Boy oh boy, I am really looking forward to Robert Redford’s crocumentary on Chicago and its “visionary mayor” (now, what would make the film truly interesting would be if they let Bob Belvedere write the script; of course, then Redford wouldn't touch it).

If you don’t know genocide when you see it, it comes as no surprise that you can’t identify an act of terrorism, either (neither of which failing, of course, will bar you from becoming a national security advisor in this administration).

Fishersville Mike spots a problem with the anti-IRS protests scheduled for noon tomorrow.

The ever-alert Swampy catches Janet Napolitano in a lie (yet another one).

Piers Morgan: wrong again.

How dishonest is Lois Lerner? Kevin Williamson counts the ways.

Rep. Mike Kelly rakes IRS flunky, Steve “Brillo Pad” Miller, over the coals.

Heh. President Obama adopts the Sgt. Schultz strategy (H/T: Legal Insurrection).

“Customer” service: “A new USCIS computer system to screen applications known as ‘Transformation’ has proven to be a disaster as the agency has spent upwards of $2 billion for a system that would eventually allow an alien--now referred to as a ‘customer’ under current USCIS policy--to upload their own information via the internet for adjudication purposes,” Palinkas said. “To date, only one form can be accepted into the program that has been in the making for close to 10 years.”

Nixon: I am not a crook.
Obama: I am not Nixon.

I don’t agree with all of the assertions made by John Avlon in this article at the Telegraph web site; for one thing, he is far too dismissive of the probability of Obama’s direct involvement in, and the near-certainty of his at least countenancing, the frauds and abuses committed by people under his authority. However, I am willing to pardon much in return for his coining of the word “scandalabra” to describe the Obama administration’s multiple infamies.

Obama stooge Dan “Beadle” Pfeiffer: the law is a ass!

D.C., with its highly restrictive gun laws, sends an ominous message: You saved someone’s life with an unregistered gun? That’ll be a thousand dollars, please.

Lost and Found Dept: John Boehner, call your office.

Y'know, I willingly hold Chicago up as the standard for how governments should NOT be run. So as to contain the infection.

I just wish I didn't have to.

Robert Redford never stopped being a dumb blonde - even after he went grey.

This was supposed to be the smartest, bestest administration in American history, and yet not one of the top leaders ... NOT ONE ... seems to know what's going on in his or her agency until the fit hits the shan. Simply astonishing, isn't it?

Oh no, you'd have to agree to co-write the thing with me. You have a happy talent for the language of da boyz.

Also, as we sat at our typewriters, we'd have to wear our fedoras and sip some rye.
