Okay, maybe it’s not that earth shattering, but pretty close!
Rolling Stone Magazine actually published an article that speaks lowly of ::gasp:: Democrats ::swoons::! I know, right? Did you feel the earth move too?
While it’s not ground-breaking, hard-hitting news, here’s an excerpt of what the Ragish – I mean Rolling – Stone has to say about Governor Blagojevich and the Democrats handling of him:
God knows if any of this is the president’s fault, but in their handling of the preposterous scandal surrounding Illinois governor Rod Blagojevich, the Democratic Party leaders under Barack Obama have brought us all hurtling back to the nightmarish prevarication of the Clinton years — those horrifying days when the party’s enduring inability to act decisively allowed Barnum-esque con men like Ken Starr to hold all of America hostage.
About one month before the elections, I emailed Senator Obama’s campaign website and asked for the web address for the “Google for Government” site he kept bragging about being a part of. From that point on, I began receiving e-mails from Obama’s entire staff keeping me informed of the wonderful things “The One” is planning/doing.
I normally just delete the silly things, but I have been receiving about two or three of THESE types of e-mails a week for the past several weeks and I have to say HMM…
It’s been just over a month since Election Day, and we’re getting ready to change America.
We can’t do it alone, and we can’t do it in a single day.

The election is over. He had a mega-surplus of campaign funds. So, what is this all about? Just how far into debt did the DNC go for an Obama win?
Tell ’em what they’ve won, Johnny….. Inquiring minds want to know.
I’m just saying…

Number 12 on Non-Fiction List of NYT Best Sellers for 11/30/08:
From Newsmax, posted October 26,2008 by Lowell Ponte:
Democratic vice presidential candidate Joe Biden did not tell the truth Thursday when hit with tough questions about ACORN from a veteran journalist.
“Aren’t you embarrassed by the blatant attempt to register phony voters by ACORN, an organization that Barack Obama has been tied to in the past?” said Orlando, Fla., WFTV anchor Barbara West.
“I am not embarrassed by it,” Biden replied. “We are not tied to them. We have not paid them one single penny to register a single solitary voter . . . We register the voters ourselves, and so there is no relationship.”
A Newsmax Fact Check shows that Obama has had a long relationship with the group, and the Obama campaign did indeed pay an ACORN subsidiary more than $800,000. The radical Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN) is a multi-faced creature its founders spun off into about 100 separate legal entities.

I bought the two books out about Barack Obama today at Sam’s Club…
The Case Against Barack Obama: The Unlikely Rise and Unexamined Agenda of the Media’s Favorite Candidate, by David Freddoso, political reporter for National Review Online
The Obama Nation: Leftist Politics and the Cult of Personality, by Jerome R. Corsi, Ph.D, who co-authored the book on John Kerry in the last election cycle.
I have heard, of course, good and bad things about both books. The left says they are both riddled with lies and innuendos. The right says they are both spot on and should be required reading.
I say, I don’t know enough about Obama to know. I’ll highlight things that sound fishy and do my own research, just like I do with all non-fiction I read. It’s just how I am. I do have to say, though, my gut feeling is one of dread where Obama is concerned. No one who has today’s media having orgasmic reactions about them can be a good person – just by the nature of what the media IS! And he truly is the media’s darling child.
I saw two bumper stickers while in town today that just really puzzle the crap out of me:
One was the “Save the Baby Seal” bumper sticker, but with a twist. It had a picture of the bloodied, skinned bodies of baby seals killed on a seal hunt. It was quite gruesome to see. And it made me glad they have not followed this trend on the “Save the Baby Human” bumper stickers…. although I imagine an image of aborted fetuses would have quite an impact on people.
The other read: 9/11 Was An Inside Job
Now to me this means there are people out there who actually believe:
1. The POTUS worked with Al-Quida to teach terrorists how to use planes as bombs.
2. He then looked the other way, ignoring any sign it was going to happen.
3.. He planned the death of thousands of men, women and children.
4. He put an entire city in jeopardy for….. oil? A case to invade Iraq? What? He was bored?
5. The government planned to demolish The Pentagon.
And that would be just some of the beliefs. If this were the case, and they felt they had proof, shouldn’t they be doing more than plastering bumper stickers on their cars? Because, quite frankly, if this is true, then President Bush should be brought up on murder charges – along with anyone who helped with this terrible conspiracy.
I’m just saying…
