Sullivan’s Obsessions.

The Palins, titled “Another Palin Pregnancy”:

And in classic Palin fashion. Track’s bride looks more pregnant two months after her marriage than Sarah looked at allegedly eight months with Trig. But the family-for-abstinence keeps the show on the road. But when will Track join the crusade?

Really… That’s what you got? The one member of the family who has done his level best not to insert himself in the limelight, the one who seems to be doing things the right way… And then Sullivan links to this snarky Gawker tripe!

…The picture above of “Britta Pie,” which was posted on a Wasilla friend’s Facebook wall, confirms the news she’s expecting. Britta looks to be several months along—perhaps more than two months?

Britta’s friends responded to the Facebook pictures with elation. But given the timing of Britta’s pregnancy, the happy couple may want to tell Sarah Palin to shut up the next time she champions abstinence-only education or Bristol sermonizes against extramarital sex, lest the conception of another Palin grandchild and the rationale behind another well-publicized Palin marriage fall into question.

The Palins did not respond to our request for comment.

Gee, you wonder why? I’m not a Palin fan, but jeez, this is just ridiculous!

Next on the plate is this bit of fun:

My view is that Obama has essentially won the argument but not yet the fight…

Gee, now there’s a surprise!

But the GOP believe they can destroy the US and global economy and from the wreckage ensure Obama is not re-elected. That is their sole true guiding principle. They terrify me.

Now, you may absolutely disagree with the supposed solutions that the Grand Ol’ Party puts on the plate, that you think / know their offered solutions won’t work, but there is no evidence to support the charge they don’t believe that what they advocate wouldn’t work! Do you really think the believe no one would notice that, after they get their way, then the economy tanks, and no one would blame them???? They believe their policies are the best way to start a strong recovery in this wretched economy, just as Democrats believe theirs is the best. To say the GOP are PURPOSELY AND KNOWINGLY destroy the US and global economy, well, that’s just partisan hackery at its worst. I’m pretty sure this would win his Michael Moore Award if he considered give his own awards to himself.

On the unwatchable video from the almost certainly short liked Al Sharpton Show – Great YouTube comment left by sksheild3:

Perhaps, not the best venue to sort out a solution to their topic. And Mo’s educational background is impressive. He has a broad view of the elements that interact to form an economy. BUT, being better educated does not mean that Mo’s conclusions are correct. If that were true, we wouldn’t need more than 1 economist.?

MSNBC… What Were You Thinking??????

And I thought former CNN’er Elliot Spitzer was bad!

@ 4:11 – Rev Al, yelling: “We’re not crazy here”

Rep Mo Brooks, doing his worst Ben Stein deadpan responds – “Well, I don’t want to get into your mental state…”

Sharpton, yelling – “Don’t bring up my mental state…”

Brooks, doing his worst Ben Stein deadpan responds – “Well, you said you were crazy…”

Sharpton yelling – “I didn’t say I, I said we, the people of the United States…”

This is a FAIL on so many levels. The term “We” includes the person using that word. Rep Mo Brooks should stick to economics and try not to be funny. Who’s brilliant idea was it to give Al Sharpton his own show????? He’s like Sean Hannity turned up to 11… Then cranked around one more time just for good measure! And they just keep dancing around the one obvious conclusion…. The policy choices cemented in stone by both parties are flawed and have failed!

Hey, it could be worse… Spitzer? No, tried and flailed, and that’s not worse…. Carville??? No, I like Carville, but he’s on CNN… Robert Kennedy Jr… OK. Now THAT’S worse!!!!!

This is completely unwatchable! Almost makes me miss Keith Olbermann…… Almost!!!

As Europe continues to go to hell in a handbasket, we get THIS bit of disturbing news. If the incidences where people are having to buy staple like food and gas with their credit card are going up, then we are that much closer to those people defaulting on those cards, because, well, if they can’t afford to pay for food and gas out of pocket, then where the hell do we think they are going to get the money to pay the credit card bill when it’s due at the end of the month?????

Many years ago, I was in this situation, and know what happens first hand. You only pay the minimum due, if that, because that’s all you’ve got. Then, at some point, you will find you can’t even do that. I got lucky and landed on my feet. But that was during an economy on the rise, where job creation was increasing and I eventually landed on my feet.

And then there is this amazing quote from Fed chair Ben Burnake:

“The anticipated pickups in economic activity and job creation, together with the expected easing of price pressures, should bolster real household income, confidence, and spending,”

Why is he still there?

Yep… We’re in the best of hands!

From The “The More Things Change….” Dept:

Europe: 1920’s – After the extremely expensive World War 1, Europe’s financial system was in tatters. Germany was expected to pay reparations to cover the costs of restoring economies in neighboring countries, due to a war they helped create and perpetuate.

Fast Forward some 90 years.

Europe: 2011 – After the meltdown of worldwide financial markets, Europe’s financial system is in tatters. Germany is expected to finance and pay the bill to cover the cost of failed socialistic governments in neighboring countries, a problem not of their making.

The last time this happened, where the rest of Europe attempted to leach off of Germany to try and rebuild itself, it created a nationalistic backlash within Germany, and resulted in the rise of the NAZI movement, Hitler, and World War II.

Here’s hoping that history does not repeat.

How Europeans negotiate: “Pull my finger…” “No, you pull MY finger….”

Before entering the tough Greece bailout negotiations, Sarkozy and Merkel both put on their best GW Bush face.
