Obama administration climate czar Carol Browner on Wednesday rejected claims that e-mails stolen from a British university show climate scientists trumped up global warming numbers, saying she considers the science settled.
This proves that modern environmentalism is a religion, rather than debatable science, to global-warming believers. How do these sycophants like Browner even get up in the morning, knowing that all they believe in and all that gives their lives meaning has turned out to be a scam perpetrated on them by a boob like Al Gore? I would hate to be an environmentalist this morning and have to look in the mirror and find a reason to go out and fight climate change that I now know to be imaginary, again today.
In Copenhagen later this month, I would love to be a fly on the wall when these guys get together to argue over an issue that was proven to have been faked. How does Obama even show up for this global-warming summit without looking like an idiot?

Maurice Clemmons, the 37-year-old Tacoma man being sought for questioning in the killing this morning of four Lakewood police officers, has a long criminal record punctuated by violence, erratic behavior and concerns about his mental health.
Nine years ago, then-Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee granted clemency to Clemmons, commuting his lengthy prison sentence over the protests of prosecutors.
"This is the day I've been dreading for a long time," Larry Jegley, prosecuting attorney for Arkansas' Pulaski County said tonight when informed that Clemmons was being sought for questioning in connection with the killings.
Clemmons' criminal history includes at least five felony convictions in Arkansas and at least eight felony charges in Washington. The record also stands out for the number of times he has been released from custody despite questions about the danger he posed.
Huckabee, who ran for the Republican presidential nomination last year, issued a statement tonight calling the slaying of the police officers "a horrible and tragic event."
If Clemmons is found responsible, "it will be the result of a series of failures in the criminal justice system in both Arkansas and Washington State," Huckabee said.
You know Obama will choose just the right moment in the campaign to link these police murders with Huck's granting Maurice Clemmons clemency years before.
Huck's career baloon is in flames right about now while, Romney's, Pawlenty's, and Palin's are rising.

I find not one single redeeming quality in Obama. His inexperience, self-adoration, and delusions of grandeur are startling if not scary to find in a President. I hope we can put the brakes on this guy in 2010....if not, heaven help us!

Tiger Woods was injured early Friday when he lost control of his SUV outside his Florida mansion, and a local police chief said Woods' wife used a golf club to smash out the back window to help get him out.
The world's No. 1 golfer was treated and released from a hospital in good condition, his spokesman said. The Florida Highway Patrol said Woods' vehicle hit a fire hydrant and a tree in his neighbor's yard after he pulled out of his driveway at 2:25 a.m.
Windermere police chief Daniel Saylor told The Associated Press that officers found the 33-year-old PGA star laying in the street with his wife, Elin, hovering over him.
She told officers she was in the house when she heard the accident and "came out and broke the back window with a golf club," he said. "She supposedly got him out and laid him on the ground. He was in and out of consciousness when my guys got there."
I know it probably didn't go down this way but upon first glance you have to ask yourself, why Elin ran to Tiger's aid with a golf club in her hand? It would appear more likely that she was chasing him with the golf club and he crashed the SUV fleeing her. Then when he crawled half conscious out of the car, she whacked him once in the mouth with his own driver.....ouch, the irony!
Sunday Update: It would appear that I was mostly correct. Elin was mad about the rumor of Tiger's affairs and scratched his face in a fight. He wisely fled the scene in great haste with Elin apparently blasting the rear glass with his own golf club as he drove away. This would explain the reckless handling of his car as he egressed the property.

Washington (CNN) -- Three U.S. Navy SEALs face criminal charges after the alleged mastermind of one of the most notorious crimes against Americans in Iraq accused them of punching him after his capture, the military said Wednesday.
Ahmed Hashim Abed -- thought to be behind the slayings and mutilation of four U.S. contractors in Falluja in 2004 and captured in summer -- made the accusations against the three servicemen, said Lt. Col. Holly Silkman, a spokeswoman for U.S. Central Command.
This guy is thought to have been responsible for the Falluja massacre and desecration of American bodies, and we're taking seriously his idiotic claim of "police brutality"? Clearly he gets cable in his cave because he knows how to game our upside-down criminal justice system which views criminals as heroes and law enforcement and military personnel as potential criminals. Why would anyone join the military when you are viewed by your government as bad and doing your job may land you in jail?
Like my wife said, if the Navy SEALs have to come find you, you deserve to get punched in the mouth by them.

