Congrats to Erick

Erick Erickson, editor of RedState and fellow redhead, is noted as #65 in “the most influential US conservatives” by the UK Telegraph.

Join the congratulatory pile-on over at Peach Pundit, Erick’s Georgia blog.

Inquiring Minds Want to Know…

why isn’t this man President?

Fausta “waxes” downright philosophical

Congrats to Clan McCain

I take a little time off for R-n-R, hoping to heal up my nasty cold that threatens to take over Rhode Island, and what happens? Somebody goes off and gets engaged.

Happy congrats to Kennedy & Martin and to the proud daddy, too. He’ll be rattling that dang tip jar 24/7 now that he’s got a wedding to pay for!

Pawlenty 2012? Really?

This is welcome news – Tim Pawlenty is seriously laying the groundwork for a run in 2012. Pawlenty, currently governor of Minnesota, is traveling across America talking with conservatives and Republicans. He is quietly assembling a team of strategists and advisors with prior presidential campaign experience. And raising some money.

On a personal note, I heard him speak at CPAC this spring, along with roomie, Fausta and our partner in crime, Erik.

Very interesting….

A Little Something to Cheer Your Holiday Mood

Cynthia McKinney gets to spend the weekend in an Israeli jail. On this most hallowed of holidays, what better place for America hatin’ Missie Moonbat than a jail cell half way ’round the world?


Go Trek Yourself

Hilarious! I just did the family pooch. He makes a pretty good looking Romulan. Here, go have fun!

Why do you look for the living among the dead?

Luke 24:1-7

1 On the first day of the week, very early in the morning, the women took the spices they had prepared and went to the tomb. 2 They found the stone rolled away from the tomb, 3 but when they entered, they did not find the body of the Lord Jesus. 4 While they were wondering about this, suddenly two men in clothes that gleamed like lightning stood beside them.
5 In their fright the women bowed down with their faces to the ground, but the men said to them, “Why do you look for the living among the dead? 6 He is not here; he has risen! Remember how he told you, while he was still with you in Galilee: 7 ‘The Son of Man must be delivered into the hands of sinful men, be crucified and on the third day be raised again.’ ”

Rejoice, for He is risen!

Daniel Hannan, The New American Hero

(h/t Jimmie at The Sundries Shack)

Daniel is the new dreamboat of American conservatives. His speech to Gordon Brown has gone viral, so I’m helping!

Jimmie heard him on Hannity the same time I did:

For one, it is his fierce criticism of obviously failed progressive economic policies that prize theory over reality. I heard Hannan, a few days after his speech, on Sean Hannity’s radio show and was seriously impressed with how grounded in practicality he is. He believes in conservative principles not because they are right in some vague theoretical way but because, when applied, they work. That is a point I wish conservative politicians here in America would make more. We conservatives do not want lower taxes because some economist back in the 20s said that low taxes would be a good thing but because when we all have more of our money to use as we see fit, the economy takes off like a rocket.

And Hannan blogs, too!

New Computer!

And there was great rejoicing….yea!

The family here at Obi’s Sister is doing their part to stimulate the economy.

With new toy, play must I. Now where’s that number to Master Yoda’s tech support?

Auditions and Excerpts and Prayers, Oh My!

I know I’ve been quiet for a couple of days. Thanks to those emailing asking if I’m ok – yes, I am – just a bit overwhelmed! College-Girl, who now is really College-Girl-With-Graduation-In-Her-Sights, has been invited to an audition with one of the Service Bands and many, many arrangements had to be made quickly. Thankfully now all is booked, reserved and arranged and the only worry left is what shoes to wear (her destination is bitterly cold for a southern girl). The trip is an unexpected expense during a time when we’re belt-tightening, but it’s worth it to give her this opportunity.

So I covet your prayers – Sunday night when she and her father are flying north, Monday morning during the audition/interview time, Monday evening (and possibly Tuesday morning) when she and her father are flying home. Prays she plays well, shines in her interviews, and that there are no bumps or bad weather.

UPDATE: Thanks for the many good wishes. She didn’t win.

Jack, Jack, You’re So Whack

Previously on Obi’s Sister: Darth Bauer and Superman Wears Jack Bauer Pajamas

Thoughts on last night’s premier of this season’s 24:

When did Red Forman run for Senate?

The First Gentleman is a real nutcase. Hopefully Jack will be able to torture him.

The computer henchman and faux air traffic controller also played one of the creepiest villains ever on X-Files. Hopefully Jack will be able to torture him.

Speaking of X-Files, who does the new FBI agent remind you of?

If Jack is an unindicted co-conspirator in dozens of crimes, why did she keep handing him a gun?

Tony is the new sneer-meister. If his car really blew up, why doesn’t he have more than on itty-bitty burn scar? Did his face freeze that way after the explosion? Hopefully Jack will be able to torture him to find out who his plastic surgeon was.

Does Janeane Garofalo ever wash her hair? I have it on good authority that Jack DOES get to torture her.

Why was Jack wearing my dad’s raincoat?

Big Hollywood

The blogosphere has added a new star to its firmament*: Big Hollywood from Andrew Breitbart. Yes, that Breitbart.

I like the looks of it – the sordid tales of black-listed conservatives in Tinsel Town. The town that leans so far left, they are about to fall into the ocean.

By the way, check out the post on the upcoming season of 24. Jack – apologize? I didn’t think those two words would fit in the same sentence. I especially like the first comment, evidently from Jack himself:

Relax – I do get to torture and ice Janeane Garofalo. Hey, she’s been torturing us for years.

I’m gonna need a hacksaw.

*Ok, movie buffs, tell me what movie that line is from!
