A Flying Pig? A Harbinger? Nah.

It’s been pretty boring over at The Swamp recently. Most of the mock-worthy lizards either wandered off or melted into the flavorless pea soup of sub-average intelligence served daily at Charlie’s Culver City Diner. Then I noticed something odd.

CJ on Keystone Pipeline

Dem. Mary Landrieu is a loser, and Senate Democrats are obstructionists.

Both parts of that statement are true, but to hear it from Our Boy Ponytail is very unusual. Does this mean he’s having another “Why I Pantsed My Brain” epiphany? I doubt it, but I wonder where the memo came from. It couldn’t have been an original thought from Charles, because he hasn’t had an original idea since Mouse-Ka-Mania (and he probably stole that one, too).

So what gives? Here are a few possibilities.

1. Charles believes that the Keystone Pipeline is a good idea for American oil independence, jobs and economic prosperity and at the same time cripple the finances of Middle East terrorists;

2. Charles believes that if the Keystone Pipeline Bill passed the Senate that Mary Landrieu would win the runoff election in Louisiana, Dems would gain a seat in the Senate, and Obama would use the pocket veto anyway;

3. Charles moved his blog from center-right to center-left to far-left, and now he’s going to try a balancing act to boost his stats.

4. Somebody told Johnson to say that.

Number 1 is unlikely as the Democrat Party is run by Socialists, and American success is bad because we’re greedy or something. Number 2 is also unlikely because Charles doesn’t think of resulting consequences. Number 3, well, fat chance. Chuck burned one bridge and saw the results, and he’s not going to repeat the mistake.

    He doesn’t see a downside to passing the bill, because Ozo will veto it anyway.

    Regarding Chunky’s confused post on Keystone, I read it as him trying to land a punchy bra-snap on the departing Landrieu, calling her a failure and so forth. I wouldn’t read anything much into it, as far as signalling a change of political course. He’s going to ride the Libturd Comet into the ground.

    Gus is interested. He’ll gladly pay you Tuesday…

    Decided to take a wade into The Swamp (and yes, the wetsuit is being disinfected).
    Besides the Democrats, other obstructionists include the FBI, the Saudis, the Palistinians and the Bush Administration.

    Charles Wed, Feb 5, 2003 8:38:12am
    Yes, obviously the FBI screwed up … AGAIN. But those of you who are on the Saudis’ side seem to be forgetting what is involved here. This woman lived with a man who clearly had terrorist intentions. Since when does hypocrisy (if that’s what it is) trump intent to commit mass murder?

    Criticize the FBI all you want. I’m there. But to say the Saudis did the right thing is to ignore their obvious intent to obstruct US terror investigations.

    Charles Wed, Jun 24, 2009 9:45:48am
    The Bush White House did their best to obstruct the 9/11 families’ investigations into Saudi connections, too.

    re: #83 obdicut

    The first Bush policy has this part:

    Which is an effective ban on new lines.

    The second one doesn’t reverse that, but amplifies it with some rather strange language about protecting embryos as ‘living members of the human species’.

    Taken together, they form a very obstructionist policy. I’m glad we’re past that.

    Yes, I totally agree. The Bush administration did everything they could to obstruct this research, and they did it in a way that gave them deniability. But the line about “living members” is a dead giveaway about their true motivations.

    re: #53 rurality

    I know people prefer to lump all issues with Bush as BDS, it’s easier to be dismissive and it makes ODS seem more of the same, less insane. However, articles like those you sighted, Bush’s ‘absolutely horrible” record on science, are why I don’t think a lot of Bush criticism is not derangement.

    There was plenty of deranged commentary about Bush from the left while he was president – that’s a fact.

    But the criticism from scientists whose research was suppressed, shelved, ignored, and classified without good reason — that’s not derangement. It’s true. The Bush administration worked very hard to obstruct scientific research, and in many cases it was done to either: 1) pander to special interests such as energy groups, or 2) pander to the religious right, as in their obstructionist regulations on stem cell research.

    re: #221 sattv4u2

    I’m not sure why you’re asking for that. Is there a reason that you’re framing the question in such an odd way

    I read what you wroteYou stated that the GOP attacks science. FineNOW ,,, THE worst thing they could do (imho) is block legislation that would benefit the USA in particular and perhaps the world in general

    SO ,, I asked if there was any such leg. that they had blocked/

    There are many many examples. One off the top of my head — the Bush administration’s blocking federal funds for stem cell research, one of the most promising areas of medical science, with possible huge benefits for all mankind.

    And the efforts of the GOP went far beyond simply making it illegal for the government to fund the research — Chris Mooney’s book documents the campaign of disinformation, propaganda, and obstructionism very well.

    If you believe the spin on Fox News, by way of Frank Luntz, the Republicans like, totally won the health care summit!

    I watched it. The Republicans didn’t win. On balance, the GOP pols looked like obstructionist buffoons. The Democrats weren’t a whole lot better, but this was definitely not the victory the reality-deprived right wing is claiming.

    Charles Wed, Jun 30, 2010 5:54:19pm
    What about Biden’s larger point, though?

    I agree with him that we’re seeing a storm of obstructionist tactics from the GOP, and it’s probably going to get even worse.

    Charles Sun, Aug 1, 2010 11:25:33am
    One thing that would be helpful in any discussion about the Palestinian people would be to acknowledge the role played by the surrounding Arab states, who have absolutely no interest in seeing the conflict resolved, and in fact do everything possible to keep the Palestinians in permanent “refugee” status. They’re more useful as propaganda tools that way.

