Uh oh. Shots fired:
President Barack Obama’s bus tour of Pennsylvania and Ohio made a stop at Ziggy’s Pub and Restaurant in Amherst, Ohio this evening where he mingled with the patrons. According to the press pool report filed by The New York Times’ Mark Landler, the president suggested one of the bargoers ask for the channel to be changed on a pub TV that was showing Fox News:
“As he thanked the group for their support, one of them, Jeff Hawks, gestured to one of the TV’s and said, ‘You’re in a building that has Fox news on.’
Obama suggested that Hawks ask for it to be changed. ‘The customer is always right,’ he said.”
I can see the headline on Fox and Drudge and Rush and you-name-it in five minutes: Proof that
n-word Wants to Control Your Mind.
This YouTube video is making the rounds tonight
but I smell a rat. I don’t trust it. Is it real? Is that 12-year-old kid really the younger version of the older guy?
One thing I know for sure is that I love the last line: “Don’t blink.” Don’t blink because before you know it you’ll be 40 and then 60 and then 70 and then you’ll be dead (if you’re lucky).
Huzzah. And the list will only grow:
See an easier-to-read version here.
Democrats should wrap this guys picture around Mitt Romney’s head:
Recently on his radio show, Limbaugh took a call from a man who wanted to blame Obama’s 2008 election on uninformed youth. Limbaugh interrupted him and said……drumroll…..
“Ehhh, I can do one better than that. When WOMEN got the right to vote is when it all went downhill. Because that’s when votes started being cast with emotion and uh, maternal instincts that government ought to reflect …….”
All of a sudden, Rush stops talking mid-sentence as if he’s realized what a horrible mistake he’s just made. His caller took advantage of the silence and continued talking about how young people are the ones ruining elections. Limbaugh interrupts his caller, who he was clearly not listening to, as he tries to figure out how to extract his foot from his BIG MOUTH and said:
“Yeah…I…Look, I’m joking about the women’s vote. I just got a little frustrated here…”
Given Rush’s record — remember Sandra Fluke — I don’t think he’s “joking.”
As if that isn’t enough fodder for some major noise on the part of D. C. Democrats, this happened yesterday:
A New York state lawmaker has canceled a feminine etiquette class after it incited outcry from his colleagues and constituents.
Republican Sen. Marty Golden’s website advertised a July 24 class that would teach women from his Brooklyn district to “sit, stand and walk like a model” and how to “walk up and down a stair elegantly,” according to CBS Station WCBS.
Other goals of the “Polished Professional” summer series were to teach women “posture, deportment and the feminine presence,” as well as how to “correctly introduce self and others to: religious leaders, politicians, military and other socially prominent officials.”
Come on Democrats — are you in a coma or what? ACT UP!
Woohoo! I am so happy to get this news. Last I heard there was a little area immediately southwest of town that they were having trouble with:
The Flagstaff Fire is now 100 percent contained, nine days after it was started by a lightning strike near Bison Drive, according to officials.
Firefighters were able to reach total containment on the 300-acre blaze Wednesday, according to Kim Kobel, a spokeswoman for the Boulder Fire Department.
The Boulder Fire Department took command of the fire at 6 a.m. Wednesday, according to officials.
Kobel said Boulder fire Chief Larry Donner took a tour of the fire perimeter today (July 5, 2012) and crews will continue to monitor the fire lines until the fire is completely out.
OMG, this has got to be my Break Time! post for the day. I know, I know, I’m doing exactly what Taco Bell wanted but I can’t help it, it’s a fun story:
Taco Bell took the notion of delivery service to a whole new level recently, helicoptering in a truck laden with 10,000 tacos to a small Alaskan town after learning that residents had been teased with false hopes of a restaurant opening.
What began as a feud between two area residents morphed into a full-fledged PR marketing opportunity on Sunday, when the world’s largest Mexican-style fast food chain deployed a helicopter from Anchorage to airlift in a truck full of tacos to the town of Bethel, population 6,200, according to local newspaper the Alaska Dispatch.
Throngs of local residents watched from the sidelines as a full-sized truck harnessed to a chopper was dropped gently in a community center parking lot. As soon as as the all-clear was given, thousands of people — adults and children — rushed the truck and gorged on the chain’s wildly popular Doritos Locos Tacos.
Last month, feuding pranksters papered the town with flyers and banners advertising the arrival of Taco Bell — what would have been a milestone for residents given that the only fast food chain is a Subway.
This is my Tweet of the Day and hey, it’s a great question:
