Bush Chimp v Obama Chimp: Chimp News Update

February 22, 2009

There was a a lot of comment on our earlier postings: Bush Chimp vs Obama Chimp and Chimp Story Has Legs…. The recent horrific chimp attack in Connecticut and the chimp cartoon in the NY Post prompted a flurry of new postings across the blogosphere. A sampling, some serious and some humorous follows (not always sure which is supposed to be funny and which is not):

GasBag Keith Olberman weighs in with Al Sharpton

Rev David Mannings take:

The View Goes Overboard….

David Drake says it’s again a case of the left seeing racism where it doesn’t exist.

From an L.A. Times Op/Ed:

    …it was obvious that the monkey was supposed to represent the Washington establishment that produced the unwieldy legislation passed by Congress and signed by President Obama.

Glenn Beck: Dark Knight = W

August 4, 2008

(Disclaimer: I have not seen the movie)

Blurb in an email about today’s Glenn Beck show, which I didn’t hear. Glenn apparently loved the latest Batman:

Glenn saw the movie Dark Knight this weekend and absolutely loved it. But more than that, he couldn’t believe what he was seeing: a movie with a conservative message on the war on terror. Glenn was in shock and says this movie was at times ‘orgasmic material’ for conservatives. While Glenn disagrees with President Bush on many different things, he absolutely admires and appreciates the fact that George W. Bush is willing to be hated in order to do the right thing. Glenn is confident that as time goes by, people will remember Bush as a visionary for what he has done in the war on terror.

Radio Program transcript here.

My daughter, who has seen the movie disagrees:

I would encourage anyone who thinks that “Dark Knight” is trying to make some sort of parallel between Batman and W to remember that it’s a movie based on a comic book. What makes for a great story line and engaging plot in the dark magical world of the theater does not necessarily equate to sound political decisions in the real world. Definitely not Batman, I would say W is more of a JOKER.

Treachery 5, Rule of Law 4: Defeat for the Nation….

June 13, 2008

Making law from the bench, five out of control, radical leftist Supreme Court justices* ignored the constitution and precedent to allow overseas detained terrorists, “unlawful enemy combatants”,access to civilian courts here at home. Never before in our history as a nation have prisoners of war been entitled to constitutional protections. Constitutional scholar, and one of our best legal minds, Mark Levin has this to say about the tragic decision:

“….what was once considered inconceivable is now compelled by the Constitution, or so five justices have ruled. I fear for my country. I really do. And AP, among others, reports this story as a defeat for “the Bush administration.” Really? I see it as a defeat for the nation.”

I am publishing the entire Levin piece below; it is deserving of a wide audience.

The Gitmo Defeat [Mark R. Levin]

While I am still reviewing the 5-4 decision written by Anthony Kennedy, apparently giving GITMO detainees access to our civilian courts, at the outset I am left to wonder whether all POWs will now have access to our civilian courts? After all, you would think lawful enemy combatants have a better claim in this regard than unlawful enemy combatants. And if POWs have access to our civilian courts, how do our courts plan to handle the thousands, if not tens of thousands of cases, that will be brought to them in future conflicts?

It has been the objective of the left-wing bar to fight aspects of this war in our courtrooms, where it knew it would have a decent chance at victory. So complete is the Court’s disregard for the Constitution and even its own precedent now that anything is possible. And what was once considered inconceivable is now compelled by the Constitution, or so five justices have ruled. I fear for my country. I really do. And AP, among others, reports this story as a defeat for “the Bush administration.” Really? I see it as a defeat for the nation.

UPDATE: The 5-4 GITMO decision brings to the front, yet again, John McCain’s position on judges versus his own policies. McCain undoubtedly supports the 5-4 decision, yet the justices who voted against it, and argued strenuously against it, are of the kind McCain claims to want on the bench. We have seen the same issue arise respecting campaign finance. This is not to say that McCain won’t nominate originalists to the bench. But if he does, he will be nominating to the Court individuals who are better adherents to the Constitution than he is.

Meanwhile, the always predictable Bush hating New York Slimes editorializes today with the heading: Justice 5, Brutality 4!

Reviewing Scott McClellan….

May 31, 2008

This is an interesting, and humorous, clip montage of Scott McClellan’s press secretary career:

The McClellans, Father and Son: Selling the Story….

May 28, 2008

Former Bush White House press secretary Scott McClellan follows in dad Barr McClellan’s footsteps with yet another dredging of the presidential politics depths. Barr McClellan failed miserably in his attempt to pin the JFK assassination on LBJ. Published by the obscure Hanover House, the book, Blood, Money, and Power drew severe criticism and its message fell on deaf ears. Scott McClellan’s book, the just out What Happened…?, is another matter entirely as it feeds into the blood thirst of the rabid anti-Bush folks, increasingly numerous indeed. Sure to become a major bestseller, the Scott McClellan book seems transparently to follow Dad McClellan’s scandalmongering ways. Whereas Blood, Money, and Power failed utterly, What Happened? seems likely to payoff big time for Scott the Snitch.

Bush Chimp vs Obama Chimp….

Bush Chimp vs Obama Chimp….

How come this is OK…..

…But this isn’t….

A bunch of people in Marietta, Georgia were protesting this one; it is a tee shirt sold by a bar owner who says he has no racist intent, merely thinks the resemblance between Obama and Curious George is humorous. I agree, the big ears, the big smile, uncanny! Look what “W” had to put up with going on 8 years. What do you think?

Video here, “how African-Americans have been deplicted
Funny video here where TV interviewer tries to get seller to admit he’s racist. It doesn’t work!
