Happy Tuesday.

Returning for one day only, it's DOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOM. (Really, it seems like we're doomed.)

Ahmadinejad, speaking in New York, said that Israel would be eliminated. The official U.S. reply is that Ahmadinejad's statement is "disguthting, offenthive and outrageouth." Oh, yeah, that's gonna leave a mark. Ahmadinejad speaks to the UN tomorrow.

Guy Benson looks into the latest Politico poll -- you know, the one where they're trying to create the idea that Obama is pulling ahead -- and finds some unusual results: they've got Obama up 3% and yet Romney is ahead of him in six of seven issues. Also, it should be pointed out that Obama has been up by about 3% in RCP's average for months; that's not pulling ahead, that's status quo.

I'm not so concerned at trillion dollar a year deficits forever, high oil prices, stagnant economy, ZERO job growth, the rebirth of violent islamic extremism, or the other signs of ineffectual leadership.

17 A lot of factors are adding up to this being one of the most boring election seasons ever. On the one side you have a guy who seems intent on not knocking the status quo, and that really makes sense only if he's sure he's in the lead.

On the other side you have people whooping and hollering about the fact that the polls (highly skewed polls) show him not yet getting trounced. Which means he's getting trounced.

And then you have all the people complaining about the fact that the one guy is not complaining more, while at the same time wringing their hands over all the skewed polls that show the other guy isn't yet getting trounced.

I want to be entertained by all this, and you people are letting me down. Shame on you.

Posted by: trufff at September 25, 2012 07:22 AM (fQlRP)

31 Good morning, 'rons and 'ronettes. Apologies for the quickie story yesterday. Today looks like a little easier day, so let's discuss a bit of Hollywood history:

One of the many misconceptions about the silent era – and one that forms much of the plot of Singin’ In The Rain – is that its stars were all ruined when talking pictures came in, because none of them had good voices.

It’s true that a number of stars and minor actors didn’t make the transition, but in almost all cases it was due to factors beyond their control, such as the thick accents of Vilma Banky and Pola Negri, Marion Davies’ stutter or Jobyna Ralston‘s lisp. Other stars fell by the wayside simply because the public expected new actors for the new technology; sure, it might be great to hear Max Linder or Theda Bara talk, but since they’d been making movies for a long time, you already knew what to expect from them. How could they surprise you?

When the subject of lost careers comes up, though, invariably the example of John Gilbert is given. Gilbert was one of the greatest of the silent screen heartthrobs, second probably only to Valentino, and three of his most popular films, He Who Gets Slapped (with Lon Chaney), The Merry Widow (with Mae Murray) and The Big Parade (with Renée Adorée) can still be seen in regular broadcasts on TCM.

Gilbert’s career, it’s said, was ruined because his voice was a high, girlish squeak. Alternatively, it’s said that MGM mogul Louis B. Mayer, who hated Gilbert (though whether because the actor got the better of the studio in contract negotiations or because Gilbert once punched Mayer, isn’t clear), deliberately sabotaged his debut, speeding up the soundtrack to turn the great lover into a joke.

But the delicious actress Colleen Moore, who managed to make the transition to sound, knew the truth:

“John’s voice was fine – it was the same timbre as that of Ronald Colman or Dough Fairbanks, both of whom successfully made the transition from silents to sound. Metro put him into his first talking picture – it was called One Glorious Night – and when it was finished, they ran it in the projection room and all the executives, Mayer and Thalberg and the others, were pleased as punch. They stood around congratulating John – and themselves – on the triumphant proof that he’d conquered the microphone.

“Then they took his picture out and previewed it, and that’s when the audience betrayed John. You see, for years and years movie audiences had been accustomed to
watching romantic leading men as they made those ardent and passionate speeches to the heroines. But they’d never heard the words. Now on came John, and for the first time the audience heard him saying, “Darling, I love you – I love you,” and when they heard that, they began to giggle nervously and to titter, and then they laughed at him. And the executives misunderstood it. They assumed the people were laughing at his voice.

“That was it. The stories started going around about John’s high-pitched voice, and they ruined him. But just you watch
Queen Christina, that picture he finally got to make with Greta Garbo – she insisted they hire him – and you listen to John in the love scenes, and you’ll realize that all that gossip about him is absolutely false.”

And now it's off to grab a quick cup of tea and settle in to the daily grind. Hope you all have a wonderful day.

The point is not so much the salary, but the benefits. It's not like they can go get a job for only 6 months a year outside of football. No one would hire them for a 6 month gig in anything other than coaching so that they could get a job with health insurance.

The solution is for the league to jack their salary slightly and then purchase health, workman's comp and all the other fringes most people get.

After watching last night and about 3 BS games on Sunday, I for one would be happy to play. These refs suck

If I were Vick I wouldn't be buying any green bananas. Reid? He's probably gonna be safe. He's not the one dropping the football or tossing it to the other team every third play.

I know I'm a racist summabitch, because the Bible 0bama tells me so, but I wanted Vick to get a shot. But his time has come, and is now gone.

92 Sorry to be doing math this early, but let's say the refs work for a little over 6 months at say 30 weeks. That is on average $5000 a month with free travel and the best healthcare should they get injured while working or travelling. Yeah, I think they could afford an IRA and private health premiums for their families.

93 I noticed CBS does it's best concerned act every time somebody gets hit, especially quarterbacks. Give me a freakin' break (see what I did there)! It's football. Players are going to hit each other.

I'm not saying you have to go back to old school, where guys were punching, kicking and biting each other after the play was dead. You could make the most blatant attempts to injure into penalties, but if a guy's helmet hits the other guy's, that's not a penalty! That's football.

Sheesh...

Oh, and go back to the days of no instant replay, period. If the refs blew the call on the field, they blew the call on the field. No take-backs, no oopsies, no surrender.

I agree, but they want it all. That's where I part company with the refs. I'm sympathetic to their need of health insurance, but I also think they can just take the salary cut and have the league buy it for them. It would be cheaper for them overall if the league did that.

The refs want the benefits, but do not want to give up the salary base to do it. That's the sticking point.

For me right now, the season is over. It hasn't even been fun to watch football the last 3 weeks. It's like watching a high school game. I'd be willing to pay more just to get decent officiating, but that's not a majority position.

100 You'll note that my basic point still holds. Many (no, not all) of those jobs do not come with health insurance, and that's their point.

Oh yeah, I forgot that "health insurance paid for by someone else" is a human right. WTF.

You'll note that's still a laughable basic point. If they don't like that their full-time high-status white-collar job doesn't provide health insurance, they should go fix that instead of demanding their part-time job pick up the slack.

49 FoxSports has a commentary about the fucked up call last night. The commentator was whining that Goodell should just give in and get the regular refs back out there. I guess the players are saying the same thing as well. but I have a question...the refs make an average salary of $150K for around 6 months of work. I hate Goodell with the fury of a thousand suns, but why should the NFL give in when you have part time workers earning that much money?
Posted by: Samuel Adams at September 25, 2012 07:36 AM (ZOf1l)


The really big problem for the NFL is that every week the leverage for the refs gets stronger. That's why they went and asked for that ridiculous "Pay us for the weeks we didn't work" crap. Greedy stupid fucking union bastards. But then Roger Goodell is a tyranical idiot in the mold of Bloomberg so a pox on both their houses.

If you're making $150K for your part-time job, you can buy your own damned health insurance. And teachers get health insurance, doctors, naturally. If lawyers don't, they make way too much money anyway (cf. Sandra Fluke) so they can MORE than pay for their own.

154 Morning' morons. I am angry and disappointed this morning!

Yesterday was a special election in my town for one of five selectmen. The republican candidate is well liked and worked very hard to secure the seat, and many of us put a lot of work in on his behalf.

Despite being a special election and falling on a Monday, turnout here in town was a little more than double the state and federal primary two weeks ago- over 11%. We had our GOTV efforts in place for the day. In my opinion, our operation was superior to either of the others, and coupled with our party ID advantage we were confident.

