You know that loon Glen Beck, he wants to dismantle the U.S. Department of Education.

Do away with it he says.

And you know what, I must be friggin’ crazy to.. I agree.

Cut their funding and let’em die in the vine.

As it is the 50 states send billions of dollars to the Feds only to have them return over 80% of it back from wince in came.

Why bother, screw them.

JibJab – 2008 in Review

Irony MeterIs it the water in Washington D.C. or the water in Sen, Harkin’s home state of Iowa that causes extreme dementia that manafests itself when near a microphone and members of the media?

I can’t answer the question posed, but one thing I do know, Harkin is a full-on nutcase, and no better example of that is in this piece of trash spoken during a conference call with Iowa reporters.

Republican presidential candidate John McCain’s family background as the son and grandson of admirals has given him a worldview shaped by the military, “and he has a hard time thinking beyond that,” Sen. Tom Harkin, D-Ia., said Friday.

“I think he’s trapped in that,” Harkin said in a conference call with Iowa reporters. “Everything is looked at from his life experiences, from always having been in the military, and I think that can be pretty dangerous.”

Harkin said that “it’s one thing to have been drafted and served, but another thing when you come from generations of military people and that’s just how you’re steeped, how you’ve learned, how you’ve grown up.”

I’m really confused here, just what is it the Democrats believe about the military?

During the Bush/Kerry campaign military service was of great import to the extent Kerry used his mostly phony record as a brickbat tossed at the “AWOL” Bush.

Al Gore, um excuse me, The Goracle as he’s now known used the same tactic against Bush. Military service was important, and Gore served in Vietnam while Bush just flew around in airplanes in the National Guard stateside.

So yea, I’m confused as to just what these nimrods at the head of the Party of Democrats think.

Not only that, in Harkin’s case, he’s now claiming military service, at least those that volunteer and those with long family histories of service are somehow “dangerous.” MeThinks Harkin needs to shut his piehole considering he at one time felt military service so important to lie has ass off about his record.

Harkin made a 1984 boast that he had flown F-4s and F-8s on combat air patrols and photo-reconnaissance support missions in Vietnam. Or was was combat sorties over Cuba when he corrected himself when challenged by Senator Berry Goldwater.

Harkin finally acknowledged that he had never seen combat — that his military experience consisted of ferrying damaged aircraft for repairs from Japan to the Philippines.

Now THAT’s dangerous, not that he’d give one wit in the midst of a political campaign pitting two flawed Dem. candidates against one Rep. flawed candidate. And if he can get his “side” into the WH it’s all for the “better.”

As it is for Harkin to go to the mat in full support of the Ethanol scam for his states corn growers that has contributed to the current food shortage chronicled nearly daily in the world’s media. You want dangerous Harkin, that’s it, all for the sake of expensive subsidies for shifting corn from the food chain for a use as a fuel source.

Harkin, you’re a despicable asshat. And DANGEROUS to boot.

Wonder if The ObamaMessiah can find out where Hoffa is buried?

Sen. Barack Obama won the endorsement of the Teamsters earlier this year after privately telling the union he supported ending the strict federal oversight imposed to root out corruption, according to officials from the union and the Obama campaign.

It’s an unusual stance for a presidential candidate. Policy makers have largely treated monitoring of the International Brotherhood of Teamsters as a legal matter left to the Justice Department since an independent review board was set up in 1992 to eliminate mob influence in the union.

Looking the other way seems to be The ObamaMessiah’s modis operandi.

20 years of “hear no evil, speak no evil, see no evil” while sitting in the Reverand Wright’s church pew and now we learn he is playing endorsement patty-cake with one of the historically corrupt organizations on the planet.

That’s some candidate the Dimocrats have!

As the video clearly shows The ObamaMessiah’s lunacy is hardly surprising when you’re IQ level fails to get you past the the staffers that vet contestants for Are You Smarter Than a Fifth Grader.

Instapundit reader Jeff Cauthen suggests: “Somebody should ask him to name all 114 US Senators.”

That about sums it up, he’s definitely a couple chickens short of a church picnic.

Miley CyrusWell, that’s one way to celebrate Earth Day, show off your green bra.

Never-mind you’re only 15 years of age.

Wonder what ever happened to the days of a philosophy of keeping her good Christian head on her shoulders? She must have cast that aside about the same time her panty pics made the interwebs.

Chevy MalibuIn “honor” of Earth Day I give you an example of what it has wrought on the general public.

The (mild) hybrid Chevrolet Malibu pictured left.

Handsome little devil isn’t it? Although it being Earth Day Eve and all I’d much prefer something in an “Earthy Tan,” or “Climate Change Chartreuse,” but I can work with what’s given to me.

There’s one slight problem, it’s a piece of shit thought up by someone who’s overdosed on the Kool-Aid “dr.” Albert Gore is selling.

Seems this little “gem” is only a “mild” hybrid, as GM calls it, for the simple fact it’s designed so it’s pathetic little four-cylinder combustion chambers shut down when the car is stopped.

Not stopped as in say, at the local Quicky-Mart to purchase the latest issue of “Save the Planet NOW” and “Rednecks in an Ecco-Friendly World.’

Stopped as in each and every time it stops in bumper-to-bumper traffic on the interstate heading to Barstow. So you lurch forward a few feet, stop, and the engine shuts down like your wife after seven years of marriage. (you 7 year guys get it doncha?)

Traffic moves, and as if by “magic” this little marvel to modern ecco-friendly ingenuity “promptly restarts the engine when the brake is released.”

So as not to be confused lets recap. Stop, engine shuts down. Traffic moves, brake is released and engine re-fires and you lurch forward all of 35 feet and stop. Engine shuts down. Again.

