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.
