Where you are held accountable for your convictions and record

Lets see. We have a barnyard full of freaks and animals, many of whom self identify as jack asses. The pig pen is full of fawning media types from MSM, gorging on the slop thrown to them by farmer Obama, who moonlights as a big tent ringleader. We got legions of clowns. Wasserman Shultz is eating fire, while Axelrod is juggling. One washed up vaudeville act after another — look its Michelle. She is telling a story about Barak’s rusty old car. Why was a lawyer from an Ivy League school driving a rusty old car? They drove the rusty old car to her parents country home, talking all the while about how money does not matter. The Obama’s are only worth $7M, how would they know money does not matter? Both went to Ivy League prep schools, and from there to the Ivy League. How did they learn that money does not matter? Someone was even selling popcorn and Tofu-corn dogs during this act. Yep. This is a circus. The Democrats have come to town of Charlotte NC, and the wheels have come off the clown car.

Bill Clinton will be taking the stage tonight. He is the man on the tight rope. I am sure he wants to help Barack Obama. Why? Because Bubba is just fine with his wife losing her bid for the presidency, and doing so in a grinding, underhanded and nasty primary campaign. Then there was the issue of Bill having the race card being played on him. I guess that knocked his honorary title of the first black president off his head and into the round file. Then there is the campaign in 2016 to think about, we can’t have Bill not playing the role elder statesman, gazing with approval upon his successor. Bill is just looking for someone to carry his bags, he said so to Ted Kennedy.

We also have the bearded women from NOW. These are serious women. Not a shred of humor to be found. Not a single funny bone in the lot. These serious women want people to think seriously about serious women’s issues. With 23M people unemployed or under employed, are these serious thinking women thinking about how do women find employment, keep their jobs, put food on the table and a roof over the heads of their families? Why no. These women are seriously fixated on getting public funding for abortions. They are so serious about this that it is now a plank in the Democrat party platform for this. This is serious business in a country where there are over 5000 abortions performed everyday. All Just to stop the so called Republican War on Women? Seriously? We are supposed to take the bearded women from NOW seriously?

So. How did the wheels come off the clown car? Well, remember that party platform we mentioned earlier? It no longer had language recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and the one last reference to God, had been removed. A small matter, except for the possible loss of the Jewish and non-Atheist voting blocs. But hey, this is Barack’s Democrat National Convention and he runs a tight ship right? Uh. Not really. The rules were suspended so that two planks in the party platform could be amended, returning language regarding Jerusalem and God back into the platform. The clowns were pouring out from under the hood and through the windows at this point.

This language would not have made it back in had the votes been counted. But Mayor Villaraigosa, the man with the top hat on stilts, pulled a move that would have made any Tammany Democrat proud. He declared it passed. Passed by two thirds majority? Really? It sounded like the motion did not even command a simple majority, no matter how often he called the vote. This fiasco is the mother of all unforced errors. The best part is that Democrat operatives have called this a Republican dirty trick. Really? Did Republicans write the Democrat party platform? Did Republicans make the motion on the floor to suspend the rules, introduce the new language, or vote against it? It must be George Bush’s fault.

These people want to lead our country? Really? Seriously?

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.

Interesting column in the UK Times: The Democrats have squandered the chance of a lifetime:

Under pressure in a Democratic primary, Mr Obama has sounded just like any other tax-raising, government-loving Democratic politician. Worse, he has revealed himself to be a member of that special subset of the party’s liberal elite – a well-educated man with a serious superiority complex.

His worst moment of the campaign was when he was caught telling liberal sophisticates about his anthropological observations on the campaign trail…

The myth that Obama transcends politics and ideology has been smashed, permanently. From himself, his wife, and their friends, there is now a rich audio and video trail of evidence that will be used extensively in the fall to demonstrate that John McCain is the only candidate for president Americans should feel comfortable with.

How ironic that McCain, the least attractive candidate for so many Republicans, will be able to position himself as the candidate Americans can relate to. I guess that’s the best the GOP can hope for in a Democrat year.

UPDATE: More on the same theme here:

As people begin to learn about this just-arrived pretender, the magic dissipates. He spent six weeks in Pennsylvania. Outspent Hillary more than two to one. Ran close to 10,000 television ads — spending more than anyone in any race in the history of the state — and lost by 10 points.

And not because he insufficiently demagogued NAFTA or the other “issues.” It was because of those “distractions” — i.e., the things that most reveal character and core beliefs.

Obama had a good thing going when he was simply a guy with a good speaking style. Now, the tabula rasa has been filled in.

I did not see the debate tonight between Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama, but it sounds like ABC did a pretty bang up job in the fair and balanced department:

Barack is defensive (understandably so when everyone is attacking him relentlessy for for he entire time) and Hillary is on topic and relentless in her attacks. But for the mendacity of the questioners and their questions.

Honestly, these people need to be removed from the Public’s airwaves and given ordinary jobs doing something useful like following the horses at Mackinac Island in the summer with a wheelbarrow and a shovel. It is painfully obvious that they have no skill at being “Journalists.”

So George Stephanopoulos is out there chatting with Newsmax columnists and Sean Hannity…

The Same George Stephanopoulos who is the Political Director of ABC, whose Good Morning America was the first National Network Program to break the Reverend Wright Story. And the Very Same ABC that’s owned by the Disney Corporation, whose other network, ESPN is in the news for Canceling not one but TWO Obama Exclusive Interviews at the executive level (edited with clarification by jethropaleorobber)

Let ABC Know what you think about this Garbage! We Expect Objectivity, not force fed conspiracy guilt by association Gotcha Controversies (and Hannity wet dreams)

Did the ABC News crew go easier on the Republicans at the January 5, 2008 debate in New Hampshire? Did Fox News go easier at the January 10 debate in South Carolina?

No, they did not – they just asked normal questions designed to force the candidates to address the sticky questions, and take a stand on current issues, often in light of the candidates’ previous statements. That’s what they do. I think the Democrat supporters, especially Obama supporters, are showing pretty thin skin at this point in the campaign, because it has not been a good few weeks for their candidates.

UPDATE: Maybe Steph was cribbing from Sean Hannity!

UPDATE II: Brrrrrr! Chilly appraisals of ABC.

UPDATE III: Shameful!


UPDATE V: Man, I have now seen a number of video clips of the debate on CNN and must say: This was another huge night for John McCain. He has not even had to comment or respond – he could be on a three-week golf vacation in Scotland for all anyone knows – and his stock has gone up big time. Neither of the Democrats seem remotely, plausibly “presidential.” I have problems with John McCain, but there is no denying this campaign is his to lose. The landscape could not have been made more favorable to him and all he needs to do is present a stable persona to contrast with the skittishness of these two Democrats, because neither of them gives the impression of being on solid ground.
