What we are doing here is not easy. Never was going to be. More evidence from Michigan:

Racist slurs were spray-painted across a large Barack Obama presidential campaign billboard alongside a heavily trafficked stretch of US-23 in Pittsfield Township sometime overnight Tuesday.

And the U.S. Secret Service is investigating what now appears to be two threatening letters against Obama that were received in Livingston County, according to news reports.

Before you watch the video of “Lady” (Yes, her husband is a knight) de Rothschild calling Barack Obama “Elite and out of touch”, contemplate this:

In France, the Rothschild name “is still considered a synonym for extreme wealth.” In addition, the Rothschild name is also used to describe “a suffocatingly glamorous style of living whose decorative elements include neo-Renaissance palaces, extravagant use of velvet and gilding, a sense of Victorian horror vacui, and masterworks of art.”

But hey- Barack Obama, raised by his single mother and grandparents, is an elitist.

I guess you want to change the first Amendment. Why is it when the truth is told about a candidate you try to remove a resource to decide who to vote for. I can no longer believe the advertising’s on television especially the ones coming out of Obama’s mouth or is he Barry Soetoro aka Barry Dunham. I guess you want to be […]

News came out today that someone hacked into Sarah Palin’s Yahoo mail acount.

Yes, this is the same personal email account that Palin was supposedly using for official government business.. The same email address to which she forwarded many of the emails that she is now refusing to release to the troopergate investigation- emails she is claiming she can’t release because of executive privledge.

Aides to Gov. Sarah Palin won’t comply with subpoenas issued by state lawmakers investigating the firing of Alaska’s former public safety commissioner because Palin “has declined to participate” in the probe, her attorney general says.

“As state employees, our clients have taken an oath to uphold the Alaska Constitution, and for that reason, they respect the Legislature’s desire to carry out an investigation in support of its lawmaking powers,” Attorney General Talis Colberg, a Palin appointee, told the investigation’s manager in a letter released Wednesday.

“However, our clients are also loyal employees subject to the supervision of the […]

Pure economic insanity and crisis the likes of which we’ve not seen in YEARS and what is “the business end of the blogosphere” posting about it?

It wasn’t the toughest prediction of all time, but I was still right. We won’t be seeing much of Ms. Fiorina from here on out:

“Carly will now disappear,” this source said. “Senator McCain was furious.” Asked to define “disappear,” this source said, adding that she would be off TV for a while – but remain at the Republican National Committee and keep her role as head of the party’s joint fundraising committee with the McCain campaign.

Fiorina was booked for several TV interviews over the next few days, including one on CNN. Those interviews have been canceled.
