Pelosi's Bunker Mentality

Barack Obama seems content to let Nancy Pelosi do whatever she wants. I guess he's the campaign guy and she's the actual govern-er? Clearly, he holds neither himself nor his partner, The Pelosi, to these promises which were, after all...just words.So, a few hours ago, I read this:As Steny Hoyer talks, a Republican aide reports that: "Dems are blocking access to their press conference. There is a list, and if you're not on it, you can't get through." The aide points out: "This is a … [Read more...]

Would he piss on an image of Obama?

Larry David found comedy fodder in piety on the latest episode of his series, "Curb Your Enthusiasm.'On the show's most recent installment, which aired Sunday, David urinates on a painting of Jesus Christ, causing a woman to believe the painting depicts Jesus crying. ... During Sunday's episode, David, who created, wrote and produced "Seinfeld," visits a bathroom in his assistant's home and splatters urine on a picture of Jesus. Instead of wiping it off, David leaves the restroom. Minutes … [Read more...]

School Choice in DC; a no-brainer!

Take a few minutes to watch this excellent video from PJTV, focusing on the Obama administration's ending a successful scholarship program that has allowed students to get out of the failing, miserable public schools in the District of Columbia (where more than $15,000 a year is spent, per student, with dismal results). The September 30 protest garnered little attention, but PJTV attended and asked good questions.Pay attention to the former Headmaster of Sidwell Friends School (where Chelsea … [Read more...]

Press fact-checks everyone but Obama

If you have not been paying attention, it's time to start.As you undoubtedly know, last week's episode of Saturday Night Live began with an impression that dared to mock President Obama, which -in the minds of our betters in the media- is simply not done.Tina Fey can (incorrectly) portray Sarah Palin as saying she could "see Russia from my house," and that is considered "spot-on" by CNN (their words) but a comic cannot suggest that President Obama has actually done (or left undone) things he … [Read more...]

Catching up on random things…

The US has relinquished control of the internet. Most powerful communication tool out there -potent delivery system for the weapon of ideas. Why should we want to control that? The internet is a pain, the MSM has to keep scrubbing it all the time!Then again we apparently do want to control this?About the Vinegar at Jesus' Crucifixion: We'd talked about it a little here, but Julie at Happy Catholics has been resourceful about it and you'll want to read what she's dug up. It's VERY … [Read more...]

Brilliant Artists are Privileged

Now, this is a curious thing. The Rhetoritician makes the valid point that Hollywood wishes to excuse men like Roman Polanski from their wrongdoing, but will work to destroy men like Mark Foley for theirs.Recalling Orwell's Animal Farm The Rhetoritician entitles his piece Some are more Equal than Others.Looking at pictures from U2's big concert in DC last night, I am seeing a pattern emerge.I am a fan -a big fan- of U2's music. I still think Achtung Baby and Zooropa are two of the best … [Read more...]

Headline questions

Saddest headline in my email today: George W. Bush was the last American President.I'm in sort of a cranky mood, especially after getting this thing in my email a dozen times. Not the HA post, the vid. If you can watch it you've got a stronger stomach than I do. And if you want info on the UI behind it, Malkin has it. Ugh, and ugh.So, I'll start with this video, instead. Note the line: "These are bad Americans, and they're putting our country at risk."Okay, I have questions.Oil … [Read more...]

The ACORN Grows into a Mighty Mess

Regular readers know I don't ordinarily cover the big, sensationalist stories that go viral through the blogosphere, unless I feel I have something to contribute, so I haven't said much of anything about these shocking videos of ACORN workers advising an undercover "pimp" and "ho" as to how they can get housing, evade taxes and -most repellent- traffic in underage prostitutes brought in from Latin America.I had incorrectly and naively assumed that given the nature of the relationship between … [Read more...]

Oh, nuts! Obama Speech Reax

I have not one, not two but three things I have to start writing for various deadlines, so I'm going to offer you a quick look-around from my email and a few sites and then tip the hat and ride off into the sunset for most of the day, pardners.Obama was going to bring "his own plan" on healthcare to the Congress yesterday, wasn't that the pre-speech meme?"This is the momentism!": Again with the Broadwayesque-Bombast. Every Obama speech is "the moment." Say, isn't that the big song from … [Read more...]

"The narrative WILL be maintained…" -UPDATE

A terrific spiel by Bill Whittle - a nice history lesson and forbidden logic to boot. It's 13 minutes long. Don't miss it.UPDATE: Don't miss this: Another example of how narratives are maintained. But you know that's one of my pet peeves, right - how the press reports on presidents with differing letters after their names?Although I don't hear "the recession is over", anymore. Do you?I don't know how we're supposed to believe in anything, trust anything or have faith in anything the … [Read more...]
