Where you are held accountable for your convictions and record

Oh the humanity!

mrz082608dapr.jpg

Obama is too proud to have Bill sleeping in the Lincoln Bedroom. Instead he would rather say to the PUMA Democrats ‘Drop Dead’. To Hillary, ‘Hey, its 3AM, you get it?’ Real smooth Barak!

He needs to listen to his teleprompter writers. This was a no brainer when looked at through the lens of ‘real-politik’. Imagine what a disaster this babe-in-the-woods will be when he comes up against some of the real bad boys of the world.

Obama speaks from Mt. Olympus

Barack Obama puts the finishing touches on his acceptance speech tonight in rehearsal for tomorrow’s historic address from Mt. Olympus.

What amazes me is how long the whole PUMA movement has been ignored by the Obama sycophants in the MSM.  Now at the convention there is a flurry of recent articles.  Outside of FOX and the blogg-o-sphere this movement has been ignored.  From hotair.com …

Hillary Clinton’s supporters will not go quietly, it seems.  According to a Scripps-Howard report this morning, unnamed backers of Hillary have begun a “massive” e-mail campaign insisting that she won more votes and is the only electable candidate in 2008.  Perhaps, in consideration of the polling free-fall Barack Obama has experienced this summer, they may have a point

The story it appears has finally broken out and is now being reported in the MSM.  The folks at CBS finally write about but the articles concentrates on the Republican reaction instead of the root cause.  Media Matters is in full spin mode calling it hype.  The following sheds light on the matter …

The issue here is one of slander.  The Obama camp leveled the racist charge at anyone who questioned his bonafides.  Considering how small Obama’s bonafides are one can almost understand how sensitive his is in this matter.  Both Clinton’s, Ferraro and others have been tarred.  Wasn’t Bill Clinton the first Black president?  Is this the campaign rhetoric and tactics of the post racial candidate?

UPDATE

He actually said it.  Obama claims McCain thinks middles class ends at $5M.  That was joke.  Obama knows it was a joke.  But he treats it like it was serious.  He is lying through his teeth.

To shift ones position with every change in the wind is to flip flop. To observe over time, and change ones mind because as new information becomes available one can put together a more informed choice is sometimes sorrowful wisdom. I was planning to stay home and get into a pain free state this election day. Unfortunately, it appears that the differences between the candidates with regard to overall quality is sufficient to force me to make a decision, and to vote (sob). I will hate myself in the morning, but unfortunately, vote I must. The Democrats have once again won the ‘evil in the two lessors’ category. In a year that should have been a slam dunk for them, they have managed to make the race competitive.

There is a stuttering idiot in the White House; Bush has undone in 4 years what was the work of two generations, the building of a conservative majority. The Republican brand has been so badly damaged that this Presidential election should have been over before it began. It was until the Democrats found … the one.

Pastor Warren’s program was brilliant. An apples to apples comparison of the two candidates. Each candidate answered the same questions without knowing the others answers. Obama went first, then came McCain. The comparison was striking. The pastors questions were designed to force answers, and to provide insight into the candidates character and world view.

Nobody saw this coming.

Barack Obama, running on a theme of “change,” has not scored a public relations bonanza with his decision to nominate for vice president Joe Biden, a senator who has been in office since Richard Nixon was president, instead of Hillary Clinton, who has been in office since November 7, 2000.

Sixty-six percent of Clinton supporters, registered Democrats who want Clinton as the nominee, are now backing Obama. That’s down from 75 percent in the end of June. Twenty-seven percent of them now say they’ll support McCain, up from 16 percent in late June.

And the more Clinton supporters think through what just happened, I am guessing, the more will scratch their heads about Obama’s choice for VP.

Ne’er has a story touched the cockles of my heart such as that of little Devin Funck.

12-year old Devin and his buddies were recently sitting on the edge of a pond in Slidell, Louisiana, throwing sticks at a 10 ft+ alligator. Afterward, growing bored, Devin decided to get in the water. And why not. As luck would have it the gator, very appropriately named ‘Big Joe,’ swam over and bit off Devin’s arm. As Devin reports, “I thought I still had my arm… and I looked and I was like, ‘Oh, man.’

Isn’t that how it always goes?

Anyway, the original arm was eventually dug out of Big Joe’s gullet but could not be saved, so the weenie doctors suggested a prosthetic arm cloaked in lifelike latex “skin” but Devin would have none of that fakery.

“I want a robot arm,” he said. “Get me a robot arm that looks like the Terminator.”

From now until he finishes growing, Devin at least once a year will need a new prosthetic arm. Prices start around $6,000.

“The ones that connect to the nerve endings are $100,000,” his mother said of the high-end model he might receive in later years.

In a “practical” world view, such a prospect for a little boy who simply chose to get in a pond with an alligator might be considered problematic. “A lot of money for such a dumb-ass” the cynics might say. But in truth, we must see this as the exemplification of the American spirit: no fear nor thought for the ‘morrow, leading with the chin, ready to take whatever life dishes out.

In a few months Devin will be fitted for a body-powered arm with a hook like Russell’s. And in a few years, as the technology improves, Devin could get one of the computerized models that connect to nerve endings and are powered by Devin’s thoughts.

“You’ll be able to swim and ride a four-wheeler,” Bordelon told him. “You like riding a four-wheeler?”

Sitting in an office chair, surrounded by the Terminator-like technology that will become his future, Devin’s eyes widen with possibility.

And well they should, young master Funck, and well they should.
