Colin Powell throwing shoes at Rush Limbaugh

I find it funny in a warped, badly scripted, viscerally wrenching sort of way when a “supposed” Republican like Colin Powell, a known turncoat, bashes conservative icon Rush Limbaugh for believing his conservative beliefs, never mind throwing our gal Sarah Palin under the bus in the same breath for holding HER small town beliefs. Such defeatist thoughts, rooted in the victorious post election liberal mantra, appropriate for lib lips but never for a conservatives and uttered in a serious, deep and measured tone of voice by a Collin Powell leaves the mind free to wander through it’s seldom visited cobweb filled rooms while sifting among barely remembered old news stories.

After a trip along memory lane one starts to wonder how someone with Collin Powell’s lack of moral compass, lack of beliefs and, most of all, lack of loyalty ever made the rank of General never mind a four star General. I am beginning to understand that Barack Hussein Obama was not the only affirmative action “magic minority” out there. But unlike a turncoat Powell, Obama who is another member of the “magic [affirmative action] minority”, has something going for him. He was grateful, steadfast and loyal to his party and supporters. Loyal to the people that nurtured and helped him on his way.

It’s understandable that liberals, democrats, progressives  and their worshippers in the Mainstream Media (MSM) would look at Rush Limbaugh like something soft and smelly someone steps on at the park. But for a supposed black “conservative icon” like Powell to try and eviscerate Limbaugh and Palin on liberal cable news ex-powerhouse CNN by launching non-stop verbal darts [a la Egyptian shoe throwing journalist] is so gay. After all wasn’t a wishy washy Powell the one who kept everyone wondering to what political party he belonged? The MSM loved him for it. Wasn’t Powell the traitor to Republicans when a few weeks before the election the “supposed” conservative Powell endorsed Obama? The MSM and liberal loved him for the endorsement while Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity and other prominent conservatives roasted him on prime time saying his decision was race based. Wasn’t Powell the one that bashed our gal Sarah Palin because she did not meet his, I believe, liberal standards for a Republican female candidate? Again the MSM and libs loved and adulated him for his stance against Palin.

Is Powell at all concerned about his legacy? Probably not. He knows that he can hide behind the African-American shield, using his race for cover for those not in the know, while in my opinion possibly working behind the scenes to get himself or maybe his son some sort of position in the Obama White House and paving the way for lib written history books to remember him as the member of the “magic minority” that came to his senses after wandering off the plantation. Don’t forget that the MSM is already busy cleaning and rehabilitating his name of the Uncle Tom and house negro references / remarks made by some of it’s members while Powell worked for the Bush Administration. These days the MSM even goes as far as reminding us of what a great and historic man Powell is to his generation. In their opinion.

Collin Powell should bow his head in shame, resign the GOP as soon as possible and have the courage to say: I am a proud lib! Come out of the closet Collin Powell, who do you think you are kidding?

Terrorist keynote speaker at University of Nebraska, not!

William Ayers, the Barack Obama supporter and unrepentant American terrorist, had been invited by the University of Nebraska – Lincoln (UNL) to give the keynote address next November 15th during part of the college’s two day 100th anniversary celebrations. His 9:00am speech would have been titled “We Are Each Other’s Keepers: Research to Change The World”. A bit much chutzpah coming from a founder of the 1960’s American terrorist organization the Weather Underground, don’t you think? Some people got mad as hell and began asking that if UNL wanted a prominent negative figure couldn’t they have booked the likes of Ward Churchill or O. J. Simpson instead? Why not ratchet up the ante and invite Osama bin Laden or the very first radical, according to Saul Alinski, Lucifer?

This week when Michelle Malkin and Rush Limbaugh spread the word that Ayers was coming to town the uproar began in earnest. Some politically correct faculty members, college groups and regents tried to defend the decision to invite Ayers but after a couple of days of unrelenting and mounting pressure the Ayers visit was cancelled. Safety concerns was the reason given. I suspect UNL is trying to save face but threats by current and past alumni to withhold donations, a possible backlash for the Obama campaign not to mention political pressure from Governor Dave Heineman and Senator Ben Nelson among others were the real cause of the invitation being rescinded.

Liberals are in shock that they couldn’t get away with the Ayers visit and are asking themselves what the world is coming to when an unrepentant homegrown left-wing terrorist cannot give a speech to mostly conservative reared college students. They rationalise the invitation as giving those conservative reared students the opportunity of hearing a novel and opposing point of view because that is what colleges are supposed to do, challenge young minds. I beg to differ, a 1960’s unrepentant American terrorist has no business giving speeches at American college campuses much less teaching at the University of Illinois at Chicago.

A final thought: Since UNL is a liberal paradise can you imagine the reception our gal Sarah Palin would receive if she gave a speech there? Saturday Night Live and Tina Fey would have a blast with all the material they would have to choose from for that Saturday’s show.

