Hey, whatever happened to Hillary, anyway? -UPDATED

“I am sick and tired of people who say that if you debate and you disagree with this administration, somehow you’re not patriotic, and we should stand up and say, ‘WE ARE AMERICANS AND WE HAVE A RIGHT TO DEBATE AND DISAGREE WITH ANY ADMINISTRATION!’”Do you think we could get Hillary to re-record that, and just change the words "not patriotic" to "a racist"?Meanwhile, here is Rep. Maxine Waters, who earlier this year got herself all worked up about the evil people with access to private jets, … [Read more...]

Condi Rice appointee kept Twitter going…

Very interesting story out of media bistro.When BayNewser heard that someone from the State Department had called Twitter to ask them to delay maintenance to allow Iranians to continue tweeting, we pictured some fusty old guy at Foggy Bottom in a rumpled Brooks Brothers suit and wayward spectacles.Imagine our surprise, then, when we learned that, instead, it was a 27-year-old whiz kid whose job is to advise the State Department on how to use social media to promote U.S. interests the Middle … [Read more...]

"New Eve" encounters her snakes?

Hillary Clinton sort of looking at Our Lady of GuadalupeOkay, I admit I'm being a bit snarky with the headline. I'm not really calling Hillary Clinton or Barack Obama "snakes" - I'm just having a little fun with scripture, and the whole notion that the two biggest abortion proponents in the country are having Marian encounters.If you are unfamiliar with the concept of Mary as The New Eve, there's lots of info out there, and a few lovely meditations by some of our nun friends, too.Anyway, … [Read more...]

From Email: Fairness, Life, Secrecy, Caroline

Not too much hate-mail, lately, which is a nice change. Someone from the left actually wrote that she appreciated how "fair" I was to Michelle Obama on her clothes.Well, thank you, I try to be fair. No one can be, all the time, but I would hope that that correspondent has been at least as "fair" to Bush once in a while in the past few years. What am I saying, I'm sure she has been! :-)THANKING YOU for your prayers: This military family writes to tell me that Beloved is finally home, and … [Read more...]

Friday Linkaround

Quiet today. After gabbing and watching videos through the night, we put Buster on a plane headed back to school early this morning, then went to mass and - since it was offered - took the opportunity to go to confession, and then came home and promptly fell asleep until the early afternoon. Can't remember the last time I've done that. Felt kind of good, actually!So, here is a link around to stuff you may or may not be seeing elsewhere. It's a long post, but stick with it; I don't think … [Read more...]

Don't let the psy-ops throw you – UPDATED

Election 2004 H/T GatewaypunditI'm getting a sense that some people are freaking out, out there, that it's three weeks to election and so it's time to hyperventilate.Of course that's not true. Three weeks is still a huge chunk of time in an election, and things turn on a dime. The whole point of the big "landslide" story is the press helping Obama out some more; it is meant to make you despair and not go vote. It's a game. While they're saying "landslide," and Charlie Gibson is acting … [Read more...]

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...]

Abortion Survivor on Obama's Vote

The way I understand it, the Infants Born Alive Bill was introduced to the IL Senate and Obama voted against it because he wanted it to have the same language as the Federal Born Alive Bill. When the bill was re-presented containing that clause, Obama voted against it again. So, given the chance, twice, to vote against infanticide, Obama voted for.He also lied about all of this earlier in the campaign, before admitting that he was lying.Obama has the most liberal voting record you can have … [Read more...]

Does Biden really want the Veep slot? UPDATED

STACLU shot this in an email asking, "what is Biden thinking?"Maybe Biden is thinking he does not want to be veep, after all. Let's face it, he's in a comfort zone. He's been in the Senate for a few decades; it's home. He likes his commute to Delaware - it's probably a peaceful part of his day - and he has his committees, his ways of doing things. For all that his political leanings and ideas are not in sync with mine, I've always had a soft spot for Biden, and I think perhaps he's not … [Read more...]

The Humbling: "The One" goes to Don Clinton

So, it appears that "The One" is going begging to Don Clinton, hat in hand:The One strides in confidently and extends his hand to The Don. The Don looks up, contemplates the proffered hand, and watches The One's smile fade as it is not shaken. The One retracts his hand, and tilts his head, comprehending, but not liking it. Still, he needs this meeting.Don Clinton nods slightly, and with a silky hand motions The One to take a seat. Don Clinton's blue eyes are grave, but there is a … [Read more...]
