Crush Liberalism

Liberalism: Why think when you can “feel”?

Crist: I’m a true independent. Meek: Um, no, you’re not, and I’ve got the video to prove it!

I’m Crush Liberalism, and I approve this message!

This may be the first Dem ad I’ve ever seen that has gotten me giddier than Taylor Swift at a Kanye West dunk tank.  Enjoy!

Batsh#t crazy Alan Grayson (D-FL) compares GOP opponent to Taliban, gets scolded by…nutjobs at MSNBC?

The thrill has left even Matthews’ leg for Grayson for this bit of jack@ssery.  Both of  MSNBC’s viewers were appalled at Grayson’s tactics.  Video clip here, and I would embed it, but it’s too much douchebaggery for me to stomach.

His opponent is Dan Webster, whose fundraising after Grayson’s Godwin-violating ad has gone through the roof.  Thanks, Congressman Moonbat!

Union boss: We need to force socialism on America!

Well, his buddy B.O. is certainly trying.  But you don’t normally see this kind of telegraphing one’s intentions, do you?

From the AFL-CIO blog, violence-promoting labor chief Richard Trumka urged his fellow leftists to seize back power from the Tea Party movement and take back “control of the national conversation.”

Gloves off:

With the economy continuing to stagger and job creation not moving quickly, “working people are justifiably angry and frustrated” as they approach the Nov. 2 elections, says AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka.

 

…In the short term, said Trumka, the labor movement has to “recapture the moment and take control of the national conversation.” Building for the future, we need to fundamentally restructure our economy and re-establish popular control over the private corporations which have distorted our economy and hijacked our government. That’s a long-term job, but one we should start now.

Sorry, pal, but we’re taking the trash out in five weeks.  And if your portly behind wants to sit in my garbage can, I’ll me more than happy to gorilla press you out to the dumpster, Humpty.

Hoyer vulnerable?

Hmmmm.  How delicious would that be?  Story here, but lemme drop an appetizer on you:

Here’s the thing: Democrats think Hoyer is bulletproof, but there are good reasons to believe that the incumbent is far more vulnerable this year than anyone suspects. As I explained before the primary, GOP candidate Collins Bailey got 80,000 votes in 2008 — a high-tide year for Democrats when Obama carried the 5th District by a 2-to-1 margin

Democrat enthusiasm is way down this year, so their turnout is likely to be far lower. In 2006, a midterm election that was also a big year for Democrats, there were barely 200,000 votes cast in the 5th District race. So if there is a similar turnout Nov. 2, and Lollar merely matches the GOP’s 80,000 total from 2008, that puts him at 40%. Add another 15,000 votes, and he’s in shocker-upset range.

Black.  Marine.  Conservative.  Energetic.  And most importantly, not Pelosi’s Pet.  Vote for Charles Lollar.

Kerry: The reason we’re losing is that voters are just too friggin’ stupid!

Boy, if that’s not a golden closing argument to the electorate, I don’t know what is!  From Jean-François Heinz-Kerry (who is rumored to have served in Vietnam), we get this:

On Friday, Kerry knocked voters as clueless for not paying close enough attention to national issues and being too easily swayed by catchy slogans.

We have an electorate that doesn’t always pay that much attention to what’s going on so people are influenced by a simple slogan rather than the facts or the truth or what’s happening,” Kerry said.

Projection ain’t just a river in Egypt.  Or something.  Anywho.

Seriously, the man represents a party that gets its ideas from bumper stickers and slutty pop artists who wear cold cuts for clothing, and he wants to lecture us about simplicity?  Really?  Really?

Anywho, Bubba comes in for the save, and in the process, further bolstering our argument that Dems see themselves as smarter than us rubes:

“I wish (voters) had the kind of access to information that I do,” he said. “You can’t put 20 stories about this (election) on the front page every day, right? We have to do a better job publicizing ourselves.”

