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...]

Bang, Zoom! And other questions

Mark Shea, utterly disgusted with the press, and offended by the rank "truthiness" by which they and the government prefer to run, unleashes the dogs of hell: One thing you can give our media Chattering Classes: They are utterly consistent. After Major Nidal Malik Hasan opened fire on a roomful of defenseless people in Fort Hood, it was absolutely assured that we would immediately be told that this outrage had nothing to do with his Islamic faith and that it was not an act of terror. Then, as … [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...]

The shadow of the jackboot…

I have only just begun to read news about The Ghastly Mrs. Pelosi's machinations, or the single-mindedness of the president who flinches at the slightest criticism but seems not to care about the CIC part of his job, and the passing of the monster bill, and also about some of the troubling rumbles coming out of Europe. While reading, I had the overwhelming image of the shadow of a jackboot, poised just above our nation. Socialism is an opportunistic infection of the body politic. It occurs … [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...]

Penn Jillette & Tommy Smothers

I watched this video just before turning in last night, and awoke with it still in my head: For those who are unfamiliar with the story of Jillette and Bible, you can come up to speed here; Jillette movingly describing his encounter with an Evangelical Christian fan who loved him enough to give him a Bible. Although he is a professed atheist, Jillette understood and appreciated what the fan had done. In both videos, Jillette's willingness to be naked in his uncertainty and introspection is … [Read more...]

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...]

Does Obama know who we are?

The cruelest, most violent Samurai in Japan decides he wants to become enlightened. He bursts into the home of an esteemed Zen Master and demands that the Master teach him how to become enlightened. The Zen Master looks deeply into his eyes and says, "No. You are a dirty, vicious Samurai. I will not teach you." Enraged, the Samurai yanks out his sword and places it right at the Zen Master's neck. He hollers, "Do you have any idea who I am? I am the cruelest Samurai in the world. I can … [Read more...]

With your morning coffee…

Just in case you're wondering what it is you're drinking... Caffeine This is why the world produces more than 16 billion pounds of coffee beans per year. It's actually an alkaloid plant toxin (like nicotine and cocaine), a bug killer that stimulates us by blocking neuroreceptors for the sleep chemical adenosine. The result: you, awake. Water Hot H2O is a super solvent, leaching flavors and oils out of the coffee bean. A good cup of joe is 98.75 percent water and 1.25 percent soluble plant … [Read more...]

Will Tiny Israel Save the World?

“‘The intelligence that we had from the U.S. Olympic Committee and Chicago bid team was that it was very close and therefore well worth our efforts,’ said Valerie Jarrett, a senior White House advisor. ‘The message was that … a personal appeal from the president would make a huge difference.’” -- Source (H/T) Another president brought low by bad intelligence, even with a dazzling presentation. Okay, I'm joking. And for crying out loud, we should be able to joke about not getting … [Read more...]
