It's All Coming Together Now

This article on a recent study of vegetarians/vegans must have some very self-righteous people rather conflicted.

MELBOURNE: Scientists have discovered that going veggie could be bad for your brain-with those on a meat-free diet six times more likely to suffer brain shrinkage.

This explains a lot- particularly the existence of the Green Party.

Great McCain Radio Ad

I've got to hand it to McCain's advertising team, they're doing a great job of getting key points across.

Disturbing LA Times Article

The LA Times has an article today about a Canadian doctor who's "warning" people that Sarah Palin's new found visibility may cause more women to pass on having abortions.

As it stands, 9 out of 10 babies suspected of having Down's Syndrome are aborted in Canada. Apparently any less than that is unacceptable for our most compassionate liberal friends.

Great, To the Point, McCain Ad

Matt Damon Needs A Kick in the Teeth

Though I still have no idea why celebrities are interviewed on such topics in the first place, Matt Damon went on a tirade against Sarah Palin.

He called the situation a "bad Disney movie" and bemoaned her lack of experience. He apparently took it as self-evident that Obama had more experience.

Not that I cared for him before, but I certainly won't be giving any of my money to his future ventures.

Interestingly enough Damon has been the figurehead for this new Darfur initiative that pleads for across-the-aisle cooperation in dealing with Sudan.

Note to Matt: "Good Will Hunting" was a movie. We don't really think you're some pensive savant who's pronouncements mean anymore than anybody else.

Russians Who Prefer Hard-Line Ex-KGB Types Also Favor Obama. Hmmmm..

A poll of Russians finds that they like ex-KGB Prime Minister Vladimir Putin, a man who has a penchant for making his critics disappear- literally. Oh, and they also prefer Barack Obama.

33% of Russians polled said they would vote for Putin if given another chance against current president Medved, though oddly a full 44% would not say how they would vote. It would seem to me that 44% abstaining suggests a climate of fear in which those who don't back Putin at least won't dare go on record as rejecting him.

Obama recieved four times the support of those Russians polled than did John McCain.

So people who prefer a hard-line, authoritarian style government that crushes dissent also prefer Obama. At least conservatives aren't surprised.

Yeah America, Listen To This Guy

At MTV's video music awards last night British comedian Russel Brand (how he's considered well known enough to host an awards show is beyond me) called George Bush a "retarded cowboy" and mocked teens who swear off sex and remarked "a little sex every once in awhile never hurt anybody" (in an extreme case of irony, this guy has gone to rehab for sex addiction).

He also added this: "please ask of you, people of America, please elect Barack Obama, please, on behalf of the world."

Here's a link to the story, and another one.

Palin Derangement Syndrome

Here's a quote from one of the moonbats over at the Democratic Underground, showing just how unhinged the choice of Sarah Palin makes them:

"I will attack her for whatever reason suits the purpose of making her look bad to my audience.

When I am among secular people I will attack her for being a religious zealot. When I am among people from church, I will attack her for being of a heterodox denomination. When I am among liberals I will attack her for her conservative views. When I am among conservatives I will attack her for her for anything they are prove to view as shortcomings in ideology. When I am among women, I will deride the obvious pandering of her nomination and the fact that McCain must not think much of womens’ intelligence, when I am among conservative men who dislike women in authority, I will rub their noses in it.

If I can attack her for opposite reasons over the course of an afternoon, I will consider it an accomplishment.

Same goes for Johnny Boy."

Of course the Daily Kos couldn't let themselves be outdone. Here's a sampling of their "discourse" via Ace of Spades:
"If health insurance for all, an end to the Iraq War, an end to torture and illegal wiretapping, and a sane energy policy can be obtained at the price of destroying one teenage girl, her family, and the surrendering our self-respect I see that as a cheap trade."


"Are you telling me that you would not use character-destroying lies to ensure a war against Iran does not occur? . . . What choice do we have? When faced with monsters, we have to be monstrous ourselves."


Are you telling me you would not destroy the love a family holds for one another, even if it meant letting someone who would destroy the constitution become president?

As Gagdad Bob from One Cosmos said, in what is easily the quote of the day:

"..hell hath no fury like a leftist who encounters a female or African-American who doesn't need him.
