NBC's Chuck Todd: Obama's golf game just an excuse to smoke

NBC White House correspondent Chuck Todd speculates that President Obama is using golf as just an excuse to sneak out and enjoy a few cigarettes. Truth is he's a better smoker than golfer.

The realities of Obamacare

An extremely accurate portrayal of how healthcare will look if ran by the U.S. government.


Video of Gov. Mark Sanford's mistress surfaces

Kid From Brooklyn has uncovered this video of Maria Belen Chapur, Gov. Sanford's other woman, doing 9/11 coverage.

KFB writes of her:
The Kid is back, doing the work that serious bloggers don’t have the time to do (I’d rather have the Cap’n covering the Obama Failfest, wouldn’t you?). Quick cliff-note translation: Champur is covering NYC post 9-11. She discussed the smell of death still lingering over Lower Manhattan, the patriotic displays, cleanup efforts at Ground Zero, fear of bioattacks (anthrax), and New York’s gradual return to everyday life (noting that, once again, The Producers was sold out). She was very “just-the-facts”. The anchor felt the need to apologize for Islam vis-a-vis the terrorists, but even that was very brief, unlike what we saw here. Just sayin’, she looks a LOT like Mrs. S. here.

Sen. John Kerry jokes that he wishes Gov. Palin would end up missing

The sick humor of the liberal left continues. If it isn't David Letterman making jokes about 14-year old Willow being raped in public, then it's Sen. John Kerry (D-MA) wishing that if any governor were to disappear and be missing then why couldn't it have been Sarah Palin. I wonder what kind of missing he was referring too. Was he referring to the Gov. Sanford kind of "missing", or the Jimmy Hoffa kind of "missing"?

From the Boston Herald:
WASHINGTON – U.S. Sen. John Kerry must have been channeling his inner Letterman yesterday.

The Bay State senator was telling a group of business and civic leaders in town at his invitation about the “bizarre’’ tale of how South Carolina Gov. Mark Sanford had “disappeared for four days’’ and claimed to be hiking along the Appalachian Trail, but no one was really certain of his whereabouts.

“Too bad,’’ Kerry said, “if a governor had to go missing it couldn’t have been the governor of Alaska. You know, Sarah Palin.’’

The Democratic-centric crowd laughed.

And if that weren't bad enough, now liberal bloggers feel that Gov. Palins special-needs child Trig is a legitimate target for ridicule.

Only a sick individual, with a sick mind, belonging to a sick political ideology, could make fun of a baby with down syndrome.

Stay classy liberals!

Michelle plants vegetables, Obama plants questions UPDATE: Nico Pitney denies it was staged

Welcome to the political version of "Green Acres". In this re-make of a classic television show Michelle Obama plants tasty vegetables in the White House lawn and President Obama plants his own questions in a White House press conference.

Reports are starting to come out that President Obama planted a question yesterday during his White House press conference by calling upon Nico Pitney of the Huffington Post with a question about the Iranian elections. Here's how the whole staged event went down.

Dana Milbank of the Washington Post was not the least bit happy about this attempt of staged phoniness:
After the obligatory first question from the Associated Press, Obama treated the overflowing White House briefing room to a surprise. “I know Nico Pitney is here from the Huffington Post,” he announced.

Obama knew this because White House aides had called Pitney the day before to invite him, and they had escorted him into the room. They told him the president was likely to call on him, with the understanding that he would ask a question about Iran that had been submitted online by an Iranian. “I know that there may actually be questions from people in Iran who are communicating through the Internet,” Obama went on. “Do you have a question?”

Pitney recognized his prompt. “That’s right,” he said, standing in the aisle and wearing a temporary White House press pass. “I wanted to use this opportunity to ask you a question directly from an Iranian.”

Pitney asked his arranged question. Reporters looked at one another in amazement at the stagecraft they were witnessing. White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel grinned at the surprised TV correspondents in the first row.

The use of planted questioners is a no-no at presidential news conferences, because it sends a message to the world — Iran included — that the American press isn’t as free as advertised. But yesterday wasn’t so much a news conference as it was a taping of a new daytime drama, “The Obama Show.”

