All Hail the Whiner in Chief

Poor Barry - life in the White House has been a thrill except for one little thing - the criticism he received for his "date night" with Michelle on the taxpayers' dime, which also tied up much of New York City at the time:

"People made it into a political issue," Obama told The New York Times Magazine for an article about the Obamas' marriage, appearing in the Nov. 1 issue. The article was posted on the Times' Web site on Wednesday.

"If I weren't president, I would be happy to catch the shuttle with my wife to take her to a Broadway show, as I had promised her during the campaign, and there would be no fuss and no muss and no photographers," he said. "That would please me greatly."

Presidents, however, don't travel by any means other than secure government aircraft or vehicles.

Obama added: "The notion that I just couldn't take my wife out on a date without it being a political issue was not something I was happy with."

Considering the hefty pricetag and huge security nightmare that descended upon NYC's Broadway district, couldn't Barry have just taken the little woman to dinner in Georgetown and a night out at the Kennedy Center? Or would there not have been enough media coverage for sticking close to home?

He's also still kvetching about George Bush having "left" him this mess, for which Charles Krauthammer rightly takes him to task.

Every president is given a plateful of leftovers when he takes office, but I can't remember a president in my lifetime who continued to put the blame on his predecessor instead of taking responsibility for the current situation. He won a year ago! He's been in office nearly 10 months! When will he stop using George W. Bush as a punching bag every time the polls lurch downward? The campaign is long over, and finger pointing just isn't going to cut it anymore.

Time to man up, Barry, and quitcher bitchin'.

Tin Foil Hat Madness

As a longtime fan of comic books (husband-dude here) I've watched with some dismay as comic books have gone from subversive to outright deranged. The worst part is watching entertainment become increasingly politicized in every medium: Films, books, comic books, music. Just an outright avalanche of crap.

On the increasingly not so cool website aintitcool.com the following review for an independent comic called "The Last Days of American Crime" descends into outright lunacy. The story involves a near future where... get this... a Republican gets his hand on a mind control ray and uses it to alter everyone's pattern of thinking.

Here's the tin foil thinking behind this piece of fluff:

"I did think in terms of What if some neo-con ended up with this thing? There are a lot of ethical implications to mind control. Its obviously not something anyone should have. 'It sort of spun out from that, I was thinking Well, after 9/11 we gave up -- or had taken from us -- all our personal freedoms.' "

Gosh, we certainly did lose a lot of personal freedoms after 9/11. Habeus corpus suspended, assembly restricted, citizens sent to concentration camps, guns taken away, books burned, etc. I remember those dark days well.

This passes for normal... On the bright side, little kids aren't reading this nonsense as comic books have become overpriced and out of reach of a generation more interested in video games. Only comic book guys a la the Simpson's would waste their time putting such fine reading material in plastic slipcovers.

The real complaint is this. I go to sites such as aintitcool to get a break from the daily propaganda and constant background noise of politics - unfortunately there's no relief.

Update: I finally realized what the awarding of the Nobel Prize to Barack Obama reminded me of.

The Emperor Nero was quite the fan of accolades and awards. Some time during his reign he decided he was an Olympian - so off he went to Greece. Most notable was his performance in the chariot race.

If you're thinking Ben-Hur - guess again. He fell out of his chariot at one point and the rest of the competitors had to stop as the Emperor recovered his composure and trotted back into the lead to claim the laurel wreath.

Obama's Nobel Prize is on par with Nero's Olympic victory.

Silly Taxpayer: 40-Hour Work Weeks are for the Little People

Remember when Congress promised to work four or five days a week when the Dems took over in 2006? They were going to really work hard and earn their pay from us. Well, the more things change, the more they stay the same:

Like most Americans, members of the House are expected to report promptly no excuses when summoned by their bosses for the start of another workweek. One difference: For lawmakers, starting time doesnt come until about 6:30 Tuesday evening.

After taking control of the House in 2006 and again when President Barack Obama was elected president in 2008 Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-Md.) boasted that lawmakers would work four or five days a week to bring change to America.

But midway through Obamas first year in office, Hoyers House has settled into a more leisurely routine. Members usually arrive for the first vote of the week as the sun sets on Tuesdays, and theyre usually headed back home before it goes down again on Thursdays.

Since the House returned for its fall session on Sept. 8, it has stuck around to vote on a Friday just once: to approve a 5.8 percent increase in Congresss own budget.

Read more here.

An aide defended the schedule by claiming it's silly to keep representatives in Washington for four or five days if they can get the work done in a shorter amount of time.

Ah, I see - the House is efficient! So efficient that they've all had time to read the enormous health care "reform" bill we've heard so much about, right?


That's what I thought.

Of course, on the bright side, the less time they spend in Washington, the less time they have to screw things up. See? There's always a silver lining.

But it's Edgy!

Rush Limbaugh told the audience of his radio show that he had sexual relationships with female members of his staff, adding that he'd forked over a bogus $2 million check as part of an extortion plot on the matter.

Oh, my bad, how could we have put in the wrong name?

I meant David Letterman. And you see, this was edgy - that's why the audience laughed along. Especially the Roman Polanski joke - so nuanced!

Way to go Dave, you should have stayed stuck on velcro - not your staffers.
