LOW (so far)!

Over the weekend, a group of despicable leftwing (and some conservative, I’m sorry to say) critics have accused Senator John McCain of war crimes for bombing targets in Hanoi in the 1960s. It was WAR you morons – dropping bombs is what fighter pilots DO for heaven’s sakes! But of course, any time anyone military performs the duty for which he has been trained and educated, that is despicable behavior according to those pantywaist morons at Daily Kos and other sites!

Senator McCain has been accused of "disloyalty" during his captivity in Vietnam for his coerced participation in propaganda films and interviews after he’d been tortured. Is this news to someone? Senator McCain has never made a secret of the fact that, after extensive and unimaginable torture he reached his breaking point. Most of Senator McCain’s leftist critics would trumpet all manner of untruths and disloyalties (enthusiastically) after one splinter was inserted under one pinkie fingernail! Hell, the THREAT would cause them to moisten their BVDs, let alone perform in propaganda films.

I do not blame ALL liberals for this calumny. More, I blame Jay Rockefeller, Wesley Clark, and all the other gutless wonders on the Left who hate the military that keeps them free to speak despicable calumnies against a man who, while I may not be overjoyed with his conservative credentials, still is a man to be absolutely respected and admired for his service to our nation. Wesley Clark should know better, but of course, he is driven by cowardice, envy, ambition and greed on his best day! General Clark is the Left’s poster boy for military sedition and in my opinion entirely too stupid to realize that he is being used for un-American purposes.

If any part of this election is about the ability to understand and support our military while they protect us from barbaric lunatics, nobody with double digit IQ scores would support Barack Hussein Obama, a man with no experience, no qualifications and no competence in this (or any other) area.

If you can only speak sedition and disloyalty to this nation that protects your right to be an asshole or you feel the burning need to impugn the character of a man whose shoes you aren't fit to touch, keep your freaking mouths SHUT dammit! And yes, this has really ticked me off!

UPDATE: The exceptional Mary Katherine Hamm has this to say, today: [re: McCain's response] Not nearly barbed enough for my liking. Don't play the "he's distracting you with unnecessary attacks" game. Go all out, John! This calls for the righteous indignance you normally reserve for conservatives!

NOTE TO SENATOR McCAIN: Don't make the mistakes made by Bob Dole against the Clintons. Being a gentleman is nice at a tea dance or when courting a woman as spectacular as your wife Cindy. Up against a snake like Senator Obama - full bore boogie, son!

Where is the Iowa disaster coverage? (We take care of our own.)

Where are all of the Hollywood celebrities holding telethons asking for help in restoring Iowa and helping the folks affected by the floods? (We tend to think most of them are asses and don't even want their help.)

Where is all the media asking the tough questions about why the federal government hasn't solved the problem? Asking where the FEMA trucks (and trailers) are?
(We Iowans, otherwise know as "Iowegians" have neighbors who will put us up. No FEMA or trailers necessary.)

Why isn't the Federal Government relocating Iowa people to free hotels in Chicago?
(We don't want to stay in Chicago... as we'll camp out and help our neighbors at or close to home. THEN we'll take care of our own needs.)

When will Spike Lee say that the Federal Government blew up the levees that failed in Des Moines? (Spike Lee doesn't care about all of us, "Crackers" in Iowa and none of us need him anyway, so it's a "wash" hahaaha.)

Where are Sean Penn and the Dixie Chicks? (Iowans really don't think much of the Dixie Chicks, since they have been against the very standards we stand for. Seah Penn could come help when he has a few days to haul sand bags. Yeah, righty-o.)

Where are all the looters stealing high-end tennis shoes and big screen television sets? (*Note: There has been some looting reported).
(For the most part... looting hasn't crossed most of Iowan's minds... too busy sandbagging and checking on neighbors.)

When will we hear Governor Chet Culver say that he wants to rebuild a "vanilla" Iowa, because that's the way God wants it? (Gov. Culver knows Iowans are busy and that they all know, "God helps those who helps themselves.")

Where is the hysterical 24/7 media coverage complete with reports of cannibalism?
(Iowans are too boring. They work and take care of whatever needs to be taken care of. No time for t.v. right now... besides the new Spears baby is what's most important to those media writers.)

