I've got an errand or two to run this morning...

…so blog­ging might be light.

Lucky for every­body oth­ers are on the ball:

Casey Fiano takes a pause from her pro life blog­ging to remind us of the small annoy­ances that the Obama admin­is­tra­tion brings us:

An inter­na­tional part­ner”?? This may be an inter­na­tional relief effort — with the United States as usual giv­ing far more than any other coun­try — but that hasn’t kept other coun­tries from fly­ing their flags. France, Ger­many, and Croa­tia are all fly­ing their flags, just like every other coun­try. I doubt any­one in Haiti is weep­ing over the French, Ger­man, and Croa­t­ian occu­pa­tions tak­ing place because of it. No one besides Obama is idi­otic enough to think that fly­ing our flag means that we’ll be seen as an occu­pa­tion force. It’s per­fectly clear to every­one with a brain that we are in Haiti for one rea­son alone, and that is to give relief.

Con­sid­er­ing the amount of money, time, and man­power we’ve con­tributed to the relief effort in Haiti, one would think that Obama would be proud to have our flag fly­ing in Haiti. But Obama isn’t a pres­i­dent who is proud of his coun­try, is he? He’d rather apol­o­gize for the United States than take pride in it. We are lit­er­ally sav­ing lives for no gain of our own in a for­eign coun­try, and he’s still apologizing.

If we aren’t even allowed to be proud of the coun­try when we are doing a human­i­tar­ian mis­sion when will it be.

At the other McCain Smitty has a word about St. Patrick’s day at google:

As a Chris­t­ian, I’ll ven­ture as a default posi­tion that Saint Patrick would be as excited about the atten­tion directed at him­self, and not Christ, as, say, Dr. Mar­tin Luther King, Jr. would be.
Heaven for­bid any­thing ever be about me per­son­ally, in all seriousness.

I don’t know it sure looks like a cross on that G to me and any­ways we Catholics don’t have a prob­lem ask­ing the saints to pray for us. After all these guys have proven that they know what they’re doing.

Mean­while the Wash­ing­ton Monthly bemoans CNN’s desire to try to actu­ally get peo­ple to watch them.

This is eas­ily the worst deci­sion CNN has ever made. That the net­work prob­a­bly reviewed Erickson’s work before hir­ing him, and offered him a job any­way, sug­gests CNN’s pro­fes­sional stan­dards for what con­sti­tutes “an impor­tant voice” have all but disappeared.

The point here isn’t that it’s dis­ap­point­ing to see CNN hire yet another con­ser­v­a­tive voice, adding to its already-​large sta­ble of con­ser­v­a­tive voices. To be sure, it’s frus­trat­ing, but it’s noth­ing new.

The prob­lem here is with Erick­son himself.

Well Erick­son did give me CPAC cre­den­tials so that’s a strike against him.

And if you need a sign of spring, look no fur­ther than the site of Father Z. He not only give you a taste of the birds of spring he han­dles the attacks on the Pope exactly the right way:

Pray.

Just pray.

For­give­ness for the haters.

For­give­ness for the fail­ings of all pro­fessed Catholics.

Con­so­la­tion for the damaged.

Courage, health and length of days for the Pope.

And he pro­vides a prayer for those who might not have one handy.

I’ll be back in a bit, mean­while pop in The Quiet Man and enjoy St. Patrick’s day

…so blogging might be light.

Lucky for everybody others are on the ball:

Casey Fiano takes a pause from her pro life blogging to remind us of the small annoyances that the Obama administration brings us:

“An international partner”?? This may be an international relief effort — with the United States as usual giving far more than any other country — but that hasn’t kept other countries from flying their flags. France, Germany, and Croatia are all flying their flags, just like every other country. I doubt anyone in Haiti is weeping over the French, German, and Croatian occupations taking place because of it. No one besides Obama is idiotic enough to think that flying our flag means that we’ll be seen as an occupation force. It’s perfectly clear to everyone with a brain that we are in Haiti for one reason alone, and that is to give relief.

Considering the amount of money, time, and manpower we’ve contributed to the relief effort in Haiti, one would think that Obama would be proud to have our flag flying in Haiti. But Obama isn’t a president who is proud of his country, is he? He’d rather apologize for the United States than take pride in it. We are literally saving lives for no gain of our own in a foreign country, and he’s still apologizing.

If we aren’t even allowed to be proud of the country when we are doing a humanitarian mission when will it be.

At the other McCain Smitty has a word about St. Patrick’s day at google:

As a Christian, I’ll venture as a default position that Saint Patrick would be as excited about the attention directed at himself, and not Christ, as, say, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. would be.
Heaven forbid anything ever be about me personally, in all seriousness.

I don’t know it sure looks like a cross on that G to me and anyways we Catholics don’t have a problem asking the saints to pray for us. After all these guys have proven that they know what they’re doing.

Meanwhile the Washington Monthly bemoans CNN’s desire to try to actually get people to watch them.

This is easily the worst decision CNN has ever made. That the network probably reviewed Erickson’s work before hiring him, and offered him a job anyway, suggests CNN’s professional standards for what constitutes “an important voice” have all but disappeared.

The point here isn’t that it’s disappointing to see CNN hire yet another conservative voice, adding to its already-large stable of conservative voices. To be sure, it’s frustrating, but it’s nothing new.

The problem here is with Erickson himself.

Well Erickson did give me CPAC credentials so that’s a strike against him.

And if you need a sign of spring, look no further than the site of Father Z. He not only give you a taste of the birds of spring he handles the attacks on the Pope exactly the right way:

Pray.

Just pray.

Forgiveness for the haters.

Forgiveness for the failings of all professed Catholics.

Consolation for the damaged.

Courage, health and length of days for the Pope.

And he provides a prayer for those who might not have one handy.

I’ll be back in a bit, meanwhile pop in The Quiet Man and enjoy St. Patrick’s day
