Quote for the Day

The American tax payers have spent, and are spending, an incredible amount of money so that the people of New Orleans can continue to live below sea level, rebuild their industry of sin and debauchery, and provide a good living for prostitutes, panderers of all modes of personal degradation, criminals, thieves, and other city officials. I think it would be more appropriate for the Mayor (Nagin) and citizens to simply say "thank you," and then just shut up. --Malott, August 2006

McCain - Palin 08 - The Team You Can Trust

Not my pick... But let's give her a chance!

Always ahead of the others, prescient, prophetic, clairvoyant,... Some might say brilliant... Malott's Blog was talking-up Palin in early April. And now there is talk she may be McCain's VP choice.

Governor Sarah Palin - Rising Republican Star

Sarah Heath Palin (née Sarah Louise Heath, born February 11, 1964 in Sandpoint, Idaho) is the current Governor of Alaska.
Palin's husband, Todd, works on the North Slope and is a commercial fisherman. She also has four children: Bristol, Piper, Track, and Willow. They live in Wasilla, about 40 miles north of Anchorage.

Palin has been an athlete and a beauty queen. She was the point guard for the Wasilla High School Warriors when they won the state small school basketball championship in 1982.
In 1984, Palin competed in the Miss Alaska contest after being chosen Miss Wasilla that year. In the Wasilla contest, she played the flute and also won the title of Miss Congeniality.
Details of Palin's personal life have contributed to her political image. She eats moose burgers and rides snowmachines. She admits that, when marijuana was legal in the state, she used it; however, she didn't like it.

Palin is strongly pro-life and belongs to Feminists for Life. She opposes same-sex marriage, but has gay friends and has otherwise been receptive to gay and lesbian concerns about discrimination. While the previous administration did not implement same-sex benefits, Palin followed an Alaska Supreme Court order and signed them into law.

In July 2007, Palin was heralded in the media as being the most popular governor in the United States, with an approval rating often in the 90s. An August 2007 poll had her approval rating at 84%, with 5% disapproving.

And, she is the prettiest governor I've ever seen.
In this last picture she reminds me very much of John McCain's wife. She has been mentioned as a VP possibilty.

A Manufactured Boost

I've been watching the Democrat Convention, and I've heard some pretty good speeches. Bill and Hillary Clinton both did a great job, and though there has been some conservative pundit nitpicking, their speeches will do much to unite their Party... If anyone was listening.

But that's the thing. Is anyone watching this?

The majority of potential Democrat voters don't "do" politics... Or they wouldn't be potential Democrat voters. So I figure they're watching something else.

But Obama will get a bump in the polls. It will be manufactured by a news and entertainment industry that is overwhelmingly Democrat... It will be subtle and effective.

Quote of the Day

"I mean, you got the first mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy..." -- Joe Biden

First? Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton probably bathe on a regular basis. But maybe Joe has stood next to them and knows something I don't know.

No. I figure Democrat Vice Presidential Candidate Joe Biden has a prejudiced leaning against African Americans that don't talk, express themselves, and smell like he does. What a piece of work!

If Republicans can keep Barack and Joe talking... Maybe Black America will ultimately realize that these jokers have nothing in common with them.

...Probably not.

George of the Jungle

George Hussein Onyango Obama...

The Illinois senator (Barack Obama) mentions his brother in his autobiography, describing him in just one passing paragraph as a "beautiful boy with a rounded head".

What the heck does that mean?

So the guy still lives in a 2x3 meter shack just outside Nairobi? Maybe Barack's friend Tony Rezko could arrange better quarters for him.

"I have seen two of my friends killed. I have scars from defending myself with my fists. I am good with my fists." -- George Obama

As I blogged earlier, Obama averaged giving less than 1% of his income to charity early in this decade. I think we know why George is still in a shack.
He does have a rounded head... But I still don't know what that means.
AICS! Come Forth!

Back in March, "All I Can Stands" announced that his blogging days were over.

Malott wept.

But apparently his demise was only temporary, and after 5 months he has risen from his tomb.

