Dana Perino has ‘mixed emotions,’ but this sign suits NYC perfectly [pic]

http://twitter.com/#!/mrpeter63/status/449610122705522689

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio wants to do away with horse-drawn carriages. “The Five” cohost Dana Perino recently spotted some citizens who clearly aren’t on-board with the mayor’s plan:

Interesting.

Inquiring minds wanna know.

http://twitter.com/#!/DanaPerino/status/449613047767003136

OK, scratch that. Maybe they don’t wanna know.

Well anyway, one thing’s for sure: NYC is the perfect place for that sign.

‘LOL’: Launch of Ezra Klein, Matt Yglesias venture sponsored by G.E.

http://twitter.com/#!/redsteeze/status/442802719498452992

In January, liberal blogger Ezra Klein, formerly of the Washington Post, promised a “new way of delivering the news.” That “new way” is ready for launch, as announced by Klein and Slate’s Matt Yglesias, who will serve as executive editor of Vox:

http://twitter.com/#!/mattyglesias/status/442793904979447808
http://twitter.com/#!/voxdotcom/status/442793726876737536

The best part?

http://twitter.com/#!/kendall/status/442794215320604672
http://twitter.com/#!/redsteeze/status/442801892184571904

The launch sponsor is General Electric. Both Klein and Yglesias have blasted a system that offers corporations like G.E. major tax loopholes. But if the surplus is invested in the “proper” venture, apparently they’re willing to look the other way.

Yglesias also used General Electric as an example of “terrible” corporate behavior in a December column titled “Dividends are Evil.”

‘Just WOW!’ Sen. Mike Lee’s shocking display of fed regulations [pic]

http://twitter.com/#!/goqivana/status/422207618183360512

WOW indeed. Take a gander at the photo of the 2013 Federal Register and its 80,000 pages of federal regulations via Sen. Lee’s Facebook page:

Citizens on Twitter also voiced their disbelief, anger and frustration.

Amen. Keep fighting the good fight, senator.

Man says he was denied care despite signing up with Covered California

http://twitter.com/#!/AndrewEdwardsCA/status/419283966466600960

A Long Beach, Calif., man held a one-person protest this week, saying he was denied health care even though he signed up for health insurance through Covered CA, the state’s Obamacare insurance exchange.

Andrew Edwards is a reporter for the Long Beach Press-Telegram.

Ron Fournier: For the record, nobody is panicking about Ebola

http://twitter.com/#!/ron_fournier/status/525471338828685313

Ron Fournier, a reporter for National Journal, makes a good point. So far, Americans have been much more alarmed by the Obama administration’s incompetence in dealing with Ebola than by the Ebola virus itself.

//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js

If this is the strongest evidence of “panic” that can be found, then that only reinforces Fournier’s point.

WH glad O-care discourages working; MacCallum destroys with one question

And it’s totally good news, guys! According to the lying liars who lie in the Obama administration, at least. More from Hot Air:

I’m done, guys. If we’ve reached the stage of welfare-state decadence where it’s a selling point for a new entitlement that it discourages able-bodied people from working, there’s no reason to keep going. We’ve lost, decisively.

As a great man once said, remember me as I am — filled with murderous rage.

Yep. The shake fisty is strong with this one.

As Twitchy reported, lapdogs over at HuffPo jumped in to wag their tails and further the absurd spin. Fox News’ Martha MacCallum is no lapdog. As always, she has cut right to the chase with a truth bomb.

Michelle Malkin and friends coach Jan Schakowsky through ramen crisis [photos]

http://twitter.com/#!/watchdog_jedi/status/492414418538758144

As Twitchy reported, Rep. Jan Schakowsky is roughing it in order to learn how to #LiveTheWage. Among the items on her menu for the week were ramen noodles. The horror. The horror!

Not surprisingly, Schakowsky’s culinary woes didn’t garner much sympathy from many Americans, who routinely pepper their diets with stuff like ramen. But Michelle Malkin is nothing if not a giver, and after offering a peek at her own oh-so-paltry pantry:

http://twitter.com/#!/michellemalkin/status/492406150462070784

She asked followers to share their ramen recipes with the disillusioned Dem:

Malkin received plenty of worthy submissions:

David Sirota hopelessly outmatched in battle of wits with Greg Gutfeld

http://twitter.com/#!/jakester451/status/504454375470039040

No one of substance. Just another liberal talking head who is best known for his lame Twitter avatar.

http://twitter.com/#!/davidsirota/status/504397981756313600

Oh … um … snap?

http://twitter.com/#!/greggutfeld/status/504453085834797056

At this point in the contest a quality opponent would fire back with a witty rejoinder, preferably in the style established with the first salvo. David Sirota on the other hand opted for this.

http://twitter.com/#!/davidsirota/status/504455222693867520

Embarrassing.

Biting the lower lip is what really ups the intimidation factor here.

Nope.
