NJ’s Corzine: How Bad Is It?

August 31, 2009
By

Two angles to pursue in the Politico item linked below. The AFL-CIO and other unions are already making serious moves to back Democrats in NJ and VA in the off year elections. No surprise, but just how bad do they want to make New Jersey? Soon, there won't be anyone...

Finally, Polar Bears We Can Kill By Hand

August 31, 2009
By

Ever wonder why when Mr. or Mrs. Polar Bear is chasing Mr. Eskimo, or American tourist, it's perfectly fine because they's just doing their thing.

Sure, but let some poor fellow take out after one of them with a 30.06 and he's evil incarnate, or something like that. If God didn't...

Sarah Palin To Speak In Hong Kong

August 31, 2009
By

How long before the Left strips out the detail of both Clinton and Gore having spoken there, so they can denounce Sarah Palin as embarking on a global chase for the bucks? 5 … 4… 3 …

Closed to the press.

HONG KONG — Former U.S. vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin, once questioned...

GM: What’s Wrong With This Picture?

August 31, 2009
By

Am I missing something here? On June 9, the WSJ headline was: GM collapses into government's, read taxpayer's, arms.

This is in the headlines today. Sure, I understand how it makes business sense to GM. But I don't much like subsidizing large corporations to take their businesses offshore. We should have let the...

Ridge: Sorry, Just Trying To Sell My Book

August 31, 2009
By

These folks always buy in to the publisher's hype because they want their book to sell big. But then they almost always try and walk it back a bit so as not to burn their reputations to the ground. Typical political hack. And his core business is cashing in on his...

Who Glenn Greenwald Forgot

August 31, 2009
By

Glenn Greenwald is supposedly upset at the concept of American Royalty. Notice anyone he may have left out?

They should convene a panel for the next Meet the Press with Jenna Bush Hager, Luke Russert, Liz Cheney, Megan McCain and Jonah Goldberg, and they should have Chris Wallace moderate it....

Goodbye War In Afghanistan?

August 31, 2009
By

A leaked report by General McChrystal to be presented to Obama this week looks like the beginning of a crucial turning point when it comes to Afghanistan. It labels the overall strategy basically a complete failure as it exists. While McChrystal stops short of requesting more troops in it, he's expected to do just that.

With...

Taking Conor Freakin’Dork To A Higher Level

August 31, 2009
By

Sorry readers, I realize this is a waste of time. But our boy Conor is back in comments whining about discussion at some higher level. In his dreams….

Any such level is obviously one at which he is simply unqualified to engage. Unfortunately, I can only presume him incapable of reaching any such...

Transcript of Cheney on ‘FOX News Sunday’

August 30, 2009
By

You can read the rest here.

WALLACE: This is your first interview since Attorney General Holder named a prosecutor to investigate possible CIA abuses of terror detainees.

What do you think of that decision?

CHENEY: I think it's a terrible decision. President Obama made the announcement some weeks ago that this...

Conor Freakin’Dork is Back

August 29, 2009
By

Well, I guess I'm stuck having to say something about Conor (with one N) Freakin'Dork. I need a new blog category for him, should it be insipidness, or stupidity? So many questions, so little time.

The pup took a shot at me directly on the 23rd and I ignored it, such is...

Reuters: CIA Case Unproductive Landmine For Obama

August 29, 2009
By

Reuters interviewed several experts for a fairly thorugh piece on any potential CIA interrogation prosecutions. Convictions won't be easy and it's an issue that doesn't work to Obama's favor right now about sums it up.

Keep digging guys, the Republicans could probably use the help.

"It's almost a no-win," said Larry Sabato, a...

SC GOP Talking Impeachment For Sanford

August 29, 2009
By

The angry mob.

Rep. Greg Delleney says Sanford should be impeached solely because he disappeared from the state for five days in June to see his mistress in Argentina without leaving anyone clearly in control.

Rep. Annette Young says after an ethics investigation into Sanford's travel is completed, the Legislature...

Should Deval Patrick Change The Rules?

August 28, 2009
By

Pretend for a moment that corrupt liberal Democrats actually give a flip about what the people think. Can you blame them? There are rarely any consequences given a dishonest media unwilling to report their corruption. Imagine if Bill Richardson were a Republican and walked, as he just did, under Bush. We'd be reading...

Cuba, Honduras, Obama And The Democrats

August 28, 2009
By

I'm less concerned about what this all means in terms of Cuba, than how it begins to play out in the Middle-East, Europe and Asia. We will likely be abandoning some friendships and strengthening our enemies at taxpayer expense under Obama more significantly than we have ever done before, even under...

Bill Richardson: Why The Fix Was In

August 28, 2009
By

It appears there may be at least two reasons why Richardson was always going to walk. Not only has he been positioning himself to lead talks between Cuba and the US – he's been in Cuba all week - the scandal might be part of a fairly broad one involving a large number...

Is Messaging Exoplanet A Good Idea?

August 28, 2009
By

Glenn Reynolds links to an item on our sending messages to a far off water-covered exoplanet and asks if it's a good idea.

"It may be covered by a large and deep ocean and is the first serious ‘waterworld’ candidate discovered beyond our Solar System". Is this a good idea?

While unsure of how...

Joint Chiefs: America Arrogant, Uncaring, Insulting To Muslims

August 28, 2009
By

I especially love the last bit from a Holbrooke trip to Pakistan during which he was told that America is despised as we appear to be obsessed with capturing and killing Osama bin Laden. Yeah, why in the world should Americans care about that when what we really need to do is...

CNN: Code Red Terror Alert For Anti-Abortion Protest

August 28, 2009
By

If they want to do an item on this guy's concern over an upcoming protest, fine. But I'm growing tired of all these comparisons of conservative groups to terrorists, whatever their particular agenda might be. The main agenda here is obviously CNN's.

BELLEVUE, Nebraska (CNN) — If LeRoy Carhart's abortion...

Handling Tele-marketers

August 28, 2009
By

Other commenters seem to like Peg C's device for handling tele-marketers these days from the discussion thread for my Census taking post. Having worked various types of jobs before and during college to pay my way, I was in a family's home doing some minor electrical repair work one evening and had the...
