Sen. Obama: It's September 10, 2001

There are proposals by candidates that achieve a level of naivete and ignorance from which they should never recover.

Today, Senator Obama announced he will seek the elimination of the world's nuclear weapons, if elected president. This is a proposal he should never, ever recover from. And one that his opponents should use to demonstrate - again - how his inexperience and I'd-like-to-teach-the-world-to-sing-in-perfect-harmony Coca-Cola commercial philosophy of foreign policy is dangerous to our national security.

I'm sure al-Qaeda will agree we need to eliminate nuclear weapons. And Iran. And Syria. And Hamas. And Islamic Jihad. And I could go on listing the terrorists and America-haters who want to carry out another September 11, 2001 - using nuclear weapons on us.

Pollsters Anonymous

The latest Quackapiac Quinnipiac poll claims New Yorkers believe that Gov. Spitzer "knew what his aides were doing when they arranged for State Police records of Senate Majority Leader Joseph Bruno's travels to be leaked to the media" by a margin of 56-25 percent and that "New York State voters say 78 - 17 percent that Gov. Eliot Spitzer should testify under oath about what he knew of the so-called Troopergate scandal."


"Voters say 57 - 26 percent that Spitzer is 'honest and trustworthy.'"

That makes sense. It's perfectly intellectually consistent.

The Serenity Pollster: May I continue to strive to maintain the Polling Serenity to accept the crosstabs things that are not mine to sample change, courage to change the focus groups things that I should for the margin of error betterment of my fees the planet or even one likely voter life upon it , and the wisdom to know the wording of the question difference.

To be a near-daily feature given the media's obsession with polls and the horse race.


Drudge, when he's not obsessing about freak weather events, missing persons, 60-year-old mothers, 17-pound babies, the train wrecks of Hollywood bimbos and mimbos, today has one of his classic screaming headlines:


Perhaps he should ask how President Phil Gramm and President Steve Forbes did with their fund-raising prowess. Or even President Howard Dean before he self-destructed in Iowa.

Hillary raised $27 million. Sen. Obama raised $20 million. The difference is negligible so far out from the first votes being cast.

Governor Richard Milhouse Spitzer

The New York Post reports the Governor is a tad upset with critics of his scheme to provide driver's licenses to illegal aliens:

"What I object to is that the attacks from the right show the extent to which this is about desperate politics and not about substance . . .

"No amount of fear mongering and extremist rhetoric will prevent us from doing what is morally and practically correct."

He is coming apart.

There is no elected official in New York more practiced in "extremist rhetoric" than Eliot Spitzer. Joe Bruno knows it. Jim Tedisco knows it. John Whitehead certainly knows it.

He is petty.

He is petulant.

He can't handle, emotionally, anyone who disagrees with him.

He is America's Governor-Infant.

The Phony Soldier, and Phony Democratic Outrage

The controversy surrounding Rush Limbaugh's "phony soldier" remark has reached the Orwellian level.

Do Democrats and liberals even understand the English language, or the sequence of a conversation?

Limbaugh did not attack or denigrate anti-war soldiers as "phony soldiers." He attacked and denigrated one phony soldier, Jesse MacBeth. MacBeth was in Army basic training for 40 days before he was judged unfit to serve and promptly discharged. Yet he was adopted as the latest mascot by the moveon.org fanatics after he claimed to have killed men and women leaving a Baghdad mosque while stationed in Iraq.

This fact didn't stop Senate Majority Leader Pat Geary Harry Reid from calling Limbaugh's comments "so beyond the pale of decency that it cannot be left alone."

Senator Tom Harkin, in one of the most unseemly and undignified rants witnessed on the Senate floor in recent memory said, "Well, I don’t know. Maybe he was just high on his drugs again. I don’t know whether he was or not. If so, he ought to let us know. But that shouldn’t be an excuse."

And John Kerry said, "In a single moment on his show, Limbaugh managed to question the patriotism of men and women in uniform who have put their lives on the line and many who died for his right to sit safely in his air-conditioned studio peddling hate."

How these three men manage to corral even one vote from the people of Nevada, Iowa and Massachusetts is near-stunning. Each has used inflammatory rhetoric that damaged troop morale, and hurt our efforts to achieve victory. They have now directed manufactured outrage at a private citizen for the sole purpose of motivating their lunatic fringe supporters on the left. It's a disgrace.

Daily News: Spitzer snubs Cuomo at L.I. Democratic Party meeting

Liz Benjamin has the latest on the Governor-Infant.

He blew off Attorney General Andrew Cuomo at the Democratic party's annual fall meeting. Likely because of the non-scathing scathing report he issued on the use of State Troopers to track Senate Majority Leader Joe Bruno's movements.

The Governor appears oblivious to the significance of the Cuomo report. He went easy on Spitzer. He should be sending Cuomo chocolates and flowers for not putting his aides under oath.

Chichester's Entourage Checks In / RE: SCHIP

Bush is bungling the message on vetoing SCHIP. Anybody home in the PR department? The reason to veto is NOT "get the needy signed up first" – implying that we’ll get the remainder later. Huh?

The message should be: This is fiscally irresponsible, making a mockery of the Democrats campaign posture last year, and exacerbates the health care problem in this country. This makes it more costly by expanding third party payments for health care by the government, drawing in still more middle class to government entitlements that are bankrupting our children’s future.

Expanding middle class subsidies with higher middle class taxes also crowds out the private insurance market, giving government more control over this world class industry, which leads to inevitable rationing. The White House and Republican party never fails to miss an opportunity to educate the American people on the health care debate. - Rick "Flash" Davis.

Contraception Coercion

Go ahead, Catholics, and keep voting for Democrats

Nancy Pelosi

Today, Speaker of the House Tracy Flick Nancy Pelosi will appear on the most serious and substantive public affairs program on the air in America - The View.

How fitting.

The transcript of this appearance is going to be Stooges-level funny.

How To Annoy Chichester III

Candidates, incumbents, flacks and their supporters should do every single humanly possible thing and avoid using these words and phrases since they cause Chichester's head to explode.

Lock and load (you can't lock, and next load; if you needed to fire your weapon you'd, quite simply, be dead).

It is what it is (Chichester reaches for the helium mask like Hopper in Blue Velvet).

Obama Raises $20 million From 93,000 Donors

Hillary should be nervous.
