Sid Blumenthal caught driving with a snootful

Hillary Clinton's favorite flying monkey, Sid Blumenthal, is in big trouble in New Hampshire:
Sgt. Mike Masella, one of the arresting officers, said the movements of a Buick caught his eye. “I observed all his erratic driving,” Masella said. “When I first noticed him it was at an intersection. He abruptly stopped. That caught my eye … He was drifting in his lane.” Masella followed the car, a rental, for a mile and a half, and clocked its speed at 70mph in a 30mph zone--more than twice the legal limit. Masella pulled the car over at 12:30 a.m. Monday morning. Blumenthal told the officer he was returning to his hotel from a restaurant in Manchester. After declining to take a Breathalyzer, Masella says, Blumenthal failed a field sobriety test. Blumenthal was handcuffed, booked, had his fingerprints taken and was held for four hours--standard operating procedure in such arrests in New Hampshire--before posting bail and being released. (He will be arraigned later this month.) Because the car was moving at excessive speeds, Blumenthal was given the more serious charge of “aggravated” DWI--which carries a mandatory sentence of at least three days behind bars.
I'm sure the big house would be a nice experience for ole Sid - he could blame it all the Vast Right Wing Conspiracy. But here's the rich part:
A longtime confidante and adviser to the Clintons, he has zealously defended them through any number of scandal investigations. Along the way, Blumenthal has shown an affinity for the sharp counterattack. When a group of Arkansas state troopers in the early 1990s began leveling charges that Bill Clinton had strayed in his marriage, Blumenthal shot back--penning an article in The New Yorker accusing the troopers of a litany of their own transgressions, including attempted fraud, marital infidelity and drunken driving.
Gosh, sounds just like the Clintons and Sid! Anyhow, one of those Arkansas state troopers was Larry Patterson who had a variety of things to say about the Clintons (I always liked Bubba's line that Ted Kennedy "couldn't get a whore across a bridge") including some that are of particular interest these days:
According to Clinton's bodyguard, Arkansas State Trooper Larry Patterson, Clinton frequently used the "N" word, using it to describe Reverend Jesse Jackson, as well as a local black civil rights leader. Said Patterson, "When [Bill Clinton] had black political leaders in the state and he disagreed with them, he would frequently use the 'N' word."
I bet there are a lot of "N" words flying around Clinton HQ these days.

I guess you won't see me in Barack Obama's church on Sunday

Burt Prelutsky notes that the media clowns love to spend a lot of time asking Republicans about their religious beliefs, but give Democrats a pass other than publicizing the obligatory publicity shots. He partially remedies this omission with a look at Obama’s Creepy, Race-Obsessed Church:

For over 20 years, Sen, Obama has been a faithful member of Chicago’s Trinity United Church of Christ. The other day, I paid a visit to Trinity’s website. There I read that the vision statement of the TUCC is based upon something called the systematized liberation theology that began in 1969 with the publication of Dr. James Cone’s book, “Black Power and Black Theology.” Dr. Cone believes that black Christians should not follow the “White Church,” as it had failed to support them in their struggle for equal rights in America. I suspect that most white Christians would disagree.

Trinity United boasts that it is a congregation “Unashamedly Black and Unapologetically Christian.” What’s more, “it is a congregation with a non-negotiable commitment to Africa. We are an African people, and remain true to our native land, the mother continent, the cradle of civilization.”

Its pastor, Reverend Jeremiah A. Wright, Jr., has referred to “white arrogance” and “the United States of Whiter America.” To my ears, that sounds unashamedly black, but I’m not so sure about the unapologetically Christian.

Furthermore, Rev. Wright’s church publishes a magazine, The Trumpet. Not too surprisingly, all things considered, the recipient of the 2007 Lifetime Achievement Trumpeter Award for Social Justice was none other than Louis Farrakhan, the fellow who plays the race card even better than he plays his violin.

Hey, maybe the media buffoons should ask ole Barack about UFOs too!
I have no idea how a member of a black church that apparently feels it owes greater allegiance to Africa than to America and that pays homage to a bigot like Farrakhan, has the gall to present himself as the one candidate who can bring us all together.

Easy, it's a con game.

Mike Huckabee: If his lips are moving, he's lying

Lying Mike HuckabeeI've always appreciated Ronald Reagan's dictum that Thou shalt not speak ill of any fellow Republican, but I lack The Gipper's forbearance when it comes to the more extreme of the Republicans in Name Only and there is no more outlandish RINO than Lying Mike Huckabee. This unprincipled huckster is now spinning tall tales like crazy trying to cover his tracks in the Republican presidential primaries, but no amount of lies can obscure his record.


