Merry Christmas!

I hope all is well with you and yours and I wish all of you a very Merry Christmas and a very healthy and successful new year. When this is published (it's on auto-post) I'll be in a new, yet old city as I move back home in another life-altering move and although most of it is personal, some of it is a bit nomadic. Just a calling to go. Lately it can best be articulated, on paper, by RUSH's "Fly By Night."

To make a long story short (insert the cast and crew of any Monty Python production shouting, "Too late," here) it may take at least until the new year before I continue annoying you all. So, yes, my New Year's post/salutations will also be on auto-post. Big whoop. Wanna fight about it?

So again until the new year, Merry Christmas to all!

Kim Jong Il Dead at 69

North Korean leader Kim Jong Il, who seemed very comfortable in his role as tyrant as he for decades staved and oppressed his people, died of a heart attack on Saturday whilst in transit via rail in Pyongyang, North Korea.

That's three. The next 10 or so years are going to be very interesting, if not down right scary, in the Middle East and the Korean Peninsula. How will Putin react to all of this?

Arrogance Knows No Bounds

I've posted before on how even clinical psychiatrists have deemed President Barack Obama a narcissist.

If you need any more proof of it (besides just listening to him talk at any given time) just watch he had to say to 60 Minutes Steve Kroft (which Kroft never did challenge him on anything, surprise)

Here's the transcript, complete with Kroft performing a complete fawn dive at the Great Leader's feet as he butters the president up with overwrought accolades for questionable or even down-right false "accomplishments."

KROFT: Tell me, what do you consider your major accomplishments? If this is your last speech. What have you accomplished?

PRESIDENT OBAMA: Well, we're not done yet. I've got five more years of stuff to do. But not only saving this country from a great depression. Not only saving the auto industry. But putting in place a system in which we're gonna start lowering health care costs and you're never gonna go bankrupt because you get sick or somebody in your family gets sick. Making sure that we have reformed the financial system, so we never again have taxpayer-funded bailouts, and the system is more stable and secure. Making sure that we've got millions of kids out here who are able to go to college because we've expanded student loans and made college more affordable. Ending Don't Ask, Don't Tell. Decimating al Qaeda, including Bin Laden being taken off the field. Restoring America's respect around the world.

The issue here is not gonna be a list of accomplishments. As you said yourself, Steve, you know, I would put our legislative and foreign policy accomplishments in our first two years against any president -- with the possible exceptions of Johnson, F.D.R., and Lincoln -- just in terms of what we've gotten done in modern history. But, you know, but when it comes to the economy, we've got a lot more work to do. And we're gonna keep on at it.

So he's better than George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Theodore Roosevelt, Andrew Jackson, John Adams, JFK, Harry Truman and Ronald Reagan?

Restoring America's respect around the world?

Christopher Hitchens Dead at 62

Possibly the most prolific and opinionated intellectual on any aisle, author, activist and pundit Christopher Hitchens has died at age 62 from complications with pneumonia.

Peace In Our Time

So Barack Obama was supposed to be the Great Unifier. The man who would dazzle his fellow leaders throughout the globe and bring world peace with a snap of his godly fingers. He was supposed to make men like Kim Jong Il and Mahmoud Ahmadinejad see the light of their totalitarian ways.

Instead, with Iran going nuclear and Lil' Kim threatening the West around the clock, this is what Obama is showing the world...

The Most Annoying Liberals of 2011

Last year columnist John Hawkins wrote a column identifying the 20 most annoying liberals of 2010. Not much (if anything) has changed as it's still the same irrelevant, unhinged moonbat leftists that make this the most politically divisive era in memory.

The Top 20 Annoying Liberals of 2012

20) Joe Biden: Everybody knows how goofy Ol’ Say Anything, Do Anything Joe is! He might tell a dirty joke to a roomful of school children! He might stick a squirrel down his pants! Oh, by the way: He’s Vice-President and he’s supposed to be the “gravitas” who helps keep President Empty Suit from getting too far out of whack. Yeah, that worked out great, didn’t it?

