Maryland Democratic Senator Barbara Mikulski Needs Senate Censure and Anger Management Program

April 18, 2008

The still shots below make it clear what Senator Mikulski is doing. But the kicker is when you find out what she’s saying – what she’s accusing the VICTIM of doing. (A perfect example of “projection.”)

Earth to Mikulski: If you are farting, just do it. Please don’t do it while accusing the person you’re farting at of …. guess what? Farting, of course. Of all things, farting.

That’s no accident: THAT is diabolical, sweetie. And it’s an insult to our intelligence, so prepare to have your own (justly) insulted by me in return. I’m sure it’s the only language a dope like you understands.

To be specific, your description of your victim’s behavior was a perfect description of your own: “pugnacious, scolding, snarky, dismissive, outrageous” and blah, blah, blah — in a word, abusive.

That’s your favorite dirty trick, isn’t it? Misdirection, like a magician’s. So that nobody notices what you are busy doing on one hand, you point at the victim with the other to scream at HIM for being the one who is screaming.

Shame on me for calling you a bitchjust because you tried to intimidate a witness (the President’s Budget Director) by:

  • yelling in a flagrantly abusive tone at him
  • constantly shaking your fist (sometimes both of them) at him while you constantly kept thrusting your chest, chin, and lower lip out at him in a melodramatically pugnacious scowl
  • while angrily bouncing up and down in your seat as if you were so angry that he’d better watch out because you were so mad you might just go off and fly out of your seat, unable to contain yourself
  • furiously waving your arms everywhichway in the air in a perfect imitation of Adolph Hitler’s antics in one of his patented “Jew rants”
  • constantly rudely jabbing your pointed finger at him
  • badgering him with a question he had already answered several times
  • butting in and shouting him down to not let him speak by when he tried to give information that would prove you wrong.

And all for what? For his TONE! Yes, for – for of all things – HIS tone.

Very funny, bitch.

HIS tone was the very ANTITHESIS of yours!!! His tone was respectful, reasonable, even deferential, polite, calm, patient, and totally PROFESSIONAL. YOUR tone was that of a thug! And anyone not halucinating on LSD can see that in the video.

If your ugly misbehavior doesn’t make you the very pinnacle of perfection of bitch-hood, nothing could.

And, speaking of “smoke,” your “smokestacks” was “stove pipes,” you moron. He was talking about the stove-piping of funds (earmarking) instead of letting law enforcement use the grant money as they think best.

So, “stove pipe” / “smoke stack” — it’s all the same to muddle-headed you, isn’t it? Is that what happens to everything someone tries to get through your head? It all just gets mushed like that?

Where is the Ethics Committee? Since when is such thuggish, emotionally unbalanced conduct becoming a United States senator? Who votes for this surly nut? The State of Maryland, that’s who. Congratulations, people of Maryland: you’ve done yourselves proud.


Maxine Waters Character Assassin

April 16, 2008

Two questions.

1. Since when is it legitimate to accuse someone OF PLANNING TO do something wrong? That is accusing someone of something you know they haven’t done. It’s a con job, a dirty, fast-talking trick. You just pull this stunt by saying they haven’t done it … “yet,” duh.

2. How can anyone not brain-dead fall for such crap?

Democratic Representative Maxine Waters is at it again. Presumably because the people of Los Angeles who elect her are brain dead.

Guess when the last time we saw that denunciatory stunt was? During the Spanish Inquisition, that’s when. The crime was “suspicion of heresy.” A joke. A fucking joke. People were condemned on suspicion that they MIGHT do something wrong in the future.

That’s the Democratic Party – resorting to the odious tactics of the Inquisition.

OK, Maxine. You accuse President Bush of planning to mislead us into war with Iran. You admit that you can’t prove it. But, you say, “some people” suspect it.

Who? Your aunt Nellie? And your Uncle Bob? Who? Don’t give us that “some people” crap. Name them or shut up.

Then you launch into your indictment, never again for the rest of your hour-long rant allowing that this is mere “suspicion” on your part. The rest of your speech ignores your original disclaimer and carries on as a formal indictment.

Your shitmouth CONJECTURE of what someone MAY do wrong TOMMORROW is a legitimate accusation?

No, it’s illegitimate. It’s deceitful, irresponsible rhetoric, which is probably why you had to project the sin of using “irresponisible deceitful rhetoric” off onto the victim of your irresponsible, deceitful rhetoric.

Yes, folks, whatever the Democrats are accusing someone else of doing, they are invariably in the very act of doing themselves. Check it out. It’s the Oldest Trick in the Book: the serpent pulled it on Eve.

And what is Waters’ sole “reason” for saying so? The statements of the President, his administrators, and the military about what Iran is doing. Yes, she has no criticism of Iran for what it says and does. But she condemns “this administration” for saying anything about it! For not ignoring it all!

Iran officially holds mass prayer service rallies for a “a world without America.” The Iranian President keeps calling for the annihilation of Israel. For decades, Iran’s leaders have insulted and demonized us by calling America “the Great Satan.” They did something no other country in the world has ever been sleazy enough to do: they attacked our embassy and held our diplomats hostage. Iran boasts about training terrorists for export. For example, Iran trained, armed, and used Hesbollah (commanded by Iranian military) as their proxy army in Lebanon to attack Israel. They routinely threaten to send some of these terrorist units to attack us here in our homeland. They arm and train terrorists and militias (of both Sunni and Shia) to blow up civilians and kill Americans in Iraq. They instigate sectarian conflict by blowing up mosques, and they ship weapons into Iraq to kill Americans with. Iran even sends its own military into Iraq to lead forces against us. Iran is developing ballistic missiles and the capability to make nuclear weapons.

And what has See-No-Evil Hear-No-Evil Speak-No-Evil Waters got to say about all that Iranian war-mongering? Nothing. Not one peep.

No, according Fruitcake Waters, Iran can do all that, and because our president and his administration warn them to stop it, OUR side is one in the wrong.

ARE YOU STARK, RAVING MAD, LADY? Is your brain crammed into your skull upside-down and backwards? You are like someone who silently watches a rape as if nothing is happening and then screams bloody muder while pointing the accusing finger at the victim because she she yelled at the rapist to stop it.

And here’s the kicker: Nutcase Waters accuses US of DEMONIZING THEM. Yes, the Iranians call us “the Great Satan” 20 times a day for 30 years, and Waters accuses US of demonizing THEM.

Very funny.

What would our government have to do to please you perverts? Act like it wasn’t happening? Indeed, that is the only thing your censure would allow this president to do = ACT LIKE IT AIN’T HAPPENING! Because, if he says anything about it, you accuse him of war-mongering!

HIM!!! Not THEM!!!

Are you cracked, lady? Or just, plain wicked?

In either case, we know whose side you’re on, don’t we? Fair’s fair. Here’s a dose of your own medicine. I accuse you of being a propagandist for Iranian government. That’s treason. “Some people” suspect that, you know.

While you’re at it, why not accuse Mr. Bush of planning to beat his wife on Saturday? You have just as much grounds to. That would be just as legitimate. Why not accuse him of planning to nuke to France? You have just as much grounds to. It would be just as legitimate.

You can accuse him of anything in the world that way, can’t you? Anything.

That’s moral mayhem, because there is no defense at such lowdown and unfair tactics of character assassination. How can the accused prove a negative? How can he prove that he will NOT do something in the future? You are disgusting. You do this all the time, every time you open your vicious, assault-weapon mouth. You are a litmus test for decency. Where is the Ethics Committee?

Obama Rama

April 15, 2008

I love Barack Obama’s message. It is exactly what I had longed to hear.

He calls for an end to the politics of character assassination and game-playing and gridlock. He calls for Democrats and Republicans to LISTEN to each other, to agree when they can, to find common ground, and to SERVE THIS COUNTRY instead of their power-hungry political parties.

Hooray for Obama’s message! It’s THE winner!

As for his color, I couldn’t care less…except that I am so sick of the European myth that there is a racist under every bush here that I would really like to see a black president. Maybe that would make the Euro harpies finally shut up – do you think?

Though I like Mr. Bush, I would love a president as articulate as Obama. That’s always a plus.

So, what’s my problem with Obama? I don’t trust him. At all. He sets off my Con-Artist red alert.

A man who loves this country doesn’t sit in the pew of a pastor who cries “God damn America!” from the pulpet for 20 years. A pastor who tells the most vicious lies about America. A racist pastor who foments hatred of whites.

And then Obama donates tens of thousands of dollars to this organization to boot? He won’t even apologize and disavow it? Not a sign of good faith.

Give me a break. Actions speak louder than words: Obama has no love for this country and is sympathetic to black racism if he belongs to an institution like that. All his talky-talk to the contrary is therefore a lie.

And, call me “picky,” I don’t want a president who associates with those who hate America and promote black racism.

And I just don’t understand the people blowing off these glaringly serious warning signs about the man. Come out of Ga-Ga Land, please!

