-up to AP&T! Be original!

Synova said...

Now, now. Some of those mums are clearly asters.

Palladian said...

No, but if they did, it would be a perfect opportunity for Obama to call in one of his drone strikes.

shiloh said...

IIRC, this may be the first or second time I've replied to AP and it wasn't an actual reply. Titus, maybe 3 or 4 times!

Again, would not join any club that would have someone like me as a member. ie an equal opportunity annoyer. Just ask the folk at the liberal site I no longer post at.

Consider myself an independent contractor. Logically, any lib at a 90/10 con blog would "stand out!"

Tits

Palladian @9/15/12 11:08 PM -

Alas, Obama would likely reward AP&T with an opportunity to donate $3 and win a cat-nap in the Lincoln Bedroom.

But your comment does provoke a question. Does Obama call-in a drone strike or does he guide the device to the target himself? Is he a hands-off commander-in-chief like Clinton or is he more like Saruman, peering at and plotting agasinst the enemy through his palantir? Or even better, is he like the Sardaukar generals in the movie "Dune", manipulating his drones while twirling about in his little carousel of destruction?

If I knew that Obama did his own dirty work, I might have a higher regard for him.

Beta Rube said...

Went to a showing of 2016. It reminded me that Bush was slammed for giving a speech at Bob Jones University, but if you mention that Barry spent most of his adult life listening to "God Damn America" you are of course, a racist.

Barry probably will win, There is no event that is not quickly spun to his benefit, with a complicit cheer leading media only too eager to help him finish in the next four years the transformation of America to a second rate power.

Sheridan said...

Beta Rube - in a prior post, on another day, I likened the media's fascination with and protection of Obama as akin to the media's fascination with and protection of JFK nearly 50 years ago. The media will take any action to ensure that the "New Camelot" lives-on. If those actions require lying, dissembling, covering-up or even marginalizing the US Constitution then so be it.

But as the Republic survived its own civil war, so will it survive this present hubub. And while Romney is no Lincoln, he is certainly not Obama's Buchanan.

Beautiful picture, Ann.

I'm very excited that I'm going to see Einstein On The Beach tomorrow!

lol.

Oh, lucky!

Palladian said...

Oh, lucky!

Yeah, I know! I've loved the opera since I heard about it as a teenager, and I didn't get a chance to see it the last time it was revived in 1992. When I learned that it would be revived again at BAM this year, I diligently watched and waited until they finally released the on-sale dates, and I convinced my boyfriend to spring for the tickets. I'm a bit concerned, as he's not much of a connoisseur of music (especially of 5 hour long non-narrative operas) but I've given him fair warning of what to expect.

I'm not generally a fan of live performance, but "Einstein" is a special case; this is probably the last time it will be performed during the lifetimes of its creators (Philip Glass is 75 years old, Robert Wilson is 70 and Lucinda Childs is 72) so I'm definitely excited to see it.

Chip Ahoy said...

In 1976, audiences around the globe experienced a collective dream. Time slowed, sound tumbled everywhere and nowhere, and cryptic images froze in light.

Fantastic. An idiom in ASL, literally, 'grab eyes.'

No, he's losing. Why else all the polls so skewed to the Demos and the trolls killing themselves to spread the "Resistance is futile" meme? Why else are they begging for money (the new thing is garage sales)?

PS If the little animal is an independent contractor, somebody's getting robbed.

campy said...

Thank you President Obama for cleaning our planet so pretty flowers can grow.

Pogo said...

Sharia law is now in effect in he US.

Mocking Mohmamed is literally against the law.

In the US.

Shut up, Barry explained.

Pogo said...

This is what second term Barry will look like.

EOs, endless EOs bypassing Congress.

Can he EO permission for a third term?

Carnifex said...

Damn! Shiloh actually believes AP! Now we know why he's such a O'bot.(I'm being polite, Shiloh). He'll swallow anything someone feeds him.

@Pogo

We lost this country when the Dread Traitor Roberts ruled that the government has unlimited taxing powers. What a piece of shit he is.

campy said...

Actually EOs will not be necessary. The democrats are going to retake the house and increase their senate edge to 62-38 or better.

Wake up Ann.

Throw us hillbillies some red meat.

Wrapped in bacon to piss off the Muzzies.

Hagar said...

Bernanke promises "quantitative easing" until 2016.

I wonder if that statement will be "operative" come January even if Obama wins re-election?

My bank savings account made $0.18 interest last month.
Grocery prices seems to be up quite a bit.

NotquiteunBuckley said...

Mumsy is close enough to Mimsy to recall Mr. Jiminy Glick.

Scott said...

@Hagar: Welcome to the Nixon administration.

Or perhaps the Weimar republic.

Nobody in Washington wants to cut spending, so the government is financing its debts by making the dollar cheaper. In effect, inflation is a tax that can be imposed by Bernanke without a vote from Congress.

As an inflation hedge for my retirement money I'm buying blue chip stocks. I would buy physical gold if the margin wasn't so gigantic.

Freeman Hunt said...

Scott, were you the one who mentioned memory palaces a while back?

Reading about that today, just tried it for the first time -- Holy cow! That works!

(All the punctuation scolds can chomp on that last bit.)

Almost Ali said...

I was so late to the "party," I hope y'all won't mind me sticking this here (also). Because over there I'm #401 on the list!

So, here goes:

The YouTube video, presumably a "movie" denigrating The Prophet, stops way, way short of exposing the whole truth - specifically regarding Mohammad's 6-year-old wife, Aisha, whom he mercifully didn't rape until she was 9 (thank Allah!).

In the "movie" her name is mentioned, but she's never depicted. After hearing her name, I expected to see a 6-year-old playing the part, but the movie wouldn't touch her burqa with a 10-foot pole. Although they did portray Mohammad as the philandering (but infallible) whoremaster he was.

Added: I believe most of you already know this stuff, but a few may not. Because even after a lifetime of knowing, I still can't accept such a "marriage" - even made in Allah-heaven.
