Welcome one and all to the most intense nightly read anywhere on the ‘sphere… The BitsBlog Nightly Ramble


  • JACKASS Well, that’s what Barack Obama called Kanye West for his antics the other night, already commented on here. Now  add ABC’s Terry Moran to the mix by way of The Politico, and you’re sure to have a belly laugh. Premature? Oscar Meyer can’t generate that much baloney that quickly.  Actually, I think West to be in a position to ahve to work very hard indeed to raise himself UP to the level of jackass, but I won’t complain about the lable being applied.  Still, it interests me that ABC should be running blocker on this stuff. Just one more data point on the sheet discussing how far in the tank the MSM is for Obama, and how Obama won’t say things publicly about certain ethnic groups… things everyone already knows.
  • SPEAKING OF WEST: The Daily Mail as of about 730 eastern this morning (no link as of this writeing) was confirming the street rumblings about West going to spend time at the rehab center. Meanwhile, did you see Taylor Swift’s Mom? She was some KINDA pissed. And who can blame her?
  • ACORN: HOT AIR’s Ed Morressey is saying that the Senate has voted to cut off funding for ACORN. He identifies the Democrats who voted against the cutoff as:
    • Dick Durbin (D-IL)
    • Roland Burris (D-IL)
    • Robert Casey (D-PA)
    • Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY)
    • Patrick Leahy (D-VT)
    • Bernie Sanders (I-VT)
    • Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI)

    Let’s look at this one. Durbin doesn’t surpise me at all. Nor does Burris, or Casey. Not a aone of them worth the powder to blow up. Lehey, and Sanders and Whitehouse are all quite predictable as well. Gillibrand, is something less of a surpirse than she might have been when she was first appointed to the deat… you know…back when she was making all the right nosies about being centrist. Since then, she’s gone about as far to the left as you might imagine.  It’s now down to her supporting, as Ed says, Child-Whoring Pimps, with taxpayer dollars. Ah, yes. The wonders of being Democrat. And you know, all this has been so very predictable. Shannon Love at Chicago Boys has more on this one, saying in part:

    • One report from an Acorn office was a fluke. Any large organization, public or private of any creed can be infected by amoral individuals who will try to use the organization to commit illegal or unethical acts. No organization larger than a few dozen people can police the actions of every member, all the time.
    • Two reports from two separate Acorn offices was just a disturbing coincidence. The same reasoning as above applies, because in a large organizations, just as in a large installed base of computers, it’s possible for two separate bad eggs carrying out the same acts to show up in the same organization.
    • Three identical reports of the same failure from three separate offices indicates the criminality arises from the organization itself. It is highly unlikely that, out of the hundreds of Acorn offices around the nation, the journalist just happened to wander into the three offices whose managers wouldn’t blink an eye at helping to set up a brothel using children.

    This degree of organizational systemic rot has to come from the head. I think that much is obvious. Something in Acorn’s organizational culture made these people feel that it was okay and expected for them to give the criminal advice that they did. Certainly, if Acorn had been a private for-profit company, three separate and wholly unrelated incidents would have been enough for leftists to demand the heads of the corporate officers.

    So very true.And I think it actually goes to the cultural level, myself. Look once again at the supporters of the left. Look at the criminal behavior that they have been willing to suborn and look at what cultural groups tend to get arrested more. Look at the criminal behavior of the pols leftists tend to elect.  William Jefferson ring any bells, Pavlov?  How about Charlie Rangel? The Clintons? John Murtha? And who could possibly forget the overtly honorable and overtly tough on crime Elliot Spitzer are ?  You remember… Client number nine.  His replacement, too, Patterson has also gone down that same road apparently.

  • AN ACORN THOUGHT: Why is it that none of the MSM.. inclduing FOX,  dared to investigate ACORN?  Journalists are mostly Democrats, is why. Ponder that for a moment, kiddies. Why is there so lttle in the MSM about the Democrats and their criminal behavior? Same answer. Barb Oakley recently did an article in Psychology Today that looked into why that’s so.

    As it turns out, the preponderance of journalists are Democrats.  And socialism, with its idyllic, “progressive” programs, has formed an increasingly important role in Democratic policies.  Who wants to investigate a possible dark side of your own party’s plank?
