Figuring it's a good idea to keep an eye on the Democrats, I got myself on a mailing list of the Democratic National Committee. So now I get regular email updates about those dastardly Republicans who are trying to defeat ObamaCare. Here's their latest appeal for money:

Bob --

Right now, Sarah Palin is on a highly publicized, nationwide book tour, attacking President Obama and his plan for health reform at every turn.

It's dangerous. Remember, this is the person who coined the term "Death Panels" -- and opened the flood gates for months of false attacks by special interests and partisan extremists.

Whatever lie comes next will be widely covered by the media, then constantly echoed by right-wing attack groups and others who are trying to defeat reform.

As we approach the final sprint on health reform, we can't afford more deception and delay. We need to be ready for anything -- and have the resources to respond with ads, events, and calls to Congress when the attacks come.

So we're setting a big goal: $500,000 in the next week to help push back against Sarah Palin and her allies. Please chip in $5 or more to help reach our goal.

Golly! So now it seems Sarah Palin (by promoting her best-selling book about her life in Alaska -- having Iditarod racing dogs named after her, etc.) is engaged in a right-wing attack on the Glorious Leader. Who knew?

As it happens, Joyce is currently reading Sarah Palin's book "Going Rogue" and whenever she comes to a funny or touching passage, she shares it. My sweetheart promises I'll be able actually hold the book as soon as she's done, but for now I have to be content with the tidbits that she excerpts for me. Anyway, if the sampling I've heard so far is any indication, Sarah Palin's tome is hardly a "dangerous" weapon being wielded by the Republican attack machine.

So why is the DNC suddenly so given to hyperbole? My guess: "projection". Those who can't face the evil of their own motives are psychologically compelled to project that evil on others. The DNC's paranoid belief that Sarah Palin is promoting her autobiography because she hates the Glorious Leader is a pretty good clue what motivates their personal attacks on Sarah Palin and her family.

"Dharkan Abhaljum" Writes...

I just received an email (tagged with a "Suspected Spam" warning from the company's email administrator).

This suspect email begins:

Dear Sir or Madam,
We regret if this letter brings to you trouble, But this dispatch has only the kind purposes. ...

"Suspected Spam," you caution? You think?

(Golly, maybe I shouldn't have clicked on that embedded link.)

Now That's Smooth

Joyce: So how did you like your smoothie?

Bob: It was ... um ... okay. Why do you ask?

Joyce: No reason. So how did you like it?

Bob: It was ... good. What did you put in it?

Joyce: It's good for you ... and you liked it, didn't you?

Bob: It was okay. So in what way was it good for me?

Joyce: It's good for your digestion. And you liked it, didn't you?

Bob: It was okay. So what was in it?

Joyce: Frozen orange juice.

Bob: Orange juice ... aaaaand ... ?

Joyce: Things that are good for you.

Bob: Such as ... ?

Joyce: Just stuff.

Glottal Opera

Joyce just showed me this from Neat-o-rama.

I have just one question: "Who thinks to try this sort of thing?"

I Shouldn't Ask, But ...

Isn't it time we stopped denying the obvious? When was the last time we heard news reports of radical Baptists opened fire on innocent civilians? And where are all those Roman Catholic terrorists hiding? Rampaging Lutherans? Marauding Methodists? Episcopalian Jihadis?

So why are we never surprised to learn that the latest atrocity was carried out by a devout Muslim? Is there perhaps a difference between Christianity and Islam? Is the God who lays down His life to ransom sinful mankind from slavery to sin maybe a little different than the God who commands His slaves to commit mass murder against those who don't bow to Him five times a day?

Here's the video of Major Nidal Malik Hasan buying his morning cup of coffee just six hours before he attacked his fellow soldiers.

Tell me, is this a person who will suddenly snap a mere six hours later? Or someone who has just finished loading his 50+ rounds into several magazines and is now proceeding with his normal morning routine? It seems to me, this guy isn't someone who needs to be committed -- he's already committed. And just six hours after buying his usual cup-o-joe, he'll demonstrate just how committed he really is.

Isn't it time we faced the fact that it's Islam itself (not just a lunatic fringe group or two) that's at war with Western Civilization?