Defining quote: As you probably know, some American politicians and American journalists refer to Washington, DC as the “capital of the free world. But it seems to me that this great city (Brussels), which boasts 1,000 years of history and which serves as the capital of Belgium, the home of the European Union, and the headquarters for NATO, this city has its own legitimate claim to that title. — Joe Biden

19) Andrew Sullivan: Sully’s still a good writer, but he’s becoming an increasingly unhinged joke. Over time, he’s become less of a “serious person” and more of a jokey “I hope he gets the help he needs” wackadoodle — particularly, when it comes to Sarah Palin.

Defining quote: The medical term for Down Syndrome is Trisomy-21 or Trisomy-g. It is often shortened in medical slang to Tri-g. Is it not perfectly possible that the very name given to this poor child, being reared by Bristol, is another form of mockery of his condition, along with the “retarded baby” tag? And does the way in which this poor child was hauled around the country on a book tour, being dragged out in front of flash photographs in the middle of the night, barely clothed, suggest someone who actually cares for children with special needs, or rather sees them as a way to keep the spotlight on her? — Andrew Sullivan

18) Michael Bloomberg: New York’s chief nanny spent $100 million of his own money so he could continue to systematically ruin the greatest city in the world with his mismanagement a little longer. Whether it’s trampling on the graves of the people who died on 9/11 by supporting the Ground Zero Mosque, micromanaging what everyone eats, or driving the wealthy out of the city with exorbitant taxes, Bloomberg will do whatever it takes to run New York right into the ground.

Defining quote: If I had to guess 25 cents, this would be exactly that. Homegrown, or maybe a mentally deranged person, or somebody with a political agenda that doesn’t like the health care bill or something. It could be anything. — Michael Bloomberg on Faisal Shahzad’s carbombing attempt in New York

17) Charles Johnson: Know what irony is? It’s a guy who used to run the premier anti-radical Islam blog on the internet going so far in the other direction that he’s supporting the Ground Zero Mosque. If you take bubbling anger and broken dreams, then add betrayal and a ponytail, you have Charles Johnson.

Defining quote: It’s one thing to evolve in your thinking. It’s another thing to become the reviled enemy of that which defines you. His sole purpose is to destroy people. I can’t relate to it. I don’t understand it. We can all sit here and scratch our heads and say, “Is he an operative? Is he being paid or what happened?” Who cares? He’s a destructive force.

…He adds nothing to the dialogue. He adds nothing to the discourse. He seeks solely to destroy the most effective voices on the Right. So to me, he’s lower than even a Kos and I don’t think the left trusts him either because he’s such a traitor. To say that he’s abandoned his principles is actually giving him too much credit. He now reviles the thing that he once was. You explain it. — Pamela Geller

16) Joy Behar: Behar’s an extremely nasty person, which she tries to excuse by claiming she’s a “comedian.” You have to put that word in quotes because she’s not actually funny and you wouldn’t know she is a comedian unless someone told you.

Defining quote: Those flowers were picked by illegal immigrants. And they’re not voting for you, b*tch. — Joy Behar on Sharron Angle

15) Arnold Schwarzenegger: Is it unfair to put “ah-nold” on here? After all, he spoke at the 2004 Republican Convention and when he started as governor of California, he definitely tried some moderate and conservative ideas. But, after Schwarzenegger’s ideas were “terminated” by the voters at a 2005 special election, he moved so far to the Left he was indistinguishable from the man he replaced. Now, people are horrified that he’s been replaced by Jerry Brown. Well, at this point: what’s the difference?

Defining Quote: In fiscal matters Arnold Schwarzenegger has governed more like a Keynesian than a Friedmanite; in regulatory affairs, he governs more like a German socialist than an Austrianschool liberal. Today he is as much of an albatross for California Republicans as George W. Bush was on the national scene. — Steven Hayward

14) Chris Matthews: Chris Matthews has a television show despite terrible ratings and the fact that almost everyone hates him. I’m not sure whether a deal with the devil, blackmail, or God help us all, sexual favors for MSNBC executives best explains how someone like Matthews can stay on the air.

