Lena or Katee need to take home the statue! Megan Fox cannot act her way out of a wet paper bag although I'm sure she would look great wearing one...

How did Fox even get INTO this category with Lena and Katee? ugh!

Late September vote: A party divided against itself: House Dems insist Public Option will remain in their bill….

And we all know that in Committee they will ram that public option in there regardless of what comes from the Senate.

The way the Dem leadership is damaging the party (and their own majority) by gnawing off it’s own limb which is caught in a trap of Rahm’s making (moderate Dems elected in McCain winning districts, the kind who actually LISTEN to their constituents and the Senate which is more shall we say temperate in its makeup) reminds me of a scene in Evil Dead II…of course a lot of things remind me of a scene in Evil Dead II cuz I’m that kind of girl, lol….

So after the Dems lose the majority in the House in 2010 (assuming they ram this thing through like cap and trade) does anyone else expect Obama to rip off his mask to show Jimmy Carter and yell out maniacally, “So who’s laughing now?” as the gavel is ripped from Nancy’s hand and Boehner is installed as Speaker? yep…

So in true Pelosi Cabal of Dunces form, the House is bitterly clinging to the public option the majority of the public DOES NOT WANT..in a plan the public WOULD RATHER SEE DIE THAN GET PASSED....

Fine Nancy, you guys cling to that while I cling to my Constitution, let’s see how it all shakes out in 2010…I am betting on the American people to ‘learn you something’ since your elitist friends just reflect your own class prejudices back at you as you flit to and fro in the bubble that insulates you from Real America…./rant off…

House Democratic officials say a public option will remain in their version of a health reform bill, even now that the White House has acknowledged it may be dropped later.

“This is just for the Senate,” a House leadership official said about the administration’s concession on a public option. “There is no way it passes the House the first time around without a public option.

“The liberals (around 100+) won’t allow it. It if comes back from conference committee without public option and there is the right pitch that it is this or nothing, then it may pass the House.”

Leaders now say the House will put off a vote on health reform until the end of September — to provide a cooling-off period from the raucous town meetings and to give strategists a better sense of where the Senate is headed.

At a time when POLLS ARE TURNING AGAINST DEMS.

…The GOP now holds a six-point lead on the top issue of the economy, an advantage that has changed little over the past four months.

Health care is not the only issue which the Republicans are enjoying a first-time lead. Voters now trust the GOP more than Democrats on the issue of education, 41% to 38%. This is also the first time in over two years the Republicans have held an advantage on that issue. Democrats led Republicans on education by three points in July and seven points in June.

Republicans lead Democrats on Social Security for the second straight month, this time by a 43% to 39% margin. Social Security is another issue where Democrats have enjoyed consistent leads in recent years.

The GOP maintains a strong 51% to 35% lead on taxes, after holding the same lead in July. Republicans have been trusted more by voters on the issue of taxes in every poll conducted since February.

Recent polling shows that 54% of U.S. voters say tax cuts for the middle class are more important than new spending for health care reform, even as the president’s top economic advisers signal that tax hikes may be necessary to fund the plan. But 76% say it is likely taxes will have to be raised on the middle class to cover the cost of health care reform….

And who, who, who can be to blame for this turn of events?!?

…The White House said the media frenzy was prompted partly by bored reporters who haven’t been paying attention to what the administration has been saying for weeks.

Yes, if only the WH had the media on their side, THEN they would be able to get this done. Are these people even on the same planet with the rest of us or what???

Meanwhile, the GOP is slowly putting itself back together as regular American joes and ginas organize for the late September vote and for the 2010 midterms…GROOVY!

Horror Fan Fave: My Name Is Bruce – Review

Vodpod videos no longer available.

Review from BlackTequilaKiss:

..You don’t know fear, kid. You’ve never worked with Sam Raimi.’, this is pure Cheese gold. Now y’all know I love my Bruce and I went into this unsure wherever it would be to my taste. Oh it was. This was a joy from beginning to end. Able to mock itself and not take anything seriously it was either laugh out loud funny or even rather tender…

Review by Cinemassacre:

…”Bruce Campbell is the greatest actor of his generation!”, never have truer words been said and it was a laugh out loud moment that still stands strong now.

The plotline goes as such: B Movie legend, Bruce Campbell is mistaken for his character Ash from the Evil Dead trilogy by a devoted fan. Fearing for his town’s safety, the fan kidnaps Bruce and forces him into a position where he must fight a real life monster in the small town of Gold Lick.

poster_mynameisbruce-1

To love this movie you really do have to love Campbell as the whole film is hinged more so on his performance. For my money? I love the guy. Playing the B Movie cheese to top draw, he acts the part well in a movie and is a fantastic send up of himself. Only ever Bruce.

It is satirical, over the top and even a lil creepy in parts. My Name is Bruce is pure golden and a movie worth the time and effort.

Ted Raimi stars with Bruce:

..Firstly Ted Raimi as Mills Toddner / Wing / Sign Painter- Three different characters and one guy playing every role. This man is insane! He was fantastic as Mills, Bruce’s agent, and credit where it is due he played the other roles just as well. It was quite fantastic when Guan-di (the monster) takes out the sign painter he plays. But to play three separate roles is an achievement, kudos to Ted for that!…

If  you are an Evil Dead fan sounds like a good couple of hours, I’ve read Bruce’s books and loved them and will definitely be checking this out:

..In terms of gore it really is minimal and of course insane! Heads chopped off. Heads split in half. You can’t make this stuff up! Considering this is a made for Bruce movie for Bruce lovers, the gore is going to as silly as ever and it is but it does look beautiful, just beautiful.

I really have nothing left to say. This is a movie for Bruce Campbell lovers. If you don’t love him you will not like this and the humour will be lost on you. If you haven’t watched many films of his, the concept will seem hacked and stupid which to be honest it is but with Campbell it works all kinds of good…
