Smells like bulldog spirit

Several comments have come in regarding a recent article on the Daily Telegraph, part of which laid in to tram lady Emma West. The ‘journalist’ Tom Chivers, a rubber-spined, foot-dragging quisling supped deeply from the trough of PC multiculti fantasy before putting pen to paper. Regurgitated all the designated PC orthodoxies on cue.

But wait! The comments moderator must have fallen asleep at the wheel, because ordinary readers were allowed full freedom to respond. For once. And boy, did they respond! They ripped the arse out of this limp-wristed, uni-testicled, white suburbia-dwelling hypocrite with vim and vigour. If you follow the threads you’ll see that he initially tried to respond, usually by way of facetious one-liners, but after a short while he shriveled like a scrotum in a snow-storm.

Is the legendary British bulldog spirit at last beginning to reassert itself? Well, check out the full thing here, or else sit back and enjoy my selection below.

"I notice that the YouTube footage of the Somali girl thugs, who violently attacked a white woman isn't on this list. Of course the footage of a white woman on a drunken rant is far more shocking.It says a lot about this country that a white woman is currently behind bars for using words, while the black girls, who used both words and physical violence, are excused and set free."

"Maybe her less than eloquent delivery was the result of a third world education in England’s crumbling and racially fragmented education system, where multicultural studies and global warming are given a higher priority than math and English.Maybe she’s forced to live among people who despise her, despise her culture, but who enjoy preferential treatment in housing and benefits all in the name of diversity.Or just maybe like the rest of us, she’s just grown utterly sick of the cultural vandalism inflicted on this country and endorsed by journalistic hacks like you Mr. Chivers."

"I would be interested to see how many villages in leafy Surrey would be happy to wake up and find that they were now 90% non white and Islamic, and women were liable to be spat at for not dressing correctly? "

"So come on, tell us why YOU think it's OK for the Somali 'white bitch' attackers to get off, while Emma West gets put away for WORDS. Come on, tell us also which multi-culti nirvana you live in"

"I have seen black street gangs proliferate, with a corresponding rise in gun and knife crime, I have seen the growth of islamic enclaves that are largely no-go areas for whites. Try walking through one one night with only your NUJ membership card for protection, it would be 'an enriching experience.'"

"The sad spectacle of this young woman, apparently drunk, with her son on her knee, berating the “f------ black people” and “f------ Polish” around her showed a side of Britain that we hoped had disappeared"Don't worry Tom, it'll disappear for good once native English people are finally eradicated from their homeland within about the next hundred years, so you can be a happy little bunny after all, just thinking what a splendid place England will be for your children and grandchildren. Pop over to Croydon sometime to get a taster."we"...? you prats in the media speak for no one."

Shame has no limits

The verminous reality contortionists of the MSM continue to outdo themselves with their cunning little warnings, sly manipulations, pernicious lies, perverse elisions and misleading images. I showed here how the Chicago Tribune exemplifies this by working on the principle that most readers just skim the 'news' and are easily taken in (propagandised) by visuals. In this instance their pictorial representation of the city's top mug shots (90% black or hispanic) front-loaded all the whites onto the opening sets of images, on the assumption that most readers would not look much further.

Job done.

I learn from SBPDL of similar chicanery over at Alabama online 'news' rag "Incident at Edge 12 movie theater could bring worries over flash mobs closer to home" they warn us. As they should, given that 400 - yes, four hundred - black youth rioted and closed down a movie theatre over Christmas. Not that you'd ever know from the article that the rioters were 'people of colour'.

Au contraire. Au contraire. In fact the images they showed were of white flash mobs, but in this case college kids dancing for charity. And look at the image of that shifty guy with the phone. White, of course.
Now admittedly they did show, in small writing, that this particular mob was peaceful. But hey, you gotta work with what you have! And in this instance, working on the well-establsihed principle that a picture is worth a thousand words, they've successfully linked the 'beware of flash mobs' warning with the images of white 'mobs'.
Nice work, huh?
I tell you, Pravda under Stalin would have been embarrassed to publish such grotesque misrepresentations.

By George, what foresight!

The drumbeats for war against Iran rise to a crescendo, and few in a position of influence seem to be aware of the manipulation, or else are too corrupt and debased to put their miserable careers on the line. The scale and depth of America's current degraded state was brought home to me with great force while skimming through George Washinton's Farewell Address in 1796.

My God, what foresight! It's like he had come back from the dead and described whast he sees today. In his worst nightmare I don't think he could have envisaged things ever coming to such a pass.

