Obama petition up at WND

Call me crazy, but if a valid birth certificate is required to suit up for the Little League World Series, seems to me your paperwork should be in order for a four-year gig as President of the United States of America.

That goofy Philip Berg's not-so-goofy idea to force the issue in court failed last month, so others have moved on to the petition phase.

Amazing what we have to go through just to get a little respect from the guy we just crowned king, isn't it?

"WASHINGTON – WND today announces the launching of an online petition designed to enlist the public's help in demanding evidence of Barack Obama's constitutional eligibility for the office of the presidency.

The electronic petition calls on all controlling legal authorities to take seriously the matter of where and when and to whom Obama was born and whether he qualifies as a "natural-born American citizen," according to Article 2, Section 1 of the Constitution."

In case you're wondering... The difference between this conspiracy theory and, say, Charlie Sheen/Rosie O'Donnell et al claiming the U.S. government perpetrated 9/11? We launched a commission and spent thousands of man hours exploring all the angles of that one, while Obama refuses to pick up the phone and make a simple call.

Just sign it. We're all screwed anyway. Might as well pretend we can do something about it.

No McConaughey as Magnum P.I.

Not happening

I was okay with the prospect, but this is good news.
"...But lo and behold I don’t have to get angry at the prospect of the star of “Surfer Dude” playing Magnum. Brian Grazer just told me it’s not happening. So it’s not going to be McConaughey, I asked? “No,” he said. “I think the idea for ‘Magnum P.I.’ is to find a counterpoint, to not try and find the new Tom Selleck but to find someone that is just so different that you go, oh my God! That guy is Magnum?!?”
Again, nothing against Matthew McConaughey, but I've already cracked this pineapple for you, Mr. Brian Grazer. Behold my stroke of casting genius.

Hey, wasn't I just saying this?

Yep. We be dumb.
"From high-school dropouts to college graduates to elected officials, Americans are "alarmingly uninformed" about the USA's history, founding principals and economy — knowledge needed to participate wisely in civic life, says a report scheduled to be released Thursday."
No wonder we'll vote for any dude in a suit and tie.

The Gay Mafia: coming soon to a business near you!

This situation is a powder keg. Businesses owned by Christians -- and Muslims -- will sooner or later by attacked by this tyrannical mob -- sorry, I mean this loving group of tolerant folks who aren't out for any special consideration under the law.

"Ummm... I don't know who that is."

I've seen links to this video and the poll results on more than one blog recently, but I only just now clicked play. Oh my.
"I like Jon Stewart."

"You get your news from 'The Daily Show'?"

"And the Colbert Report."
That about sums it up, doesn't it?

But here's the funny/sad/scary part...

For centuries, only the landed gentry could vote. Then the common man acquired a passion for well-informed political discourse and demanded his rightful place at the table. Life was good. Better than it ever had been.

So, what happens now that the common man has devolved back into gullible illiteracy? The landed gentry are back in business, baby!

What's a wallaroo, mate?

Love at Outback Steakhouse

I just found several more reasons beyond Nicole Kidman to avoid Baz Luhrmann's "Australia" like the plague.

From Garth Franklin's review:

"...Hugh Jackman's 'The Drover' is the rugged reluctant hero and the sole local white man in a community where the women are snobbish hate-fueled racists and the men are rich schemers or ugly goons who spend their time raping Aboriginal women (only implied of course). Armed with a thicker than usual accent and Jackman's natural charisma, Baz isn't afraid to play up the actor's roguish charm or physical beefcake - notably displayed in an truly gratuitous bathing scene that plays out like an ad for a gay men's body wash."
Rapist, racist white folks (what else could there be?) and Hugh Jackman making sweet, sweet slow-motion love to a luffa. Noooo thank you.

The only way I'd possibly see this is if Paul Hogan rides up on a kangaroo and makes a pair of boots out of Jackman's character before careering down a mountainside cracking a whip and yelling about barbies and billabongs and such.

