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...]

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...]

Evil & Formation -UPDATED

One of those days where there is too much to read, and all of it wounds either the psyche or the spirit, or one's sense of safety. Bear with me, if you will; I find I'm battling some sort of virus, thingy, which does not help.There are no conclusions I can draw, in any of these links, that you cannot draw yourself.But, overriding all of it is a startlingly strong sense of evil, galloping our way, in battalions.Let's begin on the purely material: This is a shocking graph.But no matter … [Read more...]

Brilliant Artists are Privileged

Now, this is a curious thing. The Rhetoritician makes the valid point that Hollywood wishes to excuse men like Roman Polanski from their wrongdoing, but will work to destroy men like Mark Foley for theirs.Recalling Orwell's Animal Farm The Rhetoritician entitles his piece Some are more Equal than Others.Looking at pictures from U2's big concert in DC last night, I am seeing a pattern emerge.I am a fan -a big fan- of U2's music. I still think Achtung Baby and Zooropa are two of the best … [Read more...]

Lib Blog: Afghan support was a political tactic

It's refreshing to hear the truth, even if the truth is a shameful one that played with the lives of our service people while politicians and pundits postured.An astonishingly honest assessment — one that I fear is accurate — from the lefty blog Hullabaloo:Escalation is a bad idea. The Democrats backed themselves into defending the idea of Afghanistan being The Good War because they felt they needed to prove their macho bonafides they called for withdrawal from Iraq. Nobody asked too many que … [Read more...]

9/11, Eight Years On

A longtime friend and blogger related feeling reluctant to write about 9/11 on this anniversary. "Everything just feels so tense and uncertain," this person wrote, "I'm having a hard time focusing on the anniversary, and hasn't everything that could be said about 9/11 been said?"I confessed to a similar feeling. On one hand, one wants to write, "never forget, and never again," on the other hand, one is almost tired of feeling the pain and the anger. It's almost like remembering my … [Read more...]

Equality of Opportunity or of Outcome?

Let's look some more at this piece by Jillian Bandes, on Obama's new "Chief Diversity Officer," Mark Lloyd.I was a bit snarky yesterday when I wrote of this newly-created office:Does it seem to you that the Obama administration makes up titles and offices the way Bluto made up new names for Animal House Pledges?“You’ll be…the Chief Diversity Officer!”“Why?”“Why the hell not?”It certainly does seem that the Obama administration is interested in creating a million little bureaucracies … [Read more...]

"Shut Up," he explained – UPDATED

Source<centerWrites Allahpundit: "It’s practically a taunt."Indeed, I find it breathtaking. The man is supposed to be the leader of the country, the president of ALL the people, not just the ones who agree with him, and he's basically over half the nation to just shut up and fall in line.In fact, the president and his White House have been so irresponsible this week, what with their, "punch back twice as hard" nonsense (good going, there, chief) and so blatantly authoritarian with t … [Read more...]

Protesting with Detachment, MLK-style -UPDATED

Early yesterday evening, I wrote:You know who could put a stop to the bad feelings arising in this country? President Obama, who is supposed to be the leadership. Just as Bill Clinton and Hillary Clinton backed off when they realized America was not into having their Healthcare taken over by the government, Obama could say, “you know, I’m moving kind of fast here, maybe we’ll shelve this for a while and concentrate more on putting people back to work, which is urgent.”Such a move would be an … [Read more...]

Obey-mian Representative Democracy

SourceI'll say this for Life Under the Obama Regime, the inclusion of communist-inspired propaganda art has certainly upgraded and enlivened political expression. This is much more captivating (and substantive) than, for example, the played-out Bushian beheadings and vampires. (H/T)Then there is the spreading Joker, which apparently has been collecting new captionsArt appreciation aside, does anyone remember the recent demonizing of corporate fellows who dared to take private jets to … [Read more...]
