New Imus Issue: Context, People, Context

June 24, 2008
By

The Left is going bonkers over another comment by Don Imus. And I’m disappointed to see that even some conservative blogs are weighing in without any real perspective at all. One of Imus’s fairly consistent themes is that police regularly stop and or arrest blacks more often than whites –...

Carlin Now As Dead As His Career

June 23, 2008
By

There was actually a time when I liked George Carlin – back in the 70’s when he was fresh. The man did have a great creative mind and talent for comedy. Whenever I saw him in recent years, he was always spouting off about political garbage.

Not no mo.

The Timing Of Obama’s Race Play

June 21, 2008
By

I think the timing of Obama playing the race card could prove to be somewhat revealing of a portion of his general election strategy.

This is the first time Obama’s coverage has turned so completely negative due to his rejection of Public Financing.

So, what does he do? He attempts to make the...

Pol-O-tics, As Usual

June 19, 2008
By

Let’s see what the O-man has been up to, shall we?

Breaking his promise on public financing.

Oh, and he’s been caught shoving some supporters under the carpet because they were wearing head scarves.

He’s had to distance himself from any number of controversial and even criminal elements from his recent...

My AP Donation

Has someone spiked the AP’s watercoolers with drugs????

The pricing scale for excerpting AP content begins at $12.50 for 5-25 words and goes as high as $100 for 251 words and up. Nonprofit organizations and educational institutions enjoy a discounted rate.

Two-dollars and fifty cents per word? Pardon my French, but...

Obama: Can We Have A Be Kind To Terrorists Week?

June 17, 2008
By

Yeah, that’s what we want in a CIC – a guy who thinks we’re to blame for any and every growth in International terrorist numbers and wants to ensure they are all provided with the same due process any American citizen would be. Maybe his wife is so disappointed in America, ...

AP Guidelines: Shoot Self In Foot

June 16, 2008
By

Update: More from a blogger who talked to Cadenhead here.

If you haven’t been keeping up, the AP has a battle going with bloggers over Fair Use. It’s a battle they can’t win. I wonder if the dinosaurs displayed such futility when their climate started to change?

Instapundit has some new links.

Also ...

Not Ready For Prime Time

June 14, 2008
By

So, the transcendent political icon of our times, one dedicated to ending wars, bridging divides and healing past wounds, said:

"If they bring a knife to the fight, we bring a gun," Obama said at a fundraiser in Philadelphia Friday, according to pool reports.

Where to begin? He was in Philadelphia. If he...

Media Myopia

June 14, 2008
By

Meaning no disrespect to the late Tim Russert, or his family – the reality is, whenever something happens to a journalist, it seems to draw ten times more attention than the passing of any other prominent individual.

You can check out blog links on Russert via Memeorandum. Frankly, outside the field of...

Good Old Arch-Conservative, Me!

June 11, 2008
By

The Libs around here don’t believe that I’m independent and was actually pretty liberal myself, once. While I don’t do much biographical stuff on the blog, came across this old image of me from college and thought I’d post it. Actually, this was taken during my conversion from Lib to Con...

Ob-b-b-b, But … Oh, Yo Bama!

June 10, 2008
By

LMAO – Yes, the Obamessiah certainly does have an inspirational quality about him when he speaks. Unfortunately, sans teleprompter, he’s more likely to inspire the kids on the short bus that they, too can become president one day, as opposed to inspiring the average American to believe he will offer anything...

The World’s First Church?

June 10, 2008
By

Drudge has a Breitbart link to what some are calling the discovery of the world’s first church. There are some artifacts in the image with that story. The Jordan Times has an image of the cave structure and what are believed to be seats of stone.

AMMAN – Lying underneath Saint Georgeous...

Is Obam-Islamo-Ding-Dong A Hypocrite?

June 10, 2008
By

I’m telling you, Obama is turning out to be a real lightweight. He could end up being nothing more than proof of the failure of Affirmative Action. Unfortunately, the Republican nominee is so bad, Obama might just win this thing.

The NewsBuckit points to Obama’s latest hypocrisy.

Off And Running?

June 9, 2008
By

I imagine the Left is able to generate a good deal of enthusiasm around the pending general election. Pajamas Media has a good state of the race post up.

McCain doesn’t generate near that much enthusiasm across the Right, leaving them in step with much of the general electorate, which probably isn’t...

McCain / Lieberman?

June 5, 2008
By

Reading this item at TPM via Roll Call, Senator Lieberman looks to be doing two things: He is burning his bridges with the Democrat Party; and he is already acting like a VP candidate – playing the attack dog.

Yesterday, the news was McCain wants to go after former Hillary...

Fool If You Think It’s Over

June 5, 2008
By

I once had a girlfriend who liked the song, Fool if you think it’s over.

From the AP story on Hillary "ending" her bid:

This event will be held on Saturday to accommodate more of Senator Clinton’s supporters who want to attend," her communications director, Howard Wolfson, said.

Clinton is exploring options to...

Obama: Is Ambition Enough?

June 4, 2008
By

The notion that any young person should be able to grow up and become President in America is so much a part of our rhetoric, it’s a cliche. But in reality, most responsible adults assume there’s a bit more to becoming the President of the United States than simply...

Where Da “Whitey” Woman Tape At?

June 2, 2008
By

As of my last look around, still no actual tape of Michelle Obama using the expression "whitey" in a blast from the pulpit at Trinity Church. The latest development from Larry Johnson is the allegation that she was involved in a session there with Screwy Louie when the purported outburst...
