'Will Obamacare morph into Herodcare for the unborn?' Hollywood star asks Movie star and Mike Huckabee booster Chuck Norris has dragged the "War on Christmas" into the health care debate. Norris has penned an article in which he suggests that Jesus Christ would have been among many "great souls" who would have been "erased from history" had a health plan similar to the one proposed by the Democrats existed in the Levant 2,000 years ago. In a column published at the conservative Human Events blog earlier this week, Norris suggested that if a government-run health care plan had existed in Bethlehem at the time of Jesus' birth, the shame of Mary's "out-of-wedlock" pregnancy would have pushed her into aborting her child.

Change we can believe in? The American right has found a new champion in the form of retired Lieutenant Colonel Allen West. Appearing in an interview with Fox News’ Sean Hannity, Lt. Col. Allen West argues the case against Obama like few have done before him: he is articulate, well spoken, oh, and for good measure he’s African American as well. West ran for Congress in Florida in 2008 and failed, but he’s going for another shot in 2010. Some parts of the US right are also suggesting he could be Presidential material as well. Whether you agree with his views or not, there’s very little argument on the fact that he is a highly articulate, and able spokesman for the GOP. The Hannity interview as follows:
Before all you loyal disinfo.com visitors get all up in arms about my posting this, please remember that our goal from the time of our founding in 1996 was always to expose multiple points of view on any given issue, and more than anything to highlight media bias. It’s no secret that Fox News Channel has a very conservative tilt, thoroughly exposed by Robert Greenwald in Outfoxed, so take this opinion piece by FNC’s Bradley Blakeman for what it is: an attempt to cast President Obama as an Orwellian Socialist:

The Obama administration seeks to empower a very powerful government agency you have probably never heard of with new and expanded powers that will have a direct consequence on every American if they are successful in their efforts to implement national health care reforms.
The Obama White House is also drunk with power and is seeking to expand the powers of government agencies to oversee and act out to affect Americans in ways that this country has never seen before.

It’s not an Onion headline, folks. Mary Papenfuss writes on Newser:
Even the Bible isn’t conservative enough for some conservatives. The mysterious “Conservative Bible Project” aims to bring the holy book back to its right-wing “roots” by routing out muddy translation and liberal “bias.” That includes no more “gender inclusive” terms that “emasculate” Christianity and rethinking liberal words like “comrade” and “peace.” Economic parables should be clarified to be “free market” lessons, and hell presented as scary as ever and not “downplayed,” states the conservapedia.com site.
I kid you not, here it is reported by the AP
WASHINGTON — Bill Clinton says a vast, right-wing conspiracy that once targeted him is now focusing on President Barack Obama.
The ex-president made the comment in a television interview when he was asked about one of the signature moments of the Monica Lewinsky affair over a decade ago. Back then, first lady Hillary Rodham Clinton used the term “vast, right-wing conspiracy” to describe how her husband’s political enemies were out to destroy his presidency.
Bill Clinton was asked on NBC’s “Meet the Press” whether the conspiracy is still there. He replied: “You bet. Sure it is. It’s not as strong as it was because America has changed demographically. But it’s as virulent as it was.”
Clinton said that this time around, the focus is on Obama and “their agenda seems to be wanting him to fail.”