"So likewise, a passionate attachment of one nation for another produces a variety of evils. Sympathy for the favorite nation, facilitating the illusion of an imaginary common interest in cases where no real common interest exists, and infusing into one the enmities of the other, betrays the former into a participation in the quarrels and wars of the latter without adequate inducement or justification. It leads also to concessions to the favorite nation of privileges denied to others which is apt doubly to injure the nation making the concessions; by unnecessarily parting with what ought to have been retained, and by exciting jealousy, ill-will, and a disposition to retaliate, in the parties from whom equal privileges are withheld. And it gives to ambitious, corrupted, or deluded citizens (who devote themselves to the favorite nation), facility to betray or sacrifice the interests of their own country, without odium, sometimes even with popularity; gilding, with the appearances of a virtuous sense of obligation, a commendable deference for public opinion, or a laudable zeal for public good, the base or foolish compliances of ambition, corruption, or infatuation.

As avenues to foreign influence in innumerable ways, such attachments are particularly alarming to the truly enlightened and independent patriot. How many opportunities do they afford to tamper with domestic factions, to practice the arts of seduction, to mislead public opinion, to influence or awe the public councils. Such an attachment of a small or weak towards a great and powerful nation dooms the former to be the satellite of the latter.

Against the insidious wiles of foreign influence (I conjure you to believe me, fellow-citizens) the jealousy of a free people ought to be constantly awake, since history and experience prove that foreign influence is one of the most baneful foes of republican government. But that jealousy to be useful must be impartial; else it becomes the instrument of the very influence to be avoided, instead of a defense against it. Excessive partiality for one foreign nation and excessive dislike of another cause those whom they actuate to see danger only on one side, and serve to veil and even second the arts of influence on the other. Real patriots who may resist the intrigues of the favorite are liable to become suspected and odious, while its tools and dupes usurp the applause and confidence of the people, to surrender their interests.

A belated response

Over at the recommended Jew Among You blog I was gently taken to task some time ago and I'm only now responding. He correctly states that blacks see whites as controlling everything, ipso facto, they're responsible for the manifold failings of blacks. Which is convenient nonsense on their part of course. When I impute responsibility to Jews for the things that are destroying the west (mass immigration, AA, desegregation, neocon wars, 'hate' legislation etc. etc.) he believes that I'm falling into the same trap.

It is true that 'whites control everything' compared to blacks. But.......whites have used that power to favour blacks, to a preposterous degree, and invariably at the expense of white society and individuals. However, and it's a big however, the hochjuden or Super-Jews who control America and most of the west most certainly do not favour Gentile whites. And that's putting it mildly! It seems, at least possible, that they instead harbour a deep animosity towards traditional white society in all its forms.

And as I've pointed out on many occasions, if and when the proverbial shit hits the fan, ordinary Jews could get swept away in the deluge. That being the case I'll repeat the suggestions I made in a recent post

Establish organisations such as:

() Jews against foreign wars

() Jews against Affirmative Action and denigration of the white race

() Jews against mass immigration

() Jews for 911 Truth

Is worse REALLY Better?

I've been preaching for quite some time that the old Leninist dictum ‘worse is better’ applies now like never before. Lady Savant took me firmly to task on this a few days ago. Apparently I'm willing, nay enthusiastic, about the prospects of seeing the ‘most vulnerable’ in our society suffer misery and of seeing ethnic groups ‘go for one another’s throats’. She became quite emotional. Maybe it’s the Christmas season?

Let me respond by quoting from a post I wrote about England a long time ago here.

“That once green and pleasant land has now been deemed the worst place in the developed world for a child to grow up. Towns all over the country that were a joy to visit 30 years ago are now crime-ridden, racially segmented dumps. England has become a multicultural society, though it’s fair to say that few English people ever wanted it to be. Certainly they were never asked. Through the folly, arrogance and sentimentality of their well-insulated ruling class, and by their own inattention, disorganization and reluctance to appear unkind, the English have given up large tracts of their country to foreign peoples, whom they dislike and who dislike them right back. The English have created their very own race problem from scratch — possibly the greatest act of self-destructive folly perpetrated by any civilised nation in the twentieth century.”

Now this has happened in less than two generations! Vast tracts of England have been taken over and despoiled by hostile, aggressive and unproductive invaders. Yet there has been little or no adverse reaction. On the contrary, as we saw with the Emma West case, any true Brit that speaks out against it will suffer horribly at the hands of the Quislings. And this from the nation that created an empire on which the sun never set, and which famously saw off all earlier invaders.

