The Vulgar Pigboy vs Bill O'Reilly
The GOP civil war heats up


The person who did more than anyone else to make birth control an issue in 2012, of course,
was Rush Limbaugh, who called Georgetown law student Sandra Fluke a “slut” and a “prostitute”
after she testified in support of requiring insurance companies to cover contraception. O’Reilly
would never have done that, not because he refrains from savaging obscure individuals with
whom he disagrees, but because he never goes after a sympathetic target. Limbaugh and O’Reilly
both see themselves as four-star generals in America’s culture war. The difference is that Limbaugh
launches kamikaze missions. O’Reilly never yells charge unless he has the infantry massed on his side.

You can see the difference in the way the two men respond to people perceived as right-wing extremists.
Limbaugh embraces them; O’Reilly disses them. After 2008 O’Reilly peddled nasty reports from former
McCain staffers about Sarah Palin. This enraged Limbaugh, who asked, “Why’s Fox allowing itself to be
used like this?” and defended Palin as “the one person in this campaign that brought the Republican base
back into the fold, that fired them up, that inspired them.” Similarly, this February, O’Reilly criticized
Michele Bachmann for claiming that President Obama has been living extravagantly in the White House.
Calling Bachmann’s charges “trivial,”

What's more fun than a GOP civil war?

 Subject: The Following

So right about The Following.  However, I’m still watching (okay I must be sick). 
I get mad at about the half-way point every week.  The part mentioned about standing
in front of the door was so stupid my husband and I yelled it out at the same time,
what FBI agent in the world would do that???  Quit writing this so damn dumb!!  Really???

Then I remembered this is written by the folks that wrote Lost
so we are getting what we deserve, are we not??    ha ha

Anyway, I know I will keep watching it but by god they better get this a little better or I’m done. 
It is too stupid and this leader is getting away with way too much.

Palin vs Rove: Who do we Root for?


Sarah the Quitter has assumed a new role as the Luca Brasi of the Teabagger movement. 
As with the Corleone family hit man, she has directed maximum fire power at Karl Rove.
Sarah says Washington, D.C. consultants should not "vet" Republican primary candidates.
Rove has helped form a new “SuperPAC” designed to intervene in Republican primaries to
head off nomination of extreme or loose lipped GOP candidates (e.g. Rep. Todd Akin in
Missouri, Richard Mourdoch in Indiana) who are likely losers in the general election.

“The last thing we need is Washington, D.C. vetting our candidates,”Palin declared to cheers
at the Nazifest called CPAC.  “The architects can head back to . . .,” at which point Palin
received a roaring ovation, “to the great Lone Star State and put their names on some ballot.”

 Subject: Chained CPI

On some level, I can accept Chained CPI – it is not a ‘cut’ in SS or Disability,
but a slow-down of how fast it is raised compared to normal annual inflation. 
Currently the point of raising SS and Disability faster than inflation is to account
for the faster rise of healthcare costs.  But overall the rise in healthcare costs has
slowed to the lowest rate in years…

And since Obamacare has not been blocked, it will be fully implemented next year,
at which point the high costs from un-insured people in the ER should go down,
stabilizing or perhaps even reversing the rising costs of healthcare.

Compromise requires give and take, and IF Obamacare stops healthcare costs from
going up at twice the rate of inflation AND a grand bargain reduces the deficit further
by getting loop holes closed and raising revenue in exchange for allowing chained CPI
to be enacted, then I think it will be worth it.  But it must be part of a grand bargain,
and we both know no Republican will ever agree to a grand bargain, so worry over
the possible use of Chained CPI is pointless anyway.

Besides, if California is a forecaster of the future, the Republican party will soon fade away:

Hillary Drives Crazies Crazy
Scandal trolls are hard at work
 by Joe Conason


Sounding today like a manic concern troll, David Frum writes worriedly that Hillary's
candidacy would “reopen embarrassing ethical disputes” from her years as First Lady.
“One particular quarrel that a Hillary Clinton nomination would bring forward is the
quarrel over the ethical standards of the Clinton White House — and, maybe even more,
of the Clintons’ post-White House careers.”  Evidently Frum thinks that Bill Clinton
shouldn’t have earned millions delivering speeches while his wife served as Secretary
of State – neglecting to mention that the Obama White House carefully vetted every
dollar he had earned before sending her nomination to the Senate.
Such insinuations — devoid of any factual basis or reporting effort – reflect the customary
intellectual standards of the old Clinton crazies. The obvious purpose is to evoke a shadow
of scandal, without fulfilling the burden of a serious accusation.

 Subject: Edie Windsor and Thea Spyer

Hey, I wanted to point out a major error in Vol. 3037, with the great graphic
about the discrimination suffered by Edie Windsor when her wife died. 

It wasn't $180K; she had to pay $363,000 in federal estate taxes on her inheritance
of her wife's estate.  Had the Feds recognized their legal marriage in NY state,
she'd had to pay nothing.

Yeah, that sounds exactly like discrimination to me.

Keep up the great work,

RNC vs. the filthy gay cabal
  by Jack Lessenberry


Were you aware that Michigan’s man on the RNC believes gay people live a “filthy lifestyle”
so depraved that many have hundreds of partners, and almost four-fifths of them have sexually transmitted diseases?
Even worse, they have a secret “homosexual agenda,” which is “to get the public to affirm their filthy lifestyle.”
Filthy it is too. Half of them are full of intestinal parasites, they die at a median age of 42,
and they commit half the murders in our large cities. Don’t worry that they are about to
become extinct, however: “Because homosexuals can’t reproduce naturally, they resort to
recruiting children. Homosexuals can be heard chanting ’10 percent is not enough, recruit,
recruit, recruit,’ in their homosexual parades.”
I’ve just taken you on a brief tour of the mind of one Dave Agema,
who for years was the worst member of the Michigan Legislature.

