Late Night Music Club feat. Skinny Puppy

Socio-Poilitcal activism in music is nothing new, but Skinny Puppy had their own special way of bringing it to the viewer through very powerful and often extremely graphic imagery. One could not walk away from a SP concert without knowing their standpoint on an array of subject matter from Right Wing Extremism, Animal Cruelty, and the growing power of the Military Industrial Complex.

If you only heard Puppy once, you would immediately recognize them the second time. Their fusion of dark vocal effects, metal, electronica, and noise core took the world of industrial music by storm during it's infancy.

I was never lucky enough to see Puppy in their prime in the late 80s and early 90s, but did manage to get the closest thing - their Candian reunion concert DVD The The Greater Wrong Of The Right.

Puppy's final album with the late D.R. Gottel was quite the departure from some of their earlier work, but the images and messages were still there and still distinct as when the Back and Forth tape series came out in the early 80s.

Here's one of my favorite tracks off the LP The Process:


Right Wing Entitlement Culture: Pt. I - Hollywood

Ed Morrissey over at Hot Air ( I do so love that name, since it's quite fitting for their subject matter ) is touting a new documentary intended to expose that evil "liberal bias" in film and television:

What does Hollywood really think of conservatives? Ben Shapiro talked to the movers and shakers in Hollywood to find out — and recounts his adventures in his new book, Primetime Propaganda: The True Hollywood Story of How the Left Took Over Your TV

This is something the Modern American Right love to do - play the role of the ultimate victim in society. This is readily apparent when Morrissey does post like this, as it not only shows how ignorant he is of film narratives but how his definition of "conservativism" shifts to fit a particular time and day.

The real story behind all of this noise and pity party posturing is that the Modern American Right don't want to have to deal with that which they champion most - Free Market Principles. Do they honestly expect studios to produce programming and feature films that don't have an audience that will bring them a profit? Actually, yes, they do. But we all saw what happened when Atlas Shrugged was a giant disaster at the box office, though Hot Air was sure to make excuses for that as well.

Having studied film for the better part of my life, I now that producers and studios can make really bad decisions and end up losing a lot of money, but using the consistent drumbeat of "we are a Center Right nation" that the Modern American Right doles out at every conceivable opportunity, coupled with the fact that the Tea Baggers are somehow "the voice of the people", why do you think Hollywood doesn't make more films like Atlas Shrugged? The answer is quite simple - they don't make money.

With that in mind, one has to ask whether or not this selective love affair with the Free Market travels outside the world of film and television? Does the Modern American Right think that there are business that sell toys, cars, or even food that cater to an exclusively "Far Left" audience? The answer is most likely a definitive yes, considering the group we are discussing.

But what is troubling most of all is how the Modern American Right define "conservativism".

Having grown up on a family farm in Western Kentucky, I saw what true conservativism was. It wasn't predicated on isolating people, but favored the noting that "I am my brother's keeper", as the community helped one another when the time called for it. It was about defending all of America and not just a specific, even fringe, element within it. The broader point is that the Modern American Right have taken the word "conservative" and melded it with "Libertarianism" and "Extremism" and attempting to convince people that this is what makes up a plurality of American thought. The only problem is that this isn't the case, and they will complain until their final breath that they are the target of a malicious attack because the majority won't openly embrace the minority.

Late Night Music Club feat. Underworld

Having grown up in a geographical area that is virtually devoid of musical diversity, it was with great wonder that I absorbed and searched for various genres when I left for college and soon-after became a DJ.

One group that will consistently stand out as a pioneer in the genre is Underworld. Their style is unique in the realm of Electronic music yet easily recognizable due to Karl Hyde's vocal stylings.

Tonight's selection was originally featured on the "Batman and Robin" soundtrack, but was later added to Underworlds final studio album Beaucoup Fish

How Far Is "Far Left"?

That's a question I have been asking myself for quite a while now.

Every time you hear someone within the Modern American Right use the term "Far Left", you have to look at the person using it and then ask yourself what their metric is for "Centrist" first.

It's quite the dizzying experience, as there is no true metric for this at all - it's just a talking point that sounds great and apparently tests well with the viewing audience of Fox"News" and conservative talk radio and blogs.

It's with that in mind that I never use the term "Far Right", as that would make as much sense as my political adversaries using the alternate term. I have opted for the more honest and encompassing phrase "Modern American Right". And while some may claim that that term is far too "general", I would offer that it is both accurate and historic based on our current socio-political climate.

