Keith Olbermann is an idiot!

KEITH OLBERMANN: Legally, we've come a very long way since the Haymarket bombing in Chicago in 1886 when we wound up hanging some anarchist writers, who were not even in the state, as murderers by proxy. And legally there is this question of "temporal remoteness" [separation in time between the statement and the act]. You say this now on the radio, it happens in August. It's not like yelling "fire!" in a crowded theater; it is protected speech. But do you think that Limbaugh has any idea that were he to repeat what he said on the air, say the day before the convention, or during it, he might actually be morally or legally responsible for incitement to riot?

He is talking about comments Rush made about the Dem convention in August. He fails to mention that the basis for these comments comes from people like Al Sharpton who said on O'Reilly that if the nomination is taken away from Obama that their would be demonstrating at the Dem convention organized by Sharpton himself. Also the site called is all about causing anarchy at the Dem convention in August.

For Olberman to suggest that this was all Rush's idea is a bald-faced lie and ignores the facts that are staring him right in the the face. Of course Olby never let a fact get in the way of a "Worst Person In the World" award.

The look of defeat?

Well, according to the US press Basra was a victory for Sadr, sure looks like it...

The men in black vanish and Basra comes to life

The first Western journalist to enter the city since Operation Charge of the Knights was launched a month ago

A month ago, any woman daring to wear bright clothing in Basra would have drawn the wrath of the militiamen

Iraq: Iraqi forces see victory in Basra

Young women are daring to wear jeans, soldiers listen to pop music on their
mobile phones and bands are performing at wedding parties again.

All across Iraq’s second city life is improving, a month after Iraqi troops
began a surprise crackdown on the black-clad gangs who were allowed to
flourish under the British military. The gunmen’s reign had enforced a
strict set of religious codes.

Yet after three years of being terrified of kidnap, rape and murder – a fate
that befell scores of other women – Nadyia Ahmed, 22, is among those
enjoying a sense of normality, happy for the first time to attend her
science course at Basra University. “I now have the university life that I
heard of at high school before the war and always dreamt about,” she told The
. “It was a nightmare because of these militiamen. I only attended
class three days a week but now I look forward to going every day.”

She also no longer has to wear a headscarf. Under the strict Islamic rules
imposed by the militias, women had to cover their hair, could not wear jeans
or bright clothes and were strictly forbidden from sitting next to male
colleagues on pain of death.

“All these men in black [who imposed the laws] just vanished from the
university after this operation,” said Ms Ahmed. “Things have completely
changed over the past week.”

If she even doesn't know the price of gas how can she lower it!

Why I wish it was Romney...

John McCain on the NCGOP ad about Wright/Obama and the Democrat Gubernatorial candidates;

"They're not listening to me because they're out of touch with reality and the Republican Party. We are the party of Abraham Lincoln, Theodore Roosevelt and Ronald Reagan and this kind of campaigning is unacceptable," McCain told NBC's "Today" Show.

BBC admits Earth has not warmed since 1998

Global temperatures will drop slightly this year as a result of the cooling effect of the La Nina current in the Pacific, UN meteorologists have said.

The World Meteorological Organization's secretary-general, Michel Jarraud, told the BBC it was likely that La Nina would continue into the summer.

This would mean global temperatures have not risen since 1998, prompting some to question climate change theory.

But experts say we are still clearly in a long-term warming trend - and they forecast a new record high temperature within five years.

100 Years and the media

The media is so in the tank for Obama that they are failing to do the most routine and fundamental work in their role as alleged journalists. They are allowing Barack Obama to continuously misquote and mischaracterize John McCain's now infamous 100 years in Iraq comment. The reason they are allowing Obama to continue lying about what McCain said is because they want him to be the next president. Its just that simple.

Questioner: President Bush has talked about our staying in Iraq for fifty years…

McCain: Maybe a hundred. Make it one hundred. We’ve been in South Korea, we’ve been in Japan for sixty years. We’ve been in South Korea for fifty years or so. That’d be fine with me as long as Americans are not being injured or harmed or wounded or killed. Then it’s fine with me. I would hope it would be fine with you if we maintain a presence in a very volatile part of the world where Al Qaeda is training, recruiting, equipping and motivating people every single day.

This is why we are dependent on foreign oil...

And I don't want to hear anymore screaming about getting off foreign oil when the alternatives available to us "protected" ;
California moved a step closer to permanently protecting its shores from offshore oil drilling Monday when the House approved legislation to ban development in federal waters along all 76 miles of Sonoma County’s coastline and off the southern tip of Mendocino County’s coast.

The measure would more than double the size of two existing National Marine Sanctuaries near San Francisco and Marin - Gulf of the Farallones and Cordell Bank. The newly protected zone would stretch from Bodega Bay to Point Arena and would extend about 50 miles off the coast - 2,093 square nautical miles, an area roughly the size of Delaware.
