Obama Was Right, Some Crimes Are Understandable

Via Smoking Gun:
NOVEMBER 26--A Texas woman was arrested yesterday for stealing more than $6400 worth of sausage from the Kiolbassa Provision Company, a San Antonio firm that has been smoking meat since 1949.

According to an arrest affidavit, Regina Shaw, 45, was linked to the September 14 theft via surveillance footage that recorded her taking a “pallet of meat product” from the purveyor.
When I heard Obama empathize  with the Ferguson rioters my first impulse was all bigotish. It seemed counterproductive and irresponsible. But this sausage story has made me rethink my racist opposition to encouraging criminals. I mean, think of it, a whole pallet load of smoked sausage.

No, of course we shouldn't encourage this woman to steal, but there's nothing wrong with giving her a Homer Simpson, "mmmmmmm-sausage". 

I expect the President will urge her to "stay the course."

ACA will lower premiums, you can keep your plan, you can keep your doctor; heck, everyone who wasn't in the grip of obamathrall knew these were lies at the time.

Lumbersexuals, the Christopher Walken Wing of the Heteronormative Patriarchs

I thought it was a goof: grown men pretending to be lumberjacks. (the inverse of course, is common: Lumberjacks pretending to be grown men) But even TMZ has certified it as a real thing now.

So am I concerned about getting lost in the growing pool of faux lumberjacks? Nah. I'll worry when they start blogging.

Sorry for the blogging-pause, by the way. I had my gallbladder removed on Friday and haven't been doing much of anything. I know, you're skeptical. You'd expect me to remove my own gallbladder, and be back pretending to chop down trees the next day.  Well, I didn't excise my own gallbladder because the wikipedia page wasn't specific enough on some parts of the procedure. Normally I'd just go in and poke around until I found it but just this once I decided to let Obama's new, perfect, healthcare do the job.

As for why I wasn't out there pretending to chop down trees the next day: I showed up, but there were all these other pretend lumberjacks milling about; making chainsaw noises and pretending to harass the spotted owls. It looked like they had the situation well in hand so I left the field to them for a few days.

Kerfuffle in Turkey

via NRO:

Three U.S. sailors were assaulted by a group of young left-wingers in Istanbul on Wednesday, with the aggressors chanting “Yankee go home” while placing plastic bags on the Americans’ heads.

A liberal group? That's odd, huh? Expect the administration to investigate what the sailors might have done to precipitate this kind of treatment.

Two Men

Two world leaders meet at the APEC summit. One is a communist ideologue
 who rules by edict, and the other is Vladimir Putin, president of Russia.

Larry Hogan Wins

I didn't post anything last night because it seemed so much like a dream, but Larry Hogan is our new governor. In Maryland.  I was beginning to think we'd never see another Republican win.

Funny thing, it's been so long since I've had them, but Democrat tears taste more salty than I remember. Good though. Still good.

Go Vote

I'd like to remind all my conservative friends that it's Nov. 4th, election day. So do your civic duty.

And to my more liberal friends: your vote is important too. So be sure to vote on your day, Nov. 5th.
