White coats at White House commit malpractice

March began with white coated doctors at the White House, unable to reconcile the lies of a rabid socialized-medicine hound, committing malpractice by failing to first do no harm by clothing the big-eared, self-described mutt in a strait jacket.

We hope Sandra Bullock Blind Sides Oscar’s dogs tonight, but Braves-Gamecock hopes the madness continues with his undergraduate alma mater’s Terriers making the Big dance for the first time:

Since moving to Division I in 1995, the Wofford men’s basketball team has never made the NCAA tournament.

But this might be the year.

“I would streak back to Radford if that were to happen,” said Wofford coach Mike Young, a Radford High School graduate.

Young, 47, has steered Wofford (21-8, 13-3 Southern Conference) to its first 20-win season at the Division I level.

“There’s a lot of things to enjoy with a Heineken in hand this spring, but still a lot to accomplish,” said Young, an Emory & Henry graduate.

The winner of Thursday’s game between Wofford and visiting College of Charleston (19-9, 13-3) will clinch the SoCon regular-season title — and an automatic bid to the NIT, should that team not win the automatic NCAA bid that goes to the SoCon tournament champ. Wofford has never been to the NIT, either.

Wofford, a Spartanburg, S.C., school with just 1,439 students, has won eight straight since losing to Bobby Cremins’ College of Charleston squad 70-68 last month.

Wofford’s first win over our law school alma mater’s Gamecocks since 1939 earlier this year defined the regular season.

Last year’s leading Southern Conference  March Madness star now an NBA sensation

I thought Davidson’s Stephen Curry might have been too small to make in the land of giants. Happily, I was wrong

Burning question for April: Will Cockstradamus be right about Tiger at the Masters and baseball happening every Spring. I think so.

We can see the State Capitol from atop the rock MLK memorialized, but what we can’t see and wish we could, are:

Bleeding heart liberal public college professors willing to bleed their fat wallets to ensure that more low income students won’t face tuition hikes due to the Peach State’s massive budget shortfall;

Ethics legislation passed into law that protects us from rotten peaches, despite the lack of recent headlines about lobbyist-legislator incest.; and

Rep. Stephanie Stuckey Benfield’s (D-85) criminal records expungement bill passed into law.

Camel-not’s King doesn’t know Jack

(H/T to Rush Limbaugh’s parody with Bill Clinton as Merlin the Magician suggesting that King Obama and his square pegs’ poor fit at JFK’s Round Table.)

Jack Kennedy wouldn’t have prosecuted Justice Department lawyers and the CIA interrogators they advised for swabbing the nose of 911′s architect; Navy Seals that rubbed the tummy of terrorist murderers; nor read  the BVD-bomber Miranda rights while dismissing charges against ACORN pimps and New Black Panther voter intimidation thugs.

Evan Bayh wouldn’t have felt the need to give up a safe senate seat due to disgust with a JFK-led Democratic Party. One only wishes Bayh had the courage to have waved bye-bye to the blood-sucking vampire of a Dem-o-Bat party rather than bemoaning a supposed “broken” Washington just as We the People were exerting our will to fix D.C.

This all reminds this rooster of H. L. Menchen’s description of the World’s Oldest political party as jackals worshipping jack asses.

Finally, with more hat tips to Rush and Mark Steyn: Want to see a non-strait-jacketed ObamaCare future? See Greece:

While Barack Obama was making his latest pitch for a brand new, even more unsustainable entitlement at the health care “summit,” thousands of Greeks took to the streets to riot. An enterprising cable network might have shown the two scenes on a continuous split-screen – because they’re part of the same story. It’s just that Greece is a little further along in the plot: They’re at the point where the canoe is about to plunge over the falls. America is further upstream and can still pull for shore, but has decided, instead, that what it needs to do is catch up with the Greek canoe. Chapter One (the introduction of unsustainable entitlements) leads eventually to Chapter 20 (total societal collapse): The Greeks are at Chapter 17 or 18.

What’s happening in the developed world today isn’t so very hard to understand: The 20th century Bismarckian welfare state has run out of people to stick it to. In America, the feckless insatiable boobs in Washington, Sacramento, Albany and elsewhere are screwing over our kids and grandkids. In Europe, they’ve reached the next stage in social democratic evolution: There are no kids or grandkids to screw over. The United States has a fertility rate of around 2.1 – or just over two kids per couple. Greece has a fertility rate of about 1.3: 10 grandparents have six kids have four grandkids – i.e., the family tree is upside down. Demographers call 1.3 “lowest-low” fertility – the point from which no society has ever recovered. And, compared with Spain and Italy, Greece has the least-worst fertility rate in Mediterranean Europe.
