Sellebrity Saturday: Robin Williams

My all-time favorite line from "Beavis and Butthead" was when they clicked to a vid containing Robin Williams (I think the vid was "Don't Worry, Be Happy.") "That's that dude that sucks but he talks real fast so people won't know that he sucks."

I miss "Beavis and Butthead." I will never miss Robin Williams.

Have it Your Way

Alabama physician Regina Benjamin, President Obama's nominee for surgeon general, has been paid $10,000 since last year to serve on a scientific advisory board for fast-food giant Burger King, The Washington Times reported Thursday. See the story here:

A Side Benefit of the Townhall Protests

Reluctant to face angry voters again, four Democratic senators say Cap and Trade should be set aside when the Senate takes up it's energy bill this fall. Senators Blanche Lincoln, Ben Nelson, Kent Conrad, and Byron Dorgan say in effect it's too ambitious. See the full story here:

Who is Barack Obama?

I have no idea. Does anyone else think, as I do, that this man has never been "vetted." I hate that word vetted. It annoys me when a word that is seldom used suddenly reappears and suddenly it is a favorite of the media parrots. But that is another opinion for another time.

We are approaching Obama's first 8 months in office and to me, he is still an international man of mystery. Everything about this guy is vague. I can accept that he was bon in Hawaii but even that is subject to speculation because of Obama's secrecy on the matter. As an aside, Philip Berg maintains that even if he was born in Hawaii, Obama is ineligible for POTUS because he later became an Indonesian citizen.

I thought that by now, someone in the media would have exposed Obama's school records, either at Harvard Law School, Columbia, Occidental or even his high scool records, his Illinois Bar Association records (see archives of post on his birthday, August 4 of this year) as well as a body of other occluded documents. They might also connect the dots with Rezko, Blago, Rahmbo and the entire Daley mob. They might at least investigate Franklin Raines, Jim Johnson and Fannie Mae. I'm just showing the tip of the tip of the iceberg here.

We might not be surprised that the lapdog media carried water for Obama during the election but that mission is accomplished. They turned on LBJ after annointing him. They turned on Carter after annointing him. They turned on the Clintons years after annointing them. At some point, the competitive nature of the business might spur someone to look behind the curtain. It has not happened yet.

Maybe they won't find dirty laundry. Maybe Obama's laundry is as clean as his conjured media image. Maybe. But until we find out about these things, Obama will remain a mysterious figure. Who is Barack Obama?

Speaking of Political Ineptitude

In New Mexico, 100 miles from a congressional office, citizens gather on their own to dicuss health care. Their congressman by chance is in the same town and guess who skips the meeting?
American Thinker has the story here.

Congress Flips Off The Citizenry

When we look back at this new age of activism, we will remember a few "cow kicks over the lantern" moments. One of those will be Representative Conyers stating why he can't be bothered to read a bill that's a thousand pages long (see archives.) Here is another such moment.

Barton and Waxman make a joke out of signing a bill few Congressmen have read.

Michael J. Fox Ruled Politically Obsolete

Top Democratic Party officials meeting behind closed doors in what some describe as the most contentious meeting they have ever attended voted to strip Canadian born actor and Democratic pull-toy, Michael J. Fox, of his victim status. Such a decision means Fox would face almost certain euthanasia under the Obama health care plan. "It was the hardest decision we have ever had to make wept an ashen-faced David Axelrod. "It's almost like putting down a loyal cocker spaniel. Michael had fought the good fight for stem cell research for us, he was a trusted and trusting friend and I will miss him dearly....but lately his presence in the health care debate was quite frankly an embarrassment. I mean everyone knows care for a Parkinson victim would bust almost any family budget and then there was that Canadian citizenship business and snarky Republicans asking why he couldn't go back to Canada for treatment and of course you know what a mess that system is." Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi was not so effusive in her praise noting that he regularly deceived Congress and was even seen carrying a swastika banner. A top Democratic Party official speaking off the record observed: "He was a bit like a lawn jockey I used to have. All the neighbors thought it was great when I first bought it but then almost over night they were calling me a racist It's time to move on and I'm sure Michael will understand."
Fox was unavailable for comment but friends confided that Fox had been depressed in recent weeks over his lack of political relevance.

Sunday Worship: The Mighty Sparrow...Barack the Magnificent

I like this tune. I would probably like it even more if I had a big glass of Kool-Aid to chase it down.
