Utter Chutzpah From Dick Lugar

Senator Dick Lugar (R-McLean, VA) is behind in the polls in the INDIANA U.S. Senate Republican primary. His campaign has the gall to make this statement (emphasis mine):

"All along, the Mourdock campaign has been fueled by special interests from outside the State of Indiana — and this poll is just another example. Our internal polling shows Dick Lugar is, was and will remain in the lead. Our polling also shows Richard Mourdock’s unfavorable ratings growing rapidly. The more Hoosiers learn about Mourdock, the less they trust him. At the end of the day, this race will be decided by Hoosiers and not by D.C.-based special interest polls."

Another special interest from outside the state of Indiana: Dick Lugar. At least Richard Mourdock lives in the damn state!

Maybe I'm too upset about this, but it just makes my blood boil when you have a Senator who's been in office for 36 years and is indignant that some people think maybe he's been there long enough. Then, he has the audacity to not even live in his home state and act like it's no big deal. Lugar's voting record the past decade has been lousy but it's his attitude that really make me angry.

UPDATE 4/30/12: A good friend of mine lives in Indiana and has lived at his current address for six years. Just a few days ago he got a mailing from the "Friends of Dick Lugar," however it was addressed to the previous resident of that address. Thus, Dick Lugar's database is woefully out of date. Any why? Probably because he never saw a need to update it as campaigning is pretty much an afterthought, that is until now.

I know they all do it, but one of the most cowardly acts in politics are these "friends of" letters and ads. It's a way for a candidate to make statements that he can claim he never actually made. However, this one has backfired on Lugar as my friend is going to do something he hasn't done in a while: vote in the state primary...and not for Lugar.

The One World Government Museum

You ever read a story that makes you laugh out loud and then when your laughter subsides you realize there's nothing funny whatsoever about the situation? That's what this story did to me. From the Daily Mail, news that the EU is going to open a European history museum, but they apparently have Winston Smith hard at work on rewrites: (Hat tip: NRO)

The European Union (our real ruler) is opening a £44m museum that will be a House of European History. This vanity project in and of itself is an offensive waste of money as governments and peoples tighten belts across Europe.

But what I found most offensive of all is that World War II is to be described as “the European Civil War”.

That’s right: a European Civil War that saws millions fight and die in theatres around the world in places as diverse as Tobruk, Pearl Harbour and the Burma Railway.

This is really a case of the EU showing us its cards. It's about creating a one-world government, a goal shared by Hitler. Now that comparison is a bit over the top but can anyone still make an intellectual argument that the mission of the EU isn't to end the sovereignty of the European states?

Many on the loony left took George Bush 41's statement about a "New World Order" and saw a conspiracy of the Masons, Bilderbergs, et al to create a one-world government which in that particular case they saw as bad, yet a few years later you had the Clinton Administration with foreign policy wonks such a Strobe Talbott who said "All countries are basically social arrangements, accommodations to changing circumstances . . . they are all artificial and temporary."

So how can the most powerful nation on earth get in on this one-world creamy goodness? Why we have to be brought down to the rest of the world's level. Anyone see that happening lately?


The GSA Takes The Fifth

All the criminal activity in the Obama Administration with Fast and Furious scandal and other corruption within the DOJ, they've got officials with the GSA pleading the Fifth? This "scandal" is tiny. I thought it was just about lavish spending but I guess it goes beyond that.


What The Augusta Golf Club Should Do

Here's my solution to the controversy over Augusta National Golf Club's male-only membership policy:

The club should announce that they will now allow women to be members. Soon afterward, the club makes an announcement that all locker rooms, bath and shower facilities are unisex.

Female club member: "Uh, the bathrooms are unisex. What the hell?"

Male club member: "What? What's the problem?"

Female club member: "Didn't you hear me? The bathrooms, showers and all that are unisex! We can't be naked around the men!"

Male club member: "Why not?"

Female club member: "It just isn't done!"

Male club member: "Are you saying there should be some separation among the sexes? Are you saying there should be a place only for men and a place only for women?"

Female club member: "Look..."

Male club member: "Madam, you're exclusionary behavior sickens me. Good day to you."

Female club member: "But..."

Male club member: "I SAID GOOD DAY!"


Another Day, Another Obama Interjection

The cops in Cambridge acted stupidly.

If I had a son, he'd look like Trayvon.

Augusta should allow women in their private club.


Paul Ryan: The Smartest Man In Washington

When the country collapses thanks to Geithner and Obama, at least he'll be able to say "I told you so."
