Democrats find their issue,
in a binder

Orange County Register [CA], by Mark Steyn

Original Article

Posted By:supersid, 10/19/2012 5:28:26 PM

So the other morning a reader emails me a picture of a handful of women demonstrating outside the headquarters of the Ohio Republican Party – in what we expert analysts round about this point in the quadrennial election cycle like to call the critical battleground of the Buckeye State. The women each wore two giant pieces of cardboard, front and back. Ah, I thought, a timely protest. These activists understand that, with Obama’s flatline economy drifting inexorably to a $20 trillion federal debt, we’ll soon be living in cardboard shacks

Comments:
While republicans bring up trivial issues such as Lybia, national debt, obamacare etc., democrats debate substantive topics such as big bird and binders.

What did Mitt do wrong, besides speak a little awkwardly. His language usage was not optimal. What he did was solve a problem and hire women after actively recruiting them!

The campaign needs to get one of these women in an ad.

This is going to change no one's mind. They are playing to the Kool-Aid drinkers. People in this country are fed up with this kind of petty crap. I hope they keep it up. It shows how out of ideas they are.

I have paid attention to presidential campaigns, going back to FDR, and there has never been such a trivial issues campaign to sink as low as mr barack.
He and axelcrud and plouffer, are embarrassments to the political process.
dog on the roof of the car didn't work. cutting a kid's hair in h.s. didn't work. big bird didn't work. big house with elevator for cars didn't work. And binders didn't work - in fact, it is disappearing from sight quickly, because women are disgusted by it.
mr barack, he ain't got nuffin left, other than racism suggestions if you vote against him, and the mormon religion.
bye bye burock.

Steyn's in classic form here. "Leave it to Binder". OMG... too funny.

The ironic (and sad) thing is that the Presidential Daily Briefing is always delivered in ... a binder. If only Obummer had bothered to open it more often.

Mark is on the "mark" as usual. Tongue in cheek. Gotta love Mark Steyn. Okay, here's the issue for those who didn't read the article or haven't heard about Mitt's "gaff". It seems that Big Bird is using a binder to line his cage and Bert and Ernie are upset that their names aren't in it. Cookie Monster is angry because he thought it was a recipe binder of cookie recipes. And Mr. Snuffleuupagus is extremely disappointed that his picture wasn't on the cover of the binder. Oscar the Grouch is disappointed that he wasn't asked to me a debate moderator.

If you're scared and desperate....talk about office supplies. Makes a lot of sense to me. You'll notice that about 99% of the stump time of O and B is spent demonizing the competition. When's the last time O talked about his wonderful Obamacare? His great investments in green energy? His zero net job growth in three and half years? He doesn't want to remind his sheep how much of a failure he's been.

Sanford, Fla. - George Zimmerman, the neighborhood watch volunteer who fatally shot an unarmed black teenager, igniting a national debate on racial profiling and civil rights, was found not guilty on Saturday of the second-degree murder of Trayvon Martin. He also was acquitted of manslaughter, a lesser charge. After three weeks of testimony, the six-woman jury rejected the prosecution’s contention that Mr. Zimmerman had deliberately pursued Mr. Martin because he viewed the hoodie-clad teenager as a criminal and instigated the fight that led to his death. Mr. Zimmerman said he shot

Just when I thought the George Zimmerman "trial" couldn´t sink any lower, the prosecutorial limbo dancers of the State of Florida magnificently lowered their own bar in the final moments of their cable-news celebrity. In real justice systems, the state decides what crime has been committed and charges somebody with it. In the Zimmerman trial, the state´s "theory of the case" is that it has no theory of the case: might be murder, might be manslaughter, might be aggravated assault, might be a zillion other things, but it´s something.

Imagine this: Newspapers and broadcasters in China suddenly start to denounce the British government. They call it a ‘regime’. They say that its treatment of its Muslim minority is cruel and unjust.

And then all the major countries in the world agree to permit the direct supply of weapons to the rebels. Absurd? Wait and see.

