"Who really cares about it being unconstitutional?"

Says council member about an illegal anti-2nd measure they're trying to pass in Pittsburgh.  I hope for Pittsburgh's sake the mayor talks the retards in council down or refuses to sign it before they waste a fortune in court costs and then demand and receive a federal bailout.  I'm really getting tired of this crap, if Philly and Pittsburgh don't want to respect our right to bear arms, they can fucking leave PA and join one of the Soviet States of New England.  Go join New York or Jersey.

It's Not Who Votes That's Important; Rather, It's Who Counts The Votes That Matters Most

Yeah, I probably butchered that quote, but this story of "election observers" in Minnesota triggered that thought.

A woman who worked for Al Franken earlier this week during the Senate recount in one county ended up counting ballots as a nonpartisan volunteer here Saturday in a recount that grew heated at times.

Maggie Vertin, who spent two days in Fergus Falls for Otter Tail County’s recount as an observer for Franken, was one of eight volunteers who assisted with the Wilkin County effort in Breckenridge.

Bob Westfall, who was in Breckenridge on Saturday as an observer for Norm Coleman, said he had concerns when members of his team learned a ballot counter had worked for Franken.

There's already an elementary school named after Dear Leader...

...in Hempstead, New York

Exit question:  How quickly would there have been a Narrative about creeping fascism if a public school had been renamed George W. Bush Elementary on November 21, 2000?

She was so happy until she found out it wasn't cocaine

Some animal rights activists threw flour on a fur-wearing Lindsay Lohan in Paris* on Saturday.

*The city, not the diseased celebritard.

Gee, why am I not the least bit surprised...

...by the results of this little experiment?

Catherine Vogt, 14, is an Illinois 8th grader, the daughter of a liberal mom and a conservative dad. She wanted to conduct an experiment in political tolerance and diversity of opinion at her school in the liberal suburb of Oak Park.

She noticed that fellow students at Gwendolyn Brooks Middle School overwhelmingly supported Barack Obama for president. His campaign kept preaching "inclusion," and she decided to see how included she could be.

So just before the election, Catherine consulted with her history teacher, then bravely wore a unique T-shirt to school and recorded the comments of teachers and students in her journal. The T-shirt bore the simple yet quite subversive words drawn with a red marker:

"McCain Girl."

"I was just really curious how they'd react to something that different, because a lot of people at my school wore Obama shirts and they are big Obama supporters," Catherine told us. "I just really wanted to see what their reaction would be."

Immediately, Catherine learned she was stupid for wearing a shirt with Republican John McCain's name. Not merely stupid. Very stupid.

"People were upset. But they started saying things, calling me very stupid, telling me my shirt was stupid and I shouldn't be wearing it," Catherine said.
Can we assume that it gets worse from there? Yes We Can!  Read the whole damn thing.

You know, we've been told over and over and over again by the punditocracy that Barack Obama was the post-partisan candidate (now, our post-partisan President-elect, yay!) who was going to unite us all in a new era of Hope and Change, but somehow, time after time, we've been treated to examples of how rabidly partisan and, frankly, uninterested in unity his cult-like followers are. Even, apparently, those who aren't even old enough to vote.

Funny, that. It's like they didn't get the message.

Our Post-Partisan President-Elect and his "new enforcer"

Barack Obama's new Chief of Staff sounds like quite a charming fellow. And by "quite a charming fellow," I mean a ruthless and bloodthirsty bastard:

One story, more than any other, sums up the intensity, loyalty and, at times, downright nastiness upon which Mr Emanuel's reputation is built.

At a dinner to celebrate President Clinton's first election victory, Mr Emanuel began to name those who he believed had earned his enmity. As he listed the names of those he saw as traitors, he grabbed a steak knife, stood up and began plunging the knife into the table and shouting "Dead! Dead! Dead!" after each name.

"When he was done, the table looked like a lunar landscape," one witness recalled. "It was like something out of The Godfather. But that's Rahm for you."

Nor was this an isolated incident – one pollster who fell out with Mr Emanuel received a rotting fish in the post as a warning not to cross him again.

Hope. Change. The kind of stuff you see in movies about the Mafia. Yeah.  We've got nothing to worry about.

We are the vandals we've been waiting for

Seems some need to be reminded what happens when you resist hope and change.  The sad part is that this is seriously minuscule stuff compared to the rampant credit card and donor fraud, ACORN's systematic cheating, coaching the disabled, handicapped and nursing care patients to vote for Obama, threats against student journalists and threats against TV stations that played NRA ads.   Let's not forget the Missouri truth squad and the state ordered snooping on Joe the plumber.

Hope, Change, broken glass

Can we vandalize the offices of our opponents? Yes We Can!

When Republican campaign volunteer Jean Taylor came to open up the Yolo County Republican Headquarters Friday morning, she was greeted by the sight of a broken window.

Overnight, an unidentified vandal threw what looked like a lead flower pot through the lower half of the glass window.

Kirby Wells, of the Yolo County Republican Central Committee, said the committee has contacted the Woodland Police Department. Because the window was broken with a flower pot, he said the police are hoping to find fingerprints on it.

The owner of the building has called to get the window replaced, but Taylor was told that it won't be fixed until Wednesday, the day after the election.

For Taylor, this is the culmination of months worth of rude phone calls, sign stealing and vandalism against members of the Republican Party.

"I've been through every election since Eisenhower in '56," Taylor said. "This is a very angry election."

Now, that's where you're wrong, Ms. Taylor. This election is all about Hope! And Change! And Hopeychanginess! You must be some kind of bitter clinger or something. And a racist, too. 

Probably.
