  • Interior secretary to issue new drilling ban (Unfreakinbelievable)

    Interior Secretary Ken Salazar said Tuesday he will issue a new order imposing a moratorium on deepwater drilling after a federal judge struck down the existing one. Salazar said in a statement that the new order will contain additional information making clear why the six-month drilling pause was necessary in the wake of the Gulf oil spill. The judge in New Orleans who struck down the moratorium earlier in the day complained there wasn't enough justification for it. Salazar pointed to indications of inadequate safety precautions by industry on deepwater wells. "Based on this ever-growing evidence, I will issue a...

    CHARLESTON, S.C. -- John Kerry, the 2004 Democratic presidential nominee, gave Barack Obama a timely endorsement Thursday, snubbing Hillary Rodham Clinton as well as his own vice presidential running mate. Kerry came to South Carolina to embrace Obama, two weeks before the state's primary and with Obama needing a boost after Clinton's emotional victory over him in New Hampshire. Quoting a black American hero in endorsing the man who hopes to be the first black president, Kerry told a cheering crowd, "Martin Luther King said that the time is always right to do what is right." Now is the time,...

    As soon as I heard earlier today that John Kerry had endorsed Barack Obama, my first thought was the title of this DUmmie THREAD, "Why did Kerry stab Edwards in the back?" Sheesh! Talk about a lack of loyalty! This was probably the biggest act of political betrayal since, well, the Goracle endorsed Howard Dean over his 2000 running mate, Joe Lieberman. Of course, a lot of this endorsement has to do with Kerry's hatred for Hillary since he blames her in large part for his 2004 defeat. So let us now watch the DUmmies observe Kerry stabbing the...

    Clinton says Cheney wrong on her request By DEVLIN BARRETT, Associated Press Writer 15 minutes ago Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton on Wednesday accused Vice President Dick Cheney of falsely portraying her attempt to get Iraq planning information out of the Pentagon. The Democratic presidential front-runner has been hammering at the Bush administration for two weeks since a top Pentagon aide refused to tell her whether or how the military was planning for the eventual withdrawal of U.S. forces from Iraq. In a letter to the vice president, she accused Cheney of offering "inaccuracies" in opposing her request. She used even...

    Presidential wannabe Barack Obama came to Detroit earlier this week and hammered on Detroit automakers for spending too much time focusing on horsepower rather than fuel efficiency. Here's an example of his lovely comments: "For years, while foreign competitors were investing in more fuel-efficient technology for their vehicles, American automakers were spending their time investing in bigger, faster cars..."-SNIP-That must explain why the Illinois Senator and Presidential candidate owns a HEMI-powered V8 Chrysler 300C. Obviously it's Chrysler's fault Obama bought a big 5.7-liter engine from them -- he just didn't have a choice.

    (2007-04-19) — Yesterday’s Supreme Court ruling in Gonzales v. Carhart upholding the right of Congress and state legislatures to regulate abortion and, in particular, to ban partial-birth abortion, is “a blade to the back of the head of every woman in America,” according to Sen. Hillary Clinton, D-NY. “I know I speak for my sisters across the nation,” said Sen. Clinton, “when I say that I feel like someone grabbed me by the ankles, and jammed a pair of scissors into the base of my skull and then just sucked my brains out. This is devastating to our freedoms and...

    Last week, Seattle PI columnist Susan Paynter said that calling her "Hillary", or "Mrs. Clinton" is unfairly dismissive. (That column got enough reactions so that Paynter wrote this follow-up.) We should, said Paynter, call her "Senator Clinton". [snip] What's missing is her surname. Someone has apparently decided that Mrs. Clinton will be the first major single-name candidate since 1952, when Ike's P.R. gurus realized that "Eisenhower" was tough to fit on a bumper sticker.[snip] Mrs. Clinton announced her intentions via the Internet on a Web site called "Hillary for President. Incredibly, on the day of her announcement, the name "Clinton"...

