Happy Monday.

Walter Russell Mead has a must-read post on the energy revolution and environmentalists. It is, as typical for Mead, brilliant.

The NYTimes' Andrew Rosenthal is not amused by the White House's clumsy attempt to put to rest the story of the Churchill bust: "I got some facts wrong, because I made the mistake of relying on a White House blog post by the communications director Dan Pfeiffer. . . . The White House’s handling of the issue was bumbling and amateurish. In other words, business as usual." Charles Krauthammer thinks an apology would be appropriate.

Some good poll results for Romney. After a month of Obama ads trashing him for Bain and after six months of media fixation on clown questions, e.g., Shamus, bullying, Mormonism: 48 percent of voters consider Romney the stronger leader, compared to 44 percent who favored Obama. Similarly, 47 percent of likely voters also said Romney most shares their values while 44 percent picked Obama. When asked which candidate voters considered more honest and trustworthy, 46 percent said Romney and 44 percent said Obama. The crosstabs are interesting (PDF).

According to the Daily Caller, a new book on the Obama Administration scheduled for release in August claims that Obama cancelled the UBL raid three times on the advice of Valerie Jarrett before finally making the gutsy call.

A new Gallup poll finds that voters' absolutely lowest priorities are taxing the wealthy and dealing with environmental problems. Voters want good job creation the most.

He really cracks me up sometimes. He'll tell you that you're focusing on one poll and ignoring the blizzard!!!111! of evidence that Obama is winning...and then he'll ignore all the polls that show Obama in the tank.

Or....my favorite...he'll tell you Rasmussen sucks and always has been an outlier in final results....until someone posts the research that proves otherwise.

17 From the article on polling:

"Even before Romney was the [de facto Republican] nominee, Obama’s
character and personality always polled better than his policies and
better than his performance..."

His performance must be worse than I suspected, given that earflaps has no character outside of what is written on his magic plastic 'prompter paddles, and has the personality of a sewer rat.

"performance"?- golf outings, fundraisers, and regularly saying moronic and embarrassing things for six solid months does not in any way shape or form denote "performance".

Yes, correct, after Walker won the recall Gerg just changed his handle and came roaring back. Not a hint of remorse. Of course he could be a paid troll but you would think Axelrod would hire a better class of assholes.

21 Is anyone else on Twitter getting this Christopher Zullo guy promoting his own tweets onto your timeline even if you've got him blocked? So far he's promoted such claims as:

"What has Obama accomplished? Ended War in Iraq, hunted down BinLaden,
saved GM, reformed immigration/wall street and created 4 million jobs"

"President Obama took office when unemployment was trending towards 11%.
Now it's near 8%. How's that failure again? The choice is clear."

"During their last 3 months George Bush and Republicans lost over 800,000
jobs. Since President Obama was elected 29 months of job growth."

And it goes on and on. Any idea how this guy's getting his tweets past a block?

No, being a shameless prick is what Axelrod is all about.

Carville too, now that I think about it.

Yes, I remember the famous Marquette poll that was going to doom Walker about 2 days before the election. Greg was here trumpeting it at 10 am. When it was released at 1 pm it was the exact opposite of what he was saying it was going to be.

Normally that would probably be the case, but there's never any "Retweeted by ___" tag. It always pops up in the timeline as a tweet by Christopher Zullo and it says "Promoted by Christopher Zullo". And then I check his followers list, filter for people I know, and it says I don't follow anyone who follows him.

His bio also says he founded some progressive PAC. I guess he uses his PAC funding to pay off Twitter to spread his word around, or something.

34 Good morning, Morons. Hope you all had a great weekend.

Gabe, it'll be interesting to see what the left comes up with next to throw at Romney. What have they got left? I only see four choices left, since the dog-eating retard wants to stay away from the economy at all costs:

Bush!
Romney's a rich bastard;
Mormons;
Racist!

The only one I can see getting any real MFM traction is Mormonism. I'm expecting a doubled-down emphasis on that in the next few weeks, to push the meme that, well, if Obama's not really an American because of Jeremiah Wright, then Mitt's not really an American because of Brigham Young.*

Anyway - during the grand age of Hollywood, you had the major studios such as MGM, Paramount and Warner Brothers, the second-tiers like Columbia and RKO and the "Poverty Row" studios which churned out B pictures, cheapo Westerns and serials. One such was Republic Studios, a collection of small independent producers who got together in the early 1930s. Shooting on the old Mack Sennett lot in Edendale, Republic made Gene Autry and Roy Rogers Westerns, country musicals and detective stories.

One of their producers was a man named Nat Levine, famous for his cheapness and ability to cut corners wherever possible. A story which became Hollywood legend concerned a 12-part serial in which the villian always wore a black hood. Levine hired a well-known character actor for the part - at least, that's what the actor thought. Levine, he found, had only hired him for one day of shooting; it was the final chapter in the series, when the villian is captured and his hood removed.

And that was that. For those key shots, the bewildered actor received one day's pay - and for that one day's pay, Levine had a box-office name for his serial.

Hope you all have a wonderful day.

*as a corollary to this, there's a poster over at Althouse who's completely bug-fuck crazy about Mormons, insisting that they're a child-raping cult who are going to throw us all into the chains of Mormon doctrine once Mitt's elected. Real what's the frequency, Kenneth? weapons-grade insanity.

35 The "Obama saved GM" meme could be a great campaign point for Romney. Does anyone doubt that GM's shareholders, bondholders, and employees would have been better served by bankruptcy than the current mess? Not to mention (ahem) the taxpayers.

45 Here's what I want to know about the Churchill bust: Did the Brits ask for it back after Obama was elected or did Obama say oh hey here have this back? Because either way doesn't really look all that great for Obama. Either the Brits didn't want Obama to have it, which is a very very polite bitchslap, or Obama was being a wee bitch about not having anything that icky Bush did.


It is hilarious to read that NYT guy still trying to carry water for Obama after being made to look like an idiot.

51 poll...which has our attention, Potus campaign or Olympics?

Hard to get into the Olympics via media post-results broadcasts...had to be there?

The Olympics are not about last time's athletes but what's happening NOW, and it would be great to see a race without commentators blahblahblah about the guy who isn't winning this time.

If the media would go figure, they'd be a lot more interesting and maybe worth watching whether covering the Olympics, or to the larger interest group of US viewers and likely voters combined, covering the Potus campaign. When pigs fly.

Comparing the Redskins to the inept Cubs is badly misplaced. The Cubs have been non-champions all my life while the Redskins won three Super Bowls with 3 different QBs under HOF Joe Gibbs. Even though they haven't fared well under Snyder's ownership, he's at least turned over the running of the team to real football people and the future is bright under Shanny and RG3.

72 #65 When I used to frequent Free Republic, back in 2008, there were a small but vocal group of anti-Mormons who sounded abut as sane as Westboro Baptist. I assumed at the time that they were stealth Huckabee supporters. Huckabee took a lot of support from Mitt in 2008 by slithering around the Bible Belt asking passive -aggressive questions about Mormonism in his patented preacher voice.

My position on Mormons is this: They have been in our country for over 100 years and have done nothing but build a state in the desert and expand their church. They do not bother anyone. The worst I can say about them is that they inflicted Donny and Marie on us. And on some of their tenets, like food storage, they look remarkably prescient, given the way food costs are going to rise.

grenade; or c) joining an OWS cell telling everyone "this is a scary
time to be a woman" because Teh Mutt won't let her have abortions or
force insurance to pay for her contraceptives.

(The grim little babe doesn't look like she and her "partner" would need contraceptives IYKWIMAITYD....)

They've been banging that garbate in northeast Ahia also; as if with the economy in the shitter and staying there people want to watch some whiny prune bitch about how she's afraid of her simple fatassed shadow. I think that long-faced skeezer could offer to give it away at a maximum security joint of sex addicts and they'd all be telling her to GTFO. Maybe she'd be better off volunteering to permanently STFU if we vote for the Indonesian.

If they were smart they would send the story to other blogs to post. Keep it moving around the interwebs.

78 Anti-Mormon bigotry seems to be acceptable to the MFM cocksuckers and their 'Coexist" bumperstickers on their POS electric cars. Fuck those turds; every Mormon I've met has been extremely polite and intelligent. I know that holds no sway for the fuckheads that cower in fear at "urban youths" and pretend they don't shit their pants at the prospect of having one show up at their doorstep; but it means something to those of us out in the real world.

80 President Barack Obama is backing a controversial campaign by progressives to regulate schools’ disciplinary actions so that members of major racial and ethnic groups are penalized at equal rates, regardless of individuals’ behavior.

His July 26 executive order established a government panel to promote “a positive school climate that does not rely on methods that result in disparate use of disciplinary tools.”

