Keep Calm Kick Ass-2

Good Saturday and weekend to you Widdershins!

So this weekend we won’t be able to relax so much and take it easy.  Nah, that’s not gonna happen so much this weekend because sometimes the attacks never end or rest.

Mrs. Alan Greenspan was interviewing the crusty old bastard the other day.  Bernie wanted to take a victory lap or two after his wins (?) in West Virginia and Indiana.  I question the word “wins” because they essentially got about the same number of delegates.  But Mrs. Greenspan was more interested in asking Sanders whether it was unfair to make Hillary have to fight on two fronts – one against him and one against Trump.  Well this set off the c.o.b. to no end:

In every state that we have won, in 19 states, we have had to take on the entire Democratic establishment. We’ve had to take on senators and governors and mayors and members of Congress. That’s what we have taken on, so please do not moan to me about Hillary Clinton’s problems.

Uh no Bernie, you’re confused.  You haven’t had to “take on” anyone.  It’s just the fact that senators and governors and mayors and members of Congress have endorsed your primary opponent, not you,  and that pisses you off.  Welp…too bad and so sad.  Deal with it.

Next, Charles Pierce of Esquire recently opined that maybe Clinton “isn’t the right candidate” to take on Drumpf.  Pierce acknowledges that the W.Va win was a bunch of hoo ha.

I realize that the results last night in West Virginia will not mean very much down the road. They are products of skewed demographics and the playfulness of a number of voters who would not vote Democratic in the fall if you paid them in gold to do so.

Pierce calls Hillary a “plodder” in horsey terms.  He feels she just doesn’t have the stuff to go up against a “rodeo clown”.

At the moment, I don’t see the Clinton campaign as being quick enough on its feet to do what it needs to do. (“Dangerous Donald”? Really?) Right now, it can’t put away Bernie Sanders, who is the most predictable candidate ever to stand in two shoes. Running as a serious candidate against a rodeo clown is always going to be a struggle.

I disagree with Pierce of course.  He’s been a Bernie guy since the beginning. Hillary has tried to place nice as much as possible with Sanders because “we can’t alienate his supporters”…wah wah.  She’ll have no such restrictions in the general against the rodeo clown.

So with that, let’s take a look at some songs of revenge by women.  The songs may reflect revenge from a romantic breakup but they’ll suit our purposes just fine.

black-line divider-no-background-th

(1) Me and Mr. Jones – Amy Winehouse

(2) You’re So Vain – Carly Simon

(3) A Broken Wing – Martina McBride

 (4) No Doubt – Sunday Morning

(5) Adele – Rolling in the Deep (Prolix’s favorite)

(6)Beyoncé – Irreplacable

Okay, so that’s some of my choices for songs concerning women who were scorned, not considered worthy or capable.  What are some that come to mind for you? Please add them in the comments below.

Good selections!

After all you put me through
You’d think I’d despise you
But in the end I wanna thank you
‘Cause you made that much stronger.

How about an oldie but goodie?

Great songs Fredster and like the chat-nostalgia touch. I’m trying to think of a song to add.

Apparently Nevada is having another “convention” to pick their delegates for the Dem convention, and the Bernie Bros are there in force, acting like animals. I will never understand why anyone thinks these caucuses are good things.

annie@5: Yeah, I was thinking about what kind of picture to put at the top of the post and the keep calm idea hit me. Just thought it would be a nice thing to add and reminder of our dear chat.

I loved this from that Kos link:

It is so bad that I understand they are booing Nina Turner because she called for calm, unity and commitment.

Oh noes! You know the Bernie folks are crazy when they’re booing the traitor uh Bernie supporter who flipped from being a Hillary supporter.

In the event you somehow thought that the general was going to be easy or without the Hillary smears, you’re sadly mistaken.
Take a look here at a movie the right has made and is releasing.

Geez, they just never freakin’ give up. 👿

Welp…never say the Lithuanians don’t have a sense of humor.

@9 from your link

Based on a heavily researched book by the same name, Clinton Cash is careful in laying out a series of facts that are mostly true, though both the book and the movie sometimes draws connections and conclusions that aren’t as solid as their evidence.

That makes absolutely no sense. Solid as their evidence? You mean the evidence that the guy who wrote the book admits he doesn’t have? That non-existent evidence?

@11: GAgal, in Clinton-bashing world that’s probably as legit as it gets.

GAgal, that “heavily researched” bit along with the “mostly true” and “aren’t as solid” had me rolling my eyes. Same ol’, same ol’, and I think Our Girl will, ahem, plod right on through to the Oval Office.

