Here the three questionable conservatives are, tearing each other apart. McLame is disliked and distrusted in the party and will not survive beyond these quirky opening contests, but he's well-known and well-funded enough to damage Mutt Romney. Mutt is well-funded and is directing his ire towards Huckster-Bee , successfully painting him as a sanctimonious liberal and Huckster-Bee is firing back at Mutt in tandem with McLame pointing out what a four-flusher Mutt is when it comes to being a conservative. Its hard to imagine any of these guys emerging from this with any 'momentum'.
So the question is, can Rudy, dogged by almost daily hit pieces in the NYT and other terrorist-friendly media outlets come up with some kind of rousing theme that will capture the imagination of the primary voters?

|This Lib Is A Mirage|
|The media and a few inbred crackpots in a tiny isolated state are creating a frenzy for this dead-on-arrival candidacy. How many times has this moron betrayed us? I was watching CSPAN yesterday and there he was at some town meeting promising to "sit down with Harry Reid and work out our differences". What differences? They both support amnesty, high taxes, Federal Health Care, liberal judges, government control of the media, terrorists legal rights...two libs working together to destroy this country. This is a candidate for people who feel the W hasnt compromised enough with the libs. If there's a hot race that emerges coming out of Iowa all the rattle-brained Independents that McLame is counting on will vote in the Democraptic Primary and he will get the one or two percent of actual Republicans that are deluded enough to support him.|

|I dont think I've been so outraged in a long time (since the Gang Of Fourteen,perhaps?) that any Republican would even consider giving this jerk the time of day after his long list of betrayals. Have you been watching CSPAN and listening to the crap this guy says on the stump? At least Huckster-Bee is trying to pretend he's a conservative once in a while. McLame is the most inside-the-beltway liberal on the Republican side, no doubt about it.|

| McCain is a liberal? Come on, anyone who knows anthing about political science and McCain knows he is a conservative. Now, he isn't an ultra conservative, but he is conservative. Let's look at his positions:|
Abortion: strongly against it, though (like a large majority of Americans) favor embryonic stem cell research - conservative
Affirmative action: generally opposes - conservative
Gun control: opposes (not to the extreme that the NRA does, but he does most gun control laws)
Gay marriage: opposes (He does opppose the Federal Marriage amendment, but I would argue that is more conservative because he doesn't want the federal government to interfere).
Death penalty: Favors - conservative
Three strikes and you are out laws: favors - conservative
Health care - favors some government involvement, but opposes universal health care, which is moderate for America, but conservative compared to the rest of the Western countries)
Social Security - strongly favors partial privatization - conservative
Free Trade - strongly favors (rated 100% by the libertarian CATO Institute) - very conservative
Immigration - favors and supports amnesty (or pathway to citizenship, whatever floats one's boat). - liberal
Taxes and spending - unquestionable strong anti-pork barreler, but hasn't favored all tax cuts.
Foreign policy - very conservative
Patriot act - supports - conservative
Environment - favors more action than conservatives but less than liberals - moderate
Drug War - favors - conservative
So there we have it: 11 conservatives or very conservatives, 3 moderates, and l liberal. And of course, this is American standards, which is more conservative than the rest of the world. But of course, since this is America, I used American standards of politics.

|Manx response pt 1|
| Some of your points are directly contradicted by the CSPAN townhall meeting I saw McLame at yesterday (I think it had been recorded on Thursday).|
On all the social conservative issues that you mention (affirmative action, abortion, gun control, death penalty, three strikes) McLame takes the usual Lib line, he parrots the popular conservative position and then supports liberal judges (all of these issues are being decided by judges, not legislatures) who will look into our Living Constitution and find liberal solutions to all these problems without McLame receiving the anger from the base. Did the Gang Of Fourteen BETRAYAL mean nothing to you?
Is one of the most vocal Republicans in favor of using Global Warming baloney as an excuse to pile more regulations on the economy while opposing oil drilling in ANWAR and offshore and opposing nuclear power.

Taxes-- saw him on Hannity and Colmes last week when Rich Lowry asked him if he would still oppose Bush's tax cuts. After a Clinton-like rambling monologue the answer was YES.
Patriot Act- Supports ACLU lawyers for the ununiformed terrorist maggots in Club Gitmo and is outraged that we splashed water on Khalid Sheik Mohammed's face to get information from him.
This guy is a big lib. He has betrayed us again and again by making our former majority unworkable and preventing conservative bills from passing through the Senate.
His co-operation with Ted Kennedy and La Raza to hand illegal aliens welfare-state goody bags as they cross our ungaurded border is well known and needs no further comment.
Federal Health Care- Some toothless old fool asked a whining, sniveling healthcare question at that townhall meeting and McLame was happy to assure him that he would be reaching into everybody else's pockets to pay for whatever was necessary to create a government health monopoly, "we'll have to look at whether we'll have to make it manditory.."is a direct quote. LIBERAL TO THE MAX!
W's attempts to compromise with the Dems were bad enough. Let's not go with someone worse.

Well, *some* compromise would be necessary, since the Democrats will still control the Senate, and quite probably the House as well.
Even if the GOP hangs on to the White House, they will have to deal with a Democrat controlled Congress. Any hard-right Presidential proposal will be dead on arrival.
|Manx writes:||Sunday, December, 30, 2007 7:01 PM|
| I too saw him on Hannity and Colmes. I think he had a good anwser. He was saying that he has nothing against tax cuts, but he does have a problem continuing to increase spending not seen since the LBJ years. And I mentioned, McCain has always fought hard against wasteful spending, which a lot conservatives don't seem care about in a candidate (Bush comes to mind).|
Global warming and immigration - I already said he wasn't conservative on these issues.
As far the health care quote, I assume it is accurate and say that McCain wasn't referring to a government monopoly or program. It sounds like he was referring to possibly making private health insurance a requirement (like car insurance), which is Romney's stance. That idea, again, is not the same as a government run program, unless you consider mandatory car insurance a government program.
And as far judges and justices, McCain has voted for Bush's nominees: Alito, Roberts, Griffith, Brown, Pryor, Griffin, McKeague, Owen. He also voted for Gonzales, Ashcroft, Chertoff, Negroponte, and BOLTON.
Gitmo - I certainly respect McCain's position on torture. This is a man who was tortured for years in Vietnam. So if there is anyone who has earned the right to object to waterboarding and other acts that some describe as torture. It is John McCain! He would know what torture is!

