No Runny Eggs

The repository of one hard-boiled egg from the south suburbs of Milwaukee, Wisconsin (and the occassional guest-blogger). The ramblings within may or may not offend, shock and awe you, but they are what I (or my guest-bloggers) think.

The Morni…er, Afternoon Scramble – 1/12/2009

by @ 17:35 on January 12, 2009. Filed under The Morning Scramble.

I’m a bit under the weather, which explains the lateness. How about some Jimmy Buffet to make up for that?

  • John Hawkins presents the 7th Annual Right Wing News Conservative Blogger Awards.
  • Moe Lane wonders what Sen. Bernie Sanders (Socialist-VT) will do to scratch his BDS itch when President Bush is gone.
  • Tom McMahon 4-blocks skills and intentions.
  • Jim Geraghty wonders who is left in the GOP who’s willing to fight. I believe the answer is, “Nobody.”
  • Allahpundit found the expiration dates of Barack Obama’s words have expiration dates – it seems he won’t even wait until the 21st to order Club Gitmo closed even if the order will be slow-played.
  • Ed Driscoll gives the presstitutes’ honeymoon with Obama 4-8 years. The only reason why it won’t be longer is because the “to 10 years” portion of Obama’s Presidency can’t happen.
  • Matthew Continetti finds Newsweek has lached onto Red China as the last, “best” hope of Communism to take over the world.
  • Kevin Fischer gets results – the 2-week “MJS Scorecard” is now all even at 4 pieces apiece. Money says they’ll slip back to their customary 3-1 liberal bias presently.
  • Jon Ham found the next bailout participants – NPR and PBS. Never mind they already get $400 million a year in tax money; they want it more than doubled. I’ll spell out the proper answer – November Oscar.
  • Jim Hoft found anti-Semitism very alive and well among the police in Duisburg, Germany. I’m surprised they, or the Islamokazis they were appeasing, didn’t leave a burning calling card.
  • John points out the fallacy of “cease fires in the name of peace”.
  • Back to bailouts for a second – Stephan Tawney is shocked, SHOCKED that Chrysler wants $3 billion more now (a 75% increase in what it got last month) and an unspecified amount for its finance arm.
  • Nick Schweitzer proves the difference between a private enterprise and a public venture on his and his girlfriend’s way back from Cancun. Those two have lousy timing – they’re back just in time for some serious cold.
  • Mark Tapscott has the latest bit of evidence that closed-door government is unhealthy for the taxpayers.
  • Rob reports the big screen TV ban is about to hit Not-So-Great Britain. For those that don’t think it can’t happen here, I seem to recall an item the other week about California wanting to ban big-screens.
  • Bill Quick offers the perfect solution for safety nannies.
  • Jib dug up the origin of the penalty flag. I can only wonder what would have happened to Orlando Brown if the flags were still weighted with lead.

A couple of housekeeping items that I’m a part of:

- If it’s Monday, the gang at Blogs.4Bauer is live-blogging.
- The January edition of Drinking Right is tomorrow, same place as always (Papa’s Social Club, 7718 W Burleigh in Milwaukee), same time as always (7 pm).