But back to the definition at hand...........

I first started considering how the Modern American Right would define this back when Bush was still occupying the White House while watching Bill O'Reilly - as he was want to use the term during literally every segment of his program, and still does to this day.

His style is so dry and predictably flaccid that it became apparent that he would even call my grandmother - at the time an 88 year old woman that new nothing but farm life in Western Kentucky who just happened changed her political alignment sometime after Reagan's re-election but to this day is still one of the more conservative women I have ever known - a member of the "Far Left".

Then there's Glenn Beck......

Honestly, I think he would call his own children "Far Left" if they even wanted him to rent "Where The Wild Things Are" on DVD.

So, what about Sean Hannity? Sarah Palin? Fox and Friends? Heck, Neil Cavuto?

The truth of the matter is that the Modern American Right can't define that term. But I can.

"Far Left" simply means that any person who does not think Fox"News" is a legitimate source of news, thinks that women have the right to choose, thinks that workers have the right to organize, thinks that healthcare is a right, thinks that..............well, you see where this is going, don't you.

Anyone that even modestly disagrees with the Modern American Right will be labeled as a fringe extremist that is obviously hell-bent on tossing the country into the ever burning abyss of fire and damnation. And that's putting it mildly.

Are their sub-classifications of both Left and Right political alignment? Of course, but you aren't going to get that from Fox or even from some Left/Progressive sources. The reason is that, all too often, we get enraptured with the idea that painting something as "extreme" will elevate our own point of view. And for the Modern American Right, they are champs at distorting whom their socio-political opposites are.

Late Night Music Club feat. Faith No More

Being a child of the 80s, I can remember bands like Flock of Seagulls, The Thompson Twins, and Herbie Hancock's video for Rokit on MTV for the first time. But the era of music that really started to mold me in a whole new direction was that of early 90s rock. The one band that sticks out as an influence on my life from those years is Faith No More.

For tonight's selection here's "A Small Victory", off 1992s Angel Dust

Decision Time

Fox"News" is practically beside themselves over Palin's upcoming "Hey, I'm On A Bus Again" show and how this likely means that she's running for President.

Let's not mince words on this - Palin loves her "celebrity stature" and will not give that up if she doesn't have to. And there are lots of things that Palin would have to give up if she won:

- No more "speaking engagements" where she gets paid above and beyond what anyone of her faux intellectual level should get paid.

- No more "campaigning"; since as we all know, the Modern American Right can't stand it when people "campaign all the time".

- No more "reality TV shows", because she'll have to be making important decisions now rather than trying to pretend that her and her family and just "normal, real, Americans".

- No longer can she be in the employ of Fox"News".

But wait, would she really be giving all that up if she did win? Do you think Fox"News", talk radio, and her drooling sychophants would let her?

I'm not going to convince myself that she isn't going to run, nor am I going to be afraid that she would win, since there are enough people within the Modern American Right that will realize that as the days draw closer to election day 2012, that they can't afford to have someone like Palin in the White House.

Sure, she won't be doing it alone - as all Presidents have various advisers and cabinet members - but at the end of the day, this is the woman that quit ( and yes, she quit ) when the political pressure got to her. Obama has had to endure more pressure and specious scandal than Palin could possibly imagine, and he hasn't quit.

As far as myself, I say bring her on. And when she does announce - and she will - we are going to see infighting within the Modern American Right the likes of which no one has seen in a generation - possibly ever.

This Is Their Metric For Election Results?

I'll be blunt on this - I can't stand American Idol. It's been pointless from day one. It showcases not true talent in the arena of music, but focuses almost exclusively on commercialism and gimmicks that are pushed to people who likely buy things because they think they will seem "important" or because the logo used is flashier. They are attracted by the "prettiest lights" that flash in front of them.

So when I read Jeannie DeAngelis' "article" over at Breitbart's "Big Hollywood" site about how the American Idol finale is a signifier that Obama is in trouble come election night 2012, it was revealed to me that the Modern American Right swallowed whole the notion that gimmicks and special effects are more important to them than substance.

After three endless years of Barack Obama being more popular than Jesus, God and country seem to be making a huge comeback. If this season’s American Idol outcome is any indication of what lies ahead in the next election, Barack Obama may be heading back to the home of Muddy Waters and the Chicago Blues.

