Just thought I'd post a lil MM

Boo freakin' hoo. Lovely.


Laura Ingraham having a phone interview with Rush Limbaugh while guest-hosting the No Spin Zone.

No joke, while she's talking, he is literally panting into the phone. Gross. He then says that he has diarrhea of the mouth. Gross, squared.

Keep your mouth away from the phone, Rush.

Laura Ingraham = nails against the chalkboard


Tim Graham, from the Media Research Center (whatever that is), says that Republicans are the watchdogs for political undermining. HA!!!

As I said, Laura Ingraham...nails on the chalkboard. "Defend the far-Left. Why won't you defend the far-Left?" This she poses to a Democratic strategist. Ummm, once you defend the "far-Right", we'll defend the "far-Left"...and fix your voice.

RNC lashes out at TN GOP

(CNN) – Republican National Committee Chairman Mike Duncan formally denounced Thursday the Tennessee Republican Party's use of Barack Obama's full name in a recent press release questioning the Illinois senator's commitment to Israel.

“The RNC rejects these kinds of campaign tactics," RNC Chairman Mike Duncan said in a statement. "We believe this election needs to be about the critical issues confronting our nation.”

The statement in question, which was released Monday, said the state party is joining a "growing chorus of Americans concerned about the future of the nation of Israel…if Sen. Barack Hussein Obama is elected president of the United States.” It also included a photograph of Obama from a 2006 trip to Kenya in which he is dressed in traditional attire worn by area Muslims.

The press release was sparked by recent praise for the Illinois senator from Nation of Islam Leader Louis Farrakhan, who has made several derogatory remarks about Judaism and has indicated his support for Obama. At Tuesday night's MSNBC debate, Obama said he denounced those comments and did not seek Farrakhan's support.

On Wednesday night the party removed both the photo and the reference of Hussein from the statement after Tennessee Sen. Lamar Alexander called to express his belief that using them had become a distraction, Tennessee GOP Communications Director Bill Hobbs told CNN.

The press release now includes a clarification that reads: "This release originally referenced a photo of Sen. Obama and incorrectly termed it to be “Muslim” garb. It is, in fact, Somali tribal garb, hence, we have deleted the photo. Also, in order to diffuse attempts by Democrats and the Left to divert attention from the main point of this release — that Sen. Obama has surrounded himself with advisers and received endorsements from people who are anti-Semitic and anti-Israel — we have deleted the use of Barack Obama’s middle name."

Hobbs told CNN the party will no longer use Obama's middle name in forthcoming press releases.

"We're not going to be using the middle name now because apparently it's become a distraction," he said. "But I would note not too long ago I saw a wire story out of the Middle East that talked about how a lot of people there are hungry for Obama to win and in part because his middle name gives him a connection, and that story used his middle name, so we're not the first people to notice and use his middle name."

Marsha of the North

Michele Bachmann on Bill-O tonight, attacking her own state for its immigration policies.

CongressWOMAN Bachmann represents Minnesota's 6th District, which includes suburbs of the Twin Cities. Buuuut, she denounces Minneapolis and St. Paul for being radical left.

I'm not 100% sure, but if Marsha attacked Nashville, there would be a slight uproar.

TN GOP...standing out?


NASHVILLE, TN - The Tennessee Republican Party today joins a growing chorus of Americans concerned about the future of the nation of Israel, the only stable democracy in the Middle East, if Sen. Barack Obama is elected president of the United States.

“It’s time to set the record straight about Barack Obama and where he really stands on vital issues such as national security and the security of Israel,” said Robin Smith, chairman of the Tennessee Republican Party. “Voters need to know about two items that surfaced today which strongly suggest that an Obama presidency will view Israel as a problem rather than a partner for peace in the Middle East.

On Sunday, Nation of Islam Minister Louis Farrakhan on Sunday likened Obama to a new messiah, calling him “the hope of the entire world.” That’s the same Louis Farrakhan who has a history of making openly anti-Semitic statements, calling Judaism a “gutter religion,” and suggesting that crack cocaine might have been a CIA plot to enslave blacks.

Farrakhan, addressing 20,000 people at the annual Savior’s Day celebration in Chicago, praised the Democrat presidential candidate, calling Obama “The hope of the entire world that America will change and be made better.”

He also compared Obama to the founder of Islam, remarking that both had a white mother and black father, according to the Associated Press. “A black man with a white mother became a savior to us,” Farrakhan said. “A black man with a white mother could turn out to be one who can lift America from her fall.”

Obama has on the campaign trail pledged to rapidly remove American soldiers from Iraq regardless of the resulting instability and the creation of opening that would be filled by Islamic extremists, like Al Qaeda, in Iraq’s government and military.

Obama has pledged to hold a Muslim Summit to determine Middle East policy with the very leaders that have as their goal to remove Israel from the map, referenced Jews to be “dogs” and “pigs,” among other vile references.

Over the weekend, news reports surfaced casting more disturbing evidence of Obama’s anti-Israel leanings.

The board of a nonprofit organization on which Obama served as a paid director alongside a confessed domestic terrorist granted funding to a controversial Arab group that mourns the establishment of Israel as a “catastrophe.”

The co-founder of that organization, Columbia University professor Rashid Khalidi, who also has held a fundraiser for Obama, is a harsh critic of Israel and has made statements supportive of Palestinian terror. Khalidi reportedly has worked on behalf of the Palestine Liberation Organization while it was involved in anti-Western terrorism and was labeled by the State Department as a terror group.

The Woods Fund, a Chicago-based nonprofit that describes itself as a group helping the disadvantaged, provided a $40,000 grant in 2001 to the Arab American Action Network, or AAAN, for which Khalidi’s wife, Mona, serves as president. The Fund provided a second grant to the AAAN for $35,000 in 2002. Obama was a director of the Woods Fund board from 1999 to Dec. 11, 2002, according to the Fund’s website. Tax records show he was paid $6,000 per year for his service in 1999 and 2001.

