Pithy, Extremely...

From a commenter at Hot Air, concerning the possible evaporation of Obama's convention bounce:

I guess when you give historic speeches every other day for a year the magic sort of wears off.

Can't wait to see what tomorrow's polls bring.

Governor Palin's Excellent Speaking Ability

Some of the negatives about Sarah Palin pointed out by thoughtful observers concern her ability to go toe-to-toe with Joe Biden in a debate. Biden is a knife fighter who is ruthless when the stakes are high (just ask Clarence Thomas), so the concern is real. But Governor Palin handled herself in an exemplary fashion today--without a telepromter--during her introduction address, and the following interview further reassures me that she can handle herself quite well, thank you:

Obama's Speech In A Nutshell

Kathy Lopez at NRO:

My takeaway from this speech:

Government can do anything.

I've been wanting a Tiffany bracelet...

My sentiments, exactly.

A Fundamental Time Bomb?

Byron York reports from the Democratic convention on the ongoing tension between the Obama and Clinton camps:

But the fact remains that the Democratic race was amazingly close; Clinton's 18 million votes and 1,896 delegates are just not going to disappear as if they never happened. I don't believe there's ever been a modern-day candidate who has claimed the nomination after losing New York and California and Ohio and Pennsylvania and New Jersey and Florida and Texas and California and Massachusetts and Tennessee and…you get the picture. That's why this is still a problem.

There is something fundamentally and freakishly wrong about this observation, however factual it may be. Will this be a grenade with the pin pulled, rolling around the Democrats' feet until November?

Obama's Friends

A Little Green Footballs reader visited a post office museum in Maine, and noticed the usual lineup of FBI most wanted posters, still hanging as they were when the post office closed in 1971. Guess who he saw:

What was it that Dohrn's husband and fellow domestic terrorist Billy Ayers said? "Guilty as hell and free as a bird. America is a great country."

Both are buddies of Our Saviour.

Confused...

Would someone tell me why a "Born-Alive Infants Protection Act" should even be necessary? And further, why anyone in his right mind (this means you, Messiah) would vote against a bill protecting babies who somehow manage to survive an abortion?

This begs the big question: Why in the hell would a woman abort a fetus that is survivable? This ought to be obvious to the cretins who think that repealing Roe v Wade would ban all abortions. Wrong, friendo. Roe v Wade guarantees a woman the right to abort her baby at any time during her pregnancy--and that includes the day before her due date. If you're okay with that, then good luck to you.

Any woman who aborts her fetus after waiting till the 35th or 40th week need to be in a mental hospital.

Unite with us, or die!

I find it funny yet disturbing that all of these "Progressives" who cherish their self image as those who speak "truth to power"; who are constantly railing about the Man keeping them down; and who see themselves as holding the flickering flame of truth in a gale of conservative hatefulness, have nominated a candidate who uses the guise of "unity" as a mallet to beat down any criticism of his policies or resume.

Progressives are never too far out of touch with their authoritarian roots.
