Praying for the Teabaggers: Psalm 109:8

19 11 2009

Haven’t been blogging much, but this one got me so mad I had to hang at the office a bit late and fire this off:  Anyone who would be seen wearing a shirt citing the Bible in order to wish death on a United States President is neither Christian, nor American.  They’re slime.

We are reaching new levels of disgustingness with the Fright Wing.  A pox on the Republican leadership for their fear of speaking out to counter this kind of BS.  Blood will be on their hands if anything comes of this.

There’s a new slogan making its way onto car bumpers and across the Internet. It reads simply: “Pray for Obama: Psalm 109:8”

A nice sentiment?

Maybe not.

The psalm reads, “Let his days be few; and let another take his office.”

Presidential criticism through witty slogans is nothing new. Bumper stickers, t-shirts, and hats with “1/20/09” commemorated President Bush’s last day in office.

But the verse immediately following the psalm referenced is a bit more ominous: “Let his children be fatherless, and his wife a widow.”

FACT CHECK: Palin’s book goes rogue on some facts…

FACT CHECK: Palin’s book goes rogue on some facts – Yahoo! News.

Hmmm…  Put Palin’s and Blago’s books in a cage, two enter, one leaves.  I’m not sure how to call that one.

‘Mamas Don’t Let Your Babies Grow Up to Be Lawyers’ – Law Blog – WSJ.

This essay treats a legal education as an investment, and asks the question of whether, based on known costs and expected benefits, such investment should be undertaken. The inquiry will necessarily differ from one potential law student to another. But for three posited “typical students,” the investment is shown to be a bad one.

Yup, about what I would expect. A law degree is hardly the road to riches.

Want to be rich?

Finish college and go to a hedge fund and trade those arcane derivatives that nearly took down our economy.

Want to work in a system that protects individual rights and be derided as the cause of all society’s ills – oh, and have to bill 2000+ hours a year?

Go to law school and become a lawyer.  C’est la vie!  😉

Birther Lawsuit Witnesses: Orly Taitz Told Us To Lie.

Can we now put this nonsense behind us?

Nah, wait… first, let’s put this nutjob Taitz in jail for a bit, but then we close the book on this.  Deal?

Some things are just cool… :)

Bad Move – Mark Kirk Palinizes Himself

4 11 2009

Clout St: Senate candidate Mark Kirk sought Sarah Palin’s backing when she’s in town to appear on ‘Oprah Winfrey Show’.

Oooh… I don’t see this going over well for Mark Kirk.

After what Palin did in New York’s race in the 23rd (basically sticking her nose in and derailing the moderate Republican candidate’s efforts), and the general wariness in Illinois to far right conservative Republicans, Kirk was better to leave Palin out of his race.

Now, by his own doing, he’s given Giannoulias a tag line to frame Kirk’s move to the right.  Kirk stays moderate – or at least appears to remain where he’s been in the past – I think he wins Illinois.  That said, he runs to the fringe right, and the seat stays Democratic – even despite everything Illinois Dems have done to lose the seat (makes coffing noise that sounds like “Blago! Blago!”)
