Video:Palin/Biden Debate

In case you missed it, or just want to watch it again to savor those special moments. Keep you ears peeled for these awesome whoppers by Biden, as well as the patently absurd claim that the U.S. spends more in Iraq in one month than we’ve spent in Afghanistan since the beginning of that war. More: Wow, the gaffes keep piling up!

Part One:

Part Two:

Part Three:

Part Four:

Part Five:

Part Six:

Part seven:

Part eight:

Part nine:

I *think* that’s all of them!

Did that “fact” that  Biden kept bringing up about the Iraq War costing more in one month, than the enire war in Afghanistan set any bullshit meters to spinning? Yeah, good catch.


I think Rich Lowry’s in love:

I’m sure I’m not the only male in America who, when Palin dropped her first wink, sat up a little straighter on the couch and said, “Hey, I think she just winked at me.” And her smile. By the end, when she clearly knew she was doing well, it was so sparkling it was almost mesmerizing. It sent little starbursts through the screen and ricocheting around the living rooms of America. This is a quality that can’t be learned; it’s either something you have or you don’t, and man, she’s got it.

‘Cuda Attack!

I’m not going to mince words. Sarah rocked the house! Biden is still licking his wounds.

She got under Biden’s skin, put him a little off his game, and caused him to make some factual errors. See Ace for the 14 lies.

And if you were hoping that Palin would tie the Democrats to Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, (and she didn’t)…don’t you fret. It will come. It. will. come.

Michelle Malkin is pumped:

Sarah Palin is the real deal. Five weeks on the campaign trail, thrust onto the national stage, she rocked tonight’s debate.

She was warm, fresh, funny, confident, energetic, personable, relentless, and on message. She roasted Obama’s flip-flops on the surge and tea-with-dictators declarations, dinged Biden’s bash-Bush rhetoric, challenged the blame-America defeatism of the Left, and exuded the sunny optimism that energized the base in the first place.

McCain has not done many things right. But Sarah Palin proved tonight that the VP risk he took was worth it.


Watch for a whole new, severe strain of Palin Derangement Syndrome to begin tonight.

They hated her before tonight. They are going to pour on more unfathomable hate at a level we have never seen before.

Sarah, we’re praying for you.

You know what’s funny? Apparently Andrew Sullivan, (SULLY!) lamented the Palin steamrolling of Biden, although he eventually spinned it somehow to Biden’s advantage. Safe Dan Riehl link. (I would never link to that stanky thang!)

More good news: Luntz focus group Independents overwhelmingly think she won the debate.

Peggy Noonan says “she killed”.

A highlight:

“Cuda: “Your plan is a white flag of surrender”:

Jonah Goldberg:

What struck me the most about the debate – and it probably helped having quintessential Obamaphiles in the room – was how Biden’s “gravitas” is derived almost entirely from the fact that he can lie with absolute passion and conviction. He just plain made stuff up tonight. I read a long list tonight in my debate with Beinart here at Wash U, we can visit the details tomorrow.

Just a few: Flatly asserting that Obama never said he’d meet with Achmenijad; that absolute nonsense about spending more in a month in Iraq than we’ve spent in Afghanistan (“let me say it again,” he said as if he was hammering home a real fact); the bit about McCain voting with Obama on raising taxes; his vote in favor of the war etc.

It’s amazing how the impulse to see Biden as the more qualified and serious guy stems almost entirely from his ability to be a convincing b.s. artist. I’m not saying Palin was always honest or unrehearsed, but when she offers up a catchphrase or a talking point, you can tell. When Biden spews up a warm fog of deceitful gassbaggery the response seems to be “what a great grasp of the issues he has!”

Read the whole thing. I was thinking along the same lines.

Heh! You could say David Brooks liked her performance.

An Aussie’s view:

In Palin, the Left has found a new conservative to fear and loathe.

Had she been a community organising Democrat woman who bore a child out of wedlock and favoured affirmative action, abortion on demand, gun laws and gay marriage, they would be saying very different things about her.

