"Will you act your age and stop playing with that sign?"
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s popularity has fallen to a new low for the year, with 60 percent of likely voters now viewing her unfavorably according to a Rasmussen Reports poll released Friday.
Even worse news for the California Democrat: A whopping 42 percent characterize her job performance as “very unfavorable.”
The trend looks bad for Pelosi as well. Just two weeks ago, 53 percent of those surveyed viewed Pelosi somewhat or very unfavorably, and her “very unfavorable” rating was 36 percent. A 7 point favorability decline in two weeks suggests Pelosi’s popularity is in a serious tailspin.
Despite this week’s rally on Wall Street, pundits say Democrats are taking it on the chin over the bad economy and the fallout over AIG bonuses.
“Congress is feeling voter anger over executive bonuses paid by AIG after it received a massive taxpayer bailout,” the Rasmussen organization reports in its analysis of the results.
Yeah, keep thinking that the American people are stupid enough to buy into Rush Limbaugh being the reason they're losing jobs while incompetent CEO's are getting bailouts:
Put aside the fact that while he was in office, liberals almost never wished for President Bush to succeed. Because it's been the leftwing strategy to take the focus off the Democrat-controlled Congress and President's responsibility for this economic mess we're in and put it on longtime GOP radio host Rush Limbaugh ever since he dared to make the comment that he hoped Obama's policies "failed". However, as Barry O's approval ratings continue to slide and cracks in the armor of Democrat solidarity begin the show, the idea of the GOP being down for the count continues to make a mockery of itself.
NEW YORK -- Premiere Radio Networks' Rush Limbaugh read a memo from the "EIB Ratings Analysis Unit" showing that his ratings were up significantly in February in PPM markets.
The memo reads, "Try #1 12 plus in New York, Chicago and Houston! Over the last 3 months WABC goes 4.6 to 5.9 to 6.7 to be #1 from 12n to 3pm with total audience 12 plus."The memo also says Limbaugh was number one 12+ on WLS in February and is "so huge in Houston he scores in every demo."
Limbaugh said (per a transcript at www.rushlimbaugh.com), "Remember, now, these ratings came in before the big hit on 'I want Obama to fail.' It was out there [as of January 16], but it wasn't until the CPAC speech that Rahm Emanuel went on Slay the Nation, and the whole drive-bys picked up on it; and there was the Carville-Begala-Stan Greenberg-Emanuel assault. So that's going to be March. We'll get that pretty soon. But I wanted to pass this on to you. These are important because there are 62 million people that voted against Barack Obama. The drive-by media tries to portray this nation as 100% united behind him, and it's not. What is happening, these audience growth rates are phenomenal."
Limbaugh noted that he rarely talks about ratings but said, "I wanted to share this with you, not just 'cause it's good news for me, but it's good news for all of us ... It shows that there is an appetite and a hunger for some opposition for what is happening.

Nothing makes a rich, white celebrity feel better good about themselves (or guarantee them a place in heaven) like adopting an African kid. From Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman to Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie to Madonna, the craze continues:
As we reported yesterday, Madonna is looking to adopt a second child from Malawi. Reuters is now reporting that on Monday, a Malawian court will review the singer's request to adopt a 14-month-old girl named Mercy James, who comes from the same orphanage as the singer's adopted son David. "Her name is Mercy James from Mchinji Home of Hope orphanage. She has no father and mother; they both died," an official at the ministry of Gender and Child Development told Reuters. "We finished the assessment yesterday in readiness for the courts next week."Now Madonna can take her latest fashion accessory and teach her how to live a life lacking of values, self-respect and morals just like she has. And somewhere Conrad Bain is smiling.
Because foreign adoptions are not officially allowed in Malawi, news of Madonna's plans has sparked controversy, with some speculating that the pop star is benefiting from special treatment. But Madonna, 50, was recently quoted in a local Malawian newspaper saying that she would only go through with a second adoption if the Malawian people supported it. She is expected to arrive in Malawai this weekend.
This is from the British Parliament and borders on the greatest speech I've ever seen a politician make. To say we need more pols like Daniel Hannan (whose a conservative by the way) in the States is a severe understatement.

