There are a few things to notice here. For one, there are zero No Opinions. In other words, Obama has been very polarizing.

Second, the Total Approval group is now comprised only of those who were Strong Approvers at the beginning, which means ALL of the No Opinions and Approves are now in the Disapprove and Strongly Disapprove groups, which gives the lie to the whole racism thing.

Unless, of course, you are so stupid that you believe those people only noticed Obama’s skin color AFTER the $160 million dollar Inauguration of the First Black President hoopla, in which case, I’m guessing you’re still in the Strongly Approve category and think MSNBC started to go downhill when they canned Keith Olbermann.

When he realized ten thousand was way wrong, he blamed it on fatigue and of course the Left let that pass. So would I for that matter if they weren’t so absurdly harsh to our candidates even when they are correct.

Palin got lambasted as a bubble brain for a joke Tina Fey made in an SNL sketch, then again recently for correctly saying Paul Revere warned the British, which he did.

And remember when she told a Tea Party group to wait until after the midterm election results were in before partying like it’s 1773? Cue Big Leftist Eye Rolling for her alleged stupidity in not knowing that the Declaration was signed in 1776.

Except she was not referring to the Declaration. She was referring to the Boston Tea Party. Which happened in 1773.

Jan 2007: Swine intervention in Texas

This video has been making the rounds of email lately, maybe because it’s so outrageous, funny and Ground Zero Mosquey relevant. I have been unable to find an update on the situation. If anyone can find out what’s happened in this, PLEASE post it!

In my liberal (aka, stupid) days, I’d have been very uncomfortable cheering on an in-your-face redneck, but damn … this whole thing stinks to high heaven. And I don’t mean of pig poop!

I think these Muslims were doing the same thing in Texas that they’re doing at Ground Zero … deliberately being confrontational with Christian Americans in order to get legal precedents in place that allow them to take over our way of life.

It’s working elsewhere and, if Obama has his way, it’ll work here. To which I say … hell no!

So score one for me embracing yet another aspect of my Right Wingnuttiness. I want to put 5 bucks on Pig #4.

When Democrats are in charge, government spending rises.

When Republicans are in charge, government spending drops.

I made individual graphics about each of these sessions of Congress that are available in my Civics Lessons album.
