The Surreal World: Capitol Hill
New York Times, by Maureen Dowd

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 1/6/2013 11:10:28 AM

IT was hard not to feel sorry for John Boehner, wounded, weepy, mercilessly flogged by Chris Christie. The miserable-looking Boehner was even scaring small children. After squeaking out re-election as House speaker when crazed conservatives rebelled on Thursday, Boehner summoned gruff bonhomie as he presided at a ceremonial swearing-in for House members. But some of the kids posing for pictures seemed a little alarmed at Boehner’s awkward pats, brusque small talk and barked orders when someone posed the wrong way.

Nothing more pathetic than an aging propaganda hack spinster like Maureen Dowdy. How unhappy she must be yearning deep down inside for the happy honest life she could have had if she had not given up all her morals and principles in exchange for pushing the commiecrat party line. What a loser.

No wonder no real man would ever want to marry this screeching, caterwauling harpy. Not worth reading.

MoDo´s usual garbage. Interesting for one thing, however - on page two she compares The Won´s lack of skill as a negotiator/politician very unfavorably with Biden´s. I think the powers that be have decided that Hillary is out and Joe is in for 2016. I´m sure its because The Old Plagiarist is far more easily controlled. Watch for the narrative to continue moving along in this direction.

BTW, how old is that picture of her, do you think?

CHARLESTON, W.Va. -- Faced with limited information and no regulatory guidelines on a chemical that´s put drinking water off limits for 300,000 West Virginians, government scientists have come up with a level of Crude MCHM they believe is safe. Federal and state officials have put out a number -- 1 part per million -- and are noting hopefully that chemical concentrations in the region´s Elk River water supply are dropping ever closer to that figure. At the same time, officials in the Tomblin administration and with West Virginia American Water are refusing to make public the results of their testing.

1. Cape Town, South Africa -A place to meditate on freedom, and the creative life that followed. When Nelson Mandela was incarcerated at Robben Island prison, he found inspiration in Cape Town. “We often looked across Table Bay at the magnificent silhouette of Table Mountain,” he said in a speech. “To us on Robben Island, Table Mountain was a beacon of hope. It represented the mainland to which we knew we would one day return.” Cape Town’s importance to Mandela, who made his first address there as a free man, will doubtless draw many visitors in the wake of his

Rep. Darrell Issa is headed to New Hampshire next month to speak at a venue that has been a must-do appearance for presidential aspirants. The Vista Republican and chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee will address a joint session of the Concord Republican City and Merrimack County committees annual Lincoln Day Dinner on Monday, Feb. 17. The appearance was announced by former Issa staffer Kurt Bardella, who’s firm Endeavor Strategic Communications represents Issa’s political operation. He said the appearance does not mean Issa is testing the water for a presidential bid. “There is a broader conversation that

First Lady Michelle Obama hits a milestone birthday—age 50—on Jan. 17. And five years after she moved into the White House, the nation pays rapt attention to her every move, from her Let’s Move! program to curb childhood obesity to her hair and her outfits. Of turning 50, the first lady says she’s “never felt more confident.” When asked about her thoughts on the landmark in her Parade, August 18, 2013 cover interview, she replied: “What you learn is that each decade brings a new set of challenges but also a new set of possibilities.

Five myths about Michelle Obama

Michelle Obama entered the White House as a chimera. To some, she was emblematic of fully realized African American womanhood and an incomparable fashion icon. To others, she was the voice of racial grievance, the nanny state and Seventh Avenue vanity. She has proved herself to be neither vengeful nor the patron saint of activist feminism. Yet misperceptions linger. So as she celebrates her 50th birthday, here are a few facts in the face of persistent fictions. 1. Michelle Obama is the most fashion-friendly first lady. Obama has been a pronounced and polished advocate for American style, seamlessly moving from

Here is a selection of reactions from world leaders and others to the death of former Israel Prime Minister Ariel Sharon, who was both admired and despised for his bold style and hard-driving tactics. "Arik was not a warmonger. When it was necessary to fight, he stood at the forefront of the divisions in the most sensitive and painful places, but he was a smart and realistic person and understood well that there is a limit in our ability to conduct wars." — Former Prime Minister Ehud Olmert, Sharon´s former deputy who took office after the 2006 stroke. ~"On behalf of

