That sucking sound you hear

April 30th, 2008 | 4 Comments | Posted in wimps

Is Barack’s campaign collapsing in on itself.  I must say that I am getting too much amusement out of it and there is one point that ‘Reverend” Wright was correct about – in this case the chickens ARE coming home to roost and Obama can’t distance himself fast enough.

 Michelle Malkin says it perfectly (as always)

Barack Obama looked pale and wan at what he called his “big press conference” about the Rev. Jeremiah Wright on Tuesday afternoon. Numb. Chastened. Defeated. Extolled for his eloquence, Obama stuttered and stammered his way through the question-and-answer session. It appeared he was having an out-of-body experience.

Who knew that the greatest threat to his presidential campaign would come from the preacher who married him, baptized him, and prayed with him? Barack Obama should have known. That’s who. Take that judgment and shove it on a pretty campaign poster.

I love how Barack tries to say that he knew nothing about the radical views of his pastor even though he has been at that church for 20 years.  It’s like he’s the new Sgt. Schultz from ‘Hogan’s Heroes’

“I see nothing, nothing!”

So, it comes down to this, either Barack knew that his pastor was a race baiting, hateful person OR Barack is so far out of touch that he doesn’t even know the person that he said is a “sounding board” for him to “make sure that I am speaking as truthfully about what I believe as possible”

So, which is it Barack?  Are you a liar, or a fool? 

Nevermind, I think I already know the answer to that.  Jive talking indeed.

**UPDATE**

Dr Sanityhas a fun look at Mr Hopechange and Ace covers what the Media has decided for us about Wright.  Also, if you read nothing else, go to Iowahawk and read his “Dear Barry” column

More Liberal bullshit

Well, since they haven’t been able to get our guns and it looks like the Supreme Court won’t help them out on that either, the wonderful Peoples Republic of Kalifornia is now going to go after my ammunition.

AB2062 is scheduled to be heard on Wednesday, May 7 in the Assembly Appropriations Committee.  Sponsored by State Assembly Member Kevin De Leon (D-45), AB2062 would require that law-abiding gun owners obtain a permit to buy handgun ammunition and would impose severe restrictions on the private transfers of handgun ammunition.  Applicants for a “permit-to-purchase” would be required to submit to a background check, pay a $35 fee, and wait as long as 30 days to receive the permit. 

Not only does Kalifornia law make in nearly impossible to obtain a Concealed Carry permit for the average person, now the liberals want to make sure aren’t able to buy any ammo either.   Course, they are following the lead of the biggest hypocrite and liberal of them all from here (next to Nancy Pelosi) Dianne Feinstein.

Dianne Feinstein seems to think that while the rest of us shouldn’t be able to protect ourselves, she should have that option available for herself 

“I know the urge to arm yourself because that’s what I did. I was trained in firearms. I’d walk to the hospital when my husband was sick. I carried a concealed weapon. I made the determination that if somebody was going to try to take me out, I was going to take them with me.”

Thanks for deciding that I don’t need to protect myself or my wife.  I have been trained in firearms as well, much better than Mrs. Gun Control here because I know never to put my finger on the trigger unless I intend to shoot.  I also know not to EVER point a firearm at someone at ANY TIME unless you intend to shoot them.

I urge anyone who reads this to go and write to your state senator and protest this unwarranted intrusion into our ability to defend ourselves against the criminals.  Remember, if you take all the guns away then only the criminals will have guns – just they way they want it.

Gee, what a surprise

I was purusing Drudge and found this article the other day

THE US war in Iraq has strengthened its strategic position, especially in terms of key alliances, and the only way this could be reversed would be if it lost the will to continue the struggle and abandoned Iraq in defeat and disarray

Wow, how amazing is that (note the sarcasm)??  When we do what we SAY we are going to do and we don’t pussy out when the going gets a little tough (the way the liberals do) other countries respect us.  Gosh, what a surprise that is, strength is respected more than weakness.

Even in majority Islamic societies, their populations allegedly radicalised and polarised by Bush’s campaign in Iraq and the global war on terror more generally, election results don’t show any evidence of these trends. In the most recent local elections in Indonesia, and in national elections in Pakistan, the Islamist parties with anti-American rhetoric fared very poorly. Similarly Kevin Rudd was elected as a very pro-American Labor leader, unlike Mark Latham, with his traces of anti-Americanism, who was heavily defeated.

Does this mean that the Islamic countries love us?  Nope, but it means that they do respect us and when given a choice between psychotic religious nuts and a chance to have some kind of freedom, they will go with freedom.

We represent freedom to the world.  The countries that hate us don’t hate us because we are rich, they hate us because we offer something that they don’t, we offer a vision of a country where you can rise up and be whatever you want to be, think what you want, and not be controlled by a bunch of nuts because they have guns.

They really hate us because they know they can’t beat us either, all they can try and do is use our own freedoms against us by working our press, getting all the so-called ‘peace activists’ worked up and hoping that eventually we will give up and go home.  Soon as that happens they can declare victory and make it look like we are weak and they are strong.

If we stick to our guns and stay with Iraq until they are stabilized, we will create something that hasn’t been seen in the middle east for quite a long time, a stable country that is a real democracy.  It will also put a very large thorn in the side of the two biggest terror nations in the world – Syria and Iran. 

Honestly, how long do you think those two will stand when their next door neighbor is a strong stable democracy that is backed by the United States?  I don’t think it will be very long at all.  All we have to do is not give up.

Let’s try airdropping BRATZ and see what happens

Finally, an Achelles’ heel for us to exploit 

A top Iranian judiciary official warned Monday against the “destructive” cultural and social consequences of importing Barbie dolls and other Western toys.

In the latest salvo in a more than decade-old government campaign against Barbie, Prosecutor General Ghorban Ali Dori Najafabadi said in an official letter to Vice President Parviz Davoudi that the doll and other Western toys are a “danger” that need to be stopped.

Sweeet, so all we really have to do is start smuggling Barbie, GI Joes, BRATZ and maybe a bunch of Tickle Me Elmo’s in to bring their whole system down. Course, we shouldn’t stop with just those toys. No, no, no, we should expose them to all the wonderful toys that have helped shape our western civilization. We need to send them He-Man and Skeletor so they can see what the S&M crowd is into (let’s face it, Skeletor is a leather boy) and we should also send them every piece of Power Rangers crap on the market so their kids will start jumping around and thinking they are the next Red Power Ranger – they deserve it, you know they do.

I even know how we can sneak the dolls in, we just need to redirect the drug dealers in Mexico to shipping toys to Iran instead of drugs up here. Presto! Our borders would be secure and one of our biggest enemies would be surrounded by five year olds SCREAMING for the next Elmo incarnation at the top of their little lungs. They deserve every moment of it too.
