yeah,  a blue moon.   Mother Nature is  obliging for  astronaut Neil Armstrong’s funeral.  Do as his family suggests and go out tonight and wink at the moon.

Bureaucratic insanity…

There’s plenty of it to go around,  but  this wins the award  for the most lethally  idiotic,  hysterical, politically correct claptrap EVER!

The gun is always loaded…

and the microphone is always live…something the  Yahoo! bureau  chief should have remembered.   But this should instruct you as to why conservatives get no breaks from the media —  this is what they really think of us.

Irony in wind and water…

How ironic that just a day after the  venerable Times-Picayune newspaper,  which did such heroic reporting during Hurricane Katrina when it devastated New Orleans,  announced it was no longer printing an edition daily,  Hurricane  Isaac should  come calling on Cajun country.

Christie lit it up…

Gov. Chris Christie gave the best convention address I’ve ever heard.  If you didn’t watch it live, you missed a treat,  but you can read  the text here,  courtesy of The Drudge Report.   It was a big-ball speech,  a serious one full of challenge and opportunity.

Former Rep. Arthur Davis gave  another significant  speech,  in which he laid bare the failures of His Oneness,  and candidate Mia Love  richly deserved  the applause she received.

You might also enjoy Lt. Governor candidate Sher Valenzuel’s speech,  here,  and Gov. Scott Walker’s,  here,  and certainly candidate Ted Cruz’s,  here.

This site has  videos of all the speeches.  (h/t Lucianne.com)

Blowhard Joe not coming, but Code Pink is…

leave a comment »

I was so looking forward to watching Joe Biden  shoot off his mouth  before engaging his brain,  but Tropical Storm Isaac has frightened him off.

Of course,  it may be because no less than Rep. Charlie Rangel has agreed that the Vice President meant  exactly what everyone  thought he meant with his  “put y’all back in chains”  remark.

But cheer up  — the  tasteless Code Pink group  is already scurrying about looking for Republican convention attendees and other decent people to offend.   They’re  about the  only protesters there.
