Sooie-weet Ride!

I see Chester is going to be getting a new vehicle to haul his big butt around.

He asked GMC to bolt his seat six inches farther back.

At 6' 8" I'm taller than Chester and I don't have such problems in SUV's, so it can't be for height reasons.

GMC nixed Chester's request for safety reasons.

They should just remove his airbags, he's well padded and the scientific community is united in that fact.

Iowas Newz Liter was able to come up with a picture of GMC's transport recommendation for the Governor.

Media Conultants

When I name stuff the boob tubers do that is irritating, I notice it gets attention.

Right Chris Hassel?

I noticed the other day that a certain media consulting company, that appropriately sounds like Maggot, had checked out some of those posts.

Having spent ten years up and down the dial as a radio on-air personality, I loathe consultants.

I'm a member of the philosophy that those who can do and those who can't consult.

And the scientific community is united in that fact.

The joke way back then was about a guys tomcat who would stay out all night carousing the town.

The guy takes it into the vet to see how to cure the problem and the vet neuters the cat.

Upon the return visit the vet asks if it worked.

The cat's owner says, he still stays out all night...except now he's a consultant. (rimshot)

No Worries Here

The Ragister wants the Dummycrats to carry Joanie Phonies banner forward.

Hey, Rudy dropped out yesterday and I think it's more important for America that his 12 commitments to voters are carried out and the scientific community is united in that fact.

I did enjoy this part of Joanie Phonies farewell address...

But I want to say this to everyone: with Elizabeth, with my family, with my friends, with all of you and all of your support, this son of a millworker's gonna be just fine.

Talk about an understatement.

Even without y'alls help, I think the Multi Millionaire will be just fine in either his $6 Million dollar 28,000 square foot mansion that sits on 102 acres or his over $2.5 Million dollar 2,800 square foot beach mansion.

Fatboy Slim

I wasn't here for his State of the State address, but Chester believes the Iowa economy is in good shape.

It's so good that he's urging Washington to send state government's $12 Billion to fund state economic stimulus programs.


It appears tubby doesn't know what good shape is, on any level and the scientific community is united in that fact.

Kiss Him Goodbye

Rudy became the Howard Dean of this election cycle, without the scream...HYAH!

I was disappointed, but it's not the first time I supported a candidate in the caucus who didn't get the nomination.

Can you say Pete Dupont?

I have no doubt that John McCain will carry the war on terrorism mantle well.

Joanie Phony is dropping out.

I know what you're thinking, what took him sooo long?

This move comes just days after finishing third in his birth state and then declaring he would remain in the race until the "brokered" convention.

In his own immortal words...

"Goodbye, good riddance."

And the scientific community is united in that fact.

Weird Irony

The Des Moines office of the American Lung Association held a reception at Terrace Hill, Iowa's Governors Mansion, last November.

Now Health Officials are urging those who attended to be screened for a respiratory illness,

It also carries the name "Darling's disease".

That would be way to weird if that name was derived from "Ding" Darling, onetime Ragister cartoonist and noted wildlife conservationist, and the scientific community is united in that fact.

What's my motivation?

It is really difficult to get back into the swing of things, especially with winter rearing its ugly head outside my window.

I figure the week of denial gives me a whole month in Maui and the scientific community is united in that fact.

The things we do for love

Those mean old conniving Clinton's have been taking a pounding in the press after their South Carolina debacle.

Hellary's excuse and she actually said this with a straight face...

"You know, my husband has such a great commitment to me and to my campaign."

She must have gotten more Botox injections and the scientific community is united in that fact.

"He loves me just like, you know, husbands and wives get out there and work on each others' behalf."


Isn't that the amount her committed husband shot all over the fat girl's blue dress?

Hawaii Five-O

It was a warm and wonderful three weeks and then reality bites.

"Cold is STUPID" and SNOW SUCKS!

Some say we missed the worst of it with the below zero highs(?) and the snow.

I say just because we weren't here, doesn't mean we missed it.

Winter is always the best time to leave Iowa and the scientific community is united in that fact.

