And Happy Fucking New Year, too.
May 2010 be less of a shit sandwich than 2009.
From all of us at Fucking Conservatives - the best to you 3 who read us and yours this holiday season.

The key quote.
“Having extensive experience and qualifications in the field, Ms. Hanes was awarded the position based solely on her merit,” he said. “Since then she has excelled in her role. As well as giving Sen. Baucus 'Round The World' and doesn't mind the occasional 'Cleavland Steamer'.”
This might have been played with. A little.

Tiger Woods has the "right not to incriminate himself" and NOT talk to the police about his accident. He followed that simple directive and received this:
Tiger Woods will be cited for careless driving in a car crash outside his Orlando-area mansion, but will not face criminal charges, the Florida Highway Patrol said Tuesday.
Which was all the police could charge him by the evidence they had. It's $164 and 4 points. A misdemeanor moving violation. For Tiger, that's literally pocket (lint) money, and he's little risk for losing his license.
But what if he would have talked? What would have leaked out of the now public information of his statement, or his wife's?
Let's just say it's better left as speculative tabloid fodder than legal evidence, regardless of the truth - and his marriage is really none of our business, is it?
It's entirely conceivable that no matter what he may have said to the cops, they would have found something more with which to charge him, or his wife. And that's just the legal issues. What about the tabloids?
Smart, Tiger, fucking smart.
That's why this guy below is my fucking hero, just like Tiger.
This is not a Golf lesson, it's a life lesson.
Watch the whole fucking thing, and part 2.

This is not snooty elitism – it’s based on the perception that Mrs Palin’s track record is thin and that while she has real star quality her political prescriptions are vague. Sound familiar? That may have worked for Barack Obama in 2008 but Americans are likely to want much more substance next time around.
I believe this is an obstacle she may not be able to overcome by acting as a populist, virtual “backbencher”, as she is currently operating. I say this as a fan – I would vote for her without reservation and will defend her to the ends of the earth against the BS she gets every day.
I think she will be the right person at the wrong time.
A common observation of recent Presidential elections is that, in at least one crucial personality trait or important aspect, The People elect the polar opposite of the current President.
Ford – Carter: Insider – Outsider
Carter – Reagan: Sour defeatism – Sunny optimism.
Reagan – Bush(1): Idealist – Pragmatist.
Bush(1) – Clinton: Staid – Rambunctious.
Clinton – Bush(2): Undisciplined – Disciplined.
Bush(2) – Obama: Stubborn loyalty – “Under the bus”
I’m afraid that the current amateur hour is going to be that crucial aspect. The country won’t want to give a go to another politician with a thin resume (including sadly, her resignation of the Governorship) like the last, regardless of her policy positions and how good we think she would be.
Sorry, no "fuck" in this post. Oh, wait....

"The organization has a problem that it needs to deal with, with the Congress. I will say that current head of the organization, she has done a phenomenal job of getting out in front of it. I applaud her. I take her at her word that she wants to work to make sure that the bad apples are thrown out."

Half a decade or so back, I wrote: “It’s a good basic axiom that if you take a quart of ice-cream and a quart of dog feces and mix ’em together the result will taste more like the latter than the former. That’s the problem with the U.N.”
I think he's a bit wrong, it only takes a tablespoon or so to ruin the whole batch - but then again, it seems more like 8 parts dog shit to 2 parts ice cream at the UN nowadays. And that's why I like Ambassador Bolton - he sees it for the fly-infested pile of crap it is.
And yet, the President sidles up to the soda fountain, takes a big heaping spoonful, and calls it ambrosia.
Bullshit. Or Dog Shit, as it may be.

Today was apparently the United Nations roast of America and Israel. There was an all star line-up of featured speakers.
First up they went old school with the man with a plan if you wanted some shit blown up in the 80's. He took a little time off after Ronald Reagan dropped a fucking bomb on his pad. Don't kid yourself though, this guy still wants to party like its 1980, its Muammar Qaddaffi! How the fuck are we supposed to spell your name today Gaddafi? I don't want to say Muammar is still a terrorist but hey, did this guy ever, and I mean ever, apologize for the "infidels" he had killed? No, and why the fuck should he, right? What's that Moemer? You still hate America? You support Al Quaeda and wish Obama could be President forever? Well, don't we all? This guy still kills 'em after all these years. Ok Mohammar, time to go, no seriously, get off the fucking stage. Is that an F-14 I hear overhead?