McCain to Letterman: I screwed up

A couple of days ago on YouTube I watched a short clip of John McCain’s appearance on the Late Show with David Letterman. The show airs on CBS. To my horror I thought McCain looked inept, out of touch, on the defensive and clueless under the barrage of rapid fire questions from Letterman. That is, until my curiosity got the best of me and I searched for, found and saw the whole unedited interview a couple of days later, also on YouTube.

You can watch the edited interview, with commercials (sorry blame CBS), HERE.

You can watch the full interview, with commercials (sorry blame CBS), HERE.

What a difference, no? Remember the hit pieces disguised as interviews both Katie Couric (CBS Evening News) and Charles Gibson (ABC News) did on our gal Sarah “Barracuda” Palin? Liberals had a field day with those edited interviews, doling them out like fast acting poison pills meant to maim not kill, until they were debunked. Weeks later. Some of the damage they inflicted on Palin’s credibility still lingers to this day. 

As has become the norm the shortened interviews from members of the Mainstream Media (MSM) have morphed from meant to inform to cleverly edited vicious hit pieces. There is a lesson to learn here folks: When looking for stuff on YouTube one has to search a bit, maybe even repeating the search several times using different words, and not be swayed by the first video the search engine throws up or at best, coughs up.

John McCain roasts Barack Obama

John McCain and Barack Obama roasted each other at the 63rd Annual Alfred E. Smith Foundation Dinner in New York City. McCain was the first up and set the bar pretty high cracking jokes and jabbing away at Obama about Joe The Plumber, his gaffe at not remembering how many houses he owns, Bill Clinton campaigning half heartedly for Obama, the Mainstream Media bias in favor of Obama, ACORN and voter fraud, etc. In the last part of his speech he praised Obama and the strides made by the USA is fighting racism. All in all a must see masterful performance by McCain. Yes, even his praise of Obama.

Watch the first part of McCain roasting Obama HERE.

Watch the second part of the McCain’s performance HERE.

There is about a minute and a half overlap between the first and second video. Enjoy!

Last night McCain nailed Jell-O to the wall

Barack Obama is a gifted speaker. He can speak for hours, as we have seen on numerous occasions, without saying nothing, committing to nothing and get thunderous applause and rave reviews about his slick rhetoric. Reminds me of Seinfeld, a very funny top of the ratings sitcom about nothing. But at last nights debate Obama pressured by McCain had to take a stand and say something and I believe that finally McCain was able to do the unthinkable: nail Jell-O to the wall. With a nail gun.

Below are some of the points and differences in positions and ideology outlined by McCain:

  • Obama will raise taxes, McCain will lower them.
  • Obama believes in increasing the size of government, McCain believes it’s size has to be reduced.
  • Obama believes in income redistribution, McCain believes the people should decide how to spend their hard earned money.
  • Obama supports abortion, McCain opposes it.
  • Obama believes more money will help educate children in the US, McCain believes accountability and transparency not more money will do the trick.
  • Obama does not support school voucher programs, McCain does.
  • Obama wants to look for offshore oil, McCain wants to drill for offshore oil.
  • Obama wants to unilaterally make changes to the North American Free Trade Agreement to please environmentalists and unions, McCain believes NAFTA is fine at it is.

Right-wing political pundits will disagree that McCain won calling the debate a tie because Obama’s feathers were not ruffled enough. Left-wing political pundits, who are registered independents (in my opinion democrats in disguise), will of course disagree with me that McCain won. They wished, wanted, were looking for, and on their toes ready to discredit any knockout punch thrown by McCain during the debate. In their eyes anything but a sweat spraying, mouthpiece dislodging, jaw breaking, canvas munching, lights out knockout of Obama a la Mike Tyson of old was unacceptable.

I beg to differ because history has shown us that if you chip, nibble, jab, grind and sandblast away at an opponent one can come out the victor, never mind the Mainstream Media waiting to prop up Obama and if needed give him CPR and drive him to the hospital. I believe McCain won the debate last night and before millions of viewers has at long last laid the ground work to begin nibbling and chipping away at Obama’s recent lead in the polls. Am I the only one that has noticed the polls beginning to tighten in the last few days? Jab away John but dont forget to drop the hammer when you see an opening.

Our gal Sarah “Barracuda” Palin does things a bit differently, for days now she has been tearing out chunks of meat outta him. No wonder Obama looks thin. But the real winner of the night was the moderator, Bob Schieffer, of CBS. Unlike the two previous debates where the moderators constantly interrupted Obama and McCain just as they were beginning to roll he actually let the candidates go at each other. Way to go Bob!

