I have been reading and listening to the critiques of Clint Eastwood’s speech/soliloquy. I don’t watch political conventions so I never saw the live version. But an advantage of the Internet is you don’t have to. After watching Eastwood all I could say was – awesome! All of us can only hope -assuming we even reach his stage of life- that we could go out and ad-lib a sketch as he did at the Republican Convention. My guess is that many of the detractors of his speech -and there were several from both the liberal and conservative media factions- if they ever do reach Mr. Eastwood’s age, is that they will be lucky if they are not sitting in some nursing home in a urine-filled Depends while grunting to get the night nurse to change them; instead of standing in front of a huge live and televised audience hammering home your opinions. In fact other than Bill Clinton, I doubt if there is a major political speaker, within my voting lifetime, that could have pulled it off at all. Certainly our current POTUS could not. He has trouble speaking, even with the teleprompter assisting him with his normal speeches. Not only was Mr. Eastwood able to get his points across, he did it in a humorous and entertaining manner. Face it most politicians would have fumbled the Eastwood piece to the point the audience in the convention, and at home, would have lost interest in the speech within the first couple of minutes. Bravo Mr. Eastwood, you certainly brought the beef and in a manner most people half your age could not have accomplished.
In another interesting political moment, it seems that a painter has created a portrait of current POTUS Barack Obama. The artist has painted Obama shading totems analyzing 60 of President Obama’s defining moments since he took office. There was no mention in the article by Liz Klimas, if President Obama plans on obtaining it, to use as his Presidential Portrait for display in the White House. The article and a depiction of the portrait can be found at this link.

The what went on behind closed doors ménage à trois of Team Obama-Joe Sestak-Bill Clinton has become news once again. Evidently Clinton dropped another of his historic “I did not have sexual relations with” (this time about Joe Sestak) comments during an interview. He claimed he was not a go-between floating political opportunity possibilities for Team Obama and Sestak. Well that could be embarrassing for someone. Of course with Billy-Bob Clinton’s history of lying -even under judicial oath- it only confuses the matter even more. The most ardent of Clinton supporters used to adamantly dismiss the fact that Teflon Clinton was such an adept liar, as they chimed that his mistruths harmed no one. Wonder how that feels right about now, with Team Obama members sitting in the cross-hairs of his gifted fables. My almost psychic ability is already hearing the calls for a special investigator.
You have to ask the questions. Did members of Team Obama break rules in trying to keep Sestak from playing Washington DC reindeer games? Is boastful Bill just playing word games or flat out lying, again? If so – why? Is he spiteful because his choice lost in the Colorado power play? Is it some sort of Clinton power play to continue regaining Clinton superpower status among Democrat Party members? Is it a preemptive strike for a Hillary for POTUS campaign in 2012? So many questions – so few answers. And since politicians and DC political power brokering are involved; we can expect little in facts that have not been tarnished by spin! Another chink in the False Prophets Hope and Change mantra. It does not matter which major political party is in power – sex, greed, lies, power brokering and thuggish tactics still rule DC politics.
The Never Ending Cycle of Dirty DC Politics Begins Again!!!

New reports are saying that the Team Obama White House had asked Bill Clinton to act as a negotiator seeking to find out what it would take to keep Joe Sestak from running against Arlene Specter in the Pennsylvania Democrat primary. Considering that the controversial incident is now facing possible legal implications – the choice of Clinton, as go between, turns traversing muddy political waters into slogging through a mosquito infested swamp. Bill Clinton lacks integrity – he lost it hiding his marital indiscretions. How can the public, investigators or any legal institution be expected to believe any utterance from the mouth of Bill Clinton -about the Sestak incident- when he already has a track record of lying in court while under oath to tell the truth? They cannot – no one can.

