Notice to Obamaniacs and Undecideds
"All statements by Barack Obama come with an expiration date. All of them."

The above was written by Jim Geraghty in response to Obama's latest disavowal of his own "position" on D.C. v. Heller.

For a guy who is a purported Constitutional scholar, one might expect a bit more...confidence when it comes to these sorts of issues.

Again, Obama isn't about "hope" and "change" (whatever they are), he's merely another politician, playing to his audience, telling them what they want to hear, and disavowing his own statements, friends, family, etc., when they become political liabilities.

Tedious. I'm a bit sick of writing the same post over and over and over again, but I'm gonna keep hammering away.

Somebody needs to "speak truth to power."

D.C. v. Heller

What do you know? It turns out that you really do have a right to protect your life, liberty, and property.

Much more on this tomorrow, I hope. Been busy doing zoo with Bunny Boop and Friends.

Still, I am over the moon on this one!

It is like Christmas in America!

Or, if you are a liberal, hehheh - toobadforyou!

Barack Hussein Obama is a LIAR
Raise your hand if you are surprised.

So much for "hope" and "change", this SOB is politics as usual.

Make a promise, break it. All in a day's job, I guess, for the Messiah of Hope and Change.

We're TOTALLY FUCKED. He's gonna let George Soros and the left wingnuts buy him this election. 'Cause, you know, he's entitled to it. He and his bitter wife who complains of affording ballet lessons et al on their combined salaries and, of course, the price of arugula at Whole Foods.

I guess the rest of us had better go back to clinging bitterly to our guns and religion now. The Obamessiah has spoken.

New Logo for that Press Agency That Shall Not Be Named...
Sorry, too too delicious. The Ugly American had this fantastic idea for a new logo for those cyberjerks at that press agency that shall not be named. It is a shame that they don't understand the legal concept of fair use, because they are getting SLAMMED in the blogosphere.

The Associated Press SUCKS
The Associated Press Sucks.
The Associated Press Sucks.
The Associated Press suckssuckssuckssuckssucks.
The AP sucks.
The AP sucks hard.
The AP SUCKS donkey parts.

This blogger now officially despises the AP and will no longer ever again link to an AP story (probably made up anyway).

Instead, I will completely paraphrase and denigrate any AP story that catches my notice.

By the way, the AP sucks.

You may have missed that while you were speed reading.

Mother Nature & Universe Collude to Take Me Down a Notch
So, there I was, merrily walking across the street as I do every weekday at that time.

And, it is such a lovely day, I am noting to myself the cool breeze and the way that Nature, even in it's civilized, manicured forms, has a calming effect. How wonderful, I think to myself, it would be to take a play day. Have a picnic, enjoy the weather. Oh, how youth and free time are wasted on the young.


A wet patch of grass takes me down, face first, into said wet grass.

Mother Nature is such a bitch! Now I have grass stains and nature's equivalent of road rash.

Oh, and my manicure suffered for the take down too.


UPDATE: That Bitch! I thought I had come out of my take down relatively unscathed. Not so! My whole body aches now. It isn't just my pride, it is my arms, legs, hips, back, wrist, ankle, neck...I feel like I've been run over.

Obama Campaign Strategy Set to Song
Sometimes, sometimes, I am driving along or brushing my teeth or shaving my legs and the most brilliant (okay, sometimes not brilliant per se), most astounding things come to me.

For example, I was driving home from work on Friday afternoon listening to a favorite cd and I realized that the Obama campaign has stolen it's strategy from this Chicago classic. Imagine Richard Gere singing, that's what I do. I see Obama as Billy Flynn. It is too perfect. Read it and see if you agree.

Razzle Dazzle

Give 'em the old razzle dazzle
Razzle dazzle 'em
Give 'em an act with lots of flash in it
And the reaction will be passionate
Give 'em the old hocus pocus
Bread and feather 'em
How can they see with sequins in their eyes?
Long as you keep 'em way off balance
How can they spot you got no talents?
Razzle dazzle 'em
And they'll never catch wise!

Give 'em the old razzle dazzle
Razzle dazzle 'em
Back since the days of old Methuselah
Everyone loves the big bambooz-a-ler

Give 'em the old
Double whammy
When you're in trouble, go into your dance
Though you are stiffer than a girder
They let ya get away with a murder
Razzle dazzle 'em
Razzle dazzle 'em
Razzle dazzle 'em
And you've got a romance

If I were more e-talented, I'd set up a youtube video of him bamboozling the obamaniacs set to this song. I'm telling you, it is totally perfect.