Where are the people declaring that George Bush hates white, rural people?
(Again.... we're all too busy to care. Have things to do, so let's "get 'er done.")

How come in 2 weeks, you will never hear about the Iowa flooding ever again?

(Because we'll have our towns taken care of and on with our lives.)
End of story.

If this doesn't make you understand the difference between Obama and McCain and why it's so important to vote for John McCain, then I don't know what will. So go ahead and sit on your hands "to teach the Republicans a lesson" - this will be the result. If the past two years have taught you nothing else, this nation cannot AFFORD this new breed of quisling, cowardly, utterly indefensible Democrat!

In a WorldNetDaily exclusive, it appears that Lt. Col. Jeffrey Chessani is preparing to file suit against that despicable and senile old fart, Rep. John Murtha, as well as sycophantic mainstream moron, Tim McGuirk of Time Magazine. Good going, Sir!

It’s about damned time that these blithering idiots in the U.S. Congress were held to account when they commit wanton defamation and slander against members of the U.S. military, particularly since their motives are generally less than honorable. And Rep. Murtha’s prior military service does not exempt him from observing U.S. law as it applies to these kinds of calumnies. Ignorance is no excuse either!

Loose (and dishonest) lips do more than sink ships, they dishonor our brave and selfless military and do enormous harm to our nation’s reputation and standing in the real world – which is a realm unknown to and uninhabited by the plethora of mental midgets in both houses of the U.S. Congress – whose disapproval rating is now hovering at around 80%. And these bozos have the brass cojones to criticize President Bush?

The dear man isn't an attorney!

Do I make a good point or what?


The Associated Press honchos seem to have their panties in a twist over the fact that occasionally bloggers quote their stories in their blog posts. They now propose to charge bloggers for the use of excerpts from AP stories. Unfortunately, the Associated Press (once a respected news gathering organization) has only published their rates for non-fiction quotes. Since most of what the Associated Press purveys these days is almost exclusively in the realm of fiction, we are still awaiting the listing of those costs!


Once again, a blatant and rather dazzling display of ignorance emanates from the mouth of his royal majesty, the Democratic Party nominee presumptive who says that drilling isn't the answer to our fuel costs as it would take 5 years to help bring down the cost of fuel.

His answer, which “will bring immediate change”, is a windfall profits tax on oil companies. Of course, the additional tax will be passed on to us in the form of basic costs but Senator Obama probably either hasn’t figured out that basic economic fact, or he thinks we are too stupid to do so!

Note to Senator Obama: It will not take 5 years to bring down the cost of fuel, because the current cost of fuel is being driven UP by speculators around the world, not by anything our nation is or is not doing. This is a typical leftwing meme: claim that the common sense solution to a problem will take too long and our memories are too short. Not so fast, you incompetent huckster – the American people are a whole lot smarter than you even begin to believe and we’re a whole lot better informed thanks to the Worldwide Web.

The mere fact that we are drilling off our own shores (as opposed to China and other nations who are already doing so) and that we are energetically being who we are and seeking to solve our own problems without reference to “letting the government do it” (which is a trifling way to think and behave) will send a strong message to speculators that we are through letting them screw around with our economy.

I swear - what WERE the Dems thinking? I'm no fan of Hillary's as you know, but compared to this incredible dimwit, she's a true rocket scientist!

Is Barack Hussein Obama actually even a native-born American citizen? The rumblings have been growing ever since he apparently assured himself of the Democratic Party nomination for President.

Barack Obama was born in Hawaii of an underage American mother and a Kenyan father. Although a record of his birth is available on the Web, it is also apparently true that his birth was registered in Mombassa Kenya! Furthermore, his mother's 2nd marriage to an Indonesian man, caused the family's relocation to Indonesia. Did his mother's 2nd [Muslim] husband adopt Barack Hussein Obama? And by so doing, did he invalidate his new son's American citizenship. Some of the point made are that (1) his mother couldn't pass on her native-born American citizenship to young Barack simply because she was a minor at the time of his birth; (2) regardless of where Senator Obama was actually born, due to his Kenyan father and the fact of his birth being registered in Mombassa, Obama's claim to citizenship is on shaky ground. It is further alleged that, because Barack's mother married an Indonesian Muslim who then, allegedly, adopted Barack Obama that she effectively surrendered her son's citizenship.

