From the Smoking Gun, “Police Sting Nets “Cougar,” 71, On Prostitution Rap:”
Grandma, is that you?
In the January 25 backpage.com ad that caught the eye of investigators, Liebhart/“Lola” is described as a “perfect pleasure” who is “delicious, delectable, delightful.” The ad–titled “Older is Better”–noted that the septuagenarian hooker would only be in Glastonbury for three days.
A January 12 backpage.com ad listed “Lola”’s age as 60, noting that she is “well preserved” and “All natural.” The ad included a phone number along with the notice that “Lola” did not accept texts or e-mails, and did not book appointments after 8 PM.
In another online listing, Liebhart describes herself as a “truly mature escort with over 25 years experience in delivering a symphony of luxury and sensual delight to discriminating professional gentlemen both younger and older who can afford the best and who prefer their women a bit older but a lot better.” Prospective customers are advised to “savor the charms of maturity and submit yourself to sensuous abandon in the arms of a genuine Cougar.
I’ll bet she’s a riot in the TV room back at the retirement community.
I hope she doesn’t have any grandchildren, and if so, none of them accidentally decides to hire “Lola,” only to show up in some seedy motel to find Grandma.
We face a possible second downgrade of America’s debt because of the last 10 years of spending, which was excessive under President Bush, and which has accelerated at a breathtaking pace under the able stewardship of B. Hussein Obama. We look at the weasels in D.C., and express disgust over the way they enthusiastically spend other people’s money, but is that fair? Aren’t they just doing what the voters tell them to do? Consider this excerpt from David Brooks’ column, published yesterday:
Ultimately, we should blame the American voters. The average Medicare couple pays $109,000 into the program and gets $343,000 in benefits out, according to the Urban Institute. This is $234,000 in free money. Many voters have decided they like spending a lot on themselves and pushing costs onto their children and grandchildren. They have decided they like borrowing up to $1 trillion a year for tax credits, disability payments, defense contracts and the rest. They have found that the original Keynesian rationale for these deficits provides a perfect cover for permanent deficit-living. They have made it clear that they will destroy any politician who tries to stop them from cost-shifting in this way.
I am very curious about what you think about this assertion. The Urban Institute tends to be left-wing think tank, so if anything their computations probably give recipients the benefit of the doubt. Regardless of the precise numbers, it’s very clear that current beneficiaries of these programs are getting a lot more out than they put in. If you are currently receiving these benefits, are you happy about spending future generations into oblivion so that you don’t have to give up any government payments? What say you?

Obama apparatchiks lamely attempt to defend the Independent Payment Advisory Board that will eventually ration and deny care to seniors. Connect the dots, people. The $716 billion that Obama robbed from Medicare to fund his health care scheme has to come from somewhere. Hello death panel.
If you can find more serious people than these three, I’d like to see them. No wonder Barack Obama decided to grant them an interview!
The Dear Reader visits a morning zoo to talk to 3 vacuous DJs about his favorite foods, his iPod’s workout song offerings and what super power he’d like to have. How about the power to speak without his precious TelePrompTer?
Obama’s mouthpiece, the man with that oh-so-slappable face, Ben LaBolt, calls Mitt Romney “unhinged” for calling out the One’s campaign for its Chicago ways, but to really see the living breathing definition of unhinged he need look no further than his colleague Stephanie Cutter. Ms. Cutter is famous for her unforgettable role in John “Lurch” Kerry’s campaign, when she told us that the late Christopher Reeve had endorsed her man on his deathbed. Unfortunately, she was the only one who heard it. In her current star turn with the Obama campaign, Ms. Cutter is known for having to cancel at least one Sunday show appearance last week to avoid questions about her claim to have no idea about the history of the steelworker, whose wife Mitt Romney allegedly killed, after audio surfaced of her on a conference call with that very same “steelworker” (read Obama operative). This morning she was back, and you are not going to believe what she had to say about the $716 billion that Obama robbed from Medicare to fund his health care scheme. In addition, Obama’s buffoonish former press flack, Robert Gibbs turned up, and tried to explain what a wonderful boon the Independent Payment Advisory Board (read “death panel”) will be for seniors and their health care. How did he answer Chris Wallace’s question about Fast and Furious and the administration’s executive privilege claim? Short answer: poorly. We’ll share the audio.
Clearly, buyer’s remorse afflicts many voters who were conned by that whole hopey-changey foolishness of four years ago. One of them is our guest, writer and investigative reporter Craig Karpel has written a new book, The 12-Step Guide for the Recovering Obama Voter to help people like him who want to get well.

Isn’t it amazing how leftist media weasels suddenly discover religion when they want to rip a conservative? Newt was having none of that. Enjoy this delicious beat down of CNN’s Piers Morgan by the always brilliant former Speaker.
