UPDATE: The picture of Dear Leader Dumb Bastard is now a “Caption This” contest. Have at it!

Welcome to the midweek Lounge. As with the other Lounges, the usual no-links rule is lifted due to the nature of lounging and sharing 🙂 Comments including links, however, will still be moderated.


PJ Tatler: Obama waving-hand gaffe picture NOT a hoax or a Photoshop after all!

RCP: Palin: “Mark My Word, It Is Going To Be An Unconventional Election”

McClatchy-Marist: Palin within 5 points of Obama. Actually, with a 3 pt MoE (which you apply to both elements), that means she very well could be ahead by a point.

    1st Q for the lounge… How many people in the picture above are looking at Urkel like he’s an idiot?

  2. otlset says:

    Not shown — Urkel’s left hand in the Chinese guy’s pocket.

  3. Mutnodjmet says:

    I have an explanation: Obama is responding to the group question — “How many here want to see Obama re-elected?”.

    Gary Johnson is IN the next Debate tomorrow night. He’ll get one question about legalizing Pot, then a trap door opens and he’s gone…whoosh!

    So a total of NINE(9)Podiums. Now…what ‘should’ happen is Sarah Palin show up with her “Portable Podium” to make it an even TEN so the Defective Detective, Adrian Monk, doesn’t go completely over-the-edge.

    My New Debate Rules: 30 seconds to respond/answer a question, and 15 seconds for rebuttal. That should keep things lively. No lame buzzer either, needs to be an Air Horn. On second thought, just use the ‘toss up question’ format with big-a** red buttons, and whoever has the fastest average ‘buzz in time’ gets to be the nominee.

    Any other ground rules we should consider TAMs?

    Don’t worry President Tsakhia, we also know how it feels to get the face palm … every day.

    On a seperate topic than Urkel’s Madd Magazine cover shot!!! I have been bothered by the Perry Krishnas excuses for everything that is brought up about their candidate. From Gardasil, Dream Act, Crony Capitalism, and the different Ethics concerns – the Perry Krishnas excuses basically boil down to….”it doesn’t matter because what he can do for the country over shadows these minor things” or “that was Texas….he would never Nationalize that” to “that has been made up by his enemies”!
    I finally realized why these bother me ( and maybe it’s just me) but the Perry Krishnas sound alot like the DB’s supporters back in 2008! Granted, the concerns we had about Urkel were some what different, but to me “Bill Ayers?….he’s just a guy from my neighborhood” or “Khalid Rashidi is just a colleague from the University of Chicago” to “Hope and Change is what this country needs after 8 yrs of Bush!”, have the same tone to them as those from the Perry Krishnas!
    I am not sure if I explained myself very well, but I hope you get my Point!
    Have a SUPER night TAMS!!!! Huggles and Smooches!

  7. […] there is the dashing group photo from a “Open Government Workshop”: Hat-tip Tammy […]

    Can we have another “Caption This” contest? How about “Who thinks hope-n-change is workin’ out for ya?”

  9. ffigtree says:

    Are you sure that isn’t just a cardboard cutout of Obummer while he’s really out playing golf?

  28. Maynard says:

    On the broad question of leadership…I guess this is as good a place as any to mention that Captain Kirk says Star Wars sucks.

    And, in today’s news, SAT scores confirm that the class of 2011 is made up of the stupidest students ever. The good news is they’ve all watched Al Gore’s film and are skilled in the art of putting a condom on a banana.

      Maynard, This is something I have told people for quite awhile…..Our HS graduates can’t read or write, but they know that a plastic bag will destroy the earth. 🙂

    Korea and Mongolia just made an oil deal. So could this be deliberate?

    Caption this: “I’ll show you, Mongolian. Don’t make deals without my permission.”

    Obummer fell out of a Stupid Tree the size of a California Redwood and hit every branch on his way down. Then, he climbed back up and fell out again.

    Hey Tammy. Have you seen this on Palin and Beck?


    Could be an announcement.

  42. sandyl says:

    Caption: Will I need my teleprompter for this picture?

  43. Bri says:

    Why does FOX run the Nobody wants Palin to run poll before every debate?
    Talk about a drinking game, Tease, Money, Family, can’t win, damage, not serious,
    to late, girl already in, no ground game, fill in the blank.
    Help Us Sarah Palin your our only hope.

    Caption: ….Not having a Dumb Bastard for President…Priceless!

  45. Ken-P says:

    Liberals like President Obama have a brilliant, creative genius that’s often misunderstood. What you see here is so mind-numbingly smart and clever and above-the-crowd that dumbfounded conservatives will be scratching their heads for a long time.

    That’s true for most things he does.

    I you haven’t yet go see this little video of Bristol Palin . She went to some bar in Hollywood and some bigoted gay bloke started attacking her and her mother. See how she stands up to him. She might consider a career in the Marines.




  50. Jeffrey says:

    OK- I’m looking forward (as always) to the Palin Report- I’m hoping Tammy will include Bristol in this one as well. I just watched “THE” video… This pathetic 47 year old looser starts shouting expletives to TWENTY ONE YEAR OLD Bristol about her Mother. She very calmly asked do you hate my Mother because you’re a homosexual, and he agrees with her? That’s it, thats the hate??? Are you freaking kidding me with this crap? If he would have been in my face screaming my Mother was a blanking whore, I would have knocked his (as we say in a nice way) G damn teeth down his throat. I thought this would be a fun “fingers on the keyboard” project… I’m happy to report that the few trash cans I visited were in overwhelming support of Bristol!

  51. BostonBruin says:

    Seems like it’s time to make another prediction as to when Gov. Palin will make her announcement. So I’ll say the first week of October for the following reasons:

    1. Fulfill her quota of monthly interviews on Fox this coming week and then cancel the contract.

    2. The initial state filing deadlines come up at the end of October. An announcement the first week of October gives her staff about three weeks to get her campaign in order and start filing the paperwork.

    3. Gov. Palin has four speaking engagements in October: Defending The Republic Rally in St. Louis on the 7th, two Christian women’s Conferences on the 8th (Virginia) and the 22nd (Mississippi) and South Korea on the 11th. I think participating in these events as an announced candidate will enable her to maximize the attention and impact of her speeches. This is particularly true for the event in South Korea. As an announced candidate, she could have more opportunities open up for her with all the big-wigs that will be in attendance.
