 Harry Reid in Trouble

Resewing torn fabric, stitch by stitch

Curmudgeonly & Skeptical

The latest Mason/Dixon poll shows Harry Reid trailing Republican challenger Sue Lowden by 10 points. Reid's disapproval number is at 49 percent. His approval is at 38 percent. Not very encouraging.

Reid campaign manager Brandon Hall tells the Vegas Review-Journal: "We've always said we will run an aggressive campaign that includes early television, and this is just the beginning." He must mean the beginning of the end.

The Perfect Squelch
 L. Brent Bozell to deliver ClimateGate news to nets via bicycle courier.

Curmudgeonly & Skeptical

For 14 straight days, the three broadcast networks have failed to report on the great and growing ClimateGate scandal on their weekday morning or evening news programs.  How to explain this?

Perhaps it is that ABC, NBC and CBS have not yet heard of the story, despite two weeks of non-stop reporting on and discussion of ClimateGate in a whole host of media outlets.

So as not to offend the networks’ pro-global warming sensibilities, MRC President Brent Bozell is looking to have the stories delivered by bicycle messenger. [Full]

Like I said ...

Official disclosure of
extraterrestrial life imminent

Have Obama's base been ordered to board the mother ship?
#B's comment (Official disclosure of extraterrestrial life is imminent.) set me on a new course.  First, the gist.  
The impending disclosure announcement follows upon the secret implementation of a year long openness policy on UFOs and extraterrestrial life. Over the period February 12-14, 2008, the United Nations held closed doors discussions where approximately 30 nations secretly agreed on a new openness policy on UFOs and extraterrestrial life in 2009.  ....

Obama’s September 24, 2009 chairing of the UN Security Council meeting on nuclear non-proliferation and disarmament, signaled his emerging leadership role in tackling major global issues such as nuclear weapons. The Nobel Peace Prize was an important step in giving global legitimacy to President Obama in making an extraterrestrial disclosure announcement...
The efficaciousness of the writer's news aside, it's pretty clear that he's an Obama-UN nut job.  I'll come back to that.

Last June, or thereabouts, a guest on Rollye James Show, prolly David Wilcock on the America After Dark circuit, insisted that this announcement was forthcoming within two weeks.  I didn't hold my breath, but not because I don't accept the possibility. I view the existence of alien life as a certainty, and quite probable that our government has known as much for decades.  There's no reason to argue about what will be made manifestly clear if the announcement isn't forthcoming, so let's stipulate  it will happen  What would it mean?  Some  thoughts (so we're not caught flat-footed).
  • Why would Obama reveal what presidents, possibly going back to Truman,  didn't?
One of the reasons for prior restraint may  have been the concern over how a  Christian nation would react to the news?  Hmmmm. Some theology might be under pressure, just as Galileo terrified the church with his "earth rotates around the sun," science.   Overall, it would be of little consequence, IMO.   But, is that how Obama would view it?  I don't think so.  He'd see it as an opportunity to fracture a formidable road block to his statist religion.  In other words, people wishing to deliver a crushing blow to Western culture would revel in the disclosure.
  • What proof would Obama offer?
Aside from having a saucer land on the White House lawn, what can he provide? The same proof as given for his Hawaiian birth.  His word for it.  Oh, there'll be lots of scientists, prolly refuges from global warming, who would swear it.  Bottom line, he doesn't need proof. 

The Nobel Peace Prize was an important step in giving global legitimacy to President Obama in making an extraterrestrial disclosure announcement...
  • How would he benefit?

Curmudgeonly & Skeptical



Some years ago I advanced a theory that just came back via a MoSup e-mail.  Does that mean I'm relevant?

The year is 1947

  Some of you will recall that on July 8, 1947, a little over 60 years ago, witnesses claim that an unidentified flying object (UFO) with five aliens aboard crashed onto a sheep and mule ranch just outside Roswell ,
New Mexico . This is a well known incident that many say has long been covered up by the U.S. Air Force and other federal agencies and organizations.

  However, what you may NOT know is that in the month of April 1948, nine months after that historic day, the following people were born:

  Albert A. Gore, Jr..
  Hillary Rodham
  John F. Kerry
  William J. Clinton
  Howard Dean
  Nancy Pelosi
  Dianne Feinstein
  Charles E.. Schumer
  Barbara Boxer

  See what happens when aliens breed with sheep and jackasses?   I certainly hope this bit of information clears up a lot of things for you. It did for me.

  No wonder they support the bill to help illegal aliens!

Obama Ecstasy - new version

Barack Obama Ecstasy Pills Hit Streets:
Approval Ratings High

 Can't we all just love one another (r u 18)?

Obama Ectasy
(AP Photo)
PALMVIEW, Texas (CBS/AP) President Barack Obama's approval rating may be hovering in the 50 percent range, but that doesn't mean America's Commander-in-Chief isn’t catching on with new constituents.

There is now a line of Ecstasy pills made in the image of the 44th president of the United States, according to Texas police who have snatched a batch off the streets.

Ecstasy is known for a sense of elation, diminished feelings of fear and anxiety, and ability to induce a sense of intimacy with others.

Perhaps a good Election Day strategy to get out the vote?

A stash of the brightly colored tablets was found Monday during a south Texas traffic stop.[cont]

Policies for staving off a new Great Depression
Currently, Rep. Ron Paul’s “Audit the Fed” bill, is making committee rounds in the House and Senate bil.  Although these bills are questionable in their intent, the Fed’s responses to the crisis have been extraordinary and will continue to have ripple effects for some time to come. [Cheryl Jones]

Stupid Conspiracies
Voters have every right to ask candidates for information if they so choose. I’ve pointed out that it was seemingly fair game during the 2008 election for many on the left to badger my doctor and lawyer for proof that Trig is in fact my child. Conspiracy-minded reporters and voters had a right to ask... which they have repeatedly. But at no point – not during the campaign, and not during recent interviews – have I asked the president to produce his birth certificate or suggested that he was not born in the United States. - Sarah Palin

What's uncontestable prima facie evidence of Obama's lawlessness called?

I actually agree with something Tiger Hawk agreed with about what Paul Krugman wrote this morning:

Harsanyi: A reason to be skeptical
You may suppose that those with a resilient faith in end-of-days global warming would be more distraught than anyone over these actions. You'd be wrong. In the wake of the scandal, we are told there is nothing to see. The administration, the United Nations, most of the left-wing punditry and political establishment have shrugged it off. What else can they do?
