Clinton campaign: Obama must answer for Rezko

Pot meet kettle...

FORT WORTH, Texas — Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign says rival Barack Obama has a lot of questions to answer about his relationship with indicted Chicago political insider Antoin “Tony” Rezko, whose federal corruption trial is scheduled to start the day before critical primaries in Texas and Ohio.

Howard Wolfson, Clinton’s chief spokesman, also told reporters today that if Obama doesn’t sweep the primaries on Tuesday, it will show that Democrats want the contest to continue. The answer belies earlier statements from top Clinton aides that she needs to win delegate-rich Texas and Ohio to stay in the race.

U.S. Navy ships move closer to Lebanon ( 9 in all )

Never a good sign...

WASHINGTON (CNN) -- The U.S. Navy has moved the guided-missile destroyer USS Cole and other ships to the eastern Mediterranean Sea off Lebanon, Pentagon officials said Thursday.

The deployment comes amid a political standoff over Lebanon's presidency, but the Navy would not say whether the events are linked.

The destroyer and two support ships are close to Lebanon but out of visual range of the coast, Pentagon officials said. Another six vessels, led by the amphibious assault ship USS Nassau, are close to Italy and steaming toward the other three, the officials said.

Obama Says He's Quit Smoking

Memo to Hussein, you haven't "sucessfully" quit smoking untill you've gone without for at least a year. This coming from someone with an intimate first hand knowledge.

WASHINGTON (AP) — Barack Obama said he has successfully quit smoking cigarettes despite the pressures of a closely contested and lengthy presidential campaign.

"I've been chewing on this Nicorette, which tastes like you're chewing on ground pepper — but it does help," the Democratic candidate said in an interview that aired Thursday on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show."

His wife, Michelle, had used his smoking as leverage when the two were discussing whether he should run for president. She would agree only if Obama agreed to give up smoking.

Obama Overtakes Hillary In Texas

The fat lady hasn't sung yet but she's definately clearing her throat.

It's starting to look like next Tuesday could be Hillary's last stand.

A new CNN /Opinion Research poll finds Obama ahead of Hillary Clinton Texas 50%-46%. In a similar poll taken a week before, Hillary held a 50%-48% lead.

Keep in mind these numbers are within the polls sampling error of plus or minus 3.5 percentage points for Democratic respondents, so statistically, the race is a virtual tie.

The poll was conducted February 22-24.

80th Oscars a Dud, Preliminary Ratings Show 14 Percent Lower Than Least-Watched Ceremony

Appears that the Mutual Admiration Societies incessant meetings no longer hold the snake fascination they once did.

LOS ANGELES — The Oscars were a ratings dud. More so than usual, even.

Preliminary ratings for the 80th annual Academy Awards telecast were 14 percent lower than the least-watched ceremony ever, according to Nielsen Media Research.

Nielsen said Monday that overnight ratings were also 21 percent lower than last year, when "The Departed" was named best picture.

Clinton Throws the Kitchen Sink

The desperation is palpable...

A photo showing Barack Obama dressed in Somali garb is being circulated by campaign staffers working for Democratic rival Hillary Clinton, according to

FOX News is working to confirm the report.

The photo was taken in 2006 during a trip through Africa. Obama was dressed as a Somali elder during a visit to southwestern Kenya, said the Drudge Report, which said a Clinton staff member had provided the photo to the Web site.

Ralph Nader, Cynthia McKinney confirm 'A Presidential Debate That Matters' in SF This Sunday; Cindy Sheehan will moderate


SAN FRANCISCO - Progressives will hold their own Presidential debate here Sunday when former presidential candidate Ralph Nader, Democrat-turned-Green Rep. Cynthia McKinney and others on the Green Party Presidential ballot Feb. 5 will participate in what is being billed as "A Presidential Debate That Matters."

The debate will be held Sunday, Jan. 13, at 2 p.m. at the Herbst Theater/Veterans Memorial Building, 401 Van Ness Avenue.

A NEWS CONFERENCE* is scheduled with candidates at 1 p.m., shortly before the debate begins. This is the best, and maybe only, opportunity to conduct interviews.

