The dog that didn’t bark in the night

Obama’s online SA Truth Squad is out in full-force today, littering the comments throughout the conservative blogosphere wherever this video is to be found. The gist of their arguments is, “Yeah, but what about the wingnut excitement about Palin? What about little kids praying for Bush’s safety? What about rounding all you Trotskyites into re-education • Read More »

WWJD?

“What Would Jefferson Do?” Somali pirates have hijacked a Ukrainian cargo ship filled with T-72 tanks bound for Kenya. Or so they say. David Axe thinks the SEALS should go in and deal with the situation, but I kinda like Murdoc’s idea of a measured response: If not for the hostages, I’d say wait ‘em • Read More »

Blogs on the Bailout.

September 30, 2008 | By admindude | Comments Off on Blogs on the Bailout. | Filed in: Economics, Jon, Politics.

John Hawkins polled right-of-center bloggers on the bailout, including me, myself and yours truly. While my answers seemed utterly contradictory, they actually hold a flimsy internal logic. Here is how I answered: 1) Is the PRIMARY cause of this crisis…     A. Deregulation, market forces, and Wall Street?     B. Government interference in the market? • Read More »

Many parents bring their kids to church where they learn Bible stories and sing a few songs. Some other parents spend Sundays teaching their children hymns to Obama. According to its creators, the “Sing for Change” video is “a testament to our hope, unity, courage, joy and belief in the future represented by these children.” • Read More »

Monday Night Music Blogging Part Deux – Messiah

My comfort music. Put me squarely in the “Less is more” camp when it comes to Messiah. These clips are from the stunning 250th anniversary performance done in Dublin by The Academy of St. Martins in the Fields. Hallelujah: for the Lord God Omnipotent reigneth.

World ends: Women, minorities and art collectors hardest hit

September 29, 2008 | By admindude | Comments Off on World ends: Women, minorities and art collectors hardest hit | Filed in: Art, Humor, Kevin.

First they came for the domestic help, but that did not bother me as I could always order out. Then they came for the LearJet, but that did not bother me as I could always hitch a ride on Al Gore’s plane. Then they came for my collection of abstract impressionist drawings, and there was • Read More »

A moment of Zen.

September 29, 2008 | By admindude | 6 Comments | Filed in: Economics, Humor, Jon, MSM and New Media, Politics.

The dire financial news and depressing political polls have completely stressed me out. Not even Friday Night at the Kids’ Ballet eased the tension. (My six-year-old’s shout that “the silly man is dancing just like a girl” didn’t help either. Need to get her some culture, stat.) As I keep checking my blog feeds every • Read More »

Has Obama ever seen a fair election?

September 29, 2008 | By admindude | Comments Off on Has Obama ever seen a fair election? | Filed in: Books, Jon, Politics.

David Freddoso, author of The case against Barack Obama, explains how Obama won his first election: [H]e threw all of his opponents off the ballot on technical grounds, by challenging all their petition signatures. He had his campaigners go in and do this. They would update him nightly on their progress and tell him how • Read More »

Imagine if the MSM still practiced journalism.

Unsurprisingly, the media has the credit crisis narrative exactly wrong. Conservatives wanted to increase regulation of lenders, while liberals wanted their friends at Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac to keep lending money to people who could not repay. This video from four years ago shows who wanted to correct the issue before it ever became • Read More »

It was nothing. Really.

So what did the bracelet Obama brought for show and tell tonight REALLY say? Thanks to our crack team of experts, we’re able to give you this exclusive look at the actual bracelet Obama was wearing tonight. Hey, Obama never said WHICH troops he supports…

One last thing about tonight’s debate

September 27, 2008 | By admindude | 2 Comments | Filed in: Kevin, Politics.

I agree with George Will: By not stinking up the place like he did the last time he tried this, Obama’s the marginal winner of tonight’s debate. Tonite, he acted like a Presidential candidate should act on the campaign trail, not hemming and hawing his way through his answers like a college prof caught flat-footed • Read More »

Democrats agree – McCain’s the one!

First, it was Joe Biden. Then Bill Clinton. Now it’s Obama’s turn. If only McCain were as popular with his own party as he is with the Democrats….

The first four minutes defined their campaigning style

September 27, 2008 | By admindude | Comments Off on The first four minutes defined their campaigning style | Filed in: Kevin, Politics.

Obama: Here is what I have said I will do for you. It’s all about ME and what you are capable of, but only if you elect ME. McCain: We’re working together. That’s what the people of America want us to do, and I want to continue to work that way. Couldn’t be any clearer.

The science is settled: Environmentalists hate the planet.

I can’t even feign surprise: People who believe they have the greenest lifestyles can be seen as some of the main culprits behind global warming, says a team of researchers, who claim that many ideas about sustainable living are a myth. According to the researchers, people who regularly recycle rubbish and save energy at home • Read More »

Why settle for the lesser evil?

Kathleen Parker wants Sarah Palin to drop out as McCain’s Veep for the good of the country. Ok, but who would replace Palin as Veep? Hmmmn. Going for the fresh new face didn’t work, so we’d need someone who’s been around Washington for a while, and also someone outside who’s been outside mainstream GOP politics. • Read More »

What the huh?

September 26, 2008 | By admindude | Comments Off on What the huh? | Filed in: Economics, Jon, Politics.

So, McCain suspended his campaign in order to get a deal on the bailout. And there isn’t a deal yet. But McCain has rebooted his campaign and will debate anyway. I had assumed Maverick had a grand end-game in mind when he first suspended his campaign. Some counter-intuitive, fighter-jock, OODA-loop strategery. I sure hope he • Read More »

Spot the assault weapon!

br>Which one of these two guns is an “assault weapon” ? Wrong! They both are (or not). Both are Ruger 10/22‘s, the most popular rifle in America, great for plinking, varmit-hunting and target-shooting. The bottom rifles just have different stocks, different barrels and larger magazines. That’s it. They’re same gun: Same receiver, same action, same • Read More »

Putting it all in perspective

Yes, things are a tad scary right now.  More than a tad, actually.  Pray tonight that our politicians will stop acting like, well, politicians, and do what’s right for this country and it’s people.  Who has understood the mind of the LORD, or instructed him as his counselor?
