Brilliant Obama: “Happy Cinco De Cuatro!”

5 05 2009

Hey dummy, it’s “Cinco de Mayo!”

Remember, “don’t worry about the immigrants. They’ll learn English, you need to make sure your kids speak Spanish.”

I think conservative cutie, Mary Katharine Ham sums up Obama’s misstep best:

I like to note these little incidents when they happen, not because I think it makes Obama an idiot because he occasionally stumbles over his words, but because his somewhat overblown reputation as the most cerebral, eloquent, utterly erudite president of all time could really use a pricking every now and then.

Also, because if Bush had made such a blunder, it would have been the basis of a four-part MSNBC investigative series on the malapropism’s deleterious effects on the Republican Party’s attempts to woo Hispanic voters, Mexican-American relations, and our “place in the world.”


Will The Flu Last Long Enough To Bash Conservatives For It?

28 04 2009

I’m trying to get the jump on the most-likely-to-be used, liberal attempts to blame the Mexican Swine flu on America conservatives.

Here’s the OOTB Early Line:

  • American fat-asses drained the world of edible pork meat.
  • American corporations created an unfair market (think Walmart) on small farms across the world which only further eroded conditions on small farms.
  • American corporation’s pollution caused weak immune systems in pigs.
  • Wealthy Americans unaware of and partly responsible for destitute conditions nearby.
  • George Bush’s tough stance with Mexico shielded out health experts and community activists outreach directors from corresponding with Mexicans.
  • George Bush and other Christians politicized the scientists who wanted more anti-vaccines.
  • Republicans still don’t believe your grandfather was a monkey!
  • The republican American recession, hit Mexicans particularly hard because the amount of American dollars sent back to Mexico, by Mexicans in America was drastically reduced.
  • Illegal Immigration is racist, and this is no time to reevaluate some of the negative consequences it may or may not cause.   Look over there!
  • The Armed Forces could have been called to the border but they were all in Iraq.
  • America should have been more in-tune with Mexico’s socio-economic problems and lack of natural resources.
  • 46 million Americans do not have health care!!!


Reader submissions would be awesome.

Every Liberal On Earth Knows Joe The Plumber Had Unpaid Taxes

14 01 2009

How many know that Obama’s Treasury Secretary, Timothy Geithner, didn’t pay Social Security and Medicare taxes for several years, and that he employed an immigrant housekeeper who lacked proper work papers.

I say…3 (three) of them will find out.

1 (one) will care.

And that one person will use the Al Franken defense, which allows liberals to not pay taxes, health insurance or hire any minorities and still get elected; “He didn’t know.  It was an honest mistake.”

Why do honest mistakes always benefit those who make them?

UPDATE: Instapundit has comments that need to be seen.

Yeah, he could have saved himself a world of embarrassment for a mere $42.99. And Jim Treacher is right to note the discrepancy between the press’s ho-hum treatment of Geithner’s unpaid tax problems and its very different treatment of Joe The Plumber’s. But, see, Geithner’s not showing the press up.

Reader Brian Gates emails: “I’m not questioning Geithner’s taxes . . . but isn’t Joe Biden concerned about Geithner’s patriotism?”

And Donald Hertzmark writes: “I know a lot of yanks working at the Bank/Fund. The personnel department makes a VERY BIG DEAL about making sure that you understand to pay your FICA. This does not wash. Just another chiseler, like Rangel.”

UPDATE: Michelle Malkin links Byron York

The tax allowance has turned out to be a key part of the Geithner situation. This is how it worked. IMF employees were expected to pay their taxes out of their own money. But the IMF then gave them an extra allowance, known as a “gross-up,” to cover those tax payments. This was done in the Annual Tax Allowance Request, in which the employee filled out some basic information — marital status, dependent children, etc. — and the IMF then estimated the amount of taxes the employee would owe and gave the employee a corresponding allowance.

At the end of the tax allowance form were the words, “I hereby certify that all the information contained herein is true to the best of my knowledge and belief and that I will pay the taxes for which I have received tax allowance payments from the Fund.” Geithner signed the form. He accepted the allowance payment. He didn’t pay the tax. For several years in a row.

When Mexican Beauty Queens Get Caught Ridin’ Dirty

24 12 2008


Get this girl on reality TV right now.  Matter of fact, get her Obama’s Senate seat.

One of the most caliente Mexicans we’ve ever seen, Laura(?) Zuniga, got a little too gangsterish in a Mexican smuggler’s truck that was caught with two AR-15 assault rifles, 38 specials, 9mm handguns, nine magazines, 633 cartridges and $53,300 in U.S. currency.

Zuniga told police that she was planning on traveling to Bolivia and Colombia to go shopping.

Um, earth to Senorita Zuniga!!!  Shopping in Bolivia?  Like, that’s what Minneapolis and the Mall of America is for! Ok, mami?


And in case Miss Zuniga is out there; Um, la tierra a Zúñiga Señorita! Ir de compras en Bolivia? Como, que es lo que es de Minneapolis y el Mall de America es para! Bueno, mami poco sucio?

Maybe the judge was just following this warped advice on how not to be “embarrassed.”

Jam Packed Volkswagen Beetle Escorting 21 Clowns Crashes On Way To Circus

16 11 2008

Ok, I need to clarify….”Clowns” = Undocumented Workers Illegal Immigrants and “Circus” = The United States of America, and I think the “Beetle” was really more like a “Coyote.”
