House Republicans Preparing Contempt Citation against Holder

Republicans prepare contempt citation against Eric Holder over Fast and Furious Like many Americans Dan Issa has had enough. Apparently Eric Holder thought he could play fast and loose in turning over documents subpoenaed by Congress. What he has sent, according to the CBS story are a lot of duplicate and heavily redacted documents. It will be interesting to see if he tries to contort this into an attack against "his people".

I'm Baaaaa-aaaaack

Been away for a while. I had thought that this blog had become one of those "Me too" blogs that was something of an echo chamber that let people know I agreed with whomever I happened to run across on a given day. No more. We have an important election coming up and I am not going to face another four years of Adnoid Hynkel, II having said nothing. Have a new look which I hope to be tweeking from time to time. I am, however, back!

Happy Thanksgiving

Y'all have a great day.
Since YouTube yanked the Red Green Thanksgiving Dinner video, here's one for something you might want to try on that turkey (no, not that weird uncle that won't go away)

It's My Award...

...and I can ba as capricious with it as I want. Well, I am about to present a special Captain Louis Renault award to the most deserving man on the face of the earth. The Father of the internet himself, Mr. Inconvenient Truth himself, Al Gore.

Seems that the former Senator from Tennessee stumbled upon an inconvenient truth of his own,, that those ethanol subsidies he pushed have contributed to a rise in food prices. Well, duh! Most sane people were trying to point this out during the debate on the legislation. Now, Prince Albert is saying that he is shocked, shocked to learn that food prices are going up because you take 41% of your corn out of the food supply.

So, Mr. Gore, in recognition for your lifetime achievment in corruption masked by phony cluelessness, this is for you:

Louis Renault Award 11/21/10... And the Winner is:

Charlie Rangel . But it was close this week, he had close competition from soon-to-be-former Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi. Now Pelosi has some style, I'll give her that. A huge percent of the sixty Hous seats that flipped were taken by making Nancy the issue. To her this was proof of her effective leadership.
What won it for Rangel was the fact that, barring expusion, he will still be on the committee that writes monetary policy for the country. After being caught violating numerous House ethics rules he showed up at the committe hearing asking for time to find a lawyer. Now, he had one which resigned. Then he stonewalled claiming he needed time to get another laywer. The hearing committee was not having any of that and declared he had offered no defense. When the full committee met for its recommendation he showed up using his years of service as a defense. Then for good measure he brought in John Lewis to argue that he knew nothing of the charges against Good-Time Charlie but he was important in the Civil Rights Movement.
While Pelosi was reduced to being a yap-yap dog with a title. Not to worry, San Fran Nan still has potential and may win yet. In the mean time, however, this is for you, Charlie:

Anthem of the Modern Man

Charles Krauthammer takes up the story of John Tyner who gained his fifteen minutes with just four words, "Don't touch my junk". This is one of Mr. Krauthammer's best columns ever, and considering how Charles has set the bar pretty high that is saying a lot!
Like fellow Sandlapper, Michael Graham, I hope his conclusion is correct.

Don't say I Didn't Warn You

Well, we all deep down knew they would do this after the election. But it is starting already, resurrection of the Dream Act, the Pay Check Fairness Act and the introduction of the food police and assorted other stuff.
Hopefully the losers won't have the stomach to have their names on this mess.

Just a Friendly Reminder

Yeah, the good guys took back the house a couple of Tuesdays ago. The problem is that the current Congress is still seated until after the first of the year and there is still a lot of damage that can be done with a like-minded POTUS.

Maybe "The One" Shouldn't Oughta Name Some Enemies Publicly

Sometimes it is better to be silent and be thought a fool than to open your mouth and be exposed as an Obama. Since He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Middle-Named seemed to think that declaring the Chief Justice of the US Supreme Court was a good idea he might have overlooked a few things. Not the least of which that any challenge to any of his initiatives might result in their being struck down on Constitutional issues. Even the swing vote on the High Court (Kennedy) has reportedly said he will not retire while Obama was in office. It's almost like they are spoiling for a fight.

Maybe they are and I agree with Red, White,Blue News' Rebel Rouser from Texas in saying it's about time.. It might be fun to watch this as it unfolds.

The First Weekly JRHOO Captain Louis Renault Award goes to:

Welcome to the first weekly presentation of the JRHOO Captain Louis Renault Award. For those of you scratching your head going, "The what?" I will give you a little background.
In the movie, Casablanca, Captain Renault was the pragmatic, quasi-corrupt but somewhat likable chief of police. Under pressure to do something he knew he shouldn't he concocted an absurd claim only to have that claim put to the lie almost immediately as seen in this clip:

This week's co recipients are Interior Secretary Ken Salazar, and Obama Shadow Government Czarina Carol Browner who after months of denying that they misrepresented the opinions that "peer-reviewed" their moratorium on offshore drilling, saw their lie crumble before their eyes with the report of the Interior Department Inspector General as detailed by Michelle Malkin. One caveat about the award, the recipients, like in this case Salazar and Browner, will not always be somewhat likable like Captain Renault. In fact, I don't see that ever happening.