Iran to Obama: We HAVE preconditions

Barack Obama in answer to a question during the July 23, 2007 CNN/YouTube Democratic Debate replied that he would meet without preconditions with the leaders of Iran, among others. To refresh your memory about what Obama said please watch the video HERE. If you still have doubts read the transcript HERE. If you have more doubts, I cant help you but you can get Rick rolled HERE.

Fast forward to the present. Today the Iranian Vice President for Media Affairs, Mehdi Kalhor, said Iran will meet with the USA if TWO preconditions are met:

  1. Every single USA military member must leave the Middle East.
  2. All USA support for Israel must stop.

If you look at the two preconditions from Iran’s point of view they might not seem all that difficult to fulfill:

  1. Obama has said over and over again that he would pull out of Iraq as quickly as possible after being elected and that he would fight Al-Qaida in Afghanistan. After pulling out of Iraq I am not sure how long Obama would fight in Afghanistan because the left-wing of the Democratic Party wants the USA to not fight anywhere and to bring all troops home ASAP. Will Obama go against the wishes of the most vitriolic and opinionated elements in his party that believe terrorists are freedom fighters and that the USA is to blame for 9/11?
  2. Obama has said on several occasions that he supports Israel but in my opinion no one is sure what his exact position is because he has made conflicting pro-con comments about Israel. Just last week, in France, Rev. Jesse jackson said that if elected Obama would distance the US from Israel to which the Obama campaign quickly replied that  Rev. Jackson did not speak for the campaign and that he was mistaken. But other people in and near the Obama campaign have similar negative views of Israel.

Maybe Iran knows something about Obama’s plans that we don’t? Could Iran be thinking that Obama is another Jimmy Carter and that instead of a confrontation he will try appeasement? Nah that sounds like a conspiracy theory. Not possible, right?. On the other hand we have to keep in mind that when Obama was in Iraq he asked the Iraqis to postpone announcing that the war against Al-Qaida had been a success until next year, after the inauguration. In my opinion, to deny Bush the surge achieved victory and hurt Bush’s legacy.

Dear reader I pose a question, did Barack Hussein Obama just get Dixie Chicked by The Islamic Republic of Iran? You make the call. Iranian leaders are not naive or ignorant enough to meet their enemies without preconditions so why should the democratic POTUS wannabe?

Another democrat sex scandal

When the democrats took over the Senate and the House two years ago they were promising a new way of doing business. With the help of the Mainstream Media (MSM) they succesfully tared and feathered republicans with the “culture of corruption” moniker and in 2006 voters saw fit to toss the republicans out and hand both houses of Congress to the democrats. Unfortunately they turned out to be as guilty or guiltier of the same practices and sins as their predecessors but with the advantage that the MSM had their backs. The latest democrat politician to be involved in some sort of scandal is Representative Tim Mahoney of Florida.

Remember disgraced republican Representative Mark Foley? The one that sent sexual text messages to House of Representative pages and because of his conduct was forced to resign his seat about three years ago? Well, democrat Tim Mahoney was his replacement, who won the seat vacated by Foley campaigning on family values and morals. Mahoney, a married man, had an affair starting in 2006 with one of his staffers, Patricia Allen, whom he later fired in 2007. Allen threatened to sue so as part of the settlement she was offered a $ 50,000 a year job at the agency that handles Mahoney’s campaign advertising and a $ 121,000 payment.

The democratic leadership of the House of Representatives was probably aware of the affair as this is an election year. Will Speaker Nancy Pelosi be kicked out of the House of Representatives like republican Dennis Hastert, never to return? Will democrat Representative Rahm Emanuel, chair of the Democratic Caucus, be questioned as to what he knew when he confronted Mahoney about the affair in 2007? What about the allegations that he has been helping Mahoney keep the affair from hurting his re-election efforts? In my opinion Pelosi has spent billions more than the wasteful republicans the voters kicked out and she is ruling over a Democrat controlled House that has a couple of corrupt democrats in high places:

  • Chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee Charles Wrangel that “forgets” to pay taxes on his Dominican Republic vacation home.
  • Chairman of the House Financial Services Committee Barney Frank who claimed no knowledge of a prostitution ring operating out of his basement and who had a homosexual relation with an executive from Fannie Mae, Herb Moses.

Will the MSM try to ignore this sex scandal like they did the John Edwards affair? If I was a betting man I would say yes. Will democrats do the right thing and distance themselves from Tim Mahoney? They have a history of protecting their own so the answer is, probably not. The “culture of corruption” is doing well and flourishing under the new democratic administration.

Race card not working for Obama

Black politicians, journalists, businessmen and hip-hoppers around the country are starting to go berserk. Since the 1960’s to get white politicians, bankers, journalists, teachers, policemen, farmers, etc., off their backs for real or perceived grievances or to clear the playing field in whatever endeavour interested them, all African-Americans had to do was call whites one word, racists. After years of the Mainstream Media (MSM), public schools, colleges, movies, songs, advertisements, magazines, etc., having portrayed whites as being horrendous to blacks, some politically correct whites specially liberals, progressives and democrats have the concept of “white guilt” so deeply engraved into their psyche that they would do anything, and I mean anything, to avoid the R word. On the other hand for years blacks have been portrayed as hip, cool, defiant, etc., and have grown empowered to use the race card to get what they want.

