Daschle provides more tax fraud on the Obama Cabinet

January 31, 2009

1

Ready for more hope and change? Tom Daschle, Obama’s choice for the Secretary of Health and Human Services, has apparently forgotten to pay $128,000 in taxes. Just another honest mistake, right? After all, this is the smoothest transition in the history of the nation, right? Right! I don’t know how anyone can claim with a straight face that […]

Democrats petition against Limbaugh in Fairness Doctrine preview

January 28, 2009

2

The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee has started an online petition against Rush Limbaugh to chastise him for comments he made last week about hoping for Obama’s failure. His words, as usual, were taken out of context – at the time, he was making the point that if it was Obama’s goal to institute socialist policies, […]

Stimulus package passes the House, 244-188

January 28, 2009

The massive stimulus package has just passed the vote in the House of Representatives. It’s extremely interesting to note that not one Republican voted for the bill, and 11 Democrats joined them in what is already being decried as a party line vote. Not that simple, no way.

At one point, he says, referring to a weeping concentration camp prisoner, “Look […]

Twenty-three years ago today, on January 28, 1986, the the Space Shuttle Challenger exploded less than two minutes after launch, killing all seven crew members. Andrea Shea King shares her own experience with the tragedy, and the Anchoress remembers too. As a space enthusiast since I was a boy, I’ve always had a soft spot […]

Obama gives his first formal interview to Al-Arabiya

January 27, 2009

Last night, President Barack Obama gave his first formal interview as President to the Arabic news network Al-Arabiya. The choice of the network doesn’t bother me that much, as President Bush gave several interviews to that network. However, to give your first interview as President to a foreign news organization does seem a bit odd to […]

Chia Obama

No, it’s not a joke. Wanna see your President’s likeness sprout greenery (in determined and happy poses)? Yes, you can. As an aside, who buys Chia Pets in general? Who finds them tactful gifts and wonderful adornments for the home? I’m serious, because I would probably rather send off for Sea Monkeys than see see […]
