A comment by a cultural icon

on what passes as culture today.


My thanks to Ken!

McCain still has problems in knowing

who his friends are.

A McCain campaign aide actively pushed an incendiary, racially-charged video that uses the controversial words of Barack Obama's pastor to tar Obama as unpatriotic -- despite the fact that McCain himself has suggested that Obama shouldn't be held accountable for Wright's views.

The aide, Soren Dayton, who works in McCain's political department, has been suspended from the campaign, a McCain spokesperson, Jill Hazelbaker, confimed to me.


And note that no one says that the contents aren't accurate.

MSNBC has revealed that Hussein's passport

file has been breached.

And, naturally, Hussein's minions are in high dungeon.

The State Department is blaming three low level staffers.... I don't know...

Can anyone confirm Sandy Berger's location?

Global Warming fails to defend Chicago!

Continuing its year long retreat, Global Warming has abandoned Chicago to the clutches of a spring snow storm of 6 to 8 inches.

But the planet, according to Pope Algore and his cadre of climatology for dummies, must be saved.

In related news many expect Hussein's Spiritual Advisor, aka Reverend Wright, to note that America is to blame for AIDS, crack cocaine and Global warming.

If you don't drive and don't give a flip about

the economy...

Vote Democratic!!!

Rep. John Dingell, D-Mich., wants to help cut consumption with a gas tax but some don't agree with the idea, according to a new poll by the National Center for Public Policy Research.
The poll, scheduled to be released on Thursday, shows 48 percent don't support paying even a penny more, 28 percent would pay up to 50 cents more, 10 percent would pay more than 50 cents and 8 percent would pay more than a dollar.

As for those who say they would pay more for gasoline to fix a NON problem, all I can say is that the Stupid Epidemic is worse than I thought.

Please please

tell me this isn't real.

A correction

In the interest of accuracy I note that the picture shown below was taken the first week of April last year when we were in the throes of a full fledged Man Made Global Warming attack. Having beat back the attack, the picture to the far left was yesterday. The snow shot was about a week ago. I believe it is safe to say that Mr. Squirrel was happier while being ravaged by GW. I know I was.

In the meantime, people keeping asking hard questions. Here is one from Dr. Roy Spencer.

2) And regarding those observational estimates of (somewhat) positive cloud feedbacks: How do you know that the cloud changes that have been observed during temperature changes really are “feedbacks”? In other words, how do you know that the temperature changes caused the cloud changes, rather than the other way around?...

The fact that we don’t have a good enough understanding (or observations) of cloud changes, or precipitation efficiency changes, on decadal time scales to document such potential mechanisms seems like pretty weak justification for blaming all of our recent warming on mankind. And if you say, “well, the IPCC doesn’t claim that ALL of the warming is manmade…”, then tell me: About what percentage of the warming IS natural, and how did you come up with that quantitative estimate?...

I fear that the sloppy science that too many climate researchers have lapsed into could, in the end, hurt our scientific discipline beyond repair. The very high level of certainty (90%) claimed by the IPCC for their manmade explanation for warming can not be justified based upon the scientific evidence, and is little more than an expression of their faith that they understand the causes of climate variability – which they clearly don’t.

It's not the scientists that I worry about. The bad ones will eventually get washed out merely because facts and natural laws do not change. What I worry about is that the scare merchants are creating a nation of know-nothings.

I think it is counterintuitive for us to believe we can pollute and create emissions and not expect nature to be messed up. Its like saying dumping toxic chemicals in the water won't cause mutations of frogs in river deltas, or that top soil erosion is not happening.

The fact that carbon dixiode was taught as a natural cycle and is not a pollutant was taught in the 9th grade when I went to school. Evidently it is not being taught that now. Such failures in education has led to several generations who can not think for themselves, and thus believe any thing they are told.

And that's scary.
