Richard Aubrey

I can't speak for all officers, but the guys with whom I went through The Benning School for Boys (1969) averaged pretty high in quality. How'd this guy get to be whatever he is/was? And do we know it for sure?


The Hill has this James Clyburn (D-SC) quote:

"There were some real shenanigans going on in the South Carolina primary," Clyburn said during an appearance on the liberal Bill Press radio show. "I don't know if he was a Republican plant; he was someone's plant."

Clyburn goes from hearing imaginary racial epithets to seeing imaginary Republican plants.



Wow. How bad does the other Democrat have to be for a guy with no campaign to win the primary?


Kinda makes you wish there was SOME sort of "intelligence" or "current events awareness" test for voting, huh?


What would happen if they added "None of the above" to the ballot?


"Officer" does not necessarily mean "Commissioned Officer" to the media; they don't understand the difference between "Commissioned Officer" and "Non-Commissioned Officer."

What's funny is how the SC Democrats are now trying to get him to withdraw. Seems they had no idea about his record; they were too busy watching and chuckling over the circus the Republicans were putting on.

So how did he get elected over the other candidate(s)? Says a lot about the quality and intelligence of the voters ... which just might explain why Obama still has a 48% approval rating.

BB Key

Fowler, Clyburn, The State, Post & Courier,and WIS-TV were not interested in finding out who Alvin Greene was until after he won.
This is the same crowd who vetted Barack Obama for us in 2008.

Captain Hate

Carol Fowler was the witless whore who claimed that the only reason Sarah Palin was chosen as McCain's running mate was she hadn't had an abortion. Sheer genius of the donks to keep her in a position of responsibility.


Ras with some delightful news:

Sharron Angle, following her come-from-behind Republican Primary win Tuesday, has bounced to an 11-point lead over Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid in Nevada’s closely-watched U.S. Senate race. A new Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of Likely Voters in Nevada, taken Wednesday night, shows Angle earning 50% support while Reid picks up 39% of the vote. Five percent (5%) like some other candidate, and six percent (6%) are undecided. A month ago, Angle led Reid 48% to 40% but ran poorest against the incumbent of the three GOP primary hopefuls as she has for months


I sure hope Angle can trounce Reid in Nov., and I hope Fiorina can do the same to Boxer.


That is certainly one hell of a Democratic party they have there in South Carolina. Nobody seems to even know the guy, Greene, who won.
Now they are trying for a "Torricelli maneuver."

Captain Hate

This quote is money: State Sen. Robert Ford, D-Charleston, who lost his gubernatorial bid Tuesday, said race could have played a role. The Democratic primary electorate is majority black, as is Greene, but not Rawl. " Vic Rawl had money, but he didn't have enough. He wasn't able to identify himself with black voters," Ford said. " No white folks have an 'e' on the end of Green. The blacks after they left the plantation couldn't spell, and they threw an 'e' on the end."

BB Key

Thanks to you and State Sen.Robert Ford.

This confirms my suspicion that Greene got a pass from Fowler, Clyburn, et al because he was black. Give SC Democrats credit, they excell in identity politics.

Ford said. " No white folks have an 'e' on the end of Green. The blacks after they left the plantation couldn't spell, and they threw an 'e' on the end."

Wow. That's a special kind of ignoramus.

There are multiple counties across the US named "Greene". There is a town of Greene, Maine, that has birth and death records dating back to 1730 posted online. It's likely the spelling is either the vestige of a pronounced 'e' at the end of a name, or just the kind of variation you get. The idea that it's somehow connected to slavery is not just dumb, but militantly dumb -- the kind of idea that takes root in someone who seeks to explain everything with a single cause.


From NRO's The Corner

wrote this morning in the American Spectator about how tight the vote is on Senator Murkowski's bid to stop the EPA regulating CO2. It looks like Sen. Scott Brown is fully on board now, and three cheers to him for that, but thanks to a midnight deal by an obviously scared Harry Reid, Senator Webb of Virginia looks like he's going to vote no.

