Flagged as ‘Fishy!’ by the White House


With a blog entry on the official White House blog, the health care fascists have been given marching orders to report those of us who question the president’s plan to reform health care as “fishy.”

Marcon Phillips writes in a post titled, “Facts Are Stubborn Things:”

There is a lot of disinformation about health insurance reform out there, spanning from control of personal finances to end of life care.  These rumors often travel just below the surface via chain emails or through casual conversation.  Since we can’t keep track of all of them here at the White House, we’re asking for your help. If you get an email or see something on the web about health insurance reform that seems fishy, send it to flag@whitehouse.gov.

While we decidedly are not fishy (we shower, after all), getting flagged by the White House is something we should be proud of.

So I whipped up some quick badges for folks to use on their blogs, Web sites, e-mails, social networks, etc. to brag about how “fishy” we really are.

Take ’em. Use ’em. Heck, even report them to the White House.

There’s five sizes for your malodorous pleasure:

468 x 60:

300 x 250:

New ‘flag me’ badges with fishy links

The White House, realizing the whole flag@whitehouse.gov scheme was fishy in its own right, has shut it down. So the stuff below is now irrelevant.

At the suggestion of a reader, I tweaked the badges to create “flag me as fishy to the White House” badges.

Just link the images to send an e-mail to the White House. I do it using JavaScript, like this:

That will put “This is fishy” in the subject of the e-mail and the Web address of the page on which the badge appears in the body of the e-mail!

You can try it out by clicking on the badge in my sidebar on the upper right of this page.

Of course, you can edit the code to make it say whatever you like, and you’ll want to edit the location of the badge to wherever you put it on your sever.

Why do this? To bombard the flag@whitehouse.gov e-mail address and whatever Obama lackeys who read the mail with messages. It’s ridiculous that the administration would even suggest such a thing. On the off chance the messages will actually get read, why not send them “rumors and chain letters” that actually have some hint of truth?

What, you want all of them?

Fine, here you go:

And for added fun, here’s an image for use as a Twitter profile pic:

Are there any sizes we still need? Let me know!


So if we dress like hippies, stop using deodorant and avoid bathing, you’ll pay attention?


The new liberal take on the scores of Americans showing up at town hall meetings and protests about health care reform is that those questioning the president’s plans are plants from insurance companies and are “too well dressed” to be genuine.

Today the Democratic National Committee began running this ad:

The crap this ad is spewing is enough to make anyone vomit. First, it portrays the tea party protesters as “angry mobs.” Second, it completely ignores the fact that Republicans were not in control during the last eight years — Democrats have had control of Congress since 2006. And we can’t forget that then-Sen. Obama voted for, and applauded, federal budgets.

And let’s just ignore the fact that the Democrats’ health care reforms are tanking in the polls. Those poll takers must be part of the angry mob, too.

Well, I’m proud to be part of the “mob,” especially if that means asking my elected officials questions, making sure they know I disagree with the direction they’re taking the country and standing for what I believe in.

Where was the DNC ad during the 2006 May Day immigration protests? Where they not “organized” using a “playbook?” Or does the criticism only apply to citizens who actually possess a legal right to vote?

Then there was my senator, Barbara Boxer, on “Hardball” last night.

Let me get this straight. Conservative protesters aren’t to be taken seriously because they dress well? If you’re wearing a tie, you’re part of mob?

And note that Boxer recounts her experience with well-dressed protesters — when she was asked by Al Gore to go to Florida as a proxy protester herself.

Talk about being out-of-touch.

Democrats are all for practicing democracy if you don’t speak English, can’t get a job and don’t know how to operate a shower. But if you’re employed, practice good hygiene and follow the law, you’re part of a “mob” hell-bent on hurting the president.

Barbara Boxer needs to be retired to San Francisco.

Tea party organizers take note: No showering a week before a protest, put away the razors and be sure to shop at a thrift store before showing up. Otherwise, Democrats want nothing to do with you.


So, how then do you dress for a protest?

Michelle Malkin has compiled a gallery of  “authentic” grass-roots activists. Of course, my favorite is the “less is more” selection.


The real health care agenda

The White House made some headlines yesterday when it responded to a headline on the Drudge Report that linked to a 2003 video of Barack Obama singing the praises of single-payer (read: socialized) health care.

The White House’s three-minute response to the 50-second clip claims that “the people who always try to scare people” are at it again.

Uh huh. And up is actually down, grass is purple, the stimulus package is working wonderfully and your doctor wants to take your tonsils and sell them for profit.

If only that one clip that Drudge linked to was the only example out there. But it’s not.

Let’s just take a look at a few of the administration officials and members of Congress (some very recently) explaining that the “public option” is another brick on the path toward single-payer, socialized medicine.

Barney Frank, July 27, 2009:

Rahm Emanuel, June 17, 2009: ‘The objective is what’s important, it’s not the means.’

Russ Feingold, May 5, 2009:

Jan Schakowsky, April 18, 2009:

Kathleen Sebelius, 2007:

And we can’t leave out the video that Drudge had the gall to link to of Obama:

And this is just a case of “the people who always try to scare people whenever you try to bring them health-insurance reform” rearing their ugly heads again.



Paul Ryan takes Katrina vanden Heuvel to the cleaners

“You’re using capitalistic rhetoric to try and move a plan that is inherently anti-market.”

Wait a minute. Rejecting a government-run system is anti-competition? I want a shot of whatever she’s having.
