Fortune cookie say, "Profit awaits!"
It's not stealing. It's an homage.
Rumor has it these models will be sold with free copies of original video game "Guitar-like Hero III" for the Xboxer and Praystation game consoles. (Free iPuds with the first 1 billion sold.)

Good grief... How many relatives does this guy have?? And how many of them are living in slum conditions and bark huts while he's been busy making the sweet moola with Uncle Rico?
What was that again Obama was telling us about doing "unto the least of these" at Rick Warren's Religious-rope-a-dope event a couple months ago?
Guess we can safely add "hypocrite" to the list of negatives piled like Boston street sewage against the ivory statue of The One.
L.A. Times Special Edition available through Nov. 4 only!
I'm going to come clean and reveal that back during the Jeremiah Wright scandal, I sincerely believed Obama was simply caught fudging his "church-goin' man" credentials. That he didn't really know about Trinity United's self-described(!) Marxism and pro-Hamas activities at all because he really wasn't there that much. Now I'm beginning to seriously fear his willingness to back off Iran is motivated by something other than liberal naivete entirely.
Help me out here, L.A. Times.
The tape of Obama and Rashid Khalidi is real. The Times admits it. They're simply refusing to let anyone know what's on it.
And since releasing the tape would also prove what isn't on it -- including, say, non-8-year-old Barack Obama yucking it up with Bill Ayers and Bernardine Dorhn over cocktails -- we can only conclude it's all pretty damning.
Dune Capital is offering $150,000 to anyone with a bootleg copy.
Here's hoping ACORN has been deployed to the bowels of the L.A. Times to stand guard over the original. I hear those people would sell their (dead) grandmother(s' birth certificates) for a quick buck.

Change is coming
Vote GOP, oh ye people! For the love of God, vote! Hold your nose if you have to, but vote.
Pat Buchanan has had a dark vision of Barack's first 100 days, and it's not pretty. Scary thing is, the ones I've highlighted are the unequivocal no-brainers, things that will happen, 100% guaranteed, because they've either said so outright or have tried it in the past:
"...We may be looking at a reverse of 1980, when Reagan won a 10-point victory over Jimmy Carter, and Republicans took the Senate and, working with Boll Weevil Democrats, effective control of the House.
With his tax cuts, defense buildup and rollback policy against the "Evil Empire," Reagan gave us some of the best years of our lives, culminating in America's epochal victory in the Cold War.
What does the triumvirate of Obama-Pelosi-Reid offer?Tell me, friends who call yourselves conservative Christians still voting for this guy, is this what you're willing to see happen? Is this the change you want? Because it's a nation neither conservative nor Christian, and you're about to help make it happen.
Rep. Barney Frank is calling for new tax hikes on the most successful and a 25 percent across-the-board slash in national defense. Sen. John Kerry is talking up new and massive federal spending, a la FDR's New Deal. Specifically, we can almost surely expect:
-- Swift amnesty for 12 million to 20 million illegal aliens and a drive to make them citizens and register them, as in the Bill Clinton years. This will mean that Nevada, Colorado, New Mexico and Arizona will soon move out of reach for GOP presidential candidates, as has California.
-- Border security will go on the backburner, and America will have a virtual open border with a Mexico of 110 million.
-- Taxes will be raised on the top 5 percent of wage-earners, who now carry 60 percent of the U.S. income tax burden, and tens of millions of checks will be sent out to the 40 percent of wage-earners who pay no federal income tax. Like the man said, redistribute the wealth, spread it around.
-- Social Security taxes will be raised on the most successful among us, and capital gains taxes will be raised from 15 percent to 20 percent. The Bush tax cuts will be repealed, and death taxes reimposed.
-- Two or three more liberal activists of the Ruth Bader Ginsberg-John Paul Stevens stripe will be named to the Supreme Court. U.S. district and appellate courts will be stacked with "progressives."
-- Special protections for homosexuals will be written into all civil rights laws, and gays and lesbians in the military will be invited to come out of the closet. "Don't ask, don't tell" will be dead.
-- The homosexual marriages that state judges have forced California, Massachusetts and Connecticut to recognize, an Obama Congress or Obama court will require all 50 states to recognize.
-- A "Freedom of Choice Act" nullifying all state restrictions on abortions will be enacted. America will become the most pro-abortion nation on earth.
-- Affirmative action -- hiring and promotions based on race, sex and sexual orientation until specified quotas are reached -- will be rigorously enforced throughout the U.S. government and private sector.
--Universal health insurance will be enacted, covering legal and illegal immigrants, providing another powerful magnet for the world to come to America, if necessary by breaching her borders.
-- A federal bailout of states and municipalities to keep state and local governments spending up could come in December or early next year.
-- The first trillion-dollar deficit will be run in the first year of an Obama presidency. It will be the first of many."
Okey-dokey... Just scanning the daily movie news here.
Let's see what the town that once gave us Lawrence of Arabia and It's a Wonderful Life is promising the world this morning.
Ah. Looks like we've got a big budget film about a farting dog... Excellent. A biopic about a little known member of National Public Radio... Good, good. A nostalgic road-trip picture featuring hippies on LSD, based on something published in 1968... (Gutsy, I like it.) Annnnd, to top it off, looks like we've got a reverent homage to the Prophet Muhammad in the works, too. Well God bless 'em for caring, huh?
Excellent choices, Hollywood. [Splash sips his mimosa, turns the page.]
Wait a minute. What's this--? Says here they're doing an epic actioner about William the Conqueror? What the crap??
I mean, sure, Bush will technically be gone by then, but how does this help the life-or-death struggle against Sarah Palin's America? William didn't wage an illegal foreign war against misunderstood Muslims. He didn't face discrimination as a black athlete in the South. And we as a people didn't survive the Hollywood blacklist for you to make useless stuff like this!
Shareholders, get on the phone now. Because (unless they make him gay or symbolic of European progressiveness, of course) heads need to roll.

