God Bless Nancy Pelosi

Oh, never mind “If anybody’s going to apologize, everybody should apologize,” she said when asked Thursday about Rep. Alan Grayson’s comments on the House floor earlier this week. Just two weeks ago, caustic rhetoric surrounding health care reminded Nancy of the violent debate over gay rights in San Francisco in the 70′s. She was afraid someone might get hurt. Now t...

Absurd

Wrong “Though faced with potential limits from the high court on their ability to enact laws and regulations in this area, 34 states weighed in on the gun- rights side before the justices agreed to take the case Wednesday, an indication of the enduring strength of the National Rifle Association and its allies.” This time, the entire sentence stinks but certainly the second half of it d...

Dear Congress: Please pass sweeping liberal health care reform. Love, David Espo, Associated Press… The lead to this “story” might as well have been written in crayon. “Liberal Democrats failed Tuesday to inject a government-run insurance option into sweeping health care legislation taking shape in the Senate Finance Committee, despite widespread accusations that private ...

The French?

Sarkozy “Nicolas Sarkozy, the French president, came close to mocking his American counterpart for the good intentions, which Mr Obama had heralded as an “historic” step towards nuclear abolition, even though it set no specific targets or fresh mandates. “We live in a real world not a virtual world,” the Frenchman told the 15-member council. “And the real world ...

We The Peons

Oh, crap. “But many of those cashing in on the clunkers program are surprised when they get to the treasurer’s office windows. That’s because the government’s rebate of up to $4500 dollars for every clunker is taxable, as a state excise tax.” A crappy idea turned into a crappy policy and executed like utter crap. This government can’t even properly execute the ... [More]

Earth To Barack:

by Admin | Tags:
Yet despite so many weeks of speeches, town halls and interviews, Obama said he has found it difficult at times to make a complex topic clear and relevant. “I’ve tried to keep it digestible,” Obama said. “It’s very hard for people to get their arms around it. And that’s been a case where I have been humbled and I just keep on trying harder.” More turd pol... [More]

Selective Memory

by Admin | Tags:
“House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said Thursday that the anti-government rhetoric over President Barack Obama’s health care reform effort is concerning because it reminds her of the violent debate over gay rights that roiled San Francisco in the 1970s.” I’d like to thank the AP for yet another story conceived entirely out of thin air for the benefit of left wing causes. Seriousl... [More]

ACORN

by Admin | Tags:
Evil Republicans Strike Again! The relentless attacks on ACORN’s members, its staff and the policies and positions we promote are unprecedented. An international entertainment conglomerate, disguising itself as a “news” agency (Fox), has expended millions, if not tens of millions of dollars, in their attempt to destroy the largest community organization of Black, Latino, poor and...

Amid much praise and controversy President Jupiter (larger than life appearance, massive reputation, mostly hot air) recently spoke to the children of America. Just as Ronald Reagan and John F. Kennedy lifted their “city on a hill” phrase from the 17th Century sermons of puritan John Winthrop, so our current Commander in Chief turns to our colorful past for influence and content. Has...

Well, it's over now…

Yawn “The night’s defining moment — which Democrats hope to transform into a turning point – came when Rep. Joe Wilson (R-S.C.) shouted “You lie!” as Obama claimed his plan wouldn’t offer free care to illegal immigrants.” He meant to say “the nightly defining moment.” Every ten minutes there’s another headline story insisting that this time, ...
