Heresy anyone? Iowa Senator Tom Harkin (D) actually has the unmitigated gall to compare Harry Reid to Job, Solomon, and Samson based on his ramming an unconstitutional health care bill through the senate while paying off Senators in order to do it. True humility wouldn't permit Harkin to make such claims nor would it allow an un-indicted criminal feign humility while secretly beaming with arrogance.

No one should really be shocked by this but in light of what ACORN has been caught enabling, it's still shocking. Representative John Conyers (D-MI) heading the Judiciary Committee should be shocking too. So should the fact that multiple ACORN offices across the United States were willing to help a pimp and a prostitute get housing assistance so they could open up a brothel that offered illegal alien children from El Salvador to its customers.

But alas, in addition to there being nothing wrong with that, the filmmakers who exposed it could be in violation of state laws and subject to prosecution.

According to POLITICO:
A Congressional Research Service report commissioned by the House Judiciary Committee says ACORN hasn’t violated any federal regulations the past five years.

The report, released by Judiciary Committee Chairman John Conyers’s (D-Mich.) staff Tuesday evening, also reports that the undercover filmmakers that allegedly caught employees of the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now breaking the law may have violated state law in their filming operation.
Conyers, whose district includes the northwest section of Detroit, would seemingly be better served by looking in the mirror. Detroit is an absolute disaster.


Jamie Glazov has put forth a very likely reason why leftists cannot come to grips with the fact that there are Jihadists on American soil who want to kill them. The most blatant example is the Fort Hood shooting, both in terms of the devastation left by Hasan as well as his past military record. There are still several mindless lefties who refuse to call it what it is.
As the United States prepares to try Nidal Malik Hasan for 13 counts of murder and 32 counts of attempted murder at Fort Hood last month, few question the suspect’s guilt, but many disagree about his motives. Yet the evidence is now conclusive: the Fort Hood massacre was an act of Islamic terror. Before his shooting spree, Hasan told colleagues that non-Muslims were infidels condemned to hell and that they should be beheaded and have boiling oil poured down their throats. Hasan traded 18 e-mails with Anwar al-Awlaki, an al-Qaida recruiter. On the morning of the massacre, he gave his neighbor a Koran as he was departing for the base, telling her that he was going to do “good work for God.” Wearing Pakistani garb, Hasan shouted “Allahu akbar” as he began firing at U.S. troops.

Despite the plentiful evidence, however, leftists refuse to accept Hasan’s Islamic inspiration. We’ve heard the rationalizations: Hasan was a nut; the stresses of serving in the military drove him crazy; he experienced anti-Islamic discrimination; anyone is capable of “losing it” under such stressful conditions; and so on. These reflexive denials are a logical continuation of the Left’s long tradition of denying the evil of our totalitarian enemies—or, when forced to acknowledge them, blaming them on the United States.

Personally, I would add to Glazov's theory the notion of Stockholm Syndrome.



Kathleen wouldn't be able to hide from this one even if she walked around with her face in her sleeve all day. She was caught on tape in April of 2007 saying that she wanted to eventually get to single payer (gov't run healthcare) but advocated doing "everything we can" to close the gap.

Take note of how she explains exactly how the language in the Senate version of the health care bill will allow abortions to be taxpayer-funded. Nothing to worry about. Barbara Boxer helped to write this part.

It's all about "accounting"....



Strip away the fact that Obama speeches send thrills up his leg or the fact that he worked for Jimmy Carter. Heck, while you're at it, go ahead and overlook Matthews' outing himself on national television (insert joke here) that he's a "liberal". But this puts him in an entirely new class of classless individuals. To show esteem for Saul Alinsky, one almost has to either be an atheist or a satanist. After all, Alinsky dedicated his last book, "Rules for Radicals" to Lucifer.

Here is what Alinsky wrote in the dedication of his book, "Rules for Radicals"....
“Lest we forget at least an over-the-shoulder acknowledgment to the very first radical: from all our legends, mythology, and history... the first radical known to man who rebelled against the establishment and did it so effectively that he at least won his own kingdom — Lucifer.”
Uh, maybe everyone can stop wondering why the media has been giving Obama a pass for so long.

There are some thick-headed Republican senators out there who just never seem to wise up. Texas senator John Cornyn voted for TARP despite his constituents overwhelmingly telling him not to. Those constituents were proven right. Back in May, as Chairman of the National Republican Senatorial Committee, Cornyn threw his support behind Florida Governor Charlie Crist for the 2010 SENATE RACE there despite conservative objections that it was too early and that Crist was too moderate.

Lo and behold, Marco Rubio is now neck and neck with Crist. Instead of Cornyn deferring to the conservative base of the Republican party after they proved him wrong again, he continues to double down, saying that conservatives need to be more realistic in their expectations in the 2010 elections.

