New York Times conservative columnist Ross Douthat attended the Restoring Honor Rally and wrote a column on it that must've really unnevered the opinion editor, who was undoubetly forced to choose between that and the letters to the editor detailing "eyewitness" accounts from "readers" like Daureen Moud and Kaul Prugman, who saw Beck turn into a dragon and forced everyone to repent or face the hellfire clamoring for release from his demonically conservative gullet.
You can read the piece here, or you can see the concluding paragraphs, which give a pretty good idea of the direction it went in.
I know Douthat has some pretty impressive credentials, but this is supposed to pass for the conservative voice at the Times? I guess over there conservative = "medicated liberal."
Douthat was ALMOST there wasn't he? But like Biden holding a flash card of when television was really invented...
...he completely misses the point about Glenn Beck's mission. He's not trying to be the conservative Michael Moore (as stated near the beginning of his column). He's fighting for ideals that are more univeral and enduring than the result of any one election.
I don't know, he writes for the most liberal rag in the country, so maybe he's just trying to speak to them slowly...
...and dumb down the column in terms that even a Manhattan liberal can understand...
By the way, I want to apologize for not knowing of a good web-safe font to communicate "idiot" for the above questions.
The bottom line is this, Beck is the 21st century Paul Revere, not for the political world...for the spiritual one. Fighting for God in our hearts isn't the fad that tub Michael Moore turned out to be, it is SO MUCH MORE than that, and I hope Douthat knew this and was just being forced to play to his audience.

And that precludes
Horny politicians who
Only listen to
Hail from the greatest nation in all their hand
It also precludes
who live as They choose
When it all hits fan
They demand to understand
Where the hell He went
A three pronged attack
an attitude that
Leads to a Life, Christ-like Hope
You can plainly see
The fork in the road that lies before you
And you know exactly
What it is you need to do....

YES WE CAN! didn't...
yes HE can!...Will...lets begin
Congratulations and Godspeed to Glenn Beck and everyone making the Restoring Honor rally happen. To those who made it there, I am SO jealous, and have fun!
So former RNC chair and Bush campaign leader Ken Mehlman has come out of a closet that apparently had a glass door because it seems to have been the most open secret ever.
Now he's apparently expected to become some kind of poster boy for why the GOP should finally sign on to gay marriage. Which is an argument I'd much rather have than talking about ObamaCare, or our impending national bankruptcy, or anything consequential really. Why save the country when you can obsess a little more about sex?
Here's a compromise...he can be chief decoration officer for the 2012 RNC. Maybe now the GOP will get it's much needed pizazz.
Ooooh! Scratch that! He can be Prince of Pizazz!
Or Pizazz Czar!
Picture this for a TV show pitch.....Queer Eye for the Right Guy
He could even spearhead the Republican gay outreach under the banner: Red White and Fabu!
He could explain why some gays are JUST FABULOUS and others are
What a whole new world for conservatives!....Does saying pizazz a lot make you.....you know?
Seriously though why does this have to be a story? Did Ken think we needed to make his sex life a national discussion? I should have actually titled this post "Somebody Needs Attention."Add a comment
If I was unemployed and given the choice of selling sacks of crap covered quarters for a dollar apiece, commission only....without gloves...in a bikini or defending democrats, which job do you think I would want to take?
So apparently Obama had a headache and popped stupid pills instead of Tylenol, because he sent Joe Biden to respond to Minority Leader Boehner's call to fire the Obama economic team (via the Chicago Tribunes political blog The Swamp).
Now I'm talkin'!
Literally...into the ground....literally guys. For two years before the crash of 2008 the powerless GOP minority took the economy and buried it in the ground...literally...so that the democrats, in the majority and running congress, couldn't find it. This is clearly why Obama wanted the "stimulus" to produce "shovel-ready" jobs last year.
As if that's not enough. Here comes the money shot...
We are approaching a point where the world would rather use poison ivy than the dollar, spending is so out of control jealous drunken sailors want their expression back, everyone expects a double dip recession because of the impending tax hikes, and Joe Biden thinks there is NO DOUBT we are moving in the right direction?
What movie, pray tell, is that? Yeah, ok, Bush was president. But everything started turning to crappy quarters after the Dem takeover of congress in 2006, so my guess is Joey B thinks Boehner's movie is something Disney
Which begs the question if they're the anti-GOP then what the hell kind of movie have they been playing?
These pigs have been telling us to squeal for them for 4 years, and only fools mainlining MSNBC into the crater in their head where their brain would normally be believe Democrats are actually pulling us out of a ditch dug exclusively by the GOP.
If they keep this up the only demographic that will be left for them to persuade will be babies literally born yesterday.Add a comment
Check out this cartoon submitted by an anonymous cartoonist to iOwnTheWorld. If you haven't heard Disney is dealing with a controversy with an employee who is Muslim woman over wearing her head scarf (hijab).
Disneyland says she has to follow their dress code and lose the hijab, and she says no.
I can appreciate the first amendment religious freedom rational here, but if the first amendment were really the issue here then dress codes everywhere should be abolished for oppressing speech.
Bottom line, Disney is a private company and there are A LOT of other places this woman can work that won't force her to dress in a way that doesn't work for her....seriously.
I had an issue with what to wear to work once, I was so uncomfortable with an employers dress code that my career as a bikini model was over before it could even begin.
I'm filing this under "wish I thought of this!"Add a comment
There's the wisdom of Confucious....
and then there is the wisdumb of Biden....
Everyone say ObamaCare for you...NO HE DO NOT!
How do Barney Frank become Congressman, dinosaur extinct!
When Halloween come don't suggest Barack dress up like USA citizen.
soots suits because she is girl.
Botox a lot, but Pelosi wont tell what it say.
Obama tax hikes are a big f**king steal.
I say FDR was on TV in Great Depression, I wrong, TV don't have feelings.
Obama make America prison so Democrat can be hope on rope.
I never plagiarize, I don't even know rules of game.
Anthony Wiener need tell Barney it just his name.
Mrs. Biden say too much stimulus hurt her bottom line.
Barack should only fight terrorist after he learn to beat daughters at Stratego.
Hair plug tickle Cheney's brain, I don't have same problem.
I not know Tea Party not birthday celebration for Mr. T.
When Barack vacation, freedom vacation too.
Fox News like kid in school who remind teacher forget to give homework
Barack tell me as Vice President chain of command is Him, Michelle, Nancy, Hillary, Cabinet, Congress, all Governors, Sasha, Malia, Mrs. Biden, ladies on The View, Lindsay Lohan, THEN me...then China.
Approval ratings should be like golf score so Barack feel better.
I could see the potential for people being offended for mocking a Chinese persons broken English...I want to make clear that's not at all what I was doing

