It appears the Democrats' "go to" Sugar Daddy George Soros made a quick $60 mil in three days shorting the Australian dollar. Now considering Soros funds the Democrat infrastructure of intimidation and mind control through his Tides Foundation, Open Society Foundation and Media Matters (to name just a very few) and considering we have the most leftist, corrupt President since forever, what would the potential for corruption in terms of insider knowledge from a government source be on this whole sordid episode?
I'm sure CW is elated fellow alumnus Mark Sanford won down in South Carolina. Real Politics' last poll had Sanford +1, and he actually won by 9 or 10. I'm thrilled he won but this guy broke my heart. He was destined to be a superstar for the Republicans, and he blew it like a chump. So we shouldn't really read anything into this race in terms of Sanford "being back", he ain't. This is a heavily Republican district and his opponent was a loser from the get go (Co-BEAR my ass, it's Cole-Bert) And dude, this is South Carolina. Those people make me look downright congenial by comparison. They ain't electing the sister of some leftist, smartass turncoat of a TV personality.
The Benghazi hearing starts today and we should be getting some fireworks. Drudge is leading off with a "I Blame Her" headline and a picture of a smiling Hillary, click on it and you get a real cool video of Jake Tapper interviewing the mother of one of the four dead. It's pretty heady stuff! A lot of names are saying this could be Obama's downfall, Mike Huckabee and John Bolton to name just a couple. I don't know but I can't see this happening. As Dennis Miller said last night, whomever pulls the old Woodward & Bernstein on Obama is finished. Bringing down Obama or even Hillary would be career suicide...and maybe worse. So if this is going to happen, it will happen without the help of the NY Times. And if I were Sharyl Attkisson I'd get a food taster.
UPDATE: It seems Ms. Attkisson is being hit from both sides.
On a personal note I think I've played out my Facebook stream. I lose friends quicker than Anthony Weiner on a girl scout page. I freely admit I'm not suited to FB, I'm just too belligerent. This is a typical conversation I had the other day:
XXX: How do you know Linda xxxxx?
Hammer: Who says I do? The name rings a bell but I deal with a lot of people. Who is she?
XXX: Your (sic) friends with her. Relax. Why so combative?
Hammer: Combative? Man are you kidding? You'll know when I'm combative. But anyway I guess she friended me at one stage or another. Why, do you know her? And stop being such an accusatory asshole.
XXX: Ok we're done here. I was just trying to ask a question. Have a nice day.
Hammer: I was just giving you an example of combative.
XXX: Too late, not funny. Your (sic) way too judgmental for us to be friends. I hope you have a nice existence.
Hammer: God, people are so sensitive these days.
So, as you can see, maybe FB isn't the best fit for a guy like me (I should have guessed when Sgt. Major kept unfriending me). But let me just say this about that, if we were once FB pals and for some reason I offended you or insulted you or otherwise caused you distress, then let me say sincerely you can pucker up and kiss my sphincter because I could give a rat's ass. And that dear FB friends is from the heart.