Most countries in the world have irrelevant numbers of "immigrants." In the Americas, for example, only Canada, America, and the British West Indies have significant non-native populations. In Mexico, immigrants account for 0.6 percent of the population, and that generally negligible level prevails all the way down through Latin America until you hit a blip of 1.4 percent with Chile and 3.8 percent in Argentina. (Snip) But profound sweeping demographic transformation through immigration is a phenomenon only of the western world in the modern era, and even there America leads the way.

Shortly after Barack Obama finished his press conference after Dzhokhar Tsarnaev’s dramatic apprehension last night, a Russian newspaper reported that the president did not mention the “Russian footprint” in his address. (Snip) “Putin has repeatedly said there is no such thing as our terrorists and somebody else’s,” Peskov said. “One must not differentiate between them, deal with some and condemn others. They all deserve the same approach, the same rejection.” This was a reference to America’s vocal defense of the Chechen separatists in the 1990s

The bulletin said that the highest threat levels are the Middle East and North Africa, “and possibly occurring in or emanating from the Arab Peninsula.”

Common sense tells me that cops don´t need a Taser or a shotgun to subdue a 95-year-old man.

You don´t have to be gay or even Russian to feel the wrath of the Russian government´s homophobia. You could go to jail if you are "pro-gay," whatever that means. And that´s under just one of a growing number of hate-infused bills becoming law at a time when, as it happens, Russia is preparing to host the world in the next Winter Olympics. The perverse anti-gay legislation is inflaming an atmosphere of persistent intimidation and at times deadly violence against Russian gays and lesbians. The question now is: What should the rest of the world do?

Several skills that every kid once learned in school are going the way of the dodo in a hurry. Diagramming sentences is practically an extinct art, for example. Cursive handwriting and memorized multiplication tables look to be swiftly headed that way. Apparently, the next thing that kids will no longer need to learn is spelling and grammar.

I have a suggestion. How about an exhibit on Tawana Brawley? If the purpose of the new National Museum of African American History and Culture at the Smithsonian is to remember racial controversies, as the proposed Trayvon exhibit seems to confirm, then how about an honest look at the phenomenon of hate crime hoaxes? Particular attention should be paid to the role of the media in both the Trayvon and Tawana materials. Unquestionably, the media stirred up racial animus, and these incidents both contributed to raising racial tensions.

Police shot and killed an armed teen in the South Bronx early today after the suspect opened fire and refused to drop his gun, police said. Two rookie cops heard shots fired near East 151st Street and Courtlandt Avenue around 3 a.m. and ran in the direction of fire, police said. The uniformed officers saw Shaaliver Douse, 14, of the South Bronx, chasing another person through the streets, according to cops. Douse, who was arrested in May on attempted murder charges for shooting a 15-year-old, fired at the man running on East 151st Street this morning, police said.

An odd dark vertical line that was observed in the sky over Florida earlier this week has left meteorologists puzzled. The shadowy apparition was spotted and photographed by Mike Weight at Honeymoon Island State Park near Dunedin, Florida, Wednesday. Weight was walking on the beach at around 12.30pm. The day was bright and sunny, but there were thunderheads forming to the east. ‘I was looking North when I observed what looked like a ray of dark light coming down from a small cloud to the surface of the Gulf about a half-mile away,’ the 73-year-old man wrote in an email

The Dependably Unfaithful Colin Powell

In 2008 and then again in 2012, after retired four-star General Colin Powell endorsed and then voted for Barack Obama, the former Secretary of State´s sanity was already in question. At least now, after having his email account hacked by high-level security-breacher Guccifer, Colin Powell´s besmirching of the Republican Party´s "shift to the right" and "identity crisis" finally makes sense. It seems that for years the mannerly and always professional Colin Powell has been cyber-comporting with a 46-year-old Romanian European Parliament member, Social Democrat, and past spokesperson for Romanian president Ion Iliescu named Corina Cretu
