A READER AT A MAJOR NEWSROOM EMAILS: "Off the record, every suspicion you have about MSM being in the tank for O is true. We have a team of 4 people going thru dumpsters in Alaska and 4 in arizona. Not a single one looking into Acorn, Ayers or Freddiemae. Editor refuses to publish anything that would jeopardize election for O, and betting you dollars to donuts same is true at NYT, others. People cheer when CNN or NBC run another Palin-mocking but raising any reasonable inquiry into obama is derided or flat out ignored. The fix is in, and its working." I asked permission to reprint without attribution and it was granted.

Next thing Glenn will tell us that professional wrestling is rigged (Actually, that's not a bad simile, WWE = MSM).

Reparations by any other name ...

... will stink just as bad.

The Community Reinvestment Act and the (soon to be resurrected) $700 billion bad mortgage bailout bill that the CRA forced to be created are just pay-offs by our politicians for their white guilt. They never use their own money, first they forced banks to write loans they had no business writing and now they'll milk the taxpayers to payoff the mortgages of these Organized Communities who will not pay their mortgages themselves.

Today we pitched in another ONE TRILLION DOLLARS in lost stock equity. I think we've paid enough reparations already.

Who won the debate?

Seth McClung won the debate I was watching.

How could you be watching anything else?

Obama = 4 more Bush years

If McCain is the same as Bush.
"Now, we also have to recognize that this is a final verdict on eight years of failed economic policies promoted by George Bush, supported by Senator McCain, a theory that basically says that we can shred regulations and consumer protections and give more and more to the most, and somehow prosperity will trickle down."

"And over time, that, I think, is going to be a better recipe for economic growth than the -- the policies of President Bush that John McCain wants to -- wants to follow."
And Obama agrees with everything McCain says.
"I think Senator McCain's absolutely right that we need more responsibility…"

"Senator McCain is absolutely right that the earmarks process has been abused…"

"He's also right that oftentimes lobbyists and special interests are the ones that are introducing these…requests…"

"John mentioned the fact that business taxes on paper are high in this country, and he's absolutely right…"

"John is right we have to make cuts…"

"Senator McCain is absolutely right that the violence has been reduced as a consequence of the extraordinary sacrifice of our troops and our military families…"

"John — you're absolutely right that presidents have to be prudent in what they say…"

"Senator McCain is absolutely right, we cannot tolerate a nuclear Iran…"
It follows that Obama is the same as Bush.

Thank you for clarifying that, Senator Obama.

48-Block State

When is a form of identification proof of nothing?

When the Madison Vote Fraudsters specify the form of identification (I'm Jim Doyle and I approve this message).

Paragraph 6.34, Proof of residence required, of the Wisconsin Statutes specifies the following documents as establishing eligibility to vote. None of the listed documents completely proves the eligibility of the document holder to vote in Wisconsin. And this is without consideration of the ease of creation of fraudulent documents in this age of scanners, Photoshop and color printers. And also without considering the ongoing organized efforts to register fraudulent voters, including non-citizens of the United States, in Wisconsin.

(3) (a) An identifying document used to establish proof of an elector’s residence under sub. (2) shall contain the information required under par. (b) and is limited to one of the following

Of the 11 specified documents, only 5 will prove one's identity, and a mere 2 are proof of a Wisconsin domicile and eligibility to vote (assuming proof of U.S. Citizenship). Not one of the 11 documents proves U.S. Citizenship for the would-be voter.

Within the last five years, I have personally obtained documents 4, 5, 6, 8, 9, 10 and 11 in other states without establishing my domicile in those states. Despite my legitimate possession of those documents, I was never eligible to vote in any state other than Wisconsin (see my discussion of Domicile, here). I am familiar with many individuals domiciled outside of Wisconsin who have legitimately obtained many of these "proof of residence" documents in Wisconsin. These documents are proof of nothing.

Furthermore, Clause 7 specifically extends Wisconsin voting rights to non-residents of the State. This contradicts other requirements of Chapter 6 of the Statutes and of the Wisconsin Tax Code. Every non-resident student at a Wisconsin college or university who registers and votes in Wisconsin using their dormitory as their domicile is committing vote fraud.

The Wisconsin voter eligibility requirements are set up to facilitate vote fraud. It is well past time to create effective rules to validate the eligibility to vote of every voter in the State of Wisconsin. Me included.

The Royal Bank of McCain

Scene: A bunch of business people are at lunch, and one of them starts choking on some food.

And all the rest of the businesspeople see him, and one says, "Is the economy tanking?" One other says, "I definitely say the economy is tanking." The first says, "I know exactly what to do."

Cut to Obama, “The times are too serious to put our campaign on hold or ignore the full range of issues the next president will face.”

And as the man is still choking, Obama says “You’re meeting at a time of great turmoil for the American economy. We are now confronted with a financial crisis as serious as any that we’ve faced since the Great Depression. Action must be taken to restore confidence in our economy. A failure to act would have grave consequences for jobs, for savings and for the American people."

And then John McCain, over at some other table sees the choking man and just walks right over and gives him the Heimlich maneuver and saves him. The first guy says, "Just like Obama told you."

ANNOUNCER: Less talk. Make it happen. The McCain-Palin Administration.

Johnny Mac: I'm John McCain and I approve this message.

Something you don't see every day

Government-sponsored enterprises Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac were able to obtain a monopoly position in the mortgage market, especially the mortgage-backed securities market, because of the advantages bestowed upon them by the federal government.

Laws passed by Congress such as the Community Reinvestment Act required banks to make loans to previously underserved segments of their communities, thus forcing banks to lend to people who normally would be rejected as bad credit risks.

These governmental measures, combined with the Federal Reserve’s loose monetary policy, led to an unsustainable housing boom. The key measure by which the Fed caused this boom was through the manipulation of interest rates, and the open market operations that accompany this lowering.

Ron Paul making good sense. Is it too late to vote him the Presidency?

The Pelosi-Obama-Reid-Kagen Drilling Plan

This will be the result if Team P-O-R-K's drilling ruse becomes law. Why do they insist on importing oil to the U.S. in lieu of drilling here now, or ever?

Watch carefully, they are going to attach this farce to the $700 billion bailout bill.

UPDATE - I am wrong, wrong, wrong. The ban is gone.

Liberal racism

I have read several excuses for this poll which concludes that one-third of liberal democrats may not vote for Obama because of racial prejudice. On it's face, the poll seems ridiculous in concluding a large percentage of supposedly enlightened Americans still hold these prejudices almost a half-century after the fight for black civil rights and following decades of continuing indoctrination in the religion of diversity. But another recent event sheds this in a different light.

Sandra Bernhard's deranged anti-Palin rant included a vicious racial slur on black men. This large mass of human excrement warned Palin not to come into Manhattan or she'd be gang-raped by the "big black brothers."

Nevermind the racist epitaph of "big black brothers," I am focued on the common liberal perception that "gangs" of African-American males routinely target white women for rape. Statistically that liberal stereotype is absurd and there is no evidence for this. The Black Political Thought blog opines on this matter.
In fact, the play wears its politically VERY correct heart on its sleeve with its indictment of America as "A Man’s World, It’s a White Man’s World, It’s a F–ked Up White Man’s Racist World" and can only be suggested to be racist in its content if one is hell-bent on protecting White Folk for Sandra’s blistering indictment. When Sandra warns Sarah Palin not to come into Manhattan lest she get gang-raped by some of Sandra’s big black brothers, she’s being provocative, combative, humorous, and yes, let’s allow, disgusting. Really? She's being disgusting.

Who in the world finds the suggestion of gang-rape humorous? Why did she have to make it racial by saying "big black brothers?" Isn't that an affront to blacks everywhere?

