Good Night and Good Luck

This is a very difficult thing for me to say. But, after much thought, I've decided that this will be my last post at Falcon's Crest. My schedule and workload outside the blogosphere has significantly increased to a level where it's become incredibly difficult to continue. Since I wouldn't be able to give 100% on a consistent basis, it's best for me to let this endeavor go, out of fairness to you.

Don't worry, though. I haven't given up blogging all together. You can still find me with the great team at Hang Right Politics as a regular contributor. In addition, I'll leave this site up for one week before it disappears from the scene. This will give those bloggers, who've so kindly added me to their blogroll, time to make the necessary changes.

I've so enjoyed all the time we've shared on this blog. I've shared things that have been on my heart and mind. You've shared your thoughts and I'm grateful for every comment, every reader, every passer-by. It's been a true joy and honor serving you.

For those about to blog...I salute you. And to all my wonderful readers, good night and good luck.

There Are None So Blind as Those Who Will Not See

I wrote a post yesterday about a new left-leaning blog I’d come across called African-American Political Pundit. Here is yesterday's post.

Today, I read another post at AAPP referencing the Moderate Voice's, Anti-Semitism From the Left?, in which a fellow liberal says:
This concerns me as a Democrat, and as an observer that antisemitism today comes mostly from the left (Pat Buchanan excepted). Excerpted from elsewhere:When the House voted 410-8 in favor of a resolution “condemning the recent attacks against the State of Israel, holding terrorists and their state-sponsors accountable for such attacks, [and] supporting Israel’s right to defend itself.” Here’s a list of the 12 congressional reps. who declined to support Israel.

AAPP spend the rest of the post discounting the assertion that this is anti-semitism. Inrock, the writer, even says, “Could it be that some people just don’t approve of innocent people being killed?” Riiight. That’s why the members of the Congressional Black Caucus (and white liberal Democrats) either voted AGAINST supporting Israel or voted PRESENT. It was all those innocents that would be killed. None of them could possibly have a history of not supporting Israel. No! It couldn’t be that.

Remember, it’s see no evil, speak no evil, hear no evil.

It's Okay to Leave the Plantation

But for some of people, like African-American Political Pundit, it's not desirable. He proves this in his latest diatribe: George Bush Comes Down to the Quarters [WARNING: This post has profane language, referenced from Rude Pundit, in it] .

AAP shows that, although the plantation no longer exists, plantation menatlity does.

Bush and the NAACP

President Bush finally went to the NAA[L]CP - National Association for the Advancement of Liberal Colored People and gave a pretty good speech.
Bush said he viewed his speech as a chance to explain his convictions about equality. "I come from a family committed to civil rights," he said. "My faith tells me that we are all children of God - equally loved, equally cherished, equally entitled to the rights he grants us all."

The speech was only briefly interrupted, near the end, by a few stupid protesters who were escorted out. Overall, the president appeared to receive positive marks despite being in the lion's den.

So why did Bush go in the first place after having turned them down for 5 years? Well, [h]e accepted this year after new NAACP President Bruce Gordon, the first businessman to lead the nation's oldest civil rights organization, reached out to improve the relationship. Nice to see someone from thatorganizationn actually reach out to the president in a meaningful way.

COgirl at HRP and Lorie Byrd at Wizbang Politics have a lot more on this.

CNN - the Crescent News Network

In a post from a couple of days ago, Oak Leaf mentioned that radio talk show host Michael Savage has taken to calling CNN the Crescent News Network. After the story I heard this morning on the Laura Ingraham Show, Rush Limbaugh, and Hugh Hewit (who is fit to be tied), where CNN’s Nick Robertson got an “exclusive tour” by a Hezbollah “spokeman” of bombed out buildings, the name DEFINITELY fits.

This link allows you to listen to the propanganda…er, uh…interview that Robertson did. You won’t believe that even CNN has sunk this low.

Bush and the Sh*t Speech

Pruden on Politics has a great synopsis of what President Bush's "slip of the tongue" really means. Here's an excerpt:
Vulgarity is not nice, even in what both parties thought was a private
conversation between a president and a prime minister, but it gives us an
unexpected insight into what George W. really thinks. He obviously regards the
diplomatic niceties, taken with such seriousness by those with too much lace on
their panties, with the disdain everyone else does.

Please read the whole article. It's really great stuff.
