Snark Alert!

Don Surber observes that more that half of all Americans see “Dear Leader”  in a very interesting light:

53% of the country did not see him as a post turtle who wonders not only how he got there but how he ever is going to get down

Of course Surber was not original in this description.  It’s been around a while. 

That about sums it up for me.  Of course I have some choice opinions (mostly unprintable) about any asshat of a President that would spend his Memorial Day kissing up to Highland Park Liberals instead of honoring our war dead.  But “Dear Leader” doesn’t give a damn about America, only about his own narcissitic self.

Applause For Google

Goodness knows, I have done enough Google bashing over the life of this blog.  Their conspicious ignoring of Holidays which celebrate Americanism has been grating. 

Today’s Google.com home page did it right, in my opinion


Simple., understated, eloquent.  Like the holiday it commemorates and like the men it honors.  Good job, Google.

From Shannon Coffin at the Corner

John Finn, who was the oldest surviving recipient of the Medal of Honor — he received his citation for his actions on December 7, 1941 — passed away yesterday. He was always humble of the honor, claiming, “What I did I was being paid for.” Well, that’s true of all of our heroes in uniform. It doesn’t make them any less heroic.

Jim Geraghty has some words for “Dear Leader”:

President Barack Obama, at an exclusive fundraiser last night in San Francisco for Senator Barbara Boxer: ‘Let’s face it this has been the toughest year and a half since any year and a half since the 1930s.’ This is the most revealing comment Obama has made publicly in a long while. It shows his self-absorption and utter lack of a sense of history. . . . Obama’s whining is puerile. One does hope it’s been the toughest year and a half he’s ever had. He is the president, and it’s a job that requires a bit of work. But to treat the previous presidents with so little respect is unbecoming.

The WaPo tells us:

Data released this week by the nonpartisan Center for Responsive Politics show that political contributions from 10 major business sectors are down about 5 percent from this point in the 2008 cycle. That contrasts with the last midterm election, when contributions were up 6 percent.

Why should business support politicians who are quick to throw them under the bus?  I am especially glad to see the liberals, who got the most money, being hurt by their own policies.

Oh Good Grief

“It Depends Upon What The Meaning of ‘Job Offer’ Is”

Prof. Jacobson at Legal Insurrection tears into the latest Obamnoid spin on the whole job offer to Sestak mess.

And remembering which story to tell is all the more difficult here because of the possible criminal nature of the job offer. Politically, a huge mea culpa combined with a resignation might be enough. Legally, public contrition would be dangerous.

We appear to be heading towards a defense of “it depends upon what the meaning of ‘job offer’ is.”

When someone tells you that “no evidence exists” that he did something, it’s a sure sign that he did it.
