Posted by  ▪  September 28, 2011
This van was spotted in Clear Brook, Virginia by the husband of frequent commenter DINORightMarie. The van was covered on multiple sides, so we’ll split it into two posts.  Here’s the full rear view, followed by an enlargement of my favorite:
 

Sorry Ted, you can’t “talk our President down off of this rhetoric”

Posted by  ▪  September 27, 2011
Self-made millonaire or billionaire, and now most hated person at Firedoglake, Ted Leonsis wants Obama to stop with the class warfare: Someone needs to talk our President down off of this rhetoric about good vs. evil; about two classes and math. Our country was founded on the premise of “life, liberty and the pursuit…

Waiting for Obama speech on 20,000 missing Libyan surface-to-air missiles

Posted by  ▪  September 27, 2011
ABC has an exclusive: video platformvideo managementvideo solutionsvideo player Some exclusive. In fact, I ran a post on it earlier this month, Let the Libya “unexpected” consequences begin: Such as a “no fly zone” over all of northern Africa, spreading across the globe, because while we broke Muammar Gaddafi’s army, we didn’t fix the problem…

Chris Christie, or the virtues of Honey Badgers

Posted by  ▪  September 27, 2011
There has been a ton of speculation that Chris Christie may run for president after his speech at the Reagan Library.  Now that the hype about Perry and Bachmann has dwindled, the first-term NJ Gov would generate a storm of media attention. I would be ecstatic if Christie entered the race. That’s because…

“All the working people”

Posted by  ▪  September 27, 2011
My guess is that none of these dancers has ever been a “working people.”  (h/t @jpodhoretz) I would not be surprised to see this troupe at an Aroma Cafe soon.  Hurry up kiddies, rehearsals have started already.
 

Obama accent-uates

Posted by  ▪  September 27, 2011
I’ve been meaning to post about Obama’s speech to the Congressional Black Caucus, now famous for its “stop complainin” verbiage: “I expect all of you to march with me and press on.  Take off your bedroom slippers, put on your marching shoes. Shake it off. Stop  complaining, stop grumbling, stop crying. We…

Sue, Sarah, Sue? No.

Posted by  ▪  September 27, 2011
Sarah Palin justifiably is outraged at the latest Joe McGinniss outrage. In addition to knowing that McGinniss and Random House published lies about her, Palin now has evidence not usually available to libel plaintiffs, in the form of an e-mail obtained by Andrew Breitbart in which McGinniss admits to not having the…

Berkeley Bake Sale, MSA 11, Display The Unversity of California Leftists’ Playbook – And Their Hypocrisy

Posted by  ▪  September 27, 2011
As CNN reports, and as Kathleen covered yesterday, the Berkeley campus is up in arms over the Berkeley College Republicans’ Increase Diversity Bake Sale.  The publicity stunt, scheduled for today,  is intended to show the discrimination inherent in affirmative action by selling cupcakes at different prices based on one’s level of “minorityness.” While…

The Jewish Vote Poll Isn’t, And Is, As Bad As It Looks

Posted by  ▪  September 27, 2011
While I certainly share Professor Jacobson’s skepticism of the GOP’s chances with Jewish voters in 2012, like Jennifer Rubin, I also see opportunities for significant growth, particularly if Mitt Romney is our nominee. The AJC poll showed Romney behind Obama by 50% to 32%.  Under the quick and dirty assumption that the…

Posted by  ▪  September 27, 2011
Things are so bad people can’t even afford to buy bumper stickers anymore. Another installment of the “we’re mad as …” series this week. Spotted by reader Larry in Miami, who apologizes for the “Socialism” bumper sticker being cut off, he says the full sticker is “Socialism = Trickle Up Poverty”:
 

No one expects the Rabbinic Left

Posted by  ▪  September 26, 2011
Aternative blog post title:  Why Jews still will vote for Obama, regardless. I know, you have a dream, that one day American Jews will judge political candidates by the content of their character not the “D” or “R” next to their names.  I told you time and again to keep in mind…

Obama Administration Apparently Leaks Misleading Story To Seem More Pro-Israel Than Bush

Posted by  ▪  September 26, 2011
The News Beast reports that Obama sold Israel bunker buster bombs that the Bush administration had previously blocked in 2005. The problem: In 2007, the Bush arranged for the bombs to be delivered in the 2009-2010 time period, which they were.  Newsweek of course dutifully spun the story to emphasize Bush’s original…

One thing I’ve noticed is that a lot of drivers are willing to express themselves is quite vehement terms against Obama and Democrats.  Has the fear of getting keyed or worse worn off? Like this rear window sign spotted by reader…
