Ché Guevara executed 41 years ago today

Today is cause to celebrate.  It is the 41st anniversary of Ché Guevara’s death.

October 9, 1967 was the day that Ché Guevara, the Communist revolutionary, was finally brought to justice in Bolivia.

On this day in 1967, socialist revolutionary and guerilla leader Che Guevara, age 39, is killed by the Bolivian army. The U.S.-military-backed Bolivian forces captured Guevara on October 8 while battling his band of guerillas in Bolivia and assassinated him the following day. His hands were cut off as proof of death and his body was buried in an unmarked grave… (read more)

Video is available at the link.

Is it ironic that we are seeing so many “socialist” aspects in America today?  We don’t need a Ché here.  But, have been seeing the emergence of one in the presidential campaign?

Blatant Obama bias from CNN? You don’t say?!

Well, knock me over with a feather!  Who would’ve thunk that CNN, that bastion of unbiased journalism, would have taken sides in the ’08 presidential race?  /sarcasm off

You know, Soledad O’Bamarien “rigging a post-debate poll result right in front of your eyes” is pretty darned blatant, even for the MSM. 

As Glenn Reynolds notes, “It was in the script — the show of hands was irrelevant.”

Check out the still-frames of the video over at HotAir and count for yourself.  It really puts it into perspective, when you can take the time to really look at how many hands are up, when each option is asked.  Maybe Soledad needs something like that too, because real life moves too fast for her?

Okay.  Like AllahP notes, “Apparently there were 32 people in the group, meaning at least a few are out of frame. Maybe they all broke blue?”

As the Creative Minority Report says, “Hey, how about a roll call, Soledad? Now to my eye, it looks pretty evenly split. I counted 12 for Biden and 11 for Palin. But take a look for yourself.”

Megan McArdle doesn’t seem to appreciate the impression that Soledad’s pathetic counting leaves with viewers.  😆

I’m sure Michelle O. is not “dissatisfied” with Soledad’s and the rest of the MSM’s efforts for The One‘s campaign. 

Let’s face it.  Sarah Palin just performed too well for the MSM’s liking last week AND she is taking their candidate to task over his relationship with an unrepentant domestic terrorist (Now, Obama claims ignorance), won’t apologize for it, and they are going to do their part to tear her down.  Crowds on the campaign trail want her to “tell people about the real Barack Obama,” even in California

Remember, the Associated Press started crying about “racism” over the domestic terrorist connection comments. By the way, the AP continues to run interference for Obama on other issues too.

This isn’t the first or the last we will see out of the MSM carrying water for the DNC and Obama this election cycle.  We already knew going into the only VP debate that the moderator was in the tank for Obama.  And, remember Chris Matthews calling Sarah Palin “a dolt?” 

Well, now, Harry Smith of The Early Show isn’t pleased either and feels compelled to wag his finger at the McCain/Palin campaign.  Keith Olbermann even injects his P.D.S. into football commentary.  Oh.  Don’t worry.  It’s not just football.  It’s in baseball too

Barbara Walters, the washed up MS hack and now-host of The View, had to inject her cheap shot today by referring to Gov. Palin and her baby, Trig, who Walters says “bothered her” by being present at the debate last week.  Liz Trotta felt compelled to dehumanize Trig by calling him “it” on FNC on Sunday.  🙄

Evan Thomas of Newsweek is doing his part too.  Jon Meacham of Newsweek intimates that Palin is “too much a commoner and too stupid to be allowed to become vice president of the United States of America.”  Check out the Oct. 13th cover:

NewsBusters.org

Source: NewsBusters.org

“She’s one of the folks (And that’s the problem)?”  Yes.  Heaven forbid that we actually have someone in office to whom we can relate.  Perish the thought!  🙄

Check out the Oct. 13th coverstory of Newsweek.

Let’s just call the MSM what they really are – tools.  You decide which kind they are.  😉

Maybe Dr. Helen could help them out with their P.D.S.?

Preach on, SarahCuda! [UPDATED]

  

UPDATE:  I don’t think Sarah Palin is too worried about their smears.  She says the “Associated Press is wrong.”  That’s the way she sees it.  😉

Palin’s giving it back to them by defending her comment.  That won’t stop the MSM from trying to come to the rescue of The One.  Of course, the MSM is not quite as bizarre in their antics as the British media is about Palin.