Ex-Rep. McKinney, former Green Party presidential candidate Nader (an undeclared candidate), university Hip-Hop professor Jared Ball, environmental engineer Kent Mesplay, actor/union organizer Jesse Johnson Jr. and Texas political organizer Kat Swift are confirmed as participants.

Nader Running for President

When even Barak Obama isn't liberal enough for you.

WASHINGTON - Ralph Nader said Sunday he will run for president as a third-party candidate, criticizing the top White House contenders as too close to big business and pledging to repeat a bid that will "shift the power from the few to the many."

Nader, 73, said most people are disenchanted with the Democratic and Republican parties due to a prolonged Iraq war and a shaky economy. The consumer advocate also blamed tax and other corporate-friendly policies under the Bush administration that he said have left many lower- and middle-class people in debt.

Democrat Undergrounds take:

Cokey Roberts is a closet Republican.
The GOP paid him to run,just like before.
The GOP paid NBC & Tim Russert to give Nader a platform.
Karl Rove paid off the NYT to run a bogus story about McCain to boost campaign donations.

New York Times hit-job on McCain hits stock more than McCain

Gray Lady down!

Yesterday's big lead story in the New York Times (NYSE: NYT) questioning Republican presidential hopeful John McCain's ethics surrounding his relationship with a female lobbyist, was nothing more than a political hit job and not only did it backfire as McCain is raising money off this story but also sent shares of the Times' stock slipping more than 6%.

McCain turns tables on Times

My enemy's enemy is my friend. Unwittingly the Times did more to endear conservatives to McCain than they could possibly have imagined.

Potentially lethal article triggers sophisticated and brutal pushback operation from McCain organization.

Sen. John McCain’s presidential campaign claimed vindication Thursday night after a sophisticated 24-hour counterattack turned a potentially lethal story in The New York Times into a conservative call to arms.

The piece about McCain’s friendly relations with a telecommunications lobbyist — long-discussed in political circles and planned for weeks by McCain operatives — was the first test of his ability to confront a public-relations crisis since becoming the GOP’s presumptive nominee.

But the reaction may have said as much about the mindset of the conservative movement on the brink of the general election as it did about McCain and his team.

“Even if they want to quibble within our own tribe, they’ll circle the wagons when we’re attacked by the Times,” said McCain campaign senior adviser Charlie Black.

Radical Shiite Cleric al-Sadr Announces Cease-Fire Extension

He's decided that being irrelevant is better than being wiped out.

BAGHDAD — Anti-U.S. cleric Muqtada al-Sadr announced Friday that he has extended a cease-fire order to his Shiite Mahdi Army by another six months, giving Iraq a chance to continue its fragile recovery from brutal sectarian violence.

His message was delivered by Shiite clerics during prayer services in mosques dominated by followers of the black-turbaned cleric.

"According to an order by Sayyid Muqtada, activities of the Mahdi Army will be suspended ... for another six month period," al-Sadr's aide Hazim al-Aaraji said, using an honorific for al-Sadr during his sermon at the Kazimiyah mosque in Baghdad.

Bush Approval Beats Congress 2-1

Pelosi and Reid are so lovable, how is it possible?

Approval ratings for Bush climbed to 34 percent from 31 percent last month, and positive ratings for Congress inched up from 14 percent to a still-low 17 percent.

Concerns about personal finances, job security, safety and the direction of the country all eased at least slightly in the last month, brightening the outlook for Americans who had slipped into a funk around the holidays.

Larry Sinclair Offered $100,00 for Polygraph (Updated and Bumped)

Pretty fair offer, now it's time to put up or shut up.

Big Head DC can confirm that is offering a legitimate $100,000 to Larry Sinclair, the man who has accused Barack Obama in a lawsuit of doing cocaine while performing an sex act on him while in a limo in 1999.

The owner of the site, Daniel Parisi, is a multi-millionaire and wants the truth to be known.

The site is also offering $10,000 plus the cost of airfare and hotel bills to Sinclair up front for taking the test, with the promise of the larger reward, if he passes.

