Harry Reid waist our tax money protecting him. They can not even drive proper in Las Vegas, gambling tilting the bottle and womanizing.

WoW so many wrecks in his family for some reason maybe like him Alzheimer’s driving? Falls down all the time can not function with out assistance off a stage or STUTTERS all the time trying to remember what to say?

Investing profiting millions off blood money in war arms that were used on Americans is a bad idea?

Final Score


Gameday 2012 # 8


Count's Krystal Bawl 

Nebraska 34
Michigan 27 

With friends like these...

By now you've heard about Richard Mourdock and his comments about abortion and rape, but for those who've just been awaking from a 24-hour slumber, here's the jist of what he said: at a debate in Indiana, Republican candidate Mourdock was asked his opinions on the issue of abortion, to which he basically said he was staunchly pro-life. If only he had left it at that....

Yeah, you heard that correctly: he said, and I quote: "The only exception I have to have an abortion is in the case is in the life of the mother. I struggled with it myself for a long time, but I came to realize that life is a gift from God. I think that even in the horrible situation of rape, that it is something that God intended to happen."

What he basically just said was that if a woman is brutally forced upon another man and said result is an unwanted pregnancy, then that's just something God planned for the victim. Our God is a loving, caring sociopath, isn't he?

Of course, any sensible person within the GOP would distance themselves away from such a despicable comment, but this is the the GOP: they welcome back their chauvinistic pigs running for office (see: the party backing Todd Akin despite his comments on "legitimate rape" and not knowing a damn thing about a woman's reproductive system) . Today, members of the Right, from Senate Minority Leader McConnell to former Presidential candidate John McCain have stood behind their candidate to replace Dick Lugar's Senate seat. Enter Mark Noonan and the aslyum known as Blogs for praising what Mourdock said last night.

Colin Powell Backs Obama, John McCain Loses It

The news story today:

Former Secretary of State Colin Powell endorsed President Barack Obama for a second term Thursday.
"You know, I voted for him in 2008 and I plan to stick with him in 2012, and I'll be voting for he and Vice President Joe Biden next month," he said on CBS' "This Morning."
Asked whether it was an endorsement, he said, "Yes."
Powell praised the president's handling of the economy and ending of the Iraq War.
"I think we ought to keep on the track we are on," he said.
Powell said he had the "utmost respect" for Mitt Romney, but criticized his tax plan.
He said Romney's foreign policy was a "moving target." "One day he has a certain strong view about staying in Afghanistan, but then on Monday night he agrees with the withdrawal. Same thing in Iraq. On every issue that was discussed on Monday night, Gov. Romney agreed with the president with some nuances. But this is quite a different set of foreign policy views than he had earlier in the campaign."
John McCain didn't take the news too well, telling Fox News that the decorated soldier/former member of the Joint Chiefs of Staff had tarnished his legacy by endorsing Obama.

Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) ripped Colin Powell for endorsing President Obama again, saying the former Secretary of State had “harmed” his legacy by doing so.
“General Powell, you disappoint us and you have harmed your legacy even further by defending what is clearly the most feckless foreign policy in my lifetime,” McCain said Thursday on the Kilmeade and Friends radio program. 
Really? This coming from the man who picked an unprepared nitwit as his running mate four years ago, and had the campaign devolve into dog-whistling politics the last leg of the race? Please, Senator, you have no leg to stand on here.

Another Member Of The Party Of Responsiblity Refuses To Take Any

Tom Swift commented 4 hours ago · Flag
Wow, I ask four questions and quote one example, no insults, no accusations, no assumption of motive or character; and this is the response? I get called a troll, denigrated, and to paraphrase a tool of the right. Hard to have a civil discussion here. To rephrase my questions in case it was not understood, how is a website that is open to comments responsible for the postings? A website has only three choices when posting a report or article. 1) No comments accepted. 2) Censor or ban the comments. 3) Accept all comments. My choice is either 1 or 3. If you open the site for comments you are obligated to accept all, good or bad. It seems no one likes free speech except their own.
To make blanket assumptions or make inferences about a website based on an individual’s comment is not intellectually honest. As a thought experiment, I could propose that the writer of that comment was of the “left” persuasion posting it to be used as proof of intolerance on the “right”, and it couldn’t be proven otherwise.
If you think a website should censor comments fine, but then don’t complain when comments you feel should be posted get cut.

Remembering James Bond. James Bond Omnibus Vol 4.

You can read my reviews for Volumes 1 2 and 3 by clicking on the prospective numbers

Two things struck me right away about the 4th volume of James Bond newspaper comic strips. 1. That it came out relatively quickly after volume 3. And 2. The model to me really looks like Ilia Calderon. This is not BTW a bad thing at all. Oddly enough you can make out her face much easier on the picture than you can when actually holding the book.

The 9 strips covered here originally were published in the Daily Express between 1971-1975. One thing about these strips that jumps out at your typical heterosexual reader is the amount of nudity they contain. The nudity is prevalent in all 9 strip. In fact it's quite amusing the way writer Jim Lawrence would plot these stories so it would be necessary to see some cleavage albeit of course penciled cartooned cleavage.