Oh!  And, did you hear that Gwen Ifill thinks Palin “blew her off” at the debate?  Yep.  Here’s the full transcript from the Meet the Press segment, where she whined about that.  How long before she breaks her card out again?

See?  This is what you get, when you best their candidates in a debate, Gov. Palin.  Keep it up!  🙂

* * *

UPDATE:  Well Obama’s water-carriers in the Associated Press are not happy with Gov. Sarah Palin taking Barack Obama to task over the William Ayers relationship or something, after they finally figured out there was a connection between Obama and Ayers.  I guess the AP couldn’t have the NYT and CNN carrying all the water on that issue, as noted earlier in this thread yesterday, huh?   Are they toting his card for him too?  😉

H/T to Michelle Malkin

The debate – where she cleaned house, even with the liberal double-standards, as well as Biden’s (that would beJoe Depot” to you) license with facts and reality – is over and Sarah Palin is wasting no time settling into the standard VP candidate’s role of attack dog for the campaign.  For one, she takes Obama to task on accusing our men and women of “just air raiding villages and killing civilians.”

Speaking to Fox News on Friday, Sarah Palin indicated for the first time that she does not consider Barack Obama qualified to be commander in chief and sharply criticized him for saying last year that U.S. troops in Afghanistan are “just air raiding villages and killing civilians.”

Calling Obama “reckless,” Palin said that where she comes from Obama’s remarks “disqualify someone from consideration for the next commander-in-chief.”

“Some of his comments that he’s made about the war, that I think, in my world disqualify someone from consideration for the next commander-in-chief,” said Palin. “Some of the comments he’s made about Afghanistan, what we are doing there, ‘just air raiding villages and killing civilians.’ That’s reckless.”…  (read more)

Remember when Obama said that in August 2007?  I bet Obama/Biden hope you don’t.  But, as luck would have it, it was preserved for posterity in video on YouTube.  😉

He just accused the men and women of our armed forces of war crimes.  Did you catch that?  Here, just in case it helps to see it in written form:

We’ve gotta get the job done there,and that requires us to have enough troops so that we’re not just air raiding villages and killing civilians, which is causing enormous problems there.

That is something Americans should not forget anytime soon.  Barack Obama wants to be Commander-in-Chief of our armed forces and he has accused them and our NATO allies of war crimes in one of our fronts in the War on Terror.

She’s aldo taking Obama to task on “palling around with terrorists,” while she was in Colorado.

Sarah Palin, using some of her strongest language to date to question the character of the Democratic presidential nominee, accused Barack Obama on Saturday of “palling around with terrorists.” 

Palin, speaking at a closed fundraiser in Colorado, was referencing Obama’s ties to Bill Ayers, a founder of the 1960s radical group The Weather Underground. That relationship was examined in a front-page article in The New York Times on Saturday. 

“This is not a man who sees America as you see America, and as I see America,” Palin said. “Our opponent, though, is someone who sees America, it seems, as being so imperfect — imperfect enough that he’s palling around with terrorists who would target their own country. Americans need to know this. … I think, OK we gotta get the word out. This is in fairness to the electorate we gotta start telling people what the other side represents.”

You can trust the New York Times to try and whitewash the whole Ayers connection to Obama.  Would you expect anything less from the national fishwrap of record?  But, wait!  CNN is doing their part to whitewash it too, including citing National Review to debunk Palin. 

Right about now, I think the last thing Obama/Biden wants to do is “bless her heart.”  Don’t you? 

Oh and, by the way, “Bubette,” Deb.  Come on.  Don’t compare the SarahCuda to Slick Willy. *blech*

Oh!  By the way, Ace of Spades is live with the Palin tour in Carson, CA.  Make sure and check out Ace’s dispatches from the road with Gov. Palin.  He’s updating regularly.

By the way, did you know that William Ayers is using cartoons to spread his ideas?  No joke.  The Judicial Confirmation Network has an ad out about Obama’s relationship Ayers, as well as Tony Rezko and Jeramiah Wright.

