A revolution begins

It was – for the second time in Massachusetts history – the shot heard round the world, or at the very least from coast to coast and surely in the halls of Congress. Scott Brown won this one fair and square with his down-to-earth charm, his hard work and his forthright position on issues – and with the help of that much-disparaged by the opposition pick-up truck. But it is also true that Brown was the right candidate at the right time with the right message. And it’s that message that the White House and congressional Democrats can no longer ignore. After all, if the people of Massachusetts can send a Republican to the U.S. Senate to fill the seat Ted Kennedy had a lock on for 47 years, then the revolution has indeed begun. [Democrats all over the country will be skidding in their own crap scrambling to sprint back to the center because the 3 to 1 ratio of Democrats over Republicans in Massachusetts shows their sorry asses are in some serious trouble now that the GOP owns one of the state’s Senate seats…ed]

Globe jumps the gun in online map goof

In a Dewey beats Truman blunder, boston.com posted an online map of Massachusetts voting results declaring Attorney General Martha Coakley the winner of yesterday’s U.S. Senate election. Whoops. There’s only one problem, guys – the polls were hours away from closing and Coakley was upended in a 5-point blockbuster by state Sen. Scott Brown (R-Wrentham). “It was a test on a tool and it meant nothing. I don’t know how these things happen,” said the executive assistant to the editor of boston.com. [“Goof” my ass. The left wing lamestream media decided to stoop to new depths trying to help their candidate get elected and got caught…ed]

Dazed Democrats rethink entire strategy

Scott Brown has turned this town upside down. Usually, the tendency among political reporters and operatives alike is to overreact and overinterpret elections. And there are caveats to the stunner in Massachusetts. (SNIP) There is no way for Democrats to spin an upside to losing their 60th vote in the Senate. Without it, the health care bill that passed one month ago with 60 votes would go down today. [If Democrats can get their asses thrashed this badly in royal blue Massachusetts they can be beat anywhere in the land come November…ed]

Reid promises to press ahead on health care

Majority Leader Harry Reid says Senate Democrats will press ahead with President Barack Obama’s health care overhaul despite the loss of a Massachusetts Senate seat to a Republican. Speaking on the Senate floor Wednesday, Reid offered a list of Senate accomplishments last year, from the Cash for Clunkers program to expanding national service programs. He said in the coming year, the Senate would ensure all Americans affordable health care. [What’s that flushing sound I hear? Why it’s more tone deaf Democrat politicians’ careers getting flushed down the toilet I believe…ed]

Claire McCaskill: No forced Senate health care bill

Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-Mo.) has joined Sen. Jim Webb (D-Va.) in warning leaders not to try to push a revised health care reform bill through the Senate before newly elected Republican Scott Brown arrives. McCaskill said Wednesday morning that the agenda is “going too far, too fast” and that it would be a “huge mistake” for Democrats to force a vote on a new bill in the Senate before the new senator from Massachusetts is seated. “As I said to somebody last night:, everybody needs to get the Washington wax out of their ears and listen and pay attention that people out there believe that we are going too far, too fast,” McCaskill told POLITICO. [Let the previously mentioned skidding begin as the idiotic Democrats begin to figure out this Brown victory in Massachusetts and the GOP governorship victories in Virginia and New Jersey show we’re not interested in their left wing “progressive” agenda. Let’s keep the ball rolling all the way through until November!…ed]

Barbara Boxer’s Fundraising, Poll Numbers Spell Storm Clouds for Difficult 2010 Re-Election Campaign

Carly for California Deputy Campaign Manager for Communications Julie Soderlund today issued the following statement in response to news about Barbara Boxer’s fundraising in the last quarter of 2009: “Barbara Boxer should be a very worried incumbent senator today. Not only did Carly out-raise Boxer in just 60 days to the tune of 2 to 1, but the polls are showing that, going into a tough election year, Boxer can’t earn the support of more than a majority of voters and that Carly is within three points of beating her after just two and a half months in the race. [Massachusetts hadn’t elected a Republican U.S. Senator (and he was a liberal RINO who beat a conservative Democrat) in nearly four decades and come to think of it, neither has California. Let’s ‘hope’ that the voters in CA ‘change’ that fact in 10 months…ed]

