Tempus Fuggit

TIME Magazine does it again. Fairly unbalanced, of course. Any magazine that would hire Wonkette as Washington reporter can never be considered serious under any circumstances. It’s too bad they can’t hire really intelligent, honest, hard-hitting, incisive journalists like The Skipper ...

Time Magazine Rates Borat More Influential Than Bush
(SHORT NEWS) - 05/04/2007 12:47 PM

Time magazine has released their list of 100 most influential people across the globe and surprisingly, George W. Bush does not appear on it. Kazakhstan’s most derided “journalist” Borat, however, does make the cut.

It’s Official: Borat Is Better Than Bush
(METRO.CO.UK) - Thursday, May 3, 2007

One kissed his co-star’s bottom, claimed to enjoy sex with goats and made fools of lots of Americans. The other invades countries, controls the world’s biggest economy and holds the future of the globe in his hands.

But the character Borat – played by British comic Sacha Baron Cohen – is considered more influential than George Bush, according to experts.

Also more important than the US president is actor Leonardo Di Caprio, talk show host Rosie O’Donnell and supermodel Kate Moss – who all feature in Time magazine’s list of 100 people who shape the world.

Tempting Fate

The Houston Chronicle has a headline on the tornado destruction of Greensburg, Kansas entitled “Residents To Return To Tornado-Hit Town In Kansas”. The story goes on about the pioneer spirit and how folks are wandering back in and starting to pick up the pieces.

It really is a good story to read as the Mayor talks about rebuilding, the governor complains about the National Guard, folks are looking for pets and President Bush appeared to declare it a disaster area and promise immediate assistance. It really makes you feel good reading how these people are coming together to help each other and get on with life.

Then .... about three-fourths of the way down the page, we encounter the following paragraph ....

The Federal Emergency Management Agency was bringing in travel trailers to house some of the town’s residents. There was no indication when people would be able to move into the trailers because the area was choked with debris and the town had no clean water.

Now, what do we all know about tornados and trailers? Go ahead, take your time and see if you can recall the one rule of nature that never fails. Figured it out yet? Good, because I am really concerned about FEMA now. It seems we only thought that the brains at that agency were a few cans short of a six-pack. Now we have proof. They have effectively painted a bullseye on Greensburg, Kansas and thumbed their noses at the tornado gods ... who spend most of their time just looking for trailers.

Your government at work ....

Meet The New Face Of France. Nicolas Sarkozy.
Not A Socialist. Not Chirac. Thank you, France!

Sarkozy Takes French Presidency
(PARIS (BBC) - Sunday, 6 May 2007, 19:35 GMT 20:35 UK

Conservative Nicolas Sarkozy has won the hotly-contested French presidential election, according to projections made from partial results. Mr Sarkozy is estimated to have won 53% of the vote, compared with 47% for socialist Segolene Royal.

The turnout was the highest for more than two decades, at about 85%. Mr Sarkozy, 52, the son of a Hungarian immigrant, takes over from the 74-year-old Jacques Chirac, who has been in power for 12 years.

Thousands of his supporters in the Place de la Concorde burst into applause and wild cheering as the result came through. In his victory speech, Mr Sarkozy said he would be the president of all the French.

“I love France. I love France, just as one loves someone who is very close to one,” he told crowds of cheering supporters. “France has given me everything, and now it is my turn to render to France what France has given me.”

Mr Sarkozy said the US could count on France’s friendship, but called on Washington to take a lead in the fight against climate change. He also said he believed deeply in European integration, but appealed to France’s European partners to understand the importance of social protection. After he finished speaking at his party headquarters, jubilant supporters sang a rousing rendition of the French national anthem.

Working Horse

This race was one for the record books ... but not for the reasons you might think. Street Sense came all the way from the back of the pack in 19th place to slip and slide his way to the finish line a good length and a half ahead of the 2nd place horse. Amazing. Simply amazing.

Which is why I couldn’t help but laugh as jockey Calvin Borel peed all over himself, crowed to his buddies and waved to the crowd as if he had actually done something other than ride one of the finest working horses I’ve ever seen.

Street Sense, all covered in mud from running in the back of that pack for most of the race and displaying no emotion or tiredness at all, allowed the silly little human on his back to crow exultantly and wave to the crowd as he plodded back to the winner’s circle with absolutely no concern whatsoever for the crowd around him.

He didn’t have the flash or bravura of Barbaro or the intimidation factor of Secretariat but he had what he needed and that’s all that counts. Watching that working-man’s horse plod his methodical way back to pick up a wreath of roses and head for the barn was a great thing to watch as the Queen Of England and all the NBC talking heads patted the jockey on the back and applauded the owners.