We do have that kind of access, Bubba.  Thanks to your former vice-president’s invention, we all have that kind of access.  It’s that very access to information that’s making life hell for you and your party right now, you elitist sophomoric perverted hick.

Vulnerable ND Dem runs new ad embracing…Bush?

House member Earl Pomeroy (D-ND) is in deep trouble this year, and he knows it.  He’s resorted to the lowest possible tactic that the left can stomach: touting his vote with Der Fuhrer Bu$hitler McRummyburton on the prescription drug benefit.  Details:

We’ve seen plenty of Democrats in tight races trying to distance themselves from President Obama. But one Democrat, North Dakota’s Rep. Earl Pomeroy, is taking this a step farther by actually embracing President George W. Bush. 

Pomeroy is locked in what’s shaping up to be the toughest contest of his 17-year House career. He faces GOP state Rep. Rick Berg.

In his latest ad, Pomeroy goes a step further, highlighting his support for the Bush prescription drug plan which he says Berg would “roll back.”

The ad opens with a bill signing featuring President Bush while a woman’s voice says, “When George Bush proposed a Medicare prescription drug plan, Earl Pomeroy voted yes, putting seniors before party.. Rick Berg would roll back prescription drug coverage.”

BTW, the link’s URL is “http://blogs.abcnews.com/thenote/2010/09/vulnerable-dem-rep-embraces-obama-in-latest-ad.html”.  Way to use those “multiple layers of fact-checkers”, ABC!  😆

UN to appoint envoy for…aliens

And not aliens as in “legal vs. illegal”, but as in “E.T. phone home.”  Excerpt:

THE United Nations was set today to appoint an obscure Malaysian astrophysicist to act as Earth’s first contact for any aliens that may come visiting.

Mazlan Othman, the head of the UN’s little-known Office for Outer Space Affairs (Unoosa), is to describe her potential new role next week at a scientific conference at the Royal Society’s Kavli conference centre in Buckinghamshire.

ObamaCare doesn’t suck as bad as we thought. It sucks worse than we thought.

Here is a great rundown (short, to the point) about how everything we were told by the left and the MSM (pardon the redundancy) about ObamaCare was crap.  Takeaway line:

If you wonder why so many American voters are angry, and no longer give Obama the benefit of the doubt on a variety of issues, you need look no further than Obamacare, whose birthday gift to America might just be a GOP congressional majority.
Anytime President Kick#ss opens his mouth, I automatically remember this line from My Cousin Vinny:

Crist: Hey, you know what could save Social Security? Amnesty for illegal aliens!

This must be seen to be believed:

Believe it or not, there is a more jaw-dropping statement from Governor Oompa Loompa:

When asked why he was sending out mailers with differing messages to different voting blocks, Crist explained that he was trying to reach out to all voters.

Wow.  Just wow.  “Voter block 1 wants to hear that I’m pro-choice, and voter block 2 wants to hear that I’m pro-life.  So I’ll send out mailers to both of them with different messages, telling them what they want to hear.  You know, to ‘reach out to all voters’ and stuff?”

He’s talking out of both sides of his mouth, which is tough to do through such a shiite-eating grin.

Billboard touts the wonderful education system in South Bend

I don’t really know that there’s much for me to add to this:

Story:

SOUTH BEND, Ind. (WANE/WSBT) – An embarrassing billboard spelling error on a sign meant to tout South Bend schools has been pulled.

The billboard is a digital one near the intersection of State Road 23 and Ironwood in South Bend. It went up on Thursday and was pulled Monday morning.

The billboard encouraged people to go to “southbendon.com” to check out the “15 best things about our PUBIC schools.” Obviously it was supposed to say “public“, but the “l” was left out.

Edyookashun iz kool!  😆

Snark aside, and in fairness to the school…

The president of a company called “the Blue Waters Group” told WSBT-TV the mistake was not made by the city or the schools.  He said the ad was proofed by 4 people and the typo got by all of them.