Will the White House press corps ever get tired of being used like this? They have been used as a weapon to silence those who try to oppose Obama's will, and now they have been used as a venue to plant phony questions. When will they realize that Obama has no respect for them and put down there pom-poms and megaphones and pick up there pads and pens? Take off there cheer leading outfits and put on there coats and ties and get back to the work of serious journalism?

UPDATE: Nico Pitney denies that it was a planted question:

President Obama still enjoys his cancer sticks

Do you think that ABC News will ask him tomorrow during his all day long Obamacare infomercial as to how much his filthy habit is causing the cost of health care to skyrocket? Honestly folks, what business is it of Obama to lecture us about anything related to health care when he admits that he still practices a habit that is the leading cause of death in America?

I'm not condemning President Obama his right to light up and enjoy a perfectly legal product. But he is being extremely hypocritical in lecturing the rest of the American public about how our bad health habits are driving up the cost of health care when he has a few bad habits himself.

Obama to Ahmadinejad: Take July 4th off from beating and killing and party with us

President Obama's State Dept. reiterated there desire to still invite Iranian diplomats over to all U.S. embassies around the world for 4th of July celebrations.
WASHINGTON (AFP) — The United States said Monday its invitations were still standing for Iranian diplomats to attend July 4 celebrations at US embassies despite the crackdown on opposition supporters.

President Barack Obama's administration said earlier this month it would invite Iran to US embassy barbecues for the national holiday for the first time since the two nations severed relations following the 1979 Islamic revolution.

"There's no thought to rescinding the invitations to Iranian diplomats," State Department spokesman Ian Kelly told reporters.

"We have made a strategic decision to engage on a number of fronts with Iran," Kelly said. "We tried many years of isolation, and we're pursuing a different path now."

Liberal media has orgasm over Obama killing a fly

All three of the liberal mainstream media morning shows (ABC, NBC, and CBS) were just having a collective orgasm this morning over President Obama killing a fly yesterday during an interview on CNBC. NewsBusters has compiled a video montage of this sickening slobbering over the man that ABC has sold out too. Wouldn't you have an orgasm too if you learned that your President is the karate kid?

Terrorists attempt to kill Jimmy Carter after he just made love to them

Officially the worst President in our nations history (no matter what the left tries to tell you about George W. Bush) has just finished his apology tour over in Gaza. While there he condemned America, he condemned Israel, he claimed that Hamas "wants peace", and then he asked the Obama State Department to remove Hamas from it's list of states sponsoring terrorism. Then after apologizing and making love to all these terrorists, he gets word from the Israelis (who he just condemned) that there was a plot to blow up his convoy of cars while leaving.

Pathetic performance by the most embarrassing President of all time.

Smarter than Bush? ... 06/15/09

CBS News (of all places) is reporting a recent gaffe that was made by President Obama. It appears that the man who the media is telling us is the most brilliant President in our nations history doesn't even know the correct name of the desk inside the Oval Office that he likes to use as a footstool.

Via CBS News White House correspondent Mark Knoller:
A sound technician knocked over a glass of water on the president's desk in the oval office while entering for Obama's photo op with Zimbabwean Prime Minister Morgan Tsvangirai.

Obama heard something untoward as the press entered the room.

"Uh oh," he said. "What'd you all get there," he inquired.

"A water glass," came the reply from several in the press.

"Alright," he said with unmistakable dismay in his voice, adding sarcastically, "It's the Resolution Desk. It's only like a hundred years old."

Actually it's the Resolute Desk, made from the timbers of the HMS Resolute, a gift to President Rutherford B. Hayes from Queen Victoria in 1880.

I'm sure that it can handle a little shoe polish too Mr. President.

Obamas' honeymoon with Hollywood is definitely over

You knew it wasn't going to last forever, but you would have thought that Obamas' honeymoon with liberal Hollywood would have lasted longer then most. Earlier this week celebrity libtard Roseanne Barr expressed her complete dissatisfaction with President Obama, now it's Bill Mahers' turn to get his licks in. Maher is totally pissed that Obama is more obsessed with being a media celebrity instead of ramming socialism down our throats. In other words, liberal Hollywood isn't mad at Obama for not trying to do more to save this country. Their mad because he's not doing more to destroy it, especially since he has no one in Congress to oppose him.

