Campaign 2008 Rundown

The Democrats

Hillary Clinton is a lesbian kitten-killer. Which is it? Either she likes pussy or she doesn't.

John Edwards is cheating on his cancer-stricken wife. Maybe.

Barack Obama is a former druggie. And he may be black.

Dennis Kuchinich is controlled by space aliens. I believe his wife may be a Cylon.

Dennis found his encounter extremely moving. The smell of roses drew him out to my balcony where, when he looked up, he saw a gigantic triangular craft, silent, and observing him. It hovered, soundless, for ten minutes or so, and sped away with a speed he couldn’t comprehend. He said he felt a connection in his heart and heard directions in his mind.”

The Republicans

Rudy Guiliani was behind 911! And, even worse, he's gay.

Mitt Romney is gay. Really gay.

Fred Thompson is gay. Or bisexual.

Michael Hucklee is nuts.

"If you want to believe that you and your family came from apes, that's fine. I'll accept that," he said Friday. "I just don't happen to think that I did."
Tom Tancredo is nuts.

After Tancredo referred to Miami as a "third-world country" in November 2006, President Bush remarked, "What a nut. I'm just disappointed. He's from my own my party. He's a Republican. He doesn't represent my views."
Ron Paul is nuts.

Trent Lott, the Faerie Queen?

"The most important rule you can follow when taking people's money in exchange for sex is that—no matter what—their lives stay their own and whatever passes between the two of you remains private. Period."
I understand that Benjamin Nicholas is now denying any relationship with Trent Lott. But then he would, wouldn't he, according to his own "rule."

"I will continue to offer a great sense of confidentiality to the people I see. I have not, nor have I ever seen or had contact with Senator Trent Lott. It's as simple as that. It never happened."
The first sentence here raises the possibility that the rest of it is a lie to protect a client. I admire his professionalism.

Yet another test of Buell's Law: "If a prominent male political figure is accused of some sort of sexual misconduct or indiscretion--HE DID IT."

Update: BigHead DC posts the emails the escort says he never sent.

Update: From Down With Tyranny

I have it from a reliable DC source that "Lott would cruise the area gay bars whilst wearing a different toupée from his usual one. He apparently thought that was enough of a disguise."
I think AmbienteG nails it:

El chapero, temeroso de perder clientela en la capital del reino, escribe en su blog que nunca ha tenido una relación con el recién dimitido político al tiempo que defiende la discreción en su trabajo.

A meeting of the minds

The Times mentions the Hillary/Huma rumors which is all it takes for Drudge to run with it. This is about as far as this story will go unless some evidence surfaces that it is actually true, which is unlikely.

Right-wing radical and Kennedy denouncer Thomas Vallee, had arranged to be off work for JFK's visit, Vallee, an expert marksman, was arrested with an M1 rifle, a handgun and 3,000 rounds of ammo. But then there was the phone call to federal agents from a motel manager concerning what was she saw in a room rented by two Cuban nationals.

"Had seen lying on the bed several automatic rifles with telescopic sights, with an outline of the route that President Kennedy was supposed to take in Chicago that would bring him past that building," said former Secret Service agent Abraham Bolden.

Washington Post reporter Jefferson Morley has a new Kennedy assassination article in Playboy: The Man Who Didn't Talk

Jeff also has a new book coming out: Our Man in Mexico: Winston Scott and the Hidden History of the CIA

Hillary and Huma on video together

Not the rumored sex video, however. (Rumors have to start somewhere.) Huma attacked by American flags. May be some symbolism there. About half-way down the page.

Sunday Religion Corner: Djinn Energy

A leading Pakistani nuclear scientist who was questioned by the Pakistani government last week concerning his ties to the Taliban is known as a proponent of "Islamic science," a weird hybrid of scientific terminology and Islamic lore.

Sultan Bashiruddin Mehmood is a pioneer in the development of nuclear technology in Pakistan. But in 1980, as a senior director of the Pakistan Atomic Energy Commission, he "recommended that djinns [or genies], being fiery creatures, ought to be tapped as a free source of energy. By this means, a final solution to Pakistan's energy problems would be found."

This episode was recounted by Pakistani physicist Pervez Hoodbhoy in his enlightening book "Islam and Science: Religious Orthodoxy and the Battle for Rationality" (Zed Books, 1991).

In a Wall Street Journal article on Islamic science (13 September 1988), Dr. Mehmood noted that King Solomon had harnessed energy from djinns. "I think that if we develop our souls we can develop communications with them," he said.

The person who is certain, and who claims divine warrant for his certainty, belongs now to the infancy of our species. It may be a long farewell, but it has begun and, like all farewells, should not be protracted.

--Christopher Hitchens

A religion is never "nobler" than when it has come to the point of taking itself for a superstition and witnessing its own eclipse with detachment.

Letter by Oswald Is Found With Late Senator’s Papers

The box had sat untouched in the attic of a Washington house until recently, when the sale of the house forced some cleaning out, some poking around in long-overlooked places.

Inside the box was a manila file folder headed: “Lee Harvey Oswald.”

Inside the folder was a handwritten letter that Oswald had sent from Russia, complaining that the Soviet Union would not grant him an exit visa to the United States. It was addressed to Senator John Tower of Texas, who had lived in the house with his second wife in the 1980s.

Noted Researcher George Michael Evica Dies

After fighting with brave determination against lung and brain cancer, George Michael Evica has left this life to begin the journey into the next. He died on Saturday, November 10, 2007. His loving wife Alycia held his hand.

George Michael devoted his professional life to maintaining a harmonious balance between learning and teaching. He earned his B.A. at Case Western Reserve and his M.A. at Columbia University. Before serving as an Associate Professor of English at the University of Hartford from 1964 to 1992, he taught at Brooklyn College, Wagner College, Columbia University, and San Francisco State University.

