Not sure if he's already been re-named yet but he ought to be. Charlie "Crisp" is toast and the biggest reason is his alliance with Obama this time last year when the Stimulus bill was all the rage. Now, those who knew better are all EN-raged and Crisp was on the wrong side then. There's nothing he can do about it either.

Marco Rubio is pulling away and Crisp is going up in flames, mainly because of "The Hug".

Buh bye, Crisp. You're toast.

Watch "The Hug"

The question comes from Les Kinsolving, the one reporter who actually reported on Jim Jones in the years before the San Francisco / Guyana maniac fled to Guyana and ended his own life with the blood of countless others on his hands as well. In that respect, Kinsolving is rather un-sung and deserves a pulitzer. Then again, he worked for the right-leaning San Francisco Examiner at the time.

But I digress. Kinsolving asks Gibbs to respond to Newsweek's Evan Thomas identifying Obama as "sort of god" this past summer and Chris Matthews' comment that he forgot Obama was "black tonight, for an hour". Rather than refusing to comment, Gibbs rubs the nose of the White House's biggest lapdog in its own mess by saying the president doesn't pay attention to "cable television".

In light of the fact that both incidents aired over MSNBC, Gibbs made it known that Obama couldn't care less about receiving their adulation.

Is Obama tiring of even MSNBC?

Former CIA operative, Wayne Simmons calls both Robert Gibbs and David Axelrod "buffoons" when talking about their irrational musings about the would-be Christmas day bomber, Mutallab, having been adequately interrogated in less than an hour before lawyering up.

Appearing on Fox & Friends, Simmons also says that the notion that Mutallab could have given up everything he knew in less than an hour is "impossible". Pay attention to the clip of Axelrod on Meet the Press. Even he looks like he's totally uncomfortable uttering the words of his own pathetic argument.

We all remember where we were on January 28th, 1986. The image of the shuttle's two rocket boosters shooting ahead of the shuttle itself is a lasting one. Here is video of the disaster taken from a Florida resident in his neighborhood, using his new video camera. I'm surprised at the clarity of the explosion here. You can also hear the man quickly identify that there was a problem.

Ben Stein has a very interesting comparison in the American Spectator today. In one corner, the Black Panthers, who intimidated voters in Philadelphia during the 2008 presidential election. They were charged and the plaintiffs inside the DOJ had won a default judgment when the Panthers didn't respond to the complaint. Eric Holders DOJ dropped all charges and continues to stonewall efforts to determine why.

In the other corner is James O'Keefe, the young self-proclaimed journalist who was one half of the tandem that busted ACORN with undercover video last summer. O'Keefe was arrested along with three others inside Louisiana Senator Mary Landrieu's office last week while allegedly wiretapping or tampering with the senator's phones. I must admit that in the days following O'Keefe's arrest, I found myself thinking he went too far and probably got himself into trouble he asked for.

However, in light of the comparison between he and the Black Panthers, along with it becoming apparent that O'Keefe may not have done anything illegal, Stein's piece is quite interesting:
During the last Presidential election, a gang of men calling themselves Black Panthers showed up at a polling place in Michigan. They threatened any voter who did not vote for Barack Obama. This was witnessed and documented. (I am suspicious of their involvement with the real Black Panthers, whom I knew well in New Haven, who had a little more finesse along with many, many faults.)

The bullying was barely reported in the media. Even though it is an unequivocal violation of voting rights laws, it was decided by Obama's Attorney General, Eric Holder, not to prosecute the case at all. Holder is the legal genius who thought of holding the trial for the self-styled master mind of 9/11, Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, in downtown Manhattan instead of in a military setting. He has recently backtracked on that.

A few days ago, four young conservatives posed as telephone repairmen and entered the branch office of Senator Mary Landrieu of Louisiana in New Orleans. Their goal was to check to see if the phone system in the office was working. The men, under the leadership of a young media impresario named James O'Keefe, were querying why constituents of Sen. Landrieu had been unable to register negative feelings about Obamacare on the Senator's phone line. They had been told that perhaps the phones were out of order.
If it comes out that O'Keefe was unjustly skewered by the liberal media and was slandered / libeled after having done nothing illegal, he should sue.

If not, he should face justice, as should the Black Panthers who broke the law in Philadelphia.

Read the whole thing.


And you thought saying he forgot the president was "black for an hour" would be a low water mark not soon to be matched. It was racist. Period. However, Chris Matthews, while appearing on the Rachel Maddow show just two days later, compared the Republican party to the Khmer Rouge, saying that there is a "Re-education camp going on in that party".

Be sure to watch the video I've posted below this excerpt of Matthews, which is courtesy of NewsBusters:

Ok, forget for a minute that the NEA is referring to Saul Alinsky's "Rules for Radicals as recommended reading and that the Department of Education appears to be jumping on board. Also, forget for now that Matthews is quoted as calling Alinsky his "hero".

