    Quote Of The Day July 11th, 2008

    Former UN Ambassador John Bolton on Barack Obama’s foreign policy:


    “The best you can say is that he’s grown incoherent as the days have gone by.”

    Where The Hell Is Matt? July 1st, 2008


    Where the Hell is Matt? (2008) from Matthew Harding on Vimeo

    The above video is the end result of a project by Matthew Harding who spent 14 months visiting 42 countries in order to produce “Where The Hell Is Matt?”, in which Harding performed an incredibly silly dance in various places around the world. He even managed to convince others to join in. It’s a fun little video that should give pause to a smile or two. And as far as I know, Matt’s out there somewhere…dancing.

    Out of curiosity, I found this one myself online.

    Obama’s Pseudo-Presidential Seal Illegal? [UPDATED] June 24th, 2008

    UPDATES BELOW

    Barack Obama's Pseudo-Presidential Seal

    Probably nothing will come from it, but the pseudo-Presidential Seal that Obama’s been using of late just might be illegal. To whit:

    18 USC Sec. 713 …
    (a) Whoever knowingly displays any printed or other likeness of the great seal of the United States, or of the seals of the President or the Vice President of the United States, or the seal of the United States Senate, or the seal of the United States House of Representatives, or the seal of the United States Congress, or any facsimile thereof, in, or in connection with, any advertisement, poster, circular, book, pamphlet, or other publication, public meeting, play, motion picture, telecast, or other production, or on any building, monument, or stationery, for the purpose of conveying, or in a manner reasonably calculated to convey, a false impression of sponsorship or approval by the Government of the United States or by any department, agency, or instrumentality thereof, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than six months, or both.

    (b) Whoever, except as authorized under regulations promulgated by the President and published in the Federal Register, knowingly manufactures, reproduces, sells, or purchases for resale, either separately or appended to any article manufactured or sold, any likeness of the seals of the President or Vice President, or any substantial part thereof, except for manufacture or sale of the article for the official use of the Government of the United States, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than six months, or both.

    Barack Obama's Pseudo-Presidential Seal

    Obama’s counterfeit Presidential seal is symbolic of his spurious persona, his pretense of having experience, and his disingenuous promises. It also symbolizes the fact that he also lacks originality.

    Maybe a more accurate and descriptive redesign should be this:

    In the interest of full disclosure, I did not design this Obama pseudo-pseudo-seal and apparently “celsus asinus” is pseudo-Latin for “arrogant ass” (using an online translator, apparently “arrogant” better translates to Latin as “timidus”).

    Or maybe THIS one is a more accurate and descriptive redesign:

    Maybe this one?…

    UPDATE: This morning (June 24, 2008), Headline News aired a goofy (her CNN bio page uses the word “quirky”) Jeanne Moos “man-on-the-street” package about the Obama pseudo-seal although the story is quite old at this point. IMHO, it just shows CNN Headline News (and CNN in general) is growing more irrelevant (and perhaps irreverent). Of course, Headline News spends a good chunk of each hour in blatant self-promotion thinly disguised as news which further lends itself as evidence of CNN Headline News’ growing irrelevancy. Slow news days, CNN? So slow that you’re recycling old stuff? Hot Air has more up-to-date info on Obama dropping the seal and his spin as to why he did so. So much hooplah from all sides on an issue that for me is a non-issue and a goofy one at that.

    Parody Ad In Response To Obama’s Patently Misleading Anti-McCain TV Ad Known As The “Not My Child” Ad June 22nd, 2008

    I imagine that unless you’ve been off-planet for the past couple of weeks, you are familiar with the Obama attack against John McCain known as the “Not My Child” ad. It’s quite misleading and disingenuous for it takes a particial quote from McCain, combines with the implication of an impending draft and the resulting material is quite dishonest. Seems to me that the Obama camp is trying to recreate the infamous, yet effective, LBJ “Daisy Petals/Nuclear Bomb” ad that was aired in the 60’s. Even though that ad aired only once, it proved to be effective in helping Johnson handily defeat Barry Goldwater.

    The parody ad shown above is entitled “Not My Wallet.” Definitely more honest and makes a better salient point about what Obama will bring to the table if he is elected POTUS.

    Reese’s Racist? June 21st, 2008

    White Reese's Peanut Butter Cups

    With many uber-liberals so desperate to find problems where none exist, I wonder if any of them have protested Reese’s for this. Just a humorous thought but does illustrate indirectly how absurd a lot of uber-liberals’ racism charges have been in recent years. Someone call Al $harpton and Je$$e Jack$on.

    PhotoHunt 111: Shoes May 24th, 2008

    PhotoHunt

    The latest PhotoHunt category from tnchick.com is “Shoes” which can be interpreted as one sees fit. This week, even though I tried tremendously, I just could not think outside the shoebox (kudos to my wife for that line), so I decided to just take a simple photo of my shoe tree.

    But…

    Due to the shape of my feet, about the only brand of shoes that fit me best and most consistently is New Balance which makes up the bulk of the shoes I own. With that said, as I took the photo of the shoe tree I noticed a lonely pair of shoes at the bottom of the shoe tree that I almost completely forgot. It was a pair that I purchased from a Converse outlet store almost 20 years ago in Lake Park, Georgia. I bought them because in my opinion they were the strangest pair of sneakers I have ever seen. They were in the very back of the store on the shelves marked “clearance” and were only $5.00 for the pair.

    So ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, cats and dogs, I present to you…

    THE ELMER FUDD CONVERSE SNEAKERS

    They actually fit and are comfortable. But the tops actually fold down and are held in place by two snaps. If you care to you can wear them with the tops up which come up to just below the knee. The outside is denim while the insides of the shoe are flannel. I’ve never seen any like this before and I’ve never seen anything like this since. I’ve only worn them a handful of times and only for halloween or costuming. So whaddya think?

    Another Hillary Clinton “Oopsie” Moment May 23rd, 2008

    …sponsored by Wet Wipes for those embarrassing oopsie moments in your pants.

    Hillary Clinton

    Hillary, in clear desperation, opened her mouth and firmly inserted her foot.

    While addressing the editorial board of the Sioux Falls Argus-Leader newspaper, she said:

    “My husband did not wrap up the nomination in 1992 until he won the California primary somewhere in the middle of June, right? We all remember Bobby Kennedy was assassinated in June in California. I don’t understand it.”

    So she has to be present just in case Barack ******* Obama gets shot? She is certainly becoming more and more desperate daily and that remark is one of the more inane (if not insane) she has made thus far. Don’t allow her to have a firearm and keep her away from sharp objects.

    Hillary Clinton
