Mistrial For Lynndie England

Well, it looks like the Abu Ghraib crap will continue on and on and on and .... The judge just threw out England’s guilty plea and declared a mistrial, sending the jury packing ....

FORT HOOD, Texas - A military judge on Wednesday threw out Pfc. Lynndie England’s guilty plea to prisoner abuse at Abu Ghraib, saying he was not convinced that she knew her actions were wrong at the time.

Col. James Pohl entered a plea of not guilty for England to a charge of conspiring with Pvt. Charles Graner Jr. to maltreat detainees at the Baghdad-area prison.

The mistrial for the 22-year-old reservist, who appeared in some of the most notorious photographs from the 2003 abuse scandal, kicks the case back to the military equivalent of a grand jury proceeding.

The action came after Graner, the reputed ringleader of the abuse, testified as a defense witness at England’s sentencing hearing that pictures he took of England holding a naked prisoner on a leash at Abu Ghraib were meant to be used as a legitimate training aid for other guards.

Other photos showed England standing next to nude prisoners stacked in a pyramid and pointing at a prisoner’s genitals.

When England pleaded guilty Monday, she told the judge she knew that the pictures were being taken purely for the amusement of the guards.

Pohl said the two statements could not be reconciled.

“You can’t have a one-person conspiracy,” the judge said before he declared the mistrial and dismissed the sentencing jury.

Correction, judge. You can have a one-person conspiracy - it’s called Hillary Clinton. But I digress. This young lady deserves punishment for acting like an idiot, possibly an Article 15 at most. The whole reason for this trial is to satisfy the Liberals who latched onto the Abu Ghraib issue to attack the war in Iraq. England is just a pawn. A stupid pawn but a pawn, nevertheless.

Deep In The Heart Of Texas

DailyKos (a liberal bullshit blog if ever there was one) is reporting on the incident last night at the University of Texas where Ann Coulter’s speech and Q&A session with the students was interrupted by hecklers and radical asshats in the student body. You have to read the liberal version of what happened to really appreciate how arrogant and stupid these people are ....

So, we were a minority vocally enduring Coulter’s homophobic, racist, sexist, fundamentalist Christian brand of hatred--fascist propaganda by another name. We sat through every ducked question shouting for her to answer. We shook our heads, sighed, and externalized our consternation through various hand gestures and motions. We sarcastically laughed and gasped at every attempt she made to distort the question asked into something that painted the questioner as an incomprehensible, inaccurate idiot-there were three. We shouted back in anger at every question shrugged away with mere character asssassination-there were too many to count.

My blood boiled a bit. Less masochistic progressives had enough and stormed out at various times. Coulter herself threatened to leave on two occasions for all the heckling. One man was cut off at the microphone for denouncing Coulter’s McCarthyist bent. And, then, one of us had had enough.

It was in response to Coulter’s bizarre explanation that marriage was in place not to “make people happy,” but to further an outright incomprehensible notion of some type of patriarchal system that she wasn’t able to articulate very well (she mentioned something about men caring for women uber alles, but offered little more of substance) and eventually abandoned to get to her point that gay marriage is evil. It was after this that a question was posed “What about marriages where men just fuck their wife up the ass?”

Some in the audience laughed. Some quite probably rolled their eyes. I myself was a bit taken aback and left wondering if the questioner couldn’t have expressed himself differently before he sauntered away from the microphone.

And, then, I heard a cry: “Hey! What are you doing? Let him go!”

Go read the rest of this idiot’s story. Be sure to wear your official “Red State Tin Foil Hat” though or else you might experience a severe wave of nausea.

World’s Worst First Date

Thanks to my friend Wayne in Jakarta, Indonesia for this story.

We have all had bad dates… but this takes the cake. This just tells you how tough it is to be single nowadays.

This was on the “Tonight Show” with Jay Leno. Jay went into the audience to find the most embarrassing first date that a woman ever had.

The winner described her worst first date experience. There absolutely no question as to why her tale took the prize!

Marilyn said it was midwinter… snowing and quite cold… and the guy had taken her skiing to Lake Arrowhead It was a day trip (no overnight).