Yeah, Charles Pierce calling Hillary a “plodder”. That how you get shit done. Would you rather have show horse or a work horse? And we know neither Bernie or Trump are work horses.

Love the songs and the Chat tribute!

You know what? I bet that if Obama had run against Trump in 2008, he would have lost. It would have been two candidates whose strengths were empty rhetoric and no experience .

The reason Hillary will trounce Trump is because she is the responsible adult in the race. That is exactly what people are looking for this year, despite what the media claims.

@13 and 14: The “plodder” thing cracked me up too. Does he think Bernie is exciting? Hell, Hillary could yell “free stuff” too and I’m sure she’d get a standing ovation but she knows it’s not workable. The ones on the left who have complained about her not being “exciting” or whatever term they wish to use have never honestly asked how Bernie’s plans are going to work. Do they really think he’ll get a single proposition of his through the Congress as it’s currently made up? Yeah we might get the Senate back but most of these things have to start in the House. And they’ll never fly with someone like Paul Ryan as Speaker and in the hands of the Republicans.

I really don’t see how any thinking person will buy the b.s. in that movie.

I love it when people try to dance to a song that can’t be danced to. Like Bernie supporters. Get a clue Bernie.

OMG GAgal that was hysterical.

A few entries on the Peter Schweizer resume. The Government Accountability Institute is how the Koch money is washed, laundered, buffed and fluffed before it pads his deep and morally reprehensible pockets. Those he has touched or who have touch him include Dubya, Sarah Palin, Piyush Jindal, Breitbart, and the Hoover Institute. He’s in business now with Mark Theissen of Dubya WMD fame.

‘Nuff said.

http://mediamatters.org/blog/2015/04/21/who-funds-peter-schweizers-government-accountab/203355

Schweizer Worked For the Bush White House As A Speechwriting Consultant From 2008-2009.

Sarah Palin Hired Schweizer To Advise Her On Foreign Policy. Schweizer received $106,250 from Palin’s Sarah PAC.

Schweizer Helped Write Bobby Jindal’s Autobiography. Jindal wrote on the acknowledgements page of his 2010 book that Schweizer was “crucial to this book.”

Schweizer Has Worked For Breitbart.com And The Conservative Hoover Institution. Breitbart.com states that Schweizer is a Breitbart News senior editor-at-large.

Schweizer Heads The Government Accountability Institute (GAI), A “Free Markets” Organization.

@17, that’s it, just figured it out, we just don’t have enough people wearing marabou these days, if we did, the world would be a much better place and more fun too.

I had a wonderful friend — most fun person in the world who loved, loved, loved all things trimmed in marabou. A good number of the gifts I gave her during her life were marabou trimmed. Her favorite was a hot pink matching gown and bath duster trimmed in hot, hot pink marabou. I gave it to her in the hospital and she immediately put it on and demanded to be escorted around the hospital, including cafeteria and lobby, so everyone could see. She was asked if she was Marilyn Monroe reincarnated. She liked that.

@19 Last night I went to YT to watch Schweizer interviews. At some point I realized it had been edited and I looked at the YT account. GAI. I had to go through pages and pages to find something not GAI. They are really hyping this up. Now that Benghazi has dried up and the emails are about to fizzle out, they’re moving on to the Foundation. It’s all they’ve got left. Unless they just make something up out of the blue.

@21: Yep, GAI=unlimited and deep pockets.

Jindal wrote on the acknowledgements page of his 2010 book that Schweizer was “crucial to this book.”

Translation: Schweizer wrote the book.

I wonder how much Piyush’s PAC and other organizations had to spend on book purchases? I’m sure he gave many copies out as Christmas gifts. (gee thanks – just want I needed – a door stop)

@24, better use for Piyush’s book at Christmas time, starter for the yule log.

@17, haha! That is so true!

@20, that is a lovely story!

It blows my mind how many false books have been published about the Clintons over the years. I have seen some rubbish comments around the blogosphere about the Foundation. When they were accused of malfeasance before, they were able to counteract it.

socal, it’s hard to convince some people using facts when their minds are already made up!

Barbara Boxer has Hillary’s back. Best not mess with her.

@25: Much better use! 😆

@29: GAgal – stop that! Those are needed for Monday’s post! 😉

Uh oh! 😳 I’ve tried not to that before (many times) knowing a great reckoning is about to come down!

Back to the revenge theme.

Try “Wounded Heart” written by Jude Johnstone and sung, movingly, by Bonnie Raitt