According to news reports, the D.C. Jewish Community Center is supposedly very happy with their Bernhard show, and partied with Bernhard on opening night. Evidently, according to News Busters, they’re in tune with her right-bashing rage:

We’re proud of our producing -- proud of Sandra’s sense of timing -- taking the fight out to the house and to the street beyond, channeling so much of our rage and frustration at the bizarre recent twists of fortune since Karl Rove trotted out Sarah Palin for John McCain to briefly meet and then get in bed with.Sandra’s face is hanging 10 feet tall in a banner over the DCJCC steps and we’re proud that she’s a new emblem and ambassador for our theater and our center. She’s not the only one who represents us. But her large heart, her generous talent, and her big mouth are all a big part of who we are.
I am not exaggerating by stereotyping of white liberal Democrats as scare-mongering racists and bigots. A google search revealed not one liberal blog or columnist in the first several result pages criticizing Bernhard for her remarks. I can only conclude that they see nothing out of the ordinary in what she said and wholeheartedly agree with her.

Being rooted in slavery and fertilized by a century of Klansman, there should be little surprise that the Democratic Party remains the home of racism into the 21st Century.

Call him a racist

Let's apply this same standard to all of the out-of-wedlock pregnancies in America's inner cities.
Never in history has a woman been under more pressure to keep an unwanted pregnancy than Bristol Palin. She is the teenage daughter of Alaska Governor & Vice-Presidential hopeful Sarah Palin - a conservative, Creationist Christian power-vampire and pro-life huckster who has put Bristol and her un-welcomed fetus at the center of a politico-religious crusade to stop her exercising her constitutional right to terminate the pregnancy.

Rather than sit back and impotently bemoan Bristol's tragic, lonely circumstance, it is time for us - the silent majority - to unite behind this poor, imprisoned woman and save her from both a tyrannical household as well as the horrible nightmare of a forced childbirth.

These are not empty words. I, Doug Stanhope, am offering you, Bristol Palin, the sum of 25,000 dollars so that you can abort your child and move out of that draconian home. I have also set up a PayPal link so that others around the world can help increase this amount to ease the burden of starting out on your own at such an early age.
Come 0n Doug, spread the wealth, kill them all. Oh. That is the point of your request for donations.

Step back folks, you will not see true evil like this every day.

Eugenics has not gone away, it just has a nicer name: Choice.

Voter registration - Unknown obligations

Van Hollen sued the state Government Accountability Board Wednesday, saying it must crosscheck voter names with driver’s license records for some voters who registered to vote or changed their addresses since Jan. 1, 2006.
If I read this correctly, voters in Wisconsin must be registered at the same address as is on their driver's license (NB - That being the case, doesn't that bogus driver's license argument against Voter ID become moot? But that's another episode). How can that be, when all you need to register to vote is someone to vouch for you?
Proof of residence in the ward is required, such as an official Wisconsin driver's license or identification card with your address. If you do not have written proof, a qualified voter from your municipality can serve as your witness to verify your address.
Where does this driver's license requirement come from? Perhaps the Help America Vote Act of 2002.

I tried to find the Wisconsin Statute on voter eligibility requirements but was unable to use the State's search engine without crashing my browser. I settled on this description from the left wing League of Women Voters website.

Determining Your Legal Residence
You must be a legal resident of the place where you vote. Your legal residence is the fixed place where you live without plans to move. This fixed place is your residence even when you are away (vacation, hospital, etc.) as long as you plan to return. Students with a permanent residence in one community and a temporary residence at school may choose to vote at either place, but not both.

That seems curious to me. You generally cannot make different claims about the same subject to different government entities in order to suit your own purposes.

I had personal experience with this when I worked in Pennsylvania. I received a letter from the PA municipality demanding payment of a school tax. I wrote back telling them that my domicile was in Wisconsin, therefore I did not owe the hundred dollar tax. I never heard from them again.

But this is a two-edged sword. When I filed my state income taxes I could not claim my domicile was in PA, and consequently had to pay thousands more in taxes to Wisconsin.

For tax purposes Wisconsin Department of Revenue Publication 122 defines domicile thusly.
Domicile - Your domicile is your true, fixed, and permanent home where you intend to remain permanently and indefinitely and to which, whenever absent, you intend to return. It is often referred to as “legal residence.” You can be physically present or residing in one state but maintain a domicile in another. You can have only one domicile at any time.