    (CBS) LOS ANGELES -- Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton will visit Los Angeles Thursday to conduct a series of fund-raisers for her presidential campaign, one day after a former ally's criticism sparked a dispute between her campaign and that of Senator Barack Obama. DreamWorks SKG co-founder David Geffen made sharply critical remarks about Clinton and her husband, former President Bill Clinton, to New York Times columnist Maureen Dowd. "Everybody in politics lies, but they do it with such ease, it's troubling," Geffen said. Geffen's comments prompted the Clinton campaign to issue a statement calling for the Obama campaign to return the...

    WASHINGTON: Enough with The Joke, John Kerry says. The Massachusetts senator and former Democratic presidential nominee said Wednesday night that it is time to move on from his botched attempt at humor before the Nov. 7 congressional elections. Kerry had said people might get "stuck in Iraq" if they do not study hard and do their homework. He said he was trying to poke fun at President George W. Bush, but Bush and others accused him of criticizing the troops. "This is getting silly," Kerry said on CNN's "Larry King Live." "The country needs to think about a policy that...

    Democratic Sen. John Kerry, mulling a second bid for the U.S. presidency, finished dead last in a poll released Monday on the likability of 20 top American political figures. Among those placing ahead of Kerry were about a dozen potential 2008 White House rivals, including Democratic Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton of New York and Republican Sen. John McCain of Arizona. "This is bad, bad news for Kerry," said Peter Brown, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Polling Institute in Hamden, Connecticut, which conducted the survey. "Americans know who he is, and have pretty much decided they don't like him," said...

    The campaign season is over, but we cannot let pass Massachusetts Senator and still bitter presidential wanna-be John Kerry’s insult of our troops when he declared on a campus stop that students need to do well, or else “you get stuck in Iraq.” His completely in-character gaffe brought deserved condemnation, including some from leading Democrats.Kerry disappeared from the campaign trail, so as not to be a “distraction” to Democratic campaigns. But before he left he issued a non-apology apology in which he failed to actually apologize for the insult. He said: “I sincerely regret that my words were misinterpreted to...

    After listening to John Kerry this afternoon I am deeply disappointed how he handled defending his derogatory statements about our troops. I fully expected him to use far more imagination to spin his insults about our troops. I think Johnny is losing his touch. It's up to us to come up with some spins he can use attempting to defend the indefensible. I call Freepers to think of the most outlandish spin control for him. This will be a challenge trying to think like a socialist. All I ask is give it your best shot. There are no prizes only...

    It’s not Hillary’s fault that she tells lies — it’s her parents. At least, that’s what Hillary Clinton wants you to believe. You have to hand it to the Clintons — when they’re caught lying they can spin it into a nice story about their childhood. How sweet, in a pathologically deceptive kind of way. For years, Hillary Clinton was going around claiming that she was named after the first person to reach the summit of Mt. Everest, Sir Edmund Hillary. This has been reported as “fact” as late as a week ago in the New York Times. It didn’t...

Supporting an Iraqi war vet running as a Democrat for Henry Hyde's congressional seat? "I know something firsthand about the Swift Boat-style Republican attack ads of the last election -- but you don't have to take my word for it," Senator Kerry wrote in a March fundraising e-mail, on behalf of Tammy Duckworth, an amputee whom no one...

The Massachusetts Democrat offered the incendiary comments during an off the record meeting with liberal bloggers after a speech in Los Angeles to the Pacific Council on International Policy. According to the Web site L.A. Observed, Kerry asked the bloggers to keep his comments confidential; a request they apparently dismissed out of hand without telling him.

    As we watch the left of the Democratic Party press its case to return to the top of the heap in American politics, or at least evade the fate of the Dodo, we have ever more evidence validating an insight on which I stake my reputation as a political seer. To wit: partisan politics more often falls under the professional expertise of the psychiatrist than that of the political scientist. A learned shrink can often tell us more about a political issue than any other professional, not excluding a swami or a voodoo priest. Consider the ongoing controversy over Sen....
