You have to see this video from Townhall to believe it. Barney Frank, fresh from calling Antonin Scalia a homophobe, chastises the Left’s darlings, Code Pink, for being disruptive during his committee hearing today. In fact, he scolds them twice (via Scoop This)
Health, education and energy -- worthy and weighty as they may be -- are not the cause of our financial collapse. And they are not the cure. The fraudulent claim that they are both cause and cure is the rhetorical device by which an ambitious president intends to enact the most radical agenda of social transformation seen in our lifetime.

(AP) As an activist and darling of the anti-war left, Cindy Sheehan earned a couple thousand dollars in a really good week. Now, as a dancer at Chicago's Pink Monkey gentleman's club, she makes almost that much in one good night.
Barney Frank calls Antonin Scalia a 'homophobe', The Hill's Briefing Room, March 23, 2009
Rep. Barney Frank (D-Mass.) called Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia a “homophobe” Friday for opposing gay rights.
“At some point it’s going to have to go to the United States Supreme Court,” he continued. “I wouldn’t want it to go to the United States Supreme Court now because that homophobe Antonin Scalia has too many votes on this court.”

Are We A Banana Republic?
Powerline, March 20, 2009 Posted by John at 4:15 PM
I'm stupefied to find that some people are defending the constitutionality of Nancy Pelosi's discriminatory, confiscatory and retroactive tax on people who receive bonus income from companies that got TARP money. I would have considered it a bright line rule that the government can't identify a class of unpopular people and impose a special tax on them. What's next? A 100% income tax on registered Republicans, retroactive to last year? If Pelosi's bill passes muster, why not?

Eye-Sores Note: The image was deleted by Photobucket. Though I didn't realize the picture was a PS at the time, that actually shouldn't make a bit of difference. Photoshopping is parody and satire by image. It's what we do. It's protected by the First Amendment. But apparently we're allowed to PS everyone in this wide world except... Michelle Obama, whose image the MSM is trying so preciously to glamorize. (For background on this photo, see http://www.theodoresworld.net/archives/2010/01/conservative_scott_baio_actor.html At least Google hasn't purged it... yet.)
I started to replace the image, but on second thought decided to leave it as another small monument to liberal 'tolerance'.
A pox on their houses. Yes, they believe in freedom of speech, so long as we say what they want.

Queen Nancy: "Fly as I say, not as I fly"
Same attitude. Different centuries.
Take a look at the documents obtained recently by Judicial Watch pertaining to Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi’s military travel demands.
Obama is in over his head in the view of the Washington Establishment, as reported by Howard Fineman in Newsweek.
Obama still has the approval of the people, but the establishment is beginning to mumble that the president may not have what it takes.
Luckily for Obama, the public still likes and trusts him, at least judging by the latest polls, including NEWSWEEK’s.But, in ways both large and small, what’s left of the American establishment is taking his measure and, with surprising swiftness, they are finding him lacking.HT: HotAir

If you've ever watched any three nights of his show, you know that Olbermann went to Cornell. But he always forgets to mention that he went to the school that offers classes in milking and bovine management.
Indeed, Keith is constantly lying about his nonexistent "Ivy League" education, boasting to Playboy magazine, for example: "My Ivy League education taught me how to cut corners, skim books and take an idea and write 15 pages on it, and also how to work all day at the Cornell radio station and never actually go to class."
Except Keith didn't go to the Ivy League Cornell; he went to the Old MacDonald Cornell.
The real Cornell, the School of Arts and Sciences (average SAT: 1,325; acceptance rate: 1 in 6 applicants), is the only Ivy League school at Cornell and the only one that grants a Bachelor of Arts degree.
Keith went to an affiliated state college at Cornell, the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences (average SAT: about that of pulling guards at the University of South Carolina; acceptance rate: 1 of every 1.01 applicants).

Hope and Change: The Operation Rushbo Distraction
posted at 12:30 pm on March 4, 2009 by Ed MorrisseyIf the first six weeks of the Barack Obama administration can be summed up in one sentence, it would be this: Obama fiddled with Rush Limbaugh while Wall Street burned. ...
It’s reminiscent of Nixon’s enemies list, and it comes from the supposed messiah of Hope and Change....
It’s a circus provided by Democrats to cover up their economic incompetence and massively ineffective spending programs. It’s also a harbinger of things to come as this administration fumbles one issue after another, as they will only need to expand the personal attacks against critics rather than respond to the criticism itself.

Rush Job: Inside Dems' Limbaugh plan
Soon it clicked: Democrats realized they could roll out a new GOP bogeyman for the post-Bush era by turning to an old one in Limbaugh, a polarizing figure since he rose to prominence in the 1990s.
He even seemed to make an unusual foray into investment advice. “What you’re now seeing is profit and earning ratios [sic] are starting to get to the point where buying stocks is a potentially good deal if you’ve got a long-term perspective on it,” he said.
Here's a hot tip: Less time on the basketball court and community organizing, and more time in Economics/Finance 101.
The guy who has no clue about finance/economics and markets is now supposed to fix ours? God help us all.
