Help Wanted: Hotheaded UN Ambassador

Every once in a while James Taranto at the WSJ’s Opinion Journal throws out one that literally tickles my funny bone. Here is his latest on the Bolton controversy and the Dems fight to stop him from being UN Ambassador because his manner is so “ascerbic” toward the UN ....

Pat Moynihan, Hothead

MediaMatters.org threw a fit last month: “Media Conservatives Misrepresent Moynihan to support Bolton Nomination.” According to MM, John Bolton, the U.N. ambassador-designate, is not similar enough to the late Pat Moynihan, who held that job during the Ford administration. Moynihan later wrote a book about his time at the U.N., “A Dangerous Place”, and here’s how a review in the Dec. 18, 1978, Time magazine began:

Daniel Patrick Moynihan was the most controversial and explosive U.S. ambassador ever appointed to the U.N. During eight stormy months in the post in 1975-76, he bruised so many feelings that a scandalized delegate said his colleagues were in “positive dread of his manners, his language and his abuse.” The delegates will not be any happier with the ex-ambassador’s account of his U.N. days.

If it’s another Moynihan we want, we’d better find someone who’s a real hothead. Any suggestions?

Uhhhhhhh, the name John Bolton does come to mind, don’t it ....?

Call me Heartless……

...... but this made me chuckle a little.

Imagine, a homeless widow with a sign pleading for money on the side of the road......with a website.....asking for donations.

I wonder why she doesn’t take PayPal?

Air America Needs Some Resuscitation

Brian Maloney has the scoop on the newest ratings.

Get ready for another round of excuses, as a fresh batch of radio ratings have been released tonight and things still don’t look pretty for Air America/liberal talk radio.

You remember Air America, right?  The supposed answer to the right-wing domination of all media. Bwaaaahahahaha

Wise Guys

Today there are fewer gangsters in Chicago. The Chicago Mob has been hit by the G-Men. You absolutely have to go read this story. Where else can you start your day reading about wise guys like: Anthony “the Ant” Spilotro, Joey “the Clown” Lombardo, and Frank “the German” Schweihs?

“Today the Outfit takes a hit,” said US Attorney Patrick Fitzgerald, referring to the branch once run by Al Capone.

All 14 suspects are charged with racketeering, which carries a maximum 20-year prison term.

Eleven are charged with conspiracy to murder, and other counts include extortion, illegal gambling, threats, violence, bribery, intimidation and controlling unions, dating back to 1969.

Al Capone would be so proud of his “heirs”. The Windy City seems to still be second only to New York and Las Vegas for mob activity. In a related story, I have the hots for Dr. Melfi, Tony Soprano’s Psychiatrist (played by Lorraine Bracco). Does anyone have her phone number? I need some therapy ....

Blog Alterations

I have just updated our blogroll, cleaned up a few blogs that no longer exist, added a few new ones and added a new feature - a small checkmark appears next to each blog that has been updated (new posts) within the last few hours. Browse these fine blogs and tell ‘em BMEWS sent ya.

A new background for the sidebar and logo have been finally decided upon after much experimentation, some of these experiments were quite ugly. I also added CNS News ticker to give you constantly updated news feeds. Problems with Internet Explorer not displaying some items properly have been resolved (as best I can).

Google Search feature now allows you to use the Google engine to search the site here as well as the entire web. Let me know what you think ....

The Snow In Ohi-OH

The wet, heavy snow snapped tree branches and power lines, leaving about 80,000 FirstEnergy customers in the Cleveland area without power Sunday. About 54,000 customers were still without power Monday, and some might have to wait until Tuesday to get electricity back. (AP Photo/Tony Dejak)

The Golden Phone

A man in Topeka, Kansas decided to write a book about churches around the country. He started by flying to San Francisco and began working east from there. Going to a very large church, he began taking photographs and making notes. He spotted a golden telephone on the vestibule wall and was intrigued with a sign, which read “Calls: $10,000 a minute.”

Seeking out the pastor, he asked about the phone and the sign The pastor answered that this golden phone is, in fact, a direct line to Heaven and if he pays the price he can talk directly to God. The man thanked the pastor and continued on his way.

As he continued to visit churches in Seattle, Tulsa, St. Louis, Chicago, Milwaukee, and around the United States, he found more phones, with the same sign, and the same answer from each pastor.

Finally, he arrived at a small church in Brady, Texas. Behold- he saw the usual golden telephone. But THIS time, the sign read: “Calls: 35 cents.” Fascinated, he asked to talk to the pastor, “Reverend, I have been in cities all across the country and in many churches I have found this golden telephone and have been told it is a direct line to Heaven and that I could talk to God, but in the other churches the cost was $10,000 a minute. Your sign reads only 35 cents a call. Why?”

(I love this part............................)

