Gates Has Ayes

Defense Secretary Robert Gates said today that he agrees with Obama’s decision to replace Gen. Stanley McChrystal as the top US commander in Afghanistan. Of course he does. McChrystal just demonstrated what happens to people that disagree with Obama. Technically, McChrystal ‘resigned‘, but in actuality McChrystal ‘got resigned‘. There’s a big difference, and Gates didn’t … Continue reading

An Ounce of Prevention

I had an awesome idea for a post today. It was going to all about how the jury on ‘Anthropogenic Global Warming’ is still out and how we can’t spend billions and billions of dollars on some crackpot theory that a bunch of ‘climate scientists’ are pushing. At the same time as they’re getting tons … Continue reading

Poll: Is Alvin Greene a Republican plant?

There’s been a lot of controversy about the Alvin Greene victory in the South Carolina democrat primary for the Senate. Not many people had heard of Greene before his victory, and yet he pulled out an impressive win. After the primary, it came out that Greene has pending felony obscenity charges against him, that he … Continue reading

The Future of the democrat Party

I don’t see the big deal. Thursday night, Keith Olbermann had an interview with Alvin Greene, the man who won the democratic nomination to run for the Senate in South Carolina. Here’s a link to the video (link). Watch it. You won’t be sorry. He seemed disconnected from reality, took most of his answers from … Continue reading

I Never Thought Of That

Sometimes you hear an idea so perfectly formed that you wonder why it’s not already the common wisdom. It seems obvious in retrospect, and yet it’s truth has eluded all but one genius. I found the image on the right on the internet today. I was stunned. This explains everything. Why BP was allowed to … Continue reading

Not Qualified For Office

Well, here’s an early taste of the 2010 election for you: Orly Taitz may well be the Republican candidate for California Attorney General. For those not in the know, Orly Taitz is perhaps the prototypical Birther. She’s racked up at least $20,000 in court fines for filing frivolous lawsuits challenging Barack Obama’s right to be … Continue reading

I Apologize, But Only If You Take Offense

I am confused. And outraged. Mainly outraged, and then confused. South Carolina State Senator John M. “Jake” Knotts Jr. (whew!) said last Thursday on a local radio show: “We already got one raghead in the White House — we don’t need another in the governor’s mansion … She’s a raghead that’s ashamed of her religion … Continue reading

Poll: Was the Deepwater Horizon spill preventable?

There are a lot of negative Nellies out there lamenting the destruction of the Gulf Coast ecosystem. But they should be asking themselves whether the spill was preventable in the first place. Rep. Tom Cole (R-OK) says no: “We probably should have forced BP to mobilize more in the way of vessels. There’s still a … Continue reading

Worst Case Scenario

There’s been a lot of talk lately about the Transocean Deepwater Horizon/BP oil leak in the Gulf of Mexico. From Bloomberg: “The worst-case scenario is Christmas time,” Dan Pickering, the head of research at energy investor Tudor Pickering Holt & Co. in Houston, said. “This process is teaching us to be skeptical of deadlines.” Actually, … Continue reading

Vier mehr Tage! Vier mehr Tage!

Okay, so apparently not all of you prepared for the end of WWII the same way I did. I wrote yesterday about why Horst Köhler, the former President of Germany, resigned Monday. In doing so, I quoted the statements that proved to be his undoing, but didn’t translate them from German. So what he said … Continue reading
