First class, sitting next to Vanna White

Speaking of conservatives 80s icons:

Anyone want to take a guess? Is it that the ecoterrorists hurt blahs here by slowing economic growth here or hurt blahs in other countries by slowing economic growth there or is this REVERSE RACISM where white people are hurt by the ecoterrorists somehow?

    I’m going to guess it has something to do with President Obama’s recent climate change statements, and Sajak is a too much of a chicken shit to just come out and link the two. Obama hates white people, and believes in climate change, therefor, climate change believers are racists. I don’t speak nut bag, but that’s my best guest at Sajak logic.

    They have written into the law – to exclude urban areas.

    I’d advise reading the “Ricochet” blog or at least the un-paywalled part. It’s a good source of Conservatives Letting Their Pants Down, and a good chunk of its writers like James Lileks are National Review regulars. Pat Sajak is a frequent contributer, and “Cheers” producer Rob Long is one of the editors.
    And yes, it’s nauseating.

    I don’t speak wingnut, but when I saw this quotation, my hypothesis was that if you believe in climate change, you’re just trying to limit economic growth in China and India, hence you’re a racist. But maybe that makes too much sense.

    Now you know why Sajak failed at having a late night show-and now can be laughed and mocked with impunity.

    House GOP releases ag budget
    By DAVID ROGERS | 5/19/14 11:39 AM EDT

    ……………
    In the case of nutrition programs, the House bill seeks to open the door for starchy, white potatoes to be added to the list of qualified vegetables under the WIC supplemental feeding program for pregnant women and their young children. The Agriculture Department would also be required to establish a waiver process for local school districts which have found it too costly to comply with tougher nutrition standards for school lunch and breakfast programs.

    And in a surprising twist, the bill language specifies that only rural areas are to benefit in the future from funding requested by the administration this year to continue a modest summer demonstration program to help children from low-income households — both urban and rural — during those months when school meals are not available.

    Since 2010, the program has operated from an initial appropriation of $85 million, and the goal has been to test alternative approaches to distribute aid when schools are not in session. The White House asked for an additional $30 million to continue the effort, but the House bill provides $27 million for what’s described as an entirely new pilot program focused on rural areas only.

    When you get right down to it, Pat Sajak’s reason to get up in the morning is to point at a woman who claps and give away someone else’s dining room furniture. No wonder he’s such a bitter little man.

    There was a rather quaint earnestness to Per On jobless benefits, ‘I’m worried’
    05/20/14 12:42 PM
    By Steve Benen

    A couple of weeks ago, Labor Secretary Thomas Perez sent a fairly detailed letter to House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio), suggesting a dialog on extended federal unemployment benefits. “You have indicated that [Emergency Unemployment Compensation] should only be extended in combination with job-creation measures, but EUC is itself an effective job creation tool,” Perez explained.

    There was a rather quaint earnestness to Perez’s appeal – the Labor Secretary seems to believe there’s a policy dispute that can be resolved by information and an exchange of ideas.

    Alas, there’s ample evidence to the contrary. The Speaker’s office quickly dismissed Perez’s letter, saying it didn’t include a new plan for creating jobs. What about the fact that an extension would itself create jobs? Boehner’s aides brushed that aside.

    The issue seems to have largely faded from front pages, but it’s been nearly six months since congressional Republicans cut off unemployment benefits for roughly 1.3 million Americans – a number that climbs by about 72,000 people every week. It’s also been nearly two months since the Senate approved a bipartisan compromise to extend the jobless aid.

    Where do things stand now? Pretty much nowhere (via Laura Clawson).ez’s appeal – the Labor Secretary seems to believe there’s a policy dispute that can be resolved by information and an exchange of ideas.

    Racism was probably thrown in because it’s a useful all-purpose smear. I’m really surprised the term “child molester” wasn’t used. That’s even more inflammatory, and even harder to prove, so it’s an ideal McCarthy-style piece of character assassination to use.
