Does the name Leah mean passion and common sense?

This isn’t the only Leah to whom left-wing bloggers, liberal pundits, Democratic Senators, the Speaker of the House and the President of the United Statesshould be listening.

Maybe it’s her name that causes her to say this so well, so succinctly and so passionately?

(H/t Instapundit)



  1. Whew! Nothing is so powerful as an idea whose time has come. Leah has sprayed Joe the Plumber all over the nay sayers and the too cute by half elites.

    The Democrats think they are going to do their Three Card Monte scams without consequence. Meanwhile, the crowd is getting restless. They may not know how the scam is being played, but they know they are being taken, big time.

    The fact is, most members of Congress have made it their career. They get wonderful treatment and lots and lots of perks. They cultivate relations with K Street so that they can always slip into a senior partnership or lobbying job and trade on their connections.

    Here is how their “retirement” works: For example, after 30 years of congressional service and a high-3 average salary of $161,800, the initial annual CSRS pension for a Member who retired in December2006 at the end of the 109th Congress would be:
    $161,800 x 30 x .025 = $121,350
    Federal law limits the maximum CSRS pension that may be paid at the start of retirement to 80% of the Member’s final annual salary…. (Congressional Research Center.)

    They get to keep their campaign funds nest egg.

    The point is, Congressmen rarely have to face a tough call with their districts. They get used to being scolded and then reelected. But The Won has brought the Chicago way to them and the left wingers in Congress are having a feeding frenzy as they raid the treasury.

    Leah is announcing that the emperor has no clothes. She is in rapidly growing company.

  3. Watching the hosts fidget uncomfortably was the icing on the cake.

  4. For some reason, I can’t get more than the first 23 seconds of the clip to play.

  5. Awesome.

  6. Leah made her point very clearly. AND the best thing is that she was not interrupted by the two guys on screen. They let her talk.

  7. Progeny of Sarah. Maybe the tide really has turned.

  8. They let her talk.

    It’s possible they were in shock.

  9. Dan, Love your title, but as a Leah, no Leah doesn’t mean Passion and common sense. Leah means tired, or weak eyed.
    The thought is that the original biblical Leah had weak eyes from crying so much because polygamy meant that she was competing against her sister for the affections of her husband Jacob. She lost that battle, but was quite a formidable person in getting her sons to do her bidding.

    I am very happy to share my name with this Leah from NH. will be going to a local townhall here in CA tomorrow. I am not allowed in, since Adam Schiff is not my congressman (how’s that for democracy?) But of course I called mine and he’s too chicken to have a townhall meeting. I was told to read his opinions on his website. Another great sign of a healthy democracy, my voice won’t be heard.

  10. Saw this one yesterday – priceless!

  11. #9 – Leah, do what others on other conservative sites have done: ask for a face-to-face appointment with your representative.

    If the aide hems and haws on the phone, politely tell them that you yourself are representing 10 voters that you know, and that if they do simple math (I know, impossible for a liberal to do), they will lose hundreds of votes for every 10 constituents they refuse to meet.

    Let me know how it turns out. I’m going to do the same thing to Queen Sheila in my district. (Yeah, lucky me. I have the uppity one.)

  12. Very good points made. This “astroturf” nonsense is unbelievable. Somehow when and “Families USA” (yes, go look that one up, organizing “rallies” with paid members of their staff) host rallies no one is making up lewd nicknames. I wrote my two senators this morning since I see no where they will appear for questions…

  13. Go Leah, go Leah, go Leah!

  14. Watched it again. The way the Indian guy averts his eyes – Still priceless! 🙂

  15. GPW hat-tipped Instapundit. Instapundit links an article about a protest in Austin, TX. The article comes from Austin News,

    Boy, are they shilling for Obama’s plan! Is the whole media like that? (I try to only read economic and financial media, these days. Bad as their news is, it still keeps my blood pressure a bit lower.) Not once but TWICE, the short article slips in this false point:

    [Obamacare] would give Americans a public health care option and allow those who are satisfied with their coverage to keep it.
    President Obama’s health care proposal would give Americans a public health care option, but also allow them to keep their current coverage if they choose.

    It is a false point, because of what it doesn’t tell you; what it leaves out. It leaves out the facts that:

    1) A “company” funded by government money will INEVITABLY drive all but the 1 or 2 richest competitors from the market, no matter how superior all the other competitors’ products were (or how inferior the government’s).

    2) Therefore, the vast majority of Americans will indeed be FORCED to Obama’s awful, rationed plan – when insurance companies close down, just on principle, without waiting to see how much people prefer their products to Obama’s.

    Any media article which doesn’t tell you that is not balanced, i.e., is shilling for Obama.

  16. #15 – ILC, it’s not unusual. Austin is considered the only blue spot in the entire state. We used to call it The People’s Republic of Austin.

    Any town that names streets after both Cesar Chavez and Angela Davis is definitely a few fries short of a Happy Meal.

  17. Yeah, but Austin has those cool bats.

  18. #17 – You mean the ones under the Congress Avenue bridge, or the ones with a (D) after their names that sit in the Legislature?

    Sorry, couldn’t resist. 😉
