JOe Miller Screwed by MSM, Alaska-style

The local CBS skank-den had finished their phone call to Miller's campaign HQ, so they thought, when their subsequent conversation was caught when the phone didn't sit perfectly back in the CBS station's cradle---or something. That's when Miller's HQ caught the following snarky conversation, with a female bitch-whore evidently the chief impresario of the dirty tricks that the Commie CBS squad was planning to pull on Miller:
FEMALE REPORTER: That’s up to you because you have the experience but that’s what I would do...I’d wait until you see who shows up because that indicates we already know something...
FEMALE REPORTER: Child molesters...
MALE REPORTER: Oh yes...Joe Miller’s...uh...get a list of people/campaign workers which one's the molester
FEMALE VOICE: You know that of all the people that will show up tonight, at least one of them will be a registered sex offender.
[Laughter] MALE REPORTER: We need to find that one person... [INAUDIBLE]
FEMALE REPORTER: The one thing we can do is ....we won’t know....we won’t know but if there is any sort of chaos whatsoever we can put out a twitter/facebook alert: saying what the... ‘Hey Joe Miller punched at rally.’
FEMALE REPORTER: Kinda like Rand Paul...I like that. [Laughter] FEMALE REPORTER: That’s a good one.

Now the filthy maggots at the CBS station have a far-fetched explanation that no one believes.

Sarah Palin called these perps "criminals."

I agree.

Raving After Krugboy Shits His Pants

My Pants are Leaking Brown!

Take a look at the comments page of the NYT after Krugman's latest fart in the bath. A bunch of paranoid lefties convinced that everything happening in the 2010 midterms was caused by evil GOP plots, and none of the fucktards considering for a moment that the Tea Partiers are not a part of the Republican Party, but rather vice versa, and that Demonrat libtards are the maggots in the meat. An obnoxious bitch named Aileen in North Carolina whines about the "extreme right teabag crowd" without realizing that she's using an obscene metaphor. Only John Kerr from San Francisco has a good answer to the nutjobs wailing and tearing their garments who infest that ragged fishwrap's comment page:
What a load of rubbish. Other countries are starting to recover without spending like sailors. People outside as well as inside need to have some confidence in US finances and the Dollar. Who would want to invest in the United States of Krugman? No one. Deflation is okay if it pertains to over-priced land and housing. Young people can actually aim to buy a home.
US problems long term are due to losing the race to educate our population and sending the best brains to Wall Street jobs that produce nothing. Our political leaders have wasted all the money that should have been set aside for retirements. Look north and you will find some pensions that actually have real assets instead of worthless IOUs. Our capital markets and technical innovators are our strengths and we need to rebuild confidence in our national solvency and stop penalizing success. And we have to stop listening to 20th century economists who never worked for or managed a business.

As for Krugman, here is the best riposte I've seen recently in the blogosphere re a cockamamie Nobel as moronic as Obama's.

Bye bye Miss American Pie

The Wall Street Journal now stands triumphantly over the land and allows itself a preliminary chortle at the foolish behavior of the Demonrats and their kind, the parasitic bloodsuckers who never started a business or met a payroll:
Perhaps Mr. Obama could have imposed more discipline on this crowd, and we advised him early to do so. He chose not to. We suspect he never wanted to, and multiple reports say he overruled then White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel to side with Mrs. Pelosi on health care. Mr. Obama is responsible for lashing his Presidency to the Speaker's mast.

It's especially amusing to hear liberal complaints about the 111th Congress, because the reality is that Democrats have achieved most of what they set out to do. With only 40 Senate votes, Republicans couldn't stop a whisper until Mr. Brown arrived, and even then they let through financial reform and another round of stimulus spending. From her liberal perch, Mrs. Pelosi has a point when she laments that Democrats aren't getting credit for their legislative achievements. And our guess is that soon after November 2 the lads at MSNBC and the New York Times will speak of this as a liberal Golden Age and defend its every act.

That's my guess too as we shove off to friendlier shores for the real Americans homeland, the one behind the Golden Door of the statue of Liberty. Americans are a nation of individualists and were tricked into voting for a self-centered fool and his coven of bitch/witches, both male and female. I just watched the silly shit on Jon Stewart and he is an incorrigible fool. The WSJ expatiates on the subject of Pelosi, that insidious disease of the DEmonrat Machine Politics engendered in Baltimore and now rotting in SF. Hopefully, this botox bomb is the last female speaker we'll see in our lifetimes.
Mrs. Pelosi's real problem is with the American people. They understand what Democrats have achieved, and they dislike it. They thought they had elected a President who would focus on the economy, but instead they got the most far-reaching liberal social policies since the 1960s. Those policies have frightened business and produced a capital and hiring strike. Americans were told the $814 billion stimulus would hold the jobless rate below 8%, but two years later it is 9.6% and the economic recovery has stalled. They were promised fiscal restraint, and instead they got spending at a postwar high of 25% of GDP. They were told ObamaCare would lower insurance costs, but so far it has produced only higher costs and fewer health-care choices. They were promised a tax cut, but they can see tax increases coming next year, in 2013, and later to pay for all the spending. This is what has driven the electorate to the verdict it will render on Tuesday. The irony is that the Democrats most likely to lose next week are centrists and Blue Dogs in the most competitive election districts. Most liberals hold relatively safe seats, and their worst fear is that they'll lose their chairmanships. The exception is Mrs. Pelosi, who would lose her speakership and perhaps resign if Democrats lose their majority. But we suspect she has long believed that losing was possible but worth the risk to pass ObamaCare. You have to break a few careers to make a European entitlement state.