I’m sure they are paid by their sponsoring groups and various government agencies based upon how many contracts they write. No contracts, no money.
Based upon reporting about their GOTV activities, ACORN itself pays it’s employees almost solely on a commission basis in actual practice, if not in policy. I recall that the registrars were threatened with entire loss of pay for not getting their quota, which led to the extreme and illegal measures their employees took to get those registrations. I would not be surprised if this were the case here, leading to a culture of “get the numbers, I don’t care how or what you have to do or say” sales. And if these poor schmucks fuck up and get caught, they cut them loose without a care and ACORN says “all fixed.”
If all that is true throughout the organization, there truly seems to be an “Animal Farm” culture there. They hook them in with these lofty goals espoused in their Core Principles, yet use those very principles to yoke them to the most depraved of practices they (very) vocally deplore. I wonder how many of them are looking at their leaders and realize they are living those ominous final words of that book:
“No question, now, what had happened to the faces of the pigs. The creatures outside looked from pig to man, and from man to pig, and from pig to man again; but already it was impossible to say which was which.”
Wait - Fox and Friends found one (courtesy of NEWSBUSTERS).

Those balls you see hanging off of the back of pickup trucks?
They cast the mold from this guy's sack.
Here’s what I have noticed from your coverage: You brought in the damage control crowd to FRAME the story. Before even airing our damning Baltimore video. You know your audience would turn on ACORN if you showed them the evidence. So instead you put your competitors in journalism in the crosshairs instead of airing a blockbuster report making massive waves elsewhere.
You even trotted out shameless Clinton era apologist Joe Conason to challenge the ETHICS of our expose. Unreal.
What about the ethics of those at ACORN caught on tape trying to help create a brothel featuring illegal immigrant age range 13-15 from El Salvador?
And he gets to dictate to CNN just what the fuck is up because he did exactly what they refuse to do - afflict the comfortable and comfort the afflicted.
This guy kicks ass - and our benevolent benefactor Stacy knows his 'ho.
Hoo fuckin' yah.

What the fuck? Does he think the rest of us work on HIS schedule?
We have a saying in the Navy, "If you're on time, you're late."
We know there are events that conspire to block the best plans of mice and men. We accommodate with the "five minute rule" - We'll wait five minutes, out of respect and understanding.
After that, it's "Fuck it, if it ain't important to you, it ain't important to me."
Why the hell did Congress stick around sitting on their hands? He scheduled that joint session, you'd think he would have the respect for the legislators to at least be on fucking time.
Compare to the previous President. I have it on very good authority that straying from schedule was the one thing that would irritate President Bush to no end. My source said, “When something went late, for any reason, it was the only time I ever saw him truly upset. He felt that the schedule wasn’t just important to him, but that he didn’t want to have people wasting their time waiting for him.”
This guy? Center of the universe - everything revolves around him. This was a petty power play of the basest sort - your schedule depends on his.
So Senators and Congressmen, how's his ass taste?