If the idea was to escape from jail, then you're doing it wrong....
CLIFTON, Tenn. -- The state Department of Correction said two inmates escaped a minimum security prison in southwest middle Tennessee on Nov. 7 to steal cigarettes before returning, WSMV-TV in Nashville reported.
Adam Garland and Michael Queener are accused of escaping through a window in their cell at the Turney Center Annex and crawling under a fence.
While out, the men stole cigarettes and tobacco products from a convenience store before returning to the prison by going back through the window that they had escaped from, officials at the corrections department said.
If having years potentially added to your relatively short sentences in a minimum-security jail is worth a pack of smokes, perhaps you should take up a different hobby than cigarettes.
This is a Bolivian police sketch artist's rendering based on a description given by a witness to a crime. Amazingly, the suspect was picked up a few days after this picture was circulated. The story is here but, it doesn't say whether the collar was because of the picture or a just a blind, dumb coincidence. The perp couldn't have been that hard to find regardless....I mean how many dudes are walking around without ears?
During the closing act, the openly gay singer simulated sex on stage with a back-up dancer and kissed a male musician on the mouth.
Lambert told US network CNN that the kiss was "in the moment".
ABC said the number of complaints was "moderate". The show's producers have declined to comment.
Lambert, who performed his debut single For Your Entertainment, said that if people had been upset by his performance that it is a "form of discrimination and it's too bad".
It's a little soon in Lambert's "career" to be resorting to hyper-sexual performances and accusing critics of discrimination. If he has any talent, which he might, it gets washed away with the in-your-face homosexuality of the performances. Say what you want about the sexual hypocrisy of Americans but, TV audiences are just not ready for the mainstreaming of prime-time, gay smooching and simulated oral sex. When you're already, in your first major performance, resorting to shock-value to get people to notice you, and then cry discrimination when people don't like it, I doubt you'll be very long-lived in the music industry....thankfully for the rest of us.

Is it just that they know their music is shoddy and second-rate so they resort to gross hypersexualization to get the cretins in the crowd fired up? This is prime-time TV. Kids are watching for heaven's sake! As if seeing artist after artist fondle themselves wasn't disgusting enough, we had to listen to flaming jackass Perez Hilton make vulgar "jokes" about anonymous sex in the men's room backstage....I almost wretched.
In case you didn't realize it, the only musicians that don't hold their genitals on national TV are the country music stars. They aren't yet contributing to the debasement of polite society. Except for the country acts, last night's show was entirely unwatchable.

Here's the girl's response later via Twitter, "But unlike Norah I didn't have my note cards with me. I was forced to think on the spot and answer a gotcha question. Her goal was clear, make this teenager look like an uneducated Palin supporting buffoon. To liberals, and the 5 people who watch MSNBC she succeeded. To conservatives, she was the only buffoon during that interview.
Norah O'Donnell ought to be ashamed of herself! Besides, just because Sarah Palin favored the Bush bailout, doesn't mean supporters can't still support her other, very conservative positions. Maybe the girl was voicing her displeasure at Palin's support of the Bush bailout. Disagreeing with a politician on one position doesn't make you hypocritical by remaining a supporter, as Norah suggested.
Heh, heh..."the 5 people who watch MSNBC".....brilliant!

From GMANews -- Suneeta Mukherjee, country representative of the United Nations Food Population Fund (UNFPA), said women in the Philippines are the most vulnerable to the effects of climate change in the country.“Climate change could reduce income from farming and fishing, possibly driving some women into sex work and thereby increase HIV infection,"
Then, without even thinking for a minute about what they just said, they present a contradictory argument that has nothing to do with weather.....
Congressman Artur Davis(D) Alabama, wants to be our next governor. This might explain why he's abandoning Nancy Pelosi, other congressional democrats and, his own Congressional Black Caucus to vote against any health-care bill that includes a public option and higher taxes on the wealthy, as well as voting against stupid climate-change legislation. Alabama is very conservative and he would stand no chance of getting elected if he supported disasters like the current health-care bill and cap-and-trade.
Earlier this week, Jesse Jackson harshly criticized Davis for his lone black vote against health-care saying, "You can’t vote against health-care and call yourself a black man.” and in doing so injected race for the first time into the debate over health-care reform. What Jesse Jackson doesn't understand is that his criticism is probably the biggest endorsement he could have given Davis. I mean if the skeevy Jesse Jackson dislikes you, you can't be all bad.
From SpiegelOnline -- Global warming appears to have stalled. Climatologists are puzzled as to why average global temperatures have stopped rising over the last 10 years. Some attribute the trend to lack of sunspots, while others explain it through ocean currents.
[sic]Not much is happening with global warming at the moment. The Earth's average temperatures have stopped climbing since the beginning of the millennium, and it even looks as though global warming could come to a standstill this year.
Climatologists are puzzled because they're just now waking up from the Koolaid-induced slumber to the reality that man-made global-warming doesn't exist at all. The pixie dust that shysters like Al Gore sprinkled over their profession is wearing off and slowly they're realizing what rubes they've been played for. Al Gore got rich partially because gullible climatologists for the past 10 years were easily bamboozled into believing and regurgitating his ridiculous, climate-change hoax, while ignoring the data that stared them in the face.
Let's hope the politicians wake up from their stupor regarding global warming too before they saddle us with Cap-and-Trade some time next year.
Here's the source of global warming or cause of global cooling....either way, it's entirely out of our hands.

