Wart's speech

At his alma mammy, the University of Illinois at Spiffled (the former Sangaman (sic) State University). Good God, it's almost two-and-a-half hours long.


Update: "Does anyone know what 'SangaMON' means?" He emphasized the "MON." I take a small bow.

Update II: He sounds drunk.

Update III: I had the year wrong on the Fort Clark mess. Other people did, too. That's all there was to it.

Update IV: Bill O'Reilly! Drink (yourself to death).

Update V: As is his wont, he accuses somebody else (a guy named Chris Dentro (sp)) of plagiarism. "Cut and paste, cut and paste." Not exactly dispositive, Wart.

Update VI: He attacks "the media." Hahahahahaha.

Update VII: Youtube: "1 views." I assume that's me. Why am I watching this?

Update VIII: I'm not quite a third of the way through. Wartie is discussing his completely warped view of the genesis of the American University. It's only 6:30, and I think I need to go to bed.

Update IX: Koch brothers! You're in the hospital already, so just drink from your IV!

Update X: Can't stand this ass. Gotta feed animals. Maybe I can stand to watch some more tomorrow (if you're lucky).

Since I'm just sitting here with my teeth in my mouth

I should mention that I have a rat snoring gently in the left front pocket of my dungarees. I don't talk enough about the other animals in this house. All Billy Bob, all the time, that's me.

Update: the rat's name is Sun; her companion is Estrella (sorry, kids named them).

Earl Scruggs

At 88. Nothing to add to the AP's obit, except to point out a lovely typo in the piece's penultimate line: "He is survived by two songs, Gary and Randy."

Well, sort of lovely.

Update: somebody fixed it.

That's what we figured

A new letter from my pal Barack. Header: "We had no idea."

John -- [No "Dear" again. I've had it with this rudeness]

As we count down to another critical fundraising deadline for this campaign, it's important to remember this:

We always knew this election would be about two competing economic plans -- whether we get to build on our progress or see it taken away.
Progress? And it's not about two competing economic "plans," it's about some lying, soft version of socialism (for a while) v. some reasonably mitigated form of capitalism.
But we had no idea we'd also be up against a social agenda that would roll back decades of progress [sic], particularly for women's health.
Women's. health. There it is. No idea if Sandra Fluke is a slut, and to be honest, I aspired to be a slut in my younger days (not much success there), so more power to her. But it's clear she's just another "activist," pushing for others to pay for how she chooses to live. I'll pass, begging your pardon and if it's all right with you. Sir.
That means the consequences of this election will be felt in more ways than we'd counted on -- and what you do this week will help decide what they are.

Will you donate $3 or more right now?
Uhhhh, I'll think about it (snort).

Hi, Barack! (waves)

The cremulation of Labor in Queensland yesterday was better than expected by almost everyone (on the right, of course). From 51 seats to "7 or 8." Wow. (Blair and Bolta are full of other election goodness.)

I like this from a commenter at WUWT, quoting the Courier-Mail (in, one supposes, Queensland):

A merciless Bob Katter [some LNP muckety-muck] had some harsh words for Anna Bligh tonight, following her defeat at the polls [as Labor PM of Queensland].

“Did you really think people would vote for you?” he said.

“Congratulations Anna – you saved the trees but the people well and truly cut you down.”

And it’s too bad that American politicians & public can’t be more like the following [sic] instead of being distracted by personal hot button issues that have little effect on the nation as a whole: When asked about gay marriage, Mr Katter said: “We’re talking about serious issues.”
Of course, what the commenter doesn't say is that we're allowing the media to distract with these idiotic "hot-button" issues.

Update: WUWT fans (and fans of truth, justice and the Am--er, Australian way), will enjoy this thread.

Here's an account

Of Wart's appearance at his ol' alma mammy, the former Sangaman (again, his spelling in his long-gone self-written CU profile--it's spelled "Sangamon") State University last night.

Favorite line: "The topics Churchill addressed while speaking to a crowd of about 40 people at the University of Illinois Springfield went far off topic from activism . . .

Second fave: "He claimed that plagiarism and fraudulence in the media is expansive and that all phones are equipped with GPS technology and technology users should be wary."

Second point may be true enough. First point: You should know, Wart.

Third fave:
Activism in America has come a long way since the days of Viet Nam push-back and protests from college students. Churchill says the video-recorders, which members of today’s Occupy movement are more likely to carry than guns are important. But he says for an activist not to arm his or herself is a concession of power.

CHURCHILL: “We could have used a few more recorders [my itals] and some of these assets that you have available; would have been really nice to be able to instantaneously record and transmit things police were doing in those days but availing ourselves of those technologies had they been available at the time would not have supplanted the need for the capacity to engage in armed self-defense.”
Not bothering to link to much of my vetting that bullshit, except for this, but what a liar and cheat and hypocrite this fat self-important fuck is. He has believed for decades that every opinion but his own should be shut down.

By violence, if necessary.

Update: Violence, of course, performed by others. Wart's always been very vague about his own revolutionary activities. Probably because he didn't participate in any, at least physically. Now the sack of shit can hardly walk. He's oooooold.

Hey Wart: Where are those "four books" you were working on before, you know, four years ago, which you had to abandon because the Nazis at CU distracted you?
