That Was Fast: MoveOn.org Takes Down ‘General Betray Us’ Ad

Yesterday I wrote a post about General Petraeus being brought in to run the operations in Afghanistan.

A simple Google search led me to the MoveOn.org website where they still had the following ad from 2007 displayed:

The exact same page where I got that image is here, and you’ll notice it’s been removed after having stayed there for almost three years.

Tell me MoveOn.org doesn’t work hand-in-hand with the White House. But MoveOn really sold out on this one, don’t you think?

Poll: Sharron Angle Leads Harry [Last Name Withheld By Request] in Nevada Senate Race

Harry [Last name withheld by request], Senate Majority Leader and father of Nevada gubernatorial candidate Rory [Last name also withheld so voters don’t identify him with his father who is now also concealing his last name], now trails his opponent, Sharron Angle 48% to 41%, according to a Rasmussen poll.

Harry [Last name withheld by request] trails in spite of numerous endorsements from President [Last name also withheld by request].

This just in: Rory [Last name also withheld so voters don’t identify him with his father who is now also concealing his last name] and his campaign have accused “Tea Party operatives” of vandalism for allegedly spray painting Rory’s actual last name on his yard signs and bumper stickers throughout the state:

“The Tea Party’s hateful attempt to remind voters that I’m related to my father is shameful and indicative of the Angle campaign’s desperation,” said Rory [Last name also withheld so voters don’t identify him with his father who is now also concealing his last name].

Global Warming Causes Masseuse to Accuse Al Gore of Trying to Have Sex With Her

null

This could make Laurie David jealous.

A summary from Freedom’s Lighthouse:

Here is a video report from Portland, Oregon’s KGW-TV Channel 8 which details allegations by a Portland masseuse that former Vice-President Al Gore subjected her to repeated “unwanted sexual touching” in a hotel room back in 2006. No charges have yet been filed, and Gore has given no response to the allegations. The woman has reportedly met with police. The reporter says they have verified that Gore was in Portland on the date that the alleged incident took place.

The news story:

Gore was checked into the hotel under the name “Mr. Stone” (possibly because global warming increases your risk of kidney stones):

null

More details from the complaint filed by the woman — who is obviously delirious from climate change. Don’t read this if the though of Al Gore only in a towel makes you ill:

In a transcript of the 2009 interview released by police, the woman said she went to the hotel for a 10:30 p.m. appointment with “Mr. Stone.”

She said she was doing requested abdominal work on Gore when he started to moan and demanded that she go lower. “I was shocked, and I did not massage beyond what is considered a safe, nonsexual area of the abdomen,” she said. “He further insisted and acted angry, becoming verbally sharp and loud.”

The woman said Gore grabbed her hand and shoved it toward his groin. She told police he later tried to have sex with her and began caressing her before she got away.

“I did not immediately call the police as I feared being made into a public spectacle and my reputation being destroyed,” she said.

Destroyed reputation? Come on! These this is a high-powered Democrat we’re talking about here. I’m sure it would have been fine.

And can you imagine doing abdominal work on Al Gore? That would cost extra because you’d have to take a cab to get to the other side of him.

Of course, this is all merely alleged and the police didn’t feel there was enough to follow up on. But it seems like if the woman only wanted to extort money from Gore she’d have contacted him privately first instead of going to the police.

Either Al Gore didn’t do these things and the masseuse isn’t being truthful, or she is telling the truth and Al’s about to turn out to be the Tiger Woods of junk science — either way you can blame global warming.

Usually Al’s pickup line of “You know, I invented the Internet” is an automatic panty-melter — I don’t know what went wrong this time.

Update: I’m ashamed that I forgot to think of this: Blame Bush!

Update II: Reports say that the masseuse asked Gore if she could give him a “happy ending” and Al replied, “I doubt you alone can stop the ice caps from melting.”

Why Doesn’t Harry Reid’s Son Want to Remind Voters of His Last Name?

Rory Reid, running for governor of Nevada, clearly doesn’t want voters to confuse him with his father — soon-to-be ex Senator Harry Reid — on election day. Rory’s people must figure it’s best just to drop the “Reid” altogether.

Find Rory’s last name anywhere in his latest campaign ad and win a prize — this is the political advertising equivalent of checking into a hotel under the name “Smith”:

Bonus challenge: Try and find Rory’s last name anywhere on his campaign website homepage — or even on his “Meet Rory” page.

Seems like if your father was the increasingly unpopular Majority Leader of the US Senate that is spending the country into oblivion, you might want to mention that at least in your bio, doesn’t it? Okay, maybe not.

I haven’t seen a guy go this far out of his way not to mention his last name since Skippy Hitler ran for mayor of Jerusalem in the 1950’s.

Obama Chooses Man His Secretary of State Called a Liar to Replace Gen. McChrystal (Obama Used to be a Petraeus Skeptic Too)

President Obama has accepted General McChrystal’s resignation, and Obama’s choice of a replacement for McChrystal is sure to further anger a left-wing in America who is in the throes of realizing that many of Obama’s promises to turn the nation away from Bush’s policies weren’t worth the paper Hopenchange was written on.

General Petraeus, Obama’s choice as McChrystal’s replacement, was the face of Bush’s “illegal and immoral war” in Iraq, and has run from most accounts as successful an operation there as could be expected. This is the latest in a long line of slaps in the face of the lefties who carried Obama into office on their shoulders like a winning coach in Fantasy Football.

The US is still in Iraq, and still committed to Afghanistan. The Patriot Act has been renewed. Domestic spying has by some measures increased under Obama. Gitmo is still open. Obama retained Bush’s Secretary of Defense and now has put the general who the left (including, as you’ll see, Obama, Hillary, etc) demonized for years in charge of winning in Afghanistan.

