Sad News On Honduras

October 31, 2009

The Hondurans may have finally caved.  Obama sent some henchmen down last week to put pressure on the Honduran government to return Zelaya to power, and it looks like it worked.  Hopefully, Zelaya’s rule will only continue until the upcoming elections when the people will decide.  From Reuters:

Honduras is on the verge of ending a four-month political crisis after rival camps cut a deal that could return ousted President Manuel Zelaya to power and earn international support for a November 29 election.  Buckling under pressure from U.S. diplomats, negotiators …agreed to put an end to Central America’s worst political turmoil in two decades.

The deal, a diplomatic victory for U.S. President Barack Obama, leaves it up to the Honduran Congress to decide whether Zelaya can be restored to serve the last few months of his term — the question that caused earlier talks to stumble.  A Congress vote is expected in the next few days, after the Supreme Court gives a non-binding opinion on the matter…

Scozzafava Dropped Out!!

October 31, 2009

Will the RNC learn a lesson here?  Probably not.  From the Politico:

asylumofterrorBecause Liberals must go out of their way to find things to be offended about, today’s weenies are in an uproar over the “Asylum of Terror” haunted house in Clinton, New Jersey:

Every fall, the Red Mill Museum here hosts a haunted house.  But this year’s “Asylum of Terror,” has angered mental health advocates who said the theme perpetuates ugly stereotypes.  The show, which ends today, warns visitors of hopeless, mindless and deranged patients lurking in dark corners ready to lunge.

The Libs wring their hands…”So many people white-knuckle through mental illness and don’t realize how it’s impacting their life.  There could be people out there in the audience who are struggling with a mental illness and will not come out and say a word to anyone now.”

Pussies.
