Sarah Palin is Alive! – UPDATED

Longtime readers know that, while there is much that I admire about Sarah Palin, I am still on the fence about any notion that she should run for president.My reservations stem in part from some of Palin's own moves, but it may be her base that really sours me on her; not even mild and constructive criticism, rendered with a dollop of sympathy can be endured by some members of Palin's over-protective base.I understand why they are overprotective; no politician in my memory has ever been … [Read more...]

Kagan not an automaton but…UPDATED

A morning email from a good friend:You predicted Bush would pick Bernard Kerik for Homeland Security (that didn't work out). You predicted Bush would pick Harriet Miers for the Court (also, ahem, didn't work out). You predicted Hillary would cry before the New Hampshire primaries in '08 (things...did not work out for her) and on In the Arena last week, you predicted Obama would choose Kagan. I think your successful predictions are like a kiss-of-death, and Kagan should be worried! Please … [Read more...]

"Fear is useless, what is needed is trust."

Pondering the possibility of America being "remade" under the auspices of a Health Care Non-Vote-Deeming, I found myself thinking of St. Patrick, and the conflict between the English and the Irish; the Irish famine and the longview of God, which we cannot see or understand.SourceMany in America -a distinct majority, if polls are to be believed- are against the Health Care reforms we call "Obamacare" and they're angry about the manner in which the Democrat-run Congress is trying to force … [Read more...]

Obama Executive Order & Interpol – UPDATED

I'm thinking that when Steve Schippert began his blog, which he calls Threats Watch, he never thought he would be tracking a threat from his own Executive Branch and Congress.Does that sound a bit out there? Yes, I worry that it does. But this Executive Order, which Obama quietly signed while the world was distracted by Tiger Woods and weather, sounds pretty out there, too:December 17, 2009, The White House released an Executive Order "Amending Executive Order 12425." It grants INTERPOL … [Read more...]

The Job Summit Theatricale

Oh, my goodness.President "Duality" Obama wanted his pointless but flashy "jobs summit" to be grounded in reality, not "at 30,000 feet." He wanted to hear "details" and "real solutions," but cautioned that nothing much would be changed by the "summit." He said the private sector was the only way we'd get out of this mess, but that the uninvited private sector is the problem, because small businesses are greedily looking after their own survival, rather than hiring more people that they'll … [Read more...]

Palin Press: Putzes in Print

Love Sarah Palin or not, one has to admit the press is so undone by her that they are both aggressive and passive-aggressive in their hate, and they betray themselves continually in all sorts of ways. They betray their snobbism; they betray their spitefulness, and most emphatically, they betray the fact that our "fourth estate" is populated mostly by perpetual adolescents.Our press, with a few exceptions, is largely made up of people who, at age 14, decided they were sophisticates who knew … [Read more...]

It is such a serious crisis…UPDATED

...that once again (as with the daisychain ad, and the "can I have a glass of water" ad) the left turns to exploiting children again.Let the children tell us how the earth is going to die, unless America gives her sovereignty away, laying it down on the altar of global warming climate change, and all the high priests of that sacrificial religion."We need YOU, President Obama, to go to Copenhagen!"As if Copenhagen is not already a done deal in Obama's brain.It's painful to watch. It's … [Read more...]

The 'Shut up' President Blames & Aims -UPDATED

On Drudge right now, the question Who To Blame for the massacre at Fort Hood?It was just so much easier when everything could automatically be blamed on Bush, wasn't it? Though I don't doubt we'll see Obamites and Media Minions try to blame Bush for Major Malik Hasan, in any way they possibly can.The guy to blame, of course, is the non-talking Major Malik Hasan, who should not be coddled.This White House has had a field day blaming Bush for everything they couldn't blame on the GOP, or … [Read more...]

Pelosi's Bunker Mentality

Barack Obama seems content to let Nancy Pelosi do whatever she wants. I guess he's the campaign guy and she's the actual govern-er? Clearly, he holds neither himself nor his partner, The Pelosi, to these promises which were, after all...just words.So, a few hours ago, I read this:As Steny Hoyer talks, a Republican aide reports that: "Dems are blocking access to their press conference. There is a list, and if you're not on it, you can't get through." The aide points out: "This is a … [Read more...]

Would he piss on an image of Obama?

Larry David found comedy fodder in piety on the latest episode of his series, "Curb Your Enthusiasm.'On the show's most recent installment, which aired Sunday, David urinates on a painting of Jesus Christ, causing a woman to believe the painting depicts Jesus crying. ... During Sunday's episode, David, who created, wrote and produced "Seinfeld," visits a bathroom in his assistant's home and splatters urine on a picture of Jesus. Instead of wiping it off, David leaves the restroom. Minutes … [Read more...]
