Biden Makes Fun of Obama for Teleprompter Use; UPDATE: Video Added

In a classically Biden moment our Vice President ripped on our President for his famous reliance on teleprompters. Biden delivered his joke while speaking to new Air Force graduates. From Top of the Ticket: not content to leave without a jaunty ad lib, Biden noted that heavy winds were gusting through the ceremonies. One of his two teleprompters had toppled over. Alluding to the jokes of Obama’s reliance on the speech-facilitators, Biden added, “What I am going to tell the president when I tell him his teleprompter is broken. What will he do then.” Oh boy. Please let the man

Did The History Channel Run Anti-American Ads Abroad?

That’s the question Caleb Howe is trying to figure out over at Redstate today. I’m going to link him twice to make sure that you go and read his work because it’s an example of quite remarkable reporting. Besides if you don’t read his post you won’t get the full story and you might not fully understand how I came to my conclusions. The basic summary is that the History Channel in all likelihood didn’t commission or run these anti-American ads (click to enlarge): And this anti-Christian/western ad (click to enlarge): However, the ad agency which works for the History

New Hampshire House Rejects Gay Marriage Bill

In what comes as a surprising twist the New Hampshire house has rejected a new bill which would have legalized gay marriage. Its particularly surprising not just because its well… New Hampshire but also because the house had already approved a previous bill legalizing gay marriage which was ultimately vetoed by the governor. Not to mention the fact that the New Hampshire senate had passed the new bill. Here’s how the AP described it: A divided New Hampshire House has refused to go along with changes the governor demanded to make his state the sixth to allow gay marriage. Instead,

Gingrich to Pelosi: Resign

The call comes after Pelosi vomitted her lies all over the CIA. Sure he’s gone off on her over this before and sure this is little more than grandiose political theater that will lead to nothing in the end… but it’s still fun to listen to someone give ol’ Nancy a much deserved smack down: In a column for the conservative publication Human Events, the former House Speaker takes aim at Pelosi’s press conference last week, during which she said the CIA did not tell her in 2002 that it used the aggressive interrogation technique of waterboarding. She went on

Inevitable: Vick to Work With Humane Society

It’s all part of the celebrity rehabilitation cycle. First comes the atrocious and reprehensible act, in Vick’s case dog fighting, then comes the arrest and legal punishments associated with the crime, in Vick’s case jail time and expulsion from the NFL, and finally the celebrity teams up with whatever major organization usually fights against the atrocious and reprehensible act committed by said celebrity, in Vick’s case the Humane Society. It’s just like clockwork: Michael Vick wants to work with an unlikely ally the Humane Society of the United States on a program aimed at eradicating dogfighting among urban teens. Society

Shocker: Chrysler Won’t Repay Bailout Money

There goes that cash… straight down the money pit. But, hey, what’s $7 Billion among friends. Especially nowadays: Chrysler LLC will not repay U.S. taxpayers more than $7 billion in bailout money it received earlier this year and as part of its bankruptcy filing. This revelation was buried within Chrysler’s bankruptcy filings last week and confirmed by the Obama administration Tuesday. The filings included a list of business assumptions from one of the company’s key financial advisors in the bankruptcy case. Now, a pessimist might say that the bailout money has gone down the black hole that these failing companies
