Would You Buy a Used Car From These Guys?

Would You Buy a Used Car From These Guys?

Like a used car salesman, giddy at the prospect of unloading an old Ford LTD, Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi, is flaunting yesterday’s Congressional Budget Office (CBO) score as proof that Utopia costs nothing. The tragedy is that many will believe her – at least until the interest rate resets to 39%, the baling […]

Racism Pitched as Possible Reason Israelis Don’t Like Obama

Yesterday on “Hardball”, Ethan Bronner, Jerusalem Bureau Chief for the New York Times, suggested that President Barack Obama’s flagging popularity in Israel may stem from racism. Here is the transcript from Newsbusters: CHRIS MATTHEWS: Let’s talk about politics.  Who’s more popular: Hillary Clinton, Bill Clinton, Barack Obama, Joe Biden? Put them in order.  Who’s the […]

Forget Rushmore – Put Obama on Yucca Mountain

 Yesterday President Obama airily round-filed the work of four former presidents and a taxpayer investment approaching 12 figures, when the Department of Energy (DOE) filed to withdraw the application for the completed underground nuclear waste repository at Yucca Mountain. I can see why the money isn’t an issue. Everyone knows that after inauguration the president […]

Senate Shenanigans Delay Critical Funding

  An avalanche of criticism erupted last week when embattled senate Democrats briefly delayed a bill to fund unemployment benefits for struggling families, physician reimbursements, and highway safety projects.  Insane, hypocritical, mean-spirited, obstructionist, and calloused were just some of the epithets directed at Capitol Hill via the media and blogosphere, when the senators brought the […]

Katty Kay Touts Discredited Study to Promote Government-Run Healthcare

    My apologies to Mark Twain, but God save us from liars, damn liars, and patronizing European journalists, like “BBC World News” Washington Correspondent, Katty Kay. Yesterday on “Meet the Press,” Kay implied that our current system denies Americans “access to a doctor if they don’t have insurance,” and also cited an oft-discredited study in […]

Jon Stewart – License to Lie

  How does Jon Stewart  get away with it?  Night after night he fictionalizes the actions and statements of conservatives, building goofy, moronic straw men which he then tears to pieces in a hyperkinetic frenzy of invective and ridicule.   For example last night, during a recap of yesterday’s Healthcare Summit, Stewart said Rep Eric Cantor […]

Biden’s Reality

    Apparently, now that Iraq is an island of relative sanity within a region seething with murderous hatred for America, Vice President Joe Biden has pronounced it one of the Obama administration’s “greatest achievements.”     Interesting that he should say that, since President Obama wasn’t in office during the darkest and most desperate months […]

Global warming alarmism stifles debate

  This week we witnessed an inspiring testament to the human spirit as intrepid Easterners dug themselves out of their snow-covered houses and driveways in a courageous quest to go on TV and squabble about Global Warming.   As I sat in front of the tube and observed all that fortitude and perseverance spewing about, I […]

Snapping at Palin

  Liberals divide people into two groups.  Those they think are smart and those they think are dumb as a doorknob.      Group 1 is a small, exclusive club, of which Sarah Palin is the latest member.  Group 2 is the rest of us.   Here is where it gets tricky. If you are in Group […]

Live and let live

Why does it bug atheists when others choose to have faith?   I’m scratching my head about that once again, in light of the current kafuffle at the Washington State Capitol Building. Governor Christine Gregoire approved a sign next to Christian and Jewish holiday displays, which states that faith in God “hardens hearts and enslaves […]

Palin’s power to prevail

       Alaska governor, Sarah Palin’s, entry into presidential politics last summer seemed to make Democrats a little, shall we say, defensive.    That was the impression I got, anyway, considering that they immediately declared DEFCON 50 and implemented the only version of the Strategic Defense Initiative the left will ever approve: insults and ridicule […]
