Obama and the iPod

May 10, 2010

So the big O can’t operate an iPod? the device that is credited with revolutionizing the portable music player because of its simple, intuitive interface? The same device that he gave to the septagenerian Queen of England as a state gift? I would love to hear Steve Jobs’ reaction to this howler. Thanks Glenn

Op-Ed Columnist – The Fat Lady Has Sung –

February 22, 2010

Today’s entertainment provided by Tom Friedman:

the rise of cable TV has transformed politics in our country generally into just another spectator sport, like all-star wrestling. C-Span is just ESPN with only two teams. We watch it for entertainment, not solutions.

Unless your desired entertainment is to watch C-Span for debates on reforming health care.  There’s plenty of other unintentional humor that makes this worth reading once…once.  chuckles abound here

National Journal Online — Insider Interviews — Cook: Health Care Is Obama’s Iraq

February 21, 2010

Hope and Change from Charlie Cook:

Cook: I’ve spent the last couple of days talking to some of the brightest Democrats in the party that are not in the White House. And it’s very hard to come up with a scenario where Democrats don’t lose the House. It’s very hard. Are the seats there right this second? No. But we’re on a trajectory on the House turning over….

Mark Davis: Can Medina recover from unmitigated disaster? | News for Dallas, Texas | Dallas Morning News | Opinion: Viewpoints

February 12, 2010

I like Mark Davis about 90% of the time on the issues although I frequently can’t listen to him because of the way he treats callers on his show, however this editorial strikes me as pitch perfect.  I had been moving in the direction of voting for Medina, but this incident gives me pause for two reasons.

If she does believe the truther nonsense, then she has no business being in the governor’s race.  If she does NOT believe it, then she should have known that being painted with that brush would be political suicide and ought to have been prepared to deal with the question.

I hope that she is able to explain her response in a satisfactory manner because I would like to support her candidacy, but this is a huge problem for me and I suspect for many others.

Read it and weep.

Conrad Black: Incompetent Obama teeters on the edge – Full Comment

January 23, 2010

A humorous review of the train wreck that has been Obama’s first year in office by someone who writes well with a foreign perspective. Hat tip to Glenn for this one. Read the whole thing.

No one is audibly lamenting the retirement of George W. or throwing shoes at his successor’s head because he speaks in sentences, but this president is bestriding the world as a flake, cow-towing to the Mikado, apologizing for President Truman’s use of the atomic bomb, criticizing Roosevelt and Churchill’s uninclusive approach to winning World War II, and Churchill and Eisenhower for disposing of the pajama-clad hysteric Mohammed Mossadegh as head of Iran.

Dana Milbank – Sweeteners for the South

November 22, 2009

And so it came to pass that Landrieu walked onto the Senate floor midafternoon Saturday to announce her aye vote — and to trumpet the financial “fix” she had arranged for Louisiana. “I am not going to be defensive,” she declared. “And it’s not a $100 million fix. It’s a $300 million fix.”…

Landrieu and Lincoln got the attention because they were the last to decide, but the Senate really has 100 Blanche DuBoises, a full house of characters inclined toward the narcissistic.

David S. Broder – David Broder: Fears of health-reform cost are justifiable

Republican Scozzafava Drops Out of New York Congressional Race –  More on this later, but I’m pleased to hear that the voice of the people is being heard.  If a conservative can run as a conservative and be competitive in New York, then why not elsewhere?  Why do conservatives have to settle for second, third, or worse from the GOP?  I’m going to break out the big stick on a certain local radio host who has been very critical of the Hoffman campaign and those who have chosen to support him, but for now I’m just going to be happy for a little while.
