Going after Joe the Plumber & America w/ UPDATES!

To my way of thinking, Joe the Plumber - singing the psalm of the common man, and representing the views of the middle class and what we once used to call "the Silent Majority" - has completely terrified the left, the Obama camp and the press.And so...he must be destroyed. So what happens to Mr. Wurzelbacher for expressing his views?Reports in the mainstream media appear claiming that he is unlicensed (even though he doesn't need one as an employee of a business or as a contractor working on … [Read more...]

Presumption, Illusions & Reality

Apparently, the Obama - "they better not bring my wife into it" - Campaign has decided that it's okay to go after spouses, now - translate that: just John McCain's spouse. Confederate Yankee notes some out-and-out lying at the Washington Post.I'm sure the reporter just doesn't know how to um...investigate stuff, like that blogger does.Well, who has time to check facts when there is a victory party to plan or winnings to be collected 'way before the fact.The Obama team is sending the … [Read more...]

Dirty Bombs, Dirty Elections; a roundup

Okay, enough fun and games with the pie recipes - here's a roundup of everything I'm finding interesting today. A smorgasboard.Bill Ayers is just a really nice guy in the neighborhood.I personally think McCain gains nothing in going after Ayers - particularly not in this debate where, having challenged McCain to say something "to my face" - Obama will be loaded for bear and ready to shoot down any concerns with appropriate (and mild-sounding) spin. But I'm sure McCain - his sense of honor … [Read more...]

Vote fraud: The ACORN Breakdown

A few weeks ago, I emailed Jim at Gateway Pundit, who I recall having what seemed like hundreds of links to past ACORN bad-behavior, in terms of voter registration fraud, voter intimidation, vote supression (tire slashing on election day) and more, and I said, "you should put together one large post that has ALL of your ACORN links."He wrote back that it sounded like a good idea, and now he has an approximation of that up at Pajamas Media. I think he has even more links but had no more room … [Read more...]

Amen

Most pathetic email in a long time came from someone named Jessup, who was - I think - trying to antagonize me, by noting that I was posting on religion and "fluff" (I guess that would be the Prom Queen With Down Syndrome story) because I knew "my guy" was beat and the election was over, and therefore I was falling back on religion, my "crutch" because that's what stupid people like me need, a crutch.That was the gist of it, anyway.Except that McCain is not especially "my guy" and I've come … [Read more...]

Prom Queen of Love

Being Christ on the Streets

A very inspiring and humbling article:ROME (CNS) -- With her hair dyed an unnatural shade of red and a thin green shawl draped over her, Carmelite Sister Begona Arroya stands out among nuns in a convent overlooking St. Peter's Square.But when she is ministering in southern Spain to prostitutes from all over the world, she blends right in."I dress so I won't intimidate the women I need to reach," said Sister Begona, 41, with a smile. "I have no office, just a cell phone and a car."Good … [Read more...]

ACORN, Media & the Angry Right

We're watching the press out-and-out lie in its reportage. We're watching YouTube censor what may negatively impact their man. Networks will sell 1/2 chunks of airtime to the Obama campaign, but will not run an ad by his critics. Ann Althouse notes that basic accurate transcription appears to be beyond the press' capability.No wonder the GOP rank-and-file are edgy, and angry. They know what "free speech" is. They've been gritting their teeth and respecting the first amendment for the last … [Read more...]

The Word Going Forth…

In case you're wondering, the Great Big Continuous Public Bible Read instigated by Pope Benedict XVI is still going on, and they're up to Ezekiel 14. It's in Italian, but still awesome to check in on from time to time. There are musical interludes between books.I'm loving it. As I wrote here, this will bear fruit!It doesn't really matter if no one listens. Some will, some won't. The major portion of the Word will be read to no audience at all. But by the very act of reading it - of … [Read more...]
