While the Newsweek photo of Sarah Palin does not scream political professionalism (it was intended for Runner’s World, after all), it is, by itself, actually quite flattering. She looks like the All-American Girl: Pretty, confident, with a twinkle of “I know this will piss off the left” in her eyes. Did I mention she’s pretty?
The elation oozing from the left about the Obama Administration’s decision to try Khalid Sheik Mohammad in a civilian court, where he will not be tried as a war criminal but will be given constitutional rights, is in stark contrast to the rabid liberal lynch mob that demanded George Bush, Dick Cheney, and Karl Rove should have been “frogmarched” to the gallows and hung for war crimes. Simply a bottomless pit of hypocrisy.
It seems “Bumbling Joe Biden Syndrome” is contagious. Over the past two weeks, members of his motorcade have been involved in three accidents, including one, in which, unfortunately, a pedestrian was killed. I can’t help thinking what kind of garbage would bubble up from the sewers of the left had Dick Cheney’s motorcade been involved in something like this. His hunting accident was talked about for months, and provided endless comedic fodder for late-night talk shows.
The AP has assigned 11 people to fact-check Sarah Palin’s book, and have supposedly found 6 minor discrepancies. If they had only devoted that kind of scrutiny to the two Obama memoirs, his ties to Jeremiah Wright and Bill Ayers, Hillary’s books, or perhaps to the stimulus and health care bills, they might not be looked at as liberal toadies, and we all may have been better off.
It has been reported that Israel is planning to build new settlements within its borders of East Jerusalem. This has brought a storm of criticism from the Obama Administration, Europe, and Russia. Funny how Israel, a nation the size of New Jersey, gets beaten up for providing homes for its cramped citizens, yet, just last week there was a rocket attack launched from Gaza into Sderot, Israel, and nary a peep was heard from these same people.
More “Plugs” Biden: Vice President Joe stopped off to serve food at a Washington homeless shelter last week. As head of the Middle Class Task Force, he must be preparing us for what to expect in the future. Next up: How to grate government cheese.
