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?

Rosie O’Donnell show tanked, cancelled….

Last week the cat dragged Rosie Live to the TV screens of millions of viewers. They took a quick peek, a wiff, held their noses while their eyes watered, ears folding back into the head in protest and quickly threw Rosie and her show in the garbage. Wraped in a double layered, bio degradable poop bag with safety seal. Next to all the other soft to the touch poop bags containing the stinkaroos the loony left wing nuts of NBC have been trying to feed the public but no one wants to see.

The hype around Rosie O’Donnell had been building for months, carefully cultivated by the American left. Every Mainstream Media standard bearer had been breathlessly promoting her variety show as being cutting edge, raw, politically savvy, the bane of conservative thought and the mainstay of the new NBC season. It was going to be the equivalent of the New York Times, Huffington Post and Late Night with David Letterman all rolled up into the shinning beacon of comedy, thought, analysis, opinion and celebrity worship missing on TV screens. Oprah, dare they say, should be worried. It was going to be glorious! Who were they kidding?

Truth be told Rosie O’Donnels show was cancelled because no one saw it. Sorry, let me correct myself in the name of objectivity. Don’t want to give you the wrong impression! Five million people saw Rosie Live, about the same number of people that think Barack Hussein Obama really IS the Messiah. Nah, bad comparison. 63.7 million Americans bought the Obama’s song and dance extravaganza and believed he was the Messiah, the One, the Almighty, the Black Superman to borrow a phrase from the 1975 song by Johnny Wakelin And The Kinshasa Band. Some are starting to get buyers remorse but that is a topic for another time.

Guests were many and varied, from a retired Minnelli to a gay as a three dollar bill Aiken, but for whatever reason they had something in common that night and I don’t mean being Barack Obama supporters. Most were talentless as in having lost their talent at home and not finding it before leaving the house. So bad in fact that if bad taste and a poor performance were a crime they would all be serving time working as hotel staff at the Taj Mahal Palace Hotel in Mumbai, India. Among the worst offenders we find: Liza Minnelli, Harry Connick Jr., Conan O’Brien, Jane Krakowski, Alec Baldwin, Clay Aiken, and Alanis Morissette.

I guess that by her stint at The View the people know what a far-left-wing kook O’Donnell has become and no one outside the knife-wielding, loony toon left wants anything to do with her. Except Obama central, NBC, of course. Not withstanding the Mainstream Medias disengenuous pre-airing hype, Rosie Live was dead on arrival. A POS and no, I’m not talking about my newly found passion, EVE Online.

Fairness Doctrine and the wilting Mainstream Media

I wonder if Democrats across the entire dem/lib/progressive/looney tunes left ideological spectrum are in such a hurry to bring back the Fairness Doctrine for radio and their newly invented bastard brothers and sisters for cable and the Internet because they see their Mainstream Media allies going down in flames. Simply put, now that the shamelessly obvious and in your face liberal bias of most Mainstream Media (MSM) is recognized by the public for what it is they no longer trust the MSM to provide fair, balanced and trustworthy content.

To illustrate my point a couple of candidates come to mind. Can you guess the stock market price of one share of candidate number one the once trustworthy New York Times? In yonder days it was affectionately revered as the Gray Lady proudly sporting the catchy slogan “all the news that’s fit to print”. But these days, outside of left wing circles, it is derided and known as one of the best birdcage liners money can buy whose slogan should read “all the filth fit to print”. Share price: $5. Yup 5 bucks, down from a high of over $ 40. Candidate number two is the Associated Press (AP) or AP-Obama as Rush Limbaugh calls it. Recently this once unquestioned and rock solid source of global news announced it would let go 10% of its workforce come January 2009.

The MSM helped get Barack Obama elected, agressively supported gay marriage and every other lib cause they got wind of but has now lost most if not all of what little credibility it had left outside left wing circles and is more quickly than slow going out of business. Will Obama try to bail out his propaganda arm and curb the seemingly unstoppable rise of conservative talk radio and cable shows by implementing the Fairness Doctrine or one of their recently mentioned bastardlings? If they do, will Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi play fair and also implement the Fairness Doctrine for their propagandists on the over the airwaves TV channels? How about their disciples on the internet, cable shows, magazines, newspapers, college and university papers, etc.? An Obama presidency is bound to give the MSM a boost just by the fact he is a dem, one of them. But hopefully, in the long run, the boost will be towards bankrupcy.

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.

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!

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.

Say it ain’t so John McCain!

Listening to Rush Limbaugh’s show yesterday I almost gagged, feeling betrayed. Rush had nothing to do with it, Obama and his crew had nothing to do with it either, even that pork laden Wall Street bailout bill was not the culprit. John McCain was the culprit. The GOP presidential candidate, our Republican Party candidate, told news agency Reuters that he would get Al Gore involved in talks to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and in talks to replace the Kyoto Protocol. McCain would tap, with all the billions of people on the world to chose from, Al Gore on environmental maters. 

Al Gore? Mr. I-make-up-the-facts-because-I-am-a-rabid-anti-American-lib-and-can-get-away-with-it-while-making-millions Gore? Mr. loony tunes, let’s scare the children, hypocrit in the extreme, discredited, partisan environmentalist himself? The left’s prophet of manmade environmental doom and gloom? The very same.

