Jackasses On Parade
I'm beginning to believe the Democratic Party is stuck in a time warp in which they believe they still control a limited media which, on the whole, does their bidding and enables them to make outrageous statements without fear of their actions being recorded and made available to the general public.
Let's review a sampling of this weeks Jackass Hit Parade.
First and foremost is Algore. The former VP of the Clinton (Sorry Excuse For) Administration had two forays into the limelight he so desperately craves. He started off in Park City, Utah to premier his latest Environmentally Whacked Mockumentary "An Inconvenient Truth". Truth, sadly, is a subject with which Algore is wholly unfamiliar. The New York Observer's Ben Smith's title says all we need to know about the MSM's hopeful joy about Algore - Gore Is Bigger Than Ever!.
Not to be outdone by himself, Algore entered the international fray by denouncing Canadian Prime Minister (Designate) Stephen Harper even before Harper has had time pick up a gavel. Why did, in Algore "informed" opinion, Harper's party win the latest Canadian election? Big Oil, of course.
My apologies to the SOTR's Canadian readers. Despite appearances to the contrary, Algore really is a washed up wanna-be - Park City ovations not withstanding.
Next we travel to the Commonwealth of Massachusetts where both of her Senators are pushing an uphill battle to filibuster the confirmation of SCOTUS nominee Samuel Alito. "Scotch" Kennedy and Lurch Kerry have each, in their own way, demanded blockage of Alito's nomination. Scotch issued a statement from his satellite office located in a Boston Pub. Lurch phoned in his demand from a location where he is most at ease - Switzerland.
And finally (at least for this post) one cannot ignore the rantings of Howlin' Mad Howie "I Have A Scream" Dean. In an interview with NBC's Katie Couric, Howie was in classic combative form - which means he looked and sounded like a second rate court jester.

Memo to the MSM: Please give this guy more air time.
