“The War Within: A Secret White House History 2006-2008″: a review
I just finished reading Bob Woodward’s “The War Within: A Secret White House History 2006-2008.” Typical Woodward in a lot of respects. It is about as substantial as cotton candy. The good guys are mostly the guys who talked to him (I say “mostly” because even though Bush granted a great deal of access there is no way a Washington Post employee is going to | Read More »
Washington Post Climbs Back In the Tank for Obama
One would have thought after five years of war reporterette Anne E. Kornbut would be somewhat clear on who exactly the combatants are in Iraq but then one would be working under the assumption that basic honesty and integrity are useful traits when you are in the tank for Barack Obama and writing a tawdry hit piece in his support. In a front page story | Read More »
NY Governor: Jesus Was Black
Barack Obama has been criticized for his career as a self-aggrandizing busybody, aka community organizer. Of late we’ve been told that Jesus the Christ was a community organizer (on the basis of what evidence I’m more than a little unclear), this presumably is to let us know just how IMPORTANT, nay VITAL, this job is. I mean if this syllogism is true your very salvation | Read More »

Former Cheerleader Campbell Brown Joins the Obama Campaign
Sometimes tiny slips of the tongue can be quite revealing. Today the Washington Post’s Howie Kurtz is making the McCain campaign out to be the bad guy for pushing back hard on some of the most scurrilous press coverage supposedly legitimate media have ever served up on a public figure: Alaska Governor and vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin. Naturally, Kurtz delves into the contretemps over | Read More »
John Kerry Attacks John McCain
As we discovered during the 2004 election, John Kerry is a man virtually devoid of honor. His non-existent mission into Cambodia to fight an guerilla group that did not then exist, his ability to get three wounds in less than six months — thereby getting his butt out of a combat zone — without a single day being spent in a hospital or in convalescence, | Read More »
FightTheSmears Smears Sarah Palin?
The official Obama campaign site dedicated to defending Obama from smears (like his long time membership is a racist afrocentric church, his long time association with an unabashed terrorist, and his hand in glove dealing with convicted felons — vile smears all of them) looks to have been working overtime on a smear campaign of its own. The details are at Little Green Footballs. It | Read More »
Nancy Pelosi’s War on Catholic Doctrine
Not content to be merely Speaker of the House, on Meet the Press last Sunday she elevated herself to Pope. MR. BROKAW: Senator Obama saying the question of when life begins is above his pay grade, whether you’re looking at it scientifically or theologically. If he were to come to you and say, “Help me out here, Madame Speaker. When does life begin?” what would | Read More »
Sure it takes a village, but this is ridiculous
How many “father figures” does Barack Obama have? The Rev Jeremiah Wright and now Frank Marshall Davis have laid claim to the title. What does it say about a man who’s attracted to racist demagogues and communists?
The Russian Game
“Nations have no permanent friends or allies, they only have permanent interests.” Lord Palmerston I’d like to take a few minutes out of the all-Biden-all-the-time coverage here and focus on the ongoing dismemberment of the Republic of Georgia by Russia. The purpose is not to dwell on that tragedy and the daily decreasing chances that the Georgia of three weeks ago will reemerge and the | Read More »
Joe Biden: Foreign Policy Savant
Other than comedic relief the only possible reason Barack Obama could have for choosing Joe Biden as his running mate (other than the obvious which is to reassure the political center that he will have a babysitter should he be elected president) is his alleged foreign policy expertise. Biden has a long track record in foreign policy that we will explore in the coming days. | Read More »
The John Edwards Update
Most major media still have an omerta in place in dealing with the extramarital hijinks of John Edwards, former candidate for the Democrat nomination for president. Because of this abrogation of responsibility we have to turn to a real investigative news source, the National Enquirer, for the news the alleged mainstream media will not touch. The day prior to Edwards bombshell admission to an affair | Read More »

Senator Obama’s Family Values or Charity Begins At Home
First Brothers. Gotta love ‘em. My gosh, who can forget Billy Carter, amateur brewmeister and registered agent of Muammar Khaddafi. Or the exploits of the uber-talented Roger Clinton. And the Rodham brothers. You’d have to look far and wide to find a more egregious pair of asshats (though heaven forbid one of them may be flirting with a McCain endorsement.) In the past, though, the | Read More »
Russia Threatens To Nuke Poland
From the AP: A top Russian general said Friday that Poland’s agreement to accept a U.S. missile defense battery exposes ex-communist nation to attack, possibly by nuclear weapons, the Interfax news agency reported. The statement by Gen. Anatoly Nogovitsyn is the strongest threat that Russia has issued against the plans to put missile defense elements in former Soviet satellite nations. Poland and the United States | Read More »
Jerome Corsi Draws Blood
The New York Times bestseller The Obama Nation by Jerome Corsi is drawing blood if the caterwauling from many of the usual suspects in any clue. The AP essentially reprints Obama’s response to the book as a news story but the lede is interesting: Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama hit back Thursday with a 40-page rebuttal to the best-selling book “The Obama Nation,” arguing the | Read More »
