Should be obvious that not only is yours truly NOT advising Sarah Palin - if I was, I'd tell her not to stump for John McCain in the Arizona primary against J.D. Hayworth - but I'm clearly not advising McCain's opponent, Hayworth. If I was advising Hayworth, telling him to leave the Obama birth certificate issue alone would be at the top of the list. It's red meat for the DSCC and plays right into their hands.

It may be that Hayworth is simply trying to get media exposure but this isn't the way to do it. Obama is the master at mis-direction and birther-gate is a blind alley that leads to perpetual distraction. For the best arguments against pursuing the Birth certificate angle, visit Andrew Walden at Hawaii Free Press.

If Hayworth was smart, he'd tackle McCain on two fronts.

1.) Immigration. America's sheriff Joe Arpaio has already expressed support for Hayworth and all the signs point to him and McCain having a respectful but adversarial relationship. Hayworth should exploit this as much as physically possible. It might even end serve to neutralize the Palin effect.

2.) McCain didn't see the signs about Obama while average, every day Americans did well before the election. We can't afford to have someone who can't see a freight train coming at the country head-on. McCain didn't see it and Hayworth should be calling him on it.

It's government excess vs. we the people. Once again, a very well done video from Verum Serum. Once again, the music coupled with still-shot imagery and an occasional sound bite very powerful. Using a 'Lord of the Rings' theme, there is a subplot involving how health care was Ted Kennedy's lifelong mission. That life lasted almost long enough for Kennedy to help ram it through.

Not only was he unable to do that but the people of Massachusetts dumped that mission into the harbor.

Last week, Barack Obama said his administration and agenda ran into a "buzzsaw". He should thank House minority leader John Boehner for clarifying exactly what that buzzsaw was because Obama obviously got blindsided and doesn't seem to know. Boehner, speaking openly to Obama, tells him who that buzzsaw really was - the American people.

Remember when Obama mocked those Tea Parties?

Over the years, current U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder has done plenty to make people question his motives. Whether it be his role in pardoning two Weather Underground terrorists, Marc Rich, or members of the FALN during the Clinton administration or his time as a partner at Covington Burling, a law firm that defends Gitmo detainess pro-bono, more people are asking questions about his loyalty.

The New York Post writes:
Whose side is the Justice Department on: America's -- or the terrorists'?
It's just insane that a lawyer who defended Osama bin Laden's driver and bodyguard -- and who sought constitutional rights for terrorists -- could be one of the Obama administration's top legal officials.

But there's Neal Katyal, occupying a top perch at the Justice Department as the principal deputy solicitor general.

Then there's Jennifer Daskal -- who just months ago was an anti-Guantanamo activist. Now she's in Justice's National Security Division -- working on detainee issues.

Talk about conflicts of interest.
Not only is it a conflict of interest issue but one of double standards as the piece explains further that private sector employees wouldn't get away with such things.

This one sent in by TimBo from Chicago. John Kass, who provided necessary insight into the Chicago Way when the Blagojevich story broke in late 2008, is suggesting that one year into the Obama administration, the soaring rhetoric of Hope has turned into a smidgeon of Hopium that Obama's teleprompter-writers are likely to hope gets smoked.
In his State of the Union address Wednesday night, Obama is expected to boast about freezing discretionary spending. Politically, this is a response to that Boston Tea Party that cost him his supermajority in the Senate. But he's freezing only a tiny fraction of the federal budget. And he's already spent us into the poorhouse.

The Republicans sneer that Obama speechifying about fiscal responsibility is like a fat man going on a diet after winning a pie-eating contest. But I remember the Republicans in full congressional power. You could identify them by all that sticky rhubarb filling running down their chins and jowls, and the crumbs from the crusts on their lapels.

So how can America prepare for Obama's newfound fiscal prudence?


Yes, Hopium, the stuff that numbs the nation, harvested from the lush green fros of the Happy Obama Chia Head and the Determined Obama Chia Head. Wednesday's speech calls for a special blend: 70 percent determined Obama and 25 percent Happy Obama. Let's fill the rest of the pipe with aromatic tobacco leaf from Turkey.

On Tuesday, the Congressional Budget Office buzz killers reported that the deficit smudged with Obama's fingerprints has risen to $1.35 trillion.
Read the whole thing as there is some interesting reading about some characters on the local Chicago scene that reminds us about how that Chicago way works.


Democratic congressman Rush Holt of New Jersey held a town hall this week and his first response to a slew of very tough questions that started with the premise that our country is bankrupt, started by attempting to dismiss that premise. Shortly after Holt says, "our country isn't bankrupt", he is met with a slew of scoffs and boos. Holt then proceeds to hem and haw to the point of rummaging through his papers trying to find a USA Today article of all things, to make his case. Notice I said, "trying to find".

What Hold did is all anyone can really do when faced with the cold hard truth in front of an informed audience. Pretty obvious he wanted to leave but couldn't.
