Bill O'Reilly surely has heard about mega-bucked-up Letterman's latest two contributions to the national discourse, i.e (1) comparing Sarah Palin's look to that of a slutty flight attendant and (2) mentioning Sarah's 14-year old daughter being raped by A-Rod during the seventh inning break at the Yankees game.

Is Bill ready to poll his audience on the Letterman/Barry O phenomenon? For example,what position does Letterman take with Barry? Does he ever vary it? After Barry, would he ever go back? etc etc,

'Feel the hate' for Obama
By TORI CHEIFETZ

A new video posted on the Internet featuring inebriated American Jewish youth in a Jerusalem bar spouting hate-filled sentiments has garnered massive exposure and caused a firestorm in the media and the Jewish world.

In the video, filmed on June 3 and titled "Feeling the Hate in Jerusalem on the Eve of Obama's Cairo Address," the visitors to Israel are asked their opinions on President Barack Obama and his relationship to the Jewish state (text continues after clips below).

thorn, sorry.. but if you wanna talk racism then most of the teams have something in their closet INCLUDING the Stankees.

Here's a presumably lieberal take on Mr. Steinbrenner:

http://www.nyu.edu/classes/keefer/ww1/smit.html

"
If a man is judged by winning than [sic] Steinbrenner is the king of the mountain, but if a man is judged on his moral values than Steinbrenner is the king of another type of mountain. Is Mr. Steinbrenner the genius of the game, the new mold of owners that he claims to be or is he a publicity seeking, egotistical, crude, racist, socialite bigot with money and influence who has been lucky and should not be allowed to own the New York Yankees?
"

JUST TO KEEP THINGS IN PERSPECTIVE...

re the video FEELING THE HATE (Young Jews visiting Israel, some in their cups, commenting on Obama.)

"The comments of the interviewees are reprehensible and are not reflective of the attitude of the vast majority of Israelis," said Alan Schneider, B'nai B'rith World Center director.

"You can get this kind of comment anywhere if you go looking for it. I don't think it contributes anything at all to the debate," he added.

Alan Hoffmann, director-general of the Jewish Agency's Education Department, was likewise disconcerted by the video.

"On the basis of a group of inebriated teenagers, to draw any conclusions about the quality of Jewish and Zionist education is really unacceptable," he told the Post.

"Whoever prepared this went out of their way to find people who have clearly been drinking," Hoffmann said. "It makes me wonder about the motivations of those who edited this video."

The spokesman for Democrats Abroad in Israel, Sheldon Schorer, called the video "useless."

"This video is of no value whatsoever. If you removed the expletives you'd be left with very little material," Schorer said.

The video, which he noted was made before Obama's speech, "should be ignored as a silly piece and as more of a comment on the depth to which the Internet can sink."

"The journalist really should have gone out to find people who had an opinion and supported their opinion. You can't have an intelligent discussion with someone who is inebriated," he said.

The Anti-Defamation League declined to comment on the video.

AN OPEN LETTER TO PRESIDENT OBAMA

By Lou Pritchett

Dear President Obama:

You are the thirteenth President under whom I have lived and unlike any of the others, you truly scare me.

You scare me because after months of exposure, I know nothing about you.

You scare me because I do not know how you paid for your expensive Ivy League education and your upscale lifestyle and housing with no visible signs of support.

You scare me because you did not spend the formative years of youth growing up in America and culturally you are not an American.

You scare me because you have never run a company or met a payroll.

You scare me because you have never had military experience, thus don't understand it at its core.

You scare me because you lack humility and 'class', always blaming others.

You scare me because for over half your life you have aligned yourself with radical extremists who hate America and you refuse to publicly denounce these radicals who wish to see America fail.

You scare me because you are a cheerleader for the 'blame America' crowd and deliver this message abroad.

You scare me because you want to change America to a European style country where the government sector dominates instead of the private sector.

You scare me because you want to replace our health care system with a government controlled one.

You scare me because you prefer 'wind mills' to responsibly capitalizing on our own vast oil, coal and shale reserves.

You scare me because you want to kill the American capitalist goose that lays the golden egg which provides the highest standard of living in the world.

You scare me because you have begun to use 'extortion' tactics against certain banks and corporations.

You scare me because your own political party shrinks from challenging you on your wild and irresponsible spending proposals.

You scare me because you will not openly listen to or even consider opposing points of view from intelligent people.

You scare me because you falsely believe that you are both omnipotent and omniscient.

You scare me because the media gives you a free pass on everything you do.

You scare me because you demonize and want to silence the Limbaughs, Hannitys, O'Relllys and Becks who offer opposing, conservative points of view.