Larry Sinclair Accepts $100,000 Polygraph Challenge

The truth will set you free they say, but the truth plus $100,000 will set you even freer. That's the conclusion our good friend Larry Sinclair has come to after considering the offer we made him yesterday: $10,000 to take a polygraph test over his Barack Obama sex and drugs claims, and $100,000 if he passes it.

After communicating via email to work out the logistics of the challenge, we were able to reach an agreement. Now, the plan is to get together with Sinclair and one of the best polygraph experts in the country, and ask him some questions – with the camera rolling, of course. As more details are made available we will post it here

This is getting interesting.

Update II: Tuesday's the Day

We're not ready to share all the details about our upcoming evening lie-detecting with Obama accuser Larry Sinclair, but there are a few things that we want to tell you – namely that we've agreed on a time and place to carry out our wager with Mr. Sinclair.

We're going to meet him on Tuesday, February 26th at an undisclosed location in New York City. We've picked a polygraph expert, too: a renowned expert who has been involved in quite a few high-profile cases who we're not going to name until the results are not only in, but have been verified by a second renowned expert.

Clinton targets pledged delegates

Stock up on Orville Redenbacher's, this is going to be good.

Richmond Mayor (and former first black Virginia governor) L. Douglas Wilder predicted riots in the streets if the Clinton campaign were to overturn an Obama lead through the use of superdelegates

Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign intends to go after delegates whom Barack Obama has already won in the caucuses and primaries if she needs them to win the nomination.

This strategy was confirmed to me by a high-ranking Clinton official on Monday. And I am not talking about superdelegates, those 795 party big shots who are not pledged to anybody. I am talking about getting pledged delegates to switch sides.

Fidel Castro Steps Down

And the collective Cuban heart soars...

HAVANA (AFP) - Ailing revolutionary icon Fidel Castro permanently gave up the Cuban presidency on Tuesday, ending five decades of ironclad rule of the island marked by his brash defiance of the United States.

In a message published by the online version of the Cuban Communist Party newspaper Granma, the 81-year-old Castro said he would not seek the presidency again when it is decided later this week.

"I neither will aspire to nor will I accept -- I repeat -- I neither will aspire to nor will I accept, the position of president of the council of state and commander in chief," Castro wrote, almost 19 months after undergoing intestinal surgery and handing power temporarily to his brother Raul Castro.

Quote of the Day

Michelle Obama:

>"What we have learned over this year is that hope is making a comeback. It is making a comeback. And let me tell you something -- for the first time in my adult lifetime, I am really proud of my country. And not just because Barack has done well, but because I think people are hungry for change. And I have been desperate to see our country moving in that direction and just not feeling so alone in my frustration and disappointment. I've seen people who are hungry to be unified around some basic common issues, and it's made me proud."

WOW, that's some statement from a potential First Lady.

Which is more racist: Voting for someone primarily because they are black or voting against someone primarily because they are black?

McCain says Clinton would make a good president

Not exactly the best way to endear oneself to a wary conservative base. This guys not only crazy, he's an idiot.

Appearing on ABC's "This Week with George Stephanopoulos" Sunday, senator John McCain tried to qualify his remark from 2005 that senator Hillary Clinton "would make a good president."

The likely Republican presidential nominee said Clinton "would be a good president in the respect that I think she has integrity, I think she has all of the qualities that are necessary, but she has a very different philosophical view, the liberal Democratic view, than I have, which is conservative Republican."

Attacks in Baghdad fall 80 percent: Iraq military

Unfortunately for the left Iraq is just not cooperating.

Attacks by insurgents and rival sectarian militias have fallen up to 80 percent in Baghdad and concrete blast walls that divide the capital could soon be removed, a senior Iraqi military official said on Saturday.

Lieutenant-General Abboud Qanbar said the success of a year-long clampdown named "Operation Imposing Law" had reined in the savage violence between majority Shi'ites and minority Sunni Arabs dominant under Saddam Hussein.

Top psychiatrist concludes liberals are nuts!

OK, tell us something we don't know.

WASHINGTON – Just when liberals thought it was safe to start identifying themselves as such, an acclaimed, veteran psychiatrist is making the case that the ideology motivating them is actually a mental disorder.

