As reported by The NY Times (via NRO, h/t Weasel Zippers), Jared Loughner — among his many mental illnesses — was caught up in Bush Derangement Syndrome (emphasis added):

He became intrigued by antigovernment conspiracy theories, including that the Sept. 11 attacks were perpetrated by the government and that the country’s central...

I was thinking of holding this one back for a special occasion, but I just couldn’t wait.  If the world were to end tomorrow, I would not want you to perish without having seen this.

Sent to me by a reader, this photo was taken in the spring of 2009 at Tysons Corner Center, McLean, VA.  Enlarge and enjoy:

You know the best thing about this?  This guy has gone from having the coolest car in town in the afterglow of Obama’s inauguration, to having the most embarrassing set of wheels in the nation.

Nonetheless, I think I know someone who may be interested in buying it.

The National Bureau of Economic Research has declared that the recession ended, statistically speaking, in June 2009.  As reported by the L.A. Times:

Calling All Bumper Sticker Detectives

Spotted in Ithaca this morning.  Quite bold to put such a “Miss me yet?” sticker on your car in these parts of the country, and then to park it on a main road.

Can anyone figure out over what bumper sticker the “Miss me yet?” bumper sticker was pasted? 

The first to identify the original gets an all expense paid trip to Disney World paid for by Charlie Crist’s campaign fund:

Update:  The mystery solved, somewhat.  I received an e-mail from the anonymous car owner (who reads this blog), in part as follows:

I was wondering when you’d get around to my collection.

The covered up sticker is one for US Senate from another state. It was given to me as a joke by a son who might be a Democrat, since the candidate is…. I won’t go into more details about the sticker.

I was disappointed that the Miss Me Yet? sticker was so small.

To answer one of your commentators, the Inmate of the Month sticker came about because it seemed that I was always behind a green mini-van, never the same one, that had a sticker bragging that the owner was a proud parent (always singular in Ithaca) of an honor student at such and such school. Nothing wrong with having smart kids, but I wanted to make my own statement and when I saw what I thought was a clever hand made sign on a pickup near Raleigh/Durham NC I copied it, using Chattahoochie (I misspelled it, as Southern isn’t my native tongue) as the jail….

Happy blogging.

DNC Pulls Bush Ad / Update: Edits and Re-Posts Video

The Democratic National Committee released an advertisement, posted on the DNC’s “Rapid Response” YouTube Channel, mocking George W. Bush.  The ad was laughable, and much derided.

Here is how it appeared in my post earlier today, Extremely Effective DNC Ad:

General Eric K. Shinseki was a hero to Democrats and the mainstream media because he publicly criticized the Bush administration on Iraq:

In a contentious exchange over the costs of war with Iraq, the Pentagon’s second-ranking official today disparaged a top Army general’s assessment of the number of troops needed to secure...

Of course, that depends upon what the meaning of “crazy” is.

News has leaked out through an article in Esquire Magazine that Eric Massa, the disgraced Democratic rock star (was he the tickler, or the tickle-ee?), claims that Dick Cheney conspired with Gen. David Petraeus to stage a coup.

Barack Obama loves to try to blame George Bush for our deficits and out of control spending, as if Democratic control of Congress for the last several years, and Obama’s control of the budget this year, had nothing to do with it. So how will Obama blame Bush for this:

Do not be alarmed. This is no cause for concern. It’s not as if the government put your medical records online. And Bush probably is to blame, anyway:

Or so it seems. Democratic Representative Mike Capuano is running in the Democratic special primary for Ted Kennedy’s Senate seat. While running against numerous other high-profile Democrats, such as Attorney General Martha Coakley, Capuano has put Dick Cheney at the center of his campaign strategy.