Defining Quote: I was trying to think about who (Obama) was tonight. It’s interesting: he is post-racial, by all appearances. I forgot he was black tonight for an hour. — Chris Matthews

13) Meghan McCain: She’s the single dumbest person writing political commentary in America today. Hearing Meghan McCain talk makes you wish she’d found a more productive way to trade on her daddy’s money and name — like Paris Hilton or Kim Kardashian.

Defining Quote: See, Meghan McCain wants to be looked up to and admired as a leader. She even claims to be continuing her “one woman revolution (if you will).” …She can’t seem to fathom that she has no leadership qualities whatsoever, nor any original thoughts of her own, so she instead invents a persecution complex in order to explain why she isn’t Sarah Palin. She explains it thusly: she’s too “edgy.” Meanwhile, her edginess is about as edgy as a spoon. She’s blonde! And has tattoos! And a gay friend! Granted, he’s her hairdresser, but still. Shut up, H8Rs! No one is shutting Meghan McCain out; she is choosing to nail herself to a cross. — Lori Ziganto

12) Ed Schultz: If you’ve never heard of Ed Schlultz, it’s perfectly understandable. After all, he’s a liberal radio host with a show on MSNBC, which is about as close as it gets to being invisible in America. As befits someone who works on MSNBC, Schultz is a complete jackass with an elevated sense of importance who says bizarre things on a semi-regular basis while he drives down the IQ of his audience with his rants.
Defining Quote: Dick Cheney’s heart’s a political football. We ought to rip it out and kick it around and stuff it back in him. — Ed Schultz

11) Keith Olbermann: Never has someone so utterly ineffective been so smug about it. He’s like a pretentious eleven year old who craps his pants while he gives overwrought lectures to the other kids in class on the importance of toilet training.

Defining Quote: In short, in Scott Brown we have an irresponsible, homophobic, racist, reactionary, ex-nude model, teabagging supporter of violence against woman and against politicians with whom he disagrees. In any other time in our history, this man would have been laughed off the stage as an unqualified and a disaster in the making by the most conservative of conservatives. Instead, the commonwealth of Massachusetts is close to sending this bad joke to the Senate of the United States. — Keith Olbermann

10) Paul Krugman: You could replace every column he wrote in the last year with the words “I blame the Republicans” and “We need to go a lot further into debt” and you wouldn’t miss a thing.

Defining Quote: In the end, I’d argue, what must happen is an effective default on a significant part of debt, one way or another. The default could be implicit, via a period of moderate inflation that reduces the real burden of debt; that’s how World War II cured the depression. — Paul Krugman

9) Janet Napolitano: She’s picked up the nickname “Big Sis,” but given her performance, “Sergeant Schultz” might be more appropriate. Whether you’re an illegal alien crossing the border into Arizona or a terrorist trying to get on a plane, she knows nothing, nothing!

Defining Quote: What I say to the American people is that… thousands of people are working 24/7, 364 days a year to keep the American people safe. — Janet Napolitano
8) Helen Thomas: The grizzled, old liberal anti-Semite finally got too nasty about “ze Jews” and is no longer allowed to waste space at the White House press gaggle. It couldn’t have happened to a nicer bridge troll.

Defining Quote: We are owned by propagandists against the Arabs. There’s no question about that. Congress, the White House, and Hollywood, Wall Street, are owned by the Zionists. No question in my opinion. They put their money where their mouth is…We’re being pushed into a wrong direction in every way. — Helen Thomas

7) Alan Grayson: It’s hard to believe this guy was ever a congressman. Grayson’s an extraordinarily surly-tempered cretin with no redeeming values whatsoever beyond the fact that he’s rich. He’s like the bad guy in half the movies that were made in the last decade. Of course, he did get crushed at the polls; so that’s proof that Democrats can get their just desserts in non-liberal districts.

