No, I did not watch Obama's speech

Derek Jeter started the game needing three hits to tie Lou Gehrig's record of hits-as-a-Yankee.He got the three hits during the game (and he was a class act as he did it), plus he got his 300th stolen base, and then Jorge Posada hit a splendid three-run homer to top it all off.I have my priorities. It mattered much more to see all that than to hear Obama say what I've heard him say before.Tepid political theater is no match for a good ballgame. And if I have a choice between looking at … [Read more...]

Clearing out the tab

I've got some deadlines to meet and a project I'd like to get started, so I need to stop futzing around, reading news and blogs and get to it. Here is what's been cluttering up my tab-bar for the last day or so - it's a bit of a jumble, sorry:Malta, shamelessly cribbed from CrescatBeautiful Malta! Where Doug Kmiec is the new US Ambassador after what Dan Gilgoff describes as a "strange religious/political" swearing in. Kmiec is the Catholic former Reagan WH Legal Counsel who campaigned … [Read more...]

The Pinnacle: slim, sharp & lonely

Catching up on all the stories since I have been away and I must have missed this one when it broke - the header: Democrat: Republicans hate ObamaCare because they’re racists. Also, Castro’s a genius.The Democrat is Rep. Diane Watson (D-California). Watson is both African-American and female, so she is speaking from the fake ledge of "absolute moral authority" which was once the province of Cindy Sheehan until she stopped being a useful bat for to beat around the Bush, with. From Watson's led … [Read more...]

The word of the week is "crazy" – UPDATED

UPDATE: Please note, I had a copy of the projected deficit chart which you can see here included with this piece, but it apparently violated my photohost's terms of use.So the Journolist or whoever it is who co-ordinates the narratives for the Mainstream Media, seem to have settled on the word "crazy," and "insane," to describe people who are not "moderates," like them.If you do not like this chart and think something should be done about it, you are "crazy"From the LA Times: … [Read more...]

Obama & Co Theater: Chaos & Cajolery UPDATED

Okay, so...60 days into this new presidency, it looks to me like we're going to spend the next four years watching a non-stop play of infinite acts. With none of the wit or wisdom of Pride & Prejudice, Obama and Company are going to treat us to Chaos & Cajolery.Basically, the theater production is 137 acts (presented without intermission) of Barack Obama and/or any one of his supporting players (from the veep, the speaker, the secstate, the sectreas and on down to the lowly press … [Read more...]

Obama & Dems: Put your dreams away…UPDATED

My husband works for a company that is trying to sell their product to places like Lowe's and Home Depot.I hear Obama say "BUILDING SPRAWL STOPS NOW!" and I think, there go 800,000 jobs. And along with those jobs, probably another 100,000 jobs in retail and business technologies.And there goes an awful lot of tax revenue. How we are supposed to pay for this beast of a bill without taxable earnings is something the great "I Won" - who can't say a positive word about industry, … [Read more...]

Advice: In Hard Times, "Give More" – UPDATED

He sat down opposite the treasury and observed how the crowd put money into the treasury. Many rich people put in large sums. A poor widow also came and put in two small coins worth a few cents. Calling his disciples to himself, he said to them, "Amen, I say to you, this poor widow put in more than all the other contributors to the treasury. For they have all contributed from their surplus wealth, but she, from her poverty, has contributed all she had, her whole livelihood." -- … [Read more...]

Michelle Obama’s Ball Gown

Alright, I haven't indulged my inner fashionista in a long time, but I must comment about Michelle Obama's Inaugural styles.First off, Mrs. Obama looked fantastic in this Narciso Rodriguez creation for the pre-inaugural concert at the Lincoln Memorial. She looked comfortable, the black-and-tan was dynamite on her and she looked warm; by far my favorite of her outfits. Everything about it - FABULOUS!Unfortunately, she did not look anywhere near as comfortable, or as warm, at the … [Read more...]

Presidential Workouts: Bush creepy; Obama a godling

“If you don’t read the newspaper, you are uninformed. If you do read the newspaper, you are misinformed.” -- Mark TwainIf the press loves you, you can do no wrong. If they hate you, you can do no right. In either case, what they are presenting is distorted and therefore unfair to their subjects or their readers.I touched yesterday on the media double-standard regarding presidential work-outs, but Michelle Malkin does a better job of fleshing it out:Ah, the perks of media affec … [Read more...]

“The Humbling”: The ONE goes to Don Clinton

So, it appears that "The One" is going begging to Don Clinton, hat in hand:The One strides in confidently and extends his hand to The Don. The Don looks up, contemplates the proffered hand, and watches The One's smile fade as it is not shaken. The One retracts his hand, and tilts his head, comprehending, but not liking it. Still, he needs this meeting.Don Clinton nods slightly, and with a silky hand motions The One to take a seat. Don Clinton's blue eyes are grave, but there is a … [Read more...]