These four proofreaders will be glad to know that they have promising careers waiting for them at CBS News.

Quote of the day, “Obama’s illegal alient aunt says we owe her citizenship” edition

Point to ponder: Is it possible for a criminal alien to possess this degree of chutzpah?  Apparently, yeah:

BOSTON (WBZ) “If I come as an immigrant, you have the obligation to make me a citizen.” Those are the words from 58-year-old Zeituni Onyango of Kenya in a recent exclusive interview with WBZ-TV.

Screw the law.  Because she made it across the border, her prize for violating our laws should be…citizenship.  Got it.  Thanks for the clarification.

Jimmy Carter: I’m awesomely McAwesome when it comes to former presidents!

Dude.  I don’t know what else to say, really, except…dudeExcerpt:

I feel that my role as a former president is probably superior to that of other presidents. Primarily because of the activism and the– and the injection of working at the Carter Center and in international affairs, and to some degree, domestic affairs, on energy conservation, on– on environment, and things of that kind. We’re right in the midst of the– of the constant daily debate.

He’s right.  I mean, those tinpot dictators aren’t going to hug themselves, are they?  Good grief, some American has got to go give credence to shady elections in Zimbabwe and Venezuela (among other places) while trashing elections in America, right?

If you thought Jimmy the Dhimmy was a few fries short of a Happy Meal with that comment, wait until you see this one:

But I hope that Obama will have as successful a term as I had in dealing with our nation’s domestic and international affairs. And if he does, I’ll be very proud of him, as I happen to be proud of myself, having had a successful administration when I was in office.

For the sake of our country and her survival, I’m hoping B.O. has set the bar much higher than that.  Although at this rate, I’m thinking he hasn’t.

If, by “having had a successful administration when I was in office”, Carter means this, then yeah…”successful”!  It’s a shame that schools no longer teach history, or else the voters two years ago would have realized what a Carter clone President Kick#ss was and perhaps this generation’s “malaise” could have been avoided.

Marco Rubio lays the smack down on Crist in debate, to his face, with a smile

Here‘s the video clip.  It’s at Univision, so you have to endure a Spanish advertisement before seeing the video, but it is sooooo worth it!  Partial transcript:

…For twenty years you’ve run as a Republican, running on the same things that you now criticize me for. Four months ago you were running against me as a Republican and saying the things you now criticize me for. You only changed parties and did this Independent thing when you couldn’t win a Republican primary and now you wake up everyday and try to figure out what you can say or do to take votes away from Congressman Meek so more Democrats will vote for you. …

The money line begins at the 3:12 mark of the video.  Ouch!  Watch Suntan Chuckie squirm nervously!

Murkowski launches write-in candidacy

She got beat in her primary.  Then she says she’s “not a quitter” and decides to launch a long-shot write-in campaign, ignoring the fact that getting beat isn’t the same as quitting.  Will she siphon off enough votes from Joe Miller to get a Democrat elected in a cherry red state during the Great Red Tsunami of 2010?  Time will tell.

Joe Miller tore into her by saying that Murky’s “lifeblood is power“, and I think that’s obvious to anyone.  After all, she complained that getting beat in her primary “didn’t give all Alaskans a voice” in the matter…which is the friggin’ point of a party primary, right?

Exit question (albeit one that requires a little setup here, so bear with me):

Is what Murky doing the same thing as what Lieberman did in CT in 2006?  I mean, Liebs got beat in his party’s primary, then turned around and ran as an indy and won.  The left tried to say that what Crist did in FL is no different than what Liebs did four years ago, to which the response is “Of course it’s different!”  See, Suntan Charlie quit the party when he realized he was going to get beat, before his party’s primary.  Afterwards, he disavowed everything he had ever allegedly stood for his entire political life.  Joey L never did that in CT, and his voting record since then proves he is still a Democrat.  I’m not saying that Liebs didn’t run as an indy for the purposes of holding onto power, as I’m sure that’s exactly why he ran.

