After the past week, I’m almost surprised MSNBC is showing more than a test pattern. The “talent” that now serves as the tip of the Democratic Party’s media spear has managed, in the past seven days, to plumb depths that are normally inhabited by leftist hate speech sites funded by former Nazi collaborator George Soros.
That’s a lot of “illegals,” Mr.President. Riding the lightning at the press conference. And Fluke it up, it don’t cost nothin’. All this, plus: riding the rails with Crazy Joe! Presented in 1080 hi-def, FOR FREE! It’s the great eight, from the Personal Liberty Digest™!
For someone the Democrats have declared irrelevant, former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin seems to be surprisingly relevant. According to the left, Palin hasn’t been a real factor since 2008. Yet every time she so much as makes a run to the grocery store, liberals scrutinize her behavior.
Following President Barack Obama’s non-apology-apology during his SUPER DUPER EXCLUSIVE sit down with NBC “reporter” and Obama Administration flack Chuck Todd, the newest of the ever-changing Democratic explanations for the abysmal disaster which is Obamacare revealed itself. As it turns out, the fact that Obama lied about every aspect of Obamacare from the moment he first threatened the Nation with it is immaterial.
And the loser is: America. For one cancer survivor, Obama is worse than the disease. And: Nobody moves, nobody gets hurt. All this — plus — Joe phones a friend; more or less. Presented in 1080 hi-def, FOR FREE! It’s The Great Eight, from the Personal Liberty Digest™!
On Tuesday, my fellow Savannahians and I ducked into the polls with our usual civic pride (about 19 percent of eligible voters participated). Though the ballot questions dealt with a very local issue, the nature of the question provides what President Barack Obama might call a “teachable moment.”
Ultimately, pointing out that President Barack Obama and the trash with which he has surrounded himself represent an affront to everything decent about this Nation is about as worthwhile as attempting to explain actual science to Al Gore.

On Tuesday, House Minority Whip Steny Hoyer (D-Obamacare) finally admitted what everyone outside the Federally-funded “navigators” already knew. It doesn’t matter if you like your plan or not. Indeed, Hoyer knew all along that Obama’s top selling point was an outright fraud.
If the next Presidential election grants me no other boon, I sincerely wish that it will grant me the Presidential candidacy of former First Lady, Senator and Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton. To borrow one of President Barack Obama’s favorite phrases, “let me be clear”: I want Hillary Clinton to run for President as badly as Obama wants to birdie the 9th at Doral. Before you compose an angry email to Mr. Livingston demanding I be consigned to an eternity of serving as Oprah Winfrey’s towel boy, allow me to elaborate.
