Good Reading Today

First, from The Conspiracy to Keep You Poor And Stupid, we have this little snippet from Irwin Chusid (bold Emphasis mine):

Scientific opinion is irrelevant to this "crisis." Global warming is expected to subside with the inauguration of the next Democrat president. Watch the climate undergo a miraculously speedy recovery! Page one above the fold!

That goes for Iraq, New Orleans, subprime defaults, Americans without health insurance, and every other "disaster" attributable to President Chimpy W. Hitler. When a Dem moves into the White House, news headlines and network anchors are suddenly going to brim with good news on a daily basis.

Three years on, the unemployment rate might even "sink" to a "record low" 6.8%. (Nice)


Michael Ledeen has a great Q&A at National Review Online. Especially these two snippets:

Q: You’ve been criticized by bloggers for having never been to Iran. Is that a problem?

A: I have never been to fascist Italy either, but I’m considered an expert on it.

Q: How would Hillary be on Iran?

A: Who knows? We don’t even know if she’s really a Yankee fan....


Going back to Conspiracy, we learn of this message from Hillary Clinton. She needs your help.