To me it's all murky and defies logic on a number of levels.

What's the intelligence emanating from the blogsphere? Is he real or is he Memorex?

UPDATE: I asked the most intelligent (and Republican) attorney I know about this and here's his response:
My thought is that whoever thinks these up has way too much time on their hands. If he was born on American soil, why is not that the end of the matter?
Case closed!


Gore endorses Obama and attacks Bush in Detroit

Jun 16, 10:32 PM (ET)

DETROIT (AP) - Al Gore made his debut in the 2008 presidential campaign Monday night, encouraging voters to back Barack Obama because "take it from me, elections matter."

Rumors have been flying that Gore will be Obama’s pick for vice president. Given all the truly horrendous choices of associates made by Bambi in his lifetime, why disrupt his pattern? Choosing old pauncho village idiot would be at least as smart as hanging out with Rev. Wright for 20 years!

Given the rapidity with which highly credible information is surfacing which refutes the global warming fantasies of our favorite mincing ex-vice-president, this is another minefield Senator Obama would do well to avoid. However, he seems intent on preventing John McCain’s loss in November, and we do all wish him well with that plan!

Well, maybe not entirely. As some of you may have heard on your local news, the District has been plagued all this week by a series of problems on the Metro transportation system. Monday and Tuesday of this week, the Orange line which runs from the District out to Vienna, Virginia had track problems, which led to me overhearing what may be one of the more hilarious exchanges in a long time:

Her: It seems like the Metro is always having problems around Courthouse station.

Him: At least this week.

Her: Well, they should just close that station!

Me: (HUH?)

And no she wasn't a blonde!

Wednesday, the Orange line had some kind of kinks again and then yesterday, just to keep it interesting, the Red line developed problems.

This morning as I tried to cross 12th and F Streets to get to the Metro Center station for my trip from the car pool drop off to my office, I noticed (it was hard not to) that the traffic signals were out. This is a VERY busy intersection and it took some fancy footwork to get across. I finally got behind a very LARGE man (had to be an ex-football player) and scurried in his wake! Got down into the Metro and there were some "issues" with the visibility and then I heard the announcement that there had been an electrical fire on the tracks in Metro Center which necessitated turning off the power - power which was now being restored in increments.

But the best fun was when I got to McPherson Station to get off the train - NO lights to speak of and, worse yet, the escalators and elevator were not working at all! Now bear in mind that I am 66 years old and have arthritis in the bottom 6 vertebrae of my spine and my left knee. I am very proud to report that I did make it up 63 steps from underground to the ground level. After I stopped a moment to catch my breath, I proceeded around the corner heading toward my office building. That's when I realized that in front of the office building next door to the one where I work, there were a LOT of people standing out in front. Seems the power was out in the entire area. I kept going toward my building, sure that there was no way I'd be going to work. Lo and behold - WE had power so I got gratefully onto the elevator and rode up to my 10th floor office. Apparently one of the local power companies was having a rolling brownout - just to complicate our lives.

Do I still consider Friday the 13th lucky? You bet I do. I'm here, I'm alive, I was on time for work and it IS, after all, FRIDAY!

Have a great weekend.

My friend Joyce's husband Mark appears to be in remission. X-rays of the brain tumor reveal no new tumor growth (he was diagnosed in February with what appears to be the same type of tumor afflicting Senator Kennedy). Mark has been through a lot since the diagnosis, including surgery to remove an enormous brain tumor, plus chemo and radiation treatment. He is now on a regimen of chemo once per month for 5 days, an MRI every third month. His taste buds have started working again. When they returned from the doctor appointment on Tuesday, he expressed an intention of mowing the lawn. Joyce's response was: "Not with 2 broken legs, which is what you will have if you try!" since the doctors had made it clear that he was to avoid exceedingly hot days (which Tuesday certainly was).

