Incompetence or malice?

The deadline for returning ballots for Wisconsin military voters  was initially given  as a week later than it actually is.  This was shown on the Federal Voting Assistance Program website.

The ObamaPhone…

leave a comment »

If you haven’t seen the video,  there’s a link in  this article.   Of course,  His Oneness didn’t give her a free phone,  and it is anything but free,  because everyone else with a phone pays a Universal Service Charge.

The Peoples Cube is  having some fun  with it all.

Obama lies on 60 Minutes…

leave a comment »

His Oneness is delusional,  but then he knows he can go on 60 Minutes and no one will question even the most absurd of his statements,  such as he hasn’t raised taxes.   The truly troubling thing is not that Obama lies,  but that he appears to actually believe what he says.   That requires not the momentary pathology of Bill Clinton lying about his sexual freelancing,  but a sustained,  perhaps lifelong mental manipulation to overlay his will upon reality.  And that ought to frighten the hell out of all of us.

Don’t know much about U.S. history…

You’d think His Oneness would know that Lincoln’s Emancipation Proclamation freed only those slaves held in Southern states.    You’d be wrong.   You’d think his speechwriters might at least fact-check his U.N. speech.   You’d be wrong again.

Israel draws a line…

Raise your hand if you’re surprised by MSM  choosing photos of Netanyahu speaking at the U.N. which make it appear he is giving a Nazi salute.   Remember  what the  Prime Minister is concerned about.   Here are some  highlights from his speech.   If you’re pressed for time,  Charles Krauthammer summarizes  it neatly here.

Herbert Lom, R.I.P.

The wonderful  character actor  has died.   Most people knew him from his appearances in the Pink Panther movies,,  but I first saw him as a villain some time before the movies and was pleasantly surprised.

Immigrant Iranians kick ass…

leave a comment »

The spokesman for Iran’s insane president Ahmadinejad received a  much less friendly welcome on the streets of New York than his boss did at the U.N. Assembly.
