Apparently Obama wasn't as gracious as Silky thought he should be the day Silky dropped out of the race. Obama later got into an argument with Elizabeth Edwards during a sit-down with Camp Silky because the Messiah's health care plan doesn't mandate insurance and care. On the flipside, Hillary had a cordial meeting with Camp Silky that went fairly smooth. From the sounds of it, Silky isn't gonna endorse either.
Seems to me that the NYMag is getting reeeeeal nervous about this primary, asking how the Democrat elite can talk down Hillary. (Hint guys: They can't) They lament the increasingly brutal primary fight. They then go on to speculate what Democrat leaders can talk down. Pretty pitiful how far down the line they go.
This Democrat primary has become supremely entertaining. No matter where you are on the McCain question, this fighting amongst the Democrats is good for conservatives, even if the Democrats can get their shit in order enough to offer a challenge or even beat McCain, odds are the Dems ripped each other up enough to prevent a deluge of Democrat gains.
So if you live in the Soviet of California, you may want to send your state-level congresscritters a friendly little note suggesting that you'll be very unhappy if you end up having to divert money from said restoration project and toward throwing their worthless Nanny asses out of office because they supported this stupid proposal. Or you could do the even smarter thing and flee from that Marxist hellhole.
Cuffy reminds us of a would be grim milestone.
Okay, if you're a Moronblogger, you have to try this widget out, it tells you what a foulmouthed little bastard you are. I have The Hostages beat, so that's a plus. However S. Weasel, bmac and Sean M all have me beat.

No wonder this asshole supports Death Taxes...
No wonder the Brits end up having to pull their own teeth.
More slimy elitism from the GOP leadership, which unfortunately makes it much, much harder to do this.
Stash looks at the excellent job the NIU police team did during the attack there, and they really did, Chief Grady had them about as trained and prepared for that type of disaster as they could be. The police did well with my school when it happened too(no one died at ours), but we've also seen poor responses to attacks at other schools as well. I agree with Stash and believe faculty, staff and students should be permitted to carry if they qualify to do so, its the best chance we have at limiting the damage of these type of attacks.

Stories like this make me a little less worried about making mistakes in reporting, or whatever the hell it is I do on this crappy blog.

"My economic plan is better than my bowling," Obama told fellow bowlers Saturday evening at the Pleasant Valley Recreation Center.
"It has to be," a man called out.
Welcome to PA, Barack. Though I'd definitely dispute Obama's claim above.
Of course, some eeeevil right winger had to be there to rain on the Hope'n'Change Parade,
Some Democrats worry the hard-fought, drawn-out race is already hurting the party's chances to win in November and Republicans hope they're right.
"I think it's a good competition, but I think the Democratic party is going to be blown apart," said Mark Irvin, a 49-year-old Republican who was bowling at the same time as Obama.
Mark, you mean you aren't an Obamican? Shhhh?
And when I say Obama sucked at bowling, I mean daaaayum he sucked, and there is video, so do hit that link.
The crowd of regulars pressed in to take pictures, get autographs, and rib him on his poor skills.
Obama did improve, nearly getting a strike in one frame, and in the seventh, picking up a spare, giving him a score of 37. Casey had a score of 71 after getting a strike, and Hart, with one less frame, racked up a score of 82.
Heh, maybe they should have put up some bumpers. It doesn't really qualify as a gaffe, it's just entertaining to see the Messiah utterly fail at something.

