January 6: Epiphany
Political correctness is a doctrine, fostered by a delusional, illogical minority, and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end --- R. J. Wiedemann LtCol. USMC Ret.

You go to war with the TSA you have.
Christopher Dodd will retire!!!! That's the good news. The bad news is these guys who are leaving have no reason to vote the way their constituents want.
A Brief 2010 Republican Midterm Platform
Obama was intended by Democrats to be the post-partisan leader who would energize and inspire Americans. Instead, he seems to flounder when confronted with actual decisions. He surrounds himself with incompetent fans like Desiree Rogers and Janet Napolitano rather than serious administrators. Obama has charm, but he has overused that charm, and now it bores and irritates rather than delights.
In either house Republicans control, adopt a new rule which would prohibit voting on any bill unless the entire language of the bill has been made public at least thirty days prior to the vote. End all hidden dealings on federal legislation and last-minute amendments, and allow a real national debate on any new federal legislation in the exact form of its ultimate enactment. Adding pork into crevices of vast bills is simply a way to buy votes. Obama vaguely promised to oppose this, and then he broke his word. Republicans must absolutely guarantee uncluttered congressional bills.
Scott Ott Here's troubling, and telling, sentence: "The president is finding that the reshaping of his security policy to deal with threats from al-Qaeda is leading to difficult decisions as he seeks to balance his own intentions with the security realities."
Scott Ott says: One would think that our commander in chief would not have intentions at variance with reality when it comes to security.

Darkness Reigns: 0bama and the Vampire Congress.
Shaz offers fine food and a test for your GPS. Well, that answers the question if it's still open. It really is out of the way.
America Rising (neat.)
Not much to report today. I went over to church, had a nice chat with Father and with the lady who decorates the altar. We took Pharaoh in for his checkup and shots. He weighs a tish over 50 pounds and doesn't have worms. I crockpotted a sort-of goulash. Yum. Farmville is broken again. Grumble. I had lots of Christmas gifts yet to sort out (in Farmville).
So wrong. So very very wrong.
AIDS really does bad things to one's mind.
If they wanted your opinion, they'd ask. Hey, I know where Wauwatosa is!
As Instapundit says, the country's in the very best of hands.
0bama's Obvious Disdain for all of us:
President Obama is a man of breathtaking self-regard and self-absorption. As many have noted, he can hardly give a speech without eulogizing himself and intimating that his Presidency marks a watershed in American, if not world history. In the same fashion, he seems to take a certain malicious — one might even say, childish — pleasure in humiliating his rivals and underlings.
