Justice Roberts Spins the Busytown Mysteries Wheel

Filed under: blogging, politics — Tags: , — edge of the sandbox @ 4:41 pm

DH suggests that we replace SCOTUS with Busytown Mysteries spinning wheel.  Unlike SCOTUS and like all other creations of the superb children’s book author Richard Scarry, Busytown is charming.  It is our opinion that Busytown Mysteries has to be the cutest board game out there.  Since the Obamacare majority opinion is sloppily written, has little to do with the Constitution and Justice Roberts himself probably doesn’t believe a word he wrote, why not a spinning wheel?

If the arrow points to “Pig eats” a pre-K class gets to write the majority opinion. If it points to “Goldbug” you get to be on the right side of history

But enough about Obamacare.  Here is some good news: blogger buddy Leslie Loftis of American Housewife [Sometimes] in London fame is now blogging for PJLifestyle.  Wow!  Fix your bookmarks.

Count on the Jerusalem Post to complicate things.  The Catholic church hired Alinsky to break up communist cells?  I recall reading in National Review that Alinsky loved mayhem more than any kind of ideology.

Sarah Hoyt says that she is a culturist, which is funny because that’s what DH says about himself.

Jonah Goldberg has a book on language, but here is Thomas Sowell talking about the left advancing statism through language distortions.

Anne’s Opinions has a comprehensive discussion of Putin’s recent visit to Israel.

Gateway Pundit: Muslims in Dearborn shout “Allahu akbar” and stone Christians.

Two thirds of Americans think Barack Obama is better suited to handle an alien invasion than Mitt Romney.  They are probably right.

Bookworm Room notes the absence of Obama bumper stickers in SF and LA.  I don’t recall a lot of stickers in ’08 either, but in that election Obama merch was everywhere — canvass bags, onesies and the like.  Back then the long primary season generated plenty of enthusiasm for the black nominee, and the chic O logo was in vogue.  This year, I see no Obama 2012 merchandize, and stickers, although they’ve been appearing here and there, are even less common.  I say about 20% of all Obama automobile signage I see here in the Bay Area is still the classic ’08 edition.

Speaking of the Obama campaign, I saw a few bloggers (don’t remember where I saw it) noting his whiny email about the very distinct possibility of being outspent this year.  Yet another Obama campaign email told me to hurry up and enter one of his dinner raffles:

I wasn’t a math major or anything, but I know my way around a calculator.

Your chances of winning Dinner with Barack are MUCH better than you might think.

This isn’t some super-mega-never-gonna-win lottery. It’s not like getting struck by lightning or eaten by a bear — or whatever people say when they’re trying to get across that something is really, really rare.

More likely than being struck by lightning — yep, that’s a pretty good chance… oh, wait!  Are they telling me the dinner with Barack scam is not very popular?

  4. Your suggestion of the Busytown Mysteries spinning wheel may be a little too sufisticated for our boys and girls in Washington. Maybe flipping a coin is more their speed.