That said, I must ask because I fancy myself as a consistent fellow: While Crist’s situation isn’t the same as Murky’s, is what Murky doing the same thing as what Lieberman did in CT in 2006?

DNC unleashes secret weapon against GOP in a stunning “September surprise”

My worst fears have come true.  Yes, even worse than keeping the DE Senate seat blue.  I hope you’re sitting down, because this is so dispiriting to conservatives everywhere!

Two days ago, DNC chief Tim Kaine promised “something that will excite Democrats across the country”.  And boy, did they indeed!  Here it is:

Their super-duper red-tsunami-killing secret weapon is…a logo!

And not just any logo, mind you, but a powder-blue sissyfied logo with a rehashed slogan.  Hold. Me. Back.

Heck, why even show up at the polls, folks?  They’ve peed in our coffee mugs yet again, stunning us with such an unforeseen and dazzling display of brilliance from which we cannot recover.  Undoubtedly, Pansy #ss Logo will get their stoner base off the couch and their welfare brood mares out of their babydaddy’s beds and into the voting booth on Nov. 2 like nothing else will!  Crap…punked again.

I think Allah nails this one here, far better than any of my snark above:

I figured the “major announcement” would have something to do with their online organization, but how could anyone not have guessed that it would involve a logo? Better “branding” and salesmanship are always, always their solutions to their political problems; the policies themselves are brilliant, so how could anything except poor “messaging” explain a decline in the polls? Consider this an absurd yet perfectly foreseeable extension of that logic. GOP tsunami coming in November? Time to go nuclear, then: New logo.

Exactly.  “Judge us by our accomplishments?  Nah, instead, check out our new logo!”

Well, if there’s any silver lining for the left, it’s this: Considering their failed philosophy is based on stuff that will fit on a t-shirt or bumper sticker, this superwickedawesome logo will serve a purpose after all!

DC Dem Congresswoman “Delegate” hits up lobbyist for campaign contribution

The Dems’ culture of corruption continues.  Breitbart has the full story and transcript of the voice mail left by Norton (yes, she actually left a voice mail of the shakedown request!), as well as analysis of whether federal law and/or House ethics rules were violated.  Excerpt of transcript (read the full thing):

…I was, frankly, uh, uh, surprised to see that we don’t have a record, so far as I can tell, of your having given to me despite my uh, long and deep uh, work. In fact, it’s been my major work, uh, on the committee and sub-committee it’s been essentially in your sector.

I am, I’m simply candidly calling to ask for a contribution. As the senior member of the um, committee and a sub-committee chair, we have (chuckles) obligations to raise, uh funds. And, I think it must have been me who hasn’t, frankly, uh, done my homework to ask for a contribution earlier. …

Drew already knows what the MSM narrative will be:

Why does Andrew Breitbart hate black women?

Heh.

The Obamas “feel your pain”, all the way to their black-tie parties this week

The hayseed from Arkansas that used to diddle portly interns in the Oral Oval Office was, admittedly, good at the “I feel your pain” schtick.  Ergo, President Kick#ss is going to give it a whirl:

President Obama told a small crowd in Fairfax, Va., on Monday that he would stand in the hot sun with them and “feel their pain.”

He was meeting with a Fairfax family for a backyard discussion on the economy in an effort to improve voter perceptions about his empathy with ordinary people.

And by “feel your pain”, he means this:

President Obama and first lady Michelle Obama have a packed social schedule this week, with two major galas and a reception for college athletes.

On Monday evening, the president will welcome collegiate star athletes to the White House for a reception at 5:45 p.m. The annual event, first held by former President George W. Bush, recognizes outstanding student athletes in more than a dozen sports, including field-hockey, lacrosse, and volleyball. Neither of Obama’s alma maters, Columbia University and Harvard University, made the grade.