In a little over an hour, Mitt Romney will formally announce, from the deck of the U.S.S. Wisconsin, in Norfolk, Virginia, that he has chosen Rep. Paul Ryan as his V.P. choice. I was surprised, and delighted, by this news. I assumed that Mitt would go with the safe choice, Tim Pawlenty. I am happy to be wrong. The selection of Paul Ryan is an excellent one because:
There is no one better to make the case for courageous leadership to deal with our looming fiscal crisis and preventing our country from turning into Greece.
This choice demonstrates that the Romney campaign is not only not afraid of the bleating by airheads like Debbie Wasserman Schultz about the “Romney-Ryan budget,” they are prepared to take it head on.
Speaking of the budget, this selection gives the Romney campaign to highlight the fact that the democrat-run Senate hasn’t passed a budget in over 1000 days, even though they are legally required to do so.
One more thing: Can you imagine how much fun it’s going to be to watch Paul Ryan debate Joe Biden?
Nicely played, Governor. I was starting to think that you were going a little wobbly on us.
Last week, Andrea Mitchell decided to do her part in the LSM’s re-elect Barack Obama mission by distracting us from the rampant lawlessness, corruption and economic failures of the current administration. The current initiative’s objective is get Americans to focus on the number one burning issue keeping Americans awake at night. Not the threat posed by an imminently nuclear Iran. Not the millions so discouraged by the Obama economy that they have dropped out of the labor force. Not the numbers of good doctors leaving the practice of medicine due to the crushing regulations that are only the first wave of the Regime’s takeover of the health care system. Of course, those relative trivialities pale in comparison to what is obviously the most important issue in the upcoming presidential election, unfettered access to unlimited birth control.
So, Andrea invited Rick Santorum supporter and campaign contributor Foster Friess on her low-rated MS-NBC show to implore him to explain Mr. Santorum’s alleged unreasonable, even pre-historic, attitudes toward birth control, and by implication, the role of women in society. Never mind that this supposed Neanderthal Santorum does not believe in banning contraception, and that he in factdid vote for funding it. Here’s part of their exchange:
“I get such a chuckle when these things come out,” he said. He added, “We have jihadist camps being set up in Latin America, which Rick has been warning about and people seem to be so preoccupied with sex — I think it says something about our culture. We maybe need a massive therapy session so we can concentrate on what the real issues are.”
Friess then turned to contraception. “This contraceptive thing, my gosh it’s such [sic] inexpensive. Back in my days, they used Bayer Aspirin for contraception. The gals put it between their knees and it wasn’t that costly,” he said.
Mitchell, taken aback, said, “Excuse me, I’m just trying to catch my breath from that” and changed the subject. Friess later described Santorum as “truly the post-partisan candidate,” a line ascribed to then-candidate Barack Obama in 2008.
I’m a little confused. Is this the same Andrea Mitchell currently appearing in a promo on her network, explaining her start in journalism, battling to be taken seriously at a time when “people didn’t think a woman could be a reporter?” And this throwaway joke makes her get a case of the vapors? Perhaps they need to put a fainting couch in her studio. This statement reflects the same confused and illogical feminist mentality that says that only evil, invidious discrimination prevents from women by being on the front lines in combat, while at the same time claims that the very same women need a federal agency to protect them from off-color jokes in the workplace. In her promo, Andrea recounts facing down a dictator’s security force during a trip to the Sudan with Condi Rice, but apparently that was nothing compared to this horrifying aspirin joke! PULEEZE.
Clearly, Andrea’s claim that Mr. Friess’ statement took her breath away is ridiculous, but not only because she’s a tough, experienced journalist. I don’t mean to be cruel, but does Ms. Mitchell, born in 1946, really expect us to believe that she never heard anything like Mr. Friess’ joke? Andrea, I’m sorry, but you are more than old enough to remember the clear distinction between “nice girls,” who definitely did keep their knees together, with or without the assistance of an aspirin, and the “easy” girls who didn’t. Back in the day, in say 1962 or so, when young Andrea and her friends were going to the prom (and yes, I know I’m being generous in assuming that she actually had a prom date), everyone understood what people meant when a girl lost her “reputation” and earned the title “tramp.” Remember this movie? It was extremely popular when Ms. Mitchell was in her early teens, and accurately reflects our society’s attitudes about sex and morality then.
I am much younger–I assure you, much much younger–than Andrea, and I remember the whispers when a girl in my high school “got in trouble” and was actually sent away to live with a relative in another state to have her baby.
If Medicare-eligible Ms. Mitchell really doesn’t remember what it was like back in the day, she could ask her 200-year old husband.
