Obama is a Moslim ditty doo dah ditty
Obama is a Moslim sing
A popular morning drive radio talk show on WMAL in DC, aired today a special song entitled "Obama is a Muslim."  The song was inspired by a new poll finding an increasing number of Americans convinced that President Obama is a Muslim, and, I guess, a need to get under his beleaguered skin.

M iller even has the right look: With a long, lean face, and stubble closer to 10 o'clock than 5, he could almost pass for Chuck Norris.

Unfortunately for him, not even Chuck Norris in his most bad-ass role—which is, of course, Chuck Norris in real life—could rescue the Miller campaign. Always a long shot, Miller lags behind Murkowski, the heir to one of Alaska's political dynasties, by double digits. Alexandra Gutierrez, a SLATE political columnist on Monday.

Another WHOOPS! moment.

I read a number of stories last week (like this AP gloat ), that had a  Palin-Power-Interruptus theme, very much like Gutierrez did Monday at SLATE.

  On Tuesday, in her home state, Sarah Palin's favorite will probably get trounced. Joe Miller is widely expected to lose by a large margin to incumbent Sen. Lisa Murkowski in the Republican primary—an embarrassing defeat for the former governor, who has endorsed Miller, but also to Miller's other major backer, the Tea Party Express.

And Palin's endorsement hasn't helped, Moore adds. According to a Dittman Research poll conducted in April, 52 percent of Alaskans hold a negative opinion of Palin. "When someone with those kinds of numbers endorses someone for public office, believe me, the effect is on the whole negative," says Moore.
Miller won the election, pending the count of 8,000 absentee ballots.  Here's the WaPost this morning.

Sarah Palin: Just when it looked like her influence in Republican primary fights was fading, Palin came back with a vengeance last night -- as all five of her endorsed candidates appeared headed to victories including Alaska attorney Joe Miller who led Alaska Sen. Lisa Murkowski with 98 percent of precincts reporting. Both Murkowski and Miller blamed/credited Palin with the result, which is rightly seen as the biggest upset of the 2010 cycle to date. The message? In Republican primaries -- particularly small turnout affairs -- the energy and enthusiasm that Palin can help create is invaluable.
John McCormack has more detail, "Who is Joe Miller?

Is that what it looks like?

This Election's Winning Message
Ben Quayle Wins
Dems going with "Bush's Failed Policies"

Quayle's winning message: Barack Obama is the worst president in history.

Ben Quayle's campaign assertion that "Barack Obama is the worst president in history," was a winner.  He beat 9 other GOP contestants for the AZ 3rd Cong. District  nomination yesterday.  Ben's dad, former VP Dan Quayle, was the prototype for the template Democrats use to smash rising conservatives they fear, most recently applied to Sarah Palin. Good on you Ben. Just don't go wobbly on us.

Cheese eating surrender presidents

Dear Taliban

W e know the president was talking to several audiences at the same time when he made his comments on July 2011,” Gen. James Conway  told reporters on Tuesday. “In some ways, we think right now it’s probably giving our enemy sustenance….In fact, we’ve intercepted communications that say, ‘Hey, you know, we only have to hold out for so long.’ Gen. James Conway
Conway's  criticism  of Obama for announcing a date certain withdrawal of US forces  from Afghanistan is remarkable, almost MacArthur-esque. Imam Obama famously views any criticism as lèse majesté, and this was a (well deserved) public rebuke. Can you feel Obama's seethe?

 The "debate" about pre-announcing the date you'll surrender has been going on since Vietnam.  How does one defend  this self defeating maneuver ?   The answer is, one cannot.  It's not that Democrats are unable to grasp the implications of the pre-surrender gambit. They may not care about American battlefield losses, but what if the concept was applied to  something they do stand up and salute - tax collection?

Dear Person:

We are closing our file on you on September 11, 2010.  If you have not paid your delinquent taxes by that date, we're screwed.  Please hurry.


My case in a nutshell.  Whoever famously proposed  [ahem] that "The United States will never win another war as long as Democrats  hold office," was spot-on.