"Based on strikingly irrational beliefs and emotions, modern liberals relentlessly undermine the most important principles on which our freedoms were founded," says Dr. Lyle Rossiter, author of the new book, "The Liberal Mind: The Psychological Causes of Political Madness." "Like spoiled, angry children, they rebel against the normal responsibilities of adulthood and demand that a parental government meet their needs from cradle to grave."

While political activists on the other side of the spectrum have made similar observations, Rossiter boasts professional credentials and a life virtually free of activism and links to "the vast right-wing conspiracy."

Bill Clinton kingmaker quits Hillary, backs Obama

Portrait of an imploding campaign....

An on-the-ropes Hillary Clinton has suffered another blow, with a key strategist who helped put her husband in the White House revealing he is backing Barack Obama for president.

David Wilhelm, national manager of Bill Clinton's 1992 campaign and a former Democrat National Committee chairman, yesterday endorsed senator Obama, who is vying to be the first African-American US president.

"The only reason this race appears to be closer than it actually is is the number of superdelegates (Democratic Party officials and former leaders) that bought into senator Clinton's inevitability early.

"Too early, it seems," Mr Wilhelm, himself a superdelegate, said.

Military Intelligence: Hizbullah lost its number one figure


Reservist Military Intelligence officers tell Ynet of Imad Mugniyah's prowess as terrorist mastermind.

Former Mossad chief Danny Yatom: One of most dangerous terrorists ever.

"Hizbullah lost its most important operative in the organization in recent years," a reservist Military Intelligence officer told Ynet on Wednesday in reference to the killing of senior Hizbullah military commander Imad Mugniyah in an explosion in Damascus.

"He was an expert in carrying out terrorist attacks and at the same time, he was an expert in maintaining a low profile and knowing, for 20 years, how to evade the many that tried to get him,"

Contrary to popular media opinion, the sky is NOT falling.

WASHINGTON - U.S. retail sales rose a better-than-expected 0.3% in January, the Commerce Department estimated Thursday. The consensus forecast of Wall Street economists was for retail sales to fall 0.3%. Auto sales rose in January, a surprise given the weak domestic unit sales reported earlier in the month. Gasoline sales were also rose as a result of higher prices. Excluding autos, sales rose 0.3%, in line with expectations. Excluding gasoline, sales increased 0.1%. Excluding both autos and gas, sales were flat in the month.

Saudi Arabia bans all things red ahead of Valentine's Day

However gifts of any other color to their goats is encouraged.

(CNN) -- Saudi Arabia has asked florists and gift shops to remove all red items until after Valentine's Day, calling the celebration of such a holiday a sin, local media reported Monday.

With a ban on red gift items over Valentine's Day in Saudi Arabia, a black market in red roses has flowered.

"As Muslims we shouldn't celebrate a non-Muslim celebration, especially this one that encourages immoral relations between unmarried men and women, " Sheikh Khaled Al-Dossari, a scholar in Islamic studies, told the Saudi Gazette, an English-language newspaper.

Al-Qaida 'gone to ground' in Diyala

Euphemism for scared sh!tless and hiding.

U.S. and Iraqi military forces still hunt for terrorists in northern Iraqi provinces, but al-Qaida "has gone to ground," a military official said Monday.

During a phone conference from outside Tikrit, U.S. Maj. Gen. Mark Hertling updated media on Operation Iron Harvest by U.S. and Iraqi soldiers in the northern provinces, specifically Diyala province.

"Diyala is much safer today than it was a month ago. Citizens are less afraid to go out on the street, and markets are opening," Hertling said. "Al-Qaida has gone to ground. We are hunting them out, where they have gone to ground, or they have dispersed and we are pursuing them to new areas."

But he said work remains to be done to bring normalcy to the province.

US Is Already in Recession, Majority Says

Good grief, the ignorance of the American populace can be astounding...

WASHINGTON (Jan. 10) - Empty homes and for-sale signs clutter neighborhoods. You've lost your job or know someone who has. Your paycheck and nest egg are taking a hit. Could the country be in recession?

Sixty-one percent of the public believes the economy is now suffering through its first recession since 2001, according to an Associated Press-Ipsos poll.

The fallout from a depressed housing market and a credit crunch nearly caused the economy to stall in the final three months of last year. Some experts, like the majority of people questioned in the poll, say the economy actually may be shrinking now. The worry is that consumers and businesses will hunker down further and pull back spending, sending the economy into a tailspin.

"Absolutely, we're in a recession," said Hilda Sanchez, 44, of Waterford, Calif.

Maybe a better question would be "What is a recession?

al- Qaida in Iraq leaders fear movement crumbling, despair and defection

It's over for them and they know it.

BAGHDAD (AP) - A diary and another document seized during U.S. raids show some al- Qaida in Iraq leaders fear the terror group is crumbling, with many fighters defecting to American-backed neighborhood groups, the U.S. military said Sunday.
The military revealed two documents discovered by American troops in November: a 39-page memo written by a mid- to high-level al-Qaida official with knowledge of the group's operations in Iraq's western Anbar province, and a 16-page diary written by another group leader north of Baghdad.

In the Anbar document, the author describes an al-Qaida in crisis, with citizens growing weary of militants' presence and foreign fighters too eager to participate in suicide missions rather than continuing to fight, said Rear Adm. Gregory Smith, a U.S. military spokesman.

"We lost cities and afterward, villages ... We find ourselves in a wasteland desert," Smith quoted the document as saying.

The Sun Also Sets

Witch, WITCH!!!!

Climate Change: Not every scientist is part of Al Gore's mythical "consensus." Scientists worried about a new ice age seek funding to better observe something bigger than your SUV — the sun.

Back in 1991, before Al Gore first shouted that the Earth was in the balance, the Danish Meteorological Institute released a study using data that went back centuries that showed that global temperatures closely tracked solar cycles.

To many, those data were convincing. Now, Canadian scientists are seeking additional funding for more and better "eyes" with which to observe our sun, which has a bigger impact on Earth's climate than all the tailpipes and smokestacks on our planet combined.

And they're worried about global cooling, not warming.

Kenneth Tapping, a solar researcher and project director for Canada's National Research Council, is among those looking at the sun for evidence of an increase in sunspot activity.

Solar activity fluctuates in an 11-year cycle. But so far in this cycle, the sun has been disturbingly quiet. The lack of increased activity could signal the beginning of what is known as a Maunder Minimum, an event which occurs every couple of centuries and can last as long as a century.

MSNBC’s David Shuster Suspended for Chelsea ‘Pimped Out’ Comment

Mark Finkelstein reported on Newsbusters on the 7th, MSNBC's David Shuster made a rather interesting comment about Chelsea Clinton as he was hosting "Tucker" that evening. Shuster asked if Hillary Clinton's use of her daughter on the campaign trail seemed "like Chelsea's sort of being pimped out in some weird sort of way?" Well, NBC has now announced that they've suspended Shuster over the comment.... so much for free political speech.

In a press release, NBC says the following:

On Thursday's "Tucker" on MSNBC, David Shuster, who was serving as guest-host of the program, made a comment about Chelsea Clinton and the Clinton campaign that was irresponsible and inappropriate. Shuster, who apologized this morning on MSNBC and will again this evening, has been suspended from appearing on all NBC News broadcasts, other than to make his apology. He has also extended an apology to the Clinton family. NBC News takes these matters seriously, and offers our sincere regrets to the Clintons for the remarks.

Interesting that back in Sepyember Keith Odorman said President Bush was basically doing the same thing with General Petraeus.....

Keith Olbermann accuses Bush of "pimping General Petraus"

And the consequence? Zero, zilch, nada, nil. Funny how keen their sensibilities become when the Clintons as opposed to the Bush's are involved.

Adam Gadahn - American al-Qaeda Killed In U.S. Strike?

Keeping our fingers crossed this gets confirmed.

Adam Gadahn - American al-Qaeda Killed In U.S. Strike? February 7, 2008 UNCONFIRMED: Following unconfirmed reports of killing of a high-profile al-Qaeda commander Abu Laith al-Libi, there are now rumours that an American al-Qaeda militant Adam Gadahn, also known as Azzam al-Amriki, had been killed in the alleged Predator attack by the US on a house in Mirali, North Waziristan, a few days back.

