For the first time since then-Sen. Barack Obama begged then-Sen. Joe Biden to become his vice presidential running mate, Americans have developed a negative view of the %#&*(+$ guy. A new Gallup Poll just out finds that for the first time since the summer of 2008, the scales of favorability have tipped against the old-timer, who became a senator when Barry Obama was on the sixth-grade playground.
...So what exactly are viable and proper qualifications for being POTUS?
If we use President Obama as a guide, some of the line items present or missing from a resume should include, but not be limited to, the following:
Zero private sector business experience;
Having no leadership experience, management responsibility or bottom-line metrics by which you are judged for running any enterprise at a profit;
Possessing extremely limited or non-existent foreign policy or national security experience prior to taking office;..
"... or his youthful infatuation with cocaine and Marxist professors, or his long-time association with a radical domestic terrorist, or his membership in a church led by one of the most inflammatory Black separatist pastors in the country. Nah, it couldn’t possibly be any of those things that disinterested voters in the South. It must be because he is half African. Because that’s all we ever think about down here."
That and more from Wizbang colleague Michael Laprarie responding to this WaPo piece “Kentucky, Arkansas primaries: Is it racism?”
Think for a moment of the soullessness of the nurse involved in this incident:
Volusia County School officials stand by a Deltona High School nurse's decision to refuse a student his inhaler during an asthma attack, citing a lack of a parent's signature on a medical release form...
One of the best history books ever written, bar none, is Paul Fussell’s The Great War and Modern Memory, a book that elegantly and seamlessly manages to be a comprehensive overview of WWI from the English point of view and of British literature during WWI. My copy of the book, which I got during college, still occupies a prominent place on my bookshelf. I’ve read it so often that the cheap paperback binding has disintegrated and, when I open the book, the drift gently down around my feet. Anyone who is interested in England’s transition from pre-War romanticism to post-War
There IS a war on women and its not on the conservative side --liberal misogyny has hit a new low. Hustler has published a totally doctored photograph of conservative writer/pundit SE Cupp with a penis in her mouth.
Under the headline “Celebrity Fantasy,” the text beside the picture asks, “What would S.E. Cupp look like with a [d**k) in her mouth? They add a big yellow disclaimer to avoid a lawsuit.
“No such picture of S.E. Cupp actually exists. This composite fantasy is altered from the original for our imagination, does not depict reality, and is not to be taken seriously
Michelle Malking has turned me on to something I confess to having missed but that's firing up the 'sphere in big way, and rightly so:
For conservatives online, it is also a time-tested truism that there is great strength in numbers. When bloggers, activists, video content creators, and Twitter users on the Right unite behind common principles — fighting jihadi propaganda, exposing corruption, calling out media bias, following the progressive money trail, holding the Republican Party’s feet to the fire, etc. — we can accomplish uncommon things.

Before today, I’d been aware of Brett Kimberlin in only the vaguest possible way, since his name suddenly seemed to be popping on various sites I visit. Since his name didn’t actually ring any bells, I didn’t stop to educate myself about him. This morning, though, I’ve had a crash Kimberlin course and, friends, it’s ugly. It’s also something that requires action from as many people as possible in order to use the sunlight of free speech to bleach out the ugly and costly lies that Kimberlin is propagating against conservative bloggers.
