South Carolina Ad after the jump:
The Anchoress finds shovels full of disingenuosity* in the Clinton Camp.
I recall reading that Hillary Rodham Clinton was a graduate of Yale School of Law and a partner in the prestigious Rose Law Firm, in Arkansas.
So, it was a little surprising to see her say this while pandering at a job-training center in California:
Clinton…said she understood borrowers who didn’t read their mortgages. “I’ve got to tell you, I skim my mortgage papers. I didn’t read them. I didn’t know there was all that fine print and those pages and pages of legalese,” she said.
[emphasis mine – admin]
So, after – by her count – 35 years of public life, Hillary has “found her voice,” and her voice is full of shit.
Go read the rest…
*I claim coinage!
Those ADT and Brinks alarm commericals have stupid homeowners and stupid criminals in them.
Stupid homeowners who have an alarm system but don’t put in good locks – it looks as though they don’t use deadbolts at all!
Stupid criminals too. There’s the guy who pretends to be a jogger and pretends to tie his shoe and even nods and smiles at the husband as the husband leaves. Then, before Hubby’s even out of sight, stupid criminal puts his hood up (that’s a good disguise) and runs up on the porch and kicks the door in (bad locks). Runs when the alarm goes off. Front porch, broad daylight! He knows she’s awake, she sees Hubby off out on the path. She’s fully dressed, not wearing a robe and slippers. In other words, she’s awake and alert and wearing pointy heeled shoes. He’s dumb.
Then there’s the one where Dad’s away on a trip or something and Mom and the girls are in the brightly lit living room with no curtains or blinds on the window and the girls are dressed in ballerina costumes, and Mom’s taking photos. She sees a face in the window for an instant, then the door breaks in (bad locks)! The alarm goes off! Alarm Company Representative Calls! “We’ll send help right away, Ma’am!” Hey Mr. Criminal Guy – It may be a Mom and two little girls in ballerina costumes, but they are awake! You are apparently at the front of the house in a neighborhood with at least one Mrs. Kravitz… The light helps Mrs. Kravitz spy on her neighbors.
Another one is the beautiful Craftsman that was just sold. The new homeowners are upstairs with all their boxes. It’s raining. Wifey hears a noise. Hubby tries to allay her fears – new house, new noises. He asks if she wants him to help. She does. He goes to the bedroom door at the top of the stairs with a wonderful view directly down the stairs to the front door (that dormer above the front door must be for decorative purposes only). The criminal kicks in the front door (bad locks again) and runs when the alarm goes off. Hubby runs back in the bedroom and slams the door, leaving the front door wide open in the rain.
Wifey turns on the light (no shade on the lamp) and hubby’s up on his tip toes looking out the window for the would be burglar.
There’s a prominent sign in the yard, both that the house has been sold, and that it’s covered by an alarm system.
Now would you try to rob a house where people had just moved in? Everything’s in boxes for crying out loud! Probably even the new homeowners’ don’t know where their valuables are!
For the homeowners in these little stories: Go ahead and get an alarm system. There’s no problem with them, but purchase and install good locks! Also, hope you don’t live where these stupid criminals are.
It’s Professor Althouse’s birthday today (57 – and she’s the one who let that slip!)
Go wish her a happy birthday!
I’d had a lot of Sitemeter hits on searches for Backwards Star Spangled Banner. Searches were hitting here because of an old JibJab post and a book in the sidebar The Cat Who Could Read Backwards.
Today, via Althouse, we have the You Tube Video those searchers have been searching for.

It used to be the World’s tallest, then the Petronas Towers got the title based on a decoration, now there’s an actual taller building in Taipei, the Taipei 101, so the Sears Tower is just the tallest in the western hemisphere.
The Sears Tower still boasts the world’s tallest antennae!
My step-daughter’s in town so we went downtown on Thursday. Yesterday we went to Woodfield Mall and today we’re going to Mitsuwa, The Mall of Japan. My step-daughter spent the last school year in Japan and hopes to return there after her graduation in May.