Defining Quote: How about just tracking down every single person who said drill baby drill and putting them all in prison. Why don’t we do that? Starting with Michael Steele. — Alan Grayson

6) Harry Reid: He played Robin to Nancy Pelosi’s Batman in shoving Obama’s hated and damaging agenda through. As he did so, Reid managed to be unfailingly nasty, hyperpartisan, and showed a complete lack of concern about doing what is good for the country.
Defining Quote: I don’t know how anyone of Hispanic heritage could be a Republican. — Harry Reid

5) Barney Frank: He’s extraordinarily obnoxious, utterly sleazy, and unfailingly incompetent. He’s also one of the people who bears the most personal responsibility for the housing crash that helped create the current economic woes we have. Yet, he gets elected over and over. No wonder the Democrats think Americans are stupid. If you knew you could perform as poorly as Barney Frank and get re-elected, you’d probably think Americans are stupid, too.
Defining Quote: Massachusetts Congressman Barney Frank caused a scene when he demanded a $1 senior discount on his ferry fare to Fire Island’s popular gay haunt, The Pines, last Friday. Frank was turned down by ticket clerks at the dock in Sayville because he didn’t have the required Suffolk County Senior Citizens ID. A witness reports, “Frank made such a drama over the senior rate that I contemplated offering him the dollar to cool down the situation.” — New York Post

4) John Pistole: Fascism has come to America and it’s called the TSA. Now, as a condition of travel, you either have to be viewed naked by government goons or you have to let them sexually molest you. Their excuse? They’re just following orders. Whose orders? John Pistole’s orders.

Defining Quote: If you touch my junk, I’m going to have you arrested. — John Tyner

3) Feisal Abdul Rauf: It’s bad enough that this creep insists on trying to build a celebratory mosque at Ground Zero, but the fact that he’s applying for government funds to do it and keeps claiming it’s about “building bridges” makes him absolutely intolerable.
Defining Quote: Such was the violence on 9-11 that my brother’s remains were never found. He was killed by Islamists and now they want to build a mosque on his grave. Their victory will be complete. — Christina Regenhard

2) Nancy Pelosi: The plastic autocrat ran the House during one of the most irresponsible times in American history. Happily for Republicans, despite the fact that she’s about as popular as cholera, the Democrats kept her as leader.

Defining Quote: Bipartisanship is a two-way street. A bill can be bipartisan without bipartisan votes. Republicans have left their imprint. — Nancy Pelosi

1) Barack Obama: Never has such arrogance been combined with such utter incompetence and weakness in the White House. The result? We have the single worst President in American history and his first term’s not even over yet.
Defining Quote: If Latinos sit out the election instead of saying, “We’re gonna punish our enemies and we’re gonna reward our friends who stand with us on issues that are important to us,” if they don’t see that kind of upsurge in voting in this election, then I think it’s gonna be harder and that’s why I think it’s so important that people focus on voting on November 2. — Barack Obama

Honorable Mentions:
Al Franken, Al Gore, Al Sharpton, Anthony Weiner, Arianna Huffington, Bill Clinton, Bill Maher, Bob Beckel, Charles Rangel, Debbie Wasserman Schultz, Dylan Ratigan, Eric Holder, Ezra Klein, Geraldo, Hillary Clinton, Howard Dean, James Cameron, James Clyburn, John Edwards, Jesse Jackson, Jimmy Carter, John Conyers, John Kerry, John Lewis, Kathy Griffin, Lawrence O’Donnell, Markos Moulitsas Zúñiga, Matthew Ygliesias, Maxine Waters, Michael Moore, Mike Malloy, Rachel Maddow, Roger Ebert, Roseanne Barr.

So, Capitalism Never Worked?

So says the almighty and clearly retarded President of the United States.

In yet another clear-cut episode of why this president is an ignoramus, despite the over 200 plus years of economic growth and prosperity (not to mention the influence around the world it helped to create) the United States has garnered, the so-called "intellectual" president says capitalism doesn't work and never has.