That’s the main reason I fear Obama, and all his slick, sidewinding doublespeak just nails the case against him down tight. That Wright speech, with its sidewinding and false moral equivalence should have been a warning to all. Condemning free trade while telling the Canadian government not to worry that he meant it is not something that voters should blow off. His liberal elitist pandering by looking down his nose at Middle Americans is another thing that should set off the red alerts. What does he have to do to before the Kool-Aid Kids on his bandwagon wake up?

I would prefer a purely narcissistic president like Hillary to one whose motives truly seem as nefarious as a street con artist’s.

The Liberal Elitists

April 14, 2008

Yes, my fellow Americans, people on the East Coast and on the West Coast, especially in California and New England – who pride themselves in being so intelligent and unprejudiced – are actually ridiculously prejudiced and bigoted AND too stupid to even know bigotry when they are spouting it.

I ran into this truth in the 1980s on my first trip to California. When people I met asked me where I was from and I said, “Wisconsin,” it was like I’d laid egg or something. I couldn’t believe it. It took two full weeks and 30 or 40 instances for me to believe my eyes and ears. Yes, I finally had to admit: these Californians were really THAT stupid!

Yes, these “sophisticated” Californians think predjudice = racism. Because their thinking cannot penetrate buzzwords and empty slogans, so they don’t know that geographical predjudice is just as wrong and stupid and narcissistic as any other kind.

How “intellectual,” how “sophisticated.” Are they then not as “provincial” as can be?

The whole lot of them!

Since then I’ve come to see why.

Notice that if anything unusual happens on the street in San Francisco or New York City, the first thing the bystanders do is take a quick look around to see how others are reacting. Then they follow suit. And the whole lot of them gang-up on and insult anyone who doesn’t conform by reacting the same way they all do.

Ah, “tolerance.”

That’s what middle-school-age kids do = immature people ruled by peer pressure and a compelling need to “fit in.” In other words, they are cattle. They have no mind of their own = have no mind.

Which is why when you pass a herd of cattle, you find more than 90% facing the same direction. Always. It’s just mindless. That’s what mindless cattle do.

Which is why the mob on either coast is so childish and so prone to magical thinking. Whatever it takes to conform. It’s also why a poll of them on any hot-button issue comes out lopsided, with over 90% agreeing. Just like those cattle.

Obama was just flattering them by playing to the bigotry that props up their self-flattering egos. Which is why they think the whole, vast middle of this country is just some wasteland for their egos to “flyover.”

How pathetic.

The poor saps are not “elite.” They are elitist. They are not “intellectual.” They are “intellectualistic.” Thank God for the Electoral College, or these densely packed herds of cattle would be numerous enough to run the country…

right off that cliff ahead of their stampede.

Impeach Pelosi

April 11, 2008

The screwball is all mouth and no brain. Today she tipped her head back, looking down her nose at the press, and declared that the obstacle to peace in Iraq is not al-Qaeda, not the sectarian militias, not Iran, not any insurgeants, but rather the Iraqi government.

That makes it pretty clear whose side she’s on.

She is therefore the enemy of the Iraqi government, our ally. She is trying to bring down what America is trying to support.

Impeach obnoxious Nancy Pelosi, the Mouth of the House.

The Democratic Party: The Enemy Within

April 11, 2008

Senator Joe Lieberman put it best yesterday when he said the Democrats were playing “See-No-Progress-in-Iraq, Hear-No-Progress-in-Iraq, and above all, Speak-No-Progress-in-Iraq.”

The Democrat doublespeak and confused gobbledygook to give a false impression are intolerable. It’s time they got a little of what they dish out.

They will not allow the President or the Republicans to do one good thing for this country. They will NOT allow it. For fear that if the President or the Republicans succeeded in doing anything good, people might vote for them.

So, the goddam, traitorous Democrats act AGAINST this country at every turn, just to win the next election.

This former Democrat is so furious with them that I vow never to vote for another Democrat again – not unless he or she vows to have a backbone and stand up to the corrupt party bosses.

The Democratic boss of the House of Representatives is so far gone on her heady power trip that she doesn’t even know enough not to brag about holding the Columbia Trade Agreement hostage in an effort at political blackmail to bully the President and Republicans into letting her ram completely unrelated legislation down their throats. Yes, she doesn’t even know right from wrong anymore: she says, “If you want me to let the House vote on this agreement, you must bribe me by promising to accept my legislation on other matters.

