"Meathead" for California governor? Liberal entertainers fail to win over voters

At a townhall style meeting voicing opposition to California Prop. 75, actor/director Rob Reiner was open to the idea of a future candidacy.

Reiner’s always been poltically active, but most liberal entertainers almost always merely entertain the idea of running for office for fear of embarrassment at the polls, which is almost inevitable. They opt instead to create fictional scenarios where Martin Sheen, Michael Douglas, and Gina Davis actually end up in the Oval Office. Fictional is where it’s likely to stay.

In the previous presidential election, Reiner visited Iowa along with fake president Martin Sheen. “Meathead” as he is known to many, was campaigning for Howard Dean. So was Reiner.

The Hollywood left usually fails at politics, and the reason is simple: They’re nuts. Take Nora Ephron for example. She’s now “out of love” with Bill Clinton because ol’ Bubba’s too conservative for her. And Nora’s moderate by Hollywood standards.

Reiner’s latest cause is opposition to Prop. 75, a ballot initiative being pushed by Schwarzenegger, which would require public employee unions to get permission to use members’ dues for political purposes. Reiner’s reasoning:

“The things I care about — education, health care, energy, environment — I need, we all need, to have everybody’s voice heard. If a democracy is to work properly, we must not, we dare not, have any voice suppressed.”

So, Rob’s position is that if a union member doesn’t want his or her money to go toward a political entity he or she opposes, completely ignoring their wish and donating their money to that entity anyway is freeing that union member from suppression?

Interesting… that’s the same logic that would justify keeping an innocent person locked in solitary confinement because it’s “freeing them from the risk of getting in a car accident.”

Though Reiner is against Prop. 75, he was a vocal proponent of Prop. 10, which raised the price of a pack of cigarettes to about what it costs to see one of his movies (including popcorn, Coke, and Junior Mints).

Reiner Fun Fact: When Reiner directed Alec Baldwin in “Ghosts of Mississippi” in 1996, the two couldn’t be on the set at the same time due to a little known scientific principle called the “Chomsky-Totenberg effect”, which states that two liberals in the same room cease brainwave function of anybody in proximity.

Reiner had the easiest role in “All in the Family” because he was the only character to play himself

Teen abortion down, pregnancy down, liberal blood pressure up

U.S. teen pregnancy, birth rates, and abortions have sunk to all-time lows. This according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control in Atlanta.

You know you’re dealing with a dehumanizing public bureaucracy when the monitoring of the spread of babies falls under the umbrella of the “disease control” department.

This news has to really tick off the likes of Barbara Boxer, the foreperson at the abortion mill who, based on her actions, words, and Senate voting record, is paid a straight “per abortion” commission.

This from the story:

This rosy picture has two blemishes. First, the U.S. teen birth rate remains the highest in the industrialized world – twice Canada’s, for example, and five times France’s.

Well, it’s twice as cold in Canada, doubling the difficulty of removing your clothing long enough for anything. Ever try to get some action in the backseat while wearing a snowsuit? As for France, men are five times less likely to want to have sex with a woman with armpit hair. So, despite this, it’s still good news for the United States.

About half the drop is attributed to teens saying “no” to intercourse. Remember when Nancy Reagan was laughed at by many at for her “just say ‘no'” campaign

“Reagan’s wrong” said liberals. “Kids are too stupid to have self control.”

So, once again, a Reagan was right, liberals were wrong, and to add insult to injury, the abortion rate is declining rapidly while their precious Roe v. Wade law is still intact.

My guess is that all this is anything but good news to the pro abortion left. After all, what good is a “right” if it isn’t exercised early and often?

A reader's report card offers high Marx

This on the comment board from Peter:

you are an arsehole, you quite obviously are pandering to the most uneducated of readerships. you refer to marx, as mere symbol, ignoring the content of the man’s thought. your rhetoric is of the worst kind, cheap and dangerous. you serve as an illustration of all that can go wrong in society.

All I can say is this– a defender of Karl Marx calling you uneducated and dangerous is like Helen Thomas calling you ugly and annoying.

Thanks, Peter. Now get to Ward Churchill’s class before the (re)tardy bell rings.

Clinton, Obama introduce bill to expedite lucrative medical malpractice lawsuits

Senators Barack Obama (D-IL) and Hillary Clinton (D-AR,IL,NY) are introducing legislation to “encourage hospitals to admit medical errors.

If this passes, let the hospitals’ first order of business be to come out and point at Hillary Clinton.

Okay, here’s how it would work:

The legislation would establish a voluntary program for doctors and hospitals under which they would promptly notify patients and their families of medical errors. Victims of medical errors would have the option of entering into out-of-court negotiations, where they could receive an apology from the medical providers involved as well as financial compensation. If no agreement was reached within six months, the patient could file suit, but the apology and any offers of compensation would not be admissible in court.

