Power Line: How To Punk Your Own Argument

I have a question for Power Line's John Hinderaker: If the Obama administration "are taking exactly the actions that one would choose if one were trying to damage the economy," how can you conclude they are not "actually trying to hurt our economy"? It's akin to reading your post and concluding that you can't possibly be letting Obama off the hook since it looks like you are. Jeez.

Elizabeth Taylor And Fame's Fleeting Nature

Via Nancy French at NRO's The Corner:

And such is the fleeting nature of fame. Perhaps the most famous movie star (and sex symbol) in history, her death causes barely a ripple amongst entire generations. It should be a gentle reminder to all women — all of us who struggle with those last ten pounds, who don’t even own four-inch heels, and who sometimes despair of glamour while driving three kids to school in a minivan — that legacies are not built on fame or sex or wealth, or even by a Drudge headline on the day of our passing. Our legacies instead are built by the kids in that van and by the husband who’s with you from the moment you wore white and said “I do” to the moment one of you says your final earthly goodbye.

Faithfulness, children, enduring marriage, and stretch marks. They may not be sexy, but they are the true legacies that even the most glamorous, upon reflection, wish they’d had.

Sheriff Biden: I Will Make It My Business To Impeach The President

President Bush, that is - of course, Dubyah never came within a million miles of even considering what Biden is talking about here and what Obama has actually, really just done: illegally take the nation to war without Congressional approval. But since Sheriff Joe is nowhere to be found right now, no-one can ask him if he is suddenly a man of integrity (I know, but stay with me) or just the same old lying political hack he has always been.

Via Drudge and countless others.


Leftist "Incest To The Third Degree"

In Anatomy of a Smear Power Line dismantles a smear campaign engineered by George Soros' Useful Idiots and the Obama machine. To the point:
What we see here is incest to the third degree. The disgusting morass of left-wing blogs, funded by far-left billionaires like George Soros, spew up an endless stream of slimy attacks on mainstream citizens, like Charles and David Koch, and mainstream politicians, like Mike Pompeo. Democratic Party outlets that are generally presumed to be more respectable, like the New York Times and the Washington Post, watch the dirt flow by and periodically, when they see something promising, pluck it out of the swamp and take it mainstream in order to benefit their party. The Post isn't as bad as some--I have referred to it as the most respectable voice of the Democratic Party--but when it follows this disgusting practice, plucking out the vilest unsubstantiated smear and promoting it for purely partisan purposes, it is hard to distinguish the Post from the most disreputable far-left rags, like Think Progress and the New York Times.

Disqualified Republican Presidential Candidates, The Series: Part Two

Haley Barbour. Good man. But this is all it takes.

The upside for Mississippians is that they will always have Haley Barbour on their side.


How To Read Obama

Moshe Dyan used to say that he aquired his reputation as a great general by fighting Arabs. Similarly, it now seems that the way to earning a reputation as a great journalist is to cover President Mxyzptlk.

It's simple: 'ere his every utterance, the opposite is almost certainly true. NRO's Greg Pollowitz has a great example in the final 2008 debate between Senators McCain and Obama:

MR. OBAMA Well, this is an area where Senator McCain and I have a fundamental difference because, I think, the first question is whether we should have gone into the war in the first place.

Now, six years ago, I stood up and opposed this war, at a time when it was politically risky to do so, because I said that not only did we not know how much it was going to cost, what our exit strategy might be, how it would affect our relationships around the world and whether our intelligence was sound but also because we hadn’t finished the job in Afghanistan. We hadn’t caught bin Laden. We hadn’t put Al Qaeda to rest. And as a consequence, I thought that it was going to be a distraction.

Now, Senator McCain and President Bush had a very different judgment. And I wish I had been wrong, for the sake of the country, and they had been right. But that’s not the case.

We’ve spent over $600 billion so far, soon to be a trillion. We have lost over 4,000 lives. We have seen 30,000 wounded. And most importantly from a strategic, national security perspective, Al Qaeda is resurgent, stronger now than at any time since 2001.

