Quote of the Day

Charges of imperialism would be more believable if the US regarded the world as a prize to be won rather than a nuisance to be tolerated.

democrat spokesperson Debbie Wasserman-Schultz gets blindsided by reality once again

Monday, April 2nd, 2012

Reality is not just the friend of the left. Wasserman-Schultz is clearly completely out of touch with reality.

HT to Talk Straight blog.

He summed it up nicely:

Every now and then a politician gets blindsided by facts about which he or she knows absolutely nothing.
That is exactly what happened to Debbie Wasserman-Schultz on California’s KABC 790 AM.
The interview was conducted by Doug McIntyre, who from the very outset expressed his surprise/laughter that the DNC had selected former Los Angeles mayor Antonio Villaraigosa as the chairman for the upcoming convention in Charlotte. He also expressed the fact that this sentiment was shared by many residents of Los Angeles who had to live/suffer under Mayor Villaraigosa.
McIntyre continued: “We understand it as casting because of the outreach for the Hispanic vote but I mean really? Antonio Villaraigosa?”
Wasserman-Schultz attempted to do her best to put lipstick on that pig, but she was clearly outmatched by someone with first-hand experience about how bad it is to live in a metropolitan environment under Democratic rule.

Think Geek has stepped up to the plate again, with my two personal favorites being:

Star Trek Inflatable Captain’s Chair

Technomancer Digital Wizard Hoodie

Pure geeky crunchy goodness.

Here is the video of the Technomancer hoodie in action. Just because I think it is cool.

Google also hits it out of the park with Gmail Tap.