|If there is a national campaign and the Republicans make the case that there are no Democratic moderates, that a vote for ANY Democrat is a vote for higher taxes,for total Federal control of schools and hospitals and defeat and retreat in the War On Terror than we could regain control of both houses of Congress. We cant win in a district by district fight but a national theme of conservatism would win the day. I live in California and you should have seen it when Gov. Gray Davis signed a bill to issue drivers licenses to illegal aliens.This supposedly liberal state rose up and threw him out with no help from the Republican Party! Barbara Boxer could be beaten the same way if the Republicans had any guts or imagination and would stop yammering about guns and abortion. Low taxes and failed government are what people want to hear and we should be shouting it loudly.|

|Making health insurance mandatory creates a huge beurocracy to monitor compliance...big savings there. And with all nationalizations its just the first step. Its the government assuming responsibility to make decisions that were formerly made by individuals. I have lived in a country were the government made all health care decisions (UK) and believe me it is a nightmare. The federal government will do the same thing to the health care system that they've done to the public school system; a long series of small steps will rob localities of any choices and put effective decision-making into the hands of the central government. Look at the schools. Were they made better by federal intervention. That is why McLame is a liberal...he believes in Big Government.|

Today Chris Dodd couldnt take it any more. The moronic statements of his fellow Dems running for the presidency concerning the Bhutto assassination presented too tempting a target. The best was Bill Richardson, who calls for the removal of Musharraf (as though he was some hired flunky with less tenure than a unionized elementary school teacher) and the formation of a 'Unity Government'. Oh, how groovy and wonderful! Of course the leaders of the mobs of the psychotic, unemployed young hooligans who are currently raging in the streets and tearing the country to pieces and the turbaned Imams that regularly send deluded psychopaths to set off bombs in crowds of innocent civilians will not be invited. NICE PEOPLE ONLY! Just like we're only inviting the NICE Palestinians to the Peace Conference over there. You see, among nice people diplomacy always works according to the Liberal Code enacted by the UN Council On Niceness in their Niceness Protocols.
So we've been subjected to one stupid statement after another from this pack of Dem idiots which has amply demonstrated their total unfitness for office. Her Thighness once attended a conference and breifly met Bhutto so we should bow down to her mighty EXPERIENCE!
Dodd is actually the most capable candidate running on the Dem side. Of course, as a life-long lib he's been on the wrong side of just about every issue but he's not dumb enough to believe that the homicidal maniacs in Al Qaeda are going to sit back while some US-sponsored unity government squabbles over cabinet posts. All these dimwitted Dems have been saying that there is no War On Terror, that its just a bumper sticker for the neo-cons to scare everybody. SURPRISE!
Neo-lib Condi and the panty-waists at the State Department leaned on Musharraf to make some kind of deal with an incompetent socialist woman (in a Muslim country,oh how modern!) and the Pakistanis were just going to get the news when their copies of the New York Times were delivered at the madrassah. Pakistan is a showcase for failed attempts at Democracy. The country is inhabited by mobs of poverty-stricken, angry, young bloodthirsty thugs, drunk on Koranic calls to violence. Primative savagery is the order of the day. But this is the liberal MO; pretend things are the way you think they should be and then react with shock and surprise when it blows up in your face. Eight years of the Clinton foreign policy paved the way. Talk, talk, talk and talk some more... but only with the Right People.
I cant believe that anyone would vote to entrust our national security to any member of these Liberal Loser Posse.

Look back a century to the British Empire. Well-run, well-ordered, everybody behaving nicely. The emerging disease of Socialism, championed by upper-class egalitarians and genius professors at Cambridge and Oxford did away with the 'horrors' of colonialism and promoted the idea of self-determination. The naive sons of the tribal chieftains were shipped off to a European education in determinist, utopian ideals and returned to take over leadership of their countries in the Euro-Bug Out from the colonies that occurred in the forties, fifties and sixties.Since then the former well-run European colonies have been plunged into a nightmarish bloodbath of chaos and repression that would have been unimaginable a century ago. Every few years we're treated to a Rwanda-type massacre perpetrated by a pack of angry savages, freed from any civilized restraint, on their helpless neighbors. Uganda, Zimbabwe,Somalia, Tadjikistan, Indochina ... the list is endless.
Now its Pakistan that we will add to the list; a supposedly more modern nation, one with nuclear weapons. But down in the streets the ignorant, violent crowds, drunk on Koranic suras, urging blood and vengeance and egged on by their verminous power-mad imams are unleashing anarchy and destruction. Its hard not to wish a Taliban-like regime on these primitive savages, with all the mass starvation and horror that would certainly bring; indeed how can we apply our purely subjective Western values to the quaint native customs of butchery and mayhem?
Can we now start building nuclear power plants and drilling for oil domestically so we're not so dependent on this unstable region for oil? Can we start criticizing the murderous leaders of the ISLAMIC mobs, and get a lot more trenchant with our criticisms of Islam in general?
If we dont dump the totally erroneous idea that all religions and ethnic customs are subjective and beyond serious scrutiny we will be defeated by the monsters that are happy to list and exaggerate our faults and call for our destruction. As Pakistan crumbles into chaos our position in Afghanistan will become untenable, condemning those poor people to a returning Taliban, eager for vengeance. As Pakistan crumbles millions of Pakistanis will die of brutality or starvation in a Somalia-like anarchy. As Pakistan crumbles nuclear weapons will fall into the hands of our sworn enemies, enemies who have shown contempt for their own lives and the lives of their people. I dont see India sitting still for that, or China letting India take action without responding. Iran will feel the immediate need to nuke up to protect itself from the crazies next door. The assassination of Benazir Bhutto, a fool mislead to her destruction by her rave reviews in the Western media and her assurances by the always lame and misguided Condi that the US was dumping Musharraf (our only reliable friend) and would assist her in her grab for power (a worse mistake than demanding that the Venezuelan military release Hugo Chavez and stand down in their 2001 coup attempt).
This has the potential to be another 1914-style debacle.
Don’t you understand what I’m tryin’ to sayHAPPY NEW YEAR!
Can’t you feel the fears I’m feelin’ today?

So the headline on Drudge this morning is an LA Times piece about how Madame Hillary and Co. are blowing through their Iowa appearances without allowing questions from reporters or the Great Unwashed. It must be really bad if the LA Times is complaining, they are usually the most compliant Clinton stooges in the media. In fact, a sardonic comment I attempted to post on the comment board was refused (insufficiently reverent, I suppose).
But of course she wont answer questions. The last time she tried to answer a question in the Philadelphia debate marked the beginning of a terrifying (to her) slide in the polls, from which she has not recovered. Mrs. Clinton can only win if certain questions are never asked; immigration, her documents from the White House years, any specifics about her Amazing Snake-Oil Health Care Miracle, the giant tax increases she has in store, Chicom bundled donations... there's no telling what people will ask if you give them the chance. The last thing she wants to do is turn into Richard Nixon in drag as Phyllis Diller like she did in Philly. So let's stick to the soothing platitudes, blame everything on George Bush and KEEP SMILING!

