He Is The Way?

The press is beginning to notice, but where have they been?

I first started talking about Obamamania being a borderline religion months ago. I took particular note right after Oprah, a woman I respect very much for her personal accomplishments and generosity, told us we had the chance to "vote the hope". The constant Biblical references, often times using lines straight from Isaiah and the Four Gospels, seemed to me to be amazingly transparent, that any even casual Christian would notice, but apparently not to others.

And yet while his speeches inspired and his supporters swooned with hands raised aloft, they were amazingly devoid of content, policy, and direction, other than platitudes that are most often found in speeches written by teenagers running for student council ("We need to raise up hope, we need to look forward, not backwards"). And when asked to be more specific, his programs made little sense. Where was the beef?

Now, Hillary supporters are beginning to notice. Perhaps too late. Perhaps because such language was foreign to them, which would not surprise me. As I have said for months, Obama does Southern Baptist Preacher better than the Southern Baptist Preacher running for President.

It's All About The Stimulus

Feeling frisky yet (economically speaking of course)? Congress knows how to stimulate you. I prefer Glenn Reynolds line instead:

BAH: "Stimulus" bill passes. More properly known as the "buying votes with borrowed money" bill.

Moms Being Moms


Reminds me of the old days. My guess is this young man will grow up to be one fine person and he can thank his Mom for it.
This young boy might feel embarassed but I think very highly of him. He took his punishment and showed more character than most kids his age. Kudos to Mom ... Double Kudos to the young man.

Keeping Connecticut Safe From Cell Phone Companies

Connecticut Democrats want to froce cell phone companies to charge by the second and not minute. The only problem is ... once again it's not their job.

Attorney General Richard Blumenthal said the Federal Communications Commission has legal jurisdiction over wireless phone companies.

Let's see ... can't keep criminals in jail, can't safeguard private property, won't cap property taxes ... but we can keep the state safe from Pepsi ... and evil phone companies.

No question consumers need to be vigilant when it comes to cell phone charges ... not the least of which are all of the taxes the GOVERNMENT piles on your bill!

Air America Hate Speech And More

John has some great quick hits this morning ... including Air America hate speach again. Sorry folks ... shock radio just wont get you ratings ... just scorn. It's just not funny. Really.

Here's a sample: ANNOUNCER: The following is a paid advertisement from Republicans for Mitt Romney, or mass suicide. If John McCain is the Republican Presidential nominee, it will destroy the Republican Party. We’re Romney supporters and we know. Cause, if you vote for John McCain, we’re going to go on a killing rampage. Hey, better dead then moderate.”

But Really ... if a tree fell in the forest and ... well you get the idea.

No, seriously ... that's what this guy wants to do. Hot Air has the best line:

"A great leap forward. I always figured we’d “progress” from taxation to carbon rationing to reproductive rationing (front end or back end) and then to imprisonment, but this movement has an inertia all its own."

Cornyn Endorses McCain? What?

Just got this e-mail. I like Senator John Cornyn and I am frankly shocked. Remember when McCain told Cornyn to "F" off? If not ... here's the reference.


Here's what Senator Cornyn says now:
“In this time of war and economic uncertainty, America must have strong, principled leadership. National security is the first and most important priority of the federal government. We must have a President who will be a leader in the war on terrorism, who will do what is needed to protect our country and its people, and who will not buckle when the political waters become rough. In the Senate Armed Services Committee, and on the Senate floor, I have seen firsthand that John McCain has been right on critical national security issues. He is clearly the man for the job."

Politics ... I will never understand it.

It's Man Bear Pig

This time though its John Kerry blaming the tornados on Global warming. The Business and Media Institute does a little digging and comes up with this:

"Roger Edwards, a meteorologist at the Storm Prediction Center of the National Weather Center in Norman, Okla., has doubts about any global warming and tornado relationship.
“As of this writing, no scientific studies solidly relate climatic global temperature trends to tornadoes,” Edwards
wrote on the Earth & Sky Web site in April 2007. “I don’t expect any such results in the near future either, because tornadoes are too small, short–lived, hard to measure and count, and too dependent on day to day, even minute to minute "


Meanwhile we have record snow in the midwest and record cold earlier in the week. What could be the culprit? How about La Nina.

I tell him I'm a registered Republican, at which point he announces to the entire table, "Oh, this guy's a Republican," as if it's been six generations since they've seen such a thing. In fact, one of the other workers says, "A Republican? Really?" I want to make it clear: This wasn't a case of voter intimidation. It wasn't as if the poll workers said, "Ewwww, is there slime coming out of his butt" or "Oh, so that's what Satan smells like." No, it was more a sound of amazement.

Personality Rundown

Victor Davis Hanson has a nice roundup of the various personalitites involved in this years election. Here's a peak.
Mr. McCain
I’m neither a political scientist nor working for any particular candidate. Instead, as a historian I simply look at the Republican race empirically, as an observer who came to an understandable conclusion that (1) McCain is not that much more liberal than his Republican rivals or the actual record of recent Republican presidents such as Gerald Ford, the two Bushes, and Ronald Reagan.

Ms. Obama
I have now seen her speak three times on television on C-Span. She is attractive, bright, and educated, an effective communicator (though verbose and prone to go on too long), and the most impressive of the potential first wives still in the race. But she seems right on the edge. As she goes on and on without a scripted text, she starts to tense up and gets a little angry and then makes the implicit case that a vote for her husband is a sort of redemption for the entire country.

Ms. Schwarzenegger
Maria Shriver spoke as well on behalf of Sen. Obama today, even as her husband endorsed Sen. McCain. Rather than try to convince strangers to vote for Obama, she should try to convince the governor to endorse him. But her endorsement was once again framed in religious tones—we find salvation by “going beyond the labels” and voting for a self-labeled black candidate?

GgggggggggggggggggggMen


Eli is the Man(ning) again. So satisfying after listening to two weeks of "The Giants have no chance ... it will be a blowout." And that was from the New York media. In all the years I have followed them ... THIS ... was the team's greatest victory and I go back to watching games since 1962.

Hat tip to UCONN Coach Randy Edsall ... he came on the show and called every game.

Here's what he said about this game on Thursday. "I think this one comes down to defense ... it's going to be all about the Giants defense stopping Brady."

Wallace to Clinton ... Why Do You Want To Surrender?

FNS Wallace calls her on this and I am glad but listen to how she slithers away. First, last September at the General Petraeus hearings.



Then this, this morning.


I am telling you ... there are some things I like about Mrs Clinton but on this she is just despicable. Once again she says the surge is working because of her. Now that takes a big damn lock box to make that claim, not once but twice.

As John O'Neill said to me one night at dinner. The Democrats had better hurry up and surrender before we win this thing.