Also serving on the Wood’s Fund board alongside Obama was current University of Illinois-Chicago professor William C. Ayers, who was a member of the Weathermen terrorist group which sought to overthrow of the U.S. government and took responsibility for bombing the U.S. Capitol in 1971.

“You don’t even have to go outside Obama’s campaign to find advisers who are anti-Israel,” said Bill Hobbs, communications director for the Tennessee Republican Party. “Robert Malley, a principal foreign policy adviser to Obama, has advocated negotiations with the Iranian-funded radical terrorist group Hamas and urged that Hamas – which sends suicide bombers to kill innocent women and children - receive international assistance.”

According to, an online guide to the political Left, Malley “consistently condemns Israel, exonerates Palestinians, urges U.S. disengagement from Israel, and recommends that America reach out to negotiate with its traditional Arab enemies.”

“Nothing in Barack Obama’s history or his choice of advisers suggests he will be a friend to Israel,” said Hobbs. “On the contrary, supporters of Israel should view a possible Obama administration with extreme caution, as America’s ally is being put in the cross-hairs by the anti-Jewish left.”

More conservative VP talk

Streetcar Line
Veep, Veep!

By Quin Hillyer

Conservatives seem to have an intense interest in John McCain’s vice presidential choice. Last week's column started such an avalanche of reader correspondence that it might be worthwhile to draw out the discussion a while. Today's installment is packed with wonderful choices who did not quite meet all my criteria. Five people met all my criteria, by the way; I'll save them for another column.

I came up with 35 names of people to whom I would not be averse, some of them after having some 3 a.m. insomnia. I tried to think outside the box, for instance, and even found myself inside the batter's box instead with Cal Ripken Jr. (Okay, that was the insomnia talking: Not gonna happen.) Newt Gingrich (too divisive, but what a great thinker!), pizza magnate Herman Cain (okay, he's never won public office before), former Ohio Secretary of State Ken Blackwell (unfortunately crushed in his race for governor in 2006), former Virginia Senator and Gov. George Allen (macaca), Jeb Bush (wrong name), and former National Endowment for the Humanities Chairman Lynne Cheney (wrong last name again) were among those who met the test of the heart but not the head. For various reasons, I could live with (even enthusiastically for a few, but not all, of these) Condi Rice, Fred Thompson, Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, former Deputy Attorney General Larry Thompson, Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal, Tennessee's Sen. Lamar Alexander, former Maryland Lt. Gov. Michael Steele, and California's U.S. Rep. Duncan Hunter, among a few others, but am utterly convinced they would not be at all the strongest choices.

The next list (moving toward better and better choices) includes former U.S. Rep. J.C. Watts, Texas' Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison, Rudy Giuliani, South Dakota's Sen. John Thune, Alabama Gov. Bob Riley (the nation's best sitting governor, tremendously under-appreciated nationally), and -- upon very nice words from both a persuasive reader and by a conservative pundit whom I greatly admire -- North Carolina's Sen. Richard Burr.

All of which leads us with six people who would be thrilling, effective, utterly wonderful choices, even if they don't meet all my criteria. Here's how I summed up my criteria last week: McCain needs a solidly "full-spectrum" conservative, reformist, youngish, cool, well-rounded, brainy, all-media-respected, articulate, telegenic, border-state/constituency-challenging, non-party-weakening, executive-experienced, running mate who can handle the presidency at a moment's notice. All of that is a rather tall order, of course. Candidates can be superb choices even if they don't check every item on some arbitrary list. Let's look, then, at my "Superb Six" -- some of whom offer intangibles that may actually make them better choices than one or two of those who meet all my criteria).

Two House members fall short only on the "moment's notice" criterion. Wisconsin's U.S. Rep. Paul Ryan, who just turned 38, may just be seen as too young -- but, wow, what a resume already! A brainy, attractive, principled conservative, he worked for Sens. Bob Kasten and Sam Brownback, and also for conservative idea leaders Jack Kemp and William Bennett. He's already been in Congress for 10 years, but he has yet to be subsumed in the bad old ways and the conventional wisdom; instead, he has been a font of ideas, and a devotee of conservative ideals. A compatriot of his as a reformist conservative is Tennessee’s Marsha Blackburn, already an influential House member in only her third term (after four years in the state Senate and some 20 years as a Republican activist). Strikingly attractive, she gets high marks from Americans for Tax Reform, the Family Research Council, and other conservative groups. She is articulate and principled, and is clearly a rising star.

The next four superb choices all fail the need to add something to the ticket geographically or in terms of a particular constituency. What I wrote last week was this: The senator should not show weakness with his choice. Choosing a running mate from an overwhelmingly "red" state -- unless that running mate brings something else incredibly special to the ticket -- would be interpreted as a sign that McCain isn't even confident of his geographic base. The Deep South, then, is not the best place to find a Veep. Neither is Oklahoma or Wyoming or Idaho, unless the choice brings something else so impressive to the table as to amount to a strategic coup of the first order. (And by "Deep South" I mean both Carolinas, Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi, and Louisiana, in contrast to "border South" states such as Virginia, Tennessee, Kentucky, and Arkansas or with the more culturally diverse Florida.)

It is for that reason only that I place South Carolina Gov. Mark Sanford and Sen. Jim DeMint in the "Superb Six" also-rans here rather than in my next installment containing the Final Five. Sanford, a former congressman, is quirky but extremely effective. Like McCain, he is a maverick -- but explicitly a maverick of the right, dissenting not from conservative orthodoxy but from Republican Party back-scratching. DeMint has been an extremely principled U.S. senator, and is very persuasive in small groups. Meanwhile, very much in the Sanford mode is Oklahoma's U.S. Sen. Tom Coburn, whom the establishment media seemed to despise (as an "extremist") while he was in the House, but whose consistent advocacy of stringent ethics rules is earning him grudging respect even from ideological foes. Coburn is a fine speaker and a brilliant man, and very much a hero of conservatives.

