What, I thought he was the Pig of the Day?

And me without my snuggie.

Also, notice there is no mention of Ledbetter on either PUMA Pac or The Confluence today(No Quarter mentions it though).

I guess, since President Hillary Clinton didn’t sign the Act, that it must not really help women.

Obama should have stepped down and let Hillary sign it. What a misogynist!

Hillaryis44 didn’t let us down:

Hillary is responsible for the Lily Ledbetter bill. Pelosi was strictly a bureaucratic functionary. It is just a political lie and everyone know it. Taking credit for things she did not do is another line of attack against her. This should be interesting.

The phrase “pumatically sealed” just popped into my mind.  As in, impermeable to the reality of a person, place, or thing as long as it involves President Obama.

JOE BIDEN WAS GROPING HILLARY heads exploding in 3, 2 ...

Actually in all seriousness I wonder what Joe said to Hil cause she was cracking up, they appear to have a really good relationship now and it is nice to see after all the acrimony of the primaries.  Notice how she goes to pat his hand and then has to wipe away a tear.  Nice moment.

I have to get started on making dinner (it’s a Rachel Ray recipe—yaaaaaaaay!!!), but I’m pretty sure that’s a load of crap (surprise!).  I believe George Miller was the chief sponsor in the House and Barbara Mikulski was the chief sponsor in the Senate. She was a co-sponsor, sure, but so was Obama and even Olympia Snowe.  I think Specter was, too.

After watching that beginning to end I am once again reminded why that young fellow garnered my support from the day of his decision to run.

I like hearing the man speak.

Actually, I think they always got along.  I remember they did a video Q&A thingy together right after the election.  Can’t remember if I posted it or not.

(it’s a Rachel Ray recipe—yaaaaaaaay!!!)

YUMMO!

EEsh, I wanna barf right into my bottle of EVOO.

Heh, please barf into the GB.

Here’s the recipe.  She drives me nuts, but this soup is really damn good. Chris saw her make it once on her show and we’ve made it a bunch of times since then.

Wait a minute, you’re cooking and not her? I thought you were a misogynist Democrat!

I’m just doing some of the prep work.  My wife isn’t inordinately pleased with my knife work (I cut things too big because I suck at it), so she does most of it. I fully own a few dishes, but this isn’t one of them.

I do all the chopping because I like to eat before 10pm. If she chops I can measure the onions with a micrometer.

That soup sounds fabulous!

PS: AROO, AROO, AROO—WOMAN-LYNCHING ALERT!!1!! SLAP IN THE FACE!!!11!!!

Samantha Power is taking a senior policy job in the White House. Yes, she of the monster-slander. Cue exploding craniums in 3…2…1…

That is absolutely stellar news, Betty.  I was bummed I hadn’t heard anything about Power.  If you have time, want to do a quick post about it?

Rachael may yelp about yummo-ness, and she sometimes presents horrifying concoctions like cheeseburger salad, but she’s good for getting hesitant neophytes relaxed enough to bang a pan down over a burner and cook themselves a simple dinner. Mr. Polly and I ate pretty well after I discovered her.

If only there were a way to adjust the sound levels to eliminate the forced giggle. Maybe the mute button and closed-captioning.

Nothing to be done about the weird semaphore gestures, though.

And BTW, she preceded Favreau’s girlfriend into Maxim. She wore naughty chef togs, of course.

Oh snap.  Wonkette is on the case… I see Blog War II in the works

Will do, Kev.

Mrs. Polly, I have nothing against Rachel, in fact I would watch her quite regularly. As a fellow who learned to cook delicious, easy to fix, fast meals in the firehouse kitchen, I agree wholeheartedly that she makes what appears difficult, easy to understand and prepare.

The EVOO shit just got grating ....

Ha ha, Newell can’t quit ‘em either. Thanks for the tip, Litlebritdifrnt.  Just hat tipped you above.

Betty, thx. If you don’t have time, lemme know and I can do.  My lovely wife got lost in her book on the subway and I think she just called me from somewhere on the outskirts of Coney Island.  Dinner will be starting late tonight.

THIS IS A SLAP IN THE FACE TO HILLARY!@

If you ever start to wonder if PUM^‘s are barking mad just remember: They supported the guy who was against this law and thought women should go back to school if they wanted equal pay.

I have to get started on making dinner

I just dropped off Mrs Scooter at the airport, came home, and cooked old famiry lecipe like mama make.

Velly Velly much Happiness La Choy Chow Mein over crunchy noodles.

The kids never had it before, and they are loving it. I grew up on that crap, but since I haven’t eaten it in thirty years, I’m diggin it too.