If you're a Virginian, get on to his office. You can call 1-866-507-1570 or use this handy-dandy message generator, courtesy of FreedomAction, to send his office an email.

Other senators are also on the fence. If you're a constituent of any of these and want EPA's power grab stopped, call or message them using the link above or this one from Americans for Prosperity. The senators that most need to hear from their constituents are:

Sen. Bayh, Indiana Sen. Dorgan, North Dakota Sen. Conrad (apparently targeted by Reid, like Sen. Webb), North Dakota Sen. Tester, Montana Sen. Pryor, Arkansas Sen. Warner, Virginia Sen. Begich, Alaska

Here are some things you can tell them:

● Every senator who votes no is taking full responsibility for the consequences of EPA regulation of greenhouse-gas emissions.

● The Reid alternative, a vote on Sen. Rockefeller's bill to delay regulation by two years, is not an adequate alternative. Who will invest in a new factory if EPA is going to begin regulating emissions within two years? Even Sen. Rockefeller is supporting Sen. Murkowski.

● The argument many Senators are making, that this is a vote against higher fuel-economy standards, is silly. See here.

This issue is vital. Any help you can give is much appreciated.

Jack is Back!


Live report from the QM2. Number one topic is the World Cup among the Brits. Number two topic among the Brits is "WTF is up with Obama trying to destroy their pensions"? Number three topic among the Brits, "We didn't see him as some one who is totally bonkers".

Number one topic among the Americans (and we are 1,200 to the Brits 800 on board) is "WTF is with Obama talking like a Chicago gangster"? and then they look at you and realize that that is what he aspires to be and they had no idea it would be like this. You smile confidently that you knew this all along.

Number two topic among us Yanks is "So, when are you Brits going to wake up and understand that you and the rest of world are in deep doo-doo because we Yanks foisted this dead-head useless charlatan on you and there is absolutely nothing anyone outside the voters in 2010 and 2012 can do about it".

Which brings us to the answer to all this, which is lets go down to the Golden Lion Pub, have a few pints and watch the opening ceremony of the World Cup. And I know that the testosterone level of most JOMer's is decidedly NFL but for sheer passion I suggest you watch some of the "beautiful" game especially the opening game for the Yanks which is against England. That is what the Brits do not feel comfortable talking about since the last time they played each other in a World Cup was 1951 and The Unites States upset England 1-0. It was the goal heard around the Empire at the time. If it happens this year it will be even more bitterly felt by our cousins over the pond. Everyone is on pins and needles and no amount of Newcastle Brown Ale can hide the pending gloom and doom.

Weather is turning sour. But the food is good and the activities interesting. We have John Berendt on board giving lectures about Savannah, Venice and New Orleans. Evidently, his next book takes place in New Orleans. He is very interesting guy, a little off putting but good humor.

Cheers to all.

Captain Hate

It looks like Sen. Scott Brown is fully on board now, and three cheers to him for that

This is great news. We knew he'd be a mixed bag, as witnessed by the financial regulation vote, but definitely preferable to Coakley. This vote will confirm that.


You know I like call that former Klan recruiter by his proper name, Cornelius Sales Jr, not the one he appropriated from the Byrd

Btw, the 'genius' of John Cornyn is manifest
yet again,


Massachusetts TV is flooded with ads today telling Brown he must vote "yes". I can't figure out if that is the good side or the bad side.


A vote for the Murkowski bill is the right side--Jane


Gallup has O at his lowest..44% approve, 49% disapprove.

Clyburn, who originated the lie about the tea party at the Capitol claims Greene is a put up job, a Moby as it were..

And some reporter is already asking where he got the 10 K filing fee when he was given taxpayer paid counsel just recently on the ground he had no money.

South Carolina: the are we having fun yet state.


We didn't see him as some one who is totally bonkers?

Being surprised at any aspect of Obama's presidency is like being disappointed in the lack of religious allegory in Transformers 2. I suppose I should look on the bright side, that at least some of his supporters didn't want what he was obviously going to be, they were just so unfathomably stupid that they thought he would be something else. Which still leaves the question, what did they expect?


