Zounds! Kenny Bunk has found the method to Obama’s madness!
BTW, for what it’s worth, I am becoming convinced that the key to “understanding” the Obama Phenomenon is Deconstruction Philosophy, Dadaism
“Dim” Jim Hoft is at it again.
Saudi student Abdul Rahman Ali Issa Al-Salimi Al-Harbi was injured in the Boston Marathon Bombings.
He was once a “person of interest” in the bombings. He was put on a terror watch list after the bombings.
Michelle Obama visited al-Harbi in the hospital last week.
A Democratic congresswoman with a proposal for gun liability insurance has been getting death threats. I assumed that like death threats against Obama, they either would assume they were lies or else not care. But after months of whipping up gun paranoia, turns out they straight up approve, and even provide some threats of their own!
Former Sen. Scott Brown (R-Mass.) will not run for Senate in the special election to succeed John Kerry, dramatically increasing the odds that Democrats will hold the seat and setting the stage for Brown to run for governor next year.
It’s a serious, early recruiting failure for the National Republican Senatorial Committee, and it makes the already uphill climb to a majority that much steeper for the GOP. They need six seats, and many party strategists privately counted on Massachusetts as one of them.
“With Brown out, the Republican odds just went from excellent to poor in terms of winning the special,” said Rob Gray, a Massachusetts Republican political consultant.
Brown clearly agonized over his decision to stay out of a winnable race.
The Romney campaign is joining the ranks of supporters who have decided that major national polls show Romney losing only because the samples are overly weighted with Dems. Romney pollster Neil Newhouse insists that public polling averages are ‘skewed,’ and that the 2012 electorate will not show the same minority and Dem base composition as the 2008 one did.
But in an interview with me, Obama campaign pollster Joel Benenson mocked the idea that the electorate will diverge meaningfully from that of 2008 as as delusional.
The Five Reasons Why Romney/Ryan Must Be Defeated in 2012 - and Why Conservatives Should Hope They Are.
Today, for Republicans, up is down and front is back. Lying has become so ingrained into the conservatives’ national dialogue that they are now dangerously demagogic or, worse, severely unhinged. Blind rage at the election of Barack Obama has wrecked a once great political party. Its leaders have made so many deals with the devil in their almost pathological obsession with unseating Obama that they have pushed the GOP into its own version of political hell – unable to speak truths to their now-rabid and conspiracy-addled base and unable to right the party back onto a path of responsibility.
Web sites from Wikipedia to Reddit are dark today in protest of the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) and the PROTECT IP Act (PIPA), but bill supporters insist the effort is nothing but a publicity stunt and an abuse of power.
In a Tuesday statement, Chris Dodd, chairman and CEO of the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA)—and a former Connecticut senator—said Web sites participating in the blackout are “resorting to stunts that punish their users or turn them into their corporate pawns, rather than coming to the table to find solutions to a problem that all now seem to agree is very real and damaging.”
Freepers are OUTRAGED that Michelle Obama visibly rolled her eyes and said “All this for a f***ing flag” to President Obama who then smiled and nodded to her.
At least that’s what they imagine, based on this video:
Lots of “lip-reading” going on and enough outrage to last them…until the next one.
The Center for American Progress’s new report, “Fear, Inc.: The Roots of the Islamophobia Network in America” is receiving a positive welcome from neutral observers as journalists and pundits pore over the 139-page exposé on the U.S. Islamophobia network.
Unfortunately, that accuracy and thorougness has proven a challenge for many of the Islamophobes mentioned in the report. With no serious factual errors with which to attack the authors, they’ve fallen back on attacking straw men and offering vitriolic, if at times colorful, ad hominem attacks.
I know this sounds crazy.
I know it goes completely against the grain of mainstream political opinion.
I know you probably haven’t heard this anywhere else before.
But I don’t think Barack Obama will be on the Democratic ballot as a candidate for re-election to the presidency.
And I know he’s not going to win a second term.
Even though Obama has already announced he’s running, even though no Democrat is challenging him, and even though he has already released his long form birth certificate, Farah thinks that Obama won’t run again because he’s ineligible. He brings up the “fake birth certificate” canard and seems to think that some comments by Obama about being tired of the job at times proves conclusively that Obama won’t run again in 2012.
