The glorious 4th of July

God, please bless the USA and save its citizens from those who would sell the birthright that the Founding Fathers struggled so hard to win for the favor of foreign despots and the vaporous nostrums of alien ideologies.

Harry Reid does Chicken Little

Check out Harry Reid's entry for the Global Warming "Sky is Falling" contest:

Of course, ole crooked Harry and his larcenous progeny aren't ecoweenies when it comes to land development deals.

Hillary supporters are going to get crankier

Unconvinced Hillary supporters made their displeasure with the Obamessiah clear at the goofy Obama-Hillary unity fest in Unity, NH (how cheesy can you get?) and what's more they have taken their quest to the Internet - see Just Say No Deal and my faves at Hillaryis44. In that regard they are accusing Obama supporters of getting Google to flag their comrades' Blogger blogs as spam.

Hmm, I guess they aren't going to be pleased when they see the new lawn jockey that the Obamas just installed at their Chicago mansion:

I think it a rather fetching likeness myself. Maybe Barack will tell us where to buy one?

I'm a bitter gun owner and I vote

As is traditional in recent national election years, it's time for the Democrats to start lying to the American people who would be horrified to know what they are up to when the citizens aren't watching. As Ann Coulter observed,
It's going to take a lot of "framing" for Democrats to recast Obama's explanation to San Francisco cafe society that gun ownership and a belief in God are the byproducts of a psychological disorder brought on by economic hardship.

It is an article of faith with the Democrats that they must fool Americans by simulating agreement with normal people. The winner of the Democratic primary is always the candidate who does the best impersonation of an American.
While marginally better than Her Thighness, Barack Obama really hasn't done too well in the impersonation department despite his "speechifying skills" (in the presence of a teleprompter, at least), but it is early days yet. As evidence that he is going to give it the old Harvard lawyer try, check out his newly revised stand on 2nd Amendment rights where all of a sudden Barack is all for folks owning handguns for protecting themselves and their families after opposing it for years. Next thing you know he'll be getting shooting lessons.

Kerry gives Obama a shooting lesson
Still, gun owners aren't going to believe this new Obama any more than they believed the "new" John Kerry in 2004. Here's a snip from an NRA assessment of Obama's record:

On the Second Amendment, Don’t Believe Obama!

The presidential primary season is finally over, and it is now time for gun owners to take a careful look at just where apparent nominee Barack Obama stands on issues related to the Second Amendment. During the primaries, Obama tried to hide behind vague statements of support for “sportsmen” or unfounded claims of general support for the right to keep and bear arms.

But his real record, based on votes taken, political associations, and long standing positions, shows that Barack Obama is a serious threat to Second Amendment liberties. Don’t listen to his campaign rhetoric! Look instead to what he has said and done during his entire political career.

FACT: Barack Obama voted to allow reckless lawsuits designed to bankrupt the firearms industry.

FACT: Barack Obama wants to re-impose the failed and discredited Clinton Gun Ban.

FACT: Barack Obama voted to ban almost all rifle ammunition commonly used for hunting and sport shooting.

FACT: Barack Obama has endorsed a complete ban on handgun ownership.

FACT: Barack Obama supports local gun bans in Chicago, Washington, D.C., and other cities.

FACT: Barack Obama voted to uphold local gun bans and the criminal prosecution of people who use firearms in self-defense.

Gosh, Weasley Clark is back and Barack Obama has him!

General Wesley Clark

Since he isn't running for President this time around, we haven't seen too much of former General Wesley "Weasley" Clark, probably the worst general in modern American history. I've kind of missed Wesley's delusional rantings like "President Bush was warned ahead of time about 9/11" and "does not want to find Osama bin Laden," not to mention the Vast Republican Conspiracy against him, but I'd assumed he was comfortably tucked away in some sinecure by folks who wanted the prestige of employing a former general and weren't too particular about hiring someone who got fired as NATO commander and was a few fries short of a Happy Meal.


It turns out that Weasley is being employed by none other than Barack Obama as a "military affairs" surrogate since Obama can't tell his rifle from his gun and apparently endorses Wesley's bizarre views. Clark appeared in that role this morning on Face the Nation, where he mostly demeaned John McCain's military service. It isn't clear how that improved the Obamessiah's non-existent credentials, but then as John Hawkins observes:
Of all the "ex-generals" floating around out there, perhaps the most odious is Wesley Clark.
I wonder if Barack has a cabinet position all lined up for this wingnut?
