The "It Was Too Cold for a Global Warming Event" Story of the Day

Thomas Lifson at The American Thinker has this gem: Warmist polar expedition was cancelled due to extreme cold

Explorers suffered extreme frostbite in the dangerously cold conditions, leading Lifson to wonder if these publicity-seekers were undone by believing their own propaganda.

They need to alter their mindset to not believe their own propaganda, like Al Gore. You won’t soon see Al too afraid of greenhouse gases not to fly in a private plane, stop heating his mansions and pools, or to travel to the North Pole. The latter is a good thing, because given his current size and color, he’d be at an extreme risk of being humped to death by a turned-on polar bear.

Breaking: Somebody's Really Sick of Primary Season in New Hampshire

A man claiming to have a bomb and/or guns has reportedly taken hostages in a Hillary Clinton for President campaign office in Rochester, New Hampshire. Local station WHDH reports that the downtown area is being evacuated.

Jimmy Carter en route to negotiate a settlement. Just kidding… I think…

Update: The hostage taker is demanding to speak to Mrs. Clinton. He either has a political grievance or needs the number of Hillary’s Botox dealer.

Update II: The guy surrenders. The fact that he wasn’t on his prescription medications is now being carefully scripted into Hillary’s pitch for national health care.

All the "Justice" You Can (Teddy) Bear

Oddly enough, this is Islam’s version of “getting off the hook” — the Middle-East’s answer to the O.J. Simpson murder trial verdict:

WASHINGTON (AFP) – The United States, backing staunch ally Britain, branded as “outrageous” the jail sentence of a British teacher in Sudan who let pupils call a teddy bear “Mohammed” as part of a class project.

“Obviously, it’s an outrage,” White House spokeswoman Dana Perino said after a judicial source in Sudan said Gillian Gibbons, 54, would be jailed for 15 days for insulting Islam and then deported.

Unless of course Gibbons commits the heinous crime of being raped while in prison, which Sharia law would aggressively address — by stoning her to death.

Otherwise, the sentence could have been worse — as being deported from Sudan is like getting kicked out of the stands at an Oakland Raiders game. In Sudan, however, thousands are calling for Gibbons and her teddy bear of blasphemy to be put to death.

Frankly, I’m more shocked that people haven’t been stoned to death for referring to it as a “Teddy” bear — named of course after Theodore Roosevelt, who once wrote this in an essay:

It is only the warlike power of a civilized people that can give peace to the world. The Arab wrecked the civilization of the Mediterranean coasts, the Turk wrecked the civilization of southeastern Europe, and the Tatar desolated from China to Russia and to Persia, setting back the progress of the world for centuries, solely because the civilized nations opposed to them had lost the great fighting qualities, and, in becoming over peaceful, had lost the power of keeping peace with a strong hand. Their passing away marked the beginning of a period of chaotic barbarian warfare.

Calling it a “teddy” bear should be far more insulting to Islam than naming it Mohammad, but I won’t bring it up until Gibbons is safely out of Sudan, just in case the Sudanese courts haven’t done any research on Theodore Roosevelt.

The Art of War, Circa 2007

We’ll just never learn:

Textron Inc.’s Cessna Aircraft Co. will become the first U.S. manufacturer to turn over complete production of an airplane to a Chinese partner, a move intended to cut production costs and foster a nascent private-aviation market in China.

Textron figured that since the food and toy imports from China are such high quality, why not let ’em make our airplanes, too?

Given the recent track record of Chinese products, if we now just let them make our razor blades, cars, beer, step ladders and electrical appliances, they’ll be able to take over the U.S. without firing a shot — and they’ll fly in on anything but a Cessna, of course.

Please Return Your Life Partners to Their Original Upright Positions

If you’re going to be flying soon and are looking for a discount on holiday travel, Alaska Air has some great deals for you.

Oh, but you have to admit to being gay first… sort of.

The “gay” page at Alaska Air is here. So, if you’re looking for a good deal, aren’t afraid to say you’re gay, and you don’t mind sitting next to Barney Frank while watching the in-flight movie, “Edge of Seventeen,” you’ve found your airline!

Ken Gives Barbie STD, Bad Bush to Blame

The Campaign for America’s Future, whatever that is, has an ad in which Ken picks up Barbie, and ends up giving her a rather odd type of STD. Can you guess what it is?

Here’s the best part: It’s Bush’s fault! No, seriously. And by Bush, I mean the president.

Update: Allahpundit at Hot Air asks what the mode of STD transmission would be, as Ken dolls are famously non-developed.

The Associated Press: (Re)Writing History

The Associated Press can always be counted on to help carry on more obvious fakery than a Malibu beach bunny’s bikini top.

Here’s a couple of sentences from a story about Al Gore’s visit to the White House on Monday:

They have not met privately since then-President-elect Bush paid a visit — short, and not that sweet — to Gore’s residence in December 2000.

That was back when the acrimony was fresh, in a country still in disbelief over an election that seemed never-ending. Ultimately, the U.S. Supreme Court certified Bush’s 537-vote victory margin over Gore in Florida to settle the outcome.

Once again, for those challenged in recounting (if you’ll pardon the expression) historical facts, the Supreme Court did not certify Bush’s victory — Initially, seven SCOTUS Justices concluded that the recount ordered by the Florida Supreme Court violated the Equal Protection Clause.

In a subsequent 5-4 ruling, SCOTUS issued a stay of the Florida Supreme Court’s ruling that would have had people digging into ballot boxes until the Second Coming, or enough Gore votes were “discovered” — whichever came first.

The Florida Secretary of State certified Bush’s Florida win before most of the legal wranglings, and it was allowed to stand — unlike the AP’s version of history.

Speaking of Gore’s visit to the White House, Scrappleface has more on that story: Bush welcomes Gore with low-carbon ceremony
