Underpants Gnomes of Mass Destruction

Fred Hiatt, untalented hack and editorial page editor of the Washington Post, has chosen to continue his series of bleat-outs from the losers, war-criminals, and just plain old criminals from the Bush-Cheney Administration with something from General Michael V. Hayden.

Former General Hayden was a big fan of spying on Americans without a warrant when he was head of the NSA and later the CIA. Now he a principal at the Chertoff Group, a security consultancy co-founded by former Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff.

So certainly we all want to hear what experts from the shrub regime have to say about national security, seeing as they were so successful and all. Here's Michael: Obama administration takes several wrong paths in dealing with terrorism.

If anyone knows wrong paths, Michael Hayden would. For my loyal readers, I've summarised his piece in the form of a picture:

P.S. Scott Horton:

As (Jeff) Stein notes, Kiriakou’s false statements about the efficiency of waterboarding instantly swept America’s mainstream media—in addition to ABC, they appeared in the Washington Post, the New York Times, NPR, CBS, CNN, MSNBC, and numerous other media. How many of these sources will now acknowledge that the reports they propagated were false? Don’t hold your breath.

Friday Random (1) + (1)

I remember seeing these guys on a pier in the South Street Seaport, back in the day. (Back in the day means when I worked in lower Manhattan, so sometime between 1984 and 1995.)

Right back atcha, Brando!

P.S. For some reason, this shows up as a suggestion with the Styx. So for you gagaists (gagaistas?) out there:

Scott Horton explains yesterday's Supreme Court ruling

My versions:

The Supreme Court has once again affirmed the principle of "One dollar, one vote".

Money has a right to free speech. Actual citizens, not so much.

"Judicial restraint flies out the door when money comes innuendo." - Justice Antonin "Groucho" Scalia

P.S. Read Scott Horton's great articles about our detainees, as well.

Speaking of Conan...

It's Arnocorps!

Who are they?

Hello, I’m Holzfeuer and I do fantastic
vocalizations for the people, right there.

Vielmehr Klampfe: Hand-to-string combat
specialist on guitar, exactly.

Barrakuda: Handsome Inzo der Barrakuda.
Guitar. Beauty. Girth.

Toten Adler: Ballsy bass-playing Toten Adler,
that’s me. I also swim the waters off Alcatraz,
climb cliffs, play with the boobies.

Gellend Adler: Exactly. My name is Gellend
Adler, I’m the greatest drummer of all time.
I have many championships, but I remain modest.

And what of Austrian Death Machine?

Gellend: Come on, that stuff will make you soft, like marshmallow. Don’t listen to it near a campfire, you’ll end up with a red hot stick up your ass and feeling the wrong kind of burn.

Barrakuda: I want his skull. I want to shrink his head and put it on a Care Bear body and then mail it to his mother.

Holzfeuer: He needs to stick with his mallcore band and continue bastardizing music of the metals instead of someone bastardizing the tales of Austria, again. Can you believe this guy is making a tribute to an actor-politician instead of the original tales? The copycat is honouring the biggest copycat of all time!

Gellend: Goddamn low forehead, right there.

Toten: Sickens me.

WV- conaned- it either involves getting brained by a mighty-thewed Cimmerian, or getting fired and collecting a cool $30 mil.

I started watching Conan back when I lived in NYC. Hard to imagine watching Leno instead (I rarely turn the TV on here in Ohio, so it's sort of a mute/moot point).

Comment salute

Often times I put up comments for people to poop on.

M. Bouffant has some today.

Now for something completely different:

Technical difficulties currently preclude proper display of the Beck - Palin interview, but I believe the general idea is conveyed.

Pablito and National Insecurity, we who are about to die go back to work salute you!

UPDATE! I have enrolled in a course at the prestigious 3Bulls! OmbudsAcademy. In "Ombudsing 101a - The Basics of Blog Customer Care™", I have already learned to respond to common tater needs, such as the one expressed by ZRM.

Morning Hatebeak

As seen at the H.o.S.

And now for the daily question: shave, shower, put on a suit+tie and go to hell work, or drink myself silly silliest and go back to bed?

P.S. From the Youtube. They didn't say whether it steals comments.

The Thundermobile is grounded!

Good thing I'm not planning on driving anywhere for a few weeks. Of course, in a few weeks the only thing likely to be different is that that pile of snow will be bigger. NOT THAT I'M COMPLAINING OR NOTHING!

Now for other bidness. BBBB is sticking up for Fuzzbox in the face of Spin Magazine's accusation of being the world's worst cover (of this song).

I can not rate for Fuzzbox when it comes to Spirit In The Sky.

And now for: @Utube WTF LOLZ!!!

P.S. More snowscape:

Sideling Hill

Whenever I take my preferred route back west to Columbus, I pass Sideling Hill on I-68.

I noticed that they shut down the Visitor Center last year, but didn't realize that this was permanent or that there were still facilities open there.

Maybe next time I'll slow down even more and take a few more pictures.

P.S. This is the weather I came home to:
