Lauer Hearts al Qaeda

NBC’s Matt Lauer to Michele Bachmann:

If there are flickers, as you say, of al Qaeda among the rebels, would it not be a sign to them or showing them that the United States has compassion and we are willing to use our military might to help all people? – NewsBusters

Unintended Irony

Because Americans don’t get irony…

Environmentalist vs Environmentalist

Do birds trump green power? Ask Obama I guess…

Irony of ironies, wind energy — a preferred form of renewable energy among environmentalists — has animal rights advocates concerned about the hundreds of thousands of birds killed by wind turbines.

On Tuesday an international bird watchdog group based in Spain, Save the Eagles International (STEI), warned that the expected construction of 3.5 million wind turbines worldwide will result in the extinction of a variety of bird species.

Eco-Fascism In Action

Obviously that involves kinetic military action, particularly on the front end.” Orwell, or at least the guardians of Newspeak about whom Orwell wrote, would have been proud. – Roger Kimball

I’m sure a lot of people do…

Anthony Weiner said he wanted a waiver from ObamaCare. Now, this is rich because our colleague Anthony Weiner said that he wrote the bill for ObamaCare. In fact, his quote was “the bill and I are one”. Now, if Anthony Weiner wants a waiver, I want mine too. I want a waiver from the last two years of President Obama. Are you with me? – Michele Bachmann