The damning video tape of Barack Obama that the L.A. Times is dutifully sitting on...
Sarah Palin hung in effigy in West Hollywood...
A link to audio of Barack Obama explicitly lobbying for "redistribution of wealth" (aka Marxism) on Chicago talk radio in 2001...
And DH mulling over the question I'm surprised more people aren't asking themselves... Forget "how well does Obama know Ayers, Wright, Khalidi, ACORN, et al?" but "what is it they see in him to connect with so well?"
They haven't suffered. They haven't paid their dues. While the rest of us were busy doing our duty being average -- skipping class, partying and whatnot in college -- they were acting all high falutin' taking night classes, going into triple-digit debt, working for free to rub our noses in it and fool us all into thinking they were special, entitled to more money in the end, just because.
Sure they're already paying a huge percentage of the nation's taxes, but Barack is right. We won't be able to thrive as a people until families like this are living in the projects, and their children are forced not to continue on the same path as mom and dad into the medical field but to take lesser jobs like you and me and Nanci Pelosi.
Check out these arrogant punks here. And while you're watching, hum the Aerosmith song Barack better play at his inauguration after we the people elect him to spread the wealth around. Hum it with your face twisted in righteous indignation...
About how many bills
And I'm sick of all your bitchin'
Bout your poodles and your pills
And I just can't see no humour
About your way of life
And I think I can do more for you
With this here fork and knife!
Eat the Rich: there's only one thing they're good for
Eat the Rich: take one bite now - come back for more
Eat the Rich: I gotta get this off my chest
Eat the Rich: take one bite now, spit out the rest!

