Dennis Miller made an excellent point tonight on O’Reilly which Bill poo-pooed because it wasn’t his idea first. Let me say before I go on that I’m no Factor fan, I just like his guests and sometimes they’re able to get a complete thought expressed before Bill interrupts them. Frankly, Bill is annoying with his “looking out for the folks” meme all the time.
But I digress.
Congresswoman Michele Bachmann
The point Miller made was that if the LSM goes after Michele Bachmann in the same ruthless and cruel way they’ve gone after Sarah Palin, the media will have established an MO. That won’t look so good for them. Do these liberal journalists want to appear to be the misogynists that they really are or would they rather stay in the closet? Miller gave great kudos to Palin for laying the ground work for all women to come after her because she’s taken all the abuse and heat – there can’t be any left unless the leftist media want to appear in the ugliest of lights. They will look like women haters – even if the woman in question happens to be conservative.
Party affiliation won’t matter a lot to the American people if they see the media pillaging yet one more UNDESERVING female candidate.
The people that both parties will be fighting for will be the independents: the so-called moderate Americans. They are leaving the democrat party because it’s been hijacked by leftist extremists. It’s no longer the party of their parents. It’s now the party of Che and Mao. And I’m pretty sure those moderate American voters don’t want to be aligned with communists. I think as it is, it will be hard for the democrats to win them back, but it will be especially hard if they see unfair and unnecessary gender abuse from the media, sanctioned by the democrat party.

Have you noticed that, during this election, every time a Republican candidate appears on Fox, his Democrat opposition “can’t be reached” or “declined to appear”? The cable news channel with, hands down, the largest viewership in every single time slot, and the opposition refuses to be seen on it. Charlie Crist is a the most recent notable example of a non-Republican candidate who actually did appear (on Greta last week.) And there have been debates on Chris Wallace’s show where both candidates appeared. But for the most part, the Democrats stay clear of Fox. I guess they don’t care about the likely voters they might connect with or the donors that they are snubbing. Nothing has become more apparent than the fact that every single election, whether it’s in New Jersey or Oregon, have national implications and money from all over the nation come into those campaigns.
A few weeks ago I signed a petition at Americans for Prosperity and when doing so, I signed up to volunteer making phone calls. I didn’t do that on purpose and in fact, had no idea I had done it until I got a phone call last week asking me “how I was doing on my phone calls.”
“Oh,” I said, I’ll be getting on that tonight.” Great save, I thought.
Ah geeze. I had no idea I had volunteered to do this but then I thought about what Levin had said about doing the least this election while others, in Afghanistan, were giving their all for our freedom. So I went online and read the stuff and tried to make the calls but numbers wouldn’t show up on my screen. After a half dozen attempts, I finally realized that – duh, you have to be plugged into a phone line. So, I dug out a phone cable and plugged myself in. Okay, all set to call folks and tell them to vote for the Republicans in Arizona this election day.
But still no numbers appeared on my screen. Then I realized that I had basically shut off our lan phone. I can receive calls in but can make no calls out (except for 911) and only kept the line for the internet. We don’t even have a phone plugged in at our house because we use strictly our cell phones. You can find my phone number in the phone book but no one will ever answer it.
So my almost good, although accidental intentions were for naught. But I’ve decided that by ’12, I will have my home phone up and running to do my part.
Make no mistake about it, the 2012 campaign will begin this week, on November 3rd. It’s going to be an eternity. But as s nation we can’t survive another 4 years of this guy.
I think the most despicable part of this whole election cycle is the ballots that will not arrive in time for our soldiers overseas to vote. Nothing expresses the incompetence of our elected officials better than this. They knew over a year ago that the second day in November was election day (like that never changes, you dumbasses) and still they could not have the ballots ready and mailed in time. Elections should be held up until every single soldier who wants to vote, is able to.
This is nothing short of shameful and a transparent suppression of voters who will likely not vote in the Democrats favor!
I don’t know about anyone else, but I welcome gridlock in Washington. I’m proud to be the party of NO. I remember the story Levin tells about what Senator Laxalt told him years ago: “Every day that Congress convenes, is another day of lost liberty for Americans.” (or words to that affect, I’m paraphrasing here.) The less those people can do, the better for all of us. I hope they tie up things and gum up the works. There have been enough damage done in the bills and presidential appointments that have already been passed.

Florida independent Senate candidate Charlie Crist personally lobbied Democratic candidate Kendrick Meek to exit the race this week, offering him a cross that had been a gift from his sister, Mr. Meek said Friday.
The gesture occurred Monday as Mr. Crist and Mr. Meek were surrounded by local Jewish leaders at a Hollywood, Fla., meeting of the pro-Israel lobbying group American Israel Public Affairs Committee.
“I was shocked when he did it,” Mr. Meek said in an interview late Friday. “I told him to keep the cross and that I carry my Christianity in my heart.”
Crist spokesman Danny Kanner said he would not comment on a private conversation.
This must’ve been like a diamond encrusted cross or something. Even one that had been blessed by the Pope (and I’m a Catholic) would not entice me to drop out of a race if I were Meeks.
I gotta ask myself “what was this about?” I’m perplexed. . .

[F[or many more people in line at the polls in Miami Gardens, fears of a possible Senator Rubio were guiding their decisions. Voters said they waited nearly an hour to cast their ballots because they wanted to stand up against Mr. Rubio’s support for an Arizona-style immigration law, his stated goal of changing Social Security and his association with the Tea Party, which struck many as a mask for ignoring the needs of black Floridians and the less fortunate.
“When I hear Rubio speak, it’s just frightening,” said Stephanie Moore, 49, a freelance consultant who said she would vote for Mr. Crist. “That whole Tea Party movement — it’s going to set black folks back by 40 years.”
Read entire story here.
I don’t understand this kind of thinking, at all. Setting black folks back? What is she basing that on? These folks seem to forget which party voted against civil rights of the ’60s.
Democrats have caused the slums in Detroit (and cities all over this country) with over 50 years of control. How many more years do you have to keep giving the power to the them before you figure out that they aren’t working FOR your betterment?
And on another related topic: Rubio has scared the besjesus out of the democrats. Prime example is this Meeks/Crist/Clinton/Obama stand off. Who asked who to quit the race, when did they ask, and why?
I think they are more afraid of Rubio than they are of Michele Bachmann. Rubio is the face of a president and they know it. Rubio is the greatest hope of many Republicans and not just in Florida. If he were running today, he’d have my vote. He is the inheritor of the great communicator.
And on just one more topic:
In Connecticut today, and as I’ve seen at all democrat rallies this year, there are signs with the Obama brand on them. He says this election is not about him but his symbol is everywhere at these rallies. It’s a loser and yet, they still flash it around. What I really think is that this is for him, this is the start of the ’12 race. We are going to see him do – for the next 2 years – what he does best: campaign. He can’t govern but he sure can campaign.
