After accusing the GOP of turning Capitol Hill into a "clogged toilet" Sheila Jackson Lee (D-TX) is that it was her party that was flushed in record numbers in the last election.
Standing accused of appeasing the Muslim Brotherhood Obama apologizes for the indiscretion and promises any possible perception of future support will be less ambiguous.

When your brain is trying to juggle all of the Republican choices for president, Mitt, Palin, Pawlenty, Santorum...did you make any room in that noggin for...Donald Trump?
He told the crowd (at CPAC) that he would decide by June whether or not he would enter the Republican presidential primary. Trump said the Obama administration had badly bungled almost all aspects of policy – foreign and domestic.
“The United States has become a whipping post for the rest of the world,” he said. “The world is treating us without respect -- they are not treating us properly.”
See the rest (and even a video...ooooooh) at The Note
He's right that the world has lost respect for us. For eight years the left deluded themselves into thinking that all we needed was a president that would display a humility the rest of us knew would be taken as weakness. With each passing day the right is proven to be increasingly correct about this.
But, does Donald Trump really think he'd be the one to bring it? Maybe he could be a "respect consultant."
Or Respect Czar?
Come to think of it, why even bring government into the solution when a real conservative would just use their business acumen to parlay the idea into profit...
It appears that Mubarak finally read the hieroglyphics the wall of his political sarcophagus. While this is good news for the people of Egypt, who no doubt must be happy they don't have to live under his thumb any longer, Wolverine at iOwnTheWorld provides a sober reminder.
After postulating a possible run for president Donald Trump praises Ron Paul as a "good guy" but has "zero chance" to actually be elected president without a cool, huge comb over.
Donning fake glasses and taking an oddly serious tone, Biden speculates that Mubarak may actually be physically unable to actually "step aside" as Egypt's president because his advanced age may have caused him to forget how to "walk like an Egyptian."

That the media harbors animus toward all things right of center is a secret that is guarded about as closely as
As a result, Republicans have to be better than good because even the most innocuous stuff gets taken out of context.
Being better than the Dems shouldn't be very difficult, because we ARE better than them. It's like I put it last fall.
The right isn't perfect, but we're better, and more adult than the immature left. We champion moral values because we think they're still important, and actually central to upholding the Judeo-Christian ethic the nation was founded on.
That depends on how the GOP chooses to spell out what that means to them.
This is one of the few exceptions where I really think Reagan's 11th commandment need not apply. Idiocy like what now former-Congressman Chris Lee pulled would slide if he was a Democrat, not only because the media would be biased in their coverage, but also because the left has no actual sense of morality. That's why the personal failings of the lemmings on their side of the cliff are hung on the refrigerator, cherished, and bragged about like the messy pre-school fingerpaintings they are.
Yeah, they look like utter crap, but there's no wrong way to do it anyway. So they're all actually masterpieces!
Liberals, I know you think this is a bunch of partisan bluster, and I'm only saying all of this because I'm a conservative on my high horse that- HEY! Wasn't it recently re-elected Barney Frank's boyfriend who was running a gay brothel out of Barney's pantry?

GOP Congressman Christopher Lee resigns after shirtless pictures from Craigslist surface. The outraged congressman swears the photos had been doctored, explaining he was fairly certain he wasn't wearing pants either.
Senator Jim Webb (D-VA) announced today that he will not seek a second term and his desire to "not have a life in politics" is not code for "a rematch with George Allen makes macaca my pants."

House Republicans have proposed cutting or eliminating dozens of government programs as part of a plan they say will save up to $74 billion, kicking off what is sure to be a vigorous debate on Capitol Hill over what to keep and what to slash.
The cuts are nevertheless wide-ranging. According to the proposal, Republicans want to cut the following:
-- $169 million from nuclear energy
-- $593 million from the Internal Revenue Service
-- $74 million from the FBI
-- $379 million from NASA
More at Fox News
I think the $379 million cut for NASA is supposed to be the set-aside for bribing Muslims.
Also, $169 million for nuclear energy?!? That's just whats being cut...what is the number they get now? I don't want to pry...but....how are we spending so much on energy we don't really produce?
At the risk of compromising the depth of the cuts the GOP wants to make I'd like to suggest a modest proposal to give it to me instead to fund the federal "Let Jared Retire at 30 Act."
It's a big win win win...the government is still saving some money and nuclear energy and I get millions of dollars doing nothing for the country.
I don't plan on keeping much of my tax free (did I forget to mention that?) $169 million dollars. I'm actually going to stimulate the economy with it by bribing Democrats in Congress to just vote "present" from now on.
Of course, this will need to be worked into the budget every year. But the ROI would be too good to be true.
That's not exageration by the way. Steny Hoyer says the cuts lack substance and elaborated with:
We have to be smart about cutting government spending. Democrats want to reduce spending by cutting waste and excess like government giveaways to oil companies, but Republicans are already pushing extreme measures like privatizing or making deep cuts in Social Security
Wow, now THAT was some substance! The the endings of Disney movies are less predictable than that answer.
I don't know how to be smart about cutting trillion dollar deficits, but if these idiot Dems hand us a scalpel I'm just going to use it to lobotomize them so the GOP can go back to using a chainsaw.
Then I'll get to keep my bribe money.Add a comment

George W. Bush canceled a trip to Switzerland after human rights groups pressed for the former president’s arrest on torture charges, the Guardian reports.
The Center for Constitutional Rights, an organization pressing for Bush’s arrest, says they “have no doubt he cancelled his trip to avoid our case.” Amnesty International says “an investigation would be mandatory under Switzerland’s international obligations if President Bush entered the country.” The United Israel Appeal, the group that was planning to host Bush in Geneva, says that the calls for an arrest warrant were not a factor in the former president’s decision to stay away.

