…but this is ridiculous.

Jealousy is a terrible thing.

Update: Stacy is such a wallflower on stuff like this.

“Earnestness”? You complain about being accused of earnestness, you demented poofter? After you’ve spent more than 15 months pushing that lunatic Trig Truther nonsense?

You are a dope-smoking, contagion-spreading menace to society, Andrew Sullivan, and you ought to be immediately deported.

Nothing like a nice diplomatic discussion, be careful Robert Sullivan’s syndrome is catchy.

Update 2: Mike Potemra puts it better:

Andrew Sullivan is, on many issues, an interesting writer. But when it comes to this hobby-horse, it wouldn’t even be accurate to say that he has let Sarah Palin jiu-jitsu him; no, what’s happening here is that he is jiu-jitsuing himself — an act of which Sarah Palin is the most conspicuous beneficiary.

His full post on the matter is awesome.

Seriously you can’t make stuff like this up:

Top Obama donor and fundraiser Jodie Evans met with the Taliban in Afghanistan on a recent trip there, according to a report by Jane Fonda of a discussion she had with Evans last month. The meeting with the Taliban took place just weeks before Evans was videotaped directly handing to President Barack Obama a package of information about her trip to Afghanistan at a high dollar fundraiser in San Francisco.

Let’s quote Fonda directly:

I sat next to Jodie who told me a little about her recent trip to Afghanistan with an American delegation that included a retired colonel, and member the State Department. While there, she met with people ranging from the brother of President Karzai, Afghan members of Parliament, activists, to warlords and members of the Taliban. Jodie is co-founder of the peace organization, Code Pink, and always willing to go to any lengths to try and find out what’s really going on.

Gee meeting with our enemies when we are at war with them. It looks like Jane hasn’t changed all that much in 40 years. I guess this is the new Vietnam after all.

The fact that I am seeing this just before going to a meeting concerning the eleven-eleven campaign breaks the irony meter and turns my stomach. Our failure to arrest Fonda for Treason 40 years ago is still paying dividends.

Just remember Evans is part of the Obama fund raising crew. Would she get away with it under President McCain?

Never forget we did this to ourselves and as always we get the government we deserve.

Update: Just to clarify my eleven-eleven meetings are all with local people about getting involved, they are not “national meetings” after all I’m just an unemployed tech guy.

Update 2: Gateway had this yesterday and I didn’t see it. Apparently neither did the MSM. (shock!)

Update 3: The president now says he’s restored America’s standing, are we standing up or bowing down. Combined with this I’m in danger or a going Kryten moment. Is Legal Insurrection right that this is his “Mission Accomplished” moment?

Update 4: Finally found an embeddable clip:

…I wonder he will say about this:

Nazi Germany celebrated Christmas without Christ with the help of swastika tree baubles, ‘Germanic’ cookies and a host of manufactured traditions, a new exhibition has shown.

The way the celebration was gradually taken over and exploited for propaganda purposes by Hitler’s Nazis is detailed in a new exhibition.

Gee where have we seen this before. Clayton Cramer expands on it and gives Jonah Goldberg a pat:

This doesn’t surprise me particularly. I recently finished reading Jonah Goldberg’s Liberal Fascism. He makes the claim that the Nazis removed prayer from German public schools in 1935, for a similar reason. I have not had a chance to spot check Goldberg’s claims, but I this does generally fit. National Socialism was derived from progressivism, and shared many of its most obnoxious traits: hostility towards religion, and especially Judeo-Christian beliefs; support for eugenics; government control over the economy; hostility towards free market capitalism.

Is anyone surprised by this? I’m sure it’s just a coincidence.

A: They were both considered “indispensable” men just about a year ago.

The president is now below 50% according to Quinnipiac. Looks to me they are both “indefensible” men now as .