On Wednesday the First Couple will don black tie for the annual Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute gala, one of the more entertaining political galas of the Washington fall season. A number of entertainers are being honored with awards, including Eva Longoria Parker, five-time Grammy winner Arturo Sandoval, and musician Sheila E. Also participating in the festivities will be Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.), Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), and New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg.

Hopefully the Obamas get some rest Thursday or Friday, because they will be back in formalwear on Saturday night for the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation’s (CBCF) annual Phoenix Awards dinner. The dinner will mark the culmination of the foundation’s 40th Annual Legislative Conference.

Nothing quite screams “empathy” quite like tux-clad galas among the elites, no?  But as Shelly O says, it’s “hell” being First Lady, no?  We should be feeling her pain, right?

Never underestimate the ability of the GOP to screw up a sure thing

I’m about ready to swear off Sarah Palin and the Tea Party.  They can kiss my backside, as far as I’m concerned.

In case you haven’t seen by now, Sarah’s gal up in Delaware, Christine O’Donnell, defeated Mike Castle in the GOP Senate primary.  Every stinkin’ poll under the sun showed that Castle would easily defeat his Dem opponent, Chris Coons, in November and claim a Senate seat in a deep blue state.  So what does Palin and the Tea Party Express do?  They endorse O’Donnell, a woman who has so much baggage she ought to be Springer’s co-host on the game show.

What do you need to know about this race?  Only this:

Democrats rejoiced along with her supporters.

Yes, Castle is a RINO, and like you, I don’t like RINOs.  But for the love of Pete, people, this isn’t Lisa Murkowski we’re talking about!  Murky was a RINO in a cherry red state, and we don’t need RINOs from red states when conservatives will do nicely.  Castle is a squishy Republican who did vote for cap-and-tax in the House, but who also wanted to repeal ObamaCare and would have cast a vote for Mitch McConnell (or whomever the GOP picks) as Senate leader.

Let me repeat this: Castle was guaran-friggin’-TEED to win this seat!  And now, thanks to a gal and a group of people who are more interested in RINO hunting than in preventing a Dem-controlled Senate from nominating more Elena Kagans to the Supreme Court, this is a seat that is guaran-friggin’-TEED to stay blue.  But hey, at least Palin and the TP got ’em a RINO scalp, right?

Get this through your head, people: Delaware is as blue as that stupid hen that serves as its state bird.  Ace had a wonderful post last week whereby he stated that you move a blue state purple, a purple state red, and a red state redder.  The electorate in DE is not going to move from blue to deep red!  Just as Scott Brown won us over, despite not being a dyed-in-the-wool conservative, we could have endured Castle just as we’ve endured the Maine sisters (Snowe and Collins) because they were from blue states that wouldn’t be sending any Tom Coburns to the Senate anytime soon!

Palin and the TP pushed for Sharron Angle in NV, too.  Every poll in the world showed the two other Republicans in that primary (Sue Lowden and Danny Tarkanian) as beating the snot out of Harry Reid.  But since Lowden was an “establishment” candidate (but there was no reason to smack Tark, as he was not such a candidate), she had to be “purged” for Angle.  That nomination has breathed new life into Reid, and it is now unnecessarily neck-and-neck.

So, to recap: Palin and the TP bag themselves a RINO, and in the process, this seat is now gone...along with ANY hopes of taking back the Senate.

Sorry if I’m coming across as a pessimist, but I’m just calling it like I see it.  In this big red wave coming this year, the GOP (being led astray by Palin and the TP) looks poised to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory.

Obama “saves or creates” one job, to the tune of $18k, to monitor news coverage of Gulf oil spill

I watched a campaign commercial for the FL governor’s race this morning, where Republican Rick Scott played a video clip of Alex Sink stating her undying belief that Obama’s got “right message” and the “right economic plan” to get us moving forward.  Since President Steve Urkel took office, Florida’s economy has taken a hit worse than most states.