Now, however, we have to live with the aftermath. Pakistan's co-operation is absolutely vital in the war against the Taliban and Al Qaeda in Afghanistan. Instability and chaos benefit the Islamonazis greatly. Pakistan falling into the hands of a hostile government would be the defeat of our efforts and would lead to the reimposition of the nightmare rule of the Taliban on the long-suffering Afghans. It could lead to the radicalization of Pakistan which would be a menace to our ally India and also cause our enemy Iran to acquire nukes quickly as a defence against militant Sunnis with nukes. The region will have moved much closer to nuclear war. Thats the worst-case scenario. Lets see who gets blamed for this and what the political results will be.
The obvious culprits are the Islamofascists but there is another player who benefits mightily from this horrible deed...Nawaz Sharif. He was the one that sanctioned the Pakistani nuke program and was a mentor of AQ Khan, who helped get the North Korean and Iranian nuke programs up and running in the 90's. Musharraf took power after Sharif tried to kill him by refusing an airplane with a couple of hundred passengers (one of which was Musharraf) permission to land. He is a conniving, corrupt and devious man and he is a long step closer to regaining power with Ms. Bhutto's death. Sharif is capable of having made some kind of deal with the Islamocrazies to further that end.
I dont have any way to support this speculation with evidence. It is based on past actions and the fact that Sharif will use this incident to seize power and thus is its greatest beneficiary.

So Iowa is encased in ice and howling with wind. One of the Republicans should take out ads with lots of palm trees promising the freezing residents of Iowa that he'll build more coal-fired power plants so that Global Warming will make that frozen chunk of prairie habitable in the winter. If the blizzardly conditions exist on the evening of the Hawk-Eye Caucii that will make all of these months of polling and solemn wisdom from the media mean nothing. The only people looney enough to go out in weather like that will be Kook-Sin-Itch and Fascist Paul supporters, giving a result that will make the media go bananas. Most likely nothing even remotely that cool is going to happen. But it does leave us to analyze, with what we know, who has the best shot of the people considered 'serious' candidates.
McLame will NEVER be the Republican nominee. He might save face with a miracle 30% in a New Hampshire Primary where Independents can cross the line ( way less likely if the Dem race is hot) but he betrayed the base too many times to ever be popular.
Huckster-Bee has a lot of baggage... not the least being that no one relishes voting for a Man From Hope, at least on the Rep side. He is also dogged by a liberal record of governance and an excessive reliance on religion, which makes a lot of people nervous and locks him out in every blue state. However, he does have that gift of the gab that former governors of Arkansas seem to be blessed with and has to be considered a player until he hits a reef, which I think he will do.
Mutt Romney suffers from that annoying, smug, pasted-on smile and a tendency to say really stupid things ("My son served his country by working on my campaign"...). His liberal past is a big drawback. He's now been hard at it for months and has very visibly NOT caught fire. Why would anyone vote for this guy? His fifteen minutes are just about up.
So if those three are peaking right now what is left? Rudy and Fred.
Rudy has a long record of conservative governance and standing up for conservative issues in the public arena but is distrusted and disliked by the flyover country red-staters as a fast-talking, pro-abortion New York City dude. He's rolled the dice that no one will emerge from the first bouts with any momentum and that big victories amongst blue-state Republicans can put him across. He has more appeal to swing voters than any other Republican and even a state like California could be in play in a Rudy candidacy.
Quiet Old Fred. A very likeable place for Stop Rudy votes later in the process...or stop whoever it is that's ahead. He's everybody's second choice. Can you win with that?
I think Giuliani has the winning strategy. Of course it goes without saying that I will support whichever of these guys gets the nomination. Even if Obama is not as much of an immediate menace as the Clinton Crime Family the results of either of their misguided policies would be national disaster.
Sunday, December 23, 2007
The wave of publicity in the last week or two has been so strong in favor of Huckster-Bee that one would think that there was some big tidal wave of love for this unknown Baptist ex-governor of everybody's second favorite state. Did you know that a guy that is so smart that he can manipute the weather once described another former governor of Arkansas as , "The greatest President ever to serve our nation." That's the granite from which former governors of Arkansas are carved. To say that you're a former governor of Arkansas means something to every conservative. Could we feel comfortable voting in an election between a former governor of Arkansas and the wife of a former governor of Arkansas?
Even the curious absence, well scarcity, of pro-Huckster-Bee supporters on conservative blogs didnt really mean much, although strangely many of the people who identify themselves as Christians were still posting and were not raging Huck fans by any means.
Still the media hoopla (accompanied by narrowly taken polls where the margin of error made them absolutely meaningless) makes the guy look like a player.
The Huckster just narrowed his own chances, however, by sending his people out to pick a fight with Rush Limbaugh. I was listening to Rush Friday morning and was soon smiling broadly. It seems that The Huck has hired Ed Rollins, a notorious idiot, and that Rollins and some unidentified person were spreading canards attacking Rush. This was utterly stupid. Most conservatives had only vaguely heard of Huckster-Bee for a few weeks and some even blame Rollins for being a part of the Perot fiasco that elected BJ and the Gang, but we all know Rush VERY,VERY well. If the Huck-man and his paid stooges were conservatives they would know this. Bye-bye Huckster-Bee. You had the chance to make the sale but now you have a cogent, passionate conservative (the voice of conservatism) who has made the case that you are not one of us, but a sleazy, Perot-like liberal former governor of Arkansas. You cannot win the Republican nomination after what Rush said about you. He went straight to the overwhelming feeling in the Grass Roots; no more lying crooks, no more phony conservatives. The stakes are too high.

Cast your mind back....
How many times in the Golden Decade (the real gay Nineties!) did we think the Clintons were finished. Bimbos Erupted, Chicoms were scurrying across the White House threshold with baskets of cash and leaving with missle technology tucked in their Mao jackets, billing records were found where they shouldnt be, land fraud, looting an S&L, trumped-up travel office charges; these guys made Al Capone look like a legal neophyte with their successful cover-ups and evasions. They survived it all. They repeated every lie so loudly and through so many pet media outlets that their easily confused constituents retreated from politics and enjoyed Newt Gingrich's fiscal policies (aka The Clinton Legacy).
But all those frustrating arguments that we all had with our liberal friends are now bearing fruit. Women who were forced to defend a 56 yr old boss having sex with a 22 yr old intern and then siccing his wife's Bimbo Eruptions team on her were on board for the agenda but they knew the truth deep down. I think every decent Democrat knew... they just disliked the Republicans more. Now they can choose to turn to the 800 pound gorilla in the room and say,"Go!" I think they will. Thank God.