I hope he has bathed.

You can find him at The Logic Lifeline.

Obama-Bayh 2008

It's getting close to Obamacision Time... He may have already decided on his running mate... So it's time for predictions.

I have no idea who he will pick, but I see it this way: The country will suffer the same no matter who he picks, so why shouldn't Indiana benefit? If Senator Pinhead is Vice President, Indiana gets a new Senator!

For those of you that don't know Evan "Nothing-In-My-Shorts-But-Downy" Bayh... Let me tell you... He is a pretty little man who talks like Ronald Reagan when he is campaigning in Indiana, and then votes with Teddy Kennedy when he gets to Washington. He is a tiresome and insipid speach maker. His sense of morality is based totally upon what works to further his career.

That's our Evan. Obama is welcome to him.
How Do White Women Feel About White Men Dating African Americans?

When I was a young man, many many many years ago, interracial dating was frowned upon. The white girls involved - generally, though certainly not always - were perceived as a little flaky, craving attention, or needing to stick it to their parents. I confess that I would have had trouble dating a girl who had been in a relationship with a black man because in my mind it would have called into question her judgement and emotional maturity.

But people work together... And fall in love. People join organizations together... And fall in love. People go to church together... And fall in love. Still, even today a decision that involves an interracial marriage would surely involve sobering questions.

But there is no inertia like that of the heart.

I worked with, was pursued by, and subsequently dated a young girl from the Philippines who had oodles of character... Who loved God... Loved America... And loved me for a while. She ended up dumping me, which I believe speaks volumes about her superior judgement. :) But my family loved her. My mother coveted her.

If she had been a native of Zimbabwe with the same personality and character, I believe my family's enthusiasm might have been more guarded... For about five seconds. But if she had been African American... I believe there may have been concern.

It would be a cultural, not a racial matter in my family.

So how do white women feel about the subject? I found these quotes by black women:

"Many white women have just as much of a problem with white men having black women on their arms as some black women do when they see black men with white women. The only difference is that white women are a little less vocal about it. I know because I have dated several white men, and the evil stares and snide remarks from white women that I have received, out-number those even from black men."

"I keep hearing other black women complain about not being able to find a good working, responsible black man yet I hear other people like yourself saying that their are plenty of them, but black women are really only looking for the black bad boys. Do you actually think black women want the bad boys and not the secure men?"

Times have changed. Or have they?

Today, I believe an interracial couple invites a scrutiny that may not be fair. But I believe the acceptance and approval of the couple is generally contingent only upon their character, attitude, and behavior.

Anyway, for some reason I find the subject fascinating.

Warren Makes Obama Legitimate

Rick Warren, the preacher who wrote "A Purpose Driven Life," sat down with Barack Obama, and later John McCain, Saturday night. The interviews were broadcast live on the Fox News Channel.

I could discuss the questions asked and the answers given, but the evening really boiled down to one result.

A man is running for president who would not support any limitations on abortion, including the abortion of full term babies by partial birth abortion... Which makes him a monster. He has promised to be the best friend the Gay Lobby has ever had... Which makes him a sodo-monger. (Yes, I just made that word up.)

You'll remember that the Prophet Elijah dealt with a group of men who promoted child sacrifice and sexual immorality. But Elijah didn't embrace them, sit down with them, and treat them like his best friend... He didn't ask them softball questions. He called for fire from heaven... And because of the way God feels about those sins... God obliged.

But Rick Warren is no Elijah. Warren sent his viewers to bed with the impression that Barack Obama is a soft spoken, thoughtful man... And though he might not agree with them on important issues... Rick seemed to like him... So he can't be evil... And maybe we need a change...

Thanks Rick.

Obama to America--Learn Spanish

This is the attack ad discussed in my previous post.

"I would Never Do An Add About The White Woman He Lived With For A Year After Columbia University"

That little grenade was dropped on the O'Reilly Factor last night as guest host John Kasich interviewed a conservative pundit who had just produced a hit piece commercial on Obama. Kasich's question was, "Is there anything that is off Limits?"

