Oh so edgy: Saturday Night Live tries to give Christine O’Donnel the Tina Fey treatment

Look, I’m no water carrier for Christine O’Donnell, but really? This is cutting edge comedy? The whole first half of the skit is a rehash of low hanging fruit that lefty hack Bill Maher worked hard to put out in the public domain. The second half of the skit is designed to simultaneously confuse and suck up to liberals.

I don’t believe for a minute that the dog fighting joke was random; given the ongoing emotional response to the Eagles’ Michael Vick (refreshed anew since his naming as starter), and Delaware’s proximity to Philadelphia, is there a more disgusting crime you can joke about someone committing? And is there a chance that people will mistake this skit with reality? Do most idiots on the left still attribute “I can see Russia from my house” with Sarah Palin or Tina Fey?

So to even things out, will Saturday Night Live open with a skit next week portraying Chris Coons as a closet pedophile (har har har!)? Yeah. Don’t bet on it.

It’s so much fun to laugh at Christine O’Donnell isn’t it, liberals? It makes you little people almost feel like part of the ruling elite by actually getting their jokes.

Jihadis in Philly

Ryan Mauro at Pajamas Media writes about Jihadis in Philadelphia:

The state of Pennsylvania (Philadelphia in particular), the home of the Liberty Bell, is attracting Islamists peddling a softer, slicker form of jihad. These Islamists are careful not to raise alarm lest they jeopardize their long-term goals. It’s not clear what is attracting the groups, but staying true to the Keystone State nickname, Pennsylvania is becoming a common congregating point for Islamists.

Re: You Stay Classy, John Street

Joe, dont forget that the Honorable Mayor Street famously declared at a NAACP convention :

“the brothers and sisters are running the city. Oh, yes. The brothers and sisters are running this city. Running it! Don’t you let nobody fool you, we are in charge of the City of Brotherly Love. We are in charge! We are in charge!”

So yeah. Class act. All the way.

You Stay Classy, John Street

Ex-Philly mayor Street speaking about current mayor Nutter:

He is “not a black mayor. He’s just a mayor with dark skin,”

Washington DC just went through this too, where the Af-Am mayor lost his primary to another Af-Am in large part because he wasn’t perceived as black enough.  Whatever that means.  (How dare Fenty try to shake up the catastrophic failure of DC’s public education!?  The nerve!)

So much for the post-racial era.

Mark Critz: Another Democrat Lying About Social Security

I know, this is sort of a “dog bites man” story, but Mark Critz continues to lie and evade about his position and the position of his opponent Tim Burns.

The Critz campaign recently sent out two patently dishonest tweets:

critz_SS_tweet1

and

critz_SS_tweet2

Of course, Burns’ website says something very different (bold added):

Social Security is a solemn promise we’ve made to our seniors and I will work tirelessly to protect it. Washington’s reckless spending and disastrous economic agenda threatens to bankrupt the country and puts Social Security at risk. With every bailout or failed “stimulus”, Washington raids the Social Security trust fund, further endangering the promise we’ve made to Americans who have worked their entire lives.

We must put an end to the dangerous spending that threatens Social Security before it is too late. Cutting benefits to seniors should never be an option. I oppose the privatization of Social Security and oppose raising the retirement age for America’s seniors. I’ll get to work immediately to put an end to spending Social Security trust fund money and will always make sure we keep our promise to seniors.

I looked on Critz’ campaign website for a clue as to his plan for entitlement reform, but I didn’t find anyI guess Critz is sticking with the “pretend nothing is wrong” plan.

Also, if anybody remembers, the first person to suggest putting Social Security money in the stock market was none other than Bill Clinton.  The much more modest plan that many Republicans advocate is (1) optional, (2) fractional, and (3) excludes those in or near retirement.

So even with the most aggressive of the Republican plans, no seniors would be affected and nobody would be forced to put their money in the stock market.

Mark Critz has once again proven that he’s just another feckless DC politician, willing to say anything and everything to get re-elected without regard for the truth.

Sigh!

Once again, despite a valiant effort, the formerly fearsome Quaker warriors failed in their attempt to defeat  their effete suburban rivals, falling to the Villanova Wildcats 22-10. This is the Quakes seventh straight loss to the suburbanites. I suspect foul play. Certain Villanovans have been known to pray for victory, thus invoking supernatural outside assistance in their bid for dominance.

Oh well, there’s always next century.

Bombshells Aplenty in Coates’ New Black Panther Testimony

I have to admit that I thought the Department of Justice would successfully sweep the New Black Panther Party voter intimidation case under the rug.

I have never been so happy to be wrong. J. Christian Adams, the DOJ whistleblower who first brought the case to the nation’s attention, gives us an update via Pajamas Media:

It has been a very bad week for the dwindling number of people defending the dismissal of the voter intimidation case against the New Black Panther Party by Eric Holder’s Justice Department. Today might have been the worst day of all. Former Voting Section Chief Christopher Coates testified to the United States Civil Rights Commission that Obama political appointees dismissed the case because they are opposed to enforcing civil rights laws in a racially neutral fashion.

Coates verified that the DOJ is infested with racially motivated hostility towards equal enforcement of the law. Like me, Coates testified about the history of open and pervasive hostility inside the Voting Section to protecting the rights of white voters. This hostility first emerged in the case against Ike Brown in Noxubee County, Mississippi, going back as far as 2004:

The opposition within the Voting Section to taking actions on behalf of white voters in Noxubee County, Mississippi, … was widespread.

Coates confirmed that senior managers didn’t even want to open the investigation into discrimination against white voters in Noxubee County:

The Deputy Chief who was leading that election coverage asked me: “can you believe that we are going to Mississippi to protect white voters?”

Coates described how his memoranda were doctored by former Voting Section Chief Joe Rich, confirming my testimony as well as an article that appeared here at PJM this week.

Um…isn’t that, you know, criminal?

[An attorney told Coates in] no uncertain terms that he had not come to the Voting Section to sue African American defendants. … One of the social scientists who worked in the Voting Section and whose responsibility it was to do past and present research into a local jurisdiction’s history flatly refused to participate in the investigation. On another occasion, a Voting Section career attorney informed me that he was opposed to bringing voting rights cases against African American defendants … until we reached the day when the socio-economic status of blacks in Mississippi was the same as the socio-economic status of whites living there.

Maybe not technically illegal, but it’s wildly unethical.

Coates also said that he was testifying because the Department has made misrepresentations to Congress, to the Civil Rights Commission, and to the public, sometimes under oath.

OK–that is definitely perjury which means it’s definitely illegal.

Absolutely mind-boggling. Read the whole thing.

Jihadists Making Themselves At Home

It’s sorta circumstantial, connect-the-dots stuff, but interesting nonetheless.

The Uprising

I’m not sure who Ben Howe is, but he captures the spirit of the Tea Party pretty well. November is coming soon….