Bison would continue grazing and munching their cud while a few yards away hunters were blithely killing their herd-mates. Thats the mentality of people voting for Democrats, hoping they'll tax someone else into bankruptcy. How stupid do you have to be? People in places like New Jersey and New York havent yet figured out that their states are being devastated and depopulated by these Socialist creeps. California (my home state) isnt that bad YET but its getting there. Are we all living so much better since the government takes so much more? Actually the headline in the LA Times usually reads BUDGET SHORTFALL REQUIRES DEEP CUTS IN SERVICES AND TAX HIKES. I'll bet New Jerseyites have read that one before, too. Now states like Nevada and Virginia are plagued with morons fleeing high taxes who move to low tax states and vote Democrat. If the Republicans made some noise and attempted to link voting for Democrats with your taxes going up instead of trying to match the Dems' giveaway programs with ones of their own we might win a few elections. Has the feckless bi-partisanship of W so debilitated the party that they are unable to step back from the 'targeted district' strategy that they cant run on a national theme? When Tip O'neill said that 'all politics are local' he was talking about the strategy that put the current system in place. A change means that politics have to be made national. Vision, taking some risks, leadership...

After several years of the Iranians bragging about their bomb program, stonewalling the European negotiators and suffering sanctions as a result it doesnt make any sense to think that they werent developing nukes all along. This is what the Soviets used to call Disinformation. Fathead fellow travelers are fed false information that is released as though it was independently arrived at. The current liberal calf-love for Islamic extremists make this NIE (written by three anti-war liberals in the State Department)a clear candidate for the 'disinformation' label. Why are we deluding ourselves? The Bush Administration's timid intimations that they are going to take some active measures are about as believable as this intelligence estimate. Why arent they calling for free elections and human rights in Iran and supporting the opposition? We should be actively drilling for oil (offshore and ANWAR) and building nuclear power plants to lower the price of petroleum and undermine this regime and also Putin and Chavez.

At about that moment, a female guard with a drawn handgun turned a corner and walked toward the gunman and yelled "Surrender!" Bourbonnais said.
The gunman pointed a handgun at the woman and fired three shots, Bourbonnais said. She returned fire and just kept walking toward the gunman pressing off round after round.
The female guard fired off about a dozen shots.
After the gunman went down, Bourbonnais asked the woman, who has only been identified as a volunteer security guard with the church, how she remained so calm and focused.
Bourbonnais said she replied:"I was asking the Holy Spirit to guide me the entire time."
I'll fess up. I live in Los Angeles and work in the film industry. I've only ever been inside of a church during a wedding or a tour of Europe. I dont really know anybody who goes to church. The general impression held by the people around me about Flyover Country Christians is that they go to church heavily-armed praying for a chance to 'Get In Touch With The Holy Spirit' and empty a full magazine into one or more of their fellow Christians. The tragedy of this is that it occurred during the Writers Strike and the forced hiatus of the Daily Show. But dont worry, the stereotype of the nutty well-armed Christian will emerge to stalk the national stage in spades if someone like Huckabee wins the nomination. If he got it there would be an immediate flood of cartoon caricatures of Christians in the media (this one just writes itself).
It turns out that the crazed shooter was so nutty that he had been kicked out of several Christian youth groups and had developed a raging hatred for the people who had rejected him.
Also, what kind of a gun did Jeanne Assam bring to guard a suburban church? Twelve shots?
Regular handguns dont have twelve shots in their clip. Was she packing an Uzi or a Tech-9?
What kind of a church was this? The pastor was involved in cocaine trafficking with the local band of Crips so that he needed some major security with some real firepower? Like I said, I dont go to church but I went to a friend's daughter's confirmation a couple of years ago and didnt notice any well-armed security guards. Is it normal to have them?
Whatever it was, you can expect a flood of cartoon caricatures of gun-totin' Christian zealots if religion stays on the front-burner in the Republican discourse. This Robo-Cop Jesus Version is good enough to scare the shit out of the anti-gun Oprah-worshiping soccer broads in the general election if Huckster-Bee pulls it off.

We've been hearing a mass snivel from the liberals in Congress and the media for two years now about the dastardly plot to reveal Valarie Plame's identity as a 'CIA Agent' that has been hatched in the bowels of the evil Bush Administration. No facts have been allowed to intervene. That the whining skank Plame and her half-wit leftist husband were liars on the scale of the Clintons (!) didnt make any difference. The fact that Plame wasnt a covert agent didnt matter. The fact that the slimey couple came to public attention during a ham-handed attempt to undermine US policy with lies didnt matter. The fact that the leaker was linked to Colin Powell, who is nursing a grudge that he was 'forced' to go along with the invasion of Iraq and had no connection with the administration didnt matter. No, for two years we were treated to the mantra, "A Covert Agent Put In Jeopardy By Dick Cheney! Bush Lied! Bush Lied!" The concern for the secrecy of covert agents dripped from the libs, even as they published detailed information about top-secret covert operations against the terrorists on the front pages of The New York Slimes and the Washington ComPost and other terrorist-friendly newspapers.
Now, however, the Doublethink Worm has turned. The same libs that were valiant in the defense of Valerie Plame want the videotapes of interrogations of fine upstanding members of the world community like Khalid Sheik Mohammed so they can leak them onto You-Tube and publish the names of the actual covert agents that conducted the interrogations in Time Magazine. Little Dick 'Our troops are no better than Nazis or the Khmer Rouge' Durban is leading the charge. These losers want to help their terrorist allies again with names and images to be trumpeted in Al Jezeera and MSNBC and other terrorist media outlets. Oh, the sorrowful look on Keith Overbite's face as he opines against the brutality of the Bushlied Criminals, violating the rights of these poor, innocent souls.
Now, the fact is that Al ACLU is taking the terrorists' attack to the enemy in the form of a case presented to the senile half-wits (the liberal side) of the Supreme Court. These geniuses are well-protected by security police so they feel comfortable gambling with the safety of the insect-like citizenry that scurries past their exalted legal selves every day. Is the safety of the nation and the security of its citizens a Constitutional point? Well, lets see, they put it in the Preamble, before everything else, as a defining principle that guided the whole rest of the Constitution but obviously there's an Emanation Of A Penumbra in our Living Constitution that entitles our bloodthirsty enemies to be treated with the same legal rights as a shoplifter at WalMart.
But back to the whining, sniveling Senators; every one on the Democratic side with a long history of stabbing our foreign policy and our troops in the back. They are facilitated in doing so by a President who seems so averse to confrontation that he has abandoned every principle of conservatism in the name of comity; a fake comity with people who daily attack his policies and person. If the Republicans can pull an electoral victory out of their hat next November it will only be because the megaphone has been seized from the Traitorcrats and used against them.