Or if these guys show up.

Star Trek 90210

Found this at DHP. I have higher hopes for the film than Harry does, but this is too good to not pass along.

Wal-Mart coyote busted at the border

I've always said the fastest way to fix the illegal immigration problem would be to simultaneously throw a chain around every Wal-Mart in the country. Maybe we need to widen the dragnet to include their distribution centers?

Busted! The Fun Police name 10 worst toys

Do not taunt Happy Fun Ball

As a parent, I'm as vigilant as the next guy on what my kids play with. If I had a dime for every time I've done the Heimlich after a trip to Dollar Tree, I'd be a rich man. (Just kidding.)

But most of the toys on do-gooder outfit W.A.T.C.H.'s "most dangerous" list are just goofy.

Nunchuks that may cause "impact injuries"? Sounds like a quality item, Clark.

Shotguns that shoot real rubber pellets? The perfect uppity-sister personal defense weapon.

A giant inflatable ball you can crawl into and careen down a hill into traffic? Coolest. Toy. Ever!

Seriously though. They rail against Spider-Man roller skates, not because they're poorly made, but because...
"Street Flyers LLC recommends on the toy's packaging that children ages 3 to 6 wear helmets, wrist guards, and knee and elbow pads while using these. However, the toy only comes with knee and elbow pads."
What, no calling out the fork in our Disney Princesses place setting for not having cork eyeball protectors for the pointy end?

And Playskool's pull-along puppy is consigned to hell for having a pull string long enough to use. Should be no longer than 12 inches, they say.

That last one really bugs. My kids have a toy xylophone with a mallet tethered six inches from one end, so close you couldn't even play it. (We, of course, cut it free and replaced it with a jagged, rusty Slinky from 1947. Works like a charm and doubles as really effective nunchuks!)

Obama wins big at the Obama Music Awards

Obama... Because millions of music fans can't be wrong

Like most people with brains, I stopped watching MTV long ago. It hasn't been relevant since roughly 1987 anyway (though Kurt Loder's online film reviews remain some of the best around).

I accidentally caught a couple minutes of MTV's European Music Awards last night. Less than two, actually. I've never seen so much red, white and blue in my life.

It would have done my heart good, too, had it not been for the wall-to-wall graven images Jumbotron renderings of the god Apollo President Elect Barack Obama grinning like an idiot smiling down on it all.

Less than two minutes and we had Obama plastered on the walls, across clothing and in an acceptance speech.

Surprising? Significant? No. I just wanted to point out that these are the same people who also voted this guy "Best Act Ever."

SHOCKER! Al Gore flunkies fudge the numbers

Come on, NASA. This isn't rocket science.

Holy crap

The Utopian self delusion is just jaw dropping here.

Some may see all this as another sign of the coming Antichrist. I tend to just look and laugh. Like I do whenever I read about the League of Nations or hear Sting's "Russians." (Only bad song he's ever done, btw.)

Mainly because 1) I lean postmillennial and 2) this New!Big!Thing! has been around a long time. It's called your local Unitarian Universalist Church, where every Sunday you'll find a dwindling number of old people sitting around stinking up the joint in soggy Depends Undergarments.

Then again, if the Obamanation That Causes Desolation successfully gets Harold Koh his seat on the Supreme Court, universalism in general will be enforced at the point of a gov'ment gun...and I'll be forced to execute Operation El Guapo -- my sketchy plans to seize Costa Rica and rule as benevolent dictator for life. (Now taking advanced bribes requests for cabinet positions and beachfront property.)

Thanks to Pick for the heads up on this one.

School district issues fake Social Security numbers

I swear... Membership in a teachers union must be the sweetest free pass in the history of organized crime.
"There's no way we should be doing that kind of stuff," Ms. Olson said. "Even if your intention is good to help employees get paid, you can't use inappropriate procedures to do that."
Yeah. Probably not. It's, like, illegal and stuff.

