How creepy is this?

httpv://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QTb5EFZmgbs Very creepy I’d say… Some of these kids are as young as 5. UPDATE: Take two… this time more militant

It’s the end of the world! Oh wait…

No its not. Not even close. Yea the 778 point drop in the Dow is terrible, its even the biggest point drop ever according to CNN. But that sure as heck doesn’t mean we are headed for another great depression. Consider this, while the 778 point loss is the biggest point loss in history it is only about a 7% loss. Compare that to the stock market crash of 1987 where there was a 508 point drop which accounted for a massive 22.6% loss and there was no long drawn out depression which followed that incredible crash was there? But,

Don’t they get that image is… well, everything?

Seriously. What was one of Sarah Palin’s aides thinking when they described her two day trip to Arizona in order to prepare for her upcoming showdown with Joe Biden as “Debate Camp”. The same genius also referred to Sarah Palin as “SP”, I mean come on… what is this aide thinking? Are they trying to make her look less ready to lead? When you have a candidate whose biggest criticisms are that they are too young and inexperienced how can you refer to them in such an informal way when talking to the media? If you want to refute those

The Debate… Who cares?

Well, I guess a lot of people do (Malkin even called it “a historic night“). But I don’t. And, honestly, why should I? What purpose was there in watching that boring thing? I mean, come on, what was I going to learn from last nights debate that I didn’t already know? And even for uninformed people what was there to learn last night that you couldn’t have learned in a far more accurate way from either of the campaign websites or from any number of fact checking sites? Don’t get me wrong, I love a gaffe as much as the

Congress finally gets oil drilling right, by doing nothing.

It took forever but Congress has finally caved and will not stop new drilling for off-shore oil. Good news I’d say. But, of course, as anybody who knows anything about government can tell you, there is still a mile of red tape to get through before anybody can actually go and actually drill for oil offshore. The biggest problem is in getting congress to pass a revenue sharing bill which cuts the states in on the money that drilling will enevitably bring in. Until then its doubtfull that the states will allow any drilling… But I’m hopeful. After all this

NewsBusters looks into my original Palin email scandal post. Here are their concerns and my response

Here’s the original post. And here’s NewsBuster’s concerns: I haven’t seen any evidence that the screenshot mentioned above was taken by “rubico.” It could be it was taken by the person who changed the password and informed Palin’s friend. Even if it is, rubico was likely using a proxy when he/she came in to NewsBusters so all we’d have is rubico’s proxy’s IP. We don’t know necessarily what time zone Palin had set on her Yahoo account. Could be she had set it for Alaska time which is 4 hours behind our server which is on Eastern time, could be

Palin hacker, Rubico, was on NewsBusters while taking pictures of her E-Mail

So, I guess I’m the first to look really closely at some of those screen shots the hacker, Rubico, posted on the internet. Either that or I should have done a lot more digging before posting this… Either way it seems that Rubico was looking at one of the biggest conservative blogs out there, NewsBusters. And he was looking at a specific post on NewsBusters none the less… Seems plain as day to me but you guys can judge for yourselves, keep in mind that the Rubico pictures are most likely screen shots of screen shots since I got them

An American Carol: I can’t wait

I’ve seen all the trailers and preview excerpts and my excitement only builds. And that actually surprises me since An American Carol is a conservative comedy which takes on Micheal Moore and the far-left. And nothing is more hit or miss than conservative comedy. Often more miss than hit at that. Think Half Hour News Hour… And while David Zucker made Airplane! and the Naked Gun series… he also made the last two Scary Movies But from everything I gather about the movie it actually seems like it should be hilarious. 1. The aforementioned Zucker can be hilarious and he

Campaign development of massive importance: Guy who makes Sarah Palin’s glasses likes Obama

It was important enough for CNN to spend a full web-article and a full 2 minute piece for TV. Reading through the article it seems that they performed an Olympic-sprinter-warming-up type stretch to reach their point which is crystallized in their headline: Palin’s glasses designer likes Obama Now, sure, according to their reporting that is true. But what the headline chooses to ignore, in order to seem like their is an actual story somewhere in this fluff, is that he likes Palin too. In fact he says that he is “quite right-wing”. But anyway, I’m not saying that CNN is
