Honduras Standoff Continues

Do you remember the kid who backed down from a fair fight and then called his friends, stood behind them, and THEN talked tough? That kid is Manuel Zelaya and his friends are The Organization of American States (OAS), the United Nations, Hugo Chavez, Daniel Ortega, the Castro Brothers, and yes, Barack Obama.

Zelaya was removed as president of Honduras on June 28th by his country's Supreme Court, its Congress, and its Military. Now he's "All That". Or is he?

Reuters reports on the fact that his replacement, Roberto Micheletti, is not backing down (nor should he). As the saga plays out, the truth begins to reveal itself. Even Democrat U.S. Congressman Eliot Engel from New York has changed his tune.

Reuters quotes Mark Ruhl, a specialist on Honduras.
The longer this goes on, the better it is for Micheletti.

Micheletti needs to hold on.

VIDEO: Obama Teleprompter CRASHES!

And you thought Barack needs two teleprompters when he speaks so he can look at both sides of the audience.. That's only part of the reason. Imagine what would have happened if the one that crashed was the only one THE ONE had.

Perish the thought. His political career is as reliant on at least one teleprompter as an airplane is reliant on at least one propeller.

Real Clear Politics has the VIDEO HERE

Here's Jake Tapper's take at ABC.

Providing additional irony is the fact that Obama was trying to talk up a "Crashing" Economy when it happened.

Look at the bright side though. Obama and Biden collectively average a combined 1.0000005 televised speeches per day (with two teleprompters for each speech). Since inauguration, there has been about 180 days.

180 days x 2 teleprompters = 360 teleprompters used in Obama / Biden speeches

360 teleprompters x 1.0000005 = 360.00018 teleprompter crashing opportunities

Actual teleprompter crashes = 2

358.00018 / 360.00018 = 99.4444% success rate - NOT BAD!

WARNING: Math may not be exactly accurate. 45% of all statistics are made up anyway.

For Grins, here's the FIRST TELEPROMPTER accident, which belonged to Biden.

MP3 - Ben Barrack Guest Hosts for Matthew Hill

Today, I had the opportunity to fill in for Matthew Hill at IRN / USA Radio Network. Matthew is syndicated nationally. The show was one hour long.

Guest today was Bob Rinear of Invest Yourself, who talked about record profits at Goldman Sachs and bonuses paid out averaged out to be $600k each!

If you'd like to check out the show or download, here you go.

Here's a link to the show's webpage.

Chris Matthews gets YET ANOTHER Thrill!

This time, Chris Matthews' thrill courtesy of Sonia "Don't you DARE call me a racist" Sotomayor. I'm beginning to think that these thrills of his may actually be from bad shoes or too much coffee. In either case, he really should have it checked out. These thrills are starting to become chronic.

Real Clear Politics has the video.

The Obama Effect In Mississippi

As Toby Harnden of the London Telegraph crosses America for a reporting marathon, he's getting quite the education. His latest stop was in Alligator, MS where a white mayor was voted out and replaced by a black man who was a former employee of the mayor of 30 years (for some reason I'm reminded of Marty McFly in Back To the Future telling the black man in the coffee shop he would be mayor one day).

The new mayor is 38 year-old Tommie “Tomaso” Brown who decided to do battle against 71 year-old Robert Fava because Obama inspired him.

Said Brown,
Obama was a major influence on everybody. He inspired me.

Ain't Alligator lucky!

It didn't take long for Brown to find himself in the middle of his first "crisis" either. It appears he has some racists who have targeted a senior citizen (Fava) for their epithets. Some black youths apparently confronted Fava and were so overcome they couldn't keep their pants on according to a local named Jennifer Green.
They was pulling down their pants, shouting, ’Kiss my black ass, because we got a black mayor’, swinging their things around and throwing stuff

Isn't that quaint?

I'd say it's the type of crisis that might drive the new mayor to drink but according to Green, Brown has apparently already been driven to whatever place causes him to pop the top.
He says there’s going to be lots of changes and everything with all these kids running around here.
But he do the same thing they do, drinking beer and stuff. You’ve got to stay at home and study the town. Alligator is the kind of place where if you leave your door open, when you come back there ain’t nothing in your house.

Flav's take on diversity in the town of Alligator is intriguing as well.
Alligator is a quiet town, except when we get that Voodoo and Rap music.
