Sarah Palin is Magic (UPDATE)

It’s gone from darkly humorous to painful. Yes, Sarah Palin is doubling down on her idiotic Paul Revere history lesson, because she is never wrong.

John McCain’s Greatest Legacy isn’t going to run for president, but no, she’s never going away. Ever.

(though Howard Dean’s Jedi Mind Trick is commendable)

UPDATE: FYI, the “gotcha question” asked by the liberal media that prompted her original answer was “what have you seen so far today, and what are you going to take away from your visit”.

The collectivist media will stop at nothing to destroy her, I say.

This one is especially awesome and freedomy. Here she is giving a history lesson on Paul Revere:

McCreary and Pulaski Co. going bankrupt for Jesus

What happens when two Kentucky counties fight a 12-year battle to save souls by posting Jesus Rules and wind up owing $456,881 to the Godless ACLU when they fail?

Well, they fight over who’s going to pay the bill, that’s what.

Though Stephens had been previously advised by another Liberty Counsel attorney that the organization may help in fundraising efforts, Staver told the Lexington Herald-Leader last week that his group’s supporters would not likely donate monies that would ultimately go to the ACLU.

*****

“When the issue of fundraising was brought up, Mr. Staver said he would have to discuss the matter with David Carr and Herschel Walker,” Judge Stephens said.

Carr runs King of Kings Radio in Somerset and Walker pastors Hopewell Baptist Church in Corbin. Together they organized the Ten Commandments Advancement Fund to help cover expenses related to defending the case. In February, Carr indicated to the Commonwealth Journal that the fund could not be used to pay a judgment to ACLU.

Judge Stephens said yesterday he has received correspondence from Carr taking issue with Stephens’ comments to the Herald-Leader.

“To ask them [Liberty Counsel] to Fund Raise for the courts is extremely ungrateful and selfish,” Carr wrote, calling Liberty County “a tremendous friend to the Fiscal Courts.”

But Judge Stephens maintains that he only mentioned it to the reporter because a Liberty Counsel attorney had first told him it was a possibility. The judge added that the county does not have money in its budget to pay the debt and, even if it did, the county has been threatened with another lawsuit if taxpayer dollars are used — further reducing the local government’s options.

“I didn’t intend to be disrespectful to anybody,” Judge Stephens said. “I didn’t say anything negative about the Liberty Counsel or the ACLU.”

Former Judge-Executive Jimmie Greene, who was in office when the lawsuit was filed and assisted in fundraising for the Ten Commandments Advancement Fund, told the Record that he would be disappointed if Liberty Counsel maintains its stance, considering how the community rallied to help defend the case.

“Liberty Counsel represented us and represented us well,” Greene said. “It’s upsetting to think when it’s down to the wire, they would ride away and leave us behind.”

I love it when fundies fight among themselves about who’s going to get the bill for their ridiculous and unnecessary PR scam.

Ken Ham and Steve Beshear, this is the Ghost of Christmas Future!

Huckabee and O’Reilly defend the Greatest Educational Cartoons Ever

As we mentioned two weeks ago, Mike Huckabee has just launched a new “educational” company that seeks to teach children through cartoons that Ronald Reagan single-handedly saved America from the blacks, the Disco, the terrorists, the Russians, and maybe in a future chapter the alien invasion. As you can see in the videos, they certainly meet their goal of being “historically accurate and unbiased education”.

And Bill O’Reilly certainly agrees that these wonderful videos will help protect the children of America from secular fascists who hate America:

As Huckabee explains, 91% of liberal parents said that they would show these videos to their children. I suppose it’s never too early to teach the kiddies how to spot propaganda.

Even Reason Magazine ripping Rand Paul on his "slavery" idiocy

Even Rand Paul’s biggest libertarian fanboys over at Reason Magazine are stating the obvious: his rant on Wednesday about universal health care being like slavery and bringing about police kidnapping doctors was just plain stupid.

“comparing slavery to anything short of, well, slavery, strikes me in the best case as wildly, off-puttingly inaccurate.

*****

Could slaves free themselves by changing professions? Do doctors in Switzerland get taken away at gunpoint? To treat the analogy with technical seriousness, even setting aside (as if you could) the colossal weight of America’s most lasting shame, is to render it ridiculous, in my opinion.

Every once in a while I find myself in total agreement with Reason. And their description of Rand as ridiculous and wildly, off-puttingly inaccurate kind of strikes a chord with me, I must say.

Maybe the collectivists have gotten to them, too???

Mike Huckabee launches the greatest educational videos in human history

OK, this sounds great…

Mike Huckabee continues to spark speculation about whether he will get into the 2012 presidential race, but for now, the former Arkansas governor is getting into the educational cartoon field.