Your domicile, once established, is never changed unless all three of the following occur or exist:
• You specifically intend to abandon your old domicile and take actions consistent with such intent, and
• You intend to acquire a new domicile and take actions consistent with such intent, and
• You are physically present in the new domicile.

Your domicile does not change if:
• You leave your state of domicile for a brief rest or vacation, or
• You leave your state of domicile to complete a particular transaction, perform a particular contract, or fulfill a particular engagement, but you intend to return to your state of domicile whether or not you complete the transaction, contract, or engagement


Example 2: You graduated from high school in Minnesota where you lived with your parents. In August of 2007, you moved to Wisconsin to attend the University of Wisconsin. You do not plan to remain in Wisconsin after you complete your course of study at the university. You do not take any steps to abandon your Minnesota residence or to acquire a new residence in Wisconsin. You are a nonresident of Wisconsin for 2007.
IRS publication 555 provides this further guidance.

You have only one domicile even if you have more than one home. Your domicile is a permanent legal home that you intend to use for an indefinite or unlimited period, and to which, when absent, you intend to return. The question of your domicile is mainly a matter of your intention as indicated by your actions. You must be able to show with facts that you intend a given place or state to be your permanent home. If you move into or out of a community property state during the year, you may or may not have community income.

Factors considered in determining domicile include:

  • Where you pay state income tax,

  • Where you vote,

  • Location of property you own,

  • Your citizenship,

  • Length of residence, and

  • Business and social ties to the community.

What does this mean to the thousands of Illinois and Minnesota youths attending college and voting in Wisconsin? Contrary to my first thoughts on the matter, registering and voting in Wisconsin is legal for these students.

However, by registering to vote in Wisconsin, they have changed their domicile from those other states to Wisconsin. Several obligations come with that, including paying state income taxes to Wisconsin, registering their motor vehicle in Wisconsin, obtaining a Wisconsin driver's license, and being counted by the U.S. Census Bureau as residents of Wisconsin.

I am left with a couple questions.
  • Are Wisconsin voter registration requirements in compliance with FAVA if proof of residence is not required to register to vote in Wisconsin?
  • Can Wisconsin voter registration records be cross checked to find voters who have not filed Wisconsin income tax returns or obtained Wisconsin driver's licenses? There is a revenue source here that needs to be tapped.
The moral of the story: Setting up a voting system in order to facilitate vote fraud can have unintended consequences.

Follow-up on 5 reasons the CC trade is a disaster

The wildcard lead is gone tonight. A good time to reflect on this previous post.

1. Past performance is not indicative of future results. This isn't 2007 for CC Sabathia anymore.
UPDATE: I was dead wrong. CC is better than I could ever imagine.

2. Matt LaPorta will be a perennial All-Star and occasional MVP. Just not for the Brewers.
UPDATE: I was correct. The Brewers pissed away a prospect and will still not be in the playoffs.

3. No lead is safe with this bullpen. Unless he pitches complete games, Sabathia's success is dependent on names like Gagne and Mota.
UPDATE: That "complete game" thing - who would've guessed? But the bullpen has still blown enough leads this year that would have put the Brewers safely in post-season play.

4. Fielder is going, going, gone. And his replacement is playing in Cleveland.
UPDATE: Please go Prince. It can't happen soon enough.

5. These are the Brewers. Small market teams need to play the small market game. Stick with the plan and don't react to perceived circumstances. It is suicide to spend money and trade prospects like you are the Cubs, Yankees or BoSox.
UPDATE: That is the entire point. They went for it all without having the rest of the pieces in place. The team (and the Manager) cannot handle a pennant drive, why even think about the playoffs.

No playoffs in 2008. Therefore the Sabathia trade is a disaster.