Add this to the growing pile of evidence that Sink’s judgment about B.O. is a little off, to say the least:

The federal government hired a New Orleans man for $18,000 to appraise whether news stories about its actions in the Gulf oil spill were positive or negative for the Obama administration, which was keenly sensitive to comparisons between its response and former President George W. Bush’s much-maligned reaction to Hurricane Katrina…

Among all the contracts, perhaps none is more striking than the Coast Guard’s decision to pay $9,000 per month for two months to John Brooks Rice of New Orleans, an on-call worker for the Federal Emergency Management Agency, under a no-bid contract to monitor media coverage from late May through July.

Rice told the AP that he compiled print and video news stories and offered his subjective appraisal of the tone of the coverage. “From reading and watching the media I would create reports,” he said. “I reported either positive coverage, negative coverage, misinformation coverage.”

$18k for two months of work, creating reports?  Man, propaganda sure is expensive!

Here’s another expenditure that I couldn’t make up even if I worked for Dan Rather:

Yet the government’s new contracting data includes errors and vague entries that make it difficult to identify wasteful spending. It spent $52,000 on a boat charter described merely as “marine charter for things,” with no further explanation.

A. Marine. Charter. For. “Things“.  Whiskey Tango Foxtrot?

President Kick#ss has no grasp on basic economic principles whatsoever, yet he wants to adopt a central planning command approach.  This November, we can stop him dead in his tracks.

My “Gainesville Koran burning” take

My apologies for making you fine folks wait this long for my coveted opinion on the Gainesville Koran burning thing.  I know you have been waiting with bated breath.  😆

First of all, anything that originates in Gainesville is stupid.  That goes without saying.  😀

Secondly, the pastor who is doing this cannot be doing this with Christian intentions.  While our Bible teaches us that there is only one way to Heaven (and that’s through faith in Jesus) and that we are to be unapologetic and unashamed of Him in every way, it teaches us a lot of other things, too.  Intentionally enflaming a lot of people, without regard for anyone who may be adversely affected, is not a Christian trait.  This is not being done with love in his heart, at least not in any way that I can see.

Finally, General Petraeus says it’s a horrible idea in terms of the dangers that the burning could bring to our troops.  I’ll defer to his superior judgment on that matter, so if he says it endangers the troops, that’s good enough for me to oppose it.

All that said, I find the reaction of the left to be infuriating and hypocritical.

For one, President Training Wheels has opined that the Koran burning is a horrible thing to do.  Shouldn’t he be saying something like “I support their First Amendment right to do this.  I’m not going to comment on the wisdom of doing it, though.”?  I mean, he had no qualms about Muslims building a mosque on Ground Zero, saying that the First Amendment was sacred.  Now that a group of maybe 50 people want to exercise their First Amendment rights, suddenly it’s not a good idea?  President Kick#ss is voting “Present” on the wisdom of building a Ground Zero mosque but voting “No!” on the wisdom of Koran burning.

Also, part of what this pastor is doing is (he claims) based on his observation that Islam is a violent religion.  So how does the Muslim world react to this pastor’s claims of violence in their religion?  Why, they react with threats of violence, that’s how!  Way to prove your opposition right, Ahmed.

Finally, isn’t it refreshing (or sad, take your pick) to finally find a religion around which the left can rally?  After crapping on Christianity since time immemorial, the left finally gets around to fighting for a religion…and it’s a religion that wants them dead.  Friggin’ brilliant, leftards.  Ace sums it up beautifully (profanity redacted):

Furthermore, we continue to encourage Islamist killers. Every time they kill, what message does the nation and its communicative institutions parrot over and over?

1) Islam is a religion of peace.

2) Islam is one of the world’s “great religions.”

3) The overwhelming majority of Islam’s faithful are good, pious people.

Every time they murder in the name of Allah, then, we all collectively begin shouting how f##king wonderful Allah is.

Is it any surprise they continue to murder us then? They kill us, and we then proselytize on their behalf.