Interestingly, on American Idol each week those eliminated, with the exception of a Rod Stewart wannabe from Alabama, returned home to blue states. Even the stunningly talented Pia Toscano, who was thought to be a shoe-in, was sent packing back to the blue shores of Howard Beach, NY.

Besides being entertained by judges J Lo, Steven Tyler and Randy Jackson, this season American Idol has showcased talent from all along the musical spectrum. America was wowed by James Durbin, whose voice embellished raucous heavy metal; Pia was crowned the queen of ballads; Casey Abrams entertained America with a scruffy eccentric brand of stand-up bass showmanship; Haley Reinhard emerged as a polished version of Janis Joplin; and a cuddly promise of Luther was reborn in the endearing Jacob Lusk.

Yet, throughout the competition and despite the huge talent pool, country singers Lauren Alaina and Scotty McCreery endured from week to week. One thing about Lauren and Scotty that stood out was their consistent profession of personal faith and loyalty to a patriotic genre of music that unabashedly celebrates both God and country.

One thing that troubles me is when people talk about "country music". There is no "country music" anymore. So to say that Lauren and Scotty embody that genre is to participate in an action of pure unblushing ignorance. And if you couple that with the actions of the "voters" or American Idol and the real voters in the Presidential Election, you've done more than jump the proverbial shark - you've completely inverted the fabric of space/time and have placed yourself into the race to become one of the dumbest people in the known universe.

If Lauren and Scotty were truly the embodiment of real country music, then they would talk about the suffering of farmers and beaten wives; the plight of families dealing with a father that drinks or a mother that is absent; or sing songs of celebrations of renegades, outlaws, and excess in the South. Neither of these two have the passion of a true country artist like Hank Sr., Johnny Cash, or Waylon Jennings and Willie Nelson. And while it is true that these mentioned sang gospel songs, these were out of a sense of belief rather than a desire to posture to gain adoration.

Country music died decades ago and was replaced with a new form of "Top 40" fare that does nothing more than insult those that built the foundations of Country. Take a look at who's on the "Country" charts this week and then take those songs and compare them with the likes of Patsy Cline or Merle Haggard.

But there are those that take up the "appearance" of a Country purist but come off as nothing more than the current gimmicks that were the two finalists of the current American Idol season. Even some that once held the title of a true Country artist have become nothing more than supplicants of Right Wing theology. The name that immediately comes to mind is Hank Willians Jr.

It would be interesting to see the demographics for who voted on the American Idol finale and see how many of these people are even eligible to vote in the 2012 election, are even considering it, and if they are, what candidate they would vote for. I'm guessing that the results wouldn't mesh with DeAngelis' poorly constructed and utterly preposterous thesis.

Late Night Music Club feat. Danzig

Been going back and listening to many artists that I had pushed to the way side several years ago and this guy kept bubbling to the surface on my MP3 player all day today.

So, tonight's Late Night Music Club feature is Glenn Danzig doing a bang-up version of Elvis Presley's "Trouble".

This version is contained as an addendum to the "ThrallDemonsweatLive" CD and showcase Glenn's passion for Elvis and blatant irreverence in rock music - as he's referenced him as a great influence, along with Roy Orbison and Jim Morrison.

The Irony Of Right Wing Posturing

Jim Hoft ( also known as GatewayPundit - or the "Dumbest Man On The Internet" ) has a problem with Community Organizing. That is, until it presents an opportunity for him to pretend like he has a soul:

A St. Louis Facebook group was able to organize and deliver 4 semi trailer full of goods to the Joplin, Missouri tornado victims today.

St. Louis for Joplin Missouri Facebook group organized and sent 4 semis full of goods to the Joplin tornado victims today.

The semis left St. Louis this evening for Joplin, Missouri after the charity drive was organized a day earlier on Facebook. They collected 4 semi trucks full of household goods, diapers, sheets, cleaners, water, etc. for the people of Joplin.

So now he's for community organizing? After all, it's not solely about politics. But I guess it's alright for little Jimmy provided they aren't organizing to find affordable housing for low income families who happen to be primarily black.


Position Predictable

So the Modern American Right claims that Palin has a "secret weapon" she's about to use just in time to announce her candidacy for President.

