Here’s a small LinkSwarm to tide you over for Black Friday:
62% of voters oppose Obama’s illegal alien amnesty.
Barack Obama: Troll in Chief.
“If you want to see the end point of Barack Obama’s shining path, visit Detroit.”
“The group toward whom [Obama]‘s shown the greatest contempt, however, is low-skilled American workers, particularly blacks.”
“At what point do we stop enabling the grievance industry to override our core constitutional protections?”
Did Obama prevent Missouri from deploying the National Guard to prevent Ferguson rioting?
“Communist agitators stirring up a civil rights protest sounds like a bad ‘60s flashback, but that’s just what happened last week in Ferguson.”
Jim Webb’s career show’s how badly Democrats have been hollowed-up in the Obama era:
The Democrats, if they had any remaining intellectual honesty, would hold their convention in Detroit. Democratic leadership, Democratic unions and the Democratic policies that empower them, Democrat-dominated school bureaucracies, Democrat-style law enforcement, Democratic levels of taxation and spending, the politics of protest and grievance in the classical Democratic mode — all of these have made Detroit what it is today: an unwholesome slop-pail of woe and degradation that does not seem to belong in North America, a craptastical crater groaning with misery, a city-shaped void in what once was the industrial soul of the nation. If you want to see the end point of Barack Obama’s shining path, visit Detroit.
Consider: There will be only five red-state Senate Democrats left in the next Congress if, as expected, Sen. Mary Landrieu is defeated in next month’s runoff. Even more striking, there will be only five House Democrats left representing districts that Mitt Romney carried in 2012. The once-influential Blue Dog Caucus of fiscally hawkish Democrats is all but extinct. Republicans now boast twice as many blue-state senators (10) and five times as many blue-district representatives (25) than their Democratic counterparts in red territory.
While lots of ink has been spilled charting the GOP’s drift rightward, the Democratic Party’s move toward ideological homogeneity has been shorter and swifter.
(Hat tip: Instapundit, who notes “The Democratic Party has become an aging, regional party with a diversity problem.”)
It’s not that the Vietnamese communist leadership is good, it’s just less bad than all the other communist leaderships.
Ann Althouse is right: They really did choose a superbly illustrative picture for this Chuck Hagel resignation piece.
Only 50% of climate scientists think climate change is human induced.
Who should be Secretary of Defense? “America needs Dick Cheney. Now more than ever.”
You could read this Penny Arcade as a parable about Islam. Or trusting Obama.
