    Back when women were women and broomsticks stayed in the hall closet. You know how us old guys are; I kinda like the pointy slip covers.

    Here is Coon’s October Surprise. It is misogynistic and invasive of privacy but fuck it. That’s how they roll.

    [I decided I don’t want to link to this sewage.]

    Here is more on this bought and paid for slime job.

    Readers of today’s first-person account of a sexless one-night stand with kooky Senate candidate Christine O’Donnell might have noticed that the author–whom Gawker cloaked as “Anonymous” –was wearing an actual Boy Scouts uniform in photos accompanying the story about the purported Halloween night encounter three years ago.

    While the man’s identity remains a secret (at least for the time being), TSG has determined that the uniform’s owner is a buddy of “Anonymous” who actually works for the Boy Scouts of America.

    Brad Kurisko, 28, is a district executive with a Boy Scouts council in the Philadelphia area. In the pictures of O’Donnell mugging with “Anonymous,” the nametag on the uniform is obscured with a black bar. This was presumably done to further protect the identity of “Anonymous” and cut off any attempts to ID him via the uniform.

    Which apparently only worked half.

    In a series of phone conversations this afternoon, Kurisko, pictured above, acknowledged that “Anonymous” had worn his Boy Scouts outfit, but claimed that he was unaware that the uniform would be seen in photos published with the O’Donnell story. “I have to go home and kick his ass,” Kurisko said of his buddy, whom he declined to identify. He added, “I had no idea that any pictures existed.”

    Asked if he was involved in the preparation or brokering of the Gawker story, Kurisko declined comment. While denying that he was “Anonymous,” Kurisko refused to identify the story’s author, claiming that TSG was “asking me to throw someone under the bus.” He also refused to answer a question about whether he received money in connection with the story.

    Even NOW can’t stand this shit.

    Sexist, misogynist attacks against women have no place in the electoral process, regardless of a particular candidate’s political ideology.

    Today the tabloid website Gawker published an anonymous piece titled “I Had A One-Night Stand With Christine O’Donnell” that takes the routine sexual degradation of women candidates to a disgusting new low. NOW repudiates Gawker’s decision to run this piece. It operates as public sexual harassment. And like all sexual harassment, it targets not only O’Donnell, but all women contemplating stepping into the public sphere.

    NOW/PAC has proudly endorsed women’s rights champion Chris Coons, O’Donnell’s opponent in the Delaware Senate race, and finds O’Donnell’s political positions dangerous for women. That does not mean it’s acceptable to use slut-shaming against her, or any woman.

    NOW has repeatedly called out misogyny against women candidates, and this election season is no different. Let me be honest: I look forward to seeing Christine O’Donnell defeated at the polls, but this kind of sexist attack is an affront to all women, and I won’t stand for it.

  6. notamobster says:

    Holy shit! NOW? Are you fucking kidding me, NOW even disavowed this shitbag stunt?

    As to the one nighter…was she married? No. Then, who gives a fuck? It’s her business. Who hasn’t woken up with a stranger. Shit happens.

    Plus, she’s hot.

  7. R. D. Walker says:

    Okay, I don’t even want to dignify the O’Donnell smear with commentary but I can’t help it.

    The POS is the story claims he didn’t have sex with her because he was grossed out because she had pubic hair. Well.

    If this is the current state of sexuality of twenty-something year old men in America, the species is doomed. Making a statement like that, it seems to me, is tantamount to “coming out.” It is the most gay thing I have ever heard an ostensibly heterosexual male say.

  8. R. D. Walker says:

    Still waiting to comment on this whole UPS bomb scare. Don’t know what to make of it yet.

    They keep talking about “suspicious” packages out of Yemen. Aren’t all packages out of Yemen suspicious?

  9. Jim22 says:

    The entire thing could be a hoax dreamed up by the WH. A few days before the election they’ll tell us how their diligence saved thousands.

    I don’t trust them.

  10. R.D. Walker says:

    I don’t see how it helps the WH, however. Are you really going to vote for Harry Reid or Chris Coons if we are under a terror attack?

  11. notamobster says:

    I saw this yesterday. I love it. I’m getting it on a t-shirt.

  12. R.D. Walker says:

    Very cool graphic. Timely too. The “devices” on the planes today were apparently meant for Jewish organizations.

  13. shawn says:

    “I don’t see how it helps the WH”

    **During** terrorist actions, people tend to side with the president. Shortly after, they tend to blame him, but this could actually get a surge in undecideds to vote dem.