You scare me because you prefer controlling over governing.

Finally, you scare me because if you serve a second term I will probably not feel safe in writing a similar letter in 8 years.

THIS JUST IN/////RADIO MONICA/////Monica is beginning to see what gV knows: Sarah Palin is an existential threat to Mondo Lib. She's dynamite in a way that grey-haired white guys, like a Newt Gingrich, despite his smarts, is not. This explains why a Letterman feels driven to the gutter, sniping at her and her family---not to mention his dirty-minded secret attraction.

Monica is moving closer to a GAB nomination as the first Honorary Redneck Woman in Ivy League history. Almost daily she seems to be moving in that direction. Would she burn all her bridges to the RNW, the Republican National Wuss?

Rev. Jeremiah Wright says "Jews" are keeping him from President Obama

http://www.dailypress.com/news/dp-local_wright_0610jun10,0,7603283.story

The Rev. Jeremiah Wright says he does not feel any regrets over his severed relationship with President Barack Obama, a former member of the Chicago church in which Wright was the longtime pastor.

Wright also said that he had not spoken to his former church member since Obama became president, implying that the White House won't allow Obama to talk to him. He did not indicate whether he had tried to reach Obama.

"Regret for what... that the media went back five, seven, 10 years and spent $4,000 buying 20 years worth of sermons to hear what I've been preaching for 20 years?

"Regret for preaching like I've been preaching for 50 years? Absolutely none," Wright said.

Wright said that when he went to the polls, he did not hold any grudge against Obama.

"Of course I voted for him; he's my son. I'm proud of him," Wright said. "I've got five biological kids. They all make mistakes and bad choices. I haven't stopped loving any of them.

"He made mistakes. He made bad choices. I've got kids who listen to their friends. He listened to those around him. I did not disown him."

Asked if he had spoken to the president, Wright said: "Them Jews aren't going to let him talk to me. I told my baby daughter, that he'll talk to me in five years when he's a lame duck, or in eight years when he's out of office. ...

"They will not let him to talk to somebody who calls a spade what it is. ... I said from the beginning: He's a politician; I'm a pastor. He's got to do what politicians do."

Wright also said Obama should have sent a U.S. delegation to the World Conference on Racism held recently in Geneva, Switzerland, but that the president did not do so for fear of offending Jews and Israel.

"Ethnic cleansing is going on in Gaza. Ethnic cleansing (by) the Zionist is a sin and a crime against humanity, and they don't want Barack talking like that because that's anti-Israel," Wright said.

Wright is in Hampton this week attending Hampton University's 95th Annual Ministers Conference. The son of a pastor, Wright said he has attended the conference since he was a child – though he was not spotted at the conference in 2008 during the heat of the debate over comments he made that many in the media branded racially divisive.

Perhaps without the Wright controversy, the issue of race might not have become a part of the 2008 presidential campaign.

After the initial rounds of the controversy, Obama made his famous speech in Philadelphia on race relations, in which he said he could no more disown Wright than his own grandmother.

But the issue heated up after more comments by Wright at the National Press Club and from other controversial speakers at Trinity United Church of Christ in Chicago. Obama eventually distanced himself from the church.

Elderly gunman kills guard at Holocaust Museum

http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20090610/ap_on_re_us/us_holocaust_museum_shooting

An elderly gunman, said by authorities to have a violent and virulently anti-Semitic past, stepped inside the crowded U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum on Wednesday, opened fire with a rifle and fatally wounded a security guard before being shot by other officers.

The assailant was hospitalized in critical condition, leaving behind a sprawling investigation by federal and local law enforcement and expressions of shock from the Israeli government and a prominent Muslim organization.

Washington Police Chief Cathy Lanier said the gunman was "engaged by security guards immediately after entering the door" with a rifle. "The second he stepped into the building he began firing."

Obama confronting Israel to appease Arab world?

http://www.worldnetdaily.com/index.php?fa=PAGE.view&pageId=100683

"Generating this controversy and pressure on Israel regarding settlements right before his address last week to the Muslim world was a way for Obama to spruce up his credentials with the Arabs," said the aide, who spoke to WND on condition of anonymity.

"This seems to be part of a larger and even long-term strategy of putting the screws on Israel to help endear the U.S. to the Arab world," the aide said.

Oh please, please run her in 2012. After that debacle, Larry Flynt could run a dual centerfold of her AND Miss What's-Her-Name (formerly Miss California) in a very friendly naked Hustler magazine duo spread (pun intended) as their careers would bottom out exactly the same time.

