Happy birthday, Maybee

I didn't hear that, Captain, but Rush isn't very good with opposition callers - as in fast-on-his-feet debating skills - even though he seems to think he is.

Agreed. It's even worse when the facts are against him.

If I understand you correctly, you're essentially saying that the only way for the Democrats to survive is to stop acting like Democrats. I think you’re correct. However, in the perishingly unlikely chance the top Democratic brass were ever to try such a crazy stunt, they'd be removed by their base before they could pull it off. And it wouldn't be pretty.

A *MUCH* more entertaining example of this same principle in action was illustrated a few years ago by the Doctor Who episode "Evolution of the Daleks" (still in reruns). I just don't foresee Obama attempting to pull of a party direction change analogous to what the hybrid Human-Dalek leader "Dalek Sec" failed to do. And the Doctor didn’t stop Dalek Sec – it was exterminated by its followers. Case in point.

Thanks, BBC, for the odd object lesson! Are you calling us pig-slaves?

Thanks for that Atlas Shrugged link Rocco. Well worth reading.

Especially this part.

--When Obama mentioned the “Isra” event, he referred to Muhammad’s ascension to heaven and his return in one night on a winged mule named Buraq.

I always get a kick out of rereading that the progenitor of the mohammadens came to town riding an ass named Burak.
Besides the comic aspects of the alleged episode the way it illuminates the way muhammadens think is very valuable. There is no mention of Jerusalem in the Koran but when they wished to establish a claim upon the city they came up with the taqiyya myth that muhhamad took his trip to heaven from the Temple Mount and so we have the Dome of the Rock; muslims raising their leg on someone else's property.....again.

According to Will Durant and others, when Muhamed first had the followers praying in a particular direction, the direction they pointed at was Jerusalem. For instance, from Wiki ">http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mizrah"> In Islam, the original direction of prayer (qibla) was toward Jerusalem; however, Muhammad subsequently changed it to Mecca.

5 Years later, after successfully expanding from Yathrib (Medina) he changed the direction of the prayer rugs towards Mecca.

Years ago visited the Dome of the Rock in Jerusalem and inside some tour guide pointed to some spot on this big rock and said "that is where believers think he placed his foot after which he zipped up to Paradise." Looked like a rock to me.

Ignatz

daddy,
You probably already know that rock was believed by the Jews to be the spot where Abraham was asked to sacrifice Isaac; the same Abraham whom the muslims claim was actually asked to sacrifice Ishmael, Abe's illegitimate son and the supposed father of the Arabs.
So it's a perfect demonstration of the way muslims mark their claimed territory by purposely pissing on other's most sacred properties with phony claims purposely intended to outrage and deligitimize.

daddy

Absolutely correct Ignatz.

Cordoba Masking all over again.

He left it on his prayer rug.

""that is where believers think he (Mohamed) placed his foot after which he zipped up to Paradise."

daddy, wasn't the zipper invented, or at least patented, *much* later?

Threadkiller

Frau,

Mohamed proclaimed: "Knoph is knoph" and that is why he zipped away.

Wookies the nation 'round are storming their embassies looking for an apology. Otherwise, they will burn a Koran and blame it on Bush.
