COLLECTIVE MADNESS


“Soft despotism is a term coined by Alexis de Tocqueville describing the state into which a country overrun by "a network of small complicated rules" might degrade. Soft despotism is different from despotism (also called 'hard despotism') in the sense that it is not obvious to the people."

Take Hugh Hewitt's Advice and Ignore the Lying Bastards


"Florida Goes To Gore"
Posted by: Hugh Hewitt at 11:43 PM

The election night decision of the networks in 2000 to call Florida for Gore --erroneous, and done even before Florida had closed its polls-- was the single worst intervention in America's elections by the MSM in history. It cost Republicans across the country an untold number of votes and many seats in the House and the Senate, and almost cost Bush the election.

The second worst intervention was the bogus exit polling in 2004, which had effects across the country too complex to chart.

In both instances the MSM's "decision desks" injured the basic functioning of our democracy, and tomorrow the trend will probably hold as MSM analysts --except the always-to-be-trusted Barone-- work overtime to find in their numbers the results their polls have been predicting for a month. This dynamic will slow down any good news for McCain and accelerate any perceived good news for Obama.

Play the part of Charlie Brown if you like tomorrow and try and kick MSM Lucy's football, but the best advice is believe nothing until all the polls have closed and the real results are tallied.



It is an extremely close race in all of the key states.

  6. For Mat. Air Car.

    An air-powered car? It may be available sooner than you think at a price tag that will hardly be a budget buster. The vehicle may not run like a speed racer on back road highways, but developer Zero Pollution Motors is betting consumers will be willing to fork over $20,000 for a vehicle that can motor around all day on nothing but air and a splash of salad oil, alcohol or possibly a pint of gasoline.

    Since it runs on air, you may want to take Ash along to extend your range.

  22. Rockford, Illinois. Last period of the day. The Jr High sat up on a hill above the tracks. We'd just stowed our shit in drafting class and were standing around the windows waiting for the bell to ring. A freight train broke a rail right behind the locomotive and tender. Cars just started to pile into each other, jack-strawing, boom...bang...crunch. Tender got derailed, and the engine tore up about 300 yards of track before stopping.

  26. Rockford "Files"...

    Came out while I was in freshman year at Rockford College, as I recall...

    Some concern at Rockford College that it was a Hollywood slam on the school...or something like that.

    RC was a pretty conservative school back then, something like Hillsdale College is now. The president had raised some hackles in the new Kennedy administration. I never could see why the "Rockford Files" would hurt a little liberal arts college, but who's to know?

    I recall delivering the college president's PhD dissertation to Northwestern University in Evanston with my girl friend. Think about that whenever I hear Ayer's dad was connected to Northwestern. Used to be a good school.

    Rockford then was reputed to be the second largest concentration of Swedes outside of Stockholm. Open the phone book, and there were tens of pages each of Larsons, Nelsons, Andersons, Bergstroms, Ahlgrens, Olsons, etc, etc.

    Local joke: Ole Olson went outside on his porch to piss one morning, and shouted "Good Morning, Ole Olson!" Came the echo, "Which one?"

  55. I can't sleep. I have a hell of a time with sleep. And I got a meeting in the morning. So I lay there and think, then got to take a piss.

    I come up with this.

    The Infant Born Alive Protection Act.

    A baby that survives an abortion is----an American citizen.

    The baby is--

    1)Alive

    2)Fully separate from the mother, a distinct being

    3)Born on American soil---

    equals--an American citizen

    So, you have the absurd situation where if the doctor doesn't do a proper job of killing the baby during the abortion, he ought to be charged with murder.

    I need some sleeping pills.

    Back to try it again.

  121. Bobal: A baby that survives an abortion is----an American citizen.

    During the Democratic Clinton administration, the abortion rate dropped to 21 abortions per 1000 women aged 15 to 45. During the present Republican administration, the abortion rate has increased.

    U.S. abortion rates declined 17.4 per cent in the 1990s to a 24-year low when Bush took office. Many expected that downward trend to continue under the conservative president, but 52,000 more abortions occurred in 2002 than would have been expected under the pre-2000 conditions.

    Conclusion: Obama may not talk the pro-life talk, but electing a Democrat will save hundreds of thousands of unborn lives.

  122. I am between stops at an airport. As I predicted Philadelphia corruption is in full gear. The black polling areas will intimidate white republican poll watchers and run them off. Black judges will not stop them.

    People in parts of the country with small black populations do not understand that this is SOP in all black areas in the large eastern cities, and please spare me the moral equivalency argument.

    If this happened in white areas against black voters, federal troops would be brought in.... this from powerline.

    "GOP Election Board members have been tossed out of polling stations in more than half a dozen polling stations in Philadelphia because of their party status.