This afternoon, Smitty called to check in and I mentioned my little jest at Donald Douglas's expense about the Florida guy who lost his job because he married a woman who, in her professional career, is a porn star known as Jazella Moore. This led to a discussion of Donald's "Erin Andrews nude" Google-bomb stunt and the outraged reactions of such lady folk as Cassandra:
Don't get me wrong. I understand the impulse to look. We all have impulses -- often powerful ones -- that conflict with our values. What I don't understand is the cynical decision to repeatedly exploit someone else's misfortune . . .Well, the impulse to enhance one's blog traffic is surely powerful. It is generally agreed that Donald should not have linked this criminal peephole video. However, as I have tried to point out, if Donald is "repeatedly exploit[ing] someone else's misfortune," is he more guilty than CNN and Howard Kurtz?
This is not to engage in moral relativism, but rather to indicate a serious question: Why can the MSM "respectably" exploit tragedy -- e.g., the death of Princess Di -- and overcrowd the airwaves with ads for Cialis and Levitra and all manner of lurid programming, without any real criticism? And yet if an individual like Donald tries to grab a small slice of this commercialized concupiscence, he is condemned as a vile sub-human pervert. Do the stockholders and executives who earn money from CNN and other MSM behemoths ever have to face the kind of condemnation that Donald Douglas has recently endured?
Understand that I don't mean to defend what the professor did. I merely point out that he is being condemned primarily because he said, "Hey, look, I'm exploiting the prurient interest of porn-Googlers!" rather than adopting the kind of bogus "respectability" porture that leads to Greta Van Susteren standing on a tropical beach telling us about the tragic circumstances surrounding the disappearance of the innocent teenage blonde who was (it is insinuated, though never explicitly stated) viciously raped and forcibly sodomized before being brutally murdered and fed to the sharks.
"Nothing grabs an editor's eye like a good rape."To condemn only those who engage in exploitation that is purposefully transparent and self-conscious, you see, is to let off the hook all the respectable peddlers of what Thompson condemned as "hired bullshit."
-- Hunter S. Thompson, Hell's Angels
February is "sweeps months" in TV ratings, and a couple years ago, I saw an hour-long Fox News SPECIAL REPORT about the dangers encountered by college student during Spring Break in Daytona Beach, Cabo San Lucas and other resort locations.
Yes, indeed! Until I saw this SPECIAL REPORT, I had no idea what evil could befall beautiful coeds as they run around the beaches and bars, get sloppy drunk, in bikinis, in wet T-shirts and -- sometimes, as extensively documented by this fine team of investigative journalists from Fox News -- in nothing all.
Nice work, if you can get it, eh? While I don't pay much attention to journalism awards -- if the Pulitzer committee insists on overlooking me, I'll return the favor -- I would argue that this Fox News SPECIAL REPORT was one of the most brilliantly conceived projects in the history of television. Imagine the scene as the producer went to his boss to pitch his idea:
BOSS: You want to do what?Say what you will about the ethics of this project, but that producer certainly deserves some kind of award for moxie.
PRODUCER: Fly down to Daytona Beach with a camera crew during Spring Break and get a week's worth of footage of 19-year-old girls in bikinis guzzling draft beer and flashing their breasts.
BOSS: And you want me to pay you to do this?
Well, this background was not discussed with Smitty. Rather, we discussed Cassandra's thighs -- no, actually, what happened was that mention was made of that classic pinup of the lady whose garter-clad thigh lends a touch of enticing glamour to Villainous Company. Guys dig the stockings-and-garter theme, Cass -- don't go changing.
"Today, the Internet and DirecTV are normalizing everything, from group sex to bestiality to darker things that decency forbids mentioning. And as for pedophilia -- why, any erotic website worth its salt promises links to images of the 'barely legal,' 'young teen sluts,' and all the rest. Today, Nabokov's Humbert would need not be a tragic figure; instead, he could have spent his years ensconced in front of a glowing computer screen, with a thousand Lolitas for his delectation."We are grateful for Douthat's years of being so "ensconced." Certainly, it took intense research for a college student to develop such a sophisticated understanding of this baleful phenomenon. And as we discussed the attacks on Donald Douglas, the rationale of Rule 5 was defended by reference to Douthat's findings. This discussion I paraphrase from memory:
"What the fiddlesticks? It's just cheesecake. And it's the gosh-darned Internet, for crying out loud! Everybody's just one click away from all the dadgum porn they could ever want."Indeed, this is the shocking discovery made by Douthat -- and he went to Harvard, you know. Far be it from a mere blogger to attempt such research. But Cassandra is right about those powerful impulses. Some guys can't resist a redhead. Some guys can't resist a chick in black stockings.
Me? I can't resist a joke. So, while this post is certainly disqualified from competition in the Rule 5 BikiniFest, I'm thinking that if Ross Douthat is the sort of person who has a Google Alert for his own name, he's definitely ensconced now. Or he soon will be. Research, Ross, research! Oh, Smitty has picked the Monday winner! (We're sure Cassandra will approve.)

