The World’s Easiest Prediction: There Will Be An Ugly Reaction To This

This event will provoke the bottom-feeders to cynical scorn and ridicule. Photos here.

Parenthetical comment: when referring to the GOP team, a growing number of people say “Palin – McCain,” not “McCain – Palin.” Interesting. And possibly unprecedented.

Meanwhile…The Madness Spreads

Sooooo-eeee! Obama’s people are pretending (wink wink, nudge nudge) that he did not mean that, oh no (heh, heh, wink). Riiiiiiiiight. Drudge put a photo of Palin top center, and directly under it the huge headline, “Obama: ‘Lipstick on a pig, still a pig’.” True! The PenPo took a screenshot.

Obama either knew exactly how his words would be taken (which makes him filthy), or he did not (which makes him an idiot). There is no third possibility.

For his next metaphor, Obama moves from swine to stinking fish. Well, they say the evil is in the eye of the beholder, but in this case that may not apply.

Then the governor of New York says he has figured out that “community organizer” means “black person.” Oh?

Gee, ain’t this fun? (Heavy sigh.) And it’s only going to get worse.

Why? Because — Hell-loh!! — the culture war is a fact. The USA is once again struggling to define its present and chart its course to the future. The Brownshoe Battalions are trying to reassert their values against the political correctness of “metrosexuals” and “progressives.” Unfortunately this is happening while Western Civilization is under attack by Islamic fanatics who have perceived our cultural division. Those who would impose the universal caliphate still expect us to tire of the conflict and collapse, as the poet said, “Not with a bang but a whimper.”

Who Was That Masked Female??

Camille Paglia, that’s who. She’s a one-woman Mongol horde and New Prometheus, explaining it all to us. She’s not always on target, but you don’t want to be anywhere near that target when she opens fire. If you are not familiar with her take-no-prisoners candor, by all means correct that oversight.

All Perfectly Legal And Above-Board. But What Will The Voters Think?

“…Democrats have airdropped a mini-army of 30 lawyers, investigators and opposition researchers into Anchorage, the state capital Juneau and Mrs. Palin’s hometown of Wasilla to dig into her record and background.”

What, Exactly, Was Obama Trying To Accomplish When He Was A Community Organizer?

Almost nobody will read this investigative report, which is a pity.

Hoaxes That Aspire To Cult Status All Practice Censorship To Protect Themselves From The Truth

The great strength of Scientology is that it is able to tell its followers not to read or listen to anything critical of the nonsense Hubbard dredged out of his imagination. And so it is with anthropogenic global warming and its high priest, Al Gore.

Here is a snippet from an article you should read:

It would seem that Al Gore was correct then, to eschew any debate on the topic of global warming, and correct again when he ordered the press to stop presenting balance and dissent in their global warming coverage — sorry, primary sources on that story can no longer be found in the archives of the obedient press.

Notes On The Fourteen-hundred Year War

Here are two articles on a topic that should be of interest to every US voter: how Muslims around the world view Obama. First article. A different view is found in the second article.

Not all Iranians in Iraq are terrorists or jihadis, and some of those good folks may need the USA’s help.

Here’s a portion of a thoughtful article you might want to read in its entirety:

…there are still people around the world who hold the same ideology as that held by the 9/11 hijackers. They haven’t given up. Reports that they have discarded their ideology or given themselves over wholly to infighting are greatly exaggerated or based on a misunderstanding of what their motives and goals were in the first place.

I remembered the jihad against Israel, which pitilessly targets civilians — a 70-year-old woman, an Israeli tourist, was just this morning found murdered in Sinai.

I remembered the airplane plot in Britain, in which one of the plotters made his jihadist intentions very plain: “We are doing this in order to gain the pleasure of our Lord and Allah loves us to die and kill in his path.” He may have been referring to Qur’an 9:111, which promises Paradise to those who “kill and are killed” for Allah.

I remembered ongoing efforts in the U.S. to force Americans to accommodate Islamic law.

The obvious line for Palin’s speech writer to suggest to her: “I see Senator Obama got it wrong, yet again. I didn’t say ‘pig‘…I said ‘pit bull!!

Delivered with a big grin, that would hand Obama his head on a platter.
