Potty training

I bought Evie Elmo's potty time hoping it would help. She watched it a few times, did not seem impressed.

Have a Dora the Explorer potty seat. Just as unimpressed.

Ruffled panties=are okay
Dora panties are awesome.

However, yesterday, my little anti-potty Princess, one first day of hard core training, took the elmo DVD AND the potty seat and hid them.

HID them.

Is that not the funniest thing you have ever heard? That girl has a stubborn streak the size of Texas wahahahahahahahahahaaaa

Just had to share.

Making worm glasses.

So my clever 5 year old comes up to me and asks if we can go see his watermelon. About 2 months ago we planted some seeds. I told him I was very sorry, but I think watermelon died. He wants to go see anyway.

So off we go out the front door. Getting our noses to the dirt we peer deeply into the spot of watermelon's old home. It's true. Watermelon has left us. HOWEVER!

We see Worm! :D oh happiness and joy for a little boy who spots a worm! We discussed how worm had moved into watermelons old home, and how that was fine with us. I wondered aloud if worm got a good lease agreement or if he was a transient. 5 year old looked at me that way he often does when I feel he pities his dear old Ma's addled brain.

Ethan suggested we take worm and put him on the side walk so we could see him better. "Oh no Ethan, the sun would burn worm, that would not be nice."
So he replies "Mom, lets go make worm some sunglasses so the sun never burns him"

I thought that was a brilliant suggestion, and thus we are now making worm sunglasses.

5 year olds rock.

Best movie line ever


Factcheck Facts

Rumormill has been claiming people should trust factcheck dot org. Not one to just trust that, I decided to see how they are funded. This is what I found:

Fact Check. Org is led by Brooks Jackson: is a journalist who covered Washington and national politics for 34 years, also reporting in turn for The Associated Press, the Wall Street Journal and CNN.
All in all no big deal.

But then things get interesting. There is the factoid that factcheck dot Org is paid for by the Annenberg foundation. Hopefully you willl recall that Factcheck was the second site to publish the now-suspect Certificate of Live Birth (COLB)claiming to be received directly from the Obama campaign. There is a lawsuit going on about the validity of the birth certificate. I personally am pretty curious as to why it was that factcheck was one of only a small handful of media to get a copy of the COLB? Why with the mystery is it not being sent out to all the news outlets to squash the concern?

Another fact to keep in mind: Senator Obama was the first Chairman of the Board of the Chicago Annenberg Challenge, which was a Division, (or Project) of the Annenberg Foundation.

There is great conflict of interest there when it comes to being unbiased and strickly for the facts, don'cha think?

Walter Annenberg, founder of the $500 million gift that funded the Annenberg Challenge, had deeply rooted Chicago ties that clearly intersect with some of the same ties to Thomas and William Ayres.

Don't know who Thomas Ayers is? He is the daddy of William (Bill) Ayers, unrepentant Weather Underground terrorist and a friend of the Obamas, who himself was instrumental in founding the Annenburg Challenge, (thanks to his ties to Mayor Richard Daley). The first Daley was also a pal of Thomas Ayers, Bill’s father, who is the former CEO of ComEd.--Incidentally, the current CEO of ComEd, Frank M. Clark, is a major money bundler for the Obama campaign.

In a nutshell factcheck is far from unbiased about Barry Obama. So keep that in mind during this political campaign, and have a nice day.

My experience comes from running for President!

Newt Kicks butt

Obamas media so desperate to destroy another strong woman.

By Warner Todd Huston September 3, 2008 - 03:02 ET

John McCain's campaign spokesman is reporting that the media has deluged the campaign with demands that it provide DNA samples to "prove" that baby Trig is the true offspring of vice presidential candidate Governor Sarah Palin. Imagine the effrontery of this demand? Imagine the ignorance and outrageousness of this attack that Governor Palin is receiving at the hands of the Old Media? Worse, realize that this storm has been raised by gutter websites like DailyKos and the DemocraticUnderground! The media is not only indulging in the lowest of attacks they are allowing the most extreme, unhinged of the far left to dictate the direction of their coverage. The Old Media are worse than dancing puppets for the hatemongers on the left.

The Washington Post's Howard Kurtz reported that McCain campaign manager Steve Schmidt is being buried under an avalanche of these unseemly demands for Palin's DNA by the media establishment.

In an extraordinary and emotional interview, Steve Schmidt said his campaign feels "under siege" by wave after wave of news inquiries that have questioned whether Palin is really the mother of a 4-month-old baby, whether her amniotic fluid had been tested and whether she would submit to a DNA test to establish the child's parentage.

Imagine the temerity of these media scavengers?

Even Kurtz admits that hate sites like DailyKos is leading the media around by the nose.

The intensity of media inquiries hit a new level after an anonymous blogger on the liberal Web site Daily Kos last weekend charged that McCain's running mate is actually the grandmother of Trig Palin, the 4-month-old baby born with Down syndrome, and that the real mother is her daughter, 17-year-old Bristol Palin. That led to mainstream media inquiries, which prompted the McCain camp to disclose in a statement Monday that Bristol is five months pregnant and plans to have the baby and marry the teenage father.

These disgusting allegations were proven completely false on the same day that the ignorati at the DailyKos raised them. Dozens of photos were produced that proved that Palin was pregnant and eyewitness accounts were brought forward cooberating the photos. Yet the mean spiritedness of the press corps pressed onward anyway with these hateful attacks on a mother of a special needs child, a baby with Down Syndrome and a teenaged girl.

And now they have the gall to demand DNA?

It causes me, at least, to ask some salient questions. WHY didn't the press ramp up their demands for DNA during those fateful days when the Blue Dress filled with Bill Clinton's DNA was all the topic of the news? Why have they not been demanding DNA evidence to prove or disprove John Edward's is or isn't the father of the Rielle Hunter's baby? They don't seem all so interested in DNA in those cases, do they?

The Old Media double standard is in full effect here, folks. Any tiny line of smear can be used freely to destroy a Republican and their family members -- including children. But when it comes to liberals... why, it's hands off, it's all about safeguarding a candidate's privacy, sex isn't a topic, and leave the candidate's kids alone!

To be a journalist is the most shameful profession on earth at this point. And they just keep sinking lower and lower to support Obamas empty suit campaign.
