Reminds me of this speech from Godfather 2

The Coakley people know this, that is why the DNC, SEIU and other unions are going to be spreading a lot of money in this fashion and in others.

Will it be enough? I’m feeling better than I was before but will that be enough? We will see.

After all President Obama is a Chicago Pol. A guy who acts like this is a perfect fit for the broadcast board of governors if you are going to do thing the Chicago way.

This guy has apparently apologized for what the Globe and the AP says is a “stumble

Can someone explain to me why Meehan claimed to have been “a little too aggressive” if McCormick only stumbled? I’d answer it myself but I have a house to pick up with company coming tomorrow.

Vote Brown.

…as a UN Nuclear inspector in Iran, I’m sure her eagle eyes are just what Ahmadinejad is looking for in an inspector; at least that is my thought after reading this:

“I know there were people following, including people from the Brown campaign who have been very aggressive in their stalking. I’m not sure what happened. I know something occurred. I’m not privy to the facts. I’m sure it will come out, but I’m not aware of that.”.

I’m not privy to the facts!? Lets look at that picture again:

After that performance maybe the idea that she gets her foreign affairs info from her sister isn’t such a bad thing.

Perhaps this is a blessing in disguise for the democrats, if she continues to act this idiotic in public they can blame a possible Brown win not on a republican surge but on the worst candidate evah!.

…it’s the ATTORNEY” GENERAL OF MASSACHUSETTS.

Our Attorney General in action

Hotair puts it simply:

You know, a state Attorney General should be the person to enforce the law — especially, as this photo shows, she witnessed the assault and battery …

Details from the horses mouth here if you want details.

This is what happens when you have a one party state with people who are never challenged and feel they are entitled to whatever they get, but they could not get away with this if we voters from Massachusetts didn’t cooperate.

Could the democratic primary voters of my state have been more foolish? Of course they could, we do it every election up here.

Last night was game night and the game was D & D. We had almost the entire crew present much to our surprise. I thought I would see what the general consensus was concerning the election.

Going into the night, I expected one leaning Coakley vote 3 solid brown votes (including mine) 1 likely non-voter and 2 undecided.

When the subject came up, one thing was clear, Coakley is not popular, nobody in the room had a good word to say about her, however one person was very quiet.

When the subject of Brown one of the undecideds (the Marine) announced that he was no longer voting for Brown for two reasons:

1. my leaning Coakley voter said brown had “lied” about something, (I don’t know what) and the deal breaker.

2. George W. Bush endorsed Brown.

He also expressed total contempt for Coakley, it is very likely that our marine friend will stay will stay home.

The leaning Coakely voter is without question not voting Brown although he is a fiscal conservative. He had no good word for Coakley or frankly any pol. I would not be surprised to see him either stay home, If I had to bet the farm I’d say he is a Coakley voter.

The three solid Brown votes remain Brown votes, the undecided appears to be leaning Brown but not a person in that room other than me had no real interest in the election.

Make of that what you will.

Way back in the hiwired blog days I put up these posts concerning China and google when they first agreed to censor the net for China, contrary to their “Do no Evil policy”.

We covered China a lot in the HiWired blog days (and kudos to the bosses at HiWired back then for letting us do it) , in those days Yahoo and Microsoft were the primary villains.

Now Google may have had enough enough:

We launched Google.cn in January 2006 in the belief that the benefits of increased access to information for people in China and a more open Internet outweighed our discomfort in agreeing to censor some results. At the time we made clear that “we will carefully monitor conditions in China, including new laws and other restrictions on our services. If we determine that we are unable to achieve the objectives outlined we will not hesitate to reconsider our approach to China.”

These attacks and the surveillance they have uncovered–combined with the attempts over the past year to further limit free speech on the web–have led us to conclude that we should review the feasibility of our business operations in China. We have decided we are no longer willing to continue censoring our results on Google.cn, and so over the next few weeks we will be discussing with the Chinese government the basis on which we could operate an unfiltered search engine within the law, if at all. We recognize that this may well mean having to shut down Google.cn, and potentially our offices in China.

The decision to review our business operations in China has been incredibly hard, and we know that it will have potentially far-reaching consequences. We want to make clear that this move was driven by our executives in the United States, without the knowledge or involvement of our employees in China who have worked incredibly hard to make Google.cn the success it is today. We are committed to working responsibly to resolve the very difficult issues raised.

The statement is good but time will tell if it actually means anything.

Lileks tweats it best

Google lies down with dogs, wakes, does search for “flea treatment”

Nobody is telling me that they didn’t know stuff like this was going to happen or going on. I think that Plausible deniability just didn’t exist this time.

I hope I’m wrong, I hope it’s a real wake-up call but time will have to tell

…so has the spam.

I’ve found that my spam over the years (counting the hiwired blog) has gotten smarter and smarter, to the point where the filters will catch one but miss a nearly identical one.

The phony names, semi generic messages etc are getting better too.

I’m sure other bloggers see more of this than me, but considering how prevalent it is I’m shocked that there are some sites that still don’t moderate comments.