Don’t forget about Obama’s other buddies, Larry Walsh, the county executive in Will County, and Rob Blagojevich, the Illinois Governor. 

Are we about to see “a can of whoop-ass” being opened up on Obama/Biden by the McCain/Palin campaign?  It looks like we might, according to Jake Tapper.

So, what else might we see in the weeks ahead from the McCain/Palin campaign.

That’s not the Larry Walsh that Barack Obama knew, right?

 
UPDATE:  It turns out that the FBI may not have raided Larry Walsh’s office in Will County, IL, as previously reported.  Walsh and his staff deny any raid by the feds but do acknowledge that they met with the county auditor, as reported. 
 

A Will County, Ill., county executive and his chief of staff dismissed an FBI probe linked to their office in local press reports as political chicanery on Friday and insisted they had not been contacted by the federal bureau.

“We do know they came down to talk to [county auditor] Steve Weber,” Matt Ryan, chief of staff to Will County Executive Larry Walsh, said of the FBI’s visit to the county office building onWednesday…

 
The original article in the Washington Times has already been amended from the way it appeared on Friday.  But, the Times, along with the Chigaco Tribune still leave the likelihood of an FBI investigation well in play.  There appears to be no further update in the Tribune from the Wednesday article.

Larry Walsh with Barack Obama

Larry Walsh with Barack Obama

Uh, oh!  Another one of Barack Obama’s buddies, Larry Walsh, had his office raided by the FBI, after they met with the county auditor the other day. 

WJBC.com

Gov. Rob Blagojevich (Source: WJBC.com)

It was Rod Blagojevich, the Illinois governor, the other day.  More over at Fort Hard Knox on Blagojevich. 

Now, it’s Larry Walsh, the Will County Executive and former-state senator.  Does Walsh have Obama to thank for all the attention from his own earmark disclosures?

  • In 2006, Obama requested that Will County receive $1.3 million to support its Flood Studies for Unincorporated Will County.
  • In 2006, Obama requested $800,000 for the Will County Sheriff’s Office Wireless Communications Technology Upgrades.
  • In 2006, Obama requested $1,953,331 for Will County’s Ridgewood Water and Sewage Project.
  • In 2005, Obama requested $2 million for the Lewis University in Romeoville, Illinois, to establish a Center for Academic and Community Learning, which is designed to address the significant educational needs of the less advantaged in the Will County region by providing academic assistance not only for students on campus but also for residents of the surrounding communities.
  • Another reference appears to relate to the Will County Health Department’s mental health program which I am informed got another $1.95 million.
  • Ahhhhh, yes.  The Chicago way.  I wonder when Larry Walsh will be added to the video, perhaps right after Blagojevich. 

    Change should start at home, Sen. Obama.

    An American Carol premieres today. Do you have your tickets?

    “Laugh like your country depends on it!”

     

    UPDATE:  It looks like Baracuda Babes for Palin has beat me to the theatre to see An American Carol.   We are still planning to get to the threatre.  I heard it came in 9th for box office draw on its opening weekend.

    * * *

    An American Carol, starring Kevin Farley, brother of the late Chris Farley, makes its debut today.  For those that are fans of The O’Reilly Factor, Bill O’Reilly makes a cameo appearance in the movie.  He joins other characters i slapping Farley’s character around in, of all places, a port-a-john.  O’Reilly had a clip of it that I remembered seeing on his show one night, as I was checking a little bit of news.  😆

    David Zucker was on Hannity & Colmes in an interview with Sean Hannity promoting the upcoming release.  FNC also has a write-up on the movie that you can read.   

    I love the content warning for the movie!  😆

    WARNING! This movie may be offensive to children, young people, old people, in-the-middle people, some people on the right, all people on the left, terrorists, pacifists, war-mongers, fish mongers, Christians, Jews, Muslims, atheists, agnostics (though you’d have to prove it to them), the ACLU, liberals, conservatives, neo-cons, ex-cons, future cons, Republicans, Democrats, Libertarian, people of color, people of no color, English speakers, English-as-a-second language speakers, non-speakers, men, women, more women, & Ivy League professors. Native Americans should be okay.

    I think it is a “must-see for me” too.  Check out the trailer for yourself, if you haven’t seen it already.

