The GLoP-sters (that’s Jonah Goldberg, Rob Long, and John Podhoretz) ruminate on the mad bomber, John’s daughter’s racy Bat Mitzvah Torah portion, the surprising second life success of Tim Allen’s Last Man Standing, caravans, and Halloween (the movie, not the holiday).

    Is it just me or is the accompanying picture vaguely obscene? Like a Georgia O’Keeffe in meat…

    She was a fast machine
    She kept her motor clean
    She was the best damn woman I had ever seen
    She had the sightless eyes
    Telling me no lies
    Knockin’ me out with those American thighs

    Have you listened to the show? Of course it’s vaguely obscene.

    There is no reason why the Republican challenger should be doing well in NJ? Like other than the incumbent had a corruption trail, and is known to have used child prostitutes? I think thats a pretty good reason for an incumbent of any party to loose an election.

    @blueyeti, I think you missed a bleep in the middle somewhere before the Casper slot where Jonah used an impolite phrase for anilingus referring to something or another he didn’t like.

    I looked for it, but couldnt find it. I heard it the first time… The Casper Ad starts at about 49 minutes in.

    This is by far, the funniest GLoP podcast ever.

    @roblong : try “Prince Of Darkness,” by John Carpenter.

    Or, for non-John Carpenter, there’s “The Thing That Couldn’t Die,” which scared the Mainstream Media out of me when I was a kid.

    A few weeks ago, our sermon was built around Mark 10. Verse 13 sounds different to modern ears.

     “And they were bringing children to him that he might touch them, and the disciples rebuked them.”
    ‭‭Mark‬ ‭10:13‬ ‭ESV‬‬

    Jonah,

    Please issue a CD of your book! Audiobooks is fine, but I prefer a CD that I can hold in my hand!

    So, I had to look up the scripture and found this (ahem) nugget: Our custom is to swear on a Bible; the Hebrew custom was to swear on circumcision, the mark of God’s covenant. The idea of swearing on one’s loins is found in other cultures, as well. The English word testify is directly related to the word testicles.

    Funny that. I would think dudes would lie (or at least heavily embellish) stuff related to their gonads.

    Milton Berle and Forrest Tucker might be the exception.

    Dave Chapelle on fried chicken (referenced about 45:00) 

    (Warning: swears throughout)

    Also nice because his “white guy voice” is remarkably close to Obama’s Important Smart Speech voice.

    I’m not sure what John was talking about in the NJ Senate race at the end… not a single poll has Hugin tied with Menendez. The closest he gets is 2 points, in an Hugin internal poll (so you know how reliable that’s going to be). All of the other polls have Menendez with a 5-11 point lead.

    It’s not insurmountable, if Democrats have a highly disappointing night overall, but it’s not very likely.

    If any blue state democrats are vulnerable, this should be the guy. The RNC should be pounding Bob with both regional and national advertising. Anchor every single democrat incumbent to Bob Menendez and force them all to take a hit for his ‘crimes’. Just like democrats do when the find an idiot republican like Tod Akin.

    While this is mostly true (Tina Smith in Minnesota is slightly more vulnerable, but Minnesota is also only barely blue), we shouldn’t delude ourselves as to our chances. 538 has Hugin at only a 1 in 10 chance of pulling off the upset – and with not a single poll showing him in the lead, I’d say that’s generous.

    New Jersey must be as crazy as I’ve always heard, in movies and TV shows and elsewhere, for Menendez to be re-elected.

     Let’s just reflect on how many times Massachusetts reelected Teddy Kennedy.

     Democratic voters are like that. After Congressmen Jerry Stubbs was caught diddling a 16-year-old boy page, he was reelected several times. This puzzled even media liberals. When they asked his constituents why they voted for him anyway, they responded, “Well, he brings home the bacon!“

     In New Jersey, the Democratic Party has a lot of minority voters looking to vote for somebody who will bring home the bacon, or for whomever their “community leaders” recommend, and who are only vaguely aware of the scandals surrounding Menendez.

     From a conservative standpoint, this is not entirely a tragedy. The Cuban-American Menendez is a moderate by Democrat standards.

    And let’s not forget that Republicans elected Donald Trump. :)

    And a strong supporter of Israel, one of the few remaining in that party. We could do a lot worse.
