Breakfast Scramble (Saturday)

DavidL's Breakfast Scramble
Et tu Keith, William Kristol, comes to laud the suspended Keith Olbermann, from Weekly Standard [1]:

Perhaps Olbermann violated NBC News “policy and standards.” But NBC doesn’t have real news standards for MSNBC—otherwise the channel wouldn’t exist. It’s a little strange to get all high and mighty now.

Who knew Bill Kristol was a Roman?   He certainly knows how to carefully pick his targets

Say good night Keith, Michelle [2] chimes in:

Whatever NBC’s guidelines may be, it was the basic journalistic failure of the Murrow wanna-be to disclose the donation on the night he hosted one of his cash recipients that seals his fate and undermines whatever iota of credibility his station has left.

Good night and good riddance.

Christmas in November, the worst speaker in the history of the House and the post child of the republican tsunami wants to get kicked some more, from ABC News [3]:

In the wake of Tuesday’s shellacking, outgoing Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, D-CA, has been widely expected to step down as the Democratic leader and leave Congress.

Not so fast.

High-level Democratic sources in the House tell ABC News Pelosi is seriously considering staying in Congress and running for the position of minority leader.

The Bad Behar of the West just doesn’t know when to quit.   The United State is leans conservative moderate nation.   Mrs. Pelosi is die hard leftist.   She can not her party out of the electoral desert, but it will be amusing to watch.

Dumbo is a Daze, Charles Krauthammer, Washington Post [4]:

The president, however, remains clueless. In his next-day news conference, he had the right demeanor – subdued, his closest approximation of humility – but was uncomprehending about what just happened. The “folks” are apparently just “frustrated” that “progress” is just too slow. Asked three times whether popular rejection of his policy agenda might have had something to do with the shellacking he took, he looked as if he’d been asked whether the sun had risen in the West. Why, no, he said.

It has  been said that God works in mysterious ways.   Well Dumbo, b/k/a Barack Obama, campaigned in Aught0Eight as a bipartisan uniter.   Obscrene democrat majorities (unfairly) robbed Dumbo of a significant opportunity to demonstrate his purported skills at working cross the party aisle.    Just like B.J. Clinton after the 1994 democrat debacle,  Obama now has his chance.    Can Dumbo rise to the challenge?   Film in ‘Twelve.

More Dumbo’s Brain, of lack thereof, Christine M. Flowers, Philly Daily News [5]:

Our 44th president is a man who has an excellent brain and a not-infrequently childish disposition and who thinks he knows what is best for everyone but has neither the patience nor the humility to deal with those who preach a different way. He’s both brilliant – and exceedingly petulant.

His opponents sometimes aren’t much better, of course. In politics, you always have to deal with the undisciplined and unmannered fellow who screams out in a public venue, “You lie!”

Sorry Ms Flowers, if Barrack Obama were intelligent, he would have had at least some accomplishment earned by merit..  He has none.   Yes Dumbo does seem to believe that he truly know what is best.   Yet, maybe because of too much cocaine snorting, he utterly unable  to explain any reason for any of his beliefs.   We are expected to trust Obama’s  supposed intellect.  But where is the evidence of this intellect?

Legal Insurrection goes co-ed,  William Jacobson, the former sole proprietor, authored the only blog professed to written by a law professor nearly worth reading on a daily basis.    After two years in the trenches,  Professor Jacobson has taken on a co-blogger, link [6]:

If I were to bring someone on board, it would have to be someone who was consistent with my political outlook but at the same time brought a different focus, dynamic, and readership profile.  I also needed someone I trusted not to embarrass me (because only I am allowed to embarrass myself).

And I think I have found the first of such persons, Kathleen McCaffrey.  (Image right with Václav Klaus [7] during his visit to Cornell.)

Kathleen, who is a Junior at Cornell, already has carved out quite a name for herself in the political blogosphere.  Kathleen is the co-founder of The Politicizer [8] and also R&M Political Group [9], which does social media consulting.

Legal Insurrection is the only conservative site written by a law professor which puts a daily stream of political commentary, in fact written by the law professor, rather than an unname and uncredited series of unknown co-bloggers.

There law professor blogs to find magnificent photography, endless pop-up ad, or amazing deals at Amazon.    Whereas Legal Insurrection just offers conservative political commentary.