Imagine how this race would look like now had the The National Republican Senatorial Committee, chaired by Cornyn, withheld support for Crist and let things play out. Erick Erickson at RED STATE also points out that the NRSC also scoffed at Pat Toomey's chances in Pennsylvania against Arlen Specter. Specter is now a reeling Democrat who looks very vulnerable.
So Cornyn and the NRSC jump into bed with Charlie Crist because of the poll numbers in Florida and now Crist is tied to or behind Marco Rubio. The NRSC also said Pat Toomey was not a viable alternative to Arlen Specter and even after Specter jumped to the Democrats, the NRSC worked valiantly to try to convince every other Republican in Pennsylvania to get in so they wouldn’t have to deal with Toomey.
Erickson goes on to explain the issue Cornyn and Republicans seeking to put up moderate candidates are facing:
Here is the problem for the NRSC and the Republican Establishment.

They are panicked.

The tea party movement outpolls the GOP.

The conservative challengers are performing as well as or better than the establishment picks.

The NRSC lost in Pennsylvania.
The NRSC is going to lose in Florida and California.
The NRSC is losing in Kentucky.
The NRSC may very well lose in Colorado and New Hampshire.
On a different but related note, everyone needs to remember what happened in 2004. Rick Santorum, along with Bush, threw his support behind Specter in the primaries, thereby dissing Toomey at the time. Specter won and Pennsylvania had two Republican senators. In 2006, Santorum lost his seat to Democrat Bob Casey in part, due to a lack of conservative turnout. In 2009, Specter became a Democrat.

End result? In late 2006, Pennsylvania had two Republican senators. In 2009, it had 2 Democrat senators by following the moderate Republican model.

No thanks. Cornyn needs to pipe down and get in line.



As Allegory and British Prime Mangler Gordon Brown attempted to go on stage in Copenhagen, they took a wrong turn at Albuquerque, with Gordon falling on the sword, shamelessly laughing and apologizing for the faux pas as Allegory was steaming inside and completely unable to laugh at himself (perhaps because so many other people laugh at him). He doesn't seem very comfortable in that skin of his. He has become so pathetically and blatantly exposed as a fraud in recent weeks, I found it rather obvious that he took this more personally than Brown, who actually strikes me as being too oblivious to feel shame.

h/t to IOWAHAWK for also finding this very salient relic from Spinal Tap.



Pro-life Democrat Representative from Michigan, Bart Stupak has been somewhat vocal about his opposition to the language in the Senate bill that permits taxpayer funded abortions. He's also leading a contingent of other Democrats in the House who are saying they won't vote in support of the current bill unless the abortion language is changed.

With the way Democrats have been dropping like flies when it comes to standing up on principle instead of having a price, I'm not holding my breath that Stupak will stick to his guns either but it's an interesting development nonetheless.

In an interview with CNSNews, Stupak is speaking forthrightly in saying that he is being pressured by the White House directly to stop talking about the bill until "sell" him on the language. I wonder if that means bought off like Ben Nelson and Mary Landrieu.

Here is the actual quote:
“They think I shouldn’t be expressing my views on this bill until they get a chance to try to sell me the language. Well, I don’t need anyone to sell me the language. I can read it. I’ve seen it. I’ve worked with it. I know what it says. I don’t need to have a conference with the White House. I have the legislation in front of me here.”

According to the CNSNews Report:
Stupak said he is not alone in being pressured from the White House and the House Democratic leadership – other pro-life Democratic colleagues apparently are, as well. But they plan to hold firm, he said.

“We’re getting a lot of pressure not to say anything, to try to compromise this principle or belief,” Stupak said. “[T]hat’s just not us. We’re not going to do that. Members who voted for the Stupak language in the House – especially the Democrats, 64 Democrats that voted for it – feel very strongly about it. It’s been part of who we are, part of our make up. It’s the principle belief that we have. We are not just going to abandon it in the name of health care."
As Landrieu and Nelson are appearing very uncomfortable thanks to an engaged public, hopefully Stupak and his gang will take note. Then again, this White House has a way of mounting pressure the likes of which we've not seen in past administrations.

Stupak needs to prepare to be Alinsky'd. But he also needs to study Alinsky's Rule #1:
Power is not only what you have, but what an opponent thinks you have. If your organization is small, hide your numbers in the dark and raise a din that will make everyone think you have many more people than you do.
A rule tailor-made for bullying.

This one is like having your hand caught in the cookie jar and saying you're not a thief. Instantly, you're labeled a liar in addition to a thief. That's what Democrat senator Mary Landrieu (LA) does here. Instead of owning up to the "Louisiana Purchase" - her vote on health care - for $300 Million and saying she did it for her state and that's who she's elected to represent, she goes into denial, almost visibly attempting to make herself feel better about selling out.

On C-SPAN, Landrieu actually has the call to say, and this is a quote, "I can't be bought". Whatever makes you feel better, Mary but you betrayed your country for a price. The moniker given to what she did has also got to sting because it is so appropriate and likely to stick for years to come as the fruits of her vote become clearer and clearer.