Earlier today I read that Ear leader was going to meet with BP president next week. Robert Gibbs is talking now and he says the "relevant person" is the chairman of the Bd, and he won't rule out Obama meeting with him at some point. Apparently the President of BP is still irrelevant

Frau Donnerstag

Born: 1917 AD
Currently alive, at 92 years of age.

Asleep and Dreamin' At the Wheel.

Murkowski may pass, just as a shot across Obama's bow. There is plenty of political cover for Democrats who want to send a message to Browner and Jackson.


Why is it when I saw this Drudge headline,

Soros Says 'We Have Just Entered Act II' of Crisis as Europe's Woes Spread...

I immediately got an image of Soros smiling, cackling triumphantly:

"All my years of hard labor are coming to fruition! Capitalism and democracy are dying, and this crisis will finally lead the world to my hegemonic global government and a New World Order!"


Here is the BP Chairman:

P D Sutherland, KCMG
Peter Sutherland (57) rejoined BP's board in 1995, having been a non-executive director from 1990 to 1993, and was appointed chairman in 1997. He is non-executive chairman of Goldman Sachs International and a non-executive director of Telefonaktiebolaget LM Ericsson, Investor AB and The Royal Bank of Scotland Group. He was awarded an honorary KCMG in 2003.

Maybe the president feels more comfortable with someone from Goldman when discussing how to mop up oil.

Is Maurice Strong under arrest yet?

I suspect even George is worried, fd; he was big in the AGW stuff and global governance through carbon encumbering.


Crikey as they would say, Down Under, Goldman is Cuthulhu's spawn, they are everywhere,

Where is Heraklos?



btw, guess who's going to be in WPB in the fall, campaigning for West,


I wish Soros was worried, but I think all of this (even the public turning away from the cult of AGW) is part of his and the Left's Grand Plan, a.k.a. Antonio Gramsci's "long march through the culture" strategy.

ALL of their actions and policies have been intended to undermine and destroy people's faith in all major Western institutions so that they can advance their own authoritarian, Leftist statism as the solution to the world's problems.

These institutions include government, economic systems, academia, the media and the press, religion (especially the Christian / Catholic church), the American military, the nuclear family structure, respect for life, etc etc.


" ... to undermine and destroy people's faith in all major Western institutions ..."

This should have included "instutions and values".


This BP thing has wierd echoes of the flap about whether Obama would meet with the intolerable, unspellable president of Iran.

(I thought Obama would meet with any hostile power. Guess that does not include evil corporations...)


Sutherland is no longer Chairman of BP. He left the board of BP in January 2010.


Yes it's this guy, in the LUN


If you compare Haywood's bio - he's been in the oil industry forever with a PHD in geology, starting on a rig, with Svanberg, it is easy to see why the President prefers Svanberg. He has no qualifications in the oil industry but the Swedish king once gave him a medal.


I know that struck me as well, he knows the business, Svanberg formerly of Ericson, Baas Boveri?? (why are there so many Swedes on this thing) the Earth Institute of Columbia
University, did I read that right


OT, Gawker walking the story backwards on the Palin boob job LUN


Svanberg looks like he could eat Bambi for lunch.

Rob Crawford

It's funny reading the comments about how hot she is. They really don't want to admit she is a pretty woman, any way you slice it.


Oh, narciso, what great news..Maybe you'll get to meet her after all.


Most all those locales down south named after Greene (Greenville, Greene County, Greensboro etc, are named after great Revolutionary War General ">http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nathanael_Greene"> Nathanael Greene.

He was Washington's number 2 guy through most of the War, and the guy who in the last years was sent South to save the Southern Campaign and run Cornwallis ragged. Was a heck of a smart guy.

He was a Quaker with a limp from Rhode Island, but shortly after the end of the War he accepted large chunks of territory and farm houses given to him by grateful Southern States, and surprisingly he took up slave-owning, in order to pay his debts and try to get wealthy. Unfortunately he died of heat stroke shortly after the War.

