Hello, everybody. Been a little busy lately, so I haven't posted as much. Oh, let's see. What's going on? 4th of July is coming up and I actually get the day off. Wonder of wonders.

My Thoughts on McCain/Hayworth

Looks like Hayworth is dead in the water. Who knows what election day will bring, but my layman's opinion is that he's finished.

I will say this for JD, he's the one person who acted with graciousness toward Governor Palin even though she endorsed his opponent. That was pure class and a breath of fresh air considering the childish reaction of others who found themselves on the wrong end of a 'Cuda endorsement. As such he's probably the only non-Palin endorsed guy that I wouldn't mind seeing win.

Do I really care that he did cheesy infomercials? Not really. But I've never had the feeling that he was a winning candidate.

As for John McCain, I have a hard time believing that he will live up to his campaign promises. Tammy has said that he's offered to go on her show, and I would actually love to see that. I'd love to see someone really grill the guy, because he's most likely going to win. I want him to know that if he even thinks about dipping his little toe in that amnesty river again, we're going to raise all h***.

McCain's right on a lot of the issues, and he's wrong on some too. He reminds me of the little girl with a curl right in the middle of her forehead. When he's good, he's very, very good. When he's bad, he's horrid! But Hayworth ain't exactly the cat's pajamas either.

Who should people vote for? I'm not going to come down on a side. It's up to Arizona.

Limbaugh Flashback

These are from August and early September of 2008.

Rush talks about Sarah Palin's story and experience while waiting for McCain to introduce her in Dayton, Ohio:

Rush compares Sarah Palin to Clarence Thomas:

Rush calls Sarah Palin an accomplished woman:

Rush talks to two women who are very excited about the pick:

Palin in Virginia - Update

A write-up in the Virginian-Pilot:

"We've been registered Democrats for 30 years," said Ronnie Cooper, who drove up with his wife from Currituck County, N.C. "The party has lost its way. It's been taken over by a bunch of left-leaning, socialist ideologues. Sarah Palin and the tea party look like the answer."

Palin, who was the last of eight speakers to take the stage, got a standing ovation as she was introduced.

Her fast-paced speech was filled with many lines for which she's been known since gaining national prominence with her failed 2008 vice presidential bid.

"Don't retreat. Don't retreat," she said. "Just reload. That's what we've got to do."

There's a marked difference in Obama's view of the country from her own, she said.

"He sees a country that has to be apologized for around the world, especially to dictators," the former Alaska governor said. "We want to be a dominant superpower. It's in America's best interest and the world's that we are."

She said the nation needs to spend what is necessary on the military and "cut spending in every single department except defense."

She predicted nothing is going to change just by talking about those issues.

"I don't think they're going to listen to a hockey mom from Wasilla. I don't think they'll be listening to you, either," Palin said, drawing a cheer when she said what's needed is a "change in administration...."

Unlike more traditional political rallies, Sunday's event was not free.

Audience members paid between $33 and $133 for seats in the arena; a few ponied up $1,000 to $1,200 for VIP tickets that allowed them to pose for photos with Palin and North...

But for many in the audience, the reason they came was Palin. And they didn't mind buying a ticket to see her.

"We're here celebrating the American way of life," Andrew Sparks of Portsmouth said. "I want to hear what she has to say."

According to a few C4Pers who were at the event, it was pretty poorly organized. To me, seems like Palin and maybe Lee Greenwood were the bright spots.

I'm just lovin' that she said we need to change administrations in 2012. :-)


Here's more from Palin's speech, specifically about Israel:

JERUSALEM, Israel - Former Alaska governor and vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin accused President Barack Obama of kowtowing to Russia and China and selling out America's allies, such as Israel.

"Do they think, really, that we're getting anything in return for all this bowing and kowtowing and apologizing?" Palin asked participants at a gathering in Norfolk, Va., on Sunday, organized by a Norfolk talk radio station. "No. We don't get anything positive in return for this," she said.

"So while President Obama is getting pushed around by the likes of Russia and China, our allies are left to wonder about the value of an alliance with our country anymore. They're asking what it is worth," Palin said, citing congressional cuts in military allocations while simultaneously spending trillions in new deficits.

During his remarks, former Virginia Sen. George Allen called the Democratic majority in Congress "sanctimonious, pompous social engineers…spending on someone else's credit card…."

Allen too decried Obama's apologies for America's military strength.

"We don't need to apologize as Americans," Allen said. "Americans throughout history have liberated more people than any other country on earth, including the liberation of my mother from the Nazis," he said of his Jewish mother, Etty.

Palin was quick to defend Israel's response to pro-Palestinian activists aboard the Turkish-owned Mavi Marmara on May 31.

"Far too many in the media and in various governments rush to condemn Israel," Palin wrote on her Facebook page. "We must put the recent events off Israel's coast into the right perspective. This "relief" convoy was not about humanitarian aid, as the liberal mainstream media keeps reporting," she wrote.

"The whole operation was designed to provoke Israel, not to provide supplies to Palestinians held hostage by Hamas terrorists in Gaza. Anyone who sees the video of Israeli commandos being attacked as they land on that ship knows the people aboard were vicious thugs, not "peace activists." The media insults our intelligence with their outright mischaracterization of who these enemies are," Palin said.

"We can only hope the Obama administration does not join the anti-Israel chorus in the aftermath of this staged confrontation. Please, Mr. President, we need to let Israelis know we stand with them in their fight against terrorists and those who arm and support them. American and her ally, Israel, stand by waiting for your response," Palin wrote.

Happy Sunday!

Gooood morning!

We are getting very, very close to Independence Day, in more ways than one.

Here's what Sarah Palin was up to about a year ago:

Wow. A year? Seems more like ten. So many rivers crossed since then.

Speaking of Independence Day, I'm sure that by now you've seen this video:

What some do not know, is that the verse that man sang is not the second verse of the Star Spangled Banner, but rather the fourth. Here are the two verses in the middle:

2 -
On the shore, dimly seen thro' the mist of the deep,
Where the foe's haughty host in dread silence reposes,
What is that which the breeze, o'er the towering steep.
As it fitfully blows, half conceals, half discloses?

Now it catches the gleam of the morning's first beam,
In full glory reflected, now shines on the stream
'Tis the star-spangled banner. Oh! long may it wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave!

And where is that band who so vauntingly swore
That the havoc of war and the battle's confusion
A home and a country should leave us no more?
Their blood has washed out their foul footstep's pollution.

No refuge could save the hireling and slave
From the terror of flight, or the gloom of the grave,
And the star-spangled banner in triumph doth wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave.


An awesome video detailing the song's history is here.
"The thing that separates the American Christian from every other person on earth is the fact that he would rather die on his feet, than live on his knees!" -George Washington
"Heaven knows how to put a proper price upon its goods; and it would be strange indeed if so celestial an article as FREEDOM should not be highly rated." - Thomas Paine.
And, come on, ya gotta love Red Skelton:

Have a great day.
