You'd think an intern might lighten the load around here at Porch Manqué central. But nooooooo... Here I am, slaving away on this week's Full Metal Jacket Reach Around, while the boss and Myers are out chasing tacos and who knows what else at the National Press Club. How much do you want to be those punks don't even bring me back any chow? Talk about getting punked.
OK, enough of this fuming: I could begin to sound a modern liberal, droning past ad nauseum levels of whining about 'fairness'. To work.
- Obi's sister includes the old guy spanking in a roundup of interweb paddling.
- The Troglopundit wondered aloud about hitting the Delete button.
- 4 Simpsons noted the death panel that didn’t exist. How about the Coordinated Health Activity Resource Organization, National (CHARON)? Really great boat logo. Put an old squid in charge. It will be perfect. In some other country than this one.
- The Blog Prof has a thorough roundup of the Community Organizer in Chief. He seems to have missed the special new 'stimulus' vehicle purchased to help popluarize the idea.
- The Rude News pronounces the engagement a sound defeat. Just remember: 3.5 years left. It's not over until the last zombie has been fragged by a shotgun shell.
- The Rhetorican feels "Life-Span Committees" has a nice, positive (if Orwellian) ring to it... [Except that it admits the government owns you cradle-to-deathbed a little too openly for now.]
- Rickety Click lives up to his "Don't Expect Me to be Nice motto:"
So, no, the bill does not order physicians to make their patients agree to die. It simply offers to pay them to bury their patients in bullshit, including a disguised offer to allow themselves to be neglected to death, because remember: from here on out, your health care will administered with all the compassion of the IRS or the DMV. And eventually, there will be no alternative.
- Dustbury: "One might almost call it a monologue".
- Obi's Sister Thought the post was funny.
- The Daley Gator makes the rather surprising assertion that there are places no man should go. We shan't ask (a) where he came from, and (b) where else he considers acceptable. It's just not our business, and we love everyone anyway. Though that Myers creep is on thin ice. WTF my tacos?
- Sir Bob of Belvedere: "THEY CALL ME DOCTOR LOVE"
- Moe Lane has a cliff notes version.
- Tom at it's a kwazy life thinks that Griffin is a Gollum figure. What's Tom's beef with Tolkien? ;)
- Ruby Slippers Blog linked Stacy's summary.
- Mercury Rising marks the ebbing of the left.
- Chad at the KURU lounge registered disgust at the Griffin blogging.
- Ruby Slippers Blog blended the death panel blowback with the Griffen story, sending me into an editorial tizzy.
- But Bob Belvedere keeps the issues separate in a healthy roundup.
- Jimmie speaks with the voice of authority: "Don’t Stiff the Bloggers, Media Boy". Myers: don't stiff the Porch Manqué on the tacos, ya hear?
- Daryl Vocat linked us.
- The Blog Prof was all over Hitler Moustache story, that Stacy linked at the bottom of the disgruntled lesbian story. Connecting the dots on that one is left as an exercise for the reader.
- Obi's Sister nabbed the Leah post.
- The Classic Liberal hat tipped us also.
- The Lonely Conservative was experience database personality while building this post. Yet your link on the topic of Leah was noted and approved.
- Public Secrets agreed with the blowhard diagnosis
- Jimmie linked the Blowhard post in a Harry Reid Denunciation (HRD) that is my #2 favorite HRD outing. #1 remains, of course, Dennis Miller:
- Poliblogger took a moderate tone. Some seem to miss the point that the healthcare debate, while a major skirmish, is really one engagement in the broader battle to retain liberty in this country. Don't focus on tactics at the expense of strategy, ye patriots.
- AmieriCAN-DO Attitude linked us amidst the most thorough roundup on the topic I've seen yet.
- Jazz Shaw and I sparred briefly. I'm still curious regarding Jazz's opinion of Federalism.
- The Independent Political Report had a play-by-play summary on the future of the Libertarians.
- Kn@ppster chewed on it a bit more, too.
- The WyBlog picks us up. Let me know if that bit of script works for you, mate.
- Kn@ppster is neither conservative, nor lesbian, nor afraid to link us, nor afraid to request hits of the tip jar. We celebrate such shamelessness in the these parts. Myers: the tacos?
- Rightofcourse had some Hayek adulation, which leads to this blog in either case (Selma or Friedrich). Also picked up the breastfeeding baby doll.
- Daley Gator approves of smacking douchers.
- Political Byline enjoyed "SENATOR FLEES SWEATY LESBIAN". Should we laugh at a Senator's expense? Yes. Yes, we should.
- Troglopundit likes a line from Myers, but urges caution. Whereas I urge Myers to take care of senior bloggers. WTF?
- Obi's Sister astroturfs for fun and pleasure.
- Jesse Hathaway is still our best hope for the future of journalism. Not that I'm claiming to be a journalist, mind.
- Trog liked my "sanity and the law" quip.
- The Right Guy had a brief roundup of Kenneth Gladney reporting.
- Adrienne's Catholic Corner gets a thumbs up for linking the last FMJRA post. I like the bumper sticker at the top. I'd heard the "whirrled peas" bit before, but "stop the violins" is new.
- The Blog Prof had a thesis on Town Halls, and included us.
- Cartago Delenda Est liked the Don't Tread on Me pics on the topic of Tea Party rage.
- Belvedere picked up on the Sirhan Sirhan Caucus riff, as well as the GOP media treatment analysis from the Green Room.
As usual, send tips and accolades to the firm of McCain and Myers. They get the food, I'm stuck with the wrappers, here in my taco hell. But if you have some links that escaped the clone bot army, send them to Smitty. Line your blog and my inbox for Rule 5 Sunday tomorrow, as well, ye scalawags.
