Sorry about the long absence...I will try to make amends later!

Spurious Poll...CNN shows its love for Bill Clinton

The left wingers are singing with joy over a recent CNN poll that suggests that a majority of Americans think that Bill Clinton was a superior president to George Bush. Clinton was president during a time of peace and prosperity...I think the poll measures the respondents' desire for the good old days, rather than the abilities of the two leaders.

Here is what the Carpetbagger Report says:

Clinton, meanwhile, doesn't need partisans to make his presidency look good — after a few years of watching Bush, Americans can't help but miss having a competent, capable leader in the Oval Office.

Clinton did little to move the country forward or to prepare for the dangers on the horizon. He gave us dozens of tiny, populist programs to please the masses. But he ignored the major dangers that his successor is now forced to deal with.

Immigration policy? Punt. Stopping the spread of Islamo-terrorism? Punt.

It is a good thing Bill Clinton is not president now...otherwise we would all best be studying Arabic and boning up on the Sharia.

11 Angry Men...and One Coward [link]

The Washington Post reports that the vote to execute Zacarias Moussaoui was 11 to 1...and that the holdout did so anonymously.

The foreman said deliberations reached a critical point on the third day, when the process nearly broke down. Frustrations built because of the repeated 11 to 1 votes on one charge without any dissenting arguments during discussions. All the ballots were anonymous, and the other jurors were relying on the discussions to identify the holdout.

So, the holdout pretended to go along with everyone else during the discussions, but voted against the death penalty just the same. Who knows why the person hid...probably because they knew that, if identified, they would become the focus of the attentions of the others.

So, this was not a "12 Angry Men" scenario, rather, it was 11 Angry Men...and One Coward. A coward who did not have the dignity to speak up for their beliefs. A coward who made no effort to justify those beliefs or win others over by force of argument. No, this coward just kept voting against the death penalty and driving his or her fellow jurors to distraction.

political zombies [link]

Richard Lewis over at the Huffington Post blog feels that the current political situation is turning him into a zombie:

I'm married, working, performing, doing charitable work, helping other addicts, and working for as many political candidates to get elected in 2006 as I can. And yet, with the free-floating anxiety seemingly under control for the most part, I still feel like a zombie just going through the motions.

The reason? The mountain of abuses and lies and corruption and rationalizations, along with the fear of a majority of politicians (especially of my own beloved Democrats) to really level with power and authenticity about the nightmare of this administration. That, coupled with the obliteration of separation of church and state, our privacy rights, the pathetic nothingness done to help the racist divide, rampant poverty and homelessness, pathetic under-funded schools for most of our kids, massive zero health insurance for almost 50 million people, and on and on. That this is happening while the gargantuan collection of egos in powerful places continue to obliterate the progress America should be striving for, is again tragically getting me close to hiding under the covers.

* * * *

I don't get it. If a deeply religious, right wing conservative can still vote for a Republican candidate in November who remotely backs this President and his laundry list of horrors, then we're sunk. Isn't it possible for someone to be violently against say, Pro-Choice , but still be disgusted with the lies and deceit and vote to help us start over in building our country's esteem? I just don't get it. I can write a joke but I can't find anything funny about this. Maybe that's why I hate reality shows. This reality show is on 24/7 and that's plenty for me.

Well, the liberal whining, lies, and distortions of the tin hat brigades, and the blatant bias of the main stream media, are having an equally zombiefying effect on Megalon and your heroic Dictator for Life! Just look at us!

This could happen to YOU if we don't stop the Democrats!

Another month; another leak [link]

USA Today had a front page story about another NSA monitoring program....and the moonbats are "roger, go at throttle up" off like a rocket.

The National Security Agency has been secretly collecting the phone call records of tens of millions of Americans, using data provided by AT&T, Verizon and BellSouth, people with direct knowledge of the arrangement told USA TODAY.

Ah, another example of how people in the intelligence community hate this administration so much that they will do anything to bring it down. And USA Today helps, by misrepresenting the program (and that is assuming that the version they describe is even accurate) and using emotionally charged words to describe it:

The NSA program reaches into homes and businesses across the nation by amassing information about the calls of ordinary Americans — most of whom aren't suspected of any crime.

Reaching into homes? Uh...not really. "It's the largest database ever assembled in the world," said one person, who, like the others who agreed to talk about the NSA's activities, declined to be identified by name or affiliation. The agency's goal is "to create a database of every call ever made" within the nation's borders, this person added. Uh, that's not reaching into homes. But the editors of USA Today apparently don't care about the truth.

Now the moonbats are going to start claiming that the NSA is monitoring all of our phone conversations. According to the report, however, all that is being done is that a database is being created listing the phone number making a call, the number called, and the duration of the call. The content of the calls is not being monitored...but that little detail will be glossed over the the months to come.

Air Force Gen. Michael Hayden, nominated Monday by President Bush to become the director of the CIA, headed the NSA from March 1999 to April 2005. In that post, Hayden would have overseen the agency's domestic call-tracking program. Hayden declined to comment about the program.

Ah. Now maybe we know the reason for this leak...the traitors in the intelligence community don't want General Hayden to take over at the CIA.

Sources, however, say that is not the case. With access to records of billions of domestic calls, the NSA has gained a secret window into the communications habits of millions of Americans. Customers' names, street addresses and other personal information are not being handed over as part of NSA's domestic program, the sources said. But the phone numbers the NSA collects can easily be cross-checked with other databases to obtain that information. scary!

The usefulness of the NSA's domestic phone-call database as a counterterrorism tool is unclear. Also unclear is whether the database has been used for other purposes.

Well, maybe it is unclear to the moronic traitors at USA Today.

Le'ts remember, the initial report is probably inaccurate. The traitors who leaked this information to the press want to discredit the Administration and likely framed the information in as negative a light as possible. Remember Joe Wilson and his lies.

Speaker Wannabe Pelosi

Ok, I saw this photo of Nancy Pelosi, and it occurred to me that she looked a helluva lot like Harry (Harcourt Fenton) Mudd's shrewish wife, Stella from Classic Star Trek.

Scary resemblance! Even scarier if the Dems take the House this fall!

DeWine at Petro HQ

Your heroic Dictator for Life was at the Petro Campaign HQ last night, rooting for the underdog in the Republican primary for Governor.

Many notables showed up, including "lil" Mike DeWine, notorious for being a member of the "gang of 14."

I asked Mike if we were going to get some action on Brett Kavenaugh's nomination. Mike did not appear to know what I was talking about (at least until I said the magic word "judges").

State Auditor (as well as once and future Attorney General) Betty Montgomery was also there, as was RNC Chairman JoAnn Davidson.

Galactica's interesting escort

Hat tip to the Galactica Actual podcast for this little item. I did the video captures last night, to confirm the story.

Here is the Galactica with the fleet, the first time after the battle of Ragnar Station:

Now, here is a closup of the area marked in the yellow oval:

Neat, huh? Looks like Jim Kirk and company are keeping the ragtag, fugitive fleet safe!