From Fox Sports -- Uga VII, the white English bulldog mascot for the University of Georgia's football team for almost two seasons, died Thursday of heart-related causes, the dog's owner said.
The 56-pound dog, nicknamed "Loran's Best," was known as a laid-back mascot who seemed oblivious to crowd noise during boisterous games and would sit patiently as excited fans snapped photos of him. He often roamed the sidelines in a shirt with a 'G' stitched on it, sometimes resting on a bag of ice to cool off in his customized dog house.
The school said there would be a no mascot at Saturday's game in Athens against Southeastern Conference rival Kentucky, but that a wreath will be laid on his doghouse on the field's sidelines. Sonny Seiler, the dog's owner, said he likely wouldn't name a replacement until next year.
"We are all in a state of shock," Seiler said in a news release issued by the university. "We had no warning whatsoever."
The Uga lineage is the most storied in all of sports. It's no wonder he/they are routinely voted the No.1 mascot in college football. Pure-bred English bulldogs have all kinds of heart problems but still, this one was relatively young....bummer. :(
Today we have an unprecedented opportunity. We can actually help the economy and some of the general public, create jobs and have a good time at the same time.

That’s because flooding in its Atlanta facility and repairs to its Tennessee plant will result in Eggo shortages that could last through mid-2010, according to Bloomberg.com .
Kellogg’s spokeswoman Kris Charles informed Bloomberg that “we are working around the clock to restore Eggo store inventories to normal levels as quickly as possible.”
If Americans cannot enjoy delicious Eggo waffles as part of a nutritious breakfast[sniff, sniff] consisting of juice, toast and, sausage(both link and pattie), then the terrorists have already won. Mmmmmmm...sausage!

Whether you agree with him or not on gay marriage, I defy you to name for me one person, ever, under the age of 21, who has bothered to analyze the Pledge, managed to form a coherent thought on it's meaning and, then apply it to his life....I defy you!
Just so you know my position on gay marriage lest you make assumptions based on my other positions. When it comes to social or cultural questions, I defer to our constitutional guarantee to "pursue happiness". As long as your pursuit of happiness doesn't break the law or in any way impede my pursuit of it, then I couldn't care less how you define and pursue happiness. Look, nobody has made a bigger mockery of the institution of marriage than us heterosexuals. To save my life I can't come up with a way that gays could do any worse.
From Breitbart -- NBC’s “Law and Order” is in its 20th season. The economy is weak, so they have devolved to converting White House talking points into weekly shows. Last week, “Doped” was a farcical equivalent of “Damien Thorn meets Karen Silkwood.” Pharmaceutical companies and Doctors are worse than drug cartels. The killers in the previous week’s episode on such cartels were more sympathetic than the health professionals.
Insurance companies are also evil. Even though they stopped paying for a drug which the writers make clear should not exist, they still come in for criticism for discontinuing payments. In utter frustration, Jack McCoy blurts out, “This is why we need health care reform.”
People don't want to be lectured to by vapid, sanctimonious actors! Their jobs are to entertain us like court jesters, that is all.

To what Asian leaders has Obama not bowed? Did he learn from watching too many Charlie Chan movies that it's appropriate to always bow upon greeting any Asian? I thought it might be Obama's clumsy ignorance and inexperience that made him think he should bow to royalty but, Hu Jintao of China is not royal that I know of. And Obama never bowed to Queen Elizabeth but, that's because she's white rather than because she's not a head of state.
If he's got any sense at all, he's leaning in to beg President Jintao to not call in our debt or change the world currency away from the dollar, and to please, please keep buying our bonds so he can continue to fork over billions to private businesses who are run, poorly, by his political friends.
I'll bet there is not much remaining of what little respect the world did have for the US, what with our self-inflicted recession that dragged the whole world down with us, and now with Obama prostrating himself, and the US by extension, embarrassingly and unnecessarily before various world leaders. What an amateur!
How pumpkin pie is really made ...
There will be a price for granting blanket amnesty to 12-20million illegals like Obama intends to do. The price may be in the form of food-stamps, crime and gang-violence, free health-care, dumbed-down education, depressed wages, exploding welfare rolls, higher taxes, and the compromise of American sovereignty. But the price won't be paid by them, it'll be paid by honest, law-abiding, tax-paying, English-speaking Americans and their kids. Though "paid" isn't the right word for it..."extracted from us through the force of the federal government" is more accurate.
Whatever immigration-reform bill that is being quietly passed around the House will include a lot of things that should be unpalatable to loyal Americans. Contact your representatives and threaten them with electoral defeat if they dare vote in favor of anything that resembles amnesty.
"The baby Jesus"....priceless!