Jeremiah Wright unplugged: "Them Jews"

Racist, bigot, and hate-mongering pastor of President Obama for the past 20 years is at it again. We already know he hates America. We already know he hates whites. We even know that he hates some blacks too. So this should come as no surprise that he also hates "Them Jews".

UPDATE: It was all just a big mistake. The good pastor meant to say "Zionist".
“Let me say like Hillary, I misspoke,” Wright said. “Let me just say: Zionists.”

UPDATE UPDATE: Hell freezes over! Jeremiah Wright earns "Worst Person of the World" honors.

Video: Brilliant demonstration of Obama's failed stimulus plan

All those astronomical numbers that President Obama is throwing out there about all the jobs that will be "saved or created" by his economic stimulus package. I think just a couple of days ago he mentioned something like 600,000 jobs by the end of the summer. Yea right!

Those wonderful people over at Political Math who showed us about a month ago what Obama's proposed budget cuts would actually look like compared to his actual spending have come up with another brilliant video. This video shows just how many jobs have been lost since President Obama signed his historic stimulus package into law back in February.

Just how sycophantic can the media be when reporting the Obama economy?

I have seen it my entire life. When Republicans are in the White House, the country is always teetering on the edge of an economic collapse despite the news of stable and/or improving conditions. Every piece of good economic news is always dampened with some sort of qualifier in order to make you feel on edge. During the entire eight years of President Bush every piece of good economic news was always dampened down by the media with their "yea, the economic news is good, BUT..." line. Not so when Democrats (and particularly President Obama) are in the White House. We've got nothing but bad economic news since Obama was sworn in, but according to the liberal mainstream media, it's nothing but gumdrops and lollipops, incense and peppermints, and unicorns prancing in the fields.

Ed Frank, of Frank Strategies: The Blog, has noticed it also. He's put together a terrific video documenting this phenomenon which you need to see.

Perhaps this should be President Obama's campaign poster for 2012.

The liberal mainstream media finally finds religion ... in Obama

For most of my entire adult life I always got the impression that liberals and the mainstream media hated religion and anything remotely religious. All that hysterical whining and arguments about separation of Church and State, banning prayer in schools, removing of the Ten Commandments from inside court buildings, crying foul over public displays of nativity scenes, opposition of the Christmas season, bashing of traditional Christian family values, opposing evangelicals in politics, etc., etc., etc.

But it turns out now that the liberal left and the mainstream media aren't opposed to religion at all. There just opposed to the religion of Christianity and the God of the Bible. According to Newsweek editor Evan Thomas, government should be our religion because President Obama is "god".

EVAN THOMAS: Well, we were the good guys in 1984, it felt that way. It hasn’t felt that way in recent years. So Obama’s had, really, a different task We’re seen too often as the bad guys. And he – he has a very different job from – Reagan was all about America, and you talked about it. Obama is ‘we are above that now.’ We’re not just parochial, we’re not just chauvinistic, we’re not just provincial. We stand for something – I mean in a way Obama’s standing above the country, above – above the world, he’s sort of God. He’s-

Obama's greatest hits: "Blame It"

British PM Gordon Brown delivers major gaffe ... "Obama beach"

British PM Gordon Brown delivers the gaffe of the year by referring to Omaha beach as "Obama beach" while delivering his D-Day speech.

Is it any wonder as to why this man is in so much trouble back home?

Thanks to those who pointed out to me my own gaffe on his name. It's Gordon Brown, not Blair. I'm so embarrassed.

President Ronald Reagan's speech on the 40th anniversary of D-Day

President Ronald Reagan delivers a remarkable speech commemorating the 40th anniversary of D-Day at Point-du-Hoc, Normandy, France. God bless them all who fought and died so that freedom may live, and may we never forget.