Oprah is everything Hillary Clinton is not; she's smart, she's relatively honest, she has a warm personality that people connect with and she can answer unscripted questions. And now she's hawking Obama to her credulous millions. Hillary's response to this electoral disaster, to dragoon her long-suffering daughter and her aged mother to join her in a photo tableau that snarls family values like a Rottweiler, lacks a certain, shall we say, sincerity. Where's Bill, one might ask?
Oh Oprah, rid us of these pestilential Clintons and I'll take back every, snidey mean thing I ever said about the vacuous half-wits who follow you into throes of uterine hysteria. I'll be on the commission that builds your monument. Let Her Thighness sit stewing in her townhouse as she watches Obama campaign this summer and fall, a forgotten Junior Senator from New York.
What a lovely image!
In a media interview posted online, Young also quipped that Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Rodham Clinton has her husband behind her, and that "Bill is every bit as black as Barack."
"He's probably gone with more black women than Barack," Young said of former President Clinton, drawing laughter from a live television audience.
This is why Andrew Young was so fond of Strom Thurman, Strom actually sired a couple of black children, which makes him what? Blacker than Clinton? Her husband is behind her? What a picture of sleaze and greed for power this paints. Andrew is so danged proud that Billy Goat doesnt discriminate when he orders his security detail to pluck some babe out of the audience he's bustin his buttons! We're all happy slaves on the Clinton Plantation and us lowly servants can chuckle amongst ourselves that Massah Bill cant keep his pants zipped.
What an appalling thought, that people are dumb enough to ignore this moral decrepitude that has embraced our political system. Its not the politicians who are responsible. When the Clints and their foul Posse of liars turned the Impeachment debate from Obstruction Of Justice to Oral Sex the country just shrugged its shoulders, no problem there. But have you ever thought why the Clints can issue 1000-page ghost-written tomes, speak almost non-stop for thirty years and in the end have absolutely nothing to say? No quotes emerge except, "It depends on what the meaning of 'is' is." or "I do not know how the billing records came to be found in my office". Its because they are empty appetite, the political version of the four-hundred pound fatty that cant stop eating. More and more a reflection of our mentally obese society...Dont wait, dont think of the future consequences, GRAB IT NOW!
Now the political version of Stepin Fetchit, Andrew Young, says Bill is more black than Obama because he likes to screw black women. Yassah! Civil Rights and Feminism rolled into one. And the white upper middle class Dem voters will smile and lap it up until the day the Bush tax cuts expire and the Rangel tax bill hits and they realize that their incomes have been effectively confiscated.

When fervid Born-Again Christians run on the social issues the Democrats win. Huckster-Bee's skin-crawling religious maneuvers might appeal to the anti-Mormon intolerance of hard-core Christian voters but there is another, bigger intolerance that stalks the land, one which I and many other fiscal, national defence and foreign policy Republicans share; an intolerance for excessive Bible-banging by political hacks to garner votes. In California (my home state) the hard-core zealots, by making issues like abortion, Creationism and the right to own a houseful of machine guns the front burner issues have turned this formerly Republican state into a clone of Oregon or Massachusetts. When The Governator put four ballot referendums up for a vote that would have hamstrung the liberals and changed the face of politics in this state the Bible crowd and the Border Psychotics stayed home nursing their one-issue grudges and showed Arnold that he had to move to the left to get re-elected. Huckster-Bee or Mutt Romney (with all their fake piety) at the head of the ticket will be an electoral disaster for Republicans all over the country. The Bible-Bangers will get the Stalinist Supreme Court and public funding for abortion that they deserve.

I think its about time we started talking about Obama's Kindergarten Manifesto, that Mein Kampf of power-mad megalomania. And now we find, from impeccable sources who requested anonymity, the Third Grade declaration of his presidential candidacy, which makes every penny he's earned since then a violation of campaign finance regulations. Thank God, er I mean Goddess, that someone as wise as The Smartest Woman In The World has access to everyone's files so She can make us aware of the scheming cockroaches that seek to take away the Anointed Presidency that belongs to Her By Right. Who else could have dealt with the hostage situation in NH as masterfully as She did? She watched it on TV even while the Chinese food delivery boy donated $2500 to her campaign. That she could remain calm while expendable campaign workers were menaced by a psychopath hundreds of miles away shows Her ability to deal with Iran. Ahmadinajad was quoted as saying, "After New Hampshire we must recognize a powerful new America!" Thank You Hillary.

The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals on Dec. 4 will again hear a challenge by Michael Newdow to the Pledge of Allegiance and its phrase "under God." Newdow won his prior lawsuit against the pledge until the Supreme Court, perhaps to avoid public outrage in the 2004 presidential election year, tossed out his case on a procedural technicality.
Hillary might make a big fuss about her spiritual journey but her judicial appointments and membership in the ACLU speak the truth. The truth is that a vote for ANY democrat in ANY election is a vote to make Christianity illegal. The Dems pretend to be religious the way they pretend to support capital punishment; as soon as they get the chance they nominate judges that will legislate their true agenda from the bench. Do you think Newdow and his ilk are going to stop at getting the word 'God' taken from the pledge? Someday he'll be driving down the street and his poor little child will be terrorized by the sight of that ugly, menacing CROSS on the top of that church right there on the street. To protect our children can we do anything less than remove that threatening eyesore? Remember, the most moderate, conservative-sounding Dem politicians vote to approve these judges so dont tell me that Jim 'Mellon-Head' Webb (VA) or Ben-lyin Nelson (NB) are different than Leahy or Schumer, because they're not.

Today Charles Krauthammer wrote a column discussing how the passage of time has vindicated the morality of George Bush's stand against unlimited Federal funding of embryonic stem cell research. I'm no ethical expert, if test-tube formed embryos can save the lives or health of actual humans that's fine with me and we should note, for the record that we are talking about the wisdom of subsidizing this research with taxpayer's money, not making the research illegal.
The real ethical issue is the use of this issue for political purposes. Global Warming redux. Junk science mascarading as a messianic save-the-world reason to reject free markets and place all your hope in total government. Unless you turn your life over to the Wise Bureaucrats the giant tidal wave generated by the consumer-melted polar ice caps will wash over you as you sit crippled by Parkinsons disease in your wheelchair, unable to save yourself when you're konked by a starved polar bear as the tsunami hits.
I seem to remember the Democratic convention in 2004 where George Bush was blamed for keeping Christopher Reeves a helpless cripple by his moralistic niggling. The crippled would rise from their wheelchairs, Parkinsonson's victims would have fulfilling new lives repairing watches with their rock-steady hands, the formerly deaf would write new symphonies of praise to the noble embryos that gave their lives so others might hear, the blind would be blessed with sight!The morons that infest my eternally bankrupt home state of California, led by the Jerkinator, passed a THREE BILLION DOLLAR embryonic stem cell ballot measure to counteract the evil meanness of those Wascally Wepublicans. Curiously, Evil Big Pharma, always greedy for more of the hard-earned cash from the pockets of the sick and crippled seems to lack the same enthusiasm for this miracle cure for everything that is evinced by the geniuses who have managed to weasel their way into elective office. Apparently swindling half the voters in your district qualifies you to cure all disease and fix the weather. So now we've had years of lavishly-funded embryonic stem cell research, in fact over-funding political fad diseases like E-Bola have starved funding for the new anti-biotic resistant strains of bacteria that are actually killing thousands of people. So where's the cures you morons? This mob rule in science may or may not be immoral but it is certainly stupid.

