More plagiarism from Obama

The “O” Salute left me wondering, “Where have I seen that before?”

Big hat-tip to n2l (via Gateway Pundit) for providing the answer: Trekkies will recognize the salute as a rip-off from “The Way To Eden”.

Obama plagiarizes Star Trek

Obama plagiarizes Star Trek

In this episode, a group of space hippies are in search of Utopian Bliss in a world known as “Eden.” All the cool space hippies use the “O” salute. And if you ain’t cool, you’re a “herbert.”

Their search for Utopia ends tragically, but as all good liberals know, the end results don’t matter as long as your intentions are good.

The Obama candidacy is turning into a bad joke, a Disneyesque re-creation of the worst of the 60’s.

Update: Man, talk about overconfidence.

“All-Out War” in Georgia

South Ossetia, in the central European nation of Goergia is the scene of bitter fighting between the Russian Federation and national defense forces from Georgia. Witnesses said the South Ossetian capital of Tskhinvali was devastated, with reports of hundreds of civillian deaths.

Russia sent columns of tanks and reportedly bombed Georgian air bases yesterday after Georgia launched a major military offensive to retake the breakaway province of South Ossetia, threatening to ignite a broader conflict…

“I saw bodies lying on the streets, around ruined buildings, in cars,” said Lyudmila Ostayeva, 50, who had fled with her family to Dzhava, a village near the border with Russia. link

Georgia told the UN security council today that Russia mounted a “premeditated” attack on its territory that inflicted many civilian casualties.

Irakli Alasania, Georgian ambassador to the UN, addressed the public during an emergency meeting to discuss the fighting.

“Russia launched a blunt and open invasion of Georgia and has challenged the international community and its established democracy,” said Alasania, whose remarks were supported by the United States.

“The United States is profoundly disturbed by this development and we call on Russia to cease all attacks and respect Georgia’s sovereignty and territorial integrity,” US Ambassador Zalmay Khalilzad said.

Surprise, Surprise, Surprise! National Enquirer Right, John Edwards Lied

I just listened to David Perel, National Enquirer editor-in-chief, give details about the Edwards affair. He also expressed extreme doubt about the veracity of Edwards dismissing the child as not his. Well, Edwards always did look like a self-obsessed POS to me, so it doesn’t surprise me one tiny little bit that he denies parentage of the little girl.

From ABC News:

In an interview for broadcast tonight on Nightline, Edwards told ABC News correspondent Bob Woodruff he did have an affair with 44-year old Rielle Hunter, but said that he did not love her.

Oh, well, he was just using her as a sperm receptacle, so that makes everything okay. And since he was apparently paying a significant amount of cash to this woman (right, she makes videos), that would make her a prostitute.

Edwards also denied he was the father of Hunter’s baby girl, Frances Quinn, although the one-time Democratic Presidential candidate said he has not taken a paternity test.

Interesting. I wonder why he was sneaking around to visit this woman (and the baby) at hotels late at night if the affair was over and the baby wasn’t his? I know it doesn’t take 5 hours to write a check or hand over cash.

And speaking of disgusting behavior, I think that the newspaper and television reporters (or their managers) who refused to cover this story and would have had him potentially picked by Obama as a VP candidate or, if Obama settled on another VP pick and actually won the election, attorney general, have done Obama a huge disservice by hiding Edwards’ atrocious behavior from Obama and from the American people. I don’t suppose that they ever stopped to think what the voters’ reaction would be to potentially having a VP candidate who cheated on his cancer-stricken wife, lied about it, and engaged in a huge cover up, perhaps even using PAC funds to pay her bills. Perhaps they were aware of the truth all along, and were hoping to keep it hidden until AFTER the election.

There are a lot of people in this country, registered to vote, that actually have moral standards.

Edwards’ political career is over. I’m very surprised that he went as far as he did.

Official Obama Gesture of Veneration

Whenever Obama appears, his followers are going to make big ol’ zeroes with their hands in a gesture of supplication and surrender. I encourage them in this endeavor. I suspect that we will be better off if his followers’ hands are in the air where we can keep an eye on them.

I’m not so sure that the “please don’t hurt me, I give up!” gesture will help if they come up against PUMA at the Democratic Convention. I believe PUMA’s gesture of support for Hillary includes a baseball bat and an Obama delegate.

Update: Perhaps they’re all just really, really big (well, you know).
