Go Yanks

I predicted Yanks in six and it looks like they are waiting until game 7 to dash the feeble October hopes for the Red Sox. It was more satisfying to watch the Red Sox Nation get their hopes up before the Yankees drop them to the trash heap of baseball lore. If A-rod can keep his hands to himself in game 7, the Yankees
with head to the World Series.
From GOP and the City (10/20/04)

I will not jinx the Yankees this time by posting any predictions on this weekend's crucial series between the Red Sox and Yankees. Feel free to post your own predictions in the comments section.

Breaking News: New Yorkers Don't Like Bush

Poll of New Yorkers: Bush is a disaster - WCAX (Burlington, VT)
Bush approval new low in Democratic state - Buffalo News
No, this is not a breaking story of gay men taking over New York; it took a poll to find out that apparently people in New York do not like President George W. Bush (gasp). Try not to panic, I'm pretty sure Bush will still carry New York in the 2008 election like he did in 2000 and 2004.

You would think there are stories of dead bodies, dead bodies being raped, people eating dead bodies, and people shooting dead bodies for the media to cover. No?

Can You Hear Me Now?

In a bit of good news from Iraq, that you will not hear from Reuters or the NY Times, US soldiers in Iraq caught 9 terror suspects yesterday.

In one incident, a group of soldiers were approached by an Iraqi citizen. The Iraqi notified the soldiers of a suspicious car parked in his neighborhood. The soldiers searched four men near the car and found bomb-making materials. A fifth man was detained when he acted suspiciously. The soldiers checked the man's cell phone and found a text message that translated into "Thanks for the use of the rocket-propelled grenades". Cindy Sheehan's freedom fighter's are quite polite.

What should you bring with you to protest an anti-war rally?

There are only two things you need to bring with you to an anti-war rally, the right tote bag and trucker hat. As a matter of fact, I happen to have both on sale at my cafepress website right now, see below for details.

Free Palestine Tote Bag
Need something to carry all that deep political literature at the rally? Well then here is a tote bag that will be the talk of the rally and it's only a click away! This tote bag is high quality (imitation hemp) and reads "Free Palestine? Where can I get one".

Anti-War? Trucker Hat
What yells "COOL"? That's right, a trucker hat with a snazzy quote. This particular trucker hat stands out and speaks for itself. Warning: Take caution when approaching some anti-war chicks with this hat.

4th and 10: Pataki Punts IFC

"We must move forward with our first priority, the creation of an inspiring memorial to pay tribute to our lost loved ones and tell their stories to the world," - Gov. Pataki

Who should replace Kofi Annan as UN Secretary General?

You know, if I were asked to choose a potential replacement for Kofi Annan as UN Secretary General, I already know who to call on. From years of watching A&E, there's only one man for the job...Duane "Dog" Chapman.

If you think about it, "Dog" has been working with thugs and criminals for years, Turtle Bay would be like a second home to him; a home away from the trailer, if you like. I'm being dead serious, the UN has Libya on the Human Rights committee for pete's sake, anything's possible over there.

Rangel Is Full of the Wrong Bull

Laura Ingraham pointed out today that he said Bull O’Connor confusing Bull Connor with Caroll O’Connor. - email from Aaron at LLP

Democrat congressman from New York Charles Rangel has made comparisons between President Bush and a racist Democrat mayor from the Civil Rights Era. As Laura Ingraham and one of her listeners pointed out, Rangel used the wrong "Bull" in his slander of the President. Rangel, who is full of Bull, is confused on what Bull to use in his speeches. Laura thinks he meant Caroll O'Connor, but I have my own ideas at who Charlie Rangel was getting at.

Did Rangel mean to compare Bush with Bull from Night Court? Therefore, was Bull a racist? Now, I was a big fan of Night Court and never thought to compare Bush with Bull, nor do I think that Bull was racist; he seemed to work well with both Roz and Mac. I think the only racist on the show was the crabby court officer who smoked all the time.