A Peter Popham article in the UK Independent reports that the wife of newly elected Japanese Prime Minister, Yukio Hatoyama, claims she was abducted by aliens about twenty years ago. It seems that his wife, Miyuki Hatoyama, was taken to Venus following the abduction. Must have been a dismal visit as my understanding is that Venus is not the ideal vacationing spot for humans from the planet Earth. I was disappointed with the article in that the reporter either failed his investigative journalism or simply neglected to report the whole story. To be fair, the CNN article on the same subject was even less informative. Nowhere in either article did I read which alien species abducted her. Was it the Greys? Was it the Reptoids? Maybe it was some energy type being? Or was it a yet unannounced intergalactic non-humanoid species? Was she probed or maybe harvested for her eggs? Did she get one of those electronic tags implanted inside her like Scully in the X-Files? What role did the UN have in her abduction? Was there some UN conpiracy to hide her abduction? Was Bill Clinton involved in any part of brokering her release? Did Bill Clinton have sex with her or the aliens after securing her release? Does Hillary know that Bill had sex with her and the aliens? Did she at least get flying miles and/or credits usable at hotels and motels across the known universe? Hey – Inquiring minds wanna know! It did manage to report she also knew Tom Cruise in a previous life. I wonder if he jumped on a couch for her. Once again the reporter failed to give all the facts. Still it has to make the Obamas jealous to know that the US was one-upped by Japan because now Japan probably has the inside edge and will become the leading force in the race for Intergalactic Diplomatic Exchanges. Shucky Darn.

It is being reported that Hillary Clinton was unhappy when in a probable mistranslation, a translator asked a question about what her husband Bill Clinton would think over a Congolese financial deal with China. Can you really blame her? She has been the only Obama team member displaying his or her self-capable of doing the job she was asked to do and seems to get the least credit for her work. Her husband Bill seems to always overshadow her accomplishments, without ever doing anything other than show his face. I suppose she should be used to it by now. It was never much of a top secret than during Bill Clinton’s presidency he spent his time chasing skirts while she worked behind the scenes. Yet he is semi-retired and still stealing the limelight and credit while she continues to work with her nose to the grindstone. I am not a Hillary Clinton fan but situations like this translation muff and the recent insult she recieved from North Korea followed by a Bill Clinton press coverage credit for the North Korea release of prisoners must stick in her craw. It seems like she continues to work-work-work while Bill Clinton and Brack Obama take credit for her labors.

It seems that many in the Gold-Laden Pompous Psychology Industry have become upset as an insider released the ten basic Rorschach images and the top patient replies on Wikipedia. I suppose I could use the building controversy to go on a rant about the smoke-and-mirror shrink industry that I consider mostly a pseudo science, that wants to become the next God, but I won’t. Instead I have decided to take the test myself and analyze the results. The following are my Rorschach Answers to the images presented at the Wikipedia link–>
- Fenrir or my last hip x-ray
- The makeup left on my white towel by my last date
- A stripper that outgrew her costume (might have been my last date) or a powder puff girl sketch
- Transformers – robots in disguise
- A moth or maybe Commissioner Gordon needs to clean the bat signal
- A space ship prop from some B-movie of the fifties or sixties
- An inside look of Al Gore’s skull when M.D.’s performed his lobotomy at the request of the Bill Clinton Administration
- Bozo the Clowns head from the backside
- Monty Burns of The Simpsons performing asexual reproduction
- The Red Skull doing a Jesse “The Body” Ventura imitation
After analyzing my results I have determined that theScoundrel is most likely an average and inconspicuous Zelig-like individual with both bizarre imagination and humor. The patient has a fondness for movies, old cartoons, comic books, science fiction novels, the Chicago Cubs, the Chicago Bears, consuming mass quantities of peanuts, munching down Moon Pies and Nutty Bars, guzzling Mountain Dew and chasing younger women. The individual is somewhat of an insomniac, which probably heightens his already antagonistic issues with authority figures, egotistical hallowed institutions, medical and mental health experts – plus he exhibits an extremely low tolerance for politicians, their disciples and their rhetoric. Which probably explains his complete distrust of their actions and motives. Wow – to think I got all that just analyzing my Rorschach answers! Whew, I guess I’m all-better now!

