Friday Late Nite Lite: Real late night…

Good Late Night!

I don’t know about y’all, but Wednesday just can’t come fast enough. I am so sick of this election and hope that once it is all over, I will never have to see Mitt’s face (and that smirk) ever again.

Anyway, its cartoon time!

  1. Hey, we won our final home game…31 to 0! Hope everyone is having a good night!

    Although Mitt Romney had provided plenty of inspiration for me this year, I also can’t wait for him to go away, and I’d happily stop writing about him. (I’ve actually looked, and something like 1 out of every 6 posts on my blog have “Mitt Romney” in the title). But for now… here is one more:

    • I think that one about Trump is funny too. But this one:

      9) Bought $5,000 worth of food and asked for it to be donated it to his supporters, so that they could donate it back to the campaign, so that campaign could donate it to Red Cross, thus effectively tripling the donation activity of the campaign.

      The truth of that one sucks! 😉

      It did indeed make the new in Ala, with some demented person commenting on a news station that NJ deserved what happened to it just like Nola did with Katrina. What that had to do with the (bogus) issue of unions is beyond me. She also didn’t mention what Alabama did to deserve the killer tornadoes they got in 2011. 🙄

      • Fredster, check this out:

        Confusion causes utility crew to return from recovery effort – CBS Atlanta 46

        The six-man crew staged in Virginia, but Decatur Utilities said they were never able to get in touch with officials or utility companies in New York or New Jersey. While the crew stood down in Virginia, Decatur Utilities officials claimed they received a union contract they thought they would have to agree to before helping storm victims.

        General Manager Ray Hardin appeared on Fox Business Channel Friday morning saying, “We were presented documents from IBEW that required our folks to affiliate with the unions and that was something we could not agree to.”

        Decatur Utilities later released a statement expanding on that, “Upon arriving at a staging area in Virginia, crews were held in place pending clarification of documents received from IBEW that implied a requirement of our employees to agree to union affiliation while working in the New York and New Jersey areas. It was and remains our understanding that agreeing to those requirements was a condition of being allowed to work in those areas.”

        Late Friday at a press conference, Hardin said the documents actually came from Electric Cities of Alabama, a coalition of the state’s municipally owned utilities.

        Bottom line, it appears now that Decatur Utilities wrongly assumed they would have to agree to the union contract before traveling to New Jersey to help with recovery efforts. The IBEW said in times of crisis, help is welcomed from union and non-union utility workers.

        Hardin said as they waited for confirmation on the documents, crews received word that Seaside Heights had received the assistance they needed from other sources.

        “At this stage, it is not clear who is alleged to have turned the crew away and the company that employs the affected workers has denied the claim,” said IBEW President Ed Hill in a statement. “IBEW local leaders in New Jersey have reiterated what has been the long standing record of our union – in times of crisis all help is welcome and we pull together with everyone to meet the needs of the public. We have communicated this to the office of New Jersey Governor Christie as well.”

        The crew from Decatur Utilities attempted to look for work in other areas, but Hardin said based on the uncertainty of other union requirements, they made the decision to return home after being stalled in Virginia most of the day Thursday.

        Of course, there are many crews from Alabama helping in all the states that have been affected by Sandy. I would not guess that Fox will report any updates to the story. That the “union” documents in question came from the Alabama’s own company.

    Monday campaigning. TGIt’s almost over.

    Slate: Jay-Z, Springsteen To Flank Obama on Monday; Mitt Romney Gets Kid Rock

    As they make their closing arguments, Barack Obama and Mitt Romney have revealed their campaign itinerary for election eve Monday, and both will be joined by high-wattage musicians who have flanked their candidacies. In Obama’s case, that means Jay-Z and Bruce Springsteen. In Romney’s case, that means… Kid Rock.

    Obama will move around the Midwest with Springsteen and eventually Jay-Z before meeting up with Michelle Obama in Des Moines, Iowa, where the president got his first jolt of energy in the 2008 caucuses. Romney will also have a day packed with swing-state visits before traveling to New Hampshire, where he will meet Ann Romney and Kid Rock. The singer’s “Born Free” has been a staple at Romney events.

    On Election Day, Obama will return to Chicago and Romney will head to Boston, their respective campaign headquarters, to await election results.

    That the national press doesn’t really cover Bill Clinton’s appearances is a freaking disgrace. Great story from Dave Weigel.

    Slate: The Closer

    The former president is in Ohio to seal the deal. His message: The people who trusted him should love Obama even more.

    This rips the hide off white men and deservedly so!

    TPM: Bad News for Romney in New NBC Polls

    NBC/Marist is out with two new polls show Mitt Romney in a tough position going into election day.

    Ohio: Obama 51%, Romney 45%
    Florida: Obama 49%, Romney 47%

    These numbers are broadly in line with recent polls, though the Florida numbers have been a bit more all over the map. Earlier this evening Mason-Dixon reported Romney 51%, Obama 45% in Florida.

    But in terms of the big picture, Florida doesn’t have to matter. Obama can lose Florida and still win handily. Romney needs to win Florida, Ohio and probably a couple other states to win.

    Roger Simon: ‘Swift-Boating’ of Obama fails

    Obama should have been destroyed by now. That was the plan.

    He was going to be “Swift Boated” in this election, just like John Kerry was in 2004.

    It would be about Benghazi, where on Sept. 11 of this year, U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other Americans were killed. This would be the spear point that would fatally wound the Obama campaign.

    It would be a classic smear: The Obama administration had delivered a “stand down” order to potential rescuers, and so the four Americans had died.

    Why would any agency or anybody in the administration do such a thing? It didn’t matter. Wingnuts can always find motives. There are still people who say Bill Clinton murdered Vince Foster. Whole books have been written about that one.

    This is a bit unexpected.

    Salon: Elie Wiesel to write book with Barack Obama

    In an interview published today with the Israeli newspaper Haaretz, Nobel Laureate Elie Wiesel, who just turned 84, reveals that “[President Barack] Obama and I decided to write a book together, a book of two friends.” Haaretz describes their friendship:
