The Ridiculous and Beyond

The Dems are ranting and raving over the bonuses paid to AIG execs, but it seems that the loudest of the bunch was complicit in the whole deal. After previously denying any involvement in writing the controversial provision, Dodd admitted on CNN that he inserted a loophole in the stimulus legislation that allowed million-dollar bonuses to insurance giant AIG to go forward.
Dodd told CNN’s Wolf Blitzer,“We wrote the language in the bill, the deal with bonuses, golden parachutes, excessive executive compensation that was adopted unanimously by the United States Senate in the stimulus bill. But for that language, there would have been no language to deal with this at all.”

Of course, Dodd lied earlier and said he had no role in writing the controversial language and was not a part of the conference committee that inserted the language in the bill. His spokeswoman continued to lie for him up until he made the full confession on CNN.

Of course, nothing is heard about the big bonuses being paid out to the Freddie and Fannie execs either; you know, the one that Barney “spittle lips” Frank’s boyfriend has a hand in.

I wonder what Ron Silver would think of the AIG bonuses. He'd have some original take, I am sure, and perhaps would even propose re-opening the bonuses paid to Franklin Raines and Jamie Gorelick for their yeoman's work running Fannie Mae into the ground and then collecting bonuses of $90 million and $24.7 million, respectively. I guess we will never know. Ron Silver died of cancer last Sunday.
The lies keep getting deeper and deeper and better and better, or is it worse and worse? It seems the Chief Occupier must have given the orders to cover Dodd’s butt since he is in deep doo, so now…
Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner told CNN that his department asked Sen. Chris Dodd to include a loophole in the stimulus bill that allowed bailed-out insurance giant American International Group to keep its bonuses.
Can you believe all this stuff! It’s falling apart, and the inexperienced clowns can’t seem to keep it together. It actually is beginning to remind me of Humpty Dumpty, and you know the end of that story, only in this era it will be … “and the Chief Occupier and all his clowns could not put Humpty together again.”

Meanwhile, the Chief Occupier plays sports prognosticator by picking the Final Four in the NCAA hoops playoff. You know he’s an expert on such since he plays some pickup with the boys in da hood.
To further detract from the fact that he and many other Dems knew about the bonuses, he is going on Leno’s show and playing comedian! He should have taken Joe “blow” Biden with him, and they could have continued their clown act. Guess he thinks that will keep the news quiet that he and Chucky Schumer received loads of cash from AIG for their election coffers.
OOOHH, nothing about that in the LSM, was there? I got it from the Australian newspaper yesterday. Strange how the LSM seems to forget to report any of the real news.

Well, so far, it seems the great plan put forth by the IIC to make Disabled Vets use insurance to pay for their care is “dead in the water,” at least for now. Stay alert because you can be assured that Obumler will attempt to have it slipped into one of his upcoming Stimulus crockola bills. When he figures he can’t get his way, he goes stealth. So stay ALERT.

ZIMBABWE President Robert Mugabe has called for foreign aid to revive his nation's shattered economy and urged Washington and Brussels to end "cruel" sanctions on his inner circle.
"I, on behalf of the inclusive government and the people of Zimbabwe, say, friends of Zimbabwe, please come to our aid," Mr. Mugabe said at the launch of a new economic recovery plan prepared by the month-old unity government.

"To the European Union and the United States, I appeal for the removal of your sanctions, which are inhumane, cruel, and unwarranted."
Rest assured that "the One" will be right on it, sending a few trillion or so to his "friend" in Africa.

Take executive pay. Add a large dollop of falling share prices and months of rising unemployment. Mix in political grandstanding. Bake until red hot.

The Rudd Government is clearly keenly attuned to the populist politics of sensitive issues.

Did you ever wonder if perhaps there was some “cloning” going on with political characters? Seems the Chief Occupier, Rudd in Australia, and Gordon Brown in GB are all reading from the same playbook. If there was, count on George Soros being the puppet master behind the scheme.

Speaking of Soros:
George Soros is having a very good crisis. Other investors are wilting, political power structures are being upended, and market economists are scrambling to fashion new theories, but the world's most famous speculator is having a belated heyday.

"It is, in a way, the culminating point of my life’s work," the 78-year-old says in his heavy Hungarian accent during an interview at his London mansion. "The American election, the financial crisis, the theory of reflexivity, so it is actually a very stimulating period."
Yep, he got his sock puppet in the WH, screwed up the economy just enough to create a false crisis, got his sock puppet reading the daily topic from a teleprompter to keep it inflamed, and this SOB is having the time of his life.
In August 2007, with the first symptoms of the credit crunch on the horizon, Soros came out of semi-retirement to reassume control of his Quantum investment fund, astutely repositioning it for the tsunami about to hit. By year’s end Quantum was up almost 32 percent for 2007, netting Soros profits of $US2.9 billion at a time when other financiers were struggling to break even.
Did you notice that gas prices went up again this week? Blame Bush and Cheney! Oops can’t do that; they are not in charge anymore.
Well, you can thank the IIC and his Treasury gang, since they decided in order to cover all of the checks they have written in the past couple of weeks, they need to print a Trillion dollars worth of new money.
I wonder when the Zombies who voted for this IIC will wake up and realize what a mistake they have made?

Even more ridiculous ...
The same idiots in Congress who left the barn door open so AIG could get the bonuses (that would be Chris Dodd, and you read about his move above), have now decided that after the door is slammed shut they will tax the checks to the tune of 90%. Now that’s what I call working hard to recover the money. Oh, well, since they forgot to print that much extra cash, they figure they have to do something. I hope they get sued until the cows come back home.
I am betting it won’t stand the Constitutional test.

Well, that’s just the surface of the ridiculous and beyond that has occurred this week in the National Swamp known as Washington, DC. I hope you have enjoyed reading this as much as I have enjoyed putting it together.

Dallas,

Well done. Nice roundup of the silliness circus. The Imposter can't break away from his campaign mode as you may have heard he will be a guest on a late night comedy show in California tonight.

Meanwhile the laugh a minute carnival still goes on back in our nations's Capital. For instance the cap and trade progam originally estmated by this very administration to cost $600 billion.. well hold on to your light switch ..new cost .....
Two Trillion !!!

The sense of moderate and conservative blogs is absolute disgust. You wrote, "Can you believe all this stuff! It’s falling apart, and the inexperienced clowns can’t seem to keep it together."

It would seem that the experienced clowns can't either. We have always distrusted government; it was what our founding fathers instructed us to do. And this reinforces two important ideas: (1) Our Constitution doesn't require modification by revisionists, and (2) Our founding fathers knew what they were talking about.

Woke up today and read Scott Johnson of Powerline painting this dreary and dark picture. Sadly I couldn't find any reason to disagree with him.

Why I Am Depresed

Let's skip to his concluding sentence to give you idea what he and many of us are thinking.

"I am depressed because the president of the United States is a fool who will immiserate us, render us wards of the state and lose us our life and liberty to those who understand what they are about."
