Turds of Wisdom, from Karl Rove, Wall Street Journal: But a scorched-earth policy doesn’t make sense for the Obama White House. Independents voted Republican last month by a 59% to 38% margin not because they thought Mr. Obama too civil, his course too centrist, and his bipartisanship too energetic.

The moral case for unions—protecting working families from exploitation—does not apply to public employment. Government employees today are among the most protected, well-paid employees in the country.

Dumbo, a/k/a Barack Obama on the market economy: “The basic idea is that if we put our blind faith in the market and we let corporations do whatever they want and we leave everybody else to fend for themselves, then America somehow automatically is going to grow and prosper.” Thirty-three miner in Chili might disagree.   […]

Dumbo is Delusional.  Alas too many cocaine parties and not enough sober study.  Proof that the Obama administration is demented.  Barack Obama had called Fox News destructive, but his administration has lauded the clowns Keith Olbermann and Rachel Maddow of MSNBC.  You go figure.   Nice Deb has all the story. More  Delusional,  Dean Esmay l: […]

That takes me back 15 years ago to the time President Bill Clinton accused “loud and angry voices” on the airwaves (i.e., radio talk-show hosts like me) of having incited Oklahoma City bomber Timothy McVeigh.
