Michelle Malkin's newest book, "Culture of Corruption" just came out this week, and it's already hitting number one on the New York Times Bestseller List - which I'm sure is making the folks over in the White House real happy.
In fact, you really have to like the full title: "Culture of Corruption: Obama and His Team of Tax Cheats, Crooks, and Cronies".
Of course, thanks to Obama and crew, she had little to no trouble finding examples to write about.
In fact, books by conservative authors are having a bit of a heyday right now. Mark Levin's "Liberty and Tyranny" was number two on the list this past week...and it's been out for several months. And Glenn Beck's "Common Sense" is number one on the paperback list.
All of which makes you wonder at the folks in the mainstream media, as they continue to fight a losing battle against declining ratings, you would think they would take note of the evidence of an obvious hunger for more conservative content. But unlike rats that would normally abandon a sinking ship, those guys (and gals) are determined to ride the USS MSM all the way to the briney deep. read more »
Update:Feds trying to salvage program — Update: House Passes 2 Billion “C for C” Bill
This is a bit a humorous story.
Via Wall Street Journal:
White House officials and lawmakers were studying late Thursday how to keep alive the government’s cash-for-clunkers incentive program because of concerns the program’s $1 billion budget may have been exhausted after just one week.
Obama administration officials warned congressional leaders Thursday it planned to suspend the program at midnight. But the White House released a statement late Thursday saying that completed deals would be honored and the program is still under review.
A White House official said, “We are working tonight to assess the situation facing what is obviously an incredibly popular program. Auto dealers and consumers should have confidence that all valid [cash-for-clunker] transactions that have taken place to-date will be honored.”
Lawmakers are discussing with White House officials where to find funding — including possibly tapping the government’s Troubled Asset Relief Program, or TARP, a congressional aide said.
The clunkers program, which offers rebates of up to $4,500 to consumers who trade in old vehicles and buy new, more fuel-efficient models, began July 24 and sparked a surge in car sales.
