Superman to Quit Daily Planet to Become Andrew Breitbart

Superman is quitting the Daily Planet to start his own news site. According to a statement to FOXNews, DC Comics explains:

“This is not the first time in DC Comics history that Clark Kent has left the Planet, and this time the resignation reflects present-day issues – the balance of journalism vs. entertainment, the role of new media, the rise of the citizen journalist, etc.” and that Superman would: “come into his own in the next few years as far as being a guy who takes to the Internet and to the airwaves and starts speaking an unvarnished truth.

In describing the kind of site that Superman would found Lobdell stated:

“He is more likely to start the next Huffington Post or the next Drudge Report than he is to go find someone else to get assignments or draw a paycheck from,” Lobdell told USA Today.

This new Superman sounds a lot like Andrew Breitbart to me.

Sexist TMZ poll: ‘Michelle Obama vs. Ann Romney: Who’d you rather?’

This image and our reaction to it seems to me a perfect Rorschach of the cultural war going on in the United States.

TMZ in posting the image asks simply “Who’d you rather?”

It is our reaction as individuals to this question that creates the meaning by the answer that we provide. It is the Left that makes the image sexist and misogynistic by degrading both of these accomplished women to their base sexuality.

These images can as easily be seen as a comparison between two First Ladies. The existing one and the potential incoming First Lady. That is the way I see the image, and based on that choice I’d rather have Ann Romney.

Please Help #BuyOutRunawaySlave BUY OUT BOSSIER!

Today I want to give over the space in my blog to a good friend Rob Gaudet who has worked tirelessly to help CL Bryant with his movie Runaway Slave.

C. L. Bryant is an incredible conservative and was brought into the movement by Gaudet in early 2009. The movie is currently being shown in Bossier, LA and they need conservatives to show how committed they are to supporting the movie in wider distribution.

Rob has been content to work for years in the background so others can shine, and I thought his request most eloquent and wanted to reproduce it in full here.

Please do anything you can to help with BUY OUT BOSSIER and then do what you can to bring Runaway Slave to your community.

If you’re tired of Michael Moore, who hates America, getting the attention when he does a documentary. We need your help!

Everyone agrees that the Runaway Slave has the capacity to change the hearts of people that we otherwise could not possibly reach and we need to generate buzz.

My little town in North Louisiana, Bossier City has become ground zero for how well the film Runaway Slave by Rev CL Bryant does nationwide. It has been showing exclusively here for a week now and we had tepid success last weekend with one sold out show. This coming weekend, July 13-15th, is critical that we fill all seats.

Our campaign is called BUY OUT BOSSIER (#BuyOutRunawaySlave) and are asking grassroots citizens across the country to buy at least one ticket even if they can’t go.

Distributors are watching this coming weekend closely to determine how many theaters across the country they will play it in.

We MUST get at least seven sold out showings. The great thing is that not all ticket buyers have to be here, even if you can’t go, you can still buy a ticket on Fandango.com (area code 71111), sat or sun showings preferably. If anyone has capacity to buy a block or a whole showing, even better.

Here in Bossier, we have an uphill battle and need some national help, that is why I am writing to all of you.

The movie is competing with big releases such as Spider Man, it is in an older theater in Bossier City which is the smaller of two sister cities, Shreveport being the other.

THREE WAYS YOU CAN HELP

1) Buy Tickets -> http://tinyurl.com/BuyOutBossier

Even if you can’t go, please consider buying as many tickets as you can on Sunday for the weekend of July 13th – 15th.

Tickets are just $7.50. Please buy all you can!

2) Write about it your blogs and news stories. For now focus on the BUY OUT BOSSIER campaign.

3) Help us trend #BuyOutRunAwaySlave. #Resist44 is heading it up tomorrow, kudos to Matt Perdie and Justin Charters!

4) Invite all of your conservative friends to this Facebook event page using the ‘Invite Friends’ link at the top.

ShePAC Video: “Bill Maher: Obama’s Million Dollar Man” #waronwomen

Kudos to Teri Cristoph and ShePAC for taking a stand on the left’s war on women.

This video, their first effort, is fantastic and needs to be watched and shared until it goes viral.  It documents Bill Maher’s disgusting comments HBO about Sarah Palin and her daughters as well as other conservative women. Don’t forget to use #waronwomen when tweeting.

Game on Bill Maher, GAME ON.

Bush and Obama 9/11 Remarks: A Study in Contrast

Barack Obama’s Ground Zero “Speech” was a reading of Psalm 46, although he gave it no attribution.  He also provided no context for why he chose that reading, or what lesson he hoped to impart.  It is also evident that he is unfamiliar with the text as he has to look down and over to his teleprompter to read the text. He also paused at the end of every line rather than continuing the thought through multiple lines.  This is an error that many students make when attempting to read Shakespeare as well, and betrays an inability to put his own meaningful intent behind his mere reading of the lines.

George W. Bush in contrast provided a reading from a letter by President Lincoln to a mother who had lost all 5 sons in battle. His introductory remarks provide a context for the reading which allows the listener to find a meaningful comparison between the mother who sacrificed her sons on a field of battle, and the families whose loved ones were lost on 9/11.  In doing so Bush argues that 9/11 was not just an act of terror, but an act of war, and allows the families to see the larger context of their loved ones death.

Bush expanded on this theme the previous day in his speech at the dedication of the memorial to those that died on United 93 at Shanksville, PA.  It is a beautiful speech, I encourage you to watch it in its entirety below.

Obama has often compared himself to Lincoln, but I think it is becoming clear that George W. Bush is more deserving of that comparison.
