Double Standard

***...at The New York Times. Yes, I know it's shocking. Follow the link. They'll run an anti-Catholic ad, but they won't run an anti-Muslim ad. Go figure.

***Al Sharpton is shocked, SHOCKED, at Limbaugh's use of the word "slut." But listen to this rant about "homos," "Chinamen," and "crackers." Guess when you're black and you call yourself a reverend, you can pretty much say anything you want.

If offensive slurs are a problem for the left, why does Al Sharpton have a primetime slot on MSNBC?

The left has started a war against Rush Limbaugh -- a war it cannot win. Limbaugh said something for which he later apologized, and rather than accept that apology, the left and its media allies decided to exploit the situation, turning it into a crusade to take an opposing voice off the air.
Even the White House has jumped on this neo-fascist bandwagon. Not the Obama campaign. The White House. The People's House.
This is, pure and simple, a crusade to censor political speech disguising itself as something else, and it's a crusade led by Media Matters for America, the Obama political machine, and the mainstream media.

***Santorum wins Alabama, Mississippi. Romney wins Hawaii. This is getting interesting. I'll support anyone who opposes Obama. No, neither Santorum nor Romney is my first pick. But again, I'll support whomever ends up with the nomination.

***"No Budget, No Pay." This is a long shot bill that would cut off Congress' pay if they don't pass a budget. Sounds good to me, but I doubt it'll go anywhere.

***America's highest grossing fast food chains.

No surprise - the top three are McDonald's, Subway, and Burger King.

***After 244 years, Encyclopaedia Brittanica is ending its print edition.

***We elected a disaster and we're living in it.

***Dining on New York Strip steak and truffles, Biden tells attendees at a $10,000 per couple fundraiser that the GOP "doesn't know what it means to be middle class."
What a buffoon.

***Love it!

Every now and then,
when the world sits just right,
a gentle breath of heaven
fills my soul with delight...

***Have a great day!
