AL Simpson takes on his critics (via @drudge_report)

by thoughtfulconservative

Wonder if Simpson will be criticized as widely as @SarahPalinUSA was yesterday…

I basically agree with most of what Simpson says

Amplify’d from www.trib.com

But Simpson said that while every interest group that testified
before his committee agreed that the mounting federal debt is a
national tragedy, they would then talk about why government funding
to their area of interest shouldn’t be touched.

“We had the greatest generation — I think this is the greediest
generation,” he said.

All this hubbub isn’t a surprise to Simpson, given how
politically polarized the country is these days.

“You don’t want to listen to the right and the left – the
extremes,” he said. “You don’t want to listen to Keith Olbermann
and Rush Babe [Limbaugh] and Rachel Minnow [sic] or whatever that
is, and Glenn Beck. They’re entertainers. They couldn’t govern
their way out of a paper sack — from the right or the left. But
they get paid a lot of money from you and advertisers — thirty,
fifty million a year — to work you over and get you juiced up with
emotion, fear, guilt, and racism. Emotion, fear, guilt, and
racism.

Reason number 1,352 why I don’t watch MSDNC

by thoughtfulconservative

Read it at Politico.com

In not dignifying at least the office if not the man, the famed MSDNC duo of Olbermann and Matthews lose dignity themselves. Of course, they had none in the first place.

They also lose dignity for their network, but I guess the network bigwigs are finding their niche as evidenced by the recent addition of Air America’s Rachel Maddow.

President Bush has more class than both of these “pundits” combined.

Quick Hits 11/14/2008

Here’s more stuff I wanted to blog on but didn’t get to this week.

Chris Lufter was an able leader of the Waukesha Taxpayers League. It will be impossible to replace her. Hopefully she gets to enjoy her family now.

Remember how after the I-35 bridge in Minneapolis collapse, many shrilly indicted the infrastructure. I’m not saying everything’s rosy but, Federal investigators say design error, too much weight doomed I-35W bridge.

Holding the first of a two-day hearing before it releases final findings and recommendations, the National Transportation Safety Board said Thursday the collapse in Minneapolis was caused by a fatal design error. The error allowed an accumulation of weight added to the bridge over its 40-year lifespan — plus the weight associated with a new construction project — to finally topple it, killing 13 and injuring 145. [Emphasis mine.]

H-1B Visa Reform Takes Shape to Address Fraud, Procedural Nightmares

The agency responsible for granting H-1B visa applications plans to tighten up its procedures for vetting and approving the applications in the wake of a report indicating as many as 20 percent of the applications may be fraudulent or technically flawed.

Immigration needs to be fixed. Soon.

This story by Dan Shelley, former news director of WTMJ radio, sounds like the sour grapes we’ve heard from former Bush Adminstration officials (Scott MacClellan, I’m looking at you). Here’s a response from Charlie Sykes that Milwaukee Magazine should have offered before it ran an obvious hit piece.

If the Fairness Doctrine makes a comeback like Chuck Schumer and many on the left wish, although some say it won’t happen, will conservatives get equal time with The Washington Post and MSDNC’s Chris “My Job Is To Make Obama Presidency a Success” Matthews and Keith Olbermann?