Through it all I had the sense that if that horse could talk he would have been saying, “What’s all the fuss about? I did what I did and that’s it. Now let’s all belly up to the bar. Drinks (and oats) are on me!”

Some winners have real character. This horse is one of them.

YOUR ATTENTION PLEASE! The town of Greensburg, Kansas no longer exists after a 1/2 mile wide twister blew through, killing 9 and wiping out the entire town. The rest of us here in the Midwest aren’t out of the woods yet either. This major killer storm cell is hovering over the plains right now and headed East.

Saturday Silliness

Heaven Can Wait

Two 90 year old men, Moe and Joe, have been friends all of their lives.

When it’s clear that Joe is dying, Moe visits him every day. One day Moe says, “Joe, we both loved baseball all our lives, and we played minor league ball together for so many years. Please do me one favor, when you get to Heaven, somehow you must let me know if there’s baseball up there.”

Joe looks up at Moe from his death bed,” Moe, you’ve been my best friend for many years. If it’s at all possible, I’ll do this favor for you.

Shortly after that, Joe passes on.

At midnight a couple of nights later, Moe is awakened from a sound sleep by a blinding flash of white light and a voice calling out to him, “Moe--Moe.”

Who is it?, asks Moe sitting up suddenly. “Who is it?”

“Moe----it’s me, Joe.”

“You’re not Joe. Joe just died.”

“I’m telling you, it’s me, Joe,” insists the voice.

“Joe! Where are you?”

“In heaven”, replies Joe. “I have some really good news and a little bad news.”

“Tell me the good news first,” says Moe.

“The good news,” Joe says,” is that there’s baseball in heaven. Better yet, all of our old buddies who died before us are here, too. Better than that, we’re all young again. Better still, it’s always spring time and it never rains or snows. And best of all, we can play baseball all we want, and we never get tired.”

“That’s fantastic,” says Moe. “It’s beyond my wildest dreams!

So what could possibly be the bad news?”

“You’re pitching Tuesday.”

Weekend Eye Candy

imageimageToday is Kentucky Derby Day and the 133rd annual Run For The Roses at Churchill Downs. The Queen of England will be in attendance today as the best 3-year-olds begin the race for the Triple Crown. Post time will be at 6:04pm EDT and coverage will begin at 4:30pm EDT on NBC.

In today’s race the favorite is Curlin at 7-2 odds, followed by Street Sense at 4-1 odds and Nobiz Like Shobiz and Circular Quay, both at 8-1 odds. The rest of the field are at long odds. Curlin has only had three starts but has blown away the field in each one. He’s good - but he may not be quite good enough for the Derby. I’m going to take a long shot this year and bet on Circular Quay to come from the outside and take it in the final furlongs after the favorites battle through the first turns. Don’t go by me though. I could be wrong.

In honor of this great race, we bring you Playboy’s Playmate Of The Year for 2007, Sara Jean Underwood, who loves horses. She is from Portland, Oregon and measures 32-24-31 and stands about 16 hands tall. According to her spec sheet she likes men who are shy, have facial hair and who like to get dirty and work with their hands. Oh, my!

Another School Massacre

It seems not a week goes by but we have another killing rampage at another American school. This week the killer was not a gun though. The local gang of firearms have all been cleared of this tragic crime after police found solid alibis for every pistol and rifle in town.

imageimageFinally, yesterday the perpetrator was apprehended and taken to jail. A subsequent lineup and identification by students found the number one suspect is a yellow Ticonderoga #2 pencil of average height, weight and a slightly balding eraser. (shown in mug shot at right after booking)

The pencil is currently being held without bail and several lawsuits have been filed by the Kansas state attorney general against the Ticonderoga pencil company for negligence in not providing any of the new “pencil locks” for the weapons. Lawmakers in Washington are once again looking at re-enacting the 1997 Assault Pencil Ban Act.

The National Pencil Association responded with a press release, saying “Pencils don’t kill people, pencils draw people.” In response, anti-pencil spokeswoman Flower DuPlessis of San Francisco stated “Oh yeah? What about that whole ‘pen is mightier than the sword’ thing?”

At the very least, this horrible incident will probably lead to increased waiting periods and psychiatric evaluation of purchasers from only licensed pencil dealers, according to Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, Explosives and Writing implements (BATFEW).

In the meantime, there will be a candlelight vigil at the Kansas school tonight for the victims. All students have had all pencils and pens appropriated by school authorities and replaced with black crayola crayons to complete their homework.