More interesting is that it is his wife, Caty, who was the life of the family. She claimed to have slept with Lafayette, General Mad Anthony Wayne, and who knows else. She was a pistol, sat on Ben Franklin's lap as a young girl, since her favorite Aunt was one of Ben's favorite girlfriends. Washington dug her, and at some Ball around Valley Forge Days she danced every dance with General Washington, to the shock of fat General Henry Knox's wife, who she secretly chided for chunkyness in letters to her husband.

Anyhow, thats just some off the top stuff on where Greene with an 'e' probably comes from down south. Suspect that many slave families adopted the Greene name, either as a result of being his property, or possibly as it was such a famous name, second only to Washington in gravitas following the War.


Thanks Clarice for posting that EPA vote info and numbers to call.

That SOB Begich has said he has received verbal assurances that the EPA won't go overboard if given this regulatory authority, so he's voting against Lisa. Man, what a weasel.

Out of one side of his mouth he pretends to demand permission to drill in Alaska, while out of the other side he offers the EPA regulatory power to squash drilling and mining and industry and anything else you can think that emits carbon. He massively sucks.


I hope so too, Clarice, daddy, you always have
some of the most interesting anecdotes, I found the Chaffin book on the CSS Sutherland,
and I saw another book on the search for the NorthWest Passage with references to Cook, Bering, et al, include not a few incursions around what would be known as Little Diomede Island


Thanks JiB for that good report. Have a great time and keep educating our foreign cousins.


Mukowski's proposed amendment failed 47-53. Obama wins again. He, not congress, will make law.


This is a hoot:

"House Majority Whip James Clyburn (D-S.C.) called for South Carolina to investigate the circumstances that led to Alvin Greene winning the Democratic Senate primary in his state earlier this week."

"There were some real shenanigans going on in the South Carolina primary," Clyburn said during an appearance on the liberal Bill Press radio show. "I don't know if he was a Republican plant; he was someone's plant."

I guess they just can't accept the fact that Dem voters are stupid enough to vote for someone like Greene.

It must be due to some malicious effort on the part of those evil Republi-KKK-ans and Karl Rove.

PARANOIA is more like it.




Sue, what rotten news. Maybe a suitable candidate for a court fight.

Rob Crawford

Odd thought about Clyburn's paranoid "plant" theory: If, supposedly, Republicans have the practice of running black candidates in Democrat primaries in order to siphon votes from other candidates, doesn't that imply that some Democrats will vote for black candidates in preference to other candidates?

Rob Crawford

OT: I claim vindication against all the trolls and lefty feebs who defend ACORN's fraudulent registrations by claiming "registrations aren't votes". Why? Judicial Watch got some of the evidence the FBI collected against ACORN in some of the fraudulent registration cases, and among the reasons for the fraudulent regs:

-- To cause confusion on election day to keep polls open longer

-- To allow people who can’t vote to vote.

-- To allow to vote multiple times.

Just like I said.

"Overwhelm the system" I could have sworn I read something about that somewhere



Even our left leaning assembly last night voted unanimous urging Begich to vote with Lisa Murkowski on this Bill.

His re-election is a long time away but man I do hope we can keep the anger generated against this moron Begich at the top of our minds till then.

Cecil Turner

Another interesting Greene, Israel, the Lt of Marines who led the assault on John Brown's insurgents at Harper's Ferry in 1859 (also interesting is that the action was commanded by Robert E. Lee and rescued Colonel Lewis Washington, a great-grandnephew of George).

His failure to bring a regulation saber (using only a light dress sword in the assault) resulted in non-fatal wounds to Brown, whose subsequent trial raised passions on both sides (and many claim precipitated the Civil War).

Later a Confederate States Marine, I rather doubt many slaves named their children after him.

BB Key

Gibbs and Les Kinsolving (sp?) got into a Kerfuffle today over Bambi's Soc Sec# which turned to a dicussion of the birth certificate.

I was told by CSPAN it would be up later today


Apparently, the soc sec # Obama uses had to have been issued in Ct. And that is impossible. The issue has been kicking around the net for a week or two.


So maybe his SSN is as phony as he is? Not a surprise.

