One Heck of a Shinola

williambanzai7's picture


Do you know "$hit from $hinola"?

Just  a short while ago I wrote a silly comment on George Washington's informative BP oil plume update. It related to this important lesson in life:

Then I read this recap of part of Obama's appearance on Jon Stewart's Daily Show:

Stewart suggested to Obama that one of the problems was that far from having change, he had brought into power many of the same old faces, such as his economics adviser, Larry Summers, who is about to leave the administration and has been heavily criticised over the lacklustre state of the economy. "In fairness, Larry did a heck of a job," Obama said. Stewart interjected: "You don't want to use that phrase, dude."  [See clip below]


I know you know what I am thinking, I don't even have to say it...I will show it to you instead:


Wiktionary: To know "shit from shinola"= To have the most basic level of intelligence or common sense.



Brownie is one heck of a Shinola!


We have toxic $hit hiding in the Gulf, we have toxic Shit hiding on Wall Street, we have toxic $hit for brains running a bankrupt banksta economy and no amount of $hinola is going to change that.  Guess what...


We have entered the $hinola Zone.



I don't know, perhaps it is foolhardy to give the President a "gimme" when it comes to the question of intelligence and common sense.






I have the greatest respect for the institutions of our government.

However, when it comes to the people appointed to these institutions, my respect does not come automatically. I see no reason to pull any punches with regard to their performance or the lack thereof. In fact I consider it our civic duty to take the gloves off!


See it for yourself.   Was the pun intended?

The Daily Show With Jon Stewart Mon - Thurs 11p / 10c
Barack Obama Pt. 3
Daily Show Full Episodes Political Humor Rally to Restore Sanity


[UPDATE: I am pleased to report that William K Black concurs with my view:

 "I passed up the obvious title: "Heckuva Job Larry!" That was the moment of President Obama's appearance on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart that set all Americans cringing. Yes, he really said that Summers "did a heckuva job." The candidate that was gifted the opportunity to run against the legacy of one of the worst presidents in U.S. history has, as president, used Bush as his role model to continue many disastrous policies. It was strangely fitting that he would channel Bush's infamous praise ("Heckuva job Brownie") for the FEMA chief who failed New Orleans so badly in the hurricane."

ugg boots london I saw something shocking uggs london on my way to work the other day. uggs new york While bundled in a long sleeved shirt, wool sweater and coat, with a Pashmina, hat and gloves,ugg boots london sale I saw a man with his bike a the bus stop in SANDALS. He wasn’t overly well dressed for cold weather, in jeans, t-shirt and open jacket. Now, having lived in Oregon for the past decade I have come to be aware of what “true Oregonians” consider winter attire. ugg boots london shop This primarily consists of the inbred belief that flip-flops are a necessity year round, and sweaters and umbrellas are for tourists. I do not uphold this belief.ugg boots sale london I love getting dressed up for winter, layering on leggings with my sweater dress and ugg boots new york, a sweater and a jacket, and a rotating army of scarves, hats and gloves.ugg boots london stockists I don’t enjoy being frozen, especially knowing how easy a situation that is to avoid. uggs new york sale So personally, buy ugg boots london I do not consider myself a “true Oregonian.” I like umbrellas, and only wear flip flops when it’s above 75 degrees.Based on the population of Oregon, ugg new york I’m probably in the minority. Although I have come to accept that these people are just immune to cold in a way I am not, uggs new york of sale I do still think they are crazy. I’m guessing that the good folks at UGG Australia caught wind of these people because look at what they have to offer: sandals with fleece!uggs new york on sale

Tnx Kathy...Tim and Ben have allowed the markets to mutate into a horror show so it is very easy for me to cook up these visions. If you think I like halloween, wait till Christmas rolls along ;-)

Why did he change his name from leibowitz?

BTW, does anyone else notice how Obama likes to put his hand on everyone's shoulder?  It happens in many interviews.  It's his way of asserting dominance. 

williambanzai7's picture

That is a disarmament/body language technique. Also notice how we are all "folks."

 a ZH romper room for the intellectually dysfunctional.  

anony's picture

The applause for that asshole of a POTUS demonstrates like nothing else can, that the romper room description is badly misplaced.

The audience owns it, at least portion of it giving POTUS a high five.




williambanzai7's picture

Maybe they were following a prompter like at the tonight show;-)  Nahhhhh!

I don't know why, but I feel compelled to drop a comment on this one...;)

"You don't want to use that phrase, dude."  

Stewart could have used that line many times in response to Obama's litany of his Administration's 'accomplishments'.

Nice work WBInfinity!

yea, Obummer kept dropping bland "making great progress" Bushism's as well...

must be a corporatist handbook of handy PR phrases given out on inauguration day

The real joke is how the (target) audience is laughing and clapping at all the wrong places, and cheering him for saying obvious lies

williambanzai7's picture

The room wa packed with civil servants, political types and beltway bandits. What do you expect.

Azannoth's picture

This is classic 'Americans are NOT stupid - WITH SUBTITLES'

williambanzai7's picture

Very funny. But I think you will find that in many other places in the world.

A flying saucer to hover over the White House et al in the movie.

Comedians use to be comedians and not political operatives. I guess the days of caring if anyone knows are over and they figure most of the population is to stupid to tell the difference.

williambanzai7's picture

Well the lines between news, editorial, self promotion and entertainment are hopelessly skewed at this point.

Without the internet we would be absolutely, irrevocably, totally screwed.

drchris's picture

WOW!  I understand it's not going to be easy to get this economy going, and I'm not expecting it to happen anytime soon no matter who is in charge, but to sit there and wave the mission accomplished banner is infuriating.  Stabilized the economy and stock market?  Bullshit!  Too bad you can print homes and sell them to pretend the housing market has stabilized as well.  

williambanzai7's picture

Mission accomplished, that is what they think!

Please don't make me watch Stewart. As funny as he is, he is a shill and it is painful to watch. You are funnier! WB7

Hey Diebold kicked ass this am and the default setting seems to be working fine. 

Oh and be prepared for the O's gray hair to show up when his ratings drop below 35%.

Random observations.

As usual: Shit happens/Shinola-LOL

Obama is just the latest in the line of convenient puppets.  It will be interesting to see how his masters deal with the foreclosure problem which, in normal times, would lead to dissolution of at least 2 banksters; the CFTC situation which, barring corruption and croneyism, should have immediately delivered a $100 spike in gold and a $20 spike in Silver.  When all is said and done, probably nothing will change.  A presumably free press has long been captured by the utopian NWO of the Progressives.

What makes me slightly optimistic about Wall Street self destructing is the securitized doomsday machine they created. It is in self destruct mode and no one has the override codes. 

Village Idiot's picture

Obama please!  Talk to the hand, Mr. President, the face isn't listening.  I truly hope that this man is gone after first up at bat.  And why the fuck is John Stewart's audience clapping about the timing of job losses?  Talk about "abused spouse" syndrome - haven't you people had enough? 

Wake up!!!

williambanzai7's picture

That audience is from DC and vicinity, which is a boom town now. I think you would get a different reaction from a Vegas, Detroit or Dayton audience.