In a related story, sixth-grade boys evidently don’t have very good sense and will quite often do some very strange things either to get attention or just out of plain stupidity. That’s why they’re boys. It’s also why fathers of sixth-grade boys have belts and paddles as teaching aids for instructing the little brats in proper pencil use.

Killing of 3 Ducks Alarms Kansas School
WICHITA, Kan. (AP) - May 4, 2007, 12:50 PM EDT

imageimageA sixth-grader stabbed to death a mother duck and two ducklings that had nested near a school, distressing the other children and alarming officials who said the boy needs mental health treatment.

Students at Wilbur Middle School had named the mother duck Lucy and were monitoring her and her brood, making sure no one disturbed the nest in a grassy creek bed. Their mutilated bodies—stabbed with a pencil—were found this week.

An announcement over the public address system led the boy to admit the killings, officials said. They said he had also talked about the act to classmates and didn’t understand why it was wrong. The boy, whose name was not released, was suspended Wednesday. His return to the school will hinge on a hearing.

School officials were responding “the way we do whenever we believe that a child might be a risk to himself or others,” said Liz McGinness, who coordinates the district’s mental health crisis team.

She said his parents were being told they must seek outside mental health care. “We really don’t mince words on this,” she said. “We know that animal cruelty is a very serious, significant behavior.”

No decision has been made on possible criminal charges. Killing mallard ducks is illegal this time of year, and even in hunting season, the way they were killed would be illegal, officials said.

Mark Rankin, assistant director of law enforcement for the Kansas Department of Wildlife and Parks, said the boy may not be charged because of his age. A hunting violation charge could bring an adult up to seven days in jail and a $250 fine, while animal cruelty carries up to a year in jail and $10,000 in fines, he said.

Kris Meckenstock said his seventh-grade son helped monitor the nest and “just can’t believe somebody could be so mean. By the same token, I think that kid obviously needs help,” Meckenstock added. “My thought is, we need to look a little bit further and find out why somebody would have those tendencies.” Wilbur students and staff held a ceremony Thursday “to share their grief for these animals,” McGinness said.

Losing Wars For Dhimmis

Let’s do a little backtracking on recent history here for a minute. Let’s see if we can define how to lose a war, help bring America to its knees, create ugly partisan divide in the nation, throw an entire country in the Middle East to the wolves and do it all in just twenty steps ....

(1) Saddam Hussein was a pain in the butt and was disrupting the entire region with war after war.

(2) He built a nuclear plant that the Israelis took out.

(3) He persisted in attempts to obtain more and deadlier weapons (also erferred to as WMD).

(4) He kicked UN inspectors out of Iraq further raising fears around the world that he was still hiding or procuring WMD’s.

(5) Joe Wilson is a colossal asshole and a Democratic Party stooge who tried to cover for Saddam.

(6) The President went to Congress and the United Nations and said “why don’t we take Saddam out of the picture before he makes any more trouble.”

(7) The UN hedged before finally halfway agreeing - because they knew it would dry up their oil-for-food scam that they had going with Saddam.

(8) Congress agreed with the President to authorize and fund the war to remove Saddam and clean up the cesspit in Iraq.

(9) The war was over in a few months and Democrats in Congress began to worry that Bush was too popular and successful.

(10) Democrats began whining about missing WMD’s to encourage hatred of Bush and divisiveness in the US.

(11) The NY TIMES and other liberal media outlets began a campaign to publicize secret war plans to aid the terrorists rushing to Iraq for a piece of the action while Democrats secretly cheered on the “insurgents” as friends and allies in the War On Bush.

(12) The United Nations set up shop in Baghdad and then ran away after the first bomb.

(13) Democrats in Congress repeatedly call Pentagon officials in for grilling sessions, publicly televised of course, to whine, complain and criticize the cleanup action in Iraq.

(14) Iraqis hold first free elections ever, electing a new Parliament and democratic leaders but the NY TIMES and the liberal media are too busy covering abuses at Abu Ghraib Prison to notice.

(15) Progress being made in Iraq as terrorists die by the hundreds and their leaders killed or captured and sent to Guantanamo for interrogation which is criticized by the liberal media, taken to the Supreme Court by Bush-bashers but reveals tons of information on the terrorists and their organization and future plans which is used to stop dozens of planned attacks around the world, according to CIA director Tenet - a Clinton appointee.

(16) Democrats nominate a lame, pitiful excuse for a human being and acknowledged gigolo to run against Bush in 2004 and voters sneer and laugh.

(17) Democrats go into panic mode and using every dirty, underhanded trick in the book to nudge an election their way in 2006 barely manage to recapture the House and Senate. The Watergate crew enviously watches the Donks go far beyond anything they ever thought of.

(18) Democrats immediately set about surrendering the war in Iraq, proposing cutting off funding for troops and setting a timetable so the enemy will know when we plan to run up the white flag and flee back home leaving the Iraqis to die at the hands of murdering thugs.

(19) Bush says “not so fast” and slaps veto on Democrats.

(20) Democrats repond by telling Bush that if he is going to be all “mean and naughty” that they are going to withdraw their authorization for the war just when things are starting to get better because they know success in Iraq means they will be hosed in the 2008 elections and forever after known as the Party of Treason, Lies, Back-Stabbing, anti-American bastards.

There. Does that about sum it up?

Clinton Proposes Vote to Reverse Authorizing War
WASHINGTON (NY TIMES) - May 4, 2007

imageimageSenator Hillary Rodham Clinton proposed Thursday that Congress repeal the authority it gave President Bush in 2002 to invade Iraq, injecting presidential politics into the Congressional debate over financing the war.

Mrs. Clinton’s proposal brings her full circle on Iraq — she supported the war measure five years ago — and it sharpens her own political positioning at a time when Democrats are vying to confront the White House.

“It is time to reverse the failed policies of President Bush and to end this war as soon as possible,” Mrs. Clinton said as she joined Senator Robert C. Byrd, Democrat of West Virginia, in calling for a vote to end the authority as of Oct. 11, the fifth anniversary of the original vote.

Her stance emerged just as Congressional leaders and the White House opened delicate negotiations over a new war-financing measure to replace the one that Mr. Bush vetoed Tuesday.

Even if Mrs. Clinton and Mr. Byrd succeed in their effort, it is not clear whether President Bush would have to withdraw troops, or if he could resist by claiming that Congress cannot withdraw its earlier authorization but instead has to deny money for the war to achieve that result.

The question could prompt a constitutional debate over war powers that only the federal courts could resolve. Mostly, Mrs. Clinton appeared to be trying to claim a new leadership position among the Democratic presidential candidates against the war in Iraq.

She supported the war early on, but she has turned into a staunch critic of the administration’s performance on Iraq. She has been saying that she granted Mr. Bush the authority to go to war based on intelligence reports at the time, but that the reports have since proved wrong.

Now, her advisers say, a vote to withdraw authorization would make plain to antiwar and liberal Democrats that she was repudiating her 2002 vote. The hope among her aides was that demands by antiwar voters for her to apologize for her vote would be rendered moot.

Mrs. Clinton’s vote for the original authorization has been a persistent problem in her presidential bid when contrasted with the positions of other Democratic contenders.

Former Senator John Edwards has repudiated his vote for the war. After Mr. Byrd and Mrs. Clinton announced their plan, Mr. Edwards quickly put out a statement urging Congress to focus on withdrawing troops and not revoking the 2002 authorization.

“Congress should stand its ground and not back down to him,” Mr. Edwards said. “They should send him the same bill he just vetoed, one that supports our troops, ends the war and brings them home.”

Mrs. Clinton pointedly noted that she voted in 2002 to put a one-year limit on Mr. Bush’s war authority, an effort led by Mr. Byrd that failed. Mr. Edwards had opposed that limit.

Senator Barack Obama of Illinois, who was not in Congress at the time of the vote, cites his consistent opposition to the war. Mr. Obama issued a statement on Thursday evening indicating that he would support the effort by Mrs. Clinton and Mr. Byrd.

Master Debaters

image
Larry Wright - The Detroit News


Last week, the Democrats had their first Presidential candidate debate in South Carolina, perhaps hoping to convince Southerners that they’re not all Yankee carpetbaggers out to lie for votes and never come back ...

ORANGEBURG, S.C. (WASHINGTON POST) - Even before the first Democratic presidential debate ended last night, the spin had begun. Advisers and allies to each of the candidates touted their guy’s (or gal’s) best moment while downplaying any perceived slip. Less publicly, they cast subtle aspersions on their opponents’ alleged gaffes.

The reality is that the presidential race is still largely an insider’s game at this point and for a casual observer last night there wasn’t a heck of a lot of difference between the candidates—with the notable exceptions of Rep. Dennis Kucinich (Ohio) and former Sen. Mike Gravel (Alaska). Most of the candidates lambasted President Bush over the war in Iraq while largely avoiding any direct confrontations with one another.

Then last night Republicans had their debate at the Reagan Library, hoping The Gipper’s Ghost would appear and make those naughty Democrats go away ...

