President Obama has finally acted on ebola.  He has named a new “Ebola Czar” The ebola czar is…..Ron Klain.  Here is how he is described by the New York Times: PresidentObama will appoint Ron Klain, a former chief of staff for VicePresidents Al Gore and Joseph R. Biden Jr., to manage thegovernment\’s response to the deadly virus as anxiety grows over...

A RICK SCOTT RETHINK

Yesterday I skewered Florida\’s Republican Governor Rick Scott, for making a big deal out of the fact that his opponent, Republican/then Independent/now Democrat Charlie Crist had a fan at his podium.  I suggested that Scott should never have made a big deal out of it, and that his silly, petulant reaction to this next-to-nothing breach of the rules would hurt him among...

THE DEMOCRAT EBOLA STRATEGY

Democrats, as a party, are scared excrementless (that\’s the long-form way of saying it) over the ebola crisis. They are scared because it is a deadly virus that might quickly spread in the USA, and they are scared because voters might start blaming someone for it (not necessarily in that order). Obviously, if the blame falls on someone, Democrats would like it to fall on their...

HOW TO JEOPARDIZE AN ELECTION BY BEING (TECHNICALLY) RIGHT

Want a lesson in how to jeopardize an election by being (tehnically) right? Well, Florida\’s Republican Governor, Rick Scott, provided a great one last night, at the start of his debate with Republican-turned Independent-turned Democrat Charlie Crist. One of the ground rules agreed upon by both sides, was that there would be no electronic devices available at each...

THE QUOTE OF THE DAY

Today\’s quote comes from the Pentagon\’s Rear Admiral John Kirby.  He said it last week, but it is as true now as it was then: “Wedon\’t have a willing, capable, effective partner on the ground insideSyria right now. It\’s just a fact.” In other words,  the Obama “fauxalition”, which is meaningless without ground troops, has no...

A TRULY SCATHING EDITORIAL ABOUT EBOLA

The New York Daily News – a newspaper which endorsed Barack Obama in 2008 (not in 2012) has a editorial today – buttressed by a remarkably blunt front page – that should be required reading for anyone who thinks the Obama administration is handling the ebola crisis in any way capably. Here are excerpts from the editorial (which you can read by clicking here – and I hope...

ALISON LUNDRGRAN NUNN?

Remember when Democrats were licking their lips over the possibility, even likelihood, that Alison Lundergran Grimes would overhaul Mitch McConnell and chalk up a senate win for them in Kentucky? Unfortunately for them, Ms. Grimes turned out not to be as strong a candidate as they thought she was.  But her chances were good enough that the DSCC still continued pumping...

DID AMBER VINSON GET AN OK FROM THE CDC?

Did the CDC tell nurse Amber Vinson that it was OK for her to fly to Cleveland?  According to Megyn Kelly, she says it did. CDC Director thomas freiden, has already made himself look ridiculous by coming on TV with his vacuous Guy Smiley persona, and making comments so absurd that an average 7 year old would shake his/her head in amazement (like, for example, that banning flights between the...

REMEMBER BOWE BERGDAHL?

Remember bowe bergdahl?  In case you don\’t, he is the “soldier” who deserted his company in Iraq – the one President Obama traded for five career terrorists who, I have no doubt at all, will resume their terrorist activities now that he has freed them (they probably already have): Here is the beginning of an article, written by Francesca Chambers for...

DISGUSTING IMBECILE ALERT

Ever hear of someone named steven vaillancourt?  If you\’re really lucky, the answer is no. steven vaillancourt is a Republican State Representative from New Hampshire.  He is also a disgusting imbecile, who shames his constituency – and his state, country and basically the human race. Excerpted from Rebecca Kaplan\’s article for CBS news: NewHampshire State Rep...

MEDIA BIAS? NAAAAHHHH

Last week I blogged, derisively, about the fact that CBS Evening News with Scott Pelley had not reported its own CBS/NY Times poll data, which showed the Democrat Party in terrible shape as we head toward the midterm elections. Well, they ain\’t the only ones. The latest ABC News/Washington Post poll came out today.  And it is borderline disastrous for Democrats: -President Obama, who...

THE QUOTE OF THE DAY

You had to know this was going to happen. You had to know that the ebola scare (heading rapidly toward a panic), driven by a combination of the lack of any preparedness on the part of the CDC, the absurd lies of its Director, thomas freiden (who should already have either resigned or been fired), and the refusal of Barack Obama to halt flights into and out of West Africa, where it is...

CHRIS MATTHEWS AND THE VOTER ID ISSUE

Chris Matthews is at it again.   On last night\’s “Hardball\’ show Matthews decided to serve up a softball to Senator Kay Hagan (D-NC), who is in a tough fight to hold her seat against Republican Thom Tillis.   Matthews settled on the voter ID issue – partly, I assume, because North Carolina has a large (about 21%) Black population, and partly because he...
