Taking credit

Amidst all of the happy talk following the death of Usama bin Laden, there is a telling tale of the true nature of our dear President, Il Duce.  In his press conference Sunday night, he made a big show of highlighting his decisiveness and his role in the military action.

Today, at my direction, the United States launched a targeted operation against that compound in Abbottabad Pakistan.

Uh, yeah…about that

The operation was at this time effectively unknown to President Barack Obama or Valerie Jarrett and it remained that way until AFTER it had already been initiated. President Obama was literally pulled from a golf outing and escorted back to the White House to be informed of the mission. Upon his arrival there was a briefing held which included Bill Daley, John Brennan, and a high ranking member of the military. When Obama emerged from the briefing, he was described as looking “very confused and uncertain.” The president was then placed in the situation room where several of the players in this event had already been watching the operation unfold. Another interesting tidbit regarding this is that the Vice President was already “up to speed” on the operation. A source indicated they believe Hillary Clinton had personally made certain the Vice President was made aware of that day’s events before the president was. The now famous photo released shows the particulars of that of that room and its occupants. What that photo does not communicate directly is that the military personnel present in that room during the operation unfolding, deferred to either Hillary Clinton or Robert Gates. The president’s role was minimal, including their acknowledging of his presence in the room.

At my direction? Uh-huh.

One need only take a look at the photograph of the situation room to know what Il Duce’s role in the event was. It’s standard meeting protocol; the people who are directly involved in decision making have a seat at the table, and everyone else grabs a chair where they can. Vice President Hairplugs and Succubus of State Clinton have a seat at the table; they are in on the decision making. Obama’s seat indicates spectator status.

As if we should be surprised…

The Incredible Lightness of Being Obama [updated]

Our president is a flyweight boxing with heavyweights. He’s totally outgunned and outclassed.

Not to mention, Obama is a fucking moron with a sub-basement level IQ.

“The Obama administration will scrap the controversial missile defense shield program in Eastern Europe, a senior administration official confirmed to CNN Thursday.

The comment followed similar statements from officials in Poland and the Czech Republic — where key elements of the system were to be located — but was the first confirmation from an American official.

Vice President Joe Biden earlier refused to confirm to CNN that the George W. Bush-era plan was being shelved.

But he did explain the logic of doing so, saying Iran — a key concern for the United States — was not a threat.”

And as for Biden, my turds have more brains than that pathetic imbecile does.

I’m sorry Poland, I’m sorry Czech Republic, I apologize to all of eastern Europe: I didn’t vote for the guys.

Here’s Obama’s new plan to defend eastern Europe from Russia and Iran.


Awesome display of presidential “gravitas” no? Contrast and compare.


Obama-Biden haven’t got a chance against this guy because they haven’t got a pair of balls between them. Having the greatest military in the history of human civilization means nothing with garbage like these guys in power.

Well, the leftards have a few million south-east asians’ blood on their hands after Vietnam and the ensuing Pol Pot, so what are a couple of million more eastern Europeans?

On, and don’t get me started about how far out in the cold Israel is now.

I would be a better president than Obama, and trust me, that is one shit-suckingly sad state of affairs.

I could fucking vomit.

UPDATE – bing

For in depth analysis of the Obama photo, look no further.

Obama does Monty Python… Healthcare

I stumbled across this filmclip over at Richards 3 beers later blog, now is it just me or does Obamas “Dr Placebo” shtick have undertones of a certain Monty python skit.

Watch and compare.

1 st Dr Obama effectively saying “your mother is to old, she should take pills and wait to die…”


The Python clip, Dr Obama comes in at around 2:30 into it.


“That’s what I’m here for, to reassure you”… FFS there is a case for elderly to have do not resuscitate, IF THEY CHOOSE, but if they, or their family can afford it, why shouldn’t they get the best medical care they can afford?

Obama is busy looking at it as a zero sum game. If granny has an operation, then little Billy the orphan cant have one. If you believe that crap then what hes saying is justifiable.

