John McCain's War Record Under Assault UPDATE

I asked a question. It was answered. It is only fair that a correction to a story not appear hidden, but gets the same coverage as the original.

McCain Camp Challenges Mailer's Claims

The above appears to be not true.

I did not do the work. Jonn Lilyea of This Ain't Hell did the work. Go read his entire piece.

Read it here:

Vietnam Veterans Against McCain

This is difficult. I’m no big fan of John McCain, but I really can’t let this stand. I read about this from Return of the Conservatives by way of Invincible Armor;

I am no fan of Senator McCain, but I do not like back stabbers. Like John Kerry.

Get The Apologies Over With, We Got Work

Okay, has everyone on the left side of the aisle apologized for current, past and possible sins? Can we get back to what you all really stand for and quit the crappola about what your sorry for?

10 years on, Hillary Clinton reveals anguish over Lewinsky saga...
UPDATE: Man Apologizes After Racial Joke...
Hillary Clinton reveals personal anguish over Lewinsky saga...
MSNBC Host Chris Matthews Apologizes to Hillary...

A cigar for everyone who quits the "I am soooooo sorrry" chorus and start acting like adults. No, not you Bill. Nobody believes you anyway.

Now Ohio Dem Leader Needs Ethics Training For GOTV Training

Sen. Ray Miller (D., Columbus), new minority leader in the Ohio Senate after a cloak and dagger peer hall putsch, seems to have some questionable dealings that had some Democrats scratching their heads after they helped him topple Sen. Teresa Fedor of Toodeelydoo.

As to the fundraising efforts of the dozen Dems in the Ohio Senate I would have to assume that only paying less than half your bill will make the ledger sheet appear more robust.

Miller owes Downtown hotel $26,000
Records show that the National Progressive Leadership Caucus, founded by Miller, hosted a dinner at the hotel and was billed $46,278. After an initial payment of $20,000, the remainder of the debt remained unpaid, the records show. Message were left with Miller's office and the hotel seeking further details.

The debt was not listed on Miller's 2007 financial disclosure form for the state, which covered calendar year 2006.

Public officials aren't required to report debt incurred during normal business activities. There is, however, a space on the form for listing all names under which an official and family members do business. Miller did not list the Leadership Caucus there, nor does it appear as a registered corporation, nonprofit or political entity in state or federal databases.

The Center for Urban Progress, which Miller listed as his employer in that year, failed to file its statement of continued existence in 2005 and had its business status canceled, state business filings show.

So the new minority leader started one group, was paid by another and neither are a real business in Ohio. I guess unreal businesses don't have to pay their bills nor do they have to follow the law concerning disclosure because since they're not real then their expenses and other obligations aren't real either. I have to wonder if Rev. Strickland was treasurer or just the financial advisor.

It is going to be an interesting year right here in the heart of it all.

Marcy Morlock's Mortgage Misfire

Marcy Kaptur, our Ohio Congressperson, who as a politically progressive personage believes all Eloi capitalists are evil geniuses attempting to make all others into Morlocks who are only allowed to stoke the fires of hell that power the capitalism that has scorched and devastated our land.

Only, Marcy had the wrong Eloi.

Bernanke's got a sense of humor, and needs it

Rep. Marcy Kaptur (D-Ohio) may want to take a little more time reading the bios of congressional hearing witnesses.

At today's House Budget Committee hearing at which Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke is testifying, Kaptur had just asked Bernanke this somewhat mind-boggling question: what did he think of the idea that Wall Street "bankers, fiananciers and board members" who contributed to the subprime mortgage mess be forced to "pay back" their salaries and bonuses to help pay for the economic stimulus package being discussed in Washington. At least she didn't ask him his view on perpetual motion machines.

Leading into her next question she said: "… Seeing as how you were the former CEO of Goldman Sachs…."

"No, no, no, you're confusing me with the Treasury Secretary, said a smiling Bernanke."

In short, Marcy, munchkins are munchkins and not all Elois are the same. Some Elois are created more equal than others. Apparently, so are some Morlocks such as Marcy who helped her "friend" avoid all the mess of a mortgage by buying a house for her.

Ballot Rules Just As Important As Border Rules

I hope this doesn't get Al Sharpton's silk tangerine panties in a bunch over illegals being made to feel illegal:

New rules mean longer lines coming to borders
Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff tells critics to 'grow up'

I am sure somebody somewhere will point out that this ruling disproportionally affects women, children and minorities. Nothing says fascist like making an illegal feel illegal.

Question: Will a decreased border boom mean no ballot bonus for Democrats? Or will the Democrats just have a greater cemetery GOTV effort.

Pelosi & Carville's secrete plan: Have Ron Paul run as a Constitutionalist or some such nonsense to drain off just enough votes to offset the loss of the "border vote."

note; It should be secret not secrete, but when you think of Pelosi and Carville secrete works just as well.