To his credit, John Kasich immediately changed the subject.

But it's out there... And I can just see the reporters at The National Enquirer scrambling as I write. I know why it was said... And the reason is ugly... Whether the statement was true or not.

But I'll say this: If the Republican nominee for president was Condoleeza Rice, and a similar story had been dropped about her, the story would be on the front page of The New York Times this morning.

UPDATE: Thanks to an anonymous commenter, we know the name of the man Kasich was interviewing - Floyd Brown... And his website -

Barack Obama: The Child - The Messiah - The Obamessiah

King Bill, the Priapic. Priceless.

The Latest Addition to My Home's Ambiance

I've been a Notre Dame Football fan since 1973... I read 4 to 5 ND football web sites every day.

That said...

When the players leave the Notre Dame locker room to take the field, they touch a sign on the stairs for luck. The sign reads "Play Like a Champion Today"

They start the game much the same way I start my day...

You must admit... That's pretty cool.
Will Colon Powell Endorse Obama?

Washington-- It is rumored that Barack Obama has sought and secured the endorsement of former Secretary of State Colon Powell. If true, the Obama Campaign may redouble efforts to bring aboard Bud "Sphincter" Samuels, creating a possible domino effect which will coax political heavyweights Rectum Johnson and Betty Anus into the fold.

The McCain Camp may claim that their earlier endorsements by Frank Butts and Larry Sigmoid adequately balance this latest movement, but an anonymous source deep inside the campaign admitted to Malott's Blog, "This is a heavy load whose ramifications we're just beginning to digest. Obviously it has impacted us, and we are just beginning to feel the strain."

(Yes, I know it's "Colin." Leave me alone.)

Consumed With The Olympics

Like most Americans, the Olympics have completely absorbed and captured my attention. I can think of little else. The color... The pageantry... All those warm and welcoming Japanese people.

I haven't gotten to watch any of it yet, but I have arranged to be off work the week of August 25th - and will be glued to my TV set all that week screaming USA... USA! But that's just the kind of Olympic enthusiast I am.
Obama the Noob

While Russia's invasion of Georgia is troubling, it has given Barack Obama the opportunity to premiere his foreign policy expertise.

In a nutshell: It’s both sides’ fault — both have been somewhat provocative with each other.

I personally would like to get Obama's take on the Nazi invasion of Poland in 1939.

John Hinderaker from Powerline put it best:
It is often said that Obama is not ready to be President, but I don't think this is exactly right. It seems pretty obvious that Obama, given his temperament, his self-regard, his blithe ignorance of history and of the material conditions of life on this planet, will never be ready to be President. He is not unready: he is unsuited for, and inadequate to, the office.

Bible Gateway

I hope every one of my faithful visitors has discovered

And has added the site to their "favorites."

You can pull up any scripture and check it out in any translation, be it NIV, KJV, 21st century KJV... or any other... It is a great resource.

Also see: and check out their morning devotions. I also recommend:

Get up early... Read... And get on your knees... If you are serious about your future.

Time is an artificial and fleeting thing.

Quote of the Day

"If Billy Mays moved in next door to me, I would hang myself."
I first posted this in February of 2006. It merits reposting. I particularly love the comments.

Ribbons on Sticks

I suppose I have Olympic Fever just like everyone else. I haven't watched any of it yet, but that's just because I don't really get emotionally involved until the little girls come out with Ribbons on Sticks. Oh you can keep your baseball and your hockey because what really gets my heart to pumpin' is the NFL, College Basketball, and those little girls with ribbons on sticks.

Now I've seen Michael Jordan dunk a basketball and I've seen Jerry Rice practically levitate as he stretched out to catch a football. But many of the great and more celebrated athletes pale and lose their mystique once you've seen those little girls with ribbons on sticks. Such grace... such grit... such a long ribbon.

Are they in the winter games or do they play in the summer? Anyway whenever they're on I'll be there with my popcorn and Pepsi glued to my TV set, getting all excited, flushed with tension, and cheering like a madman for those little girls with ribbons on sticks.

