Obama Cult Crashes in Blaze of Creepiness and Confusion


Cross-posted from American Power. ********** Mark Morford posted a simply pathetic essay this morning at the San Francisco Chronicle. How bad? Think of Frank Rich after a month-long drug-induced binge of Palin Derangement Syndrome, capped off with a smokin’ Texas-Sized Tequila Tea-Party Chaser. Morford’s piece is all-knowingly titled, “Letter to a Whiny Young Democrat.” No [...]

Insane: New York Times Sells False Meme of ‘Reasonable’ Stewart-Colbert Rally


Cross-posted from American Power. Folks at the fish wrap of record really do need to get out more. See, “At Rally, Thousands — Billions? — Respond” (at Memeorandum).

Daniel Ellsberg Works to Give Radical Imprimatur to Latest WikiLeaks Disclosures


I’ve been following the latest WikiLeaks document dump, but haven’t had a chance to comment.

Seriously? Brown Leads Whitman 49%-44% in New Poll


Cross-posted from American Power. ********** Last I heard Jerry Brown was running a shoestring campaign, but he’s come up with the cash for a major ad buy with this clip, “Serious.” And that’s exactly what I’m thinking. Seriously? That’s all he’s got? A pledge for no new taxes without voter approval, just like the current [...]