I just read an essay by Donald Lambro about how the richest districts in the country are becoming increasingly Democratic. The traditional elite rich universities turned into Socialist indoctrination camps in the sixties and a half-century of propaganda is showing results. The managerial class wants stasis and stability and thats what the Dems offer. None of this Free Enterprise entrepreneurial crap for them, they've got theirs already. But now the hungry state is looking for new sources of revenue. The poor and working class have either been freed from all income taxes or handed EITC subsidies and the philosophical jump to 'tax the poor' is too much for the Party That Cares. Anyway, non-income taxes (sales, property and excise) are already squeezing the lower orders to the breaking point. Ah, you lovely fat yuppies, sitting smug in your vacation homes with your plump 401k's, its time for you to enjoy the fruits of your own misguided rhetoric. May the tax writers show you no mercy if you manage to inflict a Democratic victory on us this year and the tax collectors even less. After all, its for the Children!
I forgot to add my call for the immediate confiscation of the wealth of Warren Buffet, Bill Gates,George Soros, the Ford, Rockefeller, Keck and Carnegie Foundations. Can we afford to do anything less in a country where 47,000,000 people dont have health care? Wow! This left-wing larceny thing is fun! HILLARY IN 08!
The Clinton News Network strikes again. Another appalling debate where CNN picked questions from YutzTube. The questions were either from Dem campaign workers or badly lit troglodytes in trailers with Confederate flags in the background. They spent a long time on that big issue Gays In The Military, using a Clinton Campaign Advisor to ask the question and then handing him the microphone to make a speech (they flew him from California to Florida to attend and then denied that they knew he worked for the Clinton campaign. Classy!). Hot Republican issues like Biblical literalism were well covered, just to make sure the public understands what a dangerous bunch of religious zealots all conservatives are.
Why did the Repubs let themselves be stereotyped by these left-wing Clintonoid liars? The questioners were either Democratic employees or selected for their nuttiness to achieve a maximum anti-Republican effect. CNN claims they they didnt know that the questioners were plants. Yeah sure. Democratic operatives snuck into this debate and also into the Dem debate in Las Vegas and CNN just didnt catch it. BOLLOCKS! What a bunch of lying left-wing hacks they are at CNN. No questions about taxes, non-Iraq foreign policy, Iran (a subject that caused some of the most embarrassing answers during the Dem debate) education, overregulation or Federal Health Care. Still, with that said, the candidates didnt do that badly. It seems the Dems cant even win with loaded dice. The contrast between the two debates is striking. There was a wide range of opinions amongst the Reps, the Dems just blandly parroted the PC party line. Even with these inferior questions the Reps demonstrated intelligence and a command of the issues. The softball questions in the Des Moines Dem debate still managed to derail their frontrunner. The Dems cant give straight answers, the Repubs can basically say what they think (unless their name is Mutt Romney who thinks all kinds of different things at various times) without having to worry that average people might be horrified. The Dems have to prevaricate. If the truth of their Socialist views were known they would lose in a landslide.
It will be interesting to see the blowback from this. I dont think Giuliani lost any support and he didnt plant any future extremist position bombs to blow up in his face in the general election. Romney's support will flow to Huckabee, I think his smarmy insincerity doomed him among evangelicals and didnt make any converts with any other groups in the party. Huckabee hit all the born-again buttons but came across as very weak on other issues. McCain was likable but has no credibility. Thompson is too froggy and slow. Paul was his usual crackpot whiny self. Tancredo and Hunter were invisible.
So where are we now? Iowa will finish Romney, Tancredo, Hunter, McCain and Thompson leaving Rudy, Huckabee and the eternal moron Ron Paul to fight it out. If Hillary cant manage to stop the decline of her faltering campaign either Rudy or Huckabee will be facing Obama.
An interesting scenario.

I dont think she has the political skill to win the Democratic nomination. The cracks are already showing. I'm in the Hollywood film community. Everyone I know is a liberal or a hard-core leftist. They are all very wary of Hillary. The corruption and phoniness that embarrassed them during the Bill years are still there and it really bugs them. They might have yelled at the top of their lungs that oral sex and perjury dont matter but most decent people know that they do matter. The air of dishonesty and thuggery disturbs people who honestly agree with Mrs. Clinton politically. Why is it neccessary ? It just gives the right-wingers ammunition to use against Progressives. Its hard to see yourself as an altruistic, world-saving, caring good-guy when you're voting for a candidate who is laundering bundled Chicom campaign cash through Chinatown human trafficking gangs. Mrs. Clinton isnt able to get a positive message out without more scary stuff hovering around the edges. Obama is a reliable liberal and he's a fairly nice guy . Dumping the Clintons sets liberals free from four years of their Right-Wing nerd relatives regurgitating scandal stories at them at family gatherings. Left wing people felt as betrayed by Bill Clinton as we all feel by Dubya and they remember it well. Obama presents a credible alternative. He will get it.
The presidency of George W Bush has been one long, sad series of disappointments and betrayals. He's truckled to his enemies and spit on his supporters at every turn. He's turned the Republican Party into a spineless doormat and let the Dems run amok without any opposition. And now, in a pathetic attempt at a legacy worthy of the one attempted at the end of the Goat-Boy administration, he seeks to enable Holocaust II with his conference for a Final Solution To The Israeli Question to be held in Annapolis. Every towel-headed terrorist Jew-hater in the region has been given a seat at the table.
What a sad loser he is. And what a horrible argument against democracy is that gnomish moron Ehud Olmert. After his unbelievable blundering and incompetence were highlighted for all to see in his pathetic response to Hezbollah last year why did the Israeli electorate not rise up and expel him and the kleptomaniacs who surround him in the Knesset from their cushy sinecures? I suppose once the state starts handing out goodies to one and all even a stark theat to national survival is less terrifying than losing your seat at the trough. The more fool them. Comparing this to Munich in 1938 is not appropriate. After all, Hitler hadnt been issuing threats to exterminate Czechs, it was presented as an administrative adjustment. This is handing an entire population over to their bloodthirsty enemies to be slaughtered with our eyes wide open.Bush didnt have the guts or the skill to demand oil drilling in ANWAR or offshore,or the political will to start building nuclear power plants so now we are on our knees to the Saudis. Shame on Bush and Rice for this nightmare.

