    During the last year and a half or more of President Bush's presidency, countdown to President Bush's final day in office emblazoned all over the web was dam* near impossible to avoid. Each ensuing day drawing closer to President Bush's departure had the liberal, left-wing frothing at the mouth in crazed ferocity, rabid, celebratory glee at the very idea. And so to savor each and every day that draws closer to the day when BHO is booted out of office I've inaugurated the Obama:Countdown to Oblivion is regularly updated compendium of the latest news, developments on the 2012 presidential election...

    What I dubbed the Obama administration's "rapid and harsh turn against Israel" has had three quick, predictable and counterproductive results. These point to further difficulties ahead. First result: Barack Obama's decision to get tough with Israel translates into escalating Palestinian demands. In early July, Palestinian Authority chief Mahmoud Abbas and Saeb Erekat, his top negotiator, insisted on five unilateral concessions by Israel: an independent Palestinian state; Israel shrunk to its pre-June 1967 borders, minus a Palestinian land-bridge between the West Bank and the Gaza Strip; a Palestinian "right of return"; resolution of all permanent status issues on the basis of...

    RAPID CITY, South Dakota — A show where French performance artists vomited, simulated sex and threw fake feces was stopped by the promoter, who quickly apologized. Lisou Prout and Jean-Louis Costes also stripped and spit potato chips on the crowd at a local arts center. Audience members said the act depicted American life from birth to death. The show was stopped shortly after a simulated sex act involving a carrot. "I was told they were performance artists from France and were highly recommended. I think I was told wrong," said promoter Kevin Dorsman, who stopped the show. It was much...

    A lesbian firefighter in Minneapolis filed a discrimination suit Tuesday against the city's fire chief, a woman who happens to be the firefighter's former domestic partner. Capt. Jennifer Cornell sued in U.S. District Court in Minneapolis against Chief Bonnie Bleskachek, naming the city as a co-defendant, the Pioneer Press newspaper reported. Cornell claims Bleskachek denied her training opportunities and stood in the way of her advancement through "a history of animosity, ill-will, malice and bad faith conduct," the paper reported. The suit seeks an end to discrimination and $75,000 in damages. The case puts Mayor R.T. Rybak, who appointed Bleskachek...

"The decision is certainly in line with the tendency of this...
