Notes From The Cuckoo's Nest...

The New Republic:
"The U.N. is a joke. If it weren't in New York no one would come. As an instrument of peace it fails every time. At its best, it is mostly charade, like Ban Ki-moon designating Bill Clinton as the organization's special envoy to Haiti. 'Special envoy,' my foot.

But Susan Rice seems to feel at home at the United Nations. 'Google' her and read any of her nonsense about the organization. Any of it. If you don't laugh you'll cry. Either way your response will be appropriate."

One can only hope he is right...

LocalNet Start Page:
"'There are a group of the world's Jews who had a major influence in the elections who were a serious threat to Egypt taking this position,' he said.

Hosny's candidacy raised an outcry because of a threat he made in the Egyptian parliament last year to personally burn any Israeli book he found in Egypt's famed Library of Alexandria. While he later apologized and Israel said it had withdrawn its opposition to his candidacy, several prominent Jewish activists spoke out against him in the runup to the vote"

Quote of the Day...

"President Obama spoke today at the United Nations — because why should diplomats and world leaders miss out on what Americans get to hear every week?"

Surrendering soverignty everywhere...

The UN loves Barack Obama because he is weak:
"It is not hard to see why a standing ovation awaits the president at Turtle Bay. Obama’s popularity at the UN boils down essentially to his willingness to downplay American global power. He is the first American president who has made an art form out of apologizing for the United States, which he has done on numerous occasions on foreign soil, from Strasbourg to Cairo. The Obama mantra appears to be – ask not what your country can do for you, but what you can do to atone for your country. This is a message that goes down very well in a world that is still seething with anti-Americanism."

En (very) Loco Parentis....

Barack Obama, College Administrator:
"If you are confused by the first nine months of the Obama administration, take solace that there is at least a pattern. The president, you see, thinks America is a university and that he is our campus president. Keep that in mind, and almost everything else makes sense."

But it's OK as long as he's our guy....

The Art of Corruption:
"As an artist, I feel it incumbent upon myself to pause here to become violently ill. Never mind that the phone call may have broken several lobbying laws. Forget that the NEA’s Yosi Sergant is now proven to have lied when he denied the NEA’s role in initiating the call. Let’s not even concern ourselves with the fact that White House official Buffy Wicks directed the artists to channel their efforts through, a White House website with ties to the corrupt Acorn."

Perfectly obvious from the moment Oprah opened her big mouth....

President Barack Obama is beginning to look out of his depth:
"The man who has run nothing more demanding than the Harvard Law Review is beginning to look out of his depth in the world's top job. His credibility is seeping away, and it will require concrete achievements rather than more soaring oratory to recover it."
