Get Well Tony Snow

Apparently Tony Snow is under the weather, I hope it’s not related to his past bout with cancer. I think Tony is a great guy and he was the best press secretary I have seen in a while. He is getting ready to add a touch of class to CNN while still filling in for Bill O on Fox Radio.

Best wishes for a speedy recovery Tony!

Damn ABC, Damn them to hell!

I have marveled at the nutroots reaction to the Hillary-Barack debate. Cruise by DailyKos, DU, or the Huffpost and all the weenies are apoplectic over the questions from Gibson and Hairdoo. Hillary being a congential liar and having no shame was not as ruffled by the questioning as Barack who was clearly rattled. The basic difference between the two is that Hillary will say or do anything to get elected whereas I think Barack has a moral compass and would like to be true to himself and his beliefs. Going mainstream is not comensurate with the core of Hope 08.

Going back to the visceral and vitriolic reaction from the left Peter Wehner says is best over at Commentary:

 

“Shameful”?

Peter Wehner04.18.2008 – 11:45 AM

In an article today, Howard Kurtz of the Washington Post cites various media figures–from Tom Shales of the Post to Greg Mitchell of Editor & Publisher to Will Bunch of the Philadelphia Daily News to MSNBC’s Keith Olbermann–who are outraged at the performance of George Stephanopoulos and Charles Gibson during Wednesday’s Democratic debate. The ABC News duo’s performance, we are told, was “despicable,” “shameful,” and “disgraced democracy itself.”

And what did Stephanopoulos and Gibson do to earn this scorn? Why, they asked Barack Obama some probing questions, including one about his past relationships with the Reverend Jeremiah Wright, Jr. and a former leader of the Weather Underground, William Ayers.

Consider this thought experiment: Assume that a conservative candidate for the GOP nomination spent two decades at a church whose senior pastor was a white supremacist who uttered ugly racial (as well as anti-American) epithets from the pulpit. Assume, too, that this minister wasn’t just the candidate’s pastor but also a close friend, the man who married the candidate and his wife, baptized his two daughters, and inspired the title of his best-selling book.

In addition, assume that this GOP candidate, in preparing for his entry into politics, attended an early organizing meeting at the home of a man who, years before, was involved in blowing up multiple abortion clinics and today was unrepentant, stating his wish that he had bombed even more clinics. And let’s say that the GOP candidate’s press spokesman described the relationship between the two men as “friendly.”

Do you think that if those moderating a debate asked the GOP candidate about these relationships for the first time, after 22 previous debates had been held, that other journalists would become apoplectic at the moderators for merely asking about the relationships? Not only would there be a near-universal consensus that those questions should be asked; there would be a moral urgency in pressing for answers. We would, I predict, be seeing an unprecedented media “feeding frenzy.”

The truth is that a close relationship with a white supremacist pastor and a friendly relationship with an abortion clinic bomber would, by themselves, torpedo a conservative candidate running for president. There is an enormous double standard at play here, one rooted in the fawning regard many journalists have for Barack Obama. They have a deep, even emotional, investment in his candidacy. And, as we are seeing, they will turn on anyone, even their colleagues, who dare raise appropriate and searching questions–the kind journalists are supposed to ask. The reaction to Stephanopoulos and Gibson is a revealing and depressing glimpse into the state of modern journalism.

Well said.

 

Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed

My wife and I went to see the movie the other day and were stunned, we were not alone! Living in South Florida we thought we would be alone in the theatre. Much to our astonishment the theatre was packed by showtime.

The movie itself is an excellent satire and it is delightful watching the tables turned on some of these folks. Richard Dawkins looks particularly uncomfortable when he suggests that aliens may have seeded our existence while poo-pooing the idea of a “creator”.

The main message of the movie though is to look into the real assault on reason and highlight the need for an open discourse.

While watching the movie the “debate” over climate change came to mind. It made me think that these smart folks need to take another look at Popper and Kuhn before declaring the end to any debate or claiming absolute knowledge.

In the same way that marxists butchered Hegel’s dialectic by claiming the evolution of society ended at thier prefered destination so to the scientific community ignores the scientific method by declaring the end of knowledge to suit thier own ends….

Where is the left’s outrage?

While the left makes much of the “healthcare crisis” and both Democratic candidates offer some level of socialist redress to the issue we hear nothing of the Obama hypocrisy. Michelle Obama was the Vice President of Community and External Affairs at the University of Chicago Hospitals pulling in over $300,000 for a do nothing position. A position she promoted to after her husband joined the Senate. I’m sure the $250,000 raise was a coincidence.

The thing is, where is the outrage? If Dick Cheney was the CEO of a hospital you can imagine the vitriol. It is amazing what the left will turn a blind eye to if you are a socially promoted black woman. Maybe healthcare would not be so expensive if parasites like Mrs. Obama lived thier words.

Barack Supporters Are Mindless Sheeple

 

This kind of mindless enthusiams harkens back to another charismatic leader…

Barack Uber Alles!

 

Hillary the Fraud Part 1 Billion

Hillary Busted on Guns & Jesus

Hillary love Jesus and guns so much that she refuses to comment on when she went to church or when she last shot a gun. This lady is a total farce.
