Will it never stop? The deification of Obama, is what I’m talking about. Now it’s Obama’s marriage that is historic and a teaching lesson for the rest of us dim-witted wife-beaters. This, from a column in the Ithaca Journ...

An article at American Thinker lays out a chart showing how Obama won the election by overwhelming Republicans. The author compares Republicans to Ethiopian spear-carriers who, under an onslaught by Italian mechanized troops, didn’t know what hit them. I like the analogy, but I don’t like the chart:

An Obama spokesman has just announced that the likely “downpayment” on Obama’s plan to expand health insurance coverage over the next decade will exceed $1 trillion. That’s above and beyond what presently is paid through medicare and medicaid.

The question is, what percentage of the total bill does...

Will AP’s cheerleading never stop? AP cheers the “audacity” of Obama’s speech to Congress last night, while Marketwatch reports on the reality of Obama’s massive plans for spending.

Media Still Campaigning For Obama

Nothing has changed. The mainstream media still is campaigning for Obama. On Obama’s announcement of troop withdrawals from Iraq, the AP headline screams “US troops to exit Iraq by August 2010.” Read several paragraphs into the story, and you will see that the headline and opening paragraphs lie. Obama plans on...

In an important ruling, which may not get many headlines but which holds implications for the ability of states to exert control of federal Indian lands, the U.S. Supreme Court has ruled in favor of the State of Rhode Island and Providence Plantations (the official name of the state — great...

Second time this week, I’m in agreement with a NY Times columnist, at least on the language I quote if not the overarching Obama-maniacal subtext. First, it was Maureen Dowd writing on the cowardice of Eric Holder. Now David Brooks, warning that the administration’s economic plans may be one large social...

Another fed-up, closet conservative has started a blog, Bread Upon The Waters. Check it out. Here’s part of the first post, which expresses the frustration — and fear of discovery — so many of us felt before we liberated ourselves and came out...

I wish this were a joke, but it’s not. The town of Dryden, NY, near Ithaca, has plans to build a bridge in an area so remote that the town does not want to spend its own money on it, so it is seeking federal “stimulus” funds. Nothing surprising yet. Much...

The cold day in hell has just arrived. I agree with Maureen Dowd:

Yet Obama is oozing empathy compared with his attorney general, who last week called us “a nation of cowards” about race.

Eric Holder, who showed precious little bravery in standing up to Clinton on a pardon for the scoundrel...
