CNN debate format effectively squelched any chance for statesmanship

In this sound bite world of text messages, 140 character or less tweets, and short attention spans, political statesmanship may become a lost art. This week CNN produced a presidential debate that discouraged eloquence and elaboration. The 30 second time limited response more closely resembled a speed dating session. It was hard to tell if John King was suffering from Tourette’s, ADHD or both.

This format was designed to stifle the impact of the candidates and prevent true statesmanship from blossoming. By limiting and minimizing their responses, CNN effectively neutered the Republican hopefuls.

Watch this version of Patrick Henry’s famous oration by actor Dean Jones. It is a fairly brief and extremely remarkable speech of just under 3 minutes but just imagine how unremarkable it would have been had John King been there to grunt him to a halt at the 30 second mark.

 

Andrew Breitbart Exposes MSM Double Standard

Andrew Breitbart is on the circuit promoting his new book “Righteous Indignation”. In the book Breitbart mentions that while attending college, he consumed more than a little alcohol. Somehow this less than shocking revelation prompted host Peter Slen to ask Breitbart about his current relationship with alcohol. Breitbart, quite taken by the question rightly challenges the host.  Slen claims it is a fair question since Breitbart mentioned it in his book to which Breitbart asks “I graduated  20 years ago and I’m admitting to my flaws the way that Barack Obama admitted that he did cocaine when he was in college, would you ask Barack Obama in an interview with him, would it be one of the ten questions you ask him; what is your current relationship with cocaine?”

Black Democrat “steps in it” then expects a hispanic to clean it up.

South Carolina State Senator, Robert Ford D-SC exercised his freedom of speech today on the Statehouse floor.  But the Senator, who ran unsuccessfully for Governor last year, may have exceeded the “extended” boundaries that Democrats can usually expect to enjoy.  While discussing the Palmetto State’s legislative efforts to pass an aggressive, tougher state immigration policy, akin to the “controversial” Arizona law passed last year, “Sen. Ford complained such a position would hurt South Carolina because blacks and whites don’t work as hard as Hispanics.” (Source: Yahoo News)

These comments elicited what Yahoo termed a “smattering of nervous laughter”.  The kind of nervous laughter usually reserved for anything that comes out of Jake Knotts’ mouth, I might add.   But for those who thought that the good Senator may have misspoke, Ford went on, offering THIS by way of an  historical foundation to his shaky allegation,  ” once his ancestors were freed from slavery, he said, they didn’t want to do any more hard work, so they were replaced by Chinese and Japanese.”  Can’t you just picture this phrase etched on the back of a grainy old photograph or one of the Senator’s treasured heirlooms?  Maybe pressed into a book with a lock of a Senator Ford’s baby hair?  I can’t.

Well, that MIGHT explain Nissan and Toyota springing from the “biblical loins” of the UAW, but I’m not sure about further historical significance.    Since Chris Matthews or Ed Schultz wouldn’t be caught DEAD in South Carolina, Sen. Ford was on his own. “The brothers are going to find ways to take a break.  Ever since this country was built, we’ve had somebody do the work for us”, said Ford.  For those playing the Good ‘Ol Boys Network board game at HOME, “brothers” is African-American Democrat Slang for “constituents.”   Deaf to his Democrat “brothers” on the floor, begging him to yield his remaining time, Sen. Ford went from bad to worse, detailing another personal story about “four workers in the country illegally (who) showed up on his lawn and finished mowing, edging and other work in 30 minutes that would take others much longer, and only wanted $10 for the job.”   This puts an odd twist on the Democrat devotion to minimum wage reform.

If you’re having difficulty absorbing just the dizzying pace of this story,   so was state GOP chairman, Joel Sawyer who called Ford’s comments, “abhorrent and incredibly offensive” but also wanted the number of the aforementioned Yard Service.   Sawyer also positively identified the racist tone of these remarks.

But in flexing his African American extended freedom of speech rights in America, Senator Ford forcefully blunted any criticism that might follow his address today, urging his colleagues to “get over it” and “not take things so seriously.”   Bravo, Senator. 

The NAACP summed up Ford’s comments as an “unfortunate choice of words.”  This was the expected call for restraint NEVER extended to Republicans.   Just coming within six degrees of implying something like this can cost a Republican his livelihood.   The double-standard goes on in America.  Look for absolutely no repercussions from this. 

Except one, this “tougher, more aggressive, Arizona-style Immigration bill” WILL pass in South Carolina.  Despite the lowly SATs, the preponderance of Dead-Beat Dads, junkie-Moms, “Lizard-Man” sightings, and blind NASCAR devotion in the Palmetto State, I’m still proud to call this state my home.    We are still a conservative state at heart. Despite an overabundance of Senator Fords in South Carolina politics, this is STILL a great place to live. 

You Yankees, eat your heart out.   From the Batcave, this is your Garnet n Black Gadfly on the Wall.

Could this finally touch criticism of Islam from Left?

http://www.nypost.com/p/news/international/man_worst_fiends_in_dog_plot_1h93g9Om3R6t0AGAR7XOtI

Could THIS be the straw that broke the camel’s back? 

The Left has made it clear that the only religions that deserve respect are the ones that show no respect or preach hatred of the United States.  Lately, that is Radical Islam.  Coming in a distant second:  The Black Separatist Theology as practiced by Rev. Wright.   It’s probably not a coincidence that our President has practiced BOTH of these religions.  Stonings, public floggings, car bombs, bombs strapped to children, “God-Damning America”, dismembering, disfiguring and imprisoning women are brushed aside and disregarded like “Lewinskies” in the Oval Office. 

“Can’t we just all move on?” 

“Publically stoning a woman for driving a car IS a PRIVATE matter”, we’re told.   