If Charles Rangel meant to compare Bush with a character from Night Court, well that's just too easy, it has to be Judge Harry T. Stone. Then you could just as easy, compare Bill Clinton to D.A. Dan Fielding. So obviously, Bush is not a racist, Bull is not a racist, and Rangel is stupid.

Brewing Bloomberg Blowout

The latest Marist poll shows that Republican Mayor Mike Bloomberg only has a slim 5 point lead over Democrat Fernando Ferrer, (49-44). Oh, wait... That's among registered Democrats, Mayor Mike's up by 50 points among Republicans (70-20). Overall Bloomberg has a 15 point lead, including an 8 point lead (50-42) among black voters.

"I (Ferrer) was born in the South Bronx and educated in public schools for most of my education" - (9/6)
There was a bit of good news for the Ferrer campaign, Fernando was on the cover of both the NY Daily News & NY Post. Unfortunately it was because he lied on his website, claiming that he went to public school, when he actually went to a private school. This is nothing new, at a Primary Debate, he also claimed his daughter graduated from public school, which is not true.

Campfield: Stuck on Stupid

I wrote about Rep. Stacey Campfield and his attempt to join the TN Black Caucus here. I noted that his request was turned down because "he is white". The same argument was used in Lethal Weapon 2 to rebuff Detective Murtaugh and his desire to travel to South Africa because "he is black".

Campfield had a good argument, he represents a large amount of minorities and he could better serve them if he was more in touch with their needs and issues. Then Campfield went off the deep end and got stuck on stupid.

“My understanding is that the KKK doesn’t even ban members by race,” said Rep. Stacey Campfield, adding that the KKK “has less racist bylaws” than the black lawmakers’ group

Vinny and the Jets

Breaking News
The New York Jets have signed QB Vinny Testaverde , who spent time with the New York Jets from 1998-2003, to replace the injured Chad Pennington.

NY Dems Go Unhinged

Last week Rep. Charles "Doctor" Rangel (D-NY) compared President Bush with Civil Rights villain Theophilus "Bull" Connor, the police commissioner of Birmingham, Alabama who unleashed attack dogs and hoses on civil rights demonstrators.

Not to be out-stupided by Kanye West's anti-Bush diatribe, Rangel and company raced to see who could issue the most bird-brained statement.

Vote below for the most feebleminded comment. I will email the office of the winner with the results.

Rep. Charles "Doctor" Rangel (D-NY)
"George Bush is our Bull Connor....We've gone from fire hoses to levees."

Charles "
I ♥ Castro" Barron (D- Havana)
"I think that's an insult to Connor...A KKK without power is not as bad as a George Bush with power."

Major Owens (D - Brooklyn)
"Bull Connor didn't even pretend that he cared about African-Americans...You have to give it to George Bush for being even more diabolical."

For Sale: Chad Pennington Green Replica Jersey

For Sale: Pennington Jersey - only worn twice!
$40 obo - email me if you are interested

The New York Jets announced the loss of both starting quarterback Chad Pennington and backup Jay Fiedler for the rest of the season. Brooks Bollinger is slated to start, but the Jets have brought in Doug Johnson, Jesse Palmer, and Jonathan Quinn to practice and one might be given the nod to join the team.

All Jets fans can blame me for the loss of Chad Pennington for the rest of the season. It was me who caused you to lose the golden arm of the Green Machine.

A few years ago, I bought a Carl Pickens Tennessee Titans Replica Jersey for my little brother. A couple of weeks later, he was cut by the Titans. A few weeks ago, I purchased a Chad Pennington Replica Jersey to wear to the Jets-Miami game. Fast forward to Monday, Chad is now out for the season and his career is in jeopardy. Sorry Chad, I was just trying to be a fan.

