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.

Obama & Co Theater: Chaos & Cajolery UPDATED

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...]

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...]

Had an interesting exchange with someone in the press today, who noted that the big kahuna of the big-time-journalism outfit which signs the paycheck is fervently pro-Hillary, and seeks "to use Michelle Obama's first time I've been proud of my country' gaffe as a stick to beat Obama with.Thus, you see, helping Hillary with her difficult February.The irony here, of course, is that Michelle Obama is the circa-'92-Hillary of this election; she is the smart, tough, ivy-league-educated, loose … [Read more...]