Don’t get me wrong slavery of blacks by whites was bad and to us modern western dwellers of planet earth it is almost inconceivable to accept that one race enslaving the other was once an accepted norm in our own country. But even today we just have to look towards Africa to see that in some places slavery still goes on as well as in certain parts of Asia. Haiti comes to mind when looking for slavery in the Americas. Huge strides have been made in the Western world to fight racism but other parts have a ways to go to eliminate slavery never mind racism.

Enter Barack Hussein Obama into mainstream American politics. At the beginning no one knew how to handle an African-American candidate as quickly became obvious. During the Democratic primaries many prominent white democrats from ex Representative Geraldine Ferraro, the first woman ever to be nominated VP by a political party, to two term ex President Bill Clinton, called by a prominent African-American the first Black President, were demeaned and publicly called racists by their own when questioning Obama’s ability to be POTUS. Hillary Clinton was also not immune. White news anchors, commentators, talking heads, etc., were in turn called racists and bigots by black news anchors, commentators, talking heads, etc., because they questioned Barack Obama. Even writing or calling Obama by his full name, Barack Hussein Obama, was considered taboo.

Unforeseen by many, the constant use of the race card began losing it’s power.

Quick forward to today. A few days ago a writer for the Associated Press wrote that Sarah Palin might have used the race card against Obama because she said Obama hung around with unrepentant terrorist William Ayers. Two years ago a piece like that from AP would have been a career killer. These days, outside of the the MSM and democrat surrogates, no one really cared. Black and white democrat spokespersons that show up on radio, tv and cable bring up the race card constantly and it is either ignored or brushed aside without much fuss. Black democratic politicians like Yvette D. Clarke, Bill Perkins, Kevin Parker, Edolphus “Ed” Towns, Gregory Meeks, and Jesse Jackson Jr. have all come out saying the McCain / Palin campaign has tainted, to put it mildly, their election efforts with race. Is anyone listening to their complaints? We’ll see in a week or two when in all probablility Reverends Jeremiah Wright and Michael Pleger will be brought up by the McCain campaign.

The race card is no longer the atomic bomb it was 19 months ago. That is why many African-Americans who thought it could be used as a silver bullet to thwart any attack made against Obama by McCain are going berserk.

Sarah Palin: Obama hung with a Terrorist. CNN agrees!

Our gal Sarah is at it again. Last weekend Sarah Barracuda fresh from snacking on a befuddled Joe Biden at the 2008 VP debate, this time began tearing into Barack Obama and his ties with non repentant 1960’s terrorist William Ayers. Barack Hussein Obama is obviously very sensitive about the issue because with the war on terror going he does not want to be portrayed as knowing terrorists that bombed something, anything, in the continental USA. Much less “paling around” with one [or two], as our gal put it.

Before you stop reading and start sighing and rolling your eyes at reading that CNN actually did some fair investigative reporting on Obama’s ties to William Ayers, watch the following CNN video that aired on Anderson Cooper 360:

I would expect a segment like that to run on Fox News but never on CNN. Rush Limbaugh has a great joke posted on his website regarding Obama and his terrorist ties. The joke says: What do Barack Obama and Osama bin Laden have in common? They both have friends that bombed the Pentagon.

To see what our gal Sarah Barracuda Palin said about Barack Obama watch the following Associated Press video:

During her interview Katie Couric wanted to know what Sarah Palin reads, now she knows: The New York Times.

Video of SNL skit bashing democrats for financial meltdown

Did you watch all of Saturday Night Live last weekend? If you tuned off after the Sarah Palin / Joe Biden debate skit you missed seeing, in my opinion, some very interesting political satire. The following link takes you to an almost picture perfect satire of a skit about the role the White House, democrats in the House, their enablers, greedy speculators, and the “victims” of the meltdown play/played in the financial crisis. It has been yanked from many places because it ruffled a lot of democrat, liberal and progressive feathers but hopefully it will still be available at PatDollard.com.

The skit makes fun of a clueless President Bush, a mean to republicans Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, a hard to understand when he speaks Chairman of the Financial Services Committee Barney Frank, a haughty multibillionaire George Soros, and two gleeful liberals Herbert and Marion Sandler who sold their mortgage business to Wachovia Bank for about $ 24 billion before the meltdown. The only currently hot political topic missing is a reference to the ethically wrong homosexual 1990’s relationship between then Representative Barney Frank and Herb Moses, an executive at Fannie Mae.
