Friday’s Retirepolooza

How many more people are gonna leak that they’re retiring, today?

So far, we have Bart Stupak, whom Slublog refused to give the flaming skull treatment to. You’ll have to click to see what he merits. Then there’s Justice Stevens, who does get the flaming skull, but I think we all knew this was coming. Drew at AoSHQ wonders: Does Obama go with a stealth lib like Sotomayor, or go for broke with a lefty dream nominee? Well if the past six months are any indication, I say he goes for broke. Get ready to be outrageously outraged.

Here’s a pleasant surprise via Laura Ingraham onTwitter…still in the rumor stage:

Sources tell me Bawney Fwank won’t run for re-election. Wants to work on the board of a bank and make $ before retirement.

Good news for us if true, baaaad news for the bank…


Wouldn’t this be a breath of fresh air for Massachusetts?

Heh, Doug Ross’s response to The Stupak news, right here.

Stay tuned…

R..S. McCain took the opportunity to interview former Governor of NM,  Gary Johnson, and other “popular, super cool guys” at SRLC;  his report, here.

Ed Morrissey is also here, today: SRLC: Live interview post

Livestreaming of the speeches, starting at noon cst, here.

The word is, Sarah Palin’s speech will happen at the same time as Obama’s Rose Garden speech, and will be pre-empted on cable. Watch on live stream.

And ….here she is!

“Obama Doctrine” is “Coddling Enemies” While “Alienating Our Allies”.

“They say, ‘Yes you can.’ We stand up and say, ‘Oh no you don’t.'”

“Shoot, look at Texas. Oh, shoot, I said shoot.”

She’s spending most of her time on energy issues…her area of expertise…and she’s letting Obama and the environmental wackos have it with both barrels.

She thinks Obama is trying to get support for Cap and Tax in Congress…pretending to compromise, but his idea of compromise is more of the status quo.

More video of Palin’s speech, here.

Next up, LA Governor Bobby Jindal:
