It's about a dragon and the muse he works for, not politics, but couldn't
you use a distraction from the looming threat of Romney & Ryan?
Besides, the author is a liberal and wants Bart to keep on swinging that hammer!

"Hey Romney, this Major FAIL by you on Libya? You BUILT That."
       --  Symbolman in a Tweet

   ha ha
  Twitter is going crazy with Romney's Libya fuck up.

  If you think you're too old or too cool for Twitter, you're wrong.
  Twitter is how people communicate now.
  When Romney fucked up, they pounced in him like Pigboy on a baked ham.

Romney's Childish Libya Tantrum


Many members of the media reacted with puzzlement and criticism to Mitt Romney's
continuing criticism of the White House response to the deadly attacks in Libya and Egypt.

The Romney campaign drew fire on Wednesday morning for issuing a blistering statement
condemning the American embassy in Egypt for speaking against an incendiary anti-Muslim film,
even though the embassy made the statement before any attacks had taken place.
NBC's Chuck Todd, a Romney apologist, called the statement "irresponsible" and a "bad mistake."

Other reporters were baffled. "The Romney campaign's politicization of the embassy attacks
is even worse than I expected," Foreign Policy writer Blake Hounshell tweeted.

Speaking on Fox News, Peggy Noonan was also blunt. "I don't feel that Mr. Romney
has been doing himself any favors in the past few hours," she said.

"If you think the eye-rolling at Romney is just coming from the MSM, call up some
Republican foreign policy hands," BuzzFeed's Ben Smith added.

Romney is losing and he's desperate.
He knows he's going to lose to Obama unless something crazy happens.

Romney was hoping the ambassador's murder would be great news for him.
He was wrong.

Romney might be the best the Republican's have
but he's waaaay too stupid to be president.

Romney, leaving this morning's press conference with a giant smirk that says,
"I totally nailed that by acting so presidential..."

Remember when Willard was ready to 
bet $10,000 with Rick Perry on some issue?

Hey Willard, BET ME $10,000
that you'll be our next president.
(If he accepts we'll have to pool our money
because I don't have a spare $10K to bet)

Do you feel lucky?

Well, do you, Punk?

Arizona’s Birtherpalooza Canceled
Not enough crazy handjobs buying tickets


Not even the promise of Nazi gasbag Pat Boone singing oldies could save what
was intended to be the premier Handjob-birther event of the year later this month in Arizona.

Organizers of the gala, which would have featured Boone and Pink Panty Sheriff Joe Arpaio,
broke the news online Friday that it was canceled “due to inadequate ticket sales.”

Organizers had planned to use Bitherfest to call on Congress to take up Arpaio’s yearlong
investigation into the President's birth certificate.

There's a shortage of insane douchebags in Arizona?

Coulda fooled me.

BTW, every time I see aging Nazi gasbag Pat Boone mentioned, I have to run
the link to the photo of Pat Boone gleefully sodomizing a shoebox.

It was Boone's proudest moment.

I wonder, when Pat "Talks" to God, does God ever say, "Keep it in your pants, Asshole?"

Romney Blasted by Republicans
He thought Libya murders was great news


"Foreign Policy Hands Voice Disbelief At Romney Cairo Statement":
“Bungle… utter disaster…not ready for prime time… not presidential.”
And that's just the Republicans.

"They were just trying to score a cheap news cycle hit based on the embassy statement
and now it’s just completely blown up," said a very senior Republican, who called the
statement an "utter disaster" and a "Lehman moment" — a parallel to the moment when
John McCain, amid the 2008 financial crisis, panicked and suspended his campaign.

"I guess we see now that it is because they’re incompetent at talking effectively about
foreign policy," said the Republican. "This is just unbelievable — when they decide to
play on it they completely bungle it."

"Its bad," said a former aide to Senator John McCain's 2008 presidential campaign.
"Just on a factual level that the statement was not a response but preceding, or one
could make the case precipitating. And just calling it a 'disgrace' doesnt really cut it.
Not ready for prime time."
A third former Republican, a former Bush State Department official, told BuzzFeed,
"It wasn't presidential of Romney to go political immediately -- a tragedy of this magnitude
should be something the nation collectively grieves before politics enters the conversation."

Is today the day the Romney Campaign broke its back?

Will we look back at Sept 12 as the day Obama won his second term?

Or will Romney have more epic fails than this one?

Romney said he didn't put his millions offshore to avoid taxes.
So why do it?
Why not invest in America, Mitt?


"I've been inundated with emails and calls from elected GOP leaders
  who think Romney's response was a mistake."
     --  Joe Scarborough (R-Dead Intern) in a Tweet

 Dude, Romney's entire campaign is a mistake.

 BTW, the Navy Seal who pulled the trigger on bin Laden said on 60 Minutes that
 they called each other "Dude" inside bin Laden's compound - seemed funny to me.

 Subject: Randi Rhodes

Randi is still on the air – at least online anyway.  I still listen to her from time to time. 

 She STILL brings up the disgraceful Hillary “fucking whore” incident as proof that she’s
 not blindly partisan and that Dems don’t support her.  She adamantly maintains it was a
 “standup comedy act”.  I once heard Stephanie Miller mention it, too, making the same case. 
 Well, I guess friends stick up for each other. 

 I’ll never forget it.  I was pissed.   And then there was the whole thing about having
 dirt on Hillary but keeping it to herself because she “values her life”.  Damn. 

 It was good for me, though.  It reminded me that she’s just a talk show pundit
  – and not to trust any of them 100%.  They can turn whore.

Thanks Bart.
 Keep Swinging

 I liked Randi a lot before she went crazy.

 Funny, in all those years she never cursed like that at Bush or Cheney.
 She saved that 100% pure hatred for Hillary - such a waste.

Romney Hooks Himself Off the Stage
by The Rude Pundit


Today, this post was going to be about how Romney is trying to run on the innate goodness of himself,
that, perhaps one last time, he could win because he's a competent white man, and shouldn't that be who leads us?
Yes, this was going to be about the emptiness of the Romney campaign, the failure to offer even one goddamn
example of a tax loophole that might be closed, the way that Romney and Ryan have to tell outright lies to even
get anyone to pay attention to them, and more.

But then U.S. embassies in Egypt and Libya were attacked, with the ambassador to Libya and staff members
murdered (yes, murdered, and their killers should be treated as murderers, not elevated to warriors, as some
on the right wish to do), and Romney demonstrated vividly and for all to see why he not only shouldn't be
president, but why he has no business in politics. First, his campaign issued a statement that, as many have
reported, read as if the unvetted, ass-saving statement by a frightened U.S. embassy in Egypt, just before it
was attacked, was the gospel of the Obama administration, fucking up not only the source of the statement,
but also the fact that no one had been killed when the Cairo statement was issued. Said the Romney campaign,
"It's disgraceful that the Obama Administration's first response was not to condemn attacks on our
missions, but to sympathize with those who waged the attacks."

In other words, another fucking lie.

Pat Robertson or Mitt Romney?
Who said the stupidest thing lately?


On Monday's Pat Robertson TV show, he answered a question from a viewer named Michael
about how to repair his marriage to a woman who "has no respect for me as the head of the house."

Robertson's response: "Well, you could become a Muslim and you could beat her."

Bizarrely, this comment elicited laughter from Robertson's co-host, Terry Meeuwsen.

Unfortunately, Robertson didn't stop there.

"I don’t think we condone wife-beating these days but something has got to be done to make her."

He also called the woman a "rebellious child" who doesn't want to "submit to any authority."
However, since the Scripture doesn't allow for divorce, Robertson urged the husband to
"move to Saudi Arabia," where, ostensibly, beating the woman would be permissible.

I have an idea: When Romney is addressing this cabal of geniuses
and global leaders, ask him to explain his position o climate change.

Romney represents the Lollipop Guild so he cannot give
an answer to that without the entire room laughing at him.


Subject: 9-11 anniversary


11 years ago as I was driving to work in eastern Kansas I looked up and wondered why
all the contrails were painting U-Turns in the sky. I made it to my job only to discover
the insanity unfolding. All the major news outlets on the fledgling Internet were totally
crushed by the food of traffic. One of my coworkers rushed over and said,
"I know where to find minute by minute updates on this thing."

After the day was done, I just kept reading. I haven't agreed with you all the time,
and I tuned you out for a couple years, but I always make my way back.
Even when we disagree I have to respect your passion and patriotism.
Keep swingin'

Ps. Seriously how much do you shill out to keep this thing up?

 I don't understand the question.

 "Shill out" has such a negative connotation.

Romney got bin Laden?
by Charles Pierce, Esquire Magazine


According to Public Policy Polling, 15 percent of registered Republicans in Ohio think Willard Romney
deserves more credit for killing Osama bin Laden than does the president. Another 47 percent aren't really
sure who does. In North Carolina, 29 percent of them give the credit to Romney while a whopping 56 %
find it too difficult to answer the question of whether the credit should go to the guy who actually gave
the order, or to the guy who forgot to mention the troops in his acceptance speech not long ago.
It's more than ignorance. It's more than being misinformed. (I don't know of a single commentator,
not even the wingiest of wingnut public-access trolls at FOX, who's credited Romney with being involved
in the raid into Pakistan.) This is simple reflexive tribalism - Democrat bad, Republican, good.

That, Bart, is a 1942 Ford Super deluxe 4 door sedan. 
Probably assigned to a colonel or Navy commander because
all of Ford's 1942 production was for military use and the
generals and admirals got Buicks or Cadillacs.

Today's History Mystery


Subject: last issue's History Mystery    Link 

Hi Bart,
That is Steve McQueen and Faye Dunaway, most likely in 1968 during the filming of
the original version of The Thomas Crowne Affair. There is a scene where McQueen is
seen racing a dune buggy on Crane's Beach in Ipswich, Mass. (McQueen did his own
stunt driving in this one too). I'm guessing this photo was taken sometime during that shoot.
Jake in L.A.

I have a semi-funny story about The Thomas Crowne Affair.
I was 1968 and it was my first ever date.

I doubled with my cousin - we dated two hot twin sisters named Oswald,
which was creepy because this was just four years after Dallas but the girls
were super-hot so I didn't care if my date's name was Uday Hussein.

We wanted to go see The Thomas Crowne Affair, but the grown-ups thought it
would be too racy because it had the word "Affair" in the title.  My cousin's Mom
was a Sinatra fan so she drove us to see The Detective, starring Ol' Blue Eyes.

In The Detective, Frank played a NY homicide detective working a gay slaying.
I remember Frank saying, "There was semen on the walls and semen on the ceiling."

Great first date for some teenagers, right?

Parents, sometimes your kids are smarter than you.
