John Thune delivers the weekly Republican address. Talks about health care:
I love Jonathal Alter’s snarky piece about healthcare:
Bev, that Alter piece is a hoot! Thanks.
Alter’s column was so consistently a reflection of status quo commentary, paragraph by paragraph, that I thought he’d been recording the conversations of my “change nothing in healthcare” neighbors. I agree with TempeBev that Alter’s column was really snarky…. if snarky is a compliment then I assure you that my out-of-the-ordinary neighbor, TempeBev, is also pretty snarky, too!
Bev has a neighbor? Spill with some dish!
Brian, et.al. If I dish about the dish TempeBev I would have to smudge up her present level of tantalizing and useful anonymity. My paltry descriptions could never do her justice.
Must admit I have admired T. Boone (Bone) Pickens efforts on behalf of wind energy but also admire Franken’s accosting him about Swift Boat ads. Was not aware Pickens had such a money hand in the SB ads.
I don’t know who MesaDon is, but I have an idea.
Will the mystery quest enter and sign in please.
Exclusive! Sarah and Todd Palin are Splitsville!
boring suburbia report here….the police have been here once….next time a ticket……..I am too old to care.
My kids (at this party) are straight edge…no drugs, get great grades, and some lonely ass idiot called the cops.
I think I hate people.
Someone called the cops on your kids? Who? I want their name and address!
me too the funny thing is…I asked the police station and they would not tell me who complained….they said if it got to a “sitation” then I would know.
“F” suburbia…so so so un-likable
when I was young, there were drunks up and down the street….all they, the neighbors, cared about was that I clean up the mess afterwards.
My parents would say , “tell the cops we are out of town”
You remind me of when I was a kid and used to sneak out my mother’s car. Here comment, “If you ever get caught you’re on your own”.
yeah fuck the burbs!
First person who tells me to put money in the curse jar gets it right between the eyes.
lol …..good thing…..I don’t believe in “curse jars”….lol
So just how noisy were the kids and who calls the cops on kids this early in the day?
Brian, what are you doing around the end of Aug? I think I am driving up there….we could meet for like 2 shots and a beer, or ice tea….
two piece live band ….drums and guitar….that’s all
a bunch of losers around here
it’s okay when the drunk guy yells and hollers but a band…..shut them down
I’ll be around, definitely shots, screw the iced teas!
” and some lonely ass idiot called the cops.”
Sra Burrito, I think you nailed it. Some miserable people can’t handle others having fun.
next time that dog barks or that leaf blower blows……f them
fbog….what an interesting persona
you have any thoughts as to who it is?
wow, I didn’t even remember calling them a lonely “ass” how perfect, when I read that I thought “yeah that’s it.”
I still hate people
none….I told everyone near by and most are out of town….so I did my best to be a “good” neighbor
Take Brian to McSorley’s for some of their ale, soda crackers, onions, Limburger cheese, and their trademark mustard.
I have live here 11 years……3 teenagers and NO trouble….f them
I think I shall if he dares
And here I was wondering who the hell this fbog is.
oh come on…. I knew who he was in a nano second
the only thing more interesting then reality is obscurity…..
Tis me. fbog is my alter ego.
I hope the kids at your party learned that being a grumpy old person is not something to aspire to.
They learned …..turn the music up……….Ray’s mom is on our side..
I wasn’t even a hippie….but I think I would have excelled there
i know it tis you….lol…I hope you are well
so when the police came I gave my maiden name , because my asshole brother is a council man….can you see why I hate suburbia……………………………………………………………………….
If you weren’t a hippie you must have the chick in the wet tshirt.
“because my asshole brother”
Ah the love of a sibling, nothing quite like it!
I wish…..I am some in between the “coke”generation, and disco era…..I think those are out of order….but what do you expect?
I had you figured for the Pepsi generation.
if I send graduation announcements out…you know the really nice stationary and all…..telling about the future and the goals…..what do you think?
one side of the family …is proud , sends gifts…..
the other side….. the idiot side… that are my siblings(in town)….f’ing nothing…nada….zip zadda
The mistake you made was not inviting us to the party. Your wacko neighbor would be putting up a “for sale” sign the next day 😉
when i say coke , i dont mean soda
dnd …i would have loved for that to happen….
oh that kind of coke, I’m not really very familiar with it, I’ll defer to you on that one.
silly man…….shut up……you can’t fool me
the mistake I made was……..seriously believing that life was easy…….
That is what has mess with me the most……because it’s not…..and that sucks….so when you find fun….
it’s a good thing!
so who is planning the first back channel get together?
