The "VRWC" is BACK!

Obama Unhinged
"I think early on, a decision was made by the Republican leadership that said, 'Look, let's not give him a victory, maybe we can have a replay of 1993, '94, when Clinton came in, he failed on health care and then we won in the mid-term elections and we got the majority. And I think there are some folks who are taking a page out that playbook," the president said. - WaTimes

Tapping fingers here boss ...

I recall a large number of people arguing a few years ago that the unmasking of Valerie Plame amounted to treason.  I wonder if the same people making that argument about the leak of her identity as a CIA analyst (by Colin Powell aide Richard Armitage to the late Robert Novak) will remain consistent in this case.  After all, here we have Americans exposing field agents at their homes, and not to a journalist — but to the enemy.  If Plame’s exposure was treason, then this should be a hanging offense, no?

Hip News

Red Eye

After several attempts (I forget) Fox News  may finally have a show that can attract the Daily Show viewer, even though it's format is closer to Bill Maher's. The late night (3AM) show Red Eye, hosted by Greg Gutfeld (he did the MSNBC clip you saw earlier) takes on the day's news, political and other without a hint of smarminess.  I think Gutfeld could take John Stewart in a knife fight too.  I'll link it below later so you can watch it at a decent hour. 

This Ann Coulter quote didn't come from the above segment,  but from her column this week.  It broke new ground for me.  Maybe you too.
You could fix 90 percent of the problems with health insurance by ending the federal law allowing states to ban health insurance sales across state lines. But when John McCain called for ending the ban during the 2008 presidential campaign, he was attacked by Joe Biden -- another illustration of the ironclad Ann Coulter rule that the worst Republicans are still better than allegedly "conservative" Democrats.