More in sadness than in anger, the WSJ, now the most paid-for circulation newspaper in the USA and perhaps the world, looks back on the last 45 years:
The larger lesson is that we are learning for the fourth time in 45 years that America can't be governed from the left. Democrats exploited the recession and the accident of 60 Senate seats to push the agenda of their dreams, and the American public has recoiled at the effrontery and the results. Repairing the damage of the 111th Congress will take years, and perhaps decades, but the first step is ousting the liberals who once again drove their party off a cliff.

I don't know if he's smart enough to figure it out, but the current POTUS had better get his act together or he'll go the way of Jimmy Carter, eternally ragging about how good his four years in office was and how he is the greatest of our presidents.

Pass the popcorn.

Another Obummer Lapse in Foreign Policy: EU & Russia Cozy Up to Each Other Because of US Disinterest

My Death Panels Will Get Y'all Soon Enough!

BHusseinO can't seem to buy a break nowadays. A recent German/French/Russian "Summit" was held in Deauville to begin to orchestrate the EU's relaxation of its NATO ties and construction of a new "security relationship" with Russia.
...there are obvious factors explaining the French and German initiatives. A major one is President Barack Obama’s perceived lack of interest and engagement in Europe. His failure to attend a Berlin ceremony commemorating the end of the Cold War and his cancellation of a meeting involving the E.U.’s new president has had symbolic weight. At the same time, the U.S. reset with Russia and the administration’s willingness to treat President Dmitri A. Medvedev as a potential Western-oriented partner has given the Germans and French the sense they were free to act on the basis of their own interpretations of the changes in Moscow. In this European view, the United States has become significantly dependent on Russia through its maintenance of military supply routes to Afghanistan and its heightened pressure, albeit in wavering measure, on Iran. Because the reset is portrayed by the administration to be a U.S. foreign policy success, criticism from Washington of Russia is at a minimum.

And Obummer has given the Russians a whole series of passes in other areas, why get so excited about the EU? Including the fact that the EU has no strategic partnership with NATO? Obummer is nothing if not asleep at the switch as the US train barrels down a tunnel to nowhere, which is his apparent foreign policy goal.
Ten days ago, when Mr. Medvedev offered Hugo Chávez of Venezuela help to build the country’s first nuclear power station, the State Department expressed concern about technology migrating to “countries that should not have that technology” — but added (bafflingly), that the relationship between Venezuela and Russia (for years Iran’s supplier of nuclear wherewithal) “is not of concern to us.”

Last week, more of the same. When Mr. Medvedev bestowed Russia’s highest honors at a Kremlin ceremony on a group of sleeper spies who were expelled from the United States last July, a State Department spokesman turned away a reporter’s question with a “no comment.” Washington chooses not to say anything either about Mr. Medvedev’s support, repeated in Deauville, for Mr. Sarkozy’s plan, as next year’s president of the G-20 consultative grouping, to focus its attention on limiting the dollar’s role as the world’s reserve currency.

In the Deauville aftermath, the Americans have preferred applauding Mr. Medvedev’s decision to come to a NATO summit meeting in Lisbon next month, following U.S. congressional elections. He is not expected to announce Russian participation in or endorsement of a U.S.-initiated antimissile shield for Europe — the United States’ notionally organic bond in strengthening the alliance’s trans-Atlantic future — yet the Russian president’s appearance as a guest on NATO’s turf could be seen as an important gesture of real cooperation.

Still, for all the Americans’ concern about Europe dealing with Russia on its own, there hardly has been a corresponding public statement from the administration that’s a call for caution about Moscow’s interest in setting up rivalries between NATO and the E.U. For David J. Kramer, a former senior State Department official with responsibility for Russia, the new circumstances show “the Russians now have far more leverage in the U.S. relationship than they should.”

But World Politics Review has a less Manichaen point of view on the zero-sum game that used to be called the Great Game which consisted in keeping Russia within its Soviet boundaries:
Finally, as Vinocur points out by citing a French source at Elysée Palace, it's premature to assess whether Russia's Western turn represents a permanent, or even a durable strategic shift. If you take the 2008 Russia-Georgia War as the highwater mark of Russian belligerence toward the U.S. and NATO, certainly the past year points in that direction.

But it bears noting that in the intervening two years, Russia has essentially accomplished all of the foreign policy objectives previously driving that belligerence. NATO's eastward expansion is off the table. The U.S. European-based missile defense system has been modified and multilateralized (although as Richard Weitz's WPR column today makes clear, it remains problematic). And Russian dominance in Central Asia is re-established.

In light of that, Russia's concerns have now begun to resemble more closely those of Europe and the U.S. -- namely, China's expanding influence, both globally and in Central Asia, as well as regional stability in Afghanistan and the Middle East.

That raises the question that poses the biggest problem to this sort of Russia fearmongering: Assuming the very unlikely emergence of an alignment between Europe and Russia that did replace the trans-Atlantic relationship, in what policy and regional areas would that threaten U.S. interests? Central Asia is a contested space mainly to assure European energy security, which such an alignment would logically moot. Interests in Afghanistan overlap entirely, with differences mainly concerning method (counternarcotics policy, in particular). On Iran, Europe is very closely aligned with the U.S. view, and would more likely exercise a moderating influence on Russia than the reverse. And in terms of balancing against China, Russia's Far East territory would provide a very useful northwestern frontier to preoccupy Chinese strategists. As for counterterrorism, counterproliferation and anti-piracy, Russia has been relatively cooperative, even at the height of its belligerent period.

