Rendering judgement

During the campaign, candidate Obama urged America not to worry about his history of dubious associations with shady characters. Pay no attention to Rezko, Ayres, and Rev. Wright, his defenders said. “Judge me by the people I will surround myself with.” (video at link)

The list of tax-cheats, and ethically-challenged nominees are detailed in the Fauxbama page. I’m exhausted just trying to keep up with it.

More recently, we’ve learned of communist radical Van Jones who resigned in the middle of the night to avoid MSM scrutiny. We’ve heard the story of Kevin Jennings, who as a teacher, condoned statutory rape of a 15 year old student, and refused to inform the authorities as he was required to by law. Fifteen years later, Jennings boasted about it while speaking to a group of homosexual activists.

Now confronted by his past, Jennings claims to “regret” his mistake in a remorseless admission, all the while describing it as perhaps the latest example of an Obamanian teachable moment.

Today, I was reading Catholic News Agency’s report on Obama’s EEOC nominee, Chai R. Feldblum. In 2006, Feldblum was a signatory to a radical 2006 manifesto which endorsed polygamous households and argued traditional marriage should not be privileged “above all others.”.

Feldblum’s nomination was sent to the U.S. Senate on Sept. 15.

Enough time has passed to do as Obama has requested: to observe the people he is surrounded by, and to fairly discern the type of person Obama is. The answer is quite clear to me.

What say you, America?

Buzzards gotta eat, same as the worms

John Evander Couey, convicted child rapist and murderer has assumed room temperature, depriving Florida and the Lunsford family of seeing Couey’s death sentence carried out.

Mark Lunsford, the victim’s father once said of Couey, that he wouldn’t mind if Couey died at the hands of another inmate, saying “I would be buying a lot of cigarettes for someone.”

Looks like Mr. Lunsford won’t have to buy those cigarettes after all.

Couey died of cancer today in prison.

It’s finally over

Charles Johnson rides into the sunsetThe end of the road, the last hurrah.

I read that Dan Rather’s lawsuit against CBS had been dismissed by an NY appellate court. And Gunga Dan’s lawyers to the contrary, it looks pretty effing final to me. It looks like the end of the trail for old Dan.

So, interveneing events notwithstanding, there’s one blog I simply have to look at, like it or not. You guessed it – AtS. And yup, there it is, posted at 12:22 PM PDT – the story, complete with the throbbing memo and all.

But what’s this ? In 4 hours 17 minutes there have been only 167 comments on what should be a record-setting celebratory thread, including only one by the Amphibian Queen himself, and it has nothing to do with the thread topic. [ed: after 9 hours, 172 comments.]

And what should have been a victory thread was only the top thread for a little over an hour before it was time for a thread slamming Rick Santorum as a creationist right-winger. And all the while, the blog is topped by yet another swipe at Malkin.

its finally overOkay, so there’s hardly anybody left that was there during Rathergate – Chaz has picked off almost all of them. But the fact of the matter is that Chaz himself isn’t really interested anymore. His single greatest achievement, the one that got him his 15 minutes, TV and radio appearances and allowed him to be a founder (flounder ?) of PJM and to think that he had a clue, and not even he really gives a sh*t.

Still wondering what the problem is, Chaz ?
