This Never Gets Old

The usual suspects release a heavily edited video, the MSM rolls with it, a good person gets fired, and the administration and the left are silent. Yeehaw!

ACORN! NAACP ARE THE REAL RACISTS! What do you think, Dancin’ David Gregory? Would you like a martini with your filet, Mr. Broder?

*** Update ***

Here’s the farmer’s wife saying that the smears are bullshit, and that she helped them.

The NAACP is shrill

And for the record, the NAACP has been shrill for over a century and the Confederate nostalgics have hated every minute of it. Since they began in 1909 the NAACP has always been attacked by the Confederate Party regardless of the alias they use. Today’s iteration of the Confederate Party uses Republican, GOP, conservative and Tea Party as their cover names, but the NAACP can still send these folks into fits of rage just by tugging at their sheets from time to time.

As they done countless times before, the NAACP called on a political movement in America to condemn the racist statements and actions by folks in their ranks. Nothing really new here, as the NAACP has been doing this kind of thing for 101 years. But because the movement they call out this time is the Tea Party TeaBagger movement it has caused an outrage from all the usual suspects making up the various strains of the modern Confederate Party.

It took almost no time at all for TeaBagger leaders to respond with claims of victimhood and, of course, fresh examples of the racism the NAACP call on the movement to refute.

The Latest Poutrage

I can’t believe Sarah Palin hasn’t tweeted about this yet:

The backstory is that the NASA administrator was interviewed on Al Jazeera and said this:

When I became the NASA Administrator – before I became the NASA Administrator – he charged me with three things: One was that he wanted me to re-inspire children to want to get into science and math, that he wanted me to expand our international relationships, and third, and perhaps foremost, he wanted me to find a way to reach out to the Muslim world and engage much more with predominantly Muslim nations to help them feel good about their historic contribution to science, math, and engineering.”

Question: Are you in some sort of diplomatic role .. to win hearts and minds?

Bolden: NO NO, not at all. Its not a diplomatic anything. What it is – is that it is trying to expand our outreach so that we get more people who can contribute to the things that we do – the international Space Station is as great as it is because we have a conglomerate of about 15 plus nations who have contributed something to that partnership that has made it what it is today …”

If the International Space Station is good for anything, it’s outreach and other associated “feel good” bullshit, but FSM help us if Muslims take part in that.

Stay Out of My State

This is just what West Virginia needs:

Top GOP strategists are plotting ways to force WV to hold a special election this year, in hopes of giving the party a better chance to pick off the seat of the late Sen. Robert Byrd (D-WV), according to several party sources.

The RNC and the WV GOP are exploring ways to bring a lawsuit that would force the Mountaineer State to hold an election earlier than planned, the sources said. That could be the best option for the GOP, which believes it can win Byrd’s seat in this favorable political climate.

But it will involve compelling the state to actually hold the contest. WV Sec/State Natalie Tennant (D) said last week that Gov. Joe Manchin’s (D) eventual appointee would be able to serve until the ’12 elections. And election law precedent appears to be on Tennant’s side, given a WV Supreme Court decision from ’94.

The RNC has already transfered money to the state GOP, according to a committee source.

I hope Natalie Tennant and Jake Glance understand the flash mob of hate that is about to descend on them, eager to inspect their countertops. Tennant is pretty much a straight shooter and is just following established law, but that won’t matter a bit.

Now There is a Hot Scoop

The Politico:

Still, Republicans have settled on a strategy of painting Kagan, who has never been a judge, as a politically driven ideologue. They insist they haven’t ruled out a filibuster, though that seems highly unlikely.

I’m sure you are shocked by this.
