Vladimir Putin flies with cranes

VLADIMIR Putin will fly at the head of a flock of previously captive cranes. The Flight of Hope will feature Putin clad in a white robe, helmet and optional beak at the birds’ head.

Putin has opted for a hang glider as his mean of elevation. He will not be fired from a cannon. That would, says his reps, be ridiculous.

Mitt Romney likes to sing about boys: Phil Lynott’s Thin Lizzy and the Barry O’bama question

THIN Lizzy is providing Mitt Romney with some walk on music. But Phil Lynott’s mum says her son would not have backed the Republicans. Phil Lynott’s mother is called…Phil Lynott.

Philomena Lynott tells Hot Press magazine:

“As far as I am concerned, Mitt Romney’s opposition to gay marriage and to civil unions for gays makes him anti-gay – which is not something that Philip would have supported. He had some wonderful gay friends, as indeed I do, and they deserve equal treatment in every respect, whether in Ireland or the United States. Neither would Philip have supported his policy of taxing the poor and offering tax cuts to the rich, which Paul Ryan is advocating. There is certainly no way that I would want the Lynott name to be associated with any of those ideas.”

The best and worst political campaign slogan ever

IS this the best politcal campaign slogan ever? It might be the worst. It looks like it needs of an elipse:

“Senator AD Stephen does things…” …with dogs; …with lace; …with home furnishings that will knock you bandy; …with love; …badly..

Desmond Tutu is wrong to want Tony Blair tried for war crimes

GOD wants to arrest Tony Blair. Well, at least Archbishop and Nobel Peace Laureate Desmond Tutu does. He writes:

The immorality of the United States and Great Britain’s decision to invade Iraq in 2003, premised on the lie that Iraq possessed weapons of mass destruction, has destabilised and polarised the world to a greater extent than any other conflict in history.

RODNEY Trotter is standing for political office in Serbia. Trotter, last seen as the TV show Only Fools And Horses, is also known as Town Hall leader Igor Pavličić.

Says Mayor Pavličić:

“It’s too personal. I’ve had to move my family out of the city because of all this pressure…I am sure that the citizens of Novi Sad will recognize this as a lynch mob atmosphere and will support me. Therefore I want to tell the opposition I am not as much of a plonker as they claim I am.”

Isaac Aguigui: the Republican Convention soldier who plotted to murder Obama

WHAT do we know about Isaac Aguigui, a US Army private accused of plotting to murder Barack Obama? He would then “take over” Ft. Stewart in Georgia.

His group is alleged to have numbered Sgt. Anthony Peden, Pvt. Christopher Salmon, Pfc. Michael Burnet. Also under arrest for murder is Salmon’s wife, Heather Salmon.

Aguigui worked as a page at the 2008 Republican National Convention in Minnesota. He was arrested for the alleged murder of Pvt. Michael Roark who he, reportedly, thought would ruin the plan.

Prosecutors say Roark, 19, served with the four defendants in the 4th Brigade Combat Team of the Army’s 3rd Infantry Division and became involved with the militia.

SARAH Palin has been the victim of everyday sexism. Sarah Palin was the victim of misogyny,  spazmo Barack Obama’s pitbull in lipstick, the woman who breeds retards.

Highlights from Vladmir Putin book ‘The Life of A Galley Slave’

VLADIMIR Putin might be more than just a torso. Opposition leader Boris Nemtsov’s has given his name to a report entitled “The Life of A Galley Slave” about the wealth of Russian President Vladimir Putin. Nemstov and co-author Solidarity activist Leonid Martynyuk claim that President Vladimir Putin is using billions of taxpayers’’ rubles on 20 luxurious residences, dozens of jets, four yachts and a collection of exquisite wristwatches.