I think I'm gonna get my credential and start running guns or moonshine or Chinese hookers or something.

Actually, I guess the education racket represents just one of the many "get out of jail free" cards offered by liberalism, huh? The end always justifies the means in a progressive cause -- another trait this religion shares with others.

Only in America, right? (Because in Mexico you get American Social Security numbers and free Viagra!)

Darpa Initiative

After microwaveable popcorn, this was inevitable I suppose. And it's about time. We were supposed to be hitting the skies Jetson-style no later than the yeeeear two-thouuuuusand!

Michael Moore makes a porno

"The shoes are Gucci. Thanks for asking."

Here we go again...
"Michael Moore's next documentary for Paramount Vantage and Overture is taking on a different issue than first stated -- it will now cover the global financial crisis says The Hollywood Reporter. The still untitled feature is said to follow an "end-of-the-empire tone" rather than the foreign policy-focused follow-up to "Fahrenheit 9/11" that was originally planned..."
Well, sure. Can't be a world-class opportunist without rolling with the headlines.
"Even Moore calls it more of a 'bookend to Roger & Me' in reference to his breakthrough debut effort nearly two decades ago..."
I'd rather call it a bookend to Michael Moore's phoned-in career, but I doubt we'll be so lucky.
"However, with the crisis changing from day to day and a renewed sense of hope thanks to Obama's election, critics are wondering if Moore's style will still hit with audiences by the time it gets released..."
Another Moore flop gives me a renewed sense of hope at least, but I think what they meant to say was critics are wondering how to make it a hit when everyone knows his tricks by now.
"Moore is rushing forward with filming at present and the movie is expected to come out as early as the Spring."
Rushing it? How long does a Michael Moore film take? I mean when you pretty much make it up as you go along anyway. Ambushing easy targets and interviewees suffering from Alzheimers requires some logistical coordination I suppose, but still. Frankly, I'm surprised this wasn't in the can two months ago.

How much you want to bet the bipartisan nature of our current mess and socialist attempts at a solution don't show up on screen? I'd link to the proof yet again, but even I'm tired of looking at it by now.

Ridley Scott's 'Monopoly' movie

Is this a joke?
Shaping a narrative out of the iconic real-estate game, Ridley Scott will direct the project and plans on giving it a futuristic sheen along the lines of his famed 1982 feature "Blade Runner."
Terry Gilliam, the Monty Python years maybe, but Ridley Scott? With a Blade Runner look??

Caviezel cast for MI5 thriller

Good to see Jim Caviezel is still getting gigs. Even before his brilliant work in Passion of the Christ made him a pariah, he was a phenomenal natural talent. If the Aramaic posed no problem, I have a feeling he can nail a British accent without breaking a sweat. I'm not exactly sure where they're going with the terrorist angle yet -- he did play yet another improbably rightwing version in Deja Vu -- but I'm up for this one so far. Because Sam Jackson as an international terrorist? Sign me up!

Cheap, safe, mini nuclear reactors now on sale

"Where we're going, we don't need any roads."

This is incredible...

"Nuclear power plants smaller than a garden shed and able to power 20,000 homes will be on sale within five years, say scientists at Los Alamos, the US government laboratory which developed the first atomic bomb..."

Nor do they pose a threat to anyone.

"...The miniature reactors will be factory-sealed, contain no weapons-grade material, have no moving parts and will be nearly impossible to steal because they will be encased in concrete and buried underground. ...

'You could never have a Chernobyl-type event - there are no moving parts,' said Deal. 'You would need nation-state resources in order to enrich our uranium. Temperature-wise it's too hot to handle. It would be like stealing a barbecue with your bare hands.' "
I can guarantee we'll be the last modern nation on the planet to get on board with this given our new "progressive" government. Because Al Gore is in the driver's seat now. Driving pantsless, an open container of alcohol between his knees, right down the middle of the road. Just because he can.