Let’s see how I compare to The Hostages. There’s no one more filthy and dirty than that lot:
Cuss level high - 24.5% cuss level.
Well, there is someone, other than bmac. I was surprised to learn that I actually eeked out The Hostages by a tenth of a point. Hey Hostages,
But the head of Potsdam's security, Mathias Tänzer, said the theatre had not properly prepared authorities for the play. "When we discovered the play was in the theatre's programme, we asked them what security measures they had in mind, but they wanted neither police protection nor checks of people at the door," he said. "We're monitoring the situation, and if any concrete threats are received we'll advise the theatre to cancel."
Initially I read this and thought, wait, the theatre didn't get security for this? Then I read that last phrase and thought maybe that was why they didn't want the Potsdam police involved with security? At first glance, it makes you think the theatre production team was being reckless and stupid about their security. Then you stop and think, maybe, but perhaps there's a reason they did it, and I'm thinking that last statement by Tänzer may be why. It may well be in the best interests of Potsdam's security forces to simply shut the production down in order keep things from being stirred up.
Something we in the US need to take from this and the Fitna story is that government is not going to automatically choose civil liberties and Constitutional rights if we engage in similar criticism of hostile persons and ideologies and face similar threats. Our Constitution is not a set of rights granted to us by our government, it is an acknowledgment by our government that those are our natural rights. Those rights are ours to preserve.
Governments will only go so far to defend your liberties. Once you move past what your government will do to protect your liberties, you will either be faced with a choice of self-censorship, or to use the fullest extent of your Constitutional rights and liberties to fend for yourself. This leaves Europeans in a much weaker position then we are in the US, particularly when it comes to self-defense.
We can look at Ayaan Hirsi Ali and the obscene and truly depressing amount of difficulty she had finding security from government in both the US and Europe as an example, and she is very high profile. Getting government sponsored security has to be even harder for a bunch of nameless people like the UK-based LiveLeak crew and a bunch of actors in Potsdam.

Vegeta, what does your scouter say about Kentucky's number of disenfranchised voters?
I do have to say, I'd never seen the titles that are cheap ripoffs of popular youth based movie/book franchises like the Harry Potter series and the gingerbread man from the Shrek movies. Some of the other ones are pretty good too. I may have to see if I can find an emulator so I can play Zombies Ate My Neighbors.
Said camp is actually more of a seminar for people getting into the porn industry. The seminar is an attempt to cash in on the rise of youtube type porn sites. They'll be doing a live shoot, and doing seminars on production and probably most important given the way the new user-generated sites are developing, the legal requirements and record-keeping aspects of the industry.
I wonder if in part this is an attempt by the industry to reign in the user-generated stuff? I have to think the whole established industry has to be nervous, not just because of the competition, but because if the user-generated stuff ends up in violation of law, they'll likely be on the bad end of a crackdown too, if not face more regulation.
Last time I wrote about Zimbabwe's hyperinflation, a burger cost $15 million Zimbabwe dollars...today, Purple Avenger lets us know a loaf of bread costs $25 million.

I love this,
"I don't doubt it because we are in Florida," the dog's owner, Deanne Gusler, said. "But in my opinion, if they know there is a chance a hawk will swoop down and get my dog, they need to be down there watching her."
What, so there will be witnesses next time? Because they aren't even going to get a chance to react before that thing is gone. Does she realize how friggin' fast hawks move? I had the opportunity to see one take a bluejay once. All I saw was a flash until it hit the jay, and even then I only got a brief look at the hawk, feathers were flying, the jay was letting off some horrible screech, and that was only for like two seconds. The jay went silent, then the hawk flew off with his meal, fast.
Birds of prey really are amazing to watch. It's one thing to see them on nature shows, but its another thing entirely to see one swoop and take prey in person.
Fortunately for the dogs, the kennel operators are smarter than the owner, and are putting up some fencing along the top of the pens to ward off hawks...poor hawks, no more overfed yappy housepets to snack on.
What, you aren't voting for Obama? Then you're a racist dick!

It is a big deal, maybe not in the amount of money it sucks up, but let's be honest...they're buying votes, and no one should be allowed to do it, whether its the GOP Bridge to Nowhere guy or notorious pork fiend John Murtha. Oh, and AT&T is hiring...maybe.
Awesome. A Coptic priest is making a real pest of himself for jihadis and islamists as he successfully converts Muslims in Egypt. Good job, Father Botros. His story is fascinating, be sure to read it to see how he does it.

