The Dems Debate War, UFOs and the Federal Government’s Conspiracy against UFOs
He is one honest man. He is a man of courage. And yes, although it is difficult to believe, he is a presidential politician. He believes in UFOs because he has seen one, and he is not afraid to admit it. While Hillary Clinton was speaking double-talk about one political issue after another, Dennis Kucinich never waffled and stood firm. When asked, he did not deny what he had seen. Whether you believe in UFOs or don’t believe in them, or whether you are an agnostic on the matter as Barrack Obama claimed to be, you have got to believe in Dennis Kucinich as the most honest Democrat of the gaggle.
Why the governor of Roswell, New Mexico immediately afterwards came on TV with Chris Matthews and sided with Congressman Kucinich, only his shrink knows for sure. Although Governor Richardson has never seen a UFO himself, he claimed that was only because of the massive federal government cover-up and conspiracy of the Bush regime to keep UFOs away from his New Mexico deserts.
WHOA – Katie. This is not your grandpa’s Democrat party. This is the Kucinich – Richardson UFO Wing. When Miss Hillary was asked by the media if one can now assume that Dennis Kucinich is nuts because he saw a UFO, the good lady Senator sharply replied: “of course not! Why assume he’s nuts because he thinks he saw a UFO, when there are so many other good reasons to think he’s nuts?”
And what does Dennis Kucinich think about President George W. Bush? Kucinich Thinks Bush Is The Real Whacko and Questions Bush’s Mental Health. HA!

Can there be such a thing as “too much” genealogical sleuthing? Apparently so from what I have been reading at CNN and Chicago’s Suntimes.com.
It has now been discovered that Barack Obama and George “W” Bush are 11th cousins. That is because, notwithstanding the incredible differences between their names, the two share the same great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great grandparents — Samuel Hinckley and Sarah Soole Hinckley of 17th century Massachusetts. Perhaps you do too. I do not, as none of my people ever set foot in Massachusetts, but I cannot say the same for my husband. Perhaps I will find that my children are relatives too. And believe it or not, Barack Obama is even kin to the first President Bush, the George Herbert Walker Bush.
However, it gets even more fantastic than those Busheys and Obama cousins. Mrs. Vice President, Lynn Cheney, is writing a book that covers the genealogy of her husband’s Cheney family and low and behold she discovered that Barack Obama is a cousin of her husband too. That is Vice President Dick Cheney and Obama are both descended from a Maryland Huguenot named Mareen Duvall, a 17th century immigrant from France.
Who knew that those two were French? All this time we’ve been thinking that Obama was African-American and Cheney a Cowboy-American. You know what that means all you Duvalls back there in Maryland? You’re related to them both; you cannot take sides.
Mareen and Susannah Duvall’s son married the granddaughter of another immigrant, Richard Cheney, who arrived in Maryland from England in the 1650s. The vice president, Richard B. Cheney, is a namesake of that long ago immigrant. Barack Obama is not, even though both men are direct descendants of the same Richard Cheney. Barack Obama himself was totally nonplussed when told of his newly found kinfolk on the other side of the political spectrum. “Every family has a black sheep,” said a spokesman for Obama, without explaining exactly what he meant.
And yes, President George W. Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney are also cousins, albeit from a totally different ancestor. This demonstrates what can happen when a person discovers all the ancestors that he had no idea were his forebears. They are others’ forebears too, and there is nothing one can do to change that.
Certainly Hillary Clinton is wise to that factoid. Already her minions are pushing the story of Obama’s “scandalous” genealogy, advertising that “a vote for Barrack is but a vote for his cousin Dick” whom he will surely appoint as Secretary of State as soon as he is elected president.
The new campaign mantra of Mrs. President Bill Clinton: Vote for Hillary – she has no blood ties to the Bushes, to Cheney nor to HER choice for Secretary of State – Bill Clinton.

Algore – Superhero of Apple.com
It is enough to make me want to throw my new Ipod out of a twenty story building, if I could find one. I went to Apple.com today and this was what greeted me on their front page – Algore, Apple’s Super Hero and Peace Prize Winner.
This is the sight that greeted viewers of the front page of Apple.com today, 13 October 2007. I went there looking for accessories for my new Ipod. I must be nuts for having purchased an Apple product in the first place. Apparently Apple.com is more interested in making political statements than manufacturing and selling their merchandise.
Yes, Algore has put his heart and soul these last few years into telling the proletariat how to live. He lights, heats and air-conditions his mansion while telling the rest of us to buy expensive light bulbs and wear sweaters. He scolds less affluent consumers for driving mini SUVs, while he flies around the globe in his own jet plane. Go ahead and burst with pride, Apple.com, as your man is now in the same lofty “Peace Prize Winner” hero league as the likes of Yasser Arafat.
Saint Algore – Winner of an Emmy, an Oscar and now the Nobel Peace Prize. One could expect no less from the inventor of the Intenet and the inspiration for “Love Story,” could one? However, … can one expect the sainted Algore to also whip Saint Hillary’s (***) rear end in the Democratic nomination for United States president?

According to a recent survey by “Right Wing News“, these are the persons considered “right of center” who are intensely disliked by the “right of center” bloggers. Kerfuffles’ opinion was not sought, therefore I will offer it gratis. Number one for Kerfuffles would have been Bill O’Reilly (How can anyone, including Fox News, find him entertaining?). Number two (; would have been James Dobson, number three Ann Coulter and number four Pat Buchanan. “14) Lindsey Graham (6) – 14) George W. Bush (6) – 14) Mitt Romney (6)” would not have made Kerfuffles’ list. The remaining “shunned ones”, with the exception of John McCain, are ciphers. It is surprising that some consider Andrew Sullivan to be “right of center.”
Without further ado, here are the right-of-center bloggers’ least favorite people on the right with the number of votes beside of each selection in parentheses:
18) Ted Stevens (4)
18) Olympia Snowe (4)
18) Mel Martinez (4)
18) Sean Hannity (4)
18) Lincoln Chafee (4)
17) Bill O’Reilly (5)
14) Lindsey Graham (6)
14) George W. Bush (6)
14) Mitt Romney (6)
12) Arnold Schwarzenegger (9)
12) Rudy Giuliani (9)
(8) Andrew Sullivan (11)
(8) Chuck Hagel (11)
(8) James Dobson (11)
(8) Ann Coulter (11)
6) Arlen Specter (12)
6) Pat Robertson (12)
4) Larry Craig (13)
4) Michael Savage (13)
3) John McCain (17)
2) Pat Buchanan (18)
1) Ron Paul (23)

In a country originally settled by religious extremists from Europe, there are apparently Americans who are espousing the same type of hatred of other Christian religions that raged after the Protestant Reformation centuries ago. Who are these religious bigots and what is the religion they hate so?
The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS Church or Mormons) is the only truly American religion that has survived and flourished since the …
A brand new national poll of Christian conservatives reveals that a large majority of them fear American Mormons more than they fear murdering terrorists. A recent political poll asked evangelicals: “Would you be more or less likely to vote for Mitt Romney if you knew him to be a Mormon or a radical Islamist?” The poll found that Evangelicals en masse would vote for a terrorist for U.S. president long before they would ever vote a Mormon into the highest office in the land. After all, they explain, a terrorist can be saved from his wayward ways, but Mormons are progeny of Lucifer.
Calling the Kettle Black
Janet Langhart Cohen was giving her impression of Mitt Romney, and the only criticism she could find was his religion. “I hate to talk about anybody’s faith, but …” then she did exactly that.
