Snowe whinning to NYT about GOP criticism to her vote for Obama stimulus

I would imagine that the she’s taken some heat that she was not expecting hence the self absorbed lament to the NYT. Specter’s decision had nothing to do with ideology and everything to do with his political hide.

Underreacting on my part

My first thought about the Air Force One flyover earlier this week was that it was an overreation to another perceived Obama excess. Well, it wasn’t and as time goes on, it gets worse.

What happened to all that good judgement we were told about?

Arlen Specter in an act of self preservation that stomps on anyone’s principles

Yeah, Dems, he give you that fillibuster proof thing in the Senate. But this guy is all about himself and his seat. He doesn’t have a rats ass about anything but covering his own political hide. He’s switched parties before. If he were a real man of principle, he would have gone the same rout as Joe Lieberman and faced the voters of the party who elected him and then gone independent. If he can sell his vote on card check, he will do so. It’s likely that he sold his vote on the stimulus the same way.

METS: Good job by Maine reveals the way Mets have to win games when Johan doesn’t pitch

A quality start, eh. I wonder whe this psuedo stat first came into existance. Whenever it was, the Mets are obsessed with it. John Maine was terrific yesterday in his best start of the year. Hopefully its a signal that he’s back. But for Mets fans game almost seems like one they’ve seen before. The starter keeps them into the game thru six and then the Mets use three relievers to hold down the win. The more pitrchers in, the incresed likelihood that one of them is no at their best that day. Yesterdays game is the scenario that Omar Minaya set up in the off season when he added JJ Putz and Francisco Rodriguez. One or two guys get them to the 8th and a sigh of relief. The Mets starters are going to have to get much deeper into games or they will not win the division this year. They will wear down the bullpen again. The Mets have played 19 games and four Mets relievers – Sean Green, Bobby Parnell, Pedro Feliciano and Putz have already appeared in more than half of the games. And this number does not take into account the number of times they’ve had to get up and get ready, but don’t appear.

Cheap shot by my side

Look, guys, if the President had known the flight plan would take Air Force One over lower Manhattan and cause such hysteria, they wouldn’t have done it. Its the President for goodness sake. Stop it already. He gets priority as we have to get him where he’s supposed to be.

It’s time to turn around the violent gay marraige argument

Chalk up a member of the British Parlaiment as someone who finds it acceptable to be against gay marraige.

Liks so many of you, I have gay friends that I consider to be friends for life. The proponents of gay marraige cannot imply violence and be uncivil. Please stop them by speaking out. You are already accepted in our eyes. Do not let their hate take over.

Sadly its gotten to be to some extent as I want someone to take them on publically when – like this PM, Perez Hilton and some media types – are disresptful in ways that you cannot measure.

METS: Is it time to begin questioning the judgememt of Mets personnel decisions?

I’m afraid so. Recent roster moves with pitchers are fanatasy baseball like- Darren O’Day, Nelson Figueroa and now Casey Fossum. The Mets are treating pitchers like disposable free moves in your Yahoo league. After today’s performance by Oliver Perez, they should have demoted him to the bullpen and named Fossum to start in his place. Intead they put Fossum on the scrap heap for the waiver vultures to feed upon.

The Canadian media sees and says what the American media will not

Two seperate op-eds appeared in the conservative outlet, Canadia Free Press minced no words in their headline: “Tyranny Watch: Obama Begins Process to Remove US Citizens Rights” and “The Birth of American Socialism.” Penned by Sher Zieve and Timothy Birdnow respectively, the two essays signal that the world sees what Americans refuses to come to grips with.

The American media, in their partisan zeal to defeat George Bush and elect a Democrat refused to do their job in telling America about Barack Obama. They were able to make the 2008 presidential election into an American Idol vote, thus giving an uininformed country a man subversive to its own ideals and empowering a Democrat Party who’s primary agenda has always been about placing its own interests first.

The conservative media and its like-minded colleagues in the blogosphere did indeed report on Obama and detailed the concerns that voters should have bee made aware of. While John McCain had to deal with a hit piece by the NY Times over an improper relationship with a lobbyist (the Times is facing a suit on this) and Sarah Palin endured the kind of scrutiny that came in the form of attacks, Obama was fawned over in ways that are an embarrassment to journalist.

The headlines in the Canadian publication shows just how accuarte the concerns the right had for Obama were. The frankness of the headlines also are indications that its even worse than we thought.