Finally, there is Indiana's U.S. Rep. Mike Pence, one of the most galvanizing and principled young (48) conservatives in Congress. He's only in his fourth term, but is already a hero on the right, and his experience is broadened by his former presidency of the Indiana Policy Review think tank. He is perhaps the single best speaker on the conservative scene these days, and his white hair (surrounding a very youthful face) helps make him seem perhaps more of a legislative veteran than he actually is -- and thus to be more credible, to the general public, as somebody who could step into the Oval Office in an emergency without missing a beat. The geographical drawback of being from a state that always votes for a Republican president might be overcome by virtue of his broader Midwesternness: In other words, if he is sold as a regional candidate rather than just as an Indianan, he may be of help in places like Wisconsin, Iowa, Ohio, and maybe even Minnesota. If McCain were to choose Pence, conservatives would cheer many loud hosannas, while the rest of the country would see not at all a bomb thrower, but a thoughtful, upbeat, inspirational young leader.

Hmmm... Maybe he belongs in my top group after all. Stay tuned for my Final Five in a future column.

A brief laugh

I thought this was a legit article until I saw the advertisement on the side of the web page with the infamous whore wearing the "Ice-cold Conservative" t-shirt. PS...Liberals are cursed forever for being smart. Damn...maybe Fascists should encourage their kids to sniff more glue/eat more paste.

Top psychiatrist concludes liberals clinically nuts
Eminent psychiatrist makes case ideology is mental disorder
Posted: February 15, 2008

WASHINGTON – Just when liberals thought it was safe to start identifying themselves as such, an acclaimed, veteran psychiatrist is making the case that the ideology motivating them is actually a mental disorder.

"Based on strikingly irrational beliefs and emotions, modern liberals relentlessly undermine the most important principles on which our freedoms were founded," says Dr. Lyle Rossiter, author of the new book, "The Liberal Mind: The Psychological Causes of Political Madness." "Like spoiled, angry children, they rebel against the normal responsibilities of adulthood and demand that a parental government meet their needs from cradle to grave."

Kinky Friedman has it right

On the No Spin Zone: "Democrats appeal to groups that often don't get along, and Republicans just hate everyone."

Bill-O stutters: "um, um, um." (Doesn't know what to say.)

FYI...Bill-O has officially moved from Clinton-bashing to Obama-bashing. The Fascists shall follow.

Jonah Goldberg with perverted Glenn Beck

Apparently the government stepping in to help clean the air we breathe is fascism.

Government programs to help the poor is also fascism.

Finally, Progressives = fascism.


Seriously...high school social studies, guys.

Blackburn? VP? O-M-G.

Congressman Blackburn is beginning to be talked about as a potential Vice Presidential nominee for Senator McCain. Here is a recent article from National Review that mentions potential Vice Presidential Candidates:

McCain’s Veep
The right No. 2 could help John McCain.

By Lisa Schiffren

Tennessee congresswoman Marsha Blackburn, a staunch budget-cutter, social and fiscal conservative, and attractive — with a slick website, to boot.

Because he is not the first choice of the conservative base, and enthusiasm for his candidacy is, to say the least, weak, presumptive GOP nominee John McCain should use the occasion of choosing his running mate to show us he cares. Instead of the verbal bouquets he’s begun tossing, the ideal Valentine should be something more solid — like picking a real conservative to round out his ticket. In the interests of balance, his running mate should not only be a staunch conservative: he or she should be younger; be more ideas-driven; boast an executive record; and — ideally — have the capacity to carry a major swing state or region. This year, race and gender could also be factors to consider.

What’s good for the GOP ticket today is good for America tomorrow. A running mate who performs well either becomes vice president — a job in which he or she may influence the administration considerably — or, if the ticket loses, becomes the presumptive candidate in 2012.

I asked Corner Readers to suggest “a rising star who is likely to be a good vote-getter, a solid conservative, and also good at the policy areas (at least a few of the central ones, like the economy) where McCain is weak.” I also urged that “it has to be a governor with some talent, charisma, and regional respect.” On second thought, it doesn’t have to be a governor — though they do get extra points. And, to quote a reader, “we don’t want two old white guys up against Clinton or Obama.” Nope. Sure don’t.

The biggest vote-getter was Bobby Jindal, after only a month in office as governor of Louisiana. As one reader noted, “Bobby Jindal fits your vice-presidential criteria nicely. He could even defuse the HillaryCare's centrally planned health care with his experience.” Another reader said he “would be the smartest guy at any meeting in the White House.” Almost everyone who mentioned him seemed certain that he will be president sometime soon. He is obviously a star, but he is young and should wait for a more propitious year. And let’s see how he does in Louisiana.

Governors Tim Pawlenty of Minnesota and Haley Barbour of Mississippi tie for second place, though Pawlenty is edging ahead even as I write.

Pawlenty supporters are convinced that he has a big future. One reader wrote, “He’s young, energetic, has a good grasp of policy, and won re-election in a blue state in 2006.” Another: “He appeals to the vast majority of the conservative grassroots while bringing in moderates, and he’d shore up support in important Midwest swing states like Iowa, Minnesota, and Wisconsin.” “He won’t alienate the media. He has co-chaired McCain’s campaign since the beginning and remained loyal in the dark days of autumn.” Furthermore, unlike McCain, Pawlenty is sound on immigration; and “his wife, an articulate former judge, is a Baptist and he attends her church.” (A professionally accomplished wife is a big plus in my book.) And “Pawlenty has held the line on fiscal conservatism and kept his ‘no new taxes’ pledge, vetoing more than 50 bills sent to him by a tax-and-spend Democratic legislature.”

As it happens, the current conventional wisdom among strategists is that Pawlenty is the man. To win this year, the GOP will need to hold all the states that Bush won — unlikely — or to bring over some that he narrowly lost. Minnesota tops that list. His downside is that he has no national presence. I couldn’t pick him out of a line-up. Now would be a good time for him to start raising his profile.

Another reader enumerates Haley Barbour’s assets: “He’s a bit younger than McCain, and is a southern governor with a strong pro-life record — and he was the only competent elected official in the midst of Hurricane Katrina. He’s also strong on taxes and spending: He balanced Mississippi’s budget, and he vetoed a cigarette-tax increase and vowed to veto others. Barbour would be a perfect balance to McCain by addressing his southern problem and his conservative problem — and he is credible enough that Americans would be comfortable to see him being one heartbeat away from the Oval Office.”