“One of the most serious reasons prompting V. Putin to hold on to power is the atmosphere of wealth and luxury to which he has become accustomed. In a country where more than 20 million people barely make ends meet, the luxurious life of the president is a blatant and cynical challenge to society. We absolutely cannot put up with this….We did not publish data on the cost of the clothes and things that Putin regularly uses: the suits, shoes and ties worth tens of thousands of dollars – mere trifles when compared to the villas, aeroplanes watches and cars…In a country where more than 20 million people can hardly make ends meet, the luxurious life of the president is a blatant and cynical challenge to society by a limitless ruler”

Toss Akin goes on rape attack: paternity test unlikely to follow

TODD Akin continues to dig his way to China. The Missouri politico who gave us a lesson on rape and women’s bodies (he said victims can’t get pregnant if it’s ‘legitimate’ rape – video), is the subject of a BBC headline: “Rape-gaffe candidate goes on the attack.” Well, so long as he does it right, there should be no embarrassing paternity tests. (Although watch out for the vaginal dentata.)

George Galloway pushes the toothpaste back into the tube: rape news update

ONE day on from his good sex guide to Julian Assange, George Galloway is pushing the toothpaste back into the tube. Having defined what is and what is not rape for the slack-jawed masses and put the allegations against Assange in the box marked “bad manners – must says please and thank you”, Galloway now adds:

“No never means yes and non-consensual sex is rape. There’s no doubt about it and that has always been my position. But, if my remarks on the podcast need clarification, I am happy to do that. Julian Assange, let’s be clear, has always denied the allegations. And this has all the hallmarks of a set-up. I don’t believe, from what we know, that the Director of Public Prosecutions would sanction a prosecution in Britain. What occurred is not rape as most people understand it. And it’s important to note that the two women involved did not initially claim it.”

George Galloway jumps on Julian Assange and rides him hard

OH. What joy. Isn’t it marvellous when someone you really don’t like puts their foot in it. Before we get to George Galloway and Julian Assange – what a team! – Robert Colvile calls to mind a saying:

 “Sit by the river long enough, and the bodies of your enemies will float by.”

No. Here’s Galloway, a leading light of the – get his – Respect Party  (oh, the irony) now representing Bradford in Parliament, telling us in his Goodnight With George Galloway podcast that Julian Assange is accused of nothing more than “bad sexual etiquette”. Galloway wasn’t in the room when Assange was with his alleged victims. But he paints a picture. Assange is wanted in Sweden to face allegations – which he denies – of sexual assault made by two women.

“But even taken at its worst, if the allegations made by these two women were true, 100 per cent true, and even if a camera in the room captured them, they don’t constitute rape. At least not rape as anyone with any sense can possibly recognise it. And somebody has to say this.”

Rape victims who fall pregnant should blame their female bodies, says Todd Akin

MUCH talk about rape in the news. But to cut through the debate, here’s Todd Akin on The Jaco Report. Ladies of Bosnia, Rwanada and, well, everywhere, if you were raped and fell pregnant as a result, blame your body. Todd Akin of Missouri is a Republican running for the U.S. Senate, and a graduate of the Covenant Theological Seminary:

Chris Stewart: Republican congressman tells of End of Times and Saudi King as ‘pawn of Lucifer’

MEET Chris Stewart, a Republican and a US congressman. He’s former Air Force pilot and a best-selling author. He used to fly the B-1B bomber. He says the USA is a “nation built upon the back of miracles“.

A July article in Roll Call (“The Newspaper of Capitol Hill”) profiles Chris Stewart, who will be a Congressman from Utah from November:

Stewart… is a conservative Republican who surprised political observers by winning Utah’s 2nd district nominating convention with more than 60 percent of the vote, thereby avoiding a primary.

…While in the USAF, he started writing, and his list of books includes a Latter Day Saints-like version of Tim LaHaye’s and Jerry B. Jenkins’ apocalyptic Christian fiction series “Left Behind,” as well as historical novels.

Stewart’s website notes that his latest book, “The Miracle of Freedom: Seven Tipping Points that Saved the World,” was a New York Times bestseller. Conservative media personality Glenn Beck praised the book, which might explain its popularity.
