If women are such "great leaders," how come the woman driving this car supported Barry Obama over Hillary Rodham (Clinton) in '08 -- as evidenced by the fact that she's sporting an Obama primary campaign bumper sticker?!

That's a big'un ... has up a baker's dozen o' pics which, supposedly, represent "amazing" Caucasian Afros (check out the list here).

Absent from the list is one Neil Schon -- he of Journey, HSAS, Hear 'N' Aid, Bad English, and New Journey fame.

That's a shame, 'cause Mr. Schon once sported the best White Guy Afro of all time. To wit:

Stone in love, indeed!

President Full-O'-Himself

Charles Krauthammer says President Obama is a narcissist.

Ya think?!

It’s fine to recognize the achievements of others and be non-chauvinistic about one’s country. But Obama’s modesty is curiously selective. When it comes to himself, modesty is in short supply.

It began with the almost comical self-inflation of his presidential campaign, from the still inexplicable mass rally in Berlin in front of a Prussian victory column to the Greek columns framing him at the Democratic convention. And it carried into his presidency, from his posture of philosopher-king adjudicating between America’s sins and the world’s to his speeches marked by a spectacularly promiscuous use of the word "I."

Notice, too, how Obama habitually refers to Cabinet members and other high government officials as "my" — "my secretary of homeland security," "my national security team," "my ambassador." The more normal — and respectful — usage is to say "the," as in "the secretary of state." These are, after all, public officials sworn to serve the nation and the Constitution — not just the man who appointed them. ...

Obama is not the first president with a large streak of narcissism. But the others had equally expansive feelings about their country. Obama’s modesty about America would be more understandable if he treated himself with the same reserve. What is odd is to have a president so convinced of his own magnificence — yet not of his own country’s.


A cluster****, indeed

Wednesday was the 100-day anniversary of Obamacare. Senators Tom Coburn (R-OK) and John Barrasso (R-WY) have released a memo in which they tell us 'bout the cluster**** that's been loosed on the land ...

Fact: Sixteen million Americans are forced into Medicaid – a program that denies care, has higher rates of infant mortality, and yields poorer health outcomes for patients.

Fact: Citizens will be forced to purchase costlier health insurance or pay a tax, but illegal immigrants will continue to get free care and those costs will be shifted onto citizens.

Fact: The individual mandate will fail with the IRS as the health care enforcer, but uninsured Americans will be considered violators of the law even as costs increase further.

Fact: Millions of Americans will lose their current health plan as employers either drop coverage or purchase more expensive, government-dictated health insurance.

Fact: Patients with pre-existing conditions still face care restrictions, since the new federal risk pool is seriously underfunded and will offer coverage months after required by the new law.

Fact: The new health law increases the cost of health care.

Read the whole memo here.


Re: Barry Obama, the "unhinged" POTUS

Gary Andres tells us the very obvious:

The candidate who promised to bring people together and move beyond polarization has morphed into a divisive and defensive president.

Dollar Days in Obamaland

Anyway you slice it, this is pretty damn funny (and very telling as to how popular President Barry Obama is these days):

Obama is heading to MO and NV today to raise money for Secretary of State Robin Carnahan (D), running for an open Senate seat, and Senate Maj. Leader Harry Reid.

But Carnahan’s campaign wasn’t able to completely sell out the Folly Theater, where Obama will appear for a grassroots event on Carnahan’s behalf, at the prices they wanted. Tickets once priced at $250 are now going for $99, while $35 tickets are half off.

On top of Mount Obama

Next to Jonah Goldberg, Daniel Henninger is my favorite political scribe. Mainly 'cause of stuff like this:

The Democrats in Washington are beginning to look like a tribe of volcano worshipers, living in the ever-present shadow of Mount Obama, which has been spewing federal spending into the American atmosphere nonstop for nearly two years. Its ash covers everything.

This ancient Democratic tribe, whose number is 255, live in a rambling, run-down temple called the House of Representatives. They share the House with a sporadically hostile tribe called the Republicans, whose population has dwindled to 178. Every few years the tribes engage in an arcane martial-arts contest known as "the elections." Some of the members do not survive.

The Democrats have long believed that Mount Obama's lava field of inert dollars is the staff of life and will save them from extinction. But recent field work by independent ethnographic analysts suggests that the Democrats' years of living off the land of the spending volcano is probably toxic, and could result in at least 50 of them dying in the forthcoming elections.

Still, there exists inside the Democratic tribe a powerful group of priests who practice an abstruse discipline known as Keynesian volcanism. Their belief, in sum, comes down to: The bigger the better. For them, the eruption of Mount Obama was the opportunity of a lifetime.

Read the rest here (it's good stuff, indeed).


Quote of the day

When their own crowds assemble - a confused spectacle of coat hangers, rainbows, and "Free Mumia" signs - liberals enthuse about democratic health. But when conservatives gather, an angry social pathology is sweeping the land.

Taxin' Barry Obama

Anyone who's actually paying attention to what's going on in the U.S.A., economically speaking, knows this:

In case you weren’t aware, the Bush tax cuts of 2001 and 2003 are set to expire at the end of 2010. Thus, if Congress doesn’t act, the relatively low income tax rates that we’ve been enjoying (hah! enjoying?) will soon be a thing of the past. They will be replaced by the pre-2001 tax brackets.

In other words, the 10%, 15%, 25%, 28%, 33% and 35% tax brackets that we’ve grown accustomed to will be replaced by 15%, 28%, 31%, 36%, and 39.6% brackets.

So much for for all that Obama '08 claptrap 'bout how nobody earning less than $250,000 -- or was it 200,000? -- wouldn't never see his or her taxes go up by one penny ... or was it one nickel?!


Not to be outdone with just allowing the 2001/2003 Bush tax cuts to expire, President Barry Obama recently hinted at what everyone has coming when he said ...

[N]ext year when I start presenting some very difficult choices to the country, I hope some of these folks who are hollering about deficits and debt step-up because I'm calling their bluff. We'll see how much of that, how much of the political arguments that they're making right now are real and how much of it was just politics.

Who among us actually thinks that the "very difficult choices" Obama has in mind is common sense **** that'll actually but a dent in the budget deficit ... like eliminating unnecessary federal bureaucracies (see: Education, Department of)?

If'n you actually believe such -- you liberal idiot, you -- lemme know when you want to come over and see my unicorn farm.



Barry's gonna propose a big-ass across-the-board tax increase sometime next year, after the Democrats get their collective asses handed to 'em in the next election. He'll smooth-talk 'bout how nobody with no sense couldn't support his profligate tax/tax/tax--spend/spend/spend ways.

.... and then he'll have happen to him what happened to George H.W. Bush back in '92.

(When I say "happen" I mean he'll be ultimately defeated at the polls, not challenged by Pat Buchanan.)

Who wants to bet?!
