Barney Frank To Retire From House -- Seeking Syracuse BBall Coaching Spot?

Frank Demonstrates his
Basketball Dribbling Technique

Barney Frank, the longtime Massachusetts Democrat and first openly gay Member of Congress announced today that he will retire from Congress at the end of his current term.

Frank made national news in the mid-80s when he was censured by the full Congress for sharing his home with a gay man who ran a homosexual prostitution ring from his basement.

 -- Is Barney Frank After His Seat?

He was also the co-author of the Dodd-Frank financial regulatory bill that is widely believed to have caused the national housing crisis by encouraging sub-prime home loans.

Meanwhile, word comes that longtime assistant Syracuse Basketball coach, Bernie Fine, will also be retiring from his current gig albeit involuntarily. Fine has been implicated in a series of homosexual attacks on pre-teens who he had hired to be "ball boys" for the Syracuse athletic program.

This synchonicity of events moved WLS radio's resident wag and former WFLD-TV sports reporter, Bruce Wolf this morning to question aloud whether Barney's true motivation for leaving Congress was so as to be freed up to seek Mr. Fine's vacated position at Syracuse.

Word is that Mr. Frank is telling anyone who will listen that he is a long-time and ardent follower of the Boston Celtics, has been an enthusiastic friend and mentor to a variety of young men and as such would be well suited for the Syracuse assistant coaching spot.

Michelle Obama Big Butt Theme Music By Sir Mix-a-lot

Should Sir Mix-A-Lot's "I Like Big Butts"
 be Michelle Obama's campaign anthem?

When Presidential aspirant, Cong. Michelle Bachmann was introduced on Jimmy Fallon's NBC Late show Monday, Fallon’s house band, the Roots, played as intro music, Fishbone’s song "‘Lyin’ Ass Bitch."

Needless to say, If Michelle Obama or Hillary Clinton had been so treated by NBC, there would have been howls of protest from feminists and other lefties. There would have been calls for wholesale dismissals of those involved.

But to date, we've heard only a tongue-in-cheek quasi apologia from O'Fallon and NBC has been totally mum.

Today Rush Limbaugh wondered aloud what would have transpired if Michelle Obama had been greeted on stage somewhere with a background rendition of Sir Mix-a-Lot's 1992 rap song, "I like Big Butts."

Limbaugh played excerpts but  below I have put a video of the whole thing. Should "I Like Big Butts," be Michelle Obama's 2012 campaign theme?

Journalism Northwestern Style: What, Where, When, Race (Censored)

Militantly Colorblind
 NU Infobabe Susan Du

There they go again. I'm talking about the babes who run Northwestern University's Daily Northwestern -- the Big-10's only all-girl student newspaper.

It seems like these Medill journalism acolytes are devoted to reporting all the news, all the time, except when the criminal miscreants preying on Northwestern students happen to be black.

That little tidbit of information goes right down the NU Orwellian memory hole.

In last Monday's edition, on page 2, crack Daily Northwestern news sleuth, Susan Du, apprised the student body of the latest criminal assault on an NU student by the local toughs who populate the "other: Evanston.

"A Northwestern student standing on the porch of his apartment was robbed early Sunday morning... At approximately 1:20 a.m., four male teenagers walking on the 2000 block of Ridge Avenue...grabbed the student's smart phone and fled westbound on Leon Place, the student told officers. Evanston and University Police were unable to locate the four teenagers, described as 16 to 17 years old and ranging from 5'7" to 5'10" tall.

The student could not offer a more detailed description of the teens, according to the notification."

HMMM. What's wrong with this picture?
Evanston Youths of Indeterminate Race

How about the race of the assailants? Does the erudite Ms. Du mean to suggest to us that the victim was capable of reporting the precise heights and age range of these latest assailants yet was incapable of distinguishing the fact that they were, in fact, black?

This comes on the heels of a September 26th report in the Daily Northwestern about a white student who was pistol-whipped and robbed near campus, when they likewise neglected to report that the assailants were black.

So NU students, go ahead and live in your little Daily Northwestern induced PC fantasyland, if you like. As for me, I'm walking down another street when I see a gang of 4 black Evanston "youths" approaching.

And maybe also putting my hand around the grip of my concealed firearm.
