Though I never fully bought in to the Ulsterman (avatar pictured) interviews with an alleged 'White House Insider,' I posted many of them simply because of how interesting they were to read and how believable they seemed to be. Thanks to a commenter on an earlier post of mine, it looks like we can put a fork in Ulsterman's credibility - at least for now and at minimum until he comes forward with his identity. Even Woodward and Bernstein didn't hide theirs.

If you'd like to read Ulsterman's 'White House Insider' interviews, click here but read with a very skeptical eye.

Any alleged 'Insider' shouldn't be required to have his identity revealed. I say "his" because unless the 'Insider' is Marge Schott - not likely because she's dead - there aren't many women who would cuss like the Insider does and there are even less who would incessantly call a younger man 'kid.' However, Ulsterman must reveal his.

The most compelling posts by Munsterwoman involve screen shots of past Ulsterman articles that have since been scrubbed. It appears our anonymous blogger has a habit of inventing names and businesses that don't exist while simultaneously making his case.

A commenter on Munsterwoman's blog even claims to have discovered the true identity of Ulsterman.

Anyway, Ulsterman's "Insider" was wrong about Pelosi; he was wrong about Robert Gibbs (Gibbs is still employed); and his claim that Hillary is going to go against Obama in 2012 is at least being undermined by Hillary's latest comments about Secretary of State being her last job in public service.

I like to consider myself good at sniffing these things out and will give Ulsterman credit for at least getting me to entertain the notion that he may have been onto something.

But I'm done until I get at least one name and that name is the one belonging to the person masquerading as Ulsterman.

If there was one area that might cause a bit of head-scratching it's that the posts Ulsterman allegedly scrubbed seem to be inconsistent with his subject matter of late. That said, his stories should be read like one reads a novel UNTIL he at least releases his identity.

Texas talk show host Lynn Woolley nails what's wrong with the DREAM ACT in his latest column that appears in the Dallas Morning News. Aside from pointing out the eye-rolling string of words that make up the acronym that IS the Dream Act, Woolley highlights the incrementalism that is inherently part of the bill as well. As of today, an illegal alien woman can give birth to a legal American citizen simply by doing so on American soil. This new bill would allow that same woman to have given birth to that same child in Mexico five years ago but only bring that child to America to make him / her legal.

Lynn Woolley: Why the Dream Act should fail
07:32 PM CST on Friday, December 3, 2010

By some strange quirk of fate, the initials of the Development, Relief and Education for Alien Minors legislation now being considered by our lame duck Congress spells "DREAM." It should spell "AMNESTY," but that wouldn't have sent the right message to compassionate taxpayers who are being asked to give away the store.

The "store" in this case is a big prize: The act offers legal status to immigrants younger than 35 if they arrived in the United States before age 16 and if they complete two years of military service or college.

The Dream Act is the brainchild of liberal members of Congress, championed by Illinois Sen. Dick Durbin, who for years has been attaching it in some form to various pieces of legislation. It is a key component to the so-called "path to citizenship" that various immigrant groups have been demanding.

One of those groups is the Immigration Policy Center, which has issued a long list of reasons the Dream Act should be passed. Mostly, the IPC argues on humanitarian grounds that it's simply the right thing to do: "[Undocumented youth] have the potential to be future doctors, nurses, teachers and entrepreneurs, but they experience unique hurdles to achieving success in this country."

The argument is a non sequitur. Most of the students who are in the country legally have such potential, so what is the compelling reason to replace them in the pecking order for tough-to-get slots at the University of Texas or Texas A&M with students who are undocumented?

This is not technically news but it's a great use of facts to illustrate a much larger point regarding the South Carolina Senatorial election last month. Inexplicably, a guy named Alvin Greene won the Democratic party's nomination for U.S. Senate. Many speculated - and for good reason - that the voters there were so uneducated about the candidates, they gave Greene the nomination because his name reminded them of the 70's R&B singer, Al Green.

In light of what information about Greene then became available to voters in the run-up to the general, it should have been inconceivable that he would garner any real number of votes. Well, the truth is that despite many YouTube looks into who Greene really was, more than 358,000 South Carolinians voted for him.

Doug Ross makes an EXCELLENT point. Despite winning re-election in a landslide, Jim DeMint's opponent (Greene) actually proved how intellectually bankrupt so many people inside the Democrat party are. Yet, the leftwing media portrays Sarah Palin and her supporters as stupid. In fact, the case could be made that anyone who voted for Greene in the general - even after the spotlight revealed how inept the guy was - were exponentially more brain dead than anyone who voted for him in the primary based on musical tastes.

There are so many Alvin Greene moments to choose from to underscore the point but this should do the trick.

One final point on the number of zombies in America. Going back one year, Rasmussen's Presidential Approval Index has shown the number of Americans who strongly approve of Barack Obama's job performance has virtually remained unchanged - hovering between 20% - 30% consistently. It would not surprise me in the least if close to 100% of the 358,069 voters who pulled the lever for Greene are in that category as well. I've been lightly scratching my head on the approval index but no more. The answer is no more complicated than stupidity. Period.
