Oyster Roundup Half Portion

~Thick and fast they came at last… Today we’ll be dining light on a dainty half-portion of oysters – Dapper Dan, the Quitter, and a million dollar murder. Slurp ’em up! Dapper Dan and the Homeless Man, Part II Remember the homeless man protesting Mayor Dan Sullivan’s treatment of the homeless? It turns out that Johnathan Martin has a criminal record, and the Mayor is using that talking point to the press and right wing radio. “I try to limit my discussion with first-degree sex offenders,” he told reporters.(snip) Sullivan said, “I don’t think he properly represents the homeless issue…

Oyster Roundup – On Inbreeding, Moose Cheese, and GOP Muppets

~Thick and fast they came at last, and more, and more, and more!   Brilliant Public Relations from the Coal Industry So, a study comes out that was done in coal mining areas in West Virginia, where mountaintop removal threatens the health of residents, devastates ecosystems and leaves the “Mountain State” far less mountainous than it once was. The study says that women who live in coal mining areas have a greater risk of having children with birth defects. But industry lawyers say that it may not be the toxins associated with coal mining, it may be the INBREEDING. Wow….

Palin on the Presidency, Family, Her Film, and Beef Jerky Rage.

~Hail to the Chief Pinup Girl The Newsweek cover story on Sarah Palin and her agonizingly drawn out declaration of candidacy for the Presidency is here. The article spares no mercy, launching right out of the chute with Palin’s quote, “I believe that I can win a national election.” So, what then, is stopping her from simply declaring, and putting the ‘lamestream’ media out of its collective misery? “Family.” It’s allllll about the family. Yes that same family that Palin claimed were consulted about the VP nomination, and took a vote, which resulted in an overwhelming, “Go for it, Mom!”…

Palin Says “I Can Win.”

It appears as though Newsweek has yet another traumatic Sarah Palin cover ready to hit the stands. One, as you may recall had her in a calendar girl pose, in running shorts demonstrating her mastery of flag etiquette by leaning on the flag as it lay draped over a bar stool. Then there was the ultra unretouched closeup, showcasing pores and facial hair. Palin fans did not like that one at all. And now here’s one with Wasilla gym clothes, and a ginormous watch that has seemingly replaced her wedding ring as the adornment du jour. But that’s not the…

MUDFLIX: Gay Barbarians at the Gate – Marcus Bachmann as First Dude

  In this clip, Keith Olbermann talks to Ken Vogel of Politico about the potential trainwreck, or elevation of the Bachmann campaign. With the less than inspiring, less than electable GOP lineup, Michele Bachmann is actually rising in the polls. What kind of “First Dude” would this oft-compared to Sarah Palin potential candidate bring to the White House? Marcus Bachmann, a Christian counselor hasn’t been bashful about his social conservative opinions. Last we checked, he referred to gays as “barbarians.”  Nothing like reaching out to 10% of the population. But, clearly, it’s not the 10% that they are concerned with….

Palin’s Remarks After Iowa Premiere (Transcript of Word Salad)

Time to get the giant Caesar-sized bowl and the double Costco bag of Crazy Croutons. Sarah Palin delivered a monstrous serving of word salad after the Iowa premiere of “The Undefeated.”  It appears that the potential presidential candidate was unconcerned with having prepared remarks of any kind, and simply let all those buzz words out of her head, in no particular order. The full transcript of the video is below. My favorite part is when she explains that we don’t need foreign countries because God gave us the oil and the gas and the coal and we can be totally…

Oyster Roundup! Whales, FROGs, and Alligator Shirts.

~Thick and fast they came at last, and more, and more, and more! Here’s a plate of slurpable stories to start your week. Source links are in the title. Start shucking!   Pay Up, Joe An Alaska judge on Friday ordered that failed U.S. Senate candidate Joe Miller pay more than $17,300 in legal costs incurred by the state in fighting Miller’s challenge to last year’s election. Don’t even get me started. OK, I’ll start. First the disclaimer – I didn’t vote for Joe, would never vote for him, am ideologically opposed to his political philosophy, and have written extensively…

Palin’s Campaign Film “The Undefeated” Reviewed (Insert Explosion Here)

When returning to my hotel room Friday afternoon. I noticed something slipped in the crack of the door. I was attending the Netroots Nation convention at the Hilton in Minneapolis. As is their habit, the evil (and much smaller) twin of Netroots Nation, called “Right On Line” puppydogs our convention, trailing behind and choosing to hold their convention in whatever city Netroots does. It’s a great strategy if your goal is to look kind of pathetic and really obnoxious at the same time. This year, they were not only in the same city, they were in the same hotel –…

Gun-loving Tea-hadist Punches Solidarity Singer at Wisconsin Capitol

UPDATE: From the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel: Greenbay WI man arrested for battery. Around 1 p.m. Tuesday, a group of protesters was participating in their daily singalong in the Capitol rotunda, when two men along with former state Sen. David Zien began interrupting their singing.

The two men were Green Bay resident Henry Rahr and Shorewood, Minn., resident Eugene German. Michael Dickman, 50, said Rahr and German were bumping into him along…

Beware, Netrooters! Breitbart’s “Pimp Suit” is Heading Your Way!

Yes, Progressives, convicted felon and liar extraordinaire James O’Keefe is en route to Minneapolis thanks to a benevolence of a federal judge. Per The Smoking Gun: Since O’Keefe needs judicial approval to travel outside New Jersey (due to his federal conviction for last year’s harebrained scheme targeting Democratic Senator Mary Landrieu), yesterday he filed a U.S. District Court motion seeking permission to spend this weekend in Minneapolis, Minnesota. O’Keefe claims in his motion that he planned to attend the conservative gathering June 17-19 RightOnline Conference, with Republican presidential hopefuls like Tim Pawlenty, Michelle Bachmann, and Herman Cain. Of course, his…