Huckabee has launched a new educational company called Learn Our History that aims to get kids excited about studying the nation’s past.

The company’s first product is an animated film series – available LearnOurHistory.com – that follows the adventures of the Time Travel Academy, a group of young friends who use a homemade time machine to travel back in time to relive America’s history.

“America’s youth aren’t excited about our past because they’re being taught history in a way that minimizes what has made America a beacon of hope around the world for over 200 years,” Huckabee, a Fox News host, said in a statement.

“It’s impossible to overestimate the importance of giving our children a historically accurate and unbiased education that allows kids today to enjoy and understand our history, and build their pride in our great nation,” he said.

… but you HAVE to watch it. Zombie Reagan saved America from the blacks, the Disco, the terrorists, the Russians, and maybe in a future chapter the alien invasion. Watch and enjoy this “historically accurate and unbiased education” from the Time Travel Academy and Mike Huckabee:

Bachmann says Democrats bringing on the new Tax Holocaust (UPDATE)

Definitely presidential material:

In a speech to New Hampshire Republicans, Bachmann recounted learning about a horrific time in history as a child — the Holocaust — and wondering if her mother did anything to stop it. She said she was shocked to hear that many Americans weren’t aware that millions of Jews had died until after World War II ended.

Bachmann said the next generation will ask similar questions about what their elders did to prevent them from facing a huge tax burden.

“I tell you this story because I think in our day and time, there is no analogy to that horrific action,” she said, referring to the Holocaust. “But only to say, we are seeing eclipsed in front of our eyes a similar death and a similar taking away. It is this disenfranchisement that I think we have to answer to.”

Yes, there is no analogy, except the one I’m about to use after this comma.

If she gets in, yes I do think she has a chance of winning Iowa.

I wonder if this has something to do with America’s New Hitler?

UPDATE: Oh, and from the comments we learn that Mike Huckebee checked and raised her later that night. It’s a race to the top in the 2011 Republican Party, I tell ya.

Is anyone even the least bit shocked that Donald Trump’s barrage of Birther lunacy in the media over the past couple of weeks has vaulted him near the top of the GOP field for president next year? Here the latest WSJ/NBC poll on the GOP primary:

Romney- 21%
Trump- 17%
Huckabee- 17%
Gingrich- 11%
Palin- 10%
Pawlenty- 6%
Bachmann(!)- 5%
Santorum- 3%
Barbour- 1%

The base is eating it up.

Also, where is Father Liberty in that poll? The statist media is obviously to afraid to include him.

Ken Ham makes it into peer reviewed journal!

Let’s see how he and the Creation Museum fared:

When I visited, I discovered no way to break off the tour at any point prior to Consummation. About two hours in, I started to get claustrophobic; the spaces seemed to get tighter and darker as I walked the eschatological narrative. I decided to step away–just as racism and crime were being blamed on Eve’s taste for forbidden fruit. I tried to find an exit to the cafeteria (“Noah’s Cafe”) so I might nourish my weakening spirit. To my horror, I discovered that one cannot actually exit anywhere along the pathway. The herding is so absolute that when you attempt to backtrack, you find that the doors you’ve been entering have no handles on the opposite side. Like someone in a haunted house, you must complete the entire circuit.

Uh oh. This doesn’t sound promising.

It’s not quite accurate to call this evangelical center a “museum.” It contains almost no “information,” unless you count as information speculations on how Noah kept dinosaurs on the ark. It offers no new observations about nature, unless you think that inferring a Designer can be called observational. Unlike most other nature museums, it has no “research” component whatsoever. When I asked Mark Looy, vice president for AiG ministry relations, where the research labs and archive collections were located, he confessed that he didn’t understand the question. “This is a museum,” he finally said, chuckling.

Ouch. Maybe it gets better?

When you finally spill out of this ball of confusion into the gigantic gift shop, you become keenly aware of the unholy mixing of piety and profit. Someone is making a fortune on this stuff. The museum speaks directly to the anxieties of a fearful subculture that sees its family values under attack by a rising secular tide. The visitors at the Creation Museum feel like David, facing the secular giant Goliath. They see themselves as underdogs of righteousness who’ve chosen an origin story that’s different from the science story. Like bad reality television that drives up ratings with violent and abusive scenarios, the museum drives up profits by demonizing science. The search for meaningful origin stories is understandable, of course, but the museum’s suggestion that science causes nihilism and racism is inexcusable.

Oh well. Ken Ham doesn’t need those fancy elitists, anyway. The Intellectual Child Abuse-for-Profit industry is humming along just fine for Ham without those eggheads.
