Oh Please! Oh Please! Oh Pleeeeeze!!!

Let it be so!!

Gore to announce Presidential bid at the Academy Awards? (Assuming, of course, he gets to make an acceptance speech if his ninety-six minute Powerpoint presentation wins for "Best Documentary").

That would be just perfect.

Aw, Dagnabit!

Lurch is out of the contest.

Guess he just wasn't master of his domain.

The 2008 race just got less fun. :-(

Does Nancy Pelosi Have Tourette's?

Blinking 25-30 times per minute is a symptom, as Wizbang points out.

Might be medication time.

Quote Of The Day

"The Kennedy inaugural was the single . . . speech that brought me into public life. Those famous words 'Pay any price, bear any burden, meet any hardship, support any friend, oppose any foe, in order to assure the survival and the success of liberty.' That's what it has meant to me to be a Democrat."
- Sen. Joe Lieberman

I second that. Though I was not born when that speech was made it was the one that most influenced my early (and former) identification with the Democrat party.

Unfortunately, the commitment to "the survival and the success of liberty" has been absent from that party's national identity for some time. And it's not likely to return anytime soon.

That's So High School

MSNBC/Newsweek's Howard Fineman has a fun column up this morning where he compares the current posturing of Democrat 2008 hopefuls to silly high school intrigue.

At the end he gets in a nice dig at Shrillary:

"[Hillary Clinton] was impressively presidential in her studious, almost censorious, way—carefully attired in deep red, her tone competent, severe and ready to take on all comers.

Yet she also was the kid we know from high school: the one who claims to be the only “adult” in the 11th grade. Sometimes they are cheered. Sometimes they are booed. Sometimes—and this is the worst fate—they get laughed at silently."

Heh.

Disgraceful

According to a FoxNews poll, when asked if they personally wanted the Iraq plan that President Bush recently announced to succeed (question #19) 49% of registered Democrats responded either "No" or "I Don't Know".

Hugh Hewitt says it best:

I would love to hear why losing in Iraq would be in the national interest. And I would love to hear the humanitarian justification for leaving Baghdad’s civilians to the tender mercies of the murderous militias and terrorists that stalk that city.

And I would also love to hear Democratic leaders respond to these poll numbers. But I won’t hold my breath.

But don't you dare question their patriotism.

Chris Dodd Is Running For President

Per an announcement on the "Imus In The Morning" show. Don Imus is a friend of Dodd's and is probably the only person who really cares.

Chris Dodd is Joe Biden without the stunning personality.

I can visualize the conversation with his associate in the Senate later today: more...

In The Spirit Of Bipartisanship Appeasing Moonbats

Ankle-biters Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid are already making demands on troop levels.

Good thing neither of them is Commander-In-Chief, eh?

Tell you what, kids. You go and try and pass your little minimum wage bill or whatever else you have planned. The President will worry about troop levels. It's his job, not yours.

Frankenstein's Moonbat

Well, here comes the new Democrat Majority to kick off the new Congress with a press conference, and guess who shows up?

Media whore "Peace Mom" Cindy Sheehan and her merry band of anti-war protesters. (At the link is the video of them shouting down Rahm Emanuel - priceless).

Standing in front of the microphones, Democrat leaders looked very uncomfortable and gave each other sidelong glances as if to say "Um, what the f@#& is she doing here?" Sheehan and company weren't interested in the domestic policies that Dems intend to try and ram through over the next two weeks. Nor, I suspect, are many of the other Leftoids who erroneously claim credit for the Congress' recent change of control.

Finally, Emanuel and the others had to retreat back to the caucus room to hide and wait for the rowdy bunch to go away.

Um, Rahm. I don't think they're going away anytime soon. Hey, you guys helped create this monster, now you're going to have to deal with it.

UPDATE:
Sister Toldjah has the money-quote:

"If your party can’t stand up to being confronted by hostile moonbat ’supporters’ like Cindy Sheehan what does that say about your ability (or lack thereof?) to stand up to Al Qaeda?"
UPDATE DEUX:
Thanks to JAron for the inspiration:

"Holy Christ! It's Mother Sheehan! Run away!!! Run Away!!!
