I'm sorry, but even I can't defend this one. The libs are having a laugh/riot-fest with this interview and rightfully so. She clearly was just not thinking here. I'm no vegetarian or an animal-rights nut, but no one in their right mind would've done this interview with a dude slaughtering turkeys in the background. I mean while she's talking about the "tough political race" a turkey in the back is getting his rung....you can't make this stuff up. No doubt this will keep 'em talking about Sarah P. for a few more days, at least.

New York has accepted an offer from President-elect Barack Obama to become U.S. secretary of state, joining her former Democratic rival to help guide U.S. foreign policy, the New York Times said on Friday.Listen, speaking as a lifetime New Yorker, Hillary Clinton did nothing for our state worth mentioning during her reign as Senator so in a way I'm glad she'll be gone. But unless the Obama team has some grand scheme at works, an administration with Hillary Clinton as Secretary of State, not the mention the other Billary cronies Barack has already hired, is a bad sign. I refuse to believe that there isn't anyone more qualified to be Secretary of State than Hillary Clinton. And how Barack Obama can trust the Clinton's after all the crap they put him through during the primaries is beyond me. This is "change"?!?
The newspaper quoted two Clinton associates who said she came to her decision after additional discussions with Obama about the nature of her role as the top U.S. diplomat and his foreign policy plans.
"She's ready," one of the sources told the newspaper, which posted the report on its website.
Clinton emerged as a frontrunner for the secretary of state job late last week, transfixing a country which had seen her compete hard against Obama to win the Democratic nomination for the presidency. Obama clinched that nomination in June and then beat Republican John McCain in the November 4 election.
Democratic Party sources have recently said Clinton, was on track to be nominated, with an official announcement expected after the November 27 Thanksgiving holiday.
I'm amazed that more conservatives aren't getting behind Norm Coleman in this recount that is clearly tilting in Al Franken's favor. I mean, consider what's at stake here: Democrats being one step closer to a filibuster-proof super-majority (much less an idiot like Al Franken being in Congress). The big guns on the Left are certainly stepping up to the plate, where are the GOP's? And you just know the Goracle got paid a handsome fee to step away from his "climate change" hoax to make an appearance for Franken, not that King of the Loons Soros can't afford Gore's undoubtedly hefty retainer.
Left-wing billionaire George Soros is hosting a fundraiser on Thursday night to help Democrat Al Franken win the recount in Minnesota’s Senate election.
The gathering at Soros’ Manhattan home will raise money to help Franken’s campaign cover the cost of monitoring the statewide recount.
“The special guest: Al Gore, who knows a thing or two about recounts,” the New York Post reports.
Republican Sen. Norm Coleman leads Franken by just over 200 votes at last count, out of 2.9 million cast. The results of the hand recount are not expected to be released until mid-December.
Coleman remains confident. His spokesman Mark Drake said: “This race will not be decided by New York billionaires or the U.S. Senate. It will be decided by Minnesotans, and we are confident Sen. Coleman will prevail.”
Earlier this year Soros’ fortune was estimated at $9 billion.

Online dating service eHarmony said Wednesday it will launch a new Web site which caters to same-sex singles as part of a discrimination settlement with New Jersey's Civil Rights Division.
The settlement is the result of a complaint New Jersey resident Eric McKinley filed against the online matchmaker in 2005. McKinley, 46, said he was shocked when he tried to sign up for the dating site but couldn't get past the first screen because there was no option for men seeking men.
"It's very frustrating and it's very humiliating to think that other people can do it and I can't," he said. "And the only reason I can't is because I'm a gay man. That's very hurtful."
Neither the company nor its founder, Neil Clark Warren, acknowledged any liability. Under the settlement, eHarmony will pay New Jersey state division $50,000 to cover administrative costs and will pay McKinley $5,000.
"Hurtful" my ass. This was a clear attempt to force an immoral lifestyle choice down the throat of a not only Christian, but privately-owned dating service. There are probably hundreds of dating websites that cater to gays around the country, but McKinley went after eharmony because of its immense popularity, strict traditional beliefs and the likelihood that he'd find a liberal judge that'd vote in his favor. I'm almost certain that McKinley had the financial backing of gay rights "activists" before he filed suit and as this suit lagged in the courts eHarmony was undoubtedly forced to settle due to rising court fees probably effecting business. Indeed, another victory for the morally bankrupt "progressives".

