Thursday This and That


Looking forward to the cabin, I need a vacation from the house and computer. It should be fun, the rest of the guys are basically urban lumberjacks from one of the largest city tree contractors in California. We'll knock the work out quick then its time to break out the fishing gear and guns and have some fun.

I see the GOP is finally growing a spine and fighting back on shamnesty and over spending through hidden earmarks and pork amid the tanking approval ratings of Pelosi's congress. Good, it's about dang time and our base does not seem to be as divided as the MSM would like us to believe and the DNC's appears to be in deep disarray between the disparate groups that form their coalition from the far left to the more sensible centrists.

Speaking of the MSM, MSNBC has this story about "journalists" for major news groups that gave to political groups or nominees, guess which party dominated in the MSM, the democrats of course including three at FOX.
Tony Blair's speech about the MSM can be found at OPJ online and is a must read.

Trent Lott needs to know when to shut his trap and quit insulting goats, I take personal offense at these remarks. (Hattip: Hotair)

Sen. Minority Whip Trent Lott, R-Miss., was talking to reporters Wednesday about the immigration bill, when he said, “If the answer is ‘build a fence’ I’ve got two goats on my place in Mississippi. There ain’t no fence big enough, high enough, strong enough, that you can keep those goats in that fence.”
“Now people are at least as smart as goats,” Lott continued. “Maybe not as agile. Build a fence. We should have a virtual fence. Now one of the ways I keep those goats in the fence is I electrified them. Once they got popped a couple of times they quit trying to jump it.”
“I’m not proposing an electrified goat fence,” Lott added quickly, “I’m just trying, there’s an analogy there.”

He has clearly spent too much time in the Washington fever swamp and not enough time tending his goats. Maybe he should be brought home by the Mississippi voters.

LOL! Now, now, Goat. Perhaps you should rethink this one. He's actually saying Goats are smarter than he is. He had to electrify a fence in order to keep them in, because he couldn't build a fence that would contain them. That makes the Goats smart and doesn't say much for the fence builder. ;)

LOL, Gayle you are right, grin!

Playing off Gayle's post... and we trust legislation that this guy supports when he can't build a fence?