It seems like only yesterday the Soros-funded Obama backers at MoveOn.org were running ads like this:

null

The Senate later overwhelmingly voted to condemn the anti-Petraeus MoveOn ad, and guess which Senators skipped the vote? Obama and Biden. Hillary voted “no.”

Speaking of Hillary, Obama’s current Secretary of State, less than three years ago, called Petraeus a liar right to his face:

The left can add Obama’s choosing of Petraeus to the long list of things that might make this “Bush’s third term” in a sense, but Team Obama knows that in 2012 the left will have nobody else to vote for — it’s not like they’re gonna vote for Palin.

Maybe the fact that the Kossers considered Hillary a hero for calling Petraeus a liar means that Obama choosing him to lead the charge in Afghanistan will be a big catalyst for the left to start a “draft Hillary” push.

Update: Here’s Senator Obama questioning General Petraeus in 2007. Obama was certainly skeptical of the General’s veracity — so the question is, was he playing politics then, is he playing politics now, or both? With politicians, the answer is almost always the latter.

Oh, and go to the 3:40 mark to hear Obama use an early rendition of his trademark “kicking ass” motto.

The Obama Administration Lied, the Drilling Moratorium Died

If the Obama administration does in fact believe that deep water drilling should not continue at all until more is learned about the BP accident, with a federal judge overturning Obama’s across-the-board drilling moratorium, the administration became victims of their own addiction to misrepresentation, lies and fraud:

A federal judge in New Orleans halted President Obama’s deepwater drilling moratorium on Tuesday, saying the government never justified the ban and appeared to mislead the public in the wake of the Gulf of Mexico oil spill.

Judge Martin L.C. Feldman issued an injunction, saying that the moratorium will hurt drilling-rig operators and suppliers and that the government has not proved an outright ban is needed, rather than a more limited moratorium.

He also said the Interior Department also misstated the opinion of the experts it consulted. Those experts from the National Academy of Engineering have said they don’t support the blanket ban.

“Much to the government’s discomfort and this Court’s uneasiness, the summary also states that ‘the recommendations contained in this report have been peer-reviewed by seven experts identified by the National Academy of Engineering.’ As the plaintiffs, and the experts themselves, pointedly observe, this statement was misleading,” Judge Feldman said in his 22-page ruling.

A few days ago, the drilling experts said that the Obama administration not only misrepresented their opinions, but actually modified the reports after they signed them. In any world other than Chicago-style politics, this would be called fraud and somebody would have lost their job over it — at the very least (Ken Salazar is testifying at a Senate subcommittee hearing today, incidentally).

If the Obama administration is so correct in their “assessments,” why the need to lie about the facts? Maybe some enterprising reporter can ask Robert Gibbs that question today to give him something new to dance around.

As for Obama’s upcoming lawsuit against Arizona challenging that state’s immigration law, if Team Obama is going to fall back on the old habit of wildly misrepresenting facts to win the case, you’d think they’d look at what just happened with the drilling moratorium ruling. If they do take a close look at that ruling, Obama’s people will reconsider their usual strategy of lying through their teeth and hoping the judge is as gullible as the people who put Obama in the White House in the first place.

Nobody’s buying the schtick anymore.

Update: The judge who made the ruling has oil investments. This will be a big Dem talking point but it doesn’t undo the Obama administration’s lies and distortions concerning the moratorium.

What Do the Obama Administration and Mexico Have in Common?

Both work diligently against the interests of the United States and are filing legal challenges against Arizona:

PHOENIX — Mexico is asking a federal court in Arizona to declare the state’s new immigration law unconstitutional.

Lawyers for Mexico on Tuesday submitted a legal brief in support of a lawsuit challenging the law.

“Lawyers for Mexico”? I thought that’s what we’ve been paying Eric Holder to do. Mexico’s wasting money on their own legal team when they already have one in Washington DC.

It has to be asked: When Mexico is challenging the “constitutionality” of Arizona’s law, are they referring to Mexico’s constitution, or the US constitution? If Obama & Friends are in charge much longer the two might be interchangeable.

It’s truly amazing that we have an American president teaming up with a foreign country in bringing legal proceedings against a US state.

Here’s Mexico’s “reasoning”:

Mexico says its interest in having consistent relations with the United States shouldn’t be frustrated by one state.

Yes, Mexico would prefer that all US states have lax security and hands tied by politically correctness.

The Goracle Has Some Competition

Who is that competition? Muhammad, of course:

null

To help with the cause of curbing climate change, Al Qaeda has pledged to only blow up hybrid cars. Everybody’s doing their part!

As of right now I haven’t figured out if Muslims are just starting to get into the “green” movement because they care about the environment, or because they found out there’s a lot of money in it.

From Van Helsing at Moonbattery:

Kristiane Backer scores a moonbat hat trick: an environmentalist Muslim spawned by the European version of the cultural cesspool MTV.

This is part of a new Islamic PR campaign:

A new Islamic propaganda campaign called ‘Inspired by Muhammad’ has been launched, and advertising posters are now going up in London featuring slogans such as ‘I believe in social justice. So did Muhammad’ and ‘I believe in women’s rights. So did Muhammad’. It’s hard to tell if this campaign is run by sadly deluded people who actually believe the slogans are accurate or if this is an example of dissimulation for a kufr audience.

The women’s rights one has to be my favorite (more about the woman on the poster here):

null

Because when you think “women’s rights” you think “Islam.”

One thing’s for certain: Comedy Central won’t make any jokes about any of this.
