Black Eagle, yesterday:

I know Washington’s all in a tizzy, and everybody’s pointing fingers at each other and saying, ‘It’s their fault, the Democrats’ fault, the Republicans’ fault.’ Listen, I’ll take responsibility. I’m the president.

We didn’t draft these contracts…. [but] it is appropriate when you’re in charge to make sure that stuff doesn’t happen like this.

The GOP is all excited hoping to tarnish some of Barry’s luster, but honestly, with lame-assed attacks like this it’ll be a long time before they succeed.

Saying you’re responsible? What the fuck kind of lawyer are you, Barry?!?!?

@Serolf Divad:
I think the insults I hurled when I was 8 (“Nyah Nyah, So and SO has an assface!”) are tougher.

@Serolf Divad: Hey, you just got a link on The Daily Dish. Well done.

@mellbell:

Oh thanks, I hadn’t seen that!

I e-mailed the link to Andrew early this morning. I’m getting better at whoring my blog out. This is the second time he’s linked to me in the last few weeks.

@Serolf Divad: Shit. Now it’s gonna look opportunistic when I invite you.

Unicorn’s taking this Liberal Messiah thing seriously.

He’ll take two of those contracts and feed a thousand rapacious traders traitors.

Did you see that Coach Chokesondick (how do you spell coach K’s name?) from fucking evil Duke originated this, he made a snide fucking remark, when asked what he thought of Obama’s bracket, that Obama should be spending time on the economy and not college basketball.

Fuck him and fuck fucking Duke, the motherfucking fuckers.

@nojo: Very very nice Simpsons Twatter.

@Original Andrew: Along with taking responsibility comes acting like a leader. IMHO he needs to stop letting the Treasury boys run this show and make the calls himself. Like firing the AIG Board and top management.

Oh My God. This here is just beautiful; girl tries to turn in her ex-boyfriend to the cops for child porn, gives the cops her computer and says “look, you’ll find it.” Instead, they find videos of her having sex with a dog, oops, how embarrasing, and they arrest her for bestiality!

MARCH 18–Meet Michelle Owen. Concerned that an ex-boyfriend had used her laptop to search for child pornography, the Indiana woman asked police to search the computer for illegal images, but had her plan backfire when cops discovered two videos of her engaged in illicit acts with a dog. Owen, 24, was charged last week with two felony bestiality counts in connection with the video files, which a detective found in the laptop’s “recycle bin.” At the time Owen asked cops to search the computer, she was locked up in the Johnson County Jail on a public intoxication charge (which violated the terms of her release in a prior drunk driving case). According to a police affidavit, a copy of which you’ll find here, a cop told Owen that he had found videos of her on the laptop and asked if she “knew what those files might be.” Owen, pictured in the below mug shot, replied, “The one with the dog.” Cops believe that the dog in question, Toby, is a beagle. After asking if she was “going to be charged with this,” Owen said that the videos “were just something she did when she was drunk and barely remembers it,” adding that she tried to “delete them the next day when she was sober.” (4 pages

@ManchuCandidate: @Dodgerblue: Same ol’ shit. Photo-op public declarations of “responsibility” but absolutely zero accountability. No one gets fired. Nothing changes. How that clause got in the stimulus bill is never really determined. But we do get a lot of talk about the “buck stops here”. A declaration of “responsibility” with the cynical intent of shielding the truly culpable in the admnistration behind the protective glow of the Black Eagle’s popularity.

It’s Bush the Decider Redux.

On another topic. Fuck Maryland.

@String Bikini Theory:

If you mean the “bonuses for AIG fuckwits is A-OK” thingy, apparently it was Chris Dodd (D-Hedge Fund) in the Senate with the cluelessness.

And oh goody goody, the Housey House just passed a 90% tax on AIG bonuses… that we can then turn around and give back to them in more sexxy sexxy bailout $$$$$.

It’s like a perpetual motion machine that kicks taxpayers in the nuts.

@Prommie:

That is just about the sickest thing ever. Bravo!

@Prommie:
He’s a coach at a major pro sports finishing school college. Speaking of people who should be in a 90% tax bracket…

@Original Andrew: I heard the number 25% of the US GDP as the sum total of funny money from bailouts and treasury actions pumped into the system so far. Unbelievable. Enjoy the tournament – this will be the last one unless Beijing decides to underwrite the whole thing next year.

Dodd is the fall guy. I head him say he put it in at the explicit request of the administration (Bush? Obama? Paulson? Geithner? Bernanke?) . So why would he do that? Keep pulling on this string and there is no telling where the sleeves will start falling off sweaters. No… Much better for the “Great and Powerful Ob” to just say “put it on me” and “pay no attention to the man behind the curtain.”

@Prommie: It’s great. She rubbed Vegemite on her muffin and gave the dog breakfast. Palin has a running mate.

@FlyingChainSaw: I could just imagine the after-dinner conversation in that trailer.