“African Americans lack equal access to highly effective teachers and principals, safe schools, and challenging college-preparatory classes, and they disproportionately experience school discipline,” said the order, titled “White House Initiative On Educational Excellence.”


OK, here's a thought, I admit that its totally radical but...maybe these kids get more detention because they misbehave more? Maybe?

Whoa! See?!?! I told you it was radical

I denounce myself.

81 Make no mistake about it, the Mormon cult poses a grave danger to our way of life. These fringe dwellers practice bizarre lifestyles that include such rituals as not taking drugs, financial responsibility, strong family values, service to the community and they have even been known to stockpile food and water in case of disaster. These nut jobs are actively under investigation by my DHS as are all domestic threats.

I used to shake my head at the MFM doting on every illiterate word coming out of Carville's ugly fucking mug. Jesus fucking Christ, it sounds like something a character out of a Harry Crews book would spew to illustrate being the product of multiple generations of incest and massive drug consumption during pregnancy. His "republican" wife is a real prize too; wearing makeup that a trashy hooker would say "Honey, putting it on with a trowel ain't cutting it." Serpent Head's true calling in life is being a spokesman for SEC football and leave being a fulltime asshole to Teh Forehead.

83 Couldn't believe it.

I made the mistake of asking the guy to back up his assertions, especially since I'm in Massachusetts and still manage to be able to live as a Catholic. His answer was that Massachusetts was broke specifically because of Romneycare, and that it had been designed to do that from the beginning. He also noted that Romney's church elders had "told him it was OK to say he supported abortion" while he ran for MAGOV.

Totally insane. Mormons are the new Jews.

Which reminds me of that great lyric from Tom Lehrer's song National Brotherhood Week:

Oh, the Catholics hate the Protestants,
And the Protestants hate the Catholics;
And the Hindus hate the Muslims,
And everybody hates the Jews!

85 Bark Obama's teevee ads here in MA are big on the "Mutt Romney hates wimmins!" angle.

Here in Illinois during the last Gov. election, they kept running adds about the Republican candidate who voted against abortion years ago. And the jackass Quinn the democrat just barely won. I can only imagine what they are going to run this year

So if Obama is half white, does that mean he's half racist?

That can't be right. I mean, he's married to a Klingon 'ferchrissakes.

96 @52 Dick Cheney is something else.

Sarah Palin came in and tried to salvage what was left of the GOP in 2008. She couldn't fix it by herself, and make no mistake, she was all alone in fighting the Democrats.

Dick Cheney should admit that the Bush Cheney legacy is Barack Hussein Obama and stick his criticism of Gov Palin up his ass.

And what are my priorities?

Increase taxes on the rich.
Increase taxes on the middle class.
Control all aspects of the economy, starting with healthcare.
Increase dependency on governemnent.
And my number one priority:
Control your lives.

The reason totalitarianism hasn't worked in the past is that it isn't total enough. North Korea still doesn't have control over the bark on their trees.

99 CHICAGO (CBS) – A mob of more than 20 teenagers
descended on a trendy Wicker Park shop on Saturday and made off with
more than $3,000 worth of jeans.

Most of the group flocked to an corner of the store right beneath a
security camera, and appeared to know exactly what they were looking
for: an exclusive, expensive brand of jeans called Nudie Jeans, which
average about $200 a pair.





These must be the Chicago values that Rahm was talking about

102 @ #44 - Justamom -

I always tell my players (3rd - 6th graders) that mommy is not responsible for their gear, and if they forget something, mommy will not be running laps, doing up-downs, and standing on the sidelines watching for them. They're football players, their football equipment is THEIR responsibility...

Of course 11/12 year-olds cannot drive themselves, so...

I hope your son has a great season!

103 "I got some facts wrong, because I made the mistake of relying on a
White House blog post by the communications director Dan Pfeiffer"

...

You took a Press Release from somone who has the job of lying to you to make his boss look good; and you did NO verification of what you were handed.

Like you always do... but this time the lie was too egregious for you to simply gloss over. But lets not pretend that your "journalism" wasn't at fault here.

You heard a story, got one side, published it as truth without validating any facts... and are surprised they didn't tell you the whole story? Shocked that they adjusted the truth to make their side look better?

Sorry, when your MO is to publish White House and DNC Press releases without verification I can't feel sympathy that this ended badly for you... maybe if you did your job next time you might have a different result?
