OBSERVATIONS ON THE HALF-SKULL
Yes, the President had some good lines at the White House Correspondents Dinner Saturday, but weren't some of them a bit too revealing? I get the feeling he's really believing more of what adoring "journalists" say about him. He really seems to think he's the answer to, well, everything..... At the same event, entertainer Wanda Sykes went overboard in attacking Limbaugh (while President Obama smiled in apparent agreement), making comparisons between Rush and Bin Ladin, citing treason- then hoping El Rushbo's "kidneys fail". Such a class act. Imagine the flap if a conservative leveled the same criticism.... Here in California the Santa Barbara fires are easing (thank God) and Sacramento bureaucrats are cranking up the last minute pre-election guilt campaign regarding the latest ballot Propositions (May 19 special election). You know they're worried about passage of the lame band-aid props when they trot out firefighters to tell Californians that fire (and police) will be gone and you're on you own.. unless you vote "our way" (aka "the union way")... In San Diego, hotel tycoon Doug Manchester is softening his pro-traditional marriage stance by caving into the gay lobbying groups that have boycotted his hotels. Why the boycott? Because he gave his own money, legally to support Prop 8 and traditional marriage in last fall's election. Now Manchester is trying to make a deal with the other side by offering the same amount he gave to pro-Prop 8 forces ($125,000 in cash and trade). Message to pro-traditional values voters: Give up. The word from the gay lobby to Manchester: It will never be enough... nice try. In wake of this, anyone who took a stand for one-man, one-woman marriage in the Golden State states to get even more demonization. Some who only gave $100 to the "yes on 8"stance have also had to withstand boycotts.