Busy at work, not keeping up with all the comments, but during my lunch hour I heard the Shep Smith interview of Greene. Good grief - no wonder folks are asking questions about where he came from, where he got $10K, poor guy didn't sound too bright. Even if he was a "plant," how did he get so many danged votes? Oh, right . . . dumb question, huh?


Here is Politico's version of the Gibbs - Kinsolving Q&A

White House press secretary Robert Gibbs confronted WorldNetDaily correspondent Lester Kinsolving in the White House briefing Thursday, challenging the reporter to say whether he believed President Obama is a U.S. citizen after questioning the authenticity of Obama's Social Security number.

In the last question of the day, Kinsolving asked Gibbs "why the president is using a Social Security Number reserved for Connecticut applicants" – alluding to a popular conspiracy theory among some who question the president's citizenship.

Gibbs began to reply, saying he was "amazed" by the question, before interrupting himself to ask directly: "Do you think the president was born here, Lester? Do you think the president was born in the United States?"

"I don't know," the conservative correspondent answered, adding he wants to see Obama's birth certificate.

"I've seen the real birth certificate. I put it on the Internet," Gibbs shot back. "And I appreciate your forthrightness on the birth answer."

Melinda Romanoff

wnd has a story on that that I will not link to.

Melinda Romanoff



The WaPo today has a very interesting article re Emily Henochowicz, the American art student who had her face smashed by Israeli police firing a high velocity tear gas canister at her: U.S. student pays devastating physical price to protest Israel's actions.

I'm a bit rushed, so I'm gonna paste in a few excerpts:

Emily Henochowicz wasn't thinking about protests or Palestinians or tear gas canisters when she went to Israel in February for a one-semester college exchange program.

The 21-year-old art student from Montgomery County wanted to study animation, and Jerusalem's Bezalel Academy had a good program.

It was a plus to spend time in Israel. Henochowicz grew up in an observant Jewish household and had her bat mitzvah at Potomac's Har Shalom synagogue. Her father was born in Tel Aviv, and his parents are Polish Holocaust survivors.

But Henochowicz became critical of Israel in the spring, after accompanying a friend to a demonstration in East Jerusalem against the eviction of Palestinian families. Very quickly, she began participating regularly in protests against Israeli policies, especially the expansion of Jewish settlements on the West Bank.

"I decided that I was not just going to talk about this. I'm going to do something about it," she said.


"I really feel like I love Israel, and just like anybody that I feel about deeply, if I see they're doing something that's harming people, then I feel it's my duty to say something out of that love," Henochowicz said.

She added that Israel was "ultimately hurting itself" through its policies, particularly by allowing Jewish settlements on occupied land and denying equal rights to Palestinians.

At the West Bank protest where Henochowicz was injured, other demonstrators who witnessed the incident said the canister was fired directly at Henochowicz from about 10 to 15 yards away. She was holding a Turkish flag and was not near the five or so Palestinian youths throwing rocks, the witnesses said.


After Holton, Henochowicz went to the Cooper Union School of Art in New York. There, for the first time, she began to question some of Israel's practices. "When there was a bombing in Gaza a year and a half ago, I was really shocked, because I really didn't think Israel would do something like that," she said.

Those concerns solidified when she witnessed the demonstration in the Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood in East Jerusalem. A group of Hasidic Jews shouted prayers at Palestinian children in an aggressive way that offended Henochowicz.

"The settlers started using prayers, some of which I recognized, to taunt these children," she said. "It's not what you've been taught all the time about what the Jewish people are about, what Israel's all about."


Back home, her father, Stuart Henochowicz, was upset.

"I really did have a hard time telling my family what I was doing. My dad did react with the kind of usual, 'My parents are Holocaust survivors and this is an insult to me,' " Henochowicz said.

However, he's been supportive since the injury.

"After he did some research and after what happened to me, he's really changed his mind about what Israel's doing right now," Henochowicz said. "I think he and the rest of my family . . . really see what I was doing was out of a desire for peace."

Me again.