It's so fun to watch the Republicans destroy themselves.
Every time they scream, "fuck those faggots" they lose another election.

This will continue.
This is why we're going to win again in 2016 and probably 2020.

Republicans are incapable of learning.

When will Fallon relieve Leno?
Fallon signs contract - deal is done


NBC has now signed its next host of The Tonight Show, Jimmy Fallon.
News outlets reported Tuesday night that Fallon closed a deal with NBC
to carve out a future for him as Jay Leno's successor.
Though we don't know exactly what Fallon's "contract extension" entails,
we know that The Tonight Show is understood to be a part of it—and that
Fallon won't be up for grabs in 2015 when his current contract ends. On Friday
Fallon fired his longtime manager "while the talk show host's team was in preliminary
conversations with NBC about a new contract for him."
When will Fallon finally relieve the world of Jay Leno? The prevailing theories
have him taking over the 11:35 time slot either in February, coinciding with NBC's
all-out coverage of the Winter Olympics in Sochi—or else in September 2014,
when Leno's contract is up.

They say they're firing Leno NOT for being the least funny comic in history,
but because Jimmy Kimmel is stealing the younger audience, so why wait to fire him?

One thing's for sure: If there's a way to fuck things up, NBC will find it.

Subject: Michelle Shocked

Regarding Robert Mac's remarks, I was able to find the audio of the entire rant. 
I listened to it.  She didn't sound like she was being ironic or sarcastic at all. 
She sounded like she was attacking gay people.  Does Mac think an big chunk
of her audience walked out on her because they all misinterpreted what she said? 

Here's the URL of a site with the audio: 

Robert Mac reminds us to question what we hear.
That's a good thing.

Plug Pulled

In the annals of the Most Disastrous Shows Ever, there is a new entry.
Folk-rock singer Michelle Shocked had the plug pulled on her concert Sunday night
after launching into an anti-gay-marriage speech that led most of the audience to walk out.

Did we mention that her fans largely lean well to the left, thanks to the liberal politics that
previously infused much of her music, and that the gig where she chose to come out (so to speak)
as an Old Testament-citing preacher on homosexual issues was in the heart of San Francisco?

Word of the debacle began spreading via social media even before the operator of Yoshi's interrupted
Shocked's performance to announce that, as a gay man, he could not allow the show to continue and
she would have to leave the stage. Ironically, Shocked had spent much of the show asking the crowd
to engage with her and even pick her set list via Twitter. It's unclear whether she had any idea that
outraged former fans would be using that same forum to declare that they believe her career is over.

From all accounts, the first set had gone great, but when Shocked returned for the second set, she began
talking about the evils that will result if California's Proposition 8 is overturned by the courts, to allow
gay marriage in the state. Shocked cited verses from the Old Testament condemning homosexuality,
first in English and then, puzzlingly, in Spanish. She even told the crowd that they "could go on Twitter
and say 'Michelle Shocked says God hates f--s'," although that particular line was interpreted differently
by some on hand, as either ironic or completely sincere.    Link

Bart, that's Atlantic City. I can almost see a syringe.
 Andre' M.C.A

Bart, that's the good old Atlantic City boardwalk,
in the early 20th century by the look of the outfits.
 Paul, Yardville, NJ

It’s my birth town, Atlantic City, New Jersey, probably in the 1890’s.
The Steel Pier was famous, as was the Boardwalk the people are strolling upon.
As a child, I saw the famous diving horse, the dancing chicken, the Three Stooges (live),
The Association, some doo-wop groups, rode the diving bell to the empty sea floor,
(empty except for a rusty tin can and a single shoe), Mr. Peanut was across the way for
the big Planter’s store, etc., back in the late 1950’s and early 60’s, all at the Steel Pier. 
Dick Clark’s early show was out of Philadelphia and in the summers he moved his show
to the Steel Pier, or other places at ‘the shore,’ as it was called by those who thronged
there to escape the big city summer heat.

Sadly, after Super Storm Sandy, I have no idea what is left besides the monstrous casinos
that took over my beloved hometown.  And no I’ve never seen Boardwalk Empire.

What is today's History Mystery?   


Subject: last issue's History Mystery    Link 

That is, of course, James Marshall Hendrix, getting his fro done by a tarty stylist. 
But check it out.  He’s reading Mad Magazine Issue # 113 from May 1967. 
And if you look real close, it looks as though he has a leedle joint is his right hand!!!

The following is snatched from Doug Gilford’s Mad Cover Site (no, really):
Jimi Hendrix reads Mad Magazine #113 while getting his hair styled. This is an image
that never gets old. It was in a Life tribute to Mad Magazine which has mysteriously
disappeared from their site (but I would sure like to link to again). At that time in mid 2011
the link to the Life article image was all over the web and the Twitterverse. Months later
the image came back with a vengeance and will probably come and go with the ebb
and flow of the linky nature of this internet beast until the end of time.
 Rick P

Well, that's Jimi (saw him at JFK Stadium in Bridgeport CT, fall of 1968...opener was
Soft Machine-wish I'd paid more attention to them at the time) and that's gotta be
Monika Dannemann...his last girlfriend and the one who found his anywhere
from August 1969 to September 1970...I'd go with late 1969 from her hairstyle...where...
likely London...sidebar: she later married Uli John Roth...a good guitarist but no Jimi

I've never seen that picture of them...NICE!

He swung that guitar like you swing that hammer maybe even better
to this day I'm jaded when I see any other guitarist...he made it look so simple and easy
