not blood blood

I can see , Jay how you might not have seen it. It was deleted. But anyways…

President Obama’s spokesman cited the ambiguity of the statement, “there will be blood,” as he avoided condemning the remark made by a Michigan Democrat who opposes the imminent state’s right-to-work legislation.

“The president believes in debate that’s civil,” White House Press Secretary Jay Carney said today. “I haven’t seen those comments and I’m not sure that they mean what some would interpret them to mean. I just haven’t seen them.”…

    There would be quite a lot less blood if car companies could hire workers who cared about their jobs.

    After a brief stint at The Miami Herald , Carney joined Time magazine in 1989 for some OJT on spin and the art of creative editing. Then he was assigned to the Moscow Bureau, during which time the USSR disintegrated. Now he’s in Washington trying to assist in accomplishing a similar collapse there.

    Carney gets off writing about US presidents for some reason, apparently finding the aura of power pervading the Oval Office and Air Force One orgasmic. He has won awards for imaginative balderdash, inventive obfuscation, and inspired embellishment.

    As one of the earliest lamestream media self-professed “journalists” to take up blogging, he was heavily contaminated by left-wing twaddle merchants and harebrained conspiracy blatherers, exhibiting the talents which first caught the attention of Gaffemeister Joe Biden.

    Then in January 2011, Carney became Owebama’s second WH Press Secretary, succeeding Robert Gibbs, America’s answer to Baghdad Bob.

    He now meets with writers and coaches daily, often as many as five times a day, to memorize mantra and practice deflecting direct questions from genuine reporters who have snuk into the tent while he wasn’t looking.

    He and Barry share a few tokes, a laugh or two at the expense of leading Republicans, and agree on which topics he will lie about, which he will spin, and which he will ridicule. He is, of course, most aptly named to serve in the role of carnival barker for a rip-off booth at a county fair, or perhaps more fitting, one of those sleazy guys who hang around outside bars in red-light districts to convince customers to venture into dens of iniquity to be victimized by the oldest and second-oldest professions.

    Oh great. Now there’s breaking news that there’s a Mall-Shooting™ going on here in the Portland area. You folks are my witnesses that I wuz on the internets tubes at the time.

    Of course, if I had a gun in one hand and a smart phone in the other hand, we’d just call it ‘Multi-Tasking’!

    Whut? Too soon?

    The “person” in charge of the Michigan House Democrats tweeted something disturbing, then deleted it:

    Too late.

    Is that what Carney is blathering about, or a different threat by the left?

    Hog, the rule of thumb is that in any shooting, the first one on the phone to the PO-leece gets to be The Good Guy.

    Conveniently, de PO-leece is also union.

    Ed Carney = clairvoyent = “I haven`t heard the statement, but I am sure it did not mean what was said!” Me = “You suck and I mean what I said!”

    I’m not sure that they mean what some would interpret them to mean.

    Wow. Code within code within code.

    “I’m not sure” — ooo, get a broom. There’s aspersions and doubt cast all over the floor.

    “some” — name three, ya big chicken

    “interpret” — non-English-speakers?
    Teh Literally Illiterate?
    Situational ethics definitions?

    Hadda look up the code, Battle of the Overpass. Apparently the dodge is that in that instance, the unioners were those doing the bleeding. Yet more code…

    I have an idea.

    How about the white House Press Corps comes better prepared in future.

    Every time Carney starts this sort of shit up, they reach into their bags..

    … and pelt him with waffles!

    What do y’all think?

    Claire: Vodka+Tonic = Vodka+Tonic

    That’s all you need to know right now.

    Whiskey also works. I would recommend The Colonels’ choice of Evan James 1783, if you happen to have any handy. Otherwise, let ‘er fly.

    Does that count as a “dog whistle?”
    Oh, wait, that deserves a poster. Stay tuned.

    Yup, very much up to interpretation.