A lot of the anxiety these kinds of summits provoke can be traced to a lingering distrust of European diplomacy, which is seen by most Americans as not Manichean enough. But the flipside of Europe's pragmatism is that it is driven by self-interest. And it will be quite a while before it is in Europe's interest to abandon the trans-Atlantic relationship. In the meantime, a more closely harmonized relationship with Moscow not only resembles the current U.S. policy toward Russia, but is in everyone's interest
Let's hope that after the mid-term elections chastise Obama into a saner look at things, he can get a grip on the foreign policy levers of strategy instead of trying to punish the Brits for being imperialists back a century ago and to soothe the undying hatred that vicious radical criminals like Ortega and Chavez nurture towards the USA.

Unless he's lost all contact with the world as it is.

D-bag Dan Pfeiffer's WH Blog Gets it Wrong & Stupid

I'm VERY Scary

Scarier Than Thou

Sperm=burper Dan starts out his White House blog with an egregious solecism: special interest billionaires continued to pour secret donations of millions of dollars each into front groups supporting Republicans, we asked the obvious question: "What do they expect in return?"

This is especially hilarious in light of the Demonrats' outspending the GOP by almost $200 million so far in 2010.
Like menstruating coeds in a college dorm, the New York Times has an article on which GOP members are getting the most contributions in anticipation of their ascent to great power and sway over the House Ways and Means or the Armed Services Cte.
And the braying Ass[hole] Obama has quieted down about the "secret donations" now that it is becoming apparent that the feckless fuck-ups known as Demonrats are now outspending the Republicans by a good deal more than expected. POLITICO has the following tote-board up so far:
So far, the latest figures show that the Democratic Party machinery has outraised its Republican counterpart in this campaign cycle by almost $270 million. And even when outside spending on television advertising and direct mail is added to the mix, Republicans still haven’t closed the gap. The money race totals come to $856 million for the Democratic committees and their aligned outside groups, compared to $677 for their Republican adversaries, based on figures compiled by the Center for Responsive Politics.

Why Doesn't NPR Shit-Can Loathsome Nina Totenburg?

I plagiarize and sometimes get CAUGHT!!!

James Taranto asks the question I was hoping someone would put forward. Most interestingly, Taranto asks why the NPR "preference cascade" is still in place about Totenburg, easily the most disliked and loathed "journalist" in DC. Thanks to Dr. Zero, he describes the sitrep thus:
I think one of the reasons the hardcore liberals who run NPR terminated Williams is their desire to abort a preference cascade. . . . As described by Glenn Reynolds in a classic 2002 essay, a preference cascade occurs when people trapped inside a manufactured consensus suddenly realize that many other people share their doubts. Preference falsification works by making doubters feel isolated and alone. . . .
Since a free society makes it very easy for individuals to change their opinions, they must be prevented from even considering such a change. Manufactured consensus is very fragile in a competitive arena of ideas, when there is no fearsome penalty for a "Fresh Air" listener who decides to switch over to Rush Limbaugh.
The manufactured liberal consensus about Islamic terrorism rolled off the assembly line a long time ago. . . . A credentialed, taxpayer-supported NPR liberal cannot be allowed to question this consensus. It will shatter too easily if the clients of liberalism begin connecting dots between underwear bombers and pistol-packing Army psychiatrists. They cannot be left to nod quietly in agreement with the earnest musings of Juan Williams . . . then look around the room and see all the other faithful liberals nodding at the same time. . . .
Juan Williams came too close to understanding ideas he was supposed to hate. The Left is deathly afraid of what happens when its constituents begin to understand the Right. They didn't like the idea of millions watching an NPR contributor break the biohazard seal on strictly quarantined ideas.

This is the dilemma of the hard left and its followers. How can it enforce military discipline on its mymidons while they are always veer closely to understanding and even agreeing with their right-wing counterparts? A dead-above-the-neck specimen like Totenberg will never have this problem, but the decent citizen who has stumbled into the leftist briar patch might suddenly fall off his horse and have a sudden revelation---something that would never happen to a total half-wit plagiarist criminal like Totenberg, and defect to the right a la I. F. Stone.

Of such conversions, true drama and even literature can be made. The orcs and uruk-hais of NPR would never understand the whys and wherefores of a human drama concerning politics and the human place in the moral firmament.

Juan Williams Shit-Canned for Honesty---the NPR Way!

Juan Williams

Juan Williama startlingly told Bill-O the truth the other night and was canned by the ULTRA-LEFT SOVIET CADRE at NPR, where George Soros ships his punt money when he's not subsidizing "Media Mutters" and "Think Process." Soros Slave Vivian [Jewish Name] fired Williams on the advice of the Muslim Brotherhood plant here in the USA, an undercover operation for Muslim terrorists called CAIR, who seem to have, nay, nibble on Vivian's ear with remarkable effects. Despite the fact that 90% of the underpaid media biyotches at NPR are left-wing whores. like plagiarist Nina Totenberg, whose name aptly means "City of Death" in German, bitch Vivian LNU fired one of the VERY FEW conservative [by NPR standards, MOR by everyone sane's standards]. If this is the conservative counterpart to the Foley fiasco in '06, a totally engineered media hoax engineered by means of a disappearing website given all the credibility of the NYT website itself. I wonder if the libturds have anything waiting in the wings to throw the populace whose intelligence BHusseinO seems to disdain off its track, and I guess we'll just have to wait. Meanwhile, here's JUan:
“Now that I no longer work for NPR let me give you my opinion. This is an outrageous violation of journalistic standards and ethics by management that has no use for a diversity of opinion, ideas or a diversity of staff (I was the only black male on the air). This is evidence of one-party rule and one-sided thinking at NPR that leads to enforced ideology, speech and writing. It leads to people, especially journalists, being sent to the gulag for raising the wrong questions and displaying independence of thought.”

