The Islamophobia Debate

February 28, 2007
By

There seems to be a disturbance in the force of the Right blogosphere after Dean Esmay enacted what some are calling a purge. At outset, I’ll add that I think this is one of those nuanced debates in which all nuance gets lost. And both Dean and his opponents end up...

Attack On Christianity Part Two

February 28, 2007
By

Okay, maybe not, again. Obviously bogus, it wasn’t written on a tablet. Geesh!

HOBART, Ind. (AP) — Kevin Russell found out it’s not easy trying to cash a check from God. The 21-year-old man was arrested Monday after he tried to cash a check for $50,000 at the Chase Bank in Hobart...

I’ve done probably a total of two posts on MSNBC’s Olberman during over two years of blogging. And those only because Mark Levin smacked him down. Allah has video of Glen Beck talking about Olberman. I know less about Beck, than I do Olberman.

Olberman is a non-entity...

Carbon Offsets For Sale

February 28, 2007
By

Having observed the recent carbon footprint debate, I just realized something. My Father passed away in 1983 and willed his estate to me. Given that he hasn’t used an iota of carbon in decades now, I’m thinking I’m sitting on quite an accumulation of non-carbon wealth.

So, if any Liberals are...

Message To The Troops

h/t reader TG From David H. Petraeus, General, United States Army – Commanding

To the Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen, Marines, and Civilians of Multi-National Force-Iraq:

We serve in Iraq at a critical time. The war here will soon enter its fifth year. A decisive moment approaches. Shoulder-to-shoulder with our Iraqi comrades, we will...

Liberal Blogs Heading Toward A Meltdown

February 28, 2007
By

On news that the Senate and now the House are backing away from de-funding the war in Iraq, the Liberal blogosphere is starting to look like an ice cream cone in an Al Gore movie.

These are just a few early reax – look for many more. There are two lessons the...

Greenwald Inks Second Book Deal

Just happened to catch the anouncement on Memeorandum. I think it’s an autobiography.

Patterico has an early review here.

A reader’s been working on, I believe, an indie flick see saguaroproductions

Here’s a short trailer … love the blonde! Great look! ; )

Gore On Campaign Finance And The Web

February 28, 2007
By

It looks as though Gore decided to not take some time off after his Oscar win. Campaign finance reform and the web? Now why would he be talking about those subjects?

MURFREESBORO, Tenn. (AP) — Former Vice President Al Gore said the rapid expansion of information flow on the Internet could...

Good Reasons For Talks With Iran And Syria

February 28, 2007
By

Jules and some others seem skeptical of potential talks with Iran and Syria. I’ve heard some other hawks are, as well. I’m a hawk, but I still think it makes sense for some very specific reasons.

Anyone care to guess whether anything good will come of this? If it leads to serious...

Now Hillary Has A Real Problem

February 27, 2007
By

According to the Washington Post, the latest poll shows a decided shift among Black voters to Barack Obama and away from Hillary Clinton. If it continues and holds, she may not be able to beat Obama in the primaries.

If she does manage to beat him she can say...

You Remember Ben Barnes, Right?

February 27, 2007
By

Ben Barnes – the reliable source who went on Sixty Minutes to clear up Bush’s National Guard record.

"I’ve had hundreds of phone calls from people wanting to know the story. And I’ve been quoted and misquoted. And the reason I am here today … is that I really want to...

Why Is HuffPo Hiding Cheney Comments?

February 27, 2007
By

I don’t get it, why is the Huffington Post hiding reader comments regarding Dick Cheney?

Over the last few hours, the more than 400 comments appended to the Huffington Post’s news item on the attack in Afghanistan on a base being visited by Vice-President Dick Cheney have been expunged from the site.

Who...

Senator Carl Levin: Attack Into Syria And Iran

February 27, 2007
By

I figured it was BS, that he meant negotiate when he said take action – but the context is pretty clear. Tell me this man isn’t confused.

LEVIN: “It’s more than just — we’re trying to close down the Iranian border area too. The problem is that these weapons are coming...

Obama Confronts Pedophilia Website Over Daughter’s Pics

February 27, 2007
By

Barack Obama’s political campaign confronted a website dedicated to "celebrating little girls in all their splendor" (work safe) for hosting images of the politician’s two young daughters.

A copy of the letter from Obama’s attorney in pdf here. I first posted on this Feb 11. h/t LILO

International Student? Let Me Guess

February 27, 2007
By

Police aren’t releasing the name of an international graduate student who launched a bogus terrorist threat at a Missouri University today. Two dozen people needed to be de-contaminated, just in case.

International? Let’s see … Canada, I bet. Honestly, who knows? But I don’t understand not releasing the name, or details.

ROLLA, Mo....

The War On Christianity

February 27, 2007
By

Okay, maybe not. I mean, if God is going to send you messages, probably best not to paint them on the roof, or broadcast them through a loudspeaker on top of your car. But greeting cards might be nice.

Perhaps some of my Lib commenters will do the compassionate thing for once...

Paging Glenn Greenwald

February 27, 2007
By

There’s never a cabana boy around when you need one. Maybe he’s sock puppeting himself on some street corner in Brazil. Greenwald is always going on about the alleged eliminationist rhetoric of the Right. I doubt he’ll be anywhere to be found as regards these pathetic examples of genuine eliminationist rhetoric...

I Resent These Phony Retards

This woman below seems to have gone to a lot of trouble for her quarter million. Heck, she could have just sat them down at a PC and made them read Lefty blogs for a few weeks and achieved the same thing. Or, maybe that’s how she did it? Hmm.