The United States will soon be a minority white country, in other words it won’t be the United States any more. Yet the only reaction from whites there is to uproot and flee to safer areas, soon to be followed by the non-white undertow in pursuit of their productive prey. Whereupon the same process will be repeated. The same developments have taken place throughout the Western world, to minimal public reaction. Children’s demographics in many parts of Europe show that whole cities and regions will rapidly become Third World hell holes within a generation. Demographics are destiny. Yet little or nothing is done.

So do you still think worse isn’t better? Well, the general population has shown that it will not react to the provocations I outlined above. There’s no guarantee that they will in the event of a major economic collapse either. But the chances are so much greater. As Gerald Celente says, ‘when people lose everything - they lose it’

It’s not just demographics. Especially in the USA, but in fact everywhere in the West (and nowhere else, of course) whites, especially white males, are discriminated against under a comprehensive framework of which Affirmative Action is but one element. Not alone must they contend with this, but their taxes go to providing a comfortable lifestyle for a whole sub-species of welfare breeders, who again show not the slightest hint of appreciation. And over the last few years white taxpayers (a tautology if there ever was one) have been stiffed to bail our criminal bankers while seeing their own savings and careers decimated. Meanwhile the bankers and their political sock puppets continue to live life on the hog.

No my friends, worse is better. We’ll all suffer a few years of hardship and it will be really painful for many of us. But we’re fucked anyway! That’s the point. I have no idea how it will all turn out and can only dream mistily of banksters and quislings swaying gently in the breeze as they dangle from lampposts. But there will be no change without a crash, that’s for sure.

So bring it on….

My traditional Christmas

I may have shown this cartoon before, but I'll do it again because it totally represents my Christmases over nearly forty years of marital bliss. It's the same, year after year after year after year. Lady Savant nagging me to get the tree, bring down the decorations, set up the tree etc. Me using any and every excuse until such time as a row breaks out. Then the work gets down and everything is sweetness and light until the next Christmas...........

A model of its kind

What are the qualities of a good TV presenter/moderator? I’d imagine a genuine open minded search for the truth, scrupulously keeping one’s own views to one’s self, selecting participants so as to maximise a balanced and informative programme, not quoting out of context, not throwing soft questions to be easily batted aside by an approved respondent, nor cutting off a non-favoured respondent in mid-stride, not asking leading questions of the ‘have you stopped beating your wife’ variety.

Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you Paula Zahn, CNN’s star ‘Investigative Reporter’ conducting an MSM-style ‘investigation’ into possible Israeli involvement in 9/11. This programme, ladies and gentlemen, is a model of its kind.

Watch and marvel.

Scandalous! Outrageous!

It seems like they've made major progress at the CERN Laboratories towards discovering whether the Higgs Boson actually exists. This is about as advanced as science gets, the cutting edge of the cutting edge.

The attached photo shows the team that achieved this breakthrough. Or at least part of the team. Because it's very clear that key members have been airbrushed out with a ruthlessness that would have done credit to Stalin.

I ask:

Where are the 'people of colour'?

Where are the females?

I know there are lots of them there because every time I turn on the TV all the cleverest scientists are always black and/or female. So what happened to them? And surely the Father Of The Internet himself should be in there?

But they're not. I don't know why. But I think we should be told.

Never knew that.

Watched Les Miserables this evening with Lady Savant in one of our regular heart-warming bonding sessions. And I learned something. Namely, that the Parisian anti-monarchist rebellion of 1832 was lead by blacks. Bet you didn't know that.

Now don't get me wrong. There were some white leaders as well, but they were uniformly headstrong and foolhardy, unlike the blacks who demonstrated a mastery of strategic planning and cool-headed practicality, and to whom the whites, wisely, deferred.

As I say, I never knew that. Didn't even know there were blacks in Paris in 1832. That's the great thing about the MSM. You learn something new every day.

Five and counting....

General Wesley Clark is, like his erstwhile mentor Colin Powell, an unprincipled ass-licking careerist who sold his soul to the devil a long time ago. However, now that he’s given up his political ambitions he’s coming clean on some of scandals he was privy to. One of them is the Neocon War Schedule. In this clip he details what occurred just before the Iraq adventure.

Six weeks later, I saw the same officer, and asked: “Are we still going to attack Iraq?”

