Drag them off the stage with candy canes


In trangressing my celebration of passover (waiting for the holiday thang to just pass over), I clicked on the message of the president and first lady. Where he invokes Jesus and grabs his wife’s knee, just as he is invoking Bo.

I’ve never seen them phonier. The “brave men and women who are protecting us.” Who he sends to slaughter, PTSD or eventual suicide.

Michelle, who likely peaked in her UK performance where she hugged little girls, and talked about being proud of being smart, gave this perfunctory message:

“But even these strong military families can use a hand, especially during the holidays,” she said, her first time sharing the president’s weekly address. ”

Give them a hand while we are giving them the finger!

Tough times? Not for Wall Street. To the 50% who are not unemployed in Detroit, be glad your taxes helped save our “financial system”.

Because if we didn’t reward people who gamble, how could we go onandon about our great country?

While the poinsettia genocide continues–mine is still alive!–there is less than 12 hours until you can get discounts on wrapping paper.

    I’m getting hooked on reading Iran tweets.

    Ah, it appears he was having stomach problems…..

    a comment from Puffpo, in a discussion about Jasper Shuringa wanting money for more interviews:

    “Seems fair. He’s endangering his life, appearing on tv. There could be a fajita put out on him by other terrorists.”

      The dumb clucks who want to interview him are getting paid for doing nothing at all. Why shouldn’t he get a little bite?

      There are halal fajitas.

    Lieberman is already asking for a pre-emptive strike against Yemen.

      More troubles today, same flight. Why doesn’t Joemortem want to take out Schiphol airport? Is he going soft?

        It’s another Nigerian man. I hope it wasn’t just some poor guy with diarrhea.

    I seem to want to be “inappropriate” today. But here is the account from the “hero” of the alleged terrorist plot thwarting:

    “Schuringa said he saw that Abdulmutallab had his pants open and he was holding a burning object between his legs.”

    Can we work in a “Tiger, tiger burning bright” joke here.

    Also, I don’t know how well my gaydar functions in an on-line setting, but it crossed my mind that said hero is gay. I would love that to come out, pun intended, in some interview. Omigod! a gay person acts heroically, saves lives!

    But can’t be out in the US military.

    I saw a clip of the Pope tackle. what is interesting was the crowd reaction. You don’t see anyone making the sign of the cross, but just about everyone whips out a camera.

    First he threatens to be an aesthetic Christian…now he’s trying to slip in underwater pooties.

    I’ve been reading this account of an incidence of police brutality (resulting in death) towards an Aboriginal (“Tall Man”, by Chloe Hooper)

    “Seven cops were usually stationed on Palm Island, but in the days following Cameron Doomadgee’s death there had been twenty-two. A gray-haired Aboriginal grandmother turned to one newly arrived constable and asked, “Why don’t you cunts fuck off?”

    In late-breaking news, Tiger Woods loses his “Athlete of the Decade” title to an Italian woman who tackles the Pope.

    • artemis54 Says:

      Hey I get a little buggy this time of year. At least I don’t go tackling people.

      Sounds like an interesting book if a little depressing. What nonfiction isn’t these days.

      • sisdevore Says:

        While I knew the treatment of Aboriginals was despicable, it seems the Australians treated the native peoples even worse than the Americans or Canadians. Persisting into the 21st century.

        Goddess help us all.

      • sisdevore Says:

        Apparently, up until 1970, they were still taking Aboriginal children from their homes and putting them in boarding schools.

    Merry Christmas from the Jane Hamster Orchestra!
