Obama Lies at an 8th-Grade Level
Funny, I thought it would have been much higher than that: (via HotAir) However, a Smart Politics analysis of nearly 70 oral State of the Union Addresses since the mid-1930s finds the text of Obama’s speech on Wednesday evening to have one of the lowest scores on the Flesch-Kincaid readability test ever recorded by a U.S. President. The Flesch-Kincaid test is designed to assess the | Read More »
The “Elitistated Class”
What is it? (via HotAir) David Brooks is a blithering idiot. Period. Fully aware of sounding like a pompous ass myself, by whatever metric you choose to measure intelligence, I would dust Brooks twice on any topic before breakfast. And yet, I’m likewise quite certain that I’m not a part of this “educated class”: The public is not only shifting from left to right. Every | Read More »
Call it a Moment of Silence
In recognition of the vegetative state in which the Constitutional Republic known as the United States of America presently finds itself. Considering the worldwide ramifications of such a demise, should it come, I’d say four days of mourning is actually a little short…dont’cha think? Is this really what people think was intended when we ratified the Constitution? Open-air fraud, hundreds of millions of dollars in | Read More »
You’re a “Partisan Ally”…Get used to it.
I’m conflicted on which way to go with this: As we head into the final stretch on health reform, big insurance company lobbyists and their partisan allies hope that their relentless attacks and millions of dollars can intimidate us into accepting the status quo. So I have a message for them, from all of us: Not this time. We have come too far. We will | Read More »
Taliban to Obama: Thanks for the Gameplan Pal.
Dr. Walid Phares, (learn his name), director of the Future Terrorism Project at the Foundation for Defense of Democracies and author of “The Confrontation: Winning the War against Future Jihad”, has a post at the Counter Terrorism blog about the inevitable counter-counter terrorism strategy of the Taliban now that they know we’ll be out sooner than later: The jihadi war room is now aware that | Read More »
“Rule by the Best and Brightest”
Huh? In an otherwise excellent article on perhaps the fundamental difference between liberals and conservatives, William McGurn continues to make the same mistake so many on their side and the Brooks/Frum Axis of Stupid on our side has made all along; Obama and his cabinet/czars/advisors are not the "best and the brightest". They are, maybe, relatively more ‘intelligent’ than the average IQ but to a | Read More »
If there is one, this is it. Pakistan, (or Pok-eee-ston as our Dear Leader in his infinite sophistication insists it be pronounced), has been for a while, is now and will be the X-factor for strategic command going forward in Afghanistan. Now that Obama has made his call to send 30,000 (or is it 33? 35?) troops there for 18 months (or is a little | Read More »
Sound Afghanistan Analysis from…..the Daily Beast?
Huh? Dude, Obama is turning this world completely upside down. The DB, for those who don’t know, is kind of a consortium of wishy-washy small-’c’ conservatives comprised of pseudo-intellectuals, Frum-esque charlatans and, of course, the Queen of Young and Restless Conservatism, that stalwart of the middle and unashamedly self-congratulatory Daughter of Maverick…the Blonde Muppet herself, Meghan McCain. (Incidentally, Meggie Mac rests much of her alleged | Read More »
Is this a new 34,000 troops to Afghanistan?
Hmmm… My first question is whether this 34,000 is the same as this 34,000. Is this just another leak that won’t pan out? Why do we have to wait until December 1 to get the announcement? I think this 34,000 is the same as the support troops increase he announced in October, but perhaps with an added component of combat troops. The word “combat” shows up only | Read More »
Obama’s “ugly 20′s” handicap is the biggest lie yet.
On a lighter note… There is no way on this Earth that Obama is playing to a “mid-20′s” handicap.What that means, basically, is that he is consistently hitting three strokes under 100 over a par-72 18 holes, a feat that isn’t accomplished often even for “serious recreational golfers”. As an example, I’ve broken 100 only three times in probably somewhere north of 60 rounds of Golf, and | Read More »
