#rsrh PJTV’s Week in Blogs…

…is finally on YouTube?

Apparently.  And Stephen Green was in rare form this week; check it out.  And check out his other stuff, too.


Mr. Snider on Mr. and Mrs. Gore.

(More or less via Vodkapundit) This would be Mr. Dee Snider, of the band Twisted Sister: the Gores, of course, are Al and Tipper. You may remember that Snider and the Gores had a run-in roughly a quarter of a century ago over quote-unquote ‘family values.’ Mr. Snider revisited this controversy recently, mostly to compare his and their long-term marital/parenting strategies:

I have two responses.



#rsrh Vodkapundit goes off on stupid web tricks.

I’m with Steve on this. Particularly the second one: I don’t need websites to include an often-useless link in the material that I’m cutting and pasting. It doesn’t annoy me as much as it does Steve, but then I am a forgiving and mild-mannered sort.

No, really.


#rsrh, Hey made Vodkapundit’s Week in Blogs!

As seen here, for this.

By the way, would it be unkind of me to note that the poll situation that we’re seeing now, post health-care passage, is starting to look for the Democrats like that scene in Apollo 13 where they tried shutting off the reactant valves for the fuel cells? – I mean, is it kind for me to note it again?  I can’t remember if I mentioned it on this blog, and it’s a startlingly apt reference.  If passing that health care bill wasn’t enough to recoup the President’s steady losses in popularity (their primary strategy to get at-risk Democrats re-elected), then ‘victory’ just got redefined for the Democratic party as ‘survival.’

Just saying.

The SUGAR Act of 2009.

Short for the “Shut Up and Go Away Reform act of 2009.” As creator Vodkapundit notes (H/T Ed Driscoll), it’s very simple:

We as a nation will pay Obama and Geithner 1% off the top of any and all stock market profits. In exchange, they’ll shut up and go away. They’ll keep their jobs; they just won’t do anything. Surely, Treasury couldn’t do any worse with 18 of 18 top positions vacant, than it has with only one position filled. And after 75 years of presidential overreach, it might be a nice change of pace to have a chief executive whose chief goal is to enjoy a nice cocktail.

If you think that this is actually not that great an idea… no, it’s probably not. As Stephen Green himself admits; but the idea still resonates with him, and Ed, and Glenn Reynolds, and probably a whole lot of libertarian-friendly types.
