In a pre-pimp for his own show Fox News Sunday, the disappointing Chris Wallace had a remarkably large heap of steaming Obama Blame to shovel in on Fox and Friends Weekend.

The Curvy Couch of Ick at Fox Noise urged him on and then proceeded to launch into their own non-truthiness and spin. Quelle surpreeze.

Video below, there's time to make a Bloody Mary - you're gonna' need it. We won't catch Wallace's own show until 2 p.m. EST, so watch this space. [As Maddow and GottaLaff say when wisely tipping us off.]

From Fox online, don your Wellies, further bloviation about both Iraq and the hallucinated lack of Feck. [Those feckers.]

The contrast between Friday’s press conference in London by British Prime Minister David Cameron and Thursday’s White House remarks by President Obama could not have been starker.

Mr. Cameron delivered a robust assessment of the scale of the Islamist threat to Great Britain and to the free world.

Well you know who was born swimming in feck … B Actor/Reagan and Dumbass DubDub-Dubbuyuh, that's who.

And how did that pair turn out for all of us normal folks? The poverty stricken and disappearing middle class sure need to be looked out by someone … these three excepted. (Nothing against Cameron, but he seems to have two full hands.

And I bet each had a section of their wardrobes dedicated to pristine tan summer wear.

Now the Rightie Putin love is almost implausible, but defying the plausible is part of their Fvx Platinum Denial Program.

Perhaps half-Governor Sarah Palin does spend a lot of time on her porch, cleaning long-guns in pumps.

Maureen Dowd, Back to The High Life Again?

Been posting about The Dowd for years … somehow giving her chance after chance has rarely born fruit.

Teh-Stupid-Hurts-Mah-Brain

She's as bitter as a wet cat, right now, and not afraid to show it.

From the New York Times.

FORE! Score? And seven trillion rounds ago, our forecaddies brought forth on this continent a new playground, conceived by Robert Trent Jones, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal when it comes to spending as much time on the links as possible — even when it seems totally inappropriate, like moments after making a solemn statement condemning the grisly murder of a 40-year-old American journalist beheaded by ISIL.

I know reporters didn’t get a chance to ask questions, but I had to bounce. I had a 1 p.m. tee time at Vineyard Golf Club with Alonzo Mourning and a part-owner of the Boston Celtics. Hillary and I agreed when we partied with Vernon Jordan up here, hanging out with celebrities and rich folks is fun.

Now we are engaged in a great civil divide in Ferguson, which does not even have a golf course, and that’s why I had a “logistical” issue with going there. We are testing whether that community, or any community so conceived and so dedicated, can long endure when the nation’s leader wants nothing more than to sink a birdie putt.

Seriously, Maureen?!

Bush cut more brush at his Ranch, and it was a bit farther away, clocking as many  vacay hours into Texas than Obama could ever aspire to.

Rick Perry, Governor Good Hair, Takes a Great Mug Shot

perrywaronwomenRick Perry found  his niche.

Being indicted -- finally -- at the gubernatorial level.

It's going around, not the best year for conservative governors. Still praying that Chris Christie's moment is close. November is right around the proverbial corner.

It is critical that we all get our derrieres to the Voting Booth, friends. It's positively likely we may see (and hear) that giant fall from Trenton.

Perry

Superb footage by Maddow, she's been all over Perry. Two takes.
 

 

Maddow is ah-mazing, on every story - she does background and employs a fact checker. Remember those?

Fascinating piece on Perry by Cleveland Online.

CLEVELAND, Ohio -- On paper, Texas Governor Rick Perry has been indicted by an Austin grand jury on two felony counts for coercion and abuse of official capacity. But in reality, Perry is being prosecuted for playing hardball politics and nothing more.

Perry's indictment stems from his response to Travis County District Attorney Rosemary Lehmberg pleading guilty to DUI charges in 2013. Perry, along with other Texas officials, demanded Lehmberg resign, declaring her unfit to continue serving as D.A. and head of the State's Public Integrity Unit. When Lehmberg refused, Perry used his line-item veto power to slash the funding of the Public Integrity Unit. Travis County is the county seat of the Texas Capitol. Perry and other elected officials have long sought to have the powers of the State Public Integrity Unit Transfered to the State Attorney General's office.

The real abuse of power here seems to be the special prosecutor seeking to indict Perry for demanding the resignation of a D.A. convicted of DUI and using his constitutional line-item veto powers.

If politicians like Perry are going to start being jailed for being politicians and using authorized powers, it's going to take a lot of Texas illegal aliens to help build all the new prisons that will be needed to house them all.

