More Change We Can Believe In!

Do you know this woman hobnobbing with Monkey Boy Chavez and Daniel Ortega?  You probably don’t but the Senate should.

See, that is anti-military activist Linda Panetta, daughter of CIA Director-designate, Leon Panetta.  While Papa Leon is not responsible for the beliefs and actions of his wayward daughter, her closeness to regimes and others who do not wish us well is a valid concern.  How close do his views coincide with his daughter’s?  The Senate needs to probe this aggressively.

Verbal Diarrhea Alert!

I'm a tool!

By LAMayor

A VDA has been issued for the DLO reading area.  Today’s oral deuce dropping comes from a man who never met an America-hating dictator he didn’t like . . . . Jeff Spicoli, er, Sean Penn.

I sat on the edge of my bed with my wife, son, and daughter, tears streaming down my face, as Barack Obama spoke for the first time as the President-Elect of the United States of America. I closed my eyes and started to see a film in my head. I could hear the music too, appropriately the Dixie Chicks covering a Fleetwood Mac song over slow-motion images in montage. There they were: Bush, Hannity, Cheney and McCain, Limbaugh, Robertson, Luis Posada Carilles…I saw them all. And the song was rising as the image of Sarah Palin took over the screen, Natalie Maines sweetly sang,

“And I saw my reflection in the snow-covered hills till the landslide brought me down.

Landslide brought me down…”

And so, we should hope, will go what remains of this, our mountain of snakes.

If you’re a self-loathing masochist, read “Sean Penn Goes to Venezuela and Cuba and Proclaims Them Good!” here.  It drips with enough narcissistic stupidity to make Jimmy Carter jealous.

Speaking of bearded dictators . . .

Warms the heart, doesn't it?

By lamayor

Holy crap.  Am I the only one concerned about this?  For those of us old enough to remember the Cold War, the thought of a resurgent Russia and China on the make should raise red flags (no pun intended but accurate).  Drudge brings us these two disturbing stories here and here.

This will do nothing but extend the lease on life of a tyrannical dictatorship.  All the while, the Cuban people will continue to suffer under the thumb of the castros, the original Murder, Inc.  We all know what a Cuba, flush with cash, is capable of.

Also, this is a boon for fidel, jr. – Monkey Boy Chavez.  Not only does he gain international legitimacy, however dubious it may be, but it helps him tighten the screws even further on the Venezuelan people.  This further increases the rogue gallery of America haters on Monkey Boy’s MySpace Friends List.

After a decade of Bush ignoring a resurgent Left in Latin America hell-bent on reshaping the continent, it is time for us to wake up.  In addition to Cuba and Venezuela – Bolivia, Ecuador, Honduras, and Nicaragua (Danny Ortega is back!) are changing constitutions and reversing hard-fought democratic gains.

We hope President Hope-ama will show some leadership and stand up for freedom in our backyard.  He can start by unequivocally standing with our friends and supporting the free trade agreements for Colombia and Panama and telling the Russians and Chinese to watch their asses.  If Hope-ama thinks that his coronation and force of personality will convince these guys to play nice, he is in for a rude awakening.  History doesn’t sleep.

We can hope – after all, isn’t that what the election was all about?