Blogging For Beelzebub

"I will be your David — your mayor. And all the height or money or tattoos won't matter, because God is on my side." - Fernando Ferrer
Every election cycle, you can count on the Democrats decrying the use of the church to deliver political messages, but every election cycle there's always a Democrat on the podium delivering a political message at a church. This weekend was Fernando Ferrer's turn, the Democratic candidate for mayor of New York likened himself to David and Mayor Bloomberg as Goliath and then announced "God" has endorsed him.

Since Fernando Ferrer claims that God is on his side, then who supports Mayor Bloomberg in the spiritual sense? This blog supports Ferrer's opponent and therefore, Beelzebub-endorsed, Mike Bloomberg. Please update your Blogs for Bloomberg icon (right).

Ferrer denied making the comment (go figure), but a NY Post reporter and the church pastor, A'kim Beecham confirmed his comments. I wonder how God feels about Ferrer lying.

The comments came ironically on the same day that Bloomberg met with the Dalai Lama.

Sheehapalooza -vs- Rita

"I am watching CNN and it is 100 percent (Hurricane) Rita...even though it is a little wind and a little is bad, but there are other things going on in this country today...and in the world!!!!" - Cindy Sheehan
As I wrote before, the media have tired of "momma Sheehan" and her asinine gibberish like "Troops out of occupied New Orleans" and now "a little rain". Every time Sheehan opens her mouth, she only hastens her departure from the pages of the same papers who put her on a pedestal to begin with. Nah Nah Nah Nah, hey hey, good bye.

I was trying to find some moonbat coverage on CNN/MSNBC/FoxNews and had to turn to C-span for live feeds from Moonbase Zero. Here's a short recap of every speaker on the slate: Bush is evil, Down with Israel, US out of (insert country here) , we "support" the troops, and Cheney is a poo-poo head. Sorry if I made the speakers sound more intelligent than they actually were. After 10 minutes, I had to turn back to the non-stop Rita coverage because my brain cells started oozing out of my ear just listening to that garbage.

Most Boring Movie, Ever

Scientist have found that lab rats with insomnia who watch the documentary "Inside the Bubble", which follows the Kerry/Edwards campaign through their failed 2004 campaign, are 75% more likely to get a restful nights sleep. PETA has already called for an end to these cruel tests.

Kerryites are also against this film, as it could derail the Kerry 2008 campaign. One Kerry staffer in full spin mode stated, "The 20 poor souls subjected to this movie will be reaching for caffeine and begging for old Lamar Alexander tapes on C-Span 2. Michael Moore has nothing to fear."

It features, among other not-ready-for-prime-time moments, Clinton scowling and rolling her eyes over an apparent Kerry gaffe during a presidential debate; Kerry pretending to interview himself and babbling in Italian while waiting for a real interview to begin; Sen. Joe Biden (D-Del.) cursing at reporters during a campaign stop, and Kerry message guru Robert Shrum confidently declaring a few days before the 2004 election: "Zogby [a prominent pollster] just announced who's gonna win. Us!" - NY Daily News
For those of you who want to check out the movie, it will be playing on Thursday (9/29) at the NY Television Festival, click here for details.

Newsday has an online poll that deals with the debate on the Lower Manhattan Development Corp. and their plan to put the International Freedom Center on the Trade Center site.

Lower Manhattan Development Corp. had asked to be submitted by Thursday, said the Freedom Center would have exhibits dedicated to "the international outpouring of solidarity and sympathy for the victims of Sept. 11"
Bull. The IFC will be a tribute to the "blame America first" crowd and no ammount of sweet talk from the LMDC can hide that fact. Go to Newsday and vote in their poll. From the results so far, it looks like the LMDC's plan is not too popular.

Instapundit's Last Post

New Filthy Lie Assignment: Evil Glenn's Final Post
What would Instapundit's final post look like?