Well I can sure see how this story plays out. Drunken man leaves bar, and, naturally, approaches stuffed animal at storefront display. Sees cop watching him, goes back into bar for more confidence (I mean alcohol). Comes out later and propositions animal. After successful negotiations, he picks up animal (in more ways than 1 ) and heads to his ride. Arrested! and Busted! Go Directly to Jail you Perv! Do not pass Go Do Not Collect $200! Thankfully this didn't happen in Alabama. Here's the story:
A giraffe spent Friday morning at the Ashland Police Department, after an officer rescued it from the clutches of a drunken man who was trying to take it home.
The 4-foot stuffed giraffe, located outside the downtown children's store Bug A Boo, was a tempting target for Ashland resident Sean Patrick McDowell, 24, who is accused of having twice tried to steal the animal early Friday, police said.
"He was apparently pretty enamored with it and decided he was taking it home," said Sgt. Bob Smith with the Ashland Police Department.
McDowell was cited for theft after his second encounter with the giraffe, according to police.
At about 1 a.m., Officer Theron Hull observed McDowell pick up the giraffe and simulate making sexual advances on it, Smith said.
"Then he turns and sees Officer Hull and so he puts the giraffe down and walks away," he said.
Later, at about 2:30 a.m., just after the downtown bars had closed for the night, McDowell returned to the Bug A Boo storefront and again picked up the giraffe, Smith said. McDowell was walking with the giraffe toward a parking lot at Water and B streets when Hull apprehended him.
"It took a little more alcohol, but about an hour-and-a-half later, he decided to try it again," Smith said.
"Maybe he had struck out with all the women at the bar and this giraffe was looking pretty good, so he said, 'I'm going to take it back to my own place,'" he joked.
Police returned the giraffe to Bug A Boo Friday morning.
This is in Oregon for the inquiring mind! See the attraction below! How can you resist?
There's something not quite right here. I don't know what it is but, crikey! You'd think dad(or the man with whom mom is currently sleeping) would at least button his shirt for the pic. And how about a smile? After all, it's a birthday party. I get why the girl's not smiling, creepy dude with the shifty eyes has his arm around her[shudder].
Here's the embarrassing money shot of President Obama once again groveling, before a head of state of a foreign country. Last time it was the Saudi King. Over the weekend it was Japan's Emperor Akihito. I wonder how the administration handlers will spin this one? Obama was looking for his contact lens? Or, the Emperor is a bit of a low-talker so Obama had to bend over to hear him speak?
Over at Michelle Malkin's site, they've got several pictures of other heads-of-state greeting the Emperor for comparison purposes. Not one head of state bowed. Not because they're disrespectful of Japan's traditions but, because out of protocol, heads-of-state do not bow to one another. They simply shake hands like gentlemen, as equals. Occasionally you'll see a former President bow slightly to a royal head of state but, it's as a private citizen, not as a representative of the US.
Remember when Michelle Obama met with Queen Elizabeth for which a curtsy is appropriate? The media went berserk saying that it would be unbecoming and derogatory for a black woman to show deference to a white monarch with a curtsy. I guess a black President deeply bowing like a submissive servant to Arabs and Asians is different in the eyes of the media somehow...probably because they aren't white.

I'll always have a soft place in my heart for our motherland but, jeez Louise! They are completely nuts over there....
Every adult should be forced to use a 'carbon ration card' when they pay for petrol, airline tickets or household energy, MPs say.
The influential Environmental Audit Committee says a personal carbon trading scheme is the best and fairest way of cutting Britain's CO2 emissions without penalising the poor.
Under the scheme, everyone would be given an annual carbon allowance to use when buying oil, gas, electricity and flights.
Anyone who exceeds their entitlement would have to buy top-up credits from individuals who haven't used up their allowance. The amount paid would be driven by market forces and the deal done through a specialist company.
It's hard to laugh too much at Great Britain when we allowed our feckless media to install into our white house an inexperienced, radical, America-hating socialist who's not fit to register voters in south Chicago much less be President. The changes Obama plans for America are far more devastating and harmful to our country than ridiculous, carbon-credit cards would be to England. So I guess I don't have much room to point the finger of mockery but still, individual carbon-credit cards...heh, heh. Don't they know, global warming is imaginary?

This is what happens when you combine dumb, lazy teachers, who care more about students' self-esteem and sex education, with the systemic rot of political correctness, entrenched administrators, and the good-intentioned but idiotic NCLB....
Basic algebra involving fractions and decimals stumped a group of City University of New York freshmen - suggesting city schools aren't preparing them, a CUNY report shows.
"These results are shocking," said City College Prof. Stanley Ocken, who co-wrote the report on CUNY kids' skills. "They show that a disturbing proportion of New York City high school graduates lack basic skills."
During their first math class at one of CUNY's four-year colleges, 90% of 200 students tested couldn't solve a simple algebra problem, the report by the CUNY Council of Math Chairs found. Only a third could convert a fraction into a decimal.
When high-schools are graduating "students" who are this incapable of basic skills, what chance do they have of succeeding in college? And if their math skills are this deficient, how impaired are they likely to be in English or any other subject for that matter? Sure, they'll get admitted to college on a minority waiver, diversity program, or under-privilege scholarship program of some sort but, how long will they last? Maybe one semester at most? It is criminal to promote and graduate kids who cannot perform at basic levels but, actual learning is of no consequence to teachers' unions. Preserving dues-paying teachers' and administrators' jobs is the most important thing for the union and, in the classroom it's all about political correctness and self-esteem. Besides, to liberal teachers' unions, the dumber the population, the more likely they are to be loyal democrat voters.
Like my friend Pat over at Belchspeak says, "Reason #349 to home school".
Bonus: A virtual cookie to the first reader to solve the problem in the illustration above then, convert the answer to decimal form.
UPDATE: Regular reader Bobby T. earned a cookie with the correct answer, showing that for all the ridicule, we Alabamians are smarter than yankees from New York.

"You ever watch that TV series 'Mad Men?' " Clinton asked. "If I keep watching this program, will I ever find a happy person? Great television. Good drama. But a lot of really painful reminders in that show about how black people were supposed to run the elevators... were supposed to ask permission before they get on an elevator. The way women were treated is appalling, and only occasionally funny to me."
Only a liberal revisionist like Clinton can find error in an historically-accurate portrayal of America 50 years ago. Mad Men doesn't advocate the role of blacks as servants, nor of women as second-class citizens to men, that's just how it was.
That the fondler-in-chief and accused rapist would feign shock and horror at the mistreatment of women by anybody at all, is as hilarious as it is outrageous.
John Stossel has an excellent article over at TownHall via John Hawkins' site, Linkiest, in which he points out the absurdity of Nancy Pelosi's health-care bill that narrowly passed the House earlier this week.
It all comes down to the freedom of self-determination by the individual versus centrally-planned control by a committee of self-appointed, skeevy bureaucrats. Definitely a must read!
The loathsome Nancy Pelosi yesterday said that she wanted passage of the disastrous healthcare bill to be a Christmas present to the American people. That's like taking money from the cash-box under grandma's bed, buying an HD TV and, giving it to her for Christmas. No thanks! If they also pass cap-and-trade like they're promising, I'd rather get a bundle of switches and a lump of coal for Christmas. At least when my power gets turned off 'cause I can't pay the bill, I can burn it for warmth.
I think Nancy got her holidays mixed up. Passage of Obamacare should be an April Fool's present for all dumb Americans who favor it.

According to the Denver district attorney's office, Mark Mathias, 48, paid the mother money over a 10-month period. Investigators said that from June 18, 2008, through March 31, Mathias repeatedly sexually assaulted the girl.
The child told investigators that her mother would use a cellphone to contact different men, telling them that "fresh meat (was) available."
Detective Kenneth Klaus said in court documents that when the mother's cellphone records were reviewed, "an extensive contact list was revealed."
In addition to the sexual-assault charge, Mathias was charged with soliciting for child prostitution as well as sexual assault — pattern of child abuse.
Prosecutors said the mother was charged earlier with pimping and pandering of a child. Her bail has been set at $200,000.
Mathias is being held on $100,000 bail. He is scheduled to appear in Denver County court Wednesday to be advised of the charges.
I can't make this up! Two low life vile degenerates are in jail. May they rot there. I hope that the bail bondsman of the greater Denver band together and swear to let these 2 scums stay in jail. I hope some typical "lifers" get a hold of the pair and introduce them as "fresh Meat" to the cell block. Wonder how screwed up this little girl will be and how long before she can trust anybody again. Things like this are a daily reminder of why, we as parents, have to carefully watch what our kids do and who with. In this child's case, someone else should have been watching, Oh my bad, he was and was paying. On the bright side, if these disgusting scumbags are convicted, at least there are 2 less Democratic votes now!
If you thought Olympia Snowe was a bad RINO for voting for Chairman Zero's awful health-care debacle, take a gander at possibly the worst republican since Arlen Specter.....Lindsay Graham of South Carolina....
Earlier this year, House Democrats approved a 1,400-plus page Waxman-Markey cap-and-trade energy bill that was then promptly pronounced all but dead on arrival in the Senate. Now along comes the South Carolina GOPer to save the Democrats' second biggest priority, next to socializing doctors and patients.
Graham will trade a hollow promise from Democrats of more nuclear power and off-shore oil and gas development in return for his support of Waxman-Markey. He forgets that Democrats can promise anything like that now without fear because they know Environmental Protection Agency and the Sierra Club will keep it from ever actually being done.
Cap and trade will likely increase everybody's energy bill by a whopping 70%, plus seize a new tax from families for the Obama administration to invest in idiotically useless "green energy" boondoggles. Boondoggles like wind, solar and, ethanol-based energy that the private sector rightly deemed too risky and unreliable to in which to invest. But riskiness, inefficiency, and pointlessness don't matter to the government because it doesn't have to make a profit. The government and Lindsay Graham can waste as much of other peoples' money as it wants, on behalf of the wholly, imaginary menace of global warming.
Graham just got elected so he's hoping the people of SC will forget about this treachery but, when they are huddling in the dark and shivering in the cold because they can't afford to pay their power bills, maybe they'll rethink their vote the next time around.

