CYBTP? - Joy Behar

Michelle Malkin's got it covered. Video over at Hot Air.

On the view this morning, Joy Behar - in response to a story about Sen. Tim Johnson's apparent stroke - suggested that the stroke might be "man-made".

You read it right. Man-made. Stroke.




When I saw this one, I was tempted to laugh until my sides hurt. But I decided to put the energy into writing this post, instead.

From the AP: "Dems to Wipe Out Pet Projects in Bills"

There will be no congressional earmarks," Rep. David Obey, D-Wis., and Sen. Robert Byrd, D-W.Va., said Monday in a statement announcing their plans, which were quickly endorsed by incoming Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., and soon-to-be Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D- Nev.
As soon as I read the line above, I quickly remembered a favorite site of mine called Porkbusters.com. To be specific, I recalled their "Hall of Shame" page, which features none other than You-Know-Who as the Porkbusters recipient of their "Lifetime Achievement Award:

In his over forty-eight years (!) in the United States Senate, Senator Byrd has achieved a pork record that is second to none. From the Robert C. Byrd Expressway to the Robert C. Byrd Freeway; the Robert C. Byrd Institute to the Robert C. Byrd Federal Building (both of them), Senator Byrd has truly left his mark on West Virginia --- and the federal budget. (And let us not overlook the proposed Robert C. Byrd rooms in the U.S. Capitol.) It would be appropriate to erect some kind of monument to his century-spanning resume --- except that he already did so himself.

You know, it's sad when you see politicians play politics at the expense of hypocrisy. It's another thing entirely to see them play politics so stupidly. In fact, it's actually quite funny...once you get past the whole "pathetic" part of the story.


Did You Get the Memo? Hopefully Our Soldiers Haven't...

Heard about this one on Drudge earlier this evening. Apparently, Frank Rich (of the New York Times - put on that "surprise" face) has taken it upon himself to declare our defeat in Iraq. That's right: Frank says we've already lost. Hope is gone.

"The longer we pretend that we have not lost there, the more we risk losing other wars we still may salvage, starting with Afghanistan."

Alert the President. Splash it on the Iraqi newspapers. Hell...get word to Osama bin Laden: The United States has lost.

I mean, what else could Mr. Rich be looking to do with this story, other than bolster our enemies and demoralize our nation even further? I'm sure the journalist would simply say that he is "stating the obvious" or "reporting the truth". But sometimes "truth" just isn't what it seems to be.

By my last estimate, we still have thousands of troops on the ground in Iraq. In the town of Ramadi, we're killing terrorists at a ratio of around 75:1, according to a fantastic (fact-based, first-hand experience) article by Michael Fumento. The number of successes cannot even be counted. Of course, the number of failures is unacceptable. But to simply declare defeat in the midst of struggle as important as Iraq is not only reprehensible. It is unpatriotic, it is pathetic, it is unprofessional, and it is - to put it simply - sad.

Thank God this man wasn't born in time to predict our defeat in WWII, because we now know that he would have, if he'd had the chance.


Extreme Radical Keith Olbermann Slams "Extreme Radicals"

I knew there was a reason I never watch this guy.

Keith Olbermann is famous for "shedding light" on the "extremist right wing" of our country. Of course, somebody so blind to his hatred for the "Right" would have a very hard time seeing his own "extremism"...although it's exceedingly apparent to anyone watching. Although, that's not very many people.

On tonight's episode of Countdown With Keith Olbermann, the host decided to seek the wisdom of Jonathan Alter, senior editor of Newsweek Magazine. Alter joined Olbermann to expose the Right's "extreme" reaction to the ISG's newly-issued report on the future of Iraq.

Keith brought up the usual Rush Limbaugh bashing, Bill O'Reilly distorting, and general demonization of anyone who lies to the right of Hugo Chavez. He was obviously in shock that ANYONE would take the ISG's recommendations as anything less than The Bible. If you do, according to Keith (and Jonathan), you are "extremist", "radical", "blind", "out of touch", and so on. (Quotes are summations - not direct quotes)

In fact, I do not have the transcripts from the show at the moment, but the direct quotes would really say no more than what I mentioned above. There was also the typical snide remark about Fox News, specifically the morning show "Fox & Friends".

I could take the time to express my opinions on the reason behind Keith's Fox News bashing...but I think this (PDF) explains it a whole lot better than I could. But I could be wrong. I could be completely wrong.

If I get the initiative to research the transcript of this show, look for updates soon. If not, just take my word for it. ;-)


When Fiction Becomes Prediction

I live in the great state of New York. Sure it's a blue state, but it's really more of a blue city, surrounded by mostly red counties. Regardless, New York is notoriously liberal. Right up there next to San Fransisco, CA.

That's why I was far from surprised when I heard that NYC Mayor Mike Bloomberg was pushing for a trans-fat ban in the Big Apple. Mr. Bloomberg is about as much of a Republican as is John McCain. Translation: he's a liberal in conservative clothing. But even with such a reputation, I was hopeful that something as incrediblly ludicrous as a "trans-fat ban" would never be taken seriously in the NYC governing ranks.