The only difference between Hillary and the other libs on the stage in LV was her cloud of scandal and misbehavior. They all want immediate amnesty for all illegals (with immediate access granted to Federal givaway programs),retreat and weakness overseas with Russia and China being able to veto any US action in the UN Security Council, gigantic and steeply progressive tax increases, federalization of medical care, unlimited judicial activism, federal control of all school curricula (ALA Ted Kennedy's 'No Child Left Behind' act, except more), heavy restrictions on trade, an end to secret balloting in Union elections and the end to free speech in the form of talk radio. They cant be honest about any of their agenda because they would lose the election. If Hillary collapses (please God, make it so!) whoever takes over as the frontrunner will have to evade giving straight answers if he wants to have any chance of winning.
Sunday, November 18, 2007
Yes, we all knew that the eunuchs at the Clinton News Network would grovel. We knew that the 'undecideds' that sniveled their incoherent questions would all turn out to be paid Demo activists. We understood that the mainstream media would jump up and down and declare Hillary the winner because she once again avoided giving any straight answers. All that was easily foreseen. But the best moment, to me, was when she fulsomely railed against the 'poisoned toys' that that rascally Dubya was letting her employers in Bejing ship to America. When Her Thighness starts slingin' about them children somethings up. And sure enough, it turns out that Mark Penn, her campaign manager and guru is chairman of the company that does all the public relations for the Chicom enterprise that shipped the toy covered with the date-rape drug. What Chutzpah! A new level of shamelessness and trust that the servile worms in the news media would ignore yet another blast of rotten air from the Clinton Crime Family. Bravo Left Wingers! You've finally proven that you've completely lost your sense of smell! Go take the day off and do something else nice for the children.

Her husband is roaming the planet birddoggin babes and banging beaver as he collects baskets of cash from all and sundry, while she's here at home lying like a rug and openly taking gigantic bribes from the Chicoms while her campaign issues naked threats against reporters to avoid having to answer tough questions. So now she has it leaked to her servile media helots that she's got something on milquetoast Obama? It would have to be a videotape of him having sex with a male goat on a pile of stolen FBI files while Ahmadinejad stuffs hundred dollar bills in his pocket for it to rise to the level of the Clinton's shenanigans. I suppose if the Democrats can accept the lunatic ravings on display in Las Vegas by her and the other deranged socialist loonies as a coherent political philosophy they can enthusiastically follow the perverted twists and turns of Her Royal Thighness' War Room and happily vote to end capitalism and democracy in this country. When are these mutts going to turn off Oprah and start using what little brains God gave them?

So the ratters have gone on strike. They catch the wood rats that live on the ivy and brush-covered hillside that forms part of our backyard and then drop them, live, in the house and coolly walk away. Sometimes there is a rat scurrying around for days before we catch it or drive it through an open door. Sometimes we find the mangled corpse of one who was too slow to get away. But, as you can see from the photo, these ratters are striking with no end in sight.
We've offered them a higher-quality cat food (no more on-sale cheapie brands) and promised to scratch them behind their ears for a set amount of time but I think they sense our weakness.
But then there are the other Ratters, AKA the Writers Guild of America. Some of their work is visible in the adjoining photo. These geniuses have walked out because they want a bigger cut of the revenues. They have, by their action, put thousands of people on film crews and technical services, people who have no hope of ever getting residuals, out of work. That isnt any reason for them not to go on strike but it is interesting that this group of very rich liberals dont mind hurting the workers to press their demands for more money. This is also a symptom of people not being able to see reality very clearly. Most network TV shows are marginal profit makers. Most feature films lose money. Both are produced by giant corporations and are a tiny portion of their revenues. Corporations which can stand a strike easily. The public is watching DVD's, You-Tube, FaceBook, surfing the web, playing video games and watching home videos of themselves having sex with their spouse. Some people even have taken the radical step of reading a book. There are plenty of alternatives to the tripe these hacks spew out. This strike is a symptom of the ongoing collapse of network TV.
But let me offer a simple compromise. Give the writers a cut of the profits but bill them for the loses. If they're going to write 'Lions For Lambs' or 'Syriana' they ought to pay when they flop. Let these Marxist windbags stand naked in the hurricane of Capitalism!
And to the Kitties. Get that rat out from under the TV cabinet and we're willing to put a can of tuna on the table.
Hillary's stonewalling evasions and mercurial, soulless self-positionings have been going on since her first run for the U.S. Senate from New York, a state she had never lived in and knew virtually nothing about. The liberal Northeastern media were criminally complicit in enabling her queenlike, content-free "listening tour," where she took no hard questions and where her staff and security people (including her government-supplied Secret Service detail) staged events stocked with vetted sympathizers, and where they ensured that no protesters would ever come within camera range.

So upset am I at the surging Republican liberals Mike Huckster-bee and Mutt Romney that I have decided to try out as a volunteer at the Clinton Campaign, you know, like a reporter for the Washington Compost or a street vendor in Chinatown. So, with that in mind, I'm here to announce Mrs. Clinton's amazing Victory in tomorrow's debate. She will deftly turn the tables on her gang of testosterone-mad adversaries (giggle! balless would be more accurate) with wit and charm and set the fluttering hearts of the worried pols in the party at rest. The Comeback Queen! Wolf will behave, of course, not wanting to join Tim Russert drinking cheap wine behind the dumpster at the liquor store as he bemoans his eviction from mainstream media paradise. The other spineless weenies that claim they want to be considered from the Democratic nomination will show their usual gormlessness and run about in circles, bumping into one another to the delight of all. The Dumbest Man In The Senate (Joe Biden) will make a heartfelt plea for party unity, and one of these spineless wimps will actually present some form of grovelling apology for upsetting the apple cart the last time. The usual laughs will be provided by comedy-candidate Dennis Kook-Sin-Itch as he explains his wonderful foreign policy ideas. Stubby little straight-man Richardson (the one most likely to apologize to Her Ladyship) will mumble his usual sub-audible nonsense. John Edwards will spout the 1960's cliches he stole from Lydon Johnson and opine that even now, with the Al Qaeda troops that the Democrats support in Iraq facing extinction, its still not too late to achieve the defeat of the hated US Military by electing one of the fine candidates present on this stage.
But it wont matter. The night will belong to Her Royal Thighness. The media probably have their glowing stories written already (in fact the New York Slime's front page extravaganza was faxed over from the Clinton Campaign this morning). The Networks are practicing their 'Hosannas' as we speak (because CBS' writing staff has gone on strike with the WGA they have been temporarily replaced by 'volunteers' sent over from from the Clinton Campaign, ensuring that the coverage will not change in any way). So lets all get our hankies out and be ready to weep with joy at the sensational return of The Champ!
I'm not a social conservative but I respect the views of those who are. I know they've been searching for a candidate that they feel comfortable with but that is no excuse for them to support a sleazy, liberal ex-governor from the blighted backwater of Arkansas. Yes, he'll SAY anything to get your vote but his words are belied by his very liberal record. Havent we had enough experience with unknown governors slithering their way into the White House (Carter, Clinton and Dubya) to know what happens; their conservative rhetoric evaporates and the spending derby kicks into high gear. Hucksterbee gives a cracking good speech, so I'm told, and of course I'll support whoever the party nominates, as should we all, but this guy doesnt have one, single accomplishment of any kind besides winning elections.