Here's a link to a video. It's from a Turkish news agency and it appears to show Israeli soldiers first kicking a person who's already down and then executing him (purportedly the Turkish American kid) with assault rifle fire to the head. Research it, see what you think: Apparent execution by Israeli soldiers on board the Mavi Marmara.

Ask about Obama's past...and you are accused of being a birther. We need to embrace the term birther and keep asking questions. Gibbs is a liar.

"I've seen the real birth certificate. I put it on the Internet," Gibbs shot back."

So Gibbs put the certification image on the internet?


It was interesting, Janet, how swiftly Gibbs pivoted and instead of addressing the Social Security Number, instead addressed the "birther" conspiracy.


...and they never answer the question at hand. "What was the name of the woman Obama lived with at Columbia?"..."You are a birther!...how dare you ask questions!".


Pivoted...that is a good description.

Dave (in MA)

So the MA delegation is split on limiting CO²?

There's one way that I can think of that Kerry can still help:

--Research it, see what you think:--

I think your characterization of it is bizarre.
At no time can we see who or what, if anything, is being kicked.
It is not apparent to me the rifle is even fired. There is no flash even though it's night, I can't hear any reports over the blabbering commentary and there are no ejected casings visible.
There are several obvious edits so we have no idea whether who or what, if anything, was being kicked is even there anymore even if the gun was fired.

Back to shunning but I felt the urge to comment, as this was pretty lame even by anduril's low standards.


My characterization was that "it appears to show..."

I believe I hear the report of a shot. The muzzle is below the level of the railing. Although the person is not visible, the body language of the soldiers shows obvious kicking motions.

BTW, the point of my post re Emily again was: look at what kind of people and families Israel is alienating.


It's curious how this supposed anti Islamist ends up on the side of the Perdana movement with Malathir and co, with the IHIH which associates itself with Hamas, a group that even Fethi Gullen, no moderate he, felt upset in defending. It's as if there was some subtext that ties all these strands together



Another great story at your LUN link to ">http://wattsupwiththat.com/2010/06/10/climate-craziness-of-the-week-cool-e-motional-icebergs/#more-20362"> Watts Up With That.

I have no idea who funds the WWF (World Wildlife Fund) but whoever does, I find it idiotic that part of those funds are being spent to create and place sculptures on icebergs in the Arctic.

Another story well worth a read from a site that continually seems to pump out great stories about AGW idiocy.

Keep 'em coming Kim.


I thought I read recently that WWF is getting a lot of federal$$, daddy.

Apparently Lindsey Graham has not only dropped out of the cap and trade bill he co-authored with Kerry, but now says the entire AGW thing is rather a scam.


I linked from WAtts and I came across this, including this unique name of the British codominium, in the LUN


Well how about that. He's not even running this year. Must be some other ulterior motive.


Maybe it was commented on already, but this is interesting.

Experts Say White House 'Misrepresented' Views to Justify Drilling Moratorium

The seven experts who advised President Obama
on how to deal with offshore drilling safety after the Deepwater Horizon explosion are accusing his administration of misrepresenting their views to make it appear that they supported a six-month drilling moratorium -- something they actually oppose.
All seven are willing to call Obama out?


'New York Times' Bans the Word 'Tweet'


I'm not a Romney fan, but this is good.

Romney: Obama is no leader

Has it come to this again? The president is meeting with his oil spill experts, he crudely tells us, so that he knows “whose ass to kick.” We have become accustomed to his management style — target a scapegoat, assign blame and go on the attack. To win health care legislation, he vilified insurance executives; to escape bankruptcy law for General Motors, he demonized senior lenders; to take the focus from the excesses of government, he castigated business meetings in Las Vegas; and to deflect responsibility for the deepening and lengthening downturn, he blames Wall Street and George W. Bush. But what may make good politics does not make good leadership. And when a crisis is upon us, America wants a leader, not a politician.

We saw leadership on Sept. 11, 2001. Then as now, black billows seemed to come from the center of the earth. Lives had been lost. The environmental impact was immeasurable. The looming economic impact from lost tourism was incalculable. Into the crisis walked Rudy Giuliani. While that was an incomparable human tragedy, how the mayor led New York City to recover is a useful model for the president.

