Wednesday Various and Sundry

The Anchoress aptly reads a terrible photo of Obama; it’s telling that the Obami likely think the photo flattering of our Dear Leader when it’s exactly the opposite.

How much taxpayer money was spent on Census bureau “swag”–free mugs, stickers and the like?  Probably close to a billion dollars.  That’s right, a billion.  Except the government minions won’t come clean.

Courtesy Hot Air, a cautionary tale of what too much free candy does to the soul: rots it completely.  A British couple, parents to seven with another on the way, figured out they could make more money sans working at all, existing solely on government bennies.

At their semi on the Isle of Anglesey, the family have a 42in flatscreen television in the living room with Sky TV at £50 a month, a Wii games console, three Nintendo DS machines and a computer – not to mention four mobile phones.

With their income of more than £42,000 a year, they run an 11-seater minibus and the seven-seat automatic Mercedes.

But according to the Daveys they have nothing to be thankful for.

‘It doesn’t bother me that taxpayers are paying for me to have a large family,’ added Mrs Davey.

‘We couldn’t afford to care for our children without benefits, but as long as they have everything they need, I don’t think I’m selfish.

‘Most of the parents at our kids’ school are on benefits.’

She added: ‘I don’t feel bad about being subsidised by people who are working. I’m just working with the system that’s there.

GO.  GET.  A.  JOB.  Wrenching away free candy from sloths will be painful.

I’m not sure this is true (and I’d love to see the samples): Number of Republicans among military down sharply.  H/T: Hot Air.  And the Military Times is just as liberal as the WaPo.

Loony leftie Tea Party Crashers gear up for Thursday.  The smears didn’t work even with the media fully in the bag.  This means we’re winning.  Confirmation: 24% of voters call themselves tea partiers.
