Yucca Reid. Southern cap and tax. Whole Foods sirloined. Obama deflated. Plus more.

There is always good news and bad news. The bad news about this
article was that it was bad news. The good news was that it
showed Obama yet again, in his real colours — public mischief
thinly wrapped in tacky emoting camouflage. This is the work of a
bunch of lunatics way out-of-touch with mainstream opinion. These
guys are dilettantes and incompetents, they have no understanding
of their limitations and their story is increasingly about over
reach and clumsy, tin-eared public manipulations. Every article
like this, and they come in all the time, is yet another
indication that the Obama super tanker is on a course straight
for a great rocky reef. Conservatives can take heart everywhere
that the opposition is turning out to be so stupid and self
destructive — why waste your ammunition when your enemy is hell
bent on shooting himself in both feet? With enemies like the
Obamanistas, conservatives are going to make a lot of friends.
Sit back and enjoy the show.

I note that within Matthew Vadum’s “Special Report” he makes the following odd statement:
“Yearwood, who uses the honorific ‘Reverend’ before his name…”
This implies that Rev. Yearwood is not entitled to the honour. However, it is well known that the Rev. Yearwood is an ordained minister of the Church of God in Christ. The COGIC is the largest Pentecostal church in the U.S.
The Spectator should retract the statement and issue a

CAST INTO DARKNESS
Re: Nicole Russell’s Whole Foods, Half a Brain:
I suppose this is yet another example of how, among liberals,
unless one believes in the One True Faith one way, one is cast
into the outer darkness with the Republicans and

I too have visited Whole Foods here in NJ both in Chatham and West Orange…what a bunch of snooty assholes!
Most of the ones shopping look as if they have been starved in a concentration camp! This is healthy???? NOT!
Prices are ridiculously high! Try buying Filet Mignon…you think you we’re paying for Kobe beef!
I went there referred by a friend, I won’t be going back
ALL THAT HOT AIR
Re: Ralph R. Reiland’s The Collapse of Obama’s Hot Air Balloon:
Depressing read. One might say the world’s greatest country in
the history of man does not deserve such and I would certainly
agree. It obviously has a lot to do with the almost total
breakdown of the nation’s public (and in some cases private
education) education system as well as people’s rejection of the
type of lukewarm religion we get in the so called mainline
protestant and Roman Catholic churches today along with many
other culture issues. However, the Republican Party (the “dumb
party” according to William Kristol) comes in for a large part of
the blame. No serious party would have nominated such “unserious”
candidates as Robert Dole and John McCain and expect to prevail
but did they actually expect to win? I wonder? To bastardize a
quote by a long ago Supreme Court member, “one idiot nominee is
bad but forgivable but two within three generations or so is
either a tragedy or a conspiracy.” Please, let’s return to the
“smoke filled rooms” to pick the nominees.

Buyer’s remorse for some equals “we warned you” for others.
Regarding the central committee’s standards, wonder if they’ll
also have standards based on IQ or scientific literacy or
economic literacy? Character? Physical descriptors? I’m thinking
if they do, they may have to eliminate some of their very own,
from the highest to lowest post.

A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
