This is from the back of an old James Bond novel I found.
How could his women be more willing than usual? It would have to be a porno where they toss out any pretense of a plot and get right down to business.
The outrage over AIG bonuses turned into poo-pooing the populist rage and fretting about the anger level. After all, a few people sent threatening e-mails to the company so the French Revolution was clearly at hand. Someone throws a brick through your front window with a shotgun shell taped to it, OK. But don’t complain to Barney Frank if someone dashes off a threatening e-mail.
This cartoon was directly inspired by Jack DeSantis, the whiny bitch who got to publish his resignation letter to AIG in the NY Times last week. Jack got a $742,000 bonus and feels he is being unfairly demonized, lumped in with the bad employees responsible for the company’s implosion. I feel so bad for him. Many Americans would have to work full time for 25 years to make that kind of money.
In this environment, the fact that DeSantis can even choose to resign from his job is itself a luxury. People who haven’t already lost their jobs are stressed out about getting cut and are being overworked by their employers.
And since the NY Times pays quite well, DeSantis was compensated more for writing his own resignation letter than many of us make in a week of work. Oh, the indignities he suffers!
There’s a radio ad running for a local car dealership where the following rough transcription is part of the pitch: “and if things get bad and you can’t afford payments, you can just bring the car back!”
I never thought repossession could sound like such an exciting feature.
We’ve all heard about Mexican drug cartels smuggling American machine guns across the border. But did you know there is a big demand for antique pistolas?

ThinkProgress on the Tea Party Protests:
The tea party protests nationwide are being coordinated by the conservative public relations firm Freedom Works, which is run by former Majority Leader Dick Armey (R-TX). The tea parties are also being supported by Newt Gingrich, through his organization American Solutions For Winning the Future.
These “tea parties” are ironic on a few levels. They are mostly made up of people who constantly defended Bush as he asserted powers previously known only to kings and dictators. And they are funded and promoted by that same political party.
The only way this would be comparable to the original Boston Tea Party would be if Sam Adams was being funded by The Crown.
Ah, Yes. The famous true story of the boy who had paranormal turds fly out of his mouth, dispelling everything we know about reality and the laws of physics. I remember reading that in the newspaper.
This ad for the truer-than-life horror flick was on YouTube.
Click to watch two dead boys? I’M THERE!
After 8 years of a President that sounds like a drunken child, having an even-tempered Commander-In-Chief seems like a blessing. It’s also quite boring as Obama doesn’t do anger very well. Last week he attempted to express outrage over the AIG bonuses. He came off as moderately perturbed.
These bonuses are a mere peanut in the bailout turd. All said, they represent very little of the money we spent and/or wasted. But they are representative of the Wall Street excess and greed everyday people resent. We need a president that channels the righteous mob anger of the people–with fire breath and go-go gadget arms!
