Snap out of your funk, damn it

Not a great day.
Someone I know, an indefatigable blogger, decided to go to bed early.
Don’t focus on the bad. Think about the great candidates we have like Mia B. Love, who just rolled out this video:
Remember Operation Counterweight.
Do I have to come over and slap you?
Donations tax deductible
to the full extent allowed by law.
It is time to get back to fighting the good fight. There is a lot of stuff to talk about that we have been ignoring.
We need to win the Senate back! Dig Deep!
What??? Biden is calling Republicans “squealing pigs”! You’re threatening to “come over and slap [me]”!
How in the world am I going to get any sleep tonight. What’s the movie line – “What? Has the whole world gone mad?” Time to get out the good stuff – Black Label.
I’m concerned about Joe Biden.
First he starts saying “y’all”, and now he’s calling Republicans “squealing pigs”?
What’s next? During the GOP convention, is he going to say that Paul Ryan has a “purty mouth”?
And if he does, will the media report it?
I am concerned about Joe Biden too, but for a different reason.
A trusted friend in the Patriot Movement in another state forwarded this posting from ULSTERMAN; who I accept as a usually reliable source based on past predictions of White House behaviour that have proved accurate. I take his warnings seriously. Not as gospel, but very seriously. “White House Insider” is the most accurate of his sources.
This explains why out of nowhere, suddenly Joe Biden is going to the Republican National Convention with no set reason. When that came out, I tried to find a reason. There was none, and the SS had been apparently caught off guard.
For those not familiar with the concept of “False Flag”, see this. Yes, it is Wikipedia, but in the main I vouch for the content of this entry.
Akins may be a planned distraction. He was partially funded, it seems, by McCaskill. It has crossed my mind that Akins is a double agent and his otherwise inexplicably stupid actions this weekend were actually planned to use up all the political and news attention while the announcement of Biden’s trip to Tampa passed relatively unnoticed.
It is true that McCaskill’s campaign, and Democratic Super PACs, ran ads during the primary saying Akin was “too conservative” for Missouri. The ads said he was in favor of abolishing the departments of Education and Energy and privatizing social security. The ads were targeting ultra conservative people like me. I have seen no evidence that McCaskill directly “funded” Akin’s campaign. Akin raised so little money during the primary that he did not even start running TV ads in western Missouri until 3 weeks prior to the election.
The double agent stuff is nonsense, too. Do you realize Akin is a 6 term Congressman with a 97.5 lifetime ACU voting record? The man has one of the most consistently conservative voting records in the entire legislature. He voted against TARP, both times, even though Hank Paulson swore the world would end if TARP did not pass. Akin voted against Medicare Part D. For perspective, Paul Ryan voted for both TARP and Medicare Part D.
Next he’ll say we’re unclean and should be exterminated.
How sad you think Black Label is “the good stuff.”
What do you consider to be the “good stuff?” In the Obama economy, a $35 of Johnny Black is the good stuff!!
Quality doesn’t change because of what you can afford.
Hey, if Val-U-Rite Vodka does it for you, go for it.
Not Johnny, but Tenn Jack . . .
That is an uplifting ad. We will send her another contribution tonight and feel good about things.
It’s not often I feel the need to quote a Skin Bracer ad from the 70s…
“…an indefatigable blogger…”
You deserve a good night’s rest. Have a good night.
Everclear. It is that sort of night.
Professor, just deduct a tenth of a point off their grade.
Here’s a happy little thought to be goin’ on…
Just think of the good a person like Mia Love could do over a long career.
Do you know what I love about this message and Mia B love. She is not afraid to be Conservative and express all that is Good and Right about being conservative with conservative values and principles. She is Reaganesque in every sense that can be- courageous, truthful, honest, principled, responsible, accountable and responsive to the people, and good- a leader of the people, by the people, for the people.. She is America, which is what liberal elitists in politics and the media despise and hate, and try to destroy all that is good in this world, and why “we the people” love and support Mia B Love, and all who are like her.
What funk? We have 2 outstanding candidates at the top of the ticket. The more I see of Romney, the more I think he will be a great president. Ryan is simply the best young politician in America. He is just incredibly likable. These guys are going to carry the party across the finish line and bring the Senate and the House with them.
As far as Akin is concerned, the Rs can always run a 3rd party candidate against him and still win that seat.
Real hope and real change in November!
Please do professor ; )
“Do I have to come over and slap you?”
Works for me. ;-p
Seriously, I’ll be donating to her again next payday, too, and to other conservative candidates. Great ad, by the way.
Yes! I love Mia Love! Time to get out the checkbook!
Damn, I finished my bottle of black already. Guess me and my pal Jameson have a date later tonight.
As I’ve said before, it’s who defines the narrative. The war on women was already staged, and this small battle was lost. We need to get back on message now and win the war. Don’t believe the liberal media bias.
After the dog, Johnnie Walker is my best friend.
Slap? Are you going for a different demographic?
Love Mia. Just sent her another donation.
Mia is great.
I hope Missouri voters pick Akin. For the simple reason that Claire McCaskill is far worse.
OMG. Sarah Palin was on Greta promoting Sarah Steelman for a third party run. McCaskill must be playing the dancing dinosaur “Victory Dance” at that suggestion.
