Writer Erin O'Brien comments on all things human.
That's hilarious and I have to admit is much more entertaining than the "hero worship" clip I add here:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P36x8rTb3jI
These are the kind of earnest fuckers that make the idea the Yanks have ICBM's scary. Simply because they don't need a real enemy, the idea of one will be enough.Looking at this you have to wonder if the wrong superpower disarmed.
c'mon Vince. This is pretty harmless. If you want to get upset about something, check out a few decapitation vids or one of those "watch me kill myself and several others by detonating this vest" clips.
Be afraid, be very afraid. Some part of me want to believe that this is a jokey skit, but the realist knows that this shite is real and very close to home.Run fast......they are reloading
The good Mr. Dempsey uploaded this on Oct. 29, 2010.Think about that. It's stunning that these people think Palin is some caped hero that's going to descend upon Washington. Maybe they forgot that she quit her governorship in order to rake in the millions. GAWD.
I was wondering what ever happened to the Captain and Tinnille.
It wouldn't play for me EOB, but you are so right. How could people buy into a delusion that is sold by a quitter who exploits them for profit? Sarha has figured out that if enough people are willing to buy it, she is just not stupid enough to quit selling it...
Erin and Mark. It's really hatred of her by the left and the press that's keeping Palin relevant. Cable news programs broadcast entire segments on Palin, Rush, and Beck. It's pretty funny really. well, OK, after a valium it's funny.
Ah Bill those guys you refer have an enemy. A visible one. For no matter how you view it it's not the Iraqi army sitting in Des Moines.Those old-dears have no natural enemy beyond sunstroke. And what do they do but dream up potential trouble. Crime across the western world is at an all time low, but the perception of crime has never been higher. So these morons expect the State to react to their fears. And what do you get but being felt up by some spotty youth. Nor for that matter if you have a conservative view or one sucked from a plant pissed on by some Jamaican. No State can plausible react to unreasonable fears.
The camo hat is a nice touch. I'm gonna git me one.
As for the video - even O'Reilly made fun of this one.As for Palin - while it's no secret that the left hates her, I don't think that coming out and addressing every attack on her is the the best strategy. Some speculate that she's contemplating a presidential run in 2012; doing a back and forth against the left only makes her look less viable as a candidate and brings her down to their level. If I were advising Palin I'd tell her this ... Arguing with the left is like wrestling with a pig. Everyone gets dirty but only the pig enjoys it. Don't do it, it does you no good.All this being said, were she to run for President, I would not vote for her. While I like her and think she's smarter than most give her credit for, I don't think she packs the gear to be President (other than shotguns and hunting rifles, of course). This being said, I think she's a smokin' hockey mom .... ;-)AlTRAG
This is both hilarious and slightly scary.I think that the title: 'Battle Hymn', is the best bit. I mean, if I were going to ride out into battle, to rage against the unstoppable hordes of The Liberals, and their unholy Harvard Lawyer brethren, in a final desperate attempt to reclaim this Great American Republic, this would not be the exact soundtrack I would choose.
I don't know that I'm "the left" but I don't hate Palin. I'm just bewildered that she is considered a standard bearer. I would hate to have her finger on the nuke button though. I go agree her popularity/notoriety comes largely from negative reactions but I think the same case could be made for the Clinton's, Obama, et al.At any rate it seems to me the real losers in most any populist movement are people like our vocal duo who think folks like Palin would genuinely represent their interests.Sigh.RJ
RJ, I think Palin's appeal to many is very similar to Obama's. Both are relatively young; both espouse a vision and message (now, whether you agree with said message is a very personal thing); both appear vibrant and charismatic in their own way. And both espouse a message of hope - Obama on the left, and Palin on the right. I agree with you in that I don't think she's a "standard bearer" for the right. She is, however, for many on the right a counter to what they perhaps perceive as a shift to the left in this country. This is what I think fuels much of her popularity, rightly or wrongly. As I noted, I wouldn't vote for her, but I do admire the fact that she holds strong beliefs, and doesn't care what others think about that (or so it seems from her public pronouncements). In this sense, she is much like George W. Bush. I didn't agree with everything that Bush did/didn't do, but one of the things I liked about him was that one never wondered what his stance was on anything (well, at least I didn't). He took a position and stuck to it. Some might view that as intransigent, but I view it as knowing who one is and what one believes. For me, that was a reason to like the man, though I understand why many didn't for that very reason.AlTRAG
Well said RJ, well said.