    Yes.  It’s a conservative movie out of Hollyweird.  You don’t see many of them.  So, you had better get your tickets now!

    Will Michael Moore enjoy the parody of his antics?  Take the poll and register your opinion.  😆

    More over at HotAir.  Do you have your tickets yet?  What are you waiting for?

    Another liberal double-standard. Surprise!

    Okay.  So, which is it?  Chris Matthews says

    You know what I think of people when they come on “Hardball,” and they look at the camera, I think they’re dolts.

    Don’t believe that quote?  Here’s the audio.  I think Roger Simon from Politico and I watched the same 2008 Vice-Presidential Debate held at Washington University. 

    ROGER SIMON, POLITICO: When she faced the audience, she always looked directly into the camera, always directly at America. Joe Biden was turned for most of it.

    CHRIS MATTHEWS: He was looking at Gwen.

    SIMON: At Gwen Ifill, exactly! Which came across better?

    MATTHEWS: Well apparently according to all the polling, talking to, answering the questions of the moderator, not ignoring those questions, not doing what every, every first year candidate does is go right to the camera. You know what I think of people when they come on “Hardball,” and they look at the camera, I think they’re dolts. I think that’s the one thing people don’t like, because when you’re looking at me right now, that’s real. You’re looking at me that’s real. You start looking in the camera right now and answer my question and see how you look. Okay just see how you look.

    I’m not sure which debate Chris Matthews watched.  Does anyone know if Tina Fey and SNL were doing a spoof last night to which Matthews might have tuned his television?  😉

    But, what about Barack Obama having looked into the camera so much at the first presidential debate at Ole Miss?  Did Chris Matthews have a problem with that?  Nope.  I didn’t hear a word out of him.  But, his friends at the NYT praised Obama for it

    The differences were in no small part stylistic and visible with a glance to the stage: a 47-year-old black man who has been in the Senate for nearly four years standing at one lectern, facing a 72-year-old white-haired fixture of the Senate standing across from him. In many ways, Mr. Obama was a very different candidate than he was during the primary battles. He answered questions directly and affirmatively, typically looking right into the camera as he spoke.

    Chris Matthew and Barack Obama…dolts?!  Okay.  😉

    Bottom line…

    Sarah Palin cleaned house last night as she rocked Washington University in St. Louis.

    Palin does more than hold her own. She cleaned house tonight.

    The Drudge Report

    Palin: “Bingo!

    Almost 3/4 of the folks in Drudge’s poll think Palin won.

    Greta Van Susteren is singing Palin’s praises. 😯

    Frank Luntz’s focus group went overwhelmingly for Palin following the debate.

    Commenters/viewers over at Michelle Malkin‘s blog saw it as a Palin event throughout the night.

    And, I agree with all of them. 

    Biden’s up. Can he not bash Bush in the next 90 seconds.

    He’s tiiiiiiired. Gravel-voiced. Deflated.

    But his forehead is really smooth.

    Biden ends with a “God bless America” and a “God bless the troops” — the kind of thing the Christian-bashers would flog Sarah over.

    Bottom line:

    Sarah rocks. Biden’s tired.

    Palin rocked tonight! 

    First, I would like to see all the Sarah doubters and detractors in the Beltway/Manhattan corridor eat their words.

    Eat them.

    Sarah Palin is the real deal. Five weeks on the campaign trail, thrust onto the national stage, she rocked tonight’s debate.

    Preach it, Michelle!  Sarah-cuda!  No need for “drunkblogging” tonight.  😉

    Fred Thompson is on FNC now with Chris Wallace.  He is laying out how she rocked the night too and how Joe Biden blew it.

    Take the Insta-Poll and tell us who you think won.  87% for Palin, when I cast my vote.

