Dennis Kucinich, Hillary Clinton, Oprah, Larry Flynt and Who Got Whom

Hello America! That’s right. You heard me correct. The Porn industry endorses me, Dennis Kucinich. Especially Hustler’s founder Larry Flynt. Larry Flynt loves the Dennis! He had a party for me and everything. Yes, Elizabeth showed her tongue ring for that one … and the other ring. You figure it out.

Yes, Obama got Oprah. Hillary has Bill, but really what choice does he have? But, I have the coolest. The porn industry America! Oh what a party. No, the press was not invited. But, when you’re re-enacting Caligula you don’t want Hannah Strom there judging.

Now America, I need to clarify. The Larry Flynt presidential endorsement marked the culmination of everyone in the industry getting on board. What do I mean?

Ron Jeremy was sticking to Hillary for a while because of some moment they had in a toilet stall in New Haven with Bill in 1972.

Katie Morgan wanted Alan Keyes. So did Jenna Jamison, Stormy Daniels, Tawny Roberts and Peter North … because it’s true.

Dustin Diamond wanted Mike Huckabee. Yes Dustin Diamond had to be included.

And finally, Paris Hilton got on board after we told her George W couldn’t run again.

I got the Porn Industry America!

This has got to be one of the best political spoofs of the season.

Why Does Barack Obama Associate With Black Bigots?

Another great article by John Ridley

 This one concerns Obama’s support by a black minister who is openly anti-gay.  Oh Liberals, where forth arth thou rage? Among the great advice my father gave me as a child — besides never buy tires at full price — was that the only thing lower than a car dealer is a used car dealer, and car dealers are scum of the earth.

To paraphrase — the only thing worse than a bigot is a black bigot…

And to take it a step further would be to include a black bigot who drapes himself in the cloth and hates in the name of the Lord.

And, yet, there is Donnie McClurkin who’s planning an SRO three day stand with the brother who would be president, Barack Obama.

A lot of folks are calling McClurkin anti gay or a gay hater or a straight out homophobe ’cause he says that he’s in a “war” against homosexuality, and homosexuality is a choice and gays can be fixed.

A lot like, I’m sure, Ann Coulter would tell you Jews can be perfected — and while we’re on the subject of the absurd, the Patriots can be beaten because their passing offense really can be stopped.

Anyway…

With Obama coming under fire for including a hate monger in his Compassion and Unity tour, McClurkin shot back at all the anti-hata haters and said that his comments were taken out of context.

A lot like, I’m sure, Bill O’Reilly will tell you his comments are often taken out of context.

McClurkin feeling that gays can be perfected does not come from nowhere. According to McClurkin, as a child he was raped by a male family member, which so affected him, he “became” a gay man for some 20 years before religion helped “straighten” him. I want to stress very, very emphatically that a young person being molested by ANYONE is beyond humorless. It is sick and depraved.

But as far as McClurkin becoming gay as a result, then later having ministry cure him, well…

A lot like, I’m sure, Ted Haggard would tell you a little church can cure you of the need to have your gay masseuse sell you a little meth.

According to a piece in the Chicago Trib, McClurkin now says he is straight and that his ministry is open to those who say they no longer want to live as a gay person. What he doesn’t do, he says, is crusade against homosexuality.

And for the record, my house is open to all people who no longer want to be redheads. If you’re a redhead, then get the F out! But I’m certainly not crusading against redheads.

And this is the guy Obama’s gonna share a stage with?

In an official statement Obama has said that he “strongly disagrees” with Reverend McClurkin’s views, yet he still intends to share a stage with him.

But, Barack, you can’t say you strongly disagree with the head of the Klan, then invite him on stage just ’cause he knows his way around a Johnny Cash song (no disrespect to the late Johnny Cash or his family, just the first singer who popped into my head). http://www.huffingtonpost.com/john-ridley/donnie-mcclurkin-and-perf_b_69772.html 

Why Are Liberals So Afraid of Baby Jesus?

