Kazeminy...that sounds like a tairist to me...Will he join Stevens, Young and Palin?

The Coleman-Franken race is going to a recount. So it's definitely not over. But if Coleman wins a second term in the senate, let's not forget about those charges that surfaced in the last few days of the race. According to claims contained in court filings (statements made under penalty of perjury), Coleman's sugar daddy Nasser Kazeminy funnelled $75,000 for Coleman's personal use by channelling it through cut-out 'work' by Coleman's wife, an actress and sometime inventor who obtained an insurance license only in late 2006. We took a wait and see approach in the waning days of the election, because these were just charges and a lot of stuff gets thrown around in the final days of a campaign. So caution was merited.

But more sources are coming forward now, and as you know, bribes to members of Congress are strictly frowned upon.

found this bit of sanity on Sayet's:

anon II, a true liberal said...
Why do they need to speculate about the performance of a well regulated economy when we have the decades after the New Deal reforms as a historical record...and it displays the greatest years for the greatest number in American history.

Tax rates were much higher and the financial sector was tightly -- but accurately -- regulated.

But when reality clashes with their naive ideology, fantasy wins...and America loses.

Look at that pic again. It's Iago and Othello.

Think? But Iago was passed over for his promotion. Emmanuel hasn't been thrown under any bus yet.

Emmanuel seems more MacBethish, than Iago.

I take that back... more "Mrs. the Scottish play".

"Mrs. The Scottish play"? Who, Lady Macbeth?

That was Hillary.

Fj and John...

Great analogies!

Lady MacBeth had the will to kill the king. Mr. the Scottish play got all guilty and wanted to chicken out, and afterwards went mad.

Actually, can I change my answer? They're BOTH more Lady MacBeth.

The raven himself is hoarse
That croaks the fatal entrance of Duncan
Under my battlements. Come, you spirits
That tend on mortal thoughts, unsex me here,
And fill me from the crown to the toe top-full
Of direst cruelty! make thick my blood;
Stop up the access and passage to remorse,
That no compunctious visitings of nature
Shake my fell purpose, nor keep peace between
The effect and it! Come to my woman's breasts,
And take my milk for gall, you murdering ministers,
Wherever in your sightless substances
You wait on nature's mischief! Come, thick night,
And pall thee in the dunnest smoke of hell,
That my keen knife see not the wound it makes,
Nor heaven peep through the blanket of the dark,
To cry 'Hold, hold!'

Ohhhhh - now Jonh is a Shakespeare referencing liberal elitist.

Hypocarcy?

You mean Obama's a needle-junkie, too?

FJ - I think you are bit like Lady McBeth (only moodier - ROFL). How do you like thems apples?

Obama's a bit like Prince Hal - But now he is like Henry V.

McCain was like the Duke of Burgundy in Act 5 - gracious (finally) in defeat.

I like em fine.

... only there's NO Henry V in Obama, more Gloucester of Richard III.

NO Henry V in OBama - What, you don't think Obama has the potential to be a war criminal?

Blogger FJ said...

No. I don't think that Obama has the potential to command men. Zeros like you, maybe. But not men.

FJ,

You seem a bit insecure about the question of leadership of men. ROFL. Try to imagine Obama as white. It may make you feel more comfortable. ;)

Blogger FJ said...

And you seem a bit MORE than insecure about the concepts of liberty and freedom of thought. Perhaps you should try thinking of me as a black man.

You just made my point. You sound silly, defensive, and ready for defenestration. Bye Bye.

What point was that, that you're a liberal bigot? That point was never in doubt.

fj - It would serve you well to go back to one of your online catfights with one of those other commenters. It was amusing watching that.

Ever since you were defenestrated, you have begun to wreak of your own decrepitude.

Why would I want to leave? Watching a fool with delusions of power fantasize about defenestrating her political opponents is as amusing as it gets!
