Snowmobile vs snowmobile


Chances are, you have a mental image of what a snowmobile looks like.

And then there’s this:

Via, the Wizard of WOZ, and also found here and here.

Question is: Who the hell made this? Anyone know?

Regardless, at least someone took advantage of the deep freeze.

UPDATE

Electric blue Chitty-Chitty Bang-Bang on sleds?

Na, time to crash.

G’day USA


Aussie fashion and creativity is being showcased over in the US. Leading the charge is ambassador-of-sorts, Jennifer Hawkins.




Even if Coakley loses, Dems may still pass Obamacare


In a previous post, it was explained that the Democrats need 60 Senate votes to pass Obamacare, but if they lose a special election in Massachusetts on Tuesday, and there are growing signs they may well, then they’ll come up one short. But now they’re coming out and saying they’ll only need 51 votes by using a process called reconcilliation.

WTF?

The bloke saying it is Van Hollen, who also mentioned the following:

“Why would you hand the keys to the car back to the same guys whose policies drove the economy into the ditch and then walked away from the scene of the accident?” Van Hollen said. “For the Republicans to say vote for us and bring back the guys who got us into this mess in the first place, I don’t think it’s a winner.”

The Republicans stuffed the economy back before the election?

Oh really?

UPDATE

The unions won’t have to pay Obama’s mega health tax for almost a decade.

Meanwhile, back on Friday, Democrat big guy, Barney Frank said, “If Scott Brown wins, it’ll kill the health bill.

But that was Friday, and Van Hollen came out with his garbage today.

Regardless, Obi still has the jitters, and is travelling to Massachusetts (I love spell check) on (US) Sunday to wield his purple prose on the blue-come-green state.

H/T Drudge.

UPDATE II

Stay classy Democrats:

New York Sen. Charles Schumer, who famously hammered then-Sen. Alfonse D’Amato for calling him a “putz-head” in their hot 1998 campaign, was accused Thursday of stepping into the gutter himself after he sent out a fundraising e-mail in which he called Massachusetts Republican Senate candidate Scott Brown a “far-right tea-bagger.”

The two-term Democrat, in accusing Brown of being aligned with the conservative “tea party” movement, used a term that every tea party critic knows refers to a sexual act.

UPDATE

Barney Frank has ruled out any reconcilliation process. Good… didn’t expect that.