  14. R.D. Walker says:

    Shawn, I might believe that if Obama was running… maybe. I don’t believe that it helps Feingold or Boxer get a single vote.

  15. 95 FLTC says:

    I was telling the wifey earlier today when it was on the news that it was awful coincidental. (BTW, to me, there is no such thing as coincidence) She then looked at me with understanding in her eyes….I think maybe NOW she’s starting to get the way I think. I told her that muslims the world over have alot to lose if the current crop of islam loving, lily livered and spineless, anti liberty, tax happy, moonbat lovin’, and just plain vile miscreants….then it won’t be as easy to get things geared up to continue their invasion of the american homeland.

    Do I sound paranoid? Oh well…my shit is cleaned, oiled, and sighted in. Bring it.

  16. 95 FLTC says:

    I’m off my meds tonight….heh heh heh

  17. R.D. Walker says:

    Just saw Zombieland. I liked it. It’s violent as hell and good dark humor.

  18. shawn says:

    Saw that a few months ago. Good flick.

    @RD, I think most *reasonable* people have already made up their minds. But this might be the wind that pushes someone over the edge.

  19. 95 FLTC says:

    So….is anyone getting a tatoo of that cartoon? I betcha it’d get rave reviews when I deploy…

  20. notamobster says:

    Is this clip from bizarro world? Bill Maher says he’s afraid muslims are trying to take over the whole world!

  21. Charlottean says:

    I can finally agree with Bill Maher.

    Rally to restore sanity: Potsmokers Unite!

    You’d think they were offering free dubies to anyone who showed up.

    Seriously, how much have things deteriorated in this nation that 2 fake-news comedians draw a crowd like this? Sad commentary on American society that more people care about the circus than care about the congress. I think both Stewart and Colbert are funny. I like that John Stewart isn’t afraid to call both sides on their bs…sign of a good comedian, even if he does bend to the left.

  23. shawn says:

    I have so much HOPE thanks to the “rally to restore sanity”. Seriously!

    Many of these dipshits just drove across the country to get there to be “part of it”, and I’m thrilled, cause you know damn well many won’t make it back in time to vote. :) Hell, there’s a bunch of crap going down right now cause people that were being bussed in still aren’t there! LOL!

  24. 95 FLTC says:

    @shawn…heh heh heh…you’re probably SO right!!!

  25. R.D. Walker says:

  28. R.D. Walker says:

    I wanted to come up with some scathing comment about this photo and the state of affairs it represents but I can’t muster up anything but pity for this poor, misguided man and the attitude he represents. It is just sad.

    A man gets on his knees next to a car carrying U.S. President Barack Obama as he pulls away from Valois restaurant in Chicago, October 31, 2010.

  31. notamobster says:

    I think Bill Maher is a leftist tool. That said: he’s not a “typical” leftist tool who bows down whenever someone says their feminine sensibilities were hurt. I have to respect his willingness to stand by his words. (I can’t believe I’m saying this about Bill Maher…)

  32. notamobster says:

    You economic hounds will LOVE this one from the “rally to restore…umm…dude, where’d you put the bong?” These morons were in DC to fight for their right to remain imbeciles:

    Remember: these things vote!

  33. notamobster says:

    Sarah Palin attacks politico for using “anonymous sources” to attack her: (classic)

    “I suppose I could play their immature, unprofessional, waste-of-time game, too, by claiming these reporters and politicos are homophobe, child molesting, tax evading, anti-dentite, puppy-kicking, chain smoking porn producers…really, they are… I’ve seen it myself…but I’ll only give you the information off-the-record, on deep, deep background; attribute these ‘facts’ to an ‘anonymous source’ and I’ll give you more.”

  34. Locke n Load says:

    Bwahahahahaha!!!! Sarah may just be a BIT too real for the presidency :)

    BTW, for Van and all others concerned: FourLoco hits like a hammer. 2 of these babies would leave the avg man bug-eyed and blistered. I give it a solid thumbs up !

    Early Morning Pep Talk from BMan
    (Inspied by Herb Brooks)

    Great moments are born with great opportunity. That’s what we have here tonight. That’s what we’ve earned here tonight.

    One Election. They’ve won the last couple in the past. But not this election. Not tonight. Tonight we out number them. Tonight, we out vote them and we shut them down because we can! Tonight, we are the greatest political movement in the world.

    You were born to be conservatives. Every one of you. You were meant to be here and vote tonight. This is our time. Their time? It’s done. It’s over. I am so sick of hearing how great the liberals are. Screw ‘em!

    This is our time! Now lets go out there and take it!

