A year ago today, Barack Obama was sworn in as President of the United States. Today, he wakes up rejected by the independents who elected him and a social pariah within the Democrat Party. Outside of the Congressional Black Caucus and a handful of far left seats in Congress, it is hard, this morning, to imagine any Democrat wanting Barack Obama to go out on the campaign trail. Every statewide candidate for whom Obama has campaigned since his election has lost.

Sore Loser Olbermann: Doubling Down On Yesterday’s Anti- Brown Idiocy

I probably shouldn’t even be giving this D-bagger the time of day, but I can’t help myself. I  always criticize people who slow down and crane their necks to gawk at horrific wrecks, and here I am doing it:

I think the burden of proof for these unhinged, nonsensical charges would be on the person making them. Otherwise, they’re what we might call “smears”.


Video: Out-of-State Union Thugs Throw Reporter Out Of Coakley Office

These Coakley staffers flogged Godwin’s law to a bloody pulp, today, as they refused to allow a reporter into the office, citing private property and civil rights, “which we still have despite Nazis like you”.

Q: So, what did the Nazis think of a free and open press?

A: Nazi Germany (1933-1945)

The dictatorship of Adolf Hitler largely suppressed freedom of the press through Joseph GoebbelsMinistry of Public Enlightenment and Propaganda. As the Ministry’s name implies, propaganda did not carry the negative connotations that it does today (or did in the Allied countries); how-to manuals were openly distributed by that same ministry explaining the craft of effective propaganda. The Ministry also acted as a central control-point for all media, issuing orders as to what stories could be run and what stories would be suppressed. Anyone involved in the film industry—from directors to the lowliest assistant—had to sign an oath of loyalty to the Nazi Party, due to opinion-changing power Goebbels perceived movies to have. (Goebbels himself maintained some personal control over every single film made in Nazi Europe.) Journalists who crossed the Propaganda Ministry were routinely imprisoned or shot as traitors.

Oh. Well played, libtards.

Ruby Slippers found John Stewart’s befuddlement of the MA race on last night’s show amusing. I think the guy needs to step out of his lib cocoon once in awhile to see what real Americans think.

Anybody who can say Teddy Kennedy was the “most beloved Senator in the history of the Senate” with a straight face is wildly out of touch with what most Americans really think.


Well, Well, Scott Brown Wasn’t Stiffed By The Republican Party, After All

But you knew that, already, right? Because I reported as much on December 30, when everyone else was saying that the Republican party was not giving him adequate support.  Hey, I heard it from the horse’s mouth.

FYI: I listened in on a conference call with Brown, yesterday, and was surprised to learn that those rumors about the GOP leaving him in the cold were greatly exaggerated. In fact, “Don’t believe everything you read” is a direct quote from Brown. He wanted us to know that the GOP wasn’t stiffing him. But he is being greatly outspent by his well connected opponent, MA Atty Gen Martha Coakley, who has special interest, and  union $$$ backing her.

Now Ed Morressey is reporting:

NRSC, RNC quietly moved money into Massachusetts last two weeks

This was a brilliant move by both the NRSC and the RNC.  They didn’t fall into a Democratic trap by trumpeting their involvement with Brown, who wanted to show as much independence as possible.  Coakley and Obama spent Sunday making Brown look like a tool of the Tea Party movement and the GOP national machine, but it was Coakley getting bailed out by Democratic heavyweights from outside Massachusetts.

Incidentally, in that post, I also linked to that hunky Cosmo spread of Brown, which I found whilst googling, the first blogger to notice it, (it was from a Sept. issue), not that I got any hat tips out of the deal. Hmmmph.

Okay, it’s not really KO, but it’s a damn good impersonation of him:

Q: So who was that?

A: Funnyman, Michael Terry, website, here.

He says at the Youtube site, that it was one of the impressions he submitted as part of his SNL demo.

It’s old, but particularly relevant, today.
