Weak Willed, George F. Will for man with a sharp tongue and a razor wit all too often lacks intestinal fortitude, from the Washington Post :
“Don’t you think it’s fair also to ask [Barack Obama] . . . how come we don’t have a health record, we don’t have a college record, we don’t have a birth cer – why, Mr. Obama, did you spend millions of dollars in courts all over this country to defend against having to present a birth certificate. It’s one thing to say, I’ve – you’ve seen it, goodbye. But why go to court and send lawyers to defend against having to show it? Don’t you think we deserve to know more about this man?”
Republicans should understand that when self-described conservatives such as Malzberg voice question-rants like the one above and Republicans do not recoil from them, the conservative party is indirectly injured. As it is directly when Newt Gingrich, who seems to be theatrically tiptoeing toward a presidential candidacy, speculates about Obama having a “Kenyan, anti-colonial” mentality.
Will needs to know that lack of journalist integrity and willingness to accept democrat talking points, such as Obama’s supposed biography, is what is killing the lame stream media. The media knows virtually nothing about Barack Obama, and supposed journalists like Will are contest to remain willfully ignorant.
Green is a synonym for stupid, from Michael Finnegan and Gale Holland, Los Angeles Times :
The Los Angeles Community College District would become a paragon of clean energy. By generating solar, wind and geothermal power, the district would supply all its electricity needs. Not only would the nine colleges sever ties to the grid, saving millions of dollars a year, they would make money by selling surplus power. Thanks to state and federal subsidies, construction of the green energy projects would cost nothing upfront.
As head of a $5.7-billion, taxpayer-funded program to rebuild the college campuses, Eisenberg commanded attention. But his plan for energy independence was seriously flawed.
Just as Holy Water is merely water which has been blessed by a priest, green energy is merely energy which has been blessed by an environmental wacko. If alternative energy were really better, it would be mainstream.
