I see that NZ Conservative have already posted this, but it’s so good that I’ll post it anyway.
This ad was to be played during the Super Bowl, but there’s a funny side to that story.
Brian Burch, president of the pro-life group, told LifeNews.com he is upset that NBC officials rejected what he calls a uplifting and positive pro-life ad.
“There is nothing objectionable in this positive, life-affirming advertisement. We show a beautiful ultrasound, something NBC’s parent company GE has done for years,” Burch said.
“We congratulate Barack Obama on becoming the first African-American President. And we simply ask people to imagine the potential of every human life,” he told LifeNews.com.
Burch said NBC told Fidelis that they do not allow political or issue advocacy advertisements.
“But that’s not what they told PETA,” he said about the network’s recent decision to reject an ad from the animal rights group. “There’s no doubt that PETA is an advocacy group. NBC rejected PETA’s ad for another reason altogether.”

And this one too.
In his first few days as President, Barack Obama issued decrees concerning a terrorist detention center in Guantanamo Bay, abortion, and apparently told Congressional Republicans who they should and shouldn’t listen to.
Yet, according to the Associated Press, “he mostly avoided divisive partisan and ideological stands.”
Makes you wonder what these folks were watching this week, doesn’t it, for in a piece astoundingly titled “Obama Breaks from Bush, Avoids Divisive Stands,” Liz Sidoti seemed to be reporting from another planet:
