In Which I Make Fun of Matthew Yglesias’ Fashion Choices

Saturday, August 30th, 2014

If you haven’t see Matthew Yglesias’ purple plaid sports coat and pastel plaid tie combination (which has been making the rounds for a while now), it is something to behold:

Both Kurt Schlichter and I chimed in on it:

It’s Labor Day Weekend, so this is what you get instead of actual content…

LinkSwarm for Novermber 1, 2013

Friday, November 1st, 2013

A small LinkSwarm this time out, as I was busy with Halloween and other stuff this week:

  • How many Americans will lose their coverage under ObamaCare? Would you believe 93 Millions? And those are Obama Administration estimates.
  • 30-something figures out he’ll be screwed by ObamaCare.
  • Awesome (real) image via David Freddoso on Twitter:

  • Obama Administration insists that inflation you see is just imaginary.
  • “New Poll Shows Democratic Incumbents in Big Trouble.”
  • We have a winner for Worst Bath Salts Freakout Not Involving Face-Eating:

    Not sure if this needs a language warning or not, since I don’t Crazy High Redneck.

  • I was out of town, so I missed this tiny race riot at Highland Mall. (Hat tip: UrbanGrounds)
  • Cool story of World War II bomber heroism.
  • Links to annual Fark Scary Story Threads for this and previous years.
  • Day of the Dead Memes.
  • Happy Diwali! I’m not Hindu, but I’m always in favor of holidays where you blow things up.
  • Rosemary Lehmberg: Seen at The Gun Show

    Hat tip: Dwight, who brings us news that Lehmberg “won’t be seeking reelection.” Well, duh. People who have been removed from office don’t run for reelection…

    Attorney General Abbott: Austin & Travis County Better Expect “Double-Barreled Lawsuit” Over Gun Show Ban

    Tuesday, January 8th, 2013

    Over on my Twitter account, I asked Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott about Austin and Travis County’s proposed gun show ban in light of LG.229.

    This is what he put up:

    If Austin or Travis Co. try to ban gun shows they better be ready for a double-barreled lawsuit.

    Now, a Twitter post hardly comes to the level of an official press release from the Attorney General’s office, but it does represent a shot across the bow of Austin and Travis County gun grabbers who think they can flout state law without consequences.

    Finally, I must admit that I really dig Abbott’s Twitter background:

    Ohio: Mitt Romney is Drawing Crowds Like U2, Obama is Drawing Crowds Like Whitesnake

    Friday, November 2nd, 2012

    Romney draws 30,000 at single rally in Ohio.

    (Pic via Brennan Hall (@bren_nan) on Twitter)

    Meanwhile, Obama is drawing crowds in Ohio between 2,800 and 4,000. That’s a good crowd…for a Whitesnake concert. It’s pretty piss poor for the President of the United States of America. I guess it’s hard to draw a crowd when you already have the stink of failure on you.

    (I would like to apologize in advance to any Whitesnake fans offended by crowd size comparisons to Obama. If you believe limited government, the Vast Right Wing Conspiracy welcomes you whether you’re a hair metal fan, a brony, a hipster, a juggalo, or even a furry (I thought it best not to link anything for that one), as long as you’re voting against Obama!)

    Obama Asserts Executive Privilege Over Fast and Furious Documents

    Wednesday, June 20th, 2012

    Backing up Eric Holder’s stonewall of congressional investigation of Fast and Furious, today Obama asserted Executive Privilege over subpoenaed Fast and Furious documents. As Judge Napolitano noted, executive privilege only applies if the President was personally involved. That does rather suggest that Obama himself was involved in the decision to let guns walk across the Mexican border to drug cartels, doesn’t it?

    I believe this cartoon by Nate Beeler of the Washington Examiner is good:

    But I liked this altered version better:

    I haven’t been doing much coverage of Fast and Furious, mainly because bloggers like Sipsey Street and Snowflakes in Hell/Shall Not Be Questioned were doing such good jobs moving the story forward I didn’t feel a need. But now that the Obama Administration is in full cover-up mode, well, bring the swarm.

    Remember: Over 200 innocent people have died due to Fast and Furious. So when liberals tell you that “It’s not Watergate,” they’re right. It’s much worse.

    And the Ted Cruz campaign emailed a reminder that Cruz was on top of the Fast and Furious scandal before anyone else in the Senate race.

    Tom Leppert And ACORN

    Monday, May 9th, 2011

    Matt S. Dowling has a post up up claiming that not only was Tom Leppert playing footsie with the SEIU, but he also sought the endorsement of everyone’s favorite pimp assistance agency, ACORN.

    Unfortunately, he hasn’t actually provided the links to the evidence. When I pressed him on the issue in comments, he said “You ask and you shall receive….on Wednesday.”

    Well, I like things sooner rather than later, and I wonder if he was hinting at this video showing Leppert hobnobbing with ACORN. Here’s the embedded MySpace version of it (I know, in the age of YouTube that’s like asking you to listen to a Victrola, but that’s the format it’s in):

    Tom Leppert Supports ACORN for Dallas Mayor

    bird | Myspace Video

    The video, with a date of June 1, 2007, looks like it was put together an ACORN/Hispanic outreach video for Leppert’s mayoral campaign. (Don’t ask me why they put the sepia-tone wash over everything.) And here’s a screen capture of the pledge it shows Leppert signing:

    Assuming the date is accurate, and there’s no funny stuff in the video editing, it does indeed show that Leppert sought ACORN’s endorsement, and pledged to support some of their initiatives.

    How damaging will this be to Leppert’s campaign? I don’t know. So much RINO baggage has tumbled out of Leppert’s closet that I don’t know how much more damage another skeleton can inflict.

    I do look forwarding to checking in with Dowling on Wednesday to see what he’s dug up…

    My Contribution to Everyone Draw Mohammed Day

    Wednesday, May 12th, 2010

    In celebration of Everyone Draw Mohammed Day, I’ve produced my own artistic contribution to the form. I’ve taken as my subject a particular historical even in the life of Mohammed, the Battle of Badr, in 624 AD, in which Mohammed first promised paradise to his followers in battle. The original was rendered in black ink on an 8 1/2″ x 11″ sheet of laser printer paper. I considered digitally cleaning up mistakes, but thought that would detract from the overall “art brut” feel of the piece.

    Below find a thumbnail of drawing. Click on the thumbnail to see a larger version.

    Mohammed at the Battle of Badr, 624 AD

    In addition to (Wahabbist-defined) blasphemy, this work also commits the sin of resurrecting a two-decades stale Saturday Night Live catchphrase.

    I think this drawing goes a long way to explain why I’m a writer rather than an artist…