Indeed, watching the voter count from the various precincts in town, we were pretty sure we were ahead all day long.

As it turns out, we lost it 51-49. Less than 40 votes separated the two candidates over 1300 votes.

The democrat, despite being known as a pain in the ass at town meetings, had some under the radar municipal union support. They pulled it out and beat our man.

And I'm angry about it.

So, fuck you, union machine. I guarandamntee that at every election going forward from dog catcher on up, I'll be utilizing every GOTV trick I know, including having a dedicated voter counter at every precinct and a phone room set up to make the calls to every goddamned voter on election day. I will personally drive the bus to the polls if I have to.

What we did wrong:

1) the campaign had us doing stand outs on election day. Visibility was not a problem. There were more yard signs for our guy than for any candidate at any level, our opponent, and Romney and Obama included.

2) we made one phone call to every good voter; we didn't do follow-ups and we didn't reach out to light-voting Rs or R-leaning unenrolleds.

3) we depended on machine counts for ballots rather than identifying individual voters who did and did not show up.

4) we had not GOTV mobilization on elections day- counters, runners, callers and drivers.

It was a shitty little town election, and because the campaign decided to go with regular republican shitty tactics, we have a shitty union hack as selectman instead of a responsible, well-liked and experienced conservative.


These were not my calls to make. But you can be damn sure that if they were, we wouldn't be rubbing our asses after a close that should never have happened.

176 So, if a receiver catches the ball and a defender is also cradling it, is not a reception?


I thought tie went to the receiver.


There's an interesting point to all this discussion about the refs blowing the calls, etc. It's my understanding that the replacement refs are college refs. This is really shining a spotlight on how different the rules are between college and pro football. I'm sure somewhere out there is a discussion about how that impacts that transition of quarterbacks from the college to the NFL. Yes, yes, it impacts all the players but the qb would be the most obvious. Just off the top of my head, think about clock management in an endgame situation. In college, you need to go for rapid successive first downs to keep stopping the clock. That doesn't happen in college. I wonder how that contributes to the perceived failure of the hot college qbs moving to the pros. I'm not saying it's an excuse, it's merely an aspect to this that seems to get glossed over.


As far as discussing the refs instead of Important Issues, discussing the refs makes me want to throw things at the wall, not myself into a volcano. I'll stick with talking about the refs.

They're not just college refs, although the ones from college are from Division II and lower, since Division I refs either didn't want to, or weren't allowed to officiate. (Not sure why they passed on it, they would have at least been a bit better) There are also Arena Football and Lingerie League refs.

184 (Reuters) - Electric car maker Tesla Motors Inc (TSLA) on Tuesday cut its forecast for 2012 revenue, citing a slower-than-expected rollout of its Model S sedan.

The company said in a regulatory filing that it now
expects full-year revenue in the range of $400 million to $440 million,
down from its prior outlook of $560 million to $600 million.

"We have methodically increased our Model S production
at a rate slower than we had earlier anticipated," the company said in
documents filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission.

187 Okay... it's time to make an out-and-proud right-leaning news service. I'm getting tired of having to play defense.

There are several news sites (usually small, niche sites) run by Conservatives that strive for "balance" and "objectivity." They try (I know, because I write for a couple of them, when I have the time and a good subject) to be as even-handed as possible. This is even true in their opinion pieces- albeit to a lesser extent.

I have not found one news site that has said, "We'll be objective and avoid spin when the Mainstream Press does the same," and then gone on actively to spin for Republicans. And I think it's time.

There are two sides to this contract dispute, and I tend to be predisposed to oppose any group that makes a pension requirement part of their initial contract demands.

I'll tell you one thing: when the regular refs DO come back, they'd better be damn near perfect. Otherwise whatever concessions are made to get them back on the field will have been too much, IMO. But they DO have to get back on the field, and soon; the games are getting way too out of hand with the substitute teachers on the field.

216 I'm not going to put all the pressure solely on Goodell and the owners to compromise

I'm not going to put any of the pressure on Goodell and the owners. Fuck the unions- all of them.

