I was going to make some pithy comment about DeLong's brain, but I got nuthin'.

I have a fear that if this does go down as it looks it may, we may see the people of New York storm the Bastille and hang the guy.

3,000 dead in the worst terrorist act in history, and Holder is playing with a hand grenade with pin pulled.

As they say in Texas, give them a quick, fair trial and hangin'.

75% of people in the world think Obama will do the right thing for who, Americans or them?

Topsecretk9

Obama is a sad, pathetic mess and liberals and Democrats know it -- that's why they are obsessed and going lippin' nutso over Sarah Palin. If they were confident in Obama (like Kos pretends today) they would not be so over the top crazy over Sarah. I'm out of popcorn watching Andrew Sullivan go positively lunitic over her.

It's like they were just getting warmed up with Bush. I dunno, I really think this level of lunacy is dangerous.

More Obamateur Hour http://corner.nationalreview.com/post/?q=OTcwYmFmMGFkMDliMmY5ZDY0MDdjMzZkZDRmNzYwZTI=>[Andy McCarthy]

In a meeting with the press in China, President Obama said that Khalid Sheikh Mohammed would be "convicted" and had "the death penalty applied to him" . . . and then said he wasn't "pre-judging" the case. He made the second statement after it was pointed out to him — by NBC's Chuck Todd — that the first statement would be taken as the president's interfering in the trial process. Obama said that wasn't his intention. I'm sure it wasn't — he's trying to contain the political damage caused by his decision — but that won't matter. He has given the defense its first motion that the executive branch, indeed the president himself, is tainting the jury pool. Nice work.

Andy is on a roll over at The Corner.

clarice

Well, how dare they question whether he knows he's tainting the jury pool--For heaven's sake he went to HLS, was editor of the HLS review and taught (was NOT a professor) at the U of Chicago law school.

Personally, I wish we had someone from Fordham running the show or the Unive of Wisconsin--you know a REAL person with some common sense.

Is the testimony on still or has it ended? Cspan? Senate right?

Dave (in MA)

Who could have known that that the Rainbow Unicorn was a lame nag with a glued on horn, and the gold coins it crapped were wooden nickels sprayed with Krylon™.

It's a Willy Wonka world: "I think that we've restored America's standing in the world, and that's confirmed by polls," he told CNN's Ed Henry in a wide-ranging interview this week during his trip to China." Hand them both the English language copy of Der Spiegel.

Dave, some of us were prepared for the carnival's tunnel of love in harsh daylight. You, too, I bet.
Pres. Obamateur! "Obamateur Hour" is too perfect, Sue.

Jim Ryan

It's because she's beautiful, she perfectly communicates of a host of conservative and common-sense values, and she has a certain innocence of heart. The wicked hate those things when found in one package.

And yes, much popcorn is required. The effete gnashing of wicked teeth, their fits of impotent rage, is an unending delight to behold.

One other thing: she's obviously very bright because she can speak extemporaneously in paragraphs without saying "um", unlike the idiot they elected. You have no idea of the exquisite pain that causes in the heart of a neurotic statist buffoon.

clarice

He has a problem with verb tenses, TM..

Frau Rotkohl

clarice - re: "you know a REAL person with some common sense." With toilet paper stuck to his shoe, Richard Cohen threw his personal dreck at Gov. Palin today: "She was clearly seen as an empty vessel who could be controlled by her intellectual betters." Common sense must be code for 'stupid' for leftists.

BTW Going to Far Rockaway High School has gone to Cohen's head.

Pofarmer

So, if these attacks on Palin continue, how many people are going to identify with her, rather than be persuaded by the left?

jimmyk

I wish we had someone from Fordham running the show or the Unive of Wisconsin

Fordham, maybe, but Wisconsin brings to mind Ann ("Even though I was gullible enough to vote for Obama, I still say Sarah Palin is dumb") Althouse. Ok, an improvement over Holder, but that's a pretty low bar.

Frau Rotkohl

I hesitate to LUN to Cohen's article, because it is such BS. Smart people refuse to read it. But...be warned about content and photo of Mr. Unappropriate Behavior.

clarice

Frau, He went there with my law school roommate and--Bernie Madoff!!!!

Sara (Pal2Pal)

I am about halfway through GOING ROGUE. Although I think Sarah's writing gets alittle flowery, I'm fascinated by the tale. Her two pages of description of what the Valdez oil spill was like for the Alaskans was the best description I've read. I understood the real magnitude of that tragedy in her telling of it. Where we heard lots about the oil slicks and the animals that died or that hundreds worked so hard to clean enough for them to live, I don't recall hearing much about the people whose lives were ruined all over Alaska. The bankruptcies, the repossessions, the suicides, I was wiping tears as I read that brief couple of pages.

Rob Crawford

Neither does he, Charlie, neither does he.

anduril

I heard the soundbite while I was driving home, and it's just like the transcript presents it, except that the transcript doesn't communicate the haste with which Obama backpedals.

I can't imagine much that would be more prejudicial than the POTUS not only declaring a defendant guilty but pronouncing a capital sentence on him in a nationally telecast interview. I guess this is the new stern Barry - stern to his subjects but servile to foreigners - but to me it's the same old dumb Barry.

from CyberCynic:


Poisoned Google search

I like Google a lot. I couldn’t live without it. Heck, I even found a way to find flu vaccines on it the other day. But, that doesn’t mean I trust its results unconditionally. That’s a good thing. Cyber security research firm, Cyveillance has discovered that more than 200,000 Web sites have been infected with a new way to deliver malware via Google search results.

According to Cyveillance, here’s how it works. First a blog site is compromised. Often these are sites using out of date versions of the popular online photo gallery software Coppermine. For the most part, these are real, but neglected, blogs who users are no longer keeping them up or they’d notice something fishy was going on.

Once compromised these blogs start automatically publishing bogus posts. These posts are crudely SEOed (search engine optimized) images with minimal text. It’s not the page’s content that’s compromised though. It’s the blog’s templates that frame the images. Google then, in good faith, indexes these pages for you to find them.

Pray for Obama. Psalm 109:8

“Let his days be few; may another take his office.”

maybe the next US elections can be held overseas

Only fair. They paid for the last one.

"Common sense must be code for 'stupid' for leftists."

Can one use the words common sense and leftist in the same sentence?

Sara (Pal2Pal)

Althouse is embarrassing herself today. So far she has called Palin dumb and the book "pablum," even though she has yet to read it.

Sara (Pal2Pal)

Via Say Anything:

Like it or not, this woman is a star:

Oprah Winfrey’s interview with former vp candidate Sarah Palin scored the talk show host her highest rating in two years.

Monday’s episode of “The Oprah Winfrey Show” drew a 8.7 household rating and 13 share—the best since Oprah had the entire Osmond family on the show in 2007.

That means Palin also topped Oprah’s heavily viewed interviews with Whitney Houston at the start of the season.

Harvard Law School Grad Obama's obvious ignorance of American Jurisprudence and tainting the Jury pool and all the rest suddenly makes me reconsider President Bushes nomination of Harriet Myers to the Supreme Court.

Compared to BozoBama, she now looks like Oliver Wendell Holmes.

daddy

If anyone cares,

The first 10 minutes of today's Dan Fagan Talk Show in Anchorage is a continual damning of Sarah:

"She is "a small person..."

"It's always everybody else's fault..."

"Doesn't anyone else but me see her meanness?",

"She's not who you think she is folks...",

"She's so petty and mean like a 16 year old teenage girl..."

"She's like those girls in that movie 'Heather's' or 'Mean Girls'..."

And my favorite,

"But I'm not going to criticize Sarah Palin today...I'm tired of doing it..."

Charlie (Colorado)

Who could have known that that the Rainbow Unicorn was a lame nag with a glued on horn, and the gold coins it crapped were wooden nickels sprayed with Krylon™.

Pretty well everyone who was paying any sort of attention.

Gregory Koster

Daddy, let's not fall into the trap of letting The Once's blunders and idiotic nominees reset the standards for everyone. Just imagine the shrieks from the sinistrosphere if Geo. W. had commented on terror trials the way The Once did. After three years and two more months of The Once, the nation is going to need the highest caliber of leadership to come back.

Good God, that Fagan is a swine, swimming in a sewer of imbecility. Squawk radio's exemplar.

daddy

Greg,

Hope you folks don't mind me posting so much Fagan, but especially with the book coming out and the tour etc, I think it's worthwhile for you guys to know she's still being murdered up here, so if or when local opinion poles or Fagan start getting lower 48 airplay, at least you'll not be scratching your heads as to where its coming from.

I do have to admit tho' that it is exhausting to listen to.

Where we heard lots about the oil slicks and the animals that died or that hundreds worked so hard to clean enough for them to live, I don't recall hearing much about the people whose lives were ruined all over Alaska.

Sara,

In the 90's I managed a photocopy company in Minneapolis that handled all the work for the Valdez litigation, on the side of the plaintiffs. During discovery we were sent the files of hundreds of small fishing companies in Alaska. Some of these folks literally dumped their filing cabinets into garbage bags and mailed them directly to the law firm, who forwarded them to us as is. These were mostly family businesses run out of home and garage offices. Mixed with the files were all kinds of things - toys, laundry lists, school assignments, family photos showing beautiful children holding up fish on boats during better times. Kids had drawn pictures on backs of invoices. We copied everything.

I still have two souvenirs - an R2D2 action figure, and a tiny little pink water pistol on a keychain, both found in the bottom of a bag inside a cardboard box from some poor family's files.

It was heartbreaking.

Lindsay Beyerstein went suborbital on the Newsweek thing. LUN.

Also, here.

Unbelievable. Evidently, the photographer put some kind of (subjective, and highly debatable) crosshairs on Ms. Palin's veejayjay, and so she's a dumbass for letting him do that. Or something. It's really hard to tell.
