NY-23 across America?

We'll see.

Bill Hennessy details how Tea Party outdoor marchers are going indoors and organizing a community of conservatives to take our country back, one congressional district and election at a time, beginning in Tuesday's special election in New York's 23rd Congressional district.

And Patrick Ruffini proposes a national strategy: GOP candidates go independent.

Meanwhile, Peggy Noonan identifies a disconnect between us (Americans) and them (our political class).

They don't get it.

A storm is brewing.

Vote Doug Hoffman!

Mark Steyn on "Mao Ze Dunn" conformity

Life is full of irony. Steyn (and Krauthammer) see a point others have missed -- it's not the who of her quote, it's the what:

"Anita Dunn, the [White House] Communications Director commending Mao Zedong as a role model to graduating high school students, would seem an obvious loon. But the point about Mao, as Charles Krauthammer noted, is that he was the most ruthless imposer of mass conformity in modern history: In Mao's China, everyone wore the same clothes. So when Communications Commissar Mao Ze Dunn starts berating Fox News for not getting into the same Maosketeer costumes as the rest of the press corps, you begin to see why the Chairman might appeal to her as a favorite 'political philosopher'."

Read the whole thing. In fact, read Krauthammer's "Fox Wars" column.

White House "pats on the head" for the networks that are not Fox News

Brit Hume opines:

Losing his "cool"

Once praised for his ineffable "cool" quality, Obama is trashed by his hometown paper:

"The White House trying to dictate who's a news organization. Democrats out to gut a business group. Obama media allies damning Americans as racist, unpatriotic and treasonous. Is this the America Obama promised when he campaigned to end the cynical and divisive politics of the past?"

Nope. Read the whole thing.

Obama declares war -- on Fox News

While he's still considering his in-country commander's 78-day old request for increased troops in the "right" war in Afghanistan, the president, through his White House communications director, Anita "I admire Mao Zedong as a political philosopher" Dunn and his chief of staff, Rahm "you never want a serious crisis to go to waste" Emanuel, have declared war instead on Fox News.

Dumb. Fight on, Fox. Still a free country and the First Amendment still applies -- last I checked.

Early Americans carried "Don't Tread On Me" flags. Modern Americans are now doing the same.

If the Obama administration doesn't like Fox, they won't want -- but will still get -- more of this.

UPDATE: Buchanan's right - traditional Americans feel like they are losing their nation.

Obama outsmarted by the Iranians? Whodathunkit!

How's that "smart diplomacy" thingie working out? Secret talks. Personal involvement. Doublecross.


Power Line connects the dots.

In other news, get your Obama Chia -- just in time for Christmas: an Obama Bush -- never thought I'd see that! (Hat tip Abbie Duston).

Krauthammer's three-run homer

Krauthammer hits it out of the park again:

- "Decline is a Choice": Obama, the Democratic majority, and the MSM intend U.S. decline;

- "Young Hamlet's Agony": A zig-zagging "young Hamlet" agonizes over his Afghanistan policy; and

- "Debacle in Moscow": Russia hands the naive administration its head -- and Russian leaders refuse to shake hands with the West's (now-Nobel-laureate) "messiah":


I haven't seen such contempt by foreign leaders for an American president expressed so personally and directly in my lifetime.

So how's that new "give-peace-a-chance-let's-reach-out-to-our-enemies" strategy thingy working out?

Not so much.

Not happy times for our young president.

Obama wins Nobel Peace Prize


An Instapundit reader notes:

“Let’s be fair . . . he did pull off the Beer Summit.”

Wonder if he can win the Heisman?

Obama's French Lesson

Sarkozy scolds Obama at the UN Security Council for the US President's naivete (calling for a nuclear-weapons-free world, when he should be calling for or taking action regarding North Korea's and Iran's current development of nuclear weapons). Krauthammer notes, "When France chides you for appeasement, you know you're scraping bottom." Read the whole thing.