What I need, my dear friends, is some prayer. Yeah, I know, Effing Conservatives is a strange kind of venue to be asking for prayer, but I didn't want to put this on one of my more common blogging places. Stuff gets around, the Internet is a hard place to keep secrets, and Renaissance doesn't realize how important it is for me to have a trustworthy, confidential source on the Democratic side of this investigation.
"Investigative reporting" is kind of a misnomer, as if it involved something other than regular old-fashioned journalism. Basically, "investigative reporting" involves stuff that important officials don't want publicly known, secretly disclosed to the press by people who know about the stuff.
Nothing is more important to this kind of reporting than trust: The source has to know that the reporter will not (a) report anything that isn't ready to be reported yet, or (b) accidentally identify the source, who might be fired if his identity were discovered.
Sometimes, the source is leaking with permission of his boss, but it's still important to conceal specifically where it's coming from, in order to avoid unwanted consequences. It's easy enough for a conservative reporter to develop Republican sources, but developing a Democratic source . . . like I said, pray.
The reason I'm writing this is kind of as a memo to myself. If Operation Renaissance works out like I hope it will work out, it's going to be beautiful. However, budgetary considerations require that I ask my friends to hit the tip jar. Renaissance wants to go to lunch, and . . . well, in such a situation, a gentleman doesn't want to appear to be a cheapskate.
Charm can be a valuable resource, so if you're reading between the lines, hit the tip jar. And pray.

To paraphrase Carlin:
Our thrust is to prick holes in the stiff front erected by the debt dealers. We must keep mounting an offensive to penetrate any crack in their defenses. Let’s get on them. Let’s ram through a stiff tax law so it will be hard for them to get it up. It’ll be hard on us, but we can’t lick it by being soft!

Completely off-topic (well, as concerns the political aspect of this site, anyway), but seeing as this is my inaugural post, I reckon that gives me license.
For any fans of The Wire, this clip'll be familiar. For everyone else, watch and learn as it's proven beyond any reasonable doubt that fuck is a more versatile (and just plain better) word than even dude.
Ignore the one or two non-eff-words at the beginning of the video. From 25 seconds on, the scene is nothing but a fuck-fest (in vocabularic terms). This is the benchmark, conveying everything that needs be said through one simple, beautiful word.
And now, please go visit my site.

And then, there are the fuckin' Sanfords—worse, the not-so-fucking Sanfords—who should just go into sex counseling for crying out loud: I like a good Bible study group as much as the next girl, but on a certain D.H. Lawrence level, one has to strengthen the earthier sides of the marriage vow as well as exercising one's spiritual muscles. Less Bible, more Kegel. LIfe requires balance, kids: open your flies (with each other). And close both of your fucking traps.
Yeah, right: "I don't have sex with my husband any more, but I'm a fucking victim!" Good for you, for not being co-dependent. Now shut up.

To me, he sounds slightly fucking irritated.
Then they had some crap about celebrity deaths that was completely forgettable.
What's driving my post is the cretinous boot-licking about President Hopium's Iran policy. They trotted out some polls showing only about a third of Americans disapprove of our current study in spinelessness. Wow, did your oversampling butts make it across the Hudson, and ask any real Americans in flyover country?
The Flagrant, Unrelenting, Callous, Knowlege-free Ignoramus Named Gergen and and equally nauseating Candy Crowley got on there and tried to talk around the fact that the current administration demonstrates a fawning appreciation for dictatorial thugs, Iran in this case (but the pattern repeats for Venezuela, Honduras, North Korea, etc.) that borders on the...kinky. Crowley was saying words similar to "It's so hard to tell what's really going on in Iran, what with all of these pixelated photos..."
Had I a magic wand, how satisfying it would be to whisk your have-missed-a-meal-lately self off to Tehran, for some actual reporting. You know very well it's a war zone there, yet you sit back and wax loquacious about the sad ambiguities involved. Dis-effing-gusting, all of you hacks and sophists.

- Quadrupling the deficit.
- Nationalizing banks and car manufactures.
- The firing and smearing IG Walpin (as well as others).
- The Commander-In-Chief bowing to a Saudi King.
That's for starters.
With your attitude toward the President, do you wonder why the Republicans in Congress are is a super minority status? Many of your ideas from your campaign were not that different from that young, hip guy you were running against. Have the government buy back toxic mortgages? Barack was the Coca-Cola. You were the Diet Value-Rite Soda.
You can't figure out how to oppose the message of the Democrat Party? You deserve to be voted out on your ass and let someone else be elected into the Senate who can formulate a conservative message. What the fuck good are you if you can't figure out how to verbalize the damage Obama is doing to the country? You give speeches for a living, dammit. You have aides, paralegals and interns all at your beck and call in your office. With their collective think tank, they can't give you a 3 x 5 note card with a few bullet points on it as to the shitty job Obama is doing?
Whatever service you have done for the country while in the Navy is, at best, a wash by your disservice as a Congressman.