I’m not pulling a Charlie Crist here and waffling on the matter.  I think the Gainesville church should drop the idea of burning Korans, for reasons both Christian and strategic in nature.  But I don’t need the hypocritical,  politically correct left telling us about how bad it is, as their views ring quite hollow.

Environuts claim another victim: last GE light bulb plant in America shuts down

The left has been telling us that moving to “green jobs” will benefit the economy.  They were correct.  It will be a boost to the economy…of ChinaDetails:

The last major GE factory making ordinary incandescent light bulbs in the United States is closing this month, marking a small, sad exit for a product and company that can trace their roots to Thomas Alva Edison’s innovations in the 1870s.

The remaining 200 workers at the plant here will lose their jobs.

“Now what’re we going to do?” said Toby Savolainen, 49, who like many others worked for decades at the factory, making bulbs now deemed wasteful.

During the recession, political and business leaders have held out the promise that American advances, particularly in green technology, might stem the decades-long decline in U.S. manufacturing jobs. But as the lighting industry shows, even when the government pushes companies toward environmental innovations and Americans come up with them, the manufacture of the next generation technology can still end up overseas.

What made the plant here vulnerable is, in part, a 2007 energy conservation measure passed by Congress that set standards essentially banning ordinary incandescents by 2014. The law will force millions of American households to switch to more efficient bulbs.

The resulting savings in energy and greenhouse-gas emissions are expected to be immense. But the move also had unintended consequences.

Rather than setting off a boom in the U.S. manufacture of replacement lights, the leading replacement lights are compact fluorescents, or CFLs, which are made almost entirely overseas, mostly in China.

All to address a problem that doesn’t freakin’ exist!  200 jobs sacrificed on the altar of the Church of Mother Gaia.  As for how “immense” the savings will allegedly be, The Optimistic Conservative does great analyzing.  Teaser: he uses the expression “fart in a thunderstorm” to describe just how “immense” the energy savings will be.  On that expression alone, you should read his post!  😆

UPDATED: Florida state representative…Crush Liberalism?

Hmmmm.

Let’s see…

Republican gubernatorial candidate Rick Scott just picked his running mate, state representative Jennifer Carroll.  She is my district’s representative.  If Scott wins, she will vacate her seat to become the lieutenant governor of our fine state.  If she vacates her seat…I can’t think of anyone who might be in line to fill that office.  Can you?  😀

Anywho, as you were.

UPDATED (9/8/2010 – 10:00 pm EST):  Never mind.  She has vacated her seat, win or lose.  The state GOP hand-picked her replacement, a Jacksonville city councilman who heads the NE FL Builders Association.  Heck, those guys need the job a lot worse than I do these days!  😆

Las Vegas fishwrap: Hey, doesn’t Obama’s new $50 billion union payoff stimulus sound like an awesome idea?

Sure it does.  I mean, the $800 billion “stimulus” did two things for the ec0nomy: jack and squat.  So what does President Kick#ss and his sycophants in the Vegas fishwrap propose?  Tossing another $50 billion at the problem.

Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.  That’s the B.O. (and Vegas) way.

L.A. school on polluted grounds named after Al Gore

On the first day of school, irony will be the feature menu item!  Excerpt:

School district officials insist that the Arlington Heights property is clean and safe. And they’ve pledged to check vapor monitors and groundwater wells to make sure.

The $75.5-million Carson-Gore Academy of Environmental Sciences will open Sept. 13 for about 675 students. As he was with Bill Clinton (who has an L.A. middle school named after him), Gore is second on the ticket to Rachel Carson, the late author credited with helping launch the modern environmental movement.

“Renaming this terribly contaminated school after famous environmental advocates is an affront to the great work that these individuals have done to protect the public’s health from harm,” an environmental coalition wrote in a letter to the Los Angeles Unified School District. Making sure the school is safe “would be an even better way to honor their contribution to society.”

No word yet on the school’s mascot, but rumor has it that the students will decide between the Crazed Sex Poodles or the Fighting Manbearpigs.
