I hope Biden's Daughter Enjoys Her Drugs

Posted by – 3/30/09

…because I really don’t care what she does. And neither should the media. I’m thoroughly impressed that none of the media outlets took Ashley’s friend up on her offer to provide video of the young Biden snorting coke (though I suspect that many outlets chose to ignore the story for political rather than principled reasons). Ashley Biden isn’t running for office. She’s not set to lead this county. She’s most certainly an adult.

Let’s put pressure on our political leaders in relevant ways, not through underhanded attempts to discredit them. The angry left’s feigned outrage over Bristol Palin’s un-planned teen pregnancy in an attempt to sully Sarah Palin was just plain dirty politics. During the entire campaign, I heard not a single substantive argument against Sarah Palin coming from the left and their MSM allies (and as much as I like her, even I could give you some). It was all foam-at-the-mouth and self-righteous indignation.

Let’s not do the same to the Biden family.

Camille Paglia:

How dare Palin not embrace abortion as the ultimate civilized ideal of modern culture? How tacky that she speaks in a vivacious regional accent indistinguishable from that of Western Canada! How risible that she graduated from the State University of Idaho and not one of those plush, pampered commodes of received opinion whose graduates, in their rush to believe the worst about her, have demonstrated that, when it comes to sifting evidence, they don’t know their asses from their elbows.

Liberal Democrats are going to wake up from their sadomasochistic, anti-Palin orgy with a very big hangover. The evil genie released during this sorry episode will not so easily go back into its bottle. A shocking level of irrational emotionalism and at times infantile rage was exposed at the heart of current Democratic ideology — contradicting Democratic core principles of compassion, tolerance and independent thought. One would have to look back to the Eisenhower 1950s for parallels to this grotesque lock-step parade of bourgeois provincialism, shallow groupthink and blind prejudice.

It’s a good read, so read the whole thing.

Election 2008: Semi-live Blog

6:09: My prediction: Tomorrow, the MSM will stop hating McCain. He’ll become a favorite again, and analysis of his campaign will even be sympathetic.

6:19: 41 minutes until the campaign ads stop. Finally.

6:21: Looks like so far, McCain has the lead in both electoral college and popular vote (8 to 3, 53% to 46% respectively). I guess the polls close early in the racist states.

6:28: Ace: Biggest loss of the night? Megyn Kelly is not wearing the glasses. I thought she was saving them for the rally night.

Redistribution of Wealth: Not just a slip, folks (with self-hosted video)

Posted by – 10/27/08

You’ve no doubt been hearing the argument that Obama’s Redistribution of Wealth comment to Joe the Plumber was just a slip. (Even so, a Freudian slip is still quite revealing.) But now, new startling evidence is surfacing that it wasn’t a slip. Rather, it was revealing of an ideology that has been reasoned out by Obama. After the fold, hear the 2001 interview with Obama concerning not if Redistribution of Wealth is right or wrong but how our activist might best achieve it. It’s a foregone conclusion for Obama that it must be done.

Two things to learn from Joe the Plumber

Posted by – 10/17/08

  1. Notice the treatment of Joe the Plumber by the media, hardcore liberals, and the Obama camp. Speak out against the King and this is what you can expect as well, so think long and hard about it.
  2. If you can look past all the distraction about Joe the Plumber not making $250,000, owing back taxes, or loving to kill hobos, you’ll see the whole reason this Youtube video became a sensation in the first place. Barack Obama let slip a major part of his ultimate socialist agenda: the redistribution of wealth.

Favorite bits:

“Joe the Plumber is a regular guy who asked a regular guy question and got Obama into some dire straits. He put Obama on the spot, Obama made a gaffe, and the press is just trying to cover it up.”

“It’s like when John Murtha said everybody is western Pennsylvania — which is near me as well — is a bunch of racists. I mean, what planet are these people from Obama’s campaign from!?”

Indeed.

An escalation of rage?

