A very articulate editorial on the global warming scam

Regarding the racist sow sOtomayor, I have to say, it really doesn't matter. The president is a moonbat, the vacant seat was held by a moonbat, a moonbat is going to be put in place and that moonbat is going to interpret the constitution as a moonbat would. What does it matter if the moonbat is this disgusting sow sOtotmayor or some other one? It is going to be a straight line vote for the hard left regardless of which psychopathic leftist gets installed.

This doughy hag should be viewed by the Senate Judiciary Committee exactly for what she represents to the BO administration: a racist stab at white America.

This should dawn on even the thickest of liberals, yet chances are she will not only be confirmed, but patted on the knee by our fawning, weak-headed republican representatives.
(And speaking of which, when for cat's sake will this shamnesty RINO, Lindsey Graham, ever come up for re-election?)

Fiberal, in 2014. He's getting D's and F's in his state on

Did you guys get a load of Feinstein's soundbites in these hearings? Embarassing! Pure ass-kissery. And speaking of embarrasing, what about Scumer and his "Nancy Drew novels" remarks? What a putzhead! (In the words of Al D'Amato.)

Washingtonian Head-Scratchers and Head-Bangers

The bulk of the news that’s been coming out of D.C. lately hasn’t been very positive but some stories have the redeeming kick of being entertaining even if they are bewildering head-scratchers and/or frustrating head-bangers.

Head-Scratcher Number One:

David Brooks’ Inner Thigh: So, you’re a guy having a nice sit-down dinner in the capital, maybe a cocktail or two, or three, and another guy, an unidentified Republican Senator guy, “had his hand on [your] inner thigh the whole time.”

Such was the experience of New York Times columnist, David Brooks, as told to some television interviewers. Apparently the very liberal conservative Brooks wasn’t in the least upset or annoyed at what reported as “a sexual advance.”

As PoliticsDaily’s David Knowles opines, ”Why Brooks let the senator keep his hand there for the entire dinner is a mystery. Why he described the incident on television, but then refused to name the politician, is another.”

Good points, both.

I posit a third observation: Maybe it never happened, that it was a fantasy, and Brooks is in the closet.

Maybe not coincidentally, Knowles filed the story under “Republicans. Gay Rights.”

See the giddy video here:

And the 48 year old Brooks has the nerve to call politicians “freaks?”

Head-Scratcher Number Two:

Stuart Smalley Critiques SCOTUS History:

Pretend-Senator Al Franken is such a comic! Having stolen his seat in the U.S. Senate, he made his virgin flight in that role by brilliantly observing that Sonia Sotomayor was “the most experienced Supreme Court nominee in 100 years. . . [whose] story is inspirational and one in which “all Americans should take great pride in.”

You can take the comedian out of Saturday Night Live but you can’t take SNL out of the comedian unless, that is, he was serious?

First of all, I’m not nearly as curious about a Supreme Court nominee’s “story” and life experiences as I am in her legal expertise and ability to accurately interpret the Constitution from the point of view of the Founders and not according to pressure groups, or her empathy.

Secondly, surely Smalley/Franken has heard of Judge Robert Bork, William Rehnquist, Antonin Scalia and any number of other borked and successful nominees whose experience make Sonia’s inconsequential and who believe in the sanctity of our Constitution.

No doubt he Googled Sotomayor and discovered she has served many years as an (affirmative action) Second Circuit Court Judge, in which capacity she felt she was qualified and mandated to establish public policy.

That belief in itself should be sufficient to disqualify her and reduce her very moving personal history to irrelevancy. I, too, came from a difficult South Bronx life but I believe in a strict interpetation of the Constitution so can I please be Obama’s next pick?

As for Smalley/Franken, he would love whomever Obama chose as long as he or she were a leftist and as long as he or she received the leftist imprimatur.

What a travesty.

Head-Scratcher/Head-Banger Number One:

Barbara Boxer’s Excursion into Hyperbole: She didn’t mention pestilence, incurable boils, plagues of locusts, the Black Death, Washington and New York sinking beneath the Atlantic, or China invading us, but Senator Barbara Boxer covered most other bases.

Should the Senate not pass the global warming/cooling/changing bill, she warned, we should prepare for “dire results: droughts, floods, fires, loss of species, damage to agriculture, worsening air pollution and more:”

That “more” is the really scary part. It could very well include . . .

I'm going with headbangers since liberals are simply insane. It's no mystery.

Sotomayor. Simply not high quality material. Not knowledgeable, not articulate, not able to answer a simple question with a simple answer, not scholarly, not academic, not truthful, not objective, **not able to stop whirring her eyelashes faster than the wings of a hummingbird, and just what the O`bummer is looking for in an associate and appointee.
In fact, everyone of the above applies to everyone associated with and including O`bummer (except for the eyelashes).
**This one is a personal peeve, sorry!
