Rule 5 -- Brinke Stevens!

If you visited a Times Square grindhouse anytime in the 80's or ever watched Skinemax Cinemax, you've seen Brinke Stevens.
With over 150 films to her name she is an icon of the B-movie era, a petite brunette with a gleefully wicked smile and a voice, as Raymond Chandler put it, "that could make a bishop kick out a stained glass window.
Whether victim, vamp or vixen with a great big gun, Brinke continues to work today, in features, cartoons, even historical documentaries.
With a degree in Marine Biology and substantial credits as a screenwriter, essayist and author of short fiction, she brings a degree of intelligence and wit to her performances not usually associated with the average scream queen, another aspect of the appeal of the petite actress, a torrid tempest in an A-cup who has outlasted many more pneumatically-blessed but gravitationally-vulnerable peers.
Of particular interest to the eeeeeevil conservative readers of this blog, Brinke donated over 24,000 copies of her comic miniseries to the troops through Operation Gratitude.
Brinke is the only "scream queen" ever condemned on the floor of the US Senate, by no less than Jesse Helms. Hard to see why.

Oral Evolutions...

Democrat Eric Massa is resigning from Congress in the face of allegations he sexually harassed a male staff member.  However, he seems to think it's because he has a real potty mouth, not what he wanted to put in it...

“I own this reality. There is no doubt in my mind that I did in fact, use language in the privacy of my own home and in my inner office that, after 24 years in the Navy, might make a Chief Petty Officer feel uncomfortable...”

Now in Massa's defense, I have to say that the standards of acceptable language in the US military have changed over the years.  So it's entirely possible a senior noncommissioned office might have construed his language as objectionable.

For example, a typical exchange over the hood of a HUMVEE* today might go something like this:

"Look at this, Specialist, you have over-tightened the lug nut on this tire and stripped the threads.  This is not work  to standard and is unacceptable."

"Top, I made a mistake and I will fix it immediately."

Now back in my day, over the hood of a jeep, the conversation would have gone something like this:

"Fuck! Fucking Fucker's Fucking Fucked!  Fucker!"

"Fuck me..."

If memory serves, this brings to something like 50 the number of  Democrats nationwide cutting and running on their own country, through retirement or resignation...

*Given the topic, I thought I'd avoid "Hummer..."

A Necessary Correction to Jason Horowitz of the Washington Post...

...and why Rahm Emanuel is not about to be thrown under the bus...

 "And on Tuesday, The Post led the paper with a purported news story by Jason Horowitz saying that a president with Obama’s “detached, professorial manner”"drunken, chainsmoking incompetence" needed “a political enforcer” somebody who "showed up sober once in awhile" like Emanuel to have a chance of succeeding..."  

No need to thank me, Jason.  Mind you, with staff screwups like the AF 1 New York terrorist flyover and the  WH gate crashers under his belt, Rahm is no Al Haig as Chiefs of Staffs go...

"Overtime? Against Americans? Wimps..."

"We'll just hold onto those testicles for you for awhile,eh?"

Separated at Birth?

Senator Jay Rockefeller (D): "Bush used 'psychological pressure' to make us vote for the Iraq War!"
John McCain (R?!?!): "Ben Bernanke 'misled' me about the bailout!'

Dudes, you're gajillion-term US Senators.  For crying out loud, ONE OF YOU take a little responsibility for your own decisions!

And as the Dynasty sinks slowly in the West...

Joe Kennedy III cancels Congressional Campaign...


Damn, he's good...

This call for Rangel to give up his chairmanship is meaningless, of course. It's a standard Democrat ploy.

Back when Barney Frank got caught with a gay brothel running out of his home and was censured for it Congress, he insisted that was punishment enough; he would never be able to hold a position of high influence in Congress.  How'd that work out?

Back when Pat "Leaky" Leahy had  to resign as head of the Intelligence Committee because his big mouth and desire to see his name in the papers got American agents killed, he was supposed to be finished. How'd that work out?

Dianne Feinstein had to resign her chairmanship of a VA committee after she got caught channeling somewhere between $1.3 and $3 BILLION dollars to companies she and her husband had an interest in. She's still on thecommittee, and she and her Westside backers are tied into the effort to steal land deeded to veterans in perptuity and hand it over to LA Developers.  How's that working out?

If Rangel wasn't anything more than a collection of appetites puffing out a badly-stuffed suit, he'd do what any smart Democrat does, make a token resignation and lay low 'til the smoke clears.  His constituents, the same NY morons who think Obama is going to pay their mortgages out of his 'stash,' will never vote him out of office.

Fox and Pelosi Get Stoopid together...