Man arrested for wearing McCain shirt

I discovered this less than a minute after posting the last one. No joke.

Not much footage here. Maybe the guy was drunk. (Doesn't look like it.) Maybe he had it coming. (No evidence here.) The cameraman wasn't drunk, though, and clearly was in the best position to know what was going down. Either way, it's the fanaticism of the mob that's disturbing.

Via Dirty Harry's Place.

Obama's caesar salad days?

Easy there, Octavius! We were only kidding!

Between Obama's homemade "Office of the President-Elect" logo to this word he intends to rule by decree immediately, I'm getting more nervous by the day.

On the other hand, I was kind of afraid all that Audacity of Hype would cool to a temperature safe enough for him to skate by as just another politician, albeit a leftist one. Dispensing with parliament from the get-go, though, would indicate otherwise.

Sure, many presidents have used them, but they tend to be few and relegated to back-burner issues -- for the very fact most presidents are humble (or shrewd) enough to leave the biggies to national debate and popular vote. Bush's ban on abortion-linked overseas funding wasn't exactly a ban on abortion. Yet Obama is fixin' to halt offshore drilling and approve stem cell research with the wave of a pen, two major issues on which debate is ongoing and the country is very much divided??

More power to you, Mr. President Elect. (Not literally.)

Keep this stuff up, and we just might have a nice little popular uprising in time to take back some seats in 2010 with minimal effort.

Can we actually have another 1996 just down the road? Yes! We! Can!

Drunken UK reporter lands on YouTube

Coming to America as a mainstream media reporter to shill for Barack Obama's campaign: one week's pay.

Alcohol to celebrate Obama's victory: $43.

Becoming a YouTube sensation for filing a plagiarized news report on Obama's victory as you drunkenly cuss out your boss from the gutter: priceless.

(Part II here.)

Office of the President Elect??

I can't wait to see the Mini Oval Office he's reportedly working from.

No ego here. Noooo...

I'm guessing if our pres-to-be had been in the Crimean War, he would've been one of those guys custom designing his own uniform with lots of peacock feathers, gold braiding and oversized epaulets. Also reminds me of that episode of "The Office" where Dwight thought he'd been promoted to Micheal's job and started rearranging the corner office with Michael's feet still up on his desk.

Anyway, did you miss the big press conference? Here's the short version:

"Ah...we need to ensure plenty of unemployment is...ah...available to average Americans. Ah... Speaker of the House Pelosi's stimulus package sounds pretty good. Ah...uh... I hope the President makes the right choices... Uh.... Iran must allowed to gain nuclear weapons. Thank you."

Also a lot of reporters addressing him as "Mr. President Elect," at least twice directly, as in "President Elect, would you say..."

I watched it on CNBC, where they had the DOW ticker up as always onscreen as he spoke. Prior to the speech, in anticipation of big things following Obama's meeting all morning with about 137 economic advisers, we had reached the day's high.

As he spoke? Down, down, dowwwwn. (I'm kicking myself. Tried to grab some QQQQ puts just before he took the stage, then chickened out.) Went back up by closing, though.

Not that market direction means anything these days, but it clearly expected more.

Oh, and have you seen the quote on President Elect's website? ( no less.)

"Today we begin in earnest the work of making sure that the world we leave our children is just a little bit better than the one we inhabit today."
-- President-Elect Barack Obama

"Just a little bit better"? Really aiming for the sky there, Mr. The One. What happened to all that "slow the rise of the oceans" talk?

Let 'em fail?

There's been a fascinating debate on CNBC's Fast Money lately.

Since we're well down the road to soft socialism with these bailouts already, what should happen next to the auto makers?

On the one hand, if GM and Ford fail, the number of jobs lost could bring about the big bad "Great Depression II" everybody's been talking about. On the other hand -- as conservatives like Jeff Macke have (ironically) argued -- since we've already launched this socialist Utopian dream of propping up an economy that really needs to fail (because you just can't artificially maintain a bubble forever), better to let them fail and give this money directly to the people effected.

