Staggering bigotry of Kathleen Parker – UPDATED

After reading this execrable bit of bigotry and preening martyrdom by Kathleen Parker - who apparently has discovered that the magic formula for "instant media love" is "going maverick on your own tribe," - I am considering adding her to my list of Media Whores and Sad She-Clowns who - in excessive spurts of spirit brought on by sudden media praise - cross lines and go way too far.Parker, who had her right-wing, "Christianist" Conservative moments until she found her Smart-Kid-Inclusion sword … [Read more...]

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...]

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...]

Editor refuses to publish anything that would jeopardize election for O, and betting you dollars to donuts same is true at NYT, others.

Woman scolds press re Palin – UPDATED

Heh. I really hope someone got this on video:McCain in Scranton PA: The third question he took was from a well-spoken woman who first thanked McCain for picking Gov. Palin. Then she turned to the rear of the room (where the press are located) and called out shame upon you for your attack of Palin. She followed up this comment by asking where are the 30 investigators into [Obama crony William] Ayers.The chewing out actually got some coverage: 11:03 a.m. When asked about health care, Sen. … [Read more...]

Warnock: put down the sick, senile, elderly

"If you're demented, you're wasting people's lives -- your family's lives -- and you're wasting the resources of the National Health Service."So says Baroness Warnock, who has been advocating euthanasia in Britain for a long time is at it again.I'm too under the weather to write, but I address this troubled woman, when my brother was dying, in this piece:Our brother has lately gone quiet. He moans and coughs. When he does speak it is a word or two, soft and hoarse and largely … [Read more...]

Dems run away; McCain shows leadership

I'm sorry...my jaw is ON THE FLOOR at this headline: Democratic Congress May Adjourn, Leave Crisis to Fed, TreasuryThe Democratic-controlled Congress, acknowledging that it isn't equipped to lead the way to a solution for the financial crisis and can't agree on a path to follow, is likely to just get out of the way.Lawmakers say they are unlikely to take action before, or to delay, their planned adjournments -- Sept. 26 for the House of Representatives, a week later for the Senate.

Invading Palin's privacy – UPDATED

Remember in 2000, when Rick Lazio was running against Hillary Clinton for the NY Senate, and he walked across the stage to hand her a piece of paper and was instantly condemned as "threatening" and excoriated for "invading her space?"A lot of people regard that as the moment Lazio lost the race. People didn't like perceiving a woman as being "threatened." They did not like her "space" being invaded.Now the Obamaphiles - the angry, crazed, hate-filled part of the left who cannot understand … [Read more...]

Obama has a "troop-gate" – UPDATED

UPDATE II: Here is a long and anti-climactic denouement to this whole story. Bottom line: both the press and Obama need to be taken with a grain of salt. We should know that, by now. :::Yes, yes, yes, Sen. Barack Obama really did - while on his "Behold, It's Me World Tour" - interfere with American foreign policy and troop withdrawal negotiations in Iraq:The Obama campaign spent more than five hours on Monday attempting to figure out the best refutation of the explosive New York Post … [Read more...]
