Culture of Corruption Indeed

We've all heard the B.S. spewing out of the vitrol mouths of Nancy Pelosi, John Kerry, Harry Reid, etc. about the so-called Republican "culture of corruption". Well, anybody that has a memory that goes beyond 1990 will remember Sandy Berger stuffing classified documents down the front of his pants, John Murtha being involved in Ad-Scam in 1980, Ted Kennedy leaving a woman to die, drowning in a car that plunged into the water (why Dems and libs conviently forget about this and then excuse it is reprehensible. That "man" should be in prison) Barney Frank who's boyfriend (with Frank's complete knowledge)ran a brothel out of Frank's home, William Jefferson having $90,000 worth of bribes in his freezer, and of course there's Slick Willy and Mrs. Willy themselves. Can you say Whitewater? And to top it all off, Pelosi (I guess she did get the gavel after all)wants to install an impeached judge in charge of all the nation's top secrets. Nice one. I'm sure there's a whole slew of corrupt liberal hypocrites that I can mention, but I'm really just blogging today on a whim. I really shouldn't have to remind anyone of this, but of course the mainscream media (thanks Hugh Hewitt) barely reports on it once, then let's it dissapear, hoping no one will remember. If a Republican is caught with his pants down (no wait, that's Slick Willy again) the story would last a millennium. Mark Foley anyone?

FLASH: I just heard that FOX is going to produce a right-wing version of The Daily Show with Jon Stewart. I don't know who the host will be (probably Dennis Miller) but I believe the working title right now is The Nightly Show. I know, not very original, but who cares. You know this show, just like conservative talk-radio shows that massively and consistently destroy Air America in the ratings and Bill O'Reilly's continuing embarrassment of the Clinton News Network, MSNBC (HA! take that Olberman!)and all the other cable news outlets combined, will, in what, a couple of months? destroy Jon boy. This is gonna be great! Imagine the guests: Rush, Hugh Hewitt, Mike Galager, Laura Ingram, Bill O'Reilly and all (if not many) conservative actors. They do exist. Some are: Clint Eastwood, Gary Oldman, Robert Duvall, Billy Bob Thorton, Tim Allen, Kelsey Grammer, Bo Derek, Bruce Willis, Britney Murphy, Jessica Simpson (believe it or not), Patricia Heaton, Tom Selleck, Jerry Seinfeld, John Malkovich, John Millius, Vince Vaughn and so on.

As Much As It Looks Like It...

It may not be as bad as some of us think.

With the Democrats successfully taking back control of the House AND Senate (no, it's not just a really bad dream)although it may not seem like it, it may not be as bad as it looks. (Although Barney Frank is running financial services if you can believe that; of course you can, their Democrats) A lot of these young, new Democrats are conservative democrats, remember. Some might even call them "Reagan Democrats", if, indeed there is such a thing. This alone does not guarentee that Nancy Pelosi will have the votes she needs to become Speaker of the House. President Bush was right when he said "Some people in Washington are already measuring the drapes." And although there some designers being called in to "retrofit" offices for the new occupants, Ms. Pelosi is still counting her chickens, me thinks.

Some of these new Representatives are, not maybe, but are a little too right of center to blindly follow the party line and give their vote away to someone even they see as someone who is a little too extreme for their liking. Some of these new members may include: SENATE-Heath Shuler(NC), Joe Donnely(IN), Brad Ellsworth(IN), Charlie Wilson(OH), Chris Carney(PA), Jason Altmire(PA),
HOUSE: Jim Oberstar, Collin Peterson, Ike Skelton, and along with the list just mentioned in both Senate and House, several pro-life Democrats will chair House sub-committees.

I really do believe, as does any logical thinking conservative, that the vote results show that people didn't throw out or give up on conservative ideals, they threw out the people that failed to embody and protect those ideals. Trust me, in two years the Democrats lose 25 percent of what they gained on the 7th of November. However, if these new "conservative democrats" indeed revive the Democratic Party to the days of old, the Senate and House may be under siege for a while.