Hard to deny the logic here in our illogical times.

Today's LinkedIn poll on CNBC blew the talking heads away, finding that 70 percent of respondents would prefer to watch the big three die and let things take their natural course, rather than continue the charade.

As Businessweek senior writer Robin Farzad said today on Power Lunch, "We have equal protection under the Constitution. Why should taxpayers be on the hook for pensions [for people in one industry], for the sins of Roger Smith committed 10 years ago?"

So true. The amount of money lost by individual investors like you and me is in the bazillions. We all have to own our mistakes as traders. Small, medium and large business are dropping like flies, too. As far as I'm concerned, that gives us the right to demand corporations suffer the same fate.

Then again, "Great Depression II" doesn't sound like a whole lot of fun either. Or is it inevitable regardless of what we do?

All I know is we'll get through this, and we'll have learned our lessons. The next system to come along will be a more honest, transparent way of doing things as a result. Which is fine by me. As a Christian capitalist, I believe in the biblical mandate for government that enforces just weights and measures -- something we've not had since the mid-1990s at least.

Voter turnout UNCHANGED from 2004!

Given some of the definite demographic changes this year, though, the clear implication is that...

“A downturn in the number and percentage of Republican voters going to the polls seemed to be the primary explanation for the lower than predicted turnout,” the report said. Compared to 2004, Republican turnout declined by 1.3 percentage points to 28.7 percent, while Democratic turnout increased by 2.6 points from 28.7 percent in 2004 to 31.3 percent in 2008."

Like I said, the GOP has dodged a bullet for years. We need to win some serious hearts and minds at home...or find a way to lull the brain dead and the slackers back to sleep.

Also like we said, Bob Dole II -- er, John McCain -- was the worst possible candidate to field against a guy like Barack Obama.

So this is what happened!

Why am I just hearing about this guy? He'd totally get my vote.

Old, Grizzled Third-Party Candidate May Steal Support From McCain

Obama minions at a loss for direction

Obama Win Causes Obsessive Supporters To Realize How Empty Their Lives Are

He has arrived

Alright, Superman. You've promised golden streets and candy rainbows. You've got all the power on Capitol Hill. Now make with the salvation.

Cheap college degrees, quality health care for all, new heights of individual and national prosperity -- all with not a penny in higher taxes for anyone under $250,000 -- are at the top of the list. (Oh, we're keeping a list. This is the Internet age, baby.)

Not that taxing one man and not another is justice by any moral standard, but whatever. I just want to see you pull it off while eliminating that deficit you've vowed to break with your bare hands.

Louis Farrakhan believes in you. Billions of well-informed young people believe in you. I'm willing to give you a shot.

The stock market bottomed Oct. 10, though, so don't even think of taking credit for that. The rising tides began to slow some time ago, too.

Do I share your joy in making history? Nah. Race isn't a factor for me, any more than I would have been excited for Sarah Palin because she's a woman. See, I knew my country was capable of such things a long time ago.

I have to admit, though, for the first time in my adult life, I'm honesty glad I've never achieved greatness in life. The sad part is...I just woke up in a country where I'm honestly glad I've never achieved greatness in life.

Toast II

I feel better this morning. Cleaner. More free. Rush Limbaugh just confirmed it for me:

"Conservatism didn't lose last night. Conservatism wasn't on the ballot. It hasn't been in the Republican Party since the Bush Administration eviscerated it in 2001."

Today is a brand new day.

Tuesday, November 4, 2008


The GOP is dead. Deader than the Democrats a few cycles ago. Like a baseball team that banks on aging, single-season free agents, we've completely neglected our farm system for too long.

Seriously. Who's in charge now? Where is our future? Maybe Sarah Palin? She has the drive, the "it" factor and a guaranteed four years to get up to speed. Bobby Jindal is another name that could excite.

Other than that, there's just no one out there.

