Quote of the day

Today's quote comes from the brilliant Melanie Phillips:
You have to pinch yourself – a Marxisant radical who all his life has been mentored by, sat at the feet of, worshipped with, befriended, endorsed the philosophy of, funded and been in turn funded, politically promoted and supported by a nexus comprising black power anti-white racists, Jew-haters, revolutionary Marxists, unrepentant former terrorists and Chicago mobsters, is on the verge of becoming President of the United States.

And apparently it’s considered impolite to say so.

Hat tip: Gateway Pundit.

Melanie Phillips is, I say with great affection, the last real man left in Britain.

Police say tires slashed during Obama rally

The Associated Press

FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. - Authorities say someone slashed tires on at least 30 parked vehicles while their owners were attending a Barack Obama rally in a North Carolina coliseum.
The tires were cut Sunday outside Fayetteville's Crown Coliseum, The Fayetteville Observer reported Monday.

Maj. Ennis Wright said deputies are investigating the incident.

Campaign representatives for Obama and Republican opponent John McCain said they weren't aware of the incident.

Lynne Steenstra said it cost $120 to get her van towed and repaired. Steenstra said she was concerned that the slashing might be a scare tactic to harass Obama supporters.

"It hasn't deterred us one bit," Steenstra said. "It has only encouraged us more. I just hope whoever did this pays the price."

Obama's North Carolina campaign spokeswoman Susan Lagana said it was disappointing that the candidate's supporters had to experience the vandalism.

Sarah Revis lives on Wilkes Road where most of the tires were slashed and said she saw a single mother and a toddler stranded.

"This is an embarrassment to this city and to me as a citizen," Revis said.

Earlier in the day, the newspaper said, Obama visited a local restaurant where one patron shouted "Boo, socialist! Socialist! Get out of here!"

Other patrons clapped and Obama walked through the dining room shaking hands before leaving to attend the rally. Obama also spoke to the woman who shouted at him.

Colin Powell:

It is permitted to be said such things as, ‘Well, you know that Mr. Obama is a Muslim.’ Well, the correct answer is, he is not a Muslim, he's a Christian. He's always been a Christian. But the really right answer is, what if he is? Is there something wrong with being a Muslim in this country? The answer's no, that's not America. Is there something wrong with some seven-year-old Muslim-American kid believing that he or she could be president? Yet, I have heard senior members of my own party drop the suggestion, ‘He's a Muslim and he might be associated terrorists.’ This is not the way we should be doing it in America.”

I was Nine Years Old when Barack Obama's Friend Tried to Kill Me

"Early on the morning of February 21, as my family slept, three gasoline-filled firebombs exploded at our home on the northern tip of Manhattan, two at the front door and the third tucked neatly under the gas tank of the family car. (Today, of course, we’d call that a car bomb.) A neighbor heard the first two blasts and, with the remains of a snowman I had built a few days earlier, managed to douse the flames beneath the car. That was an act whose courage I fully appreciated only as an adult, an act that doubtless saved multiple lives that night.'

More from Treacher, Archives are racist

"he really is mentioned in the book. By the guy he barely knew well enough to say hi to when they worked in the same small office for three years."

More from Treacher, His story hasn't changed; we're just too dumb to get it straight where he documents Obama spinning.

Obama masterminded the whole thing! He was a 9-year-old terrorist kingpin!

From the NY Times, Sept. 11, 2001, No Regrets for a Love Of Explosives

''I don't regret setting bombs,'' Bill Ayers said. ''I feel we didn't do enough.''

"would Mr. Ayers do it all again, he is asked? ''I don't want to discount the possibility,'' he said."

"his girlfriend, Diana Oughton, and two other people were killed when bombs they were making exploded"

They killed at least four other people, including policemen.

Ayers launched Obama's political career from his own home in 1995.

"We didn't do enough" Ayers said in 2001.

WASHINGTON—At a press conference on Monday, members of the Vietnam Veterans Alliance blasted Democratic nominee Barack Obama for his failure to serve in the Southeast Asian war that ended 33 years ago, alleging that during the conflict the candidate frequently engaged in games of T-ball. "While our boys were dying in Vietnam, Barack Obama was running around a little league field, laughing and having fun without a care in the world," VVA spokesman James Lowry said. "John McCain left his wife and three children behind and fought bravely, but I guess Sen. Obama decided that practicing cursive and learning how to ride a bike was just more important than defending his country in her hour of need. I bet he wasn't even able to point out Vietnam on a map." Lowry later speculated that if Obama had been sent over to fight in the conflict, he probably would have peed his pants and cried for his mommy as soon as he touched down in Saigon.
