Michelle Obama Does Target

Michelle Obama, wearing a disguise, went shopping at a Target store in Alexandria, Va., Thursday, proving she is just like the rest of us - she carries her bags while pushing an empty cart.

The outing has been portrayed as a princess/pauper shopping trip and only the cashier recognized the First Lady. Didn't anyone notice AP photographer Charles Dharapak following her around snapping pictures? Where was Target security to protect this anonymous woman from the weird guy with the camera?

Awlaki and Khan Dead, Dead, Dead

Only weeks after the dastardly attacks of 9/11, Anwar al-Awlaki attended a luncheon at the Pentagon. Yemeni officials reported today the bill was delivered by Hellfire missile from an American CIA drone; Anwar al-Awlaki is dead. Along with him in hell is loser Samir Khan, the co-editor/writer of "Inspire" webzine, the slick terrorist web publication which recruited more losers to the terrorist cause with articles like "Making a bomb in the kitchen of your mom."

Jawa Report has much more on both losers and greater coverage of the breaking news as they've been following Awlaki and Khan since the start. Khan even threatened the life of Jawa's beloved Rusty who writes, "The really personal news here would be that Samir Khan is dead. As long time readers know, Samir and I have had personal disputes over the years. It was Samir, then blogging as Inshallahshaheed, who threatened to kill my family. He even made this nice little graphic to go along with the threat."

Michelle Malkin writes in a rare defense of the Obama administration, "Obama’s far left flank will be unhappy if the mission to kill Awlaki, an American citizen, was successful. They will again decry such drone strikes against American citizens as unprecedented and lawless.

On this, I will come to Obama’s defense.

Awlaki’s membership and leadership in al Qaeda is undisputed.

We are at war.

The Supreme Court set the precedent for Obama’s and our military’s actions in 1942."

Of all the idiotic, boneheaded ideas and actions pursued by Barack Obama, the use of drones, Hellfire missiles, and death from the skies to the bad guys is not one of them. Obama stepped-up the use of drone missile attacks begun by the Bush Administration.

Speaking at Admiral Mullens' retirement ceremony, Obama said, "The death of Awlaki is a major blow to Al Qaeda's most active operational affiliate," Obama said Friday. "He took the lead in planning and directing efforts to murder innocent Americans ... and he repeatedly called on individuals in the United States and around the globe to kill innocent men, women and children to advance a murderous agenda."

He said the strike is "further proof that Al Qaeda and its affiliates will find no safe haven anywhere in the world."

Doin' a heckuva job, Barry!

Now watch for Obama to take full credit for killing Awlaki and Khan like he did the killing of bin Ladin and make it a campaign issue.

Obama Favored Basketball Over Ethics

Barack Obama told students of Benjamin Banneker Academic High School during his third annual "Back to School" speech about his experience in the 8th grade. It sounded, however, like his nearly three years as the head of the Executive branch of the U.S. government -
"I did not love every class I took. I wasn’t always paying attention the way I should have. I remember when I was in 8th grade I had to take a class called ethics. Now, ethics is about right and wrong, but if you’d ask me what my favorite subject was back in 8th grade, it was basketball. I don’t think ethics would have made it on the list."
Seems not much has changed.

CNS News has video.

Pullet Surprise for PETA from NYT

This photo of a seductively lounging raw chicken carcass that ran in the New York Times food section has run afoul of the the animal rights group, PETA. The story, Chicken’s Attraction Is Truly Skin Deep, says there are "white-meat people and there are dark-meat people; there are those who swear by the drumstick, thigh or breast" may be racist and misogynistic, but certainly not necrophilic as PETA claims. The NYT story is actually about the the "skin people. They are the ones who cannot help themselves around roast or fried chicken, ripping off the crispiest bits of skin before the bird makes it to the table."

The photo created quite a buzz on Twitter where one tweeter said the photo was "magnificent." Or was that about the chicken? Another said it was "sexy as hell." Still not sure - photo or chicken. Whichever, the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals did not agree. Ingris Newkirk, PETA founder and president, told The Atlantic Wire, "When I saw it I just couldn't believe that an editor of The New York Times would find it acceptable. ...It's downright offensive, not just to people who care about animals but almost to everyone. It's a plucked, beheaded, young chicken in a young pose."

The Gray Lady's photo editor, Tina Loit, saw the photo differently saying, "Once he propped it up, it became a completely different vibe. The chicken had attitude." The photographer, Tony Cenicola explained his artistic choice, "My original concept was sort of a languid nude." Newkirk remained adamant, "It's necrophilia. It's not amusing. It's just ghastly and sickly. It's not fitting for The New York Times." I'm guessing she said this without the barest hint of irony.

PETA, well versed in the use of sexual enticement in their own risque ads using nearly nude photos of starlets captioned with "I'd rather be naked than wear fur" that have been running for several years and now is launching their own porn site featuring XXX stars like Sacramento's own Sasha Grey and Jenna Jameson, who's not known for her political activism, but once confessed in 2007 to supporting Hillary Clinton's bid for the presidency, "The Clinton administration was the best years for the adult industry and I wish that Clinton would run again. I would love to have him back in office. I would love to have Al Gore in office."

We must certainly take PETA seriously now that they have the heavy hitter intellects of porn supporting them and their cause to stamp out the abusive treatment of animals living and dead, so long as the animals are not human.

New DPRK PR Poster

Democratic People's Republic of Korea (N. Korea) released two new posters "to help more splendidly spruce up Pyongyang and hasten the harvest this year" and, according to The Daily Caller, to confuse the apparently starving citizenry about the forthcoming poor autumn harvest.

This poster is captioned, "Let us all go for harvesting!"

Here's what the poster says to me:
North Korea, where the wind comes sweepin' down the plain
And the wavin' wheat can sure smell sweet
When the wind comes right behind the rain.
North Korea, Ev'ry night my honey lamb and I
Sit alone and talk and watch a hawk
Makin' lazy circles in the sky.

We know we belong to the land
And the land we belong to is grand!
And when we say
Yeeow! Ayipioeeay!
We're only sayin'
You're doin' fine, North Korea!
North Korea D.P.R.K.