Off topic: Correction. For those who went looking for the Calvin Klein feature in the new Vanity Fair I misspoke. It is Ralph Lauren who has an unbelievable collection of high performance autos. But it is in Vanity Fair. Hi Ho.RJ
RJ calls the singing couple, losers. I'm not sure I agree with you on that. In their world, they seem to be doing ok. Composing lyrics to a tune, singing in front of an appreciative congreation. They might think you are a loser. Of course, you're not.
I'm working on my own lyrics to "The Sarah Palin Battle Hymn of the Defugglicked"Sarah Palin can see Russia from her house-Sarah Palin has the First Dude as a spouse-I'll let you know how it comes out. Mebbe I'll record mine for YouTube as well.As for an "appreciative congregation" is concerned--nope. This mutha is a public post on the internet, where it's fair game for the whole wide world.
Erin:I'd give up something valuable to see/hear you sing your version of the Sarah Battle Hymm. "Mine eyes have seen the glory of the Palin fam il ly, they are freaking out the lefties on the net and on T V."I have more if you need it.
Nice one Bill! Replace 'lefties' with 'sane people' and you might have something there!I even have the perfect music to set it to: Entry of the Gladiators by Julius Fucik; it's often associated with military parades in the Czech Republic.You can check it out on Youtube here.It's very inspiring and sets exactly the right tone.
Dude: Except that sane people don't keep doing the same thing over and over, as in watching what they don't like over and over. I know! It took this blog (Erin) to suggest that I stop watching MSNBC. It was a life changing suggestion. Thanks E.
On a serious note, check this out: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c3_95F5e-AcJust kidding about the seriousness.
Two elders lipsynching in a tax exempt church while being protected by Social Security and Medicare, with the right to bear arms and voice any belief. God Bless America.Hope their mountaintop is not being dynamited behind them for coal.Also, I have noticed the price of ammo has dropped since Obama got in, I pay $8.99 per box of 50 for fairly obscure Russian rounds.Hunting skunks is dodgy, gotta get'em down before the sac opens.
In the interest of fairness, since the libs are so fond of the "fairness doctrine," here is a little ditty dedicated to Obama and the left, sung to the tune of the Battle Hymn of the Republic ...Mine eyes have seen the horror of the election of O-Bam,My poor stomach got so sick I had to hit the "John,"His teleprompter's working as he drones on and on,And his speech is such a boreFirst he gave us healthcare, and he said it would be free,But that ain't true, we'll pay for it or else a "penalty,"If we don't, he'll set the IRS on you and me,His *ull$hit marches on ....Barack, Barack you're a left wing whack job guy,Please, please go away, and take Pelosi to Hawai',Barack, Barack, you're a left wing whack job guy,And your speeches are a bore.The Dems controlled both houses of the congress for 4 years,We were subjected to Pelosi, Reid and Frank and all their peers,But November came, and sent them all packing on their ears,Pelosi is no more ...Boehner took on over, it pained Pelosi just to see,Republicans had the house, no more planes for Nancy,She'll have to fly commercial, the same as you and me,Her perks are surely gone ..Nancy, Nancy, you're out of the public eye,And speaking just for myself, I'd like to say goodbye,You no longer have your power, Boehner's now the guy,Your speaker's perks are gone.The Dems waited up until the lame duck to do any work,The pushed a lot of stuff through then, said the House and Senate clerks,This still doesn't change the fact that what they passed is gonna hurt,Their legacy (*cked us all.AlTRAG
Al! You've mastered the cut and paste function. You are a very good boy!
Erin, I've been the master of cut and paste for years - one doesn't survive as a staff officer or commander in today's military unless one is a Jedi Knight when it comes to Power Point, Word, and Excel. However, in this case, no cutting and pasting. It pains me to say it, but this was all me. I obviously have waaayyyy too much time on my hands.AlTRAG
Except for the fact that this is a music link, it's totally off topic. I like this:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lLJf9qJHR3E
Al, I am duly impressed.Bill, what the hell are you doing?
Red wine expands the thought process. Can't believe I drank that whole bottle.
Dear Bill,I don't believe in those cloying "donate" links for sites such as mine, but I think you should consider sending me a C-note on general principal. I'd buy a new marital aid with it.Yes, I am singling you out. No, it is not fair. See the "contact" link in the sidebar for addy information and thank you for your continued support.Love,Erin
Erin: OK. I had to look up "cloying". Having done that I went back to the youtube link that I posted. Call me slow, but your comment is way over my head. I just liked that song, and had never heard of them before. But, if I WERE trying to sell something, your blog would be one of the first places I'd go; with permission and compensation, of course. Love, Bill
But wait! Did I misinterpret your comment? I'm so confused.