  36. Locke n Load says:

    Preach it Bman!
    Why do I think you were headed down this road….

  37. Locke n Load says:

    We few, we happy few, we band of brothers…
    Damn but I loved this play. the movie was pretty damn good too :)

  38. notamobster says:

    “bid them ‘acheive me and then sell my bones’ ….. we are but warriors for the working day!”

  39. R.D. Walker says:

    The old folks who man the polls in my district are reporting that, so far, this is the largest turn out they have ever experienced. Since most of them look to be over 70, that is a big deal.

  40. MadBrad says:

    Most polling places here in Jacksonville, Florida are very busy and have lines even though we set a new record for early voting. Republican turnout among early voters was high.

  41. notamobster says:

    There were lines out onto the sidewalk in my small town.

    I just google news searched “voter turnout”

    all show HIGH turnout!!! I smell a repudiation.

    http://news.google.com/news/search?aq=f&pz=1&cf=all&ned=us&hl=en&q=voter+turnout

  42. MadBrad says:

    The sweet sound of PANIC is coming across my radio. Local news reports low voter turnout while making extensive appeals for people to get out and yet people who have actually voted talk about standing in line for up to an hour. Yeah, there’s low voter turnout… among DEMOCRAPS! If Republicans weren’t showing up the local news wouldn’t have a word to say about it until afterwards.

    Corrine Brown is giving away restaurant gift cards for her peeps who show up.

  43. Bman says:

    So…let me ask you guys something….how do you feel about drivers, gathering people from their homes and taking them to the polls, and being rewarded with the possibility of a large gift for doing so? Say, it was a contest type setting, where drivers were competing with other drivers to bring in the most people. And lets say, the driver who brought in the most voters won…oh I don’t know…say a large flat screen tv. Also, say the drivers were receiving gas cards to reimburse them for hauling the people around.

    Is this integrity and honesty for an election? Mind you, the voters themselves weren’t receiving gifts for voting. Just the drivers. What do you guys think? Would you like to know more?

  44. R.D. Walker says:

    I’d say that we ought to be doing that.

  45. Bman says:

    really?

  46. Locke n Load says:

    i see nothing wrong with it so far. hell, i’d participate,lol.
    that is, of course, assuming they’re all legal registered voters..

  47. Bman says:

    Perhaps, the driver, bribes people to vote by telling them that he will sell the TV and split the cash with them. Is that how we want elections deceided? Just a thought

  48. sortahwitte says:

    I see your point B-man. The big difference is most of us live our lives by the rules of fair play and honesty. The commies, socialists, dims, liberal, progressives, etal? They don’t understand. To them, anything worth having is worth stealing from somebody, anybody, even that guy over there.

  49. notamobster says:

    Bman – what about the bus drivers who are paid by group-x to transport voters to the polls… is that violating the integrity of the election?

    I don’t think it is. I encourage people to vote, regardless of their inclinations, because everyone needs to participate. So long as they aren’t being paid to vote or vote for a specific person, I’m good with it.

  50. Bman says:

    Well, long story short, this is what they are doing today on the Spirit Lake Reservation here in ND. I was up there today for work, in the building that the elections were being held. When I asked an election official about it, she became defensive and asked, “Who are you?” I was sincerely asking. i asked again, and she stated that they were (the drivers) receiving gas cards but didn’t mention a TV for the top voter-round-up. I was more polite than normal. She then rudely asked me if I wanted the name and lawyer who could answer my questions, which I politely accepted.

    Upon leaving, another election official followed me out to my work car and took a picture of my license plate (they are special-type plates…not that it matters) Why would he do this?

  51. Bman says:

    Nota, you have a point there. But the whole idea of having a contest is pretty fishy and tacky to me. Maybe I’m just acting a little off today, nerves and all….

  52. R.D. Walker says:

    I think it is pretty tacky but I am usually pretty resistant to new rules that restrict currently legal behavior. If they are rounding them up at gun point, I would object. If they are buying their votes, I would object. If they are just electioneering, this doesn’t seem that different from other types of electioneering to me.

    I hear you Bman, I just can’t stand the thought of politicians making yet another fucking law trying to manage the behavior of free people. Sure as shit, they would find a way to make it benefit liberals at the expense of humans.

  53. notamobster says:

    That is clearly an attempt at intimidation. I would have had serious trouble not freaking-the-fuck-out on the guy who was following me to my car! I SERIOUSLY don’t deal well with people trying to bully me. I’m raging mad just thinking about it happening to you. I fucking HATE bullies!