He said: “Sir, it’s worse than that. He said – he pulled up a piece of paper off his desk – he said: “I just got this memo from the Secretary of Defense’s office. It says we’re going to attack and destroy the governments in 7 countries in five years – we’re going to start with Iraq, and then we’re going to move to Syria, Lebanon, Libya, Somalia, Sudan and Iran.”

Clark also points out that about ten years previously, in 1991, Paul Wolfowitz told him pretty much the same thing. Now there’s nothing dramatically new here – the Project for the New American Century has pretty much laid it all out at that time. Isn’t it scary though that an unelected self-selected group with dubious loyalties can decide on the wars the country takes on, with the elected ‘representatives’ reduced to a bystander’s role?

Isn't it scarier still that this plot scarcely gets a mention in the MSM or in what passes for political discourse in the USA?

So which will occur first: Syria and/or Iran attacked, or the USA becomes bankrupted from these adventures?

A moving experience

It takes a lot to make get me emotional these days. But I’ll confess that a lump formed in my throat and my eyes moistened as I watched the first two citizenship ceremonies ever to take place in Cork. It was emotional for the new ‘citizens’ as well. In the top picture here you can see them celebrate in the vibrant cultural tradition that’s going to so enrich our lives, and those of our descendants (assuming they’re still in Ireland).

And who could not be moved by the sight of Mohammed Kano from Nigeria, surrounded by his five wives and forty three children, as he pledged undying fealty to ‘the laws and customs of Ireland’. Indeed, his gratitude was so great that he offered all present the opportunity to make gains of 1000% percent in return for just a brief and modest lodgement to his bank account. He’s the kind of citizen that we want.


The discovery that all present had had their pockets picked by some of the new Romanian gypsy citizens undoubtedly put a bit of a damper on proceedings. But not for long. This was all forgotten as the ‘New Irish’ jumped on the bandwagon (second picture down)and headed over to the Social Welfare office to collect their very first welfare cheque as Irish citizens.

What a proud moment for all.

And interestingly, and by strange coincidence, they passed on their way the latest cohort of young Irish graduates (bottom picture) fleeing the country before it collapses into economic ruin, shouting ‘last one out turn off the lights’.

Isn’t that amazing?

True story

A black man, an illegal alien, and a Muslim walked into a bar in Boston.

The bartender asks: "What can I get you Mr. President?"

PC Guidance

What word starts with "N" and ends with "R" that you never want to call a black person?


Wednesday, 7 December 2011

Guess what this is...

Gaze on this picture and ask yourself what it is.

A beehive?

A tent with a vent?

Or a brother of Obi Wan Kenobi?

If you chose any of the above, well shame on you. It should be perfectly obvious that you’re looking at Sweden’s latest PC Plod, your friendly local officerette on the beat. Donna Eljammal, for it is she, informs us that her appointment “is a reflection of the multicultural Sweden we live in today”

Well, it certainly is that. It certainly is.

PC Aljammal, who ‘always wanted to be in the police’ also believes that “it shows the public another side of women choosing to wear the veil, that we are not oppressed but can be strong and independent women.”

Well,I’m not so sure about that, Officer.

But she’s on the mark again here. ”The veil shows clearly that I have first hand knowledge of different aspects of Swedish society.” Very true. Let me guess what these might be. Planting bombs on trains, honour killings, stoning adulterers, killing converts to Christianity, burning Jews out of their houses……..

Why, the way Sweden is going PC Eljammal could turn out to be a right mine of information after all. But………. would she pass it on to her fellow officers? Ah, that’s the rub, isnt it? She wouldn’t be like the Ft. Hood shooter, would she? Or would she be like this guy? He dressed up in a burka and has been merrily robbing travel agents (why just travel agents? Only he and Allah (Peace Be Upon The Fucker) know that).

Wouldn’t it be a sight to see her in all her regalia going after him, and they duelling out on the high street? CSI meets Afghanistan.

But burkas do have their uses

For example Lady Savant told me about a Muslim woman who was lingering around the ladies showers at the pool, refusing to undress or remove her veil."She was just staring at the other women through her veil making everyone feel really uncomfortable. I think we should ban the burka."

I disagreed. I’ve grown to love my old burka disguise.

Move on now, nothing to see here......

They’re celebrating diversity thick and fast across the Irish Sea. We note that Danny O’Shea was chased and stabbed to death by what the Beeb coyly tell us was “a group”. They neglected to mention that according to Det. Chief Inspector John MacDonald it was a group of black males. Purely an oversight on the part of Pravda the Beeb, I have no doubt. Probably realising he had put his foot in it, MacDonald quickly added that “there is nothing to suggest Danny's murder is racially motivated”. But of course John. A group of blacks chasing a white boy and stabbing him to death - how could that possibly have anything to do with race. I’ll bet that had it been a gang of white youths chasing and stabbing a black youth it would also be seen as non-racist.