Listen, I don't buy into the idea that most people who voted for Barack Obama are stupid. Incredibly naive? Yes. Too lazy to read up on the issues? Yes. Voting for "change" (i.e. "the black guy")? Yes. But stupid, no. It's a dangerous message to paint American voters as being clueless, indeed it's the exact same memo liberals have been putting out about anyone who voted for George W. Bush for 8 years now. And in order to really move forward we don't need want to be like them, do we?
With that said, what this video does clearly point out, that conservatives need to address, is the level of influence by the mainstream media on the populate. That needs to be fixed and maybe it begins with more conservatives not only challenging the media on their bias, but more conservatives taking part in the message process themselves. It's easy to sit back in your recliner with the remote and bitch, but besides voting (sorry, no pat on the back from me for performing your civic duty) what are you doing to actually assist with who controls the message? The fact that more people know about Sarah Palin's wardrobe costs than who Nancy Pelosi is, shows you that as ignorant as they can be on discussing what's important, the mediots are still winning message wars.

Not a shocker at all:
A majority of Americans say Hollywood doesn't share their , according to a poll commissioned by the Anti-Defamation League, a group that fights anti-Semitism.
Sixty-one percent of those surveyed said that religious values in America are "under attack," and 59% agreed that "the people who run the TV networks and the major movie studios do not share the religious and moral values of most Americans."
The poll, titled "American Attitudes on Religion, Moral Values and Hollywood," was conducted by the Marttila Communications Group, which surveyed 1,000 adults nationwide. It was released Friday at the ADL's annual meeting in Los Angeles.
"These findings point to the challenges that we face in dealing with issues of religion in society," said Abraham H. Foxman, ADL national director. "The belief that religion is under attack underlies the drive to incorporate more religion into American public life. Disturbingly, 43% of Americans believe there is an organized campaign by Hollywood and the national media to weaken the influence of religious values in this country."
Among the survey's findings:
-- 61% of respondents agree that "religious values are under attack in this country," while 36% disagree with that statement.
-- 43% said that Hollywood and the national media are waging an organized campaign to "weaken the influence of religious values in this country."

If Barack Obama asks Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton to be secretary of state, she likely will face questions about the global network her husband Bill has created with his foundation, speaking engagements, and business ventures, experts said Friday.Put aside questions concerning conflict of interests, why would Barack Obama put himself in even more of a position to be undermined by having Billary on his cabinet along with the two Billary cronies he's already hired? Unless there's been some major scheming between the Obama and Clinton camps behind the scenes of late (which wouldn't surprise me too much), Barack seems be acting really naive (inexperienced?) here. I don't have a strong feeling one way or the other about who should be Secretary of State, but certainly a better pick exists out there that's not named Hillary Clinton.
Those questions could include whether Bill Clinton has conflicts of interest or follows the State Department line in his dealings with business and government leaders overseas.
Since leaving the White House eight years ago, Bill Clinton has entered into business partnerships and established the William J. Clinton Foundation, which sponsors international development, AIDS care and other initiatives in projects around the world.
The Clintons dissolved their blind trust and sold their stocks last year, and Bill Clinton disengaged from some investments, to avoid conflict of interest questions while Hillary Clinton (D-N.Y.) campaigned for president.

Threats against a new president historically spike right after an election, but from Maine to Idaho law enforcement officials are seeing more against Barack Obama than ever before. The Secret Service would not comment or provide the number of cases they are investigating. But since the Nov. 4 election, law enforcement officials have seen more potentially threatening writings, Internet postings and other activity directed at Obama than has been seen with any past president-elect, said officials aware of the situation who spoke on condition of anonymity because the issue of a president's security is so sensitive.
Earlier this week, the Secret Service looked into the case of a sign posted on a tree in Vay, Idaho, with Obama's name and the offer of a "free public hanging." In North Carolina, civil rights officials complained of threatening racist graffiti targeting Obama found in a tunnel near the North Carolina State University campus.
And in a Maine convenience store, an Associated Press reporter saw a sign inviting customers to join a betting pool on when Obama might fall victim to an assassin. The sign solicited $1 entries into "The Osama Obama Shotgun Pool," saying the money would go to the person picking the date closest to when Obama was attacked. "Let's hope we have a winner," said the sign, since taken down.
Indeed, Obamania has covered up the fact that in two months a black man will be taking the oath for president for the first time in this nation's history and a good percentage of people across this country, sadly, still have a problem with that. The fact that Obama faces more threats to his life inside the U.S. than overseas proves again that race is still the most divisive force in this country.
The GOP is already pretty desperate so what the heck:
The California secretary of state should refuse to allow the state's 55 Electoral College votes to be cast in the 2008 presidential election until President-elect Barack Obama verifies his eligibility to hold the office, alleges a California court petition filed on behalf of former presidential candidate Alan Keyes and others.
The legal action today is just the latest is a series of challenges, some of which have gone as high as the U.S. Supreme Court, over the issue of Obama's status as a "natural-born citizen," a requirement set by the U.S. Constitution.
WND senior reporter Jerome Corsi even traveled to Kenya and Hawaii prior to the election to investigate issues surrounding Obama's birth. But his research and discoveries only raised more questions.
The biggest question is why Obama, if a Hawaii birth certificate exists, simply hasn't ordered it made available to settle the rumors.