Unlike the other 3 volumes there is not one great strip here and although that may seem to be a negative statement it actually helps the overall feel of the book. Compare this to volume 3 for instance where the  Colonel Sun lay in the same volume with the Fear Face. The Brilliance of the first strip really brought out the substandardness is that a word? of Fear Face. Here in volume 4 every story is pretty much on the same level good but not great and that pretty much sums up the book as a whole. So quickly lets run through the strips:

Trouble Spot 1971: If you can get through the impossibility of a woman, even a blind woman, mistaking Bond for her husband and the shear luck of finding her through her only mark of identification he has to go on, a birth mark on her ass, in a nudist camp then this is really a solid strip. It's about on par with Star Fire and better than the 2 strips that came before that. ****/*****

Isle Of Condors 1972: It starts with a naked woman on horseback and then proceeds to a remote island where beautiful women are taught to be spies. All this and killer birds! *** 1/2 / *****

The League Of Vampires 1972: Women are being killed by a vampire cult which is all a ruse of a madman who wants to destroy his Father in law and then kill his wife. The ending as satisfactory violence oh and once again there's the nudity thing. *** 1/2 / *****

Die With My Boots On 1973: There has been a drug invented that makes one impervious to pain or as Bond say "grooves you out on cosmic highs" Ah the 70's. The mafia wants to get the stuff so they can set the price. This is a fairy lame strip and the title really doesn't fit at all what the story is about. *** / *****

The Girl Machine 1973: There has been a government overthrow in a Mideastern country and to make sure they please the new ruler of the country they offer him a present. A machine that plays porno movies, serves drinks, and shoots off perfume.   The new leader takes the machine but blows off the British's request for oil. Bond who was hiding in the machine escapes and helps put the old ruler, the new rulers nephew back in power. Yeah it's silly and not politcally correct in the slightest but it's a fun strip and one of the better strips in the book **** / *****

Beware Of Butterflies 1973: There's a new Attila who kidnaps Bond and brain washed him to kidnap Mehmet Istvan ( good name) a scientist  Bond's brainwashing never really takes affect and he spends the story half in and out of a daze. Bond kidnaps Istvan's female assistant which helps him get close to the Attila and provides him with a woman to sleep with at the end of the strip. (until the end they of course hate each other) Complex and fun. **** / *****

The Nevsky Nude 1974: A nude woman parachuting from the sky the return of King Arthur...and once again some hippies! hippies make everything better. Pretty silly strip *** / *****

The Phoenix Project 1974: Margo Arden a secretary is having horrible nightmares about a man dying my fire. It's part of a brain washing to destroy the scientist who has created the Phoenix suit which can with stand anything. The scientist who created the suit demonstrates the suit by wearing it himself and burns to death thanks to Margo Arden adding an unauthorized name to the list of journalist who were allowed to see the demonstration. Bond has to investigate. Straight forward strip and by now the plot lines start to run together. *** 1/2 / *****

The Black Ruby Caper 1975: Black nationalist! actually they're not the bad guys here. They're being used by Herr Rubin or Mr. Ruby. Bond is a dickhead in this story as he treats Mr. Ruby's girlfriend like awful. If this were a movie it would definitely be a Dalton film. Mr. Ruby is planning on putting a bomb in a sculpture that sculptor Roscoe Carver is making to give as a gift to the head of an African Country. For the second time in the comic strips the "Bond Woman"  is an African American. *** 1/2 / *****

Overall it can be said that Volume 4 contains neither a great nor a horrible strip in the 9 presented.
Trouble Spot and Girl Machine are probably the two best despite moments of silliness and a lack of plausibility in both (these are James Bond comic strips after all it's not like they're known for these things) and Die With My Boots on and Nevsky Nude are the two worst. Volume 4 pretty much stays on the same level though out good but not great. On the whole would I'd recommend it to Bond fan? Yeah it's a pretty good value for around the $15.the book cost. Not as good as Volume 2, not the highs and lows of volume 3. *** 3/4 / *****

You'd Better Believe Carol Is In Mitt's Binder

Carol Bowser commented on Megyn Kelly Helps Rehab Romney’s ‘Binders Full Of Women’ Comment 5 hours ago · Flag
Women at the Whitehouse make 77% of what men make and Obama is the “woman’s” choice?

I’d rather have Romney’s work flexibility than Obama’s Russia flexibility any day.

Let me state this for the record: that has to be the single-worst Chargers game I've ever seen. There are no words to even describe what just happened tonight, except the following: AJ Smith has to fire Norv Turner by the end of the Bye week. Then, once the season ends, Dean Spanos has to fire AJ, if he wants to get in the good graces of many Chargers fans come 2013.

Edit From The Count: I have never been a fan of Norval and quite frankly when they fired Marty and hired him it reminded me of when Nebraska fired Frank Solich and hired Bill Callahan. So whether or not he should be fired at the bye week? I don't know I'll go with Mr. Brown on that one. But one thing I do know. It was a meltdown. I mean it was a Michelle Malkin, Zell Miller on Hardball meltdown. How many turnovers did Rivers have in the second half? 20? Sometimes as fans we overstate things I can tell you as an outside observer this really was that bad. And the worst part if the whole thing? Having to hear Jon Gruden talk about the special feeling Peyton Manning gave him. Yes Jon Gruden really did say Peyton Manning gave him a "special feeling". And it wasn't like Manning really did all that much. The Chargers handed him and his Broncos this game on a silver platter, then tucked his napkin in his shirt for him and fed the win to him on a spoon.

The Count On Ms Dash

I think Stacey Dash is well entitled to vote for Mitt Romney with out taking any grief from anybody but why is this a story? I know for a damned fact, because I follow them, that celebrities on twitter who make left leaning statements also take untold amounts of grief for their tweets. The difference is they don't go crying to the media because A. they can handle it and B.  If you're a liberal the media doesn't care.  And for the record  just who the fuck is Stacey Dash

Let the the Skyfall/Song of the Night

In just under two hours, British soul singer Adele will drop the theme song to the new 007 flick, Skyfall, titled....well, "Skyfall". Fortunately, there's a 90-second teaser that's just been released, and all I can say is the following:


Don't just take my word for it - have a listen for yourself.

Late Edit:: Here's the full version of the song.

Also: (for anyone who cares): my take on the song and my general feelings on songs being used in film can be found here over at Mr. Brown Verses.
