Liberalism: Why think when you can “feel”?

Biden: Iraq is “bad guy”-free

This would be a candidate for “Quote of the Day”, but Dean Barnett already beat me to it:

If we had a “Most Offensive Quote of the Day” every day, Joe Biden would probably come to own the prize. But even by the senator’s lofty standards of chronic obtuseness, he outdid himself this afternoon:

“If John (McCain) wants to know where the bad guys live, come back with me to Afghanistan. We know where they reside. And it’s not in Iraq.”

I know Democrats get a certain tingling in their thighs when their politicos talk butch (“talk butch”…I love it! LOL! – Ed.) in such a manner, but this comment is so over the top, somewhere in America Wesley Clark is probably feeling much better about his public relations acumen. What’s more, Biden’s comment turns what ought to be a serious conversation about two vital foreign theatres into a juvenile schoolyard taunt.

I have a suggestion for the senator: Perhaps he could bring his newly benign assessment to our soldiers who are serving in Iraq and the veterans who have served there. It would surely come as a huge relief to our soldiers currently in Iraq that their work has suddenly become “bad guy free.” Perhaps Biden should also bring his crass bad-guy-appraisal to the attention of all of the Iraqis who have stood by us and who, like our soldiers, have given and still are giving so much for that nation’s freedom. …

But hey…Plagiarist Joe “supports the troops”, right?

Quote of the day

McCain on Barry O’s impending “fact-finding” trip to Iraq and Afghanistan:

And I note that he is speaking today about his plans for Iraq and Afghanistan before he has even left, before he has talked to General Petraeus, before he has seen the progress in Iraq, and before he has set foot in Afghanistan for the first time. In my experience, fact-finding missions usually work best the other way around: first you assess the facts on the ground, then you present a new strategy.

Ouch.  Hope and change…and stuff.

New Yorker cover proves liberals can’t take a joke

The New Yorker is a well-known notorious liberal rag.  Many of you are aware of their recent magazine cover that attempts to satirize us rubes on the right by drawing caricatures of Barry O and his moonbatty old lady in a manner that plays on supposed right-created stereotypes: he’s a Muslim, Osama bin Laden’s picture in the Oval Office, the American flag being burned in the fireplace, etc.

Well, those of us on the right got the joke, and we were the butt of said joke.  Unlike followers of the Religion of Perpetual Outrage, we didn’t riot or loot or threaten bodily harm (or worse) on the artist or his family, friends, vehicles, pets, etc.  However, a similar kind of reaction has come in response to the cover…but it’s come from the left!

You would think the left would have “Hardee har-harred” at this elitist anti-right display.  But no.  See, the humor-impaired legion of the left thinks that such satire actually reinforces these views that we supposedly have about the Chosen Ones, and that come election time, that cover will be the driving factor at keeping us away from pulling the Obamaliar’s lever.

You want to know how absurd this is?  Even the editors at the LA Times and Salon are telling the left that, in the immortal words of Foghorn Leghorn, “It’s a joke, son, ya missed it!”  How hilarious that the alleged refined, nuanced intellectuals on the left made themselves, instead of us righties, the butt of the joke!  😆

Obama deletes references to “failed surge” predictions from his web site

Down the memory hole, ladies and germs!  From the NY Daily News:

Barack Obama’s campaign scrubbed his presidential Web site over the weekend to remove criticism of the U.S. troop “surge” in Iraq, the Daily News has learned.

The presumed Democratic nominee replaced his Iraq issue Web page, which had described the surge as a “problem” that had barely reduced violence.

“The surge is not working,” Obama’s old plan stated, citing a lack of Iraqi political cooperation but crediting Sunni sheiks – not U.S. military muscle – for quelling violence in Anbar Province.

The News reported Sunday that insurgent attacks have fallen to the fewest since March 2004.

Obama’s campaign posted a new Iraq plan Sunday night, which cites an “improved security situation” paid for with the blood of U.S. troops since the surge began in February 2007.

It praises G.I.s’ “hard work, improved counterinsurgency tactics and enormous sacrifice.”

Campaign aide Wendy Morigi said Obama is “not softening his criticism of the surge. We regularly update the Web site to reflect changes in current events.”  (Changes such as “he was flat-out wrong from the get-go”? – Ed.)

GOP rival John McCain zinged Obama as a flip-flopper. “The major point here is that Sen. Obama refuses to acknowledge that he was wrong,” said McCain, adding that Obama “refuses to acknowledge that it [the surge] is succeeding.”

I’m guessing he thinks that with the MSM running interference for him, no one will notice his removal of evidence of his flawed judgment…you know, the judgment upon which he’s been running his entire campaign?

British cops charge victim of stolen car for damages incurred in the chase

Yes, you read that correctly.  A law-abiding citizen in the UK had his car stolen, and a police chase with the car thief ensued.  During the chase, a police car was damaged.  The police have decided to send a bill for damages…to the car owner!

And the left wants us to emulate the Euros?  I don’t think so.
