Obey-mian Representative Democracy

SourceI'll say this for Life Under the Obama Regime, the inclusion of communist-inspired propaganda art has certainly upgraded and enlivened political expression. This is much more captivating (and substantive) than, for example, the played-out Bushian beheadings and vampires. (H/T)Then there is the spreading Joker, which apparently has been collecting new captionsArt appreciation aside, does anyone remember the recent demonizing of corporate fellows who dared to take private jets to … [Read more...]

Michelle Malkin, The View, The Book

Promoting her book Culture of Corruption; Obama and his Team of Tax Cheats, Crooks and Cronies Michelle Malkin made it to The View this morning and hashed it out with Whoopi Goldberg, Joy Behar and the rest.The video is probably going viral, and you can watch it either here.The View is execrable programing, shrill and often demented. It would be vastly improved by simply replacing Joy Behar with a genuine magpie, (it was Behar who convinced me that President Bush absolutely needed to be … [Read more...]

All of your base are belong to us…UPDATED

Considering that for many of us our computers are very much our "base" this is pretty damned chilling. Not a Beck fan, but pianogirl sent this my way and urged me to watch. WOW. Astounding. Is this still America? Where is the press on this? I know the clause being cited here is meant to apply to dealership computers (and not ordinary buyers) but the fact that the clause exists at all is troubling. At its most innocent, this is unbelievably sloppy. At it's worst, it's downright … [Read more...]

"Immoral Villains!" sez Nancy "Queeg" Pelosi – UPDATED

Okay, I've decided that Nancy Pelosi (whose Native American name might be "Stands With An Angry Little Fist" ala "Dancing With Wolves") is beginning to sound like a paranoid lunatic who can find a convenient villain any time she needs one, as Tom Elia points out here.Thus spaketh The Pelosi:"They are the villains in this," Pelosi said of private insurers. "They have been part of the problem in a major way. They are doing everything in their power to stop a public option from happening. And … [Read more...]

No, you can't see the numbers; the King is a Fink

The King is a Fink by Parker & HartSo, the White House is not going to give us taxpayers a timely update on the nation's money and employment situation.They're just gonna "hold that information back" until Congress goes into recess.They're just gonna keep everyone in the dark until they muscle through his unpopular Healthcare legislation - that 1,000-page, unread, undebated document - that will push our deficit into unbearable territory, give the government unprecedented control over … [Read more...]

Cronkite passes

Newsman Walter Cronkite has passed away at age 92.I tend to echo Allahpundit's sentiments, here. His life was long and successful, his death came at a late age we should all be so fortunate to see; I wish peace for his family, but absolutely dread another overindulgent media-waking. Particularly when the American public faces so many grave issues, the anticipation of watching the press glurge at another morbidly sentimental feast just feels exhausting.That journalists were my first heroes … [Read more...]

Obama, "no excuses," Boxer inexcusable – UPDATED

I like this clip of President Obama speaking forcefully and passionately, and I think, from the heart, about teaching our children to expect more from themselves.Embedded video from CNN VideoObama is speaking to the NAACP, but his message is pertinent to all of America, where we spend a lot of time telling our children how "special" they are, but don't re-inforce that message by allowing them to really discover their uniqueness and individual genius by offering enough daily challenges and … [Read more...]

Science Czars & Healthcare; When Life is devalued…UPDATED

President Obama's plans are to appoint 32 Czars within his administration. These are people about whom Congress does not advise or consent, and about whom the press is conveniently incurious. So far, the press thinks they're all just brilliant and they have no problem with a president appointing 32 Czars accountable only to him.Whadda you think of that? You comfortable knowing that these "czars" escape serious but are given some rather potent power with little oversight?I mean, come … [Read more...]

The difference goes beyond the pitch

I see I was not the only one watching last night's All-Star Game who wondered if David Axelrod had negotiated the bizarre angle (there is no other word for it, if you're a baseball-watching fan) used to showcase President Barack Obama's ceremonial "first pitch." I have never seen a president throw a pitch, before, where the angle left out the catcher at the plate.Yes, I had to wonder if the shot was planned that way, if the White House was so insecure about this teleprompter-addicted … [Read more...]

Palin, Obama & Not quite pulled together yet

I know it must seem like I'm being lazy and not attending to my work over here; it's not that. I just can't seem to settle in and focus on much.The news feels like it's all coming in too fast to process, the congress is passing mammoth bills it can't be bothered to read. As the deficit tops ONE TRILLION DOLLARS for the first time, ever, the president is standing at ship's helm, a deep gouge in his hull, and blocking our views while saying "everything is mostly great; things are working … [Read more...]
