Surprising

The Associated Press, infamous for whitewashing terrorists, does a surprisingly good article on the rise of Salafist Islam: Ultraconservative Islam on rise in Mideast.

Ethics laws? What are those?

October 19, 2008

Did Barack Obama (Hope! Change! Share the wealth waffles!) violate Illinois ethics laws by taking speaking fees as a state senator?

Hey, this is Chicago we’re talking about.

As Ace points out, this story has been known since March, but the media has been strangely quiet about it. Yet they go into a frenzy over Sarah Palin’s complaints about an abusive state trooper who threatened her family, and her perfectly legal dismissal of a Alaska cabinet member who serves at her pleasure.

Media bias? Don’t be silly.

Oh, and that bit about The One and ethics laws? Only a racist would bring it up. Phbbbttt

 


Connecting the dots

Obama, Ayers, Wright, and ACORN.

RELATED: Just a guy in the neighborhood? Zombie tracks down the Prophet Barack’s endorsement of Ayers’ book. The key thing to take away from this is not that Obama endorsed a far-left book by a far-left ex-terrorist (though that’s bad enough), but it once again shows that Obama is a serial liar.