Note:  I lifted the whole thread off Fox because their website pissed me off when it insisted my Los Angeles Zip Code does not exist.  If you want to comment on it at the Fox site, click on the link.

Pelosi: Lawmakers Should Sacrifice Jobs for Health Care (AP)

House Speaker Pelosi says lawmakers aren't in Washington for job security but 'to do the job for the American people.'

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi urged her colleagues to back a major overhaul of U.S. health care even if it threatens their political careers, a call to arms that underscores the issue's massive role in this election year.

Lawmakers sometimes must enact policies that, even if unpopular at the moment, will help the public, Pelosi said in an interview being broadcast Sunday the ABC News program "This Week."

"We're not here just to self-perpetuate our service in Congress," she said. "We're here to do the job for the American people."

It took courage for Congress to pass Social Security and Medicare, which eventually became highly popular, she said, "and many of the same forces that were at work decades ago are at work again against this bill."

It's unclear whether Pelosi's remarks will embolden or chill dozens of moderate House Democrats who face withering criticisms of the health care proposal in visits with constituents and in national polls. Republican lawmaker unanimously oppose the health care proposals, and many GOP strategists believe voters will turn against Democrats in the November elections.

Pelosi, from San Francisco, is more liberal than scores of her Democratic colleagues. But she generally walks a careful line between urging them to back left-of-center policies and giving them a green light to buck party leaders to improve their re-election hopes.

Her comments to ABC, in the interview released Sunday, seemed to acknowledge the widely held view that Democrats will lose House seats this fall -- maybe a lot. They now control the chamber 255 to 178, with two vacancies. Pelosi stopped well short of suggesting Democrats could lose their majority, but she called on members of her party to make a bold move on health care with no prospects of GOP help.

"Time is up," she said. "We really have to go forth."

Her comments somewhat echoed those of President Obama, who said at the end of last week's bipartisan health care summit that Congress should act on the issue and let voters render their verdicts. "That's what elections are for," he said.

The White House says Obama, perhaps on Wednesday, will announce a "way forward" on health care. He, Pelosi, and Senate Democratic leaders have left little doubt that they hope to pass a Democratic-crafted bill under "budget reconciliation" rules that would bar Republican filibusters in the Senate. It's unclear whether Pelosi can muster the needed votes in the House.

White House officials say they will redouble efforts to remind voters that the Senate passed an Obama-backed health care bill in December, with a super majority of 60 votes. The new plan calls for the House to pass that bill and send it to Obama's desk, and then use Senate budget reconciliation rules to make several changes demanded by House Democrats.

Following a Republican victory in Massachusetts last month, Democrats now control 59 of the Senate's 100 seats, one vote short of the number needed to block GOP filibusters.

Pelosi told CNN that "in a matter of days" Democrats will have specific legislative language on health care to show to the public and to wavering lawmakers. She predicted voters will warm up to the bill once they understand its details.

"When we have a bill," she said, "you can bake the pie, you can sell the pie. But you have to have a pie to sell."

Obama and Democratic lawmakers say they may add several more Republican ideas to their legislative package, even if it's unlikely to attract a single GOP vote. One idea, by Sen. Tom Coburn, R-Okla., would focus on battling waste and fraud in the medical system.

The main elements of the Democratic plan are known, and opposed by Republicans in Congress. It would insure about 30 million more Americans over 10 years with subsidies for the poor and a new requirement for nearly everyone to carry health insurance.

It would also bar some insurance company practices, such as denying coverage to people with medical problems. And it would establish government-run exchanges to help individuals and small businesses obtain insurance policies, although it would exclude the "public option" that many liberals wanted.
When did Fox become NBC? That is a gross misrepresentation of the bill in those last two paragraphs. If I want uncritical repetition of AP propaganda I could buy the LA Times.

These bills will STILL leave millions of Americans uncovered. Amerians who currently have coverage will lose it,as companies realize it's cheaper to pay the penalties than pay for health plans. Americans who don't need expensive coverage will be forced to buy it, or pay penalties. Americans who lose jobs and any coverage they might have will be forced either buy coverage or pay penatlies while out of work and financially distressed.

This is a BAD bill and it should go away. Period.

And the AMAZING thing is WHO Pelosi is asking to take this risk. This is a women who has steered over $200 million in no-bid contracts to companies she, her husband,or her family have interests in, whose own Cogressional seat MIGHT be at risk if the head of NAMBLA ran against her but not before, and she's asking all these other Democrats to risk their ricebowls, their kickbacks, their safe little gerrymandered empires, for her and Barack Obama? Ain't gonna happen.