In January 2013, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel dropped a bombshell report showing ATF Agents who attempted to set up a storefront in the city, ended up damaging the building, owing the landlord money and lost a machine gun on the streets after it was stolen out of a government vehicle. A store calling itself Fearless Distributing opened early last year on an out-of-the-way street in Milwaukee´s Riverwest neighborhood, offering designer clothes, athletic shoes, jewelry and drug paraphernalia. Those working behind the counter, however, weren´t interested in selling anything. They were undercover agents from the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms

AUSTIN — Sen. Ted Cruz accused President Obama of exercising “imperial” power and “lawlessness” to the extent that it has become an “extraordinary threat” to liberty. (Snip) He cited several examples of what he described as Obama defying the rule of law in favor of cherry picking which laws to follow. That includes the administration’s stance on allowing several states to move forward with plans to legalize marijuana, creating last-minute exemptions to Obama’s signature health plan and granting relief from deportation to some young undocumented immigrants via executive order.

"Republican lawmakers Thursday blamed the Obama administration for the stunning resurgence of Iraq’s al-Qaeda franchise and called on the White House to take assertive steps to help Baghdad beat back militant uprisings in the country’s west." That´s how Ernesto Londono opened his January 10 story "Republicans blame Obama administration for al-Qaeda resurgence in Iraq," a front-page-worthy story which Washington Post editors buried on page A10. By contrast, the Post ran not one but two Chris Christie bridge-scandal stories on the Friday edition´s front page. The other stories rounding out the front page centered on efforts to hash out a long-term

Wisconsin Political Speech Victor

Chalk up a big victory for the First Amendment. On Friday a Wisconsin judge struck a major blow for free political speech when he quashed subpoenas to conservative groups and ordered the return of property to the targets of a so-called John Doe campaign-finance probe. John Doe probes operate much like grand juries, allowing prosecutors to issue subpoenas and conduct searches while gag orders require the targets to keep quiet. We wrote about the kitchen-sink subpoenas and morning raids by special prosecutor Francis Schmitz that targeted dozens of conservative groups that participated in the battle to recall Republican Governor Scott

He was, he said, heartbroken. Embarrassed. Sad. Disappointed. Humiliated.By the end of an extraordinary and exhaustive 107-minute news conference, Chris Christie had transformed himself from a belligerent chief executive, famed for ridiculing his detractors, into a deeply wronged father figure, shaking his head, whispering his words and verging on tears. The bravado had vanished. The certitude was gone. In its place was an entirely new vocabulary of self-doubt and a once unthinkable spectacle: Governor Christie acknowledging a “crisis in confidence,” sleepless nights, second-guessing and nonstop soul-searching. Political apologies generally follow a robotic sequence. The public figure caught doing wrong offers a terse, often

The pizza arrived, steaming and delectable, a smoked-mozzarella-and-sausage pie presented to Mayor Bill de Blasio like a gilded offering to a visiting caliph. The mayor, on a pilgrimage on Friday to Goodfellas, a venerable Staten Island pizzeria, smiled, nodded at his slice and then proceeded to do the unthinkable: eat it with a knife and fork. Cue the foodie firestorm. “Disaster,” declared a writer at New York magazine, citing the longstanding city protocol of devouring pizza, no matter how greasy, with the hands, and the hands only. One website called it Mr. de Blasio’s first mistake as mayor.

You can feel the charm when you watch her operate in person, that Sarah Palin.

Me, I was taken aback. She’s practically my new bestie, now. Squeezed my hand, called me “honey,” even stopped to squeeze my shoulder on her way out and thank me. We had a wee chat and a laugh.

Every night’s going to be Halloween night for Hillary. The skeletons in her closet are signing up now for the conga line. They’re impatient to put on their dancing shoes for the 2016 presidential campaign. Like it or not, it’s just around the corner.

Sparkles Lindsay, 22, followed Kimberly Kilgore, 21, into her gated apartment complex last year and shot her to death while her best friend sat in the passenger seat and watched in horror, police say. Ms Lindsay faces a charge of malice murder, two counts of felony murder, aggravated assault, possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, and possession of a firearm during commission of a felony, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
