Sun-Times: Davis to drop out of mayor's race, will support clownish Moseley Braun

Wow...I didn't see this one coming. Well, not in this fashion. The Chicago Sun-Times is reporting that US Rep. Danny Davis (D-7th) will drop out of Chicago's mayoral race and back Carol Moseley Braun, a former US Senator and someone I like to call Carol Mostly Clown. Yes, she was that bad as a senator.

The Reverend Jesse Jackson, the leading proprietor in the  contemporary racism industry, met with Davis and Moseley Braun two night ago at Rainbow PUSH headquarters with the goal of getting one of the two remaining major African American candidates to drop out. He wants the city's blacks to unite behind one person--and elect an African American mayor.

Election Day is February 22. If none of the ten or so candidates gain a majority of the vote, the two remaining candidates will face off in an April run-off.

Ronald Reagan float in New Year's Day Tournament of Roses Parade

The greatest president of my lifetime, Ronald Reagan, will be honored by a float in the annual Tournament of Roses Parade in Pasadena on New Year's Day.

2011 will be a big year for Reaganophiles, the Gipper was born on February 6, 1911 in Tampico, Illinois.

Click here (be patient, it will take time for it to upload) to see a KNBC-TV report on the float. The Hope for America has video as well, which uploads immediately.

On New Year's Day, you win one more for the Gipper by voting for the Reagan float, but only between 8am to 2:10pm Pacific Standard Time. How? You can either text “Float52″ to “50649″ of visit the Tournament of Roses Parade site.

Hat tip to Doug Ross.

From English Russia: Happy Soviet New Year!

Mrs. Marathon Pundit, who grew up in the Soviet Union, tells me that New Year's Eve was a little bit different there. It was a time for costumes--almost Halloween-like, although scary outfits were rare. And Santa Claus, whom the commies called "Grandfather Frost," was a part of those celebrations.

English Russia looks back at that time.

Most of the pictures are in black-and-white. Color photographs were quite rare in the worker's paradise, as Mrs. Marathon Pundit's collection attests.

British ObamaCare update: Gov't pays for sex change operation, the legal costs, and breast implants

"Excellent healthcare is by definition redistributional. Britain, you chose well." Donald Berwick, President Obama's choice to lead the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, 2008.

Unemployed Miranda Lee of Essex, England, formerly known as Raymond Harwood, had a sex change operation paid for by Great Britain's government-run health care agency, the NHS.

Cost to British taxpayers: $93,000 US.

But Lee was told that the NHS wouldn't pay for breast implants. After her operation, she sued, using the Legal Services Commission.

Cost to British taxpayers: $15,000.

Lee won her case, she will get her implants.

Cost to British taxpayers: $12,000.

This is horrifying news, because as you'll notice in my plethora of posts about "British ObamaCare," rationing essential health care is the norm in the UK. The elderly, among the most vulnerable members of society, are especially overlooked by the redistributionalists of the NHS.

Lee told the Telegraph, "Since I found out [about the legal victory] friends have said I'm a lot happier and more relaxed and be [sic] a productive member of society."

Yes, this can happen here one. Not yet, but maybe soon.
