I love refunding $0.00! I'm in!

Gmax

I would hope the American voting public has the same attitude ( about shameless oportunists and posers) as TM. I am pretty sure that is what is showing through in the RAS polling.

Publius from Idaho

I am reminded of Bill C.'s comment on this very blog in January 11, 2011 when he said,
"If it were not for double standards, the left would have no standards at all".

Danube of Thought

Let us parse the statute under which Gloria Allread wants Rush prosecuted: it is a misdemeanor for a man, speaking of a woman, "falsely and maliciously imputing to her a want of chastity."

I know this is a bit old-fashioned (so is the statute, which is almost certainly unconstitutional), but hasn't an unmarried woman who admits to a need of $1,000 per year for contraceptives acknowledged a "want of chastity?"

Clarice

Pretty sharp DoT. Gene Volokh shows why in greater detail Allred is full of it.

As for TM, someone put something in his wheaties this weekend..He's on a roll..

Jane (get off the couch - come save the country)

I just had lunch with a conservative friend of mine who keeps very up to date and she had not heard of "critical race theory".

We have more work to do. (And not because it is more important than gas prices and the economy but because it explains so much in this administration.)

matt

"all of us have become a little complicit in this kind of relaxed attitude toward some pretty offensive things"

So I guess the president is admitting his relaxed attitude in Maher's and all of the others incredible nasty comments about Palin, Breitbart, Limbaugh and others....maybe he can give us all the finger just one more time while he's at it.

Can anyone e mail me any of the photos of him doing so?

Clarice

Take tomorrow's column and mail it to your friends , Jane.

Gus

If Bullshit could walk, it would be wearing Obama's shoes.

Gmax

Continetti makes the correct point in the Beacon today:

Since he lacks a significant and popular domestic achievement, the president seems to have concluded that the way to a second term is through the mobilization of key constituencies rather than a broad-based appeal to middle America. He combines these appeals with cheap gimmicks to generate publicity and deflect attention from the Republican primary. Now that his job is in trouble, the man who enthralled millions during the campaign of 2008 has been reduced to just another transactional political panderer. The gloss is off. Even the liberal Washington Post writer Dana Milbank says White House hiring practices make “a joke of the spirit of reform he promised.”

Chubby

can we forget his using the filthy term "teabagger" from his bully pulpit?

Chubby

((Dana Milbank says White House hiring practices make “a joke of the spirit of reform he promised))


poor Dana was hoodwinked into believing that his idea of of reform and Obama's idea of reform were the one and the same thing

Gmax

I am going to remind everyone of Mr Ballard's post of about a week or so ago, the sage of JOMland. He points out that over 11 million no longer call the Democrat party home, while the other fun fact is Zero won his fantasmigorical and awesomeness victory by an overwhelming 8 million votes. If I have the numbers wrong I am sure Sir Rick will correct but that is my distinct recollection.

In other words this strategy to sell below cost and make up for it on volume is deeply flawed.

I would like it noted that since I agreed to only link any remarkable or noteworthy bottoms [or tops, both partially clothed I might add] I might accidentally run into, this site has descended into a veritable fleshpot of TM posted gals squeezing their chests like a tube of toothpaste, discussions of t***s, c***s, etc and now Sara's over on the other thread describing

the concept of "sucking a bag of dicks" or on the a treatise of girls' tits vs women's breasts

and there was some description of some guy doing something to someone's mother that I'm too redfaced to repeat verbatim.

I'd like to submit for consideration that minus the moderation of a few shapely bottoms to quell and satiate man's infernal compulsions things have soon gotten completely out of hand and may only get worse.

hit and run

Oh, and hi everybody. I'm currently in No Media March,but since the family is all out,I have been given a reprieve.

No Media March is an effort to keep from letting the tv and the intertubes suck the life out of our family. It kinda does that to us. I certainly don't miss the tv,but miss you guys.

And don't tell mrs hit and run,but I've done a few posts on my blog when no one was looking. She doesn't need to know that.