It must be a pretty fucking slow news day for you to choose to write a whole column about how our national anthem is pretty much unsingable (in your fucking opinion). I have never heard you sing the Star Spangled Banner. But I bet you mutter along as best you can. Can I sing all the high notes? Nope. Do I try? Yup. Every fucking time. It is the national anthem after all.
I suppose I should lay out some of my beefs with your column. First off, the only portion of the poem "The Star Spangled Banner" that is the national anthem is the first stanza. All the subsequent stanzas (including the penultimate verse you reference) are part of the poem but not part of the anthem. You apparently aren't up to speed on that one.
Secondly, the songs you suggest as possible replacements are, for the most part, whimpy tunes that lamely describe the physical beauty of our nation. This is not to say that our nation isn't physically beautiful. It most surely is. But pretty much every country in the world has a song (or two) about how beautiful their fucking country is. Why would we want to lump ourselves in with everyone else on the fucking planet?
Thirdly, the only vaugely acceptable song of the ones you mentioned as a replacement is the "Battle Hymn of the Republic." I was born and raised in Virginia. I love the Battle Hymn of the Republic. I wouldn't mind all three verses being made into the National Anthem.
Lastly, I realize you are a liberal guy and all... So I can understand why you don't like the military or religious overtones of the Star Spangled Banner (and Battle Hymn of the Republic). And furthermore, I suppose your liberalism (like President Obama's) is the driving force behind this crusade against the Star Spangled Banner. You want to make it easier for people. Just like many of your positions and policies that purport to make life "easier" they really are just making people fucking soft.
Riddle me this? Do you know why we sing the Star Spangled Banner? Because it is hard. And last time I checked real Americans do things not because they are easy; but because they hard.

Fred Malek, a heavyweight Republican fundraiser and kingmaker, has singled out former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney as the GOP’s leading contender in the early stages of the 2012 Republican presidential derby.Given that fucking Fred Malek backed The Fucking Loser, his endorsement is the kiss of death to Romney 2012, as far as I'm concerned. And notice at No. 5 on Fucking Fred's list his praise for "emerging GOP Senate candidates in blue states," including Charlie Fucking Crist.
In a largely unnoticed post to his blog late last week, Malek, a wealthy businessman who served as national finance co-chair of John McCain's 2008 presidential campaign, ranked Romney No. 1 on a list of influential Republicans "who might both lead our party back and who might be our nominee in 2012."
These idiot "heavyweight Republican kingmakers" couldn't buy a clue if you gave 'em a 50% discount.

While I'm not much into psychobabble, a strong masculine paternal influence is important to the development of any child.
Meghan grew up watching her dad suck off liberal dicks. One of her earlier influences was watching her dad choke on a big mouthful of Russ Feingold. Her dad also seemed to enjoy Ted Kennedy's throaty, whiskey flavor.
"I have a lot of respect for Sen. Specter," Meghan recently wrote in an article where she was unable to either swallow or spit out the obvious words "RINO no more."
Instead of criticizing poor Meghan, we should realize that she had no control over her environment as a child and we should (it's our civic duty) do what we can to help her out now that she's an adult.
In the spirit of social responsibility, I'm rendering my services to help poor Meghan out. I'm offering a weekend in my backwoods cabin to tutor Ms. McCain in the subject of real men. Out of respect for her busy schedule, this will be a total immersion course where we will begin by immediately tackling hardcore conservative issues.
Meghan sez that the GOP is clueless about sex. I'd like to see her put her money where her mouth is. Or her mouth where...
Meghan honey, just leave a comment or trackback below so we can start the process of setting up this date. Weekends are pretty good for me, but I can talk the boss into a couple of days off for a cause such as this. I can promise that you'll be walking away from the weekend a bit gingerly, but with a deeper appreciation of issues like the first and second amendments. I can promise that when you talk about "dick" in the future, your mind won't be on Cheney or the Log Cabin Boyz.
BTW, if you are really that into the gay thang, it shouldn't prove too difficult to have another couple of women available. If you plan on wearing a skirt on your next televised appearance, you may wish to bring a pair of kneepads, too. I'm sure your dad has plenty of extras on hand.
Erwin has also received national publicity for blaming Hurricane Katrina on the effing sins of folks living near the Gulf Coast. Erwin also initially co-sponsored Governor Riley's major tax increase plan.
The last time I checked, Jesus turned freaking water into wine, but Erwin seems to be hellbent on ensuring that no one in Alabama is able to enjoy some of God's more enjoyable creations.
When at war, one generally respects the enemy and treats him well in a P.O.W. camp. When Obama and the Dems try to lift my wallet, I get pissed. But it's their nature, and they proudly wear their Marxist uniforms.
When a so-called Republican tries to lift my wallet and steal my beer, I take special eff-words out of reserve to use on this lowest form of vermin. A tax-loving, beer-hating Republican is a traitor, similar to Benedict Arnold and Arlen Specter. The last time I checked, treason is still a shooting-squad offense.

For those conservatives who have issues swearing.
18Now in the morning as he returned into the city, he hungered.
19And when he saw a fig tree in the way, he came to it, and found nothing thereon, but leaves only, and said unto it, Let no fruit grow on thee henceforward for ever. And presently the fig tree withered away.
20And when the disciples saw it, they marvelled, saying, How soon is the fig tree withered away!
21Jesus answered and said unto them, Verily I say unto you, If ye have faith, and doubt not, ye shall not only do this which is done to the fig tree, but also if ye shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; it shall be done.
22And all things, whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer, believing, ye shall receive.
I tried not to parse the passage by taking it out of context. But I think it's pretty clear what happened. A time for everything under the sun.

Take this typical piece from the Times (UK) in which Franken's seating as the junior senator from Minnesota is an all but foregone conclusion.
According to Franken fellatrix Sarah Baxter it's going to happen soon:
Fuck you very much, Sarah. Over here in the colonies we'll just let the system run its fucking course.
A COMEDIAN who had a walk-on part in the Rutles film spoof of the Beatles is poised to deliver a 60-seat super-majority to the Democrats in the Senate as President Barack Obama consolidates his grip on the levers of power.
Al Franken, 57, a satirist turned Democrat politician, is expected to be proclaimed the winner of the protracted race for the US Senate in Minnesota, in time to give Obama a free hand to appoint a Supreme Court replacement for retiring Justice David Souter without fear of Republican blocking tactics.

[P]olitical science research indicates that there's a tremendous "gatekeeper" effect to the blogoshere, since by nature of "network" effects and hierarchies of prestige, blogging newcomers find tremendously high barriers to entry to a successful (and possibly materially lucrative) blogging career . . .These are related points. Three or four years ago, I read an article that said the blogosphere had ossified to the point that the early arrivals -- those who had locked in big readerships circa 2002-2003, when blogs were first becoming popular -- were destined to dominate forever. Thus, there no prospect of someone starting a blog in 2005 or 2006 and reaching the top.
Don't kid yourself that you're going to become the next Michelle Malkin after publishing a couple of week's worth of Blogspot essays; and don't expect to make a fortune anytime soon. I've been blogging for three years, and I still average less than 1000 hits a day. I get thousands of visitors on some days, but that's often because Michelle or Glenn Reynolds has thrown traffic my way. It takes a long time to get noticed, and that's often after you've networked and made connections. My sense is that someone who works hard and puts out consistently good content will develop a readership.
Well, "can't never could," as my father used to say. If you believe you can't reach the top, then you most certainly won't reach the top. But however high you aim, you risk demoralization if you become so impatient for big success that you aren't willing to take encouragement from small successes.
Five years ago, it seemed as if anyone could start a blog on Tuesday and land a book contract by Friday. That was never really the case, but it at least once seemed that blogging was an easy way to success. Now, everyone admits that success is difficult so, as the professor says, don't kid yourself. Still, persistence and a willingness to learn can still take you a long way. I've tried to focus on readership growth: Week-to-week, month-to-month, steadily increasing traffic.
Professor Douglas also quotes John Hawkins' article, "How to Become a Full Time Conservative Blogger/Columnist," which I highly recommend. Something that John Hawkins has pointed out elsewhere is the value of cross-posting. I now have cross-posting privileges at Right Wing News, AmSpecBlog, Taki's Magazine and the Hot Air Green Room. So that's five different blogs, counting this one (plus whatever other freelance writing, editing and consulting work I can scare up) and the value is that each of those blogs has a different readership. There are lots of online political forums where you can highlight your writing/blogging, and if you've got a few "blog buddies" who want to join you to create a group blog, that's another venue.
The value of "blog buddies" can't be overstated. If a newbie can find two or three small- to medium-sized bloggers with whom to share Rule 2 (reciprocal linkage) and communicate via e-mail, that's the basis of a small network that can then be expanded to reach a wider and wider readership. Also, take advantage of any possible opportunity to meet your fellow bloggers face-to-face offline. The fellowship of a real-world acquaintance helps ease the feeling of isolation that bloggers often have to deal with.

