New Ad Puts Blame Of Financial Crisis Squarely Where It Belongs

On congressional Democrats:

Don’t believe your lying eyes?

Check Snopes.

Do we really want these people to control congress, and the White House?


Hat tip: Ace


This really sickens me:

Why McCain Goes Easy on Fannie and the CRA

1) It is a complicated argument, and McCain is not good at making complicated arguments, not even about earmarks. (Note, additionally, his lack of defense of the war in Iraq during his debate with Obama. Amazing.)

2) There is a racial component to criticism of the Community Reinvestment Act that can make it sound like you are scapegoating minorities for Wall Street’s problems.

3) The campaign believes McCain’s time is better spent talking about taxes and energy and healthcare. Really.


On the first point. How complicated is it to say that Democrats resisted reform, and you called for it? WTF?

Second point: Again…WTF?! Obama has at least 95% of the black vote in the bag. What’s wrong with pointing out the truly damaging result of the CRA? The truth is on your side. Why should you care what people who are not going to vote for you, anyway, think about it?

Third point: talk about all of it, but ESPECIALLY the Democrats’ role in the Fannie Mae/ Freddie Mac debacle.

Good God! Get your act together, McCain camp. This HAS to come out. The public wants to blame Republicans for this, and that is going to kill your chances, and hurt the chances of ALL Republicans running for office this year, as well.

Man up!

Play the “blame game”. Play it to the hilt. Play it until blood is squirting out of their eyeballs. Bring up Barney Frank’s flaming former boy friend at Fannie’s.

It’s all good.

Watch This Movie!: An American Carol

An American Carol, which opens today, stars nearly every conservative actor in Hollywood, all 10 of them, and it skewers the bete noir of conservatives, everywhere:

It reworks the Charles Dickens Christmas Carol scenario so that a leftist filmmaker based on Michael Moore, painted here as an unpatriotic, America-hating boob out to banish the Fourth of July, is visited, schooled and slapped around by ghosts of Americans past, George Washington (Jon Voight) and Gen. George Patton (Kelsey Grammer), plus a ghost of the future, played by country star Trace Adkins.

Here’s the trailor:

Here’s a brief review with spoilers.

We really need to support this movie, folks. Another movie is coming out today…by the loathesome Bill Mahr, who does his own brand of skewering: of religious folks.

A review:

…Maher spears only small fish: marginal ministers, inarticulate eccentrics, some dude who plays Jesus at an Orlando theme park. You won’t see heavyweights like the Rev. Rick Warren or Tony Perkins of the Family Research Council, who might actually have scored a point or two. (And by the way, how did the filmmakers go about requesting interviews? Several subjects seem to have been ill-informed, if not misled, before the cameras started rolling.)

Maher claims that his mission is to use reason and logic to combat the fallacies of faith. In reality, his tools are sarcasm and humiliation. Either way, it’s a fool’s errand, as Maher – who is no fool – should know.

One movie skewers a fat, dishonest, hypocritical propagandist. The other one skewers religious folk.

‘Nuff said.

Let’s support An American Carol by watching it this weekend, and help it CRUSH Religulous at the box office.


Via Hotair, here are some reactions to the movie. Pay close attention to the immigrant who watched the film:
