“SAVE OUR BIDEN”
“Oh! God love ya…what am I talkin’ about”?
We’ve all seen the wild internet rumors. We’ve all seen the viral email, Rush more than anyone. He says his inbox is overflowing with this email:
“On or about October 5th, Biden will excuse himself from the ticket,
citing health problems, and he will be replaced by Hillary. This is timed
to occur after the VP debate on 10/2.
There have been talks all weekend about how to proceed with this info.
Generally, the feeling is that we should all go ahead and get it out there
to as many blog sites and personal email lists as is possible. I have
already seen a few short blurbs about this – the ‘health problem’ cited in
those articles was aneurysm. Probably many of you have heard the same
Stay tuned…I will relay instructions to the VRWC as soon as they become clear.
Here’s what El Rushbo said on his show, yesterday:
Obama is the next target for a bailout, I am convinced. Now, let me set this up. I’m sure that quite a few of you who are spending any time at all on the computer have received what I have received a gazillion times. By the way, as a little heads up, those of you out there who receive things in e-mail, these flash blast e-mails that go out: If you think I haven’t seen it yet, change your mind. By the time you see it, I have seen it so many times, I have practically thrown the computer up against the wall. You don’t need to forward these things to me. I am a magnet for this stuff. Anyway, the latest going around is this flash e-mail sent by somebody claiming to have inside information at the DNC that the Democrat National Committee and Obama have gotten together and they have decided to get rid of Biden.
October 5th is the day that they’re going to get rid of Biden, and the reason they’re going to get rid of him — the excuse that they will use — is that Biden will declare a medical emergency of some kind. You know, he once had an aneurysm that they caught in time and were able to have surgery on. If something like this happens, folks, it’s not going to be medical, because that would impact his Senate service. If he comes up with something medical to disqualify him as Barry’s running mate then how does he go back to the Senate? What I have heard, and I don’t put any stock in it — well, I haven’t put any stock in it, until today. These gaffes just keep mounting up here. And some of them really don’t make any sense. I mean Biden out there ripping one of Obama’s own ads?
His final report on Obama and Ayers’ work together on The Annenberg project is in, and it’s a devastating indictment of Obama’s radical leftism, and poor judgment.
William Ayers was not just “a guy who lived in his neighborhood.”:
One unsettled question is how Mr. Obama, a former community organizer fresh out of law school, could vault to the top of a new foundation? In response to my questions, the Obama campaign issued a statement saying that Mr. Ayers had nothing to do with Obama’s “recruitment” to the board. The statement says Deborah Leff and Patricia Albjerg Graham (presidents of other foundations) recruited him. Yet the archives show that, along with Ms. Leff and Ms. Graham, Mr. Ayers was one of a working group of five who assembled the initial board in 1994. Mr. Ayers founded CAC and was its guiding spirit. No one would have been appointed the CAC chairman without his approval.
The CAC’s agenda flowed from Mr. Ayers’s educational philosophy, which called for infusing students and their parents with a radical political commitment, and which downplayed achievement tests in favor of activism. In the mid-1960s, Mr. Ayers taught at a radical alternative school, and served as a community organizer in Cleveland’s ghetto.
Read the whole infuriating thing.
100 Million dollars frittered away through far-left community organizers, such as ACORN on flaky, multi-culti, afrocentric programs.
The real goal of Ayers and his puppet, Obama was to radicalize students and their parents, not to improve Chicago’s public schools, the stated reason for the Annenberg grant. That’s why it failed miserably at improving test scores. How successful they were at radicalizing students and their parents, is anyone’s guess.

Heads should be rolling over this:
Officials at the Merced County school confirmed Thursday that Jake Shelly was forced to take off a red, white and blue tie-dyed American flag T-shirt on Tuesday. The shirt said nothing offensive, just: “United States of America, Washington, D.C.”
The school’s assistant principal issued Shelly a bright yellow T-shirt that read “DCV: Dress Code Violator” to wear for the rest of the day. He was given his shirt back after classes ended.
“It was really embarrassing and humiliating to have to wear that all day — and just for supporting your country,” his sister Kaycee Shelly said.
Kaycee Shelly told members of the media at lunchtime that her brother was overwhelmed and did not want to do any more interviews.
Earlier in the day, he was speaking with a local news station when an unidentified teacher walked up to him, ripped off the microphone clipped to his shirt and told him he was not allowed to talk to the media.
How was this travesty allowed to happen?
“In reviewing the dress code at the time, an administrator felt the shirt was in violation of that section of the dress code,” said Superintendent Brian Walker. “She asked him to remove it and he did.”
You know what should be removed? The administrator who did this:
The assistant principal initially thought Shelly’s T-shirt violated a clause of the school dress code that does not allow “shirts/blouses that promote specific races, cultures, or ethnicities.”
Uh huh. One can’t help but wonder if the dress code was only an excuse to satisfy her anti-American bias. That’s how it looks from here.
The school ended up apologizing for the outrage the next day, and has vowed to interpret that clause in the dress code —- “differently” from now on.
Here’s the part I love:
Students on campus started a campaign to wear as much red, white or blue clothing and carry as many flags as possible Thursday in protest of Tuesday’s decision, despite the apology. Jake Shelly wore the same shirt he wore Tuesday and was not disciplined.
“I am glad so many people are supporting this and wearing red, white and blue,” his sister said. She believes the swift change in rules was because of the overwhelming student action.
A.J. Galindo is one student who wore a patriotic shirt to school.
Galindo’s shirt honored Marine Cpl. Joshua Pickard, a family member who died in Iraq in 2006. Pickard’s two brothers remain active in the Marines.
“I think it is horrible that you can’t wear an American flag to school without something like this happening,” he said, referring to the flurry of activities during the school’s lunch hour. “We have people fighting for our country and dying every day, but we can’t wear an American flag at a public school?”
A.J. said he was proud of the patriotism displayed by his classmates.
If you want to be hip, and counter-cultural in today’s America….just wear a patriotic tee-shirt, maaaan, and stick it to those aging hippies.

Michelle Malkin has a story out of Aurora, CO. about an 11 year old boy who was SUSPENDED for his red white and blue tee-shirt.
Granted, this one was a little edgier…
UPDATE on the Merced County school story:
A commenter, Suzie provides some additional info about the school:
The Vice Principal, Mrs. Heather Ruiz knew what she was doing. She was outraged, to see a white U.S. student wearing a U.S. patriotic shirt.
Jake was not humiliated just once, but twice, on national television. While Jake, was being interviewed by a reporter, his microphone was yanked from his shirt, by a teacher. She screamed at him, that he had no right to talk to the media. How many times, is it okay to humiliate and to violate the civil and constitutional rights of a U.S. citizen youth.
Gee, I wonder if either the V.P. or the teacher were fired.
Dos Palos High School is 69% hispanic’ and 30% white. Mrs. Ruiz was afraid, the Mexican children would be offended, by Jake’s shirt. Our children had to stand back in 2006 and 2007 and watch illegal Mexican children, march and wave the Mexican flag in their faces. In some cases, the American flag was taken down and a Mexican flag was put in it’s place in front of the school. These are not American children of Mexican descent. These are Mexican children, here illegally. It is not the fault of the Mexican children, but that of the adults in charge. The adults are behind this new bigotry, against our U.S. children. Our children are being taught, they do not have a country. It belongs to the world and they have to stand back and take it.
I say, ” The heck we will and neither will our children.”
I suspected as much.
