“Robert Byrd & His Racist Party”
Daniel J. Flynn has the top story today at Human Events: Robert Byrd’s death severs the Democratic Party’s most glaring link to its racist past. Rather than let the party’s embarrassing past fade from memory with Robert Byrd, party heavyweights have lamely obfuscated their former senate majority leader’s past as a “Kleagle” and an “Exalted Cyclops” in the Ku Klux Klan. “He once had a | Read More »
Pelosi to Disruptors: Your advocacy is very American
So disruptions and outbursts interrupt Pelosi discussing National Security to a San Fran crowd, and not only does she encourage them, she specifically calls their disruption “very American” and claims she’s “a fan” of disruptors. You got that, mob? If you’re a SanFranLib screaming BushLied™!1!1!1!!!!!1! then you are THE BOMB. But if you are a concerned senior citizen telling Snarlin’ Arlen to stuff it you | Read More »
OBAMA IS HITLER!!!!
Let us, for the moment, leave aside the question of why the media suddenly doesn’t like comparing the President to Hitler. Instead, let us today address the more pressing question of why the media doesn’t like facts. If you believe Nancy Pelosi, Rep. John Dingell, little girls totally not planted at Obama town halls, and “reporters” asking Gibbs “questions” at today’s White House “briefing,” then | Read More »

HuffPo’s Frank Schaeffer to Obama: Purge The Heretics
Much was made, during storied campaign 2008, of the notion that we are all one people, needlessly divided. That from the many would come the one. There is not a liberal America, and a conservative America, there is the United States of America, after all. Heal this nation, we heard. Make us one, they pleaded. A lovely sentimentality, that. And an utterly false affectation, of | Read More »
Yes We Can!
I wrote last week about how I see the behavior of voters in light of our media saturation environment. Today I saw a video, which many of you have no doubt seen before, that really highlights some of what I was talking about. You have to slog through the first minute or two as the interviewer is determined to ask each of the 12 respondents | Read More »
September 11th for Demmies
Graphic Posted at DailyKos “All this 9/11 worship is ghoulish and downright silly” So says a blogger from Daily Kos, along with the graphic seen here, in a disturbing thread (via Ace) which has since been redacted by the Kossak powers-that-be. You would think posting this graphic would have the blogger roundly condemned, and you would, of course, be wrong. Fellow commenters provided a split | Read More »
Fowler Fouls: Hurricane is God’s Favor to Democrats
UPDATE (see below for SC GOP Statement) On a plane from Denver to Charlotte following the Democrats’ convention, I found myself seated behind former National Chairman of the Democratic National Committee Don Fowler and Congressman John Spratt of South Carolina.
