Are We Watching the Left’s Death Throes?

Taranto gets some jollies at the Left’s legislative morass:

The White House is “bracing for the defeat of President Obama’s jobs bill,” the Hill reports. That’s hardly surprising, since Republicans control the House–except that it is the Senate, where Democrats hold a majority, that is expected to vote down the $447 billion Stimulus Jr. plan.

Unnamed White House officials “emphasized their view that it is Republicans who are holding up the . . . plan, and they downplayed Democratic defections,” the report adds. “And officials warned that Republican presidential candidates who follow the lead of Congress . . . will be painted with the same brush as a GOP Congress that voted against the jobs bill at a critical time.”

Run for your lives, Republicans! Obama’s got a brush!

RTWT. Taranto mocks some sundry Administration-defending suspects, then turns to Hot Air’s “Green Room” demi-star Howard Portnoy’s observation to set up a pertinent point:

Portnoy observes: “What I believe is happening is that the left is reading the handwriting on the wall and resigning itself to the harsh reality [that] the man they trusted to ‘fundamentally transform America’ is on the verge of being unelected.”

We’d go a step further. Not only does Obama’s re-election look to be in serious jeopardy, but his presidency has been an almost unmitigated disaster for progressive liberalism, nearly every tenet of which has been revealed to be untenable either practically, politically or both.

Taranto’s riff dove-tails nicely (for my purposes) with this NRO piece: The Eternal Heartbreak of the American Left: Read More ›

“McAwesome” No More

Sorry, Champ, no. longer. yours.

This crap knocks you down to plain ol’ “Gov. Fatty”:

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie says he is backing Mitt Romney for president as “the man we need to lead America” and said attacks on his Mormon religion are “beneath the office of the president of the United States.”

Christie announced his endorsement at a surprise appearance in New Hampshire with the former Massachusetts governor on Tuesday.

The event comes a few days after the Rev. Robert Jeffress, a supporter of Texas Gov. Rick Perry, called Romney’s religion a “cult” and said he was “not a Christian.” Jeffress was at an event where he introduced Perry.

On Tuesday, Christie said “any campaign that associates itself with that type of comment is beneath the office of the president of the United States.”

Romney described Christie as an “American hero” who has battled to “rein in the excesses of government in New Jersey.”

The ineffably brutal Stacey McCain burrows down to the nut of the reasons for Gov. Fatty throwing his weight behind Mittens… and by “nut,” I mean “sweet, sweet GOP Establishment money”:

The GOP money people in New York — Georgette Mosbacher, et al. — were the ones urging Christie to run and, when he finally said “no” for the thousandth time, they all jumped on the Romney bandwagon. A big-money RINO-lanche for Romney is the only way to stop a certain surging candidate. IYKWIMAITYD.

It was only days ago that I was warning folks that The Stupid Party was going to pull this kind of crap. They are just as goddamn ignorant unbelievably blind as the Democrats who are supporting the Stupid Fucking Hippies.

This Stupidity/Cupidity is Gonna End in Bloodshed

First: Idiocy on parade:

“I support the message to the establishment,” House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., said on ABC’s “This Week.” “Change has to happen. We cannot continue in a way that does not — that is not relevant to their lives. People are angry.”

To Democrats eager for a liberal antidote to the Tea Party energy that lifted Republicans to power last year, the “Occupy” rallies that started in New York last month and have spread to cities nationwide are tempting to embrace.

Hey, Toots? You’re the former Speaker of the House of Representatives; current House Minority Leader; your party controls the Senate and the White House….

You are “the establishment,” you idiot bint.

Meanwhile, the Stupid Fucking Hippies are pissing off the locals:

… Mr. Bloomberg expressed sympathy for residents. On his radio show, he received a call from a woman whose apartment overlooks the park.

“I want to know about my rights to use that park,” the woman said. “This is our little sliver of greenery that we reclaimed after Sept. 11. It’s now unusable. There is a general presence of incivility down there.”

Mr. Bloomberg responded, “We are trying to deal with this in a way that doesn’t make the problem grow and protects everybody’s rights.”

Several businesses said they had no choice but to respond to the influx of protesters by closing bathrooms.

Mike Keane, who owns O’Hara’s Restaurant and Pub, said that the theft of soap and toilet paper had soared and that one protester had used the bathroom but had failed to properly use the toilet. Both Ms. Tzortzatos, owner of the Panini and Company Cafe, and Mr. Keane said the protesters rarely bought anything, yet hurled curses when they were told that only paying customers could use their bathrooms.

Steve Zamfotis, manager of another nearby store, Steve’s Pizza, said: “They are pests. They go to the bathroom and don’t even buy a cup of coffee.”

Mr. Zamfotis closed his bathroom after it repeatedly flooded from protesters’ bathing there.

Kira Annika, a spokeswoman for the protesters, wrote in an e-mail that she had not heard such complaints: “We were under the impression that the local business community appreciated our patronage.”


In a widely distributed pamphlet, “Welcome to Liberty Plaza: Home of Occupy Wall Street,” participants were instructed where to find relief. “After you’ve dined,” it reads, “feel free to refresh yourself in the restrooms of neighboring businesses like Burger King and McDonald’s without feeling obligated to buy anything.

Yesterday, Bloomie gave the Stupid Fucking Hippies the high sign, saying they could indefinitely continue befouling Zuccotti Park, as long as they “obey the law.” Considering they’ve been breaking various laws since Day One, I’d say–like the collected cretins–“that’s a mighty white thing you’re doing there, Nanny Bloom!” Read More ›