Transcript of President Reagan's speech from The History Place website:
We're here to mark that day in history when the Allied armies joined in battle to reclaim this continent to liberty. For 4 long years, much of Europe had been under a terrible shadow. Free nations had fallen, Jews cried out in the camps, millions cried out for liberation. Europe was enslaved, and the world prayed for its rescue. Here in Normandy the rescue began. Here the Allies stood and fought against tyranny in a giant undertaking unparalleled in human history.

We stand on a lonely, windswept point on the northern shore of France. The air is soft, but 40 years ago at this moment, the air was dense with smoke and the cries of men, and the air was filled with the crack of rifle fire and the roar of cannon. At dawn, on the morning of the 6th of June, 1944, 225 Rangers jumped off the British landing craft and ran to the bottom of these cliffs. Their mission was one of the most difficult and daring of the invasion: to climb these sheer and desolate cliffs and take out the enemy guns. The Allies had been told that some of the mightiest of these guns were here and they would be trained on the beaches to stop the Allied advance.

The Rangers looked up and saw the enemy soldiers -- the edge of the cliffs shooting down at them with machineguns and throwing grenades. And the American Rangers began to climb. They shot rope ladders over the face of these cliffs and began to pull themselves up. When one Ranger fell, another would take his place. When one rope was cut, a Ranger would grab another and begin his climb again. They climbed, shot back, and held their footing. Soon, one by one, the Rangers pulled themselves over the top, and in seizing the firm land at the top of these cliffs, they began to seize back the continent of Europe. Two hundred and twenty-five came here. After 2 days of fighting, only 90 could still bear arms.

Behind me is a memorial that symbolizes the Ranger daggers that were thrust into the top of these cliffs. And before me are the men who put them there.

These are the boys of Pointe du Hoc. These are the men who took the cliffs. These are the champions who helped free a continent. These are the heroes who helped end a war.

Gentlemen, I look at you and I think of the words of Stephen Spender's poem. You are men who in your ``lives fought for life . . . and left the vivid air signed with your honor.''

I think I know what you may be thinking right now -- thinking ``we were just part of a bigger effort; everyone was brave that day.'' Well, everyone was. Do you remember the story of Bill Millin of the 51st Highlanders? Forty years ago today, British troops were pinned down near a bridge, waiting desperately for help. Suddenly, they heard the sound of bagpipes, and some thought they were dreaming. Well, they weren't. They looked up and saw Bill Millin with his bagpipes, leading the reinforcements and ignoring the smack of the bullets into the ground around him.

Lord Lovat was with him -- Lord Lovat of Scotland, who calmly announced when he got to the bridge, ``Sorry I'm a few minutes late,'' as if he'd been delayed by a traffic jam, when in truth he'd just come from the bloody fighting on Sword Beach, which he and his men had just taken.

There was the impossible valor of the Poles who threw themselves between the enemy and the rest of Europe as the invasion took hold, and the unsurpassed courage of the Canadians who had already seen the horrors of war on this coast. They knew what awaited them there, but they would not be deterred. And once they hit Juno Beach, they never looked back.

All of these men were part of a rollcall of honor with names that spoke of a pride as bright as the colors they bore: the Royal Winnipeg Rifles, Poland's 24th Lancers, the Royal Scots Fusiliers, the Screaming Eagles, the Yeomen of England's armored divisions, the forces of Free France, the Coast Guard's ``Matchbox Fleet'' and you, the American Rangers.

Forty summers have passed since the battle that you fought here. You were young the day you took these cliffs; some of you were hardly more than boys, with the deepest joys of life before you. Yet, you risked everything here. Why? Why did you do it? What impelled you to put aside the instinct for self-preservation and risk your lives to take these cliffs? What inspired all the men of the armies that met here? We look at you, and somehow we know the answer. It was faith and belief; it was loyalty and love.

The men of Normandy had faith that what they were doing was right, faith that they fought for all humanity, faith that a just God would grant them mercy on this beachhead or on the next. It was the deep knowledge -- and pray God we have not lost it -- that there is a profound, moral difference between the use of force for liberation and the use of force for conquest. You were here to liberate, not to conquer, and so you and those others did not doubt your cause. And you were right not to doubt.

You all knew that some things are worth dying for. One's country is worth dying for, and democracy is worth dying for, because it's the most deeply honorable form of government ever devised by man. All of you loved liberty. All of you were willing to fight tyranny, and you knew the people of your countries were behind you.

