At least he will if Americans learn the insufferable, arrogant, idiot — radical socialist Susan Sarandon — has promised to move to Canada or Italy if he wins.
SUSAN SARANDON, who appeared in three films last year and won kudos for her TV movie “Bernard and Doris,” is still not a contented soul. She says if John McCain gets elected, she will move to Italy or Canada. She adds, “It’s a critical time, but I have faith in the American people.”
…What? You thought Susan of all people would be for Hillary Clinton? Well, no. She told John Hiscock: “I thought the whole point of feminism is that you’re not supposed to be defined by gender. I don’t understand the reasoning behind that, because I wouldn’t vote for Condoleezza Rice, and I hated Margaret Thatcher.”
American Elephant adds: So, does she take her insufferable idiot husband, Tim Robbins, with her?
I know what’s on your Christmas list!

That is the headline from an important piece by John Hinderaker at Power Line blog, on Sunday, when many of you were out at the barbecue. Mr. Hinderaker says:
On the stump, Barack Obama usually concludes his comments on Iraq by saying, “and it hasn’t made us safer.” It is an article of faith on the left that nothing the Bush administration has done has enhanced our security, and, on the contrary, its variouis alleged blunders have only contributed to thenumber of jihadists who want to attack us.
Empirically, however, it seems beyond dispute that something has made us safer since 2001. Over the course of the Bush administration, successful attacks on the United States and its interests overseas have dwindled to virtually nothing.
Some perspective here is required. While most Americans may not have been paying attention, a considerable number of terrorist attacks on America and American interests abroad were launched from the 1980s forward, too many of which were successful. What follows is a partial history:

For over 230 years, far better men than I have risked everything fighting for our independence, fighting to keep us together, putting themselves between America and the evils of the world. They are doing so now.
To a man they knew the dangers. To a man they went anyway.
Today we honor those who have fallen to keep us safe and free. We are forever in their debt.
We must always remember what they’ve done for us. Too many take it for granted. Still others really have no idea. That makes it even more important that the rest of us remember and honor them.
“Greater love hath no man than this, that he lay down his life for his friends.” (John 15:13)
Of all the Memorial Day tributes I found, this was my favorite, but it is one that I can’t embed on our page, so I hope you’ll click the link and watch it. These were also very moving tributes…
Thank you to all who serve. God bless and keep those who gave all.

According to Investors Business Daily, “at a hearing of the House Committee on Global Warming Representative Edward Markey, D—Mass., said he didn’t understand why President Bush wasn’t releasing oil from the nation’s reserves stored in underground salt domes in Texas and Louisiana.”
Energy Secretary Samuel Bodman attempted to explain that the reserves are “meant to deal with…the physical interruption of the flow of oil to this country. We don’t have that issue today.”
Representative Markey apparently believes that releasing oil from our strategic reserve in order to lower the price of gas at the pump is more important than national security.
Last year Representative Markey introduced a bill (H.R. 39 ) that would make the 1.2 million acre coastal plain of ANWR — which was set aside for oil exploration when ANWR was established — a permanently off-limits wilderness. Please note that the area to be drilled is about the size of an ordinary airport in an area the size of South Carolina, and is mostly mud-flats.
So extracting 10 billion barrels of oil from ANWR is unimportant and doesn’t affect the price of gas, but opening the strategic reserves…
Can you follow this logic?
