“hundreds of protestors”

Monday, September 19th, 2011

ABC news tell us that “hundreds of protestors” showed up to occupy Wall Street, yet their photo shows only nineteen, count them, nineteen protestors, twenty one if we suppose the two well dressed men mingling with police are also protestors, twenty two if we suppose the guy in the distance is also a protestor.

No one shows up for Day of rage.

Sunday, September 18th, 2011

Less than a dozen protestors showed up for the promised day of rage at wall street. Either people are not enraged, or, more likely, they decline to swallow the story that Fanny, Freddie, the FHA, and the rest of the government alphabet soup now merged into FHFA were poor innocent victims led astray by the manipulations of their evil wall street partners.

Crony Capitalism

Saturday, September 17th, 2011

Palin’s brilliant speech on Crony Capitalism seemed to go right over the heads of most of the voters, but the party faithful understood it, and now this talking point is being used to hammer Obama at every opportunity.

After it has been repeated one thousand times, the voters might well get it. (more…)

Perry not the establishment candidate

Thursday, September 8th, 2011

In a previous post, I remarked that with Governor  Romneycare dead on arrival, Perry was now the establishment candidate.  Seems I was wrong.  Looks like the establishment still has a hard on for Governor Romneycare.

If Governor Perry (welfare for Mexicans, underclass is the new normal) is the anti establishment candidate we are doomed, though perhaps doom will come a little slower than with governor Romneycare.

Sarah Palin’s speech

Wednesday, September 7th, 2011