And Bush didn't deal in reality? Good God. People still actually think this guy is smart? So much for an Ivy League education.

Then again, maybe he's right (ker-chuckle)

Michelle Obama Having an Affair?

I doubt it and I usually hate to reprint undocumented rumors, but since the liberal MSM don't care (Duke lacrosse team, Sarah Palin non-scandals, etc) why should I?

Michelle Obama Having Secret Affair with Secret Service Agent

If this isn't in fact true, don't expect the conservative media to have anything to do with this (although the MSM and Democrats-one in the same y'know-will clearly claim they do) it's probably been exposed as a plight for pity for the sure-to-lose Obama in November 2012. Then again, I'm speaking as if the MSM will even touch this.

Hezbollah Claims to Release Names of CIA Officers in Lebanon

By Greg Miller, Published: December 12

Escalating its confrontation with the CIA, the militant organization Hezbollah released what it said were the names of agency officers working in Lebanon in a television broadcast that aired there last week.

The exposure creates new security risks for CIA officers in a country where American espionage operations had already been damaged by Hezbollah’s capture of a group of agency-paid informants.
The names of the purported CIA members were broadcast Friday on the Lebanese television station al-Manar as part of a report that claimed to expose the agency’s spying efforts as well as its collaboration with Israel.

CIA spokeswoman Jennifer Youngblood said the agency “does not, as a rule, address spurious claims from terrorist groups. I think it’s worth remembering that Hezbollah is a dangerous organization, with al-Manar as its propaganda arm. That fact alone should cast some doubt on the credibility of the group’s claims.”

Youngblood declined to comment on whether the report was accurate or whether the agency had or would remove officers from a country that has long been an espionage crossroads in the Middle East.
Former CIA officials indicated that at least one of the names mentioned — that of the station chief in Beirut — appeared to be accurate. The move by Hezbollah was designed to intimidate would-be spies, they said.
“They want to dissuade people from spying in the future, show the world that they’re a very capable organization,” said a former senior CIA official. “They also want to embarrass the agency as much as possible.”

Last month, U.S. officials acknowledged that a group of informants on the CIA payroll had been identified and detained by Hezbollah. The organization apparently used software analysis of cellphone records and calling patterns to track the communications of suspected spies.
The names included in the al-Manar report are not being published by The Washington Post.
In the past year, the CIA has recalled two of its chiefs in Islamabad, Pakistan, after their names were exposed in the country’s press.

Myths of The New Deal

It was such a driving force behind his mythic first term that the MSM just had to enblazen the NEW New Deal across the pages of Newsweek and Time magazines. Unfortuantely, most people don't know the real history of what ultimately prolonged the Great Depression. The ill-fated plan that President Obama wanted to repeat. A plan that some Libtards actually still think would work and totally revitalize the economy a la Alladin and the Lamp.

This is primarily why Democrats are a failure in the White House. Every time.

Here in a nutshell is why the New Deal didn't work and never will. A trait Libs love to defend and honor: failure.

MYTHS of the NEW DEAL from Powerline via Center for Freedom and Prosperity

Something Else the MSM Won't Report

Because it's not the Catholic Church. You see, the Liberals love their Hollywood allies and heroes. So a scandal like this is simply either to be downplayed (you know, it's not "rape-rape," right Whoopie, you idiot!) or all together ignored.

By NewsBusters Tina Korbe

Apparently, pedophilia is an entrenched part of Hollywood culture — but you wouldn’t know that if you only consulted The New York Times for news. Check out this Fox News account of just some of the muck that underlies Hollywood’s glamorous gilding:
If a spate of recent allegations proves true, Hollywood may have a hideous epidemic on its hands. The past two weeks have brought three separate reports of alleged child sexual abuse in the entertainment industry.