However isn’t the reality that the full fee operation (Im assuming granny is paying her own way)is making the hospital/surgeon/employees, quite a bit of money. That money is taxed,  a portion ending up in government coffers anyway. This allows for little Billy to be treated (maybe not top tier, but he will receive something) The hospital can justify training more doctors, opening more wards etc, because its making money. All this is generating more availability of health services, as long as you can pay.

Why shouldn’t your health care be linked to the amount of money you set aside for it?

Why should it be left to a faceless bureaucrat to make the decision?

Can someone tell me what the government does run well?

Can someone tell me what the government does run well?

Oh great: North Korean nuclear news

Old news but being reiterated today; North Korea has between five and eight nuclear warheads. This is according to Daniel Pinkston, of the International Crisis Group, who quotes un-named agencies (but probably the US). The missiles can be loaded onto Rodong missiles capable of reaching Japan. If true, Japan may go nuclear, too.

(H/T). US Congressional report here (16-page PDF).

Is this one of the international crises Biden was referring to?

One query: the first link in this post is from 2006, and quotes US sources. The second link quotes un-named sources. Anything to declare, President Obama?

Biden was right!!

It galls me to say it but hairplugs got at least one thing right about Obama.


“Mark my words,” Biden told donors at a Seattle fund-raiser Sunday night.

“It will not be six months before the world tests Barack Obama like they did John Kennedy. The world is looking. We’re about to elect a brilliant 47-year-old senator president of the United States of America.

“Watch. We’re going to have an international crisis, a generated crisis, to test the mettle of this guy.

“And he’s going to need help . . . to stand with him. Because it’s not going to be apparent initially; it’s not going to be apparent that we’re right.”

Were screwed!

Were screwed!

Hellloooo Vlad the lad.

Not sure whether this is a good thing or a bad thing… or just plain funny.

You Yanks with Joe “the mouth” Biden?

Ha! Yet another example of our head cheesedick kicking your head poodle’s ass.

Can’t really complain. After all, honesty in politics is a rare thing.

McCain’s Perfect Choice for a Running Mate: Governor Sarah Palin

While most of the pedantic, two-dimensional, inside-the-box-thinking, conservative political hacks are touting Tom Ridge for the slot (Not a bad guy, but…), David Freddoso notes a far superior choice has been proposed: The Republican Governor of Alaska, Sarah Palin.

I believe this is a truly inspired idea. Gov. Palin ran as an anti-corruption outsider, and handily defeated a corrupt and entrenched Republican political machine. Plus, at 44, she would almost totally wipe the “age issue” McCain has off the slate, and since Obama is only two years her senior, there is no way they could attack her for her youth and inexperience: She has much more executive experience than Senator Obama has.

Not to mention the fact that, she’s a gorgeous woman who exudes mass quantities of charisma…


and has a super-solid family life.


Dibs on the eldest daughter! LOL!

This inspired choice would allow McCain to actually capitalize on his “maverick” persona, as Gov. Palin shook Alaska politics to the core: She’s a charming, charismatic woman, but she can also play with the big boys and kick ass.

What say ye?

UPDATE: Things are looking optimistic!

UPDATE II: Welcome to all 4500 8000 40,000 in the past few hours (so far!) people visiting us from Google. We’re a fairly opinionated right-wing blog, and you might like to take a look at our “About” page. You might also be interested in our other coverage of Sarah Palin and whether she becomes a prospective Vice President of the United States. You can find this coverage here and here. Personally, I hope she does, but you can feel free to debate the idea in comments below. All first comments are moderated, but unless you either insult or use severe profanity (and I mean severe by my standards, which generally only means the C U Next Tuesday word or the implication that someone has had a rather enjoyable erotic experience with someone who has borne a child), however if you come up with a new one, I may simply delete your comment. I, and all other contributors to this blog are more than fair in what we permit.

UPDATE III: Nayr Drahcir, don’t bother even trying. You will not be published.

UPDATE IV: A lot of people must like Palin.

UPDATE V: More coverage of Governor Sarah Palin and a theme song here.

UPDATE VI: Funniest observation on the announcement yet: “Put Obama and Palin on a basketball court one on one. Winner takes all!”