I’m torn on this one. First, how does the lobby for the legal profession view this? On one hand, the perp coming forward right off the bat gets rid of a lot of leg work for a law firm suing a hospital, allowing them to pursue their money in court or private settlement quicker.

On the other hand, if hospitals come forward right off the bat, it ends up in court, and by some weird occurrence, the plaintiff loses, the law firm has been screwed out of many billable hours in interviewing and tracking down the hows, whats, whys and whos.

Obama cited a 1999 federal study that found there were 98,000 deaths per year caused by medical errors. The stated goal of this legislation is to lower that high number. Does any of this accomplish that? If anything, any plan with Hillary’s fingerprints on it will perpetuate the problem.

Hillary continues to be an advocate for nationalized health care, so I really doubt that “helping patients” is ever on her radar screen. I mean, how much malpractice would there be in a world under Hillarycare, where your doctor is making about the same money as your mailman or Roto Rooter guy? That’s assuming they’re not one in the same.

Tom Delay indicted — Democrats expected to comment as soon as they finish masturbating

A Texas grand jury charged Texas Rep. Tom Delay and two associates with conspiracy in a campaign finance scheme. Here’s the actual indictment.

Delay will have to, at least temporarily, resign his position as House Majority Leader. House Republican rules require indicted leaders to temporarily resign their leaderships. The fact that it’s already in the rulebook speaks a bit about how much this happens.

This from the story:

Democrats have kept up a crescendo of criticism of DeLay’s ethics, citing three times last year that the House ethics committee admonished DeLay for his conduct.

Democrats pointing fingers at Delay all the time isn’t surprising in the least… this is known as a “diversionary tactic.” If you’re about to get busted for stealing a TV, point to the nearest schmuck, preferably one that’s controversial and has many enemies, and accuse him of stealing two TV’s. That should buy you a little time to get your new set home and plugged in.

We’ll see where this leads. One thing’s for sure, there will be a few Democrat parties in DC tonight, which is fine. The strippers need the money.

Rangel-ing with demogogery — More "Bush is like (insert name of racist meanie of historical significance here)" idiotic comparisons

New York Representative Charles Rangel, left, who says something inane with such high frequency that he is now only audible via short wave radio, compared Bush to Theophilus “Bull” Connor, the Birmingham police commissioner who, in 1963, turned fire hoses and attack dogs loose on black demonstrators.

Rangel took a break from gargling Drano long enough to croak out more of his bile at a Congressional Black Caucus meeting. “Bush is like (Hitler, Stalin, Pol Pot, Bull Connor, Caligula, asbestos, and scorching hot coffee)” correlations have now become the Donkey Party’s national pastime, replacing Dem senate pages slapping a hand away from their skirts and saying, “I said no, Senator Kennedy!”

Rangel blasted Bush for insensitivity to poor blacks in the wake of hurricane Katrina when the comparison was made. How come Democrats never compare Bush to past racists like Robert Byrd? Oh, wait…

Rangel’s politics have done more to ensure that the poor stay poor than George W. Bush, and most white “racists” combined. Charles Rangel bitching about poverty is like listening to the Menendez brothers whine about being orphaned.

Addendum:

Good friend of this site, Bill, reminds us in the comments section, “And the best part is that Bull Connor was a Democrat.”

So, when Rangel said that “George W. Bush is our Bull Connor”, Charlie’s conveniently overlooking the fact that the Democrats already had Bull Connor? Too good.

The "Bill Clinton for First Lady" movement: Bubba to stain yet another office?

Somebody is already excited about the prospect of a Hillary Clinton presidency, but not for anything specifically concerning Queen Carpetbagger, but rather her husband. Check out BillForFirstLady.com and find out how you, too, can help Bill Clinton become the first male First Lady since Eleanor Roosevelt.

We’ll find out soon enough if this could be a reality. Thanks to a potential challenge from Al Gore, not to mention John Kerry, Hillary will have to move more outwardly to the left and torque up her “for the common good” talk. She did that last year at a fundraiser in San Francisco, and for the first time in decades, Hillary managed to arouse a man– unfortunately, that man was Karl Marx.

How would America embrace Bill Clinton as First Lady? Better than the pasty former comedian Bill Maher treats the current one. Maher must have been going for a door prize, because he was the millionth sniveling lib to use the words “Bush” and “Hitler” in the same sentence, using a comparison involving Laura Bush and Hitler’s dog (Adolph’s beloved pet was a female German Shepherd named “Blondi“– between the two of them, they had a ball).

Oh yes, while at the Bill for First Lady site, also be sure to check out the “Republicans suck t-shirt hall of fame“. There’s also a preview of some Hillary campaign slogans of the future. Here’s one:

I think I’m going to be ill
