Irony is the enemy of the post-modern left(tm)

Archive for January, 2009

40 years ago today

BBC Radio 2 had a bunch of modern bands play songs from Sgt. Pepper, with mostly good results (I’ve never heard of “The Magic Numbers” who massacre “She’s Leaving Home”, and I hope never to again. The rest of the bands including Travis and The Stereophonics do good though). It’s on YouTube in 4 parts: 1 (Sgt. Pepper, A Little Help From My Friends), 2 (Getting Better, Fixing a Hole), 3 (She’s Leaving Home, Lovely Rita), and 4 (Sgt. Pepper Reprise).

MMA training for NFL players?

Apparently Jared Allen’s a big fan of it, so it could work well.

    Mark Steyn on the Geert Wilders trial and then on the stimulus bill. (Program note: Mark will be subbing for Rush Limbaugh on Tuesday and Wednesday, Feb. 3rd and 4th).

  • …and here comes the next one not to pay his taxes, right on time (a bit more here). This just isn’t common elitism, it’s more like the Democrats are the Party of Marie Antoinette. “Let them pay taxes!”

    Sounds plausible. They’ve tried a couple of times to break out of just being a computer company already.

  • A better idea

    A temporary payroll tax cut instead of the pork bill currently being incorrectly called “stimulus”.

  • Do as they say

    Obama stated during the campaign that nobody should turn their heat above 72 degrees to save energy, but he’s keeping the White House much warmer.

  • Reverse!

    Obama’s rehired Samantha Power, an advisor who was dropped by the campaign almost a year ago for publicly calling Hillary “a monster”. She also is an advocate of the US invading Israel on behalf of the Pallies. That’s not really the sort of “change” people had in mind I think.

  • A taxpayer march on Washington?

    Not practical – taxpayers have jobs. And Congress knows it.

  • Ahh, good

    The Democrat leadership won’t do anything about Chris Dodd, but it sounds like voters might.

  • The new hero of the media/Kos/etc

    A guy who looks alarmingly like Ethan Suplee on a bender deserted from the Army and wrote a book so obviously fictional that Kos and the media can’t see anything wrong with it. And don’t miss the comments.

  • Popcorn!

    A Republican has introduced a bill to give all US citizens the same immunity from paying taxes that Rangel and Geithner enjoy. You just write “Rangel Rule” on your 1040 and they can’t touch you. Love it.

  • How do you spell “ingrate”?

    Apparently it’s “Joe Hart”. He’s looking to sue US Airways for the plane that ditched in the Hudson.
