Overnight Open Thread (27 Oct 2012)

You know, you'd think someone with 43 Czars would actually have accomplished something over 4 years to run on. Well maybe not when you read some of the titles.

If you are wondering what a czar does, you are not alone. Rather than try to explain the elusive term, I will simply list the czars currently on the White House payroll. In alphabetical order President Obama’s czars as of this writing are: Afghanistan/Pakistan Czar, AIDS Czar, Bailout Czar, Border Czar, Car Czar, Cyber Security Czar, Copyright Czar, Climate Czar, Central Region Czar, Disinformation Czar, Domestic Violence Women Czar, Drug Czar, Education Czar, Economy Czar, Energy and Environmental Czar, Export Czar, Government Performance Czar, Faith-Based Czar, Health Czar, Health Insurance Czar, Homeland Security Czar, Great Lakes Czar, Green Jobs Czar, Guantanamo Closure Czar, Information Czar, Intelligence Czar, Labor Czar, Middle East Peace Czar, Pay Czar, Regulatory Czar, Safe Schools Czar, Science Czar, Stimulus Accountability Czar, Sudan Czar, TARP Czar, Technology Czar, Terrorism Czar, Tobacco Czar, Urban Czar, War Czar, Water Czar, Weapons Czar, and Weapons of Mass Destruction Czar. In addition to these existing positions, several new czars are under consideration including: Zoning Czar, Student Loan Czar, Voter List Czar, Radio-Internet Fairness Czar, Mortgage Czar, Land-Use Czar, and Income Redistribution Czar.

With Benghazi, sounds like the Disinformation Czar has been a little busy but WTF has the Guantanamo Closure Czar exactly been doin'? Did we ever hear from the Weapons Czar in regard to Fast & Furious? Did the Copyright Czar get permission from Putin for that recent ad they ran that ripped off a Putin ad? I'm surprised there isn't a Contraceptive Czar or Big Bird Czar.
Now you know what you're spending $2 billion a year on in support of the President besides his frequent flier miles.

Pumpkin Carvin'

With a pistol. I tried it with a shotgun. Came out much different. Somewhat splodey.

Now, if doing it with a gun isn't your thang, perhaps some of these designs might tickle your fancy. Pumpkins by Villafane Studio.

Veteran Health Care

If you like your current health care, you can NOT keep it evidently. Pentagon Waits To Tell Vets They May Lose Prime Health Care Coverage. How convenient to wait until after the election. If you are a vet and vote Democrat, you are an idiot.

Military Stuff

Pretty successful Multiple Engagement Missile Defense Test. 4 out of 5 isn't too shabby, especially as it was a simultaneous test, not just a 1 v 1.

Hmmm. Lasers. On ships. Navy Will Get Lasers In 2 Years. I'm skeptical but down with it if it comes to fruition AND works as advertised.

The Navy used a laser-machine gun combination to shoot down shoot down robotic aircraft during Pacific Ocean tests in 2010. To the disappointment of "Star Wars" fans, the lasers did their destruction as invisible beams rather than as green or red laser pulses.

Explodey Video

Bruce Willis destroying shit.

Obama and AGW

Obama 'Surprised' Climate Change Didn't Surface At The Debates. Um, maybe because the majority of the country isn't buying into that BS and there is this thing called the economy that is on everyone's mind. His concern over something that is very much in doubt and not predicted to really happen in force for decades is ironic given how close the fiscal cliff is and how crappy the economy is. Priorities man, priorities.

Hurricane Sandy

The musical. I keed, I keed!

Cell Phone Weaponization

Hmmm. Pepper Spray Incorporated Into Cell Phone Case. Be alert when they say I want to take your picture after you use your pickup line at the bar.

Kitteh Video

Kitten vs Doberman.