Obama: A Diatribe on Hypocrisy and Political Expediency
I've been giving Obama a break recently out of respect for friends who are big fans. But, now I feel compelled to point out a few flaws with the golden boy, seeing as how the MSM has decided he's now clinched the nomination.

First, the hypocrisy over his church. You remember the story, right? Obama's pastor of 20-some odd years somehow managed to keep his America-hating, whitey-hating, conspiracy-theorizing from coming to Obama's attention. When the MSM and blogs shined a light on the racism and America-hatred, bigotry, and vileness, Obama had his "great speech on race" and explained that he could no more disavow Wright and that church than he could deny his white grandma or the entire black community. I had plenty to say at the time. Obama claimed that he'd never heard these sorts of comments from Wright and that they had been taken out of context. (Because, apparently, there is some sort of context where claiming that the US government created AIDS and Crack to keep the black man down is reasonable.)

But then, Rev. Wright came out and reiterated his ugly notions in front of the press. Out the window went the "context" argument. Out the window went the dodge that Obama couldn't have been aware of these views long held by Wright. So, Obama threw Wright "under the bus" and off of the board of advisors to his campaign.

But then, Obama got in trouble with another pastor, this time a Michael Pfleger, guest speaker at Obama's church who said some nasty things about Hillary Clinton.

Once this story got some traction, Obama came out and quit his church. So, we are expected to believe that this radicalism and hatred spewing from the pulpit is a new development. Again, if you believe that, I've got some beach front property in Kansas for sale.

What bothers me about this is the political opportunism. Obama hung out at Trinity United because it gave him cred. That's how he was able to succeed in Chicago poliltics (amid other factors like coughRezkocough). Now that he needs to appeal to white suburban housewives, the Oprah demographic so to speak, he needs to distance himself from this sort of racism and hatred. You can't be all about "hope" and "change" if all the people around you are still clinging to conspiracy theorys and racial hatred. Obama only now distances himself because to not do so is political suicide. Some may buy it, but I, for one, do not. I could not sit in a pew and listen to this hatred for 20 minutes, let alone 20 years. And, I have no illusions that this kind of crap is a new development.

But Obama's church issues are merely a distraction from the bigger issues.

Like the fact that he jumped to conclusions (along with Jack Murtha) about the Haditha case, effectively branding US Marines as "cold blooded murderers" before the investigation was done and before a jury had heard evidence. Obama will sit down and hear a homicidal maniac like Ahmadinejad out, but a US Marine doesn't get the same treatment? Fuck. That. Shit. That's unAmerican, that's what that is. A US Marine, in combat, deserves the benefit of the doubt from a public servant, at least until the investigation is done. They at least deserve kinder words than a man who professes to wish to wipe a country and its people off of the map.

And now, just today, we learn that Tony Rezko, Obama's bud, has been found guilty on 16 federal counts involving political corruption. Is this the kind of "hope" and "change" we can expect from an Obama administration?

"Today's verdict and Obama's friendship with Rezko raises serious questions about whether he has the judgment to serve as president," Robert M. "Mike" Duncan, chairman of the Republican National Committee, said in a statement.

You can say that again, Mr. Duncan.

But, Obama the golden boy must avoid the taint, so he shines the light on the corruption, claiming to be the solution! That takes brass balls the size of...Rhode Island!

Rezko has known Obama since he entered politics, raised money for his Illinois campaigns and was involved in a 2005 real estate deal with him. Obama has donated $150,000 in Rezko-related contributions to charity.

He issued a statement saying he was "saddened" by the verdict. "But now he has been convicted by a jury on multiple charges that once again shine a spotlight on the need for reform." Obama said.

Oops, now Rezko's under the bus too! It is getting awful crowded under there. Obama's going to have to move up to a B-52 bomber instead of just a bus.

But it is Obama's naivete when it comes to rogue nations that bothers me most.

In the CNN/YouTube debate, Obama said he would meet and talk with the leaders of rogue nations like North Korea, Syria, and Iran "without precondition".

Iran has made it clear that they want Israel annihilated, are working on nukes, but denying it. Oh, they also deny the Holocaust. Real open-minded and accepting of facts, that Ahmadinejad. And yet, Obama would shake the man's hand, sit down and have a chat. Except, now he's changed his mind. In speaking to a Pro-Israel group, suddenly his position on those unconditional meetings have shifted. Now, he insists there would be all these conditions:

"I would be willing to lead tough and principled diplomacy with the appropriate Iranian leaders at a time and place of my choosing if and only if it can advance the interest of the United States."
That's quite a bit different from the "without precondition" that he was selling before. Now, call me a cynic if you want, but it occurs to me that there are a lot of pro-Israel Jewish Americans in key states like...New York and Florida. Isn't it interesting that Obama is now choosing to sound a bit more hard-line when it comes to Meglomaniacal Homicidal maniacs? Okay. I'm not all that surprised. What does surprise me is the vacuum of outrage over these shifting positions. Obama is more of a flip-flopper than John Kerry was! For crying out loud.

Then, there is this other flip-flop.

Obama voted against labeling the Iranian Revolutionary Guard a terrorist organization.

Of course, that's not the full extent of the IRGC's malign influence. The group is an acknowledged supporter of terror (a fact even Senator Obama concedes), training, financing and arming Hezbollah, Hamas, Palestinian Islamic Jihad and most recently, the Taliban. At home in Iran, the IRGC now dominates the regime, with 9 out of 21 seats in the Ahmadinejad cabinet held by former IRGC and IRGC-affiliated officials. The IRGC is also a vital player in Iran's licit and illicit economies, and dominates important sectors like construction.

Needless to say, the Kyl-Lieberman amendment won broad support in the Senate, passing 76-22. Senator Hillary Clinton voted for it, as did Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, Senator Chuck Schumer, and Senator Dick Durbin.

Senator Obama, however, was one of a handful of senators who opposed the amendment

Full article here.

But now, again, he has changed his mind. Once again, speaking before a pro-Israel group, he decides that maybe they are terrorists after all. Gotta woo those Jewish voters in Florida, ya know. Maybe they'll be dumb enough to buy the crap he's shoveling. Lots of people seem to eat it up, anyway.

The would-be emperor changes his clothes more often than Reba does at a concert! "Fuck Oh Dear", as my daddy would say. Of one thing I am certain: McCain has plenty of opportunity in all of this. All he need do is start telling the truth about Obama and his "tell them what they want to hear" positions.

Highly Recommended
I highly recommend the following vendors for Father's Day gifts.

1. Tastes of Chicago. First, the products are delicious and delivered in exceptionally exacting state. You can get a Lou Malnati's Pizza, Eli's Cheesecake, Portillo's Hot Dogs, or Carson's Ribs. Or, you can splurge and get your daddy a combo pack that includes all of these. That's what I did and my dad raved.

2. Cowgirl Chocolates. I've been in love with this company since I saw them profiled on the Food Network. Their product is a bit unusual and not for the faint of heart (or tastebud). They have a tendency to add a little kick (jalapeno, habanero, etc.) to their confections. But, for that guy who likes a little kick, it is just right. Dad loved the toffee, but hasn't had a chance to try everything yet.

Don't forget to get your dad something special.

Guilty Plea
Via Michelle Malkin comes this news that one of the Ohio al Qaeda jihadis has plead guilty. The charges?

"one count of conspiracy to use a weapon of mass destruction, specifically bombs, in terrorist attacks"

Dude. I hope they put this m-f in general population, or at the very least that he never (and I mean never not the justice system's notion of "never") sees the light of day again.

From the AP report:

Paul plotted to bomb government buildings overseas and European vacation spots frequented by American tourists. The indictment does not name specific resorts or buildings that might have been targeted, but gives U.S. embassies, military bases and consulates as examples.

Paul is the last of three Columbus-area acquaintances charged with alleged terrorist activities after the FBI opened an investigation more than five years ago. The Justice Department has accused the three of discussing terrorist attacks during an August 2002 meeting at a coffee shop in suburban Columbus.

One of the men, Iyman Faris, a U.S. citizen originally from Pakistan, pleaded guilty in May 2003 to providing material support for terrorism and was sentenced to 20 years in prison.

The other man, Somali immigrant Nuradin Abdi, pleaded guilty in July to one charge of conspiring to provide material support to terrorists. He is serving a 10-year sentence after which he will be deported.

But, for all of you ostriches out there, don't worry. There is no domestic threat to terrorism. Oh, and I have some lovely beachfront property in Kansas for sale.
