Investigate leaky Leahy

Pot. Kettle. Black.

So Senator Patrick Leahy, Democrat of Nutopia, wants to create a Truth Commission to investigate the Bush Administration.
How about a Truth Commission to investigate the multiple leaks Leahy made to The Washington Post and others as the vice chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee during the Reagan years? This guy never met a secret he didn’t want to betray in the name of political expediency and may well have cost the life of at least one covert agent because of his sneaky political ways

Exactly.

By “you,” I suppose he means taxpayers:

Never trust Democrats with money

Not known for fiscal probity:

The Democrat Executive Committee of Palm Beach County wants change all right, spare change that is. Local Democrat activists found out at last week’s DEC meeting that the local party is flat broke.
As of last week’s meeting the Palm Beach County DEC had $33,444.70 in cash on hand and $53,347.49 in unpaid bills, according to the info handed out at the meeting.
Most are placing the blame on former DEC Chairman Wahid Mahmood for leaving the party in such a wretched state of affairs when he left office in December of 2008.

But this is the party now running the federal government.

Fear itself

You can’t fool the markets:

US stocks fell sharply Tuesday, led by banks, as details of the government’s latest bank bailout plan trickled out.
The Dow Jones Industrial Average was down about 70 points, then lost another 100 in a matter of minutes — before even any official government announcement.
Treasury Secretary Tim Geither will reveal the proposals to help banks at 11 am New York time, after a one-day delay. CNBC will interview Geithner after his speech, at noon. Then he’s on to Capitol Hill, where he will testify before a House panel.

(Via AOSHQ.) The stimulus just passed the Senate — $800 billion for Democrats to squander.

The Obama Doctrine

Pre-emptive excuse-making:

[I]f the economy is still in trouble as the 2010 elections approach, Democrats will argue that eight years of Republican rule left the country in such awful shape that Democrats will need more time to clean up the mess. If unemployment is in the 7 percent to 9 percent range, they’ll say, without their policies, it would have been 12 percent, or perhaps higher.

Real Hope, Real Change

“The ever-optimistic Milton Friedman believed that America enjoyed two distinct advantages over other nations with regard to its ability to escape from the worst effects of socialism. First, Americans have an uncanny ingenuity that has allowed them to continuously find loopholes in government regulations. And second, the US Federal government is incredibly wasteful. Friedman believed that government waste was good, because the resulting inefficiency that it caused effectively forestalled absolute tyranny, and the enormous scale of its waste would continually spur grassroots efforts aimed at at reform and change.”

Signs the Apocalypse is upon us

The going gets weird:

An unusual wedding ceremony was held in the southern resort town of Eilat on Wednesday, as Sharon Tendler, a 41-years-old Jewish millionaire from London married her beloved Cindy, a 35-years-old dolphin, Israel’s leading newspaper Yedioth Ahronoth reported Thursday.

First “Miss Teen Weimar,” now this . . .

‘Real journalistic standards’ watch

The Washington Times just hired a former fashion model as a “style” reporter. And she’s not making a nickel more than any other reporter there, I’m sure.

Obamanauts diss DC media elite

It’s apparently a one-way love affair. The MSM cheerleaders go to the party, get drunk on Hope, and then are surprised to discover that the football team doesn’t respect them the morning after.
