Having Fun with Political Prognosticators and More

Yesterday, a certain Boy had a lot of commenting fun over at Ace's place, stay tuned for the details.

The Great Gibson Guitar Grab gets curiouser and curiouser. It seems that somebody named Michelle Obama gave somebody else named Carla Bruni-Sarkozy a gift: a Gibson Hummingbird acoustic guitar. And you'll never guess what the fretboard is made from. Go on, guess. OK, it's made from rosewood, the same wood that the Gibson company thinks is responsible for the armed raid by federal agents last week. They think that's why the company was raided, but they really don't know since all the feds' paperwork has been sealed and details are not forthcoming from the administration.

And another thing, the Lacey Act is a violation of something called the Constitution. It stipulates that you are guilty unless you can prove your innocence. Read the whole thing.

It seems that there's a new, warm and fuzzy name for the federales in Washington, the "Federal Family." Doubtless it includes Big Brother. Someone should tell Obama that Orwell's book 1984 wasn't  supposed to be a documentary or an instruction manual.

Now, this is the type of mash-up I like, Hayek and Julianne Hough. Pulchritude and economics, together at last.

And now for the main event. Ace posted this yesterday in which a dude outlines 13 keys to a presidential victory and then claims that Obama will win because he has 9 of them.

Here's the list of the alleged winning keys...

1. No contested primary

2. Incumbency

3. No third-party candidate

4. Major domestic-policy changes in his first term

5. No social unrest

6. No major scandals

7. No major foreign-policy failures

8. Major foreign-policy achievements in his first term (killing Bin Laden)

9. Little charisma by his likely opponent
We Morons couldn't help but notice that the author left out a few key decisors that the present president has such as,
10. Mastery of helicopter doors.
11. Proven expertise in the operation of umbrellas.
12. Mad baseball pitching skillz.

13. Astronomically high bowling average.

14. A superior command of English.

There are more, many more, but don't click the link if you're easily offended by language that would make a sailor blush. Also, make sure that you don't have any liquids of any kind in your mouth, as they will follow the path of least resistance when expelled, which is out through your nose.
You've been warned.