Wash, rinse and repeat… for the next 25 miles of stop-and-go traffic. (wonder if it has a fission powered starter motor to withstand this abuse for 100,000 miles!?)

And all this for a gain of exactly 2MPG at an extra cost of $1,800 over a non-hybrid four-cylinder Malibu.

The marketing jackhole that forced this piece of shit into the showrooms should be relegated to Dantes Seventh Level of Hell.

And BTW, have a happy earth day (lower case intentional)

Oh what he said:

The billionaire founder of Black Entertainment Television says Barack Obama would not be a leading presidential candidate if he were white and that the Illinois senator’s campaign has ‘a hair-trigger on anything racial.’

* * *
‘Geraldine Ferraro [was] right,’ [Bob] Johnson added. ‘The problem is, Geraldine Ferraro is white. This campaign has such a hair-trigger on anything racial it is almost impossible for anybody to say anything.’

Standby for the condemnation to… oh wait, that ain’t gonna happen.

At least not by the same crowd of asshats.

Lift Your Robes and Smile Judge!

Columbus, Ohio

Ohio Supreme Court Justice Alice Robie Resnick admitted to an Ohio Highway Patrol sergeant that she had indeed had something to drink before she was pulled over Monday afternoon for driving under the influence.

Indeed she did. Despite the qualifing and all too dismissive “something,” – she blew a 0.216 – more than twice the legal limit for driving while intoxicated.

“I’m hoping you show up 000,” Sergeant Stidham said as he prepared to give her the portable test, the results of which are not admissible in court.

“I won’t,” she said. “I won’t. I won’t. I did have something to drink. I don’t know if I had. . . .”

Sergeant Stidham: “How long ago was that, do you think?”
Justice Resnick: “I don’t know.”
Sergeant Stidham: “I mean, a couple of hours?”
Justice Resnick: “I’m just really upset.”

Later, after seeing the results, she said, “Well, I don’t believe that.”

Sergeant. Stidham: “You’re showing a 0.216.”
Justice Resnick: “My God.”
Sergeant Stidham: “That’s well over double what you’re allowed to have.”
Justice Resnick: “I can’t believe that. I don’t believe that test. Do you have another test that I can take?”

“Well yes there is” – the officer should have said – “it’s the one you take just after the female drunk tank in-proccessing officer says, ‘lift your robes and smile.'”

“I am tired,” she first told the sergeant. “I have a mother-in-law who’s 97 and has been in the hospital. I was taking care of her. I have a husband who is on dialysis, and I have got to get to Columbus. I have not been drinking, I will be very careful if you just let me go.”

You can almost sympathize with this poor woman, almost. But then she pulls the ultimate “it’s true, it’s true” moment by blaming the entire episode on some type of EVIIIL Karl Rovian plot: “I’m the only Democrat on the court, and you’re forcing me to retire.”

Yes, just like they forced you to suck down “something” til you were incoherently stupid.

H/T “Briney.”

Cross posted @ On the Third Hand.

UPDATE: Talk Left has noted this story and takes the predicable line, “This is being overblown. Give the woman some privacy. She wasn’t drinking on the bench.”

No she wasn’t, but there is a strong suspicion why she refused to take the mandated breath or blood test and lost her license for a year. She was drunk as a skunk on MD 20/20 and thought her “robes” would save the day. With no hard evidence she could plead no contest, walk away with no convection on the record and go about her daily business.

And to prove that some people actually reside in “outer space” (and that it is of the unintelligent variety) “TChris” provides this nugget of wisdom in the threads first comment.

“This is the most commonly committed crime and, MADD propoganda notwithstanding, should not be treated as a crime when the driver has not caused actual harm.”

Must be a lawyer and is familiar with the “no harm, no foul” defense. One note in the thread, that I frankly didn’t catch. The reported .216 she blew is wildly out of wack and a valid point of discussion.

As far as I’m concerned she hangs herself when she expresses disbelief in the field test: “I can’t believe that. I don’t believe that test. Do you have another test that I can take?”

Then refuses the court admissible test at the Cop Shop. Guilty, “do not pass go, do not collect $200 dollars, go directly to jail.”

UPDATE II: Joe Kelly (For the Sake of Argument) notes a Washington Times article that clears up the issue of her BAC obtained during the field test. She blew a 0.22%, three times the legal limit.

As a ten year old living in Detroit I remember well that day in January 1962 when high wire artist Mario Wallenda fell during a performance, (The family attended the previous days performance). The accident left him a paraplegic. Family patriarch Karl Wallenda’s son-in-law Richard Faughnan and nephew Dieter Schepp were killed in the collapse of their world famous pyramid. (View photos and QuickTime movie of the pyramid here)

In those days, even in a large city like Detroit, having the Shrine Circus in town was big news. It was very big news, international in scope, that family members were killed and Mario paralyzed.

With the exception of Karl Wallenda being killed at age 72 during a “Sky Walk” in San Juan, Puerto Rico in March, 1978 I hadn’t thought of the family or those days in 1962. Until today and this ABC News story. Not content with a life after retirement from a job in a contact lens lab Mario Wallenda wants to return to “the wire” on a two-wheeled electric “sky cycle.”

“I’m 64, and hopefully I have awhile,” Wallenda said recently, outside the modest home he built on land his father bought in the 1940s, when Sarasota was the epicenter of the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus. “I just can’t sit around the house and not do anything.”

Mario’s father once said “Being on a tightrope is living, everything else is waiting.” Obviously Mario feels the “waiting” is over. I certainly wish Mario well and does “have awhile” to pursue whatever endeavor he chooses. By the same token I believe Mario’s wife hits the nail squarely on the head, “I know why he wants to do it, but I think he’s nuts.”

For those interested here is the circus legacy of the Wallenda family that unbelievably began as far back as the 18th century and continues today.
