If the gay Democratic Hillary supporters over at Hillbuz understand that Isalm is at war with the west, how can our current administration be so obtuse?  This part is sort of the funniest/saddest, depending on your perspective:

We don’t care how much hatemail we get from Liberals over this, or how many times they write in to say how they all hope we get AIDS and die (their favorite curse upon gay men who refuse to toe the Liberal line), because people need to wake up to the fact that Muslims are not the Care Bears.

Gee, I thought it was only us conservatives that were homophobic.  It’s not enough to be gay – you have to be the “right kind of gay”, I suppose.  Just like Condolezza Rice was a “house nigger“.  And Colin Powell, although I suppose he has been redeemed of house nigger status after proving his Obama bona fides this last election cycle.  And let’s not even get started on what Michelle Malkin is in the eyes of the left – a “little brown person with conservative values”?  Preposterous – she is to be vilified in the most vulgar terms possible.  Of course, if you’re just a plain old white guy conservative, the left will just hope you die a painful death.  Sure is easy to see why Charles Johnson left the mean old conservative side of the blogosphere for the compassionate, rational left, eh?

From Little Green Footballs, that is.  I have had an active account there for about 3 years, but rarely commented.  Tonight I find myself blocked.  My offense?  I had the temerity to “down click” one of Charles Johnson’s disingenuous posts about Robert Stacy McCain.  What a hypocrit and mental lightweight – no dissent allowed in the LGF camp, lest poor Charles be upset.

Meanwhile – after accusing the right wing tea partiers of resulting in the death of a census worker by stirring up anti-government sentiment – I can’t seem to find any mention of the real violence being done by the G20 protestors.

UPDATE:

Oh no you didn’t!  You ain’t banning me – I is banning you! Best rant ever – and oh so true.  No, I’m not excerpting – just go read the whole damn thing.

But there is one in Biden!

Words to chill even the bravest heart:

There’s no “I” in “team,” but there is definitely one in “Biden.”

With President Obama off on vacation, his second in two weeks, unofficial Acting President Joe Biden has stepped into the vacuum, claiming credit Thursday for the successes of the administration’s $787 billion stimulus package and fielding questions on health care reform — something his boss hasn’t done in nearly two weeks.

So, our top elected leader is a coward.  Hiding from a press that has done everything it can to help him along – uncritically reporting and supporting his agenda.  Now that his popularity is plummeting on multiple fronts – he sends his gaffe-prone vice-President out on the road to “accept responsibility”.  Is that too strong a characterization?  Well, I don’t think so, or I wouldn’t have made it.  But I suppose you could say that it wanders into the realm of hyperbole – but only as long as you convince me that Bush would have gotten the same lenient treatment that Obama is currently getting.

As for Biden – you know what, Joe – I really don’t care if you accept responsibility for anything.  The only thought I give you at all is how horrible it will be if we ever have to remove the word “acting” from the phrase “Joe Biden is the acting President of the United States”.

Of course, there’s a reason Obama needs those vacations.

It was, of course, a favorite mantra of the anti-war left – “No Blood For Oil!”.  International ANSWER, code pink, Cindy Sheehan (she who has morphed from useful idiot to just plain old idiot – now that a Democrat is in the Whitehouse) – they were all there criticising the war in Afstan and Iraq, screaming about Halliburton, calling Bush a war criminal, whatever.  Today, somehow the anti-war causes are relegated to the back burner, and we have no more grim milestone watches in the mainstream media – not even any real ackowledgements that the deadliest month of the Aftan conflict for US troops occurred on Obama’s watch.  And Cindy Sheehan sits all alone outside Martha’s Vineyard, wondering what happened to the media that couldn’t get enough of her when she was hounding Bush.  Mysteriously, the media has now decided that it’s time for Cindy to just shut up and move on.

Now we know what trading blood for oil really looks like.  It looks like Gordon Brown and British Petroleum making a deal for the release of a mass murderer in exchange for sweetheart trade deals with Libya.

The British government decided it was “in the overwhelming interests of the United Kingdom” to make Abdelbaset Ali Mohmed al-Megrahi, the Lockerbie bomber, eligible for return to Libya, leaked ministerial letters reveal.

Gordon Brown’s government made the decision after discussions between Libya and BP over a multi-million-pound oil exploration deal had hit difficulties. These were resolved soon afterwards.

The letters were sent two years ago by Jack Straw, the justice secretary, to Kenny MacAskill, his counterpart in Scotland, who has been widely criticised for taking the formal decision to permit Megrahi’s release.

So, they’ve been working on this for at least 2 years.  One has to wonder whether al-Megrahi really was terminally ill – or whether it was , as has been suggested, all just a big rollicking hoax.

JUSTICE secretary Kenny MacAskill was last night under pressure to reveal more details of the medical evidence that led to the release of the Lockerbie bomber, after it emerged that only one doctor was willing to say Abdelbaset Ali Mohmed al-Megrahi had less than three months to live.

Labour and Conservative politicians have demanded the Scottish Government publish details of the doctor’s expertise and qualifications, amid suggestions he or she may not have been a prostate cancer expert.

The parties have also raised questions over whether the doctor was employed by the Libyan government or Megrahi’s legal team, which could have influenced the judgment.

Ok, so Obama packs a venue full of drooling sycophants to try and regain control of the health insurance care debate.  Unable to answer real questions about the program from real critics – the PotUS fills an audience with friendlies to be sure he looks good on tv. The entire goal of this little charade is to convince us that adding a government option to health care is good for the system, and that it in no way impacts the level of health care Americans currently receive.  Over and over again Obama stresses how a government run option will make things better, not worse.  He made promises he doesn’t know how or if he can keep – like saying that his health care plan wouldn’t add to the deficit.  Well, I guess not if you decide to tax the socks off of everyone in the US – but that seems to run afoul of his previous pledge not to tax the middle class, eh?  Of course, Obama doesn’t really care about breaking promises – he will say whatever is necessary to advance his agenda.

One wonders, however, how Obama – at a meeting designed to convince us that a government run option to health care would be just as viable as our current private system – could utter something like this (emphasis mine):

He also disputed the notion that adding a government-run insurance plan into a menu of options from which people could pick would drive private insurers out of business, in effect making the system single-payer by default.

As long as they have a good product and the government plan has to sustain itself through premiums and other non-tax revenue, private insurers should be able to compete with the government plan, Obama said.

“They do it all the time,” he said. “UPS and FedEx are doing just fine. … It’s the Post Office that’s always having problems.”

Got that?  The private shippers are doing just fine – it’s the government run postal service that’s always in trouble.  But government run health care will be different.  Trust me.  Or else.  Keep fighting, America – you don’t want what we have here in Canada. Notice how the wait times information was last updated March 31, 2009.  So, in Canada, we even get to have wait times to find out what our wait times are.