Yes, ladies and gentlemen, the unrest we've been reporting here for some time has now reached our sleepy town in Central Washington state.
It began with a sign stealing spree a month or so ago, and today, upon stepping out of the Splash Cave en route to the Splashmobile this a.m., I was horrified to find that our own McCain/Palin yard sign had been not only stolen in the wee hours, but apparently tortured during the process.
The moral of the story? Never underestimate the Left's passion for free speech.
"Is this a joke?"
Joe Biden, sweating through the hair plugs:
"I don't know who's writing your questions."Translation: "I thought we were writing your questions!"
No, Joe, but if recent events are any indication, you're gonna find out who it was and make 'em pay.
Because how dare she, a mere reporter, ask the future vice president of the United States tough questions like these?
I love, too, how Biden steps in it by attacking Bush for "spreading the wealth around," which was, um, Obama's very promise to Joe the Plumber. No wonder they've put a muzzle on this guy.
I'm starting to change my mind... Four years of this could be really, really fun.
Keepin' it real, paying the price
Billionaire carpetbagger Tim Gil, aka The Gay Godfather (Thanks, Jeremy), wants to kill our babies. Literally, I'm sure, but in this case, it's strangling the next generation of conservatives in the crib that he's all about.
"...Gill famously put it this way: 'I want to end the career of the next Rick Santorum before it starts.' ”Well, if money talks, Michele Bachmann is getting an earful. All for having the audacity to suggest the media do its job.
Luckily, in the one-sided murderball game played against her by the Left and its media toadies, Bachmann can at least count on her own party to defend her, right? Seeing as how it's in danger of losing a significant number of congressional seats already as it is?
"To add to her troubles, the national Republican Party—which has been in almost complete retreat from conservatives and their ideas for the past two election cycles—confirmed Wednesday, just two weeks before the election, that it will not run previously planned TV advertisements on Bachmann’s behalf."Sigh...

Thaaat's what he said
Is it just me, or has "The Office" screwed up by introducing Michael's new gal pal Holly? Not that there haven't been a few laughs, but I don't see where this relationship can possibly lead.
Sure, technically she's not quite as clueless as he is, but a little of the new HR rep with a blind spot for the World's Greatest Boss goes a long way. At least for me. And it's territory already well covered by Micheal Scott himself.
As I see it, sitcoms are a delicate balance of characters pulling strategically against each other for just the right amount of tension and comedy. There's only room for one Jim Ignatowski in "Taxi," one barstool at "Cheers" that fits Cliff Clavin's keister just right. Just look at the overnight train wreck that "News Radio" became after Phil Hartman died and was replaced by Jon Lovitz, who essentially arrived as a second Andy Dick.
It looked like "The Office" had a similar problem brewing when Andy arrived from Stamford, but the show managed to shade his differences just enough to compliment, not clash with Dwight's mojo. That's going to be tougher to do with Holly. Already things feel a might forced -- not to mention how double-the-dorkiness draws too much attention to the, let's face it, impossible existence of a guy like Michael Scott in a position of authority in the politically correct realm of corporate America. And if he represents the show's realty-piercing punchline, her character commits the cardinal sin of comedy by taking us past the punchline.
Maybe nothing to worry about. I read somewhere Amy Ryan was initially booked for only half a dozen episodes. Last night's complication is perfectly timed to make just such a deadline. Either way, I have faith in Greg Daniels to make it all better. Sure hope so. I'd hate to have to start buying my paper from Staples again.

And while I'm at it, here's another script review, this one for that Guy Ritchie Sherlock Holmes project (now filming) that I've been following. Doesn't sound as promising, but I'm pretty sure the magic that was Iron Man also wouldn't have been obvious from the script either. (Just saw it again last night, and apart from the obviously killer production design and action sequences, it was the casting -- Robert Downey Jr., the chemistry between RDJ and Gweneth Paltrow, and a seriously overachieving performance by the great and mighty Jeff Bridges -- that made that picture a cut above.)

"Enter into your Master's rest..."
Islamofascits define a martyr as someone filled with hate who, as an act of worship, murders and maims strangers he chances across. Christians define a martyr by precisely the opposite set of criteria.
Only one of those paths leads to a far green country, and Gayle Williams is there right now.

286 to 42. That's the ratio of anti-McCain shtick to anti-Obama gags on late night TV over the past five weeks. And if you've been paying attention -- as I have -- you know the anti-Obama jokes are largely softballs and/or tangential to the man, while McCain and Palin get hit between the eyes with a sledghammer every single time.
Don't miss Ashley Banfield on the lack of Joe Biden jokes: There's just not a lot of material there.
Right Ashley. No material. At all. None. Not a thing.
Botox, the Scrooge hair, the Scrooge-hair hairplugs... Obama is black and therefore off limits. I get that. (Not.) But Biden? The man's a glorious train wreck of comedy, and LenoLetterKimmel O'Brien is asleep at the switch.