The brutal death of a radio news personality doesn't here in New York doesn't revoke the media from doing its job, like not focusing on the fact that Goerge Weber lured a 16-year-old boy to his house to have sex right before he died:
A teenager arrested in the stabbing death of a New York City newsman has pleaded not guilty to charges of second-degree murder and weapon possession.The focus of this story everywhere I've read is on the teen and his creepy MySpace page, yet what should get equal treatment here is that this boy was seduced by an older man. Of course, I don't know how this will play out, but from the from the looks of it Katehis' lawyer has a valid case on his hands if he can prove that not did George Weber rape this kid, but he may also have a long history of sexually abusing and assaulting young boys.
John Katehis is being held without bail. He was arrested in Middletown, and arraigned Wednesday night in Brooklyn. -Click here to see photos of John Katehis, from his MySpace page (Warning: Some photos may be disturbing)
George Weber was stabbed at least 50 times and his ankles were bound. Police say Katehis claimed he was answering an online ad offering $60 for rough sex.
Katehis' lawyer, Herbert Moses, told reporters that his client was being used by an older man. He says details about their relationship will emerge later.
Weber worked 12 years as an on-air reporter at WABC in New York. He also had worked at stations in California, Denver and Pennsylvania.
This comes just after Palin once again attacked the media for their liberal bias recently. Certainly Mr. "Obama Gives Me A Tingle Up My Leg" needs to tell her that she obviously has no idea what she's talking about:
An offended Chris Matthews, on Thursday night's "Hardball," was so shocked by Sarah Palin's claim that there wasn't anybody to pray with on the McCain campaign, that he hurled multiple insults Palin's way, calling her, "a little scary," and asked if Palin thought McCain was, "the Anti-Christ?" Matthews was appalled by Palin's recent revelation that she had trouble finding someone to pray with before her vice presidential debate and the MSNBC host worried such talk about "The Deity in a political environment," wasn't "normal."
Matthews' guest panelists also joined in the fray as the Washington Post's Lois Romano declared, "I think it's bizarre and I think it's judgmental," and Mother Jones magazine's David Corn cackled it was "mean and catty." RNC chair Michael Steele was also knocked for a recent profession of faith, as Matthews blurted: "Why does everything sound like the '700 Club,' with this party now? I mean everything seems to be a religious discussion."
Matthews and his panel didn't just stop at insulting Palin's religious beliefs, they also belittled Palin for her hand gestures and attractiveness. Over video of Palin waving at a campaign rally Matthews ridiculed: "You know, doing that windshield wiper wave though is not serious. That's not a serious wave. I'm sorry that's not what you do when you want to lead the free world. That's, that's more like, 'I'm a celebrity and people like me.'
Remember, it was MSNBC that had to pull the plug on Matthews and that idiot Keith Olbermann during last year's election coverage because they knew that the two were just incapable of objectively reporting the events. Obviously, when it comes to Obama stans, their hatred for those who dare question their leader is just too hard to hide.
This stance will still make him less popular with the goon squad on the Left, whose immoral agenda is much more important than what's going on in the economy. Barry O better be careful, as he's already lost significant ground with moderates around the country. If and when his base start to turn on him, then he'll be in a whole heap of trouble:
The White House's innovative Open for Questions forum has produced plenty of substantive questions on wonky issues. But roughly midway through, the president preemptively took one of the more popular and provocative questions of the bunch.
The query, which received more than three million votes, was: "With over 1 out of 30 Americans controlled by the penal system, why not legalize, control, and tax marijuana to change the failed war on drugs into a money making, money saving boost to the economy? Do we really need that many victimless criminals?"
Obama actually interrupted the M.C of the event -- Jared Bernstein, chief economist to the Vice President -- in order to tackle the topic. He kept his answer brief.
"There was one question that voted on that ranked fairly high and that was whether legalizing marijuana would improve the economy and job creation," he said. "And I don't know what this says about the online audience, but ... this was a popular question. We want to make sure it's answered. The answer is no, I don't think that's a good strategy to grow our economy. All right."
Responded Bernstein: "Thank you for clearing that up."
Vermont Gov. James Douglas announced Wednesday that he plans to veto a bill that would grant same-sex couples equal rights in marriage, if the bill reaches his desk.Good for Gov. James Douglas to ignore those who wish to make a mockery out of marriage and turn it into their own twisted version of "civil rights". Homosexuality is a lifestyle choice that should not catered to by the government. It's enough that two states in this country, Massachusetts and Connecticut, have been forced by activist courts to perform "gay" marriages". And I'm sure that legislators in Vermont have more important things to do than sanction sodomy within their state. Besides gays already have the "right" to marry just like everyone else. Why are civil unions (which to my knowledge contains almost, if not all, the benefits of traditional marriage) not good enough for gays? Because the gay "movement" has made it's most of its strides by jumping on the civil rights bandwagon of the 60's and what better way to dilute Christian doctrine but through government stamped perversion? About time somebody step up and say "no" to these bullies.
"I believe our civil-union law serves Vermont well and I would support congressional action to extend those benefits at the federal level to states that recognize same-sex unions," the Republican said in a written statement. "But, like President Obama and other leaders on both sides of the aisle, I believe that marriage should remain between a man and woman."
In a telephone interview, Vermont Senate President Pro Tem Peter Shumlin, the main sponsor of the bill, described Douglas' decision as "cowardly."
"You cannot veto love and commitment between two people," the Democrat said. "This is a civil-rights issue. It is time for the governor to show some courage."
The same-sex marriage bill passed 26-4 in the state Senate on Monday; the House was in hearings on the matter this week.