History will remember George Michael as one of the most honored and important of the so-called second generation of scholars devoted to discovering the truth about the assassination of John Fitzgerald Kennedy and effecting justice in the wake of the president’s passing. He authored two books: And We Are All Mortal (1975) stands as an invaluable reference for Kennedy researchers; A Certain Arrogance (2006) expands upon that groundbreaking work by exploring the manipulation by United States intelligence agencies and other entities of religious groups for political ends.

Waterboarding is a torture technique. Period.

As a former Master Instructor and Chief of Training at the US Navy Survival, Evasion, Resistance and Escape School (SERE) in San Diego, California I know the waterboard personally and intimately. SERE staff were required undergo the waterboard at its fullest. I was no exception.
Waterboarding is not a simulation. Unless you have been strapped down to the board, have endured the agonizing feeling of the water overpowering your gag reflex, and then feel your throat open and allow pint after pint of water to involuntarily fill your lungs, you will not know the meaning of the word.

Waterboarding is a controlled drowning that, in the American model, occurs under the watch of a doctor, a psychologist, an interrogator and a trained strap-in/strap-out team. It does not simulate drowning, as the lungs are actually filling with water. There is no way to simulate that. The victim is drowning. How much the victim is to drown depends on the desired result (in the form of answers to questions shouted into the victim’s face) and the obstinacy of the subject. A team doctor watches the quantity of water that is ingested and for the physiological signs which show when the drowning effect goes from painful psychological experience, to horrific suffocating punishment to the final death spiral.

Plan 9 from outer space

Throughout the 1950s CIA files clearly document an explosion of activity by US intelligence and military bodies concerned with studying every possible implication for the US, and other Western democracies, of UFOs. The phenomenon, so adored by the cinematic world, was reflected in the CIA's fixations. Indeed, while highly educated CIA employees experimented by giving each other surprise LSD trips in 1953, there were others, in other parts of the agency, dealing with a flood of UFO reports.
Intriguingly, the unclassified documents show that within the CIA, there was an uber-intelligence group called ONE, created by a CIA director, General William Bedell Smith. His tenure spanned the period between October 1950 and January 1953. These documents confirm that ONE was concerned with UFOs.

In October, Dorothy confided to "What's My Line?" make-up man Carmen Gebbia that she was "all excited" about going to New Orleans to meet a source whom she did not know, but would recognize. She said it was "very cloak-and-daggerish" and would yield details about the assassination. Gebbia told Lee Israel that Dorothy "said to me several times, 'If it's the last thing I do, I'm going to break this case.' "

Her other hairdresser, Charles Simpson, recalls, "She even of her own volition...'I used to share things with you...but after I have found out now what I know, if the wrong people knew what I know, it would cost me my life.' "

Jerusalem Post reports that al Jazeera reported that US Air Force struck Syrian nuclear site using nuclear weapons

The September 6 raid over Syria was carried out by the US Air Force, the Al-Jazeera Web site reported Friday. The Web site quoted Israeli and Arab sources as saying that two strategic US jets armed with tactical nuclear weapons carried out an attack on a nuclear site under construction.

The sources were quoted as saying that Israeli F-15 and F-16 jets provided cover for the US planes.

The sources added that each US plane carried one tactical nuclear weapon and that the site was hit by one bomb and was totally destroyed.
A look at al Jazeera's website and googling finds no such article on al Jazeera nor any dead links to such an article. What is going on here? Was a story posted and then quickly pulled? Perhaps a google cache will show up later.

Hot Air ties the story to this Spectator report:

Even more curious is that far from pushing the Syrians and Israelis to war, both seem determined to put a lid on the affair. One month after the event, the absence of hard information leads inexorably to the conclusion that the implications must have been enormous.

That was confirmed to The Spectator by a very senior British ministerial source: ‘If people had known how close we came to world war three that day there’d have been mass panic. Never mind the floods or foot-and-mouth — Gordon really would have been dealing with the bloody Book of Revelation and Armageddon.’

Unbelievable Democratic Presidential Candidate Sex Story

Yes, it's true. Dennis Kucinich, the UFO candidate, is having sex with this woman , who is not only hot but has a tongue ring.
Clinton Sex Scandal Brewing? (would anyone be surprised?)

It started with a Ron Rosenbaum post Shocking Inside DC Scandal Rumor

So I was down in DC this past weekend and happened to run into a well-connected media person, who told me flatly, unequivocally that “everyone knows” The LA Times was sitting on a story, all wrapped up and ready to go about what is a potentially devastating sexual scandal involving a leading Presidential candidate.
Rosenbaum doesn't say anything about who the scandal involves, except that it is not John Edwards. Most speculation thus far seems to involve the Clintons, either Bill's extra-marital affairs (but would that even be news?) or Hillary's alleged involvement with aide Huma Abedin. Hits to this blog doubled yesterday due to a Freeper linking to a past Hillary/Huma post on this blog. Today half the hits to this blog are from people looking for more on Hillary and Huma.
Luke Ford offers a good overview with lots of links in A Dark Unseen Scandal Star?
My dialogue with my sources left me with no doubt Tuesday night that Hillary’s made passes at women and that Huma Abedin is Hillary’s most likely source of romantic and sexual love.
Pam Geller of Atlas Shrugs is going with Hillary and Huma on this one: Hillary's Lesbian Affair with Muslim Aide Not even a question mark, Pam? Personally, my guess it that's its Bill.

Which isn't stopping Doc Weasel from having a lot of fun with this story.

Update: the inevitable wingnut is Huma Abedin an agent of Saudi intelligence? post