32-year-old Adam Gadahn, who is American citizen belonging to southern California, has been accused by the US of praising the perpetrators of September 11, 2001 attacks on New York and Washington and attending al-Qaeda training camps in Afghanistan and Pakistani tribal areas.

According to sources, American officials who are yet to publicly confirm the killing of Abu Laith al-Libi, had reportedly sharing information with western media that most likely another most wanted figure, Adam Gadahn, has also been killed in the air strike by the CIA-operated unmanned drone on a house in Khushali Torikhel village near Mirali town.

Romney to Drop Out

Withdrawal could come at CPAC speech at 12:15 pm ET

Update: Helluva speech. Romney covered all the points that are important to conservatives and did so eloquently. McCain couldn't top this in a million years.

Will McCains speech be a olive branch to conservatives and even if it is will it make any difference?

Update II:
One question the pollsters are going to need to include in their standard questionaire.....Will you be "suicide voting"? I would hazard a guess that right now close to 20% of the core Republican base is seriously considering doing exactly that.

Update III: McCain bussed in support big time, Booos were still quite evident during the speech.

Mike Huckabee "Responds" to James Dobson: I Would Vote for John McCain

Huckleberry wants the VP spot so bad he can taste it.

Washington, DC ( -- Mike Huckabee "responded" to pro-life leader Dr. James Dobson on Wednesday morning when he said he would definitely support John McCain over either of the pro-abortion Democratic candidates. Dobson, and other conservatives, have issued statements saying they wouldn't vote if McCain is the GOP nominee.

On Tuesday, Dobson issued a statement saying he is disappointed that the Republican Party "seems poised to select a nominee who ... voted for embryonic stem-cell research to kill nascent human beings," and takes positions contrary to his on other political issues.

"I am convinced Sen. McCain is not a conservative, and in fact, has gone out of his way to stick his thumb in the eyes of those who are," Dobson, the head of Focus on the Family, added. " I cannot, and will not, vote for Sen. John McCain, as a matter of conscience."

Asked in general about those like Dobson or Rush Limbaugh who say they would not vote or pick someone else before they would support McCain, Huckabee said he disagreed.

"Well, you know what? They're not a conservative," the pro-life former Arkansas governor told CNN.

A Christian socialist like Huckabee wouldn't recognize bonafide conservatism if it bit him in his former fat a%%!

Republicans for Choice endorses John McCain

Another terrific endorsement...

Our first choice, Rudy Giuliani, did not win. He ran a campaign with a risky strategy and it didn't work. But our number two choice did win...John McCain. McCain came in second in a survey of our membership.

While he is personally "pro life" he has time and again reached out and worked with people across the spectrum. We know we can work with him to create common ground that will allow moderates and conservatives to come together to rebuild the GOP.

RFC joins with Rudy Giuliani in asking our supporters to consider McCain as they go to vote over the next few weeks.

How wonderful.

Appears the Brits have about the same number of delusional imbecile moonbats as us....

LONDON (AFP) - Britons are losing their grip on reality, according to a poll out Monday which showed that nearly a quarter think Winston Churchill was a myth while the majority reckon Sherlock Holmes was real.

The survey found that 47 percent thought the 12th century English king Richard the Lionheart was a myth.

And 23 percent thought World War II prime minister Churchill was made up. The same percentage thought Crimean War nurse Florence Nightingale did not actually exist.

Bob Dole scolds Limbaugh

This coming from arguably the worst candidate the Republicans have fielded in half a century.

Bob Dole, the former Senate Republican leader, wrote an insistent letter to Rush Limbaugh on Monday and suggested that for the good of the party, the conservative talk-show host should stop his strafing of Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.).

On Monday's show, Limbaugh asserted that McCain has "lied about his reason for opposing the Bush tax cuts," and added: "I think McCain has an animus toward the Republican Party. I think ever since South Carolina 2000 he's had it in for the Republican Party, and one of his objectives is to destroy it and change it."

McCain, the front-runner for the Republican presidential nomination, has always had a shaky relationship with the party’s conservative base.