I've been given intimate knowledge from a certain time traveler who I posted about on one of my Tin Hat Tuesdays. Well one day, we were talking about the Red Sox not making the playoffs until 2015 and John Kerry's chances in 20005 when my buddy asked me if I'd like to see when I would get my first Instalanche. Since I've already been Malkinized, Polipunted, AnkleBit, and Slated; being Instapunted was the next big moment as a blogger. So here it is. My first Instalance and Evil Glenn's last post.

Evil Glenn's last post happens to be the post after my first Instalanche. Sure some people would be happy to finally get one after blogging for 21 years. But screw that, I have to wait 21 years and then when I finally get the coveted instalanche, Evil Glenn goes off and dies. I'll probably only get something like 4 hits from it. Heh indeed!

US Troops Out of World Bank!

Can someone explain this for me? Is Cindy Sheehan calling for our troops to pull out of the occupied World Bank? Why is her picture on this story?

I have previously uncovered Yahoo's view of Republicans and their sex lives here.

Corruption Exposed has unveiled a new addition to their website that New Jersey pols hope to avoid. They have created a whole page dedicated to the corruption that permeates the state's political scene.

Too bad "The Torch" is gone; otherwise this could have doubled as his homepage. It's safe to say, even without Torricelli and Mcgreevey, this site will have plenty to write about.

Who's in First? What's in Second?

Yankee fans can let out a collective "sigh" today. With Boston losing and the Yanks winning, a playoff spot looks promising and yet another division title is just around the corner.

Ladies, what's the deal with your obession with Derek Jeter? He's one of my wife's "freebies" and a recent survey showed that Jeter tops the list of men that NY ladies think are sexy. I mean, what does Derek have that most of us New York guys don't? Ladies, don't be shallow. Once you get past the good looks, millions of dollars, and talent...he's a nobody.

Democrats Campaign For 5th Grade Class President

"President Bush" attended a news conference for Michael Bloomberg today in Times Square. Actually, "President Bush" was a volunteer from the New York State Democratic Committee in a Bush mask and they will trail Mayor Bloomberg during the mayoral campaign.

This just goes to show that the Democrats are an absolute joke. What was Republican Michael Bloomberg doing at the news conference today? He was picking up yet another union endorsement the Democrats should have easily had in their pocket.

A poll released today shows that if the masked Bush-man is a registered Democrat, there's a 42% chance he'll vote for Bloomberg. Mayor Bloomberg has also picked up money left and right from some of the top Democratic donors in the city. What does Freddy Ferrer have? An early Halloween costume at best.

This November, the Democrats are bringing a one-legged man to an ass-kicking contest and it a'int going to be pretty.

Disclaimer: The RNC did send a group of volunteers dressed like dolphins to John Kerry rallies. I was against that as well.

The Bell Witch Returns

Note: This is not a political post about Hillary Clinton.

Growing up in Nashville, there's a "dare" we would issue each other. "Go into the bathroom, turn off the lights, and spin around 13 times while chanting 'I do not believe in the Bell Witch'". Supposedly when you turned on the lights you would see her, in the mirror, standing behind you. A reporter was told the same thing while doing a story on the legend.

The story of the Bell Witch dates back to 1817, involved a future president, a man's death, and is still around today in the form of a ghost story told around Boy Scout campfires.

"I’d rather fight the entire British Army than to deal with the Bell Witch" - Andrew Jackson
In 1817, a farmer named John Bell noticed a strange animal in his field. He tried to shoot it, but missed. That evening, the Bell's started hearing a "beating" noise outside their house. They had stirred "The Bell Witch". The witch would torment the family until 1820 when John Bell died of a nervous system disorder. The witch visited the family in 1821 and vowed to return in 7 years. She returned in 1828 and promised to return in 107 years. She has not been heard from since. Her story is one of America's best known ghost stories and was even taught to us in elementary school. I got a chill just writing this post, read the rest of her legend here.

Any Tennessee bloggers that would like to add to this story, please post a comment or email me.

The story of the Bell Witch will soon be released on the big screen in a movie called Bell Witch: The Movie.

