Go ahead, impeach Bush; try him

So, Dennis Kucinich has introduced articles of Impeachment against President Bush.I think he tried this once before, didn't he? (Ah, I see that was about Cheney.)The blogs are ablaze with it, of course, Fausta may have been first out of the gate, and both Thomas Lifson and Rick Moran are looking closely at Obama's remarks about trying people for "war crimes."I sort of knew this was where it was all heading two weeks ago when Couric, Gibson and Williams got together for an early … [Read more...]

Chesterton & Lewis warn against tyranny

G. K. Chesterton's helpful assessment of fundamental liberty. By his measure, our liberty is indeed threatened."The free man owns himself. He can damage himself with either eating or drinking; he can ruin himself with gambling. If he does he is certainly a damn fool, and he might possibly be a damned soul; but if he may not, he is not a free man any more than a dog." - Broadcast talk 6-11-35Emphasis mine. Jay at STACLU has a great quote on a similar theme:“Of all tyrannies, a t … [Read more...]

Jeremiah Wright, Steinem & Primacy of Victimhood

Okay, got lots of emails from folks decrying the "racism of Barack Obama's pastor," Jeremiah Wright, in this video.I watched the video twice, and I don't know if I'm seeing racism. I think I'm seeing anger, some of it reality-based and quite justified, some of it politically expedient for emotional manipulation, and some of it just strange."Jesus was a poor black man who lived in a country and in a culture that was controlled by rich white people [Romans rich and Italian, therefore … [Read more...]

Michelle Obama is just Hillary redux

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...]

Hillary disenfranchising? Press does not care.

In Michigan yesterday, Hillary "won" by having her opponents basically thrown off the ballot (a move Barack Obama - it must be said - had used to his advantage earlier in his career).Seems to me Mrs. Clinton and Mr. Obama are "of a piece" in their willingness to do anything, no matter how underhanded, to get what they want. It would not surprise me at all to see a Hillary/Obama ticket being talked up down the road, and my that would be interesting to watch. Can you imagine these two … [Read more...]

“Illegals” hysteria & the place I can’t go

I had doctor's appointments most of the day, and while I was in the car I kept switching around on the radio. I pulled up Rush and couldn't listen more than a few minutes. What I heard was a disappointing, strange, paranoia-feeding rant on how the "moderate Republicans and Democrats in the Senate" have a deliberate plan afoot to "enlarge the number of victims and people who will need welfare services" so as to "enlarge government..."It's all a plot and a conspiracy, you see...nothing could … [Read more...]

DNC uses Bush’s PHYSICAL for fodder?

Really...this is pathetic. When you have to use the report on the president's annual physical to give a shrill yell, throw hate darts and play politics, then you might as well just give it up, get back into the sandbox and stop even pretending that you are grown-ups.ATTENTION DEMOCRATS: If you want to be taken seriously - at all - in the next two elections, then you must learn appropriate responses. In this case, the appropriate response to good news about the president's health is … [Read more...]

PA Lt. Gov does not cover herself in glory

Rather she covers herself in something else. Michelle Malkin has the just-released (FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE) letter-of-apology from Lt. Gov. Catherine Baker Knoll to the family of Marine Sgt. Joseph Goodrich, whose funeral the Lt. Gov crashed before declaring "this (State of PA's) government is against this war..."Michelle writes: ...Knoll has no plans to make herself available for public comment about her obnoxious crashing of Sgt. Goodrich's funeral. She will not hold a press conference. She … [Read more...]

Sliced and Diced by a ‘stay-home’ mom!

I love this. Remember just yesterday, or the day before, I linked to a blog post about the value of educating women who plan to stay home and raise kids?Well, take a gander at this piece in the Chicago Tribune, written by "Meg Kreikemeier, a stay-at-home mom and a former analyst for CNA Insurance". Heh.For so long, Democrats have criticized Republicans as the party of the rich, and they still do when discussing tax cuts, budget deficits and Social Security. However, Republicans have now … [Read more...]

Playing the Catholic card AND the Gay Card?

I noticed this yesterday on Ann Althouse's blog and I was really hoping it would just go away, that we wouldn't have to see the Democrats and some on the left once again bring themselves to the edge of something truly ugly by playing the "gay, gay, gay" card. But I should have known better. And this time, the left is going to really out-do itself, by the way, because they're not only going to whisper "gay," as they do often, they're going to do it while playing the Catholic card. That's … [Read more...]
