Al Gore Still Hangin' Around

How Climate Sanity Has Been Gored

My new book, Climate of Corruption: Politics and Power Behind the Global Warming Hoax, is dedicated to Al Gore, whose invention of the Internet made it possible–and whose invention of facts made it necessary. Beginning with the aggressively hyped 1988 U.S. Senate hearings he organized, no one has done more to melt down complacent minds with stoked-up claims of fossil-fueled climate peril.

Al Gore has been busy on both battle fronts, and has made a lot of money in the process. - Good Read

Angry? Make Big Bucks. Inquire Within.

Tonight's Critical Thinking Exercise

  Allegations are being made, accusing conservative talk radio show hosts, including Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, and Glenn Beck, of using paid actors to portray angry callers into their nationally syndicated programs.
Because there's just not enough angry people wantin' ta make phone calls and vent.

Santorum: Why Doesn't Fox
Suspend Palin, Huckabee?


Rick Santorum asks an almost good question here, but for the wrong reasons. 

Former U.S. Sen. Rick Santorum, a likely candidate for the Republican presidential nomination, understands why he and likely fellow presidential contender Newt Gingrich were suspended as commentators for Fox News. But he doesn’t understand why potential presidential candidates Sarah Palin and Mike Huckabee weren’t suspended, too, The Hill reports.
  1. Starting with Santorum: He's running for whatI have not forgotten that Santorum acted on behalf of President Bush in getting Sphincter reelected, when we could have had Sen. Pat Toomey.
  2. And Newt: Newt's   running for what?
  3. And Huckabee: I don't like Huckabee because he's a "program" candidate. That is, he fingers the political winds, and he gets stuff wrong.  His latest "birther moment" is a good example.  Just about everything he said was factually wrong, which allowed equally ignorant Obama apologists, like here,  to spew away, unabated. Here Mike, read this and get it right next time.
  4. And Sarah : Her strength is I think diluted by scheduled appearances on FOX. Making sane, timely observations via Facebook and Twitter allow3ed her to change the political landscape last year.  Sarah Palin's Alaska series was a tour de force.  As things stand Sarah Palin is a kingmaker with a following much larger, and more diverse than either party wants to acknowledge.  Still, who needs to be king when you have the king's ear?  Besides, Chris Christie is unbeatable as things stand.
Yes, I'm trurned off anymore by old talking heads whose sentences I can finish before the question is asked.  Still, I love FOX NEWS.  Who else could prompt fumbling New York Times executive editor Bill Keller to say:
"I think if you're a regular viewer of Fox News, you're among the most cynical people on planet Earth," Keller snarled. "I cannot think of a more cynical slogan than 'Fair and Balanced' "

Unless it's "All the news fit to print"

Why America Will Stay on Top

Eminent historian Paul Johnson on Sarah Palin,
the tea party, and 'baddies' from Napoleon to Gadhafi.

Subway Evolution

Okay, we're having tough times. but they're of our own making.  Johnson, at age 80, is perhaps the most eminent living British historian.  He sees strengths that we perhaps overlook, but that doesn't mean they've evaporated.

  "Of course I worry about America," he says. "The whole world depends on America ultimately, particularly Britain. And also, I love America—a marvelous country. But in a sense I don't worry about America because I think America has such huge strengths—particularly its freedom of thought and expression—that it's going to survive as a top nation for the foreseeable future. And therefore take care of the world.
The former governor of Alaska, he says, "is in the good tradition of America, which this awful political correctness business goes against." Plus: "She's got courage. That's very important in politics. You can have all the right ideas and the ability to express them. But if you haven't got guts, if you haven't got courage the way Margaret Thatcher had courage—and [Ronald] Reagan, come to think of it. Your last president had courage too—if you haven't got courage, all the other virtues are no good at all. It's the central virtue."

Let's recapture that old American spirit - "CAN DO," and "KILL A COMMIE FOR CHRIST!"

Because they've very tardily concluded that under his stewardship the United States is verging on Third World status? 


They're pissed because he hasn't used his mandate to impose more of Hollywood's leftist agenda on us.

  Streisand said she was disappointed in him for not having "used his executive privilege ... to get rid of 'don't ask, don't tell,'" the policy barring openly gay Americans from military service. [signed into law a week later].

Ex-hubby Elliot Gould once reportedly quipped that Babs was surprised to discover that Mount Rushmore wasn't a natural rock formation.  Matt Damon is making Howard Zinn's fanciful  "A People's History of the United States” into a movie.