Now there's yer' sign. Will Perry Operatives and Sugah Daddy's jump ship like the rats they are? Wouldn't be very nice to have poor GreenPeace stuck with him.

Perry's own words:

Ick.

I didn't think they'd be finding this level of Regressive Righteousness so handily, and at the deep end of decades of political fencing.

A month that appeared to hold a 'wild, wild west' extravaganza with badder-ass arms and bullets, a lynch flash-mob, military tanks and then by gawd shared a little whiskey to Boot at the golf club to unwind for an impossibly short time.

Deal. Done.

But uh oh - the president handling some new and massive idjitry … Bill O'Reilly had to shut his luxe vacation down and lumber back home. To talk some more smack about President Barack Obama

BLO'Reilly had to leave his vacation manse and demand that his driver proceed to to step on it … wheels up!

Vindicated: Tons of banned chemical weapons destroyed. Chickenhawks won't care.

FacebookTwitterRedditDiggStumbleUponTumblrLinkedInPinterestEmailShare

KidVindicatedw208h271

There's an editorial in today's Los Angeles Times titled, "Destruction of Syrian chemical weapons shows the U.S. may know what it's doing after all." Wait. So President Obama did something-- dun dun dun-n!-- right? Vindicated, at last!

[I]t was a rare bit of good news to hear from the administration on Monday that the United States had "finished neutralizing" hundreds of tons of the most deadly chemical weapons belonging to the regime of President Bashar Assad of Syria. This was a milestone in the diplomatic process that began a year ago this week when the Assad government was accused of using sarin gas to kill more than 1,000 people in a rebel-held suburb near Damascus. [...]

Conservatives assailed the plan as naive and feckless, as a projection of American weakness; Obama's supporters called ita fulfillment of his campaign promise to negotiate with those who were willing to talk in good faith.[...]

[N]egotiation and diplomacy are a better alternative to what would otherwise have been airstrikes followed by likely civilian deaths and a worrisome creep toward war.

"How dare Obama stop and think before he bombs?" Of course, now that the president has succeeded in accomplishing a goal sans war, he had to ruin it all (yes, that was sarcasm) by being all presidential and making a statement about the ghastly beheading of journalist James Foley by those despicable, brutal ISIL animals (sincere apologies to animals) responsible for his execution.

That will mean only one thing: John McCain and his trusty sidekick Li'l Lindsey Graham will appear on every Sunday talk show and be given a platform to call out President Obama's feck and demand that we go to war.

Again. I don't claim to know what the answer is, but our endless wars in the Middle East sure didn't succeed in eradicating terrorism or spreading Exceptional American Democracy across the region. However, BushCo and their pride-and-joy illegal invasion of Iraq did succeed at one thing: Failure. Sending more young Americans into battle is not always the answer, Johnsey (McGraham?).

Here is a partial transcript of the president's remarks via WaPo. Way to rev up the chickenhawks, Pres. O (yes, that was also sarcasm):

Today, the entire world is appalled by the brutal murder of Jim Foley by the terrorist group, ISIL....

He was taken hostage nearly two years ago in Syria, and he was courageously reporting at the time on the conflict there. Jim was taken from us in an act of violence that shocked the conscience of the entire world....

Let’s be clear about ISIL. They have rampaged across cities and villages, killing innocent, unarmed civilians in cowardly acts of violence. They abduct women and children and subject them to torture and rape and slavery. They have murdered Muslims, both Sunni and Shia, by the thousands. They target Christians and religious minorities, driving them from their homes, murdering them when they can, for no other reason than they practice a different religion. They declare their ambition to commit genocide against an ancient people.

So ISIL speaks for no religion. Their victims are overwhelmingly Muslim, and no faith teaches people to massacre innocents. No just God would stand for what they did yesterday and what they do every single day. ISIL has no ideology of any value to human beings. Their ideology is bankrupt. They may claim, out of expediency, that they are at war with the United States or the West, but the fact is, they terrorize their neighbors and offer them nothing but an endless slavery to their empty vision and the collapse of any definition of civilized behavior...

The United States of America will continue to do what we must do to protect our people. We will be vigilant and we will be relentless. When people harm Americans, anywhere, we do what's necessary to see that justice is done....

From governments and peoples across the Middle East, there has to be a common effort to extract this cancer so that it does not spread. There has to be a clear rejection of these kind of nihilistic ideologies.

One thing we can all agree on is that a group like ISIL has no place in the 21st century.