What, me worry?
What Obama had to ask himself is, "do I feel lucky?" Apparently he really, really does, punk. Because Dirty Harry shot this one down in his sleep.
But who needs luck when the MSM has your back?
Who needs, well, anything when you're sitting this pretty?

A news report on the incident here...
From The New York Post's recap of the exchange:
Wurzelbacher said he planned to become the owner of a small plumbing business that will take in more than the $250,000 amount at which Obama plans to begin raising tax rates.
"Your new tax plan is going to tax me more, isn't it?" the blue-collar worker asked.
After Obama responded that it would, Wurzelbacher continued: "I've worked hard . . . I work 10 to 12 hours a day and I'm buying this company and I'm going to continue working that way. I'm getting taxed more and more while fulfilling the American Dream."
"It's not that I want to punish your success," Obama told him. "I want to make sure that everybody who is behind you, that they've got a chance for success, too.
Then, Obama explained his trickle-up theory of economics.
"My attitude is that if the economy's good for folks from the bottom up, it's gonna be good for everybody. I think when you spread the wealth around, it's good for everybody."
Critics said Obama let the cat out of the bag.
"It's clear that his main goal is redistribution of wealth, not growth," said Andy Roth with the anti-tax group Club for Growth. "He's perfectly happy to destroy wealth as long as he can redistribute it."It's not a "Robin Hood" tax plan. Robin Hood fought a confiscatory government. Obama is Prince John with the backing of the mob.

Don't stand so close to me: Cousins Barack and Raila
"Kenyans are now yearning for change," declared Barack Obama stumping for his cousin Raila Odinga in Kenya two years ago.
Earlier this year, after now Prime Minister Odinga riled up the troops following his initial election loss, Odinga's people herded Christians into churches and burned them to the ground.
"...Mr. Odinga had the backing of Kenya's Muslim community heading into the election. For months he denied any ties to Muslim leaders, but fell silent when Sheik Abdullahi Abdi, chairman of the National Muslim Leaders Forum, appeared on Kenya television displaying a memorandum of understanding signed on Aug. 29, 2007, by Mr. Odinga and the Muslim leader. Mr. Odinga then denied his denials.
The details of the MOU were shocking. In return for Muslim backing, Mr. Odinga promised to impose a number of measures favored by Muslims if he were elected president. Among these were recognition of "Islam as the only true religion," Islamic leaders would have an "oversight role to monitor activities of ALL other religions [emphasis in original]," installation of Shariah courts in every jurisdiction, a ban on Christian preaching, replacement of the police commissioner who "allowed himself to be used by heathens and Zionists," adoption of a women's dress code, and bans on alcohol and pork..."
More details on Obama's brand of radical. As if the connection to Bill "Bring the revolution home! Kill your parents!" Ayers wasn't enough...
"...Like his father, Jaramogi Oginga Odinga, the main opposition leader in the 1960s and 1970s, Raila Odinga is a Marxist He graduated from East Germany's Magdeburg University in 1970 on a scholarship provided by the East German government. He named his oldest son after Fidel Castro."The above piece from Mark Hyman in 'The Washington Times' deserves major play. I guarantee it won't get it. And if McCain mentions it, he'll be labeled a racist engaged in dirty politics.
So Barack Obama can be seen on YouTube stumping for a Marxist, mass-murdering, pro-Islamic, blood relative; is tight friends with Marxist terrorist Bill Ayers; and remains a member of a Marxist, anti-Semitic, pro-Hamas church that even Oprah Winfrey left and publicly repudiated not long ago.
So which is it? Is Barack Obama another lying politician with a spinning moral compass? Or is he really that clueless?

