Friday Calf Blogging

This is a calf rendition of the the 2008 election.

The mama cow represents those looking to get elected. “Pick me, pick me, pick me [poke,poke], pick me!!!!!!!”
The calf represents us. “Oh PLEASE LORD do not make me pick one these people!”

The Obamafile

Thank you Matt Drudge for spreading this story of Obama in Iraq working hard to delay agreements between our governments. Wrong on so many levels, we’ll just call it evil.

Neoneocon talks of Ayer’s “educational reformer” status.

Thomas Sowell also.

Charles Krauthammer goes for the “Obama’s friends”

But associations are important

Ed Morrissey notes Obama’s latest idiotic tale (lie) of why he hung out with this guy who was “just a guy in my neighborhood”, who’s “kids went to school with my kids”, who was “on some board together”, who “held a fundraiser for me”, who now is ok to have as a friend because he thought Ayers was “rehabilitated”.
You’re right Ed,

That dog won’t hunt.

And then of course you can see anywhere Obama’s donations to the now notorious ACORN people.
As Joel Stein says, if you’re still undecided, don’t bother. You may have to hold your nose and vote for McCain but how a person can be undecided at this point is beyond me.
ps, I loved this quote of his regarding the dubious ACORN crap.

There’s a reason all the organizations trying to increase the number of voters are full of liberals. It’s because poor people, minorities, the undereducated and the young are the least likely to register; the higher the turnout among those groups, the better the Democrats do. The reason no one is trying to “Country Music the Vote” is because George Strait fans already vote.

And for your viewing pleasure, this Reason TV episode is on healthcare. It shows the real people that the intellectual elite like to a) excuse their behavior and b) take care of because it’s “needed” and c) sign up to vote because many will automatically go D.

One more thing today. I won’t link it but the NYTimes has yet another Palin vs the State Trooper story on it’s FRONT PAGE. Yet not an effing word about Obama/Ayers except to say that McCain is questioning the relationship.

Stay tuned for more Obamafiles because they are bound to load up.

David Brooks has lost his sense

David Brooks today blames the right for driving away the highly educated. Without really noting that the highly educated have driven away every regular joe.

But over the past few decades, the Republican Party has driven away people who live in cities, in highly educated regions and on the coasts. This expulsion has had many causes. But the big one is this: Republican political tacticians decided to mobilize their coalition with a form of social class warfare. Democrats kept nominating coastal pointy-heads like Michael Dukakis so Republicans attacked coastal pointy-heads.

It goes on.

What had been a disdain for liberal intellectuals slipped into a disdain for the educated class as a whole.

and on

If Democratic leaders prized deliberation and self-examination, then Republicans would govern from the gut.

ending with Sarah Palin and how the Republicans have screwed themselves.

Here’s the rub. David is talking about “the educated class”, but the only “educated class” there is that is a class into and of itself is the lefty educated class. They are the ones who know better than you. They are the ones who want to be sure you know how bad it is for you to use a water bottle and by george they will fly their jet to your locale to tell you how bad it is.

They will tell you how bad Walmart is for the poor without once mentioning how popular Walmart is with the poor.
A woman I met once in Leadville who sold only Native American made items talked to me about how horrible it was that with Walmarts in Gallup, NM, the native people were buying their yarn vs spinning it themselves! OMG!! You mean they want to sell more rugs and make more profit and maybe get ahead vs torturing themselves with spinning in order for you to make your self righteous profit?

This country is basically 50/50 yet David Brooks blames the GOP for dissing the intellectual elite without once mentioning how the intellectual elite could actually have more voters themselves if they wouldn’t dis the regular people.
