Vote "No" in Tennessee Judicial Retention "Election"
Bill Hobbs reports that lawyer and Republican Dewayne Bunch suggests that Tennesseeans vote "no" in this year's judicial retention vote. Tennesseans should be given a choice with respect to its judges. Our state constitution requires an election, not a retention vote. Democrats claim that they want the people's voice to be heard, but they are on the forefront of making sure that special interest control the judiciary. You poor, ignorant saps are too stupid to pick a judge. Better leave that to the professionals. Or better yet, vote "no" on the retention vote and make a statement about the "Tennessee Plan."

Who will be rioting in the streets?
If Obama loses, who will be rioting in the streets? If McCain loses, who will be rioting in the streets? Austin Hill addresses somewhat less than half of the story here. Envision a situation where we have another Bush v. Gore, where the Supreme Court tells a state to follow its own laws (which is actually what the case did, despite media and leftist opinion to the contrary). Suppose the result of that situation is that McCain is elected in a very close vote. Will their be riots and other violence? Of course, the very mention of something like this is grounds for being branded as a racist from the typical race-baiters.

Obama thinks teachers are more important than parents
Geez. In case you needed one more reason to not vote for Obama, in his speech to the American Federation of Teachers, Obama had this to say:
Real change is finally giving our kids everything they need to have a fighting chance in today’s world. That begins with recognizing that the single most important factor in determining a child’s achievement is not the color of their skin or where they come from; it’s not who their parents are or how much money they have. It’s who their teacher is.
First, Mr. Obama wants to "give" the kids everything. Apparently, there is no need to earn anything when the nanny state can provide it. At first, I thought the mere suggestion that a teacher was more important than a parent to be complete poppycock. However, I realize that I was wrong. In Obama's world of indoctrinating children to be good subjects, the teacher is more important than the parent. My bad.

Another Echoed Phrase
In following Instapundit's link to Althouse's post entitled "Obama echoes the phrase that made me turn against Kerry," we learn that both Kerry and Obama have echoed the "you're not listening" approach in dealing with critical questions. While I see her point, the I expect Obama to "echo" another famous Kerry phrase at some point in the near future. Kerry version: "I was for the war before I was against it." Future Obama version: "I was against the war before I was for it."

Government on Food Waste
You better eat whatever is on your plate, othewise the government might have something to say about it in Great Britain. Of course, if you eat what's on your plate, you might become obese, another problem that the bureaucrats think they ought to regulate. I suppose the only way to reconcile these two problems is to increase taxes on food, which is what they really want anyway.

Nuclear Material in Iraq
After the removal of 500 metric tons of nuclear material from Iraq, the Associated Press has this to say. " " Well, nevermind, they don't anyone to quote them. Accordingly, I will paraphrase what I believe to be the typical mindset of the AP. The AP suggests that the yellowcake issue is one of the troubling issues for the administration. In fact, it is just the opposite. The yellowcake issue is one of the many troubling issues for the media that has been parroting the "Bush lied, people died" meme. The fact that yellowcake has been found and moved out of Iraq only serves to bolster the original case for the war and that is a big problem for big media and its fellow travelers.
