People who say it cannot be done should not interrupt those who are doing it. Welcome to From On High.

Someone should volunteer to break the news to these bimbos-for-Obama that the people the assembled masses at the Democratic convention despise the most are them.

See "Democrats trotting out [wealthy] Hollywood beauties to introduce President Obama tonight."

I'm sure these geniuses will tell you they aren't really "rich," per se.  They just have a lot of accumulated wealth that they intend to use to great good.  Some day.

Lambs.  Slaughter.  Bliss.


You're Half Right, Michelle

This from Michelle Obama in her speech the other night seems so right:

"For Barack, success isn’t about how much money you make, it’s about the differences you make in people’s lives.”

Two points, though:

1) How do we measure that "difference" her husband has made in peoples' lives?  Answer: How about we ask his brother:

2) How much countenance should we give to the claim that a man who has chosen to not lift a finger to help his own brother has, at the same time, chosen to help millions of total strangers with money that doesn't belong to him?  I can be real magnanimous too with other people's cash.

Obama has "made a difference" for certain.  And millions of Americans are the poorer for it.

Michelle Obama got this right: "Success is ... about the differences you make in people’s lives."

So many of our fellow citizens have lives so different from what they were a few short years ago.

Four more years of his compassion?  Where will those differences take us?

Why Gov't Is Failing Us

Stupid people are making the decisions:

"Democrat Representative tells Colbert slavery persisted in Brooklyn until 1898."

She's "pretty sure" it did, anyway.


Yet not.

When Obama Opens His Mouth This Evening ...

... shoulder past all the rah rah and media adulation.  And ask yourself:

Is he saying anything that he didn't say four long years ago?

He promised hope.  We got longer unemployment lines.

And now, tonight, he's going to promise more hope.

What will the next four years bring other than more of the same?

On Bill Clinton's Speech Last Night

(Which I missed because I got home too late from work.)

Ben Stein watched and reports:
This cracker snake oil salesman, as my pal John Coyne calls him, immediately began to lecture the Republicans about how immoral they are. Yes!!!! This man, who had a college intern give him oral sex in the Oval Office while he was on the phone with a Congressional Committee Chair, who inserted cigars into this woman's private parts in the Oval Office, then smoked them, then lied about it all, who was impeached, is lecturing the GOP about morality.

It is art.

This man, credibly accused of something very like sexual assault, is cheered to the rafters by the women at the DNC. It is fantastic. This is not grist for the political analyst. It is grist for the psychoanalyst.
In the "War on Women," women's Enemy Number One should be the only president of the United States who has ever been accused of rape. But to Democratic women? Hey, what's a few rapes among like-minded soldiers in the ... war ... on ... women ...?

Oh. Wait. I'm reminded that Bill Clinton should probably be Enemy Number Two in the War on Women.

Number One? Mary Jo Kopechne's chauffeur:

In the Democrats' universe, it all makes perfect sense.

Four More Years! Four More Years!

May God have mercy on us:

"It was increasingly clear that no one was running Washington. That was trouble for everyone, but especially for Obama."

Tell me again why it is we need Washington then?

The KKK In Different Skin

Didn't the media (rightly) despise David Duke for this?

"Once you vote black, you never go back."

The media response?

Hello?  Hello?  Anyone there?

Tim Kaine Speaks; Nobody Listens

As you may recall, he had to be talked into running against George Allen in the current Senate campaign.  He really didn't want to do it.

So now he has to go to Charlotte and give a speech to the assembled Democrat delegates and make his strident pitch for a job he has no interest in.

What happened?


He delivered his lackluster speech.  No one paid attention.  He went off to get a hot dog.

You can look for his speech on YouTube.  But you won't find it.  Too much of a bother to upload, obviously.

So why is he bothering to run for the Senate?

Obama Gets His Wish

"What I've said is that we would put a cap and trade system in place that is as aggressive, if not more aggressive, than anybody else's out there.

"So if somebody wants to build a coal-powered plant, they can; it's just that it will bankrupt them because they're going to be charged a huge sum for all that greenhouse gas that's being emitted.

"That will also generate billions of dollars that we can invest in solar, wind, biodiesel and other alternative energy approaches."
-- Barack Obama -- January 17, 2008 --

He gets his wish.

At least 600 Southwest Virginians are being put out of work. Probably forever.

Meanwhile, the party in Charlotte continues.

Such a Big Tent

Christian or Jew?  There's no place for you in the Democratic Party.

The matter was put to a vote at the convention.  And you lost.

Watch this.  It's shameful beyond words:

The fact that it required that the convention chairman ignore the majority vote speaks volumes about how radical the Democratic Party has become.

See "Boos as Dems vote to recognize God and Jerusalem in party platform."

And they claim Republicans are out of touch?


"It was the worst blunder in a scripted TV event in recent memory.


Debbie Wasserman Schultz At It Again

What's with this woman?

CNN Mocks Debbie Wasserman Schultz's Lame Spin on God and Jerusalem Platform Controversy

As that saying goes, are you going to believe your lying eyes or are you going to believe me?

The chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee has become the butt of jokes.  At the Democratic National Convention, no less.

For entertainment value, can it get any better?

Well, it may.

As everyone knows, the Obama campaign counted heads and decided that his BIG speech this evening was going to prove to be really embarrassing when he speaks to a half-empty Panthers stadium.  So ... because of impending weather ... ahem ... they've moved his speech indoors to an auditorium with a drastically reduced seating capacity.

And now that meteorologists are forecasting wonderful weather at the very time Democrats have predicted storms and pestilence?

Expect Debbie Decepticon to tell the world tomorrow morning that it was, in fact, raining cats and dogs outside while Obama was speaking indoors.  YouTube video be damned.  And shut up.

Well, Shucks

Just when the Democratic convention was getting interesting:

"DNC's Wasserman Schultz, Gaspard cancel interviews amid platform debacle."

Good for the Democrats.

Bad for Comedy Central.

Maybe We Should All Join The Party

It's getting to be such a pain in the ass working so hard so that others don't have to:

Puzzle parties.  For people who don't work who can take advantage of the tax money that the government takes from me at the point of a gun.

Somethin' ain't right.
