BOzo -- World Record Bull sh**ter

I just posted this as a comment at Betsy's:

BOzo is as full of it as any person I have ever seen. I know that sounds like hyperbole aimed at someone I oppose politically, but look at the last 4 months. The scope of the BS is just breathtaking. Not just in its depth, but its breadth. He bloviates unadulterated BS on everything. And the subjects he has chosen are monumental in their importance.

If there existed some way to quantify BS in terms of: 1) the importance of the subject matter discussed, 2) the power of the speaker to implement policy supported by the BS, 3) the extent to which the statements are in error, and 4) the hubris of the speaker -- BOzo would be the world record holder in a landslide.

Help wanted -- adult needed to supervise

After shoving hundreds of billions of dollars out the door without even bothering to figure out how the money will be spent, Obama wants to convince us that he is serious about fiscal discipline. He wants to find a hundred million in cuts. Apparently this is his response to the tea parties.

Everett Dirksen is known for joking that "a billion here, a billion there and pretty soon it starts adding up to real money." He died forty years ago. Obama's paltry hundred million was a joke forty years ago. Today?

B.O. is well on his way to BO-zo.


I'm still trying to figure out how failing as a community organizer gives one a sufficient background to serve as chief executive of the federal government, the banking industry, Wall Street, and the auto industry. Not to mention take over the entire health care industry. Oh, and save the planet.

Hubris. (On steroids).

I've watched the news media get worse and worse for the last 40 years. But I never thought the bias, fraud, corruption and propaganda efforts would get this bad. Unbelievable.

Those people in the electorate who believe that our country would be better with an honest, competent news media have to face a hard truth -- we don't have one and we aren't likely to have one until the people who care decide to do something about it. Wringing hands and whining won't get it done.

Talk radio and blogging are nice, but they don't reach the critical parts of the electorate that decide elections. Those folks still get their "news" from the corrupt MSM.

Pathetic lying in the LA Times

Patterico documents more libel by the LA Times. This is just pathetic.

Michael Moore's fiction

The basic premise of Michael Moore's first hit, "Roger & Me", is that the GM chief wouldn't meet with Moore. In reality, Moore actually got two interviews with Roger Smith. Gosh, it turns out that everything Moore has ever done is as big a lie as his very first "documentary". Is it any wonder that liberals love him so much.

Liberals -- living the lie, loving the lie.

Dems -- use intelligence assets to study global warming

Since the Democrats don't acknowledge that terrorism is a threat, they have come up with a better way to spend precious intelligence assets.

Dana Milbank really is that stupid

Or that dishonest. Only in the looking glass world of the MSM can the existence of terrorists in Iraq be questioned.

People actually read Time

I've never understood why, but circulation numbers indicate that people buy it. Can we assume that they also read it? But if they actually read it, then why would they continue to buy it? It's a mystery.

The Captain chronicles more lunacy from the rag. Surely they don't really think they commit journalism. Or has the definition of journalism become so debased that they still qualify?

The history of science

One of the absolute best courses I ever took was the History of Economic Thought as a college senior majoring in economics. Understanding how the theory of economics evolved to its current state was a tremendous benefit in helping to tie the subject all together. It helped place economics into context with the politics and history with which it is always inextricably intertwined.

Hugh Hewitt discusses a book which sounds like it does the same thing for science. If the book is, in fact, a "history" of science, it would be a great book for students. Understanding how and why we came to learn scientific facts would go a long way to helping non-scientists put it all in context.

Liars, idiots or both?

Betsy points out this column by Lawrence Kaplan which discusses the incredibly stupid comments made by Democrats about Iraq.

Rewriting History -- standard lefty tactic

Krauthammer sets the record straight on another myth created by the left. Imagine American politics where the Democrats actually operated within the parameters of truth.

OK, enough with the fantasy. Imagine US politics where Democratic voters had even a passing understanding of reality.

OK. Wake up. Dream over.

NY Times confirms it can't be trusted

When hiring, the Times focuses on those who bash Bush, even when they were wrong. Pushing a falsehood is a paramount concern.

Democrats love taxes

Baseball Crank provides a rundown of the love affair Democratic governors have with higher taxes. One quote that really, really got my attention:
A tax on oil companies proposed by Gov. Jim Doyle could be passed through to consumers at the gas pump, according to an analysis by state tax officials cited in a conservative group's new report.
Doyle has proposed taxing oil companies an estimated $272 million over two years and pledged he'll keep the costs from being passed on to Wisconsin consumers by fining or even jailing oil company executives who try to do so.

Catch that? The governor of Wisconsin wants to monitor the prices that certain businesses charge. If he thinks the prices are too high, he wants to throw people in jail. Welcome to the Soviet State of Wisconsin.

Chris Matthews is no bozo

As Beldar notes, Chris Matthews is no bozo:
To call Chris Matthews a "total bozo" is an entirely inadequate insult for him, but a vicious slur against clowns throughout world history.

Conservatives need not apply

And honesty will never be a virtue of the political left-wing. The NY Sun describes the futile search of an outstanding scholar to get a tenure-track job. He didn't think the right way.

"Indoctrinate U"

I want to see this movie.

The right response to multi-culti BS

Betsy has a great post on the proper interaction of cultures:
What cowardice to surrender your own culture's beliefs in protecting victims from violence simply because you want to respect the hallowed idea of multiculturalism.

I prefer the response of General Sir Charles Napier who had this response to complaints in India that he wasn't respecting local culture when the British outlawed the practice of suttee in which widows were forced to cast themselves on the funeral pyres of their husbands.

"You say that it is your custom to burn widows. Very well. We also have a custom: when men burn a woman alive, we tie a rope around their necks and we hang them. Build your funeral pyre; beside it, my carpenters will build a gallows. You may follow your custom. And then we will follow ours."

Sadly, European politicians don't have that same confidence in their own culture today.
