See ya next week…
I am going to be out of cell range and away from tv and radio so if Ping Pong starts a war send up a flair.
Lawrence O’Donnell has been making some bullshit statements about waterboarding lately, as in a recent debate with Liz Chaney. Turns out he was just making it all up. What an asshole. Hugh Hewitt sets him straight.
LO’D: No, look, it turns out I’m right.
HH: It turns out you went to Wikipedia and found a reference. You have no idea what that means.
LO’D: No, but look. A lot of people have said it, I’ve written it.
HH: Sure, a lot of people on the left say all sorts of things.
LO’D: Wait, wait, wait. I know they do.
HH: “A lot of people” say we didn’t go to the Moon.
LO’D: I know, that’s why I said to you, that’s why I said to you at the beginning, I cannot cite anything for you. I’m going to go look it up. Now if I didn’t find anything in the time you gave me, this would have been much more fun for both of us.
HH: Larry, I’m kind of out there. When I go on television and I say something, I think you should have a specific example at your fingertips.
LO’D: Well wait, well now I do.
HH: Well yeah, but when you were on MSNBC, you didn’t, and you still don’t know if this is true.
LO’D: But I was right. I was right.
HH: No, you’re not right, because we don’t know what that waterboarding was, or if that was only for waterboarding. You’re going on a Wikipedia citation.
LO’D: Oh, yeah, that’s awful.
HH: Yeah, it is, actually.

In New York it is Rush and billionaire Tom Golisano leaving for lower taxes. Now up to a third of the taxable millionaires in the wretched state of Maryland have left as well. With some states offering an alternative of paying no state income tax, who wouldn’t.
On those missing returns, the government collects 6.25% of nothing. Instead of the state coffers gaining the extra $106 million the politicians predicted, millionaires paid $100 million less in taxes than they did last year — even at higher rates. – WSJ
John Galt indeed.

Steyn on the death of the newspaper…
“Keep rockin,” Tony Pierce advises his writers. Why not start rockin’? Tony sounds such a cool guy, he knows all the hepcat lingo. What a shame his newspaper isn’t as groovily written as his memos. Which may be why the Los Angeles Times’ parent company has had to file for bankruptcy protection. If this crate’s a-rockin’, it’s because Tony and his chums drove it over a cliff and it’s bouncin’ on the way down. – MacLeans

Monty Python did a version of this 40 years ago…
It’s odd enough that a Bedford father would actually call police after arguing with his son about cleaning his room.
Stranger still, the sloppy son is 28 years old and serves on the Bedford School Board. – cleveland.com
If abortion is such a great thing then why does it need to be rare?
Like many pro-choice politicians, Barack Obama says he wants abortion to be safe, legal, and rare, while doing everything in his power to advance it. He pays lip service to these canards when he needs political cover. Not surprisingly, that’s what he did at Notre Dame on Sunday. Shame on Father Jenkins, the trustees, and the faculty, for giving Obama a podium–and honorary degree–to make fools of a sea of undergraduates at America’s most celebrated Catholic college.
It would be like Ronald Reagan at Notre Dame saying that he wanted to take down Soviet communism while simultaneously subsidizing it with taxpayer dollars throughout Eastern Europe and the USSR. It would be like Reagan calling on Gorbachev to tear down the Berlin Wall while sending in cement trucks and rolls of barbed wire.
What was done by the American president at Notre Dame on May 17, 2009, as opposed to what was done by the American president at Notre Dame on May 17, 1981, was not fact but farce, not history but dupery. And yet again, the Religious Left has offered up itself in the ignominious role of sucker. – Weekly Standard
