So much to cover this week. First, hats off to Senator Edward Kennedy. It has been reported that he has been clean & sober for over 3 weeks now. Way to go Ted!

Then there’s this article from the June 2004 archives of the East African Standard newspaper, under the headline of.
Kenyan-born US Senate hopeful, Barrack Obama, appeared set to take over the
Illinois Senate seat after his main rival, Jack Ryan, dropped out of the race on
Friday night amid a furor over lurid sex club allegations.

If mere African newspapers aren’t reliable enough (they aren’t, unless they agree with the American state-run media’s template de jour) how about the Honolulu Advertiser from January 2006?
"Very rarely have I met a more impressive person than Tammy Duckworth," said
Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill., in an article the day before she announced her
candidacy Dec. 18. "She just has the poise and exudes the type of character that
I think would make her an astounding public servant."

Duckworth is happy to point out that she and Hawai'i-raised Punahou
graduate Obama have "a kama'aina connection."

Both were born outside the country — Obama in Indonesia, Duckworth
in Thailand — and graduated from high school in Honolulu — Punahou and McKinley,

It would appear that Winston Smith, down at the Ministry of Truth, has been asleep at the switch in his job of sanitizing history for the benefit of Big Brother.

Another interesting tidbit yours truly stumbled across is a little old thing called House Rule XIII (3)(d)(1), which requires:

"Each report of a committee on a public bill or public joint resolution shall
contain the following: A statement citing the specific powers granted to
Congress in the Constitution to enact the law proposed by the bill or joint

Seems they take that one even less seriously than that silly “protect and defend” oath they all took. And yet, with the help of a totally corrupt media and a population of sheeple, they remain in power rather than being booted out on their butts or, perhaps, ridden out of town on a rail covered with tar and feathers.

Now, just to make sure nobody reminds them of silly little things like the Constitution and their own rules, Attorney General Eric “Heinrich” Holder has used our tax dollars to hire a “Blog Squad”, no doubt hired from fair, unbiased and reasonable folks such as those found at Democratic Underground, Moveon.Org, and the Manson Family. Their purpose? According to the Muffled Oar:

Not only is the Department of Justice Blog Squad going to reach out to
nontraditional media like TPM Muckraker or the Muffled Oar, but they are also
tasked with fostering anonymous comments at conservative leaning blogs such as
the Free Republic. They are also tasked with fostering anonymous comments, or
comments under pseudonyms, at newspaper websites with stories critical of the
Department of Justice, Holder and President Obama.

If indeed this is
what DOJ media outreach does, it would most certainly qualify as “astroturfing.”
Astroturfing is the action of using fake commenters and multiple screen names on
all sorts of sites to push a similar opinion to create the appearance of a grass
roots movement and make it seem as if there are all sorts of individuals
naturally supporting a product or political movement.

It most certainly
is a creepy, propagandistic sort of effort that Holder’s office is involved in,
and it is one that certainly seems an immoral one. After all, it most certainly
is lying to the public if there are a handful of DOJ employees casting about on
hundreds of different websites pretending that they are just your average
citizen coming to the support of the Obama administration. But is it illegal?
Hans von Spakovsky of National Review’s the corner blog certainly thinks so.
Your tax dollars at work, boys and girls. See you in the Gulags.

Ted's been sober, but I doubt he's clean.