Let's say they put in as much prep time during the week and just before the season as the actual players (not completely unreasonable) that means they're working full-time for 6 months. Less than that, really, for most of them, because they don't need all those officiating crews during the postseason. For that, they're being paid $150,000. That's not exactly chump-change.

On top of that, I'm virtually certain the league already pays 100% of their expenses for games (travel, lodging, food). The league already has to provide worker's comp (that's state-by-state, but every state requires it, so whatever state in which the league is incorporated would set the specifics of that, I think), so that shouldn't be an issue.

So what they want is a pension. For what? They're not players- they're not getting their heads smashed every game. When they decide to retire, they should still be of sound mind an body. Not only that, but a long football (playing) career is 10 years or so. Sometimes longer for kickers and such, usually much shorter (I think I once heard the average for a non-starting lineman was something like 1.5 seasons). Many of those refs have been officiating for 15+ years in the NFL, and you know they didn't start as Professional refs.

I don't begrudge them one cent they can make. I do begrudge them trying to sabotage other people's jobs (and therefore livelihoods) by trying to torpedo the whole season. You don't like what the NFL is offering? Go get a different job. Good luck finding one that will pay you $150,000 for 6 months of work.

231 As soon as there's an issue with two sides, it is unrealistic to expect bias not to creep in.

Actually, that's my point, EoJ. Why even pretend not to be biased anymore. Start a news org that says, "A Conservative Perspective" and go from there.

Certainly reporting on actual events (a fire, a robbery, etc.) should be as free of fluff (and, therefore, bias) as possible, but all the other stuff- just admit a Conservative slant and move on with it.

He is considered armed and dangerous.

Officers located the tractor Ladd was operating at the minimum security prison abandoned.

261 FoxSports has a commentary about the fucked up call last night. The commentator was whining that Goodell should just give in and get the regular refs back out there. I guess the players are saying the same thing as well. but I have a question...the refs make an average salary of $150K for around 6 months of work. I hate Goodell with the fury of a thousand suns, but why should the NFL give in when you have part time workers earning that much money?

Its my 16 year old at the mall response. I want it, and since it isn't my money, why should I not have it? The analyst/announcers/players are not spending any of their own money on it....so sure, you go ahead and spend it. I hate Godell. But he is right, since one of the major sticking points is a pension.....for part time employees. A pension? You know what other part time employees have a pension....Illinois state legislators. And since 2/3rd of our state's pension funding is unfunded....yea, that worked out well.

Oh, and Packer fans.....sorry, if you do not want the game decided by the officials....do not put yourself in that position. Explain how wasting an entire half of football watching Seattle's front 4 treat Aaron Rodgers as a pinta was a good idea.

267 A convicted murderer who escaped from the Mississippi State Penitentiary has been caught in Macon, Georgia.

Michael Dowda, 48, was discovered missing at about 3 p.m. Saturday from a work detail with maintenance at the penitentiary.

Officials said he will now face more charges including escape.

Investigators said Dowda may have stolen two guns from the home of a corrections employee who lives on the prison grounds.

The escape has some people who live outside another state prison nervous.

"That's ridiculous because that's a state prison," resident Tangynikia Wiggins said. "(They) should have extra, extra security up there. Nobody should be able to escape from up there."

The league already has to provide worker's comp (that's state-by-state, but every state requires it, so whatever state in which the league is incorporated would set the specifics of that, I think), so that shouldn't be an issue.

The officials are given a per diem, which covers their expenses and allows them to make their own travel arrangements....which means that if you want, you can go the cheaper hotel and pocket the change, eat the cheaper meal, and pocket the change or keep your travel miles.

302 299 In a related poll, Justin Bieber is preferred over The Beatles by all of America, as long as you grossly oversample pre-teen girls.


And Harry Reid.

303 if they don't allow Gary Johnson
in the debates he will not watch them.
...because he's a Ron Paul nu...

chemjeff 278--yada yada yada

Angst is legitimate, however, when Mitt's not given his fair share of
network news broadcast messaging, or if Mitt were misrepresented.

