Glenn Beck - Ground Zero Mosque

First off, here's some truly shocking audio. The Imam behind the Ground Zero mosque refused to condemn Hamas. The really shocking part is what Glenn plays from a David Horowitz lecture:

Poor Wittow Jackie

Some Georgia Congressman got his panties all wound up in a bunch over Sarah Palin endorsing people. Apparently, it's okay for everyone else to do it, but not for her:

"What she's doing is dividing the Republican Party at a time when we don't need to be divided."


"My candidate could lose!" (At the time, Handel had not yet conceded.)

Aw, poor baby.

"Why Sarah Palin decided to get in the race is beyond me. I don't know why she feels compelled to get into primaries all over the country, but fortunately Georgia voters are doing their own thinking on things like this."

Uh, wasn't Nathan Deal, your guy, endorsed by Huckabee, Gingrich, and Cheney? And Romney endorsed Handel later on. Why discriminate against Sarah Palin?

Oh, that's right, because Palin's endorsement of Karen Handel was effective. It handed Karen a victory in the primary and gave your guy actual competition for the general. Heaven forbid you actually have to work for the nomination. These things are supposed to just fall in your lap.

I won't accuse this guy of sexism. I'll let SusanW do that for me:


It's okay for Newt and Mike and Mitt to endorse their candidates, but God forbid a woman give her opinion.


Nice to know who the Good Ol' Boys are, who can't keep from flappin' their gums about Sarah...

Keep it up you sorry sack...keep it up, nice and good like that, so we know who you are.

Jack continued:

"Karen Handel is a very decent candidate, but she's clearly the more moderate person in the race." Asked by the talk-show hosts if Palin should just butt out of primaries in general, Kingston replied, "I wish she will."

"Everyone in the [Georgia gubernatorial] race was solidly conservative, and Sarah Palin comes in and endorsed the moderate," Kingston said. To some, Handel is perceived insufficiently conservative on social issues involving abortion and child adoption by gay couples.

On its face that comment makes no sense. If everyone in the race was solidly conservative, how could there be a moderate to endorse?

Kingston's time would be better served figuring out how to answer the Democrats now that Nathan Deal is the nominee.

Oh, Kingston, who's dividing the party now?

Tribute to Ted Stevens

The Bob and Mark Show played this song as a tribute to Ted Stevens this morning, and I think it fits. It's also a new favorite song of mine. "I Am Alaska" by Hobo Jim:

Love Sandra Bullock - UPDATE

Ha! Check it out:

Levi Johnston wasted no time finding a date to the Teen Choice Awards in Los Angeles on Sunday after breaking off his engagement to Bristol Palin. The Alaskan Romeo showed up on the red carpet at the event as the plus-one to singer Brittani Senser. However, sources tell me Levi actually had his eye on another lady in attendance: Sandra Bullock.

"All night long Levi was trying to get close to Sandra," an award show insider tells me. "He desperately wanted to get his picture taken with Sandra hoping it would show up on the cover of a magazine or at least be able to meet her in person and give America's sweetheart his phone number. Sandra was having none of it, telling everyone, 'Get him away from me.'"

Levi, who clearly has no idea just how smart Sandra actually is, was seen making several futile attempts to catch her eye, all of which failed. Once he realized Sandra was out of his league, Levi was seen approaching at least three other female celebrities who also all refused to have their pictures taken with the fame-obsessed Alaskan.

"Levi's 15 minutes are definitely up but it seems no one has told him that yet," a Hollywood manager tells me. "After what he did to Bristol recently he has gone from being a bad joke to just a bad guy. No one wants to be seen hanging out with him, and leaving everyone to scratch their heads asking how he actually got invited to Teen Choice to begin with."

So Brittani Senser, I'm not exactly sure I know who you are (besides being a singer who'll star with Levi in a music video), but if you want to be known at all, you are going to have to stop inviting men like Levi to award shows with you. Even Kathy Griffin knows that this joke is played out.

Next time invite a family member or one of those cute single guys off 'Dancing With The Stars,' anyone but Mr. Johnston!


I cannot believe I'm about to say this... could it be that I agree with (gulp) Gryphen? Mixed with his typical Palin-hatred yesterday was this (and no, I'm not linking it. You know where it is if you really want to have your computer almost crash because of how horribly that site loads):


However right now this whole thing is nothing more than a Tank Jones version of smoke and mirrors. Check out this unbelievable, unless you know Tank of course, quote:

Asked whether he believes people will take the run seriously, with TV cameras rolling, Jones said: ''People questioned Jesus Christ, so I definitely don't care about these mere mortals questioning Levi Johnston.''

Yeah, THAT is how Jones handles the media. Now do you know why nobody takes Levi seriously?..

Look I don't want to be mean, but I have stepped in mudpuddles with more depth than Levi Johnston.

Of course before Levi can start on his new "political career" there is ONE teensy little thing he needs to get out of the way first:

Reads the statement, "The docu-soap will follow the ever controversial, headline making, matinee idol, handsome father of one as he embarks on a run for mayor of Wasilla, Alaska... [the] series will chronicle a 'no-holds-barred' period in Levi’s tumultuous life; co-raising his son Tripp, looking for love, and taking care of business for his fellow Wasillians. He will give us a real inside look into who he is as a father, a skilled hunter, an avid dirt biker, and of course his journey down the road of small town politics -- right after he gets his high school diploma."

That is almost like saying, "Hey I am going to be a famous race car driver, just as soon as I get my driver's license."

Look I really supported Levi in the past, and I do hope that he gets his act together in the future, but he has allowed himself to be turned into an absolute laughingstock, and that did not have to be the way this worked out for him. He has a young son to raise, does he really want to be known as the stupidest person in Wasilla, Alaska? Because I guarantee if he actually pursues this type of program, that is EXACTLY how he will be seen.

I say that's already how he's seen, but whatever. Of course Levi isn't even eligible to run for Mayor anyway, so this doesn't even matter. In the words of the current mayor of Wasilla:

“Well, it is a little early to declare. Usually most wait until the year the seat is up. But since I am nearly old enough to be Levi’s grandfather I think it would be wise for him to get a high school diploma and keep his clothes on. The voters like that!”

Restoring Honor

For some reason, watching that second video makes me think of this verse:

"Sanctify yourselves: for tomorrow the LORD will do wonders among you."

- Joshua 3:5

Movie Night

First off, here's the "LOL" moment of the day.

And now for our feature presentation, an old tear-jerker called "Penny Serenade," starring Cary Grant and Irene Dunne:
