Cruising Along the Bloggy Highway 6/4/09

Notes from my rest stops…….

Conservative Hot Air liked Obama’s Cairo speech by reviewing the entire speech and not depending on sound bytes and youtube clips. Also, I never miss peeking at the Obamateurism of the Day and today’s is a doozy of O’hypocrisy…..Obama not wanting to ask people for money (during a recession!) to help Hillary retire her campaign debt, but flies to Vegas to help Reid raise funds for his campaign during this very same recession!

Over at The Daily Beast, Mark McKinnon handicaps 11 Republicans for 2012—and explains why Obama might not be a lock for two terms.

Not Your Sweetie reads the tabloids so we don’t have to !

Greta Van Susteren’s Gretawire has a new format. Let her know what you think! I love when she liveblogs from the road and sends photos of behind the scenes of her show. No wonder she’s beating the ratings pants off AC360, her show’s “on” 24/7 !

RedState’s James Richardson reports that almost 3,000 “dead” Minnesota voters cast ballots for Coleman or Franken last fall. Developing…….uh huh, ACORN is mentioned in the article too.

NYT’s blog, The Caucus, reports that while the President was taping his formal interview with NBC news anchor Brian Williams, Obama also fit in a “spoof interview” for The Tonight Show’s Conan O’Brien. Will we be able to tell which is which?

Alegre’s Corner discusses Obama’s “gaping hole” in his Cairo speech and a missed opportunity to bring up violence against women and girls in Muslim countries and stand up for women’s rights. Heartbreaking.

myiq2xu at The Confluence takes us on The Low Road 2008 pointing out the ten lowest points of fauxrage of the 2008 Democratic Primary. We must never forget.

Are you outraged by waterboarding as torture? Then don’t click here. You might change your mind.

Stray Yellar Dog does a kick ass radio interview about Independents-formerly-known-as-Democrats , Pumas, The New Agenda and her Hillary Supporters for Sarah Palin group at Team Sarah. About 15 minutes, so grab a cuppa and enjoy.

I had no idea Fox News ratings were better than ALL the other news channels COMBINED TOTAL. Here’s proof.

This was fun! Obviously, I much rather read blogs than write them 🙂

Torture2: While Obama muddles message, Crowder’s “beheaded”.

And Politico tries to make sense of Obama’s confusing torture message for the left and right to sort out. Why not grab some popcorn?

Speaking about torture, let’s talk baby seals.

Kathleen Parker received a hakapik in the mail from PETA and wrote about it:

It is probably reasonable to assume that I’m the only person on my block to be the un-proud possessor of the aptly named bludgeoning and hacking instrument used to slaughter baby seals. ‘Tis the season.

While some of us were at our Tea Parties last Wednesday, Obama was waffling over CIA torture, Lynndie England was still in jail, another event was taking place, well to the north of all of us, in the name of “well, it’s a living”.

Parker’s article is a tough read, but there does look like there’s some good news for the innocents:

In the meantime, market and other forces seem to be tilting favorably toward the baby seals. Pelt prices are down from $100 per animal in 2006 to just $15 this year, thus undermining claims of the seals’ economic importance.

PETA has a video, don’t watch it. Just stop wearing any kind of animal fur. As with any animal related for profit industry, there’s torture involved.

The Sea Shepherd has a very good activist page, write some letters!

Special thanks to bipartisanship in the U.S. Congress (what a concept!):

Pressures, meanwhile, are mounting across the border where U.S. Sens. Carl Levin, D-Mich., and Susan Collins, R-Maine, recently introduced a resolution urging the Canadian government to end the commercial seal hunt.

Parker concludes:

As of March 18, Russia has banned its own seal hunt after the bear-hunting Vladimir Putin called sealing a “bloody industry.” And the European Parliament has adopted a declaration banning commercial seal products (but still allows for traditional hunting, e.g. Inuit).

Come on, Canada. See things Putin’s way and I’ll donate my hakapik to the museum of your choice.

I agree. That is, until baby seals become a threat to humans and show up on a DHS “watch list”, leave ’em alone.
