Yeah, That'll Work, Barry

After all, the strategy worked exceedingly well for President Perry and President Gingrich and President Santorum and President Huntsman and President Cain and President Bachmann and ...

Obama is going to jump ugly on Mitt Romney.

What a stratagem!

Did someone actually get paid to come up with that eye-opening contrivance?

Up From The Grave ...

Ya gotta love "experts."  Remember this declaration from a few days ago?

The Republicans’ problem is their voters are white, aging and dying off.”

Followed this morning with this news, which is part of a trend:

"Former Alabama Rep. Artur Davis announced Tuesday that he’s cutting ties with the Democratic Party, and said that he’s considering a future bid for Congress as a Republican."

So you know, Artur Davis is young, black, and very much alive.

Ah, experts.

The I.Q. Pool In Congress Just Rose

"Asked to describe the Lebanese militant group Hezbollah, according to a story published online, Reyes responded 'Hezbollah. Uh, Hezbollah' and then said, 'Why do you ask me these questions at 5 o'clock?'"

That's a rather famous quote from - now get this - the man who the Democrats chose to chair the House ... Intelligence ... Committee when Pelosi took over in 2006.

Well, Pelosi, the Democratic Party, the United States of America, indeed the entire free world are seeing a brighter tomorrow today.

Silvestre Reyes has been bounced from office.

 Internet Regulation Returns to the International Agenda

Swell.  A commisar to oversee my weblog musings.

So why does the internet need regulating?

There's but one - and only one - answer:

It's what they do.

Time to wheel the old gal back into her room:

Barbara Walters Pushes Michelle Obama to Run for Office: 'You'd Be a Very Popular Candidate'

I'd ask what qualifies the president's wife to be anything other than a wife, but then I'd be launching a conversation with a batty old lady who ought to be back in the home eating her porridge and watching "Days of Our Lives."  With bib properly affixed and trained nursing staff at the ready.

Michelle Obama the political candidate.  All is lost.  All is lost.

Obama Finds Out Words Have Meaning

Touchy. Touchy.

Our president is on trouble, it seems, for having constructed a sentence poorly. Well, not really poorly. Just not to the Polish government's liking.

This, it seems to me, is petty:
Obama 'misspoke' over Nazi death camp says White House
Yahoo News

The White House tried to head off a diplomatic spat with Poland after President Barack Obama mistakenly called a Nazi facility used to process Jews for execution as a "Polish death camp."

The linguistic faux pas overshadowed Obama's posthumous award of America's highest civilian honor, the Presidential Medal of Freedom, to Jan Karski, a former Polish underground officer who provided early eyewitness accounts of the Nazi purge against Jews.

"Before one trip across enemy lines, resistance fighters told him that Jews were being murdered on a massive scale, and smuggled him into the Warsaw Ghetto and a Polish death camp to see for himself," Obama said.

The Polish government keenly watches the global media for descriptions of former concentration camps as "Polish" because it says the term -- even if used simply as a geographical indicator -- can give the impression that Poland bore responsibility for Nazi Germany's World War II genocide.

Tommy Vietor, a spokesman for Obama's National Security Council, said that the president "misspoke."

"He was referring to Nazi death camps in Poland. [link]
That's the sort of laziness that gets a politician in trouble.

But gimme a break.  Aren't we splitting hairs here?

It's worth noting that there's a good reason why the Polish government is sensitive to such talk.  Though it had nothing to do with the establishment of the extermination program there in the 40's that, for all intents and purposes, wiped out Poland's Jewish population, little was done at the end of World War II to return confiscated property to the heirs of the rightful owners.  To this day, the squatters still have possession of thousands of pieces of real estate that had been owned by Jews sent to Treblika and Sobibor and Majdenek and Belzek and Auschwitz, never to be seen again.  It's worth noting, too, that there were no "Poles" who made that journey into extinction.  So there's more than a little bit of a sense of guilt involved here.

Still, the Polish government needs to get a life.  Yeah, Obama got his adjective wrong.  Get over it.

Priest Caught Molesting Underage Boy

Oh.  Wait.  It wasn't a priest.  It was a public school teacher.  Another one.

Doesn't fit the narrative.

So never mind.
