Friday Morning Open Thread

I started to write a post, hated it, deleted it, now I got nothing.

You’ll have to settle for this until I find inspiration.

BTW – Lawrence O’Donnell is human excrement.

    Us Mag Headlines Cost of Ann Romney’s Dress, Buries Higher Cost of Michelle’s

    Us Magazine had a little tidbit of gossip when it discovered who made Ann Romney’s and Michelle Obama’s hot pink dresses worn to the recent presidential debate. In its headline Us blares that Ann Romney’s dress cost “$1,690.” But Michelle Obama’s ensemble was priced at $3,290 despite the silence of the headline.

    To be fair, MO’s outfit required quite a bit more fabric.

    • So it’s not just Lawrence O’Donnell who is excrement….

      But Ann just wore what she always wears around the house. She’ll probably wear that dress a hundred times or more. So it was a good investment.

      • myiq2xu says:

        I don’t care if she wears an outfit once and then throws it away.

        It’s THEIR money. They can spend it any damn way they please.

        Nobody complains about the cost of the outfits movie stars wear.

        • elliesmom says:

          I don’t care what she spends on her clothes, either. The “wears it around the house” was one of Romney’s one-liners last night. I would really like to have that particular dress in my closet,though. Ann Romney has a lot of style. I hope she sets some fashion trends as First Lady.

          Her clothing is age and figure appropriate. She is not trying to be something she isn’t namely young and trendy. She is fine with being a mature woman as she should be.

      It’s really about the selective reporting, isn’t it?

      They bashed Hillary in the primaries for voting for the wars. Without, of course, bashing Joe Biden for doing the same.

      The View bashed Ann Romney for none of her boys serving in the military, without knowing or admitting that Joe Biden never served in VietNam—took 5 deferments.

      They bash Romney for having investments overseas, knowing his assets are in blind trusts that he doesn’t control. But they won’t report that Obama’s assets are also in a blind trust, whose trustees invest overseas, especially in China.

      They think they’re fooling their viewers, but I think, this time around, the public is sick of it all. Bout time, eh?

    Here is some positive news:

    Big Apple voters have deflated Alec Baldwin’s fantasy of running for mayor.

    A new NY1-Marist College poll found 66 percent would prefer that Baldwin (below) stick to acting and stay out of the 2013 City Hall race. Eighteen percent urged him to jump in, while 16 percent were unsure.

    Baldwin, a star of NBC’s hit comedy “30 Rock,” has been musing about a possible mayoral run for at least two years.

    But he should think again.

    He scored even lower in the poll than scandal-scarred former Rep. Anthony Weiner, who was scorned by 58 percent of voters, and former Gov. Eliot Spitzer, nixed by 57 percent.

    Just turned on MSNBC to hear them (still) talking about “binders” and FOXNews were talking about the TDS comment “losing four Americans is not optimal”. I wonder just how long it will be before Mika et al will mention that little gaffe. I’m not willing to watch to find ut.

    • insanelysane says:

      Obama was stiff and very BORING on TDS. IT was as if you would pull a string and Obama spouts one of his overused phrases. He wasn’t funny or charming…just cliche ridden and predictable. I was embarrassed for him!

    ‘Apprentice 007 : UK eyes 18 year olds – How’s this for a job title – secret agent’s apprentice? The British govt. is recruiting teenage apprentice spies and codebreakers without university degrees in a bid to deepen the talent pool of its intelligence services for the era of cyberterrorism and cyberwarfare. Foreign secretary William Hague announced the programme on Thursday in a speech at Bletchley Park, Britain’s World War 2 code-breaking headquarters. “Young people are the key to our country’s future success, just as they were during the war,” Hague said. “It will be the young innovators of this generation who will help keep our country safe in years to come against threats which are every bit as serious as some of those confronted in World War 2”. The foreign office said that the apprenticeship programme aims to find up to 100 new recruits for GCHQ – UK’s electronic surveillance agency – and the MI5 and MI6 and intelligence services. The programme will be open to bright 18 year olds with backgrounds in science, technology, engineering and computer gaming. They will undergo a 2 year course of university classes, technical training and work placements before starting full-time jobs. High-school students will also be invited to take part in a ‘national cipher challenge’ competition intended to inspire pupils to consider careers in mathematics and cybersecurity. The foreign office said that the goal was to “harness the expertise of its young people, who have grown up with a world of social media, global connectivity and interactive gaming, to make sure we can tackle the threats and challenges of the 21st century”. Hague also said that the govt. was donating $630,000 toward restoration of Bletchley Park, a complex of buildings and wooden huts northwest of London, where hundreds of mathematicians, cryptologists, crossword puzzle experts and computer pioneers worked to crack Nazi Germany’s secret codes’. – Good to see the UK invest in their young for a secure future. Catching them bright and young is brilliant.

    ‘No smiling in New Jersey driver’s license pic – A ban on smiling in driver’s license photos in New Jersey is being frowned upon by the state’s voters. More than 6 in 10 New Jersey voters think the ban is a bad idea, according to a Quinnipiac University poll’. Well, duh.

  6. Re: Romney and the Al Smith dinner. I was thinking “Alinsky Rule #13 with a soft delivery and a smile.”

    It certainly must not feel good to the Vile Progs to have the tables turned in such an affable manner!

    Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it.

    Geek spy school. Very, very kewl.

    The operational, intelligence and political fiascos that led to and followed the September 11 jihadist assault on the US Consulate in Benghazi, Libya, all derive from the same problem – the failure of US President Barack Obama’s conceptual framework for understanding the Middle East.
