Birthplace: Baltimore, Maryland
Claim To Fame: current Speaker of the House
Why She's Insane Liberal of the Week: for her ignorant refusal (despite 73% of Americans who favor it) to allow hearings on off-shore drilling for oil in and off Alaska, while at the same time actually opening the door for Bush Derangement Syndrome-sufferer Dennis Kucinich's impeachment hearings this week. Indeed, Pelosi's stunt is typical of liberal politicians who cater to the lies of militant environmentalism. Instead of helping to reduce oil prices as well as America's dependency of oil, Pelosi, leader of a 14%-approval rated Congress, would rather watch the American people continue to suffer at the pump with higher gas prices than offend her friends in the radical environmentalist lobby.

The Rev. Jesse Jackson used the N-word during a break in a TV interview where he criticized presidential candidate Barack Obama, Fox News confirmed Wednesday.Two apologies in one week? Caught using the n-word on tape? This from the same man who refused to accept apologies from Don Imus and Michael Richards when they racially derogatory remarks not too long back? Jesse's done now or at least he should be. Even his most loyal minions can't possibly save face in light of his latest bout of sheer stupidity, caught out there again by Bill O'Reilly. Some might say that Jesse is the gift that keeps on giving these days, but conservatives have long exposed Jesse Jackson as an overrated, race-baiting, con artist. It's only now that he's haphazardly allowed his utter jealousy at the new kid on the block to be heard by all the world that black liberals are finally seeing the light. Either way, it's long past time for Jesse to exit the stage . . . for good. because for all his supposed spiritual and moral leadership over the years, the good reverends rules always seem to change when it comes to his own transgressions. What a disgrace.
The longtime civil rights leader already came under fire this month for crude off-air comments he made against Obama in what he thought was a private conversation during a taping of a "Fox & Friends" news show. In additional comments from that same conversation, first reported by TVNewser, Jackson is reported to have said Obama was "talking down to black people," and referred to blacks with the N-word when he said Obama was telling them "how to behave."
Though a Fox spokesman confirmed the TVNewer's account to The Associated Press, the network declined to release the full transcript of the July 6 show and did not air the comments. Jackson — who is traveling in Spain — apologized in a statement Wednesday for "hurtful words" but didn't offer specifics.

Hmmm . . . seems to be an interesting dichotomy that's developed here:
So while John McCain has Mitt Romney, Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty, Mike Huckabee, Florida Gov. Charlie Crist and Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal all on the campaign trail talking about what a great guy he is (and obviously eager to show that they each deserve a chance at the VP spot). the same can't be said for Barack Obama. Indeed, most recently, media faves Ohio Gov. Ted Strickland, Senator Jack Reed, Senator Jim Webb and former Gov. Mark Warner have all pulled their names from consideration to be second-in-command. And why is that? Could it be that the Democrat party still aren't as united behind their presumptive nominee as they'd like you to think they are? Or perhaps Democrats are running away from Barack because quietly they're not so sure he can actually win? Or perhaps, like Senator Biden alluded to, calling a black man "boss" just doesn't sit well with members of the party that's supposed to represent tolerance. Of course, there's always Billary.
On Wednesday, Sen. Claire McCaskill of Missouri shook her head and cut off a question about whether Obama or his team had asked her for documents to review. "I'm not going to talk about it," she said.
Responding to the same question, Kansas Gov. Kathleen Sebelius issued a statement, saying: "The decision and timetable for the best person to help Sen. Obama lead the country is entirely up to him. All of us who support Sen. Obama have been asked to direct questions about his choice for vice president to the campaign."
A few others indicated they hadn't been approached, including Delaware Sen. Joe Biden. He said he is not seeking the job but also indicated he couldn't turn it down if asked. Still, he said: "I made it clear to him and everybody else, I never worked for anybody in my life. I got here when I was 29. I never had a boss. I don't know how I'd handle it."

In a unanimous decision yesterday the California Parole Board denied a request for compassionate release by convicted murderer Susan Atkins, now 60, and supposedly dying with three months to live:
The petition for Atkins' release ignited debate about what mercy is appropriate, particularly considering the grisly crimes for which she was convicted. With the rejection by the panel, the process is effectively over, making it highly likely that she will die in custody.As to be expected, some leftwing loons are howling against this decision by the California Parole Board, arguing in part that Atkins was young and on drugs when she committed her heinous act, has served 37 years in jail, exhibited model behavior in prison, is in deteriorating health and is "no longer a threat to society". Of course, this kind of thinking is typical of so-called "progressives" who care more about the rights of criminals than the victims of violent acts and serves as yet another reminder of the damaging effect liberals are having on society as a whole. Then too, in displaying their compassion for Sharon Tate's killer, the loons fail to mention that most drug users don't join murderous gangs, Atkins didn't show any remorse for her deeds till after she was convicted, she murdered others besides Sharon Tate and she's outlived her victims by 40 years already. This isn't about revenge, this is about Susan Atkins serving a sentence commensurate to her crimes. Our criminal justice already has many serious flaws, releasing Susan Atkins our of jail would only add to the problem and it'd send a very dangerous precedent.
In opposing Atkins' release, some family members had to bring back painful memories. Pam Turner, a cousin of Sharon Tate, recalled the pregnant actress' return to the United States, and dreaming of helping her with her baby. Then she spoke about wanting to die after finding out that Tate and her unborn son had been stabbed to death.
"I was a child, but I was so sick with grief that I wished I too could die," Turner said, sobbing. She described how Tate's mother, her aunt, "howled like a wounded animal."

"One top liberal blogger opined last week that Obama's drop in a recent Newsweek poll resulted from his vote for a compromise on FISA, the intelligence surveillance law.
Ridiculous: The average American voter can't describe what FISA is.
Meanwhile, a virtual mutiny is taking place on Obama's campaign Web site, which is swamped with angry complaints that Obama has sold out his "base."
Newsflash to the netroots and the media (which seems perpetually confused on this issue): The netroots are not the base of the Democratic Party.
Overwhelmingly white, male and highly educated, they're a loud anomaly in a party that's wholly dependent on the votes of African Americans, women and working-class whites.
And every poll in existence confirms that what the folks in the party's actual base care about is the economy and the Iraq war."
