That’s why Barack Obama did not mention the rate of growth among the unemployed last night. Clown Prince does not see the invisible to him millions.
As James Pethokoukis wrote, for the unemployed, for those looking for work, it was an awful, awful August jobs report.
The August jobs report and the American economy under Obama are so bad they make Barack Obama’s public masturbations last night appear tolerable. Not that last night went well for the clown prince. Even Big Media acolytes had to admit they need higher dosages of Hopium delivered by syringe:
“CNN’s Wolf Blitzer: “A Lot Of Stuff We’ve Heard Before.” [snip] (CNN, 9/6/12)Anyone notice how Barack Obama suffers by comparison to Bill Clinton? After the nostalgia for the 1990s and after some time to come down from Bill’s tour-de-farce performance on Wednesday, Americans will sober up and realize Barack Obama is not Bill Clinton and that Barack Obama needs to be sent packing back to crime ridden Chicago where he is in his element. It’s why we advise that Romney/Ryan supporters employ the ultimate putdown if they want to unemploy Barack Obama:

Now for the movie. "Strait Jacket." This is a 1964 film starring Joan Crawford. To promote the movie, she went to various local premieres with an axe because, in the film, she's getting out of a mental institution after chopping up her husband with an axe. She killed him when she caught him in bed with his mistress (whom she also killed).
Now her daughter's a grown up and she's out and trying to act normal but afraid she's going nuts.
I got this movie from Netflix because I read a review where they said this almost campy horror film, B-movie that it is, still featured an outstanding and classic performance by Crawford.
She's not bad in it but this isn't a classic film.
And can I make a suggestion for people who make movies: Outside of Jamie Lee Curtis, few people can pull off a scream.
Joan Crawford screams in some movies. Effectively.
Not in this one. She lets out this blood curdling scream and I knew it was going to be repeated. I did not know she was going to scream four times in a row. It did not pull me into the movie. It gave me a headache and it made me wish she'd shut up.
Spoiler, the adult daughter, she's setting Mommy up. Joan's not crazy.
Her performance is never bad but I would not rank it among her best.
I also thought she looked like Eartha Kitt in some of the film -- like Eartha at the end.
I really wanted to watch this movie and be able to proclaim that even in a crappy B-film Crawford delivers. And she does, but it's not a great performance and no one could have delivered a great performance in the film.
Going out with C.I.'s "Iraq snapshot:"