Death Photo of War Reporter Pyle Found

None better before and most definately since...

NEW YORK (AP) - The figure in the photograph is clad in Army fatigues, boots and helmet, lying on his back in peaceful repose, folded hands holding a military cap. Except for a thin trickle of blood from the corner of his mouth, he could be asleep.

But he is not asleep; he is dead. And this is not just another fallen GI; it is Ernie Pyle, the most celebrated war correspondent of World War II.

As far as can be determined, the photograph has never been published. Sixty-three years after Pyle was killed by the Japanese, it has surfaced—surprising historians, reminding a forgetful world of a humble correspondent who artfully and ardently told the story of a war from the foxholes.

Zogby: Romney leads McCain by 37-34 in CA

I think McCain's pi$$ poor performance in Wednesday's debate is beginning to show up in the polls.

Romney leads McCain by 37 percent to 34 percent in California. The poll's margin of error is 2.9 percentage points.

"California could be Romney's last stand," Zogby said. "If he wins there, it may not be a whole new ballgame, but it can give those Republicans who oppose McCain hope they still have a chance to stop him."

Saturday, February 02, 2008


We have long suspected that John McCain may be a skoach unstable. Thanks to our friend Bill for pointing out this great piece at Radiopatriot . It appears that others a good deal more important than us think so as well.

The number of fellow Senators who think John McCain is psychologically unstable is large. Some will admit it publicly, like Thad Cochran who says, "The thought of his being president sends a cold chill down my spine."

Others relate times when McCain screamed four-letter obscenities right in their faces in the Senate cloak room, like Dick Shelby, Rick Santorum, or Jim Inhofe. "The man is unhinged," one Senator told me. "He is frighteningly unfit to be Commander-in-Chief."

That John McCain is clinically nuts is scary enough. What worries a small group of GOP Senators and Congressmen even more is a deep and dark skeletal secret in McCain's glorified past to which they are privy, and which the Clintons will use to blackmail him.

Read the rest, it's downright chilling.

Romney Appoints Hazleton Defender Kris Kobach To Advisor On Immigration

Whether panderering or genuine this is a good move...

Well I am absolutely stunned. After wondering for months about how serious Romney was on tackling illegal immigration and the strange endorsement of Tom Tancredo after dropping out of the race, Romney has issued the coup de grace. Mitt Romney has appointed Immigration Warrior Kris Kobach to his advisory staff.

Who is Kris Kobach? Well you may remember Kris as the lead attorney in defending Hazleton, Pennsylvania's Illegal Immigration Relief Act. Kris has been a leader in the fight against illegal immigration in this country and his addition to the Romney team shows that he is deadly serious about ending illegal immigration.

I'm telling you, I'm sitting here just absolutely stunned. That is how unforeseen this was to me.

BAGHDAD (AP) - Two mentally retarded women strapped with remote-control explosives—and possibly used as unwitting suicide bombers—brought carnage Friday to two pet bazaars, killing at 73 people in the deadliest day since Washington flooded the capital with extra troops last spring.

The coordinated blasts—coming 20 minutes apart in different parts of the city—appeared to reinforce U.S. claims al-Qaida in Iraq may be increasingly desperate and running short of able-bodied men willing or available for such missions.

But they also served as a reminder that Iraqi insurgents are constantly shifting their strategies in attempts to unravel recent security gains around the country. Women have been used in ever greater frequency in suicide attacks.

Mass Exodus from McCain

The conservative wing of the Republican party is not only not jumping on the McCain bandwagon they are doing everything in their power to despoke it's wheels.

Rush Limbaugh was the first when he stated that he would likely not support the Republican nominee if it turns out to be McCain. James Dobson has said essentitially the same thing.

Last night Ann Coulter shocked many by stating unequivocally that she would campaign and vote for Hillary Clinton if McCain was the Republican nominee.

And after bashing McCain on H&C last night one of our favorite Senators, Rick Santorum, came out forcefullyfor Romney.

Will this have a cumulative effect? Who knows but one thing for sure, a significant number of core conservatives will sit out this election if McCain wins the nomination and I personally believe that number will NOT be offset by a pick up of moderates.