SIMI VALLEY, California (Reuters) - Republican White House contenders offered strong support for the military effort in
Iraq but voiced qualms about the Bush administration’s management of the war during a quiet first debate on Thursday. The Republican debate at the California presidential library of conservative Republican hero Ronald Reagan produced few confrontations or memorable moments but exposed some differences among the 10 candidates on social issues like abortion.

Most of the candidates called for victory in Iraq, one week after Democratic presidential candidates in their first debate endorsed the war’s quick end. “We must win in Iraq. If we withdraw, there will be chaos, there will be genocide, and they will follow us home,” said Arizona Sen. John McCain, who has led the charge in support of the war and backs President George W. Bush’s plan to increase troop levels in Iraq.

Former New York Mayor Rudolph Giuliani, the leader of the Republican pack in national polls, said: “We should never retreat in the face of terrorism. Terrible mistake.” But some candidates raised doubts about the management of the war by Bush and his administration. McCain said the war was “badly managed for four years.”

Now, I’ll let Mike Reagan break it down and figure out where this bunch are headed as the 18-month long campaign for President begins in deadly earnest ... and believe me, Earnest is pretty deadly at this point. Just ask him.

Profiles in Cowardice
-- by Michael Reagan

image imageIf ever there was a revealing contrast between courage and wimpishness it is the behavior of the competing political parties in connection with the pre-primary debates now going on.

Most revealing was the way the Democrat presidential hopefuls arranged to hold their debates and the way the 2008 Republican candidates chose where to hold their debates.

As revealed in their willingness to see the United States defeated in Iraq, the Democrats also showed the white flag of surrender when faced with a terrifying debate hosted by the evil Fox News. They ran for cover.

The Democrats refused to participate if Fox is to be in charge of the debate and the coverage of the session, with Fox reporters questioning the candidates and moderating the session. After all, the last thing the Democrats want is a fair and balanced presentation, which is what Fox offers. They demand a rigged game.

According to MSNBC, “The first debate, which was to be co-sponsored by Fox and the Nevada Democratic party, had been set for this August but was canceled. Fox then teamed with the Congressional Black Caucus Political Education and Leadership Institute for a Sept. 23 debate that is still scheduled, even though John Edwards, Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton all said they won’t attend.”

That more or less leaves Dennis Kucinich and a couple of other hopeless hopefuls to face the lions in the Fox’s den next September. As my pal Ann Coulter put it, “The not-visibly-insane Democrats all claim they’ll get rough with the terrorists, but they can’t even face Brit Hume.

“In case you missed this profile in Democrat machismo, the Democratic presidential candidates are refusing to participate in a debate hosted by Fox News Channel because the hosts are ‘biased.’ But they’ll face down Mahmoud Ahmadinejad!”

And over at the Hot Air blog, it was noted that that this is a win-win situation for everyone, [except for both remaining Centrist Democrats]: “the Dems get to show how tough they are against an enemy who’s more their speed and Fox gets to tout itself as the network that frightens the left.”

The idea of facing Fox on live TV scares them silly and the Democrats, as is their usual practice, ran for cover. If they can’t dictate the rules of the game they won’t play. And Fox made it clear that they would make the rules, which is their right.

On the other hand, you have the Republicans who will be debating tonight at my father’s library in a contest run by MSNBC and moderated by none other than Chris Matthews.

Think about it – the Democrats run away from a fair and balanced Fox-sponsored debate while the Republicans have no problem agreeing to a debate moderated by the Bush-hating, anti-GOP Matthews, whose idea of balance is to tilt everything towards the Democrat side, and run by NBC, the most liberal network. The GOP attitude: “Bring ‘em on,” contrasted with the Democrats’ cut-and-run strategy.

In this case, as in the case of the war in Iraq, the Republicans are standing up while the Democrats continue to display that large yellow streak that runs down their spines, even retreating in the face of what they regard as a deadly threat: an unbiased Fox network.

They always insist on having the umpires in their back pockets. If they are fair and unbiased the Democrats won’t play in their ballpark. As Dracula is said to cringe before a crucifix, the Democrats tremble in the face of facts.

The Republicans, however, are not only willing to fight an unpopular war in Iraq against the insurgents , but are also willing to face the hostility of the home-grown insurgency that has captured the Democrat party, the mainstream media, and liberal Chris Matthews and NBC.

Vilmar moved on to his own blog some time ago, and Allan ran this place alone until his sudden and unexpected death partway through 2006. We all miss him. A lot. Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere
It's been a long strange trip without you Skipper, but thanks for pointing us in the right direction and giving us a swift kick in the behind to get us going. Keep lookin' down on us, will ya? Thanks.

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
