Sodaphobic mayor endorses donuts

Awkwaaard... Sodaphobic Mayor Bloomberg has authored a proclamation on behalf of  National Donut Day,  Friday, after restricting sodas to 16ozs on  Thursday.

The Dung Beetle Award goes to...

 The Academy of Dung Beetles' award is being supersized and rolled towards New York Mayor Michael "Nanny" Bloomberg for his outrageous overreach in regulating the  quantities of soda people are allowed to purchase. If someone chooses to buy a giant soda to last them through a long movie, that should be their choice. Hizzoner knows best and you, a lowly citizen, may not question him.  The Big Apple? Fuggedaboudit...now it's the Small Snapple.

Barack Obama's Diary

Dear Diary: We had George and Laura Bush for lunch and  the unveiling of their official portraits. Awkwaard. I had blamed him  for everything from drought to the $5 trillion I added to the deficit.  George is a nice dude, but not the sharpest knife in the drawer, as I am, so he was probably just intimidated by My razor-sharp intellect: he was calm and polite when I expected heated accusations of Me  being 'all hat and no cattle.'
Unlike George, the Poles are  touchy as heck. My media guys brushed off my 'Polish deathcamp' comment as a simple misstatement. But the Poles weren't  buying it: I had a message from the Foreign Minister, then from the Prime Minister,  now even the President  is getting in on the act. Don't they realize that I can't sully My immaculate Presidency  by admitting  a mistake? Get real.
Michelle is back from her travels  and already in bed so I will now tuck her in, as is my wont. Next a prayer to my exalted self and then  I, too, will retire to the presidential Tempurpedic and the soothing  touch of Boo-boo, my blanky. Barry luv Boo-boo who keeps away nasty dreams. Um-num-num-um zzzzzz...

Obama's secret kill list

Judge Andrew Napolitano, quoted by Fox News: "We have known for some time that President Obama is waging a private war. By that I mean he is using the CIA on his own -- and not the military after congressional authorization -- to fire drones at thousands of persons in foreign lands, usually while they are riding in a car or a truck.

"He has done this both with the consent and over the objection of the governments of the countries in which he has killed. He doesn’t want to talk about this, but he doesn’t deny it....Can the president legally do this? In a word: No." Read it all.

Obama's tax on saving lives

Nothing illustrates the immorality of Obamacare better than the medical device tax: taxing already-highly-expensive  equipment that is often essential to keep patients alive: for example  an implanted pacemaker/defibrillator  already costs tens of thousands of dollars. America leads the world in these devices and manufacturers say  that this tax, combined with normal corporate and state taxes, will force them to manufacture offshore and cost 40,000 American jobs. Congress is  today considering repealing the tax, due in 2013.   If it stands, there will be an additional,  life-saving, reason to vote  for Romney in November. More here

Barack Obama's Diary

Dear Diary. A good day, in which The New York Times  portrayed me as a bold and fearless leader  who insists on being at the helm of  the process which  decides  whom the CIA will take out with drones and Hellfire missiles. Yes, I am indeed such a decisive leader and history will remember me as such. I  predict  I will eventually  appear on Mount Rushmore if there's still a vacant section of rock face wide enough to accommodate my magnificent ears. When it comes to taking out Al Qaeda I am become Death, the destroyer of worlds. 
Talking about destroyers of worlds, Joe Biden has taken the week off, which is a huge relief: I won't suddenly have to come out in support of  humans marrying penguins or something equally bizarre [you never know with Joe]. 
I presented Medal of Freedom Awards today and the Poles took exception to the fact that I referred to Polish death camps rather than ' Nazi death camps in occupied Poland.' What's wrong with these people? I know all about  the start of WW2 and that British dude Churchill who  predicted  'peace in our time.' before  the Spanish invaded Austria. I had that loser's bust removed from the Oval Office  when I moved in and had it returned to the British embassy. Those strange Brits took umbrage  at this for no sane reason-- heck they  the got the  daggone bust back didn't they?
M. is in New York promoting her veggie book, so I am going to bed early without needing to tuck her in as I usually do.  Boo-boo, my blankey, awaits and his caress will keep away the scary monsters hiding under the presidential Tempurpedic. It beats me how such huge, terrifying monsters  manage to squeeze  in there.  Barry luv Boo-boo um-num-num-um...zzzzzzz...

Glorious Rant of the Day

"Barack Obama’s idea of national security is to confront our increasingly blood-thirsty enemies with a ‘progressive’ army filled with homosexuals and women, nourished on tofu and bean sprouts, and supported by a solar-powered air force and a navy whose ancient ships are fueled by distilled pond scum (manufactured, preferably, by one of Obama’s political cronies). This is what’s going to strike terror into the black hearts of America’s foes?  The only observers an Obama-style military strikes fear into are the taxpayers it’s supposed to be defending." Read it all.

