Operation Blue Gum for Barack
Obama visit gets the chainsaw

THE codename chosen for a secret policing operation to protect US President Barack Obama during his visit to Australia sounds innocuous enough.

But calling it Operation Blue Gum, after Australia's iconic native trees, almost caused an international embarrassment.

US consular officials were aghast when briefed by their counterparts in the NSW Police Force about the title, Blue Gum. In America, a "bluegum" is offensive slang for a lazy African-American who refuses to work.

And those in the small circle of officials who became aware of the operation's name were determined to abandon it, as quietly as possible, before Mr Obama heard about it. - [full]
I've never heard the term "blue gum."  Anyway, why not call it "Operation Canadian," after their North American sister country?  What?  Oh for chrissake  It's like punching a tar baby anymore, trying to be PC.  Call it "Operation MFCS Commie," and be done with it.

Five 3 Reasons Not To Despair

Boned Jello

Five Reasons Not to Despair
In the ongoing fight against the radical change Obamacare represents, there is still cause for hope. ► RICH LOWRY

Obamacare Isn’t Inevitable
Obamacare still can be turned back before it undermines life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. 

Hate Obamacare? You’re Probably Racist
Shame on the NYT for comparing Obamacare protesters with civil-rights era racists. 

Michigan’s Cheap Date
If Bart Stupak truly wanted to ensure that human dignity was respected in this legislation, he wouldn’t have surrendered. 

Their bet is that it can't be undone, and that over time, as I've been saying for years now, governmentalized health care not only changes the relationship of the citizen to the state but the very character of the people  MARK STEYN .

The Simpsons
I've commented before on the Simpsons seeming shift into raw politics, of the leftist political suasion (The Simpsons go to the dark side?; Lisa Simpson, Enemy of the Week). So far this season, there have been two episodes that buttress that observation.

"The Color Yellow" (Feb 21st) Lisa searches the family tree and discovers a lone heroine among the brigands, horse thieves, and snake oil salesman. Her great-great grandma Eliza left her slave owing husband, and ran away with a slave with whom she procreates.  The Simpsons celebrate the news that they are actually  African American.

If the story-line showed that the Simpsons suffered community bias as a result, it would be possible to exit having made an object lesson about discrimination.  Instead, what we have is another example of the racism that consumes Liberal politics.  "We were crap before, but now that we're octoroonish, let's celebrate." But *sotto voice* what of unfortunate tie to the 1998 episode, where Lisa discovers a family gene that makes the Simpsons unintelligent as they grow older?  Sigh. That's what happens when you tailor history to fit ideology, wot. Which brings us to last night's further example.

  "Stealing First Base"
      Principal Skinner announces that Mrs. Krabappel was called out of town and budget cuts dictate that, until she returns, the school's two fourth grade classes will merge. Bart reluctantly shares a desk with Nikki (guest voice Sarah Silverman) and develops a flirtatious rapport. Bart talks to Grampa about his new crush, and at Grampa's suggestion, gives Nikki a kiss. But when Nikki starts sending Bart mixed signals, he swears off women forever. Meanwhile, Lisa's classmates ostracize her for being an overachiever, and First Lady Michelle Obama (guest voice Angela Bassett), a self-professed nerd, comes to Lisa's defense.

The central story-line has Bart impulsively kissing a fourth grade girl.  Her parents are a feminist lawyer, and a gummint prosecutor.  They threaten a harassment lawsuit, and become the butt of some much deserved parody.  Then, out of sub-plot left field comes this gagger.  A flying Wookie

I, with sadness, rest my case.