Let's be honest. 9/11 saved the Republican party, as it, by the grace of God and its own hawkish virtues, then saved the Republic from 9/11's perpetrators. But we've dodged a bullet for decades, even before we started betraying the memory of Ronald Reagan, oh, long about 1998.

Complete now is the demographic shift -- encouraged by far-sighted Democrats -- effected by the influx of millions of Latinos who, God bless 'em, arrive knowing only the political tradition of "vote for the man promising the most stuff." As CNN explored at length tonight.

That fact alone has put a growing number of states out of reach, effectively eliminating conservative political philosophy as a force going forward, unless their children can be taught a better way at school. But since public education and the pervasive "culture of cool" have already rewired the synapses of a generation to prize sexy over substance of any kind, well... Not a pretty picture.

That said, I refuse to curl up under a park bench with a bottle of cheap scotch. At least beyond tonight.

People have been clamoring for a third party forever, right? This may be as close as we're ever gonna get. The GOP is a broken brand, but we still own the real estate. The command structure is still in place. Now we just need a commander with a heart for what matters and the guts to pull the trigger.

More Black Panthers video

These are a couple of sorry-ass-looking Black Panthers, but it's the thought that counts.

We are still in America, right? Because except for the woman on the cell phone, this all looks a lot like Kenya did a few months ago to me.

FOUND: Obama's REAL birth certificate!

Well this is good enough for me.

Seriously though, I had to show my birth certificate to play pee wee football. Too much to ask for the next leader of the free world?

If Iraqis could vote

They can actually, thanks to George W. Bush.

But if they could vote in our election...? It wouldn't be for the guy with "Hussein" in his name. The guy who wanted to abandon them and still won't admit he was wrong. The guy running with the guy who wanted to slice their country into three mini-countries. The guy who--

Ah, screw it. The die is cast. Let history sort it out like it did for Ronald Reagan.

Gettin' out the vote!

Man, the Obama folks are serious about this motor-voter thing. Looks like they've even got Bill Ayers running round trips.

Death threats against city leaders over Prop 8

How it used to be

We've had a few laughs about the violence from the Left this election cycle. To my knowledge, it's really unprecedented. And given the levels it's reaching, I probably shouldn't be laughing.

I linked to this earlier today, but as it happened in Fresno, a place we once lived and still love, it shouldn't get lost in the shuffle.
"...The caller was Georgeanne White, chief of staff for Fresno Mayor Alan Autry. Someone opposing California’s Proposition 8, White said, had just issued a pair of email death threats. One was directed at Autry, the other at [local pastor] Franklin, both of whom had spoken on Sunday at city hall in support of Proposition 8, which would restore traditional marriage as the only kind recognized in the state.

“Is the threat serious?” Franklin asked White on the phone.

Yes, she said—and specific. The email explained exactly how the sender intended to dispatch the two men."
Click here for the full story.

One of the worst aspects of the triumph of evil this election cycle is the willing participation of Christians who don't know any better. Largely, I'm convinced, because the vast majority of churches and pastors refuse speak out from the pulpit on the biblical imperatives at stake -- beyond the safe "be sure to vote, folks, however you lean!"

That's unconscionable. They should. Up to and including proactively urging their people to vote one way or the other as is their constitutional right and biblical duty on issues like this.

Church leaders used to speak out. They used to welcome abuse, even jail time for speaking to the world around them. Today, the vague threat of losing "tax exempt status" is a welcome sapling to hide behind. As is the assumption, perhaps, that voting will follow naturally the changed heart. Unfortunately, that's not the way it works, because the issues are nuanced, complicated, begging for interpretation by spiritual leaders.

God bless true leaders like Franklin and Alan Autry. God bless Fresno, where, I can tell you from experience, this kind of leadership courage happens all the time.

Fear not!

The Black Panthers are here!

Philly muscles out Republican workers again

Tyrants to the left of us, tyrants to the...well, pretty much only to the left of us.