Now keep in mind that Obama's friend, Bill Ayers, belonged to a group that called for actual Re-education centers as relayed by the man who most successfully infiltrated the Weather Underground for the FBI. Here is Larry Grathwohl in 1982 explaining that Ayers & Company planned to "eliminate" anyone who couldn't be re-educated, a number Grathwohl maintains Weather Underground estimated would be 25 million (based on 1969 population figures).


h/t to Barrackaid #13 for this one. Not sure how I missed it LIVE but Limbaugh's open letter read aloud the day after the January 27th State of the Union is sincere, open, honest, and tough. I would actually be shocked if Obama hasn't heard this but if he hasn't, he needs to. His ideology is so engrained and his beliefs so hard-wired, I still doubt it would have much impact.

The painful truth.


Charles Pierce is a left wing ideologue whose musings via the written word are intended to be funny but come across as vile and contemptible. As NewsBusters points out, in 2003 he actually said that Mary Jo Kopechne would have been "comforted" by Teddy in her old age if she'd have lived. That one might just win the most absurd rationalization for manslaughter I've ever heard.

However, let's park that one for a minute. What Pierce wrote ten days before the recent election of Scott Brown in Massachusetts is amazing all by itself but I'm almost equally struck by Pierce's apparent failure to acknowledge that he was wrong. NOTE: I'm struck not by the fact that he's a liberal who didn't do it but by how a human being can be so blatantly exposed by his own words and not demonstrate one scintilla of humility.

Via NewsBusters, check out this excerpt from Pierce's January 10th open letter to Scott Brown:
The longest shot
Call it a Senate race if you want, but it’s not.

January 10, 2010

Dear Scott Brown: Well, we’re almost here, aren’t we? The end of a long, arduous, four-month campaign for a Senate seat that you have approximately the same chance of filling as you did the pilot’s chair of the Starship Enterprise. Things might not be looking too terrific for our Democratic president -- or, for that matter, for his good pal, our Democratic governor -- but the notion that Massachusetts would elect a Republican to fill the seat left vacant by Edward Kennedy was the property of people who buy interesting mushrooms in interesting places. You might as well expect the House of Windsor to be succeeded on the British throne by the Kardashian sisters. (And, by the way, if Teddy gets wind of how you claimed in your commercials to be the true heir to the tax-cutting legacy of his brother, the president, he’s going to come back from the dead and beat you severely over the head with a yachting cap.) But you’ve got a career now. In fact, I’d like to make you an offer. You may not have noticed, but your party doesn’t have much of what the sportswriters call a bench around these parts. I would like to make you the permanent Republican candidate for US senator. Seriously, you’re good at the job of being a candidate, and it’s going to be hard enough for your party to groom another state legislator every six years. Think about it. It beats working for a living.
After reading this, it should be obvious that Pierce should be chomping on crow while having egg all over his face but the reason liberals can spout off like that is apparently because they don't care or think about the consequences of their words. Pierce just keeps on going with crow feet sticking out of his meat collector and egg yoke in his beard (yes, Pierce makes silly comments in an attempt to be funny so I thought I'd return the favor).

Anyway, after seeing his boldly written - and boldly wrong - prediction in the light of the reality that Scott Brown did indeed win, I went looking for something Pierce had written. The Nation had posted what Pierce had written after the election. See if you can find any humility or contrition here:
2) Brown won in my part of the state, dammit. If you look at a map of Massachusetts, and you draw a vertical line on the western border of Framingham and another one at the eastern border of Springfield, Coakley didn't win a single city or town except tiny Harvard and the city of Worcester. The town where I grew up went 60-40 for him. I'm thinking of rewriting my birth certificate. And Doc's friend, the great Jim McGovern, better had get hustling because that's his district.

3) Most distressing of all, the Massachusetts electorate came out in favor of climate-change denialism and emphatically in favor of torture. In fact, his enthusiasm for waterboarding was probably the clearest and most unambiguous position that Scott Brown took on any major national political issue. (Some of the people interviewed here seemed to believe that Brown was going to D.C. to lower their property taxes.) Having spent years developing a foreign policy for the Norfolk, Bristol, and Middlesex state senatorial district, Brown concluded that he doesn't consider waterboarding torture--which, of course, makes him a liar and a coward, hiding behind semantics. And this from a guy in the JAG corps--which elsewhere employed some of the only heroes produced during the years in which the country degraded itself and its ideas, largely through the techniques that Scott Brown is so proud of, which is only another reason why we suck here in Massachusetts.
Looks like Charles got Pierced and has no clue how utterly ludicrous he looks, refusing to finish that crow and get a towel for that egg he's wearing.

Naked Emperor puts together another montage, this time culminating with 16 lies in Obama's State of The Union Speech by pulling out video of him taking an opposing side in the past and juxtaposing them with SOTU excerpts. Some are more blatant than others and a few of them might be considered a bit of a reach but there is NO DOUBT that Obama has gotten away with quite a few lies over the last year.

Count' em, 16 Lies in 7 minutes.
