We know that Al Franken is not terribly popular even with his fellow Democrats, but I never expected that the Vice Presidential candidate of his own party would so viciously attack him:

Joe Biden has questioned Al Franken’s patriotism.

TO: Vast Right Wing Conspiracy
FROM: You Know Who
SUBJECT: Everything is going according to plan

My Dear Minions,
Bwahhh, hah hah hah, oh bwah hah hah heh. To quote the late, great, Hannibal Smith: I love it when a plan comes together. Oh you doubted me. It is all right to admit it, you doubted. Well, what do you think of me now? Bwah hah hah. Heh heh heh.

Everyone was skeptical when I secretly orchestrated the super-delegate surge to Obama, giving him the nomination despite the fact that more Democrat primary voters voted for Hillary (that is right, Obama was selected, not elected. Selected by me! To Lose!).

You said, “Oh, Karl, Obama will be hard to beat, Hillary will be easy”. But I knew better. I had my secret weapon to make Barack crack. I like that: crack Barack. Crack Barack. Barack has cracked. Heh heh heh heh.

I first spotted Sarah on the Wasilla City Council and have been orchestrating her rise ever since, honing her into the perfect weapon to induce insanity in the Democrats. Bwah! And to help them along, I planted the absurd stories – about the Sarah faking her pregnancy (borrowed that from Desperate Housewives! Did they notice? Hah!). I have planted so many Sarah fables that not even the MSM will believe it when the real skeleton in her closet is revealed!

Heh heh heh heh. The Obama camp thinks they can change their fate, but even if you put hair plugs on a pig, it is still a pig!

Defend Sarah, defend me, defend McCain (yes, you must), attack all Obama, ignore Biden etc etc. Do not get cocky … aw, what the hell, go ahead and get cocky!


P.S. I hope you all took my advice and shorted oil at 140.

Stalin is the Word

The Minnesota Independent recently printed an article comparing Alaska Governor Sarah Pallin to Joseph Stalin. The obsessive, yearning tone of the piece immediately reminded me of the 1966 classic by the Association, Cherish.

Here are some alternative lyrics I imagine they're singing around the old editorial desk:

Stalin is the word I use to describe
All the feeling that I have hiding here for you inside
You don't know how many times I've wished that I had told you
You don't know how many times I've wished that I could scold you
You don't know how many times I've wished that I could
Fold you into someone who could
be Stalin as much as Bush is Stalin too

Oh I'm beginning to think that man has never found
The words that could make you obey me
That have the right amount of letters, just the right sound
That could make you hear, make you see
That you are drivin' me out of my mind

Oh I could say I hate you but then you'd realize
That I hate you just like a thousand other liberal guys
Who'd say they hate you, with all the rest of their cries
When all they wanted was to spit on your face, your hands
And spray bleach in your eyes

Fallen is the word that more than applies
To the hope in my heart each time I realize
That I am not gonna be the one to shatter your dreams
That I am not gonna be the one to shatter your schemes
That I am not gonna be the one to shatter what
Seems to be the life that you will lead as
Stalin, as much as I see yours

Stalin is the word I use to describe
All the feeling that I have hiding here for you inside
You don't know how many times I've wished that I had told you
You don't know how many times I've wished that I could scold you
You don't know how many times I've wished that I could
fold you into someone who could
be Stalin as much as Bush is Stalin too

And I do, Cheney too
And I do, Rumsfeld too

Stalin is the word.

A Cougar Worse Than Hillary

Word has it that John Cougar Mellencamp is looking to help Barak Obama solve his problems be rewriting his hit "Small Town" with lyrics to help the Obama campaign. Here is a preview:

Well I was born in a small town
I wish I lived in a big town
Us guys in the small towns
Wish we could organizes communities

We got a mayor in our small town
Cooter, Gomer & Eb can run a real small town
McJobs in the small towns
Provide little opportunity

Educated in a small town
We cling to guns and Jesus in a small town
Used to daydream in that small town
‘Bout how the big city’s the place to be

Can't get arugula in a small town
No hybrid cars in a small town
Married an L.A. doll and brought her to this small town
Now she rightly looks down on me

No I cannot forget the depths that I come from
I know big city people are above me
Just another rube here in this small town
More cosmopolitan is what I want to be

George Bush don’t like the big towns
He unleashed Katrina on a real big town
But New Orleans in its ruin
Is still a better place to be

Well I'm really stuck in a small town
Ain't got much luck in a small town
Gonna die in this small town
‘less I’m sent to Iraq by McCain & Cheney

No I cannot forget the depths that I come from
I know big city people are above me
Just another rube here in this small town
I know that my betters live in DC

Top 11 Thoughts John Hinderaker Shared with the Code Pink Protestors

John Hinderaker was in the Excel arena last night to live blog John McCain's speech. As you would expect from a Pajamas Media credentialed journalist, he was right in the middle of the breaking news:

There were two Code Pink protesters who had to be dragged out. They pulled them up the aisle right next to where I'm sitting. I shared some thoughts with them.

According to sources, here are the Top 11 thoughts he might have shared with the Code Prink protestors:

11) I'm glad you're here. We've all been dying to know what you think about the war.

10) May I suggest you use the nightstick, officer?

9) I have some urine for you to toss right here (ZZZZIP).

8) You are lucky the Big Trunk isn't here, he would deliver to you a proper thrashing!

7) Need a good lawyer? Take my card, please!

6) Where do you get your armpit hair styled?

5) I hear Guantanamo is nice this time of year.

4) You ladies have the boorish manners of a Yalie.

3) With that attitude you're never going to find yourself a husband.

2) Pardon me, do you have any Grey Poupon?

1) That same thing that Dick Cheney said to Patrick Leahy on the Senate floor.

We should invite out good buddy, Sisyphus. Mary Katharine Ham will be at the party and Sisyphus has been an admirer of hers going back to even before he knew how hot she was.

St. Paul:
No, no, it would be funnier to not invite him and then taunt him about it!

Yes, that would be hilarious! Now let’s go push old ladies into puddles!