She and Ted Kennedy’s Puppet Boss in the Senate (Senator Harry Reid) do the same thing with the funding of our troops in Iraq. They are holding this legislation hostage too, demanding that they be allowed to corrupt it with all sorts of their their little vote-bribing additions to pay off their special interests on totally unrelated legislation.

Otherwise, the tempestuous Democratic brats stubbornly refuse to even let the matter come up for a vote.

It is the Congress that is trashing the Constitution, not the Executive Branch. The Congressional Democrats deny the separation of powers and demand the right to oversee the President. Duh, did you morons ever hear of the concept of “coequal powers”? Are you so addle-headed that you think a “coequal power is one you oversee? What a bunch of idiots.

They now want to legislate troop rotations even! Right.

First they lie by making it seem as though troop rotations have always been 15 months on /12months off, when they have been that way only temporarily during the surge. Then they claim the authority to legislate troop rotations, admitting that they will start at 12 months on/12 months off. But, they say they want to go to 12 months on/24 months off. That would in effect cut the size of the deployable force in half!

Power grabbing, power grabbing, power grabbing. They are thoroughly corrupt and drunk on power. Every single thing they say and do is all about getting more power, not about what’s good for this country.

Congress has no right to dictate troop rotations. Hey, you power-hungry Constitution trashers. Show some respect for our form of government. You are not the Commander in Chief.

This former Democrat is sick of us having to fight the enemy within – you Democrats – as well as our enemies abroad over everything. You block all efforts to control our borders. You block all efforts to eavesdrop on terrorist communications. You block all efforts to increase our energy supplies and decrease the cost. You block all foreign policy efforts. You block foreign trade agreements that will get rid of tariffs on American exports. You block all efforts to win the war. You ARE the enemy.

You childish brats don’t take anything seriously but yourselves.

More than 60 days ago you said need 30 days to consider the FISA law. Why have you still not gotten around to allowing us to tap the communications of foreign terrorists to other foreign terrorists without a probably cause warrant? Why won’t you bullies even allow a vote? Because you know you’ll lose, that’s why.

That’s “democracy”? My ass. That’s dictatorship, Comrade Pelosi.

Whose side are you on? You are reckless of the safety of the American people.

Not one word you say is anything but campaigning. You serve the Democratic Party, not the American people. Let San Francisco break off and float out to sea. I am sick of those Left Wing Magical Thinking Machines. They will never grow up.

The Perversity of Reuters

April 8, 2008

Trade Representative Susan Schwab on the Columbian Trade Agreement at the White House Press Briefing:

Virtually everything that Colombia exports to the United States currently comes in duty-free through preference programs that have been around — temporary preference programs, but they’ve been around since 1991. …In terms of the process, this is …authority that every President since 1974 has had available to move trade agreements. It provides for an up or down vote, no amendments, within a specified period of time. The 90 days is the period of time within which full congressional action would take place. The way it works is, there’s 60 days in the House — up to 60 days in the House — 45 days for the House Ways and Means Committee, 15 days for the House floor. And then 30 days in the Senate — it’s 15 in Senate Finance, 15 on the Senate floor. …We have, as a Cabinet, had more than 400 individual consultations with members of Congress just since September alone. …No Congress has ever defeated a trade agreement — a free trade agreement — in the history of writing or negotiating these free trade agreements. …There have been a lot of meetings with her [Nancy Pelosi], and others in the Democratic leadership, over the last year and a half. This is an agreement that was closed over two years ago; signed 16 months ago.

And now, what does Tabassum Zakaria of Reuters ask?

I mean, why send it up until, you know, you sort of had them onboard, the ones who are going to be the ones shepherding it through their chambers?

In case it’s not yet clear how this perverse reporter is trying to twist the course of logic a full 180 degrees…

AMBASSADOR SCHWAB: Well, if you — the way Trade Promotion Authority works, as I said, you’ve got this 90-day maximum. And it was very clear that unless the legislation started moving, it would never have been acted on. …And so we looked at the calendar and looked at the estimated date of adjournment for the Congress. And if you work backwards 90 days, you get to tomorrow.

TABASSUM ZAKARIA OF REUTERS: But how are you going to change something like Senator Reid’s mind about it within 90 days? I mean, he has put out a statement saying it is probably going to fail.

Right, the failure won’t be Senator Reid’s fault or Nancy Pelosi’s fault: their act will be President Bush’s fault. As always. Everything in the world that anybody does is President Bush’s fault. As when terrorists blow up people – President Bush is always the guilty party. As when France is being a prick and won’t cooperate, President Bush gets the bad mark on his name for it. Et ad infintum.

A pervert is as a pervert does.

Is it asking too much for the damned MSM not to be so goddam irrational?

Ah, the intelligentsia. Tabassum Zakaria (and Reuters) has her brains crammed into her skull upside-down and backwards.


Iraq War

April 7, 2008

The surge has changed some things in Iraq, so that something the Democrats were falsely claiming before, from now on will be true. Namely, that Iraq isn’t the central front in the greater war against Radical Islam.

It still is, but only for a short time – until the battle in Mosul kicks al-Qaeda out of that area.

Afterwards, I think we really can say that we have done the job against al-Qaeda in Iraq and that we can count on the Iraqis themselves to mop up the remnants. The Iraqi people hate al-Qaeda. They will search out and kill the remnants.

The great danger in Iraq now is that the sectarian factions will fight each other for power in a hurly-burly of multi-factional civil war. If they are bent on destroying themselves in this mass act of national suicide, there is only so much we can do to dissuade them.

It should be obvious that we want nothing more than we want out of Iraq and that we ARE going to leave Iraq. But never underestimate the power of anti-Americanism to delude the world. It AIN’T obvious to the Iraqis or the rest of the world that we aren’t planning to setup and run a puppet government in Iraq for control of their oil. WE MUST PROVE THAT BEYOND ALL DOUBT. IN FACT, WE MUST SHOCK THEM INTO THEIR SENSES SO THAT THEY OPEN THEIR EYES AND SEE THIS TRUTH.

We have already withdrawn the Marine Expeditionary Force, and by July we should have drawn down from 20 to 15 Combat Brigades. (Yes, Democrats, why do you keep forgetting that?)

But you can’t expect a general to recommend going lower than that, simply because a general is a general. His goal is the fulfillment of his military mission. That is not exactly the same goal as our nation has, however.

I would like to see a little cunning politics/diplomacy. I would like to see us suddenly (with minimal warning) remove another Combat Brigade before the elections in October. Just the personell, so that the redeployment can be very rapid (leaving the equipment with other Combat Brigades.)

Yes, I mean surprise the Iraqi government with this move, giving them no more notice than necessary to give them time to move their army into the area we hand over to them.

Why do I suggest this? Because this would be an object lesson: WE ARE LEAVING, so they had better FACE THAT FACT and get serious about settling their issues.

I think this is something President Bush can do to insure that those elections do take place on time = to cross any plan to come up with excuses for delaying those elections.

I also think that doing this would help our next president, giving him or her more leverage.

This move would also be psychological warfare = a show of confidence – much better than the constant hand-wringing that the bad guys will come back without us there to stave them off, which does nothing but encourage the terrorists and insurgeants by making them think they can win. It’s just common sense to ACT as though you expect success, not failure.

Then after the October elections, I’d do the same thing again in November or December – remove another Combat Brigade or two.

I can think of no better kick in the butt to make the Iraqi factions stop fighting and wake up to see that WE REALLY ARE LEAVING, that they can’t keep us there by simply refusing to own their repsonsibility for their own country…so that they stop playing games by which they try to maneuver us into backing one faction against another.

This move would also bring us down to 12 or 13 Combat Brigades deployed – a managable number that won’t break the force. We simply MUST get down to at least 15, and lower if at all possible.

Yes, there is some risk in this. But is it any greater than the risk in staying? I don’t think so.

At that point, the Iraqis either do it or they don’t.

This move would also stop Iran from causing trouble. They are childish and just do it to cause US trouble, period. They don’t really want Iraq to descend into civil war. That would be a disaster for them. So they would immediately have to stop the game-playing FOR THEIR OWN SAKE. The same with all the other useless Arab nations. The irresponsible brats would have to stop playing games and do something to quell trouble rather than keep on acting like piss-ants by causing trouble. The same with the so-called “international community” (an oxymoron). They too would have to stop the annoy-America game-playing and switch from causing trouble to remedying it.

In short, I think that doing this is the next smart step to take. We must face the fact that even the world’s only superpower can’t defeat the whole world when it decides to cross us at every turn out of sheer nationalistic anti-American envy. We need to make the neighboring nations and the UN grow up and cut it out – to become part of the solution instead of the problem.

This move would press the Iraqis to do their part. It would force the neighboring countries to do their part. It would force the international gang to do their part. Then we can continue to do our part with reasonable chance of success over the next 2 or 3 years – with steadily falling troop numbers and causualties as Iraq finally stabilizes.

