"They promised and they did not deliver." Ya, gotta love it.

The 21st member of The Duggar family will be born around New Years Day. Baby number 18 will join its 7 sisters and 10 brothers. There are two sets of twins.
The family lives in a 7,000 square foot home in Arkansas. They are currently shooting a reality series for Discovery Health.
Michelle's husband, Jim Bob, said, "Our goal is for each one of our children to be best friends, and everybody working together to serve each other makes that happen."Amazing.
Amongst many other grievances he's a wife-beater too:
"Another public spectacle"? Nah, only Republicans gave to worry about that, even if they're small-time like Vito Fossella.
CONCORD, N.H.—Former congressional candidate Gary Dodds, who was arrested this week for allegedly violating his bail conditions, will be released from jail but subject to 45 days of electronic monitoring while he appeals his conviction stemming from a crash two years ago.
Dodds was convicted in February of falsifying evidence, creating a false public alarm and leaving the scene of an April 2006 crash that prosecutors allege he staged to boost his faltering campaign. He was sentenced to 20 days in jail and a year of home confinement but was out on bail when he was arrested Tuesday morning after his wife reported that he had been acting irrationally, moved out of their Rye home and thrown her to the floor during an argument.
A hearing was scheduled for Thursday to set new bail conditions, but an agreement was reached Wednesday, said defense lawyer J.P. Nadeau.
"It was negotiated. His main concern was for his wife and his children and himself not to have to go through another public spectacle," Nadeau said.

The latest BS coming from the Hillary camp and their trolls is that Obama can't win the working-class white vote in the coming election vs. John McCain. Nevermind the very uncool fact that many white Hillary supporters won't vote for Barack out of spite and/or race alone. Nevermind the fact that Hillary is so desperate to legitimize her staying staying in the race that she'll come up with an excuse at this point. Nevermind that as recent as 1995, rich, liberal, elitist Hillary Rodham Clinton made it all too clear that she didn't give a flying f-ck about working class whites:
She's proven time and time again that she'll say or do anything to win. If I were Barack, despite what the media thinks, I wouldn't be counting my chickens just yet.
During the past week, Sen. Hillary Clinton has presented herself as a working class populist, the politician in touch with small town sentiments, compared to the elitism of her opponent, Sen. Barack Obama.
But a telling anecdote from her husband's administration shows Hillary Clinton's attitudes about the "lunch-bucket Democrats" are not exactly pristine.
In January 1995, as the Clintons were licking their wounds from the 1994 congressional elections, a debate emerged at a retreat at Camp David. Should the administration make overtures to working class white southerners who had all but forsaken the Democratic Party? The then-first lady took a less than inclusive approach.
"Screw 'em," she told her husband. "You don't owe them a thing, Bill. They're doing nothing for you; you don't have to do anything for them."
The statement -- which author Benjamin Barber witnessed and wrote about in his book, "The Truth of Power: Intellectual Affairs in the Clinton White House" -- was prompted by another speaker raising the difficulties of reaching "Reagan Democrats." It stands in stark contrast to the attitude the New York Democrat has recently taken on the campaign trail, in which she has presented herself as the one candidate who understands the working-class needs.
"When you take a couple of steps back, you realize the astonishing success of [Obama's] movement. In the last month, every brutal guilt-by-association smear has been thrown at him and the Clintons have been reduced to hoping that Rush Limbaugh will turn out their voters. [...] He has somehow endured and survived and in North Carolina has won what looks like a stunning margin of victory. And when you look at the states that Clinton is, er, clinging to: Obama has gained among her demographic base from Ohio to Pennsylvania to Indiana. She's going backward. The Clintons will have to realize some day that their time is over. [Obama] has won this nomination, whether they try to steal it from him or not."

Of course, the Billary shills at TalkLeft are in full denial mode (and blaming the media as usual, this time for not calling a win for Hillary midway in what turned out to be a very narrow victory for Billary), but no Hillary supporter can be happy about her barely winning Indiana. She needed a decisive win to legitimize the huge ego that has her staying in the race and by no means did she get it, while Barack made a slam dunk in North Carolina:
But Obama resoundingly won in North Carolina, leaving a split decision and more pressure on Clinton's campaign.
Clinton vowed at a late-night rally in Indianapolis that her campaign would continue at "full speed" — then made an appeal for money to fight on in the face of a fund-raising disadvantage.
The liberal media will call this a split decision, but I'm calling Tuesday's results in IN and NC as a win for Barack partly because he overcame the Rev. Wright controversy while bringing the race back to what most: the issues. By the way, how about that "Operation Chaos"?

No, you couldn't possibly volunteer for military service because you love your country so much that you're willing to risk your life for it, you're just dumb and illiterate. That's the gospel according to Stephen King:
Remember shortly before Election Day 2006 when Sen. John Kerry (D-MA) suggested that if you don't get a good education, "you get stuck in Iraq" (video available here)?
Well, last month, famed horror author Stephen King was speaking in front of a group of high school students at the Library of Congress, and he virtually made the exact same statement.
For those that can bear it, what follows is another in a long line of liberal media members bashing the military (embedded right, h/t Terry Ann):
I don't want to sound like an ad, a public service ad on TV, but the fact is if you can read, you can walk into a job later on. If you don't, then you've got, the Army, Iraq, I don't know, something like that. It's, it's not as bright. So, that's my little commercial for that.
Never believe a liberal when one says that they support the troops. They don't.

Billary Inc., they'll stop at nothing to win:
WASHINGTON (CNN) –- Former President Bill Clinton will attend Sunday church services with North Carolina Congressman and uncommitted Democratic superdelegate Heath Shuler in his district, CNN has learned.
Shuler, a freshman congressman, is expected to announce Monday that he will pledge his support to whichever Democratic candidate wins his district in Tuesday’s primary.
The former NFL quarterback represents North Carolina’s 11th congressional district, which encompasses Asheville and the rural areas west to the border with Tennessee.
