CBS = Clueless Brainless Stupid

Via The Weekly Standard Blog, CBS news has made the earth shattering discovery that a bunch of McCain supporters holding a sign saying "I am Joe the Plumber" are really McCain supporters dressed like plumbers named Joe.

Research on whether John F. Kennedy was a Berliner (or a jelly doughnut) is developing...

I Think It Should Be Supported

The folks in San Francisco will be voting next month on a measure that asks whether a local sewage plant should be renamed after President Bush. (via)

Even though the measure is intended to be a slight by the deranged Left, I actually think it will have an opposite effect if approved. After all, what do sewage plants do? They clean up crap. Figuratively speaking, San Francisco is full of it.

Add Peggy Noonan to the Center-Right Snob List

A nice takedown of Noonan's anti-Palin elitism at Stop Global Laming.

David Letterman: Obamoid

John McCain did a crappy job on Letterman last night of defending Sarah Palin for the absolutely true remark she made that Barry Zero pals around with terrorists. Although McCain managed to blurt out the word "unrepentant," he didn't aggressively follow up on it and basically let Letterman get away with the standard Obamoid defense that The One was just 8 years old when Bill Ayers and Bernadine Dohrn were bombing federal buildings in the early '70s. When Letterman mindlessly said this, McCain should have looked him seriously in the eye and said, "Dave, please tell me when William Ayers and his wife, Bernadine Dohrn, stopped holding the verified status of terrorist."

Follow Up: In the video above, Letterman tries to trivialize the significance of Obama's affiliation with Bill Ayers by bringing up John McCain's past association with G. Gordon Liddy, one of the "plumbers" in the Watergate scandal. I just saw Alan "Skeletor" Colmes parrot this line in an exchange with a guest on Fox. How it is that Obamoids like Letterman and Colmes can compare someone who was duly convicted and served his time in prison for burglary with an unrepentant terrorist who spent years as a fugitive from the law, is beyond me. Apples and oranges are clearly indistinguishable to the Left.

If Obama Wins, They're Right

And it 'aint good.
US communists say their time has come

A rare bird in the political world, the US Communist Party is feeling rather smug in these days of capitalist turmoil.

At the party's New York headquarters on 23rd Street in Manhattan, regional party chairman Libero Della Piana, 36, laid out why he thinks Marxist-Leninism's time has finally come.

"We are very excited, we feel that we are at a turning point," Della Piana, an imposing half-Italian, half-African American with a pony tail, told AFP.

"We can afford to be less on the defensive for the first time since Ronald Reagan, and we can say our word in rebuilding America on a new basis, rebuilding a better world, instead of one based on the greed of the few."


There is no communist running for the White House and the Communist Party does not endorse Democrat Barack Obama.

Yet many staff here wore his picture on lapel buttons, while Republican John McCain was relegated to a box of tissues -- the tissues being pulled through his mouth.

Pepperdine University is Switzerland

Got the following in my e-mail box today. Perhaps it mistakenly went to my spam folder, but I'm sure a similar memo was distributed when the Caruso Family Chair and Professor of Constitutional Law at Pepperdine University, Douglas W. Kmiec, not only publicly endorsed Barack Obama for President, but has repeatedly defended said endorsement in some of the most mind bending ways imaginable.

RE: University Neutrality and the 2008 Election

DATE: October 15, 2008

As many of you are aware, a series of political ads on radio and TV has drawn much unwanted attention to Pepperdine. The ads, advocating for Proposition 8, feature one of our professors and lists his affiliation with the University.

I want to convey the following concerning this matter: Pepperdine University remains steadfastly neutral during election periods in all political campaigns, and this includes the debate over Prop 8.

We respect our faculty, staff, and students' right to be involved in the political process; indeed, we encourage engagement in the political process.

The Yes on 8 Campaign is using the Pepperdine name in a manner in which we do not approve. We asked the campaign to separate more clearly their partisan cause from our University's name, but they refused.

We ask all who are affiliated with the University to take care not to implicate the University in their respective political causes.

Finally, we ask our students, faculty, and staff to help clear up misunderstandings with those who may ask concerning Pepperdine's perceived role in a campaign in which it is not involved.

We appreciate your understanding, assistance, and patience during what has been a trying time for many at Pepperdine. I urge you to familiarize yourself with the 2008 candidates and issues, and vote your conscience.

Picking Up Where Obama Left Off

Congressman John "American Soldiers are Murderers" Murtha had this to say about the religion and gun clinging folks of Western Pennsylvania (via):

"There is no question that western Pennsylvania is a racist area."

Even if for the sake of argument that's true, what does it say about Murtha, whom Western Pennsylvanians have elected to Congress 17 times?
