A fake Tea Party exposed, in Michigan. They tried to pull that stunt in Nevada, too. They’re obviously running scared, and will do anything. But we’re supposed to believe that ACORN was non-partisan and on the up and up.
“You have me“:
A Labor Day schedule released by the staff of U.S. Sen. Russ Feingold (D-Wis.) indicates that while Feingold will be in Milwaukee for a Laborfest pre-parade on Monday morning, he will not be in town when Obama is expected to arrive.
…”I will stand with the president of the United States anywhere, any time, no hesitation. I’m proud of what this president has tried to do,” Feingold told the Journal Sentinel in an interview last month prior to Obama’s visit.
He forgot to add the part about “…as long as his approval isn’t dropping into the sub-basement.”
Yes, I think it is going to be different than 1994. Obama is going to make it much worse.
I think that Warren Buffett was very foolish to outsource his philanthropy to Gates.
And yes, as long as you’re asking, I do in fact think that I’d be spending the money a lot smarter, and doing a lot more good with it, than the Bill and Melinda Foundation.
Rattner rats out Obama:
– Rattner describes presidential political adviser David Axelrod coming to car meetings armed with poll data to support the takeover and Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel identify Congressmen in whose districts large Chrysler facilities were located.
– “[Obama’s economic team] veered dangerously close to having the government take control of the two most troubled banks, Bank of America and Citigroup.”
Rats will be rats.
Jason James Lee died. Today’s really inconvenient truth. There’s a lot more evidence that he was influenced by Gore than that McVeigh was influenced by Rush Limbaugh, or talk radio in general (which is to say, there was none for the latter). But don’t expect the press to spoil the narrative.
Deval Patrick thinks that it’s just a darn shame that we live in a free country. Guess he’s just revealing his inner Tom Friedman.
“Zombie” has been running a frightening series on the state of our educational system all week. Here’s today’s installment, but there are links to the previous ones.
International co-operation in space was very difficult and in many ways inefficient, the second man to walk on the moon said.
“But I think if we can take the English-speaking people … we can have American science, technology and bring together the UK, Australia, New Zealand, India and South Africa … and have a togetherness organisation,” he told AAP in Sydney on Thursday.
For some reason, I don’t think that the White House will be as happy about this as it was with some of his previous statements. It doesn’t sound like he’s quite on the same page as Charlie and the Muslim outreach.
Gotta love Buzz.
Some wisdom for students, from Walter Russell Mead, on how to survive the coming popping of the academic bubble.
Beck is attacking the enemy at the foundations of their power, their claim to race as a permanent trump card, their claim to the Civil Rights movement as a permanent model to constantly be transforming a perpetually unjust society.
He is nuking out the foundations of the opposition’s moral preeminence, the very thing I proposed in this post.
Actually, it’s more like the pretense of their moral preeminence.
