"On your knees before me, little man! We couldn't humble real
democrats like Roosevelt or Truman, but you-- piece of rice cake!"
If any of you remember the funny My Favorite Year, there is a wonderful scene where Mark Lynn-Baker, playing a young Mel Brooks working on Sid Caesar's Your Show of Shows, takes Peter O'Toole, playing a drunken and over the hill Eroll Flynn, to his parents' home in Brooklyn. Naturally the neighbors freak out, including one woman from upstairs. Desperate to impress O'Toole with her sophistication, she shows up for supper in the fanciest dress she has -- her wedding gown.
Barack Obama owns that wedding gown. He is frantic to show the world what a sharp operator he is, but succeeds only in demonstrating again and again that he peaked at gauche nebbish.
Still, he's probably used to that position from all the time he's spent shining Rahm Emanuel's shoes...

Obama to call domestic economic summit of business, labor, government and wonks in December.
HT: Paco Enterprises
"Obama said the White House forum will gather CEOs, small business owners, economists, financial experts and representatives from labor unions and nonprofit groups "to talk about how we can work together to create jobs and get this economy moving again."
"We all know that there are limits to what government can and should do, even during such difficult times. But we have an obligation to consider every additional, responsible step that we can take to encourage and accelerate job creation in this country," he said."
Likely outcomes of domestic economic summit:
(from most to least possible)
Business leaders, left, stand up at Obama
domestic economic summit
1. Obama signs executive order banning "right to work legislation." Makes wearing a SEIU armband mandatory for all citizens as sign of 'economic unity'.
2. Obama deeds Texas and Tennessee to California and Michigan to increase their revenue base. Mississippi and Alabama suddenly become top economic growth states in nation.
3. Through a White House 'screw-up with the invitations,' business leaders and experts actually critical of government policies actually show up. Not wasting a crisis, the Administration uses the chance to identify which business leaders and wonks are willing to stand up to Obama. New Czars are appointed specifically to regulate their industries and Rahm Emanuel and David Axelrod are instructed to coordinate the media/MoveOn campaign to villify the opponents.
4. When Jake Tapper tries to interview business leaders storming out of the meeting, he is accidentally run over by a SEIU-driven garbage truck.
5. An asteroid hits DC during the summit and the economy is saved.

WESTMORELAND. O that we now had here
But one ten thousand of those men in England
That do no work to-day!
KING. What's he that wishes so?
My cousin Westmoreland? No, my fair cousin;
If we are mark'd to die, we are enow
To do our country loss; and if to live,
The fewer men, the greater share of honour.
God's will! I pray thee, wish not one man more.
By Jove, I am not covetous for gold,
Nor care I who doth feed upon my cost;
It yearns me not if men my garments wear;
Such outward things dwell not in my desires.
But if it be a sin to covet honour,
I am the most offending soul alive.
No, faith, my coz, wish not a man from England.
God's peace! I would not lose so great an honour
As one man more methinks would share from me
For the best hope I have. O, do not wish one more!
Rather proclaim it, Westmoreland, through my host,
That he which hath no stomach to this fight,
Let him depart; his passport shall be made,
And crowns for convoy put into his purse;
We would not die in that man's company
That fears his fellowship to die with us.
This day is call'd the feast of Crispian.
He that outlives this day, and comes safe home,
Will stand a tip-toe when this day is nam'd,
And rouse him at the name of Crispian.
He that shall live this day, and see old age,
Will yearly on the vigil feast his neighbours,
And say 'To-morrow is Saint Crispian.'
Then will he strip his sleeve and show his scars,
And say 'These wounds I had on Crispian's day.'
Old men forget; yet all shall be forgot,
But he'll remember, with advantages,
What feats he did that day. Then shall our names,
Familiar in his mouth as household words-
Harry the King, Bedford and Exeter,
Warwick and Talbot, Salisbury and Gloucester-
Be in their flowing cups freshly rememb'red.
This story shall the good man teach his son;
And Crispin Crispian shall ne'er go by,
From this day to the ending of the world,
But we in it shall be remembered-
We few, we happy few, we band of brothers;
For he to-day that sheds his blood with me
Shall be my brother; be he ne'er so vile,
This day shall gentle his condition;
And gentlemen in England now-a-bed
Shall think themselves accurs'd they were not here,
And hold their manhoods cheap whiles any speaks
That fought with us upon Saint Crispin's day.
"I've walked into the room and some white Republicans have been scared of me."
...and Erkel mugged Bernard Goetz.
FUN FACTS ABOUT MICHAEL STEELE:
When Chuck Norris heard Michael Steele was a big fan, his dick shrank a full quarter of an inch out of sheer embarrassment.
When Sarah Palin sings karaoke, Michael Steele hits the high notes for her.
When a two-bit rapper told Michael Steele the GOP was a racist party, he forgot to mention that whole "freeing the slaves/breaking the Voting Rights Act filibuster' thing... oh, wait, that's not made up...
When Michael Steele heard about Dick Cheney's "Night of the Cougar-man" hooker rampage, he went out and bought an anime cat-girl costume.
When his Democratic senate race opponent's campaign dressed him up as a minstrel, he just took it rather than marching an angry mob on their office... oh, wait, that's not made up either.
Got any more fun facts about Michael Steele? Post them here!
UPDATE: When the Boy Scouts heard Michael Steele wanted to address this year's Jamboree, they hired back three gay scoutmasters to protect them...

The heretic cartoonist Christopher Muir has jeopardized American relations with the Arab world by his shameless exploitation of female nudity in his so-called "comic" strip!
It is bad enough that he flouts the
strictest laws firm benevolent guidance of the Holy Quran, by depicting the human form at all, a blatant act of idolatry...
Or that he treats sex as sport for humor, rather than a grimly serious obligation for any decent woman...
He even goes so far as to indulge in lewd double entendres, tricking virtuous men into sinning in their own minds!
The infidel even advocates shameless women prepare themselves to resist the will of men, by force if they so choose...
But truly,Muir's greatest sin of all is...
