- Bibi's visit to the White House. Despite this administration being openly anti-semitic, and clearly anti-Israel, Obama today attempted to shore up the traditionally Democrat Jewish vote by cozying up to Israel and Netanyahu. I can't wait until Bibi's out of power and writes a book about his impressions of American leader, since his career has spanned several. Let's find out just how stupid American Jews are (or, how it's just the right-wing nuts who care about Israel) and whether they return to the fold and vote Dem in November, stay away, or turn to Republicans, who are actually concerned with the future of Israel and the sole functioning (functioning!) democracy in the Middle East.
- The attack on Arizona and filing suit against SB1070. The administration and Obama himself have done nothing but attack this bill on civil rights grounds for weeks. Today, they issued a schizophrenic lawsuit that simultaneously claims the bill makes it both more difficult and easier for the Feds to enforce immigration laws, therefore, it's unconstitutional. Prognosis of victory for Feds: Poor. Interestingly, no civil rights arguments being made. Theory there is the Feds are waiting for some dumb Arizona cop to actually violate someone's civil rights so they can have a plaintiff. Of course, this is all about Hispanic votes. Pure and simple.
- NASA outreach to Muslims. For every thinking American male of my age, NASA and space exploration had a special place in our hearts. With the end of manned space flight nearing, NASA is now reduced to hopping rides with the Russians and making Muslims feel good about themselves. Look, this agency ceased being well managed in December 1972. Maybe we should just close the whole damn thing down, with our NASA Administrator forced to kiss a bunch of asses to get anything done. Or, perhaps this is a massive, well-coordinated PR effort to distract attention from the 1000's of lay-offs announced today due to Bam admin space policy.
As Charles Krauthammer said about this today, "You can't make this up."
