A Trip Through The Libosphere

The full left-wing monte, in three dots or less....

***Did you know that Bill Richardson is running for the 2008 Democrat presidential nomination? Did you know that Bill Richardson is governor of New Mexico? Did you know that Bill Richardson was Bill Clinton's Secretary of Energy? Have you ever heard of Bill Richardson? Is this mic on?

Well, one of his now-former campaign staffers in Nevada has been busted for bouncing checks and was bookkeeper for a brothel.

Did I mention Richardson used to work for Bill Clinton?

***Jeb Koogler, a staunch liberal at The Moderate Voice (which seems to speak to the questionability of that label) has jumped off the Hugo Chavez bandwagon.

Somewhere in Chappaqua, New York, the name "Jeb Koogler" has been added to the "deport to Alaska gulag after we take over using Comrade Hugo's template" list.

***Oh, no, not again:

A day after the bridge collapsed in Minneapolis, Senator Patty Murray joined other Senate Democrats to accuse the Bush Administration of failing to maintain the country's bridges. And she had a dynamite anecdote:

"I have learned of a bridge where school buses have to stop and let all of the children out and pick them up on the other side because of weight restrictions."

The Hill reports that the anecdote was quickly repeated by Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid: "The children have to walk across the bridge!" he declared in outrage.

You can see the other shoe just waiting to drop, cantcha?

So where's this limited-purpose bridge? Reid's office said to ask Murray....

AFTER Dirty Harry preened self-righteously for the cameras, BTW.

....Murray said to call her office. Spokesman Mike Spahn looked into it. A couple of weeks later, where is that bridge?

Well, Spahn doesn't know. He said an unnamed member told Murray the story minutes before she addressed reporters, but she didn't hear where it was.

In other words, Reid didn't know because Peppermint Patty didn't know, and Peppermint Patty didn't know because Senator Anonymous made it all up, and none of them have the collective mental wattage to maintain their brain-mouth filters.

I understand this member also told PP that the Bush Administration determines bridges' weight capacity by driving larger and larger trucks across them until they collapse, then they weigh the last truck and re-build the bridges.

On behalf of my state, I extend my deepest and sincerest apologies for inflicting this moronic empty-skirt on the Senate. And the other one. And our illegal "governor".

Yeah, the Everblue State is overrun, alright; but not by nerds and slackers.

***Did you know Opie Edwards is to hypocrisy what Ted Kennedy is to liver necrotization? Wanna nother example?

As a presidential candidate, Democrat John Edwards has regularly attacked subprime lenders, particularly those that have filed foreclosure suits against victims of Hurricane Katrina. But as an investor, Mr. Edwards has ties to lenders foreclosing on Katrina victims.

Ah, read the rest for yourself. I lost count of Opie's phony contradictions months ago. I lost my interest in tracking them long before that.

***Another anti-war Dem - and another of the ignorant neoBolsheviks my state has inflicted on the Congress (Brian Baird, in case you were wondering which) - has had his "road to Damascus via Baghdad" moment and become a convert to the "Surge".

Interestingly, this comes as Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki has belatedly embarked on a statesmanship "surge" of his own to try and ramp up the political progress to compliment the military success General Petraeus has achieved.

When T.S. Elliot wrote about the world ending with a bang, not a whimper, I doubt he ever dreamed he might be referring to anti-war fortunes at the September Showdown.

***Did you know Bill Moyer is a bastard? You will now.

***Did you know that PETA could care less if Islamist terrorists commit wholesale genocide against human beings, but are Gaia's avenging angels if Hamas depicts somebody twirling cats around by their tails or throwing rocks at zoo lions - on a children's TV program in an ostensible attempt to teach kids not to do these things - while other Hamas programming encourages kids to grow up to be suicide bombers?

Wish I didn't.

***Why would Kos want to smear a RINO? I know Susan Collins is a Republican, at least technically, but don't majority Donks need to hold on to as many political human shields as they can?

***And yet, sometimes the truth can get through to a lib when the consequences of his fellow-travelers' traitorous folly hit close to home:

The son of Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden is preparing for deployment to Iraq next year.

Captain Beau Biden, a Judge Advocate General in the Delaware National Guard and the state's attorney general, is part of the 261st Signal Brigade that has been told to prepare for duty in Iraq in 2008. They have not been given a date of deployment yet.

"I don't want him going," Delaware Senator Joe Biden said from the campaign trail Wednesday, according to a report on Radio Iowa. "But I tell you what, I don't want my grandson or my granddaughters going back in 15 years and so how we leave makes a big difference."

Biden criticized Democratic rivals such as Senators Hillary Rodham Clinton and Barack Obama who have voted against Iraq funding bills to try to pressure President Bush to end the war.

"There's no political point worth my son's life," Biden said, according to Radio Iowa. "There's no political point worth anybody's life out there. None."

A moment of lucidity from Senator Hairplugs. That MUST be a sign of the Apocalypse.