Illegal aliens:


  • Huck handles the party bucks -"In 2000, Huckabee insisted on controlling the state party's separate Victory Committee, but the committee's finances were so poorly handled that a Federal Election Commission investigation resulted in the largest fine ever handed down by the FEC to a state party."

Party Loyalty:

Foreign policy:

  • This has to be the canonical Huckabee train wreck. When he's not saying that the USA should apologize for the death of Benazir Bhutto or wanting to sing Kumbaya with the Iranian whackos, he is accusing President Bush having a bunker mentality. The best part is his claim that his foreign policy advisers include goofy NY Times columnist Thomas Friedman (Huckabee claims to have read his latest book) and better choices Richard Allen, and John Bolton. The only problem is that Allen and Bolton deny ever talking with him. Then there was purported adviser Frank Gaffney with whom Huckabee had actually spoken once. Check out his assessment of the Huckster which makes him sound like a not-too-bright kid..

Get off the stage Mike, you're stinking out the joint. Or better yet, see if Jimmy Carter needs an assistant down at his museum.

Hillary surrogate accuses Obama of "shuck and jive"

Paging Donna Brazile! Andrew Cuomo, the Democrat Attorney General of New York and fervent Hillary Clinton supporter suggests that Barack Obama is shucking and jiving his way to the nomination right after Her Heinous got finished suggesting that Obama needed to do some more "spade work." Aside from the amusement factor, there's another bright side:

This is an entirely unexpected bonus to the Obama candidacy: Suddenly, with the Democrats needing to not-so-subtly play the race card against a black candidate, a whole plethora of formerly-forbidden phrases and "racial code words" becomes, abracadabra, entirely suitable for civil discourse and not indicative of racism at all.

This is just wonderful news! I know I've got a whole list of terms I'm hoping the DNC and MSM will jointly now bless as acceptable. Top of that list: octaroon.

Nah, it will never happen. So when do the compulsory sensitivity training classes for the Hillary campaign start?

Kerry dumps Edwards for Obama

Kerry dumps Edwards for Obama

Despite John Kerry and John Edwards once being "closer than close", ole Lurch is going to take time out from his busy schedule as Teresa Heinz's boy toy and endorse Barack Obama today. I guess he wanted to get his application in early for ambassador to France. On the other hand, Hillary Clinton is probably breathing a sigh of relief and hoping that Lurch will campaign with Hussein. Still, they always say that payback is a bitch, especially when Hillary is involved:

Hillary Clinton announces John Kerry payback

Hillary Clinton, The Comeback Crone

Hillary Clinton the comeback crone
The media foolishness over the presidential primaries continues unabated with the story of Hillary's "miraculous comeback" in New Hampshire being the latest jape. The so-called comeback is based on media polls that had her substantially behind after leading for weeks and were proved wrong on election day. There's only a story there if the pollsters are perceived to have some faint idea of what is actually going on and it is quite evident that they don't. I am surprised though that the usual Donk wingnuts aren't claiming a Karl Rove fraud conspiracy as a result.

Moreover, the net result was that Obama and Hillary tied with 9 elected New Hampshire delegates each and since Obama snagged 3 NH super-delegates and Hillary only 2, ole Hussein actually won the state. Don't expect anyone to pay attention to the messy details though - it's a comeback because the media says it is.

Today's Hoot: The many voices of Hillary Clinton

From Michelle Malkin:

Blecchhh. Here’s the video clip of her self-congratulatory, voice-discovering moment.

Which gives me a good opportunity to remind you of the many voices of Hillary Rodham Clinton. Like her fake Selma voice. And her Al Sharpton’s best friend voice. And her Bug Off, Code Pink! voice. And her chumming it up with Peter Paul voice. And her hearty, cackling voice. Oh, and her botched, open-borders voice.

She’s her own self-generating cacophony. What other voices are in there?
How about the "household object throwing at her husband" screech or the "blue dress banshee" wail?

New PC rules - you can't criticize Obama because he is black

Long time Democrat operative and professional black person Donna Brazile is all huffy that Bubba Clinton had the temerity to notice that Barack Obama's political credentials have the substance of a fairy tale. We won't discuss Hillary's credentials, but catch the part when Brazile sputters:
Blitzer: But tell me why, as an African-American, Donna, you feel that the president's comments weren't appropriate.