UPDATE VII: [spot_the_dog] No, we do not have any pictures of “Sarah Palin + Naked,” nor do we have any of “Sarah Palin + Swimsuit.” In the past 24 hours, there have been 157 separate searches on this site for “Sarah Palin Swimsuit,” and 161 separate searches for “Sarah Palin Naked.” I repeat, we have no bathing suit, swim suit, bikini, or naked pictures of Sarah Palin. What kind of people do you think we are, anyway? 😉

UPDATE VIIa: [spot_the_dog] Ace has noticed a similar search phenomenon on his blog and has a theory…

UPDATE VIII: A well-rounded view of the selection of Sarah Palin for the Vice President Nomination can be found here.

UPDATE IX:  We got it!  YES!  Nude photo of Sarah Palin right here!  (C’mon.  You know you want to click.)

Change in Washington?

Obama said he was going to bring change to Washington. So talk me through this one Obi. How does having Clinton as Secretary of State, Biden as VP and Gates as Defense Secretary amount to ‘change’?

Was it those pesky CIA daily briefings?


A Net Loss For Team America

Barack Obama has accepted the duty as President of the United States, and did so with a speech that I could have sworn came right out of Marx’s teachings. Words like “sacrifice”, “giving”, and “patriotism” are being thrown around like he means them in the good context they should be used in. Obama is speaking well, but his words sound quite hollow.

On the other hand, John McCain gave one of the most excellent speeches I have heard in this campaign. He admitted his faults, yet didn’t deny them, and he was gracious in defeat. There should be more men like him.

The next four years will be very interesting.

Waking? Sleeping? Pajamas.

Via Michael Ledeen, in his Pajamas.

What makes me angriest: that there is no outcry against election fraud; that the media have become pure political instruments; that our “educational system” has produced an ignorant electorate.

Ahh, yes, the ‘youth’ vote. Saw them on CNN last night. Well, anyway, this ‘youth’ thinks a bit differently. Hopefully you US guys have had enough time to see through Obama, time Aussies didn’t really get – and not helped by the Oz media either, which is substantially Leftist. Ditto?

Let’s hope not.

Never before has the ignorance of the electorate been so intensely cultivated as in this election. We all know that major publications and broadcasters have simply refused to report news, and what they did report was spun politically. And among the stories they are not reporting, is the massive electoral fraud, from the “where is all that money coming from?” to the “how dare state officials refuse to verify the identity of voters?” one, to the refusal to report, day by day, on Joe Biden’s scandalously inept, incompetent, and often meretricious campaign. Instead, they obsess on every real and imagined misstatement by Sarah Palin, who for me has been the most attractive of the four candidates.

American exceptionalism rests upon independent thinking, pride in community and heritage, and disdain for ivory tower intellectuals combined with admiration for self-help and achievement. My greatest fear is that these values are going to be trashed over and over again the next few years, and we will have to fight it very fiercely.

Seems so. There’ll still be lots to do come Wednesday, no matter which way the cookie crumbles.

Two Predictions of a McCain Win Tomorrow

From Bob Krumm and Vox Day.

Says Krumm:

“Here is my prediction. Wednesday morning you can grade me on how well I did.

Arizona: Don’t believe the hype. John McCain is in no danger of doing an Al Gore and losing his home state. McCain by ten.

Colorado: Bush won here by almost five. Barack Obama thinks that, along with Iowa, the Rocky Mountain State is his best chance for a pickup. The youth vote in Boulder and Denver will be up this year. So too will be the military vote in Colorado Springs and the rancher/farmer/landowner vote everywhere else. Net effect: some change in the Democratic direction, but not enough to swing the state. McCain by two.

Florida: McCain will do better with Jewish and older voters than did Bush four years ago when he won the state 52-47. They turn out to vote. The youth vote that Obama depends on will vote just like it always has in the Sunshine State: not very much. McCain by four…

Nationwide: Going in to election day, Obama will be leading 47% to 44% with 7% undecided. McCain wins the undecided almost 5:2. Increased support from black voters in the three Ds (DC, Detroit, and the Deep South) along with gains in other reliably red states runs up Obama’s popular vote totals, but adds nothing to the electoral bottom line. The only states he turns in his favor are two very white ones (Iowa 2% black and Nevada 6% black), providing evidence against the charge of racism. But facts don’t get in the way of the story line that racism decided the race.

