Anyway, there have been some stories that I've been following. This Gibson guitar thing is just bizarre. Powerline has a great encapsulation of the whole thing if you're behind the curve like I've been. And the Michelle Obama twist makes even more crazy. Gotta love it. Doesn't the DoJ have anything else to do besides harass one of the few companies that still produces an American product? Major fail.
Elsewhere, this post by Doug Powers is enough to make one's skin crawl. "Federal family"? Really? Doug:
If my “family” was $14 trillion in debt I’d put myself up for adoption. Oh, and the “federal family” member who would have normally caught the spelling error in “preperations” was out tending to family, so we can forgive that oversight.
This has helped soften the image of the federal government to such a degree that the IRS is now considering referring to themselves as America’s “little audit buddies.”
Seriously. Skin creepy crawlies.
And then we have Darryl Hannah getting arrested at the White House for a another Hannah-esque liberal unicorns and rainbows sit-in:
"Sometimes it's necessary to sacrifice your freedom for a greater freedom," Hannah said in Lafayette Park before her arrest. "And we want to be free from the horrible death and destruction that fossil fuels cause, and have a clean energy future."The video at the link is just bizarre; Hannah is arrested and frisked to a round of thunderous applause and chants of "Darryl, Darryl, Darryl!" She beams and basks in the moment like a red carpet event. Irrelevant celebrities I can do without.
All I have to say about this one is that streaks were made to be broken.
And finally, the tale of Obama's Uncle Omar gets weirder and weirder. The Boston Herald reports today that Uncle Omar had a valid Social Security number even though he's an illegal alien ordered to be deported. How'd that happen? Mark Krikorian explains how it could have happened.
Oh and one last thing: I watched the George Bush interview about 9/11 on Nat Geo last night. Powerful stuff. Powerful. Catch it if you get a chance; it was well done.
