Denver: The Circus comes to town.

This is going to be a psychedelic week!

“…a light will shine through that window, a beam of light will come down upon you, you will experience an epiphany … and you will suddenly realize that you must go to the polls and vote for Obama”‘

— Barack Hussein Obama

Above is a drawing by Otto Veblin which appears today in an article by James Lewis in American Thinker entitled “Why are liberals so gullible?”

Great article…a must read by all conservative standards (via link above).

Here’s an excerpt…

When you see Obama’s next Nuremberg Rally with his nose in the air, take it as a sign of things to come. He really does despise us, you know. But he feels sorry for us, too, because he knows better. Contempt and pity go hand in hand. Maybe the liberal masses just love being pitied. Maybe they just accept being weak, helpless, and not too bright. Good grief.

Liberalism doesn’t change. What might change, over time, is for more sensible folk to recover their voices, after being completely shut out of the public square by the Sixties Left. The answer to liberal gullibility is debate, debate, debate. Open up those minds, tell them it’s ok to think your own thoughts, it’s ok to be different. Intellectual courage matters.

The media should never be run by a professional guild. Monopolies kill competing voices. Real thinking only thrives with vigorous intellectual competition. That’s why our universities have become brain-dead company towns. That’s why the Old Media need to go out of business, and the sooner the better.

When America rediscovers open debate, freedom will thrive again. The victims of media delusions will discover a world of intellectual excitement and danger. True Believers will have to deal with the reality of Doubt.

Here’s to it. Vive la liberté!

Republicans Plan to Cover the Democratic Convention in Denver–“Not Ready ’08” (WSJ)

“Not Ready ’08” (heheh)…this is going to be fun!

Former McCain opponents Rudy Giuliani and Mitt Romney, along with Gov. Tim Pawlenty of Minnesota and a host of others, will be in Denver working with the staff in a two-story office within walking distance of the convention site.

From the headquarters, complete with catering and a security detail, the surrogates will hold news conferences, make television appearances and give satellite interviews with outlets in battleground states.

Will John Edwards speak at the Democratic National Convention?

UPDATE 3:55 pm 8/8/2008: Edwards admits to affair, denies fathering child

UPDATE: Fox News is now hammering this point with their article (posted at 12:57 pm today) “Edwards’ Party Role Clouded by Allegations.”

If Edwards thought he could forever dodge the issue of mistress and love child, he obviously forgot about the convention, which starts on August 25th. He would normally be expected to speak…but he must first clear up the “confusion.”

Did he or didn’t he?

Though the televised media isn’t touching this matter (yet), the print media is beginning to ask. Here’s excerpt and link from The Dallas Morning News article today…

“He absolutely does have to [resolve it]. If it’s not true, he has to issue a stronger denial,” said Gary Pearce, the Democratic strategist who ran Mr. Edwards’ 1998 Senate race.

Mr. Edwards’ decision not to take questions about the allegations has allowed doubts to linger and political bloggers to speculate.