But as the New York Post reveals, Al Qaeda may have FINALLY went too far.  Sewing bombs to the insides of dogs!  This transcends devious and sinister, runs a bee-line past cruel and unusual, and races to the Megalamaniacal like an art critic to a wine and cheese.   Will this finally get Maureen Dowd to put down Vanity Fair and actually CRITICIZE Al Qaeda’s behavior?

Probably not, because that would mean lifting their Get Smart influenced “Cone of Silence” from around Lord and Lady Obama.  With the troop withdrawl’s in Iraq, the altering of the rules of engagement, and the recurring (mysterious) exclusion of “the Taliban” whenever speaking about the Ware on Terro, it’s apparent that the President’s strategy can be summed up with the old axiom:   The Best Offense is to not be offensive.  Questioning or criticizing this only serves to make it more obvious that George W. Bush was right about the War on Terror.  The Democrats just needed a poltical volleyball in 2003, so they had to turn common sense inside out. 

“We support the troops, but not the war”.  

See?  Perfect sense.  

No sense rehashing history that as of last Tuesday is ALSO history.    But in conclusion, one has to ask:  Will PETA speak out about the use of animals as canine bombs by Al Qaeda? 

C’mon, we all know the answer to that.

Update from Joe Miller’s Camp

Here is the latest on the dispicable actions of the local media in Alaska from Republican Senatorial Candidate Joe Miller;

Here’s what happened:

It appears that a KTVA reporter for the local CBS affiliate failed to completely end a phone call with Randy and recorded part of a conversation that allegedly seeks ways to KTVA reporters are heard discussing ways to “find” a “child molester” who is involved with the campaign.

“You have to find that one person,” says the male reporter, to laughter in the news room. The reporters at KTVA then discuss creating a “Rand Paul” incident at the then upcoming Miller Rally (held on October 28, 2010) and hoping for violence so that they can “send out a tweet” and “Facebook” that “Miller got punched” at the rally.

When confronted, KTVA acknowledged that the message was inadvertently left by a member of the TV station staff, but denied that the station was brainstorming ways to create negative news stories about my team. The general manager claims that the news station staff was reviewing potential, “what-if” scenarios, discussing the likelihood of events at the rally and how KTVA might logistically disseminate any breaking news.”

B-b-b-but it’s his fault … he started it…..

With thanks to the unknown author, whomever he or she may be….

The  Washington  Post babbled again today about Obama inheriting a huge deficit from Bush. Amazingly enough, a lot of people swallow this nonsense.
So once more, a short civics lesson.  

Budgets do not come from the White House. They come from Congress and the party that controlled Congress since January 2007 is the Democratic Party.

Furthermore, the Democrats controlled the budget process for FY 2008 and FY 2009 as well as FY 2010 and FY 2011.

In that first year, they had to contend with George Bush, which caused them to compromise on spending, when Bush somewhat belatedly got tough on spending increases.

For FY 2009 though, Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid bypassed George Bush entirely, passing continuing resolutions to keep government running until Barack Obama could take office. At that time, they passed a massive omnibus spending bill to complete the FY 2009 budgets.

And where was Barack Obama during this time? He was a member of that very Congress that passed all of these massive spending bills, and he signed the omnibus bill as President to complete FY 2009.

If the Democrats inherited any deficit, it was the FY 2007 deficit, the last of the Republican budgets. That deficit was the lowest in five years, and the fourth straight decline in deficit spending. After that, Democrats in Congress took control of spending, and that includes Barack Obama, who voted for the budgets.

  If Obama inherited anything, he inherited it from himself.

 

 

In a nutshell,  what Obama is saying is I inherited a deficit that I voted for and then I voted to expand that deficit four-fold since January 20th.

 

 

The Moderates of the Rally to Restore (In)Sanity

ReasonTV Captures the Spirit of the Rally to Restore (In)Sanity . I have a feeling many of them would have been dressed the same, even if it was not the day before Halloween. I was in D.C. for another event and got stuck in D.C. traffic at the same time this Rally ended. I knew from the freak show on the streets that for some, this was just another opportunity for them to sport their Halloween costumes and this video confirmed it. I am impressed by their eloquence and their ability to articulate their points of view.

I watched the event on C-SPAN. It was two  hours of painfully unfunny schtick, but in addition to the signs below, caught a few on the streets of DC including “Real Americans Eat Bald Eagle Eggs” and “I’m Not A Climate Scientist So I Don’t Refute What They Say”. Guess he missed the story about Hal Lewis’ resignation from The American Physical Society. While watching the event on C-SPAN, caught “Pimp My God” among others. Don’t know if I have the stomach to watch it again to capture the others.

What a nice way to spend a lovely fall afternoon with your daughter.  Her Dad’s sign should say “Moderate Women are Tepid”. That would be more accurate.

Waiting for Nancy’s outcry about the Nazi references…..

Hmmm – reckon this fellow knows what NAMBLA is? Someone said that it’s some kind of Daily Show running joke. Seems like they would have picked something that didn’t reference pedophelia.

 

Any guesses on what in the world the sign on the left means? Dry Hump your Party? Someone clearly needs some real lovin’.

 

I would submit to these three buffoons that “Tea Baggers” are paying more taxes than they are. As a matter of fact, I would bet on it.

 

Are they brothers?

 

This is a flag made of destroyed American Flags – which pretty much says it all about this crowd of malcontents.

 

 What does this mean?           

                                                                              

Oh, Nancy, we’re still waiting……

Oh great, now every trip to Kroger will be like going to Costco

 

The smaller print says, “Just kill me in that case”. OK   But in a nice way, of course       

And they discerned this how?

SEIU, Tides Foundation, George Soros…… Don’t confuse them with the facts though

   

 

                                                                             

I detect a theme here…. The following two should get together.