We took our eye off the ball and not to mention that we are still spending $10 billion a month, when they have a $79 billion surplus, at a time when we are in great distress here at home and we just talked about the fact that our budget is way overstretched, and we are borrowing money from overseas to try to finance just some of the basic functions of our government.

So I think the lesson to be drawn is that we should never hesitate to use military force, and I will not as president in order to keep the American people safe. But we have to use our military wisely, and we did not use our military wisely in Iraq.
But somehow this inexplicable Libya thing is just what we need. Read the followup questions and ponder.

Quote Of The Day

Karma runs over dogma:
What I am opposed to is the attempt by political distract us from a rise in the uninsured, a rise in the poverty rate, a drop in the median income – to distract us from corporate scandals and a stock market that has just gone through the worst month since the Great Depression.

Reality Dawns On The Idiots

As Operation Odyssey Dawn dawns in Libya, it's time to rub the idiot left's faces in their collective idiocy, which Glenn Reynolds does with great glee. Eat crow, you idiot crow-eaters.

Obama's dishonesty was okay to the left when it just hurt Americans they hate, but now that it's goring their own oxen, it's impeachment time.

But why is Andrew Sullivan so upset? I thought he liked getting it in the squeakhole; that's what he advertised. Wouldn't getting it from Opey be his fave fantasy? After all, he slobbered all over the candidate for his promises of hopeychanginess, which Dan Reihl scores in loving retrospect. The result? Sully was had like all the other idiots.

That's what makes them idiots.

This isn't rocket surgery, folks.

Bonus link: If Bush and Cheney were guilty of war crimes, then Obama is too. Who says? Ralph Nader, that's who!

Ruthless People

My "Hillary Clinton Shows Barack Obama How It's Done" Fantasy Just May Be About To Come True

Today we learn that Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is fed up with President Present over his paralysis on Lybia (also known by everyone but, well, Barack Obama, as "Libya"), and that she is angrily looking for exits.

Not happily, mind you, nor even indifferently; angrily. And you don't want Hillary angry with you. Oh no. Especially when she is in a position to destroy you after you so viciously took her down in 2008.

Now that is delicious: the Clintons are positioning themselves to deliver payback to the bird-flipping punk who, as BJ was regrettably heard to remark, would have been serving them coffee not so long ago.

Now: I am no fan of the Clintons, especially their contempt for the hired help, but I do respect their political instincts. I think they smell Obama's blood in the water after his Libya fiasco, and the leak from a Clinton insider to the is the first nibble in what could be a long and bloody feast leading up to November 2012.

Here's hoping.

My Pet Goat

Northern Japan is literally in ruins.

Kadaffi is slaughtering his own people.

Oil prices are weakening American national security.

Gasoline is on the way to 10 bucks a gallon if Obama has his way. Won't that be great?

The treasury is swamped in ever-increasing debt.

In answer to these and other pressing national and international crises, President Barack Obama is appearing on ESPN to give his college basketball picks.

I kid you not.

Instapundit: LEADERSHIP: While Japan Burns, Obama Fills Out His Bracket. Also, Libya.

John Podhoretz: Obama's been reading My Pet Goat for four weeks.


Palin Talks Budget With Ted Baxter

Sorry. Couldn't resist.

A good, wide-ranging conversation in which Gov. Palin addresses the reform of Social Security and other entitlement programs, Obama's incredibly destructive trillion-dollar deficits, and the real need to cut spending, tap energy resources and shrink the federal government.

Slaughter Of The Innocents

video platformvideo managementvideo solutionsvideo player
YouTube and Facebook don't want you seeing this video: the aftermath of Friday's murderous attack on an Israeli family by typically bloody-minded Palestinian savages.

Meanwhile in Gaza “residents from the southern city of Rafah hit the streets Saturday to celebrate the terror attack in the West Bank settlement of Itamar where five family members were murdered in their sleep, including three children.

Residents handed out candy and sweets, one resident saying the joy “is a natural response to the harm settlers inflict on the Palestinian residents in the West Bank.”

Moral equivalence masquerades as moral outrage.
And still western 'liberals' support these people. But of course: they're just giving the Jews what they deserve.