Even the most strident opponents of the death penalty have to not mind this one much...
John Allen Muhammad is scheduled to be executed [sic]today for the Beltway-area sniper spree that left 10 innocent people dead in 2002.
The media will feel obligated to gloss over the radical Islamic beliefs that played a major role in his actions over those three weeks in Maryland and DC but, don't you forget it.
I'd like to see the look on his face when, after his execution, instead of Valhalla with 72 virgins frolicking around in white burqas, he wakes up to find himself in fiery hell.

If dumb hippies want to eat nothing but raw carrots and acorns like foraging animals, bathe in patchouli oil to save water and, smoke dope when they're not protesting the very system that lets them enjoy lives of decadent leisure, degeneracy, and bathlessness, fine but, don't force your kids to endure your stupid lifestyle. They can make that choice when they grow up and decide like you did, that life is too short to work all the time.
Here's the daughter of a hippie being force-fed a garden-burger...YUCK!! Judging by her expression, she'll be vomiting in a few minutes and begging to go to McDonald's for a real burger.
This is Sammy Sosa and his wife before and after his "skin rejuvenation" procedure. Sadly it's true that even within black populations, lighter skin color is preferable to darker skin color and darker colored individuals within that population suffer discrimination from the superior-minded lighter colored individuals. It was stated by Nigerian activist and musician Fela Kuti, that some blacks tend to internalize the racism that burdened their ancestors and it manifests itself as this "colonial mentality" in which the whiter your skin is, the higher class, and therefor the more desirable, you are.
As a white guy, I'm not sure I should even be commenting on this but, come on Sammy! You look like Michael Jackson. But I guess if you're willing to take steroids and cork your bat, what's the big deal about a little body bleaching?

Fort Hood shooter Hasan, was supposed to be a devout Muslim but, does swilling beer and buying extended lap dances from strippers fit into Islam?
Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan came into the Starz strip club not far from the base at least three times in the past month, the club's general manager, Matthew Jones, told FoxNews.com. Army investigators building their case against Hasan plan to interview Jones soon.
"The last time he was here, I remember checking his military ID at the door, and he paid his $15 cover and stayed for six or seven hours," Jones, 37, said.
Hasan's presence at the club paints a starkly different portrait of the alleged killer from that offered by his imam and family members, who have described him as a devout Muslim, and one who had difficulty finding a wife who would wear a head scarf and would pray five times a day.
So, this guy was not only a bad Muslim, but the FBI announced today that he had been trying to contact members of Al Qaeda. Now, I may be wrong but, a uniformed military officer, trying to contact the enemy with whom we are at war, is guilty of treason, no? He also attended the same Mosque as two of the 9/11 high-jackers.
If the FBI knew about this, did political correctness prevent them from notifying the Army? Would the Army, already eaten up with diversity awareness and political correctness, have done anything for fear of violating this traitor's civil rights? That is doubtful.
Hasan's defenders in the media this weekend whined that this was not Islam-based terrorism but, one individual who snapped, who happened to be Muslim. I might have accepted that argument until I learned that he had tried to contact members of our Islamic enemy. Let's see Matthews, Olberman, and Maddow make that argument now.

How miserably unpopular do you have to be in elementary school, that you don't have even one friend in whom you have enough trust to share a see-saw? This stupid contraption, a see-saw for one, actually received a patent. Here's the justification....
"A seesaw plank can be a dangerous object in the hands of a mischievous child who may abruptly pull down on one end when another child is passing by the opposite end, causing the opposite end to rise quickly and potentially striking the passing child."
"Because the seesaw operates on the principle of counterbalancing weights, injury can result if a rider suddenly falls or jumps off the seesaw while the opposing rider is high in the air, particularly if one rider is substantially heavier than the other. In this scenario, the opposing rider is sent crashing to the ground and the sudden impact may jar a child's joints or cause spine or tailbone injuries."
These are garden-variety, play-ground lessons that we all had to learn. Playground see-saws are one of the primary ways of sorting out at age 7, who of your playmates are trustworthy and who are dicks. As a teen, would you trust the kid who used to jump off the see-saw not to hit on your girlfriend when you're not around? Of course not because, you learned what kind of character he had way back in 2nd grade. Likewise, a successful see-saw ride establishes a bond of trust between two people.
Take-away life lesson: Kids who can be trusted on a see-saw at age 7, can be trusted with your girlfriend at 16.

GOUVERNEUR, NY - Congressman-elect Bill Owens was sworn in at noon today.
Owens indicated in a press release released shortly afterwards that he was now in favor of the the "Affordable Healthcare for America Act" bill in direct contrast to his earlier position during the election campaign.
According to Politico.com, Mr. Owens assured voters that he felt the public option had no place in the health care reform bill. Contrary to that position, Mr. Owens now indicates that he intends to vote in favor of the bill even though it now contains a public option.
Mr. Owens also indicated during his campaign that he was firmly opposed to cutting Medicare benefits, taxing health care benefits, and increased taxes on the middle class.
The House Health reform bill contains sections that cut Medicare benefits, tax existing health care benefits, and increases taxes on the middle class, yet Mr. Owens stated today that he will now vote in favor of those things contrary to what he had promised the voters of NY's 23rd Congressional District that he would vote against.
Of course he lied to you. Craven democrats will say literally anything to get elected and then do exactly as they please. He has to run for re-election in one year and he thinks the NY-23 voters will forget in that time that he's a dirty, rotten liar! Let's hope they're not that stupid.