Ralphetta! I Just Met a Girl Named Ralphetta

(No, really!)

I'm thinking we need some sort of governmental agency whose task it is to review and approve names. I mean... Ralphetta? No little girl deserves that.

The agency should also approve spelling and accepted pronunciation. (Brett) Favre should be pronounced "fav ruh", not "farv." A little boy should never be named "Mathew"... But rather "Matthew", regardless of the intelligence level of his inbred mother.

A little girl should never be named "Loveankisses." (Yep... She exists.)

Also, certain first and last names should not be allowed to coexist. I know of a man named Turly Curd... a nightmare scenario for dyslexics everywhere.

So please leave in comments your worst name experiences... And if you have good name for the govt. agency... I'll take that, too.

In John Edward's Defense

I never saw John Edwards stand at a lectern and claim that he was a saint. I always thought of Edwards as a good Democrat who represented well the morals and values of his Party, and the people who vote for his Party's nominees.

I still do.

The Republican Party still gives lip service to the moral issues of our day. Though inconsistent, they are generally pro-life, and on occasion stand in the way of the gay agenda. There are a few honorable, even Godly Republicans in office, but in general they represent very poorly the people who vote for them.

You can't say that of John Edwards.

When Democrats stood with women who sought the right to kill full-term infants through partial birth abortion... Edwards stood with them. Edwards supports the repeal of the Defense of Marriage Act... As he stands with the Gay lobby.

Everything on God's green earth reduces to a core struggle between good and evil. Everything... Including politics. If during his confession Edwards had looked to the heavens, raised his voice and cried, "Lord, against you, you only, have I sinned and done what is evil in your sight..." He would have betrayed the values, goals, and moorings of the Democrat Party.

John Edwards is a good Democrat.

I think, Therefore I am Created

I just watched Created Cosmos, A Creation Museum Planetarium Show.


I received it free from Fort for answering The Weekly Trivia Challenge correctly... In association with The Peter Heck Show.

My education leaves me a little more impressed with my own little universe of several trillion human cells, which allow me to reason and conclude that - there is no logical reason... No logical source... For the existence of an eternal, physical universe of matter and energy... Governed by physical laws... Measured in time... And I have to question the seeming reality of it all. It really makes no sense...

But for a Creator... That created time and physical space... Whose world is not limited by such physical and measured trappings.

So for a few moments... Before the world comes rushing in... I'll bathe my thoughts... Not in the mundane and little distractions that govern far too much of my life... But in the glory of a God who holds the universe and my pathetic little soul in His hands.

How fleeting these lucid moments are!

Trysting In The Wind

WASHINGTON -- Former presidential candidate John Edwards, who won praise and sympathy as he campaigned side-by-side with his cancer-stricken wife, Elizabeth, admitted Friday he had had an extramarital affair with a Santa Barbara woman who produced videos for his campaign.

It's odd that politicians have affairs and think they won't get caught.

We all Remember Gary Hart and Donna Rice... Although Rice has since turned her life around.

I wish I could claim to be squeaky clean... But I too was caught in an illicit relationship a few years ago.

I remember how cute she looked in her underwear.

I remember how sexy she looked in the shower.

For I am but flesh and blood, and heir to its weaknesses.

I Miss Michelle

Ever since Michelle "For the first time I'm proud of my country" Obama was exiled to Elba, I have missed her profound criticisms of the country I love.

On the bright side, I've finally got The Jefferson's "Movin' On Up" theme song out of my head.
Hilton vs Pelosi

If the Speaker of the House was elected nationally... After seeing Paris Hilton's campaign video and hearing her pro-stance on offshore drilling, I believe she could beat Nancy Pelosi this fall.

No, really!

Quoting Mother Theresa

"I love all religions. ... If people become better Hindus, better Muslims, better Buddhists by our acts of love, then there is something else growing there."

"All is God -- Buddhists, Hindus, Christians, etc., all have access to the same God."

