Rmoney Leads In Florida

Here is a video of Rmoney singing at a campaign stop in The Villages, Florida on Monday.

♪♫ I'd like to teach the world to sing
In perfect R-money.

I'd like to hire the world to work
then fire it immediately. ♪♫

(h/t to stoat and R. McGeddon at Eschaton.)

Meanwhile, Pig Newton wants to go back to the moon, and Mooselini Moonselini wants to help.

(H/t Substance McGravitas, IF that is his real name, for the pic.)
If for no other reason, rage against the machine, vote for Newt; annoy a liberal, vote Newt. Keep this vetting process going, keep the debate going, said Sharia Plan.

Keep on rootin' for Pig Newton, says I.

(H/t GottaLaff. I have to go with two words, though.)

UPDATE: It just keeps getting better and better.

When Gingrich's bus pulled up, Dillard stood silently holding his sign and watched the news-media horde swamp the candidate. Gingrich stepped down from the bus and made a beeline for Dillard. He stopped in front of Dillard and his sign and parked himself for a round of handshaking and pictures with voters. The placement couldn't have been worse. There was Gingrich, standing with his wife Callista at their first event of the day, and a giant Ron Paul sign floated inches from their crowns.

Noticing the awkward optics, Gingrich aides and security personnel swarmed Dillard, trying to intimidate him into moving. One of Gingrich's security agents stepped in front of him. When Dillard didn't budge, the agent lifted his heeled shoe over Dillard's bare foot and dug the back of it into his skin, twisting it side-to-side like he was stomping out a cigarette. Shocked, Dillard kept his ground and took a picture of the agent with his phone, which was quickly knocked out of his hand. Dillard slipped off his flip-flop to pick up the phone with his foot, and a Gingrich supporter kicked the sandal away.

"Don't kick me!" Dillard said to the man who knocked away his sandal. More members of Gingrich's security retinue approached, shoving their shoulders and chests in front of him.

"Just block him!" a Gingrich campaign aide said. "Everyone step on his toes!"

Ahem, Pinko...

Forget your S.O.P.A. and P.I.P.A.

It's all about the M.O.P.A.: Massive Online Pinko Ahemorrhage.

The question has been asked, "Who is this "pinko" and how is this babbie associated with socialism, besides the fact that babbies require it?"

Here are all the answers.

In other news, the mango survived being left all alone for almost a month again. (Not to mention, the tropical weather we're accustomed to in Ohio at this time of year.)

Meanwhile, TCWNN remains behind in West Virginia. He made it this far in life with little apparent human intervention, so I'm sure he'll be fine. And now he has a roof over his head.

Travel Today?

Why not, it's cold and rainy and has to be done.

Whiskey, all you want!

Whoops! Looks like Thers didn't set out any whiskey last night.

Let's see what's in the cupboard.

There was a Republican Debate Summary in Charleston, S.C. last night. Here's a fine summary from whateveritisimagainstit (h/t BDR).

Stephen Colbert puts the overall race into context, and highlights Sweater Vest's couch problem.

As for Pig Newton, Dusty, take it away.

I've thought since the beginning that Mittens would be the gooper nominee. Perhaps "A 25% tax rate for thee, but at most 15% for me" will be a deal-breaker. We might as well enjoy our schadenfreude now.

I hope I'm wrong, but this is my prediction. The banksters and the Military Industrial Commission win, and we lose. As usual.

P.S. Don't tell Thers!

Ginger cat orbs (I don't know what this kitty in the woods...I almost never see cats here on the mountainside).

Paws for alarm

In other news, here's a Pileated Woodpecker, Dryocopus pileatus.

fire and rain

For best results, I recommend playing all the videos at the same time.

Yes, some woodpeckers stopped by today to say, "Hello."
