Just... wow!

Stunning, really.

It must be said, that like the breaking of a great dam, the American decent into Marxism is happening with breath taking speed, against the back drop of a passive, hapless sheeple, excuse me dear reader, I meant people.

And it gets better from there.  Please, do read the whole painfull thing.

Why I'll be leaving the GOP - Part 4672

Today's idiot Republican - Sen. Jeff Sessions.

The top Republican involved in the confirmation hearings for President Barack Obama's Supreme Court nominee says he would prefer his colleagues refrain from calling Sonia Sotomayor a racist.

Sen. Jeff Sessions said Sunday that he would prefer fellow Republicans stop attacking Sotomayor over remarks about her background as a daughter of Puerto Rican parents. Sotomayor in 2001 said her experiences affected her decisions on the bench.

Yeah, that's brilliant strategy when trying to keep someone with rather obvious racist tendencies off the bench - to stop calling them racists.

The Senate Republicans are dead to me.

But remember, Bush was the Nazi

Who needs the 1st Amendment when you have Hope'n'Change instead?

A new White House policy on permissible lobbying on economic recovery and stimulus project has taken a decidedly anti-First Amendment turn. It's a classic illustration of Big Government trying to control every aspect of a particular activity and in the process running up against civil liberty.

Check out this passage from a post on the White House blog by Norm Eisen, Special Counsel to the President on Ethics and Government Reform (emphasis added):

"First, we will expand the restriction on oral communications to cover all persons, not just federally registered lobbyists. For the first time, we will reach contacts not only by registered lobbyists but also by unregistered ones, as well as anyone else exerting influence on the process. We concluded this was necessary under the unique circumstances of the stimulus program.

Ah, the incredibly elastic concept of "unique circumstances" being used to justify the stifling of free speech.

Politics, Chicago-deep-dish style.

Or, put differently, "How dare you petition the government!"

Thanks a flipping ton, 52%.

Everything is going according to plan.

Except that I thought the plan was to, erm, avoid bankruptcy.

General Motors Corp. has cleared a couple of key roadblocks on the ailing automaker's route to an almost certain bankruptcy filing Monday.

So, what again was the purpose of pouring 10's of billions of Obamadollars into GM and Chrysler if they were both going to end up bankrupt anyway?

Oh, that's right - it was to make sure the bankruptcy would end-up accruing to the benefit of Zero's political allies.  Silly me - I forgot about The Plan, again.

The country is in the very best of hands.

The marvel that is modern, free-market (nominally, at least) healthcare.

Here goes...

I show-up at my PCP with suspicion of appendicitis at 07:50 yesterday morning.

By 12:15, I'm going in for a CT-scan at a nearby hospital.

Not 45-minutes later, the scan is done, has been read, the diagnosis confirmed, and I'm off to the ER.

Now, because it's nutty at the hospital yesterday it actually takes a little over 3-hours to get into the ER, and another 2 before I'm seen.  Everyone apologizes for the long wait.

I'm in surgery 75-minutes after seeing the first ER doctor, and out of surgery about 90-minutes later.

And here, some 15-hours after surgery to remove an inflamed appendix, I'm in my own home, ready to fly Air Percocet, and in pretty darn good shape otherwise.

A marvel, truly.

Glad this happened before Obamacare hits.

Queen of Scots

Much as I'm free to refer to myself by the subject title, Colin Powell is of course free to call himself whatever he wishes, including "a Republican".

But that doesn't change the fact that I'm neither female nor of Scottish ancestry - and that Colin Powell really isn't any more of a Republican than was Arlen Specter.

So, how much MSM-play do you think this story will get?

I'm guessing - none.

A new Gallup Poll, conducted May 7-10, finds 51% of Americans calling themselves "pro-life" on the issue of abortion and 42% "pro-choice." This is the first time a majority of U.S. adults have identified themselves as pro-life since Gallup began asking this question in 1995.

As Tom Blumer at Newsbusters said:
What a difference a radical, in your face, abortion-promoting president makes.

Spot-on, that.

Expect the MSM to dutifully ignore this 15-point swing in attitudes toward infanticideabortion.  It gets in the way of the narrative, you know.

Yep, it's sure great to have The AdultsTM back in charge, eh?

Can I state the obvious that if Pelosi were a Republican caught in this mess she would have been forced-out weeks ago and would already be an asterisk in history.  But, as we all know, the rules just don't seem to apply to Democrats.  Do they.

My, my - but this popcorn sure is tasty.

Well, if reality isn't going your way...

... then I suppose you can just make shit up.

You have to see this to believe it, and even then you'll have a hard time believing it. It's the Obama administration's deficit reduction program, otherwise known as "change the accounting." ...

Shazam! The government just made about $175 billion in deficits disappear (March's reported $956.8 billion compared to April's $781.4 billion through March).

Damn, The Unicorn Prince really is a miracle worker!

Well, not really.

Time flies

Remember last week?  When we were told the shockingly low unemployment numbers meant that we were over the recession hump and happy days were here again?

Well, forget it.

New jobless claims rose more than expected last week due partly to an increase in layoffs by the automobile industry, while the number of people continuing to receive unemployment benefits set a record for the 15th straight week.

Sheesh, there's that damn reality-thing again.

Hey, here's a thought...

Let's continue to hold some of these unlawful combatant scum indefinitely.  Yeah, that's the ticket.

You know, if I didn't know better I would suggest that Senator HopeyChangey was simply demagoging the issue during the campaign to score some cheap political points against Chimpy McBushitlerBurton and suck-up to the moonbats.

But that would never happen.  Would it?

Yeah, it's mostly a rhetorical question - but...

... if the President of the United States were actually trying to destroy the economy of the country - for whatever reason or none at all - what, precisely, would he be doing differently?

Seriously.

A question for all the Wall Street types who supported The Won...

So, how's Barack's ass tasting these days?

The Obama administration has begun serious talks about how it can change compensation practices across the financial-services industry, including at companies that did not receive federal bailout money, according to people familiar with the matter.

Yeah, I'm sure the Constitutional authority for that is right after the clause that allows the President of the US to bankrupt a private company and give the spoils to his political allies.

Hey, remember the good old days when the moonbats were up in arms over George Bush's "Imperial Presidency"?  Good times, those.

Good. Times.

Words fail.

Yeah, I'm sure Chris Buckley's dad would have voted for a far-left radical over John McCain, too.

And by that I of course mean I'm pretty sure he would never, in a million years, have done any such thing.  But hey, must keep to The NarrativeTM, and all that.

The apple did indeed fall rather far from this particular tree.

FWIW...

... I'm with the former Vice President on this one.

We already have one (ultra-)left party in the United States - it's called the Democrats.  If being more like them were the key to electoral success methinks the Massachusetts GOP wouldn't currently be outnumbered in the MA legislature by something like 9-1 (seriously, Google it).

I thank you for your past service to the country, Mr. Powell.  Now I thank you to STFU.

Memo to the Republican Party...

You probably haven't figured it out yet, but this is your cue to, you know, do something.

You now have, basically, the entire Democrat Party congressional leadership caught in The Big LieTM.  Do. Something.

Just about anything would be helpful at this point - and yes, just get past the fact that the MSM is too busy looking for shiny objects to distract the sheeple to care about this.  Do. Something.