  54. R.D. Walker says:

    Fuck ‘em Bman. Following you out to the car is punk ass shit. They had no call to do that. I hate that crap.

  55. Bman says:

    Yea, Im just gonna drop it. Maybe im way overreacting. I certainly didn’t feel welcome after asking a simple question to the election official. Maybe thats what Im reacting to

  56. Bman says:

    It happened gang. I was in my car on the phone, getting ready to leave, and a guy standing 5 feet behind my car, flipped open his phone, snapped a pic, and went on his way. NOW can you see why I feel the way I do right now? I was just there for my routine, weekly visit for my job to the place….If I wasnt in my work car, I would have said something. I thought better of it though. I’m sure I wouldve been arrested for voter intimidation

  57. Locke n Load says:

    Too bad you didn’t have your own camera Bman. You could have turned around and taken a picture of him as he took a picture of your car :)
    regarding the Native vote I’m always a bit baffled. If they live in their own “nations”, are exempted from all taxes, and have their own police jurisdiction we generally can’t mess with, by what right do they get to vote? I mean what kid of citizenship IS that? I remember lots of stories when I lived in Kansas about the Native vote being bought with bottles of booze and the majority of the voters not even being registered. I’m sure it still goes on.

  58. Bman says:

    American Indians have duel citizenship; US and whatever Tribe they belong to.

  59. RJM says:

    I’m amazed how little piss ants are given a little authority and then interpret it there own way. Then people that don’t know, believe there shit. I tend to politely but firmly ask them to tell me where it’s written and to please show me. Pisses them off everytime!

  60. Locke n Load says:

    I wonder then, do other dual citizens have the right to vote in THIER countries as well? England? Canada? Thats just stupid. Fuck

  61. Bman says:

    By the way, here’s a little tidbit for ya’s. In ND you don’t register to vote. How do you like them apples?

  62. notamobster says:

    Luckily we don’t have any of those shenanigans here. Mostly conservative working folks. I took the wife to vote this afternoon. (I voted early a.m.) and the folks were excited to dee my wife voting for the first time in her life! The old man asked if I needed a ballot. I told him “You kidding me? I’ve been waiting for this day for two years – I voted before the sun came up.”

    He said “me too, glad to hear it.”

  63. R.D. Walker says:

    In fairness to Bman, it isn’t like NoDak is part of the moonbat fever swamp.

  64. Bman says:

    Not at all RD and thank Christ for that!

  65. notamobster says:

    Where’s that open thread, Sir?

  66. Air Force Brat says:

    Many thanks for the kind thoughts on the last thread, which I was referred to by someone I owe a drink or two to (you know who you are, sir). It’s been a rough period, what with cases going to trial, getting settled, being mediated, etc. Doesn’t help much to have one woman there who has had it in for me since Day One. She looks like the butt-end of a troll, and that may be what her motivation is.

    Sortahwitte: You know how to warm a gal’s heart!

    Locke N Load: Did I buy a semi, as in truck? Nope — but since learning that you drive one, I’ll never be able to flip off a trucker again as long as I live. As for “semi” as in “semi-auto”, got one o’ those, yes indeedy.

  67. Air Force Brat says:

    Clarification: The “sir” in my post isn’t the same “sir” as in Nota’s. Although both “sirs” are to be respected.

  68. Locke n Load says:

    wb hun. now kick back with a drink and let the past few years slide off yer shoulders

  69. shawn says:

    I’ve been living in this small community in CA for almost 9 years, and voted in every election. NEVER has there been a line or even more than a couple people voting at once, though there were always 2 or 3 seats setup for filling out the ballot.

    Today, I stood in line. There were TEN seats, and they were ALL full. And based on my experience here, they’re almost exclusively conservatives. Whoo-hoo!

    The party of “hell no” is speaking loud and clear.

  70. notamobster says:

    hmmmm…………

  71. notamobster says:

    After more than an hour of Obama refusing to admit that last night was a repudiation of his policies…he finally admitted it, though only tacitly-

    “I wouldn’t recommend that all future Presidents take a shellacking like I did last night!”

  72. R.D. Walker says:

    So I guess this means that Republicans and their Slurpees do get to sit in the front seat, huh?

    Coconut plot foiled by Indian government!

    _______________________

    (BBC) — Officials in the Indian city of Mumbai (Bombay) have taken extraordinary measures to protect US President Barack Obama ahead of his visit. In their effort to provide maximum security in the run-up to his visit on Friday, they have removed coconuts which may fall on his head from trees.