More fraud from Madison

Madison - The lawsuit against the state's election authority could lead to a spike in provisional ballots, which an election expert said greatly increases the chances of a fight after Nov. 4 over who won the presidential race in Wisconsin.
Damn right! That's the whole effing point, you dumbass.
Republican Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen sued the state this week to require more checks of voter information against driver's license records - a move that critics say could force people off the voter rolls and require them to cast provisional ballots. Provisional ballots are counted only when voters provide proof of residence by the next day.
We are tired of bending over every four years as the corrupt Doyle political machine repeatably slams those thousands of fraudulent votes in our ... ballot box. If the votes aren't valid the Doyle crooks want them hidden in the ballot box, where they cannot be found and cannot be challenged.

Here is the choice: Convenience for Doyle's fraudsters versus stopping his voter fraud.

Start the cross-checks now. Do not wait for the lawsuit to be ruled. These premeditated delays are no excuse for not getting the job done.

Obama disrespects the FDNY and union steelworkers

Why not just flip them the bird or call them pigs, Barry?

Watch here as this asshole treats his tribute flower like a piece of dirty trash. In contrast, the elderly and disabled McCain lovingly places the flower with respect to the nearly 3,000 victims of September 11, 2001.

The Ultimate Hipster

Obama still has not retracted his mean spirited ad mocking John McCain's war disabilities. Of course the MSM has not paid notice to this. Obama get's every free cheap shot that he wants.

So do I.

They left out the part about Obama's habitual and continuing use of marijuana & cocaine, and dealing heroin.

If Obama wants to look back at 1982, let's look at the real choice in this election: Ronald Reagan's surrogates of McCain/Palin or Jimmy Carter's surrogates of Obama/Biden. That is a no-brainer (no I do not mean that the no-brained Obama & Biden are the right choice).

John McCain will not defend himself against these attacks. It is a matter of his sense of honor, make that Honor. He took that abuse in Hanoi to protect his comrades, he'll take it today.

Step up now, Swiftboat Veterans for Truth.

Team Hillary Strikes Again

Obama cannot possibly be this stupid. Team Hillary must have some moles on the Obama campaign. They are unloading a massive barrage of political sabotage to keep her viable in 2012.

Just Wondering [Jonah Goldberg]

Does anyone know why McCain doesn't use a computer or email? As a couple readers suggested to me, it might be because his injuries prevent it. I mean he can't lift his arms much higher than his chest and it looks like he has all sorts of other mobility problems with them. Maybe he can't type or use something like a blackberry. I don't know. But I hope the Obama campaign found out before they played the granpa Simpson card on McCain. I'd hate for Obama to be mocking a veteran's disability to score cheap points.

Next thing you know his vice presidential pick will be telling guys in wheelchairs to get up.

Smokin' Right - Next Weekend

The most successful voter registration drive ever

The Great Big Radio Brain missed the obvious in his lengthy discussion of this article today.
Madison - A state election official said today a lawsuit by Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen would affect more than 1 million voters, four times as many voters as the Department of Justice had estimated.

Also today, critics accused Van Hollen - a Republican serving as the state co-chair of John McCain's presidential campaign - of filing the suit for partisan gain and trying to purge legitimate voters from poll lists.

Van Hollen sued the state Government Accountability Board Wednesday, saying it must crosscheck voter names with driver's license records for voters who registered to vote or changed their addresses on or after Jan. 1, 2006.

Such checks were required under federal law as of that date, but the board didn't start performing them until last month because of technical problems.
More than one million new voter registrations in less than three years in a state with only 4.25 million adults is beyond belief.

Are we supposed to believe that one-fourth of the adult population of Wisconsin registered to vote for the first time or re-registered after moving since the start of 2006? This happening even after the huge new voter registration drives of the 2000 and 2004 presidential campaigns. No way is that possible. Frankly, I am beyond shocked.

If you examine the population data (do your own math, my source data is here) you'll find that less than 225,000 Wisconsin minors became of voting age since 01/01/2006. And less than 10,000 persons of voting age moved to the state since that date.

Here's your little sanity check, where did the more than 750,000 other new registered voters come from since the end of 2005?

The only answer that makes sense: Voter fraud on perhaps the most massive scale of all time.

Mr. Van Hollen, may we have that RICO investigation now?

With malice aforethought: Lipstick on a pig

"But he didn't say Sarah Palin is a pig."
Sure. Just like this was an accident.