No, not Marilyn. They were strangers, after all, and truly had never met before. The outing was fun but relatively uneventful until they were headed home late that afternoon.

They were driving back down the mountain, when she gradually began to realize that she should not have had that extra latte.

They were about an hour away from anywhere with a rest room and in the middle of nowhere! Her companion suggested she try to hold it, which she did for awhile.

Unfortunately, because of the heavy snow and slow going, there came a point where she told him that he had better stop and let her pee beside the road, or it would be the front seat of his car.

They stopped and she quickly crawled out beside the car, yanked her pants down and started.

Unfortunately, in the deep snow she didn’t have good footing, so she let her butt rest against the rear fender to steady herself. Her companion stood on the side of the car watching for traffic and indeed was a real gentleman and refrained from peeking. All she could think about was the relief she felt despite the rather embarrassing nature of the situation.

Upon finishing however, she soon became aware of another sensation. As she bent to pull up her pants, the young lady discovered her buttocks were firmly glued against the car’s fender. Thoughts of tongues frozen to pump handles immediately came to mind as she attempted to disengage her flesh from the icy metal. It was quickly apparent that she had a brand new problem due to the extreme cold.

Horrified by her plight and yet aware of the humor she answered her date’s concerns about “what was taking so long” with a reply that indeed, she was “freezing her butt off and needed some assistance”! He came around the car as she tried to cover herself with her sweater and then, as she looked imploringly into his eyes, he burst out laughing.

She too, got the giggles and when they finally managed to compose themselves, they assessed her dilemma. Obviously, as hysterical as the situation was, they also were faced with a real problem. Both agreed it would take something hot to free her chilly cheeks from the grip of the icy metal! Thinking about what had gotten her into the predicament in the first place, both quickly realized that there was only one way to get her free. So, as she looked the other way, her first time date proceeded to unzip his pants and pee her butt off the fender.

As for the Tonight Show… she took the prize hands down… or perhaps that should be “pants down.”

And you thought your first date was embarrassing.

Jay Leno’s comment - - - - This gives a whole new meaning to being “pissed off”.

There Is Hope For Liberals After All

Medical scientists today announced they are working to figure out why some Liberals suddenly wake up one day and start making sense and joining the Conservative family. Research is ongoing to determine why this sudden shift in thinking occurs. Read the story for more ....

Lame Excuse Of The Day

Oh, please! In trial testimony yesterday a psychiatrist testified that Pfc. Lynndie England suffered from oxygen deprivation at birth and because of that had difficulty learning to read and also had a speech impediment. All of these physical deformities, of course, are why she posed for cameras at Abu Bhraib prison with Iraqi prisoners held naked on a leash. Surely you can all see the connection there, can’t you ....?

FORT HOOD, Texas May 3, 2005 — Defense lawyers sought leniency for Pfc. Lynndie England at a hearing Tuesday to determine her punishment in the Abu Ghraib prison abuse scandal, with a psychologist testifying that the reservist was oxygen-deprived at birth, speech impaired and had trouble learning to read.

West Virginia school psychologist Dr. Thomas Denne the first defense witness said England’s learning disabilities were identified when she was a kindergartner and though she made progress in school, she continued needing special help.

OK, I’ll buy the story about birth defects. I’ll even accept the fact that she may have been a little “off-balance” because of those deformities. What I won’t accept is this ....

WHY DID THE FREAKING ARMY ALLOW THIS WOMAN TO ENLIST IF HER “DEFECTS” WERE COMMON KNOWLEDGE SINCE CHILDHOOD?

Democrats Who Live In Glass Houses ….

Dummycraps currently salivating at the mouth, over the thought of being able to massacre Tom DeLay over allegations that lobbyists paid for his trips overseas are suddenly finding themselves in a similar situation. This is delicious, folks and it actually appears in a news story in the Washington Post ....

Democrats’ Travel Costs Linked to Lobbyist

By R. Jeffrey Smith
Washington Post Staff Writer
Wednesday, May 4, 2005; Page A01

Lobbyist Jack Abramoff paid at least a portion of the expenses for two Democratic members of Congress and two staff members to then-House Majority Whip Tom DeLay (R-Tex.) during a pair of trips in the mid-1990s to the Northern Mariana Islands, according to a former Abramoff secretary and travel records published on the Internet yesterday.

The payments represent two new instances in which lawmakers and staff members on overseas trips had their expenses initially covered by a registered lobbyist despite a blanket ban in congressional ethics rules on direct payments by lobbyists for travel-related expenses.

The two congressmen were James E. Clyburn (S.C.), now vice chairman of the House Democratic Caucus, and Bennie Thompson (Miss.), now the senior Democrat on the Homeland Security Committee. The aides to DeLay were Edwin A. Buckham, now a lobbyist for the Alexander Strategy Group, and Tony Rudy, now a member of Buckham’s lobbying firm.

In these instances, Abramoff was reimbursed by his law firm, Preston Gates Ellis. The island government, which had hired the law firm, eventually paid it back for the expenses incurred by Abramoff, according to a source close to the incidents, who spoke on the condition of anonymity. House ethics rules contain no exemption for payments by lobbyists that are later reimbursed by others.

. . . . . .

All three lawmakers have said in response to the disclosures that they had no way of knowing that Abramoff’s credit card was being used to pay for the trips. They said they believed that the charges were being incurred by nonprofit groups, as House rules permit.

Andrew Blum, Abramoff’s spokesman, declined to comment yesterday but has said that lobbyists traditionally travel with lawmakers on educational trips and that Abramoff is being singled out for actions that he called proper and common in Washington.

Oh, stop it! I’m dying here. I haven’t laughed this hard in decades. Today’s task for all of you is to watch the MSM and let’s count how many times (if any) this story appears. I’d guess it’ll be hushed up really damn fast. Correct me if I’m wrong though ....

Open Forum: The End Times

It is November, 2008. Hillary Rodham Clinton has just been elected President over Republican challenger Jeb Bush in a narrow, contested election that required a recount in two states, Washington and Illinois. What will you do? How will you react? Will you threaten to move to Canada or France? How do you think the Dummycraps will act? Will Babs Streisand finally shut up? Will Bill Clinton reside in the White House or become the new UN Ambassador? Leave your predictions in the comments and be sure to wash your hands before leaving. Now, let’s play “what if” ....

Geriatric Rock and Roll Update

Cream exists once more. Eric Clapton, Jack Bruce and Ginger Baker have reunited after more than 36 years apart. Clapton is still God. Bruce is Shiva and Baker is Buddha. I’ll bet they still rock.

I would upload “I Feel Free” for your listening pleasure, but the Expression Engine interface tells me that the file is too big.

A little help here Allan, oh omnipotent system administrator.

Update: I decided on ”Crossroads” instead. The link is on my own server and it is a little slow. It is about 4MB. Be patient.

Deadly Mexican Food

I heard this on Paul Harvey. I feel safer knowing that they have captured it.

CLOVIS, N.M. - A call about a possible weapon at a middle school prompted police to put armed officers on rooftops, close nearby streets and lock down the school. All over a giant burrito.

Someone called authorities Thursday after seeing a boy carrying something long and wrapped into Marshall Junior High.

The drama ended two hours later when the suspicious item was identified as a 30-inch burrito filled with steak, guacamole, lettuce, salsa and jalapenos and wrapped inside tin foil and a white T-shirt.

They Should Have Built a Huge Vaginasicle

First they imprison “Testaclese” and now this. Penises get no respect. This is breaking news from the Laramie Boomerang (yes that really is the name of a newspaper.)

Two Laramie men are facing obscenity charges for allegedly building a snow sculpture of a phallus in their front yard.

Brandon Arp, 20, and Aric Davenport, 19, were arraigned Friday in Albany County Circuit Court on charges of promoting obscenity. Both men pleaded not guilty and are free on a $1,000 bond.

I am sorry they didn’t have a picture along with the article.

Update: Frank found a picture. It is not the actual snow dick in question, but a resonable substitute, I think. This one seems to have been sculpted by a woman.

image

Update to the Update: Thanks to Iteki, I have received this information, that snow dicks are mounting a huge counter offensive.