Martin Weiss, a 47-year-old Hollywood manager who represented child actors, was charged in Los Angeles on Dec. 1 with sexually abusing a former client. His accuser, who was under 12 years old during the time of the alleged abuse, reported to authorities that Weiss told him “what they were doing was common practice in the entertainment industry.” Weiss has pleaded not guilty.
On Nov. 21, Fernando Rivas, 59, an award-winning composer for “Sesame Street,” was arraigned on charges of coercing a child “to engage in sexually explicit conduct” in South Carolina. The Juilliard-trained composer was also charged with production and distribution of child pornography.

Registered sex offender Jason James Murphy, 35, worked as a casting agent in Hollywood for years before his past kidnapping and sexual abuse of a boy was revealed by the Los Angeles Times on Nov. 17. Murphy’s credits include placing young actors in kid-friendly fare like “Bad News Bears,” “The School of Rock,” “Cheaper by the Dozen 2” and the forthcoming “Three Stooges.”

What’s worse: Former child stars like Corey Feldman (“Lost Boys”) and Alison Arngrim (“Little House on the Prairie”) have said these three isolated, independent charges of child abuse are indicative of a much broader problem. Their quotes are chilling:
Corey Feldman [made] eye-opening remarks in August to ABC’s “Primetime Nightline” that “the No. 1 problem in Hollywood was and is and always will be pedophilia. That’s the biggest problem for children in this industry … It’s the big secret.”

Alison Arngrim, the veteran Hollywood actress best known for her role decades ago as Nellie on “Little House on the Prairie,” has said, “This (the abuse of children) has been going on for a very long time.
“If a child actor is being sexually abused by someone on the show, is the family, agents or managers – the people who are getting money out of this – going to say, ‘OK, let’s press charges’? No, because it’s going to bring the whole show to a grinding halt, and stop all the checks,” says Arngrim. “So, the pressure is there not to say anything.”
This might, perhaps, explain why, occasionally, a movie will come out of Hollywood that seems to seek to normalize adult-child sexual relationships — movies like 2008′s “The Reader” or 2004′s “Birth.” To some in Hollywood, child exploitation evidently is normal.

Yet, according to NewsBusters, New York Times reporters and editors can’t be bothered to shine light on this dark trend. They did, however, find space on page A6 of Friday’s edition to report an unconfirmed claim that a Catholic archbishop in Ireland — who died in 1973 — was posthumously accused of child abuse.

Note: I am not saying the NYT shouldn’t have reported the claim against the archbishop. I am saying the paper — and, indeed, the many Hollywood activists who can’t keep their mouths shut about other, less-pressing issues — should make an effort to disrupt a disturbing trend in the entertainment world by doing what a newspaper is supposed to do. In other words, I’m saying NYT reporters should report the news.

P.S. Paging Lady Gaga … Wouldn’t this kind of child molestation qualify as bullying in a big way?

Update (Ed): I’m in full agreement with Tina in this post, but I do want to offer a qualified defense of The Reader. First, the relationship in the film was not pedophilic; the teenager was 16, not a pre-adolescent, and that’s the age of consent in at least several US states. More to the point, however, is the fact that the film intentionally shows the damage that the relationship causes the teenager throughout his life. It’s an allegory for the relationship between the German generation of the Nazi era and the generation that followed. The entire point of the relationship in the film was that the Nazi generation “molested” and twisted the succeeding generation, which had to endure the guilt and shame of that association. That point could have been driven home with less nudity and sexual content, but it’s also worth pointing out that the actor in this case was 18 years of age at the time those scenes were shot.

I have more issues with American Beauty on this score than The Reader.

Update II: I’ve gotten a few e-mails that say the character was 15, not 16, but he’s 15 at the beginning — before he spends several months in bed with scarlet fever, and before the relationship starts with the older woman. In any case, the relationship is clearly shown as damaging and manipulative, not as a good thing for the boy.

Obama=The Father of All Lies

Everything Old is New Lies Again

So, what's been happening during my on-again, off-again status? I'm making a big change in my life recently, so I haven't been posting as much as I would wish. On the other hand things have just, well put quite simply, bored me recently in the political world. Yeah, there has been a lot going on, but it's been all the same. The divisiveness that I used to find entertaining and a fuel for posts has just turned sour. It's the same old thing day after day. The MSM bias, the hatred, not just disagreement, but hatred of conservatives (based on those MSM lies and bias) is just old and tiring.