Did I err in passing up the RomneyGiuliani2012 domain?


'Follow the Islamic way to save the world,' Prince Charles urges environmentalists

Charles, who is a practising Christian and will become the head of the Church of England when [not if?] he succeeds to the throne, spoke in depth about his own study of the Koran which, he said, tells its followers that there is 'no separation between man and nature' and says we must always live within our environment's limits.
His mother gets smarter every day.

He's like the parody of a Python sketch, to wit, the Idiot sketch


This is the sort of stuff that drives me crazy.

We just had Begich do this horrible vote on Lisa's EPA Bill, which will unquestionably destroy future jobs in Alaska and America, further cripple our economy, and massively increase the size of Government.

So 1 and 1 half hour into Fagan's Show and has he mentioned it yet?

Maybe for the opening 2 minutes. After that it has been nothing but busting the chops of our current Governor for the next 1 hour 28 minutes, and its continuing. The Parnell bashing in this case is deserved---political appointment scandal ala Blego but pretty small potato stuff in the big picture, and easily something that could have waited for a day or two, or at least until hour 2.

On a day when one of the worst votes ever cast by an Alaskan Senator was cast which will directly destroy our Alaskan Economy, and when people are angry about it and need it hammered home over an over and over again, instead we get "Parnell and the Sarah Palin crowd" bashing.

And come November, Fagan, the guy with the biggest 3 hour soapbox in the state, is going to once again be wondering where the heck are the voters who ought to be educated and angry and out here voting.

Begich was just given a pass by Fagan because on this momentously sad day when Lisa fought her butt off on the Senate floor trying to save the Republic, Dan deems it more important to hammer the Palinites. Arghhhhhh!


Saw that Prince Charlie story Ext and couldn't finish it I was so sick to my stomach.

At least the comments are ripping the imbecile a new one.


He strikes me as a Michael Savage type, and I really can't stand him, and he doesn't do credit to whom he's supposed to be supporting

JM Hanes

Sheesh. A new day, a new Jew thread by anduril.


How are you doing, JM


To me narciso he lacks the wisdom to know what battles to fight and when to fight them.

Nothing today is more important to Alaska than what Murkowski and Begich just did in Washington DC, and the moment to publicize that is now, but somehow he is unable to see that.

So Lisa will get no kudos this day for fighting the good fight, and Begich will reap no blame, and anyone with the slightest bit of wisdom knows that diminishes the Lisa's and strengthens the Begich's of this State and this Country.


He's from Louisiana, isn't he, surely he knows something about the impact on the oil
industry, here and there. If he was on the Democrat's payroll would he do anything differently,


He is and he does know it narciso, but I don't think he can help himself when he's got a juicy "bash Parnell/Palin" story in his lap.

What a wasted opportunity.

Apologies JOMer's for going off so much about local nonsense on this thread. Off for a bike-ride---steams coming out of my ears!


Fowler had first thought that it was Greene’s name appearing first on the ballot that could have been drawing votes.

Cecil, thanks for that account by Israel Green. I'd always heard Green had run Brown through with his Mameluke sword, I guess Green was armed with the light cavalry saber. Sounds like Brown had some fight left in him after all!


" there is apparently no vetting involved"

Yet we are told that the process to vet the candidate by the Democratic Party is all that is need to show a Democrat has been properly vetted by the Party and thus is qualified to be President. In fact, I believe that is one of the reasons given by the courts, for not allowing American citizens to challenge whether the person elected in 2008 to be President met the requirements.

Yeah a woman who has $81 million to spend on her campaign that she earned is pretty scary to Tina Brown. I mean how dare she be such a doormat?


I think Queen Elizabeth II is secretly hoping Charles has an "unfortunate" mishap before she passes so he can be skipped.


If Obama does indeed have a SSN that would normally be issued to CT residents, it really would make you wonder how and why he got it.

As far as I know, SSN's are not like lottery tickets that you can just pick up at a convenience store on a weekend break from tough classes at Columbia.

A person could easily think that Tina made it all on her own. ::snicker::