Steelman has had trouble winning a statewide race. The only statewide race she has won was state treasurer. And she won that in a year when a popular young Republican won the governorship. I’m not saying she road his coattails into office, but…
Then in 2008 she ran for governor and got smoked. Now we all know that in 2012 she tied for second but offically came in third with 30% of the vote in the Republican primary for Senate. With Akin’s name on the ballot, there is just no way she will defeat McCaskill as an independent. They will split the vote. Wake up to reality.
The only way to win a statewide race as an independent is to recruit Kit Bond or John Ashcroft. Bond especially is very well liked. But he seemed adamant when he retired that he was finished with public service. He’s now a partner in a law firm and serving as a director on corporate boards. Anybody think he wants to give up that cushy situation as he gets ever older to run in a conentious senate race? I would not bet on it.
Ashcroft is also well liked, though I suspect slightly less so than Bond. However, he’s got instant name recognition and would have real potential to win as an independent. Like Bond, he spent nearly all of his early life in public service and he now is trying to make some dough late in life. I suspect he’s as much of a pipe dream to run as Bond is. Those are the only two who I think would have a serious chance of winning as independents. And they both have structured their lives such that it is unlikely they would do so.
First we had national Republicans and pundits turning Akin into a national pariah worse than Jeffrey Dahmer. Now we’ve got Palin promoting an independent candidate who ran as a Republican on a third line who has lost 2 out of 3 statewide elections. And she wants her to compete against the Republican candiate that Republicans themselves were deterined to destroy.
Shakespeare could turn this into a tragic comedy of errors.
If I remember MO has a sore loser law, Steelman or Brunner cannot run 3rd party, Akins being the boneheaded idiot that he seems to be, if he doesn’t leave, then someone will have to run 3rd party and have complete RNC backing, utterly demolishing Akin’s chance at any ads, etc.
Sarah Palin is crafty. There’s usually a method to her ‘madness,’ if you want to call it that. She always seems to come out ahead, once all the smoke has cleared.
The left is desperate for their own “Operation Chaos.” The right is playing into it by being so miserably fearful. Push-back is the way to go.
People aren’t looking for an excuse to vote for Obama. They’re looking for an excuse to vote for Romney.
“Crafty” by suggesting a legally ineligible candidate run as a write-in?
Very deep thinker you’ve got there! I admit, the subtlety escapes me. How does it make her appear anything but woefully uninformed?
and just like clockwork…
Obama women’s advocate Sandra Fluke to speak at the Democratic National Convention wapo.st/QX6Iir
and if Akin is still in, no doubt, everything he’s said will be used front and center.
and really dims, do you really think you speak for all women, heck even all pro-choice women?!?
[…] PROFESSOR JACOBSON: Snap Out Of Your Funk, Damn It! […]
A professor threatening to slap his student? Oh, if only I could got back to my law school days….wherein I’d do a lot less studying and a lot more drinking and carousing, especially if I had a professor’s physical threats to hold over the administration’s head.
A few slaps woulda done you a worlda good.
Have you been talking to my parents?
I got my funk out of the way Sunday night. I’m much better now. Even if the loathsome McCasket wins, I still think a Republican majority is quite possible given the other races.
The world doesn’t turn on Rep. Akin, and it is still possible to replace him if he joins the petition. When this happened so close to the voluntary deadline, it was almost certain he wouldn’t drop out.
First of all, he really believes he only misspoke, the only error was “legitimate.” He’s wrong on the science and wrong to be talking about it at all. The answer to that question is, “Claire McCaskill forced ObamaCare on us and taxpayer funding of abortions is now required. She makes NO exceptions – kill ’em all Claire.”
Secondly, the short time means it hasn’t sunk into his advisers, and the inner circle isn’t going to tell him to drop out – they’re looking at making some real money on the campaign now, and dreaming of a staff job in DC. Will they tell him to drop out? And Akin gave up his House seat to run, so if he drops, he’s unemployed.
F Akin, With Ryan getting the Tie Breaker job the R party only needs to reach The Magic 50 to get it all done.
I love it when you talk dirty!
This whole Akin kerfuffle is something we cannot do anything about. At least when he misspoke/gaffed/whatever Republicans rightly were outraged and demanded his withdrawal.
When our president suggests that that same child, if he were to somehow survive the abortion, be allowed to die in a trash can, the left is okeedokee with that.
The double standard and moral glaucoma of the left is astounding.
You Stay Slappable America
Okay! After wallowing in my misery yesterday, I’m better today. Yes, Mia is fabulous, and we have other wonderful candidates in whom we can be proud. I’m done with Akin and looking at November 6th and what I can do in my part of the country to help constitutional conservatives and the #RomneyRyan2012 ticket. Let’s roll!
Prof J, just a point or two here. There are 100 sitting US Senators. We (Conservatives or even Repubs) don’t own the Senate. We (Conservatives) need to own the US Senate and the House and the Presidency so we can first repeal Obamacare and next begin to move the Overton Window to the right in America.
This is not a run for a US House seat in a time when we pretty much own the House.
So Akin is a freakin’ disaster.