Too bad this is the same thing she has used ever since she was vomited down into the socio-political stage of the "lower 48":

Shortly after Republicans swept last November to a historic victory in which Sarah Palin was credited with playing a central role, the former Alaska governor pulled aside her close aide, Rebecca Mansour, to discuss a hush-hush assignment: Reach out to conservative filmmaker Stephen K. Bannon with a request. Ask him if he would make a series of videos extolling Palin's governorship and laying to rest lingering questions about her controversial decision to resign from office with a year-and-a-half left in her first term. It was this abdication, Palin knew, that had made her damaged goods in the eyes of some Republicans who once were eager to get behind her potential 2012 presidential campaign.

The response was more positive than Palin could have hoped for. He'd make a feature-length movie, Bannon told Mansour, and he insisted upon taking complete control and financing it himself -- to the tune of $1 million.

The fruits of that initial conversation are now complete. The result is a two-hour-long, sweeping epic, a rough cut of which Bannon screened privately for Sarah and Todd Palin last Wednesday in Arizona, where Alaska's most famous couple has been rumored to have purchased a new home. When it premieres in Iowa next month, the film is poised to serve as a galvanizing prelude to Palin's prospective presidential campaign -- an unconventional reintroduction to the nation that she and her political team have spent months eagerly anticipating, even as Beltway Republicans have largely concluded that she won't run.

So Palin sent out the woman that writes her Facebook posts to convince a "conservative filmmaker" to make a propaganda film about her and the Fox"Nation" and all their drooling compatriots consider this a "secret weapon"? This is standard operating procedure for these people.

But let's consider their previous standpoints on documentaries of this nature......

By and large, documentaries can be divided into two categories: The Micheal Moore style and the Ken Burns style. While the former is largely and unblushingly predicated on a pure ideological message, the later is a purest form. Care to take a guess which one Stephen K. Bannon's is going to follow?

Moreover, one has to look at what Bannon is doing - putting up a meager sum ( most low budget, indie films spend MUCH more than this; as the producers of the box office disaster Atlas Shrugged spent upwards of 10 times as much ) of "one million dollars" - and this appears to me to be more of a calculated business move than one of blind allegiance to Palin. He'll likely pocket a rather substantial profit from this. Honestly makes me wonder who is bilking who in this whole laughable affair.

Regular Blogging Returns Tomorrow

So I finally finished the third draft of my screenplay and the hunt begins for someone to buy it. Keep your fingers crossed.

That being said, this blog is about to get a serious revamp and return to some of it's original roots.

Tonight, we start with the late night music sessions again.

It was just announced - for any of my readers ( are you even still here? ) that are attending Bonnaroo next month - that Bjork has been added and will play a late night set after Eminem.

Here she is doing her usual quirky and ahead of it's time jam on the track Biofilia

Dumbest Attack On Obama Yet?

Maybe not, but it's pretty close

Obama could have ordered a drone strike on the US helicopter wreckage at Osama Bin Laden’s compound.
He didn’t. And so last Thursday Chinese officials went to Pakistan to inspect the wreckage of the US chopper held by the Pakistani government.

The Pakistanis don’t want to give it back to the US. They’re upset about the “illegal strike” inside Pakistan.

What Jim Hoft ( aka: Gatewaypundit is referring to is the wreckage of the stealth copter that the Seal Team had to ditch prior to killing the man that George W. Bush simply gave up looking for.

But here's my question, if the SEALs knew they would have to leave the wreckage behind, they surely would have considered the fact that the Pakistani's would enter the compound and at least take a look at it themselves. So, why didn't they blow the wreckage prior to leaving? Was this something considered during the mission and then dismissed as unimportant? Who's to say one way or another.

Why, Jim Hoft, of course.

Also, one has to consider the fact that a drone strike is precisely what Obama didn't want, and sending in a drone after the fact would likely compromise any further plans the Obama administration has regarding Pakistan. Just don't tell that to Hoft, who's obviously an expert in military action.

So here's a question I would pose to Hoft: The next time a piece of awesome military equipment is lost in battle, do we automatically send a "drone" in to scorch the earth and destroy it? Is this for specific pieces of equipment only, or just ones that you think you can use as a pitiful attack against the man who's done a better job than your hero in the fight against terrorism?

Yes, He Did: Pt. IV - What Will Make Them Happy

When I watched clip last night over at the Right Wing "hate-site" Fox"Nation", it finally became clear to me that it's not Obama that's making the successful killing of Bin Laden about him, it's the Modern American Right that's making it all about Obama:

I'll get back to how this "breaking news" is more about Fox's/The Right's own agenda than about what actually happened that day in New York.