    A liberal judge previously ruled that court-appointed Republican poll watchers could be removed from their boards by an on-site election judge, citing their "minority" status as cause.

    It is the duty of election board workers to monitor and guard the integrity of the voting process.

    Those on site as describing it as "pandemonium" and there may be video coming of the chaos.

    ...

    The City of Brotherly Love was roiled in controversy during the 2004 election because of rigged voting machines that showed nearly 2,000 votes for Democratic presidential candidate John Kerry before the polls had opened. A man also used a gun to intimidate poll workers at Ward 30, division 11 in 2004.

  134. O Ship of State

    THOU, too, sail on, O Ship of State!
    Sail on, O Union, strong and great!
    Humanity with all its fears,
    With all the hopes of future years,
    Is hanging breathless on thy fate!
    We know what Master laid thy keel,
    What Workmen wrought thy ribs of steel,
    Who made each mast, and sail, and rope,
    What anvils rang, what hammers beat,
    In what a forge and what a heat
    Were shaped the anchors of thy hope!
    Fear not each sudden sound and shock,
    'Tis of the wave and not the rock;
    'Tis but the flapping of the sail,
    And not a rent made by the gale!
    In spite of rock and tempest's roar,
    In spite of false lights on the shore,
    Sail on, nor fear to breast the sea!
    Our hearts, our hopes, are all with thee.
    Our hearts, our hopes, our prayers, our tears,
    Our faith triumphant o'er our fears,
    Are all with thee, -are all with thee!

  145. How Big Is The PUMA Factor

    We had this guy Weaver at Ruby Ridge here in Idaho that got in trouble with the Feds for various things, including offering to buy a sawed off shotgun from an undercover agent.

    I always thought it was bogus as hell, though Weaver was a little nuts, because who would buy a sawed off shotgun?

    All you need is a hack saw for god's sake, it's not like it's a rare item on the international arms market.

    So I think that charge against Weaver was probably bs, either that or the guy was dummer than I thought.

  155. I live in a liberal virginia suburb of Washington DC. Obama and McCain have been all over this area. This area is in play.

    I voted this afternoon. I didn't have to wait. There was no line. I was told the place was packed before 7 and half the roll had voted.

    I don't know. Gore and Kerry had the place full at all times of the day.

  163. No doughnut! Kinda defeats the whole purpose.


    I was going to go the Ambassador's (which my mother said sounds pretentious to other people, and I suppose it does) but with my better half gone I'm not much in the mood for it. Someone's going to try and drag me out anyway. ("C'mon! Open bar!") He's closing shop at 10 PM and I wonder if it'll be "over" by then.

  164. I want it to be over quickly. It's depressing enough. Hence the Cocksucker.

  165. Well, they apparently lost my registration. The good news is I filled out a special ballot (the look on the person's face when I responded that I was a Republican was worth it). The bad news is it required absolutely no proof that I even exist. The good/bad news is that it was D.C., so it probably doesn't matter...in D.C.

    A Brazilian news crew wanted to interview me (I was at the front of the line), but I waved them off. Didn't want to risk getting killed when I answered bluntly and honestly. Heard the person behind me, who presumably balanced out my vote (along with the other 90%), respond to the newsreporter's request, in English, with "I don't speak Brazilian."

    Dear Friend,

    I will be working with Newsmax.com on election night to assess the data as it comes in. I will do interviews and send in blogs to Newsmax.com as the evening unfolds. I believe we will be able to tell who has won and by what margin very early in the evening as we interpret, properly, the returns from the states that close their polls at 7:30 PM.

    I won't be on FoxNews election night but will be on O'Reilly on Wednesday and Hannity and Colmes on Thursday to react to the results.

    Thank you very, very much for reading my emails throughout the race and I hope that they brought you insights that you found helpful and even entertaining!

    Love,

    Dick

  173. In Indiana---Watch the Clinton stronghold of Dearborn County, where Gore got 6,000 votes in 2000 and Kerry got 6,596 votes in 2004. Obama got 1,782 votes in the 2008 primary, while Clinton received 5,270. Obama’s fate in that county is clearly in the hands of Clintonites, making it a good indicator of which direction the whole state may move. If Obama gets 7,000 or more votes, he’ll probably win the presidency. If he gets 5,000 or fewer, it won’t look good.

  174. Chavez has already extended his invitation to "the black man." Were "the black man" to go to Caracas, while having declined to come to Colombia, the political relationship with this country would not be salvageable in any way, shape, or form.

    I have my personal doubts that he will pay a visit to the nutjob next door, but you never know.

    More likely, he'll let his Special Envoy to the Americas (Bill Richardson, donuts to dollars) do his dirty work.
