John Edwards embarrasses even sleaze-bags

January 26, 2010

Sure, he’ll admit admit little Frances Quinn is his child by Rielle Hunter… after a year of lying about it. But pay for his toddler’s dental work?

Forget it.

And this walking, talking pustule came close to being vice-president and had a reasonable chance at the Democratic nomination for president? Excuse me while I go find the nearest church and light several candles in thanks for us not being stuck with the living incarnation of Elmer Gantry.

(Via Ace. Sure, it’s the Enquirer. But, remember, they were right all along about the affair and illegitimate child.)

As comfortable as an old shoe

January 26, 2010

What do Democrats do when they get bad news about their economic policies? Why, slip right back into that old favorite, “blame Bush:”

The CBO has a new report predicting huge deficits, a slow economic recovery, and a $75 billion cost overrun on President Obama’s stimulus package.

…Democrats are taking a page out of David Plouffe’s playbook: Blame the other guy.

House Democratic leaders said a report by the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) showing a $1.35 trillion deficit in 2010 was the result of policies put in place by President George W. Bush and Republicans in Congress…”90 percent of the projected deficit is due to the cost of the Bush economic collapse and Bush policies like his unpaid for tax cuts for the wealthy,” said House Democratic Caucus Chairman John Larson (Conn.).

It gets old to say this, but Democrats have controlled the Congress since 2007 and the White House since last year. And the stimulus package was their pet project, supposedly needed to keep unemployment at  eight percent. (It’s currently over 10%.) They’re the ones who pushed for it, and it is not just a failure, but a budget-busting nightmare.

Sorry guys, but, after more than a year in total control… You broke it, you own it.


It’s all the Jews’ fault

January 26, 2010

Let’s see. The Jews are behind a worldwide conspiracy, they murder people to steal their organs, they are the eternal enemies of the Muslims (according to Qur’an 5:82 ), and they have the power to cause earthquakes. So, it’s not surprising that they must be responsible for wife-beating by Palestinian Arabs.

What is surprising is that this garbage was printed in the once-respectable British medical journal, Lancet:

The Lancet researchers operated in exceedingly bad faith both academically and politically. For example, they write: “Occupation policies, including a separation barrier that is being erected in various parts of the West Bank, affect family connectedness, depriving women of regular contact with their families who might otherwise intervene to prevent intimate-partner violence.”

Palestinian, Arab, and Muslim families do not intervene when a husband is beating a wife. On the contrary. Both the husband’s family and the wife’s own family view this as a husband’s right or as a wife’s fault. These researchers have got to know that. Thus, they are playing to western naivete or ignorance about this by claiming the Israeli road blockades are stopping such imaginary, pro-woman family interventions.

The author, Phyllis Chesler, is an American Jewish feminist who is well-familiar with the miserable state of women in the Muslim world. She points out the political agenda and bias in the Lancet article, evident from the funding sources for the research, the lack of any consideration of domestic violence in Israeli homes that may be a result of war-stress, and the lack of any consideration of Arab-Muslim domestic violence in countries not “occupied” by the Israelis.

In passing Chesler connects this to the earlier, and now disgraced, Lancet study that exaggerated Iraqi casualties after the Anglo-American liberation, a report that had a clear political agenda. It seems this “domestic violence” article is likewise a piece of propaganda.