Specific to the Obama-Imus point - remember Obama's speech after the Virginia Tech shootings? He referred to Imus's nappy headed ho's as "verbal violence" (and referred to Sasha and Malia to drive the point home) in a speech about an actual shooting where dozens of people were killed. He said there's all kinds of violence,like the violence of jobs being shipped overseas and the violence of kids not getting a good education. Comforting stuff for the grieving families and Tech community.

And in that speech he used his infamous quote of "brother's keeper" that he never gets right.

Anyway, I tackle some of that here: Is Obama His Brother's Keeper. Hint: now would be a really good time for Obama to ask America (regarding the Maher's of the world) "Am I my brother's keeper?" because it would align with how it was asked in Genesis.

Oh, and I hestitated to bring her up, but I fear Obama is not living up to the expectations of Christina Taylor Green he told us about in the apex of his Tucson speech.

Gmax

Did I mention the Independents? I might have overlooked that fact since was paying homage to our sage.

I was just pointing out [jokingly] that things that I can't or won't even repeat in writing, pass without comment right after I quit posting what to me are considerably less offensive things.
"I know it when I see it" seems to have an almost infinite flexibility of interpretation.

Captain Hate

He referred to Imus's nappy headed ho's as "verbal violence" (and referred to Sasha and Malia to drive the point home) in a speech about an actual shooting where dozens of people were killed.

"Verbal violence" by making an awkward joke that drama queen C Vivian Stringer, who has never won a championship, decided to use to deflect attention away from her team's inability to beat Tennessee. In doing so she received more attention than the champions. Whatever happened to maintaining a dignified silence and letting people arrive at their own conclusions? This should've been a non-issue and it was perverse to be used in relation to the Virginia Tech shootings.

Captain Hate

I'm still not sure why you don't like Levin, TK (and apology if you've explained it before). Janet finds his delivery off-putting, which I can understand; but that doesn't strike me as something that would bother you.

hit and run

Captain:
This should've been a non-issue and it was perverse to be used in relation to the Virginia Tech shootings.

I completely agree. There were two moments in 2007 when Obama lost me (he never had me,but I thought him rather benign up until these two moments).

The VaTech speech was one.

And then there was his speech at AIPAC where he said, "The biggest enemy I think we have in this whole process ... it's not just terrorists, it's not just Hezbollah, it's not just Hamas -- it's also cynicism".

Interestingly enough -- here's an old blog post I wrote at AT that linked the two together.

Oh,and this was interesting the day after that was posted:

Apparently AT is getting lots of hate mail on H & R's Obama piece. LOL

Posted by: clarice | April 19, 2007 at 03:32 PM

I Blame Obama.

Threadkiller

I have enjoyed Levin for years,CH. I trash him for one thing only. He used to be on a tirade about giving citizenship to anchor babies. He argued, very convincingly, that it is a matter of having sole allegiance to the United States. Being born here is not enough, you can not have any dual allegiance. Period.

When you try to make a similar argument about Obama, he resorts to insults.

When you make exactly the same argument about Rubio, he shuts down the youtube of his discussion of anchor babies.

Gmax

Well besides the fact that 18-22 year old are the least likely to register and the least likely to follow thru and vote of any cohort, the swing from + 10 D to plus 4.5 R is even more than the 11 M Zero induced runoff, he has chased a lot of Indys into the R camp.

Captain Hate

Thanks for linking that, hit. In addition to pointing out so many of the things that drive me up the wall about BOzo voting "present" on things after deliberating on them for an excessive amount of time; it also reminds me that there was a time when Jason Whitlock wasn't an idiot.

Is it just me, or is this a strange way to write about a rescue/revival attempt for this skier who died of head injuries due to a crash during the World Cup Finals?

I'm not sure what "crashed hardly" means either.

Captain Hate

Thanks for the feedback, TK. I'm surprised that Mark would be inconsistent on that because he hasn't struck me that way on other issues (and by saying that I'm not saying that I don't believe you). And I understand your reaction.

Gmax

Two real inconvenient truths, first the findings of the study and two I had to go to the British media to find out about it! Why a cynic would say its like they perceive this as being not helpful for a grievance monger campaign:

isn't an anchor baby a baby that does not have a citizen parent? Obama's mother was a U.S. citizen. So I don't get the parallel between Obama and anchor babies.

