Apparently the Obama campaign reduced some security setting on their website, so now it's possible to enter your name as "Saddam Hussein" and donate money with your credit card. Mark Steyn is outraged at the fraudulent contribution possibilities. Dude: the credit card numbers are a bit harder to fake, and they have names and addresses that go with them.
K-Lo is still excited about some new Fred Thompson video. Maybe it would help my insomnia - it's worth a shot.
Stanley Kurtz has an outraged but unintelligible post about Obama, the New Party, and a website called "Fight the Smears." Does anybody really know what he's talking about? Does anybody really care? If so, I can't imagine why...
Stanley Kurtz is also all over the "Obama-Ayers-Khalidi connection" like flies on horseshit. So if horseshit is your thing, you know where to go.
Ken Adelman's become one of Obama's most unlikely endorsers. Jonah sez: "I just wish he'd offer something that approached an intellectually defensible explanation. Because this ain't it." "This" being:
Seems straightforward enough to me. Dunno what Jonah's having a hard time grasping.
Granted, McCain's views are closer to mine than Obama's. But I've learned over this Bush era to value competence along with ideology. Otherwise, our ideology gets discredited, as it has so disastrously over the past eight years.
McCain's temperament -- leading him to bizarre behavior during the week the economic crisis broke -- and his judgment -- leading him to Wasilla -- depressed me into thinking that "our guy" would be a(nother) lousy conservative president. Been there, done that.I'd rather a competent moderate president.
Andy McCarthy also goes batshit about the "Obama-Ayers-Khalili connection." As the old caving ditty goes:
I smell batshit, oh yes batshit,
it's not rat shit, it's batshit for sure,
it's not cat shit, and it certainly isn't horse manure.
Bonus points for guessing the tune.
In Maggie Gallagher's tiny brain, people who want gays to have the right to get married are marriage opponents, and people who want to prevent them from getting married are marriage supporters.
And in other news, war is peace, freedom is slavery, and ignorance is strength.
At least Maggie's discussing an actual issue of some significance in the lives of real human beings, even if she's on the wrong side of it. That's more than can be said for her fellow Cornerites, who are off chasing bizarre conspiracy theories and the like.
And finally (i.e. that's about as much Corner insanity as a guy should inflict on himself at one sitting), Andy McCarthy angrily defends having been more gullible than Michelle Malkin, with respect to the McCain volunteer who falsely claimed to have been attacked by a large black man. Sucks to be a sucker, doesn't it? Skepticism is good.
