I was wondering how many of the people who read that will recognize it.

Steyn's musical tastes are surprisingly broad for a one-time entertainment critic.

Frank Rich, for example, would no have idea what the provenance of the lyric was.

I can honestly say I've never been disappointed in Barack Obama.

Anyone who says he is disappointed in Obama is only showing how dumb he is to have believed him in the first place.

Reminds me of the tale of the “trailer” for Glenn Beck’s book, with the lines (from memory) “when the dog returns to his vomit, and the sow returns to her mire, and the burnt fool’s bandaged finger goes wabbling back to the fire”, everyone over at Huffpo went on about “What kind of mindless blather is this?”, not realizing that it was written by an author with a Nobel Prize in Literature.

Who happens to be one of my most favorite authors ever. My children...and my grandchildren...have been raised on Rudyard Kipling.

I wouldn't expect a liberal to familiar with the genre.

He was awarded a Nobel prize when it meant something...

I would say he is qualified to be called The Perpetrator Of The Greatest Long Con in US American History, perhaps the world. So, I think you could call him the greatest con man ever.

Styn also referred to 0bama as the Milli Vanilli president.

Seriously! That is too funny - and gives me some wicked ideas for bumper stickers!

If we just brush our teeth for at least two minutes, and drink plenty of water, maybe even stock up on duct tape and plastic sheeting, and I’m SURE everything will be ok.

Do they not understand that if they do that, everything in this country is simply going to STOP? Obviously they don’t remember the gas lines, the inflation. But they are going to be in the hurt locker too.

Rudyard Kipling, railing against PC progressivism a hundred years ago.

Thanks! That is my work, and I do have it set up as actual bumper stickers.

We must neuter him in November. It doesn’t matter his performance 40% or his crimes...40% will still adore him and follow and defend him. How do we dissolve this planter’s wort?

But they are going to be in the hurt locker too.

Listening to and reading the left, one notes that there is much enthusiasm for "punishing America" -- because we've had it "too good, for too long".

I've never understood this kind of thinking. And you doubtless don't either.

You'd think all of them must be living in a commune, off of an organic garden, growing their own weed. And they're vegetarians. Their computers must be rigged to bicycle generators.

They're ungrateful cretins and f#$*ing crazy, is what they are.

Anyone else think that Carville's "We-uh dy-in down heah" speech was Hillary's informal announcement of her candidacy?

The thought crossed my mind that the fact that this was Carville saying this must carry some significance, for Machine Clinton to allow some daylight to be shown between their serried ranks and The One.

Remember, too, that Rahm is supposed to be leaving in the middle future here somewhere. That's been in he back of my mind for a while. When I first heard it, I thought it must be just Rahm wanting to "move on" ...... but now, hmmmmm.

At bottom, that's the only way blame can be assigned.

Actually, Transocean owns a piece, too -- it eventuated that their rig crew made some unauthorized field modifications to the controls of their blowout preventer stack and kill lines. They were not, as they say in the industry, "100% API" (American Petroleum Institute, i.e. "standard").

Halliburton may also own a sliver for selling BP a "magic" new cement formula which may have failed under testing conditions in the "Macondo" well.

Ironic that Obama chose a Greek backdrop for his inaugural ball, isn't it? Now he's trying to turn the U.S. into Greece.

LOL, in more ways than one! -- and here I thought the Greek convention theme referred only to his favorite propensities, not his platform.

When I was much younger my parents had an album by Johnny Horton which we played constantly. Such great songs! The Battle of New Orleans, North To Alaska, Sink the Bismarck, Comanche, plus many more...

Perhaps. Fact is, we don't know. And won't know until all the facts come out.

In the meantime, BP bears the ultimate responsibility. Even though, in fact, it may bear none of the blame.

Before all this started, I was saying the same thing. And I guess I still think we needed a swift kick in the ass. But nevertheless, my aim is for us to get up and out of it as soon as possible, and these b@stards are in the way.

On the other hand, sometimes I believe THIS:

“Look for it only in books, for it is no more than a dream remembered, a Civilization gone with the wind….”
