Jeremiah Wright and black liberation theology.

Excellent, excellent article, by Spengler on Jeremiah Wright and black liberation theology. h/t Lisa Schiffren, the Corner.

What strikes me is how similar this theology is to Islam. One can easily see how both derived from the Black Power movement of the 60's. There is no surprise then, that Jeremiah Wright has honored Louis Farrakhan. There is nothing "Christian" about black liberation theology, except to use Jesus Christ as some sort of Messiah figure, but a Jesus Christ completely foreign to history.

As for Obama? There is no way he can get out of this, in my book. Either he shares Wright's theology or he is an opportunist, willing to allow his children to sit under such teaching, in order to further his political career. Rev. Wright's church is not the only one in Chicago to have chosen from. To stay for 20 years says something about Barack Obama. None of which is good, in my book.

"Is misogyny worse than racism, or is racism worse than misogyny?"

The fabulous Mark Steyn this morning.

Maybe. But a Democrat nominating process that’s a self-torturing satire of upscale liberal guilt confusions will at least give us a laugh along the way.

According to The Name on Your Face

Fidel Castro announced today that he would not seek a new term as Cuba’s president, citing concerns that at 81, it may be difficult for him to serve the full, constitutionally-mandated 49 year term.

Geldof and Bono

This is why I respect men like Bob Geldof and Bono, though I probably disagree with them on almost every political issue. They are not anti Bush like so many in the music business. They recognize that Bush is a decent guy with compassion and not Hitler re-incarnate. It is because of this that I, at least, are willing to listen to what they have to say about their cause.
Here's all you really need from the article.

Mr. Bush, said Mr. Geldof, "has done more than any other president so far."


"This is the triumph of American policy really," he said. "It was probably unexpected of the man. It was expected of the nation, but not of the man, but both rose to the occasion."


"What's in it for [Mr. Bush]? Absolutely nothing," Mr. Geldof said.


Mr. Geldof said that the president has failed "to articulate this to Americans" but said he is also "pissed off" at the press for their failure to report on this good news story.


"You guys didn't pay attention," Geldof said to a group of reporters from all the major newspapers.

BRAVO


The three men who plotted to kill the Danish Cartoonist, Kurt Westergaard, have been arrested and the offending newspaper has republished the cartoons. Good for them! I didn't know anyone in Europe had the courage anymore.

McCain it is.

So, it's going to be John McCain. Now it's time for Huck's ego to go home. Romney proved at CPAC that he's a classy guy who puts the party above himself. He'd make a good VP (though Thompson would be better ;-)

Is this the man to save the GOP????

AMEN BROTHER!

Bill Kristol on how conservatives ought to react if McCain becomes the GOP nominee.

But I’d say this to them: When the primaries are over, if McCain has won the day, don’t sulk and don’t sit it out. Don’t pretend there’s no difference between a candidate who’s committed to winning in Iraq and a Democratic nominee who embraces defeat. Don’t tell us that it doesn’t matter if the next president voted to confirm John Roberts and Samuel Alito for the Supreme Court, or opposed them. Don’t close your eyes to the difference between pro-life and pro-choice, or between resistance to big government and the embrace of it.

Read the rest here.

One issue girl?

McCain, huh? I really, really don't like the fact that he's likely to be the GOP nominee. However, I also don't like the pile on from Rush, Glenn Beck, Hannity and everyone at NRO. It leaves a bad taste in my mouth. I think they are probably going to end up encouraging people to stay home or vote 3rd party and ensure Hillary or Obama are elected. As much as I do not like the idea of McCain as a Republican president, I'd take him any day over those two.

McCain is not conservative (just as Huckabee isn't conservative). I wonder if these same people would be up in arms if Giuliani had gotten the nomination. He's not conservative either. Would they be more for a fiscal conservative and a social liberal? There's that divide that Huckabee has been able to exploit. Social vs. fiscal conservatives. Which is more important?

A year ago I was a one issue voter. The war of terror was the only thing I really cared about, and so I was a Rudy girl. I had since changed that opinion with a couple of decent candidates who were true conservatives (ok, one but Fred never had a chance). Now I guess I'll have to be back to being a one issue girl.