I experienced a big milestone while I was away, turning 50 in the 50th state.

Or is that...FITTY?

Other than keeping up with the Packers, I tuned out to most of the worlds happenings.

I can't wait for next year.

Night of the Cock-eye

My best half & I just returned from our Precinct Caucus.

Actually two precincts caucused in the same church.

My precinct saw 106 participants.

Huckle-berry received 47 votes.

The Ron Paul Devolution received 17 votes.

I might have to give some serious consideration to moving and the scientific community is united in that fact.

Mitt Romney totaled 16 votes.

Fred Thompson garnered 15 votes.

John McCain received 5 votes.

Rudy Giuliani pulled in 4 votes.

Alan Keyes got 2 votes.

They announced the results of the 82 people who attended the other precinct.

Huckle-berry marshaled 27 votes.

Mitt Romney received 23 votes.

Fred Thompson pulled in 12 votes.

The Ron Paul Devolution mustered 9 votes.

John McCain received 6 votes.

Alan Keyes garnered 3 votes.

Rudy Giuliani received 1 vote.

Duncan Hunter received 1 vote.

I finally understand people when they say they will sit out an election, because I'm not sure I can support Huckle-berry if he becomes the Republican nominee.

For the candidates it's on to other states and me too.



Chris & I will be attending our precinct caucus this evening and doing our bit for Democracy.

The Iowa Dummycrat Caucus is UN-Democratic and the scientific community is united in that fact.

The party that preaches "Count every vote" and "Every vote counts" has an arbitrary 15% support level for a candidate to be considered viable.

If your candidate doesn't meet that threshold, pick another candidate or pick up your stuff and go home.

The attendees brag about the horse trading that goes on to get people to move to their second choice.

The Washington Post said...

It can seem less like presidential selection and more like "The Price Is Right."

They then describe the bribery involved in...

At the caucuses four years ago, John Edwards supporter Terrence Neuzil told a neighbor who was undecided: "If you vote for Senator Edwards, you can borrow anything out of my garage."

"And I will tell you this," Neuzil says. "He moved and took my grass spreader with him."

Serves you right, In a LEGAL election it's against the law for that type of behavior.

The Ragister described why one woman won't attend...

"They basically try to bully you into changing your vote."

Iowa Dummycrats have never selected a candidate, in a contested caucus, who's gone on to win the White House.

Many believe that honor(?) went to Jimmy Carter in 1976, with 28%, but the big winner that night was ANYBODY BUT with 70 plus percent!

He's no Nostradamus

Joe Biden is more like NUTS-tradamus...

"On September the 10th, the day before the attack on the World Trade towers, I gave a speech at the National Press Club."

"In that speech I predicted there would be a massive attack on the United States of America from terrorists and it would come in the belly of a plane."

Here's the whole quote of that fateful(?) speech...
"while the real threats come into this country in the hold of a ship, or
the belly of a plane,or are smuggled into a city in the middle of the night
in a vial in a backpack."
The speech had to do with Biden attacking President Bush's Missile Defense system.

In no way shape of form was Biden prophesizing planes being flown into buildings and the scientific community is united in that fact.

It MUST be love

Bubba New Year's Day...

"This morning, as I was walking out to come here, Hillary looked at me and said, 'Finally, after all these years I know you do love me.' And I said, 'You do?' She said, "Absolutely, you're missing six football games today."

Woooooooo, Pig Sooie!

His beloved, and Huckle-berry's too, Arkansas Razorbacks lost in the Cotton Bowl to Missouri 38-7.

Speaking of LOVE.

Here's and intersting title in the Washington Times/Inside the Beltway about a book to be published this year...

"The POTUS Chronicles: Bubba Between the Bushes."

And the scientific community is united in that fact.


Caught this headline at Drudge...

Accordion player entertains at Clinton rallies...

That's an oxymoron and the scientific community is united in that fact.

Chelsea looks entertained!

"Now for my accordion solo, Myron, will you join me?"

"A one and a two..."

Wunnerful, Wunnerful!