I, personally, have seen Haley practice the dark arts of politics up close, and emerged with great respect for him. He’s a Reaganite. He is also immensely charming (you can’t win if people don’t like you) as well as very smart. (Imagine if Trent Lott had been really smart.) Barbour may be top-of-the-ticket material in the future. The downside may be that this is not the best year for a lobbyist or a genuine (if upper-crust) good ol’ boy.

Governor Mark Sanford of South Carolina is a rock-solid choice. He is sound on all of the important issues, and has an extraordinary record on budget cutting. Corner readers described him as an “economic libertarian” — an excellent thing to be. In fact, in his three terms in Congress, he occasionally veered from the GOP majority to vote with Ron Paul. He has an American Conservative Union score of 92. Sanford distinguished himself recently by writing a moving op-ed about the burdens upon southerners on the matter of race. On top of that, he is young, with a young family, and — dare I say it? — good-looking.

Governor Sarah Palin of Alaska, who came to office in the wake of Alaska’s GOP financial-corruption issues, is certainly an intriguing option, and a potential GOP star. While Corner readers perceive her as a dark horse, she got as many votes as Mark Sanford, nevertheless. The “youthful, attractive, conservative, smart, and tough” 44-year-old is thought capable of “neutralizing Hillary.” In office, she has been a strong budget-cutter, and, like Sanford, is described as an economic libertarian. She is a member of “Feminists for Life,” and opposes gay marriage — but has been sensitive on other gay issues, including partner benefits. Palin’s husband is a commercial fisherman, they have four children, the eldest of whom recently joined the army. In addition, she was a former Miss Alaska.

This might not be her year, though. Like Bobby Jindal, she hasn’t been in office long enough to garner solid experience — and like Tim Pawlenty, she needs to raise her national profile. What’s more, her state is small and reliably Republican. But she should be on the short list of candidates to watch for the future.

The most surprising frequent mention was for SEC chairman and former California congressman Christopher Cox. Most Cox supporters skip the prose and just list his very impressive resume. “Joint MBA/JD from Harvard (and editor of The Harvard Law Review), partner at a respected law firm, senior associate counsel to Pres. Reagan (’86-’88), nine-term congressman from Orange County (lifetime ACU rating of 98), where he authored the Internet Tax Freedom Act.” A well-known free-market conservative, Cox was confirmed to head the SEC with little opposition. “He is so brainy, and so solid on conservative issues across the board — and so well and deeply versed on so many issues. On top of it, he comes out of the Reagan White House — a direct tie to the conservative movement’s happiest days.”

Chris Cox is fabulous. He should be president. The only negative — alas, a big one — is that he has never managed to generate real excitement, even when running what should have been sexy hearings on big issues. He is obviously very smart, and a true policy wonk — the sort of guy who usually runs big, serious, difficult government institutions or departments. Is he a vote getter?

Former Maryland lieutenant governor Michael Steele got many very enthusiastic votes. He is solid, intelligent, and articulate — and black. Unfortunately, he lost his last election for a Senate seat. He certainly has potential, and lovely as it would be to scramble the race issue by putting a black conservative on the ticket after Hillary defeats Obama (think about that, for a second!), I think Steele could use another term in high office — or a Cabinet position — first.

Former Oklahoma congressman J. C. Watts, another solidly conservative African American, also got a lot of votes. He’s intelligent, a former athlete, and a successful businessman. Watts has made the point many times that the GOP does not reach out to black voters in a serious way — and he is right. While I think it would be good for him take another run at elective office before putting him on a ticket, he too would likely benefit from high-level appointment.

Like me, several of you remain loyal to the vision of former Texas senator Phil Gramm in high office. “I’d be pretty psyched at the prospect of Gramm having a strong hand in domestic policy, and I think it would be a choice that demonstrates that McCain thinks he can win and is getting ready to govern.” Gramm is the first candidate I ever wrote a large check for. Unfortunately, he was the Rudy of his year; lots of very smart policy, tough enough to whip Washington into shape — and no voter appeal. If McCain wins, a Cabinet position for Phil.

The GOP needs Ohio to gain the White House. With that in mind, several readers suggested former Ohio congressman John Kasich — who is articulate and smart, and who could help deliver the Buckeye State. (I think he is likeable but lacks magnetism.) Similarly, some suggested Congressman John Boehner of Ohio. (I say that he is needed desperately where he is.)

A few die-hard votes for Jeb Bush, and, similarly, for Fred Thompson. (Loyalty is nice, but get over it, guys.) And another few for always smart and interesting uber-pundit and former secretary of education Bill Bennett. Bennett has been highly successful as an author, radio-host and TV talking head — in fact, he’s indispensable in that role. He’s likely content exactly where he is.

Two to watch: Tennessee congresswoman Marsha Blackburn, a staunch budget-cutter, social and fiscal conservative, and attractive — with a slick website, to boot. Wisconsin congressman Paul Ryan, who is young, Catholic, handsome, conservative, anti-amnesty for illegals, and from a swing state (Wisconsin). Great on domestic policy — entitlement reform, earmarks, you name it.

A few Corner readers voted for Texas senator John Cornyn — though one of you would rather have him on the Supreme Court, if not providing leadership in the Senate, which is also important. Votes came also for Oklahoma senator Tom Coburn (not counting Tom Delay’s endorsement on Fox News last Thursday), who is as hardcore a conservative as there is, but counts as an “old white guy.” Retired general Peter Pace got some consideration — and he should be recruited to run for the Senate from Virginia. Whoever is in charge of these things should get on it now.

I don’t know about the rest of you — but this little exercise has cheered me up considerably about the post-2008 future of our grand old party, and our nation. Now let’s see what John McCain decides to do.

Re: where I studied abroad...

How do you say “coward” in Norwegian?
By Michelle Malkin • February 15, 2008 05:41 PM

Reader Sylvia sent me this photo that ran in Norway’s leading newspaper, Aftenposten. The headline? Norwegian press won't touch the a Mohammad cartoon. Check out the pixelated Mo cartoons. Yes, they pixelated the cartoons as if they were porn.

I'm not gonna post it.

Some responses from pleathered MM's readers...

Norweeniegian? Print the cartoons everyday until the Muslims stop whining and threatening. Ridicule is the finest form of punishment short of beheading. Imagine. I used to think of the Norwegians as Viking heros. I must have it wrong.

The word for coward in Norwegian is Norway.


Coward in Norwegian, aka stupid? The answer iiiiisssss...American Fascists.

Fascist against Fascist

Tonight - Sean Hannity and Annie Coultergeist ripping each other apart over Hillary/McCain. Back to Marsha and more kissies?

Bill-O...once again attacking Amy "Crackhouse"

Natalie Cole (a resident of Nashville) has condemned the Grammy's for recognizing Amy Winehouse's talent. Bernie Goldberg...WOW...surprises me by defending Winehouse. Bill-O says that Winehouse's problems got her the awards.

Jane Hall says that Winehouse "being out of the mainstream" gave her notoriety.

Goldberg comes back...we wouldn't have supported Elvis and numerous others if we had followed Bill-O's thinking.

Damn, now he's blaming liberal Hollywood, of course. Now they're on to Jane Fonda...

No, no, no.


mentally ill individuals getting firearms!!!

DEKALB, Illinois (CNN) -- A gunman dressed in black stepped from behind a curtain at the front of a large lecture hall at Northern Illinois University on Thursday and shot 21 people, five of them fatally, then turned shot and killed himself, said university president John Peters.

In our thoughts and our prayers on this Valentine's Day.

Happy Valentine's Day

This song might end sad, but so did Tammy and George...and it's still one of my favorite old-school country songs that I've done karaoke style. Yes, I'll admit it...karaoke at Lonnie's Western Room, Nashville, Tennessee.

Latest gems from Annie (get-your-gun) Coultergeist

Pat Buchanan says if McCain is the nominee, the Republican Party will lose its soul. I'm more worried about the Republican Party losing its mind.

We keep hearing about McCain's "lifetime" rating from the American Conservative Union being 82.3 percent. But McCain has been a member of Congress for approximately 400 years, so that includes his votes on the Spanish-American War. His more current ratings are not so hot.

Rudy supports torturing terrorists -- or using "enhanced interrogation techniques," as they say, announcing in one of the debates: "I would tell the people who had to do the interrogation to use every method they could think of."

McCain is hysterical about pouring water down terrorists' noses and campaigns to shut down Guantanamo.

There are a lot more extremely offensive "gems", but I'm not gonna include those.

No, no, no

Last Bill-O of the night...

now attacking Amy Winehouse for her tattoos...I guess that pushes me farther into the already far "far-left".

oops...a slip...Amy "Crackhouse" instead of Amy Winehouse. Ain't he funny? Yeeeah.

Get it right, Right!

Bill-O says the "Fascists" in Berkeley, who were opposing a U.S. Marine recruiting center, had to be squashed by the police. Again, Fascists not understanding what fascism means...

Dictionary dot com: A governmental system led by a dictator having complete power, forcibly suppressing opposition and criticism, regimenting all industry, commerce, etc., and emphasizing an aggressive nationalism and often racism.

Sound familiar?

Now Bill-O is interviewing a guy who experienced life after death.

MM BEGGING to use the N-word

Now attacking the Mayor Nagin of N'awlins. You know, that place the Fascists forgot. I definitely don't agree with all of Nagin's views, but it takes some guts to stay in a city that so many people abandoned. From the pleathered MM...

The Chocolate City clown mayor, Ray Nagin, is alive and kicking. What’s he doing after having confiscated the guns of law-abiding citizens during Hurricane Katrina?

Lagniappe’s Lair wants Second Amendment activists to pitch in.
Have at it.

Should be like, well, shooting fish in a barrel.
A chocolate barrel.

I love how the Second-Amendment Fascists want guns widespread in cities suffering from serious homicide rates (DC, Baltimore, Detroit), not to mention the most ravaged city in the U.S. Again, despite being the subject of much criticism, I am pro-Second Amendment, but it is an entirely different issue when guns are used solely for murder. Fight me if you want.

Marsha on C-SPAN...been a long time!

Uh oh....Congressman Blackburn thinks that the President spends too more kissies? As you know, Blackburn is an anti-tax Fascist/Libertarian. Makes sense when she represents one of the richest counties in America, and the richest in Tennessee, right?

Rep. Gresham Barrett (R-SC) and Rep. Jeb Hensarling (R-TX) spend an enormous amount of their time praising Congress"WOMAN" Blackburn for her "regular beautiful deliveries". They didn't get the memo...Congress"MAN" Blackburn. Why is she now sitting by herself when there are about 5 other people in the House? I'd personally like to chat with someone.

PS...Hensarling stresses that those who own Ford F-150 pickups are spending too much to fill up their tanks. Big surpise - Hensarling says Republicans are trying to stop earmarks...again, ONLY because Democrats hold Congress. Why didn't they try in 1994? 1996? etc etc etc. Rep. Todd Akin (R-MO) now getting praise for regularly giving Republicans hope at their weekly prayer breakfasts. Akin is now attacking FDR, but praises JFK. Another surprise - he spends several minutes idolizing Reagan and Dubya. A second memo not received.

Wait, what did I do?

From the TNDP...


In a strange event on the floor of the United States House of Representatives, Congresswoman Marsha Blackburn made an adjournment motion and then voted against that motion.

It is unclear why Rep. Blackburn (R-Brentwood) would vote against her own motion for adjournment unless she simply did not know why she was voting . . .

We The People, not We The DNC

The G-Funk's opinion: Florida delegates being left out of the National Convention is horrific. All candidates were on the was up to the candidate to make the decision to visit the state.