I guess there may not be anything to interest me until a juicy scandal comes along (other than Solyndra, Fast and Furious and other Obama administration tidbits that the media still refuses to report, or at least the whole truth about, other than an introductory 10-second sound-bite) or the 2012 general election.

But as for today, the same ol' same ol:

Obama See America as a Stumbling block to His Greatness

compounded with the usual MSM softball interview:

Obama Thrown Softballs; Interview Devoid of Solyndra, Fast and Furious

And the reason useless Liberals like Chris Tingle and Lawrence O'Donnell try to destroy anything Conservative (Unhinged Chris Matthews Shrieks: 'Deadly,' Satanic Newt Gingrich Is a 'Political Killer') (MSNBC's O'Donnell Hails Obama's 'Organized Exit' From Iraq) is because of precisely what Col. Allen West (Conservatives Get Flak from Liberal Media Because They're 'Over the Target') and Charles Krauthammer (Obama's Speech 'Classic Example of How Little it Takes to Stir the Erogenous Zones of Liberals) suggest.

Again. Something new please.

Still A Day of Infamy

Sunday, December 04, 2011

When He's Right, He's Right

Say what you will about former Speaker of the House, Newt Gingrich. Be it his past marital infedelities or whatever else may make you seeth about the man (I'm also not so crazy about his ethics as well) but like I've said in previous posts, the man sure knows how to handle the Obama-loving media. That in itself is reason enough to see how he would handle the GOP-hating press as president.

Meanwhile in the Tiny Little Bias Mind of Cenk Uygur

Now that ex-MSNBCer Cenk Uygur has another show on the network of a gazillion people watching, the Al Gore lie-fest that is Current TV (as in currently no viewers) that employs the likes of other cast-offs into media oblivion such as Kieth Olbermann, he let his opaque opinions shine through when he recently sat down with an equally daft interviewer from at Think Progress who framed a question in the form of objective journalism being "a myth." Uygur, then thinking anybody actually cares what he thinks (hence his career "advancement") said that "[The media] don’t know the difference between neutrality and objectivity. I think objectivity is a good thing to try for even if you don’t reach it. I think that’s a minor problem. A much bigger problem is neutrality."

Why is it when these forgotten libs go on or get a show of their own that even less people watch than their former gig, they get even louder and more proud of their ignorance?

And Boom Goes the Dynamite

Because this headline litteraly made me explode with laughter. Really.

PBS' resident bar stool (or more like pylon) Mark Shields actually thinks Obama, even if he faces Newt Gingrich in the 2012 general election and with the way the economy is going (and what Obama did to make it much, much worse) the current president would win in a landslide.

A landslide? Really? Let's see...

Bush 41 had just routed Iraqi forces out of Kuwait in a major victory and even that couldn't help him win a second term because the economy was bad.

Jimmy Carter couldn't get a second term because of his malfeasance with the economy, even though we was (allegedly) loved by everyone. Sound familiar? He was then resoundingly routed by Ronald Regan.

Bill Clinton had an affair with an intern, lied to his family, America and the world, yet he managed America through a very good economy. Guess what? A second term for Slick Willy.

Bush, jr. had the whole world hating him (or so liberals will tell you) but had a decent economy at the end of his first term. The result, a second term against an ineffectual John Kerry.

But yet Shields seems to think that all that "Yes We Can" crap is still enough to help his friutless leader hold on to the presidency through 2016.

Am I wrong here?

MSNBC's Hayes Mocks Cain, One More Racist at America's Irrelevent Ultra Liberal Network

Chris Hayes mocks Herman Cain.

Of course, Hayes and his defenders will obviously say that it was, wait for it..."a joke," and that he was just mocking Cain's campaign in general and not his skin color. Of course, we all know different, don't we fake network lovers of anyone not white?

Hey, it's just liberal speak coming back at them.
