Like I Care About This Crap

Because I know that a certain Nunya will whine like a 12-year old girl if I don't 'say something' about this:

Senator Larry Craig: 'I am Not Gay'

WASHINGTON Denying that he did anything wrong and stating emphatically that "I am not gay," Sen. Larry Craig asked the people of Idaho on Tuesday to forgive him for being arrested two months ago in a police sting in a men's room at the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport.

Craig, who was taken into custody on June 11 by a plainclothes officer investigating reports of lewd conduct in the restroom, said he pleaded guilty to a disorderly conduct charge in an effort to suppress a story pursued by his home-state newspaper that he has secretly engaged in gay trysts.

Craig said the story has been following him for nearly a year.

"For eight months leading up to June 11th my family and I had been relentlessly and viciously harassed by the Idaho Statesman. If you saw the article today, you know why. Let me be clear: I am not gay. I never have been gay," Craig said in a news conference in his hometown of Boise.

Oh my....what ever will the Republican Party do now? For shame on him....for shame!!

[/complete sarcasm][/truth][/concern]

Okay, that should satisfy the whiny demographic of my readers.....

ADDENDUM - Well, although I haven't been paying too much attention to how this has been playing out in the media it would seem that there's a lot of huff-N-puff happening about how Senator Craig should immediately resign because of the hypocrisy factor.

On one hand, those that are pushing for resignation due to Craig's stands on gay marriage and such have a point IMHO; for those that have read my stuff for the last few years know how I feel about hypocrisy. For those that haven't been reading my stuff for the last few years - get with the program and start reading ALL of the archived stuff.

On the other hand some of the finer points of the arrest, charges filed, charges dropped, and the final guilty plea should be considered. Like I said, I haven't been following this because....well, I really don't give a crap either way, but it apparently has been the hot-button topic on several talk radio shows.

I'll wrap up this addendum with what I initially thought when I heard about it on the Mark Levin Show while I was driving home from Vons about 20 minutes ago: if this U.S. Senator had been a Democrat or maybe even from the state of Massachusetts, how loudly would the drum beating be about

So....looking at what I've banged out on the computer keyboard just now, consider the what if aspect of this if instead of Senator Craig being busted for possible bathroom hanky-panky, it was Congressman Bob Filner and what happened to him when he got busted for hassling some airport security screening personnel.

For those that are not part of the Barking Moonbat Brigade, you know what the ramifications would be if the subject of this 'scandal' had a 'D' next to their name......

Okay Class....

Let's review some basic blogosphere edicate:

  1. My blog, my rules.
  2. I reserve the right to ban asshats.
  3. The definition of what exactly constitutes an asshat is solely at my discretion.
  4. Free discourse and open debate are welcome here!
  5. Free discourse and open debate does not give you the right to be an asshat.
  6. I reserve the right to be an asshat myself.
  7. I shall exercise Diety-like actions at my discretion and delete whatever I deem to be written in an asshat-like manner.
  8. When in doubt, see Rule #1.
I've had to make this post because of what I'd consider asshat-like behavior in my comments section lately.

Most of you that know me in real life (the meatsphere) and those that know me soley here in the blogosphere know that I'm more than easy going and will tolerate quite a lot, but sometimes you have to stand up and piss along the edges of your sandbox just to remind everyone of Rule #1.

What's Up Doc?

I was sitting on the computer this afternoon - well, more like sitting in front the comuter.....sitting on the computer makes typing difficult. Anyways - here I was sitting in front of the computer and it occurred to me to possibly update anyone keeping track of such trivial stuff as to the state of affairs of my health.

Obviously, I'm still alive. And contrary to what some might say as to the state of mental functions since the stroke (especially where some of my political opinions lay), NO, I haven't suffered any permmanant damage (dain bramage) to my brain pan. Nothing significant, but there is one thing that's 'popped up' recently:

Death? What a Shame...

John Couey Sentenced To Death For Lunsford Murder

A convicted sex offender was sentenced Friday to death for kidnapping 9-year-old Jessica Lunsford, raping her and then burying her alive in his yard.

John Evander Couey looked straight ahead as Circuit Judge Ric Howard told him he should be executed for the 2005 crimes that led to new laws in many states cracking down on convicted sex offenders.

Sheriff's deputies hustled the handcuffed inmate out of the crowded courtroom.

The girl's father, Mark Lunsford, teared up as he listened to the judge read a detailed history of the case for nearly an hour. He hugged relatives after the sentence was read.

The jury that convicted Couey in March recommended 10-2 that he die for his crimes, but the decision was left to Howard.

And now the prosecutor's office should go after Couey's relatives that covered for his sorry ass - you know, the one's that knew what he had done and got him a bus ticket to leave town. At minimum, they should have to pull the switch on Couey and then be put to death themselves for abetting his sorry ass by having angry badger's jammed up their asses.

All joking aside, there are many ways in which to 'get the message' out to anyone considering abducting a child and most of them should involve public displays of violent deaths on the part of pedophiles. Maybe it should be on Pay-per-View, with the proceeds going to a victims fund.

In my mind, Hell has a special place dedicated all to child molesters and pedophiles like Couey....one that exceeds even the most twisted stuff that Quentin Tarantino could possible imagine.....and people like Couey will rot in the depths of such a place for eternity....

Can't Catch Me!! - Doh!

Apparently, the concept of 'safe on base' when playing Tag isn't known throughout the world:

Immigration Activist Arrested Outside L.A. Church

(AP) LOS ANGELES An illegal immigrant who stayed in a Chicago church for a year to avoid separation from her 8-year-old son, a U.S. citizen, was arrested Sunday and being processed for deportation.