If bitch-of-the-century Totenberg doesn't resign out of shame for her very ugly existence, I guess I'll never ever listen to that government-supported agit-prop again.

Noonan Scores "Old Republicans" and Democrats in General


"Tea Party to the Rescue" is Peggy Noonan's self-explanatory Op-Ed in the WSJ:
Two central facts give shape to the historic 2010 election. The first is not understood by Republicans, and the second not admitted by Democrats.

The first: the tea party is not a "threat" to the Republican Party, the tea party saved the Republican Party. In a broad sense, the tea party rescued it from being the fat, unhappy, querulous creature it had become, a party that didn't remember anymore why it existed, or what its historical purpose was. The tea party, with its energy and earnestness, restored the GOP to itself.

View Full Image

Associated Press
In a practical sense, the tea party saved the Republican Party in this cycle by not going third-party. It could have. The broadly based, locally autonomous movement seems to have made a rolling decision, group by group, to take part in Republican primaries and back Republican hopefuls. (According to the Center for the Study of the American Electorate, four million more Republicans voted in primaries this year than Democrats, the GOP's highest such turnout since 1970. I wonder who those people were?)

Because of this, because they did not go third-party, Nov. 2 is not going to be a disaster for the Republicans, but a triumph.

This is a victory over GWB as much as it is over BHO:
The tea party did something the Republican establishment was incapable of doing: It got the party out from under George W. Bush. The tea party rejected his administration's spending, overreach and immigration proposals, among other items, and has become only too willing to say so. In doing this, the tea party allowed the Republican establishment itself to get out from under Mr. Bush: "We had to, boss, it was a political necessity!" They released the GOP establishment from its shame cringe.

And they not only freed the Washington establishment, they woke it up. That establishment, composed largely of 50- to 75-year-olds who came to Washington during the Reagan era in a great rush of idealism, in many cases stayed on, as they say, not to do good but to do well. They populated a conservative infrastructure that barely existed when Reagan was coming up: the think tanks and PR groups, the media outlets and governmental organizations. They did not do what conservatives are supposed to do, which is finish their patriotic work and go home, taking the knowledge and sophistication derived from Washington and applying it to local problems. (This accounts in part for the esteem in which former Bush budget chief and current Indiana Gov. Mitch Daniels is held. He went home.)

My wife had lunch with Mitch way back in the day and he was an unlikely hero of the Republican Renewal. And "shame cringe" is a good way to describe GWB as he was unjustly pilloried for Katrina & a number of untoward events completely unfairly, but NEVER TRIED TO DEFEND HIMSELF...! That sort of was the mantra for the Repubs..., never say you're sorry, but never say the Demonrats are a lying bunch of morons, most of all Dingy Harry and Botox Nancy...! If this is some sort of 'gentleman's agreement," it is certainly honored more in the breach by the Demonrats. They deserve MORE than the drubbing they're going to get at the polls next fortnight. But the obnoxious little creep and chronically wrong Fareed Zakaria quoth thus:
There is also this week a striking essay by Fareed Zakaria, no tea partier he, in Time magazine. He unknowingly touched on part of the reason for the tea party. Mr. Zakaria, born and raised in India, got his first sense of America's vitality, outsized ways, glamour and crazy high-spiritedness as a young boy in the late 1970s watching bootlegged videotapes of "Dallas." What a country! His own land, in comparison, seemed sleepy, hidebound. Now when he travels to India, "it's as if the world has been turned upside down. Indians are brimming with hope and faith in the future. After centuries of stagnation, their economy is on the move, fueling animal spirits and ambition. The whole country feels as if it has been unlocked." Meanwhile the mood in the U.S. seems glum, dispirited. "The middle class, in particular, feels under assault." Sixty-three percent of Americans say they do not think they will be able to maintain their current standard of living. "The can-do country is convinced that it can't."

That's because of a sclerotic GOP and an aggressively socialist Demonrat Obummer---both will be encircled in part by this new populism against 'death panels' and wars against the well-off and the over-the-hill waged by Demonrat shitheads. And Commissar Ron Klein and Citizen Prosecutor Wasserman-Schwartz [!?!] deserved to be dragged naked through the streets of South Florida behind a phalanx of Harleys manned by vets and over-the-hill bikers...!

What the Liberal Elites Still Cannot Understand About the Tea Party

Peter Berkowitz is a Hoover Institution grandee attached to Stanford. He asks the question:
Highly educated people say the darndest things, these days particularly about the tea party movement. Vast numbers of other highly educated people read and hear these dubious pronouncements, smile knowingly, and nod their heads in agreement. University educations and advanced degrees notwithstanding, they lack a basic understanding of the contours of American constitutional government.

New York Times columnist Paul Krugman got the ball rolling in April 2009, just ahead of the first major tea party rallies on April 15, by falsely asserting that "the tea parties don't represent a spontaneous outpouring of public sentiment. They're AstroTurf (fake grass-roots) events."

Having learned next to nothing in the intervening 16 months about one of the most spectacular grass-roots political movements in American history, fellow Times columnist Frank Rich denied in August of this year that the tea party movement is "spontaneous and leaderless," insisting instead that it is the instrument of billionaire brothers David and Charles Koch.

Washington Post columnist E. J. Dionne criticized the tea party as unrepresentative in two ways. It "constitutes a sliver of opinion on the extreme end of politics receiving attention out of all proportion with its numbers," he asserted last month. This was a step back from his rash prediction five months before that since it "represents a relatively small minority of Americans on the right end of politics," the tea party movement "will not determine the outcome of the 2010 elections."

It is safe to say that Krugman, Rich, and Dionne will go through the next convocation of Congress without a clue as to why they lost in 2010. Seriously. They are simply, good "edjucashun' to the side, unable to know where the Federalist Papers originated and why the Federalist Papers are UNIQUE to America. And here's why;
For the better part of two generations, the best political science departments have concentrated on equipping students with skills for performing empirical research and teaching mathematical models that purport to describe political affairs. Meanwhile, leading history departments have emphasized social history and issues of race, class and gender at the expense of constitutional history, diplomatic history and military history.

Neither professors of political science nor of history have made a priority of instructing students in the founding principles of American constitutional government. Nor have they taught about the contest between the progressive vision and the conservative vision that has characterized American politics since Woodrow Wilson (then a political scientist at Princeton) helped launch the progressive movement in the late 19th century by arguing that the Constitution had become obsolete and hindered democratic reform.

Then there are the proliferating classes in practical ethics and moral reasoning. These expose students to hypothetical conundrums involving individuals in surreal circumstances suddenly facing life and death decisions, or present contentious public policy questions and explore the range of respectable progressive opinions for resolving them. Such exercises may sharpen students' ability to argue. They do little to teach about self-government.

They certainly do not teach about the virtues, or qualities of mind and character, that enable citizens to shoulder their political responsibilities and prosper amidst the opportunities and uncertainties that freedom brings. Nor do they teach the beliefs, practices and associations that foster such virtues and those that endanger them.

Those who doubt that the failings of higher education in America have political consequences need only reflect on the quality of progressive commentary on the tea party movement. Our universities have produced two generations of highly educated people who seem unable to recognize the spirited defense of fundamental American principles, even when it takes place for more than a year and a half right in front of their noses.

Hofstadter tp the contrary notwithstanding, the single unique insight of the Federalists should be guarded like the jewel in the pipe that it is. This cannot be a mere "two year wonder."

Michelle Obama Does Burgers and Fries While We Struggle over Arugula


Site MeterMayor Bloomberg as the
the ersatz RINO NYC Mayor is a pushover compared to mega-Michelle in the food-czarina department.

Michelle's problems with the law continue as she still has not explained how she lost that Illinois State Bar License in 1994.

Tea Party 'Racism' Charges a Complete Fabrication & Lie!!!

The pig-bitch Norah O'Donnell's standard response to Tea ["Taxed Enough Already"] Rallies is "Racism, Racism!!!" Ditto for Black Caucus single-digit IQ tree-dwellers like Maxine Waters, the aborted fetus from S. California.

Reason Magazine puts paid to these allegations after a UCLA analysis concludes that the charges are baseless, and perhaps so are criminal charges that the Demonrat Party has been making day after day, with always the same results.

Joe 'Plugz & Gnashers' Ready to Run in 2016!!!

No, I don't Have My Head Screwed On Backwards!

The Telegraph's Tony Harnden has relieved America of an immense burden of worry. Joe Biden said:
“No, I won’t. I won’t rule that out. No,” .... when he was asked if he would rule out a 2016 presidential run.

I for one will not have any sleepless nights knowing that 'Good Ol' [Very Ol'] Joe' will be at the end of the Obama tunnel even if it's onjly 2012. Walter Mondale is in the same frame of mind. Heeeeeere's FRITZ!
“He seems to understand working people, he’s got the ethnic background, he puts a lot of emphasis on his faith and his family, and people are comfortable with him.”

Tony Harnden does a nasty turn on Mondale, sadly denigrating this elder statemen whose rocklike integrity earned him the name "The Human Windmill" in an age before flip-flops!
Walter Mondale?! The man who was Jimmy Carter’s veep and lost every state in the union except for Minnesota in 1984? The man who went on to lose in, er, Minnesota in a 2002 Senate race even though the incumbent Democrat, Paul Wellstone, had just been killed in a plane crash and there was an outpouring of grief and appreciation for him? Blimey, I think I’d rather have Osama bin Laden saying nice things about me.
Note, by the way, Mondale’s comment about Biden’s “ethnic background”. Nice point, eh? The Democrats need a white guy in certain parts of the country. Good thing a Republican didn’t say that.

Tony sums up my feeling exactly about the flakey hypocrisy that the Demonrats live and move and have their being inside of.

More Fudge from the Factory

LA Times which Crooks & Liars asserts isn't really a liberal newspaper [!?!] has a few of my protestations, including this one below:
Someone should tell Axelrod that the documentation on the US Chamber of Commerce's foreign contributors is right next to Obama's long-form birth certificate---whereever that is. Obama is a narcissistic and self-destructive egoist, as the campaign reveals as he takes time off from his golf outings [52 so far] to lavish his charisma and love lather on us poor mortals eager to glimpse The Won. And he attacks big business, small business, banks, and the rich in a class-warfare scenario straight out of Das Kapital. As soon as he reveals where all of those credit card donations in 2008 came from, maybe he'll have the credibility to assert that the US Chamber is out of bounds. But since the "International Brotherhood" unions and SEIU are full of foreign-garnered cash and are giving to the Democrats in bundles, maybe he ought to STFU...!

One poster to the LAT noted that UBS is registered as donating over $1 million to the Obama campaign in '08. Ever wonder how many more slipped by under the radar undetected? I think that the Republicans should be taking names and noting where some of these malfeasant Dems live, and start committee hearings right after their election in 2010. But odds are that Boehner won't want to "project a negative image" and will once again, let the Dems escape from the noose. Too bad the Dems didn't do the same with Nixon, who at least was a sincere patriot, whatever else his weaknesses might have been. Not a child-molesting pedophile, like lib-hero Daniel Ellsberg who is now staining PBS & the NYT on forums late in the evening. Ellsberg used to send Polaroid snaps of himself and 10-year old Thai boys from Bangkok to my FSO boss in France, who served with him in Saigon. I guess Jill Abramson is a poor second-string nowadays to his glory days---Dannie-boy must have had quite a dossier that Nixon was after when Ellsberg's shrink's office was broken into...! My main crime in the 'Nam was Tu Do Street and the steam & cream in Vinh Long. And Joe McCarthy was sincerely going after Communists, not American businessmen.

If Obama had any shame, he'd have checked out long ago. Still waiting for all those records of his campaign to be made available...

Obama 2008 Campaign Got Unverified Contributions by the Millions...!

Who's My Daddy? Boehner's My Daddy!

Letter 69 re George Soros "sitting out" this election while his galley slaves at Think Progress and Media Mutters hurl accusations of the US Chamber of Commerce using foreign money to influence the election has even motivated the squalid LOSER now in the Oval Office to come back from his 52nd golf outing to campaign that the GOP is doing what he did in 2008! Oops, I put the last part in by mistake! Here's "reshas" comment number 69:
NEW YORK TIMES: Obama’s “foreign money” claims are bogus. They’re also pretty rich, considering how his 2008 campaign handled foreign credit cards. From that National Journal story: “The lack of a computerized address-verification system would allow the Obama campaign’s computers to accept online donations from U.S. citizens above legal limits, and to accept donations from foreigners who are barred by law from contributing at all.” Perhaps its time to remind people of that issue again. Oh, wait, I just did!

Here’s more on that from 2008: “A breakdown of controls has enabled foreign and other unaccountable funds to pour into the Obama campaign — and it’s not an accident.”

Plus, from the Washington Post: Obama Accepting Untraceable Donations. “Sen. Barack Obama’s presidential campaign is allowing donors to use largely untraceable prepaid credit cards that could potentially be used to evade limits on how much an individual is legally allowed to give or to mask a contributor’s identity, campaign officials confirmed. Faced with a huge influx of donations over the Internet, the campaign has also chosen not to use basic security measures to prevent potentially illegal or anonymous contributions from flowing into its accounts, aides acknowledged.”

More here. “Then there’s the question of whether foreign nationals are contributing to the Obama campaign. There is more than enough evidence to warrant a full-scale investigation by the Federal Election Commission, including the $32,332.19 that appears to have come from two brothers living in a Hamas-controlled Palestinian refugee camp in Rafah, GA (that’s Gaza, not Georgia). The brothers’ cash is part of a flood of illegal foreign contributions accepted by the Obama campaign.”

You know, I’d kind of forgotten this scandal until Obama brought this stuff up. It didn’t get much attention then, but it may get more this time around.

In the very words of the ancient streetwalker crack whore Jill Abramson---oops, I meant the Grey Lady that used to dominate the MSM until now, when everyone sees that Pinch Sulzberger, Bill Keller, and Jill are the three mouseketeers. Jug-ears just like their plantation master, scion of a slave-holding family on his mama's side and probably descended partly from Arab slavers on his Luo drunken womanizing crooked pol daddy's side! The guy who throws out opening game pitches like a girl and polticizes like a Chicago ward-heeler. Obummer hisself...!

Squalor by the Numbers---Read 'Em and Weep!

The US Treasury has this website where you can see how Obimbo and his orc-horde are raping the nation's banks and putting us all into perpetual penury:

Spending is under the control of Congress. Specifically the House of Representatives. So one needs to look at the changes in deficit under each political party's control. The above government website will set the record straight.

Democrat Control 1950 257,000,000,000
until 1994 4,692,000,000,000
Total Increase of 4,435,000,000,000

GOP Control 1994 4,692,000,000,000
Until 2007 8,506,973,899,215
Total Increase of 3,814,973,899,215

Democrat Control 2007: 8,506,973,899,215
Until Aug 2010: 13,449,652,537,035
Total Increase of: 4,942,678,637,820

Yes, Obimbo has put 5 trillion in debt on the books in less than two years. Pretty depressing, unless you are a freeloading hopeless dependent and want a nanny-state to keep you on the public tit forever.

In the last four years, a Democratic controlled congress has added more deficit (and only to 8/31/2010) than the entire 12 GOP years of recent history.

Drew Stews as GOP Brews New Way to Stymie Ancient Crones

These aren't my real teeth, and I broke every set of braces, now I wash my teeth with lye to get off the potty mouth feeling

Extinct Fossil Re-emerges as Drew whines almost interminably [even in about four paragraphs, they're just that hard to read without gagging] about why the 'liberals' shouldn't desert the Chosen Won---you know, Obimbo the Charismatic Golfer.

The dreary cackling of this ancient termagant is the most recent example of how the brain-dead DC zombies from the past drone on even though they've been dropped by semi-respectable lib publications and remain entombed in some sort of eternal recurrence of a dial tone. Drew is absolutely clueless as to why the Independents and Republicans are almost en masse rejecting the ObamaCare debacle and all his pomps and works. Except for the black urban plantations, his standing among Hispanics is sliding, well, southward. And Drew, even though she must be approaching the century mark, still cannot write a sentence out of the narrow Dem party-hack shill-talk that emanates from the White House Press Corps.

But why read my rant when James Taranto puts this extinct fossil back into the museum of natural history, in this case, un-natural, where she belongs?

Witch! Whore!...Nazi! The Old Media Appropriately Give Their Dying Gasp a Slimy Stinkbomb Sendoff...!

Lez Whore Kaptur Hating on Her Opponent Helped by Hate-Mag Atlantic

Ann Althouse has a great piece on the fake phoney BS the Atlantic's Joshua Green has sent up in a blog-piece called "Witch! Whore!...Nazi!'

Below is a comment that sums up the MSM sliminess in a comment by "Beta Rube" and my following remark:
"About 12 weeks before a major election, the media and Dems start their quest for menstrual synchrony. About 4 weeks before the election, the process is complete.

President Jesus puts the mouth on John Boehner, and lo and behold, he and his ties to lobbyists are on the front page of the NYT. The fact that Pelosi and Reid have both received more filthy lobbyist lucre is irrelevant here. When Jesus speaks, his scribes scribble.

One of these Sundays, 60 minutes will offer a damning, unproven bombshell about God knows what, complete with dramatic pauses and wounded women and children. Oh those heartless Repubs.

None of this matters this time. The Dems are going down and their asshole shills can't stop it.

Bye, Bye old media!"

Thank you, Beta Rube, for the best analysis of the 2010 media whore-streetwalker-mafioso-DNC meltdown yet. This short bit should be engraved in marble on the NBCBSABCNYT tombstones after they are thankfully interred in all but name during the next decade.

Can't come too soon for me! And here's a piece of rant I threw over the transom at the late and once-great NYT[The subject is an article on Nancy Pelosi saying that she is "resolute" because she insists that she will remain Speaker.]:
So Mark Leibovich believes she is resolute. I think a more candid and realistic assessment is that this woman is profoundly unaware of what's going on in 'flyover country,' which seems to be the case with a lot of the commenters on the NYT threads. You know, the people who insist that the rest of the country is 'living in a cocoon,' as NYT Op-Ed columnist Maureen Dowd commented a while back. The fact that over the last quarter century and more that around 40% of Americans are self-identified conservatives and less than 20% self-identified liberals or 'progressives,' appears not to register with the Pelosis and the Upper West Side victims of academicide and elitist media propaganda. Therefore, a concerted campaign can be waged by the mainstream media against GWB and liberals are enraged when Fox NEWS and the Wall Street Journal don't join in the mass hysteria. Which is what the election of an unexamined and frankly incompetent tyro or neophyte or rookie like Obama is turning out to be---mass delusion fueled by a media unable to examine itself and its own prejudices to such an extent that it is now self-destructing, as the NYT assault on the Tribune organization noted without, of course, recognizing that in a decade or so, the dead-tree NYT will probably be as extinct as the dodo. With the same reputation for sagacity as that long, lost flightless bird...!

Liu Xiaobo & Vargas Fully Deserve Nobels, Unlike Some Recent Bogus Peace Laureates

Vargas Llosa

City Journal praises both Norway and Sweden for attempting to steer a bit away from the maelstrom, to use a local appropriate image, as its recent Far-Left Peace and Literature Laureates have created a giant sucking whirlpool of flotsam and jetsam with the obscure cultural detritus that only the rancid European Left can summon at will. This year, at any rate, bizarre sexual politics or obscurantism will have to take a bye.

Vargas in Stockholm and Xiaobo in Oslo both richly deserve their prizes, having earned them in the marketplace of ideas and political jousting. This somewhat gets away from the silly awards given to Obama and Carter and Gore and Krugman and other utterly second-rate dodos, including the one given Baradei, who singlehandedly allowed Iran to continue its development of a nuke weapon and got a Nobel in one of the sourest ironies of the long history of the Peace Prize.

Guy Sorman ends his short encomium of the unexpected dose of reality that the Nobel Committees have suddenly produced:
Many times in the past, the Nobel Committee has bestowed its Peace Prize on obscure characters in a commendable effort to represent the world’s diversity. In recognizing Liu, however, the committee has rejected any temptation for cultural and moral relativism and elevated a transcendent figure. Liu is a global citizen who fights for universal values: he happens to be Chinese, incarcerated in a Chinese jail. If he were from Zimbabwe or Venezuela, he would voice the same passion for liberty.

The Swedish Academy’s awarding of Mario Vargas Llosa with the Nobel Prize for Literature follows this same surprisingly enlightened pattern. Unlike the difficult, distant poets recognized in recent years, Vargas Llosa is an accessible novelist whose books are translated in most significant languages, often under his own supervision. Vargas Llosa is thus, like Liu, a global citizen. Like Liu, he rejects any notion of exoticism or cultural relativism. An indomitable freedom fighter in Latin America, he has always opposed the notion that authoritarianism—whether Cuban or Venezuelan—is essentially rooted in local culture. He has stood firmly against the political exploitation of ethnicity and skin color in Peru, Bolivia, and Venezuela. He shares with Liu Xiaobo a conviction that we are all human beings first, individuals belonging to a global civilization. The liberty that both men defend rightfully belongs to everyone and is not dependent on culture, ethnicity, or history.

There is another nice WSJ expert explaining that Vargas has always been against dictatorships fo either right or left, whereas most of the time, the Stockholm Committee doesn't mind writers like Marquez and Neruda who enthusiastically plump for LEFT-WING dictatorships

I for one don't think we'll see an American get the literature prize for a good while yet, which I personally would give to Don DeLillo---a balanced writer again, so that won't happen in my lifetime or perhaps ever. It may go to Philip Roth or some other prodigy of endurance or horror [Corman McCarthy comes to mind]. My old buddy Carlos Fuentes might get it next year, to balance out the conservative Vargas and stay away from the Eastern Hemisphere, but Carlos is a bit shallow and predictable and derivative, although he is a prince of a fellow. Next year, Bono may get the Prize and this too would be deserved and somewhat balanced, but U2 had better have another hit album or his star may recede across the water and sink in the Western Sea. Or the long-suffering and richly deserving Dalai Lama or even Archbishop Tutu, though like Bono, he's perhaps a bit overrated.

The Wall Street Journal has a succinct video summary of Vargas' career in a Review & Outlook piece:
Winners of the Nobel Prize in literature are typically distinguished by their literary obscurity, suffocating prose and left-wing politics. But every decade or so the prize-givers get it right: Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn in 1970, Czesław Miłosz in 1980, Octavio Paz in 1990, V.S. Naipaul in 2001. Right on schedule, this year's prize went to Peru's Mario Vargas Llosa.

Maybe there's a hidden codicil in the bylaws that every decade, like a broken clock, the Swedes fall out of bed without do9ing their usual worship of Satan. For whatever reason, for one short season, there is hope for the benighted Scandanavians.

Pakistan Implodes as Zardari, Military, ISI play double games

Pakistan is going to be a failed nation-state, according to a senior minister in the NWFP I had a long conversation with while drinking endless cups of tea a decade or so ago on my last trip to that country. And as the internal cohesion of the country is tested by catastrophic floods, a low-level civil war in which the army is now beginning to take sides against itself and the nation's police, and a president who is a complete fool and has the charisma left by his martyred wife Benazir Bhutto, but not much else, including brainpower, to keep him on top.

The Economist puts it as bluntly as possible:
Responding to growing public outrage over cross-border drone attacks by the American-led forces in Afghanistan and to revelations in a recent book by Bob Woodward that 3,000 CIA operatives are active in its tribal regions, Pakistan closed the main supply route for NATO convoys. The interior minister, Rehman Malik, said: “We will have to see whether we are allies or enemies.”

Of course, it's been obvious from the beginning of the Afghan presence that Pakistan sees that war-torn country as a pawn in the struggle with India, which the Waziristan base to make mischief inside Pakistan itself is an obviously low priority---yet the foolish Pakis insist that the US is encroaching on a territory over which they admittedly have little or no control:
Given the reluctance of the Pakistani authorities to take on the terrorist groups in North Waziristan, particularly the brutal Haqqani network that is believed to have links with Pakistan’s ISI (Inter-Services Intelligence agency), and given growing public fury over encroachments on the country’s sovereignty, the tension is unlikely to go away. Even the one potentially hopeful development this week—reports of American-backed secret talks between the Afghan Quetta Shura Taliban and the government of Hamid Karzai—could cause new strain if Pakistan reacts badly to being left out. A breakdown in relations between America and Pakistan is a real and dangerous possibility.

And if all implodes the way it looks now, the Pakistani Army, which is the only cohesive force in the country, will seize power and once again, the country will have forsaken democracy to pursue the internal demons which torment the country. And then that senior Paki minister's words might prove prophetic: Pakistan will be split into its four constituent provinces and India will have basically become unchallenged, but atomically armed Pakis will not stand for that.

Ergo, a war involving Pakistan & India might go nuclear, and then the fat's definitely in the fire. As Woodward's book outlines, Obama is very much into the details, but according to David Petraeus, so involved that he may become another Jimmy Carter in a Rose Garden of nit-picking and dithering, as Carter did before losing his re-election bid.

Tone-Deaf Obama Whines the GOP is Ignoring its own Pledge

This clown is even thicker than I thought.

This is the jug-eared tone-deaf POTUS at his tone-deaf worst. Does he see any Demo-rats bragging about his own administration's "accomplishments" like the 60% UNPOPULAR health care abomination/fiasco? Only Sen. Feingold who's getting his "lean-forward" behind paddled by a political unknown whose motivation for running was ObamaCare, pure and simple. Feingold started way in front, started touting ObamaCare and is now TWELVE POINTS BEHIND.

The MSM has buried the pledge, being stenographers for the MSM, most of America knows this according the Gallup, and this low-IQ POTUS thinks HE understands why. What a silly fool, pure and simple. The GOP doesn't need the "pledge" to whup his ass, and the butts of the Demo-rats. His first two years are enough for the Repubs to remind voters of, and another drop in employment numbers, which Gallup predicts the "official" numbers will be cooked down to below 10%, puts this guy over the magic 10-level, after PROMISING unemployment wouldn't go above 8% if Congress gave him the Porkulus Package.
