Olbermann - Crazy

Rupert Murdoch, founder of the 'fair and balanced' Fox News channel was quoted by several media outlets saying he thinks Barack Obama will win in a landslide.

Slightly less reported was this Wall Street Journal article where Murdoch shares his opinion of Keith Olbermann. Asked whether he would consider hiring MSNBC's prime time host to bring more balance to Fox News, Rupert said,
"No, I fired him five years ago… He’s crazy."

There was one other worthy quote from this piece. It reveals Murdoch's opinion of domestic oil drilling and U.S. energy policy, where he states,
"We didn’t buy Alaska to save a couple of elk"

You know, some people out there DO get it.

Recount - Part Duh

It's Presidential Election season in Florida, again. Right on cue, the Disenfranchised State is in a tizzy.

There's one interesting note from the article. The DNC is making it clear, no protests allowed!

Irony, on so many levels.

HBO's Recount

Tonight at 9pm, HBO films presents a look at the 2000 election debacle in Florida.

We all remember the controversy surrounding hanging chads, voter disenfranchisement, and pathetic election night predictions of the MSM. It was a gut-wrenching time for American Presidential politics and set the stage for 8 years of Democrat whining about Bush being "selected, not elected".

Soviet Anthem and Obama

Hat tip to Pajamas Media for a story about a free concert held last weekend in Portland Oregon. The headliners were a group named the Decemberists who start each one of their concerts with the Soviet National anthem.

The media hailed the event as an Obama rally, where 75,000 came to show their overwhelming support. The problem is they failed to mention the Decemberists role completely.

Irony surrounds the band's chosen name. The Decemberists were a real organization founded in the early 1800's. Unfortunately their rebellion to establish a constitutional democracy was unsuccessful and members were either killed or exiled to Siberia by the very political persuasions this rock group hails as glorious.

Just like the new progressives, the new communists completely misunderstand history. Communism forbade rock and roll; free expression was stifled. Only in Amerika is this type of political free speech allowed.

Oleg Atbashian, creator of, authored the PJM piece. Having lived under the old Soviet regime, his recognition of Communism comes through first hand experience. He understands the danger of nanny-state control and the superficial promises Obama offers.

Sleep-walking Americans, lacking historical context, will soak up the message of hope and change. Gladly hopping on the bandwagon so as to cleanse themselves of political/racial guilt, these mind-numbed-robots will pull the lever for Barack.

Forgive them Lord, they know not what they do.

Simple Math

Thanks to Steve Keeley of FOX29 News, the obligatory Friday before Memorial Day report from the shore, whining about gas prices, has just been aired.

Gas is somewhere around $3.80 and according to this genius, the price is enough to change holiday travel plans. He did the same report when the price was $2.80. He provided us with figures from AAA stating less people will travel this weekend simply because of the prices to prove his point.

So let's do a little basic math...

According to Keeley's report, drivers will average 100 miles to reach their favorite shore town. Considering you must get back to work eventually, count 200 miles. If you get a pathetic 10 miles to the gallon, you'll use 20 gallons of gas.

Steve's premise leads one to think the high price of gas is altering vacation plans. However, if you can afford a weekend down the shore, why would an additional $20 stop you?

Perspective folks, the news media has lost it.

You know who you are, so no need for me to say it here. While you weren't a part of the majority last night, you are brave for standing with me. For that, I am eternally grateful.

Over the past 15 days I have been busy attempting to win over the the hearts and minds of ATRO members. Last night they chose someone else. While my official opponent was a straight-laced, upstanding gentleman who will do a better job than the outgoing chairman, he wasn't the one I was competing against.

The theme last night centered around three primary issues.

The first issue was fundraising. The new chair will do a better job than the exiting one. The former chair is now MCRC's new treasurer. It says something about the judgement of the new leadership at MCRC when they tap the resources of a proven failure. If ATRO needs money so desperately, it's because the old guard was miserably ineffective at the task. The good news - his days manipulating ATRO are over.

The second issue, as stated by one member to me last night, payback. Anger towards an individual I dared to support, years ago. Unfortunately, some voting members couldn't get beyond their issues with him. (No, they weren't talking about Jim)

The third issue, loyalty. Jon Fox taught me something about it over the last 5 months. Proving that while he expects it, he has no understanding of the concept himself.

To all my friends in ATRO, including those voting for my opponent, it's been a pleasure standing next to you over the past 8 years. I accept your decision and appreciate the kind words you shared with me after last night's vote.

The results won't deter me from my conservative flag-waving. But now that I have some additional time on my hands, I'll use it wisely. First on the calender, 8 laps behind the wheel at Pocono Raceway on Father Day. Video is sure to follow!

That's all for now. My four-year-old is struggling with his shoe laces, again.

McCain Jumps the Shark

It's one thing to reach across the aisle and work with Democrats to reach bi-partisan reform. It's one thing to be a thorn in the side of conservatives focused on Supreme Court appointments. But when you adopt bad science and embrace the global warming fraud, you are going where conservatives and thinking people don't dare.

John McCain has been teasing adoption of the wacko environmentalists platform on climate change for months. Yesterday, he jumped the shark.

I can understand political posturing to appeal to the larger general election audience. But the move shows a lack of wisdom and strength, for someone who wants a position which begs such qualities.

Hey John, less talking please. Both Democrats have fallen in the polls as more people hear from them and see their true colors. As you faded from the spotlight after securing the nomination, your numbers steadily rose. Haven't you noticed?

57 States?

Barack Obama stated last Friday he's visited every corner of the U.S. and visited all 57 States but one, oh and Alaska and Hawaii, which his staff doesn't see as worthy of a appearance.

In this video, Barack does seem a little road weary, and he may have wanted to say 47. So perhaps we have just a slip of the tongue - similar to the senior moment McCain would have been accused of having - or perhaps there's more to it.

57, the same number as there are in the Organization of Islamic Countries. Kind of makes you want to scratch your head.

Dodo Yoko

Imagine there's no heaven, it's easy if you try...

We all remember the words to the classic Lennon song. The enticing thought that we are here for no apparent reason, that God and Heaven don't exist. If true, throw out the rules, anything goes. It's the wishful thinking of some on the left.

Yoko Ono is suing creators of Ben Stein's Expelled movie, for using a portion of Imagine in their documentary about Darwin and Intelligent Design.

Nice try Yoko, but using copyrighted material to make a political statement is allowed in our free country.

Clinton, 'Change the Constitution'

Hillary wants to change the Constitution (see this) to give full voting rights in the House of Representatives to all United States territories including Guam, D.C., Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, and Samoa. Currently, such representation is only bestowed upon states.

Not exactly an earth-shattering stance, but since Guam was in the spotlight, why not pander? It didn't help Hillary much however, Obama wins by 7 votes.

Forget super delegates, now that the residents of Guam have weighed in on the battle, is there any more to be said? The idea is just as good as the current Democrat process, isn't it?

The victory in the tiny South Pacific island caucuses does nothing to breathe new life into Barack's campaign. The wheels are clearly coming off his train.
