Not Ferris

We've seen the Republican Party, the Democrat Party, even a "Tea Party" but this weekend we get to see the Pity Party. It's kind of sad to see the old radicals who believed they were cooler than Bueller revealed to be as out-of-it as Dean Wormer.

Mock on.

Tuesday's coming.

What A Hoot

Everyone knows the old saw about how media lefties, when venturing from their coastal enclaves, need a visa to visit the rest of the country. A few years back this was brought to life by the internal memo warning reporters to make sure they had their shots up to date before venturing off to Alabama and North Carolina to observe those odd creatures, NASCAR fans, in their natural habitat.

Now we have a real screamer: left wing academics gathering in Berkeley, CA to figure out the "Tea Party". This is one of the most (unintentionally) amusing things I've read in a long time.

I'll offer something that may help. There is no such thing as the "Tea Party". It doesn't exist. It's like Francis Marion... a ghost... The Swamp Fox.

A Google gaggle gathers for Lordy O.


Don't expect to hear much about this but the cases against Blackwater operators are all falling apart.

Lots of media yak yak yak when charges are filed, not so much when the haters are losing the effort to prosecute.

Don't Look Now, But...

People are saying that Barney Frank's seat isn't safe.

We can all agree that when Barney Frank's seat isn't safe, no Democrat's seat is safe.

Smugly Is As Smugly Does

By now you've probably heard that the "Tea Party" Republican candidate for Senate in Delaware has been mocked endlessly for correctly pointing out in a debate that the "separation of church and state" is NOT in the US Constitution or the amendments thereof.

But did you hear about the lefty pig pile on Sarah Palin about 1773? Yep, the lefties don't even know when the Boston Tea Party took place.

Smug is ugly. Idiots who are both wrong and smugly arrogant are especially offensive.

Under 2 Weeks To Go

Michael Barone writes clearly from DC about some of the races around the nation.

Somehow he sees what other Northeast political writers miss.

Marching To Oblivion

Gee, I wonder why, on a national level, we hear so much about the Senate race in Delaware and the Governor's race in New York? Partly because the Northeast based dinosaur media cares much about its own backyard. But also, these are normally safe Dem seats that will, likely, remain Democrat so it's a way to report happier news to their cocktail party pals.

But meanwhile in the bigger world... 99 Democrat held House seats are in play. So... what's the real story of the day?

Rasmussen believes 55 seats will flip to the R's... but it could get bigger. Every day a poll shows another reliably safe Dem seat is up for grabs.

Losers In The Process of Losing

Apparently Team Axelrod believes that the only problem Lordy O has is a lack of public focus on the nefarious schemes of Limbaugh, Cheney, Bush, Boehner, Rove, Gillespie, and... um... er... The U.S. Chamber of Commerce.
As CBS (AKA: Clueless Bob Schiefer) might say, "Is that all ya got?"
UPDATE: The POTUS has added the voters to the list. Apparently voters are too scared by the world of today to see clearly. Of course, if they were thinking straight they'd vote for Democrats. Now that's a shrewd political strategery-- telling voters they're scaredy cats.

You Say You Want A Revolution...

From The Aspen Times, Gary Hubbell writes:

Average Americans who have quietly gone about their lives, earning a paycheck, contributing to their favorite charities, going to high school football games on Friday night, spending their weekends at the beach or on hunting trips — they've gotten off the fence. They've woken up. There is a level of political activism in this country that we haven't seen since the American Revolution, and Barack Obama has been the catalyst that has sparked a restructuring of the American political and social consciousness.

Think of the crap we've slowly learned to tolerate over the past 50 years as liberalism sought to re-structure the America that was the symbol of freedom and liberty to all the people of the world. Immigration laws were ignored on the basis of compassion. Welfare policies encouraged irresponsibility, the fracturing of families, and a cycle of generations of dependency. Debt was regarded as a tonic to lubricate the economy. Our children left school having been taught that they are exceptional and special, while great numbers of them cannot perform basic functions of mathematics and literacy. Legislators decided that people could not be trusted to defend their own homes, and stripped citizens of their rights to own firearms. Productive members of society have been penalized with a heavy burden of taxes in order to support legions of do-nothings who loll around, reveling in their addictions, obesity, indolence, ignorance and “disabilities.” Criminals have been arrested and re-arrested, coddled and set free to pillage the citizenry yet again. Lawyers routinely extort fortunes from doctors, contractors and business people with dubious torts.

We slowly learned to tolerate these outrages, shaking our heads in disbelief, and we went on with our lives.

But Barack Obama has ripped the lid off a seething cauldron of dissatisfaction and unrest.

All of it is here.

Time To Bid Spratt Farewell

Our Club For Growth has a TV ad ready for SC-05, the battle to unseat John Spratt.

Meanwhile, the NRCC has been up for a few weeks with their "John Spratt is Pelosi's Rubber Stamp" ad.

Who Ya Got?

Every day on sports radio/ TV talking heads make bold predictions about who will win the upcoming games. Nobody can tell the truth, which is, "I don't know." Instead they have to be certain to the point of belittling anyone who picks the opposite way. It is as worthless an exercise as anything on TV and yet, as sports fans, we watch.

At the start of this baseball season I made my own bold predictions. Unlike many of the TV pickers, I will tell you how I did. It wasn't purty.

Of the eight teams going to the baseball playoffs I only picked 3 correctly.

I got the Phillies winning the NL East and the Braves taking the NL wild card right while

picking the Tampa Bay Rays to be the wild card from the AL--- they actually won the East.

My World Series contenders were Boston (winning over) St. Louis. Neither even made the playoffs. Colorado and Detroit also came up shorter than I predicted.

But my worst pick was the Seattle Mariners to win the AL West. They were eliminated sometime in the spring. Ugh-lee.

But the playoffs start this week and new hope springs eternal.

Of course, I have no idea who will win, but I'd enjoy a Giants v. Rangers World Series. The worst matchup for my interest would be New York v. Philly. So, the Yanks & Phils will probably meet in the World Series.