What Can You Buy For $1,000,000,000?

Mayor Mike Bloomberg was offered the endorsement of the SEIU Local 1199 and it's 200,000 members but turned it down. The head of the union wanted Bloomberg to add 25,000 home healthcare workers to the city's payroll at a tax-payer cost of $1,000,000,000 in return for the endorsement.

When the Republican mayor turned down the offer, the union president, Dennis Rivera knew who to call. Union-whore and Democratic candidate, Freddy Ferrer glady accepted the endorsement/blackmail of the union. Both denied there was any "specific agreement" between them and if you believe that hogwash, I have a beach-front condo for sale in Montana you might be interested in.

÷ 200,000 (union members)
$5,000 per vote

In other news, Ferrer blew open a 7 point lead over Bloomberg in the latest Quinnipiac University poll. Don't hold your breath, that's among registered Democrats (49-42). Among Republicans, Bloomy has a large 67 point lead over Ferrer. Overall, Bloomberg holds a 14 point lead over Freddy.

The poll also shows that 7% of the people polled would vote for Ferrer because of Al Sharpton's endorsement, 23% would vote against him because of Rev. Al.

Police attack Cindy Sheehan meeting

Anti-war activist Cindy Sheehan was roughed up at a Union Square rally on Monday, not by police officers who broke up the event, but by one of her own supporters.-Newsday

Stop the presses! She was "jostled" and "shoved around" her own supporters. If the media would like to follow me on my commute through the NYC subway system, I will show you some "jostling" and "shoving" that goes on daily on the 7 train. You may even get to see a "push" and a "bump" if you are lucky.

Once again, the media was overzealous in an attempt to make Sheehan look like a tragic victim of "The Man". She ended up looking like a baffoon and this time she didn't have to open her mouth to do so.

From previous reports it seems like that anti-war crowd was pretty violent.

Sheehapalooza Hits Union Square

Anyone who has ever been to Union Square will tell you, no matter what time of day you will always find someone protesting something. The Sheehan caravan arrived in Union Square to a crowd of thousands hundreds a couple hundred anti-war loons. She did her dog-&-pony show and left for a television interview.

In the meantime, police moved in and arrested the rally organizer because he did not have a permit for the use of amplifiers for the rally. The organizer, Paul Zulkowitz, has been arrested three times in the last six months for similar charges. The Sheehan followers then took their anti-war anger out on the police, calling them "stalinsts","facists", and the old favorite "pigs".

An argument also broke out between two protesters over the wisdom of shouting at the police. Lorcan Otway, a Quaker, said he was dismayed by the arrest but said, "Yelling at the cops isn't going to do any good." Richard Degen, a self-described anarchist, told Mr. Otway he was acting weak in the face of an injustice.
Come on guys, give peace a chance.

You Gotta Love Memphis

The Ford family has been in control of Memphis politics for decades. That position seemed to evaporate as State Senator John Ford was arrested for accepting $55k in illegal payments and making 3 death threats against undercover TBI agents, he has since resigned his senate seat.

The voters of Memphis were granted a special election to decide who would represent the 29th district. As usual, there was a Ford on the ballot. Democrat Opelia Ford ran and won her brother's former seat. Her margin of victory was just 12 votes and a recount is underway. Ms. Ford claimed her victory was due to Memphians prefer family tradition, with a straight face she said, "I believe in carrying on family traditions".

Democrat Opelia Ford - 4,332
Republican Terry Roland - 4,320
Independent Robert 'Prince Mongo' Hodges - 89

On a side note, Independent candidate Robert 'Prince Mongo' Hodges claims to hail from another planet. Mongo was ordered to remove "space talking" mannequins from his front yard. Prince Mongo claims, "The mannequins continuously bring me information from my planet. I am from another planet, and I receive information from the mannequin."

In the end, Prince Mongo makes more sense than the voters of Memphis, who have voted to place another Ford in office.
