CBS-No Self-esteem Remaining

Not Pretending Anymore


Aside: (RCP)
CBS News:  "I'm noticing that there are not a lot of minorities here today, why do you think that is?"

Black woman at Glenn Beck rally: "They're probably over there with Al Sharpton."



Quick - I need some lead boots

I found this at the end of  EPA Denies Petition Calling for Lead Ammunition Ban. Just in case you still foolishly thought that the muck-a-mucks running the various professional bird & tree lover fundations had a lick of sense; or that we have a chance of talking some into them.
The EPA is considering banning lead weights used to balance automobile tires:

Thank the Sierra Club who unbelievably puts this in their press release: (PDF)

“1.6 million pounds of lead from wheel weights is left falling off of cars each year where anyone can find and possibly ingest it,” said Jeff Gearhart, Research Director for the Ecology Center.

Another Blow Job

CAT FIGHT: Union pussy clawed by Sarah Palin

Woman of the Year
Editorial of The New York Sun | August 27, 2010

In newspaper terms, the reason this story is getting so much attention is that it’s a man bites dog story. It’s just not often that someone with a union card takes on the head of Big Labor, challenging head-on the idea that liberal economic policies are good for the working man. Nor was the Battle of Anchorage a chance encounter. Mrs. Palin signaled her intention to mark the union point the very moment she burst onto the national stage .... 

Richard Trumka

Alternate title, "CAT FIGHT: Union pussy clawed by Sarah Palin. 

The thing is, and it's not just Trumka -  it's all the autobamatons,  he's preaching only to Palin haters; there' nothing at all new or compelling about his message.   Take the "she called them death panels" card.   Puh-leeze.  Sarah Palin was spot-on when she brought it up, and each day seems to bring a new Here Come The Death Panels confirmation.  But it gets worse for these Obamaslugs.

Suppose you're the typical politically disengaged American mom, or grand-mom.  A health threat you thought was covered, because it always was, isn't.   The phrase death panel has relevance now. When the next Obamamite tars Palin for bringing it up, mom doesn't just see Sarah as a political seer; she sees the Democrat Party as a threat to her family.  This issue has the potential of becoming  "Republican mine owners cracked daddy's head during the strike" legacy.  Democrats will never get her, or her family back.  Sarah wins.We win.

That ain't no steer, it's Beelzebub

EPA Surrenders to NRA on Gun Control Issue

In a swift and unexpected decision, the Environmental Protection Agency
today rejected a petition from environmental groups to ban the use of lead in bullets and shotgun shells, claiming it doesn't have jurisdiction to weigh on the controversial Second Amendment issue. The decision came just hours after the Drudge Report posted stories from Washington Whispers and the Weekly Standard about how gun groups were fighting the lead bullet ban.

The EPA had planned to solicit public responses to the petition for two months, but this afternoon issued a statement rejecting a 100-page request from the Center for Biological Diversity, the American Bird Conservancy, and three other groups for a ban on lead bullets, shot, and fishing sinkers. The agency is still considering what to do about sinkers.

The post that took 14 hours-don't ask

T hey (GOP) have spent way too much money. They have wasted money picking fights in primaries rather than saving it for the general election. And of course they have paid for the care, feeding, preening and pampering of Michael Steele.

I've been saying exactly the same things for weeks that Wilson said  (minus his point about "modeling," which hadn't occurred to me). I've always added one more element Wilson doesn't touch on: The thoroughly corrupt voting section of the thoroughly corrupt Obama-Holder Justice Department. I think Republican candidates will need to outperform Democrats among real, live voters by at least half a percentage point, and probably three-fourths of a point, in every single race in the country if they want to actually be allowed to take their seats. Otherwise, the dead voters, pets registered as voters, and phantom voters (such as those who figure out who hasn't voted yet and pretend to be those people, especially for military stationed abroad whose votes haven't been ensured) will throw close races to the Dems. -
Quin Hillyer
 A few days ago I did a side-by-side comparison of rosy, and not that rosy outlooks for the upcoming reckoning. Here, The American Spectator's Hillyer sides with Reid Wilson's "Why Democrats Will Keep The House."  Interesting stuff, but I ain't buying it.  I think both Hillyer and Wilson are too much the technicians, and too little the street whisperers.  This isn't 1992; it's 1980.   I can feel it; and so can you.
