For Obama

Phil Spector Wears 'Barack Obama Rocks' Pin To Murder Trial Hearing

The old adage about birds of a feather applies to moonbats, too, and Obama is gathering quite a collection...

Wordy Book

If people who love food and cooking shows are called 'foodies', then it follows that those who love words are called 'wordies'.

For all you wordies... you know who you are:

Reading the OED: One Man, One Year, 21,730 Pages by Ammon Shea

"From abluvion to zyxt - a year long account of reading the Oxford English Dictionary."

Zyxt sounds like a great word to use on Scrabble.

I'll keep my eyes open for this book.

Kite Sighting

I heard their calls before I saw them. A pair of swallow-tailed kites were flying over my house yesterday, gliding effortlessly back and forth, for minutes.

It was a beautiful sight.

Randolph Frederick Pausch 1960-2008

Wikipedia Entry For Randolph Frederick Pausch

I bring up Dr. Pausch's passing not only because he was an inspiration to so many, especially with "The Last Lecture" speech, but because it caught my eye that he was a devoted Star Trek fan. In fact, Pausch was invited by film director J. J. Abrams to film a role in the upcoming Star Trek movie in which he also has a line of dialogue.

A kind of immortality, perhaps. I'll be watching for him.


Banned By Google

From comes:

Blurred Out: 51 Things You Aren't Allowed To See On Google Maps
I don't know how well researched this article is because I suspect there are way more than just 51 blurred out areas on the planet.

Speaking of 51... has anyone checked out Area 51 in Rachel, Nevada recently. Last time I looked, it was a big white blob shaped like Rosie O'Donnell's head.

Hmmm... coincidence?

Comical Outrage

There has been much outrage over the Obamas on the cover of The New Yorker magazine lately. Do you remember the same outrage over the above magazine cover portraying Clarence Thomas as the right's lawn jockey?

...or when Condi Rice was portrayed as Bush's big-lipped parrot?

... or as the know-nuthin' black character portrayed by Butterfly McQueen in "Gone With The Wind"

Of course not. The left only finds outrage when one of their own is satirized.

Alicia Colon has a great piece on the subject... Cartoon Outrage Or Hypocrisy

I say the left should stop whining and find a sense of humor.

Military Votes

From comes this infuriating article by Bob Novak:

The Soldier Voting Scandal

Read it and weep for the soldiers who can die for their country, but despite the technological advances of our time, are still not able to consistently vote in their country's elections.


Is the MSM too busy over-covering Obama's first (and hopefully, last) foreign policy
trip to spend a few minutes on this story?

You bet.

Blog Suits

Rise In Lawsuits Against Bloggers

In order to avoid having to buy bloggers insurance, referred to as media liability insurance, I'll just stick to blogging the facts.

Mt Washington

One of the things we did during our recent vacation was drove up Mt. Washington... all 6,288 feet of it.

Mr. Cube drove. I cringed. Personally, I like guard rails...

See for yourself how scary it is... Mount Washington Auto Road

And yes, at the summit we got a bunch of bumperstickers, t-shirts, magnets, pens, shot glasses, and a mug.

My personal favorite is a pin that reads, "I survived Mt Washington Auto Road"

I'm glad I did it once.

Vacay Over

Not that many have noticed, but I'm back from vacation in New Hampshire and Cape Cod.

Regular postings should resume once I've recovered...

It's good to be back :-)

Just Like A Democrat

How Chuck Schumer Caused The Second Largest Bank Failure In US History

I can't look at Chuck Schumer without thinking of a gargoyle. His latest deed is certainly in keeping with the image.

What will it take to vote this guy out of office?

Mwah Moment

I saw this photo on Drudge and it looked like a 'mwah moment' to me.


BTW the only poll that counts is the one in November.

Food Dog

Beijing Takes Dog Off The Menu For Olympics

The ChiCom directive "advocated" that all restaurants serving dog suspend it during the Olympics but made no mention of the many popular establishments with donkey on the menu.

Whose bright idea was it to award China the Olymics, again?


Tony Snow 1955-2008

Cat Blog Friday

For this Cat Blog Friday...

... a piggy-nosed kitty in a cube.

Why this photo, you ask? This photo, currently on our desktop, is of our cat, Pepper. She's beautiful, a veritable super model of cats, except for nose, which looks large because it is brown. Anyway, long story short, my oldest daughter thought it would be fun to alter her nose in the photo, and now she's Piggy Pepper.


Happy Friday, everybody!

I won't subject you to a Obama video, but World On The Web has a good treatment of Obama's globalist view on American's lack of bilingual skills:

Obama: Make Sure Your Child Can Speak Spanish

The fact that we Americans go to Europe speaking nothing but English is an embarassment to the worldy, Mr. Obama.

Well, I say keep showing your true colors, Obammy, because we Americans just love hearing how bad the USA is compared to the European Union. We love to be preached to by an effete, elite, socialist who harbors a hatred of true Americans.

Keep yapping.

Sameh El-Shahat, Egyptian-born resident of the UK, argues that George W. Bush has been the most under-rated president... ever.

Holy Cows: George W Bush - Buffoon Or Great Leader?

How refreshing to read something that doesn't slam President Bush, a good and decent man who doesn't deserve the venomous hate the liberal left, and some on the right, heap upon him.

I would like to hear what ex-Ambassador Joe Wilson has to say about that.

No Couch Potato

Lawn-chair Balloonist Drifts From Oregon To Idaho

Kent Couch flew a lawn chair rigged with helium-filled balloons more than 200 miles across the Oregon desert Saturday, landing in a field in Idaho.

That's an exciting way to spend your Fourth of July weekend. I'm glad he didn't kill his fool self.

Happy Fourth, everybody!

Singer Opts For 'Black National Anthem' Over 'Star-Spangled Banner'

This incident in Denver is just the beginning. The liberal left will run rampant over every institution we Americans hold dear if they are allowed to run all three branches of the government.

One more reason to say NO to Obama in November.

I'm thinking of printing up bumperstickers that read:

Just say NObama!

Potentially Offensive License Plate To Be Replaced For Free

The North Carolina state Division of Motor Vehicles notified nearly 10,000 holders of license plates with the letter combination "WTF" that they can get them replaced for free.

I'm not in the Raleigh area, but I don't think I'd trade mine in if I got one.

Affirmative Danger

Michelle Obama's Inferiority Complex

Dinesh D'Souza treads where most journalists dare not go by highlighting the dangers of affirmative action.

He provides a typical passage of Michelle Obama's college thesis:

"By actually working with the Black lower class or within their communities as a result of their ideologies, a separationist may better understand the desparation of their situation and feel more hopeless about a resolution as opposed to an integrationist who is ignorant to their plight."

Picking out the mangled grammar and the misspellings is the most interesting part of this snoozefest piece of writing.

Michelle Obama continues, "Every step of the way, there has been people telling me what I couldn't do."

Good gravy! Maybe them peoples is right!