Final popular vote tally: Obama 49.2%, McCain 48.8%, Other 2%.

Electoral votes: Obama 244, McCain 273, Pennsylvania’s 21 TBD.

Wednesday the 5th won’t be pretty.”

I think he’s being too cautious. 🙂

Day says:

“The first is my five-point rule. In general, if a Democrat leads by less than five points in the polls, he loses. I was planning to run the numbers today, but the Baseball Savant already did so I don’t have to.”

Again, too cautious, but this is exactly true: The polls always favor the Democrat, and they’re often wrong. I’m prepared to be disappointed, but I feel good about our chances tomorrow. I think, personally, that McCain will win in an epic surprise by a comfortable margin.

Change We Can Believe In: Prohibitively High Energy Prices

Barack Obama is a stupid fuck. The US has the largest coal reserves in the world, but The Zer0 doesn’t want us to use them. Instead, he wants to impose a punitive cap-and-trade ponzi scheme that would make it impossible for the US to become energy-independent, as well as enriching nobody but the government.

What an ass. I hope the people in West Virginia, Pennsylvania, Ohio, and Kentucky are listening to this lunatic, because he want’s to kill thousands upon thousands of jobs in those states, not to mention jacking electricity rates up on everyone in this country except for his constituency, which are non-productive welfare recipients who do nothing other than suck on the government teat and breed more who do the same… all on the taxpayer’s dime.

Obama is an idiot, and idiots in high places are dangerous.


Biden is a Pussy, Part Two

Plugs can’t take any heat, and if he gets any, he takes his ball and goes home. This makes two.

Get that? Within minutes of the end of the interview, serial liar Plugs Biden told the Obama campaign to freeze out this news station. This is the kind of shit we have to look forward to under an Obama-Biden administration. Dissent and criticism won’t be tolerated, it will be crushed by the heavy hand of government.

Typical leftist shit-sacks.

And you thought it was ridiculous before…

US Vice Presidential hopeful Sarah Palin has undergone a titillating transformation to become America’s first political porn star – Serra Peylin.

What next?

What next?

I can’t really mouthe off and say this is just another Leftard act of creepy-weird. Who knows? Maybe some porn stars actually do vote Republican but I mean, really, could this get any sillier?

More (possibly NSFW)

Meanwhile, there’s hope for Australia yet. More of us would rather have her over for a barbie. Suck on that Mr 2% Plugs.

Because Especially Politicians Deserve Outright Mocking

In the spirit of fairness, and because I believe that if Sarah Palin is being subjected to huge amounts of criticism about things she’s said and done in the past, Joe Biden should suffer the same fate.

So I visited my mate Google, and did a search for things Joe Biden has said. This guy is stupider than I first thought. Almost weapons grade stupid.

“I mean, you got the first mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy.”

Yeah dude, because no other African-American in history has ever cleaned up all nice and gone to university, got an education, and succeeded extraordinarily well in life. Right? You. Dickhead. That must surely get an award for being one of the stupidest things you’ve ever said.

Sense Spoken

I don’t agree with everything the man in this video clip says, but he says it well and makes his points clear. It’s worth a watch.

Does anyone know who he is?

This video, focusing mostly on abortion, is also worth watching. Excellent points are made.

I’m not sure who he is either.

The Vice-Presidential Debate: My Wrap Up (Updated)

The line that spoke to me most came from Republican Vice-Presidential nominee Sarah Palin:

“I think we need more of Main Street Wasilla in Washington, so that these people, these middle-class, hard-working people are heard in Washington.”

Contrast this to the line that almost made me cry with laughter:

“I go down Union Street, and speak to folks in Home Depot…”

On to the serious stuff, I think Palin nailed this debate. She spoke in a way that showed that she’s far outside Washington circles, using some very homely expressions such as “doggone it”, “ya”, “Say it ain’t so Joe”, and she sounded nowhere near as rehearsed as Joe Biden, plus Governor Palin didn’t rely on her notes almost every sentence. Certainly, she looked at notes (although hers were clearly in dot point form, whereas Biden’s can’t possibly have been) yet she spent the majority of her time making eye contact with the camera.

