Breakfast Scramble

DavidL's Breakfast ScrambleB.J’s fall from gtace, Los Angelos Times: [1]

‘I am not a racist,’ ex-President Bill Clinton asserts
Former presidents get a whole lot of leeway in what they say in public. But former President Bill Clinton just violated one of the prime rules of political communications: Never say what you are not.

Then this the same LSM which proclained B.J. as the “First Black President.”  Looks like the mediatards want to perform a retroactive abdication as the honor can shine on BO.  Good luck.

Morgan Freeman ‘Doing Well’ After Surgery, People [2]:

Morgan Freeman is on the mend after a Sunday night car crash that resulted in his being airlifted to a hospital in Memphis.

“Morgan is doing well after his surgery last night to reconnect nerves and repair damage in his left arm and hand,” his spokesperson, Donna Lee, said in a statement Tuesday

U.S. Sens. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., and Judd Gregg, R-N.H., introduced a tariff reduction measure to legislation one month before UNICA’s campaign launch. “This bill would essentially level the playing field and ensure that U.S. refiners are able to purchase cheaper and climate-friendly ethanol, no matter where it comes from,” Feinstein said. Gregg made similar suggestions. “This legislation introduced today on a bipartisan basis offers a reasonable solution that lowers the tariff on ethanol, keeping prices more competitive for American consumers and steering us in the direction of more affordable energy alternatives,” he said.

And who says we never compliiment Diane Fienstien?

Eric Cantor tells BO to lead:

ABC News [4]‘ Teddy Davis and John Santucci Report: A Virginia congressman who is reported to be under consideration to be Sen. John McCain’s, R-Ariz., running mate urged Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill., on Monday to pressure the Democratic leadership of Congress to take action on off-shore drilling.

“If Barack Obama is serious about trying to fix this problem,” said Rep. Eric Cantor, R-Va., “the first thing he should do is pick up the phone and call Speaker Pelosi and tell her to bring Congress back so that we can begin a process of getting an off-shore drilling bill across the floor of the House.”

Of course BO will issue no such call.   Even BO is smart enough to know that Mrs. Pelosi would not heed such a request, and BO doesn’t want to look even weaker than he already does.  Remember BO declared a economic emergency over high cost of gasoline and in response, Mrs. Pelosi went on vacation.

As the Bit Rambled [5]:

It looks like there may be an issue with the new BitsBlog [6] layout and IE6. Now, IE7 and Foxpro both work OK with it, though.  It’s a spacing issue that pops up on the main page at about 6 or 8 posts down. My best advice: Upgrade IE to 7, or better yet, upgrade to Foxpro

Microsoft, upgrade, sorry this does not compute.    Bill Gates land is a land without an up.