By John RidleyHe was America’s first born again president. He was deacon of a Baptist church that — during his bid for presidency — he had to sever his membership with because they would not allow blacks to become members.Shades of Huckabee.Shades of Romney.But I’m talking about Jimmy Carter who was then, as he remains now, a hero of the liberal fringe. The far left has no problem with Carter’s faith, and never feared that he would be more of a theologian than politician.And yet…Huckabee runs a Christmas-themed ad. The liberals see a floating cross, and believe that alone make the man unfit to be president. Instead, I think that makes some on the far left too paranoid to trust with a vote.The floating cross as subliminal imagery of Christ? How about that huge Christ – mas(s) tree sitting over Hukabee’s shoulder as actual imagery of Christ? You know, just like the tree that sits at the White House in Washington where all the government offices are shut down on Dec. 25 — the day we celebrate as the birth of baby Jesus.And yet, despite the fact the majority of us acknowledge Christmas in some way, in typically liberal fashion the fringe uses the censorship of political correctness to turn “Merry Christmas” in a verboten phrase.What’s particularly galling is the left’s selective prosecution of religiosity. There is, as first mentioned, Jimmy Carter and his faith which causes no liberal ripples. And few liberals batted an eye when Barack Obama launched his Embrace the Change tour with black ministers — despite the fact one was (and still is) a homophobe. When Harold Ford Jr. ran a political ad filmed in a church there wasn’t a word of derision spoken from the left as they knew such an ad would pull votes for Mr. Ford in Tennessee. And during their presidential runs no one on the left accused the reverends Jackson or Sharpton of being too tied to the cloth.As a cohost of MSNBC’s Morning Joe I’ve had the opportunity to talk to Governor Huckabee on a couple of occasions. He’s no zealot. I don’t agree with Huckabee on every issue. But, then, I don’t agree with any candidate on every issue. Huckabee does agree that Jimi Hendrix was probably the greatest guitarist ever which is not a reason to vote for him, but certainly a reason to at least give a listen to what he has to say. And during his tenure as Governor Huckabee didn’t exactly turn Arkansas into a theocracy.If I could give the Governor one tip to quiet his critics, it would be to run an ad somewhere acknowledging the start of Kwanzaa on Dec. 26th.By the way, how many of you liberals even knew on what day Kwanzaa began?If the far left were smart, instead of continuing to make religion a wedge issue, they would — as Obama has smartly tried to do — take religion off the table by displaying their faith. The majority of this quadrennial’s Republican candidates have already proven what an empty phrase “family values” is. By taking away religion, it leaves the Republicans the battlefield of the economy, Iraq and foreign policy on which to fight for the presidency.
And that’s a field on which the Democrats could certainly win.

When Is No Experience, Experience? With Hillary of Course

Hillary Clinton casts herself as the Democratic candidate with the most experience, at least more than Obama.  Yet on close examination, as Patrick Healy writes in the article below, this is a case of no experience that is equal to experience.  As Healy points out, Hillary held no security clearance, thus could not and did not attend any classified briefings related to foreign affairs.  With no security clearance, she could not receive daily briefings, nor could she read any classified reports, even those classified as “Confidential”, one of the lowest levels.  A typical Army private would have a “Confidential” clearance, and many have access to Secret documents.  An National Security Information would never be allowed in her hands.  How, without this vital access to top level classified information did she form any informed opinions regarding international affairs, military planning, even the most mundane communications to and from a US embassy?  How, during the times when she was not speaking to Bill Clinton did she influence his policy decisions?  The answers are very simple, she didn’t acquire the level of experience she now touts.  The sous chef in the White House had a higher clearance than Hillary.As first lady, Hillary Rodham Clinton jawboned the president of Uzbekistan to leave his car and shake hands with people. She argued with the Czech prime minister about democracy. She cajoled Catholic and Protestant women to talk to one another in Northern Ireland. She traveled to 79 countries in total, little of it leisure; one meeting with mutilated Rwandan refugees so unsettled her that she threw up afterward.But during those two terms in the White House, Clinton did not hold a security clearance. She did not attend National Security Council meetings. She was not given a copy of the president’s daily intelligence briefing. She did not assert herself on the crises in Somalia, Haiti or Rwanda. And during one of President Bill Clinton’s major tests on terrorism, whether to bomb Afghanistan and Sudan in 1998, Clinton was barely speaking to her husband, let alone advising him, as the Lewinsky scandal dragged on.In seeking the Democratic presidential nomination, Clinton lays claim to two traits nearly every day: strength and experience. But as the junior senator from New York, she has few significant legislative accomplishments to her name. She has cast herself, instead, as a first lady like no other: a full partner to her husband in his administration, and, she says, all the stronger and more experienced for her “eight years with a front-row seat on history.”http://www.iht.com/articles/2007/12/25/america/clinton.php