Gmax

Now where would whites get those ideas? I mean with Holder doing his George Wallace impression "AA today, AA tomorrow, AA forever".

Danube of Thought

Please read Title 8 U.S. Code Section 1401 regarding citizenship. You will note that the word "allegiance" does not appear.

Gmax

Instapundit cuts through the fog of disinformation as he comments on the RAS poll showing both top Republicans outpolling Zero.

And yet the perception is that last week was bad for Republicans and good for the Dems because the Dems succeeded in painting the GOP as a bunch of ugly social-cons. What gives?

Clarice

I believe Rubio's parent were lawful residents, refugees from Cuba--Also not an anchor baby.An anchor baby is someone whose mom flies or swims in, gives birth and goes home or remains here illegally.

I was sure that in the past I had heard Obama say "tea bagger", but going back, all I could find was a video of him talking about protestors waving tea bags around ...

so I must have misremembered him saying it and my post upthread was wrong

Threadkiller

So as not to get thrown onto Alice's brand new narcisolator, I will refrain from discussing definitions we have beat to death.

Mark Levin based HIS compelling argument on allegiance. "Sole allegiance" to be exact. Rubio's parents passed on to Marco dual allegiance. Obama's daddy passed on to Bozo dual allegiance.

Mark is not consistent.

A question on taste for the free speech advocates here and especially those who have tut-tutted Rush's remarks about Fluke: Are those Pink Code ladies considered "slutty" for exposing themselves in public? I have known the police to charge men urinating in alley ways or along the side of a road with indcecent exposure which here in Florida puts you on sexual offender registry.

Is this another double standard? Or is it just not worth the bother since the left would never accept that anything they do can be catergorized as lewd, sexually explicit or worthy of deragatory charicterization?

Thank you Gmax and RB . You have made my day!

Gmax

Whadda ya think, is John from Powerline right in pointing out that the law of unintended consequences biting zero in the tush? Here:

The Democrats thought they had a great distraction from the economic issues that bedevil most Americans in the form of 30-year-old activist Sandra Fluke. Rush Limbaugh foolishly (as he later acknowledged) called her a “slut” and a “prostitute” in the course of ridiculing, entirely properly, her very silly claim that the federal government should force all employers to pay for their female employees’ contraception–I never did figure out whether the plan extended to buying male employees condoms and vasectomies–regardless of whether either the employers or employees prefer such benefits to cash compensation. Ms. Fluke’s theory, really, was so stupid as to be a ripe target for ridicule.

The Democrats went crazy in the aftermath of Rush’s error, posturing themselves as the upholders of civility. Barack Obama got into the act, calling Ms. Fluke to congratulate her on her demand for free goods and services, and to ask how her delicate psyche was a holding up. Obama later explained that he did it for his daughters, Sasha and Malia, whom he would never want to hear coarse language.

Well. There was a basic problem with the Democrats’ strategy; namely, that pretty much everyone knows that when a Democrat talks about a Republican woman, “slut” or “prostitute” would be considered a compliment. So it was no surprise when conservatives pointed out that Bill Maher, who contributed $1 million to Obama’s re-election campaign, has called Sarah Palin a “c***” and a “dumb t***,” along with other, sometimes worse, epithets. When asked about Maher’s disgusting attacks, President’s Obama’s press secretary explained that Obama is not a speech policeman. So evidently Sasha and Malia will have to hear some crude talk after all–from Democrats, anyway.

Danube of Thought

Hard to call them naturalized when Section 1401 says "The following shall be nationals and citizens of the United States at birth." if the congress wanted to declare the naturalized citizens, it knew how to do so, and elsewhere has legislated extensively on naturalization.

And as we know from as far back as Calvin's case (1608), a citizen at birth is a natural born citizen.

Congress cannot declare them anything more than naturalized. Your quote is still true, as an act of naturalization, so they need not say more.

If saying more is better, though, congress should have gone the extra step to declare 14th amendment citizens as "natural born citizens". They "knew how to do so", so their omission must have been purposeful.