"We never try to convert those who receive [aid from Missionaries of Charity] to Christianity but in our work we bear witness to the love of God's presence and if Catholics, Protestants, Buddhists, or agnostics become for this better men -- simply better -- we will be satisfied. It matters to the individual what church he belongs to. If that individual thinks and believes that this is the only way to God for her or him, this is the way God comes into their life -- his life. If he does not know any other way and if he has no doubt so that he does not need to search then this is his way to salvation."

Before I comment, I just want to say how hypocritical I feel critiquing someone who definitely "laid down her life" in service to God... A spiritual manifestation of which my life is a pathetic example. This woman was an incredible person of self-sacrifice.

Still, I have to ask, where is the Christian love in caring for the poor... If the saving truth is withheld from them? No one comes to the Father except through Jesus. I believe there is no eternal gravity or substance in charity that operates independent of the gospel.

Mother Theresa's works are a stirring testimony to the love of Christ... But the quotations above miss the deeper reality: The eternal healing... The salvation that comes only through a relationship with Jesus.

This celebrated woman is perhaps the greatest humanitarian that ever lived... And surely she knew, in spite of these quotes, that her service to mankind was filthy rags... If performed independent of the Father's sacrifice.

"Many will say to me on that day, 'Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and in your name drive out demons and perform many miracles?' Then I will tell them plainly, 'I never knew you." Matthew 7:22-23

In spite of these quotes, I choose to believe that Mother Theresa's beneficiaries were led to look at the Source of her amazing service.

For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known. 1 Corinthians 13:12 KJV

All mankind, both evil and good, equally performs and teeters on the same precipice... But for one name... Jesus.

Tyson Foods Goes Muslim

Workers at the Tyson Foods poultry processing plant in Shelbyville will no longer have a paid day off on Labor Day but will instead be granted the Muslim holiday Eid al-Fitr.

Union leaders said implementing the holiday was important for the nearly 700 Muslims, many of them Somalis, who work at the plant that employs a total of 1,200 people.

Former employee and Shelbyville resident Anthony Proctor said he thinks what's happening is wrong.

He said he helped build a special Muslim prayer room that's located inside the plant and that no other Tyson facility has been that accommodating for any other religion.

The obvious first mistake? ... The Muslim prayer room.

Barack "Ill Say Anything To Get Elected" Obama... on Drilling

From the Huffing and Puffing Huffington Post:

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. — Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama said Friday he would be willing to support limited additional offshore oil drilling if that's what it takes to enact a comprehensive policy to foster fuel-efficient autos and develop alternate energy sources.

Republican rival John McCain, who earlier dropped his opposition to offshore drilling, has been criticizing Obama on the stump and in broadcast ads for clinging to his opposition as gasoline prices topped $4 a gallon. Polls indicate these attacks have helped McCain gain ground on Obama.

But a Daily Kos commenter has it figured out:

Please give Obama the benefit of the doubt. Off Shore oil drilling is polling at over 70%. We have a much better chance of it not happening if Obama wins.

How true.

My Recent "Amazon" Purchase

Starting from the lower left... Nelson DeMille is one of my favorite authors whose character development and style always entertains.

The Princess and the Kiss is a story about God's Gift of Purity, and was recommended by Nancy Leigh DeMoss. I bought it for my eldest nephew... Who, in my heart, I still hope is still pure... Though the fact that he and his wife have conceived a daughter burdens me with doubt.

The Last Words of Saints and Sinners is a favorite of Michael Easley, the president of Moody Bible Institute... And I plan to incorporate a weekly "Last Words" post from said tome on Malott's Blog... When I finally get around to reading it... The book, that is.

The video "Pride and Prejudice" and Bryson's Book were purchased due to the influence of a certain blogger, who will remain unnamed... And who will no doubt consider it a kind of triumph that she influenced me to buy them... Which I find only moderately annoying.

Yes... Yes... I'm well aware... P&P is a chick flick. But it's... well... just so good. And I couldn't tolerate sitting through all those tedious commercials when it played on the Oxygen channel. Art should never be sifted and partitioned with the peddling of female gizmos and accoutrements... Something I feel very strongly about.
