Happy St. Patrick's Day, everyone. Watch your alcoholic intake and come back safely.


Speaking of alcoholic intake...

Ted Kennedy has been on record against Cape Wind, the building of a windfarm, on Nantucket Sound because "that's where I sail". He's also called it a "national treasure". Well, a photographer caught him dumping diesel fuel into his "national treasure".

My question: this picture evidence was taken over five years ago. Why didn't it surface then? Simple - Kennedy's a Democrat. If a Republican did this, it would be in the news the next day.


Speaking of Democrats...

Michigan has decided to a do-over of the primary. Remember, Michigan was being punished for holding their primary too early. They were told that, if they did this, their delegates would not be seated. And they did it anyway.

So now Hillary is upset...because she won the early primary (granted, she was the only name on the ballot because the other candidates followed the rules and didn't campaign there). She wants those delegates. She's desperate for them. So now Michigan is going to re-do their primary. Somehow they came up with the money (I'd heard something like $54 million to re-do, but that is probably the wrong figure) and they are going to do it again.

The lesson is obvious. If you're a Democrat, rules don't matter. Taking responsibility when you are warned of the consequences doesn't matter. Just ask Ted Kennedy.

What's sad is, the great "hope for change" Obama isn't standing up and saying, "America must play by the rules. They were warned, and they did it anyway. So they should take their medicine."

Nah, he'd just look like he's protecting his lead.


Two members of Code Pink were arrested for trespassing when they entered the Marine recruitment center in Berkeley, sat down and blocked the door, and refused to leave.

There could also be arrests for vandalism - the group had put stickers and signs on the windows, and tried to stop a Marine from removing them.

Let them take responsibility for their actions.


How about this father in Australia. Evidently his twin sons flunked their final exams. So he's suing their private school for the tuition money.

Sure, it wasn't his boys' fault that they failed. Oh no.

Oh, and their dad is a partner in a law firm.



Okay, I have to get on with my day.

Again, if you drink please don't drive. Someone would miss you. I would, too.

Be seeing you.

Code Pink consistently wants the benefits and rewards of free speech without any of the consequences or the responsibilities. This gives them zero credibility -- over and over again.

Where's the outrage in the media against Charles Hagee and Rod Parsley, ministers in the McCain camp? Where? I don't see it on Faux News.

Who the fuck is Charles Hagee?
