A note to the CertifiTruthers:

Dear CertifiTruthers,

I have argued with you, especially on FR, on numerous occasions, but I don't really want to argue with you about whether the COLB is real or fake or what Barack's granny said or any of that other garbage right now. I'm right, you're wrong, that's all there is to it.

What's really got me ticked off is that, every time you encounter someone who doesn't drink the CerifiTruther Kool-Aid, you start going on about how that person "doesn't care about the Constitution". One wonders whether you might be so willing to throw out such a serious charge to someone who has lost limbs defending that document, but while such fantasies would indeed be ironic, they don't apply in my case.

However, there is a reality that is just as ironic, and you probably haven't even stopped to realize it. That reality is that it is not us who are trashing the constitution, it is you. Yes, yes, in the midst your faux rage over a pretended controversy, you are trying your best to keep from office the duly elected president of the United States!

In conclusion, the Constitution might be in better shape if you guys would quit using it as a shield every time someone rips into your conspiracies.

Thank you,

Columnist: Obama is a fraud

From Yes! Weekly:

I detest disclaimers, but for those of you who have never read one of my columns or watched my TV show, be advised: I am not a Republican or a Democrat. I am an Independent, and I attack candidates of both parties with equal zeal. And that brings me to the young hypocrite, Sen. Barack Obama.

Obama has promoted his presidential campaign as being inclusive of all people. Sort of a "No Voter Left Behind" approach. He says all of the right things, and makes all of the right promises. But underneath the touchy-feely rhetoric is a man who has risen to power on a fast track provided him by a notorious political machine, and he has stepped on anyone who got in his path along the way.

Recently, Obama stood by and allowed the DNC to steal half of Hillary's votes in Michigan and Florida. Then he endorsed a plan that awarded him 100 percent of the unaffiliated votes in Michigan. Those two actions gave Obama the nomination....

In that race (the 2004 US Senate primary), Democrat frontrunner Blair Hall had the nomination in the bag when, by some coincidence, a few weeks prior to the election the records of Hull's divorce were unsealed, revealing charges that his ex-wife made regarding physical abuse. Hull's numbers plummeted and Obama sneaked into the Democratic nomination.

Barack was slated to face GOP millionaire Jack Ryan in the general election. But Ryan was forced to drop out of the race when a judge suddenly decided to unseal his divorce records, which revealed charges from his ex that he had tried to make her perform sex acts in public.

The GOP couldn't come up with a viable replacement that late in the game (they recruited Alan Keyes) and Obama won the election in a landslide, appearing to be Mr. Clean.

The question is, how did a young lawyer in Chicago know to challenge petitions in his first campaign? And how was he able to have those petitions thrown out on technicalities so that his opponents would have no opportunity to react? How is it that divorce records of his opponents were suddenly and conveniently unsealed just in time for him to win a US Senate seat which he had no chance of winning? Probably because the Daley machine was behind Obama and, with the help of Majority Leader Jones, was able to fast-track Barack for stardom. Daley is the Mayor of Chicago and son of Richard Daley, the late kingmaker who allegedly helped the Kennedys steal Illinois from Nixon in the 1960 election.

So there you have it. A machine politician from Chicago. Shocking, isn't it?

Hanging Gardens destroyed? Blame Bush!

Many of us on the right have joked about how the Far Left blames Pres. Bush for just about everything. From crime to hurricanes, the Chimperor always has his paws all over it. Now it's just getting extreme (as if it weren't already), as you can see from the very first response in this Democratic Underground thread:

1. Well I do know that the Hanging Gardens of Babylon--one of the 7th wonders of the world--
was there before we got IT is gone.

Here is an album I found with pre-war Baghdad. It was quite beautiful.

When I first saw this, I thought it was a joke. After all, no one could possibly be this stupid, that they'd belive that a landmark that's been gone for almost 2 millinia was destroyed by the Iraq War? Unfortunately, the poster's fellow DUmmies corrected her, and she didn't say that.

3. Actually
The Hanging Gardens of Babylon were destroyed by an earthquake in the first century. I don't believe we had anything to do with it.

Of course "we" didn't, but what's Bush's alibi?

18. Actually I had read a news report that said that a couple of years ago
But I misinterpreted it--it was the SITE that was the Hanging Gardens of Babylon was destroyed.
Of course, there are ALWAYS those that enjoy making fun of others rather than educating. Congratulations.
I'm sure it makes you feel better.

Ah, yes. "I 'misread' the report"! Nice try, but next time you want to lie to cover your stupidity, please just claim you were joking. After all, that's all liberalism is- a joke.

