The Media's Love Affair Renewed

Now that CNN has officially put the Rev Wright issue behind us ... we can join the media in their renewed love affair with the Messiah. I have posted below links to four different stories, each disgustingly biased in their own way. The main stream media will once again be running cover for their love ... do not get in their way.

To set this up we have Andrea Mitchell reporting on the renewed Congressional love interest in Barry.

Next up, Tucker Carlson, via HotAir.

Now this from CNN's Jon Roberts, via Hotair

and finally this link to CNN footage of the Press fawning over the Messiah in jeans. Pay close attention to the squeals from the women on the press plane.

Obama accuses McCain of 'losing his bearings'

You've got to be kidding me. What a cheap shot. But not a surprise. But what Senator McCain says is true and has nothing to do with his age. Any terrorist organization is pulling for other side. And when I say the other side, I mean anyone but Senator McCain because Senator McCain is the only one who gets National Security and gets the fact that dealing with the terrorists is the key to that National Security.

'CSI' star Gary Dourdan charged with felony drug possession

Does anyone else find this ironic if you watch the show??? And when they say drug possession they're not talking some pot they found him with. He's been charged with possession of heroin, cocaine and ecstasy!!!

The Five Mistakes Clinton Made

While these are all valid points in the article, I think they missed the overall picture. She lied, oh sorry - "misremembered" or "misspoke" and got caught. Many times. And politics is a dirty game, but come on, we all know the Clinton's take that to a whole new level. Bill was at least likable. A prominent conservative once said to me he was so happy they never got in the same room with President Clinton because Bill just had this spell he could seem to cast over everyone he met. You would go in hating him and come out loving him, you just couldn't help it!!! Hillary DOES NOT have that. She easy to hate. I think Hillary beat Hillary. Her true colors came shining through and people didn't like what they saw. Read article here

Neither fish nor fowl: Platypus genome decoded

Look at these guys!!! I'm a big fan of the platypus, I can't believe we haven't figured it out before now.....but mystery no more!!!

PARIS (AFP) - Arguably the oddest beast in Nature's menagerie, the platypus looks as if were assembled from spare parts left over after the animal kingdom was otherwise complete.
Now scientists know why. According to a study released Wednesday, the egg-laying critter is a genetic potpourri -- part bird, part reptile and part lactating mammal. Continue reading here

A Diferent Kind Of Politican

We have heard so much about the Obama rallies. Overflowing crowds so vast that in each state the Obama campaign must secure an arena. Last night as I watched, yes even I marveled at his ability to fill these arenas. Then I get up this morning and see this and wonder ... why won't the MSM tell us the whole story? The making of a myth.

McCain and Judges

The folks at Powerline have a great analysis of McCain's speech on judicial nominations. Close to the heart of Republicans and core voters in the south and midwest, I agree with Paul. This will play well.

Somehow, by Senator Obama's standard, even Judge Roberts didn't measure up. And neither did Justice Samuel Alito. Apparently, nobody quite fits the bill except for an elite group of activist judges, lawyers, and law professors who think they know wisdom when they see it -- and they see it only in each other.

Obama's camp has already fired back with a condemnation of Justice Roberts again. My guess is that won't play well.

Big Night For The Messiah

Not sure how Hillary continues or why. Indiana close and NC an apparent blowout. But the talk on conservative blogs and on TV ... will bitter clinging supporters of Hillary join the Obama camp or has the party cracked up. If wishes were horses, as my grandmother would say. (Via Instapundit)

The percentage of Clinton voters who say they'd choose McCain over Obama in a general election is approaching 40% in Indiana. Put it another way: in North Carolina, less than HALF of folks who voted today for Hillary Clinton are ready to say today that they'd definitely vote for Obama in a general election.

If wishes were horses, as my grandmother would say. I'm not buying the crack up theory but you can if you want.

Where's The Recession?

Well get into this tomorrow but this should wet our whistle. From the London Times:

Whatever happened to the Great Depression? Not the real one from 70 years ago, the lost decade of unimagined misery and Steinbeckian angst, the worst period in the history of modern capitalism. I mean the replay we were promised this year. The one we were told was the inevitable counterpart to the greatest financial crisis since a couple of medieval Italians first sat down on a Florentine bench and invented the word “bank”

I have an Obama sound bite where he says the economy is in recession or worse. Oh brother. If I can I will get it up tonight.

More On Michelle

Well it took a few days but Michelle's dark and dreary world is finally getting some national attention ... You've heard the audio on my show now here's the same speech in NC ... Byron York at National Review:

The crowd begins to applaud; they think they’re hearing a happy, inspiring story. But that’s not where Mrs. Obama is going.

“And then that little girl started to break down in tears,” she continues. “She sobbed so hard. She was crying big, huge tears. And I had to think, why is this little girl crying so hard? And I thought, you know what’s going on? This little old girl gets it.”

“Yeah — ”

“This little ten-year-old girl knows what’s at stake.”

“That’s right — ”

“She knows that she’s already five steps behind — “

“Mmm-huh — ”

“She knows that her hopes for college are already dwindling — ”

“Yes — ”

“She knows that if she gets sick, maybe has an asthma attack, instead of going to a doctor and being treated, she’s going to be sitting in an emergency room for hours on end.”

“That’s right — ”

In short, Obama says, the little girl, just ten, knows that the bar has been moved far away from her, and she “feels that veil of impossibility, and it is suffocating her.”

“This little girl is in all of us,” Obama concludes.

“Mmm-huh — ”

It is indeed a dark and dreary world.