Give her a break, they would say. Stop poking fun at her private life. The White House is replete with examples of inexperienced politicians, they would argue.
Palin has attracted the blowtorch from progressives for one reason alone. What really scares them are her conservative views about family, faith and country – not her political inexperience.

And what frightens them even more is the fact that Palin speaks directly to a broader audience of social conservatives whom progressives can never really understand because they don’t want to.

That she spoke in straight-talking language with humour and charm to middle America during yesterday’s debate will mean that after progressives have wiped away their tears of disappointment, they can return to their infuriation at the Palin phenomenon.

She may not win McCain the election come November. But yesterday at Washington University, Palin certainly didn’t lose it for him.

This is just so darn cute of Rich Lowry:

I’m sure I’m not the only male in America who, when Palin dropped her first wink, sat up a little straighter on the couch and said, “Hey, I think she just winked at me.” And her smile. By the end, when she clearly knew she was doing well, it was so sparkling it was almost mesmerizing. It sent little starbursts through the screen and ricocheting around the living rooms of America. This is a quality that can’t be learned; it’s either something you have or you don’t, and man, she’s got it.

Massive Voter Fraud In Ohio, Likely

This is such a travesty.

Early voting has started on Ohio, and thanks to Secretary of State, Jennifer Brunner, (DEMOCRAT), people can register and vote on the same day.

Soren Dayton of The Next Right reports:

So here is what is happening today. People are showing up to register and vote. There is no affirmative evidence that these people have not registered or voted somewhere else. There is no control. Normally in an election, partisan election monitors are allowed into polling places so that they can police each other. But not in two counties, Franklin and Montgomery, in Ohio. Brunner also issued an advisory opinion to counties saying that they are not required to allow election monitors.

And they’re taking that advisory to heart:

That guy was so full of shit. GAH.

Here’s Lou Dobbs, scratching his head at Ohio’s new election rules:

Hyscience has one more infuriating video, that shows Acorn types literally dragging indigents  out of homeless shelters, and off the street to get them to the polls.

Chicago rules.


We’re going to lose, Ohio, folks. It’s over.


I’m not kidding. The election is getting stolen right under our noses.

Listen to this Brunner lackey valiantly attempt to defend the no observers rule:

The Squeaky Wheel at Bearing Drift Ohio got plastered listening to the guy:

New drinking Game: Every time this lackey staffer says “the legislation did not provide for it” take a drink. I did and I am pretty f*cked up right now… and I only listened to this once!

“it helps in Ohio that we have democrats in charge of the machines.” –Barack Obama

Watch the video in which Obama says that at Bearing Drift Ohio.

Narcissism Alert: Obama Has His Own Channel

Well, isn’t this special?

Channel 73 on the Dish Network is now labled, The Obama Channel, and folks are wondering, “What is up with Sen. Obama having his own channel?”

The only explanation: The media buyers think they can reach enough people per dollar to make it worth the odd buy.

The channel’s appearance has provoked scorn and alarm on conservative blogs, though, and some discussion on a forum for Satellite TV aficionados, where one user writes that a Dish Network executive emailed to reassure the user that  it “is paid advertising by the Obama campaign and is not an endorsement of Senator Obama by DISH Network” and will broadcast through November 4.

Dish Network spokesman Parker McConachie confirmed the forum account, and stressed that the channel is paid advertising, and not a corporate endorsement.

This is just one more example out of many, of Obama’s unbelievable narcissism.

But, you know what? It’s probably working.

I wonder if his channel was paid for with any of the “funny money” the Dept. of Justice refuses to investigate?


Noel Sheppard at Newsbusters says, “What the heck’s going on, here?”

A media approved Obama product to store your Koolaid in.