I summon thee!!!
My bad. Turns out Obama is a god.
It seems 4,462 dead people are active, registered voters in Harris County, Texas. The votes counted.
Apart from the last two general elections, they were active not in the Republican but in the Democratic Party March primary, won handily by Obama.
Man, this guy is popular... He's even got the zombie vote!
Thursday, October 9, 2008
Among the news items coming out about the fraudulent, radical community organization where a certain famous community organizer honed his community organizing skills, we have this little, er, chestnut.
Some people were goaded by Obama's, er, nutjobs into registering up to 15 times.
"...Other canvassers hired by ACORN were residents at the Casa Grande Transitional Housing Facility, a Nevada Department of Corrections institution that offers convicted felons an opportunity to take part in work-release programs.
'It raises significant concerns that they hired prison inmates, some of whom have been convicted of identity theft,' Miller said."
So while at times it may be hard to, er, see the forest for the trees, it seems all the unprecedented "new-voter" enthusiasm we keep hearing about may really be coming mainly from the paid help.
" 'You can tell them you're registered as many times as you want - they do not care,' said Lateala Goins, 21, who was subpoenaed.
'They will follow you to the buses, they will follow you home, it does not matter,' she told The Post.
Obama's people seem to be taking the whole "give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses" thing quite literally, too.
"...Volunteers supporting Barack Obama picked up hundreds of people at homeless shelters, soup kitchens and drug-rehab centers and drove them to a polling place yesterday on the last day that Ohioans could register and vote on the same day, almost no questions asked."And make no mistake, the, er, roots of this ACORN problem run deep, right into the warm, nurturing waters of the Community Organizer in Chief himself.
"...At least a few news reports have briefly mentioned Obama’s role in training Acorn’s leaders, but none that I know of have said what [ACORN kingpin] Foulkes reports next: that Obama’s long service with Acorn led many members to serve as the volunteer shock troops of Obama’s early political campaigns — his initial 1996 State Senate campaign, and his failed bid for Congress in 2000 (Foulkes confuses the dates of these two campaigns.) With Obama having personally helped train a new cadre of Chicago Acorn leaders, by the time of Obama’s 2004 U.S. Senate campaign, Obama and Acorn were “old friends,” says Foulkes."Be sure to read and keep handy that last link between now and November. Because the fact they may very well steal this election on massive voter fraud is about as funny as my puns.
The US government's debts have ballooned so badly the National Debt Clock in New York has run out of digits to record the spiralling figure.No worries.
The clock's owners say two more zeros will be added, allowing the clock to record a quadrillion dollars of debt.Why not? That's how the government does it.

The way the AP crafts this story, you'd think Jews were being rounded up by the Nazis and sent to the gas chambers.
The truth of the situation, however, is seen in the money quote from a legal employee on hand during the roundup...
And if the fact that these lawbreakers are funneling billions of dollars a year out of the U.S. economy isn't enough to overcome the perceived tragedy here, just remember that the situation could be resolved overnight if our elected leaders at the national level would simply enact the kind of employer-targeted legal action currently cleaning up the state of Arizona.
Rooker had to duck into a bathroom to avoid what he called a stampede of people.'I didn't know what they were running from. I had no reason to run.'

Holy pants'afire, Batman! CNN just reported facts -- facts -- that reflect negatively on the big B.O.!
I couldn’t believe CNN did this. After it was over, The Hot Little Number I Call Mrs. Harry and I stared at each other, jaws open, like we were watching Bigfoot pedal by on a unicycle.More of Dirty Harry's most excellent take on it here.

You grope my rear, I'll...er...'cover' your Fannie
Huh. And I was just kidding with the Barney Frank "hand on fanny/Fannie" stuff. Turns out I was dead on. Check it out here.
Or, if Fox News is too "biased" for you, try The Boston Globe on for size. Still not Woodward-n-Bernsy enough? Let's go with The New York Times.
Have you ever seen a pack of dirty politicians this smilingly blatant in their dirty politics? It's beyond hypocrisy. They truly do believe we're that stupid. Or that enough of us are that it's worth playing the odds. Staggers the imagination. (And apparently jiggles the hiney.)

The name's Black...Jack Black
And with this announcement, we have a new one atop the "Must See Movies for Bloggers Named Splash" leaderboard.
"...A sort of comedic "The Bourne Identity," the story sees Black as an American who finds himself washed up the shores of Cuba with no idea of who he is and how he got there. He comes to the conclusion that he must be a superspy, though in reality he is far from one"Giddyup.
