Chavez: Obama has ‘Same Stench’ as Bush

Fox reports: Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez apparently doesn’t appreciate Barack Obama’s classifying him as a supporter of the Colombian terror group, FARC, likening the president-elect’s odor to that of Chavez’s nemesis, President Bush. In an interview airing on Venezuelan television and reported by The Washington Post Monday, Chavez said Obama has “the same stench” as Bush. The comment harkens back to September 2006, when Chavez addressed the United Nations General Assembly after Bush and said he could still smell the “sulfur” the U.S. president left behind at the podium. I’m not worried though, once our savior descends to Venezuela to meet

Obama Aide: Don’t ask Don’t Tell Must Wait

So much for that campaign promise: In an overlooked YouTube video posted on Friday, a spokesman for Barack Obama said the president-elect is committed to ending the policy that bars openly gay men and women from serving in the U.S. armed forces. […] Gibbs on Wednesday expanded on his answer, saying, “There are many challenges facing our nation now and the president-elect is focused first and foremost on jump-starting this economy. “So not everything will get done in the beginning but he’s committed to following through” with ending the policy against being openly gay in the military. In other words,

Bush Declares Emergency in DC for Inauguration

They only do this preemptively in the case of hurricanes. What the heck is going on here? I mean their first estimates for how many people would be there was an absurd 5 million. Now its down to 1.5 to 2 million which still sounds like an over estimation. I don’t know, it feels like the Bush administration is just buying into the inauguration hype. But I guess its better safe than sorry:

Bobblehead Barack

Come on… will the merchandising ever end? I mean how can I be expected to take this “monumental achievement” when its being cheapened to the level of the snuggie. I mean sure this time Obama’s people weren’t the ones behind the cornyness, it was a minor league baseball team from Brooklyn or “Baraklyn“, but they’ve sponsored their own crap fests as well. I swear the genius who came up with this promotion is a political satire savant. Just check out the full package:

North Korea Wants Ticket to Obama Inauguration

Yup, they want to send their chief nuclear envoy to witness the coronation inauguration of Obama. They were even extra super nice in asking and refrained from their usual US-bashing crap. If the Associated Press is right about these bad guys (who are really just misunderstood good guys) then maybe they’ve turned of a new, less murderous, leaf: The North’s move, if confirmed, would be another sign the regime is eager to forge good relations with the next U.S. administration. But, gee-golly, call me a skeptic cause I just ain’t buying the happy face routine. Though it looks like we

Check Out These Debates

Opposing Views has some very interesting debates on a lot of important issues. They get experts from both sides to make their respective arguments. They actually do the job that higher education should do… but I guess that’s for another time. Here are some of the best debates I’ve seen and my quick answers to the questions they debate:

Illinois House May Vote on Blago Impeachment Next Week

According to the Associated Press: The Illinois House could vote as early as next week on whether to impeach Gov. Rod Blagojevich. The Illinois House has bumped up its schedule and will meet several days next week. They had been set to reconvene on Jan. 12. This comes as a little bit of a shock to me. After they showed no political back bone a couple weeks back I figured they would never actually vote to impeach Blagojevich. Maybe the Burris appointment and the circus that followed it has made them think twice? But I still doubt this will come

Obama’s Internal Investigation Will Be Used to Help… Blagojevich?

That’s what Blago’s lawyer is hoping anyway… But I think Obama’s interal investigation will do about as much to exonerate Blagojevich as it did to exonerate Obama’s staff. After all, how credible can any investigation into one’s (or the one’s) own guilt be? P.S. Hello to everybody from the Conservative Grapevine!
