Obama: "Not talking…is ridiculous"

My readers have better memories than I do. Today, I got this in the mail from an reader who asks to be identified as "A Product of Pittsburgh Steelworkers":I had written to you before the election about how then Candidate Obama would no longer talk to a television station in Florida because he didn't like some of the questions they asked Joe Biden. See your article Obama: Yes to Iran, No to WFTV from October 2008.But even I would never have imagined that he would carry this over to an … [Read more...]

An Exceedingly Interesting Round-up

You will like this round-up of links. No, seriously, you will; it is full of chewy, satisfying round-uppy goodness, and contains no artificial sweeteners, and I will fully resist the urge to fall into my cowgirl lingo of yore. Some religion, some politics, some gossipy stuff.Bookworm: is wondering if Obama is an atheist:Obama’s White Houses instinctively uses the same wishy-washy language atheists use: “My heart is with you.” “My thoughts are with you.” “I send you my wishes.” No prayer … [Read more...]

"How They Hated Bush" & other things

Someone sent this video to me with the comment, "illustrates how the press despised Bush. How they hated him!"Well, duh. Of course they did. They spent 7 years doing their very best to make sure that everyone else hated him, too, and yes, they succeeded. Not saying Bush's own errors didn't help it along, but the non-stop (sometimes untrue, frequently unfair and almost always unwarranted and disproportionate) pounding given Bush, 24/7 by every media outlet -news, books, sitcoms, films- … [Read more...]

Limbaugh, Jeb Bush & Reagan

Was moving around this morning and picking up Rush Limbaugh in the car. He had some interesting things to say. In talking about Obama's notion of what constitutes "sacrifice," Limbaugh intoned, (I am paraphrasing) "sacrifice is only sacrifice when it is voluntary. Otherwise it is compulsion."I've been saying that for a long time.There is an enormous difference between a few dozen people voluntarily giving up their worldly goods for communal living, and forcing people to participate in … [Read more...]

Nice Deb wants your dreams…

Taking a page from the left, Nice Deb is asking if anyone on the right is dreaming about President Obama (or, of course, Rush Limbaugh, his evil nemesis).Apparently, I am not the only "conservative" woman dreaming of Limbaugh, but our dreams are very different than the dreams of Obama. Not surprising.Frankly, after hearing the MSM pooh-pooh the brouhaha in the UK press over Michelle Obama's "touching the person" of Queen Elizabeth II, and daydreaming that the press had - just once - treated … [Read more...]

And now, the Poster!

I told you about my amusing Sandra Bullock/Rush Limbaugh dream.Another flashback - this time Sandra Bullock. It’s 10-12 years earlier and she is a smart reporter trying to get out of the shadow of a dumb-but-perky American Sweetheart NewsDitz. Gets a line on a way to infiltrate Rush Limbaugh’s workplace (which, being ten years ago, my brain put in NY) and figures an “insider” expose detailing Limbaugh’s maniacal management and dubious empire will get her noticed and make her America’s New “SMAR … [Read more...]

Bullock, Baseball, Limbaugh

You ever have one of those dreams that's so delicious and fun that you hate to wake up, and when you do, you think to yourself, "wow, that was GREAT! I want to finish that dream! I want to videotape that dream, so I can dream it again!"I had such a dream - just awoke from it (yeah, okay, I was sleeping in the middle of the day. My work was done, my insomnia never lets me get a good night's sleep and my husband was off on an adventure, so I took a nap! Sue me!)Anyway - this dream - I don't … [Read more...]

Rush, Obama and Charity

We all know there is no way President Obama will take up Rush Limbaugh's offer for a live debate on his radio broadcast.Or is there?In the comments section, Gayle (comment #21) made a brilliant suggestion: Why not urge Rush's tens of millions of listeners to pledge $10 or $20 each, to go to a charity of the president's choice, if he will debate?Of course, leaving the charity up to the president, may not make everyone happy. He may, for instance, decide have it all donated to ACORN, for … [Read more...]

Rush's Riveting Radio Today

Because he is all over the news (particularly since the Politico has uncovered a little WH plumbing operation in which he been systematically targeted by Obama's office), I tuned in to Rush Limbaugh for his opening monologue.Riveting. I'm not a regular listener, but it was amusing and amazing and altogether brilliant to listen to Limbaugh cordially invite the president (not Carville, not Begala, not Rahm Emmanuel, who Rush concedes "is very busy") to come on to his show and spend three hours … [Read more...]

Limbaugh and Viagra, now the kiddies snicker

Okay, so, Rush had Viagra in his bag and his doctor didn't prescribe it in his name because if you're Rush Limbaugh (or Bill Clinton or whomever) and you know you have a gazillion childish guns pointed at you - at all times - you'd rather not have some pharmacist blab in some internet forum that you're using Viagra, or herpes medicine or genital wart salves or whatever. Perfectly understandable.Sadly, now we'll be treated to a few days of people sniggering and making snide, adolescent jokes … [Read more...]
