Short Takes

Lynn Forester de Rothschild, a top fundraiser for Hillary Clinton has gone over to the McCain campaign, saying "he'll lead the country in a centrist fashion" and accused Democrats of "becoming too extreme". "I believe that Barack Obama, with MoveOn.org and Nancy Pelosi and Howard Dean, has taken the Democratic Party - and they will continue to- too far to the left." She'll not switch political parties but will step down from her membership on the DNC's Platform Committee.

Michelle Obama, speaking before a forum's audience recently, said decisions on voting for candidates should "be based on our self-interests" not "because she's cute." After the audience laughed she quickly said she was referring to herself. Vote for your own self interests not the best you think to lead the country and a veiled slur to Sarah Palin. Nice.

Well, at least Charlie Rangel was more honest in his attack of Palin. According to an account online, Rangel referred to Palin as "disabled". The question posed to Rangel: "Why are the Democrats so afraid of Palin and her popularity?" Answer: "You got to be kind to the disabled."

He said he was referring to her lack of foreign policy experience.

You'd think a politician in charge of the country's tax code on Capitol Hill who has been found guilty of not reporting his own income tax liability on rental property and his island villa would not only have his chairmanship taken away but be out of office all together. Except he's a Democrat. And, Nancy Pelosi is in charge. Not only does she not reform the ethics of the House as she said she would, she has managed to drag Congress into previously unknown low polling numbers.

And, a 20 year old young man, the son of a Democrat state representative in Tennessee, is being questioned as the person who stole Sarah Palin's identity to hack into her personal e-mail account. According to this article, Mike Kernell has been in the legislature for 32 years and "has never had any job other than professional politician." He is described as "extremely left-wing." So, will Kernell be described as a failure as a parent as Palin was when her daughter's pregnancy was reported?

The attacks of the digital brown shirts continue. You'll remember when Lt. Gov. Michael Steele from Maryland ran for the open Senate seat in 2006, his personal information was stolen and published all over rabid "progressive" web sites. The information stolen were his social security number and his credit report. That person charged with the crime was working for Chuck Schumer as he was the Senator leading the election efforts for the Democrats. She served jail time over it. Michael Steele had the nerve to run as a black Republican and also was pelted with oreo cookies at rallys. Sarah Palin has the nerve to be a strong up and coming Republican woman leader who manages a family and regular life besides her political career. The horror.

Bristol Palin's cell phone number was published. Todd Palin's e-mail address was published, as was Track Palin's who is now deployed to Iraq.

Bush Derangement Syndrome is rapidly being replaced by Palin Derangement Syndrome. Remember the old days when successful women were celebrated? Unfortunately Sarah Palin is in the wrong party today.

Remember what happened to Nixon's 'plumbers'?

Mrs. Obama thinks we should vote our selfinterest. I think we should vote America's best interest.

Rangel is a disgrace to the nation.

I am so sick of self-righteous liberals; they must never be allowed to have power.

Rangel is an ass. No two ways about it. And that's the nicest thing I can say about him in this forum. Pelosi's not much better.

Privacy has been violated, and the 'choice' of a young girl to exercise her reproductive rights is front page news, but suddenly it's ok.

Where's the ACLU?

Hi Karen! Thanks for your kind comment today- I like people who like good zoos. :-)

Right wing, left wing- anybody who is violating privacy in this fashion is fiendish in my book.

Pelosi said she was going to drain the congressional swamp. Unfortunately, when she did she found this little snake (Rangel) waving back at her.

Well, apparently you got in on the fun, just in the nick of time.