Not surprised, given that you've never bothered studying Gary Johnson's own platform, let alone Ron Paul's. Boo, hiss libertarian Goldwater and early R-Reagan outmoded Taft Republicans who dare to bitterly cling to that inconvenient and outmoded, revolutionary US Constitution. Nah, better stick to augmenting for our own good Patriot Act, DHS and interventionist first "nation building" strike aggressive wars to destroy every sovereign nation state including our own. Constitutional Republic? Bill of Rights? pfft , get "real".

You perceive a threat by allowing the peon Gary Johnson voice in national debate. Yet, studying beyond propaganda does not pose a threat to the nation, only to those who insist a monopoly on idea and form, aka authoritarians. Consider trifecta, allowing the punching bag in for cover.

Most watching the R vs. D candidate gussied up WWW fixed match debates are getting drunk, high or fixed. Understandably, it is unpleasant to swallow shit while sober. Since I've spent 20 years listening to EVERYONE and have researched independently, the debates won't teach anything new, and won't entertain me, either. As if Mitt's impromptu responses while under attack from the hosts (Obama's One Voice) has a better chance than the warrior's '08 results had. Been there; done that.

Mitt wants to win? He has the money but evidently still lacks the votes. Either he needs to manipulate the count, or else actually get more voters. He knows all about salesmanship, yet he just can't connect to voters earning below $200K/year.

Becoming POTUS has been his life's goal since his dad's campaign. Being "presidential" to Mitt? Silencing opposition. Staying above the fray translates as ignoring those who just don't fit in to the big shot picture that no longer holds a place for the highly skilled American workers, including non-union artisans in right to work states. "Kiss those jobs goodbye. They are gone, and they'll NEVER come back." Romney '08.

Refusing to recognize that the $50-$80K/year income families are the median, not the $200-$250K/year whose support Mitt already has does Romney's chances no favor. It's Mitt's problem that he yet fails to connect with most people. "Trust Mitt" sells no differently than "Hope and Change" -- repackaged brand identity.

You think that it helps Mitt to win by flame throwing vs. Goldwater Republicans? Even as the libertarian-Republicans remain dedicated to vote (R) 2012, you burn libertarian-constitutional conservatives at the stake for heresy v. the neoconservative established futurism that coincidentally holds those US citizens earning below $200K/yr beneath contempt, tagged as "self made victims" who have no productive place to prosper beyond the realm of lip service in Mitt's world. Mitt was and remains as ever an authoritarian global corporatist. Mark Levin et al. screeched against corporatist Statism until Mitt got the GOP '12 ticket. Go figure. In the end, hope and change has the same trajectory as "trust" in a Rockefeller Neoconservative Republican. "assimilate"

I don't really care to study the political platforms of druggies and anti-semites.

305 I think I prefer the poll troll to the "Romney and his supporters hate the 99%!!" post.

Many people here who support Romney, willingly or grudgingly, are not rich. This is a site dedicated to conservatives--libertarian views are generally tolerated, but I won't be shamed for not sharing them.

Regarding debates don't matter, try expanding your search beyond the last twenty years--Mr. Carter might take issue with your assertion that nothing new comes from them.

Yes. So...don't play well enough to win... or you deserve to be robbed at the end?

lowandslow is correct. You are an Idiot...sorry, if you do not want to be called an idiot...don't put yourself in that position.

309 That would be because Romney is leading in the poll by 1.6%.

What are the odds on taking a majority of the Senate. I am getting begging mail from the Senate candidates to whom I sent money.

310 I may despise the liberal ABC radio news with the heat of a super nova but today at noon they were unintentionally funny. While interviewing a bunch of random people in the street about the election they broadcast some tard talking about how he was going to start watching the news when we get close to the election.

311 Teej and Bro Cavil:

I do believe that is what he is hoping for, and seeking our help in gaining custody.
Sadly, this incredible young man is functionally illiterate. But he can build a house like no ones business.

So it looks like paperwork and court systems are in our future.

I wish I could make these young people understand that their actions have major life altering consequences. I guess he knows that now. Sadly.