The Americans who fought here that morning knew word of the invasion was spreading through the darkness back home. They fought -- or felt in their hearts, though they couldn't know in fact, that in Georgia they were filling the churches at 4 a.m., in Kansas they were kneeling on their porches and praying, and in Philadelphia they were ringing the Liberty Bell.

Something else helped the men of D-day: their rockhard belief that Providence would have a great hand in the events that would unfold here; that God was an ally in this great cause. And so, the night before the invasion, when Colonel Wolverton asked his parachute troops to kneel with him in prayer he told them: Do not bow your heads, but look up so you can see God and ask His blessing in what we're about to do. Also that night, General Matthew Ridgway on his cot, listening in the darkness for the promise God made to Joshua: ``I will not fail thee nor forsake thee.''

These are the things that impelled them; these are the things that shaped the unity of the Allies.

When the war was over, there were lives to be rebuilt and governments to be returned to the people. There were nations to be reborn. Above all, there was a new peace to be assured. These were huge and daunting tasks. But the Allies summoned strength from the faith, belief, loyalty, and love of those who fell here. They rebuilt a new Europe together.

There was first a great reconciliation among those who had been enemies, all of whom had suffered so greatly. The United States did its part, creating the Marshall plan to help rebuild our allies and our former enemies. The Marshall plan led to the Atlantic alliance -- a great alliance that serves to this day as our shield for freedom, for prosperity, and for peace.

In spite of our great efforts and successes, not all that followed the end of the war was happy or planned. Some liberated countries were lost. The great sadness of this loss echoes down to our own time in the streets of Warsaw, Prague, and East Berlin. Soviet troops that came to the center of this continent did not leave when peace came. They're still there, uninvited, unwanted, unyielding, almost 40 years after the war. Because of this, allied forces still stand on this continent. Today, as 40 years ago, our armies are here for only one purpose -- to protect and defend democracy. The only territories we hold are memorials like this one and graveyards where our heroes rest.

We in America have learned bitter lessons from two World Wars: It is better to be here ready to protect the peace, than to take blind shelter across the sea, rushing to respond only after freedom is lost. We've learned that isolationism never was and never will be an acceptable response to tyrannical governments with an expansionist intent.

But we try always to be prepared for peace; prepared to deter aggression; prepared to negotiate the reduction of arms; and, yes, prepared to reach out again in the spirit of reconciliation. In truth, there is no reconciliation we would welcome more than a reconciliation with the Soviet Union, so, together, we can lessen the risks of war, now and forever.

It's fitting to remember here the great losses also suffered by the Russian people during World War II: 20 million perished, a terrible price that testifies to all the world the necessity of ending war. I tell you from my heart that we in the United States do not want war. We want to wipe from the face of the Earth the terrible weapons that man now has in his hands. And I tell you, we are ready to seize that beachhead. We look for some sign from the Soviet Union that they are willing to move forward, that they share our desire and love for peace, and that they will give up the ways of conquest. There must be a changing there that will allow us to turn our hope into action.

We will pray forever that some day that changing will come. But for now, particularly today, it is good and fitting to renew our commitment to each other, to our freedom, and to the alliance that protects it.

We are bound today by what bound us 40 years ago, the same loyalties, traditions, and beliefs. We're bound by reality. The strength of America's allies is vital to the United States, and the American security guarantee is essential to the continued freedom of Europe's democracies. We were with you then; we are with you now. Your hopes are our hopes, and your destiny is our destiny.

Here, in this place where the West held together, let us make a vow to our dead. Let us show them by our actions that we understand what they died for. Let our actions say to them the words for which Matthew Ridgway listened: ``I will not fail thee nor forsake thee.''

Strengthened by their courage, heartened by their value [valor], and borne by their memory, let us continue to stand for the ideals for which they lived and died.

Thank you very much, and God bless you all.

President Roosevelt's D-Day prayer ... June 6, 1944 remembered

May we all remember the heroic bravery and sacrifice that was made 65 years ago today to free the men, women, and children of Europe from the evil of Nazism. May their sacrifice for freedom never be forgotten.