Today on my travels out into the District, I was reminded of the thing I hate most about summers in our nation's capital. Surprisingly, it's not tourists. I would have thought that was it.
It's these fucking "homeless" people. I don't even believe most of them are homeless. If you don't smell like urine and are dressed better than me, I don't believe that you're fucking homeless. And, even if you are, I don't care. Stop asking me for change.
Don't sit outside of a McDonalds that is hiring asking me for money. Walk your ass inside and fill out an application. I didn't work eight hours a day for five days out of the past seven so I can give you money for sitting outside a fast food joint and guilting me out of it.
Also, once I've ignored you or told you no, don't say "God bless you!" Fuck you! I know what you're doing. I'm sure it typically works. I don't owe you, though, and I'm not giving you shit. Get a real fucking job and leave me the fuck alone! I may not be able to stop the government from taking my money and giving it to undeserving people, but I can certainly stop you. You lazy, piece of shit, asshole.

It's only 6 fucking 5 in Virginia. Do you know how slow 6 fucking 5 feels after driving 85 in Wyoming (I was speeding there too, 75 is the limit)? It's like trying to run in a dream. Your legs are running but you are not getting anywhere. The limit is more reasonable in Michigan than in Virginia, 7 fucking 0. With almost impunity if you speed up to 75 (Until the end of the month when the highway patrol needs to fill their ticket quota).
Fuck you if you say 'unsafe in any speed'. I want to get where I'm going, fast. And fuck that 'journey, not the destination' bullshit. If I wanted a journey, I will take one when the time is right. Confucius never had to travel with little kids.

Well... UMD students have given a half-hearted cry of "Fuck you!" to the legislature. They showed a portion of the porn film at the heart of this matter in the student union. They had a panel discussion on the First Amendment and pornography.
Then the students attending the showing/rally/discussion decided to say fuck this and go and watch the NCAA championship game on TV.
Way to fucking go UMD students.

I know it sounds incredible, but even though "Obama warned Friday [it] would be a 'provocative' act", Li'l Kim launched his rocket anyway. Maybe if the president sent him a peace offering - say, a DVD of Pork Chop Hill - he could get Bouffant Boy to play nice. Of course, Obama would have to take time out from bashing America, but, all things considered, I think it would be a decent trade-off.
Fuck you very much.

Now, I get it. Roads and maintenance all cost money. And, to be honest, I don't have a problem with paying to use a roadway or bridge. What really pisses me off is that I am paying twice. The federal government is already stealing taxes from me to give to you for these infrastructure projects. Then, I have to pay you again at each booth?
Plus, most of them have doubled since the last time I took the ride (in July 08). And, finally, I have to fucking slow down and come to a complete stop to pay the moron in the booth who is so busy reading a newspaper they can't be bothered to offer me immediate assistance.
Considering that last part, isn't their some global warming argument to be made for getting rid of these booths all together? I mean, I paid more in tolls last night than I did for gas. Something isn't right, here.

