Harry Reid’s “Smear Letter” Results

The sale of Harry Reid’s attack letter (signed by 41 senators, some presidential wannabes, all Democrats) on the free speech of a private citizen, Rush Limbaugh, breaks eBay’s record for a charitable donation sale. Previous to this the record was $800,000 for one of Jay Leno’s motocycles. This historic document, four pieces of paper, went to Betty Casey for $2,100,100 yesterday. Limbaugh’s press release here, including the philanthropic background of Betty Casey.

And for the most ridiculous item of the day (MRIOTD), Sen. Harry Reid’s pathetic attempt to take some credit for the eBay auction.

Have you noticed the virtual blackout on this letter and what exactly it represents in the mainstream media?

PDF of the infamous and historical letter, signed by Hillary Clinton, Barak Obama, Joe Biden, Chris Dodd, Harry Reid, Dick Durbin, Charles Schumer, and my own Bill Nelson among others.

Keith Oberman Comic Relief

It’s not that I don’t have a sense of humor, but this is the kind of humor I’d expect from a George Carlin routine, not a MSNBC cable news program. The topic of the last segment of tonight’s show was concerning the Ellen DeGeneres pet adoption debacle. His guest, Joel Mchale of “The Soup,” expressed frustration with the significance of the story said “who would want to watch an animal that can lick its own privates anyway?” To which Oberman says, “well we could always go to the White House for that. Ah, no I’m sorry.”

I’m not calling for him to lose his job over this. He is good right where he is, where people can see how the wacko left thinks and what they say. Oberman is the man. The comedy begins at 4:20 into the video.

Sen. Barack Obama Making Picks

Keeping to his apparent knack1 to be first to speak on a subject like working with ‘the other side of the aisle,’ Obama names some republicans he says he can work with. It also, with the media’s help, allows him to be the one driving the campaign. Making the rest respond to him.

Among the Republicans he would seek help from are Sens.Richard Lugar of Indiana, John Warner of Virginia and Tom Coburn of Oklahoma, Obama said.

His choices of republicans would not be mine, and take Arlen Specter (R-PA), please! But can you even begin to imagine what an Obama Cabinet would look like? Now there’s a scary thought.

Also at the same stump stop in affluent Key Biscayne, Florida, and qualifying for the most ridiculous item of the day, Obama said this . . .

Part of Washington’s problem is that President Bush has created a partisan atmosphere, he said.

Secretaries of Defense, Interior, State, Energy, Education. If he holds true to form, he should be naming these picks sometime next week. As much as I’d like to see him do that, it isn’t going to happen. If it does, he will be the one on defense, and it will be the beginning of the ending of his presidential aspirations for ’08 at the very least.

Moose Adds To Global Warming

Imagine that. You have to admire the talent and scientific acumen required to determine that aNow poor moose are being blamed for global warming. moose burp affects the earth’s climate. What a genius. He must be related to the guy who figured that if we all change our clocks we’ll have an effect on the global climate. Frankly, it’s intimidating knowing that there are such smart people walking the streets. Here it is under Global Warming Fears, Norway’s Moose Population in Trouble for Belching.

The poor old Scandinavian moose is now being blamed for climate change, with researchers in Norway claiming that a grown moose can produce 2,100 kilos of methane a year — equivalent to the CO2 output resulting from a 13,000 kilometer car journey. Now poor moose are being blamed for global warming.

Norway is concerned that its national animal, the moose, is harming the climate by emitting an estimated 2,100 kilos of carbon dioxide a year through its belching and farting.

Stupidest Question Ever

Especially for a man who wants to be President and change the health care system in the country. At a Democrat debate over the weekend, John Edwards took a question whether he liked the Cuban model of health care. His response . . .

ABC News’ Rick Klein reports, “When an Iowa resident asked former Senator John Edwards whether the US should follow the Cuban health care model, Edwards deflected the question, saying he didn’t know enough to answer it.” The Breck Girl said, “Well, I’m going to be honest with you, I don’t know a lot about Cuba’s health care system. Is it a government-run system?”

Is the Cuban governments health care system run by the government? Fidel Castro’s Cuba? Forget about how to spell potato(e). Wonder what his wife will say in defense of such a stupid statement?
