Prom Queen of Love

Three beauties photographed by Carolyn PassGot this great story from reader Frank, who found it here.Never has the selection of a homecoming queen sent so many tears falling so freely.Kristin Pass, an 18-year-old senior with Down syndrome, became Aledo High School's homecoming queen Friday to a joyous standing ovation and the flutter of a thousand tissues on a remarkable night for an amazing young woman.Her grandfather, Dr. David Campbell of Corsicana, escorted her onto the field and … [Read more...]

ACORN, Media & the Angry Right

We're watching the press out-and-out lie in its reportage. We're watching YouTube censor what may negatively impact their man. Networks will sell 1/2 chunks of airtime to the Obama campaign, but will not run an ad by his critics. Ann Althouse notes that basic accurate transcription appears to be beyond the press' capability.No wonder the GOP rank-and-file are edgy, and angry. They know what "free speech" is. They've been gritting their teeth and respecting the first amendment for the last … [Read more...]

GOP: Hail Mary Pass or Go Home

I took a quick turn through the 'sphere and at my email and saw a lot of frustration from Republicans, who are getting fed up with the double standards that are standard for the media and the left.Yes, it's there; yes, it's every day. Yes, Gwen Ifill is a dreadful choice, a Obama-enthralled partisan moderating a debate, and she should be replaced. Go ahead, make the phone calls, make a stink - try to get her replaced. Whoever they replace her with will be just as "in the tank" so it seems … [Read more...]

Palin s/b "gangraped by black men."

I'm down with a fever and likely this will be my only post for the day; if I feel better later I will record and post Compline, but right now kind of out of it. And cranky.Just three thoughts.1) It seems like President Bush - who tried in 2003 to prevent the economic meltdown we're in today - has pulled everyone's asses out of the fire. He will get no credit for it. President Bush appears to be the last grown-up left in Washington, but he will get no props. Credit and props will go to … [Read more...]

Invading Palin's privacy – UPDATED

Remember in 2000, when Rick Lazio was running against Hillary Clinton for the NY Senate, and he walked across the stage to hand her a piece of paper and was instantly condemned as "threatening" and excoriated for "invading her space?"A lot of people regard that as the moment Lazio lost the race. People didn't like perceiving a woman as being "threatened." They did not like her "space" being invaded.Now the Obamaphiles - the angry, crazed, hate-filled part of the left who cannot understand … [Read more...]

Obama has a "troop-gate" – UPDATED

UPDATE II: Here is a long and anti-climactic denouement to this whole story. Bottom line: both the press and Obama need to be taken with a grain of salt. We should know that, by now. :::Yes, yes, yes, Sen. Barack Obama really did - while on his "Behold, It's Me World Tour" - interfere with American foreign policy and troop withdrawal negotiations in Iraq:The Obama campaign spent more than five hours on Monday attempting to figure out the best refutation of the explosive New York Post … [Read more...]

Psycho-Manipulation on Climate, Psychedelic!

Graphic via BeldarMy latest piece for Pajamas Media, entitled, Psychologists Want to Purge Your Brain of Un-Green Thoughts, is up and running; it looks at how the anti-establishment renegades of 1968 now want you, forty years on, to fall in line and conform to the "environmental crisis" mentality they've been so aggressively pushing:Forty years after enlightened baby boomers and academics decried conformity and told the world to ignore “the establishment,” to not kowtow to “the man,” to “rap … [Read more...]

Over Palin; not "hypocrisy," you never knew us – UPDATED

As Gov Sarah Palin is getting an actual fair shake in a NY Times piece on how she handles governing and motherhood (she seems to do it with aplomb), the Democrats have to deal with quotes like this from Gov. Palin, one which illustrates how far from reality are the media-caricatures of longstanding:She assured [her staff] she would not take much time off: she had returned to work the day after giving birth to Piper. “To any critics who say a woman can’t think and work and carry a baby at the sa … [Read more...]

Running Sarah Palin Thread of Hate & Doooom!

I'm liveblogging the RNC convention and the Giuliani/Palin speeches hereRegarding Gov. Sarah Palin, the press and the Angry Left remind me of those beetles in the film The Mummy - the pass over something in a swarm and it is destroyed and stripped bare...we must be reaching the climax of Palinsanity, or will do so tonight, because I don't see how this intense, unhinged hate can go much further. But haters always manage to surprise me...There is so much out there that this is going to be a … [Read more...]

Sew the Scarlet A for Sarah Palin! – UPDATED

Palin in March, "wearing her pregnancy suit"You know, my instinct is to not even address this crazy stuff, to just ignore it. But it's "out there," buzzing, so, I may as well jump in.The doyens of uterine politics have decided that what matters about Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin is not her politics, not her policies, but her periods.Like some old, suspicious grandmother from the middle part of the twentieth-century, Alan Colmes counted back on his fingers and decided that - not that it's … [Read more...]
