The Real Monster

Is Obama too nice?
 Way Barf Alert

With problems for the president in Afghanistan, health care and unemployment, some critics on both the left and right are asking: Is the president essentially ‘too nice' to make the important decisions?
That is how David Kerley of ABC News opens his recent piece titled, "Is Obama ‘Too Nice' to Make Tough Decisions?"

Thwe self created man
You've got to love it when liberals use the words "some critics," or "critics say," to voice what they believe without substantiation. Please tell us Mr. Kerley, which critics on the right are asking whether the President is "too nice" to make important decisions?

If critics on the right are asking such a misguided question, then they, like Mr. Kerley do not know the real Barack Obama. And, inasmuch as ABC News failed to vet Candidate Obama we would not expect the organization to know much about Obama beyond the shiny narrative.

Just a few days before the 2008 presidential election, Tom Brokaw appeared on the Charlie Rose show. Here's a brief excerpt:

    Rose: I don't know what Barack Obama's worldview is.

    Brokaw: No, I don't either.

    Rose: And do we know anything about the people who are advising him?

    Brokaw: You know that's an interesting question. . . . I don't know what books he's read.

    Rose: What do we know about the heroes of Barack Obama?

    Brokaw: There's a lot about him we don't know.

Not to worry though. Our esteemed journalists knew that Obama was the perfect candidate. They knew he read a mean teleprompter. They knew he looked good and had a good looking family. They knew he had a nice looking smile. They knew he was black and was the one to make history.

He seemed like a really nice guy.

If they had done their homework, however, they would have known that Obama was a Chicago-machine politician who had used bare-knuckles tactics against his opponents. Do please continue - it's fun.

It's what happens

South Park Spoof

I see dead people ...

 Best of the Web mentions this South Park park episode today ...  (Billy May's clip above)
  Life Imitates 'South Park'

    * "The spirit of Michael Jackson plays with Ike, while the rest of the dead wait in purgatory."--episode description, "Dead Celebrities," aired Oct. 7
    * "Michael Jackson Talks to His Macaw From Beyond the Grave Says Sister La Toya--Exclusive"--headline, Mirror (London), Oct. 24
I happened to miss that episode, and South Park's deal with Viacom (Comedy Central)  is they can show full episodes on their own site the first week, but then must wait a month before showing it again.  That would be Nov. 7th.  However, these guys must have a different deal with Viacom, or just don't care, because you can watch it now.  You will have to allow pop-ups, and sit through 10 seconds or so of ads.  I LMAO.

Pinning Blame

Banking on Obama

I've listened to the third hour of Limbo's Friday (10-23) show several times.  Because it's all that's on my little Phillips iPod that I listen to when I'm shopping, driving, etc.  There was a stretch in that segment where Rush tasar'd the pay-czar , and ripped into Obama's socialist caterwauling.  It's  wonderful for it's passion, and capsule explanation for why 10-18 even  happened.  I distilled it down to 2 minutes.  If you like it, use it.  It's the Real King of France's Lend-Lease program.  You're welcome. (Let them drink the finest whiskey).

Minimalist Me


 I guess you noticed that I did a bit of  house cleaning last night.  It struck me that the hallway to my blog looked like an Italian Grotto, so relative minimalism  is the result.  It won't be long before I start adding chrome and hanging pink boas, but for now I feel clean.  If anyone wants to submit a banner idea, have at it. 

The UN - Again

Against the Wall MoFo's

 Is there a difference between an al- Qaeda or UN presence in the United States?  Yes there is.  The UN is the greater threat.

 In 2004 House democrats petitioned for the UN to monitor the coming election.  Jummy Carter joined the chorus, arguing it was necessary -- to forestall another stolen  presidency.  The request was bumped to Sec. State Colin Powell who obviously acceded,  because Bush asked Kofi Annan to send his blue helmets.  (I'm not making this up)

In retrospect, I'll guess that Bush was assured by brother, and Florida governor Jeb, that the delegation would not be allowed within 60 feet of a polling place, and figured to triangulate in yet another of his many such political miscalculations.  My expressed feeling at the time was that the UN delegation be set afire on first contact.  What an insult to US sovereignty!

Given this current government, how can I be gobsmacked by anything?  But I am no less outraged to learn that the United Nations Investigator Launches Probe Into US Housing Crisis. Neither do I think it the intention to interrogate Democrats on the House and Senate banking committees. Nope. It's another nose under the tent. Since it's not a given today that you'd get a medal for shooting bin Laden on sight, I guess that ...  you know.  Sigh.  Impeaching Obama will have to suffice.