Again, since CB is putting together the Moronosphere blogroll, it only seems fair to give her first dibs on linkage. Today we see a downside on swearing off pork, in this case, constituents in South Carolina want federal money for a cemetery for veterans, but their congressman has sworn off pork, and is sticking to that promise.
I say downside because this is a legit cause that is worthy of federal funds. He says he'll look for other means to get this cemetery built, I think setting up a charity fund, putting up a website and seeking donors would be a good start, particularly online, there are a lot of people who would be ready to jump on board to help with that.
And here is a worthy cause that I somehow missed yesterday in yesterday's links, but PattyAnn at The Hostages caught it.
Dan Abrams calls Kos unpatriotic!
The NYT discovers the Rickroll, gets pwn3d. Non Moronosphere link here, but I have to add this, someone at the LA Times finally sat Rick Astley down and asked what he thought of the Rickroll. He's actually really cool about it. I've gotta link it, don't I?
And how about an EPIC FAIL chaser, courtesy of the global warming cultists, who are watching their 15 minutes crumble under repeated bitchsmacks from new scientific findings. (As it turns out, this wasn't new at all...do check your sources people, its impossible for me to do that too)

Seriously, aren't the horrors known as the Daily Show DNC Pep Rally and Half Hour News Hour enough? Why must we continue to be bombarded with these crappy fake news shows?
Because of the sheer size and number of people, there will definitely be some changes to the daily linkfest. When the number of people was small, it was pretty easy to manage, and I could link a lot of the morons on my blogroll. Er, if I try to do that today with that huge-assed blogroll it'd take forever, and the post would be a mile long and completely unreadable, so the links featured are going to be more widely varied.
I'm still trying to strategerize and decide what I'll do, but the Moronosphere Network seems to be a popular idea, and I'll be sticking with it. Be sure to drop by and check in for updates.
Since she has done such a kickass job on making the blogroll, Conservative Belle gets first dibs on linkage today, and she continues to highlight politicians who are going kosher and swearing off pork money. Today she has three of them from Georgia, if you're looking into candidates to support, these might have potential.
Sean at Brea Canyon has some of the best title for stories...
Dan Abrams whines and seethes because of conservatives engaging in strategeric voting.

Speaking over the Easter weekend, he said: "The whole idea was to get people to think about issues. The comments were taken from another blog but I can't remember where they were from.Yeah, these politicians seem to love taking comments from other blogs...
"Also, I'm half-blind and missed out a word, I should have written 'consideration' in the first sentence. I'm sorry if it has caused any problems."
Obviously the guy is an obnoxious tool (and a cheesy, smarmy looking little dude), and should be drummed out of office, Labour and Liberal Democrats are calling for his resignation now, angrily declaring,
Medway Messenger: "If the conservatives care about their image they should expel Cllr Ward immediately.
"There is no place for this in mainstream politics."
Fellow Labour councillor Bill Esterson added: "It's the sort of thing Nazis did in Germany."
All that is true, and he deserves to be pushed out of office for that, but I have a question for these Labourites in particular, where were you in demanding that fellow Labourite Dawn Primarolo be shown the door for suggesting that teenage girls be forcibly sterilized? I've been looking for some sort of strong denunciation or call for Primarolo's resignation by politicians in the UK, but I haven't seen it.
That said, even if it was, forced sterilization seems to have some support in the UK, if you look at the Daily Mail article I link in my "More Fun With Airstrip One" piece (linked in the previous paragraph), you'll not only see a columnist supporting Dawn Primarolo's idea to force sterilization of teenage girls, if you look in the comments on that article, you'll see most of the commenters were solidly in favor of mass sterilization. Seems to me its not the policy they are opposed to, but the person who said it. Councilor Ward's comments are probably not that out of the mainstream in the UK, and the Labourites are being cynical in their condemnations.
Question, what the hell isn't wrong with the UK?
The best skins evah for your AR, and kudos for a PA politician who is going kosher and saying no to pork.