To all of you who prayed for Mark and for his family's well being during this highly difficult period, know that a continuation of those prayers is still needed, since Mark isn't cured. However, his quality of life would seem to be something that has improved considerably and should continue for an appreciable period of time. Total cure, probably not in the cards, however, his health has at least improved enough that he can enjoy his life and his family for an as yet unspecified period of time and that's a blessing - and being greedy on their behalf, I hope it is for a very, very long time! So thank you for the prayers already offered and those yet to come. They are a lovely bunch of people and deserve our best wishes.

If you had no other reason for voting for John McCain, this would be reason enough:

In its third rebuke of the Bush administration's treatment of prisoners, the court ruled 5-4 that the government is violating the rights of prisoners being held indefinitely and without charges at the U.S. naval base in Cuba. The court's liberal justices were in the majority. (emphasis mine)

It is conceivable that the next President will get to nominate as many as 3 justices to SCOTUS. Do we really want the Supreme Court to be remade in the image of Barack Hussein Obama? Doesn't this nation have enough challenges?

And while we're at it: What part of "they want to kill us" do liberals not understand?

You must go to The Anchoress and read her brilliantly written, amazing smackdown of the latest filing of articles of impeachment (Dennis Kucinich, who else?) against our President. She also lists all the trifling reasons given by Joy Behar (now there's a rock scientist for you) and then shoots them down in flames one by one.

I agree with our friend The Anchoress - I think we should encourage the moonbats to do this so that once and for all, on the record, these idiots are shown for the asinine poseurs they really are!

Those "men of the people" are rumored to be planning the use of a new weapon to control protesters in Denver at the Democratic Convention:

Political activists planning protest rallies at the upcoming Democratic Convention in Denver have their stomachs in knots over a rumor about a crowd control weapon - known as the “crap cannon” - that might be unleashed against them.

Also called “Brown Note,” it is believed to be an infrasound frequency that debilitates a person by making them defecate involuntarily.

In other words, this new weapon pretty much releases the bowels of those within its reach!

My question (based on having been on the periphery of other demonstrations such as the ones being planned for Denver) is "How would you know?" I remember the 1968 protests that are apparently slated for recreation in Denver. Good hygiene was not a significant concern of those protesters, and I very much doubt much will have changed!

Barack Hussein Obama, the most singularly unqualified candidate for the presidency ever to be nominated by a major political party (assuming of course that it actually happens) appears to be "home free" for the nomination. Although I must say, BHO may have the nomination sewn up, but it was Hillary Rodham Clinton who dominated the news cycle over the weekend. HE may have won, but SHE got all the attention. This is definitely something he needs to consider, should he even have the remotest notion of putting her on the ticket.

And no, I am not racist. Barack Hussein Obama would be unqualified to serve as POTUS regardless of skin color. It's his IDEAS that are offensive, not the color of his skin. It is the lack of content in his character, not the color of his skin, that disqualifies him. It is a well known convention that you are known by the company you keep. On that basis alone (Rezko, Wright, Ayers, Dohrn, et al.), Senator Obama should hang his head in shame and scurry off the national stage sooner rather than later.

Why in the name of all that is holy do so few people seem to realize what a utter and complete humbug the man really is?

And why is it I keep hearing the theme song from "JAWS"!?

Friday, June 06, 2008

Probably not!

To anyone who honestly believes that Hillary Clinton's quest for the 2008 Presidential nomination is over, not just yet, I think!

In the first place, how dare anyone tell a candidate who has nearly 1,900 delegates that it is time for her to fold up her tent and quietly disappear? It is arrogant, it is dismissive, it is disrespectful. Furthermore, the Democratic Convention isn't until August - and a lot can happen in the interval - especially when the Clintons are involved. I fully intend to wait quietly for whatever disaster the Clintons are planning to drop on Obama and company in late July, early August.

I'm sure that Hillary and Bill will appear to go dormant, at least for a short while. But I still believe that somehow, some way, this saga isn't entirely over.

