Odds And Sods

A brief assortment of Internet ephemera that’s hopefully more entertaining than enervating:

Sustainable Development Eschewed: “How come the Left always preaches ’sustainability’ or ‘it’s for the children’…until it comes to their economic plans?”

Media Escapism: “You now things are tough in the news business when journalists form their own support group on Facebook.”

The Last Supper: More eschatological imagery. Fortunately, it’s not 1996; no comparison to Altman’s Last Supper homage in M*A*S*H and its climactic aftermath is necessary.

Fire up the Obama-prompter: “The White House is looking to install a small video or computer screen into the podium used by the president for press conferences and events in the White House.” All hail President Burgundy!

High-Speed Stimulus: The “Desire Named Streetcar” goes into warp drive.

What’s the matter with Kansas? About the same as what’s wrong with Oregon and California.

Obama Like Gandhi? That’s what the New Yorker claims. Hey, if you say so, fellas.

Obama Like Gipper? ” How can Americans believe red and vote blue?”

A Random Observation:Let me get this straight. The Pork Package was too important to actually read, debate, or let the public see before Congress approved it. But not so important that it couldn’t wait a few days for President Obama to sign it at a big campaign rally event in a swing state.” Maybe–what are the restaurants like there?

Judd Joins Mining Protest: Why is the Hollywood actress and Obama supporter trying to slow her president’s economic recovery?

2000 Points Of Light: Imagine the howls from the legacy media if President Bush had presided over a 2000 point stock tumble from election in November to mid-February, as the “Stimulus Bill Sedates Market To Lowest Levels Since November.” (And as we mentioned before, the Dow was over 12,000 when the New New Deal was first whispered.)

Cheer Up!‘The worst is yet to come,’ according to Howard Davidowitz, chairman of Davidowitz & Associates, who believes American’s standard of living is undergoing a ‘permanent change’–and not for the better.”