SC Loses Some of its Purple Tinge

What a great day Tuesday was, my "congressman" (Pelosi lap dog was more like it), John Spratt was defeated leaving SC with only Democrat member of Congress, Jim "We''ll keep control of the House" Clyburn.

New look and other stuff

With the demise of I thought now would be a good time to change things around as well as getting rid of the blogrolling code from the blog. As I noticed the many of the links on my blogroll were now dead I left the ones I visit the most and will add and restore as time allows.
Some of you may be asking, "Why even mess with it if you never post?". Well, that is about to change. After a little under two years of He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Middle-Named's leadership I cannot remain silent any longer.

The Obama Jungen

It is bad enough that he has proposed a civilian security which he might as well have named Gestapo but now he has his own version of the Hitler Jungen

Were it not a chilling parallel to Hitler's rise to power (remember he was elected) this would be comical.

Musberger Turns Little League into Obama Love fest

While I was at lunch today the break room tv was on the Little League World Series. In the second inning Brent Musberger was talking about Hawaii's coach and how he almost did not make it to the LLWS had it not been for the indervention of guess who. That's right, He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Middle-Named himself. Until the end of that inning all he could talk about was how wonderful BHO was. Game? Good question, the kids were out there playing while we were hearing about Alfred E. Neuman's evil twin.

Leave Him Alone! Right Now! He Means It!

Remember this twit from the days of Britany Spears' meltdown? Well he's baaaaa-aaaack. Well not really. the folks at Slate redubbed the original in a way that captures the collective personality of Obama supporters. Enjoy.

"Let Them eat Cake, 2008 Style

You remember how the Congressional Democrats were against the gas tax holiday. Remember how they said the savings would not amount to much and keeping the gas prices artificially high might encourage conservation.

Apparently they have a change of heart: for themselves. According toDNC host's tax-free gas : Updates : The Rocky Mountain News, the planning committee for the upcoming convention was using city pumps to gas up their cars at market priced sans gas tax. That's right, the holier-than-thou Dems once again put themselves above the plebian masses.
They even tried to say the GOP was doing the same...Sorry, wrong again. According to the city of Minneapolis, no such arrangement exists.

By the way, the committee members have not yet paid for the gas they got before the plan was discovered and (surprise, surprise) ended

It's Official! Voldemort for President

When I read PJ's DUmmie FUnnies: No Mere Mortal May Say The Sacred Name Of Barack Obama I could not help but think of the now completed Harry Potter series. I once jokingly referred to Obama as He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Middle-Named. Now it seems the denizens of DU now view Obama the way the Death Eaters from the HP series viewed Voldemort, right down to the "How dare you speak his name" attitude. Perhaps the Death Eaters Democrats would do well to take a step back from this deification of the Man-Who-Apparently-Slept-In-Church-For-20-Years, rather than making him into He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named.

VoldeBama and Sir Edmund's Faux Namesake

Okay, first of all, I do not think that Barak Obama is an evil wizard. However, now that this recent flap over his middle name has reached the point that he has become He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Middle-Named I couldn't resist.

While keeping up with the whine-a-thon that has become the Democrat race for the presidential nomination, a couple of things are standing out to me that tell me the two left standing that really are not presidential material.

Hilary's constant droning how "everybody's being mean to me because I'm a woman" is proof-positive that she is not cut out to be a president. If she pulls that with her counterparts in other countries she will be laughed off the world stage. Anybody ever remember Maggie Thatcher pulling that? Anybody ever remember Maggie Thatcher getting her hubby to ride in and run interference for her? Nope, didn't think so.

Obama is a different matter. He is smooth and well spoken and his rhetoric sounds great on surface. Hence my problem with him, nobody is looking beyond the rhetoric at policy position. He makes people feel good. I don't doubt that he is a good man with good intentions, but misguided. I am also concerned that he too has too thin of a skin. I think it is ridiculous that we now cannot say his middle name. I don't care if his middle name is "Attila", I am more interested in what he is proposing. Making him into He-Who-Must-Be-Middle-Named is absolutely ridiculous. It is as ridiculous as opponents referring to him as Barak Housein Obama in hopes of scaring voters away from him. If he had renamed himself that after the fall of Sadam I could making it an issue. Since such is not the case, enough about his middle name. There are more substantial concerns about the man than this nonsense.