Something, I might add, Tina Fey will never have to stoop to and wouldn't if she had to.

In 1933 Roosevelt passed the National Industrial Recovery Act (NIRA) which micro-managed the economy like we have never known (until now). It was Roosevelt's experiment into socialism. It was an effort to manage competition to make it more "fair" according to the Roosevelt Administration. It set wages, prices, and production and instituted massive regulations of the economy. It was declared unConstitutional in 1935. It was a complete failure and did not help the economy during the Great Depression. Now, Obama is attempting to re-institute the same socialist micro-management of the economy that has never worked and will destroy growth and job creation.

There is a middle ground. Sarah Palin hasn't found it yet.

David Letterman is the essence of scum and a pure bottom feeder. He made a joke about Sarah Palin's daughter getting "knocked up" by a New York Yankee baseball player.

I'm honestly not sure what your concern here is MJ. Wouldn't most folks want to know what the shooter's background and motivation was? Isn't that newsworthy? Many self-proclaimed white supremacist extremists such as KKK are also notoriously anti-semitic. I would think that that any thoughtful new source, conservative or liberal, would report thoroughly on the actions of either right or left-wing violent extremists.

Here are some examples of news sources that are focusing on such newsworthy facts:

From Fox News:

"The elderly man suspected of killing a security guard in Washington's Holocaust Museum on Wednesday is an anti-Semitic World War II veteran with links to white supremacist groups who tried nearly 30 years ago to take Federal Reserve board members hostage..."

From the Washington Times:

"The 88-year-old former Navy officer and Maryland resident was shot by security guards Wednesday afternoon when a gunman stormed the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum and opened fire, killing a security guard. He remained hospitalized late Wednesday.
For years, Mr. von Brunn openly expressed his hatred for Jews, minorities and the U.S. government on a Web site and had become a cause celebre in fringe white-supremacist circles after going to prison in a plot to try to kidnap members of the Federal Reserve Board in the 1980s. He was well-known by experts who monitor hate groups."

As we have opened the gates to Globalism, we have made the US a place to play out all worldly conflicts. Just as our food supply is contaminated and imported food and drugs are not inspected, we also have many people entering our country who are at odds with our way of living, or at odds with one another, and it is creating more domestic violence.

We need more standards and controls on the way our society is turning. If the US accepts all refugees from countries from all over the globe as their economies are shifting, we will have all global disputes played out on our streets.

I’m so tired of the LIEberals attacking Gov. Palin that I don’t pay attention anymore. Letterman is on too late for me, so I don’t watch him. I never liked Katie Couric, “anchowoman with the lowest ratings on television” and this just gives me another reason for NOT watching her. I don’t know what happened with Carrie Prejean, but I tend to think this exposes Trump for the phony he is.

The Republicans better watch out because many people admire Gov. Palin for working her way up from PTA meetings to Governor of Alaska. More people (IMHO), especially women, can relate to Governor Palin than they can for relate to Newt. I do feel sorry for Mitt because I think he should have won the nomination, but was blocked by certain factions in the party.

Rips people questioning eligibility as being 'out there in a scary place'
Posted: June 10, 2009

Fox News anchor Shepard Smith, host of the top-rated evening cable newscast, believes Americans challenging the eligibility of Barack Obama to hold the office of president are "crazies," saying "there is no truth whatsoever" to the suggestion Obama is not a "natural born citizen."

gringoNOTE: Obama's own website admits that he was born with dual citizenship, his father Kenyan, which ipso facto negates the definition of "natural born." Repeat: Does anyone know what Shepard Smith's I.Q. is?


Nationwide attention about President Obama's lack of producing a long-form birth certificate proving his eligibility for office got a boost today when top-rated radio host Rush Limbaugh joked about the subject in comparing Obama to God.

Asking rhetorically what God has in common with Obama, Limbaugh said, "Neither has a birth certificate."

I saw you on the O'Reilly Factor last night; you were used as a stereotypical recovery from argumentative discourse given to Bill by a level-headed rationalist politician. It is always nice to see the screen switch to two people agreeing with one another, allowing the shameless outbursts of bigoted tangents. After watching the show, I had a few questions.

First: How did you get a PhD? Can we see some of your papers? What was your dissertation on? These are honest questions.

Second: If your readership really believes that Sarah Palin would make a good presidential hopeful, then that's just ridiculously wonderful. I hope your blog acts as a funnel for all the unfunny idiots browsing the web. They obviously have no idea how to navigate the facts. Your selective attention is crippling to my hopes for world reform every single day of my life.

