Pat Robertson= Superman?

I read an article courtesy of AmericaBlog, that points to a claim by Pat Robertson that his health shakes give him the ability to lift 2000 lbs. with his legs.

I know, I was thinking, "Big surprise, Pat Robertson is a lying sack of shit." Researching the story for myself, I found this image. Maybe he's not lying?

Thanks for the link Other Crap.

Neville Bush

I read a few days back an article (I can't remember where at this point) about how if Bush had proposed this option back before labeling them part of the Axis of Evil, North Korea may not have taken the drastic steps toward becoming a nuclear power.

Now we see the same thing happening in Iran. North Korea has so far been able to avoid any reprisals and is pretty much doing whatever it wishes because it can threaten allies with nuclear attack. Iran's government, clearly interested in self-preservation, can do no different. Add to it that it supplies Russia and China with a great deal of oil they desperately need for economic growth and I think it is virtually assured that Iran will have a bomb as soon as they figure out how. The US will be as powerless to stop it as it was with North Korea.

So, thanks to this President and his would be laughable, if not so catastrophic, foreign policy. Worst President EVER.

Bush's Immigration Speech

What makes me think that anything Bush attempts to do to close the border will look more like this?

Get Out of Jail, Free

As I eluded to below, I just can't see Karl Rove suffering from any kind of indictment that may or may not be headed his way. This guy has the ultimate Get Out of Jail Free Card. Removing him might actually help Mr. 29% at this point.

If you like the card, get the pdf here.

Rubber Stamp Congress

Thought I'd have some fun with 40's propaganda. Seemed fitting. The hires version is over here.

While I'm at it. I read about this story this morning with no surprise what-so-ever.

In other news:
Karl Rove is said to be 'unfazed' by the threat of indictment. Well duh. If there's a guy out there with a Get Out of Jail Free Card, it's him. Talk about knowing where the bones are buried.

Thank the Flyning Spaghetti Monster it's Friday.

Gonna try to keep it light today. I got in a huge arguement today with two former Navy guys about the President spying on everyone and their mothers. They thought it was just fine. I'm wondering what ideals we're supposedly fighting for. Life, liberty the pursuit of happiness? Democracy? Bullshit. Life, maybe. Liberty, no way. We'll embrase any third world dictator piece of shit if he's willing to sell us oil. Wouldn't want to be a woman in South Dakota. Or gay. Or a minority. Or in the path of the next hurricane.

What happened to keeping it light? That's what the links are for.

Otto Man turned me on to It is pretty cool. You can plug in artists are songs that you like and it will play back those and others that fit that style. You can then rate them, delete the ones you don't like as well as keep a record of all your favorites. On top of all that it's free.

I've had a lot of fun with this.

Daily Surf

Since I'm not much of a writer and I enjoy reading and discussing politics, news and points of interest, I’m thinking I’m just going to do round ups of interesting sites, stories and images I find while engaged in these pursuits from now on. Occasionally, I’ll be interspersing these finds with ideas and images of my own.

Prez [left] says he’s not trolling. Has millions of phone records of millions of innocent people for the purposes of examination by ultra-secret police, but he’s not trolling. Yeah, dance monkey.

As usual, norbizness has The Rights’ scatalogical critiques of The Left.

Look now. Pay later.

It strikes me that this could be made into somekind of allegory for the Bush Administration.

*Update- AmericaBlog has a transcript of the video Jack Cafferty skewering the president and the new phone record controversy. Crooks and Liars has the video.

Yet Another Fish Story

Why should he start telling the truth now?
AmericaBlog has the skinny.
