Speech! 25 January 2011

Posted by marisacat in 2012 Re Election, DC Politics, Inconvenient Voice of the Voter, Total fucking lunatics.

Upcoming methane expulsion… to describe the Speech!   The antidote is frequent application of alcohol.



1. brinn - 25 January 2011

Thanks be to son the younger’s music teacher, who (unwittingly or not) has scheduled him to sing tonight, and has saved me from the gas expulsion!

marisacat - 25 January 2011

A very good out!

brinn - 25 January 2011

Damnit. It didn’t last long enough….has he not even frakking STARTED yet?!

Madman in the Marketplace - 25 January 2011

the pre-speech circle jerk took longer than expected … Boehner kept bursting into tears and ruining the mood. The poor pages are all tired out now.

brinn - 25 January 2011

LOL! Well, I guess I’m glad I missed THAT!

hmm via Business Insider:

Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak’s family may have just fled Egypt for the UK, according to Arabic website Akhbar al-Arab (via Adnkronos).

The most important rumored member in the party: Mubarak’s son, Gamal Mubarak, who has long been assumed to be his presidential heir.

According to the report:

Officials did not immediately confirm the report that Gamal Mubarak has fled to the British capital with his wife and daughter aboard a private jet.

The jet with Mubarak, his family and 97 pieces of luggage on board left for London on Tuesday from an airport in western Cairo, according to the US-based Akhbar al-Arab.

For those who bought the rumor over the weekend that gold was being smuggled out of Egypt to the Netherlands, this may come as no surprise.

Protests have continued into the night, undeterred by police attacks.

97 pieces of luggage – think of the fees on that!

marisacat - 25 January 2011

Return your seats and tray tables to their upright position!!!!!!!!

BooHooHooMan - 25 January 2011

..undeterred by police attacks.

Eyebrows raised on that.


3. mattes - 25 January 2011

We’re all Israelis now:

Russia needs Israeli-style airport security in the wake of a suspected suicide bombing in Moscow, the country’s president has said.


BooHooHooMan - 25 January 2011

Well, naked editorializing by the BBC at least.
After Medvedev’s visit to Israel was just cancelled??
And he just visited the West Bank instead?
That at least Shimon Peres had the sensibility to make an apology for his crassy ass kook of a country?

Welp, for everybody’s sake, the RW paranoiacs in Israel better not have had the slightest shit-stirring connection to this.
Putin has vowed “inevitable retribution”.
And I’d take him at his word, as there are signs he’s tiring of managing the quarrelsome Israeli Gangsters and a counterfeit WikiLeaks, RuLeaks, they just happened to pop up recently, leaking photos of his new villa.

May they all claw each other to death, and I know where you’re coming from mattes, they’d turn us all into naked work tourists o’er the planet if deemed serviceable outside the cage, but I’d really want an EXACT translation. No direct quote in the BBC piece. FWIW, RT has a small clip of Medvedevs remarks.

marisacat - 25 January 2011

But Medvedev just was in israel. He was to return so quickly?? (whne he was there they took him to where John baptised Jesus… -snicker-)

BooHooHooMan - 25 January 2011

By some accounts, yes, Bethlehem is in Israel.
Then again so is New York and DC by mine. LOL.
I seriously doubt they were on Medvedevs TPMs tho.
And Yep, Putins lad scooted back to Russia faster ‘n a , well faster’n a Rahm Emanual petition can be goose-shat through the Illinois Supreme Court!
And that’s pretty fast! 😆

mattes - 25 January 2011

I’ve not kept up with Medvedev and “Russian gangsters” too much lately, but the attack reminded me mightily of 911 and Bibi’s comments: how it benefited Israel that the States had now experienced first hand what poor Israelis have had to suffer for decades.

…..As the world spoke ‘We’re all Americans today’.

BooHooHooMan - 25 January 2011

No doubt on BiBi. And I’m not saying, regardless of the origin of attack, that Putin & Co. wouldn’t use it for whatever purposes..Chechnya, justifying whatever else they saw fit..

I’m not naive : They’re ALL Gangsters, the facile “US” / “Them” has just minor variance in grain of one veneer or other.

With an important exception: the current U.S. and Israeli leadership have a longer record and greater motive for War and pursuing global chaos than any other cabal present.

Sure it could be “the usual suspects”.
But the greater threat of instability in Russia is hardly from Chechnya. Its transnational warfare among the assorted Mafiosa themselves; “Ours” “theirs” “the Israelis”, I think it really is secondary tho whether a “Don” is in the government or not. Revolving doors and all that.

Notice how the – hello- PLUTONIUM poisoning trail all over the EU just kinda got Commision Report filed away..

mattes - 25 January 2011

Ya…what EVER happened to that story. Russian oligarchs an’ all.

4. mattes - 25 January 2011

….damn, I just finished my last margarita. Sure wish I had another four pack, with a side of Jose Cuervo, for Obamas’ speech. 😦

5. mattes - 25 January 2011

Hey did you know…..you could make,

Diamonds produced from tequila

A method of producing synthetic diamonds using tequila – Mexico’s favourite alcoholic drink – has been discovered, scientists there say.


No wonder the stuff gives me a tremendous hangover.

marisacat - 25 January 2011

Your brain on diamonds!

Madman in the Marketplace - 25 January 2011

BooHooHooMan - 25 January 2011

Okay. There’s no way I can listen to any more of Lawrence O’Donnell.

mattes - 25 January 2011

Slim pickings.

catnip - 25 January 2011

No kidding. You know it’s hopeless when you actually prefer listening to Blitzer. I should switch over to the CDN channel…

13. Madman in the Marketplace - 25 January 2011
14. brinn - 25 January 2011

No. No, the symbolism is NOT important! Not in the least fucking bit.

15. catnip - 25 January 2011

Where’s Boehner’s huge…gavel?

(He is SO on the verge of tears.)

catnip - 25 January 2011

He’s also looking quite spectacularly orange this evening.

mattes - 25 January 2011

Noticed that. He always looks too yellow, it’s a simple video camera adjustment.

catnip - 25 January 2011

He looks darker than Obamalama.

mattes - 25 January 2011

LOL…I thought you were talking about Obama!
All the flesh tones look off.

16. BooHooHooMan - 25 January 2011

Oh fuck there goes Boehner BWAAHAWHAWL

17. brinn - 25 January 2011

I love my kid (both of ’em of course, but this is the 7-year-old)– I told him the president was talking. Told him it was called “The State of the Union”. That presidents give it every year and it is supposed to be about what’s going on in the country.
He asks: “is he doing it right now? I say yes.
He says: “it should be called the ‘stupid president place’.
I ask, what place would that be?
He says: “The place we are right now.”

What else is there to say?

marisacat - 25 January 2011

How perfect!

brinn - 25 January 2011

Thanks, Marisa!
I thought so too! Some days when I look at them, I think maybe there is hope for something different for them…

catnip - 25 January 2011

He’s obviously one of those kinder-terrorists.

brinn - 25 January 2011

I can only hope! 😉 We can flee to you when they come after us, right?

catnip - 25 January 2011

Sure! Bring your own tent!

18. Madman in the Marketplace - 25 January 2011
19. catnip - 25 January 2011

Is it just me or is he straining to sound excited? Sounds faux to me…

20. BooHooHooMan - 25 January 2011

Poised for Progress People! Pretty Plain to see plastic platitudes only partially peel away the pain of the Pacific Rim Pants wedgie we weally been fealwing of late.


brinn - 25 January 2011


BooHooHooMan - 25 January 2011

Hey Brinn! I’ve been reading along and didn’t want to crowd ya. Having been thru some things that rocked me to the core, I bet the last thing you need is any reminder of resilience but I want you to know I’m really grateful for seeing yours.

brinn - 25 January 2011

Wow. Thanks, BHHM — I needed that!

You’ll never crowd me — no worries!

That’s innovation!

31. brinn - 25 January 2011

Yeah, ’cause too many schools don’t have books or desks or pencils…

Race to the Top my ASS — fucking lying stupid fucker !!

32. catnip - 25 January 2011

We need to get behind this innovation. And to help pay for it, I’m asking Congress to eliminate the billions in taxpayer dollars we currently give to oil companies

Don’t make me laugh…

33. dr-gonzo - 25 January 2011

34. brinn - 25 January 2011

We want good schools all across the country — we just don’t want to pay for them!

Fuck respect — show me the money!!


catnip - 25 January 2011

Your country needs you, brinn! It just doesn’t need to give you a job.

brinn - 25 January 2011

I need to go out on the side of the road with a sign that says: “Will Teach for Food” — actually, I need to re-read that book, maybe write a sequel!

35. Madman in the Marketplace - 25 January 2011

and we’ll show that respect by privatizing the schools and breaking the unions and getting rid of tenure, right Arne?!?!

36. dr-gonzo - 25 January 2011

37. catnip - 25 January 2011

ZOMG – what a boring, fucking speech. I missed Law & Order: SVU for this?

mattes - 25 January 2011

uninspiring…who wrote this?

catnip - 25 January 2011

My guess would be a South Korean (?)…

38. catnip - 25 January 2011

He’s obviously suffering from South Korea Envy™

39. brinn - 25 January 2011

LOLOLOL! I love how they showed the Chinese guy right after he said “America is the nation who built the transcontinental railroad”!

Some of the camera people have a couple brain cells to run together?

catnip - 25 January 2011

Good catch. 🙂

40. mattes - 25 January 2011

I don’t know what is going on with education, but a friend of mine’s daughter has only been teaching for 2 years and now wants out.

Madman in the Marketplace - 25 January 2011

I have a friend who teaches in inner-city Chicago who got punched in the face the other day by a disruptive student she ejected from the classroom when he wouldn’t quiet down during one of the mandated state tests.

mattes - 25 January 2011

Sometimes I think we are poisening ourselves…there is no other explantion for the dumbdown, uncontrolable emotionally handicaped children I have come accross. Many on hard drugs, street or otherwise. Scary.

41. Madman in the Marketplace - 25 January 2011

I hate to break it to him, but the Koreans had faster internet a long time ago.

“It’s why last year, we put in place consumer protections against hidden fees and penalties by credit card companies, and new rules to prevent another financial crisis. And it’s why we passed reform that finally prevents the health insurance industry from exploiting patients.”

Oh, GMAFB!No there are no HIDDEN fees — they have no reason to hide them! 30% interest– right out there where everyone can see it!

Consumer protections, my sweet ass.

mattes - 25 January 2011

Thank Biden.

Hey asshole — I’d settle for a govt. that doesn’t steal from me to settle OTHERS’ debts, especially when they’re paying themselves millions a year!