Come on John, say it ain’t so! Unfortunately it was.

While our gal Sarah Palin is out there swinging away at Joe Biden, taking on the Mainstream Media and asking to be sent to Michigan with hubby Todd Palin so they can campaign together in a state the campaign pulled out of a couple of days ago, John McCain seems to have stolen a page out of the democratic playbook and learned it by heart. I hope that come November he pulls the right lever and does not vote for Obama to prove he is bi-partisan.

By Monday I’ll probably be over it but in the meantime, quoting Diddy on one of his video blogs, “John McCain is bugging the f*@% out. I don’t even understand what planet you’re on right now.” I never thought I would quote anything Diddy said. Ever. That’s how disappointed I am in McCain.

McCain’s quotes regarding Al Gore can be read at the very end of the article found HERE.

Sarah “Barracuda” Palin is back!

It is no secret that most liberals, the Mainstream Media (MSM), East and West Coast Elites, feminists, a large part of Canadians and Europeans, and in all probability Senator Hillary Clinton do not like Governor Sarah Palin. Ever since her being announced as Senator John McCain’s VP pick she has been incessantly beaten with a proverbial 2×4. After her first speech last August she instantly became a republican rock star, eclipsing Barack Obama himself, and turning upside down America’s stereotype of what a successful woman should be. We conservatives knew in our bones libs, dems and progressives would do everything in their power to tear her apart. We were not let down.

After her two uplifting, triumphant coming out speeches things began getting rough for our gal Sarah. The Mainstream Media brewed up a 55 gallon drum of their special voodoo-black magic potion, so strong that a whiff could kill a moose, and went to work. By the time Palin gave her first interview her star was starting to lose its brilliance. The first one to use MSM tactics on her was ABC News’ Charlie Gibson followed by CBS News’ Katie Couric. Our gal unfortunately did not live up to expectations and underperformed. Add to her non rockstar interview performances a good dose of creative editing, some well though out gotcha questions, and by the time the dust settled she was on the ropes. Her aura had been so damaged in the eyes of some conservative pundits that they were publicly asking she be dropped from the ticket. The Obama campaign and the MSM were gloating. How the worm had turned.

By the time VP debate day arrived we had been treated to a couple of weeks of hilarious skits on SNL by Tina Fey, Sarah jokes on late night shows and expectations were low that our gal would be a worthy opponent to Senator Joe Biden. As usual the talking heads of the MSM were wrong while Middle America was sure of McCain’s choice. Whatever missteps and sins she committed on the interviews were forgotten after her debate performance in front of 70 million viewers. I believe Joe Biden had no idea what hit him or what he was up against. From the economy to foreign policy to putting the moderator on notice she performed, not flawlessly, but as the Sarah Palin we saw in August. Biden had more knowledge and experience but was flanked and out maneuvered.

Her performance provided a much needed boost to McCain’s struggling campaign and has given the Obama/Biden strategists more sleepless nights. Somewhere on the campaign trail Sarah “Barracuda” Palin is grinning. Joe Biden is making sure no bodily pieces are missing. The MSM is tweaking the voodoo-black magic potion. I wonder what Tina Fey will come up with tonight.

The Vietnamese torturer and the Obama biased debate moderator

The Mainstream Media sometimes, well several times a day, really lets loose its left-wing bias against McCain/Palin. A couple of nights ago it was NBC’s turn, again. Can you believe they sent a team to Hanoi, Vietnam to find out if what McCain has said about his prisoner or war experience was true or not? Of course NBC painted the Vietnamese as likable, sympathetic figures that helped McCain instead of torturing and almost killing him. The first person interviewed was Mr. Lavan Lawa who helped pull McCain out of the shallow lake where he landed. No mention of McCain getting a bayonet in the groin or having his arm broken by the mob that “helped” pull him out. Next in the batting box was nurse Nguyen Thi Thanh who McCain has credited for saving his life. Her portrait was probably the only part of the segment close to the truth explaining she gave him medicines and set his broken bones. Last but not least was Mr. Tran Trong Duyet the ex prison director of the infamous Hanoi Hilton prison. Can you guess what he said? That McCain has it all wrong. Duyet explained that there was no torture, that prison officials were inept and friendly and that at night he and McCain would discuss the war while McCain taught him English. In my opinion this was an unbelievable hit piece by NBC that you can see here.

Not to be outdone the supposedly non-partisan Commission on Presidential Debates gave us a doozy yesterday. It turns out that Gwen Ifill, the moderator of tonights Vice Presidential Debate, is writing a book that will be named ” The Breakthrough: Politics and Race in the Age of Obama” to be released on inauguration day. According to Dick Morris,  who was on The O’Reilly Factor on Fox News yesterday, Gwen Ifill is set to make at least $ 300,000.00 if Obama wins or only sell 4 copies is he loses. She has a vested interest, a financial stake they call it, in Obama winning but of course she says she is impartial. Do you buy that? I don’t. Also keep in mind that Ifill was one of the lib biased journalists questioning whether Sarah Palin having 5 kids made her eligible to be Vice President of the USA. Of course Gwen Ifill is an African-American and if anyone dare question her, that person is a racist and a bigot. Sounds familiar? Ifill is already playing the race card while defending herself from detractors. Who also plays the race card? None other than Barack Obama himself.