Normally I am highly critical of Barack Obama. That really is not going to change, as my personal opinion of the man is that he is a liar and a fraud. Obama is the False Prophet of hope and change. Still I am going to toss a small complement in his direction over his handling of the Somali Pirate incident. He helped protect our people and the country’s safety. For that I toss Pope Obama a bone – good job on the rescue. He acted, as I believe that George Bush Jr., William Clinton, George Bush Sr. and Ronald Reagan would have acted in a similar situation. He kept silent and invoked secrecy and let the military do their job. I will leave his fawning press and charmed disciples to offer the more vociferous accolades. Pope Obama has not solved the problem – mind you. For the pirates have already threatened our future ships and have even captured a Greek boat since. But he has shown our enemies (at least the flea specks that are too small to put up any serious fight) that they will face the wrath of our Goliath military in these situations – unleashed by our media selected Pope. Good for him.
On a more humorous look at the situation across the blogosphere liberals are singing and dancing the night away that this is proof-positive that our media selected Pope has the right stuff to lead our military. Maybe/Maybe Not, time will tell. What is so humorous is that the Bush Deranged Obamatons across the Internet are singing Kumbaya and Hosannas for Pope Obama handling the situation just like his predecessor George Bush would have – by keeping his mouth shut about what the military was doing. Had this been a Bush action the Bush Deranged would have been outraged about the secrecy involved plus they would be demanding to know why the Administration had not proposed a 1028 page set of documents for public perusal outlining possible scenarios about which they could come to a public forum consensus of action. ROFLMAO @ the Bush Deranged Obamatons. There have been a few unhappy individuals that have noticed Obama’s Bush-like actions. But this has not been the only time Pope Obama has recently pulled pages out of the George Bush Jr. political handbook. The Obama administration has been working very Bush-like in an attempt to limit terror suspect’s ability to challenge their incarceration. Very Bush-like of Obama. I approve of the move! Another Bush-like move by the Obama administration that the Bush Deranged have kept minimally silent about is Obama’s decision to protect and continue with Bush Jr.’s phone surveillance program; which so many of the Deranged screamed about and used as political canon fodder against McCain during the 2008 POTUS election. Here is the thing – I said long before the election — no matter who was elected that they would be forced to follow similar actions to the Bush Doctrines. And practically every major political military move, excepting the reducing of the military weapons of war purchases, Obama has made is a mirror event to the George Bush Jr. Presidency. The only real differences are his political attempts to quell the blood thirst of his infanticide loving political backers. But in reality that is just another Bush move. Both made quick moves to satiate and temper the core of their backers early in their Presidency. Bush vs. Obama when it comes to dealing with threats to the nation the choices of direction are not varied. Welcome to the real world! I now return you to regularly mind-numbing politcal party rhetoric.

