Crush Liberalism

Liberalism: Why think when you can “feel”?

UPDATE: Michelle Obama thinks America has sucked, until now

UPDATE (02/19/2008 – 02:39 P.M. EST):  Heh!  Cindy McCain takes advantage of Barry O’s old lady’s Freudian slip:

Tuesday morning seemed to bring the debut of yet another McCain-Obama flap – this time, Cindy McCain and Michelle Obama.

As she introduced her husband John McCain, the likely Republican nominee, at a campaign event, Cindy McCain told the crowd I “am proud of my country. I don’t know about you, if you heard those words earlier — I am very proud of my country.”

Heh!  Did I mention “Heh!”?

Wow.  This wench could be the First Lady.  Friggin’ wonderful.  From Hot Air:

That’s what she said today, if this quote is accurate.

“For the first time in my adult life, I am proud of my country,” she told a Milwaukee crowd today, “because it feels like hope is making a comeback.”

Only her husband’s run for president has made her proud of America? That’s…extremely narcissistic and self-centered.

Nothing America has done in Michelle Obama’s adult life, which at 44 goes back 26 years to 1982, has made her proud of her country? Nothing? Not winning the Cold War? Not our regular and orderly transitions of power based on the rule of law? Not the fact that we feed and defend the world, not that we lead in science and technology research, not that we elected the first black president in 1992…nothing? Not the fact that she and her husband were able to go to Ivy League schools before embarking on extremely lucrative careers? Not the fact that we help out in disasters wherever they strike in the world? Nothing has made Michelle Obama proud of her country in her entire adult life?

How sad. I certainly don’t want such a vain pessimist as First Lady. 

If you have not yet done so, go ahead and question their patriotism.

Beeb: al-Qaida wants McCain to win

Not that I’m outraged that much, considering that the Beeb is open about its liberal bias.  From Weasel Zippers:

This is via Justin Webb, the BBC’s North American editor. Who displays the insanely hard-left slant the BBC is known for and even embraces, as is painfully evident here…..

Islamic terrorists want war. They want suffering – among others and their own people alike.

They would surely surmise that McCain will give them what they want. Bin Laden himself intervened with what many thought was the effect of keeping President Bush in power in 2004 with that weird tape just before the poll.

I think al-Qaeda would back McCain – that is not an argument for or against America backing him, but it seems to me that the vague assumption that the terrorists would back a lefty is lazy thinking…

Nope, no liberal media bias…um…never mind.

Oregon government schools hide abusive teachers’ crimes from public

From Neal Boortz:

How long should it take a principal to fire a teacher who touches students inappropriately? About three seconds: “You are fired.” But in Oregon it takes months for the agency that licenses Oregon teachers to discipline teachers. Not even fire them. But just discipline them.

Or there is another option: cut the teachers a deal. To get a low-life middle school government teacher, Kenneth John Cushing, to leave immediately … the administration had to cut him a deal. What did this creep do? They called it “inappropriate touching.” In other words, he fondled about eight little girls. Government officials agreed that if Cushing resigned, that they would conceal his misconduct from the public. So if a potential employer called the school looking for a reference, the school would simply say that he left for personal reasons. They would lie about this creep’s actions. And some teachers got away with more … promised cash settlements, health insurance and letters of recommendation.

Over the past five years, almost half of Oregon teachers that were disciplined for sexual misconduct left the school district with these “confidential agreements.” The practice of giving these creeps confidentiality is so widespread that government school officials across the country call it “passing the trash.”

There couldn’t be a better phrase. 

Another harmful side effect that government schools have inflicted on society.

Castro done

The moonbat suicide watch is on.

After a half century of torture, oppression, snuffing out dissent, and heavy-handed pinko-style authoritarianism (to which we’ve grown accustomed from the left), Fidel Castro is hanging it up in Cuba.  He will pass on his misery machine to someone else, likely his sadistic brother Raul.

I’d like to say that the hope I’ve held for years for the people of Cuba is going to be realized, but I don’t think it will be.  Not for a while, anyway.  I firmly believe that nothing short of a revolution similar to the one that launched the malevolent Castro to power nearly 50 years ago will break the shackles of despair that chains Cuba today.

Having said that, this is a small victory for freedom lovers around the world.  Let’s hope that it continues to improve, and that Cuba moves away from a communist dictatorship to a capitalist (in whole or in part) republic.

Clinton going after Obama’s “pledged” delegates

Her Highness will stop at nothing to win the nomination.  And these cretins have the gall to bellyache about the 2000 election?  From Politico:

Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign intends to go after delegates whom Barack Obama has already won in the caucuses and primaries if she needs them to win the nomination.

This strategy was confirmed to me by a high-ranking Clinton official on Monday. And I am not talking about superdelegates, those 795 party big shots who are not pledged to anybody. I am talking about getting pledged delegates to switch sides.

What? Isn’t that impossible? A pledged delegate is pledged to a particular candidate and cannot switch, right?


Pledged delegates are not really pledged at all, not even on the first ballot. This has been an open secret in the party for years, but it has never really mattered because there has almost always been a clear victor by the time the convention convened.

But not this time. This time, one candidate may enter the convention leading by just a few pledged delegates, and those delegates may find themselves being promised the sun, moon and stars to switch sides.

“I swear it is not happening now, but as we get closer to the convention, if it is a stalemate, everybody will be going after everybody’s delegates,” a senior Clinton official told me Monday afternoon. “All the rules will be going out the window.”

Rules of good behavior, maybe. But, in fact, the actual rules of the party allow for such switching. The notion that pledged delegates must vote for a certain candidate is, according to the Democratic National Committee, a “myth.” … 

I can’t help but think (and hope) that this naked power grab will cause such animosity on the left that if the Hildebeast does manage to steal win the nomination, it will be a pyrrhic victory.
