Dear Readers: I have two items to share, which have a lot of entertainment value and are guide-markers as to where we are now in history.
The second sign is a video featuring the comedy team of Palin and Shatner is going viral, but it is too good not to share. If my beloved readers recall, it was an SNL-skit from the excreable Tina Fey upon which many citizens based their opinion of Governor Palin. After nearly a year of being led by the thin-skinned and humorless Obama, Palin’s bright-eyed and natural irreverence seems like a breath of fresh air. I think this video has as much potential to make Palin as SNL’s had to break her. Others agree with me, sensing that this is a turning point.
I am sending you over to The Anchoress for great commentary.The Anchoress once said that early primary wins for Obama have people “permission not to vote for Hillary.” I think this video, combined with the warm reception Palin is getting on her book tour, gives people permission to like her — despite the fact she makes the extreme left apoplectic.
Based on these signs, do I think the elite media and entertainment glitterati will continue shaping the attitudes and tastes of Americans? Do I think we will have to endure of progressive Congress and PC President for much longer? I will let my new comedy hero answer:
UPDATE: This is actually a third sign. The following is a report from a San Diego Union Tribune Reporter, Chris Reed, describing how he has evolved into a man-made global warming skeptic by carefully observing the behavior of California environmental regulators and green journalists: Air board lies fuel global warming doubts. MUT’s Money Quote:
Fifty-one weeks ago, I broke the story that the air board’s lead scientist on its study justifying the new rules on diesel emissions had lied about his academic credentials. I went on to report that air Nichols kept this from board members and that the lying scientist, who defended himself by offering a mail-order Ph.D. from a “university” associated with a fugitive pedophile, hadn’t even been fired.
One columnist (Lois Henry of The Bakersfield Californian) followed up on this incredibly juicy story. But not one single reporter – not until air board member John Telles learned of the cover-up and blasted it last month, making it impossible to ignore.
If you need proof that enviro beat journos are true believers whose work can’t be trusted, there it is. They were accomplices to Nichols’ cover-up. What other inconvenient truths are they covering up? We may never know.