    Oh, geez!  Claire McCaskill on with Chris Wallace now.  She’s upset because Palin wouldn’t stick to Ifill’s script.  *sniff*

    Was Gwen Ifill tipping her hand? (UPDATED)

    Fox News Channel

    Source: Fox News Channel

     

    UPDATED:  “Do you trust the objectivity of Gwen ifill?”  Well, she’s been cleared, you know?  😉

    * * *

    UPDATED:  “Getting an Ifill of Bias?”  😉

    * * *

    UPDATED:  IowaHawk is reporting that Ifill has been cleared of having committed any wrong.  IowaHawk just forgot to mention that Chris Matthews’ leg occupies its own place on the commission.  😉

    On a more serious note, Michelle Malkin has written the Obudsman at PBS to get their take on Ifill’s obvious finanacial and idealogical conflict of interest in tonight’s debate.  I can’t wait to read their response.

    Liz Cox Barrett at the Columbia Journalism Review gives us her analysis of Ifill moderating the debate, given everything that we now know.  Oh.  And, no, Ifill does not plan on stepping down from her position as moderator tonight, as Liz’s update indicates.

    * * *

    Interesting.  Jim Meyers points out a discussion hosted by Ifill on PBS’s Washington Week on 9/5/08:

    Ifill tipped her hand when she hosted a discussion on PBS’ “Washington Week” on Sept. 5, after the close of the Republican convention that nominated Palin.

    Ifill showed a video showing Palin saying, “Here’s a little news flash for those reporters and commentators: I’m not going to Washington to seek their good opinion, I’m going to Washington to serve the people of this great country.”

    Ifill sniped: “Wow, was she talking about us, or just changing the subject?”

    She was talking about you and your biased commrades in the MSM, the ones that print only what suits their agenda, Gwen.  I hope that helps.

    Jim notes something else said by Ifill in that discussion:

    Later Ifill said about Palin: “Lots of talk about, what, gutting caribou or whatever — I shouldn’t say it this way — gutting caribou in Alaska, which I’m sure is a fine, fine thing to do.” That drew laughter from the audience. “What I’m just saying, we heard a lot more about what Sarah Palin did for sport or what she did as a mother or what she did — than what she did as a governor actually, the actual policy decisions.”

    Ifill also raised this point: “This is a weird question, but what don’t we know about Sarah Palin?”

    Okay.  I could joke about us knowing more “about Sarah Palin” than the Commission on Presidential Debates knew about your pro-Obama book.  But, I shouldn’t.  ‘Cause, Gwen’s like “a real, live journalistor something.  One must remain tolerant, no?  We wouldn’t want to give the impression that she’s a “hack” or something.  😉

    It is so hard to keep up with all of these people that are in the tank or in the bag or whatever it is these days.  Gwen Ifill wants more on “policy decisions” and her “brilliant baby cousin“, Sherrilyn Ifill, wants Gov. Palin to relate more to the “average working mom.”  Which is it, ladies?  You can’t even come to a concensus in your own family. 

    Like Jim Geraghty, I just don’t anticipate much scrutiny of Joe Biden in the VP debate tonight by Gwen ifill.  What are the chances that she will ask Joe if he really knows when FDR was president?  Slim to none, I would say. 😉

    Joe Biden honestly believes that the decision in Roe vs. Wade is “as close to a consensus that can exist in a society as heterogeneous as ours.”

    Were Ifill not on the take, a decent question would be, “Senator Biden, are you really completely unaware of the raging abortion debate in this country for the past thirty-five years? If this is “consensus,” what would “division” look like? By your standards, did this nation have a “mild disagreement” over secession from 1861 to 1865?”

    Support for Roe v. Wade has ranged from 62 to 49 percent since 1973; opposition has ranged from 28 to 48 percent. One third of Democrats oppose it.

    Rob Huddleston shows us something about his favorite VP debate in recent times.  Feel free to join Rob in watching and yelling, about “the fix” in the debate tonight.  Even if they do have a debate watching party in my county, I will probably still watch it at home.  There’s no line at the bathroom.  😉

    Bias? What bias? That? That’s not bias.

    H/T to Michelle Malkin.

    Just because the Boston Globe is pushing Barack Obama handbags for $46.80 in their online stores, when they don’t have a similar items for John McCain, doesn’t make them biased, right?  What?  It’s not like there is an expectation to give equal time and representation or something.  Is there? 

    Of course, this is the same paper that spreads lies about Sarah Palin and then refuses to retract their stories, when facts prove their assertions wrong.  They’re in the tank…errrr…the bag for Obama too, it would appear.
