Just doin’ my part

to help take it viral.

Cap and traitor, see ya later.

Sen. Jim Inhofe says the bill is DOA in the Senate.
We can only hope. The full story is here.

Inhofe said the much-anticipated conclusion of a Senate race in Minnesota that will give Democrats the 60 votes needed to overcome Republican filibusters would not be enough to save the climate change bill.
“I’ll tell you what a lot of people are thinking, and that is it looks like things are going to be over and we are going to get the clown from Minnesota,” he said.
“They are not going to get more than 35 votes.”
Asked if he was referring to Al Franken as the clown from Minnesota, Inhofe confirmed he was.
“I didn’t mean to be disrespectful. I don’t know the guy, but … for a living he is a clown,” the senator said.
“That’s what he does for a living.”


Man, you could hear that all the way from Cuber.

Military Judge Refuses to Halt Trial of USS Cole Bombing Suspect
A military judge has refused the Obama administration’s request to delay the arraignment of Abu al-Nashiri, the accused planner of the 2000 USS Cole attack in Yemen, FOX News learned Thursday.
Judge James Pohl’s ruling throws a wrench in President Obama’s plans to suspend the military tribunal process for 120 days while the administration reviews how to close the Guantanamo Bay detention facility within the year.
Pohl’s decision is striking because two other military judges in a Sept. 11 conspiracy case and in the case of Canadian Al Qaeda operative Omar Khadr agreed to suspend proceedings in accordance with Obama’s recent executive order, which put a hold on all military tribunals.
Al-Nashiri’s arraignment is scheduled for Feb. 9 at Guantanamo Bay. A Defense Department spokesman said the only thing now that can stop the court appearance from going forward is a withdrawal of the charges without prejudice by Judge Susan Crawford, head of the convening authority that oversees the entire process at Guantanamo.
If the charges are dropped without prejudice, new charges could be brought in another venue, possibly a military court martial or criminal court.
The October 2000 attack on the USS Cole killed 17 service members and injured 50 others.

Obama to go after right-to-carry laws?

If so: Classic case of overreach.
Face it, Dems: When guns are outlawed, only outlaws will have guns.
And you’ll never find mine.
For the two years you’ll be in control after outlawing them.
PS: Just a reminder that we’ve been here before.

Obama and earmarks

You’d think a guy with ears like his would be more concerned about earmarks.

H/T Hoosier Access.
(BTW, I await the first editorial cartoon comparing Obama to a chimp. After all, they compared Bush to a chimp primarily based on a huge exaggeration of his ears. At least with Obama, you’re working from what nature gave him.)
(Yes, I agree, that’s definitely and deliberately offensive. Fuck you if you don’t like it; I’ve been putting up with your type for the last eight years, it’s your turn to be offended.)
10/29: It’s been bugging me since I first saw the ad, and I finally had a chance to really look at it and I think I was right: There’s a bad continuity issue. Can anybody figure out what it is?
My take below the break.

An American Carol

I really want to see it this weekend. (Here’s the trailer.)
I was just sitting here thinking that showings would be a great place for Obama flash mobs to show up and disrupt things.
But then I thought: The only way they can get into the theatre is to buy a ticket.
If they do that, the movie succeeds beyond the filmmakers’ wildest dreams.
If they don’t, good conservatives like myself get to see the movie without interruption.
What a choice for extreme lefties. Heh.

McCain, Obama in ‘Brain’ Battle

sez Fox.
That seems unfair to me, given that Obama is unarmed.

But this is straight talk

Sarah Palin today in Cedar Rapids:

Our opponents, they have some strange ideas about raising taxes. (Male voice in audience: “Yeah they do.”) To them, raising taxes — and Joe Biden said it again today — raising taxes is about patriotism! (Boos from crowd)
To the rest of America, that’s not patriotism. Raising taxes is about killing jobs, and hurting small businesses, (cheers) and making things worse! (Cheers) This isn’t about anyone’s patriotism, it’s about Barack Obama’s poor judgement. (Cheers and applause)

Video here, h/t Yuval Levin, who observed: “Joe Biden’s comment about raising taxes and patriotism this morning opened the door nice and wide for the McCain campaign, and here is Sarah Palin walking right through.”
FRIDAY: Double heh:

Thanks, Jonah!

Idiots abound…

…and it seems like this would just be a fabulous way to identify some of the more pestulent ones.
