The great Michael Ramirez hits another home run. He takes on the media by publishing a media guide for the journalistically challenged to show just who Jared Loughner really is.
If this isn’t the feel-good story of the year, I don’t know what is. Via HotAir, ABC News catches up with the Parker family in Massachusetts and their big helper, Rudy Favard, the local high school football captain and the world’s sweetest linebacker (as Allahpundit dubs him). You WILL want to read the Boston Globe piece from before Christmas to get a more in depth look at the situation.
According to the Globe, he’s already been accepted by four colleges but his choice will be constrained by their offers of financial aid. To which I say, if a school can’t come up with a little extra cash for a kid like this, they might as well close their doors. Exit quotation: “Just lend a hand. It’s not that hard.”
Jay Leno, in his monologue last night, pointed out something many people missed when Nancy Pelosi handed over the Speakers gavel to John Boehner yesterday. As Jay points out, is it really a ‘non-violent’ transfer of power?
Liberals heads are exploding over the fact that House Speaker John Boehner wants to have the Constitution read aloud tomorrow and also that the GOP wants to have a rule that all bills brought up before the House of Representatives must reference where the Constitution authorizes the legislation.
Via Breitbart and the great Ken Shepard at Newsbusters, Joy Behar had Bill Press on her show as well as another liberal the other night. In the clip, she decries ‘isn’t all this Constitution loving getting out of hand?’
Bill Press laments that ‘there is some good stuff in there about the right of privacy that they have never heard before.’ I guess Mr. Press has not heard about neither the unreasonable TSA searches now going on at all airports across the country or the random bag checks on Metro (both instituted under a Democratic/liberal administration). I’m guessing that Bill Press doesn’t know that the Constitution is in fact the ‘Supreme law of the land.’
MEMO TO BILL PRESS: Maybe you should re-read Article 6 of the Constitution. Also, there is no mention whatsoever of a ‘right of privacy’ in the Constitution either. This right has been granted to the public by the liberal court system. However, the courts have recently declared that you really should have no expectation to a right of privacy at all. The courts have said recently that Government can sneak onto your property in the middle of the night, install a GPS locator on the bottom of your car, and track your every movement.
Where’s the right of privacy there Bill?
The fact is, liberals like Joy Behar and Bill Press despise the Constitution. They see it as some old document that no one can decipher. Liberals want the Government to have unlimited power which is not what the founding fathers intended at all.
Exit question: As Speaker Boehner so eloquently said today:
“The American people have humbled us. They have refreshed our memories as to just how temporary the privilege to serve is. This is their Congress. It’s about them, not us.”
Isn’t it about time that they started working for us and not the other way around?
The ESPN Sportscenter ads are usually terrific with some lame ones mixed in between but this new one featuring the Gr8 Alex Ovechkin and Varly is pretty good.
Exit question: Would the ad have been better or more effective had Ovie been in a Tom Cruise like pose when Steve Levy turns on the light?
In any case, Go CAPS!
BankruptingAmerica.org, an national deficit advocacy site run by a former GOP hill staffer, has paid for ad space around Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport to get the attention of incoming GOP freshmen. This is a fantastic idea.
Signs asking freshman members of Congress to keep their promises to cut spending are among the first things newly elected reps will see at Reagan National Airport as they make their way to Washington to start the 112th Congress.
The messages in the baggage-claim area and in other locations around the airport written in bold red type say things like: “Congratulations on your election victory. Now cut some spending.”; “Dear new member of Congress, we know you just got here, but have you cut some spending yet?”; and “Remember your campaign promise to cut spending? We do. Keep your promise.”
Let’s hope the new GOP Congressmen and women don’t lose their way like the GOP did starting in the late 90′s. To learn more about Bankrupting America, visit this link.
Rain, rain go away, come again another day. Looks like the puck will drop about 8:00 p.m. tomorrow night (January 1, 2011).
Will the weatherman be wrong?