The conspiracy theory is that some neighbor can’t deal with how gorgeous Sra Burrito is. Women can be mean that way…
lo dnd…..lol……so funny….you make laugh..but you need to get to NYC..come on
I think the BC should do a meet an greet
dnd can you travel?
I thing that NYC offers the best opt
None of you are staying here!
Who the hell wants your noisy brats under foot!
I’m taking the boys to the park, nighty night.
Top of the day peeps?
Michelle Malkin joined the panel on This Week. That’s like inviting Rush Limbaugh or Glen Beck or Ann Coulter.
A new low for This Week.
You beat me too it. I was just going to comment on This Week having that Racist, Bigot Malkin on with George.
How much lower can MSNBC sink?
Well only time will tell I guess, but they sure can’t sink much lower now IMHO.
MSNBC? This Week is not an MSNBC show.
Y0ur right of course Brian.
Larry Summers on MTP. There’s something reassuring listening to a brilliant economist who probably has gravy stains on his tie.
I don’t know if Malkin is a racist or a bigot. But she’s an awfully bad liar, which is surprising considering how much practice she gets.
Damn! I missed Burrito last night! 😦
Why does Al Hunt, longtime ACTUAL journalist and former Washington bureau chief for the Wall Street Journal, have to share roundtable space with Michelle Malkin, known for her perky video cheerleading routine spelling out “Loser”?
ABC could have gone with Dan Drezner or any number of conservative-leaning bloggers who have lots more to add to a real discussion.
PS: enjoyed the overnight dialogue re Burrito and her kids’ party. Good to see her back.
The conspiracy theory is that This Week wants to make Republicans look like a bunch of loonies by having Malkin on the panel.
Or maybe that’s all that’s left of the Republican base…
nanny how was your weekend at Lake George? (My parents spent their honeymoon at Lake George)
However, dnd, other side might be legitimizing Malkin. Being on This Week is a sign of having arrived, in a sense.
We had a great time, Brian. We went with my friend Julia and her kids, one of whom is my grandson’s best friend.
Has anyone else been following the march [slither]of gigantic pythons into Florida? I hadn’t, but finding a 17 foot, 204 pound snake on one’s property would get your attention.
And our biology lesson for the day: merely bludgeoning OR decapitating the snake does not dispatch it humanely. You have to do both. A python’s body can function for 40 minutes after death, and feel pain as well.
(Clicking on the second link takes you to Miami Herald stories on the python topic. First link didn’t have picture of the python. First story mentions python’s body was still moving as they were assembling for the photo.)
Good to hear, nanny. Lake George sounds beautiful; am sure you and kids had fun.
I’ve never understood why anyone would keep a snake as a pet, boringggggggggggggggggggg
PS: it’s Shark Week!
I’m not that fond of sharks either, never understood the fascination some people have for them.
Yeah, snakes don’t do it for me, either.
Turtles will interact with you. They get frantic about possibly getting fed.
A Miami Herald commenter wrote that the pythons’ prevalence north of the Everglades may be proof of global warming. That previous freezes every 2-3 years killed them off (in younger form), whereas he or she didn’t recall a freeze since 1992.
No idea if this idea has merit — and do intend to fact-check it. But interesting.
You are probably safe from ocean sharks in Manhattan.
Financial sharks, though …
Here is an interesting article about the H1N1 pandemic:

Lou Dobbs A “Publicity Nightmare” For CNN: AP
I’m surprised that no one informed Ms Malkin that to qualify for unemployment, you have to be actively be searching for a job and be able to prove it. Unemployment isn’t welfare. Or that those on unemployment are spending every dime they get, thus boosting the recovery. The looks on the panel’s faces was similar to family members of a scatterbrained relative after the relative says something completely unappropriate.
My guess is that Cynthia Tucker, Jerry Seib and Al Hunt took George Stephanopoulos aside and said: “Look asshole, if you ever book us with this nutbag again, we’ll never come back to your show.”
I suspect Stephanopoulos has long grown immune to the effects of being called an asshole.
dnd: re 4:10: agreed, but he’s got them, being one of the 3 network poliporn shows.
Maybe the Malkin episode was a thought experiment not to be repeated …
I love your phrase “poliporn,” but I’d argue that Bob Schieffer on FTN is not in that category. He makes Stephanopoulos and Gregory look like fumbling amateurs.
Plus, I think he’s from the same town as Doots 😉
Suspect Arrested in Connection to Daniel Pearl Murder
Agreed. Bob Schieffer: my apologies. You’re the keeper.