While I hate having to do this, but it must be said I'm not a "birther." This idea popped in my head and I just had to do it.

While recently assuring that election night is going to be rosier for Democrats than most people think Biden had this to say about the alternative to Democrats growth of government and previously unachieved trillion dollar deficits
....Ummmm....In the past we spent less money, had less debt, and more jobs...even if we put all three of these on steriods the GOP's batting average would be .333 points better than how the Dems are currently doing.
Is it just me or is it blindingly obvious that the Dems have absolutely nothing to run on? I know this is REALLY over simplifying things, but even in the simplest terms the facts just aren't on their side.
They keep talking about the past in these abstract terms and assigning blame to an out-of-luck lame duck GOP president for a recession that started when they controlled congress, and got WAY worse when they added the presidency to their trophy case.
So what is it exactly that the GOP would put on steroids that has the hair plugs on Biden's neck standing on edge? We never know because the media never forces Dems to explain themselves. They should thank God for that because in all honesty, children would sound more coherent trying to explain how Obamacare works.
The Republican response to this was pretty amusing:
Republicans said Biden was taking a vacation from reality, noting the 9.5 percent U.S. unemployment rate, a skyrocketing national debt and the highest jobless claims in nine months.
"Joe Biden is still desperately trying to convince Democrats that the economy is on the right track," said Republican National Committee spokesman Bill Riggs. "It's clear that Barack Obama and Joe Biden are completely out of touch."
I would like to congratulate Biden for winning a spot in the next ad for F.O.O.L....

Five years ago we were told Iran was 5 years away from a functioning nuclear reactor, and liberals said this was crazy talk.
Well its five years later...and "I told you so" is going to be really hard to appreciate when you're trying to hide from nuclear fallout.
How the credibility of the these people hasn't vaporized is a testament to the power of the forcefield the liberal media erects around its own. Thanks to those idiots more people know who Bristol Palin's son&'s play dates are than the name of the man trying to literally hurl us toward Armageddon.
I can't even begin to figure out how to put into words the anger I feel at how unaware the media is of their complicity in what seems to be our increasingly inevitable destruction. They will do ANYTHING to excuse liberal world-ending incompetence.
On that note here's an example of my "imagination" on that matter...

I don't know what to add to this, so I wont...except share this with EVERYONE you know.
Ok I lied...I have something to add. We hear from a lot of "moderates" that conservatives cling too hard to Reagan. They FAIL to understand that its not Reagan we cling to, its his rhetoric. In the end its not even truly his rhetoric....its His rhetoric.
Its no wonder they want us to forget
him Him them both.

So the downward double-helix of Obama's public persona continues to unravel...now roughly 1 in 5 people asked think Obama is Muslim.
White House Deputy Press Secretary Bill Burton says the president is "obviously Christian," so I'm not really sure why this continues to be a question...
As far as the Muslim bandwagon is concerned, I'm not there yet, and probably wont ever be there. I will say this, I'm not willing to go about saying who is and who isn't whatever religion...but his Christianity is not obvious by any means.Add a comment
As President Obama is now in Martha's Vineyard for his 6th apparent vacation of the year here is a headline from The Drudge Report:
Martha's Vineyard waters contaminated with fecal bacteria
.......still no word if he'll be a man and fess up to it.
By the way, while this is going on Drudge leads with...

If you haven't noticed yet I like getting really good jokes from people, and will share them every chance I get, here's another good one.
A man died and went to heaven. As he stood in front of St. Peter at the Pearly Gates, he saw a huge wall of clocks behind him.
He asked, 'What are all those clocks?'
St. Peter answered, 'Those are Lie-Clocks.
Everyone on Earth has a Lie-Clock.
Every time you lie the hands on your clock will move.'
'Oh,' said the man, 'whose clock is that?'
'That's Mother Teresa's. The hands have never moved, indicating that she never told a lie.'
'Incredible,' said the man. 'And whose clock is that one?'
St. Peter responded, 'That's Abraham Lincoln's clock. The hands have moved twice, telling us that Abe told only two lies in his entire life.'
'Where's President Obama’s clock?' asked the man.
Obama’s clock is in Jesus' office.
He's using it as a ceiling fan.
