has aides claiming they didn't understand a warning about Paterson:
They were referring to Paterson's extramarital dalliances, past drug use and penchant for late-night clubbing. But Spitzer's people didn't get the message.
"We didn't know what 'hard partying' even meant," a former top Spitzer aide confessed to The Post. "Our idea of fun is to go exercise. The thinking was, 'He enjoys partying -- that's nice!' "
My question is, how many people do they actually think are going to believe this crap? You jerk, your boss is buying thousand-dollar-per-hour hookers and such, and you don't know 'partying' doesn't refer to the gym? Please.
On the level of either idiocy or dementia, we have Mikey Moore:
...Each morning you and I will do 100 jumping jacks and you will repeat after me:
"THE AMERICAN PEOPLE ELECTED ME, NOT THE REPUBLICANS, TO RUN THE COUNTRY! I AM IN CHARGE! I WILL ORDER ALL OBSTRUCTIONISTS OUTTA MY WAY! IF THE AMERICAN PEOPLE DON'T LIKE WHAT I'M DOING THEY CAN THROW MY ASS OUT IN 2012. IN THE MEANTIME, I CALL THE SHOTS ON THEIR BEHALF! NOW, CONGRESS, DROP AND GIVE ME 50!!"
Interesting, isn't it? In Moore's world(much like Obama) "I won" is supposed to mean "I can do and get whatever I want"; except when it's a President he doesn't like, in which case he's SUPPOSED to be opposed on everything...
I have a question on this story. Insty puts it BIGOTS: WaPo Female Condom Story Omits Gays. Related item here. Fighting AIDS and such is fine, sounds dandy; so that means tax money being used to give hookers various condoms? It means passing out female condoms at gay bars and such? Why the hell is it necessary to provide the stuff to people who're apparently too stupid, lazy, cheap or uncaring to buy or use their own?
For that matter, from the Legal Insurrection link, The move is an official acknowledgment of the futility of relying solely on the use of male condoms, which have been distributed citywide for nearly a decade, to stem the District's epidemic of HIV and AIDS. Officials said they are turning to female condoms to give women more power to protect themselves from HIV and sexually transmitted diseases when their partners refuse to use protection.
Uh, how about the women saying "You don't wear one, we don't do it"? Or is that somehow not an option?
Socialized medicine is Obama's Stalingrad as opposed to Waterloo. Interesting.
Saw this a couple of days ago, still strikes me the same way: Hey, Crawford, how does it feel to be on the receiving end of bullshit accusations of racism?
But it is not all about me. . . .Free speech is under attack. Let me give you a few other examples. As you perhaps know, one of my heroes, the Italian author Oriana Fallaci had to live in fear of extradition to Switzerland because of her anti-Islam book 'The Rage and the Pride'. The Dutch cartoonist Nekschot was arrested in his home in Amsterdam by 10 police men because of his anti-Islam drawings. Here in Britain, the American author Rachel Ehrenfeld was sued by a Saudi businessman for defamation. In the Netherlands Ayaan Hirsi Ali and in Australia two Christian pastors were sued. I could go on and on. Ladies and gentlemen, all throughout the West freedom loving people are facing this ongoing 'legal jihad'. This is Islamic 'lawfare'. And, ladies and gentlemen, not long ago the Danish cartoonist Westergaard was almost assassinated for his cartoons.
Ladies and gentlemen, we should defend the right to freedom of speech. . . .I believe it is our obligation to preserve the inheritance of the brave young soldiers that stormed the beaches of Normandy. That liberated Europe from tyranny. . . .As George Orwell said: "If liberty means anything at all, it means the right to tell people what they do not want to hear".
Speaking to the Pacific Council on International Policy in Los Angeles, Ambassador to Pakistan Anne Patterson outlined a "nightmare scenario" in which people holding U.S. passports receive terrorist training then return legally to the U.S. to commit violent acts.
"They can easily infiltrate back into the United States and, frankly, we don't know what to do about them," Patterson said. "We think there are more out there than we know about."
Hey, that's reassuring. Just soak that part up for a minute: We don't know what to do about them. The system is working!
Good to see all that "outreach" to Obama's Muslim buds is paying dividends.
Damn. Sandra Bullock won Best Actress. Don't see many movies, but I do believe she deserved it: The Blind Side was one of the best I have seen in a long time, and her performance was a very big part of it.
And some of the consequences of widespread abortion or killing of female babies.
