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 🙂

After Waterboarding, Mancow Submits to 9/11-Style Attack

From the “fairly unbalanced”, but always entertaining, ScrappleFace:

After Waterboard, Mancow Submits to 9/11-Style Attack
by Scott Ott for ScrappleFace

(2009-05-23) — After submitting himself to waterboarding, then calling it ‘absolutely torture’, WLS talkradio host Erich ‘Mancow’ Muller announced that next week on his show he’ll stand by a shattered window in a burning office tower and decide whether to jump or to perish in the flames.

Like the waterboarding experiment, the simulated 9/11 attack will occur under controlled circumstances, with firefighters and paramedics standing by to rescue him once he makes the choice of death by inferno or death by sidewalk impact.

“I just want to find out if being trapped in a burning skyscraper is as bad as that horrible waterboarding was,” said Mancow. “It’s hard to imagine anything worse than waterboarding. I’m pretty confident that I can withstand the searing heat of jet fuel combustion as I cling to a window frame 900 feet above the street.”

The radio personality told his listeners that after several seconds of waterboard torture he would “confess to anything.”

An unnamed spokesman for the CIA said he’s glad to hear that, “especially if Mr. Mancow were a known terrorist and would confess to his plans to attack civilians in other American cities — plans that we could then interrupt, preventing the death of thousands of people.”
