Bumped Update: Actually what pleases me most about the by blog results for the poll below is that my results may be the most balanced results there so far. And while personally, I might prefer it were skewed more in favor than against Alito – I always allow for any...

CBS’s Roberts Comment Disturbing

October 31, 2005
By

I have two reactions to this – maybe three. 1 – Given the forum, utterly repulsive. 2) Should he be fired? and 3) If he coached a damned football team it would be seen as worse – but this we can accept from a major news network? I don’t get it,...

Jason Coleman has a thorough, well broken down round up of issues as regards Samuel Alito. We’ll be hearing about them for a while, I suspect.

It was in flames?? Hey, wait a minute – that can’t be Paris? Everyone knows it’s only the United States that has these kind of problems, right? Not those enlightened nations of Europe? Actually, unlike much of Europe, we’re one of some few countries which don’t have this particular problem...

Can you believe this AP lead?

It’s important to find out who killed Lebanon’s former prime minister. That is why key U.N. Security Council members dropped the threat of sanctions against Syria on Monday, making a last-minute effort to get all 15 nations to back a resolution demanding that Damascus cooperate...

Captains Quarters has more related coverage on the CIA issue I mentioned here.

DiGenova adds that if the trial judge allows the references to classified information to remain in the indictment, defense lawyers will probably attack the CIA itself for failing to take the necessary measures to...

Who’s Minding The CIA?

October 30, 2005
By

I clicked on Instapundit this evening and see that he addressed a topic that’s been very much on my mind since hearing reference to the CIA on Mark Levin’s radio show on Friday. I too am very troubled when thinking about the CIA’s role in the entire Plame affair, not to...

I can’t comprehend an America, or Americans unable to commit to destroying a movement capable of this! Her crime? Being a Christian.

No Al, It’s Called Lying

October 30, 2005
By

Looks like the whole Lying, Liars" meme from Franken’s book fits the little clown as well as anyone else when it comes to knowing what you’re saying is true. I’m not a huge O’Reilly fan – but I detest the little troll Franken. He wants to tear anything down he can,...