Oh wait! What about Stephen Lawrence? This very thing happened eighteen years ago. It was the race/hate crime of the century and lead, after a police inquiry, to the destruction of the British police force as we knew and loved it. And it’s still a cause celebre. Even on today’s Beeb site they have done yet another piece on it. Eighteen years later.

Will the presstitutes of the lamestream media be talking about Danny O’Shea in eighteen years? It’ll be forgotten within eighteen days, and will be given cursory coverage if and when the poor misunderstood perps are brought to justice.

And speaking about justice in Britain.

A mob of female (kind of) asylum tourists from Somalia punched, kicked, beat and tore at Rhea Page in the centre of Leicester (one of Britain’s most ‘diverse’ cities) leaving her so traumatised that she lost her job following repeated absences with stress and flashbacks. You might imagine the fact of their screaming ‘kill the white slag’ as they attacked might have lead the ‘learned’ judge to deem said attack to be racially motivated.

But, gentle reader, we’re talking about NuLabour’s Cool Britannia here, and in accordance with what’s now become standard practice, the savages walked free with just a suspended sentence recorded.

Meanwhile Emma West, who was rude to some cultural enrichers in a tram, is, unbelievably, still in jail, and it looks like she will remain there over Christmas. That’s how it is in Britain today folks, and in much of the rest of Northern Europe.

I finish with a question. Has recorded history ever, and I mean ever, witnessed a condition whereby the host population willingly debases and discriminates against itself in favour of a wave of savage ungrateful parasites?

Into the future

Sweden has lead the world in innovative social solutions for more than half a century. To me many of them over that time have been positive and beneficial for a homogenous population. They’re still busily innovating, but now that things have gone off the rails world-wide it’s instructive to use that country as a guide to what’s in store for the rest of us.

A few examples:

The Lucia Celebration around Christmas time has been practiced for centuries. It features a procession of girls dressed all in white and carrying candles. Naturally enough proud parents can’t wait to get enough photos of their angelic offspring. I’ve known some Swedes who have specific Lucia albums. But all that’s come to an end, at least in the city of Linkoping. Under new rules introduced in the municipality earlier in the year, parents have been told they cannot take pictures at the numerous Lucia celebrations.

Why has this venerable tradition been thrown to the winds? A prime concern behind the move is said to be to prevent the children of asylum seekers with protected identities unwittingly being uncovered by such photos. Yes, that’s the reason. Now a very simple suggestion would be for the asylum tourists to be kept out of the celebrations. But I guess that’d contravene their rights. And we can’t have that. Much better to contravene the rights of the Swedes instead.

Now we all know, despite the MSM cover-up, that Muslim men don’t take kindly to women being in any position of authority. Especially when it’s directly wielded over them. So when, in the interests of gender equality they place young women as guards over Muslim prisoners (is Muslim prisoners a tautology?) you might expect a bit of excitement. Sure enough, one sunny day in the exercise yard of a remand centre an Iraqi Kurd (I got this from my Swedish friends, not, needless to say, from the obscene MSM) beat the girl to death with her own baton, supplemented by kicking and punching.

As one does.

And in the Egala pre-school in Stockholm they’re trying to drive a stake through the heart of natural development by rearing genderless misfits. In an experiment that would have gladdened the hearts of Beria or Georg Lukacs, at Egalia are all buddies. Or "persons". No one is a girl or boy. They’re all just ‘friends’. Referring to ‘him’ or ‘her’ is frowned upon. It’s all about ‘equality’, you see. “We have started from an idea of equality” says Lotta Rajalin, who is head of the six pre-schools in Stockholm. And is also, I imagine, a hairy-assed, foul-smelling dyke.

So that’s it folks, a glimpse into the near future for the rest of us.

Unless of course economic collapse focuses people’s minds on the real issue. Remember, worse is better.

And they called him Newt....

A newt is a warty crested lizard, pock-marked skin and flabby jowls, that emits a foul-smelling odour, ruthlessly catches and devours its prey but takes off like a scalded cat when threatened itself. It was thus with uncanny clairvoyance that the parents of Newton Leroy Gingrich named him Newt when he was born (created?) in 1943. For arguably he’s the most vile repulsive polymer-based life form on the face of the planet at this time.