    The influence of this deliberately obstructionist position is huge. If there was an honest desire to resolve the conflict from the Arab world, it would go a long way toward a real solution. Instead, there remains a very real and very pervasive attachment to the idea of totally wiping out the state of Israel.

    Charles Sun, Dec 26, 2010 6:54:53pm
    The GOP’s obstructionism on this issue was absolutely despicable, and that’s what Jon Stewart recognized. Good for him for refusing to play politics as usual, and calling out the assholes for what they were.

    re: #66 Gus 802

    Boehner did a good job.

    It was a good speech, but let’s face it, nothing but the usual political boilerplate. Promises to work with Democrats, etc. None of it is true; they’re going to be more obstructionist and absolutist than ever, and it’s going to start right away.

    No argument, no discussion, only a vapid insult.

    Fear monkey sensors being tripped….

    Who the f**k would be stupid enough to download all their personal images on to the blog of an unstable, vindictive, paranoid, ponytailed fat man?

    Next, The Chunkster is going to roll out the LGF personalized Credit Card and Social Security Number Vault System where you can download all your personal information and passwords for “safekeeping”.

    The best part is you don’t even have to be registered at LGF to use it!

    The LGF personalized Credit Card and Social Security Number Vault System will register you automatically using the numbers and information you downloaded and charge $80.00 $79.95 to your credit card so you don’t have to see all those pesky sex ads!

    Groovy! 😆

  12. Pakimon says:

    Is Gus talking about the rats or the cockroaches?

    Maybe he’s referring to all the rancid chicken pot pies splattered all over the garage. 😆

    • Octopus says:

      Also, the screaming of his sister when she sees the mice and cockroaches attracted to the rancid slop. She can hit high C after she’s had her morning coffee.

    • Because says:

      He’s talking about the neighborhood cats looking for rats.

  13. Pakimon says:

    TRANSLATION: He bought a new hamster to power his “blazing fast new server”.

  14. Perhaps he was just being sarcastic.

  15. OLT's Gus Misses These Jewels says:

    The whole LGF image library consists of menu boards, Nazi flags, Alouette’s tributes to St. Pancake, her racist attacks on Condi Rice, and a disturbing number of photos of moderately-sized semi-erect human penises in grey briefs.

  16. Octopus says:

    He’s having a nightmare about the last time he had a frickin’ job.

  17. Octopus says:

    Insanity at the university:

    Foreign students are particularly shell-shocked by the school’s climate. “The Asians are just terrified,” says a recent graduate. “They walk into this hyper-racialized environment and have no idea what’s going on. Their attitude in class is: ‘I don’t want to talk. Please don’t make me talk!’ ”

  18. Octopus says:


    Sharpton’s employment of Critical Race Theory, aka, Everything Be Racist, is second to none. In his words:

    Every time there’s a Sean Bell or a Ferguson or a Trayvon Martin, we go through my taxes. It’s the same agreement, y’all.

    Same agreement. Only on MSNBC, where Madcow sets the tone. 😆

    • Bunk X says:

      Going after Willie Nelson is so old school.

      • Octopus says:

        Willie paid his taxes, though, after being braced by the feds. Seems Sharpton has somehow escaped such a Final Reckoning, all these years. Might take a pardon from the Unicorn Messiah, to keep him out of stir down the road.

    Hey Briareus how about waiting 24 hours between DoD threads and showing respect for other posters work by letting their threads stay up a bit?

  20. Arachne says:

    And in further news, Ginger’s follower count is now 135 more than Itchy.
    Now, of course, Itchy will say it does not matter.

    I propose the name of this thread be changed from a Flying pig to a Flying Lidane, because the original title is very offensive to Furious lurker

        I haven’t smoked any evil weed since around 1982. I smoked a lot, before that. I wonder how it would affect me now. And then I’ll get some coke, and some ‘ludes to take the edge off.

        Most people my age take some kind of daily medication. I take an occasional dose of ibuprofen. A drink now and then. Like some kind of monk…who likes to look at pretty girls. Just look. “Creep,” as the kids say. Stupid kids! 😆

  23. JimboXL says:

    Obola wiped his mouth on a napkin after eating a hotdog, signed it, said it was an amnesty order, and Dims cheer.

  24. Octopus says:


    Another one — this time, Cos used a handsome friend to procure his target. Appears his wife and the friend were cognizant of his intentions. This is pretty dark. Hulk smash!

    I was watching TMZ tonight, and they said Cos was fixin’ to “come out swinging” against his accusers, in the next few days. Seems to me, that’s how he got himself into trouble in the first place. Hi-yoooo!

  25. Because says:

    And he also knows Charles Johnson is a Johnson.

  26. JimboXL says:

    Dims argue that it is impossible bus even 100 illegals back across the border, but I can guarantee they’ll find a way to bus 5 million to voting booths all over America to pull the toilet flusher for D.

    Speaking of which, has LGF opened its own borders to allow unregistered users to post on the site in honor of their lord’s latest proclamation? No? Sensible for an entire country, but not a blog? Hmm.

    • dwells38 says:

      Ha. Good point. No they’re very exclusive. Like a country club of “Birchers”. LOL!

      Wouldn’t it be rich if they were invaded by hyper-liberal minorities chastising them constantly for their white patriarchal “microaggession” and voting to remove Chunky and Gus?

    • ISpeakJive says:

      Yeah, every single one of them that’s working stole or forged a social security number. It’s just like having a sock!!

    Uh oh.

    I think another dishwasher is about to get defiled. 😆

    Douchebaggiest Libturd in show biz, next to Jon Stewart, has opinions about people who would seek to limit the size and reach of government. Shocking. 😐

      Oh…wait. It gets better:
