More On Murat Kurnaz

March 28, 2008
By

I previously linked this 60 Minutes bit scheduled for March 30th. Then I checked into the story of Kurnaz. It doesn’t even qualify as news. The disputed story has been well reported as far back as 2005. Kurnaz wrote a 285 page book in 2007. Why 60 Minutes thinks...

LOL Turns Out Jeremiah Wright’s All White After All

March 28, 2008
By

From an email tip – there’s something you might find interesting as regards this curious land deal putting Obama’s pastor in a $1.6 Million dollar home in Tinley Park, IL. for his retirement. Checking the census data for Tinley Park, a gated community, I’m told, it seems the pastor from the...

Nothing like ending the week on an upbeat note.

(CBS) A German resident held by the U.S. for almost five years tells 60 Minutes correspondent Scott Pelley that Americans tortured him in many ways – including hanging him from the ceiling for five days early in his captivity when he was in...

Obamoron?

March 28, 2008
By

Obama does better when he does nothing and simply lets the media shill for him. Not only does he keep Wright in the news, it appears he’s lying, too.

Dumb … just dumb. Or Dumbo, if you prefer, given his ears.

Michelle has the video and details. I downloaded the torrent via Hot Air’s link.

It isn’t very long, basically contrasting particular verses from the Koran with real world acts of Muslim extremists. From there it moves into demographics in Europe. That’s a very different problem than we have in America today....

Vietnam War Memorial Wall Goes Virtual

March 27, 2008

I must have missed this in the news. Link via Richie at the MLK Foundation blog.

The virtual version of the famous memorial — which is a pair of 246-foot black granite walls inscribed with the names of more than 58,000 American military casualties — is searchable.

The Gurl’s Got Game

Hillary’s got game, you have to give her that – Hot Air has two pertinent video clips.

If you think about it, given the importance of the presidency, if you’ve come this far, should you ever really just walk away if you have any kind of shot?

What I wonder is, has...

You mean toothless rednecks actually vote Democrat? Who knew? Not my liberal commenters, apparently.

WASHINGTON (Map, News) – If Hillary Clinton means to hold on to her 10 percent chance at the Democratic nomination, she will have to sweep through Appalachia like an Ohio River flood.

And she may well do it, because...

Has to be the NY Post on Spitzer. I went to college with one of the by-lined journo’s. lol Not what they thought they’d be writing about one day, I suspect.

Couple quick asides before I link this. One topic in particular has been on my mind.I am convinced that liberals are, for the most part, masochistic, which leads into my second but main point.

While it may fall to a generation of freedom loving conservatives as yet unborn, we should take...

Just how liberal is Barack Obama? This liberal.

It’ll play well with the college kids and the loony Left, at least until enough of them have to work for a living.

Was Alleged Racist Tea Ad “Too Hot?”

March 26, 2008
By

I wish this could be chalked up to British humor, but it’s for real. Fortunately, the ad was determined to not be racist. But it’s frightening, if not unexpected for the UK, that something like this would even become an issue.

I’m glad we had a little tea...

Actor Richard Widmark has passed away. He did some good work. Career info.

He was 93 years old.

Does Obama Have An Israel Problem?

March 26, 2008
By

If Obama doesn’t have an Israel problem already because of Jeremiah Wright, undoubtedly Hillary would like to give him one.

This Trinity United Church of Christ newsletter (PDF link) from last June seems to be making the rounds in Jewish circles. I have now had it e-mailed to me three...

Well, this is just stupid. But it isn’t stopping the media from proclaiming "he’s" pregnant. "Thomas" Beatie is a woman who only went part way with a gender re-assignment process and Beatie is now claiming "he" is pregnant. The Advocate item here.

Wright Spin’s Out Of Control

March 26, 2008
By

The spin around the cancellation of a three-day speaking engagement by Obama’s former pastor Jeremiah Wright looks just a tad out of control. Hopefully Obama will do better at spin control if he ever gains the White House.

From here we learn that Wright’s scheduled appearance had mostly become too distracting, despite...

Forest Lake Principal Steve Massey Is A Hypocrite

March 25, 2008
By

After reading about this outrageous decision, I decided to look into the principal’s background, only to see if he’s had a problem with politics in education before. It seems safe to assume he’s been fine with it in the past, as long as the politics were liberal.

Ugly Politics

March 24, 2008
By

I can’t remember a time when looking at politics was so ugly.

I may go back to blogging politics and crime. At least crime was interesting. We’ve been beating the same themes on both the Republican and Democrat side this year, it’s getting boring as hell for me to blog.
