Today on Tommy T’s Obsession with the Freepi – Circling the drain

Well, another week has come and gone – and the Freeperati are milling in circles like Borg cut loose from the hive mind. If it were anyone else, I’d feel sorry for them, but as it stands, I’m just going to have to shoot them metaphorically dead from a bushplane.

Is Alaska Gov. Sarah
Palin running for vice president of the United States or vice president of the
student council?
Listening to some political strategists, pundits and radio
and TV blowhards, you would think that all she has to do is show up, sign her
name on the roll, and she’s done enough to satisfy the requirement for
Do people really and truly understand that she will be sitting a
heartbeat away from the presidency, backing up a 72-year-old guy who has a
history of cancer?

Fair question. Unless you have rabies.

And if she “puts up” the media will either ignore it or they
will spin it as if she failed miserably. So, who cares what they have to

Once those Negri bodies show up in tests, the only thing left to do is put them down, or make them contributors at Pajamas Media.

Funny, when I see a screen name like “Dr. Ursus”, I think of a singularly clueless Orangutan.

Roland Martin, is an Obama “bro”! So what else would we expect
from him. Inasmuch as we now have a black man on the verge of the POTUS isn’t it
time we start doing away with affirmative action?

“On the verge of the POTUS”?? Is that anything like being “on the verge of the Supreme Court”?

You know, maybe I’ve been reading too many of Athenae’s posts, but I’m less and less inclined to look at these challenges to evolution as political opponents, than I am to look at them as a cancer on the body politic.

White House Won’t Support House GOP’s
Alternative Financial Plan

With Senate
passage of a revised financial bailout in sight, the White House rejected
considering a more free market alternative proposed by House Republicans.

The alternative plan, announced Tuesday by Rep. Jeb Hensarling (R-Texas),
chairman of the Republican Study Committee (RSC), replaces the $700 billion
bailout package aimed at easing the credit crisis with a plan to federally
insure mortgages up to 100 percent.
The current plan, supported by President
Bush, would allow the Treasury Department to purchase the troubled mortgages and
mortgage-backed securities, which are at the heart of the ongoing credit crisis.

Nonetheless, insurance is part of the revised proposal being considered by
the Senate Wednesday, White House spokesman Tony Fratto said.
“It is
mandated in the bill that if the Treasury puts in place the asset purchase, it
must also put in place a guarantee plan,” Fratto told after the
White House press briefing Wednesday.
“I know the RSC wants only the
insurance option and not the purchase option. We disagree with that and believe
that the purchase program needs to be part of the solution here,” Fratto said.

This looks like a matter that could use some well-reasoned debate, no?