Posted by – 10/12/08

When you get the urge to blindly follow the media’s portrayal’s of random shouts during McCain/Palin rallies, have a look at this to help balance it out. The media has willfully ignored the rage, death threats, and assassination fantasies of the left over the last 8 years of Bush, and they continue to ignore it with the rage over McCain and Palin. If you must, google “Bush Derangement Syndrome” and “Palin Derangement Syndrome.”

When people on the right get out of line, everyone calls them out on it– including leadership on the Right.

When people on the left get out of line? Crickets.

UPDATE: If someone at a McCain rally or sporting event wore an “Obama is a N*****” t-shirt, that would be supremely racist and way out of line, right? Right. Still waiting on the media to tell everyone about this.

UPDATE II: Ha! It took over two hours of comments at Patterico before he had to step in and ask if no one got the satirical nature of his post! (His website’s down as of posting time. I’m sure his server’s being slammed right now.)

Count of hands doesn't matter, script was already written

From the comments: “Wow, talk about working backwards from a desired conclusion.” To be fair to Soledad, she was probably also counting the entire CNN news crew behind the cameras.

“The fix is in, and it’s working.”

Still in the tank: reactions to the two debates

Posted by – 10/5/08

Is anyone else enjoying the dramatic irony of the mainstream media’s reactions to the VP debate when compared with the first presidential debate? We’re supposed to believe that Biden vs. Palin came down to substance vs. style. If you’re not sure which one is the positive, I don’t blame you. When the libs watched the VP debate, it was incredibly clear: the man with substance was the winner. When they watched the presidential debate, it was also incredibly clear: the man with nuanced style was the winner.

Nevermind the baseless authority with which Biden spoke and rattled off facts — ones that are easy to come by, of course, given their incipience in Joe’s head — the Dems absolutely loved him. And since the mainstream media is packed to the brim with Dems, what do you expect the columns might be filled with this week?

So they’re in love with factless substance now? Great.

Obama, on the other hand, seems to know very little about a lot of things. And though Palin’s been blasted over the last few days for her folksiness and inability to adhere to the Dems pre-determined agenda, somehow every one of Obama’s absolutely show-stopping public train wrecks have been swept under the rug. Nothing to see here, move it along. Shoo.

Obama’s teleprompter-powered speeches might make some weak in the knees, but his reticence does nothing to impress me. I suppose I can’t blame him. Every time he reacts instinctively, he tends to be wrong. Iran? Wrong. Georgia? Wrong. Freddie and Fannie? Wrong.

Yeah, gotta love that nuance. And all that substance from the Senatorial veteran. Facts don’t matter in the Obamanation. It just has to sound right.

More cozy tankie-ness for O and the media

As he exited the hotel for his dinner break, Biden was asked “Senator, can we get your reaction to the House bill not passing?” 

Biden interrupted the question with a “Hey folks,” to reporters and then said “Oh, things are going well.”

Prior to Biden’s departure, the press was moved further away from the hotel’s exit, perhaps far enough away that it prevented Biden from clearly hearing the question.

How wonderfully helpful of this reporter to give Anchor Joe the benefit of the doubt here. Meanwhile, every major news agency has folks on the ground in Alaska and Arizona desperately searching for any scrap of evidence that can bring down the McCain-Palin ticket. I’m serious, the media’s on their last leg this election cycle.

Eww?

Posted by – 9/9/08

I hope you saw the convention coverage, specifically Palin’s youngest kitty licking her baby brother’s hair on national TV, speculated by some to be the cutest moment ever. But not to the folks at the New York Times. They recoiled like they’d seen someone crushing a sewer rat with the butt of a rifle. Honestly, their brand of enlightenment disgusts me.

From The Right Coast‘s comments:

“The culture without children is forever immature, self-obsessed and rightous. They cannot help the high opinion they have of themselves; there’s no kids around to show them otherwise.”

Quoted for truth.

and,

I can imagine the NYT writers talking over drinks later that night about how the simple-minded rubes that ultimately decide elections would probably see Palin as a strong mother and not a ‘cheap, lying gender-traitor’ because of the distraction provided by the second-youngest of her litter… To oversimplify it, they view the left as the good guys. And only the good guys should get to place pictures of their fond moments on America’s collective refrigerator. Like this one.