Third: Pat Robertson is a bigot. How can you call a video parodying him a hate crime? Seriously, think about it. Even if you're joking, these sorts of talks help to form public opinion. I know that you are consciously manipulating it...or maybe you're really just that stupid, but take a moment to think about it. And you spout this bullshit while people are being killed for being black, homosexual, or whatnot. You write off any kind of level-headed consideration for humanity as liberal, when really it is discourse invested in knowledge that exists for you to read. But you are resistant...why?

It's great that today people can flaunt their own stupidity to form political parties around the concept:

HOW PAILIN FOR 2012?

Here is a clue on how to over-run and smash the Republican National Wuss, the Purple Hand and the vicious guttersnipe Letterman-bots of Mondo Lib: White-haired white guy Newt Gingrich, not as a candidate, but as a gracious leading braintruster for the electric Sarah Palin. This will also make clear that Mitt Romney's talents can be used as Treasury Secretary etc. He can also be a welcome part of Palin's braintrust, if he's willing to humble himself. Here is an example of how Newt can serve both Palin and America. (Our Monica is urged to take note, even if she--- unlike the brilliant. confident DANIEL HANNAN, Tory MEP in the UK--- will not acknowledge reading her own weblog.)

Once, We Would Have Called It a Scandal
by Newt Gingrich

There was a time when we would have called it a scandal.

In 1921, oil tycoon Harry Sinclair gave several prize head of cattle and around $269,000 to President Harding's Secretary of the Interior, Albert Fall.

In return, Sinclair got the exclusive rights to drill in an oil field in Wyoming. Sinclair's no-bid contract became the Teapot Dome scandal, the most notorious example of political corruption in America prior to Watergate.

Between 2000 and 2008, the United Auto Workers (UAW) union gave $23,675,562 to the Democratic Party and its candidates.

In 2008 alone, the UAW gave $4,161,567 to the Democratic Party, including Barack Obama.

In return, the UAW received 55 percent of Chrysler and 17.5 percent of GM, plus billions of dollars.

But nobody's calling this a scandal. It's time we start.
2000-2008 UAW Giving: $23.7 million to Democrats. $193,540 to Republicans
The almost $24,000,000 the UAW has given to Democrats since 2000 compares with the $193,540 the union has given to Republicans.

Here is a clue on how to over-run and smash the Republican National Wuss, the Purple Hand and the vicious guttersnipe Letterman-bots of Mondo Lib: White-haired white guy Newt Gingrich, not as a candidate, but as a gracious leading braintruster for the electric Sarah Palin. This will also make clear that Mitt Romney's talents can be used as Treasury Secretary etc. He can also be a welcome part of Palin's braintrust, if he's willing to humble himself. Here is an example of how Newt can serve both Palin and America. (Our Monica is urged to take note, even if she--- unlike the brilliant. confident DANIEL HANNAN, Tory MEP in the UK--- will not acknowledge reading her own weblog.)

G-man- Two questions for ya.

1. Huckabee finished as a strong contender in 2008. He seems to have have a likeable "aw shucks" Will Rogers style and he handled himself very well in the debates. Do you not see him as a strong contender?

2. Why are you so obsessed about having Ms. Crowley acknowledge you on her blog. As far as I can tell, nobody else here seems to be driven by this need for recognition by our blog host. (She most likely does read all the comments and probably appreciates Ummah's wit as much as I do).

"Gov. Palin has every right to defend her UNDERAGE daughter from a powerful media person’s tasteless joke."

Have to agree with you there. Politicians' kids should be off limits.

Just because someone is a lousy parent (as are at least 75% of America) doesn't make them a bad politician or any less professional.

One could actually make an argument that the more time they spend on their job, the worse a parent they would be.

"X-nut, you make some good points sometimes. Too bad you are also a 9-11 conspiracy wack-job."

If you're referring to me, I can't take credit for that post, as it was not me.

Dubyah was out of the loop of 9-11 (too dumb to trust) outside of the bare need-to-know necessities Poppy told him on the golf course.

That's the reason for the stupid look during "My Pet Goat"; he was listening to what was happening in his cochlear implant and had no idea exactly how it was all going down.

Let's put this stupid professional sports homoerotica to rest now, shall we?

97% of all professional athletes are registered democrats.

There. That should do it.

First: How did you get a PhD? Can we see some of your papers? What was your dissertation on? These are honest questions.

Hey, that's an interesting query. Good for you.

Now how about this? We see Monica's at the same time that we see Obama's.

Deal?

ps. Won't mention birth certificates too. You don't want to go there, do you?
