Thanksgiving celebrates the day that Pilgrims and Indians sat down to eat together before the gay secularist
Indians divided this country and tried to foist their atheism and
savage decadent culture on the God-fearing pilgrims.
by Mr J.Q. Public | On the heels of Powerline's concern about Obama's recent unseemly gaffes comes Jon Swift's withering summation of Obama's disastrous press conference. It seems that Mr Powerline---I do not believe that is his name, but I haven't time at present to look him up---may be right after all, despite the mockery to which his piece was subjected by my liberal co-blogger. Obama does require tutelage in speaking without going awry and should probably take W as his model, as Mr Powerline (again, apologies) suggests.

It must be difficult not being able to draw continuities between DARK
TIME and LIGHT TIME, such that when the sun unexpectedly goes down in
the evening it’s EATED BY THE SUN-EAT SERPENT, and when it startlingly
comes up in the morning it’s MIRACLE HOORAY LIGHT. And then ONO! IT’S
EATED BY THE EAT SERPENT, and then O HAI, IT’S MIRACLE HOORAY LIGHT,
and on and on throughout your whole gaping lessoff existence — a
‘lessoff’ being like a moron except not even one.
We can be thankful that for most of us, here in the most advanced
civilization the world has ever known, with unparalleled opportunities
for self-refinement and the pursuit of practical reason, when something
weird and unexpected arises — such as an election poll that gives a
result unreflected by any other such poll — we go “Dude, that’s
actually weird,” and are like, “You know, maybe there’s a reason.”
At this point a prediction is in order, and we feel that we can give
it with some confidence. Barack Obama may win the presidential
election, or else not win. We predict that this will depend on two
things: cause and also effect — and that it will not be the result of
building an airstrip out of palm fronds and sitting in a wicker control
tower wearing a set of headphones made out of two halves of a coconut
shell, willing the planes to come and deliver a bounty of cargo.
The last thing the McCain campaign needs on election day is demoralized
Republicans. Hence this memo, which recapitulates what Davis and co.
said on a conference call with reporters this morning.
I will tell you something that I probably shouldn't. It irritates my co-bloggers.
I for one wouldn't care that much whether Obama wins or loses if the times were even slightly less desperate. He's got plenty of presidential bids left in him.
McCain and Palin and the GOP deserve to have to unscramble the mess that Bush has made. If I thought there was a chance either one of them could fix even one of the problems without making it even worse, I'd be all for it. The best we can hope for is a president who can steer a steady course through a typhoon of Bush-related consequences. Whatever he does, whichever ticket occupies the Oval Office and environs is going to be damned if they do and if they don't.
by Teh Nutroots | As he mulls over his own former support for the war in Iraq, Sullivan provides a summary of McCain's militarism in a nutshell .
For him, it is always 1938 somewhere; America's duty is to control,
occupy or intervene wherever any rival seeks influence and any group
does not share our alleged values. And so American power must be
brought to bear in Georgia and Iraq and Iran and Burma and Darfur and
Bosnia and anyplace else where American interests are threatened or
democratic allies seek help. And for militarist American
exceptionalists, this all makes sense. This is the higher purpose
McCain lives for: the glory of liberation, the thrill of conquest, the
adoration of the soldier, the defeat of evil.
I've never understood in the first place why this attitude was ever meant to be "conservative." The only thing they're conserving is American arrogance at the expense of everything else.
by John Q. Public I've been thinking
about this topic for weeks, but have hesitated to publish my views. It
is a controversial subject. Even my powerful brothers of the far right
dare not address it (though they certainly secretly think it).
These days, it is difficult to find a woman who understands what it
means to be a lady. Even Republican women, I am sorry to say---my
ex-wife Judith is a tragic example--- seem to believe that they should
be able to compete with men in the workplace, to hold political
offices, and even to set up blog sites to offer political opinions. It
is time for women of the right to think about the example they are
setting to the next generation of Republican women. It is not a good
What finally pushed me over the edge was Michelle Malkin's post
about the military tribunal at Gitmo. Michelle, please. That is not a
suitable topic for a button-cute Republican lady and yet she has
already received responses from several male right-wing bloggers that
endorse her views without even a gentle hint to her that it would
perhaps be best if she would stick to cheerleading
and leave the heavy lifting for the men. (Why don't more right wing
blogging ladies dress up as cheerleaders, I wonder? Or French maids?
But I digress).
Mr. J.Q. Public [So Right It's Wrong] |
As the only right-winger posting at this blog, you can imagine that I
suffer a great deal of intimidation. I am almost afraid to write this,
as I am afraid that Damozel will accuse me once more of being a
'concern troll' and delete my post forthwith. Yet the subject is one
that is of deep concern to me and, I believe, to most Republican men.
I was very disappointed by this piece, 'White Men Can't Dance', penned by libertarian Megan McArdle in her blog ( 'Assymetrical 'Asymmetrical Information'). She remarks that 'for the last three seasons, the show So You Think You Can Dance has tended to be very, very white by the time it gets down to brass tacks,' as if this were a bad thing.
For centuries, white men---and, I believe, white Republicans
especially--- who try to dance have been discriminated against, to such
an extent that 'white men can't dance' has now become, to all intents
and purposes, a self-fulfilling prophecy.

I am afraid that this post will offend my co-bloggers, all of
whom are lefties. Well, so be it. This is another issue I feel
strongly about: the superior power of Republican 'tough love' to
repair our damaged society.
My lefty cobloggers have been roughing up John McCain all day about
his campaign ad proving that Obama is indifferent to wounded troops and
who---unlike John McCain, I'm sure---doesn't show up for committees. I
must beg to differ: I liked it. I thought it was hard-hitting, aggressive, and manly, like a sucker punch.
Democrats seem to think a campaign should be about issues. What
they fail to grasp is that issues are boring. Look at Al Gore and John
Kerry. Why do they think almost half the country preferred Bush?
The reason is that he had a message and he sold it: 'I'm the
decider. If you elect me, you won't have to listen to a lot of boring
talk that scares you about things that make you uncomfortable, like
global warming, the falling dollar, companies moving overseas and
outsourcing all their American jobs, the daily violence in Iraq, the
expense of health care and the lack of health care insurance. or the
so-called 'housing bubble.'