Elvira Arellano, who arrived in Los Angeles on Saturday after leaving her sanctuary to campaign for immigration reform, was arrested around 1:30 p.m. outside Our Lady Queen of Angels Catholic Church where she had been speaking to reporters, said the Rev. Walter Coleman, pastor of Adalberto United Methodist, the Chicago church.

Arellano was "being processed for removal to Mexico based upon a deportation order originally issued by a federal immigration judge in 1997," U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement said in a news release.

When I first heard about this on the radio this morning, my first and only thought was: Dumb.

That's right: dumb.

How dumb do you have to be to seek sactuary in a church and then to purposefully step outside that sanctuary to travel to another city? Well, it would seem that Ms. Arellano met and/or exceeded that threshold.

You're 'safe' when you're touching the base - you cannot be tagged. But every kid that's played the game knows this: if you step away from the base, you can be tagged.

And the cherry that goes on top of this story?

U.S. Deports Sanctuary Movement's Symbol

TIJUANA, Mexico (AP) - An illegal immigrant who took refuge in a Chicago church for a year to avoid being separated from her American-born son was deported from the United States to Mexico, where she vowed Monday to continue her campaign to change U.S. immigration laws.

The cherry is that there wasn't any being released to return for a immigration hearing like the last time - she got tossed over the fence into Tijuana, Mexico.

While this isn't something 'outrageous' that deserves a 'Butt Monkey' label attached to it, it certainly ranks up there enough to have it nominated to be a Darwin Award.

UPDATE: Of course once you have one person come along and whine about something you post they're followed by another cockroach who brings along their laundry list of 'indecencies' that I've not addressed to their satisfaction:

Edwards Using WMD

John Edwards will stoop lower than anyone ever thought.

Here he is flinging out an Iraqi Death Bunny™ to make up for his lack of anything substantial in his speech. So far, there aren't any reports of deaths in the crowd upon which he unleashed this weapon of mass destruction.

Damn him - damn him to Hell!!

Gunning for the Military Vote in 2008

What a complete moron:

Fact Check: Obama on Afghanistan

WASHINGTON - Democrat Barack Obama said it, the Republican Party pointed out in a screaming headline Tuesday that highlighted the presidential candidate's comments on Afghanistan and the killing of civilians.

Behind the scenes, Obama's rival campaigns buzzed about his statement uttered Monday during a campaign stop in New Hampshire when he was asked about his plan to move troops into Afghanistan.

"We've got to get the job done there and that requires us to have enough troops so that we're not just air-raiding villages and killing civilians, which is causing enormous problems there," Obama said.

Oh yeah....what a way to gain favor and support from the military block of voters.....idiot.

I haven't really thought much about Obama, nor have I thought that he'd make it though the Democratic primaries let alone getting in the the White House - the guy is too young and from what I've read, he doesn't have much of any experience. But with 'Butt Monkey' launching statements like this, at least people will recognize his name immediately.

VRWC Idea Stolen

Here's something for those sad, demented folks who were convinced that the FBI would be using library records to track what you're reading and were foaming-at-the-mouth about the *cough* 'invasion of privacy':

Not So Fast: E-Z Pass Data Used To Catch Cheaters

Divorce Lawyers Find Toll Records, Prove Spouses Lied About Whereabouts

TRENTON, N.J. There's some potentially troubling and telling news for all you motorists out there who may be taking the Turnpike for the worst crime in marriage: cheating on your significant other.

E-ZPass and other electronic toll collection systems are emerging as a powerful means of proving infidelity. That's because when your spouse doesn't know where you've been, E-ZPass does.

"E-ZPass is an E-ZPass to go directly to divorce court, because it's an easy way to show you took the off-ramp to adultery," said Jacalyn Barnett, a New York divorce lawyer who has used E-ZPass records a few times.

Lynne Gold-Bikin, a Pennsylvania divorce lawyer, said E-ZPass helped prove a client's husband was being unfaithful: "He claimed he was in a business meeting in Pennsylvania. And I had records to show he went to New Jersey that night."

Okay, so instead of the evil big-bad-Bush-cronies using simple tracking information to get you, we're now seeing it utilized by a segment of the population that's slightly higher up on the food chain when compared to anyone who....oh, I don't know.....supported John Kerry back in 2004: divorce lawyers.

Yup, you got it - slimy divorce lawyers are using a play from the Vast Right Wing Conspiracy to get you when you least expect it.

Because I'm not Talking Enough

Because someone left a comment about my NOT discussing this to their satisfaction, here's a 'Launching a Butt Monkey'-category post:

Alaska Senator's Home Is Raided

Agents from the FBI and the Internal Revenue Service raided the Alaska home of Sen. Ted Stevens (R) yesterday as part of a broad federal investigation of political corruption in the state that has also swept up his son and one of his closest financial backers, officials said.

Stevens, the longest-serving Republican senator in history, is under scrutiny from the Justice Department for his ties to an Alaska energy services company, Veco, whose chief executive pleaded guilty in early May to a bribery scheme involving state lawmakers.

Oh the shame....the horror....what will I ever do now for credibility in the face of those with whom I disagree with?

Oh the agony....the shame....the verbosity of infliction, inflection, infection, and white toast.

Okay nunya, does this make you a happy camper now? You do realize that this is probably the 5th or 6th time that I've had to remind you that I'm no longer a Republican, right? Did I meet or exceed the expectation(s) you had set in your mind about this? And finally, one last question: exactly when, where, and by whom was it mandated that I should listen and react to your whining about my not talking/blogging about some specific political topic?

You know what - don't answer that last question.....it's not worth the bandwidth. Why don't you take a broad view of what I've posted over the last 12 months and maybe...just maybe you'll get a general sense what what my priorities have been, okay?

Thanks Skippy.

UPDATE: I got a reply - a lengthy reply - as to my not pleasing everyone all of the time.

Instead of replying in the comments section, I've posted it below for careful reading....