Why do I say that? Where to begin? Well, Newt’s a great believer in Christian Marriage, so enthusiastic for it that he’s been married three time already. He married the first (Jackie Battley) while he was still a schoolboy and she his geometry teacher, and from whom, I would imagine he learned a few nifty new angles. But sadly, she contracted serious cancer. One day he got up, went to his critically ill wife in hospital and forced her to sign divorce papers. Meanwhile the next Mrs. Gingrich (Marianne Ginther) was at home in Wife One’s bed, having spent the night therein shagging Gingrich. According to L.H. Carter, his campaign treasurer, Gingrich said of Battley: "She's not young enough or pretty enough to be the wife of the President. And besides, she has cancer

Sheer class.

But Wife Two didn’t look after her health. Big mistake. Newt likes his wives to be brimming with health. Despite his enthusiasm for Christian Marriage, he never seemed to have got to the ‘for better or worse’ bit, and when Marianne got multiple sclerosis she was ditched by this noxious repellant creep. But not before he had milked some publicity out of it by performing his Caring Husband routine for the benefit of the assembled MSM presstitutes. And there was yet another factor that hastened her demise. For the future Speaker of the House of Representatives was in the saddle yet again, this time with a young lady who was, ahem, working under him on one of his campaigns at the time. Callista Bisek was also nearly a quarter of a century younger than him (still is).

Apparently he was caught in flagrante delicto with Callista on top of his office desk by a another campaign worker. Callista seems to possess Newt’s moral flexibility for she professes to be a ‘devout Roman Catholic’. I see, a devout Catholic shagging a married man on his office desk while his wife suffered at home with MS. In any event, she’s so devout that Newt has now decided to ‘convert’ to Catholicism. Isn't that something? What was the Damascene spur? Was it at a moment of climax as he called out the Holy Name? Who knows? The Lord moves in mysterious ways. Or maybe he’s negotiating with the Pope for some high-value indulgences in exchange for who knows what? He could do with them.

Now you must understand that while all of this was going on Newt was leading the campaign in the House against Bill Clinton for his ‘immoral’ behavior. While simultaneously presiding over the passage of the Defense of Marriage Act. But he has taken, in fairness, firm and principled on several issues, such as the fate of Freddie Mac and Fannie May and House healthcare initiatives. He was so principled that it took him tens of millions of dollars to switch his support to the opposite side. Newt in fairness doesn’t give up his principles cheaply.

The scale, depth and sheer brazenness of his corruption were so bad that even the House of Representatives, that bought and paid for den of thieves and charlatans, could no longer stomach it and fined him $300,000, the first time in the House's 200-year history it had discipline­d a Speaker for ethical wrongdoing­.. Nice one, Newt! And this despite the fact that as Speaker of the House he had appointed the ethics committee.

Newt also likes wars, especially those being pushed by the Israelis, and is now a passionate advocate for attacking Iran. Of course, like all the rest of the chicken hawks, his passion for wars doesn’t extend to his actually taking part in them. But you kinda guessed that, didn’t you? He enthusiastically supported the Vietnam adventure but dodged the draft by marrying his teacher and deploying a range of other dodges. Still, he was a great supporter of ‘our brave troops’ and doubtless wept copious tears as the body bags landed by the tens of thousands.

But ironically, this high-minded patriotism was his undoing. Listen to Newt "I was doing things that were wrong, and yet, I was doing them because I worked too hard". Why? “Because I felt passionately ... about this country." Poor guy, he was wrapped so tight in the flag, it must have cut off the air supply to his head. So now we know that all the adultery, corruption, about-faces and multiple marriages occurred because he worked so hard for the America he loves so much! So can you imagine what he’ll be like if he has to handle a Presidential workload? Well Callista will be for the chop, that’s for sure. Meanwhile she’d better stay real close to her doctor. Have even the mildest sniffle checked out.

And talking of Presidential workloads I see that Gingrich is now leading the Republican field. As I asked in a recent post, can it be an accident that the American political system (especially the Republicans) throws up (appropriate that!) such a vile, degenerate, noxious, repulsive, ignorant and incoherent selection of candidates? Is the political system so debased that a country that has lead the world in almost every arena for the last century cannot do better? Or does it mean that the real wielders of power arrange things so that they have vulnerable bought-and-paid-for sock puppets in the White House at all times? Or more specifically that they want to ensure Four More Years for Barry by putting up an unelectable Repub candidate?

I don’t know, but either way the stench is sickening.