Out with the old – in with the new-old should be the motto of politics. During his campaign soon to be officially anointed Messiah Barack Obama mesmerized his followers with promises of hope and change from politics as usual. ROFLMAO @ anyone foolish enough to believe that a candidate for a political office as high as the President of the USA – will not have been extremely scrutinized by those that pull the Democrat Party puppet strings to assure that Obama will perform their biddings. The “good old boy” philosophy has showed up continuously in his selection for his team that will surround and advise him. One of the more sadistically humorous examples is flying through the process now. While Bill Clinton is busy helping Pope Obama make the transfer into the White House and be named for possible posts in an Obama administration his wife Hillary is on the fast track to securing her place on the Obama team also. Meanwhile back at the ranch…. –> Another former Clinton good old boy, Eric Holder, is working his way through the process towards the position of Attorney General for His Holiness Barack Obama’s incoming Administration. !!ROFLMAO!! Because he chants the Obama manta of anti-water-boarding interrogation techniques, Holder is expected to have his derrière stamped with the proper seal of approvals but is catching flack for his part in some of Bill Clinton’s Presidential pardons. In particular the Clinton’s decision to pardon financial criminal Marc Rich and a group of terrorist bombers. But Holder like a true politician is spreading the blame around. The pardon of Marc Rich, a financial criminal, was described by former FBI director Louis Freeh as a corrupt act but that Holder was not truly responsible because he was pressured into the decision to pardon Rich by the Clinton Administration. Oops! Is that the same Bill and Hillary Clinton that are a big of MR. Hope and Change Barack Obama’s incoming administration? LOL, there is a vicious cycle all the same people making all the same decisions together again –>advising the Mr. Hope and Change President! When pressed on the Clinton Administration ’s decision to pardon 16 terrorists from FALN/ or Armed Forces of National Liberation, that had committed over 120 terrorist acts-of-bombing against the USA! His excuse –> well that was a reasonable pardon and besides others like Jimmy Carter had been pressing for the pardons. Playing pattycake with extremist terrorists, that worked well for us leading up to 9-11. Hmm seems like Holder has no problem selling out to politicians pressuring him. The whole idea of choosing a person defending the pardoning terrorists because of political pressure does not surprise me (or make me sleep any better at night) with Obama choosing. After all it is Pope Obama that thinks he can just close Guantanamo Bay and the prisoners he releases will play nicely afterwards. Right, but that only continues to be proved wrong over and over again. The Obama administration continues to prove he is no agent of change or hope. Just more of the same political system he politicked against. Under Obama the politcal past is the same as the politcal future – it just has a less wrinkled face.

A curious scientific study has found fossils related from dissimilar preservation sites, dating from 635 to 541 million years ago, which were originally found in Southern China and Southern Australia. The creature from the Ediacaran Period is named Eoandromeda octobrachiata. The discovery comparison is said to be evidence that the two regions were originally located geographically close together. Another, perhaps more overlooked discovery, was that the description of the creature offers evidence that it is most likely one of Bill Clintons earliest ancestors. Very similar to descriptions about HornDog Bill Clinton from women stranded alone with Ol’ Bill, the fossil of the creature displayed it also had eight arms. I assume, with all those arms, it was pretty much similar to it’s most likely descendant Bill Clinton, another would be love machine with eight grabbing and groping arms.
If the news wires are right and we are not experiencing another Dewey Defeats Truman event, then Barack Obama will select Joe Biden as his Vice Presidential running mate for his 2008 run. (I wonder how Joe’s hair plugs are handling all the stress? They must be getting pretty old by now. Maybe he will need another round of hair transplants before the National Election.) Gee this is just a short time after Biden claimed he was not the chosen one! Guess you cannot rely on a politicians’ statement if Biden is the chosen ones, his royal holiness Pope Obama, Papal Assistant. Not being part of the holy ones jester court, I will not be getting a text message to confirm the Biden choice. I will instead be waiting for the proto-writing version of the message, for total confirmation. Biden does bring the Washington experience to the ticket Obama lacks. But Biden is also proof of the lack of real change in Obama’s campaign. Biden, who like Obama votes lockstep Democrat party line, is just further proof that an Obama ticket is just more of the same gridlock between Republicans and Democrats we have been experiencing for decades, since neither candidate Obama or Biden has shown an ability or interest of really working across party lines. No surprise there. Types of politicians that display an ability to work across the political aisle are as rare as hens teeth! On a more interesting note, maybe Obama is expecting to be able to earn a masters degree in plagiarism from Master Plagiarist Joe Biden by picking him as his running mate.
On a sadder note I am sure Bill Clinton is crying his eyes out in deep despair at this announcement. After already being the first Black president, I am sure Bill was secretly holding out hope Obama would select Bill to be the first Black Vice President. Plus unless Obama were to win and give Bill a cabinet post, Bill would not have much opportunity for nailing White House Interns. It must be a sad-sad-sad day for Bill Clinton!