Perhaps the single Dumbest post in the history of the Internet

From you-know-where:

Should the European Union get a vote?
Next year's elections - should the European Union, economically and politically tightly bound to the US, have a three percent vote on the outcome? Or be treated as a 51st state?

500 million people in Europe are affected each and every day by the voting-scam called Presidential Elections. Had we had a 3% vote, Kerry, and Gore too, would have won. So is it time, or do you think voting for an American President should be the sole right of Americans?

(and you can have a vote for the European Parliament as well!!!)

So it isn't enough that we give them who knows how much money and have defended them from enemies past and present, now we have to surrender our sovereinty because the DUmmies know that their stupid policies don't fly with most Americans?

Gore rips out the hearts of his worshippers

From Daily Kos:

Dear AFG Steering Committee Members:

We have received a communication from a member of Al Gore’s staff discouraging our efforts to put Al Gore’s name on any primary ballots. This includes California, New York, Massachusetts, and the write-in effort in New Hampshire, as well as any other states that are working to get him on the ballot. Accordingly, effective immediately, we are recommending that all groups cease their signature collection and related fund-raising activities.

Of course, I've been yelling this up and down the internet (okay, at FR and CU) for months. Gore is making too much money off of the global warming hoax and he knows that he'll actually have to defend himself if he got in.

Chimpeachment is coming after Christmas!

Oh wait, it's only a play, so unfortunately, we don't get to see Dennis Kucinich, in his dual role as House Manager for both impeachments, stumble bumble and fumble trying to come up with an actual crime:

If you think the impeachment circus is finished, you ain’t seen nothing yet. Screenwriter Richard Lasser and constitutional lawyer Bruce Fein have written an impeachment play that will debut in Washington, D.C. at George Washington U. when Congress returns from Christmas vacation. They’ve been meeting with moonbat lawmakers and contacting celebrities to cast and perfect the January 2 production. Dennis Kucinich is the casting director.

From the play's blog:

When Justice John Roberts calls the Senate to order in the impeachment trial of George W. Bush, he unleashes a battle of titans. With everything on the line, the most powerful legal minds in the country lock horns over whether the President should be removed from office for “high crimes and misdemeanors.” As the apparently incontrovertible evidence of Bush’s guilt piles up from witness after impassioned witness, you’d be a fool to bet on W. But in the second act, the President himself testifies and pulls out all the stops, delivering a speech reminiscent of Jack Nicholson’s “You can’t handle the truth” monologue in A FEW GOOD MEN. He correctly indicts a complicit Congress, a silent press and an apathetic public of being just as guilty as he is. In the end, as the audience files out of the theater, it’s up to each individual to decide where the truth lies.

Wait. "Justice John Roberts"???!!! Wouldn't *'s appointments all be removed since he stole the election?

NBC's Green Fraud (Goldberg)

Earlier in the week, I ranted about NBC and it's idiotic "Green is Universal" nonsense. Now, Jonah Goldberg has come out with a column critical of NBC:

'WE have turned out the lights in the studio," NBC's Bob Costas told viewers of Sunday's Dallas Cowboys-Philadelphia Eagles game, "to kick off a week that will include more than 150 hours of programming designed to raise awareness about environmental issues." Discerning viewers with eyes keen enough to pierce the sanctimonious glare of Costas' candlelit silhouette may have noticed that the stadium's klieg lights still shone brightly.
On a typical game day, a large football stadium burns about 65,000 kilowatt hours of electricity and 35,000 cubic feet of natural gas. The cars driving to the game spew about 200 metric tons of CO2 (and that assumes nobody's driving SUVs or RVs, which is like assuming tailgaters are eating only sushi). There's also the electricity used to broadcast the game and to watch it. But thank goodness Costas turned off the studio lights for a minute or two.

NBC's "Green Week" continued apace: Morbidly obese contestants on "The Biggest Loser" lugged piles of recyclable cans up ramps and into enormous collection bins. Of course, the cans were delivered to the stunt by diesel truck. So a lot of energy - and sweat! - that could have been used toward fermenting homebrew tofu (or whatever energy is supposed to be used for) was wasted on viewer schadenfreude.

The winners of the challenge each received a hybrid SUV. Alas, one of the winners didn't own a car to begin with, so the net result was one more car on the road and a little more CO2 in the air.

On "Days of Our Lives," a fictional couple had a fictionally "green" wedding. And the cast of the "Today" show burned massive amounts of jet fuel sending its hosts to the corners of the globe - leaving a "carbon footprint" larger than those left near the recycle bin on "The Biggest Loser."