What a mihrab means to the Wahhabists, the Khomeini-ists and the other Salafists

Blogburst logo, petition

In 1981, Ayatollah Khomeini explained the meaning of a Mecca-direction indicator (called a mihrab), like the one now being planted on the Flight 93 crash site:

Mehrab means the place of war, the place of fighting. Out of the mehrabs, wars should proceed, just as all the wars of Islam used to proceeded out of the mehrabs. [Hat tip Yoel Natan, Moon-o-theism, p. 30]

The I-ah-told-you-so wasn’t just speaking allegorically either. The University of Chicago’s Francis Joseph Seinglass Comprehensive Persian-English dictionary lists amongst its definitions for mihrab: “warlike,” and “a field of battle.” (Hat tip Czechmade.)

Anyone who thinks it is okay to build the world’s largest mihrab on the Flight 93 crash site really should read Khomeini’s whole speech (his tribute to Muhammad). It’s only two pages, but psychopathic hellspawn like Khomeini can pack an awful lot of murder-lust into a short space, when every stinking sentence is a plea for wanton slaughter.

From beginning:

The real Day of God is the day that Amir al mo’menin drew his sword and slaughtered all the khavarej and killed them from the first to the last.

To end:

We believe that the accused essentially does not have to be tried. He or she must just be killed. Only their identity is to be established and then they should be killed.

“The accused,” of course, is YOU, and all the other “discontented people” who do not readily submit to the murder-cult’s endless demands.

To rid the world of who they accuse of violating God’s law, they grant themselves exemption from the Sixth Commandment. Evil stupidity. Maggots for brains. Matched only by the see-no-evil stupidity of a western world that is so defrauded by its dishonest left wing media that it is losing the capacity to fight back.

Will we really build a Salafist memorial mosque on the Flight 93 crash site? Will we really elect a president who is in bed with Islamofascists and domestic terrorists alike? Will we really let Iran get the nuclear weapons with which to wipe city after American city off the map, as they so desperately crave? Will we really turn off the energy spigot–the key to past and continuing progress–based on utterly fraudulent claims of human-caused global warming, even as the world descends into a substantial cooling phase?

None of these issues should even be in question, yet the minority of us who are trying to stem the collapse of the nation can barely battle even these gimmies to a draw, and could lose all four. If the nation survives this “moment” in history–this long war with Islamic fascism and with our own liberty hating left–it will be thanks to the relative handful of people who recognize honest reason and evidence as impenetrable armor and unbreakable sword against those who seek advantage in manipulative dishonesty.

The demagogues and their dupes are powerful in numbers, but blind. Their hostility to contrary reason and evidence divorces them from reality, leaving them ignorant of surrounding truth. That is our advantage. We know the lay of the land, and can use it to defeat them, but we still have to get up and do it.

Obama’s Not-So Funny Money

Obama has been flagrantly violating election law. It’s time to raise holy hell.

From The American Spectator’s Washington Prowler:

An auditor for the Federal Election Commission is attempting to have his bosses seek a formal investigation into the collection by the Obama for President campaign of more than $200 million in potentially illegal political donations, including millions of dollars of illegal, foreign donations, and has sought a request for assistance from the Department of Justice or Federal Bureau of Investigation. But the analyst’s requests have largely been ignored. “I can’t get anyone to move. I believe we are looking at a hijacking of our political system that makes the Clinton and Gore fundraising scandals pale in comparison. And no one here wants to touch it.”

One reasons cited by his superiors, says the analyst, is that involvement by the Justice Department or FBI would be indicative of a criminal investigation, something the FEC would prefer not take place a month before the presidential election. Such actions, though, have been used to scuttle Republican campaigns in the past, the most famous being the Weinberger case in the days leading up to the 1992 re-election bid of President George H.W. Bush.

The analyst, who declines to be identified for fear of retribution, says that on four different occasions in the past three months, he sought to open formal investigations into the Obama campaign’s fundraising techniques, but those investigations have been discouraged. “Without formal approval, I can’t get the resources I need, manpower, that kind of thing. This is a huge undertaking.” And the analyst says that he believes that campaign finance violations have occurred.

If you don’t start investigating these things until after the person is elected….what good is it?
