From the files of the American Taliban-Fatwahs are great for us too!

We are indeed witnessing the End of Times for Republicans. After the last eights years of preaching large scale clash of civilizations against Muslims from the Right, they've decided to join them.

First we got a yahoo from Texas, Republican Pete Sessions saying:

"Insurgency, we understand perhaps a little bit more because of the Taliban," Sessions said during a meeting yesterday with Hotline editors. "And that is that they went about systematically understanding how to disrupt and change a person's entire processes. And these Taliban -- I'm not trying to say the Republican Party is the Taliban. No, that's not what we're saying. I'm saying an example of how you go about [sic] is to change a person from their messaging to their operations to their frontline message. And we need to understand that insurgency may be required when the other side, the House leadership, does not follow the same commands, which we entered the game with."

And now the Republicans in California are calling for fatwahs!

Now, at a time when the national GOP is trying to find its voice and cultivate new candidates, California GOP activists have begun engaging in a new pastime: issuing "fatwas" to punish state Republican legislators deemed too moderate on tax issues.

This circular firing squad was on display last week at a "Tax Revolt" rally that drew 8,000 people to a Fullerton parking lot. It was organized by popular conservative talk show hosts John and Ken - John Kobylt and Ken Chiampou of radio station KFI in Los Angeles.

It's always more "insane in the membrane" from Conservatives.

NY 20th NY race: Republican candidate Jim Tedisco says he would have voted "no" on the stimulus.

Jimmy Tedisco dropped the "Republican" identifier from his campaign commercials. I love it when Republicans try to run away from the label "Republican."

Jimmy Tedisco also decided to answer the question: "How would you have voted on the stimulus plan if you were in Congress?" Jimmy Disco has been dodging that question all month. He finally answered "no" to a local reporter.

Considering the stimulus enjoys positive poll numbers, I think this is great news for Scott Murphy.

Did you hear this one?

These two Irish grave diggers, Sean and Seamus, were digging a grave across the street from the local brothel. A little after lunch time, Sean spots a Lutheran minister walking down the street and head into the whore house.

"Hey Seamus," Sean says. "Look at that thieving, lying shameful Lutheran minister goin' in the whore house! If his parishioners only knew."

"Aye if they only knew what that filthy Lutheran was doing in midday, Seamus."

A half an hour later the Lutheran minister leaves the brothel beaming from ear to ear while Seamus and Sean alternated hushed curses of "whore monger, charlatan, servant of Satan..."

A short while later, Vicar Talbot from the local Anglican Church rounds the corner, walks down the street and goes into the whore house.

"Sean...lookie there. That filthy English vicar likes the whores too."

"Oh for Pete's sake Seamus! These false prophets peddling idolatry are surely leading their flock astray If only his parishioners knew what a filthy whore monger he was."

A half an hour later, the vicar leaves the whore house beaming from ear to ear.

"Pederast. Whore monger. Liar." Sean and Seamus curse.

A half an hour later Father O'Shaugnesey, from St. Stephen's, rounds the corner and makes his way to the whore house.

"Seamus, doff your hat." Sean hand over his heart deadpans, "There is a girl a dying in there."

Happy St. Patrick's Eve w/ The Pogues

I'm proposing a new tradition for Boldly Liberal. It's now Irish Joke day. Tell whatever favorite, can be tasteless, Irish joke you got.

Race to watch-Jimmy Disco vs Scott Murphy

Back in January Governor Paterson of New York appointed Blue Dog Rep. Kirsten Gillibrand to finish out Senator Clinton's term in the Senate. That set up a special election to be held on March 31st.

Gillibrand's district, the area north and south of Albany, leans Conservative. The GOP is hoping a win with their candidate Jimmy Tedisco will signal the high water mark of the left wing tide.

The state Dems, frankly disappointed with Paterson's Gillibrand decision, nevertheless are fighting it out under the banner of Missouri native, Scott Murphy.

Scott two weeks ago was twenty points down in the polls. Now he's closed within 4 points of Jimmy Disco.

Here's some local coverage of the Murphy/Tedisco debate-

Here's your weekly Obama address to the Nation.

He's announcing a new head of the FDA, Margaret Hamburg. She's not a lobbyist but a career government servant.

Competency is so refreshing.

For those that have missed Cramer vs Stewart-UPDATED with last night's video.

I really love this whole story. This is the beginning of the whole smack down. I love Cramers retort. "Stewart didn't show me saying to sell" LMAO. That was after the stock took a major dump. Cramer really has this whole stock Market thing down. LOL

Here is the story from Wednesday night.

When Mr.Bold post the head to head vid tonight, you will have the whole story up to date.

Stewart v Cramer

I'm half way through the show. Jon's grilling of Cramer and Wall Street is brutal.

Boooo! Muntadar al-Zaidi gets 3 years for throwing shoes.

BBC is reporting that the shoe thrower got a sentence of 3 years from an Iraqi judge. His lawyers plan to appeal.

Hey why didn't anyone tell me there was a 2 minute hate propoganda program for Liberals?

The lads over at American [barely a]Thinker think they see parallels between Orwell's 1984 and the Obama administration:

Obama's purpose should have been obvious. For the past eight years, the Democrats have made intense and persistent use of the Two Minute Hate technique that George Orwell described in Nineteen Eighty-Four...


This is great news! I've been looking for a good radio or Tee-Vee program that whips up hate against Republicans, much like what Michael Savage and Rush Limbaugh do for the GOP. Who oh who is the propigator of the two minutes of hate for Left?

