Bobby and the Volcano

Stupid socialist spending on volcano monitoring, saving lives and preventing planes from crashing and shit.

The free market will keep those planes in the air, goddammit!

Don't sneer at science -- volcano monitoring saves lives:

"Thanks to 'something called volcano monitoring,' to use the denigrating language of Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal, passenger jets did not fly into ash clouds when Alaska's Mount Redoubt erupted earlier this week.

Volcanic ash creates conditions akin to flying into a sand blaster. A KLM flight lost power in all four engines after it flew into the cloud created by a 1989 eruption of Redoubt.

The plane dropped by more than two vertical miles before its crew could restart the engines and land in Anchorage. No wonder Alaska Airlines canceled 19 in-state flights on Monday week after Redoubt sent an ash plume 60,000 feet into the sky.

The eruptions of Redoubt carry a lesson that Jindal did not learn back when he was a Rhodes Scholar: Don't sneer at science.

The lesson applies equally to Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, a potential Jindal rival for the 2012 Republican presidential nomination. 'Sarah Barracuda' spent last fall lampooning federal money spent on fruit fly research, ignoring that it is essential to the study of human genetics."
Check out some cool pics of Redoubt erupting in Alaska.

If you look closely at the rim you can see Palin sacrificing an extra bastard child. This one was named 'Tonka'. Don't worry, she's got plenty more where Tonka came from and several willing familial vags on stand-by to squirt more out.

Besides, her witch hunting African pastor told her to toss old Tonka in. What's a V-PILF to do?

Republican discourse: "I know you are but what am I", "Pussy says what", and.....

Senators Get Nasty: "You're Good" ... "Your Wife Said The Same Thing":

"Marking up budget legislation can be a brutal affair, often beginning early and lasting long into the night.

But buried within the hours of debate in the Senate on Thursday is an exchange you'd be more likely to hear in a locker room than a congressional hearing.

Budget Committee Chairman Kent Conrad (D-N.D.) was on the receiving end of this one, after telling Sen. Charles Grassley (R-Iowa), 'Oh, you are good.'

'Well, your wife said the same thing,' Grassley responded."

No could ever have predicted... except, you know, a lot of people did.

Detainee's Harsh Treatment Foiled No Plots -

"When CIA officials subjected their first high-value captive, Abu Zubaida, to waterboarding and other harsh interrogation methods, they were convinced that they had in their custody an al-Qaeda leader who knew details of operations yet to be unleashed, and they were facing increasing pressure from the White House to get those secrets out of him.

The methods succeeded in breaking him, and the stories he told of al-Qaeda terrorism plots sent CIA officers around the globe chasing leads.

In the end, though, not a single significant plot was foiled as a result of Abu Zubaida's tortured confessions, according to former senior government officials who closely followed the interrogations. Nearly all of the leads attained through the harsh measures quickly evaporated, while most of the useful information from Abu Zubaida -- chiefly names of al-Qaeda members and associates -- was obtained before waterboarding was introduced, they said."

Harry Reid is a moron.

Sham.... heh-heh.

Vince Shlomi, ShamWow Pitchman, Arrested For Battering Hooker (VIDEO):

"Shlomi told cops he paid [Sasha] Harris about $1000 in cash after she 'propositioned him for straight sex.' Shlomi said that when he kissed Harris, she suddenly 'bit his tongue and would not let go.' Shlomi then punched Harris several times until she released his tongue. The affidavit...notes that during the 4 AM fight Harris sustained facial fractures and lacerations all over her face.... After freeing his tongue, a bleeding Shlomi ran to the [hotel] lobby, where security summoned cops. Harris refused to cooperate with officers, who recovered $930 from her purse."

Have you heard the one about a bobcat walking into a bar....

Bobcat walks into bar in Arizona, bites two patrons:

"About 11 p.m. came the call from the bar that a bobcat was inside as patrons climbed atop bar stools to get away."

The Best Commercial Ever.