Moreover, I seriously question the validity of Debra Burlingame's version of her encounter with Obama, considering her personal disdain with our President.

And while some will say that it's not right to question a woman that lost so much on Sept. 11th 2001, I feel that it's only intellectually honest to do so based on her preconceived notions of who Obama is and what he has done. After all, he gave the "go-ahead" order that lead to the death of the man that was responsible for the death of her husband.

But more on that portion of the story later.

While the Modern American Right remains to be unmoved by the implications of what has happened over the course of the last two weeks - that Obama has proven has was born in America and has brought down the most wanted terrorist in the world - I have to ask what else he has to do that will make them understand that his presidency is more of a success than the Bush Administration.

Considering the metric by which the Modern American Right operate, the bar is set so high that no one - not even someone they have deified - would be able to claim such a title.

Not Palin, not Trump, not Bachmann, no anyone.

Why is that?

The truth, despite what the Modern American Right will insist upon reads as such:

Obama must be impeached or defeated in the General Election.

And while I am given pause to relate the third and final prerequisite for Right Wing happiness, it shouldn't be ignored that some within their ranks openly and unflinchingly pray for his own death.

Anyone remember the Death Prayer movement?

Again, what does this man have to do?

Walk on water?

Cure the sick with a touch of his hand?

Make NASCAR a more interesting event?

The metric for acceptability lies purely within the hand of the Modern American Right. And no matter what happens, it seems they won't have any of it until he accepts George W. Bush into his heart as his "personal savior".

Yes, He Did: Pt. III - It's All A Conspiracy!!!!!

A saying that most people in America know and often repeat is that there are only two things guaranteed in this world - death and taxes. However, the Modern American Right has added another item that is also guaranteed - anytime the Obama administration does anything, there's going to be a multitude of conspiracy theories formulated.

But not all of these are as crazy and full of comedic value as others.

For instance, the newest meme is that the still photos of Obama's speech Saturday night were "staged", thereby questioning the legitimacy of the message itself. The only problem is that this has been standard procedure since - gasp - the Reagan Era.

John Harrington, president of the White House News Photographers Association, tells me that the Obama Administration has used this technique before and they are not the first.

“I am aware of it happening in previous administrations. I believe Bush 41 [George H.W. Bush] did it too,” Harrington says. “The times where I have known of it happening before is when the president is in the Oval Office and you are working in a very tight space.”

Other photographers who work at the White House told that since the Reagan era (and possibly before) it has been the standard operating procedure that during a live presidential address, still cameras are not allowed to photograph the actual event.

Questioning the actions of the President or his administration officials is completely rational and understandable - that is, until your questions and accusations fail to be rational or understandable.

The morning following the announcement, members of the Modern American Right even went so far as to decry the celebrations in front of the White House as nothing more than a "staged" incident.

Right Wing Socio-Political Agnosticism is quite an intriguing thing to analyze, as they are want to de-emphasize that which can clearly be seen, yet are more than eager to believe that which simply isn't there.

Seeing as how Obama provided the evidence that should silence the "Birthers" once and for all - but you know they'll keep going - the next (il)logical step for the Modern American Right to take is to use the same template in regards to the verified killing of Bin Laden:

The free world, particularly the United States, has a right to make sure Osama bin Laden is really dead. Every American has a right to walk right up to bin Laden’s corpse and view it. We are entitled to know for a fact that the witch is dead. No shroud for dignity’s sake, please – bin Laden’s naked, bullet-riddled corpse should be put on display in lower Manhattan for all the world to see. The entire body should be digitally scanned, inside and out – and made available for everyone to take his or her own picture.

The snuff fetishism of the Right is likely to be the hot issue on the 2012 campaign trail, and that could likely start tonight, as Ron Paul and Herman Cain will be taking the stage for Fox"News".

Truth-be-told, I enjoy a good conspiracy theory, provided it makes me do the research to either verify or debunk it. But the rapid-fire way in which the Modern American Right display their conspiratorial nature tends to make one realize that these are nothing more than excuses for their own ideological ignorance.

