Well, well, a few things going on today so here’s a Lounge to sort it all out 🙂 Feel free to post not only on what I link to but whatever is on your mind as well. Links are allowed, as they are now on every post, but will still be held briefly for moderation. I have a tiny feeling you guys have stuff on your minds 😉 Looking forward to hearing about it!

Let’s start with that Newt Gingrich video from a few days ago that I really, really like. Some of the Talking Heads said it was arrogant. I find it inspirational and appreciated the reminder about who we are and what we’re capable of as Americans.

Mu favorite piece of news today courtesy of Breitbart–Nancy Pelosi apparently has done as much damage as possible and now wants to run from the scene of the crime.

Big Government: Nancy Pelosi’s Daughter: ‘My Mom Wants to Leave Congress’

Weird, so Newt’s not toast in Iowa? Funny, you’d think he was considering all the MSM is saying so. So is this a come back or did he never really leave?

RCP: Poll Shows Three-Way Tie in Iowa

TAMs were not surprised to hear this:

Politico: Pro-Bachmann super PAC jumps to Romney

And other bad news for Bachmann, less out of her control and very possibly related to the message that was sent when it became clear she hadn’t even tried to get on the Virginia ballot. Her campaign co-chair in Iowa defects to the Ron Paul campaign. Her response:

RCP: Bachmann Accuses Iowa Co-Chair Of Taking Money To Join Ron Paul

Time: Get Ready For A Obama-Clinton Presidential Ticket

    I’ve got a bad feeling about the 2012 presidential election. There are just too many weak-minded Democrat drones being herded by the Lamestream Media, looking for ever more handouts walking among us now. And I miss Sarah in the mix — the only politician ever to stir me to any kind of political action.

    But now — a live performance of “Take Five” from 1961 by TAM favorite Dave Brubeck Quartet (Oh that Joe Morello on drums!)…

    1. “Arrogant”? That’s what the tyrants and slaves of the world have always called America. They have no idea what “independence” or “indomitable” is.

    2. Pelosi wants to jump ship? I think it’s getting too hot with the investigation into her investments. Or she knows we’ll have a Repub house again, despite all her delusional statements to the contrary, and has no fondness for being a back-bencher again. I also think the writing is on the wall about Obama among the Dems and no one expects him to be the Dem candidate. If it’s Hillary, that’s also a cue for Nancy to get out while the getting’s good considering her treachery in 2008.

    3. 3 way tie? This is by no means the fait accompli the LSM or the elites wish it to be for Mittens. I don’t even think the last card has dropped yet. That’s a looong way off.

    Thanks Tammy, I agree with you about the Newt video.

    I’ll begin with Newt’s video….extremely Patriotic…makes me even more proud to be an American! Our Founding Fathers definitely needed “Pleats”, as Tammy would say!
    Now on to the snark….Pelosi wanting to leave Congress…Good riddance to bad rubbish?
    Bachmann (Fachmann) and Mittenz… this pic reminds me of the song “Is This Love” by Whitesnake http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ujnH4yNqL8E
    Now on to one of the most frightening pics I have ever seen….I’m reminded of the movie “The Two Faces Of Eve” but in this case maybe the title “The Two Faces Of Satan” would be more appropriate! (Did I say That? LOL! Why YES I did 😀 ) The perfect Halloween mask IMHO!

    That Obama-Clinton ticket looks promising. Maybe we should have a contest for their campaign slogan. Is that a dumb idea?

    Of course I’m the wise-acre who thought someone should take Sarah Palin’s words “hopey changey thing” and make a song/dance video called “Hopey Changey Thang” to the tune of Achy Breaky Heart.

    If you click on that ” Bachmann accuses….” link, down the bottom of that page on the political videos, I checked out old Arlen (Benedict…right), .. he does a comedy bit ( my Dad knew Arlen actually(he(my dad) was an FBI agent/criminal investigator/attorney in Philly)}, Specter was DA in Philly, …but you might find this amusing.
    I could check this stuff out all night, but I gotta go to work….Adios.
    P.S. …some good movies Rooster Cogburn – John Wayne/ Katherine Hepburn
    The Edge : Anthony Hopkins
    The River of No Return : Marilyn Monroe/Robert Mitchum
    The Bridges At Toko-Ri : William Holden/Mickey Rooney
    Grace Kelly ( this reminds me of my dad who was a
    Navy Pilot WW 11; Korea, besides the FBI…etc, … just maybe some somewhat esoteric movie picks( except maybe Rooster is more well known), but you`d probally like`em… what do I know….later

    Brian Lerch of “Sarah Palin’s Earthquake” movement was on Fox News at 4pm today (Eric Bolling filling in for Neil Cavuto). Bolling is an unabashed Palinista. He announced during this interview that Sarah Palin will be his guest on Monday as guest host of the same show – the day before the Iowa Caucuses. Palin is really going to have to make some firm statements on Monday, because this “Vote Rogue in Iowa” movement seems to be picking up a little steam. If her whole drop-out-into-radio-silence routine of the past couple of months was a great Sun Tzu plot to confound the opposition (which, if it is so, will have been brilliant), she can simply say, “if you’re not happy with the field, go ahead and vote Palin in Iowa, I won’t stop you and it will be fun to see the result”, and then we could see some magic the following day. But if she really meant to completely close herself off to the possibility of being involved in the 2012 race, this will be her opportunity to say, “please don’t waste your vote on me, I will not be running and will not serve,” and that will be that (finally). I just hope Bolling doesn’t let her off the hook if the answer is not #1. If it’s not #1, then he’s got to push her into saying #2. Because letting people put themselves out there like this, if it’s not part of a grander plan, is simply cruel. If it was part of a grand plan, then I would support what she’s done since October.

    I almost dislike Bachmann more than Pelosi!!! I know you were right about her Tammy, what she’s been doing and how she acts really is disgusting. All the Iron Lady talk, she’s MOCKING HER, the more I hear her say it and what she’s been up to, she’s so MOCKING her and Palin!! Bachmann and Beck, I don’t know how they can live with themselves…..