From SwampPolitics -- At least one Democratic political strategist has gotten a blunt warning from the White House to never appear on Fox News Channel, an outlet that presidential aides have depicted as not so much a news-gathering operation as a political opponent bent on damaging the Obama administration.
Political consultants are a staple of cable television talk shows, analyzing current events based on their own experiences working on campaigns or in government.
One Democratic strategist said that shortly after an appearance on Fox he got a phone call from a White House official telling him not to be a guest on the show again. The call had an intimidating tone, he said.
The message was, "We better not see you on again,'' said the strategist, who spoke on condition of anonymity so as not to run afoul of the White House. An implicit suggestion, he said, was that "clients might stop using you if you continue.''
What a bunch of cry-baby ass-wipes this administration is! Every time they whine, complain, and now threaten and intimidate people about Fox News, it only makes Americans watch Fox that much more. Fox is the lone critic of the Obama administration, Nancy Pelosi, and Harry Reid. Of course they want to silence dissent. It'll make it far easier to pull the wool over the eyes of Americans as they rail-road us into universal health-care, cap-and-trade, higher taxes, etc., if our only source of information is the obedient, Obama-suck-ups in the main-stream-media.
If anything, this hard-balled, anti-American, Chicago-style tactic should back-fire as all journalists, pundits, and strategists should be shocked, appalled, and pissed that any, ANY administration would threaten them for covering the news. This sort of thug mentality Obama and Emanual brought from Chicago will only make Americans more resolute in their opposition to being rail-roaded by them.
Keep it up, Obama. See how far it gets you.
Apple announced today that it has developed a breast implant that can store and play music. The iTit will cost from $499 to $699, depending on cup and speaker size. This is considered a major social breakthrough, because women are always complaining about men staring at their breasts and not listening to them.
Nidal Malik Hasan concocted and executed his plan to slaughter American service personnel at Fort Hood yesterday. It has been reported that he yelled "Allah-Akbar" as he fired his weapons. This is nothing less than an act of terrorism in the name of Islam yet, Meredith Vieira couldn't help herself this morning on NBC's Today Show when she pointed out that he may have been the victim of mockery by other soldiers for being Muslim. Leave it to the politically-correct class to make a hero out of the murderer and victimizers out of the murdered. I'm sure the MSM meme in the coming days will be how Hasan was driven to this act by intolerant peers who profiled a peace-loving Muslim as the enemy because of his religious preference, and an uncaring Army organization with entrenched Islamophobia and bias against him. We'll be lectured about how it was the Army's fault for not protecting him from anti-Islamic hostility, even though he regularly and publicly extolled the virtues of the suicide-bomber, openly criticized our mid-east military strategy in Iraq and, offered praise for insurgents in Iraq who "stand up to the invaders".
This is a uniformed officer making war against his own country. How is that not punishable by death? I hope he survives his wounds long enough to be hung for his crimes against the US....very publicly hung. Then we can watch the media types weep for him....heh, heh.

From TheMorningCall -- A fatality involving a Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority rail worker has suspended three regional rail routes to Philadelphia this morning, further aggravating the transit workers' strike.
Officials said a transit worker was struck and killed by a train between 8:30 and 9 a.m. near the Melrose Park station.
The accident comes as the transit system enters the third day of a crippling strike, and a day after a strike-crowded regional train caught fire during the morning rush. SEPTA says neither incident is strike-related.
More than 5,000 bus, trolley and subway workers walked off the job 3 a.m. Tuesday.
Workers in labor unions think they deserve, and are entitled to, wages and lavish benefits far greater than what that labor market would otherwise bear if allowed to operate freely. This dramatically increases the retail price of that item, in this case transportation, for all commuters. How many times do I have to explain it? Labor markets are no different than any other market, in that they should be subject to the forces of supply and demand. Moreover, contrary to what the media tell you, jobs do not belong to the employee. Jobs belong to the company, which exchanges money with you, in a mutually agreeable contract, in return for performing that work. If you want to make more money, either find a different job or prove to your employer that you deserve more....but, not by striking. Work harder, learn new skills, and make yourself indispensable to him. The extortion with which unions intimidate companies encourages less work, no new skills learning, and laziness.
This is why unions are bad for workers, bad for consumers, and bad for America.