Ted Kennedy’s casual lies

April 7, 2008

While stumping for Barack Obama, Ted Kennedy told one of his many casual lies. To exaggerate the Iraq War out of all proportion, he characterized it as very long, longer than WWI and WWII.

He dumped that shit on you Democrats to dupe you for your ignorance of the fact that the World Wars were short (because of their horrendous intensity) and that the real “war” of Iraq was very short, over in a matter of weeks. The counterinsurgency following is not long at all, since counterinsurgencies almost always last for at least 10 years.

To show his utter contempt for the truth, Kennedy said that the Iraq War is no “almost as long as the Vietnam War.” In this he is again insulting you for your “intellectual” ignorance. The Iraq War is nowhere near as long as the Vietnam War was. Not even close.

Vietnam War: 1959 – April 30 1975. American involvement 1960-1975 (15 years).

And guess who got us into that war? Ted Kennedy’s exalted brother, President John Kennedy.

Yes, Ted Kennedy is a joker, and the joke’s on YOU.

When shall we ever be done with hearing Ted Kennedy invoke his brother John as a god? Ted does this too to insult your intelleigeance, for neither John Kennedy nor Robert Kennedy were socialists like Ted Kennedy is. They were ANTI-socialists, fierce anti-socialists who would be center-right on most issues today and center-left on a few issues today.

Another Ted Kennedy insult is his glorification of the race for the moon initiated by John Kennedy, which he implies that Barack Obama would emulate. Think, pee-brains: wouldn’t Ted Kennedy scream bloody murder over such an effort today? He would be screaming that the money for the space program was evil and should be taken from taxpayers by the Democrats to bribe the votes of people who want handouts.

Ted Kennedy tried to ride his brothers’ coattails into the Oval office in 1980. When CBS asked him the simple question why he thought he should be president, he sat there mouth-breathing as if incredulous at the question. He had no answer. (See the recent C-SPAN Q and A program for the film clip.)

It was evident to the whole nation that he thought he should be the Leader of the Free World just because he is a Kennedy and it was now his turn. He was rejected. And ever since, he has made himself the Party Boss, the man running the show from behind the scenes, the man who wants his puppet in the White House.

The one really good thing the Clintons did for this country was to create another pole of power in the Democratic Party, limiting the power of Kennedy’s thuggish tactics to bully elected Democrats into doing whatever he commands.

So, all you naive Kool-Aide drinkers, having Ted Kennedy back you is not a plus in the eyes of most Americans. Maybe it’s time you edjicated yourselves by Googling to find out about his past.


Aussies are off their nuts!

April 5, 2008

In the mixing crowd of leaders at the NATO summit, Australian Prime Minister Kevin Rudd (who had just been to Washington to visit with President Bush the day before) was momentarilly alone and met eyes with President Bush.

Well? What usually happens when two people not busy talking to anyone in a mixing crowd make eye contact like that? They make some sign of acknowledgement and come together for a chat.

No big deal, right? But all Australia goes crazy, because Rudd waved by raising his hand to his forehead in a kind of  salute.

OH!!! HOW HORRIBLE!!!! He might as well have cried “Achtung! and snapped to attention with his arm thrust up in a Nazi salute and cry of “Heil Hitler!”

Listen to the what these Australian lunatics are making of it:

Opposition Leader Brendan Nelson said the salute was inappropiate and Greens leader Bob Brown said it belittled Australia.

“I think it’s conduct unbecoming of an Australian prime minister,” Dr Nelson said.

“Mr Rudd appears to conduct himself in one manner when he thinks the television is on him and in another when it is not.

“Australia is a confident, outward-looking country after more than 10 years of strong foreign policy development and we need a strong prime minister to represent our very best interests throughout the world.”


“There is a streak of John Howard’s deputy sheriff in Kevin Rudd’s slip-up,” he said.

“It takes seasoned maturity to ensure Australia is never second-rated in the international arena and Mr Rudd is not there yet.

“We are not the 51st state of the USA and Mr Rudd’s salute carried a subservient connotation many Australians won’t like.”

These clowns don’t know a joke when they tell it. Someone warn them that the sense of humor is the first thing to go with their sanity.

I have a great idea (Are you listening, George?). Don’t fight it: anti-Americanism is too self-aggrandizing for the narcissistic Left to live without. Instead, let’s make it America’s secret weapon.

Pimp these clowns throughout the world. Get them to really go for that bait. Drive that stampede the rest of the way off that cliff.

We Americans could use a good laugh like this periodically.