I really should have known better.

The NYC Board of Health voted on Tuesday to ban Trans Fats in city's restaurants, much to the dismay of almost everyone who lives and eats in New York City.

Of course, the Board believes that they are "saving lives" with this vote. They believe that it is their "responsibility". They are hoping to set an example for the rest of the country to eventually "catch up to".

I'm sure George Orwell would be quite proud.


Back to Basics...

This site was originally created to expose the true mindset of liberals in this country - and around the world. Tonight, I'll be going "back to basics" for a bit, and highlight a couple of these loons.

Apparently, a couple (of hippies) living together over in San Fransisco have decided to launch an enormous protest against the war. "So what?", you may ask. There's nothing odd about that. It's what hippies do.

But this time it's different. This time, they actually might change the world forever...completely eradicate war. It's incredible...but they just might do it!

No, they aren't staging a massive human shield operation in front of terrorist hideouts (though I'm sure they would, if they could)...and they're not gathering petitions of people all over the world to end the war in Iraq. Instead, they have announced the Global Orgasm for Peace. Yup - you read that right.

According to Paul Reffell, 55, one of the two leaders of the movement:

“The orgasm gives out an incredible feeling of peace during it and after it. Your mind is like a blank. It's like a meditative state. And mass meditations have been shown to make a change.”

My favorite commentary of the day on this story comes from none other than Rush Limbaugh. He even saved the couple some time, and suggested a "theme song" for the event...

...Though I'm sure it's not quite what The Beatles had in mind when they penned "Come Together".

Stanley Crouch: "Wake Up!"

I will not stand up here, as a white person, and claim to understand black culture. To do so would be empty, misguided, and simply stupid.

But what I can understand is the way black culture is presented to me in the media - and in the people I see around me. It's far too often that I see black culture represented as dirty, sexual, money-hungry, angry, sexual, murderous, lawless, immoral, and soulless. And did I mention sexual?

With the music that is coming out of black culture today, it's not hard to see why black youth has become so ingrained with the above characteristics. And before you begin to throw the "racist" tagline at me, please understand that we white people - just like every single other race on the planet - have our idiots, our immoral role models, and our general scum of the earth. I am fully aware of - and 100% agree with - that. ;-)

But I am honestly sick and tired of black culture being riddled with every negative characteristic known to man, at the hands of the very youth who - if only guided properly - could turn everything around.

Stanley Crouch has written an article that is absolutely incredible - and really nails the problem on the head. He writes:

Last week, I was in a studio in midtown where a popular program for black youths was being filmed. I found myself surrounded by black men, ages 18 to 35, and I was appalled.

As a father with a daughter nearly 30 years old who has never been close to marrying anyone, I was once more struck by what my offspring describes as "a lack of suitable men." She has complained often about the adolescent tendencies of young black men, as will just about any young black woman when the subject comes up.
I highly suggest you read the article...it's right on the money. Now if only this man's words would be taken to heart, black culture may begin to shed its negative light, and become something we can all be proud of. Unfortunately, I'm sure his words will only go as far as those of Bill Cosby's.


I Stopped Counting At 80

Count the number of times he was told to "get up!"

Of course, the campus police should have just kept shouting at the man, long into the night...even if he never actually obeyed their orders. There's a reason for tasers...they are NON-LETHAL, and they work. But then again, how dare we allow anyone to be exposed to a little non-lethal encouragement to follow orders by the police.


Nancy's First of Many...

Democrats voted today to elect Rep. Steny Hoyer (D-MD) as the House Majority Leader, which puts Speaker-elect Pelosi at a 0-1 record, so far. Of course, she's not even officially the Speaker yet.

As you're likely aware of, Pelosi's candidate of choice was Rep. Jack "Redeploy to Okinawa" Murtha (D-PA). Mr. Murtha was defeaded by a vote of 149-86...not exactly a close call.

It's amazing how Nancy Pelosi's first WORDS were all about "working together" with the President, and "having the most ethical Congress in history"...but when push came to shove, her very first action as Speaker-elect was to nominate the man who represents the FAR LEFT point of view of the Democrat party.

Let's just say this: whether I sound like a whiny conservative or not - it's a nice defeat to relish in. :) Starting down minus 1, Nancy Pelosi will enter the House in typical liberal form: a victim of her own stupidity.

Bob Novak has a roundup of Nancy's Conundrum here.


YouTubin' For Ganstas

Michelle Malkin recently posted about this topic, which brought my attention to it. I'll just let the video speak for itself.


Kerry: Relegated to the Background

This is absolutely hilarious. I can only imagine the photoshop possibilities...

Caption: "Former U.S. Presidential candidate John Kerry (background L) watches on as incoming U.S. Senate Majority leader Harry Reid (C)(D-NV) walks alongside his party colleagues on Capitol Hill November 14, 2006." (Source)

You know it's just eating him up inside... ;-)
