Reality eventually asserts itself, ideology notwithstanding.

Glenn Reynolds

I’ve mentioned this weekend that even if she gets the nomination (and don’t think for one minute the Biden “regret” story is not about making it clear that the Democrat powers that be are having 2nd thoughts) Hillary Clinton is doomed doomed doomed.

There are many reasons for this, but lets cut to the chase, the left has spent the last four years convincing themselves that candidate Hillary Clinton is the Hot Chick here who will energize liberals to dance.

But the reality is Hillary the candidate looks is this:

Alas Poor Democrats Reality Sucks

With apologies to the Buckinghams.

Note the background chorus of consultants lyrics are in (parentheses)


Kind of a drag if Obama campaigns for you,
Kind of a drag if our prospects get screwed

Oh, listen:
(Listen to  our focus groups’, We checked out the data troupes)

(The numbers tank when voters seen ya’ , So, You know we just can’t Meet ya)

To what our polling says;

You know I love you, (Ooh, We all love you)
I’ll always love you (Ooh, we’ll always love you.)
but stay away, Stay Away, STAY AWAY!

Kind of a drag, can’t have Barack ’round,
Kind of a drag he brings our numbers right down.

Oh oh Obama,
( Listen to me when I’m speakin’, cause can’t have these words be leakin’ )

(and although I’ll gotta diss ya , In my heart you know I’m still smitten.)

Even though you poll so bad,

I still love you,(Ooh, I still love you.)
I’ll always love you(Ooh I’ll always love you.)
but stay away, Stay Away, STAY AWAY!

Oh, listen

(Listen to me to what I’m sayin’ , ‘come Nov I won’t be strayn’)

(and you know when safely seated, When you need me we’ll be meetin’.)

Once it’s past election day;  

I’ll be loyal,
(Ooh I’ll be loyal.)
And I’ll Support you
(Ooh, I’ll support you.)
In every way , Every way, Every way!

For any of our readers too young to remember the real thing, here it is:


Olimometer 2.52

It’s Thursday and focusing on the pluses we are only %554 away from our monthly goal and a fully paid mortgage. down from nearly $700 at the start of the week.

Unfortunately with only two days to go we’re going to need $277 a day to make the our goal.

If we start our year (we go feb to Jan) it will be kind of a drag, but with your help we’ll make it.

obama fall

Who would have thought that a sane person could see this image and have to think about the answer to that question?


Olimometer 2.52

It’s money and I’m scrambling to finish things before leaving tonight DC and the Exempt America from Obamacare Rally

While I didn’t manage 10% of last Sunday we did manage 10% of the weekly paycheck goal.

Only $273 and 14 more $20 tip jar hitters are needed to fill this weeks paycheck. It would be nice to leave for DC with a full check already in hand.

If you would care to help in that quest please hit DaTipJar below.

and if you’re going to be in DC Tuesday look me up.


Still looking to crowdsource my radio advertising. If you want more info click this link and make up to to $400 for yourself.

Let’s see, we have two sex-addicted dishonest politicians running for office in New York, Obama just rolled out a sweeping plan to solve the global-warming problem that Senator Boxer’s own experts testified to a Senate committee doesn’t exist, a filibuster by a feminist legislature in Texas got more media attention than the whole Gosnell trial, and Al Sharpton has again reminded us why the only network that would give him a job is MSNBC.

In other words, we’ve had enough craziness for now.  Let’s take a break and focus on something that doesn’t make you want to move to Canada.  How about some political trivia?  I bet you didn’t know that Croatia was the first country to recognize the United States in 1776.  I’ve grabbed some of the more interesting factoids from a site that has tons of these (to see the source of the trivia, click here).  The color commentary in the parenthesis is from me:

  • Theodore Roosevelt was the first American President to win the Nobel Peace Prize. He won for his arbitration of treaty discussions at the end of the Russo-Japanese War. (that’s a real reason to win a Nobel Peach Prize)
  • The only four countries that start with the letter “D” are Denmark, Djibouti, Dominica and the Dominican Republic.
  • Americans pay over $30,500 in federal, state, and local taxes every second (that I believe, probably more since this was printed)
  • Before Bill Clinton, no left-handed American president had ever served two
  • In England, the Speaker of the House is not allowed to speak.
  • Winston Churchill, Franklin Delano Roosevelt, Theodore Roosevelt and Eleanor Roosevelt were all cousins through one connection or another. FDR and Eleanor were about five times removed.
  • FDR was the most superstitious president — he traveled continually but never left on a Friday. He also wouldn’t sit at the same table that held thirteen other people.
  • Of all U.S. Presidents, none lived to be older than John Adams, who died at the age of 91.
  • President John Quincy Adams owned a pet alligator which he kept in the East Room of the White House.
  • John Quincy Adams took his last skinnydip in the Potomac on his seventy-ninth birthday.
  • Jimmy Carter was the first president born in a hospital.
  • Gerald Ford pardoned Robert E. Lee posthumously of all crimes of treason.
  • Gerald Ford was once a male model.
  • The lightest President of the United States was James Madison who was 5′ 4″ and weighed under 100 pounds. The tallest was Lincoln at 6′ 4″. The heaviest was Howard Taft who, at times, weighed over 300 pounds. Source: “Knowledge in a Nutshell”
  • Andrew Jackson was the only U.S. President to believe that the world is flat.
  • President Andrew Jackson spent most of his adult life with a bullet no more than two inches away from his heart as a result of a duel he fought before becoming President.
  • President Taft got stuck in his bathtub on his Inauguration Day and had to be pried out by his attendants.
  • The reason Maryland did not seceed from the Union in 1865 was that President Lincoln had the state legislators arrested.
  • George Washington’s false teeth were made of whale bone.
  • George Washington was deathly afraid of being buried alive. After he died, he wanted to be layed out for three days just to make sure he was really dead.
  • George Washington had to borrow money to go to his own inauguration.
  • James K. Polk was the only President to have been Speaker of the House. (Sorry, Newt)
  • Julie Nixon, daughter of Richard Nixon, married David Eisenhower, grandson of Dwight D. Eisenhower.
  • Harrison was the only president born in the same county as his vice president.
  • Ronald Reagan and his wife Nancy Davis appeared opposite each other in the movie “Hellcats of the Navy.”
  • Ronald Reagan was the only President who studied economics in college. (this really should be a requirement for all Presidents)
  • When the Hoovers did not want to be overheard by White House guests, they spoke to each other in Chinese.
  • William Howard Taft was the first President to own a car.
  • When Harry Truman left office in 1952 he got in his own car and drove himself back to Missouri.
  • According to historian Doris Kearns Goodwin, Lyndon Johnson loved the soda Fresca so much he had a fountain installed in the Oval Office that dispensed the beverage, which the president could operate by pushing a button on his desk chair. Fresca is a grapefruit- flavored soda sold on the East Coast.
  • The Baby Ruth candy bar was actually named afte Grover Cleveland’s baby daughter, Ruth.
  • There was some question as to whether Barry Goldwater could legaly serve as President. The Constitution requires presidents to be born in the United States. Goldwater was born in Arizona before it was a state. (We’ll remember this if Ted Cruz runs for President)

Update: I have corrected the statement that David Eisenhower is President Eisenhower’s son, his is actually his grandson.  Thanks to Ellen Kolb for the correction in the comments.

For those of you counting calories, here is something to smile about.  This 105-year-old woman from Texas claims that eating bacon each day has helped her live a long life.  From

Cantrell does not need a cane or a walker and was still driving her own car at 104 years old until a bout of sickness in September of 2012.

“She had gone dancing just last October,’’ her daughter said. “This year she danced on her birthday. It’s unbelievable. And she still wants bacon for breakfast every day, so we take turns where I cook it for her at my house or she cooks it at her house.”

Cantrell gave birth to eight children, one of whom died at 9 months old, and five of the seven children she raised are still alive. When she wasn’t snacking on bacon at home, she would often get it at her favorite restaurant, the Little Yellow Duck in Richland Springs. She still eats two slices every morning for breakfast and sometimes also has two slices for lunch.

If you don’t like bacon, here are some more tips for a long life from other centenarians.  Among them:

Eat the same thing each day

Do what you love

Participate in extreme sports

Do what you want and eat what you want (and don’t exercise)

Drink Scotch

Some pretty good ideas.  I think I’ll start with the bacon.

Beloved, do not look for revenge but leave room for the wrath; for it is written, “Vengeance is mine, I will repay, says the Lord.”

Rather, “if your enemy is hungry, feed him; if he is thirsty, give him something to drink; for by so doing you will heap burning coals upon his head.”

Romans 12:19-20

Why is it that when I watch this

I see this?

As a Sicilian I have advice for Romney if the Saturday debate Newt asks for permission to go to the bathroom, RUN!

I am totally uninterested in his successful prediction of Herman Cain debate win of May.

His thoughts on the advancement of the South Carolina Primary on his site is of no consequence to me, nor are his thoughts at the Spectator on Florida move worth my time.

I can’t be bothered with his thoughts on Mark Block, Herman Cain latest straw poll, tough times for musicians, the cheap Koch attack.

And I’m certainly not interested in this take on Erick Erickson and Rick Perry:

So if the Perry announcement was a testament to the “growing influence” of Red State, whose influence had indeed grown so overwhelming that they were willing to throw Malkin under their bus, what does it mean when Erick Erickson starts publicly dissing Perry?

Nope, not interested, don’t care, no thought about it at all.

Now as for the rule 5 post….
