The Obamessiah: "That is not the Facebook page I knew."

Gen. Wesley Clark, passive aggressive Facebook status changer, is probably not sorry for denigrating Sen. McCain's military service.

I guess Obama was right

Women do only get 77¢ to a man's $1, in his campaign, anyway.

Somebody Do Something!*

Robert "What Opposition?" Mugabe has sworn himself in for another term after beating, murdering and otherwise intimidating his victorious opponents into silence.

As usual, the only solution that might save the thousands that will suffer is the only one not mentioned.  Fuck pacifists.

* - Something does not include military action, strong sanctions, frowning or otherwise being mean to poor, poor Mugabe and his junta.

You can't make this stuff up

I doubt any of you Morons will be headed to the Democrats' shindig in Denver this August, which is a good thing for a number of reasons, including their idiotic menus:

No fried chicken. No fried catfish. No fried green tomatoes. No fried okra. No fried anything.

In promoting healthy eating habits, the Democratic guidelines say every meal should be nutritious and include "at least three of the following colors: red, green, yellow, purple/blue and white."

"It's the new patriotism," says Denver Mayor John Hickenlooper, the driving force behind the greening of the Democratic convention.

I get that the Democrats' "new patriotism" involves green and yellow, but where does purple fit in?

Dueling douchebags

Olby and The Sockpuppeteer are having themselves a Nutroots slapfight (H/T).  Basically Greenwald is throwing a shitfit over the FISA bill.  He's pissed Obama is supporting it, and accuses Olby of being a partisan hack for allowing Obama to support the bill when Olby was screaming FASCISM!!! about it months before.  Olby claims the bill doesn't stop the Marxist Messiah from seeing their masturbatory fantasies of telecom execs facing show trials through.   Can they both lose?

Another successful launch of the missile defense system that Obama assures us is a boondoggle that will never ever work

Cuffy has the latest on our latest successful missile defense system test, and wonders if it helped Kim Jong-il rethink this whole nuclear aggression thing.

Rep. Charlie Rangle gets his ass kicked by Rep. Michelle Bachmann

They discussed the Alternative Minimum Tax on CNBC this morning.

I think the most surprising aspect of this is that CNBC still exists.

He's not the Barack Obama he knew a few years ago, I'm sure

Jim Geraghty points out that Sen. Obama used to think that town hall events were the best part of his job...that is until John McCain wanted to appear at one with him.

Because Arianna Huffington says so, that's why!

Who should replace Tim Russert on "Meet the Press"?  Keith Olbermann, of course.

Why?  Because he challenges "conventional wisdom."

Can you imagine how much worse California would be today if she'd won the 2003 recall election?

Does Obama have an Elian problem?

Apparently there are some connections to the Elian Gonzalez affair at the Obama campaign that should alarm Cuban-Americans in Florida:

Having two top advisers who played key roles in the episode — Greg Craig, who represented Gonzalez's father in Cuba, and Eric Holder, then a Clinton administration deputy attorney general when federal agents stormed the Miami home of Gonzalez’s relatives to remove the then-6-year-old and return him to Cuba — Obama now finds himself on the wrong side of an emotional issue in a battleground state.
But I suppose the Obama campaign shouldn't worry about this.  After all, the whole Elian Gonzalez issue was just another distraction from Republicans trying to take the focus off the real issues:
[Obama spokesperson Freddy] Balsera believes that Cuban American voters will decide that the 2008 race “has nothing to do with Elian Gonzalez or Greg Craig.”

“The Elian [Gonzalez] scuttlebutt was a Republican stunt, quite frankly,” he said. “I’m not denying that it was effective before, but people are wise to that trick.”
Yes.  Trying to keep a young boy from being sent back to a hellhole like Cuba was all part of an diabolical 8-year plan for John McCain to win the White House in 2008.  Rove, you magnificent bastard.

The Obamessiah: "I voted for it before I didn't show up to vote for it."

In his first national ad, the only bill Barack Obama can point to that he supports any aspect of the military is an authorization bill for wounded troop funding that passed 91-3.

Oh, and those 6 people who didn't vote?  His Holiness was one of them

The Obamessiah: The GOP will run on their hatred of black people.

Back it up with some facts, asshole:

"It is going to be very difficult for Republicans to run on their stewardship of the economy or their outstanding foreign policy," Obama told a fundraiser in Jacksonville, Florida. "We know what kind of campaign they're going to run. They're going to try to make you afraid.

"They're going to try to make you afraid of me. He's young and inexperienced and he's got a funny name. And did I mention he's black?"

If that's not the language of healing and unity, then I don't know what is.  Make sure you head to the link to read the rest of Obama's thoughts. 

I'm not surprised that the Democrats are throwing out accusations like this.  What does kind of shock me is that Obama himself is using this line of attack, instead of leaving to to surrogates and the Democratic National Committee.  What we are witnessing here is Sen. Obama finally secure in his belief that he is a secular Messiah. 