The pastor, smiling benignly, replied, “Son, you’re in Texas now......It’s a local call.”

Thanks to my buddy Robert

Peaceniks Punch Protesting (ex) Policewoman

You never can tell what the Peace-Loving Left tm will do at a peace protest, can you?

It started out as a typical Wednesday for Preckshot, a 49-year-old who stands about 5-foot-2 and has hearing aids in both ears. She was standing on her normal spot on Providence Road, holding her signs in support of American soldiers in Iraq and Afghanistan. For nearly four years now, this has been Preckshot’s life from about 4:15 to about 5:45 in the afternoon once a week.

Sounds like an upstanding woman to me.  Peacable, quiet, steadfast in her support fo the troops.

On this particular Wednesday - it was March 16 - her effort seemed to annoy a couple of the protesters. Not satisfied with their own peace protest, a pair of peaceniks grabbed their signs and made their way to Preckshot, who normally stands outside the Bloomers flower shop near Locust Street.

Annoyed peaceniks, who could ask for a more delightful group?  I bet they were coming over to congratulate her on her fortitude over the past four years.

“Two of the guys from the corner walked down with a big sign that read ‘End the occupation,’ “ she remembers. One of them started taking pictures of a Preckshot supporter across the street, she says. “At some point, the other guy starts coming toward me.”

For a diminutive woman, Preckshot can handle herself. She’s a former police officer, and she isn’t easily intimidated. Still, a young man coming at her waving a sign in her face seemed a little aggressive, particularly from somebody supposedly advocating peace.

The man stepped closer. She backed off a step. He shoved a sign in her face, and she backed off once again.

“Don’t touch me!” she told him.

Then, she says, he pushed her.

“He started taunting me and reached out and pushed on my shoulder,” Preckshot says. “Each time he pushed, it got a little harder. When I saw his hand come at me again, I grabbed it. I felt fearful.”

As Preckshot pushed the man’s hand away, “he slugged me right in the face,” she says.

Nope, the peacable peacenik was pushing and punching Preckshot the policewoman.  Of course, the other peacable peaceniks proceeded to pummel the pissant, right?

What does confound her, however, is why her weekly adversaries weren’t more helpful when police came to the scene.

After the incident, Preckshot went to a nearby gas station to call the police, and they quickly arrived to take statements.

None of the peace activists, however, would give up Allaire.

Typical.  Peace at any cost, especially if you can assault a woman wearing hearing aids and glasses simply holding a sign that offends your sensibilities.

That didn’t stop police from getting their man. A few days after the conflict, Preckshot and her husband, Geoff, were at the local military recruiting office on Broadway when the peaceniks marched by on their Palm Sunday protest. The Preckshots saw Allaire, holding the same “End the occupation” sign. Geoff snapped pictures of the alleged scofflaw while Allaire flipped his middle finger in his general direction. He called police, and they tracked Allaire down.

Good for them.  Now the cops can take his birkenstock-wearing self to the slammer.

Indian Twist on Selling the Brooklyn Bridge

Duh!

NEW DELHI (Reuters) - India’s intelligence department is investigating reports that a fraudster sold an American businessman the prime minister’s residence in the heart of New Delhi recently, a leading daily reported on Sunday.

The businessman forked out 35 million rupees for the house that was up for sale on a Web site as a “huge sprawling mansion in the heart of Lutyen’s Delhi with 24x7 running water and electricity”, the Hindustan Times said.

He soon received the title deed for the house and arrived in the Indian capital late in March to take possession of the house for an office he planned to set up only to discover he had been cheated.

We shouldn’t have stopped at the Rio Grande

Mexican response to the Minutemen.

TIJUANA – Some U.S. law enforcement officials weren’t amused with a cartoon published in Mexican newspapers this month depicting a reward of $10,000 for an FBI or DEA agent.

In the cartoon, a drug trafficker stands near the reward sign. He’s quoted as saying, “Let’s see what type of hide yields more belts.” The hide presumably refers to the skin of the agents.

New German WMD

I am glad that Hitler never developed these in WWII. I hope they don’t fall into the hands of Al Qaeda. Maybe they are becoming overheated from hot toad road sex?

BERLIN (AFP) - Hundreds of toads have met a bizarre and sinister end in Germany in recent days, it was reported: they exploded.

According to reports from animal welfare workers and veterinarians as many as a thousand of the amphibians have perished after their bodies swelled to bursting point and their entrails were propelled for up to a metre (three feet).

Global Warming?

batI live in the south.  By definition, anything lower than the Mason-Dixon line is “The South”.  Yesterday was April 24th, 32 days past the first day of Spring.  It snowed.  Not much, just a flurry, but snow nonetheless.

Looking at the thermometer, it’s currently 46 degrees.  Global warming my aching hemorrhoids.
