Morning Briefs: Stuff You've Probably Already Read Somewhere Else
Item Number One: If the "War on Christmas" is something Bill O'Reilly just made up (as leftists claim), then how come the National Forest Service bans "religious themes" from Christmas ornaments made by schoolchildren for the National Christmas Tree? And by the way, if they are determined to sanitize the National Christmas Tree of any religious significance, shouldn't they call it just the National Tree of No Religious Significance? (Gateway Pundit On a tip from American to the Core)
Item Number Two: Some of Roman Polanski's apologists have claimed he should get a pass, not just because he's a "brilliant" director and as such should be able to drug and sodomize all the children he wants to, but because he only raped one child, and it's not like he was a serial rapist. Oh, except that it turns he was a serial creep who was always chasing jailbait. (Big Hollywood)
Item Number Three: And on that note, Anne Applebaum is still making herself look like a Cupid Stunt. (Hat Tip: Patterico via AoSHQ)
Item Number Four: David Letterman admits to being a creepy old lecher. Apparently, women who work under him are really expected to work under him. Sarah Palin showed her smarts by not bringing her daughters on his show. (Hat Tip: Knowledge Is Power)
Item Number Five: Nile Gardiner has listed Obama's Five Most Embarrassing Speeches. Considering his primary criteria are speeches in which Obama makes himself look arrogant while making America look weak, it must have been tough to narrow it to just five. (Hat Tip: Knowledge Is Power)

Instilling guilt in cats? Now there's a bit a research I could get behind!

We're all cats now!

Letterman is a scumbag, but I will give him props for speaking up about it in public.
Of course, the only reason he did is because of the extortion.
OK, I take them props back.

Perverted jerk though Letterman is, at least in this situation, he did the smart thing by coming forward with his affairs, so that his blackmailer thus had no power over him.

I dont like cats to begin with (they climb all over everything, use flower beds as litter boxes and destroy things) and now I know why cats are evil!
Dogs are ok as long as they arent Pit Bulls.

Not a speech by the 0, just a statement, but it shows his grasp of the really significant events of the 20th Century:
Obama released a statement regarding Mahatma Gandhi’s birthday. In the statement, Obama says, “Americans owe an enormous measure of gratitude to the Mahatma. His teachings and ideals, shared with Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. on his 1959 pilgrimage to India, transformed American society through our civil rights movement.”
There’s just one problem.
Mahatma Gandhi was assassinated in 1948.

First: Letterman is a bottom feeding scumsucker! He did not deserve threats being made against his family and his young son. Lucky for all that turned out okay and didn't become a Lindberg baby nightmare. He almost died when he had heart problems, he survived. I feel sorry for his mom and his family. But he made his bed and he has to sleep in it (so to speak). I used to like Letterman, but he jumped the shark long ago. His mom must be proud of her dirty old man of a son. Why do people even bother going to or watching his TV program?
Second:Roman Polanski, yet another dirty old man. If he were allowed to set foot in the United States, Letterdick would invite him to be a guest on his show.
Third:Christmas trees. What is is about Christmas trees that offend moonbats? In Basalt, Colorado (about 12 miles from Planet Aspen) the Christmas tree in town is called the "Peace Tree."
Fourth: My cat is not racist!

Hey, conflict here; one of my cats is a lesbian (of the butch type) how could she possibly be a racist?

Those bastards copied my graphic. They even used a cat "who looks like Hitler" that was linked at my article.
Here's mine. Note, they copied ME, not the other war around.

U[pNorth, Obama refers to Gandhi's "teachings and ideals" being shared with King on his 1959 visit to India. That's what happened.
King said, prior to his visit: "…my true test would come when the people who knew Gandhi looked me over and passed judgment upon me and the Montgomery movement."

Funny I don't remember Ghandi giving a speech saying that the US was spending $67 million a month on the Vietnam war and that black people should get the same amount. Hmmmm....

I don't know folks think about this. Cats aren't near as good at guarding a crack house as say a pitbull. My cats can't be racist one's black,one's gray and the other is a heinz 57. That means I'm multicultural!!!!! Oh I feel so free. sarc.off. :)

Plagiarism...the sincerest form of flattery! Thanks People's Cube!

I thought Letterman was a cartoon character on The Electric Company.You know:
Faster than a rolling O
Stronger than silent E, able to leap capital T in a single bound...
It's a word. It's a plan. It's LETTERMAN!