The Fix is In: Partisan Leftist Hack Gwen Ifill to “Moderate” VP Debate

I’ve taken quite a bit of time to read several sources on this controversy so that I can boil it down to the salient points… OK, point. There is only one salient point.

1] Gwen Ifill has written a book called, “The Breakthrough: Politics and Race in the Age of Obama.”

The publisher’s release date is to be the day the next president is sworn in to office. So, if Obama loses, what do you think her book sales will amount to? Oh sure, she’ll still sell a few if McCain wins, but she and her publishers are obviously banking on an Obama win.

Since there is only one salient point, there is also only one pertinent question: How the Samuel B. Hell does this fact NOT instantly disqualify her, since she has an obvious and undeniable conflict of interest?!

I’ve seen Ifill work before, and she doesn’t seem a particularly malicious example of leftist partisanship in the media – see Olberman – more like your run of the mill deluded, indoctrinated, and brainwashed 90 IQ hack who owes her position to affirmative action, but still… this is very far beyond simply ridiculous.

Here’s the money quote from the above linked article.

“Fox News commentator Greta Van Susteren reported the McCain campaign didn’t know about the book.

“It simply is not fair – in law, this would create a mistrial,” she said.”


EPIC FAIL: 700B Credit Bailout Bill Voted Down by House – UPDATED

This is the best of all possible outcomes, my friends. I am beside myself with glee. Why? Stay with me here.

The Democrat party controls the House, and yet, they couldn’t pass the bill.

“WASHINGTON (AP) – In a stunning vote that shocked the capital and worldwide markets, the House on Monday defeated a $700 billion emergency rescue for the nation’s financial system, ignoring urgent warnings from President Bush and congressional leaders of both parties that the economy could nosedive without it.”

So, since the Democrats control the house, they should have been able to pass the bill on a party-line vote, correct? Wrong. 40% of democrats voted against the bill, and the Republican coalition fell apart, partly because of this divine gift of a speech that Nancy Pelosi gave before the vote.

This is the worst Speaker of the House in History: Remember, her approval rating has been as low as 14%. This time, however, she helped the Republicans snatch victory from the jaws of defeat. You see, the Democrats only wanted the Republican votes as a fig leaf to hide behind, and now hey have nothing whatsoever to hide their shame.

The Democrats who voted against the bill had an entirely different agenda than the Republicans who voted against it. Pelosi’s partisan beat-down forced enough Republicans to do the right thing to derail the bill, but for the Democrats, it was the lack of leftist provisions and slush money for leftist groups like ACORN that made them vote against it. Strange bedfellows, indeed.

So, the Democrats will have to offer up a far worse, more leftist version of the bill now; one that will be able to appease the hard left and pass on a party-line vote. That’s exactly what they are already planning to do.

“WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Democratic leaders in the U.S. House of Representatives are going to try to move another financial rescue bill after a $700 billion plan was rejected in a House vote, a senior House Democrat said on Monday.”

The thing nobody is talking about is that investigations are going to happen over this mess, and heads are going to roll. Almost all of those heads will have “D is for Democrat” on their foreheads. The first subpoenas have already been issued.

“NEW YORK (Reuters) – Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, the U.S. mortgage finance giants that were taken over by the government this month, said on Monday they were subpoenaed for documents as part of a federal grand jury investigation into their accounting.”

Of course, the stock market has nose-dived.

“NEW YORK (AP) – Wall Street plunged precipitously Monday, at one point sending the Dow Jones industrials down more than 735 points as investors feared that the failure of the government’s financial rescue plan in the House will force the country into a worsening credit and economic credit risis.[sic- Beef]”

This isn’t the “worst” of it, however, as I’m virtually certain that McCain-Palin have no chance of winning the election in this climate – seriously, it would take a real Deus ex Machina miracle for the Republican ticket to win now, and I don’t see it happening – but even that has long term upsides.

Let Obama and Biden preside over the hearings, commissions, investigations, prosecutions, and convictions of their fellow party members. If McCain and Palin do it, everything will be, “A RethugliKKKan Fascist, Racist, Witch Hunt” /leftard. If Obama and Biden do it, it may lead to the mighty governmental collapse I’ve been praying for for the past ten years, and then the Democrats may need a generation or more to get back into power. And, trust me, they won’t look, sound, or smell like the Democrats of today when they do. And that, my friends, would be a very, very good thing.

So, be of good cheer. I am.

UPDATE: Carl Rove, the magnificent bastard of the right, and ultimate boogeyman of the left, explains the vote to John Gibson, blow by blow.

Rove is brilliant.

Guest Post: Al MacLeod

My favorite Tizona commenter, Al MacLeod, just hit the proverbial nail on the head, IMO, so I thought I’d front-page his ass. 🙂

“What’s in a Poll? I am watching all the pundits analyzing the polls to death like chickens with their heads cut off..all in a frenzy, but why? I said it back i last Spring and I will say it again…I believe the country is in for a shocker like 1980. I haven’t changed my stance one bit, and in fact am quite pleased(although not surprised) that things are going as I thought they would.

Many do not remember that Carter was actually ahead of Reagan in the polls until the final days..virtually on the eve of the election. Here is a excerpt below from Time Magazine after the 1980 election dated December 1, 1980.

“The other lesson of the polling season was that the experts have by no means perfected the questions or the techniques that enable them to predict how undecided or unhappy voters will go on Election Day.”

“One puzzling phenomenon that the pollsters have not been able to cope with, or even explain thoroughly, is the so-called closet Reaganite. For whatever reason, people clearly voted for Reagan in this election who had said they would not.”

I am absolutely convinced that this is going to be an almost idential repeat of history. Let’s look at some similarities. Ted Kennedy took on his own incumbent President after only one term…when Roger Mudd asked him why he was running, he didn’t have an answer..he just mumbled something (probably..”I can use a drink right now”).

But, despite Kennedy’s mumbling and not really knowing why he was running against Carter he actually did better than many expected. The scuttlebutt at the time was that Kennedy’s friend and Father image, the late Speaker of the House Tip O’neil, was outraged at the Carter White House always stonewalling him and Carter’s Chief of Staff Hamilton Jordan-whom O’neil would always refer to as “Hamilton Jerkin”, was always hanging the phone up on him-The Speaker no less!

Kennedy took Carter right down to the wire and right into the the convention..where he was “nice” giving Carter all of his remaining delegates (after he finally lost the nomination of course)..and he finally put a good speech together at the convention that added another nail in Carter’s coffin. Carter was beat up bad and was worse for wear after the convention. Carter would later write in his book that Kennedy had a vendetta” against him and blamed his loss to Reagan on Kennedy (Sure Jimmy).

Without writing several more paragraphs, I think it is pretty obvious that Hillary Clinton was the Kennedy this time around..and Obama was the Carter. However, this time it’s even worse. The female factor was not present then and no one thought Kennedy got screwed like Hillary was (except Carter probably thought Kennedy screwed him pretty good).

Other similarities were the age differences as you see now in this election and of course there are always the intangibles..which is key here, as it was in the election of 1980.

Does this mean that we just sit and do nothing assuming it will just turn out the way it did in 1980 with an overwhelming landslide for Republicans? Absolutely not! We must Attack, Attack, and Attack some more!!
Many of Reagan’s supporters, the “Silent Majority” and “Democrats for Reagan”, much like today with McCain’s supporters, attacked in silent ways..others in not so silent ways.

Does a Chess Grandmaster let up even a little bit in a “dead won” position?..Absolutely not! Does a top rated boxer let up and coast the last few rounds to what he thinks will be an “easy decision” because he is ahead?…He better not!!

So my fellow right wingers..I say only this..We Will win by a Landslide victory in November..But..Only if we keep Attacking, Attacking, and then Attack some more!!!!”

I couldn’t agree more. I don’t think the polls mean dick this cycle, and I’ve thought for quite a wile that 2008 will be a McGovern-scale blowout of O’Biden by McPalin.

