ST update and open thread

Posted by: Phineas on October 9, 2009 at 3:37 pm

I’ve just heard from Our Hostess: She’s still under the weather and needs a couple more days of rest. I suspect a Rahm Emanuel plot….  Sick

I’m snowed under with work for the rest of the afternoon, but SteveEgg might be along later to toss some more red meat …er… posts your way. Until then, I’m declaring an open thread.

Have at!

    As for ST’s condition, I blame Bush, of course.

    Two items of interest from today’s Philadelphia Inquirer –

    First, George Parry, with tongue firmly in cheek, tells us why we lost the Olympics. Money quote:

    Obama needs to get back to rolling around on the floor and wailing apologies to anybody who will listen. Otherwise, he is just going to keep on confusing the hell out of everybody, and the result will be more Olympic fiascoes.

    Second, and more disturbing, is this item from the AP: Obama open to Taliban role?

    WASHINGTON – President Obama is prepared to accept some Taliban involvement in Afghanistan’s political future and will determine how many more U.S. troops to send to the war based only on keeping al-Qaeda at bay, a senior administration official said yesterday.

    So Duh-1 would be satisfied with allowing the islamofascists to enforce mandatory burkas for women, stoning gays, blowing up ancient Buddhas, and eventually sheltering al Qaeda again. Show of hands, please, if you’re surprised.

    Hmm…no one?

    I think part of this relates to his silly “Peace Prize”. How can he listen to his generals now?? He’s a man of peace – he can’t order a new surge!! Why, someone on the Nobel committee might frown at him, and he can’t have that.

    He has no problem with the entire world being run by anti-American hatemogering dictators. But the idea that Honduras might honor and observe its own constitution unsettles him. Geez, next thing you know, someone might get the crazy idea that our constitution means something.

    Here’s all you need to know about Obama: he’s perfectly comfortable sitting down endlessly at the table with islamofascist murderers, but he wets his pants at the idea of spending a half hour talking to Chris Wallace.

    GWR; I’m shocked, SHOCKED that the second item came out in the same news cycle as the Obama Nobel Piec…er, Peace Prize.

    In fact, David Frum and Rush Limbaugh both said that part of the expected payback for awarding the Piece Prize was that Obama would not fully-reinforce Afghanistan.
