Happy Friday.

I haven't got any news stories for you this morning; let's see what Vic comes up with. Instead, how 'bout a song I can't stop dancing to? The NSFW music video was insanely popular in Europe six years ago, where the Godless heathens used to show it on TV during the daytime with an even racier version on at night. Apparently, it completely missed the U.S.

Have a great weekend.

It happens constantly. I don't know why they don't see this. I've been banging my head on the desk non-stop since Axelrod found a "woman" in his own building to accuse Cain of misconduct. Then we have dug up shit on Santorum, etc. I guess they figure that it worked so well on Palin---most on the right completely buy the left's manufactured story on her and don't even question it!

Posted by: toby928© Perrykrishna at February 24, 2012 07:46 AM (GTbGH)

34 The sheer repeated deep and unbelievable idiocy of the GOP can never be explained sufficiently unless and until you make the assumption that they don't want to win if winning means reducing the size and reach of government. As soon as you take as your premise that the GOP would rather lose and see government grow than to win and not grow government quite so much, then the GOP starts to make sense.
This is a big fucking deal. If the GOP gets the WH, they may have to give up on Obamacare and Dodd-Frank, among many many other things. The GOP have to stay focused on one goal: To make their voters believe they want to win, while really tanking the election. By any means necessary.

On that cheery note, I'm goin. So long!

50 The e-mail from the Obama campaign found the right target: Dave Hunt, lifelong Democrat from Upper Manhattan and owner of an Irish saloon, had contributed to President Obama’s 2008 victory drive.

Now, just in time for St. Patrick’s Day, barackobama.com was peddling “O’Bama” T-shirts, playing on the president’s wee trace of Irish blood and his joke on a visit to Ireland last year that he had “come home to find the apostrophe that we lost somewhere along the way.”

But Mr. Hunt, an owner of Coogan’s in Washington Heights, noted something wrong with the message on the T-shirt itself: below the “O’Bama” was a large four-leaf clover. The shamrock, symbol of Ireland, is a three-leaf clover.

I love that they didn't think to arrange those stores by state.

I didn't use Sears much. When we were first married, upteen zillion years ago, we tried using them to set up our first place, but their credit policy was crazy-stupid. We weren't able to get a decent credit line (even though we both had jobs and a major credit card) so it was impossible to buy appliances there.

Their women's clothing - and men's, frankly - blew chunks. Even Penneys is better.

But I will say that after some negative experiences with Best Buy, Lowes, Home Depot we did use them recently for a couple of big appliance purposes. Sears' selection was much better and delivery/set up went fine. I did pull a really obnoxious dinosaur sexist salesman the first time, but I just went back another day and got a young guy who was helpful.

So all in all, Sears seems about the same as the other big stores where you can get appliances to me.

I think he chose Party loyalty. In other words, he behaved like an incumbent GOP Senator.

He's not my guy, but I really don't think we should act surprised that he endorsed the (then GOP) senior senator from his home state.

Moreover, I still think it's possible that he did, in fact, extract a promise from Specter. Snarlin Arlen is a bucket of horse piss, so him denying it means zero in my book.

81 Solyndra -- Super Fund site

The company plans on paying hundreds of thousands of dollars to clean up its own property in Fremont, Calif., but a separate leased property in nearby Milpitas sits vacant with barrels of unknown chemicals and lead-contaminated equipment, attorneys for the landlord, iStarCTL I L.P., said in recent bankruptcy court filings.

The full extent of the potential environmental problem at the leased Solyndra facility remains unclear. Officials at iStar say in court papers that they were not given the keys to the premises until this month, though Solyndra stopped making its lease payments in September when it filed for bankruptcy protection in Delaware.“

There may be environmental, health and safety issues and regulatory violations at the premises based on the materials the debtor has left behind, which consist, in part, of open containers of unidentified chemical waste and lead processing machinery,” iStar attorney Karen Bifferato wrote in a recent court filing.

87 If you're basing your vote on my comments or any comments on a blog then you guys are more batshit crazy than I suspected.

I realize that all the anti Romney comments are void of snark and only list indisputable facts and that there are far less of these posts than there have been for other candidates.

Is that what you want to hear?

103 “Bonuses for going bankrupt.”

Having worked for a few companies who went out of business, I have to take a moment to explain, if not defend, the bonuses that are typical of a business going out.

When companies (50 employees and up), for whatever reason, decide to close their doors, their is much that needs to be done to complete the requirements of law.
While most employees are happy to try to forget and move on, some employees are needed to unwind the financial records and assets. Most of these folks would rather move on as well, as there is really no long term gain to staying on. Afterall, there aren't any meaningful prospects for advancement and an entry on your resume citing something like "euthanize dying business" really doesn't help you get your next job. That is where the bonuses come in.
The bonuses are there to motivate the demotivated.

108 OK, since I can't get at YouTube on this .mil network, I figured the NSFW music video would have to wait until I got home. But then I saw "Steve Winwood" and "aerobics classes", and I know EXACTLY which one you're talking about.
Eric Prydz' "Call On Me", featuring Aussie lovely Deanne Berry. First time I ever saw it was on a 60" plasma screen on a battalion TOC wall in Baghdad, 2005. Foreignmusic video channelswith their high standards for hot chicks were a command-acceptable semi-porn that skirted the more onerous clauses of CENTCOM General Order #1. We had a guy in Battalion Commo who wasgreat at music video editing, and he redid a version that's completely dude-free.