Let's see....*skims American Thinker article*...1st para...2nd para...13th para-

No one! The wingnut doesn't cite a single lefty source of this steady stream of hate.

*sigh* Well as soon as the Thinker finds one, I'll let you all know so we can tune in.


For those logicians out there, American Thinker's argument breaks down thusly:

Big Brother used 2 minutes of hate programming to control populace-

Unnamed, unknown, uncited liberal hate programming turned the population away from Bush.

ZOMG we're living 1984!

Introducing Boldly Liberal 4.0

I decided to switch background colors because the other was a pain in the butt to color match with the various embedded content. I changed the layout a bit too.

I'm liking the Disqus system. I know we've had posters here who do not like to give an email address, but honestly it's time to open a junk hotmail or yahoo account if you don't already have one. One big advantage of Disqus is you can track posters' comments across multiple blogs much like facebook. The only downside that I've discovered, thanks to Ufologist, is the inability to edit comments that have been replied to.

Open thread

OK give Disqus a try.

Tuesday open thread

You can rant and rave about whatever you'd like to here.

BTW I'm testing the Disqus commenting system. I've seen it on Jeffrey Feldman's site, TheFrameShop and at www.cl-morans.com and liked what I saw.


OK I ditched the Disqus system because it doesn't allow anonymous comments.

Have you noticed there's a lot of shrieks of "class warfare!"?

I ran across good article by Jonathan Chait at The New Republic: wealthy-idiots-meet-idiot-reporter.

Here's a helpful graph to shut up the shriekers.

Thanks for Adding me

I appreciate being selected to contribute to this blog. I look forward to checking out the site and posting on a few issues that I have with our current situations. Once again, I thank you.

Republicans can't tell the truth from the bullshit anymore.

This is too funny-

Met with Republican Rep. Mary Bono Mack from Riverside County's Coachella Valley. While a social moderate, Sonny Bono's widow is a solid conservative. Talked to her about Obama's $780 billion stimulus legislation. She's outraged that the plan has "$1 billion wasted on a magnetic-levitation train from L.A. to Sin City" - all at Nevada Sen. Harry Reid's doing.

After expressing my doubt that the Las Vegas line was actually in the bill's language, Bono Mack directs her staff to "get him the bill, it's right there, show him." A few minutes later, a staffer emerges with a copy and quietly says "it's not in the bill."


That's what happens when you outsource your brain to a drug addict.

Should we ever take seriously what a rightwinger thinks?

Over at the Daggatt blog, they compile a lot of quotes which points to no.

Daggatt: 1993 Budget Act

Steele puckers up to kiss Rush's butt. I would have guessed 48 hours.

Steele now says:

“I went back at that tape and I realized words that I said weren’t what I was thinking,” Steele said. "It was one of those things where I thinking I was saying one thing, and it came out differently. What I was trying to say was a lot of people … want to make Rush the scapegoat, the bogeyman, and he’s not."

“I’m not going to engage these guys and sit back and provide them the popcorn for a fight between me and Rush Limbaugh,” Steele added. “No such thing is going to happen. … I wasn’t trying to slam him or anything.”

Too late...

Yeah, we're a center right nation...right.

The Sarge weighs in on Rush

I don't understand where this dude is coming from. Even though the muck is flying around, I have never once here any liberal say "I hope Bush fails." For him to come out on TV and say he hopes Obama fails seems to be very low. If our president fails, we as a country fail because he is our most noticeable representative. We have to give this man the benefit of the doubt that he is genuine. We have to let his plan for America progress and see where it goes. And American who hopes he fails, should develop a loyalty for their country, and not a political party.

The Sarge-

Mr Bold adds-
Well for you to say "I have never once here any liberal say "I hope Bush fails." with all the liberals I know you've heard from, I'll take it.

I've never said "I hope Bush fails" either. Now I know I've said, "Bush is fucking up.", but that was a call for alarm. The Democratic Party worked with Bush and demonstrated a willingness to compromise that we have not seen at all from the Republicans.

Do you know a Birther? Here's a way maybe to talk to them.

A Birther asks on NYC's RnR page:

Why all the mystery? Why doesn't the State of Hawaii order its Department of Health to allow a public vieiwing of Obama's original birth certificate or registry of birth? They are only creating doubts by evading public scrutiny. If his birth on American soil is not in question, perhaps they are trying to conceal something else such as a different paternity. Don't Americans who elected him have a right to know for sure?

A New Yorker responds:

I have a family member who suffers from bi-polar disorder. During one of her psychotic phases, she kept insisting her next door neighbor had killed people and had stashed the bodies in his utility shed. I called her shrink and asked him if it would be okay if I proved to the patient her delusions were in fact delusions. The shrink said go ahead, but that her delusion would merely transform to some new related delusion. I made contact with her neighbor, told him the problem -- he was very understanding -- and I took the patient for a tour of the utility shed. We looked through bags of straw and fertilizer and behind the riding mower. No dead people. Later I asked the patient if she now understood the neighbor had not killed anyone. She said her neighbor had not kept the dead bodies in his utility shed, but had in fact buried them in the nearby park. Do you see where I'm going with this?

Steele stands against Rush...

Let's see, he called Rush's speech "ugly" and "inciendiary." I love these Freudian slips!


Anyone want to bet how many days will pass before Steele is on Rush's show kissing his butt?

Mr Bold's dad recommends, T-99

He just saw these guys in Amsterdam. Here they with "The Sun."