At the 40 second mark you can hear some chick yell "Kill the police"...twice, during this rally that took place just think past weekend.
The insanity of the Left never ceases to amaze me.
Yeah, of course, the Teleprompter-In-Chief got pissed, because he got caught out there on national TV in lieu of the fact that he's known about the AIG bonuses for months now. Ed Henry took Barry O down for the count tonight. So rare when someone in the press, outside of FOX News, puts aside Obama worship and actually does it's damn job in asking BO a tough question.
Great job by Mr. Henry!

Finally, people are starting to pay real close attention to the inept man they elected Teleprompter-In-Chief:
The Left will continue to have Obama's back as long as he caters to their self-interests. But it wasn't just the Left that elected Barry O POTUS, it was also moderates, centrists and even conservatives who voted him in. But apparently, seeing no end in sight to the conniving and deceiving and lying by this President, his cabinet and this Congress, Americans are making a statement which clearly says that they're fed up.
The honeymoon is over, according to a national poll out today as President Obama’s job approval stumbles to about 50 percent over the lack of improvement with the crippled economy.
The sobering numbers come as the president backpedals from two prime-time gaffes - one comparing his bowling score to a Special Olympian and another awkwardly laughing about the economy, which prompted Steve Kroft of “60 Minutes” to ask “are you punch-drunk?”
Pollster John Zogby said his poll will show Americans split on the president’s performance. He said the score factors out to “about 50-50.”
The poll, released this afternoon, shows the president’s “excellent or good” job performance rating hitting 49 percent, down 3 points from a March 5 Zogby poll.
Hey, Barry O's a set-for-life celebrity whose pocketed millions from his book deals, so why should he worry about this financial mess we're in? Thousands of people losing jobs every week, unemployment on the up and up, folks angry about bailouts and the Teleprompter President thinks it's all a big joke.

That's just great. So now we learn that Nadya Suleman isn't as stupid as we thought. She had this whole circus planned from the get-go and it'll be our tax dollars footing the bill. The hope here is that Americans will be kind enough of send many their thanks to Nadya, it's not like you don't have enough problems.
Good. Liberals only believe in stuff like free speech and open democracy when it supports their immoral agenda. Anti-Prop 8 mobs have threatened and intimidated traditional marriage supporters for awhile now and had the mainstream press has said little about it. Maybe the courts can show these self-righteous bigots that boycotting businesses is one thing, but a line is crossed when you use violence and harassment to scare people whose views disagrees with yours.
After giving $10,000 to California's Proposition 8 campaign last year, Charles LiMandri began receiving some unexpected correspondence.
"I got about two dozen e-mails and hate phone calls," said Mr. LiMandri, who lives in San Diego. "They were calling me Nazi, homophobe, bigot. I tried to engage people once or twice - I said that Proposition 8 had nothing to do with being bigoted, it was about preserving marriage - but people don't want to engage on the issue."
As a lawyer, however, Mr. LiMandri knew what to do with the e-mails.
"I collected them and turned them in to the lawsuit," he said.
Those e-mails are now among hundreds of exhibits in a landmark case challenging California's campaign-finance reporting rules, which require the release of the names, addresses and employers of those who contribute $100 or more to ballot-measure committees.
The lawsuit argues that those who contribute to traditional-marriage initiatives should be exempt from having their names disclosed, citing the widespread harassment and intimidation of donors to the Proposition 8 campaign.

Can you believe this guy:
President Barack Obama has hit back at criticism by Dick Cheney, disputing the former vice president's claims that closing Guantanamo endangers the United States, according to interview excerpts released Saturday.
"How many terrorists have actually been brought to justice under the philosophy that is being promoted by vice president Cheney?" Obama asked on the CBS program "60 Minutes," scheduled to air late Sunday.
"It hasn't made us safer. What it has been is a great advertisement for anti-American sentiment."
Obama also said the United States had not been effective at preventing detainees released from the US naval base at Guantanamo Bay in southern Cuba from returning to the fight.
"There is no doubt that we have not done a particularly effective job in sorting through who are truly dangerous individuals ... to make sure [they] are not a threat to us, he said.
But he also said the treatment of Guantanamo prisoners by the George W. Bush administration, which included lengthy detentions without trial, was "unsustainable."
Yeah, it's not like the Bush administration didn't take out over half of Al Qaeda's leaders or keep us safe from a terrorist attack in the last 7 years. But why should the former Most Liberal Senator in the U.S. turned Teleprompter President acknowledge something minor like that when he can turn a Jimmy Carter and embrace those who've long held anti-American sentiment even before Barry O became a community activist? Barack Obama is a joke and so are the people who elected him. It's scary to think that we have at least more 3-plus more years of this travesty as President
