Morning Briefing for August 12, 2010
the Morning Briefing every morning at no charge.
Here is Nancy Pelosi’s twitter feed.Yesterday she wished Muslims celebrating Ramadan “joy, wisdom, and countless blessings.”On August 3rd, she wished the Sing Tao newspaper a happy 35th birthday.On July 6th Nancy Pelosi wished the Dalai Lama a happy 75th birthday.On July 4th the Speaker of the United States House of Representatives . . . oh, you’ve figured it out. Nancy Pelosi didn’t do a darn thing on Twitter for the 4th of July — no “Happy Birthday America” or “God/Allah/Aqua Buddha bless the USA” or anything else.Back on August 20th in 1984, Ambassador Jeane Kirkpatrick gave her famous “San Francisco Democrats” speech in which she said, among other things, “And now, the American people, proud of our country, proud of our freedom, proud of ourselves, will reject the San Francisco Democrats and send Ronald Reagan back to the White House.”This year we will yet again reject the San Francisco Democrats and send Republicans back to take over Congress.Please click here for the rest of the post.
Look, I get it. Dan and Marilyn Quayle are tremendous people. So when they call and say you should back their son who is running for Congress, you tend to say okay.But Ben Quayle is imploding. He did a “rent-a-family” mail piece purported showing him with his daughters, but he has none. Now, it turns out that Ben Quayle has a bit of a scandal on his hands.He helped set up a website called The Dirty and wrote there under the name of a porn star about all the hot chicks at Scottsdale, AZ nightclubs.His denial of the allegations also shows he’s a pretty bad liar.So all you conservatives who are wedded to Ben Quayle need to recognize that if conservatives split their vote, they’re going to wind up with someone like Vernon Parker who is trying to play conservative for the camera, but whose own constituents openly mock him as a liberal.There is a better choice: Pamela Gorman.Please click here for the rest of the post.
We’ve seen it splattered all across the front pages; more spending for jobs, more spending for bailouts, more spending for Unemployment, more spending for Teachers and Unions and special interests. We’ve also seen deficits rise and the National debt reach numbers that don’t fit on WalMart calculators.America is bankrupt and they (the ruling Political class) don’t even know it…or they don’t seem to care anyway. What else explains why they’d happily starve the “least among us” or force them to trample each other to death, fighting over a paltry scrap from the Master’s table?Please click here for the rest of the post.
Harry Reid once again demonstrates that it is OK to be a racial bigot, so long as you are a leftwing racial bigot.“I don’t know how anyone of Hispanic heritage could be a Republican, OK? Do I need to say more?” — Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV), August 10, 2010Earlier this year we learned that, in 2008, Reid suggested that Obama’s success was due in part to his “light-skinned”appearance and ability to turn on/off his “Negro dialect.” Because Reid is a leftwing bigot, the biased main stream media wing of the Democrat party gave Reid a pass for his racist remarks about Obama.

Over at Josh Marshall’s far Left Talking Points Memo blog, they’re all giddy over the latest bright idea to issue forth from the progressive mind; call Tea Partiers racists!Well, no … they already do that – they know Tea Partiers are racists and that the many people of other races who attend Tea Party rallies and speak on stage either are the product of Pixar magic, are white people in black face (racists!) or traitors to their race.The only problem is that simply calling people racists and relying on fellow progressive allies in the Press to carry it from there like in the good old days no longer is quite as effective as it used to be. Now, the American people (being racists) ask for proof – solid proof.Unfortunately, despite being ignorant unsophisticated inbred knuckle-dragging Neanderthals, Tea Partiers have cleverly been hiding their racism – proving how incredibly racist they are. As any progressive knows, only the most intensely bigoted of racists can hide their racism so deeply that even progressives, experts in all things racist, cannot manage to find it.Please click here for the rest of the post.
