Musket Ridge Golf Club

Musket Ridge Golf Club

It snowed, briefly, and the wind was up all day. But the light and the location in the Maryland highlands made for nice pictures. I will be back.

Mountain Laurel update

Mountain Laurel update





This is what the last one looked like last year. Apparently the opening in the top of the cage was too large. All the upper leaves have been eaten, there's one dead branch, and one live branch at the bottom...

If your Orange Boehner lasts more than 6 terms...






Reform, eh? John Boehner was elected to Congress in 1990, and helped draft the Contract Against America, with its term limit pledge, in 1994. So much for that. I see the Columbus Not Fit For Fishwrap neglected to mention that John Boehner handed out checks from the tobacco lobby to fellow GOOPers on the House floor in June, 1995.

It's not surprising that The Columbus Dispatch would fail to mention this, as they're Republicans who inherited the paper from daddy. I do find it amusing that their source for Boehner's reform credentials is a Republican lobbyist who insisted on anonymity.

As for following the sentence "He doesn't want to get caught up in all the hoopla ... and the trappings of power" with "Boehner, who set his sights on becoming speaker as far back as 1991 when he was a freshman House member...", not even M.C Hammer could touch this.


P.S. Via tildology:

Economic Advice from Caribou Spice



I watched the whole thing so you don't have to. Eek! Inflation! Baby formula prices going up, and Mooselini knows baby formula, you betcha!


For a dose of reality, try Dr. K.

Update: Disinflation Continues (Note 1st and 4th comments.)

The Reptiloid Threat Continues




You could call it the surprise du jour: A popular food on Vietnamese menus has turned out to be a lizard previously unknown to science, scientists say.

What's more, the newfound Leiolepis ngovantrii is no run-of-the-mill reptile—the all-female species reproduces via cloning, without the need for male lizards.

Just wait until Stephen Colbert hears about this. Prepare to bow down to your Reptiloid Lady Masters, sheeple!

P.S. Be sure to watch the entire Threat Down video, if you want to hear more mocking of scientists.

Irony Is Reborn Every Night

Only to have its liver eaten the next day by FAUX Nooze:

Judy Miller criticizes Diane Sawyer for being "too busy blogging and net-Twittering" to properly question Pelosi



"Seems like kind of a kid gloves interview if you watch the whole thing."

FAUX is home base for candidates who can't even take questions from the likes of Katie Couric. This is the network the rest of our media takes its cues from, people. Be sad. Be very sad. The media narrative already is "Obama and the Democrats moved too far to the left".

Interior Department employees referred to the "Third Bush Term". How could it be any more right-wing, without just putting Exxon and B.P. in charge, officially?

Larry Summers and Tim Geithner replaced Bush's crack economics advisor, Hank Paulson. Harsh blow for Wall Street! Anything less than hiring Larry Kudlow will show that that the Marxists are still in charge.

David "The Dean" Broder has already suggested that invading Iran is a solution to our economic problems. The war that would pay for itself has cost us $3 trillion and counting. But we're just going to keep making war until we find the Magical Unicorn!

I'm sure Fred Hiatt will chime in shortly, writing if we only had more tax cuts for the rich, and got rid of these silly expensive programs like "Social Security" and "Medicare", all will be blue skies again.

Now let's click for our medicine, where we'll learn it's all Rachel Maddow's fault.