Barack Obama's Diary

Dear Diary:  I had Memorial Day duties this morning and praised the courage of our troops. I know all about courage.  Hemingway defined it as 'grace under pressure.' I learned 'grace under pressure' while smoking weed with the  Choom Gang.  You need it when your minivan is full of comrades smoking joints and you suddenly see blue lights flashing behind you.  That's when the 'grace under pressure' comes in:  Don't slow down immediately. Open all the windows,  tell everyone to  flick their joints out and  then let the wind clear the air. Spray with Febreze and only then pull over.  Stay calm as the cop walks up.  Look innocent and say politely: "Aloha, Ossifer can I help you?  Me? Slurring my words? No, Ossifer.  I'll drive carefully now, thank you, Ossifer." That's grace under pressure. And I have it in abundance.  Sometimes, I defy Michelle and have an extra scoop of Academia Nut. Sometimes I even disagree with Hillary. Landing on  a beach under machine-gun fire? Piece of cake.' Yikes! What was that clicking noise? Oh, it's just Michelle turning on her bedside light. Time to say a prayer to myself and go to bed and cuddle Boo-boo my blankey ....um-num-num-um. Brave Boo-boo scares away nasty monsters under brave Barry's bed. Um-num-um...zzzzzz...

Dear Diary: I had an awesome day with a clear schedule and even managed to escape the media horde on the way back from a round of golf at Andrews. No doubt they will be speculating that I was enjoying  a joint on the course [ as if! ] or 'roofing'  in The Beast on the journey  home.  My weed-smoking days in Hawaii  with the Choom Gang have been the subject of much hilarity  this week, due to an upcoming book that attempts to explore how I became such a great international statesman.  M. and the girls are at a Beyonce concert in Atlantic City.

His jailing – in a farcical ‘trial’ without a judge or his own lawyer -- is the clearest demonstration that Pakistan, which the west treats as an ally... is actually its enemy. When Dr Afridi was jailed, US security officials expressed horror, as well they might. But was Dr Afridi actually betrayed by the Obama administration itself?"   More here

Barack Obama's Diary

Dear Diary:  It's midnight and we've we  just  returned home from California. During a fundraiser at a theater in Redwood, while the audience was being warmed up with a stirring  Obamarama movie, I seized the moment to go out back and smoke a cigarette with one of my Secret Service detail. I was  just enjoying the nicotine rush  when a staffer ran up yelling: "Mr. President  you've missed your cue... you're needed right now on stage." Yikes!  I hurried inside, smooshing out the  cigarette and exhaling smoke on the way. When I did my usual energetic,  youthful, light-footed bounce on stage, the audience was unaware of the backstage drama.  My staff kept the MSM at  bay by explaining my slow response  as simple fatigue.  Awkwaard! So far, that seems to have kept the hacks off the scent of tobacco. Bloggers won't be so easy to fool, but it will be old news by morning when I can rely on the lapdogs on Today to bury it. Talking of lapdogs,  it was good to be among be  among Californians. Governor Jerry Brown is almost as good at deficit spending as I am. It's late and  Michelle is calling  out to me, so it's time for my usual  quick prayer of thanks to myself and so to bed and the gentle touch of my blankey, Boo-boo.

Barack Obama's Diary

Cher Journal: which is 'Dear Diary' in French for the benefit of all you non-French-speaking historians who will research these writings in centuries to come when my presidency will still  outshine the sun.  I met Francois Hollande, the new French president, as scheduled this morning. I greeted him in French.  He looked at me with naked disbelief which could only mean he was astonished at my fluency, which  showed my intellectual brilliance after only a few minutes with a French phrase book. He replied: "No,  Monsieur Obama,  I do not know where to obtain a corkscrew for a bottle of burgundy." Which I found strange. But these frogs are all weird, as I know from Sarkozy, who always replied  "merde" to all my suggestions which, according to my phrasebook, is "poop," which must be a mistake. 
Later, I welcomed all the G8 leaders to Camp David, except Vlad the Impaler who is sulking in Moscow after snubbing my invitation, which is a pity as he would have enhanced the optics, as Axelrod would say.   In the middle of my electrifying speech I glanced up from the teleprompter, only to notice some of them nodding with eyes shut.  Jet-lag can be  a bitch. Later, we  tried to solve the problems of the world, over dinner. I told them that their problems were  the result of them borrowing too little and not spending enough. They fell silent, out of respect for my intellect, so I excused myself, went to bed, said my prayer to myself and took out Boo-boo my blankey and caressed my lips with him.  Barry luv Boo-boo.. um-num-num-um...zzzzzz...

Mitt wimps out

Mitt Romney has rejected a SuperPAC  campaign highlighting the Rev Jeremiah Wright's inflammatory ["God damn America"] rhetoric and the truly frightening influences on Obama as a young man. These  influences were clearly fundamental in  forming Obama's world view.  They are at the heart of what many conservatives and  independents fear: that at his core Obama  does not  admire  this country, its institutions and its free enterprise system. McCain made the same decision  to play softball in 2008,  and look at the incalculable price we have paid. Elections are no time to play Mr Nice Guy. This exactly what many feared about Romney: that he is a RINO,  that there is no "there" there and no fire in his belly.  He is still only the "presumptive nominee". Remember that.
