War For Oil Crowd Returns

I thought they had gone away now that gas is around $3 a gallon. But I was wrong. The Ring-of-Fire Air America crowd has been festering over this for years.  They never got over the fact that Bush consulted experts in the energy-related industries when trying to develop an energy policy instead of environmentalists.

Countdown Button Is Pushed For Israel’s Demise

That’s what Iran’s President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad says. Let’s see if the mainstream media can pull itself away from naming a NYC street after a guy who ‘hates white people’ long enough to tell you about another madman who hates Jews.

“With God’s help, the countdown button for the destruction of the Zionist regime has been pushed by the hands of the children of Lebanon and Palestine,” Ahmadinejad said in a speech.

We now see the results that ‘Dismay’ gets when it comes to Iran.  That’s almost as powerful a weapon as being ‘really really upset’ about it.  Then there’s ‘extremely concerned.’  The Useless Nations’ Kofi Annan, the statesman, peacemaker, and, Godfather to corrupt regimes everywhere.  Nearly two years later and the problem has only gotten worse and the UN has demonstrated its usual incompetence.

Hillary Clinton, What Makeover?

It only makes sense that Sen. Clinton has to have a ‘makeover‘ to show her (mid-western) roots. I hearken back to her first Senate race in New York when she found out she was Jewish, and a New York Yankees fan. Chameleons don’t do makeovers.

[T]the Clinton campaign has embarked on an ambitious effort to present the candidate the way they want her to be seen: as a pragmatic Midwesterner with a compelling life story


The challenge is more than just getting voters to connect to Clinton: She has extremely high negative ratings to try to counteract.

It’s what happens when you have a candidate that supplants polls for principles.