May this prayer that President Roosevelt gave on that historic day be said again for our troops today.

“My Fellow Americans:

“Last night, when I spoke with you about the fall of Rome, I knew at that moment that troops of the United States and our Allies were crossing the Channel in another and greater operation. It has come to pass with success thus far.

“And so, in this poignant hour, I ask you to join with me in prayer:

“Almighty God: Our sons, pride of our nation, this day have set upon a mighty endeavor, a struggle to preserve our Republic, our religion, and our civilization, and to set free a suffering humanity.

“Lead them straight and true; give strength to their arms, stoutness to their hearts, steadfastness in their faith.

“They will need Thy blessings. Their road will be long and hard. For the enemy is strong. He may hurl back our forces. Success may not come with rushing speed, but we shall return again and again; and we know that by Thy grace, and by the righteousness of our cause, our sons will triumph.

“They will be sore tried, by night and by day, without rest -- until the victory is won. The darkness will be rent by noise and flame. Men's souls will be shaken with the violences of war.

“For these men are lately drawn from the ways of peace. They fight not for the lust of conquest. They fight to end conquest. They fight to liberate. They fight to let justice arise, and tolerance and goodwill among all Thy people. They yearn but for the end of battle, for their return to the haven of home.

“Some will never return. Embrace these, Father, and receive them, Thy heroic servants, into Thy kingdom.

“And for us at home -- fathers, mothers, children, wives, sisters, and brothers of brave men overseas, whose thoughts and prayers are ever with them -- help us, Almighty God, to rededicate ourselves in renewed faith in Thee in this hour of great sacrifice.

“Many people have urged that I call the nation into a single day of special prayer. But because the road is long and the desire is great, I ask that our people devote themselves in a continuance of prayer. As we rise to each new day, and again when each day is spent, let words of prayer be on our lips, invoking Thy help to our efforts.

“Give us strength, too -- strength in our daily tasks, to redouble the contributions we make in the physical and the material support of our armed forces.

“And let our hearts be stout, to wait out the long travail, to bear sorrows that may come, to impart our courage unto our sons wheresoever they may be.

“And, O Lord, give us faith. Give us faith in Thee; faith in our sons; faith in each other; faith in our united crusade. Let not the keenness of our spirit ever be dulled. Let not the impacts of temporary events, of temporal matters of but fleeting moment -- let not these deter us in our unconquerable purpose.

“With Thy blessing, we shall prevail over the unholy forces of our enemy. Help us to conquer the apostles of greed and racial arrogances. Lead us to the saving of our country, and with our sister nations into a world unity that will spell a sure peace -- a peace invulnerable to the schemings of unworthy men. And a peace that will let all of men live in freedom, reaping the just rewards of their honest toil.

“Thy will be done, Almighty God.

Dick Cheney's message on terrorism is getting through

Based upon these latest favorable/unfavorable ratings from Gallup, it certainly appears that former Vice President Dick Cheney's message on how he and President Bush conceived and executed their plan to fight terrorism is getting through to the American people. Dick Cheney's poll numbers are trending upward, whereas Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi's (D-CA) (who has been falsely accusing the CIA for lying, and the Bush/Cheney administration for the past month over their execution on the war on terror) poll numbers are tanking. The liberal mainstream media does not want to report this kind of news to you but the truth is that a majority of the American people are beginning to come around and realize that when it comes to fighting terrorism and Islamic extremism, President Bush and Vice President Cheney are right, and President Obama and Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) are wrong.

A liberals dream car

Introducing the 2012 Pelosi GTxi SS/RT Sport Edition.

Via IowaHawk:
It's in the way you dress. The way you boogie down. The way you sign your unemployment check. You're a man who likes to do things your own way. And on those special odd-numbered Saturdays when driving is permitted, you want it in your car. It's that special feeling of a zero-emissions wind at your back and a road ahead meandering with possibilities. The kind of feeling you get behind the wheel of the Pelosi GTxi SS/Rt Sport Edition from Congressional Motors.