The new blood of the Democratic Party may lead the way with tales of their heroes and their success. When leaders like Truman and Roosevelt stood up to aggression (after some convincing on the downside of isolationism) and even Kennedy (who by the way didn't pass one bill as President-did you know that? Not one.) stood up to the Soviets, eventually. Then again, the Dems to have a tendency to forget about all the learnings of history, don't they?

There is no doubt that the name democrat has been unmercifully tarnished by San Francisco values. Democrats have been labeled (and most times rightfully so) as moonbats, kool-aiders, wing-nuts, kooks and other funny and accurate monikers. It's these people like Pelosi, Biden, Kennedy, Boxer, Dean, Kerry, Clinton, etc. that, much like fundamentalist Islamics, have kidnapped their doctrine and made it there own; with unwavering hypocrisy leading the way. Now we will see full-tilt where this hypocrisy will lead. Now they have to be accountable.

Two years isn't long. THEY will be in judgment soon.

It's Time

O.k, not quite yet. But soon, very soon.

Tommorrow is the day that America (and being Canadian myself, unfortunately, I can't take part in this battle for history) vote for their representatives, senators, governers etc, to determine the future of the United States. *Help us Obi-Wan Kenobi, you're our only hope* (Sorry about that)
Anyways, I'll be brief: please, people, DO NOT VOTE DEMOCRAT!!! As I've said, any vote for a democrat is a vote for defeat. And I don't mean just in the war, but in everything from immigration (although both parties-mostly republicans-are to blame for that one), to education, to the economy (to all you lefties-if there, in fact, any that would dare read this blog-Clinton didn't do all that well with the economy as much as the Democrats would have you believe. The balanced budget wasn't his baby, believe me) to everything in between.

Are these the people you want to lead you?

More "just for fun stuff". Should Republicans lose the House, at least we still have these:

Sorry about the picture alignment. I still haven't quite got the hang of this. Don't worry. I'm working on it.

I Really Don't Know

I really don't know which way the voting is going to this coming tuesday. My heart and mind says the Republicans will hold the Senate, but may just lose the House...barely. But recently I've heard some rumblings about some reps coming back in some states and of course, I then heard John Kerry totally remind us of why he's a footnote in history: he basically calls the the soldiers in Iraq- who perhaps didn't get an education before their enlistment-stupid.

I was thinking that maybe he was talking about Bush and just screwed up a joke. Then I was reminded of how Kerry really doesn't care for the men and women who wear the uniform of a United States soldier, nor does he have any respect what-so-ever for the customs and traditions of the U.S. military.

I also heard on Michael Medved's radio show that he apparently changed the "speech" he was supposed to give. Kerry cut 21 words out of the speech, including the one word that would have made a diffrence-the word "us". It seems Kerry could have avoided this headache by stating,

"You know education-if you make the most of it, study hard and you do your homework and you make an effort to be smart, you can do well. If you don't, you get us stuck in Iraq."

That's his defense, he screwed up a joke. Well, first off, it shows he can't even write his own jokes, even for teenagers. Second, if this truly was a joke about Bush's intelligence, why is Kerry the one to make it? He's no Einstein himself. I already re-published a Thomas Sowell column in which he wrote about how President Bush scored higher than Kerry on military intelligence tests. WHY OH WHY DON'T THE REPUBLICANS PUBLISH THIS? Also, why don't rich conservatives buy a major movie studio?

Regardless, Kerry has just sent some undecided voters the Republicans way, by shooting off his big mouth, again. Can even Howard Dean be this insensitive?

But even with this goof by Kerry, with the help of the MSM to make this go away and minimize it, the race for Nov.7 remains tight. Although rest assured the media and the ever-so-accurate-Zogby polls will "show" that americans "don't really care" about this. What they really want is to get back to talking about how disgusting the Republicans are for having a type like Foley in their party, after all. Should they continue to be successful in diverting attention away from everyone seeing their real colors, this is what will most assuredly be put up for a vote.

This must be stopped at all costs. Any vote for a Democrat is a vote for defeat.

But, I remind you of of Kerry's past on his opinion of the United States military, among other moral indignations:
