Arianna Huffington calls on Biden to resign

    No, not because he’s a moron who can’t say two sentences without including something that’s offensive, obviously false, or plagiarized. Instead, she wants him to resign as a publicity stunt related to Afghanistan. Joe Biden met with CENTCOM chief Gen. David Petraeus this morning (note: that would be 10/14) to talk about Afghanistan — an issue that has pushed the vice president into the spotlight, | Read More »


    Did ACORN handle the Nobel Peace Prize voting?

    It sounds like the initial vote was 3-2 against Obama, so I guess they had to keep voting until they got it “right”. Three of the five members of the Norwegian Nobel Committee had objections to the Nobel Peace Prize being awarded to US President Barack Obama, the Norwegian tabloid Verdens Gang (VG) reported Thursday. “VG has spoken to a number of sources who confirmed | Read More »

    Leave it to “unbiased” Reuters to slant a story

    Let’s see…. Once again the hurricane forecasters were way too pessimistic. How to headline the story? – US thankful for quiet hurricane season – Hurricane forecasters proven wrong again – Is global warming a thing of the past? Nah, none of those would do. I would have expected maybe – Climate change complicates hurricane forecasting so they could get in a little “if it’s not | Read More »

    Final pre-vote speeches in Baucus committee are underway (UPDATE: Snowe is voting yes)

    The Democrats are all whining about the insurance industry report in their pre-vote speeches. Lincoln is trying to have it both ways of course – she’s voting for the Baucus Bill today but makes no promises about voting for the final bill as it ends up on the Senate floor.

    Romneycare Rationing

    From the diaries by Erick According to this Boston Globe article, the good ole Commonwealth of Mass is trying to save its universal health care plan — by doing pretty much the same sorts of things that liberals whine that HMOs and private insurance plans do. The state’s ambitious plan to shake up how providers are paid could have a hidden price for patients: Controlling | Read More »

    DiFi calls for more troops in Afghanistan

    I certainly didn’t see this coming. The article has more from Levin than from DiFi, but it also tosses in McGrahamCain to balance it out. Below are the parts with DiFi and Levin quotes. This seems like a big deal to me, as until now there has been zero comment from any influential Dems saying we need more troops there. Ike Skelton has taken McChrystal’s | Read More »

    NFL Union wants its multi-million-dollar salaries from someone other than Rush

    The St Louis Rams have displaced the Detroit Lions as the laughingstock of the league, but apparently the only thing this group of loser would find embarrassing would be if Rush was part of the ownership group who bought out the team. In an e-mail to the union’s executive committee on Saturday specifically addressing Limbaugh’s bid, Smith said, “I’ve spoken to the Commissioner [Roger Goodell] | Read More »

    If our troops in Afghanistan aren’t supposed to use their weapons anyway…

    then is it really a big deal if they don’t work? A jammed gun can’t shoot a civilian after all. In the chaos of an early morning assault on a remote U.S. outpost in eastern Afghanistan, Staff Sgt. Erich Phillips’ M4 carbine quit firing as militant forces surrounded the base. The machine gun he grabbed after tossing the rifle aside didn’t work either. When the | Read More »

    Another Obama “friend” crawls out from under a rock

    After the murder of that kid in Chicago was caught on video, Obama shipped off Holder and Duncan to make it looked like he was concerned. But there wasn’t much report nationally about how the actual leaders in that community were locked out of that meeting and instead they met with a few others including — you won’t believe it — Rev. Michael Pfleger. Community | Read More »

    ACORN steals money from firefighters – What’s the big deal?

    The VRWC arm of the media has been all over this one. Nearly $1 million in Homeland Security funding typically earmarked for fire departments has been awarded to ACORN, despite a clear signal from Congress that it intends to cut off federal funding to the embattled group. … It was one of only three such grants issued to the state and made up almost 80 | Read More »
