Obama Speaks to Nation on the Morrow

Damn I’m glad we don’t have TV anymore. Reckon I’ll have to depend on you all to give me the high points…ha ha ha…as if!

Senator Coburn, I second that emotion!

by Doug Hagin

Tom Coburn is not exactly what you would call on the Newt 2012 bandwagon! Neither am I! Coburn has his reasons, which I share, and to which I would add quite simply that Newt is a politician, in my opinion before he is a Conservative! That just will not do! We need leadership, and in my opinion, politicians are not, by nature leaders. They are, rather than driven by principles, are driven too often by power!

Did she just say “reeducation”?

By Doug Hagin

I believe Kathleen Sebelius did use that old Stalinist phrase! This is not a good sign

Uncertain whether the last 18 months of dismal health-care speeches and rallies had entirely destroyed the myth of the Obama administration as gifted, uplifting message mavens, Kathleen Sebelius bravely ventured into the rhetorical orchards and brought forth this rotten fruit:

“Unfortunately, there still is a great deal of confusion about what is in [the reform law] and what isn’t,” Sebelius told ABC News Radio in an interview Monday.

“So, we have a lot of reeducation to do,” Sebelius said.

Cult of competence, I believe they were once called.

Very creepy indeed! Of course the Left will dismiss any concerns over the use of that particular phrase. But, it is interesting that Sebelius did not simply say informed for example. Wasit just a bad choice of words? Was it just her condescending arrogance at work? Is she really stupid enough to think we stupid Americans just do not understand how wonderful ObamaCare is? Or, does she believe in, well, you know!

Let’s Just Chill a Bit About the Alaska Senate Primary

Friends like The Other McCain, Dan Riehl and Bob Belvedere have been somewhat exercised over the possibility of strange happenings as we head into the tabulation of ballots tomorrow (I think Bob was joking, though).

It might be comforting to hear from someone who is (almost literally) next door to the Alaska Division of Elections. That is, me.

I  have been  observing to the elections process here, in various capacities, for the last 10 years. There is ALMOST no room for any shenanigans when the count of absentee, questioned and early ballots goes down tomorrow. In the realm of the human there is always some room, I suppose. But unlike Washington or Minnesota, where a few boxes of ballots can always be found for the Democrat, Alaska does not have a political hack in charge of elections, nor will there be any new votes “discovered” after the count tomorrow.  There will still be some days for additional absentees to trickle in, but they won’t be from the graveyards.

I wouldn’t be surprised if Murkowski picks up enough votes to trigger an automatic hand recount, but whoever wins that will be the legitimate winner, in my mind. NRSC lawyers or any other outside “consultants” will have zero, I repeat, zero impact on the results of the voting here.

That being said, let’s chill with Brooklyn Decker.  I understand she was involved in some “swimsuit issue”, but really, does anyone looking at this believe it had something to do with swimming?
