Author: Michelle Malkin

Rank: 48

Blurb: “In July 2012, President Obama infamously proclaimed: ‘If you’ve got a business — you didn’t build that. Somebody else made that happen.’ Malkin wholeheartedly disagrees.”

Review: “Just purchased this for my grandsons summer reading list. I supplement their schooling with homeschooling especially in the summer. While polecats / political bureaucrats are working to tear boys and men down I want to fuel them with positive examples to encourage them and help build their character.”

Customers Also Bought: “EMP: Equipping Modern Patriots: A Story of Survival (Volume 1)”

Footnote: We live in a post-context world, so there’s no point explaining what Obama actually said. Instead we applaud Malkin for coining one of the most awkward marketing terms we’ve heard in awhile.

Gawd’s fat fingers strike again. Enraged by Ireland’s vote to legalize marriage equality, He’s wiped out Texas, the holiest state, with apocalyptic floods.

I’m curious. Is there some ad I can respond to and start making big money writing really puerile Amazon reviews on these books pouring out of the conservative publicity machine? Somebody has got to be paying the schmucks who keep writing five star reviews for this propaganda. The hateful comments on the critical reviews are even worse. Where do I sign up to begin making big bucks today?

I continue to be astounded by the ultra-rare, new wave pop tracks available on the Youtubes. I recently found a few of my long lost faves:

The first was a massive hit in Australia circa 1983, and the video features a very young Nicole Kidman(!). Apparently, “having a bop” is Aussie slang for masturbation–which totally sounds like something they’d say–and casts this song in a whole new light. (Doesn’t it blow your mind that millions of people are Down Under right now yakkin’ away at each other with those awesome accents?)

Pat Wilson – BOP GIRL

The next song is very Clashy.

Rod Taylor aka Rod Falconer – Rock City

@¡Andrew!: Far out. Meanwhile, I just discovered this (the accompanying slideshow, complete with a still from Zardoz, really makes it). George Martin can be such a headcase sometimes.

Speaking of the recent vote in Ireland, have the Stinquers seen the tweet JK Rowling sent to the Neanderthals at the Westboro Baptist Church? Like Harry Potter or not, the woman does have a talent with words. It would be so nice to see more people use their talents to demolish the overblown egos in these hate groups.

I was reading recently that Hilary’s Benghazi emails are going to be released in chunks over the next few months. Does anyone remember if the Iran Contra files ever were released. One of the first things to happen under Bush the Lesser was to classify all of the documents making them off limits to freedom of information requests. There was talk early in Barry’s first year of declassifying the documents. I do not remember if it ever happened.Ironically it was Chaney who pushed for the classification and Biden who discussed declassification.

@DElurker: Given the energy with which the Unicorn Administration has gone after suspected leakers of classified info, I doubt those docs were ever declassified…

Breaking hard: News reports claim that former Speaker Dennis Hastert was paying blackmail $$ to cover up having had sex with another man when Hastert was a wrestling coach.

@Dodgerblue: What would be the May or June equivalent of “Cocktober”?

@Dodgerblue: Too bad this couldn’t have blown up a decade ago. Still, that’s a metric fuck-ton of blackmail munnie, which leads one to believe there was a helluva lot more going on.

Sadly, Orange Boner’s upcoming scandal is gonna reveal that he’s been sticking it in his whiskey bottles. You heard it here first.

Y’all see Bruce Jenner’s Vanity Fair cover?

@Dodgerblue: Her resemblance to Jessica Lange is impressive, however her new name makes my eye twitch.

@Dodgerblue: And right on cue, Mike Huckabee says something intentionally offensive to transgender people.


I’ve managed to make it four decades on this Earth without learning what a “Sepp Blatter” is, and I see no reason to find out now.

@¡Andrew!: I was in London when that story broke, and if I never hear another word about FIFA again, it will be too soon.

@Mistress Cynica: @¡Andrew!: What were the Brit headlines like? I heard an interview with a US-based Limey who said “Imagine if you combined how you felt the day that Nixon resigned with the day that Piers Morgan was sacked by CNN”. Blatter was (and remains) a loathsome creature of International Sport, and, well, if U!S!A! can’t win at the game at least We get props for bringing him down.

@Beggars Biscuit & @Mistress Cynica: I’m confident that the British press handled the FIFA story with the maturity and dignity for which they are well known. Now let’s all look at the boobs on Page 3.

P.S. “Sepp Blatter!” is a Norwegian curse meant to be yelled at maximum volume, right?

@Beggars Biscuit: @¡Andrew!: The best was the BBC’s orgasmic reaction to being the only major news organization still in town for the news conference when Blatter unexpectedly resigned. Everyone else had packed up and left, but their reporter was no doubt hung over and missed the flight. Headlines were along the lines of “Blatter shown the door,” with a photo of him exiting the stage while a guard holds open a door.
