Thursday Thoughts!!


1) My boy, David Cook did awesome again this week on American Idol! It was Neil Diamond week and David's 2nd song was, "All I Really Need is You".

He is coming to Blue Springs on May 9th and there are going to be 10,000 tickets made available. I am hoping to be able to find a way to get a hold of some of them.

2) I don't even know what to do with Paula Abdul anymore. She made a huge gaffe Tuesday night and every one was just kind of left speechless. It has gotten to the point where my kids and I cringe when its her turn to talk. I don't even think she has a drug or alcohol problem. Its sad, I'm not sure what the disconnect is for her but I feel bad that she keeps humiliating herself in front of millions of people.

3) Obama hopes to distract voters from his core beliefs
Krauthammer outlines Obama's problems with great clarity in his column. Here is an excerpt:
"Then came the three amigos: Tony Rezko, the indicted fixer; Jeremiah Wright, the racist reverend; William Ayers, the unrepentant terrorist. And then Obama’s own anthropological observation that “bitter” working-class whites cling to guns and religion because they misapprehend their real class interests.

In the now-famous Pennsylvania debate, Obama had extreme difficulty answering questions about these associations and attitudes. The difficulty is understandable. Some of the contradictions are inexplicable. How does one explain campaigning throughout 2007 on a platform of transcending racial divisions, while in that same year contributing $26,000 to a church whose pastor incites race hatred?

What is Obama to do? Dismiss all such questions about his associations and attitudes as “distractions.” And then count on his acolytes in the media to wage jihad against those who have the temerity to raise these questions. As if the character and beliefs of a man who would be president are less important than the “issues.” As if some political indecency was committed when Obama was prevented from going through his 21st — and likely last — primary debate without being asked about Wright or Ayers or the tribal habits of gun-toting, God-loving Pennsylvanians."

And the bad news for Obama is that 70% of Americans think that Wright has been a problem for his campaign. Obama's attempt to throw Wright under the bus on Tuesday was insulting. Rush was right when he said it would be similar to Hillary coming out and saying that she had just now discovered that her husband has been cheating on her for the past 20 years and she is just now deciding to divorce him. To think that we are supposed to believe that Obama didn't know what his Pastor was preaching about for the past 20 years is absurd. Either Obama is extremely ignorant or a liar. Neither is a very appealing option.

4) Supreme Court clears way to require photo ID for voting
The great news about this ruling is that as the title points out this now clears the way for states like Missouri who have already passed Voter Id laws to be upheld. This is good news for American citizens but bad news for those who like to commit voter fraud via dead people, illegal citizens, etc...

5) Today is the National Day of Prayer!