Don’t tell any of those Pagans that hang around here, I might get ex-communicated

Apropos of nothing, I think PUMA stands for Put it Up My Ass, i.e., “saddleback me.”

oh my gawrsh - me laughing, laughing so hard!

ps kevin, I really enjoyed reading about your dinner preparations. don’t forget the oo (that’s in case you don’t have evoo) - *blagh*

“...horrifying concoctions like cheeseburger salad…”

She made some ungodly amalgamation of a Reuben sandwich and noodles on my teevee last night, and then slopped a wretched combination of mayo, ketchup and pickle relish over lettuce to accompany it. I nearly tossed my waffle. But I have tried and enjoyed many of her other recipes.

mayo, ketchup and pickle relish

In my mother’s house that was known as Russian dressing.

A comment from Wonkette:

“PUMAs give vaginas a bad name.”

wine = monitor.

Heh, yeah, or thousand island in ours.  Mr. marindenver has the hots for Rachel and Giada too.  I liked Rachel OK at first but got burned out by all the perkiness.  I am a cooking purist when I have time to cook, which means they either get something really good for dinner or something from the grocery store deli.  Being called to go watch American Idol, my new secret passion (since I got hooked on Cookie last year. ;-)).  Will check Wonkette after dinner.

The news about Samantha Power is OUTSTANDING!!  And Hillary surely knows that everyone says stuff in the heat of politics.  I mean she’s said plenty herself.

Murphy noticed around 10PM that her attempt to ignore Obama’s signing the Lilly Ledbetter act was being generally mocked, and so made this sour, ungracious, and selective announcement:

murphy 01.29.09 at 10:05 pm

p.s. the wankits are PISSED that we havent been fainting with joy because obama signed the ledbetter act, which easily passed both houses of congess, is basically a no-brainer, and was sponsored, introduced, and championed by Sec. Clinton and Rep. Carolyn Maloney (among several other prominent women Dems in congress).

So, this is for you, Wankits:

Dear Mr. obama,

Congratulations on doing such an AWESOME job of signing your name! I know you got LOTS of practice at your many book-signings and other events with your adoring followers, but seriously, you have a smokin’ STYLE with the ball-point.

Sincerely,

Darragh Murphy
Puma PAC Member

Now who was it who was against the Lilly Ledbetter act? Oh yes, the candidate who PUMA was trying to swing the election for. And funny thing, that act seems to have been sponsored by Senator Barbara Mikulsky and Hillary was one of the “several other prominent women Dems” that co-sponsored. There were men Dems as well. Actually, 53 senators co-sponsored the bill, including Terrible Traitorous Teddy. That’s a lot of prominence there.
http://www.maplight.org/map/us/bill/79240/default/votes /vote-357852

But Murphy’s got her game plan down for the next eight years, should Obama prove irritatingly apt to sign agreeable laws benefitting women, children, what-have-you. After all, they’re not paying her to actually process information and draw conclusions. That’s a no-brainer.

There was a character in one of the L. Frank Baum books: the Glass Cat. She was vain, selfish, transparent, and very proud of her pink brains, which could be seen working away, usually to no avail. Somehow, she always ended up covered with mud.

A good character to add to the flying monkeys.

My favorite thing about the PUMAs is that they think they’re participating in National politics when they’re only really involved in blogospheric navel-gazing politics.  And they still fail at it!

They are essence of Sourpuss. The signing of the first bill of Obama’s presidency was on every channel, with replays. Definitely a Netflix night for the PUMAs. 

Their avoidance skills may prevent the image of real Hillary’s real shoulder really being fondled by Joe Biden from being burned onto their retinas, but what I love is that Hillary liked it.

And along came Mrs Polly,

We could go on about their willful ignorance, but the main thing is that our team is rocking the White House, whether those (30-40?) PUMAs know it or not.

MB, it’s true. Every morning I wake up and remember that Barack Obama is the president, and feel a combination of cheer and pity. The rank-and-file PUMAs are a pitiable lot, mostly, as with any cult. But their leaders are not so much pitiable as contemptible, stoking their followers’ fears and taking their money.

They are stagnating in a backwater now, but all it takes is some sort of flood and a lot of poisonous bacillae could be back out in the water supply.

Also I have this little problem, a kind of vaudeville-sketch problem, where I’m perfectly fine unless somebody says PUMA!

Did you say PUMA????
Slowly I turned, step by step, inch by inch….

Someone named sm77 (small mind ‘77?) over at The Confluence of Stupid has decided to acknowledge the signing of the Lilly Ledbetter act into law, but only to criticize Obama for not signing the Paycheck Fairness Act, which has not been voted on in the Senate (but Obama co-sponsored when he was there).  Small Mind ‘77 goes on to claim that the Ledbetter act does the exact opposite of what it does:

“and it will make it harder for women to sue an employer who is discriminating.”

You know, I’m starting to think that the PUMAs aren’t really interested in equal rights, women’s issues, or even Hillary Clinton, but are really just eternally focused on hating Obama.  Wonder why….

mantis: sm77 defends her stance (more openly than you’ll ever see on The Effluence) on Stupidpumas (first and third threads, last I looked).