“If I give you a raise, it is going to save a portion of your job,” HHS spokesman Luis Rosero said.
What a lying moron! If you get a raise, it means that the job you occupy wasn't in jeopardy in the first place. I swear, this administration is just pulling numbers out of their asses that match whatever they want the numbers to be. And the dutiful media regurgitate them as if they are fact. Thankfully the AP did the math on it's own for a change, and exposed the administration lies for what they are....rotten lies!
WH press secretary and hapless oaf Robert Gibbs tries, tries and fails, to convince us that Obama didn't care about the election returns yesterday....
From Politico - Hours after urging reporters not to draw sweeping conclusions from Tuesday's gubernatorial elections in New Jersey and Virginia, White House press secretary Robert Gibbs told POLITICO President Barack Obama wasn't even keeping an eye on the results.
"He's not watching returns," Gibbs said.
Let me be the next in line to call "BS" on this one. The outcomes of last night, especially the two governor's races, rang loud and clear in moderate democrat circles. Fiscally conservative democrats(blue dogs) are looking at each other this morning and assessing who they are more afraid of, Obama, Reid and, Pelosi or their own constituents, especially if they are in otherwise red states.
Whether Gibbs admits it or not, Obama's cult-like powers of persuasion with the American people were spent a year ago when he won election. The lesson from last night is...if Obama is not on the ballot, he doesn't carry much weight, and for democrats in 2010, Obama will not be on any of the ballots.

From Politico - In what could be a nightmare scenario for Republican Party officials, conservative activists are gearing up to challenge leading GOP candidates in more than a dozen key House and Senate races in 2010.
Conservatives and tea party activists had already set their sights on some of the GOP’s top Senate recruits — a list that includes Gov. Charlie Crist in Florida, former Rep. Rob Simmons in Connecticut and Rep. Mark Kirk in Illinois, among others.
Activists predict a wave that could roll from California to Kentucky to New Hampshire and that could leave even some GOP incumbents — Utah Sen. Bob Bennett is one — facing unexpectedly fierce challenges from their right flank.
Over at Hotair, Michelle Malkin presents an article by Doctor Zero which sums up nicely the wave of conservative, tea-party sentiment which threatens entrenched republicans. Here's an excerpt....
Meanwhile, the Republicans keep running “moderates” who prove to be very useful to the Democrats… which keeps the growth of the State bubbling along at Bush levels. The radical nature of the current Administration makes the idea of “moderate” compromise laughable. What’s the moderate position on freedom-crushing trillion-dollar health care and environmentalist legislation? They’re okay, as long as the Democrats pinky-swear to keep the cost under $800 billion? That’s the kind of promise no politician could keep, even if it was made in earnest. A moderate Republican is someone who lives in a state of perpetual surprise as he ponders the monthly bills for nanny-state government. What’s the point of electing people who are guaranteed to spend the rest of their political careers complaining about how they’ve been played for fools?
Too much of the Republicans’ “Stupid Party” strategy is based on the mechanics of getting people with little elephants on their campaign signs elected. They view the election as the conclusion of a contest, when in fact it’s only the beginning. A successful Republican Party doesn’t have to be ideologically rigid, but it should insist on candidates who possess an intellectual foundation of conservative theory, and the ability to explain it at least as well as the thousands of people posting comments on conservative blogs.
On the chopping block?
From IndiaTimes -- SRINAGAR: It seems these are the worst of times to be a militant in Kashmir. First, a Lashkar-e-Taiba terrorist was axed to death by a teenage girl in Rajouri roughly a month ago. Now, a bear has mauled two Hizbul Mujahideen militants to death as they hid in its cave in Shopian, South Kashmir.
According to defence spokesman Lt Col J S Brar, the two commanders dared to colonise a bear's cave [sic] and paid for it with their lives. For, late on Sunday night, as the two slept, the bear came calling.
"It attacked the armed militants and killed them on the spot," Brar said.
Heh, heh....for getting eaten by a bear, somehow I doubt the great and powerful Allah rewards you with 72 virgins in the afterlife.
NOT a good place for sleepy terrorists to lie down for a nap.
Today is the first election day since the inexperienced man-child Obama ascended to the seat of power in which grown-ups normally sit. We have three contests today, the governor jobs in New Jersey and Virginia, and the New York-23rd congressional district. The Obama administration is already spinning the outcomes as meaningless and not a referendum on Obama's Marxist policies but, you and I know different. Every election with national implications is essentially a referendum on the sitting President whether he likes it or not. If conservatives win all three, it'll make other moderate democrats in red-leaning states think twice before siding with Obama on hot-button political issues.
So if you are not involved in one of those races, direct conservative thoughts toward our friends who are, and if you are in one of those states, vote early and vote often for the conservative candidate.

“He who spends time passing trivial legislation may find himself out of time to read health care bill,” said Flake.
What do you say to that dumb, Pelosi House?
WOW! If there was ever a history lesson that needed to be taught in schools, it's this one. Everything that Obama and the party of HopeyChange stand for contradict and undermine the liberty and freedoms that this country was founded upon. It's depressing really to see how far we've fallen.