If, in fact, Barack Hussein Obama is the nominee of the Democratic Party, I sincerely hope that he isn't stupid enough to select Hillary Rodham Clinton as his running mate. I see no "up" side for her either. Should she accept the #2 spot on the ticket, and should (as is likely) Obama lose the general election, she goes down with him and it's a permanent disaster. If she isn't on the ticket, she's good to go in 2012, because even if Obama were to win (which I still say is unlikely to happen), he would be such an incredible disaster as president that he would be unable to secure a second term - leaving the door wide open for her to make a second try.

Think about it: Senator Obama is the presumptive nominee as of close of business on Tuesday. Who is getting all the media coverage? Senator Clinton, of course. No, folks, this thing isn't anywhere near over!

After experiencing a series of tornados, massive thunderstorms, power outages and all around destruction and mayhem last night (in Stafford, Virginia), my ability to come up with a decent post for today is less than zero. Sam the Wonder Cat and I are pretty doggone tired, but also fortunate since there was very little damage to our cozy little home, despite an anxious night with no phone service and no electrical power. All is now restored and I am getting through the day here at work as best I can - until I can go home tonight and get some rest!

However, Laura Lee at the Wide Awake Cafe has an excellent analysis of Obama's acceptance speech that is well worth reading.

So without further ado, here it it.

(Or Does He?)

My question is: Why are Pelosi, Reid and “Mr. Temperate” Howard Dean so fervent about setting a Friday, June 6th deadline for “superdelegates” to declare themselves. What’s up with that? Could there be some truth to the rumors that there is a tape in existence that has Michelle Obama making some (even more) offensive comments that include the word “whitey”? Wonder how much it cost Hillary to get her hands on that little gem! If, in fact, it's true. And once those superdelegates have said they will vote for Obama, what is to prevent them from changing their minds? Inquiring me wants to know.

Why watch soap operas (sorry, daytime dramas) when you can observe the Democrats at work and play? Except of course that the soap operas are far more intelligent and well acted.

Just my opinion.

From Hillary Clinton’s standpoint, a number of things can occur over the next few days – none of them particularly good. She could withdraw from the race and put her presidential aspirations on a shelf somewhere, at least for the next 4 years or (possibly) forever.

Barack Hussein Obama appears to be poised (barring unforeseen last minute bombshells, some of which are already rumored to be imminent) to take the Democratic nomination for the presidency. He also, if God be good, will lose the election resoundingly to Senator John McCain who, while far from perfect, is demonstrably more qualified to serve as our President. Let’s just be blunt about this: Barack Hussein Obama would be Jimmy Carter redux and most of our current international and domestic problems can be laid at the feet of the first Jimmy Carter administration! We do not – repeat do not – need a do over!

Senator Obama could pick Senator Clinton as his vice presidential running mate. From his standpoint, there is absolutely no up side to that idea! First of all, throughout the campaign, Bill Clinton would be sucking the air out of every room into which he walked, never mind the incredible quantities of baggage both the Clintons carry with them and that’s just the known baggage. Knowing William Jefferson Clinton as we all do, does anyone doubt that we haven’t even scratched the sleazy surface? Secondly, it may be non p.c. to say and it may even be slightly (very slightly) unfair, but if I were Senator Obama, with Senator Clinton as my running mate, I would SLEEP in Kevlar BVDs.

The likelihood is that Senator Obama will lose – and lose big! John McCain has been dealing with arrogant pups like the Senator for many, many years and he can squash his pretensions of competence without breaking a sweat. If, as I suspect, this happens – that’s the end of Senator Obama – for good. If Hillary is his running mate, that’s the end of her as well. If, however, she gracefully declines the offer, she’s good to go for 2012 which is, due to her age, pretty much her last chance, assuming she could scratch out the nomination, which now no longer looks like it will happen in 2012 without another bruising battle. She has lost her aura of inevitability for good.