I'm not including Michigan where the ballot was somewhat different.

Forgive me for saying this, but "Change, change, change" + "Party, party, party"?


to Gov. Ed Rendell (D-PA) for using the "L-word" with a very positive connotation on Hardball.

Water wars rally the younger generation

You could probably guess which group I'll be joining.

From today's AJC...

Sign up for war! See Rock City!

Georgia’s border war against Tennesee now has its own Facebook locale, called “35 or Fight.”

The digital militia’s leader is Lt. Col. Jason Shepherd, a local Young Republican. He lists his address as “Chattanooga, Ga.”

In reply, Tennessee has set up its own Facebook defensive force, with the more pedestrian but accurate name of “No Georgia, You Can’t Have Our Water, or Part of Tennessee.”

The provocation in all this, of course, is S.R. 822 filed by state Sen. David Shafer, which claims that the current Tennessee-Georgia border doesn’t follow the 35th parallel as it ought, but runs south of that.

By pushing north, Georgia forces can grab a bend in the Tennessee River and solve north Georgia’s water crisis.

No surprises from the Potomac Primaries

So congrats to the newest members of the Country Music Hall of Fame.

From the Tennessean...

Tom T. Hall, Emmylou Harris, The Statler Brothers and Ernest V. "Pop" Stoneman will be the newest inductees into the Country Music Hall of Fame, CMA officials announced Tuesday morning during a ceremony at the Hall of Fame and Museum.

Known to country fans as "The Storyteller," Hall helped bring about a new era in country songwriting with compositions including "Old Dogs, Children and Watermelon Wine" and "Harper Valley PTA." Harris has provided bridges to country's past and to its future during her 33-year career as a solo artist. The Statler Brothers fused gospel quartet and barbershop-style harmony singing and became one of country's most beloved vocal groups. And Stoneman was a patriarch of country music whose 1920s recordings were some of country's earliest and most important.

MM asks...

When is it okay to wear a “Nigger” t-shirt?

Permission is granted…

1) When you’re a wealthy black rapper strutting down the red carpet at the Grammys, looking for some cheap publicity for your gawd-awful album of the same name.
2) When you’re the eptihet-screaming wife of above-mentioned rapper.
3) When you can give some nauseatingly p.c. rationalization for using a Forbidden Epithet by explaining that you are simply “reclaiming” the word for self-empowerment.

This is in retaliation to Nas and Kelis wearing shirts that bared the same word at the Grammy's.

Leave it alone, Michelle. Funny that Nas also gave his upcoming election preference...meaning party, not candidate. Guess which party (hint: it's the party that fights for hate crimes legislation and for universal sufferage)?

Maybe MM needs to think about what word she'd reclaim...can you think of any? Let's start the list!

Roll Call...

Quarter of a century

As I head to bed on the 25th anniversary of my birth, I celebrate the years I've attempted to spread the anti-fascist message across Tennessee, Georgia, and wherever else I've reached.

Congressman Blackburn rightfully acknowledges the devastation in Tennessee

Rep. Blackburn Comments on Impact of Severe Weather in Tennessee

I am struck by the devastation, both physical and personal, inflicted on our region last night

Rep. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) made the following statement regarding the tornado destruction in Tennessee: "Our state has been hit by a series of serious and deadly storms. I am struck by the devastation, both physical and personal, inflicted on our region last night. My thoughts and prayers are with the families who were impacted overnight. I commend the first responders and local emergency services for their critical action before, during, and after the storm. We are in contact with local, state, and FEMA officials on the impact and will continue to work to ensure that vital resources are available as they are necessary. I will remain in Tennessee today to assess the damage personally and offer any assistance I can to assure critical resources are available."

A new, ridiculous water war in the South

Water war between the states is for real
Tennessee defiant as Georgia tries to move state line to tap into river.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution

Tennesseeans reacted with humor, anger and defiance Thursday to Georgia's legislative attempt to move the border north so the drought-plagued state can tap into the Tennessee River.

"Us good Tennesseeans will take our long rifles up to Lookout Mountain and fire when ready," said Justin Wilson, a Nashville attorney and former deputy governor.

Should Georgia fight to extend its border to get back land it says is in Tennessee? Yes. It's Georgia's and we want it back!

Sen. David Shafer (R-Duluth) and Rep. Harry Geisinger (R-Roswell) introduced resolutions this week to, in essence, move the state line a mile north which would run the border right through a bend in the river. Then, the legislators say, Georgia could send billions of gallons of water to parched Atlanta without Tennessee's permission.

Shafer, Geisinger and others say an "erroneous" survey completed in 1818 placed the border 1.1 miles below what Congress had earlier established as the boundary.

Virtually every Georgia legislator signed on to the resolutions (SR 822 and HR 1206), which direct Gov. Sonny Perdue to remedy the border dispute with his Tennessee counterpart.

"While we know that this proposal is not a short-term remedy to our current drought situation, Gov. Perdue is open to looking at all options as we plan for Georgia's long-term future needs," said Perdue spokesman Bert Brantley, adding that the governor hasn't scheduled talks with Tennessee Gov. Phil Bredesen.

Bredesen, busy dealing with the aftermath of this week's deadly tornadoes in his state, couldn't be reached for comment.

The resolutions also seek creation of a boundary line commission, composed of legislators from Georgia, Tennessee and North Carolina (which shares a border with both states).

"Most people in the (Tennessee) Legislature understand this is a publicity stunt, but my constituents don't think that," said state Sen. Andy Berke, a Democrat whose district includes Chattanooga and the river. "They don't think this is an appropriate action for the Georgia Legislature to take even if it is in jest."

Shafer said it's no trifling matter. The correct boundary was set by Congress two centuries ago and the error must be corrected.

"The boundary of the state is the boundary of the state and can only be changed by acts of the Tennessee and Georgia legislatures and of the U.S. Congress," he said. "It cannot be changed by a mathematician with a faulty compass."

Georgia's predicament took on added importance with Tuesday's ruling by a federal appellate court curtailing Georgia's access to Lake Lanier – metro Atlanta's primary water source — in the future.