The most amazing thing is to see the press, which roars its fury daily at the timid twerps in the Bush White House, get down on its belly and crawl when they're confronted by a gang notorious for holding grudges and using extra-legal means to retaliate. Not so easy to write bad stuff about Hillary if your boss just had dinner with Bill and you dont want to have your taxes audited.
This is all one would want in political drama. Could it be that the wheels are coming off the Hillary Bus so soon? They've always pulled through before, but that was Bill, and although he seems to be a senior advisor he doesnt seem to be in on the day to day campaigning.
If its thinkable that Her Royal Thighness would self-destruct in a giant, greasy pile of rage and sleaze it would lead one to contemplate what comes next. Now if you've read my blog you will know that I am not a fan of Hillary Clinton but she does understand the nuts and bolts of governance (however imperfectly) unlike that sad gaggle of pathetic morons that join her on the stages of the endless debates. Those guys say the darndest things! Things that make you want to put on your lead-lined bunny PJ's , don your radiation-proof helmet and sit in your bomb shelter with your shotgun between your knees sucking your thumb. Crazy Stuff.
So where do I stand in an Obama-Huckabee contest? I will give away all worldly wealth and take my begging bowl and sit by the concrete banks of the currently waterless L.A. River and try to envision the fiery life-death wheel of Kharma.

"Stop Pickin On Mah Wafe!' Yew tell'um Billy Boy! Them thar New York Ciddy pointy-haids caint go arownd askin fer her doccy-mints and askin them thar trick questions without ol Billy leavin Daisy Mae's side and wavin his pie-plate hands at them scallywags that are keepin himself an the Little Wommin out of the house that that election-stealin varmint Dubya done stole rat out from under their noses.

Hey, an them waitresses wantin extry should jes shaddup cuz we're fixin ta give them all the dang free health care they're ever agoing ta be needin. So Billy'll be leavin the Lil Gal on the front porch with the bloodhounds wilst he goes back across the holler ta Daisy's shack and if yew Yankees come lookin fer more trubal jest remember them dawgs bite something fierce.
The grotesque gaggle of candidates representing the Democratic Party's presidential choices were all together last night in Des Moines, vieing for the votes of the dumbest, most deluded cretins on the planet, that slimy group of malignant sub-humans known as Democratic Activists. A century of blood-drenched failure hasnt shaken the ideals of these eternally damned idiots (aka Progressives) and they were there in droves to judge which of these geniuses could most profoundly betray their country's strategic interests in the world and propose the most draconian taxes and giant giveaway programs at home. What a performance!
They've got an ethically compromised megalomaniac,an empty suit who hasnt finished teething, a hallucinating former ambulance-chaser who played second banana to a foon-faced loser four years ago, a runtish governor who swears that the same tactics that didnt make the North Korean savages give up their nukes will work fine with the Iranian savages, the Dumbest Man In The Senate, and the drunken other half of Ted Kennedy's waitress sandwich. All with the same lust for economy-destroying taxes and Federal Health Care.
If the Republicans cant beat this lot it will mean two things:
1) The American electorate is terminally stupid and deserves every disastrous thing it gets.
2) The Republicans are too cowardly and stupid to make a compelling case.
I'm less bothered by this than you would think. I've been broke around people who werent, which is a drag. I've been broke around people who were, which can be fun. I'm usually broke no matter who's in power so seeing the smug leftists who inhabit my world discomfited by the results of their idiotic policies will give me some joy.
Thursday, November 8, 2007
After the appalling responses to a question about the Iranian nuclear program by the Democratic candidates in last week's debate we should cast our minds back to the culture of sniveling appeasement that is their legacy. Remember that their truckling to the savages who run Iran, and indeed to any radical Islamonazi, no matter how extreme, comes from a culture of embracing any anti-Western ideology that arose in intellectual circles in the 1930's and has continued to this day. It was clearly to be seen on the podium at last Tuesday's debate. The grandchildren of the mealy-mouthed supporters of Commie-lovers Henry Wallace and Eleanor Roosevelt in the 1940's are the fervid supporters of Hillary Clinton and Dennis Kook-Sin-Itch.
Nothing has changed so let's take a trip down Memory Lane.
In the summer of 1945 the deputy chief of Stalin's secret police Abakumov gave a speech to his fellow officers about the role of the well-meaning liberals and the Soviets intentions toward them:
"They dream of lasting peace and building a democratic world for all men. They dont seem to realize that WE are the ones who are going to build the new world, and that we shall do so without their liberal democratic recipes. All their slobber plays right into our hands, and we shall thank them for this, in the new world, with coals of fire. We shall drive them into such dead ends as they've never dreamed of. We shall disrupt them and corrupt them from within. We shall lull them to sleep, sap their will to fight. The whole 'free western' world will burst apart like a fat, squashed toad...Our aim justifies this. Our aim is a grand one, the destruction of the old, vile world."
(Stalin's Secret War- Nikolai Tolstoy)
This is the attitude of every bloodthirsty utopian toward the peacenik saps they use to further their aims.

"My husband has not withheld a single document," said Clinton.
If you said that or I said that one could reasonably assume that we meant that there were no documents being withheld.However this is a Clinton speaking so we have to assume that because she said that they havent withheld a 'single' document that we can therefore logically conclude that they are withholding 'many' documents, a situation not excluded by the above quotation. Oh course the fatheads in the press are too stupid or in love to ask her about the lawsuit being pressed to force them to release the documents that they arent withholding but we all know the underlying truth; Hilly Girl's White House experience consisted of Bimbo Eruptions, Travel Office frame-ups and illegal fundraising. The same reporters that spent eight years trying to braid their nose hairs with the one's in Bill's butt are not ever going to ask a follow-up question or press a point with The Little Woman.
UPDATE! Her husband HASNT withheld a single document! The key weasel-word was not 'single' , as I had speculated, but 'husband'. Hillary and Bruce Lindsay have been in charge of the papers that are in question, not BJ! HRC is not releasing them for the above-stated obvious reasons.

Seventy years of failed government retraining programs are no hindrance to proposing more if you're a genius like Mutt Romney. This opportunist masquerading as a conservative (until he wins the nomination) cant even keep his liberal instincts under wraps during the primaries. 'If there's a problem I must have a PLAN!' is a liberal mantra from the days of FDR. Maybe vote-buying and pandering have just become endemic to the system. He's proposing a whole new batch of Programs to retrain factory workers who are losing their jobs to China. Nice idea, except it never works.
My son teaches a course in computer graphics, at a community college where the cost is minimal and also at an expensive private training school. The students at the community college do not take the class seriously and the one's that are paying for the instruction out of their own pockets do. Free government giveaways NEVER work. Especially if the recipients of the largess are humiliated and insulted by being forced to take it or lose other 'benefits'. Even the most well-intentioned blue-collar worker placed in a classroom after thirty years on the job is going to be suffering a great deal of angst at having to start from square one after his life has been flushed down the toilet by some MBA punk fresh out of business school. A know-it-all kid with a college degree like the ones that are looking at him like some pitiable welfare case at the job training center.
Another unworkable plan by a Compassionate Conservative (aka Liberal).
