…as right wing.

But that day will be when they decide that actual fact is more important than the narrative.

The problem with this type of tactic by the left is that with the invention and propagation of the internet the facts become available to the average American with very little effort and more importantly via blogs and e-mail they can be distributed with very little effort. Thus an attempt to play dupe the public fails under scrutiny.

Until the media actually starts to understand that they will continue to hemorrhage readership until like MSNBC they are left with a leftist core to sustain themselves. At that point their bias like MSNBC will simply serve to support and reinforce their niche market that remains as they fight for those few viewers willing to pay.

Until and unless they choose to leave their echo chamber they are doomed.

The Verdict is in. St. Anthony’s lives!

but several other parishes were not so lucky:

He said the four new parishes will be as follows:
• St. Bernard’s Parish worshipping at St. Camillus de Lellis Church and serving the northern part of the city.
• St. Anthony Parish at St. Anthony Church serving the downtown area.
• St. Joseph Parish at St. Joseph Church serving West Fitchburg, including the Cleghorn neighborhood.
• St. Francis Parish at St. Francis Church serving the south and east neighborhoods of the city.

“The patrimony, including assets and liabilities of St. Camillus de Lellis Parish and St. Bernard Parish, which includes St. Bernard Elementary School and St. Bernard Cemetery, will all be part of the new St. Bernard Parish at St. Camillus Church. The patrimony and traditions of Immaculate Conception, Sacred Heart of Jesus, Madonna of the Holy Rosary, as well as their assets and liabilities, will be assumed by the other three newly established parishes,” the bishop wrote.

I was a little surprised at St. Joseph considering many activities had been combined with St. Anthony’s lately however it is a bigger church than Holy Rosary so that might have been an important factor in the decision.

I would be a liar if I didn’t say I was relieved but I feel sorry for the others.

Update: I guess Robert Stacy McCain’s picked the right parish to visit didn’t he?

…first there was DaScienceGuy, and now there is DaHospitalityGuy.

Is there any limit to this meme, and more importantly can I make a buck off of this somehow?

Welcome to the land of the blogging DaHospitalityGuy. (Partial disclosure, I do know him personally).

…a tea party in South Carolina but Katherine Jenerette was there and provided a few photos via her facebook account.

Local coverage is provided here:

Seven of the Republican candidates vying for the 1st Congressional District seat being vacated by Henry Brown spoke at the event, including Mark Lutz, S.C. Rep. Tim Scott, Carroll Campbell III, Stovall Witte, Katherine Jenerette, Larry Kobrovsky, and Clark Parker. Each repeated core principals of the tea party throughout the event, including smaller government, less spending, Christian values and a stronger national defense, often to a crowd-wide positive response.

As for Jenerette:

North Myrtle Beach resident Jenerette, a military officer who has run for Republican office several times, said she was running for Congress to stand up against big spending, complicated legislation, and to repeal the 16th and 17th Amendments to the Constitution.

She also argued against firearms registration and conceal and carry permits.

It’s hard to stand out in such a crowded field, I think Jenerette’s decision to attend CPAC and to rub elbows with bloggers like myself was a very good move in that respect. That is a question of showing initiative. It would certainly have been worth the while of the other potential candidates to do so.

Of course being on the right side of the tea party groups never hurts either.
