Why weren't Cynthia McKinney and her fellow peace activists trying to get help to Israel while Hamas was sending hundreds of rockets into Israel?
Why did they only suddenly care when Israel had enough and decided to respond to the attacks against their citizens?

"Obama asked Emanuel to tell the governor that he would support Rep. Jan Schakowsky,"
That sounds like communicating a preference to Blago to me. I said it before, I'll say it again, LIAR.
I've said all along that I believed Obama didn't do anything wrong here, but he and his team lied their fannies off trying to take political cover. The fact that they lied is proven here, but no one will hold them accountable for those lies as usual.
Truth from the start is what the American people expect.
Now Jay can come along and explain how that lie wasn't really a lie and I am trying to intentionally smear Barack Hussein Obama. (Is it ok to use his middle name now?)

Gorebal warming is a proven fact – whether it be by a consensus or a handful of scientists – and we need to stop it.
Think of the past:
Tambora – ah yes, 1815 not very long after the start of the devil-spawned internal combustion engine, Tambora decided that it didn’t need a peak anymore. So it spewed so much ash and crap (technical term) into the air that it blotted out the sun and the world didn’t get an actual summer in 1816.
Yellowstone – yes, growing up I thought that Yogi lived here when in reality, he lives in countless “Jellystone” campsites across the country. These days, I know that Yellowstone is actually a caldera. Hmm…wonder what I need to recycle to not have that erupt. I mean, it erupts roughly every 600,000 years so we should be ok for a while. Wait, what? The LAST eruption was 630,000 years ago? Oh, crap, better get to cleaning the Pepsi cans off the land in a hurry!
Earthquakes: Pick one. – Java (the one most remember with ensuing tsunamis across the globe), Sumatra (with aftershocks o'plenty), Kashmir (74,500+ dead) or Chile (reshaping the country).
All terrible, terrible events but all I can think is “Boy, if only they’d worried about their carbon footprint more, all of these things could have been avoided. I wish Algore would fly to these places in his private jet and teach these rubes the value of carbon credits.” But, alas, he is far too busy traveling to places with 4-star hotels and running water.
So you see, folks, it IS us that are destroying our earth and bringing destruction to the world with our evil American-made SUV’s.
Oh my God!
I wonder how many of those evil American SUV’s are running around Cumbre Vieja?!!?
Ok, so because of technical issues, it printed before I got to make my point.
All of the gorebal warming Nazis are selling fear.
Fear that will cost you actual money simply to exist the way you want.
All of the instances above are not fear. They are not “we only have a few years to reverse the process and it will cost (blank) amount of dollars to fix.”
All of these instances are a matter of WHEN they will happen not IF they will happen.
And its not costing anyone a damn dime to help prevent.
Ever wonder why that is?
There’s no money in fact.
There is only money in fear and speculation.

I love it.
You ever want to get a heated debate going, talk gorebal warming...
Seeing as how its so close to the end of 2008 and all, and in an effort to not let my participles left dangling, Jay (or anyone else, really), please show me how the Northern ice cap completely melted this year so that I apologize in front of everyone for being a non-believer.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – U.S. President-elect Barack Obama failed to give a straight answer when asked on a U.S. talkshow on Sunday whether he had managed to quit smoking.
In a country where cigarettes are responsible for one in five deaths and smoking costs tens of billions of dollars in health care, Obama has been under pressure to set an example by giving up his reported two-decade-old habit.
Appearing on NBC's "Meet the Press" program, interviewer Tom Brokaw told Obama he had ducked answering the question during an interview last month with ABC's Barbara Walters.
Noting that the White House was a no-smoking zone, Brokaw asked Obama, "Have you stopped smoking?"
"I have," Obama replied, smiling broadly. "What I said was that there are times where I have fallen off the wagon."
"Wait a minute," Brokaw interjected, "that means you haven't stopped."
"Fair enough," Obama said. "What I would say is that I have done a terrific job under the circumstances of making myself much healthier. You will not see any violations of these rules in the White House."
I guess it never occurred to Mr. Brokaw that if Emperor Obama wants to set a new rule at the White House he will have the power to do so. Can you imagine Emperor Obama out in back by the loading dock sucking down a quick cig while trying to duck the photogs (and Michelle)? I can.
Additionally, if it is so outrageous, Mr. Brokaw should go do an expose' on Congressional smoking habits. You know, let the people know about how smoking is allowed in no other government buildings other than Congressional offices. After all Congress always give immunity to themselves of the nanny-state laws they pass.
One more thing...
What is it about Emperor Obama that he can't give a simple answer to a simple question? "I have done a terrific job under the circumstances of making myself much healthier." What the ^T$&*@!)! is that?

This, however, seems to be the tactic of our new fearless leader.
To me this seems like the actions of a man who’s never been in a situation where he needs to make the final decision that will affect the majority and is trying to incorporate as many ideas of the masses as he can. While this sounds noble in theory, it is foolish in practice and can lead to a disaster. To paraphrase a former president: “You can’t make all of the people happy all of the time.”
Tell me, how did the focus groups of the Clintons work out for everyone?
For those of you who think this is a great idea, consider your 5 closest friends. Do you truly agree on all the details of the functions of the healthcare system?
Some people are going to be disappointed, try to create a further division between factions is moronic at best.
YOU are the leader.
That’s why you were elected.
Not to say “well, it wasn’t my idea anyway” when/if it doesn’t pass congress.
Was this the hope or change part of the program, Barack?
Getting everyone else to do your job is neither.

As an educator, I am often taken aback by the examples of poor parenting I witness. That said, I am looking to compile some of these ideas and address them from an educator's perspective. It is my hope that these opinions can be assembled into some sort of book.
Please give some examples you've seen of crappy parenting in action. I'd rather not clog up Fred's wonderful blog with these comments, you may email me directly at:

Firefighters from the Chestnut Hill Avenue station put out an oven fire at Kathy Woods-Georgopoulos' apartment on Thursday, but not before the turkey was charred along with most of the kitchen.
But they returned later with turkey, stuffing and eight pies.
Firefighter Marco Molina told the Boston Herald that sharing their meal seemed like "the right thing to do."
Woods-Georgopoulos said she cried when the firefighters brought the meal, and cried the next day when she thought about it. She called it a "selfless" act, and said her family plans to do something nice to return the favor.
