President Stratton?

by jkay

The presidents recent "re-framing" of the famous "red line" regarding WMD is some unintentional comedy gold, and I'm pretty sure this is not a good thing.

Depending on the angle chosen to view it from, it can appear either admirably logical or uproariously tortured.

My knee jerk reaction was the former, then after it sunk in I started cracking up because it began to remind me of Eric "Otter" Stratton's speech from the "Kangaroo" court scene in Animal House, wherein Mr. Stratton is seen "gamely" trying to defend the "Deltas" regarding their myriad campus transgressions.

Stay the hell out of Syria

by jkay

How many times do we need to see this movie before we get it through our thick skulls that the ending always sucks.

These wars are just like those old D-Con roach motels.

We check in, but we never check out.

I think Mr. Snowden needs to zip it

by jkay

This guy is no hero.

So the fact that he's got some mediocre IT skills gives him the right to go to a foreign country and start yelling into a microphone about clandestine U.S. spying programs that he knows next to nothing about?

I'm calling B.S. on this guy right now.

The "Oh, Shit" factor

by jkay

I've always been fascinated by what type of "top secret" information is communicated to an incoming president in their first few days in office.

Beside confirmation that the aliens in Area 51 obviously crave strawberry ice cream, duh, everybody knows that, what other mind blowing information might come their way that  cause them to take a deep breath and say out loud "Oh, Shit", or maybe even "OH, FUCKING SHIT".

Now I'm really confused

by jkay

A few days ago, I was 100% sure that the Oklahoma tornado had to have been caused by the recent legalization of gay marriage in Minnesota.

I mean, really, what else could have caused destruction of that magnitude?

For God, of course, the distance between Minnesota and Oklahoma is most likely statistically insignificant, which easily accounts for him missing the real target by a few hundred miles.

"Scandalgate" fizzling? Really?

by jkay

Could have fooled me after reading the lead stories in NY Times, WAPO and HuffPO this morning.

You want to whistle past the graveyard and pretend this stuff isn't happening, go right ahead.

It is happening, and it's not going away anytime soon.

In partial defense of Lance Armstrong

OK, I can hear the groaning from here.

Just hang with me for a minute or two.

Just caught the great and powerful Tom Brokaw on that unstoppable, emerging colossus of political punditry called "The Cycle" on MSNBC.

I know you just can't wait to hear the bolus of brilliance that he dropped on us, so follow me below the orange tribble if you dare.

by jkay

He won it big, it was no contest.

But Romney did what he needed to do.

Chris Matthews spanks Jack Welch

by jkay

On Hardball yesterday, Chris Matthews pushed back forcefully against Jack Welch's
unsubstantiated and reckless "twitter" assertion concerning the just released 7.8% unemployment figure from the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

"Unbelievable jobs numbers these Chicago guys will do anything can't debate so change numbers,"

Today, in an exclusive interview, David Axelrod revealed that President Obama is preparing some "zingers" of his own in anticipation of his rematch with Mitt Romney.

"Yes, I can confirm the rumors that for the next debate, we will be employing a strictly "all zinger" strategy!

Axelrod indicated to me that people really don't give a crap about policy details, so they figured they might as well give this a try for the second debate.

"What do we have to lose? If we lose, we're all still rich, so fuck it, we're gonna let it all hang out this time!"
