This Week's WTF Moments

By The Reverend Published: March 28, 2009

Laugh-a-thon

By The Reverend Published: March 27, 2009

I have been thoroughly enjoying the Chinese firedrill, Keystone Kop, routine by the minority Republicans. It's been a real gas. I predicted long ago that the one good and positive accomplishment of George and Dick would be the total destruction of the Republican Party.

I just never knew how humorous it would turn out to be.

The Boss

By The Reverend Published: March 25, 2009

Ya' know how employees will chatter away about the boss when the boss isn't around? Those chattering employees are oh-so-sure that they know more than the boss and are happy to explain to fellow workers, whenever the boss is out of earshot, how they would do things differently and how the boss is clueless and so forth. A common dynamic.

Last night's hour long Obama press conference was like a situation where behind-the-boss's-back chatter was captured and presented in question form in front of the boss. "Reporters", like the AP's Jennifer Loven, NBC's Chuck Todd and Chip Reid, ABC's Jake Tapper, Fox's Major Garrett and CNN's cocky ass, Ed Henry......all critics of Obama's administration....found out last night that the boss is the boss for a reason.

Laughing Matters

Immediately following Sunday night's appearance of President Obama on Sixty Minutes, I told the Mrs. that Obama's smiling would be the Villager story dominating Monday's "news" cycle.

The God Report: Israel's "Religious War"

By The Reverend Published: March 23, 2009

Last week I blogged about the Pope's astonishly out-of-touch statement about AIDS. Pope Benedict said that "condoms increase the problem" of AIDS in Africa.

Here are a few international responses to what the Vicar said...

Looks Like Change To Me

By The Reverend Published: March 22, 2009

I have been mildly amused over all the conservative criticism of President Obama about how he has wilfully and cynically violated his own new lobbying rules. (See Sunday's AP piece entitled, "President learning campaign and reality can clash.") Same old, same old, they say. As any honest critic will agree, it's the trend of the person, not the isolated incident, that justifies the severest criticism.....but whatever....

Let's just review what we know.....

The God Report: Blasphemy in Philly

By The Reverend Published: March 21, 2009

The United States is a place where silly, medieval, religious beliefs don't determine our laws. We're free from the unenlightened nonsense often witnessed in backward countries like, say, Iran, whose silly embarassment of a government includes an "Office for Promotion of Virtue and Prohibition of Vice." Can you imagine? And who could forget the barbarian government in Taliban-controlled Afghanistan which sported their own, "Office for the Propagation of Virtue and the Prohibition of Vice?"

Squawkboxed

By The Reverend Published: March 20, 2009

I like CNBC's Mark Haines, anchor of "Squawkbox". I used to watch these guys every day, and Haines was a seemingly fairminded, knowledgable, and likable guy. Watch this 1:30 segment where Mark Haines and Democratic representative, Brad Sherman(D-CA), duel over taxing AIG bonus babies...

The Gospel According to David Brooks

By The Reverend Published: March 17, 2009

David Brooks has a reputation for being the New York Times "intellectual" conservative writer. I'm not sure why that is, really. The intellectual reputation, that is. Perhaps because the group of "intellectual" conservative writers is such a tiny one.

Hostage Nation

By The Reverend Published: March 16, 2009

As I see it, America, the nation of 300 million, is being held hostage.

It is as if specific and powerful interests have kidnapped the population, placed knives against our collective throats, and then have continually sent ranson notes warning that the kidnappers will slit those throats if the proper authorities do not do exactly as the kidnappers demand.

Ken Starr Returns

By The Reverend Published: March 7, 2009

Remember Mr. Ken Starr? Great guy...Mr. Starr. Such a good and righteous, god-fearing man....Mr. Starr. A dedicated Christian man...Mr. Starr. The kind of man who wouldn't say, sh*t, if he had a mouthful. Like I said, a good man.

So righteous a man, Mr Starr, that he wrote his own national pornographic account in concluding the Lewinsky circus. A detailed pornographic account of the world-and-nation-threatening event of a very willing Monica Lewinsky fellating a more-than-willing-to-be-fellated Bill Clinton. Mr. Starr saved the nation by exposing all the graphic details that make up consensual, you know, sex.

Jim Cramer's Expertise, Ike and Obama

By The Reverend Published: March 6, 2009

Ten years ago, I watched CNBC quite often. All those charts and numbers and analysts and financial experts....wow, what a bunch of cerebral genuises (new band name?). Rick Santelli, before he became the financial sector's Joe the Plumber, would give the bond market report each morning. The scene behind him was always a clusterf*ck of shouting and arm waving and mounds of order paper on the floor....you know....serious stuff. Why so serious? Because the CNBC guys were hardened, seasoned, hihgly trained, financial professionals, their guests, larger-than-life giant genuises....they knew so much about what they were talking about.

Like this guy...

Hoping Obama Fails

By The Reverend Published: March 4, 2009

UPDATED below.

Just what does it mean when radio host Rush Limbaugh, and now many others, say they hope Obama fails? What does that mean? And what would it look like, if indeed, Obama failed? Is "hoping for Obama failure" the same as hoping for American failure? And if it is....is it treasonous to root openly for America's failure?

12 American Solutions For Jobs & Prosperity

By The Reverend Published: March 2, 2009

I have always thought that Newt Gingrich was a bit odd. I thought his Contract With America plan in the 90's was pure corporate-friendly puffball showboating. The Gingrich-led 1994 takeover of Congress quickly went to Newt's head like a good bong hit....leading his self-pumped ego to threaten Bill Clinton, a popular president, with a shutdown of the federal government. The Newton, properly spanked by a much smarter, and more popular president, lost credibility....and power...and his Speaker position....and he hasn't, really, ever recovered.

The Conservative Bowel Movement

By The Reverend Published: March 1, 2009

I caught a couple hours of the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) Friday afternoon. I heard Mike Pence (R-IN) act all stern as he spewed forth a bunch of nonsense. I saw Mike Huckabee use some of his old-fashioned Christian bile in yet another attempt to be humorous. Lead balloon. Speaker after speaker came forward and yet not one new idea. Not one. Sad, really.
