Noted advocate of Big (Republican) Government calls opponents of Big (Democratic) Government ‘insane’

You can have anything you want, except less government, says David Brooks:

This is the genius who came up with “National Greatness” — the notion that the GOP should seek to outbid Democrats in terms of bigger government during good times. So now, of course, with the federal budget a red tide of massive deficits as far as the eye can see, it’s “insane” to propose reduction of any federal spending anywhere.

It’s OK. The New York Times is in freefall and Brooks will soon be out of work. He’s already irrelevant. Kind of hard being a useful idiot who is no longer useful. He beclowns himself.

The sadistic pleasure of ‘progressivism’

Remember when Eliot Spitzer’s anti-capitalist crusades made him a darling of the “progressive” Left?

“I was never fully undressed. He was naked. He was perspiring a lot. He was holding me down. He pinned me to the bed. That didn’t bother me. But when he grabbed my throat, that was too much. I remember trying to push myself up off the bed, which made him apply more pressure. I’ve never been worried about my safety, but I was really concerned.”

Strangling hookers. Something symbolic there, eh?

The Doltish Duo

By Smitty

The Reid, Pelosi Swearing Match is just another brick in the wall for The Congress That Shall Live in Infamy. But this brace of boobs didn’t just show up in January. No, their consistent non-command of effective leadership is such that there is a body of classic abuse just waiting to be linked.

You, Mr. Reid, are the target of among the more majestic rants I’ve ever heard:

(Aside: how many new PJTV subscribers would it take to secure a weekly Miller Time segment, one wonders?)

Slightly less caustic in approach is Kristen Wiig’s demolition of Nancy Pelosi, just after the 2006 election. This clip is from SNL, and the implication that the House of Representatives is an S’n’M dungeon under her tenure makes it NSFW.

How does that lady keep a straight face while serving up that material?

‘The elite journalists, I repeat, got Obama wrong . . .’

” . . . The troglodytes got him right. As our national drama continues to unfold, bear that in mind.”

‘Strange new respect’ for Frum

Career role modeling for Republicans whose lifelong ambition is to be published in Newsweek.

Donald Douglas has some thoughts. I’m just trying not to think about it at all for fear that it will drive me utterly mad. It’s like seeing the phrase “menage a trois” on a blog post with links to Jim McGreevey and Eliot Spitzer. Not enough brain bleach on the planet to erase that unseemly image from one’s mind. Some people are just sociopaths . . .

‘As the Britons have just become aware . . .

“. . . Michelle Obama is one of those people who argues that a racist incident can be said to have occurred whenever the putative victim feels that it has occurred.”

Rule 5 Sunday

Originally inspired by Pirate’s Cove Patriotic Pinup series, and in accordance with Rule 5 of “How to Get a Million Hits on Your Blog,” we are proud once again to bring the weekly Sunday sampler of delicious babe-blogging:

Via Convervatives4Palin:

“Too hot for the White House?”

For my own original contribution, here’s a photo from CPAC:

Jimmie Bise of Sundries Shack, Suzanna “Clever S.” Logan and Duane Lester of All-American Blogger.

If your contribution to Rule 5 Sunday has been overlooked, please e-mail me the URL of your babe-blogging, and I’ll try to update to include you.

Also, if anybody wants to get original and creative, try this: Order a T-shirt — either in the Ordinary American design or the Equality Is For Ugly Losers design — and get a hottie to model it for a photo. (If you are yourself a hottie, model it yourself.) Bonus points for such photos in which the hottie is modeling with guns, motorcycles, cool cars, or guitars.

UPDATE: Serr8d unabashedly tries to see how close to NSFW he can get. But if you’re working on Sunday . . .

UPDATE II: Doug Mataconis gives you an eyeful of the sinister neocon cabal’s secret weapon, Bar Rafaeli. And if they ever decide they want a Gentile prime minister . . . remember, that’s only a hypothetical.

BTW, I’ve got to take my three youngest kids on the Bataan Death March a Sunday hike up South Mountain, so if there any late entries for Rule 5 Sunday, e-mail them to Smitty. If I drop dead of a massive coronary halfway up the mountain, just keep hitting the tip jar, people. It’s For The Children!

UPDATE III: Did you know Melissa Rycroft of “The Bachelor” has had breast reduction surgery? And did you know such operations would be outlawed by the first executive decree of the Gentile prime minister?

UPDATE IV: While I was hiking the kids up and down the mountain — all three made it home safely — Bill Dupray at Patriot Room put up some pictures of Brazilian Carnival hotties.

Blame Limbaugh First

“This is all a White House distraction tactic, and it’s being executed by friendly media taking directions. The left online, naturally, jumped on board faster than a Democrat on a filmmaker. It’s simple to understand, really. They don’t want you to think about Obama’s broken campaign promises and inept first month. So they need a distraction.”

A heavy personal sacrifice

At the urging of a mutual friend, I’ve decided to give up Ross Douthat-bashing for Lent. I’m not repenting or recanting, but I’m just swearing off until Easter. My friend tells me that I’m undermining my standing with Respected Conservative Intellectuals by this anti-Douthat jihad.

(Yeah, it’s a bad thing to be picking on a kid. The phrase “whited sepulchres” ring a bell there, buddy?)

But, OK, enough of that. I’ll have to find other targets for unfair ad hominem invective to tide me over until Easter. So if any of you upstart punks out there wander into the crosshairs, don’t blame me when the Mother Of All Fiskings comes down on your head. You have been warned.

And if, on Easter morning, Douthat finally looks down from the lofty heights of Fallowsium, and condescends to link a state-school alumnus, you’ll know that this unprecedented occurence is a miraculous omen, perhaps even a sign of the impending Apocalypse.

O, ye of little faith!