I still haven't forgiven, nor will I forget, my sign. (Sniff...)

Happy November 4!

Frank Gaffney on Obama's suicidal tendencies

Wow... From the man's own mouth. I knew it was bad, but I didn't know it was this bad.

Did eight years of Clinton downsizing our military and intelligence capabilities teach us nothing? Say, right around Sept. 11, 2001?

The technological advantage is all we've got, really. And Obama wants to reverse this?

It's go time, people. We need to stop this poser now.

Biden Quote of the Day

Yeah. Sarah Palin is the dumb one.

Not sure how I missed this one. (Heck, until they gagged him the past couple weeks, the pearls were falling so fast and furious a few were bound to get by me.)

The one good thing about Obie winning this thing? A guaranteed four years of the accidental comedy stylings of Joe Biden.

Better late than never...or not

If McCain goes down in flames in a few short hours, I firmly believe he has no one but himself to blame. In no small part for not getting this message out. Luckily, like me, other people have been trying...

Imagine if Bush had...

This American Spectator reader's comments have been getting attention elsewhere, and they're too good to not post here as well.

"...Bush had given a speech. Just one speech at the controversial university [Bob Jones U], but that was enough for the press to join him at Jones’ hip. Thus, the press piled on:

Feb 27, 2000 – Los Angeles Times - “Bush is wishing he'd never set foot on the Bob Jones campus”
Feb 28, 2000 – BusinessWeek - “Bush received an enthusiastic response at Bob Jones U.”
Feb 28, 2000 – Washington Post - “Bush Caters to the Bigotry of Bob Jones”
Feb 29, 2000 – International Herald Tribune - “criticized Mr. Bush for speaking at Bob Jones University,”
Mar 4, 2000 – Seattle Post-Intelligencer - “do we want the ideals of Jerry Falwell, Pat Robertson and Bob Jones?”
Mar 4, 2000 – Dallas Morning News - “a letter of regret for visiting Bob Jones University”
Mar 4, 2000 – Dayton Daily News - “Gerald Ford says he would not have spoken at Bob Jones”
Mar 5, 2000 - Contra Costa - "The definition of George Bush's compassionate conservative is Bob Jones III ...
Mar 5, 2000 – Los Angeles Times - “aggrieved over Bush's visit to Bob Jones University”
Mar 5, 2000 – Miami Herald - “Bush was insensitive to Catholics by visiting Bob Jones University.”
Mar 5, 2000 – Chicago Sun-Times - “criticism of Bush for his visit to anti-Catholic Bob Jones University”
Mar 5, 2000 – Maureen Dowd- “In South Carolina, former Gov. David Beasley … gave a bear hug to Bob Jones Bush.”
Mar 6, 2000 – Guardian Unlimited - “Mr Bush had to repair the damage done by his appearance at the Bob Jones university”
Mar 6, 2000 – Philadelphia Daily News - “the Bob Jones affair”

(Craig goes on at some length in this vein and then adds . . .)

Now imagine if Bush hadn’t just given a speech, but also…

• Was an active member of the church for 20-years
• Was married by Bob Jones
• Had his children baptized by Bob Jones
• Gave tens-of-thousands to the church
• Titled a book after one of Jones’ sermons
• Had regularly listened to Jones’ sermons on tape while at grad school
• Had appointed Jones to his campaign
• Funded his radical education activities thru foundation funds
• Claimed Jones as his spiritual mentor

…and then claimed he was “only vaguely aware of Bob Jones University's policies and past”? The MSM hypocrisy is breathtaking."

But no, we're just a bunch of racists desperate to keep a black man out of the White House by manufacturing his connections to PLO radicals, Pentagon bombers and (community) organized voter fraud.

Obama auntie poor, illegal, and not on nephew's radar

DH: "And I'm supposed to believe Obama will give a damn about me?"

I was going to update my earlier post on this, but Dirty Harry beat me to it.

Preach it, brother.

Preach. It.