He builds up to these cheap shots. What a STATESMAN!

Lipstick on a pig. Is that like designer clothes on a cow?

He married the manliest woman he could find (Aunt Esther looks feminine by comparison). Little wonder Obama spends so much time at "the gym" ... he likes boys. This is quite understandable considering his whacked-out mother and the rejection he felt from his father and stepfather.

Something aboot Sarah

The Obama Campaign's Spread the Smears website has raised new questions about Republican V.P. candidate Sarah Palin's background.
We just went through a summer-long witch hunt by the Republican attack machine trying to smear Barack Obama. They said Barack's birth certificate is fake and that he is ineligible to become President. Now it is only fair that the press investigate these serious questions about Sarah Palin's place of birth.

So far, no proof has been offered that her parents were U.S. citizens when Sarah Palin was born. They also claim her birth was in Sandpoint, Idaho; conveniently just 50 miles from the Canadian border.

Let's get to the truth of this matter.
Furthering the Obama campaign's concerns are former-Mayor Palin's odd behaviors and speech patterns, which have never before been witnessed within the beltway of Washington or the social circles of New York City. These include.
  • Guns and fishing
  • Sounding Canadian (Ask her to say "About")
  • Consuming moose
  • Five kids by one father
  • Hockey mom pride (Only in Canada, we have soccer mom's in the U.S.)
Spread the Smears concludes.
That is the meat of the matter, former PTA Leader Palin continues to this day to behave like a Canadian, not an American. She cannot be eligible for the Vice Presidency.

Elsewhere, on the stump in Green Bay, Democratic Vice Presidential candidate Joe Biden took an unprecedented shot at the Democratic led House and Senate.
Name me a single issue that affects your life - jobs, health care, education, energy - where you are better today than 2006. If you liked the last two years, you'll like the next four years of a Obama-Biden-Pelosi-Reid controlled government, because there is no change.

Dozens rally in Cedarburg

"(M)ore than a thousand" at the Cedarburg rally? The MSM, or more accurately, the OMP (Obama Ministry of Propaganda) can ignore the facts of Palin's popularity at their own peril.

Here we have a heroine from a small town in Alaska taking on a corrupt Chicago politician. It doesn't take Roger Ebert to figure out who the audience will be pulling for. By allying themselves with Obama's campaign, the press will become less and less relevant by the hour.

A Glass Ceiling does not exist for Sarah Palin

While in that long line in Cedarburg, I saw way too many little girls and young women to count. This crowd was not there for Sen. McCain, I'd guess that over 75% were there for Gov. Palin. The women in my life are thrilled to see a woman advance on her own merits, not her husband's popularity or daddy's political influence.

The broken glass-ceiling is more relevant than the press or Obama will ever imagine. These little girls and young women (and their moms and dads) have been inspired by Gov. Palin and her achievements (Note to Mr. Obama: Achievement, noun, something accomplished). My wife's girlfriends were jealous that we could be in Cedarburg, even her Obama supporting (until Wednesday) non-political friend.

Sarah Palin is very much like someone you know. She has a real life beyond politics and scrambling for political favor. Watch this TV report from 2006 (HT - Belling).

Sarah Palin's Skin

I'm entirely speculating, but this may be part of that fresh, youthful look.

Palin-McCain Rally in Cedarburg

After one hour in line, this is as close as I got to seeing Sarah Palin and her running mate in Cedarburg. Although one block from the speeches, we still had another hour and a half in line with 30 minutes until the candidates spoke. I'm still glad I went.

Sarah Hair

Lauren Beckham Falcone opines that Palin's hair is a disaster.

But must her hair suffer? With her long, straight, often pinned-up locks, Palin looks one humid day away from fronting a Kiss cover band.

“It’s about 20 years out of date,” said Boston stylist Mario Russo of the Alaska governor’s ’do. “Which goes to show how off she might be on current events.”

Frankly, Russo and other homosexual hairdressers have been trying to make women look like men for decades. Mr. Russo, please leave women's hair alone.

