Leslie's Omnibus


Quote of the Day:
As you can tell, my role is to encourage Barry’s worst instincts. I was the one who had him insult the Cambridge PD when his buddy, Skip the Scholar, threw a hissy fit. I was the one who got him to hand over the Christmas Bomber to Eric Holder, so they could tuck him into a comfy bed with the Bill of Rights wrapped around him. It’s not really that difficult. Insecure narcissists look for affirmation in their bowl of Wheaties. A few months ago when Barry was getting dressed for some speech, I grabbed his tie and ran away with it. He thought it was cute. That’s when he started showing up for major events in slacks and an open-necked shirt, like every day is casual Friday, even when responding to the latest unemployment report or a terrorist tries to blow up an airplane…

So if he makes the State of the Union address in a bathrobe and slippers, you can thank me. -- Bo Obama, Portugese Water Dog Extraordinaire

Giggle of the Day:


Ooooo! Way too tempting...

Of course Congress is exempting itself and Federal employees from the excise tax... or trying to. You expected otherwise?

The Daily Douche Bag:

Yes, Samantha Burton is a douche bag. No question about it, actually. BUT... Jana Bures-Foresthoefel, M.D., Willie Meggs, Esq. and the Hon. John Cooper are bigger ones. So there.

Speaking of douche bags, every single person who walked or drove by and did nothing in this case is an unspeakable douche bag. And that 15 year old kid? He's a monstrous douche bag.

I'd really like to be able to vote for Jim Ryan in Illinois, but given that he's a huge proponent of selling the rights to both the Illinois Tollway and the state Lotto, I just can't bring myself to do it.

Those of us who live in the Chicago area have already seen what happened when Mayor Daley sold off the rights to the Chicago Skyway and to the city parking meters. It ain't pretty. Daley leased the parking meters just a year ago, and the money is almost gone already.

Nope -- we didn't get nearly enough buck for the lessees' bang in either case, and I don't see it getting any better if it happens with state assets.

Sorry, Jim. I really can't back you on this. In fact, I'll fight you tooth and nail.

On the other hand, I also can't in any way, shape or form back Pat Quinn, who is once again playing Candy Man with money the state doesn't have:
Sneed hears Gov. Quinn is traveling to NIU to tell school officials this week of the $8.08 million refurbishment plans for Cole Hall, where five students were shot and killed and 18 others were wounded by a man who eventually killed himself on Feb. 14, 2008.
I went to NIU, and I disagree with the state funding this plan. Let the students and alumni do it. Let them decide what kind of memorial they want and let them figure out how to fund it.

And for cripe's sake pay off the debt we already owe to state employees and vendors before opening the state treasury for a project that could and should be directed and funded by the people most affected. The man simply cannot manage money.

And he doesn't know the meaning of "NO," either.

How much do you want to bet that of the 10 letters a day Chicken Little supposedly reads, this is not one or them -- ever.

(And, by the way, how insulting is it that Chicken Little thinks he can take the pulse of the country based on 10 letters a day that have been vetted by the crew of the S.S. Clusterf*ck?)

I can't tell you how heartened I am that Chicken Little has his finger on the pulse of America.