Obama’s TSA Nominee Withdraws Amid ‘Political Agenda’

President Obama’s Transportation Security Administration nominee is withdrawing his nomination, saying he has become a lighting rod for those with a political agenda. “I was extremely excited about the opportunity to lead the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) and fulfill Secretary Napolitano’s objective to develop it into the best organization of its kind in the world, however, it is apparent that this path has been obstructed by political ideology,” Erroll Southers said in a written statement. “This partisan climate is unacceptable and I refuse to allow myself to remain part of their dialogue. The TSA has important work to be done and I regret I will not be part of their success,” he said. [Another affirmative action selection by Obama bites the dust. This guy lies to Congress, gets caught then blames the Republicans for having to withdraw his nomination. What a tool. Hey maybe Obama can find one person out of 300 million Americans who isn’t a tax cheat, crook or liar to work in his administration in place of this yeahoo…ed]

The Fort Hood Report: Why No Mention of Islam?

The U.S. military’s just-released report into the Fort Hood shootings spends 86 pages detailing various slipups by Army officers but not once mentions Major Nidal Hasan by name or even discusses whether the killings may have had anything to do with the suspect’s view of his Muslim faith. And as Congress opens two days of hearings on Wednesday into the Pentagon probe of the Nov. 5 attack that left 13 dead, lawmakers want explanations for that omission. [The insipid political correctness nonsense in this country is going to get thousands more Americans killed.

He’s Done Everything Wrong

He’s misjudged the character of the country in his whole approach. There’s the saying, “It’s the economy, stupid.” He didn’t get it. He was determined somehow or other to adopt a whole new agenda. He didn’t address the main issue. (SNIP) I’m very disappointed. We endorsed him. I voted for him. I supported him publicly and privately. I hope there are changes. I think he’s already laid in huge problems for the country. [Another Obama boot licker opens his eyes and stares into the ugly face of reality, Obama has been an unmitigated virtually unprecedented disaster for this country…ed]

ONE YEAR GONE: George W. Bush…Idiot.

One year ago today President Bush left the White House. It’s been said before, but I think on this anniversary it bears repeating. George W. Bush is an idiot. That’s right. He’s a dolt. A moron. A cowboy. An anti-intellectual. A dummy. I don’t use these words lightly and I firmly stand behind them. Of course, I’m not using the traditional definition of these adjectives. I’m using the current, leftist lexicon in describing the man. The left loves to rename things. They call acts of terrorism “man caused disasters.” The call a bill that takes away secret ballots for workers the “employee free choice act”. Expensive health care is renamed “affordable” and when they flush $800 billion of taxpayer money down the toilet they call it an economic “stimulus.” [Fabulous satirical piece…ed]

Palin, Bachmann hitting the trail together

Two Republican Party superstars — Michele Bachmann and Sarah Palin — will be stumping in Minnesota in April. The former Alaska governor will make a campaign appearance on April 7 with the Sixth District congresswoman who’s running for a third term, Bachmann announced Tuesday. Announcing Palin’s scheduled appearance, Bachmann is quoted as saying: “There is absolutely no one more in tune with the hearts and minds of everyday Americans than Governor Palin, and I’m excited to welcome her back to our beautiful state this spring.” [This very easy on the eyes dynamic duo will predictably get trashed by the lame ass left wing media but that’s OK because the American people love Palin and will love Bachmann once they discover what she is all about…ed]