The Democrats, so-called party of the little guy, have shot themselves in the foot on many levels. First of all, the sheer length of this primary campaign has exhausted voters on all sides of the political spectrum. Put bluntly – we’re sick of y’all! Then the totalitarian dictates of the National Party in telling various state party bigwigs when the primary should be held ended up disenfranchising voters in both Florida and Michigan. Why? So demigod HoHo Dean could boost his nonexistent manliness? Horse hockey! This was the party that just a little over 7 years ago was bleating that “every vote must count” (preferably 2 or 3 times) even after it was repeatedly proven that yes, indeed, George W. Bush DID WIN the State of Florida! What hypocritical poseurs these Dems have become. This is not, I repeat NOT, the Democratic Party I grew up with. Not even close.

Another question – these “super delegates” that have been discussed so much? Why is it that they are not forced to support the candidate who won their state, at least on the first ballot. In other words, say Mrs. Clinton won a state with 60% of the vote. Shouldn’t 60% of the super delegates also be hers? And how non-representational are these super delegates anyway? Sounds like totalitarian elitism to me.

I have long believed and frequently opined that for this country’s health, both national political parties should be vibrant, healthy and, above all, inclusive of all citizens of this nation. This really is no longer the case. George Soros and his ilk have hijacked the Democratic Party, despite being a real (but very noisy and well financed) minority. Nobody seems to be worried about this, but I honestly believe that we should all be concerned. George Soros wants to achieve by stealth and manipulation that which he cannot ever obtain legally. He is not a native born U.S. citizen so his only hope of achieving some sort of dictatorship over the future of this country is through surrogates – wholly owned surrogates. Is Barack Hussein Obama one of them? The remote possibility is yet another reason that Senator Obama must never be POTUS.

This purported priest, guest speaker at Barack Obama's former church in Chicago, mouthed many, if not all, of the offensive statements frequently credited to Rev. Jeremiah Wright.

First question: What is a Catholic priest doing participating in a non-Catholic worship service? We, the faithful, are forbidden to do so, how is a priest any different?

Second question: Why is the Diocese of Chicago not reining in this hoss of peculiar mindset in expeditious fashion?

To that end, I have written a letter requesting illumination from the Diocese of Chicago. Here is the address, should you'd like to do so as well - always remember to be respectful and non-combative in your tone as much as possible (although I must admit to calling the Rev. Phleger a jerk):

Very Rev. John Canary
Vicar General Archdiocese of Chicago
155 E. Superior Street
Chicago, IL 60611

FOR THE RECORD: As I do not accept Hagee's apology, neither do I accept or believe that of Rev. Phleger. You cannot unring a bell and you cannot unsay vicious and provoking words! As to Barack Hussein Obama now resigning his membership - does anyone with a functioning brain cell believe this was anything other than a purely political, utterly cynical ploy?

Yeah, me neither.

UPDATE 6/4/08: The Cardinal Archbishop of Chicago has ordered Rev. Phleger suspended pending investigation and further notice.


As I write this, Senator Kennedy is undergoing very delicate surgery at Duke University's world-class medical facility. Many things can result from this surgery, most of them not terribly good. He could lose the ability to walk or talk - or both. He very likely (depending on the location of the tumor) will lose some short term memory. He may lose his sense of taste. One thing is certain and that is that it is unlikely that the surgeons will be able to remove all of the tumor. It is probable that what my sister calls "radioactive communion wafers" will be left behind after the surgery to begin the task of killing as many of the remaining cancer cells as possible. It appears that, as in the case of my friend Joyce's husband, the brain tumor is a primary site tumor. This is not good. It means that it is highly likely (close to inevitable) that the cancer will return. To delay that occurrence, Senator Kennedy will have to undergo chemotherapy and radiation simultaneously. The famous Kennedy mane of hair is a probable casualty - at least temporarily. So what I am saying is that the Senator and his family need all of our prayers. I don't give a rat's eardrum what your political differences are with Senator Kennedy, this is an absolutely horrible disease and his prognosis is, to say the least, far from good. My best guess is that he will have, with the best of care and the best possible outcome today, between 18 months and 3 years to live, although for the sake of his family, I would hope it is more.

May God shine his light upon him, now and for the rest of his life.

UPDATE: Senator Kennedy apparently came through the surgery in great shape. A general anesthesia wasn't used and the Senator (true to form) came out of surgery talking! Good for him. Continued positive progress, Senator, with God's help and all of our prayers.
