Bitter Old Man Fred Thompson

He's mad that even FOX Noize is picking on him.

So you know, they’re entitled to their opinion, but for you to highlight nothing but the negative in terms of these polls, and then put on your own guys, who have been predicting for four months, really, that I couldn’t do it, you know, kind of skews things a little bit.

He added:
"And get offa my lawn!"

"I'll get you, Dick Tracy!"

Thanksgiving Wishes

One big thing to be thankful for:
This time next year, we will have a new president-elect.

If George Bush or Dick Cheney is reading this, I'll repeat:
This time next year, we will have a new president-elect.
Got it?

I dare call it treason.

I've said it before: There are a lot of Minnesotans that do not consider themselves Americans.

“This hurts our feelings a little bit,” said Margaret Hayford O’Leary, chairwoman of the Norwegian department at St. Olaf College in Northfield, Minn. Will the Midwest soon become “flyover land,” Professor O’Leary wondered, even for Norwegians?

Residents have sent letters to members of Norway’s Parliament. They have sought help from Norwegian-American leaders like former Vice President Walter F. Mondale and Roger Moe, a former Minnesota state legislator. A delegation arranged a trip to Norway to complain.

Some question claims that the issue is one of financial shortfalls. What, they ask, about the government pension fund of more than $300 billion that Norway has amassed in recent years from its oil exports?

“It’s silly to think that this place is somehow going to break the budget for Norway,” said Anne Kanten, a resident of Milan, Minn., which calls itself Norwegian Capital U.S.A. “What’s more Norwegian than Minnesota, anyway?”

Memo to traitors: When Walter Mondale is your last best hope, you're done.
How about assimilating already?

Fred Thompson Update!

Ol' Pruneface has a blog.

If you wanna make those terrorists die
And make Osama cry
It’s not too late
To get behind Fred in ‘08

If you want to keep the boarders secure
And the races pure
If its Mexicans you hate
Throw your support behind Fred ‘o8.

If you don’t trust the Mor-man
And about keeping your guns you give a damn
If a woman’s place is in the kitchen cleaning a plate
Then you want to vote for Fred in ‘08

Late Night Comedy

This one from Mrs. Machine, having just watched a TV show about a family with a pair of twins and octuplets:
"I'd hate to live next to them. I'd keep putting out 'Have a Heart' traps."

Come ON!

You can't tell me this isn't Fred Thompson.

Just to remind you:

This is what Fred Thompson REALLY looks like:

Dear Television Executives

I am more than willing to cross the picket line of those "writers."

I have some good ideas for how "How I Met Your Mother" should play out (hint: Richard Belzer enters the scene), as well as some "retooling" ideas for "Law And Order" (hint: Richard Belzer leaves the force to run for President). I will work cheap, too. All I ask is that I be allowed to develop my sitcom idea: Matlock Goes To Jail.

Let's do lunch.


Frankie Machine

Vote Belzer!

DARE to fight Fred Thompson

The Elderly Menace Candidate runs with drug dealers.

Bill Clinton, at least, threw his own family in jail for drug violations.

Not ol' Pruneface. He stands by his trafficking friends.

A day late

But I think if I had really wanted to go as something scary yesterday, I would have gone as Scary Old Man Fred Thompson:

I think the sight of him made that young woman vomit.

News from Home

This is all true:

Calvin College recruited a black professor, in an effort to encourage diversity on campus.

As a condition of employment, they made her agree to become a member of a Christian Reformed Church. You know, to be welcoming. Worship like us, or you're fired.

And that's what happened. As an African-American, she didn't feel comfortable in a Christian Reformed Church.
(I could have predicted that).

So, they are thinking about firing her.

However, this quote makes me wonder how familiar this professor was with the Christian Reformed Church and Grand Rapids:
"I wish there was a (Christian Reformed) congregation in Grand Rapids that was fully multicultural or even that there was one that was largely African-American," Beversluis said.