Stimulating Fraud

With double-digit unemployment in a jobless recovery, half-a-million stimulus dollars have saved a ClimateGate scientist whose work could lead to economic disaster. To save this job, we’d lose millions of others. As we’ve gone from jobs saved or created to jobs funded in ZIP codes and congressional districts that don’t exist except in galaxies far, far away, many interesting nuggets have been mined from the government’s recovery.gov, which tracks the administration’s lack of progress. It’s one thing to fail to create real jobs. It is quite another to fund the jobs of people who would put millions of Americans out of work. This is what the administration has done by awarding $541,184 in economic stimulus funds to Penn State University to save, recovery.gov says, 1.62 jobs so that professor Michael Mann can continue his tree-ring circus fraudulently advancing the myth of man-made global warming. [I believe that should be “Mann”-made global warming. This fraudster and the people responsible for funding this guy’s climate hoax should be sitting in prison for the scam they have perpetrated on this country…ed]

The Global Warming Religion

Manmade global warming, for many, is an Earth-worshipping religion. The essential feature of any religion is that its pronouncements are to be accepted on the basis of faith as opposed to hard evidence. Questioning those pronouncements makes one a sinner. No one denies that the Earth’s temperature changes. Millions of years ago, much of our planet was covered by ice, at some places up to a mile thick, a period some scientists call “Snowball Earth.” Today, the Earth is not covered by a mile of ice; a safe conclusion is that there must have been a bit of global warming. I don’t know the cause of that warming, but I’d wager everything I own that it was not caused by coal-fired electric generation plants, incandescent light bulbs and SUVs tooling up and down the highways. [So if global warming is a religion it’s high time to have some serious separation of church and state…ed]

Frightened Haitians jolted from sleep by powerful aftershock

A powerful aftershock early today sent an already unnerved population rushing into Haiti’s streets in panic. The U.S. Geological Survey website said the earthquake had a magnitude of 6.1 and was centered 36 miles west-southwest of Port-au-Prince, the capital. The original quake on Jan. 12 was magnitude 7. Haitian radio reported that a number of already damaged buildings collapsed in Wednesday’s aftershock. [Damn man made global warming caused earthquakes…ed]

Obama’s White-Out

America’s increasing racial diversity made it possible for Barack Obama to comfortably win the presidency last year while capturing only 43 percent of the white vote, according to exit polls. And if the minority share of the vote continues to grow roughly as fast through 2012 as it has since 1992, Obama could win re-election with even less support from whites. But even so, the depth — and breadth — of the decline in his support among whites ought to be giving Democrats heartburn. That’s especially so because a falloff in minority participation during the midterm election makes it likely whites will likely cast a slightly larger share of the vote in November than the 74 percent they did in 2008. [Perhaps this is why Obama says Haitians here illegally can now stay indefinitely? Or why the Red cross is trying to bring tens of thousands of Haitians into our country for permanent settlement? Never let a crisis go to waste eh?…ed]

Haitians Hope for Work in U.S.

Haitians are so eager for information about a federal designation that will let illegal immigrants work temporarily in the U.S., they bombarded a Catholic church here even though the program doesn’t start until Thursday. More than 1,000 Haitians lined up this week outside the Notre Dame d’Haiti Catholic Church in Miami’s Little Haiti neighborhood to ask questions about how to apply for temporary protected status. Some were told to come back the following day. Others have showed up at immigration law offices and community centers elsewhere in Florida as well as New York and New Jersey. [Jobs? What jobs? Since Obama came along we’ve LOST 4 million jobs. We have true unemployment of AMERICANS sitting north of 17%! Perhaps they can go home and rebuild their nation with the hundreds of millions of our tax dollars that will be sent there?…ed]

Quote of the day.

Here’s my assessment of not just the vote in Massachusetts, but the mood around the country: the same thing that swept Scott Brown into office swept me into office. People are angry and they are frustrated. Not just because of what’s happened in the last year or two years, but what’s happened over the last eight years.

-Barack Obama

[The Bush Derangement Syndrome continues as this disaster of a president claims that Republican Scott Brown won election in Massachusetts yesterday because voters are still stark raving mad at George W. Bush. What an idiot…ed]