"Certainly it puts us in a difficult position," said Lt. Gov. Casey Cagle, who supports the Georgia legislation.

The crux of Georgia's complaint revolves around "a flawed survey conducted in 1818 and never accepted by the State of Georgia," according to the resolutions. Some surveyors, politicians and attorneys on both sides of the border agree that the state line runs too far south.

"I'd heard that the survey is in error, but the simple fact of the matter is that you don't rewrite almost 200 years of history because you want to," said Wilson, who served in then-Gov. Don Sundquist's administration until 2003.

Chattanooga Mayor Ron Littlefield scoffed at Georgia's legislative broadside, adding that boundaries, like other intrastate disputes, must ultimately be resolved by Congress or the federal courts.

"Georgia's legislature needs to seriously address (water) conservation rather than going off on a quest and tilting at windmills," Littlefield said.

Georgia officials agree it's a federal issue — and say that works in their state's favor. The Tennessee Valley Authority, a federal agency, manages the river, a legal distinction which might let Georgia take its case directly to the U.S. Supreme Court and avoid dealing with Tennessee.

Berke took to the Senate floor in Tennessee on Thursday to solicit advice from colleagues on how to fight Georgia's cross-border parry.

"My constituents in Marion and Hamilton counties have no desire to be part of the state of Georgia," Berke said in an interview. "They are going to remain in Tennessee."

Scared Fascists...update from CPAC

Club for Growth President Pat Toomey released the following statement on Senator McCain’s speech at CPAC this afternoon:

“Senator McCain deserves some credit for making a conscious effort to reach out to conservatives at CPAC today, but over the next couple of months, he will need to go beyond talking about those issues on which he agrees with conservatives and address those areas in which we’ve had strong disagreements. More specifically, he will need to reassure conservative regarding his vision on tax policy; political speech during campaigns; global warming remedies; and his general approach towards regulatory matters.”

“In addition, the most concrete manifestation of McCain’s commitment to conservative principles will be his selection of an economic conservative running mate who will unify the Republican coalition. Clearly, an economic liberal like Mike Huckabee will be unacceptable to a majority of Republicans. Rather, Senator McCain will need to pick a vice-presidential candidate who embodies the Republican belief in limited government, economic freedom, and the power of free enterprise to advance prosperity for all Americans.”

Trouble in Miss.

Racism at its best. From the DSCC...

Yesterday, the Mississippi Supreme Court ruled in favor of Republican Governor Haley Barbour and disenfranchised millions of Magnolia State voters by denying the state Attorney General's efforts to hold the special Senate election to replace Trent Lott on or before March 19.

The governor has been fighting hard for this delay - even though it seems to circumvent the state's constitution - because he is terrified the Republicans are going to lose this seat.

Today, the DSCC is going on offense and declaring that we're ready to win in November. We're launching a brand new website detailing the real record of Republican candidate and interim Senator Roger Wicker.

The $6 million earmark Wicker secured for a company represented by his former chief of staff is just the tip of the iceberg.

We can't afford another Trent Lott in the United States Senate. Remember, the latest polling shows at least one Democrat, former Governor Ronnie Musgrove, is already winning this seat.

Update from CPAC

GOP sources: Romney to suspend campaign

(CNN) -- Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney will suspend his bid for the Republican presidential nomination, GOP sources tell CNN.

Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney is suspending his campaign Thursday, sources say.

Romney had won 270 delegates in through the Super Tuesday contests, compared with front-runner John McCain's 680.

Romney had no public events Wednesday and instead met with aides to discuss strategy to stay in the race through March 4.

"It is tough to saddle up this a.m.," one Romney adviser told CNN the morning after his disappointing Super Tuesday finish.

Although he outspent his rivals, Romney received just 175 delegates on Super Tuesday, compared with at least 504 for McCain and 141 for former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee, according to CNN estimates.

Romney came in first in Massachusetts, Alaska, Minnesota, Colorado and Utah on Super Tuesday. In the early voting contests, he won Nevada, Maine, Michigan and Wyoming.

After his win in the first-in-the-nation Iowa caucuses, former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee became Romney's chief rival for the party's conservative vote.

Huckabee on Tuesday won Arkansas, Tennessee, Georgia, Alabama and West Virginia.

"Primaries are a killing field," said CNN senior political analyst Bill Schneider. "They take losing candidates and get their bodies off the field."

Suspending a campaign has a different meaning depending on the party.

On the Republican side, decisions on how to allocate delegates is left to the state parties.

Superdelegates are always free to support any candidate at any time, whether the candidate drops out, suspends or stays in.

National party rules say that a candidate who "drops out" keeps any district-level delegates he or she has won so far but loses any statewide delegates he or she has won.

Romney is expected to announce his decision Thursday afternoon at the annual Conservative Political Action Conference in Washington, three Republican sources told CNN.

From a fascist source...

Amid reports that Mitt Romney is dropping out of the Presidential race, The Sun reports that Sen. John McCain has been added to tonight’s Baltimore County Lincoln Day Dinner. The event previously featured Romney, who is apparently still going to be there. Does this mean Romney is going to endorse McCain tonight in Baltimore?

UPDATE: Rumor is the actual endorsement will be at CPAC (if it happens at all), but tonight could still be a joint campaign appearance for McCain and Romney.

Toss up

Again, I wanna say that my thoughts are with those across the Mid-South who felt the brunt of yesterday's's hoping for a quick clean-up.

In other news...

Obama, Clinton separated by 0.4 percent on Super Tuesday
Posted: 03:01 PM ET

NEW YORK (CNN) — Just how sharply are Democrats divided between Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton?

Of all the votes cast on Super Tuesday for the two candidates nationwide, they are only separated by 0.4 of a percentage point.

By midday Wednesday, 14,645,638 votes were reported cast for either Obama or Clinton on Tuesday. Clinton had won 7,350,238 of those votes (50.2 percent) while Obama captured 7,295,400 votes (49.8 percent).

Most precincts had reported 100 percent of their votes by Wednesday, though some districts had yet to complete their count. Many of those votes are in in New Mexico, where CNN has yet to declare a winner, and in California, where a sizeable number of absentee votes have yet to be tallied.

I gotta ask...

Why not South Carolina for the Huckster?

I can understand Obama over Hillary in the Deep, deep S.
THE MOST IMPORTANT NOTE: Prayers out to those in Ar-kansas, West and Middle Tennessee, and Kentucky. I will DEFINITELY end it there tonight.

Never give up on Tennessee

While storms are traveling across West and Middle Tennessee, I'm gonna hope for the best and post a message from the TNDP...

Tennessee Democrats have voted

While we here at the Tennessee Democratic Party are burning the midnight oil to calculate the final delegate totals for each candidate, we can predict with confidence that Tennessee looks a lot bluer tonight.

With 46 counties reporting, Democrats in the Volunteer State showed up at the polls to make this election an even more historic turnout from previous years accumulating 142,000 total votes versus 135,000 Republican votes.

This record-breaking turnout proves that Tennessee voters are ready for change and that we will be a battleground state this November.

The final fight to put Tennessee back in the blue column in 2008 begins today!

Wallace fever?

Maybe people listened to me when I said (jokingly) to vote for Huckabee, but the South kinda seems to be pulling an ol' Wallace again, pre-Nixon.

Too funny...MM preaches peace

All in the family: Politics and perspective
By Michelle Malkin • February 4, 2008 08:05 AM

It gets heated around here. It’s bound to get even more heated. We’re in the middle of a contentious presidential campaign season. There are deep and fundamental fissures in the Republican Party. Some folks don’t deal with conflict well and completely tune out. Others allow politics to consume every fiber of their being. I’ll continue reporting, blogging, and voicing my opinions. It’s my job and I enjoy doing it.

But as we start the week and head toward the high-stakes Super Tuesday contest, remember: There is more to life than politics.

Repeat after me: There is more to life than politics.

Over the past several weeks, I’ve received profanity-laced e-mails from people who vow never to read this website again because of something I’ve written–or failed to write–about their candidates. Goodbye and good luck. I hope you gain some perspective and balance in your affairs. When I’m not working, I’m quilting with my daughter, taking my son to his violin lessons, playing Monopoly Jr. 10 times in a row, giggling over “Make Way for Dumb Bunnies,” enjoying friends and family, loving and living life. I’ve learned over the years to work to live, not to live to work. It took time to learn that lesson. And it required making some tough (and not so tough) personal and professional choices. Best decisions I’ve ever made.

What prompted me to share all this with you? Well, there’s a story today in the NYT about Democratic families squabbling over politics. It’s a reminder of how ridiculous things can get when you let politics define your life.

I love how she ends with Democrats squabbling. I'm pretty sure it's the Fascists who are fractured...see Annie Coultergeist. MM is out of the Annie (get-your-gun) Coulter and Rush Limbaugh (don't have a nickname yet...suggestions welcome) circle. Get with it, my pleathered friend. (Click on the image above for a larger image...soooo worth it.)

Pleathered MM led me to an awesome bumper sticker

Thanks, Mrs. Malkin! Let's hope....conservatives goin' down!!!

Super Tuesday Eve

Polls, posturing, delegates, Limbaugh, Annie Coultergeist, Oprah, Shriver, The Arnold, Far-right, Far-left, too liberal, not conservative enough, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah.

Let's just get it over with. VOTE (for Huckabee, ha)!!!

"From Yale to y'all"

I know that Dennis Miller has pandered to the Fascist-right with Bill-O for a long time, but his admiration for Bush is kinda sketchy...there's more boot-lickin' for Bush than for Bill-O. Now he's calling his dogs "bitches". Cute.

PS...what do you get from going from "y'all" to "y'all"? get John McCain at the "First in the South" primary saying he will provide more money for community colleges. Hmmm...I don't know anyone who went to community college...are we the exceptional Southerners?

Fascists gone haywire

While President George W. Bush has maintained neutrality among contenders for the Republican presidential nomination, he privately expresses to friends his exasperation with Mitt Romney’s hard-line stance on immigration.

Bush is upset that Romney changed his position on the issue, compared to what it had been when he was governor of Massachusetts, at the expense of the president’s immigration reform. Bush and Sen. John McCain are not close, but the president is grateful for McCain’s support on Iraq and immigration.

A footnote: The president’s younger brother, former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, has not endorsed any presidential candidate. But he and his political allies were behind Romney’s losing effort in last Tuesday’s Florida primary.

Such chaos!!! Help, spirit of Mussolini!

Aaaand it's that Sunday

Super Bowl... NY Giants... awesome... done.

Annie is pissed

Not a liar?

I said I wouldn't touch it...but, you know, like the forbidden fruit.


OK...I'm not gonna touch the Ann Coulter "endorsement", but I will post about the Dogg since I grew up with him...

Snoop Dogg torn between Obama, Clinton
Posted: 09:43 PM ET

(CNN) — Days before 22 states are set to hold Democratic primary contests, it appears at least one crucial endorsement is still up for grabs: Rapper Snoop Dogg's.

The rapper and music producer told CNN's Larry King he is torn between both Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton's historic candidacies.

"I just want to see somebody win in the best interest of America — whether it be [Obama], a black man, or whether it be Hillary, a woman," Snoop Dogg, whose real name is Cordozar Calvin Broadus, Jr., says in an exclusive interview set to air Friday night.

"Either one is a great move for America," he continued. "We need change. We need somebody in there that's about listening to the people and representing the people. I think both of the candidates will do that."

Snoop Dogg also said he thinks America is ready for a black president, noting Obama is the first African-American with a legitimate chance to win the White House.

"In the past we had presidential candidates like [Rev.] Jesse Jackson. We didn't really think he can win," he said. "Right now people feel like this man could really win. He's got the right thing going for him. He's got the right conversation. He's in line with the right scenario to win. Whether he wins or loses, he made a great step for black America by even stepping to the table and pulling off something like this."
