There it is

Last month I wrote this:

Until the Governor is removed or the laws changed he has the right to appoint a replacement, absent evidence of wrongdoing it is legal and should stand.

It is a bit distasteful but there are many things in life that are distasteful. Of course if evidence is presented that there is something corrupt in this appointment then the senate can take action but for now the law is what it is.

Well now that we have some evidence it will be up to the senate to decide if there is some there there.

No more west wing

I think one of the reasons why our friends on the left seem to have a rose colored look at the world is their perception of the White House.

We’ve had the American president, We’ve had Dave, and we’ve had the West wing and let me tell you. You have people who actually think that our democratic friends are riding white horses to save the world.

They see Barak as all of those people in all of those roles and are willing to buy what is being sold.

I once asked if Obama was Pumpsie Green, apparently he is Pumpsie Green with Scott Boras as his agent.

Barbarian bottom line

Mark Steyn gets to the heart of the matter concerning the head of a TV network out to combat the negative public image of Muslims who has beheaded his wife in Buffalo:

Look at the late Aasiya Hassan, beautifully coiffed, glossy-lipped. On countless occasions since 9/11, I’ve found myself at lunch or dinner in New York, London, Washington, Paris or some other western city, sitting next to a modern Muslim woman like Mrs Hassan telling me how horrified she is at how hijabs and burqas, honor killings and genital mutilation, forced cousin marriages and the disproportionate number of Muslim wives in European battered women’s shelters, how all these have come to define Muslim womanhood in the 21st century. Yet Aasiya Hassan ended up no differently

That bottom line is whole point. Apparently the national media sees no story here however.

Update: The Reclusive Leftist asks where the blogisphere is on this story. Well the right side of it is present and reporting for duty.

Update 2: Glenn Reynolds nails it:

HEADLESS BODY in Legless Story. If a Mormon had done this, it would be all over the news. Or a Baptist.

The perfect metaphor

Considering our last post this is the perfect metaphor for the Obama administration so far:

They had HOPE, but were only left with CHANGE…

These Obama coins mimic the current administration, looks pretty but not only are looks only skin deep but the costs are a lot more than you were led to believe.

UPDATE: Gateway Pundit Agrees