Let me get this straight.
Rush Limbaugh is leaving NYC. Selling his condo, leaving his studio and relocating somewhere else. In the mean time, the people he employed at his condo, his studio and elsewhere are out of a job. Restaurants, and anyone else who depended on Rush as a customer are out that much money due to his lack of patronage. The multimillionaire is leaving town and taking his spending money with him.
And Jon Steward says “Finally”?
What an fucking douche.
Video clip from Hot Air because I don't watch The Fucking Daily Show.
Hundreds of ticket holding students are likely finding this out now and saying "Fuck."
Regardless of your stance on pornography, this seems to be a bit excessive on the part of the state Senate. Threatening to cut off funding for the offense of showing a porn movie on campus? Are they going to start sending auditors through the dorms to make sure no porns are being shown in dorm rooms? Are they going to monitor campus internet usage to make sure there is no porn being downloaded? It isn't like the movie was being paid for by the university - it was entirely financed through ticket sales. (Tickets paid for by students who wanted to see the show.)
Perhaps the Maryland Senate should lighten the fuck up.

I am not a “birth certificate truther”; I am perfectly willing to accept that Obama is a natural-born U.S. citizen. However, with respect to his thoughts and his philosophy and his worldview, he might as well have been born in Sweden or Venezuela or Chad. Never have I seen a president over whom the history – the reality - of America has washed to so little effect. To Obama, the United States is not a country with over 230 years of organic political development that, partly through trial and error and partly through adherence to right reason and the lessons of history, has created a society that is the envy of the world. It is just a great, blank blackboard on which he can chalk his sophomoric wish list.
Many still say, “Give him a chance.” The electorate gave him his chance more than four months ago, and in that short time he has squandered it almost irredeemably. The most charitable thing we can do – not only for our country’s sake, but for the president’s – is to criticize Obama relentlessly when he is wrong, in the hope that he will see the dangerous folly of his policies. And if he does not alter his course, then that criticism will lay the foundation for his ultimate removal at the ballot box.
I have quoted this line from Auberon Waugh before, but it bears repeating: “There are countless horrible things happening all over the country, and horrible people prospering but we must never allow them to disturb our equanimity or deflect us from our sacred duty to sabotage and annoy them whenever possible.” In this time of political insanity, that shall be our motto.
Basically, we're fucked like an NFL cheerleader who accidently wandered into a Hell's Angels convention. Like Andrew Sullivan after two nights in San Francisco. Like a Harvard graduate during his first week in prison.
We're so fucked, in other words, we're not going to be able walk tomorrow, and anybody who tells you different is a lying fuckwad.
Nate G., from PlanetRomney.org, doesn't seem to agree with me:
I think you should understand first what Mitt is saying. He is not in anyway saying that we should support radical anti-American and anti-Republican ideals. He is saying give credit when, and only when, it is due.
Did he not give thick criticism for Obama’s socialistic agendas? Did he not say previously that he hope that Obama’s liberal policies fail, only because they will be bad for America?
Should we be glad that Obama is seeing the light on Afganistan and is finally taking a hardline with Detroit? I think so, because its the right thing. Or should we want to him to continue to make the wrong decisions because we want him to fail because he’s a Democrat?
Essentially Mitt is saying that we need to separate the policy from the individual or political party. Is the policy good? If yes, than we should root for it. Should a good policy fail because it’s from a (bad) person? No. The policy is the most important. Well spoken by a true grown-up.
I would recommend listening to what he’s really saying instead of tell him to shut up.
Like I fucking care?
I didn't hear the fullness of what Romney had to say at the event. I can only go on what was reported. And, reportedly, he said we should praise Obama when he succeeds. There were no qualifiers reported that Romney thought we should only praise Obama when he succeeds at doing things we agree with. But, even if he did qualify the statement, I don't fucking care.
Fuck Mitt Romney and fuck Nate G.
And who the fuck is the "us" in Miller's opening line? The one that goes "Sarah Palin, God love her, never lets us down." What the fuck is up with that?
Of course I don't know what is worse... Miller's original question or some of the fucking replies it has elicited.
We are conservative bloggers who say, "fuck." Maybe we don't say "fuck" on our own blogs, because our families and people at our churches read that shit. But we don't think we're going to roast in hell for all eternity because occasionally we see something in the headlines that causes us to say, "What the fuck?" Nor do we believe we're totally fucked up just because we like to see some sweet C-cup rackage every once in a while.
We are The Conservatives Who Say Fuck, proudly so, and if you don't like it, fuck you.
