Since Ace linked to me, I thought I’d better come up with something interesting for the morons to view.
So, here is the Patrick Tribbet (of TSG fame) inspired paint-huffer Halloween costume:
Dredged up from this old post.
There’s so much going on right now, on the OBAMA/ACORN front, that it’s almost too much to take in, and I’m actually finding it all emotionally exhausting:
Jim Hoft has:
This post at The Virginian, made me want to just lay down and take a nap:
It seems they may be slightly in the tank for Obama, and contacting the dept. through emails doesn’t work:
Glenn Reynolds has provided the names, addresses and phone numbers of the people at DOJ “who are apparently falling down on the job”.

Michelle Malkin has dubbed the Obama/ACORN partnership, OBAMACORN:
See her for additional links.
And hey, we don’t want to leave out the little kiddies:
Alice H points me to:
As I said in an earlier post, about Obama’s old party:
From the New Party’s Principles:
The New Party believes that the social, economic, and political progress of the United States requires a democratic revolution in America-the return of power to the people.
There is nothing democratic about massive voter fraud. There is nothing democratic about a stealth sham of a campaign. That doesn’t bring power to the people. It steals it away from them. And that’s what they’re hellbent on doing.
God bless Texas!
MORE ACORN ABUSE:
Via Hot Air:
McCain has said that Reverend Wright is off limits.
McCain HAS to allow Reverend Wright to become an issue again. This is NOT just about Obama’s ‘personal faith decision’, thus, an unfair road to go down.
Reverend Wright’s radical, black liberation theology informed Obama’s decisions, based on the research Stanley Kurtz has done on the Annenberg challenge grants given by Obama and Ayers to radical “afro-centric” programs:
It looks like Jeremiah Wright was just the tip of the iceberg. Not only did Barack Obama savor Wright’s sermons, Obama gave legitimacy — and a whole lot of money — to education programs built around the same extremist anti-American ideology preached by Reverend Wright. And guess what? Bill Ayers is still palling around with the same bitterly anti-American Afrocentric ideologues that he and Obama were promoting a decade ago. All this is revealed by a bit of digging, combined with a careful study of documents from the Chicago Annenberg Challenge, the education foundation Obama and Ayers jointly led in the late 1990s.
John McCain, take note. Obama’s tie to Wright is no longer a purely personal question (if it ever was one) about one man’s choice of his pastor. The fact that Obama funded extremist Afrocentrists who shared Wright’s anti-Americanism means that this is now a matter of public policy, and therefore an entirely legitimate issue in this campaign.
Read on about the poison Obama and Ayer’s grant money was funding.
Do you think the media will question Obama on any of this? Probably not, but Obama would have a hard time denying knowledge of these programs, as Kurtz explains:
Given the precedent of his earlier responses on Ayers and Wright, Obama might be inclined to deny personal knowledge of the educational philosophy he was so generously funding. Such a denial would not be convincing. For one thing, we have evidence that in 1995, the same year Obama assumed control of the Chicago Annenberg Challenge, he publicly rejected “the unrealistic politics of integrationist assimilation,” a stance that clearly resonates with both Wright and Carruthers. (See “No Liberation.”)
And as noted, Wright had invited Carruthers, Hilliard, and like-minded thinkers to address his Trinity congregants. Wright likes to tick off his connections to these prominent Afrocentrists in sermons, and Obama would surely have heard of them. Reading over SSAVC’s Annenberg proposals, Obama could hardly be ignorant of what they were about. And if by some chance Obama overlooked Hilliard’s or Carruthers’s names, SSAVC’s proposals are filled with references to “rites of passage” and “Ptahhotep,” dead giveaways for the anti-American and separatist ideological concoction favored by SSAVC.
We know that Obama did read the proposals. Annenberg documents show him commenting on proposal quality. And especially after 1995, when concerns over self-dealing and conflicts of interest forced the Ayers-headed “Collaborative” to distance itself from monetary issues, all funding decisions fell to Obama and the board. Significantly, there was dissent within the board. One business leader and experienced grant-smith characterized the quality of most Annenberg proposals as “awful.” (See “The Chicago Annenberg Challenge: The First Three Years,” p. 19.) Yet Obama and his very small and divided board kept the money flowing to ideologically extremist groups like the South Shore African Village Collaborative, instead of organizations focused on traditional educational achievement.
By all means, the McCain campaign should continue hammering Obama on his relationship with “school reformer”, Ayers:
Calling Bill Ayers a school reformer is a bit like calling Joseph Stalin an agricultural reformer. . . For instance, at a November 2006 education forum in Caracas, Venezuela, with President Hugo Chávez at his side, Ayers proclaimed his support for “the profound educational reforms under way here in Venezuela under the leadership of President Chávez. We share the belief that education is the motor-force of revolution. . . . I look forward to seeing how you continue to overcome the failings of capitalist education as you seek to create something truly new and deeply humane.” Ayers concluded his speech by declaring that “Venezuela is poised to offer the world a new model of education—a humanizing and revolutionary model whose twin missions are enlightenment and liberation,” and then, as in days of old, raised his fist and chanted: “Viva Presidente Chávez! Viva la Revolucion Bolivariana! Hasta la Victoria Siempre!”
But come on, McCain, Republican Party….gloves off on Wright, too. Someone has to inform the voters what they’re getting into before it’s too late, and we already know the MSM ain’t gonna do it.
Sweeet. Doug Ross found Barack Obama’s scrapbook…go take a look!
This is so beyond the pale; read this letter from an outaged parent:
My 8th grade son is in an advanced English class at a public middle school here in Racine, Wisconsin. I just found out that my son’s new (copyright 2008) Wisconsin – McDougal Littell Literature book has 15 pages covering Barack Obama.
I was shocked – No John McCain, no Hillary Clinton, no George Bush – Just Barack Obama. I’m wondering how it is that Obama’s story gets put into an 8th grade literature book? It would be one thing, if it was just the tidbit about his boyhood days, but 15 pages, and they talk about his “Life of Service”. Honestly, what has Obama really done to be included in this book? Not only that, but on page 847 there is a photo of Obama at the 2004 Democratic Convention with at least 8 Obama signs in the background! Front & center is an http://www.obama2004.com sign.
Now I understand that many teachers are liberals, but does the school have the right to shove Obama down our kid’s throats? All the kids grouped together and read the story. After that, they discussed it… I guess it appears that Obama is planning ahead. If he doesn’t get his coveted Presidency, Obama is going to make sure, that the younger generations know all about him, and his “life of service”.
If you would like to see the 15 page story on Obama, it appears that you can order this book online. There is a note in the book that says, For more on Barack Obama, visit the Literature Center at www.ClassZone.com The book is: Wisconsin – 8th grade – McDougal Littell Literature – copyright 2008. The Obama story starts on page 830. I hope you will take the time to look at this book. I’m really angry about this – In fact, I would love to rip the pages right out of this book.
Gateway Pundit says:
The hard Left is already pumping out massive Obama indoctrination material in 8th grade textbooks.
Maybe this was part of the Bill Ayers education plan?
8th grade students in Racine, Wisconsin are now using textbooks that contain a 15 page section on Barack Obama.
Note: No Hillary, No McCain, No Palin, No Bush… Just Obama!
How can such naked political indoctrination be allowed?! My God, if this is what public school textbooks look like now, what will they look like if the megalomaniac is elected?
If that wasn’t galling enough, there’s now a children’s book about the “dear leader”, which contains many of his enlightened life lessons:
Here’s where Obama learned many life lessons about “whitey”
You know, in the videos I saw of TUCC, the flock wasn’t sitting quite as so calmly as that…