Yanks fan charged with murder in Sox fan death

This is INSANE!!! And this is why I tend to shy away from attending Sox/Yanks games. I have a cousin who's a hard core Yanks fan and he can laugh when I buy his baby on the way a Sox onsie. A Yanks fan is sits about 20 feet away from me at work and we can seem to enjoy some Sox/Yanks jousting in the morning (and his baby will also be in position of a Sox onsie soon too). Now alcohol was of course involved here. But alcohol's involved at my family functions believe me, and my cousin and I don't throw down.

I can't quite put my finger on how or why this happens. I generally think that people who accelerate to this point are not true fans of baseball. I admit it, I hate the Yanks. I'm a life long Sox fan. But I can also admit that Derek Jeter's a great baseball player. You can read the article on this case here. What you'll find is that a fine 29 y/o man is dead for no good reason at all and we all lost.

Showing The Insurgency Who's The Boss

Michael Yon has a new column in the Daily News. A nice summary over at National Review.

The militias, unlike Al Qaeda, are not insane; we can negotiate with them. But we and the Iraqi government can only capitalize on the shifting sentiments of the Shia neighborhoods if we first demonstrate that we and the government - not the gangs - control the streets.

That means, for the next few months, expect more blood, casualties and grim images of war. This may lead to a shift in the political debate inside the United States and more calls for rapid withdrawal. But on the ground in Iraq, it's a sign of progress.

Democrats and the Killing Fields

An opinion piece from the Wall Street Journal......a very good perspective's the first paragraph.........

Most people have never heard of Operation Frequent Wind, which ended on April 30, 1975, 33 years ago. But every American has seen pictures of it: the Marine helicopters evacuating the last U.S. personnel from the embassy in Saigon, hours before communist tanks rolled into the city. Thousands of desperate Vietnamese gathered at the embassy gate and begged to be taken with them. Others committed suicide. Continue reading

Oprah and Wright

Oprah left Wright's church early on, for the very reason most people expected. Newsweek reports it was Wright's sermons. But while she was free to leave ... Obama apparently was not:

"Early on, he was in search of his identity as an African-American and, more importantly, as an African-American man. Reverend Wright and other male members of the church were instrumental in helping him understand the black experience in America. Winfrey wasn't going for that. She's secure in her blackness, so that didn't have a hold on her.''

Dean to Fox News: Hey, You are biased.

Chris Wallace asks Howard Dean at the end of the interview if it was a mistake to boycott Fox News. Dean's response ... no ... you are biased.

Dean:Republicans Are Race Baiting

Wait, I thought the Democrats started this. I thought Bill Clinton played the race card in South Carolina. I thought Rev Wright hated rich white people and he's Barack Obama's uncle. How did Howard Dean go from there to the Republicans as race baiters? Careful of that glass house Governor.

Dean should be embarrassed. He should be but he isn't. Speaks volumes about the new improved Democratic party.

Howard Dean: Misleading on Misleading ad

Howard Dean made an appearance on Fox News Sunday and Chris Wallace hit him early and often (memo to Tim Russert). Wallace goes after him right away on a DNC ad that takes McCain out of context (according to WaPo and Fact Check).

First the Dem attack ad, then the Chris Wallace charge. Dean's response? Who cares if its not accurate.

Would you like a pillow Senator?

I've been through the first 30 minutes of MTP and I have to say the only thing missing was a pillow for the Messiah. Russert did ask him what took him so long to disown Wright, but Obama gave a pat answer and Russert didn't press. The toughest question was why he didn't disown him in 2007, but Obama faked to the left and Tim let him drive to the hoop.

Here are some examples of the questions the Messiah had to face in the first 30 minutes. Ughh.

Fox News Sunday is next. Back in a bit.

The New York Times: Operation Chaos Denier

The NYT: Working hard to make sure you know its not Rush Limbaugh ... it's bitter Republicans.

"Mr. Nichols said he had no health insurance and lived on a block where three houses were in foreclosure. “McCain doesn’t have an economic plan,” he said “We’re in a recession and need relief now ... ""

A whiny Republican? Hey, if a conservative can get elected as Mayor of London. But wait ... The NYT may have slipped up. Two lines in the article suggest yes, it is Rush.

"In Wisconsin’s Feb. 19 contest, for example, Mr. Obama got about three-quarters of the votes cast by those identifying themselves as Republicans. (Hmmm, that's before Operation Chaos) In Texas’ March 4 primary, though, he and Mrs. Clinton split the Republican vote almost evenly, while in Mississippi on March 11, she outpolled him among Republicans by a three-to-one margin."
(Hmmm, that's after Operation Chaos began)"

Wait there's more.

“We’re getting a lot of inquiries from Republicans asking how do you do it, how do you cross over,” Dan Parker, the Democratic Party state chairman, said in an interview here. “It’s been our No. 1 request for the past two months.” ( Why that's exactly when Operation Chaos began .... hmmmm.)

This is too funny ... I don't know if it's Rush ... but if it isn't, the left leaning media is sure paying a lot of attention to it for nothing.

When Headlines ... Mislead?

I've gone though this story 3 times and there's only one small reference to global warming among a list of about a half a dozen reasons for shark attacks. But the reporter or the editor knows most folk will just read the headline or ... the headline will drive folks to the story. Stupid.

"The one thing that's affecting shark attacks more than anything else is human activity,' said Dr George Burgess of Florida University, a shark expert who maintains the database. 'As the population continues to rise, so does the number of people in the water for recreation. And as long as we have an increase in human hours in the water, we will have an increase in shark bites ... another contributory factor to the location of shark attacks could be global warming and rising sea temperatures."