Brazile: First of all, if Bill Bennett [also on the show] had said some of the things that Bill Clinton is saying about Barack Obama, I would have called Bill Bennett out of his name and said that Bill Bennett should shut his mouth because he is not speaking in the right tone.
Woohoo, maybe she would have gone upside his head too (and Donna packs a lot of weight behind her punch). But Bubba, well she's just "depressed" that he doesn't appreciate Hussein's sterling qualities:
I think his tone, I think calling Barack Obama a kid, he is a United States senator. He's experienced. The people of Illinois elected him, and regardless of what kind of items are on his résumé, this is a man who has worked all his life. He's proven; he's been a college professor.
Bwahaha. She forgot to mention that Barack is good at structuring complex real estate deals and getting his wife odd but well paying jobs. Of course the best part is that Donna apparently isn't kidding. I guess she's going to have a tough year unless Barack folds his tent.

I thought he looked kind of familiar

Princess Obama:
Watching the cresting of the Obama tidal wave, it seems that the US is having its Princess Diana moment. Hillary Clinton, turning on the tears but only succeeding once again in thus underscoring her own cynical calculation, wails fruitlessly that Obama is all warm fuzzy feeling but no substance.

‘Wait a minute,’ she said, ‘what is the substance here? What, as famously was said years ago, where's the beef? You know, where is the reality?’

Welcome to Planet Diana. It was only with the death of the People’s Princess that the extent of Britain’s transformation from a country of reason, intelligence, stoicism, self-restraint and responsibility into a land of credulousness, emotional incontinence, sentimentality, irresponsibility and self-obsession became shatteringly apparent. Princess Diana was an icon of the new Britain because she embodied precisely those latter characteristics.

It became clear that politicians could score remarkable short-term success if they too got in touch with their inner trauma and felt everyone else’s pain. Bill Clinton (hideous irony for Hillary) was the first to realise this and made it his political signature. Tony Blair, whose lip periodically quivered with precision timing, had it in spades. David Cameron has it; so too does Obama.

The effect is electric, but short-lived. That is because Dianafication is essentially empty, amoral, untruthful and manipulative; eventually voters see through it and realise they have been played for suckers. But while it lasts -- and it creates presidents and prime ministers -- reason doesn’t get a look in. Warm fuzzy feelings win hands down because they anaesthetise reality and blank out altogether those difficult issues which require difficult decisions. Obama appears to be on the wrong side of just about every important issue going; indeed, were he to be elected president he would be a danger to the free world. But hey – the guy makes people feel good about themselves; he stands for hope, love, reconciliation, youthfulness and fairies at the bottom of the garden.

OMG, I hope we're not in for another Jimmy Carter moment. We're still cleaning up the mess he left behind. On the other hand, ole Barack Husein probably looks swell in a fancy ball gown.

Save your carbon credit cash - Global Cooling on the way

Changes in the Sun’s Surface to Bring Next Climate Change (via C&S):

January 2, 2008

Today, the Space and Science Research Center, (SSRC) in Orlando, Florida announces that it has confirmed the recent web announcement of NASA solar physicists that there are substantial changes occurring in the sun’s surface. The SSRC has further researched these changes and has concluded they will bring about the next climate change to one of a long lasting cold era.

Today, Director of the SSRC, John Casey has reaffirmed earlier research he led that independently discovered the sun’s changes are the result of a family of cycles that bring about climate shifts from cold climate to warm and back again.

“We today confirm the recent announcement by NASA that there are historic and important changes taking place on the sun’s surface. This will have only one outcome - a new climate change is coming that will bring an extended period of deep cold to the planet. This is not however a unique event for the planet although it is critically important news to this and the next generations. It is but the normal sequence of alternating climate changes that has been going on for thousands of years. Further according to our research, this series of solar cycles are so predictable that they can be used to roughly forecast the next series of climate changes many decades in advance. I have verified the accuracy of these cycles’ behavior over the last 1,100 years relative to temperatures on Earth, to well over 90%.”
When asked about what this will mean to the average person on the street, Casey was firm. “The last time this particular cycle regenerated was over 200 years ago. I call it the “Bi-Centennial Cycle” solar cycle. It took place between 1793 and 1830, the so-called Dalton Minimum, a period of extreme cold that resulted in what historian John D. Post called the ‘last great subsistence crisis.’ With that cold came massive crops losses, food riots, famine and disease. I believe this next climate change will be much stronger and has the potential to once more cause widespread crop losses globally with the resultant ill effects. The key difference for this next Bi-Centennial Cycle’s impact versus the last is that we will have over 8 billion mouths to feed in the next coldest years where as we had only 1 billion the last time. Among other effects like social and economic disruption, we are facing the real prospect of the ‘perfect storm of global food shortages’ in the next climate change. In answer to the question, everyone on the street will be affected.”
Hmm, this can work for the lefties too - someone call Barbara Boxer and the UN and get them working on a new super-duper plan. As for Al Gore, there's no need for him suffer an interruption in his cash flow. He can just ditch the carbon credits and start raising mink.
