The Past Week: Recaps and Random Thoughts, August 31-September 6 (A REAL Political Pregnancy Scandal; Free Don Siegelman; Don’t Show Off, Obama!, Canadian Election, GREEN CHILE!)

Wow, what a week! The Palin selection and the outrageous response from the media and Obama sycophants took up most of our attention…Here are some other things which caught my eye.

***

I got an email early in the week from “Free Don Siegelman” which is sponsored by Friends of Don Siegelman. In case you don’t remember, Siegelman was targeted in the infamous “fired attorneys scandal” engineered by then Attorney General Alberto Gonzales and Karl Rove.  Siegelman, then governor of Alabama, was targeted for 5 years and then imprisoned for 9 months on a conviction of bribery, conspiracy and mail fraud in a case that raised serious questions about the politicization of the the Justice Department.  Now out of prison and on appeal, Siegelman is trying to raise money for his legal defense fund. I’ll be writing more about this next week. In the meantime, check out his site and find out how Karl Rove has blown off a subpoena and could get away scott free if the full House doesn’t vote on the contempt citation passed by the House Judiciary Committee before this Congressional session is over.  And guess who might let him get away?  The Democratic leadership…Siegelman was at the Democratic Convention, trying to rally House members for a vote this fall and politely NAILED the leadership.

With all the crap in the media and the stuff coming from the Obamacrats about Sarah Palin, you might have missed this tidbit:

Democrats may be blasting Sarah Palin as a doctrinaire conservative, and Republicans may be embracing her for the same reason, but her husband and oldest son are independents.

Or, more precisely, their party affiliation is listed as “undeclared” on voter registration records retrieved from the Alaska Division of Elections.

Todd Palin, husband of the Alaska governor, hasn’t been affiliated with a party since he first registered to vote while he was in his early 20s, in 1989 — the year after he married Sarah Palin. And Track Palin, their 19-year-old son, registered as undeclared when he became eligible to vote last year.

Not sure when the media and the Obama crew will move off Sarah Palin’s pregnant daughter onto the next “scandal,” but in the meantime, here’s something they can sink their teeth into:

French minister’s pregnancy scandal

AFP VideoFriday, September 5, 2008 at 9:01 EDT

High profile justice minister Rachida Dati confirmed she is expecting but refused to reveal the name of the father.  Video report here.

The 42-year old, Muslim-born minister, who is single, hasn’t named the father, but the rumor is that he is the former prime minister of Spain, Jose Aznar.  Now, THERE’s a scandal!

I saw this great video called “Don’t Show Off Before the Fight” which may be a perfect visual for how the arrogant Obama might overplay his hand.  Enjoy!

***

It looks like Canada might be having its own election only a couple of weeks before our own. The Toronto Star has reported that the election may be called for October 14.

In local news:

The Toad Rescue resumed this week after a very heavy night of rain.  First, I rescued a baby toad, and the next day a big, fat one, swimming wildly in the water bowl. I was really surprised to seem them…most are underground…didn’t hear any chorus of mating toads this time.  This week I’ve seen the latest addition to the squirrel colony on the other side of the wall. An adorable baby…who knows how many there are!

In the garden, the peppers, tomatoes, and lima beans are going nuts.  The pimiento peppers are getting huge, but the eggplant are slowing down a bit. I should be planting my fall crops, but with so much still producing, I hate to pull everything up!

Tomorrow I pick up 25 lbs. of fresh roasted, organic green chile, so it will be a long day in the kitchen as I clean and seed them and then pack them away in the freezer!

  1. The whole Don Siegelman debacle highlights once again the fact that Democrats DO NOT even try to protect their own. You know damn well that if Siegelman had been a Republican they would have had their outrage front and center until he was free. Siegelman was left to twist in the wind, or his cell, by those that should have made his freedom their primary concern.

    Media is in many cases responsible for making politicians shy away from anything or anyone they feel may “taint” them in some way. That is no excuse for ALL of us not remembering that in our society one is innocent until proven guilty. And that doesn’t mean proven guilty by Nancy Grace or any other idiotic talking head.

    When a lawyer, like Jeralyn at TL, actually tries to smear Governor Palin for “lawyering up” the time has come for all of us to take a step or two back. Hiring a lawyer is smart and usually necessary. And a lawyer, before all others, know that. Trail by media has got to stop. As does election/selection by media.

    And Democrats need to convince me that they will protect us when they don’t even seem to find any interest in protecting their own.

  2. Marge,

    Amen.

    insightanalytical,

    Love this blog.

  3. Well, how would helping Siegelman benefit Obama? Seems it’s been the only rule for this party – for at least the past 2 years. I am convinced the impeachment ws taken off the table for this reason – in fact I remember Nanacy saying at one point ‘it would interfere with taking back the White House”

  4. Amen to all comments.

    Marge, you are so right.
    I remember hearing (on the teevee) that Tom Delay was greeted with open arms as a “hero” at the RNC this past week.. And Newt (OMG how I detest that man) was actually quoted even on the pro-Hillary sites ! But the Repubs supported both of those men and more, when they were caught with their hands in whatever kind of “cookie jar” existed for them.

    More on Don Seigilman, please.

  5. Mmmm. Green chile. Mmmm.