Yes, He Did: Pt 2 - It's All About George

This was a natural path for the Modern American Right to take - credit George W. Bush for the success of the Obama administration. But do they remember this:

So why give credit to a person that admittedly wasn't concerned with Bin Laden - even after the whole "Dead or Alive" meme became such a chant with those that were the unflinching supplicants of the Bush administration. Additionally, since "waterboarding" ended in 2005, and if the Modern American Right are really wanting to maintain that it was the singular technique that helped find Bin Laden, why did the Bush administration not act on this intel they allegedly had?

The reason that people should be asking that is due to the latest meme that has sprung up within the Modern American Right - that Obama took 16 hours to decide how to approach this situation.

Take just a moment to consider the implications of reactionary decision making. While many within the Left wanted the Bush Administration to be more aggressive in going after Bin Laden just days after the attacks on September 11th, we knew that reactionary foreign policy wouldn't work, but this latest and laughable assault on the Obama administration stinks of so much hypocrisy that I shouldn't even have to tell you about it.

But there is an element within this event that I think we all need to understand - that Bush had, at least, a small roll in finding Bin Laden. Obama understood this, accepted this, and wanted him to be a part of the celebration of his death and what should be the singular action that ends our occupation of Afghanistan. The only problem is that Bush wanted no part of it.

Naturally, the Modern American Right are going to frame this as Bush "knowing" that Obama is just using this as a campaign tool. But didn't Bush use Bin Laden as a campaign tool for years? The hypocrisy continues.

Did the Bush Administration have any roll in finding Bin Laden? I'm certain they did, but I'm not so blind to know that "waterboarding" was the singular technique that found him.

Is Bush taking advantage of this to make Obama look bad? you bet he is:

A spokesman for George W. Bush says the former president has declined an invitation from President Barack Obama to attend an observance at New York's ground zero.

Obama plans to visit the site of the destroyed World Trade Center towers Thursday in the aftermath of a Navy SEALs raid that killed Osama bin Laden. The al-Qaida attack, which killed about 3,000 people, occurred in the early months of Bush's presidency in 2001.

The spokesman, David Sherzer, says the former president appreciated the offer to attend but has chosen to remain out of the spotlight during his post-presidency.

I'm almost certain that the Modern American Right are going to use this as yet another tool to claim that Bush is more of a leader than Obama is.

Yes, He Did: Reflections On The Aftermath Of Bin Laden's Death: PT 1

I had fallen asleep early Saturday evening, so I missed the good news. But, upon awaking Sunday morning, I was bombarded with Tweets and Facebook updates that revealed not just that we had finally killed the preeminent terrorist of a generation, but that that very action had further divided the nation it was intended to bring together.

In the interest of full disclosure and honesty, I had - for some years, come to believe that Bin Laden had been killed and no one was really reporting this fact because his communications - primarily audio only heard by a select few - were unusually timed with specific Bush Era political moves. Not to go all "Alex Jones" on you, but the fact that Benazir Bhutto claimed to have actionable intel regarding Bin Laden's assassination, I was inclined to more than moderately embrace that theory.

But back to the point at hand.

The first thing that immediately jumped out at me was the fact that the Modern American Right, with unblushing intensity, refused to acknowledge that the Obama administration should be recognized for this victory. And that, to me, tells me that now more than ever, they can't define what the word "victory" means in regards to military action overseas.

What they did do was something I thought quite peculiar, considering their metric for praise prior to Obama's election - they claimed that Bush was responsible for Bin Laden being killed by military action. But this wasn't just about Bush, it was about "waterboarding". It wasn't about techniques proven to provide intel that could immediately acted upon, it was about something that Liberals/Progressives knew was untrustworthy. If "waterboarding" was such a glorious tool for gleaning intel from terrorist detainees, why couldn't the Bush administration accomplish this task in as timely a fashion as the Obama administration did?

Unfortunately, for the Right, this poorly conceived rationalization is false. Donald Rumsfeld has even denied that "waterboarding" was a factor in all of this. But don't tell that to Jim Hoft ( aka: GatewayPundit - someone who is consistently sourced for the "Fair And Balanced" hate-site that is known as Fox"Nation" ). He's also pushing for a new conspiracy - that Obama knew that it was Bin Laden living in that compound since last Fall. The only problem with this is that they were only aware of a compound and not who lived there.

The scrambling and twitching efforts of the Modern American Right to denounce the actions of the Obama administration show not only their desperation, but their own knowledge that the Bush administration failed for nearly 10 years where the Obama administration succeeded in less than 3.

More to come tomorrow.............
