Pelosi-Reid Olive Branch to Dubya

Mr. President, as my dog would tell you, don't be a chump. You gotta pull some of those knives out your back.I know Bush honors and respects the Office of the presidency; I know he doesn't want to dishonor it. But to my way of thinking, dealing in "good faith" with those two - this Pelosi, this egregious Reid - is now doing dishonor to that office. It's casting the pearl of the American Presidency before swines.They shove a shiv under your ribs while they smile and smile and be villains. … [Read more...]

Exploiting kids for Obama; 2 minutes hate – UPDATED

I sniff the wind of change, and it smells noxious and it seems suffocatingThis child has a lovely voice. The song is creeping me out."We're gonna spread happiness! We're gonna spread freeeeeeedom! Obama..."It creeped me out in 2000 when people stood on a streetcorner handing out lyrics and singing songs about how Hillary Clinton was "a human statue of liberty..." who would solve all the world's problems.It creeps me out even more to see children exploited - to serenade and "lighten … [Read more...]

Katrina: Democrat, Ike: Republican

Over at Pajamas Media, Dr. Melissa Clouthier is having trouble integrating after Hurricane Ike even though, as she quickly admits, many are much worse off than she.Every home — and that is not an exaggeration — had at least one tree down. The community is called The Woodlands for a reason. Trees define it. The question was where the trees went. Many went through the roofs of their owner’s homes causing flooding.Saturday morning brought unrelenting rain, so a hole in the roof meant water dam … [Read more...]

So, Rangel gives up nothing? UPDATED

UPDATE II: 9-18-2008 Pelosi sees no reason why Rangel should step down. Unreal.So, just to keep it all straight, Rep. Charlie Rangel (D-NY) has fishy, troubling personal finances but he doesn't have to give up his seat in Congress. His party is not asking him to resign or step down. It looks like Mrs. Pelosi - who famously brought her broom to Congress to "clean it up" - is not even going to ask Rengel to resign his committee chair.And ummm...if I'm not mistaken, Rep. William Jefferson … [Read more...]

Does Brokaw remember Carter? – UPDATED

After noting that the AP took the good economic news released yesterday and re-wrote the headline and lede into negatives, I just noticed this:The second quarter Gross Domestic Product (GDP) was revised upward Thursday by the Commerce Department from the initially estimated 1.9 percent to a robust 3.3 percent, but neither the CBS Evening News nor NBC Nightly News mentioned the good news...NBC News veteran Tom Brokaw, however...asserted from Denver:Beyond this arena, and this city, the … [Read more...]

Insomniac quick hits II

George W. Obama: Jim Geraghty identifies what would be an Obama Bushism, if such things were being observed and tallied:"You know, it's always a bad practice to say 'always' or 'never.'" — Obama, speaking in AmmanI know another:"Only a Sith speaks in absolutes."But I never could stay awake through that movie. Hot Air finds another.The verbal gaffes must be because Obama is tired. I can accept that; traveling knocks the crap out of me, and Obama really is "only human". But I can't h … [Read more...]

The Obama-groupie journalists

The article pretty much speaks for itself:WASHINGTON:( By Jim Rutenberg) Senator John McCain's trip to Iraq last spring was a low-key affair: With his ordinary retinue of reporters following him abroad, the NBC News anchor Brian Williams reported on his arrival in Baghdad from New York, with just two sentences tacked onto the "in other political news" portion of his newscast.But when Obama heads for Iraq and other locations overseas this summer, Williams is planning to catch up with him in … [Read more...]

Pelosi: Impeachment back on the table!

Exxxxxxcellent!"This is a Judiciary Committee matter, and I believe we will see some attention being paid to it by the Judiciary Committee," Pelosi told reporters. "Not necessarily taking up the articles of impeachment because that would have to be approved on the floor, but to have some hearings on the subject."Pelosi added: "My expectation is that there will be some review of that in the committee." [...] One thing is clear, however — there will be no move to remove Bush from office, d … [Read more...]

Snap into shape, Vaginas!

Critical Times for Critical Thought

A few weeks ago the Senate Intelligence Report, written by the Democrat-majority committee was released and the Washington Post dared to point out that the report stated very clearly that all of Bush's "lied" leading up to the Iraqi war were actually "substantiated by intelligence."Some readers of the piece, clutching their truthiness to them the way Obama accuses the Midwest of clutching their guns and bibles (bibles, truthiness, we're not so different, after all, are we?) seemed immune to … [Read more...]