As “ze Doctor Dminor” would say, Al, “Ve haff veys uff making you talk!” LOL!


I think we can forego the three par rule this time round. – bingbing

A reminder…

Speaking of patriotism...

Speaking of patriotism...

True, that pic.

A Democrat’s idea of patriotism. Punish those who were more successful and shun the flag, the symbol of everything that is the United States of America.

To “Plugs” Biden, The IRS Ripping Off the Successful is Patriotism

Get a load of the gaffe-o-matic nincompoop in action, folks. After subconsciously channeling Benny Hinn by telling a paralyzed Senator to stand – BE HEALED! – (Seriously, you need to watch that video, it is Biden at his best), Slow Joe proves again that he has no mojo by telling the “rich” that paying more taxes is patriotic.

I shit you not.

“WASHINGTON – Democratic vice presidential candidate Joe Biden said Thursday that paying more in taxes is the patriotic thing to do for wealthier Americans…

‘We want to take money and put it back in the pocket of middle-class people,’ Biden said in an interview on ABC’s “Good Morning America.”

Noting that wealthier Americans would indeed pay more, Biden said: ‘It’s time to be patriotic … time to jump in, time to be part of the deal, time to help get America out of the rut.'”

What does O’Biden call rich? $250,000 per year. A dual income family in NYC can break that easy, and with a couple kids to care for, they are not “rich,” trust me.

Never mind that the top 5% of earners already pay 85% of the fucking income taxes, what I find breathtaking is that Plugs is so shamelessly touting his ticket as pure, evil, socialists!

“We want to take money and put it back in the pocket of middle-class people.”

Let’s parse this:

“We want to take money…” That’s theft, pure and simple, which is why the whole concept of income tax is immoral. No government can legitimately tax anything but transactions: Income taxes, inheritance taxes, and property taxes are immoral.

“…and put it back in the pocket of middle-class people.” Gosh, that sounds familiar. Redistribution of wealth… where have I heard that before?

“Several political systems are designed to redistribute wealth including Communism, Socialism, and Welfare Capitalism.”

O’Biden: The Commie Ticket. Guess I’ll call him Pinko Joe now. What an anti-American assmaggot.

UPDATE: That didn’t take long. Pinko Joe opened the door, and The Sarahcuda walked right through it. LULZ!!1!

Academics are different from you and me

While perusing the news in my old home state from the other side of the world this morning, the following two items caught my eye.

From ABC affiliate WTVD:

McCain leaps ahead in NC

In an election for President of the United States in North Carolina Tuesday, Republican John McCain suddenly and breathtakingly surges to a 20-point win over Democrat Barack Obama, 58% to 38%, according to this latest exclusive SurveyUSA election poll conducted for ABC11-WTVD.

From the Duke Chronicle:

Prof, admin contributions lean to left

With election season in full swing, Duke professors and administrators are showing the money to their top picks for the next U.S. president.

Faculty members and administrators financially support Democratic presidential nominee Barack Obama over Republican nominee John McCain by more than 7-to-1, according to 2008 records from the Federal Election Commission, which governs and tracks all political contributions at the national level.


To borrow from F. Scott Fitzgerald, “Academics are different from you and me.”


UPDATE: The breakdown of the poll in North Carolina is quite impressive:

In 3 previous SurveyUSA NC tracking polls, McCain had led by 8, 5, and 4 points. Today: 20. McCain has gained ground in every demographic group. Among men, McCain led by 9 last month, 27 today. Among women, Obama led by 2 last month, trails by 12 today. McCain holds 9 of 10 Republican voters; Obama holds 3 of 4 Democratic voters; independents, who were split last month, break today crisply for McCain, where, in the blink of an eye, he is up by 25.

McCain is now in front among the educated and less educated, among the affluent and less affluent. He’s polling at 64% in Coastal Carolina (up from 57%), at 60% in Charlotte (up from 53%), and at 54% in Raleigh / Greensboro (up from 44%). Pro-Life voters backed McCain 2:1 last month, 4:1 this month.