All new for 2012, the Pelosi GTxi SS/Rt Sport Edition is the mandatory American car so advanced it took $100 billion and an entire Congress to design it. We started with same reliable 7-way hybrid ethanol-biodeisel-electric-clean coal-wind-solar-pedal power plant behind the base model Pelosi, but packed it with extra oomph and the sassy styling pizazz that tells the world that 1974 Detroit is back again -- with a vengeance.

We've subsidized the features you want and taxed away the rest. With its advanced Al Gore-designed V-3 under the hood pumping out 22.5 thumping, carbon-neutral ponies of Detroit muscle, you'll never be late for the Disco or the Day Labor Shelter. Engage the pedal drive or strap on the optional jumbo mizzenmast, and the GTxi SS/Rt Sport Edition easily exceeds 2016 CAFE mileage standards. At an estimated 268 MPG, that's a savings of nearly $1800 per week in fuel cost over the 2011 Pelosi.

Even with increased performance we didn't skimp on safety. With 11-point passenger racing harnesses, 15-way airbags, and mandatory hockey helmet, you'll have the security knowing that you could survive a 45 MPH collision even if the GTxi SS/Rt were capable of that kind of illegal speed.

But the changes don't stop there. Sporty mag-style hubcaps and an all-new aggressive wedge shape designed by CM's Chief Stylist Ted Kennedy slices through the wind like an omnibus spending bill. It even features an airtight undercarriage to keep you and a passenger afloat up to 15 minutes -- even in the choppy waters of a Cape Cod inlet. Available a rainbow of color choices to match any wardrobe, from Harvest Avocado to French Mustard.

Inside, a luxurious all-velour interior designed by Barney Frank features thoughtful appointments like in-dash condom dispenser and detachable vibrating shift knob. A special high capacity hatchback holds up to 300 aluminum cans, meaning fewer trips to the redemption center. And the standard 3 speaker Fairness ActoPhonic FM low-band sound system means you'll never miss a segment of NPR again.

Best of all, the Pelosi GTxi SS/Rt is made right here in the U.S.A. by fully card-checked unionized workers and Detroit's famous visionary jet-set managers. Even if you don't own one, you can enjoy the patriotic satisfaction that you're supporting the high wages, good benefits, and generous political donations that are once again making the American car industry the envy of the world.

But why not buy one anyway? With an MSRP starting at only $629,999.99, it's affordable too. Don't forget to ask about dealer incentives, rebates, tax credits, and wealth redistribution plans for customers from dozens of qualifying special interest groups. Plus easy-pay financing programs from Fannie Mae.

So take the bus to your local CM dealer today and find out why the Pelosi GTxi SS/Rt Sport Edition is the only car endorsed by President Barack Obama. One test drive will convince you that you'd choose it over the import brands. Even if they were still legal.

Did NBC's Brian Williams bow before President Obama?

From Drudge:

He does work for NBC News, which is part of MSNBC News, which is part of the liberal mainstream media. Conclusion ... hell yea that's a bow!

UPDATE: Hot Air has the video (and a linkback to me ... WOOHOO!)

Will liberals be able to withstand being made fun of?

Finally, a network television show that pokes fun and satirizes the left for a change. ABC's "The Goode Family" is a summer animated series that goes after some of the lefts favorite sacred cow issues. Will it be too much for left to withstand, just like FOX News? Will militant leftist, Vegans, environmental wackos, and others be marching outside of ABC studios demanding it's cancellation. Now's the time to find out if the left can take a joke.

ABC's "The Goode Family" airs on Wednesday nights, 9:00pm EST 8:00pm CST. Here are some of the highlights from last weeks premier episode. It looks pretty amusing.

MSNBC's Joe Scarborough just bit the hand that feeds him

Former Representative and now MSNBC news analyst Joe Scarborough completely went off on his employer and other liberal mainstream media organizations for there complete lack of in-depth, hard-hitting investigative journalism into the experience and background of President Obama. This will not sit well at all with two of President Obama's most infatuated and star-struck reporter's, Matthews and Olbermann, who also work in the same building as Joe. I'm sure that the both of them are plotting and scheming this very minute to have him fired, audited, humiliated, scorned, and exiled for speaking evil of their messiah.
