Light bulbs and moose farts

Mayor Nickels launched his “Save Santa” campaign, which included the handing out of lots of energy efficient light bulbs the day after Thanksgiving.

The Washington Policy Center made some claims to counter Nickels. They cite “moose farts” as a great threat to the environment. Yeah, “moose farts.”

That reminded me of one of my favorite Ronald Reagan lines:

“Trees cause more pollution than automobiles do.”

Fascinating. Not to be outdone, civic ass-pimple Ken Schram decided to give the Mayor an award of his own. A Shrammie:

So, for seizing the moment to mesmerize yourself with the sound of your own voice; for verbally wagging a political finger at some folks who were just looking to get into the Christmas spirit and for conjuring up the inane idea that you should lead the charge to save Santa by handing out energy efficient light bulbs, take a bow Mayor Nickels, because this “Schrammie” is for you.

Ken Schram tries to work in a reference to “secularism gone wild” whenever he can because, well, that’s all he’s got. I don’t think the Mayor should take it too hard, since getting a Schrammie means, at the very least, that you’re not Ken Schram.

That said, did you know that the “Full of Shit” Schram is supposed to be the liberal counterbalance of John Carlson’s new show, “The Commentators”? With friends like The Schramster, who needs enemas?

    1 Yeah…I guess it’s up to the rest of us here to keep him occupied so he doesn’t try to screw anything more significant than….light bulbs.

    Actual theocracy alert:
    You thought 40 lashes for naming a teddy bear Mohammed was bad (yah, she won’t receive that thank goodness but it loomed), I heard a former muslim discuss what it was like when she attended a U.S. mosque when she first came to this country in the last decade. They talked about how they would have lots of babies, convert as many to Islam as can, and then ultimately vote to replace the Constitution with Sharia Law (so you too can receive 40 lashes for naming a bear). This is for real, folks. Don’t laugh it off. They are serious. We must be, as well. This ex-muslim woman heard what they have in mind and is trying to warn the rest of us.

    So, did any of your half wits actually hear what your moonbat Mayor said to the kids? He told them that Santa and the reindeer are going to drown if we dont start using compact light bulbs.

    He’s an idiot.

    And the kiddies werent even remotely impressed.

    Apollo @ 4
    What is it like to live your life in utter fear at all times? Do you sleep with a gun on your nightstand? Is your gut churning even when you wake from a poor night’s sleep? Is your neck sore from constantly having to turn to see who might be following you? I’d like to know. I feel sorry for you.

    4 Sadly, there seem to be plenty of hardcore dominionist “Christians” who’d like to do the same thing.

    I’ll tell y’all something….I sincerely regret not voting for Mark Sidran. Remember when we were all afraid he was the one who was going to close up all the nightclubs?

    I actually like Ken Schram, but I’ve always found it funny that he’s presented as the “liberal” counterpart to John Carlson (“Mr. Blue” as the commercials call him) — as if he’s as far to the left as Carlson is to the right. Schram strikes me as independent, a bit libertarian, liberal-leaning on many social issues, but hardly a die-hard, card-carrying liberal. His opinions aren’t always predictable, which makes him more interesting to listen to.

    Yep! “Full of Shit” Schram is about as believable as “Full of Shit” Goldy! They are both NeoProgs trying to spew leftist boloney!

    To the stupid troll dog that laughs at anything:

    The ability to distiguish between real and imagined threats is the difference between sanity and paranoia.

    The chance of dying by terrorist threat (foreign or domestic – and by the way domestic is higher) is very, very low.

    The likelihood of global warming induced catastrophic death is definitely increasing – just ask the insurance companies who are revising their rates for low lying coastal area residences…

    Here’s what Washington Policy Center said:

    “According to the Norwegian newspaper Aftenposten, the methane (a powerful greenhouse gas) released from one moose each year can equal the carbon footprint of a car traveling more than 8,000 miles.”

    In response to which I would ask 2 questions:

    1) How many cars does Seattle have?
    2) How many mooose does Seattle have?

    @10 Schram is a “NeoProg”? That’s news to me. I pegged him for rightwing-lite.

    17 “A commie”???? Huh? Oh, yeah…those were the folks we were supposed to be all afraid of back in the last century, before the invention of “islamo-fascists”.

    will…trees actually do produce more ‘pollution’ than cars. it’s a fact. so before you start screaming…maybe you should look up the definition of pollution.particulate matter etc.
    BTW….you are surprised that your mayor is an idiot?

    me@10……i prefer to call them PROGLODYTES.
    good definition of the so called progressives. def.: ” 2 : a person characterized by reclusive habits or outmoded or reactionary attitudes ”

    ‘reactionary’ has to be the understatement of the century.