I also saw the following on the Althouse blog last week. It inspired me to look for pseudo-Palin hairstyles while in line for the Palin speech.
11:31: Here she is, in a dark, skirted suit. (No pantsuit.) Behind her, a daughter is holding the new baby. Palin is wearing a HUGE, glittering flag pin. She's got that trademark hairdo. (Want to wear that hairdo? I'm going to be looking around on campus to see if any of the young women are wearing their hair in the Palin style. If you see me, let me take your picture!)
Judge yourself if these women are doing their versions of the Sarah-doo. I am a straight male and my opinion is obviously of no value.

After Cedarburg I was on the UW-Milwaukee campus for a short time. While there I saw Sarah hair on two young women. Sorry, no photos.

Who said that?

The MN State Fair closes on the first day of the GOP Convention, 9/1. According to my friend, the Minnesota fair has the best food-on-a-stick of any state fair in the country. This could be a great opening for the Republicans.

Put together a commercial of McCain-Palin chowing on fried Twinkies on-a-stick and everything else that flyover America loves, and contrast that with Obama nibbling on his argula & sprouts.

Poverty Pimp Parody Blog

Too funny. I think the people making comments at the Community Organizers Fight Back Blog think the blog is serious.

Poverty pimps, welfare leeches, community organizers - whatever. Just lipstick on a pig. They won't be missed when their tax sucking jobs are eliminated.

Don Surber found the job duties of a community organizer today. Remember, this is a paid job.
Duties and Responsibilities:
 Will work closely with the lead community organizer to:
o Assess and evaluate community assets and strengths
o Design and develop community participation processes
o Develop and support Neighborhood Action Councils (NAC)
o Assist communities in the implementation of participation processes and leadership development
o Create communication infrastructures ...
Read the rest of the job description and requirements here.

Here's what I said about Obama, the community organizer, in February.
The Girl Scout Leader comparison comes from watching Mrs. Headless serve as a GS Service Unit Manager for several years. When I read the US News & World Report article on Obama, I said to myself, "That's what Mrs. Headless did." Although she worked harder than Barack and was not paid. For those familiar with SDC and the Milwaukee Poverty Pimps, that's the kind of organization that was employing Obama.
I apologize to all current and former Girl Scout volunteers. To compare the work you do to Barack Obama's old job is an insult to you.

In my line of work, most individuals have a resume in the can and ready to be tweaked when the next job opportunity comes along. My resume is nothing great, but contains enough information about my accomplishments for me to have been placed in my last four jobs with nothing more than reference checks and telephone interviews.

A google will find hundreds of sample resumes. They all include this common information just in different order and emphasis.
  • Education
  • Professional Experience
  • Accomplishments
  • References
After seeing this side-by-side comparison of Obama's and Palin's experience some questions are begged. Obama's education and professional experience are very impressive: Columbia & Harvard Law degrees; attorney, college lecturer, State & U.S. Senator. But a check of Obama's accomplishments and references comes up blank, not even his GPA from the two schools. What has he accomplished in the 25 years of his professional career?

Let's look.
  • Law review editor - nope, that goes under experience, not accomplishments.
  • Passing a law to provide a sweetheart deal to Rezko and receiving help with his mortgage in return - not sure that I'd list that.
  • Holding up passage of the Born Alive Infant Protection Act - you gotta go with your strengths.
  • Earmarks for his wife's employer, just in time for her to receive a massive raise - that's not much help.
Okee-doke. Let's check those references.
  • Reverend Jeremiah Wright
  • Bill Ayres
  • Tony Rezko
  • Khalid al-Mansour

Even Obama's acceptance speech, the equivalent of my job interview, was not about him. He recalled his grandfather's patriotism and recited the DNC platform from 1976, but did not give any reason to believe that he can implement this platform or accomplish anything at all.

With these accomplishments and references, it is beyond disturbing that anyone would consider offering Barack Obama any paying job, much less even consider him for the Presidency of the United States.

Is there a Human Resource professional in the house? Have I hit the mark on this?

Open season on candidate's daughters?

Are you sure you want to go there Obama?

I am fully capable of making up nasty shit about your two little girls.