I think that his arrogance could lead to his downfall.  This type of rhetoric will shore up his base, but I can't imagine it would help in winning over independents or, ahem, Obamacans.  He's allowed his hubris to build up so much that he doesn't even blink an eye when it comes to violating federal law on the campaign trail. 

Exit question:  It's a good thing that McCain reprimanded the North Carolina GOP over their Jeremiah Wright ad, eh?  Otherwise the Obama campaign could have complained that the GOP was race-baiting or something.  Heh.

Obama wants minorities behind him...just not...err...behind him

Just another bold move by the Obama campaign to prevent right-wing, Clinton-supporting bloggers like Larry Johnson from spreading any more unwanted rumors, I'm sure:

Two Muslim women were prohibited from sitting behind the podium at Barack Obama’s Monday rally in Detroit, apparently so their headscarves would not appear in photographs with him, according to a report Wednesday in the Politico.com.

The Washington-based Web site reported that Obama campaign volunteers said the women could not wear the hijabs behind the candidate, though they gave different reasons for the rule.

One volunteer said that one of the women could not be seen on TV with Obama “because of the political climate and what’s going on in the world and what’s going on with Muslim Americans,” according to the Muslim woman’s friend.

The Detroit metro area has a large Muslim population loyal to the Democratic Party, and that having at least one Muslim woman behind Obama would just represent the area more accurately.  They've got a meme and, dammit, they've got to run with it!

(And yes, I do know that the campaign has already apologized.  But I am still outraged!  OUTRAGED!)

The most ethical Congress in history, take 2.

Guess who's running for re-election!

U.S. Rep. William Jefferson, a Louisiana Democrat facing trial on corruption charges, has announced that he will seek re-election to a tenth term.

Jefferson made his announcement Tuesday in a news release that touted his experience and portrayed him as someone who still wields power in Congress despite the corruption case against him.

But who cares, we have to keep fighting the real enemy

Hope!tm and Change!tm and...ummm...Taxes!

Good things come in threes, ya know. 

Americans for Tax Reform have put together a chart comparing the tax policies of John McCain and Barack Obama with the current rates. 

Bottom line: If Obama is elected I will go from being "poor" to being "very poor."

For domestic policy, he'll no doubt be watching "Dora the Explorer"

Who cares if Sen. Obama isn't the most experienced person when it comes to foreign policy.  At least he has good foreign policy advisors, right?  Right?  Wrong

Richard Danzig, who served as Navy Secretary under President Clinton and is tipped to become National Security Adviser in an Obama White House, told a major foreign policy conference in Washington that the future of US strategy in the war on terrorism should follow a lesson from the pages of Winnie the Pooh, which can be shortened to: if it is causing you too much pain, try something else.

Mr Danzig told the Centre for New American Security: “Winnie the Pooh seems to me to be a fundamental text on national security.”

He spelt out how American troops, spies and anti-terrorist officials could learn key lessons by understanding the desire of terrorists to emulate superheroes like Luke Skywalker, and the lust for violence of violent football fans.

Wow.  You'll note that this is the same Richard Danzig that the Telegraph seems to think is on the short list of military advisors Obama may tap for the vice presidency.  One can dream. 

I know this is obvious, but can you even imagine if, in 1999-2000, Condi Rice had said something this retarded?  Even in a pre-9/11 society, I can't imagine that something like this would have gone over well. 

Head over to the Moron-in-Chief's for some snark and a photoshop.

Tax revolts in Pennsylvania and Maine

In western Pennsylvania, a second Whiskey Rebellion is er, brewing*, as Allegheny County Executive Dan Onorato is facing a very angry constituency after the county imposed a 10% hike on drinks and six packs sold in bars and restaurants.  Credit where it's due, the reporter noted Onorato is a Democrat in the sentence after mentioning him by name. 

Bar and restaurant owners were obviously pissed, as were their patrons, there are now signs that say "Dan Onorato not welcome here", the tax is being referred to as the Onorato Tax, there are jokes and even a song goofing on him.  Onorato says that the hike was to pay for public transportation, and it was the tax on drinks or a property tax hike. 

The tax is facing a petition for it's repeal.  Onorato says the tax is getting collected, whether it's a property tax or this drink tax, and is planning a referendum to make voters choose.  Maybe they should choose to unseat Onorato when he's up for election and put someone in who will cut costs...

Slublog notes there is now a petition to repeal the tax hike on alcohol, bottled water and soda that Democrats in Maine passed to pay for Democrat Governor Jim Baldacci's Dirigo health care program.  The Democrats in the Maine legislature literally passed the hikes in the middle of the night in order to try and avoid an uproar...looks like it didn't work.  Maine voters are pissed, and are signing the petition in numbers.  Like Onorato, Democrats and their allies are throwing out excuses for their tax hikes, and are demagoguing the issue to try and dissuade voters to not support the repeal effort.

*Yes, I know whiskey is distilled, but I had to make the obvious joke