Their big beef is, of course, waterboarding. Does waterboarding suck? Yeah, it does. Thats why I'm not going to do anything to deserve it.
Since "progressives" fancy themselves champions of education I'd be more than happy to accept their money to establish a school on how not to get waterboarded. Its easy. I just need enough money to cover the cost of hosting this blog post with the following pointers:
In fairness to Bush, everything is torture to these wieners. They think spanking is torture unless its part of some sex theme party titled "Prelude to Abortion."
It's a mighty lofty perch the "progressives" likes to squat on. Just recently a bunch of lefties were at a rally for a group called Common Cause and were calling for torture and death to conservative Supreme Court justices over a perceived connection to the Tea Party.
This connection by the way has been addressed and debunked by the Wall Street Journal, here.
For those keeping score, the same people who don't see the moral confusion of supporting abortion on demand, AND abolition of the death penalty...now bring you "justified" death threats to conservative judges incorrectly identified with the tea party, AND the arrest of American presidents who give terrorists modified swirlies until they divulge secrets to evil attacks that could kill thousands.
It's such a bummer that I can't expand my mind to see the shades of gray morally bankrupt "progressives" can. They should lobby Crayola to finally give them what they rightly deserve.

I know and fully understand how and why Glenn Beck has his detractors even on the Republican side of the aisle. I think he brings a lot of good stuff to the table and sees the world in a way that somebody needs to see it...I mean...how many Limbaugh clones do we really need anyway?
Since the weekend the left has been "getting the popcorn" and preparing for what they expect to be a good show as their pundits are trying to stoke the flames of a Glenn Beck/Bill Kristol feud that started over this:
But hysteria is not a sign of health. When Glenn Beck rants about the caliphate taking over the Middle East from Morocco to the Philippines, and lists (invents?) the connections between caliphate-promoters and the American left, he brings to mind no one so much as Robert Welch and the John Birch Society. He’s marginalizing himself, just as his predecessors did back in the early 1960s.
Read the entire column at The Weekly Standard
Liberals always love things they think will start a civil war in the GOP as a whole. I think they'll be disappointed in this fight.
That said, just who does Bill think it is that does the marginalizing? He's comparing Beck to a man who thought President Eisenhower was a communist! That's a far FAR cry from Beck's claim radical Islam wants to establish a Caliphate, the reasons of which are too obvious to condescend you with explanation. If you need one than you've just created a tear in the space-time continuum that can only come from being able to read after being born yesterday.
Also, maybe I have a reading disorder of some kind, I couldn't find a single argument Kristol made on the merit of Beck's position. He has practically taken a line from the liberal playbook with his "hysteria" hit and run. If anything Beck has had to say on the matter could be easily refuted it would've been nice to see Kristol devote even one sentence to that.
I've wondered, in my own weird head, how an encounter between the two would go...
By the way, Bryan Preston over at Pajamas Media had a good retort to Kristol, here.Add a comment
Biden breaks with liberals to celebrate Reagan's 100th birthday "can be a learning experience for all" after finding out ninety-ten is not a number.

This post is a little more adult than most...there's your fair warning...
For Democrats, Ashley Bell was the kind of comer that a party builds a future on: A young African American lawyer, he served as president of the College Democrats of America, advised presidential candidateJohn Edwards and spoke at the 2004 Democratic National Convention in Boston.
But after his party's midterm beat-down in November, Bell, a commissioner in northern Georgia's Hall County, jumped ship. He joined the Republicans...
"I think the midterms showed you really can't be a conservative and be a member of the Democratic Party," Bell said...
Many of the defectors have echoed Bell's assertion that Democrats have become too liberal.

I was working on something in my kitchen last night, and my wife was channel surfing and came to some "Sex and the City" rerun where Carrie was dating a guy she had nothing in common with, but she stayed with him because he provided her with "mind-blowing sex."
Unless orgasms enable people to prove the theory of relativity I don't know what "mind-blowing sex" actually is, and I was wondering why fate wasn't letting me tune out a television show that makes my brain shrivel, until reading this piece from the L.A. Times....which also makes my brain shrivel.
Dating people you barely know beyond sex sounds like the perfect recipe for a relationship with liberalism.
Carrie was like a conservative Democrat, and the party has been screwing her for decades.
It's not that Democrats have become too liberal, they've been too liberal. The party didn't just leave Reagan, it left everyone not dumb enough to be happy living in Berkeley, CA.
I know so many people whose values have nothing in common with liberalism and wouldn't even vote Democrat if they weren't born into families that taught them to vote that way...kind of like the klan, but less offensive...because I say so.
The core of the Democratic party has become socialism, liberals who deny this are either ignorant or lying...like Obama did right before the Super Bown with Bill O'Reilly.
Mr. "Spread the wealth" tells Bill he's no socialist because he's banking on people like Bell to believe he's not.
Too bad for our fearless leader that it appears conservative dems are getting tired of making excuses that sound like they're missing the punchline, "I'm not gay, but my boyfriend is."
