Burma Bloggers On The Run

September 30, 2007
By

As with many things, we tend to take blogging for granted in America. And while what bloggers accomplish here matters from time to time, it’s hard to compare it to something like this. Read it all.

Having failed to stop the cyber-dissidents broadcasting to the world, the authorities have simply...

Romney Up In South Carolina?

September 30, 2007
By

From the American Research Group. It’s interesting in that he wins among Republicans and ties McCain for first among Independents. What will be nice is when we get beyond this polling stage and get to see some early returns from the first primaries. They may go a long way to...

So, Only Our Dead Count?

September 30, 2007
By

This recent post by Crooks and Liars sort of sums up the dilemma of how impossible it is to gain any support for the war from the hapless Left. First the post:

This Week with George Stephanopolis notes the passings this week including the official Pentagon count of 10 troops...

Nuns Of The WWF

Good Lord, as they say:

A convent in southern Italy is being shut down after a quarrel among its last three remaining nuns ended in blows, press reports said Sunday.

Rudy Item: Can You Really Blame Him?

September 30, 2007
By

Crooks and Liars informs us that: Rudy Would Rather Be with Bo Derek than Addressing the Concerns of Black America and features juxtaposed images of Al Sharpton, Jessie Jackson and Bo Derek, who I believe is somewhat conservative.

Okay, so can you blame him? I think I know what choice I’d have...

Deathbed Conversions

September 30, 2007

This one is just sad:

The interview, which included the revelation that (McCain’s) … talking to his pastor about undergoing a full-immersion baptism after the campaign, sent Beliefnet’s irreverent "God-o-meter" spinning.

Did Times Select Make America Smarter?

September 30, 2007
By

Two New York Times items in the news today, Thomas L. Friedman tells us 9/11 is Over and the attack made us stupid. Crittenden responds to that bit of nonsense here. At the same time, in Jena, O. J. and the Jailing of Black America, Orlando Patterson does slightly...

Burma: Murder, They Filmed

September 29, 2007
By

Seems pretty clear what the Burmese police were engaged in wasn’t simply managing civil unrest. This may be a sort of Tiananmen Square moment when it comes to reporting on events in Burma, assuming the world wants to pay attention.

Footage capturing the last, terrible seconds of Kenji Nagai’s life has been...

No Newt Is Good Newt

September 29, 2007
By

I like and respect Newt, think he has a great mind for issues and wouldn’t at all mind seeing him in an administration – just don’t think he’d play well on a ticket. Looks as though he doesn’t think so, either.

WASHINGTON – Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich will not run for...

Rippin’ Rick Moran A New One

September 29, 2007
By

Okay, I have to do this tactfully, as I’ve probably been a little hard on Rick Moran in the past. But I find this to be annoying as hell.

LIMBAUGH IS STILL A GOOSE

I see where some on the right disagree with my take on Limbaugh’s comment. Some suggested I watch the...

Another Nefarious Move On America By MoveOn.org

September 29, 2007
By

Sad but not surprising that Eurotrash funded, America hating MoveOn.org would call up their lawyers to try and silence political speech with which they disagree.

Last week it demanded that the site remove eight items, arguing that they violated MoveOn’s merchandising trademarks.

Trademark law doesn’t confer monopoly rights over all uses of a...

Now You Know Edwards Is Really Done

September 28, 2007
By

Today John Edwards said "’Pretty Soon We’re Not Going to Have a Young African-American Male Population in America" and it hasn’t even risen to a blip on Memeorandum. Video of Edwards here. When he can’t even generate a bunch of attention over such a stupid remark, he’s done.

Aside from that...

Sweet Freedom For Al-Qaeda Leader In Iraq

And to think, he didn’t even require a lawyer to secure his release.

Slavery: Get Over It, Already

September 28, 2007
By

Michael Medved has a piece that basically re-states the obvious when it comes to slavery. Any current political discussion of American slavery has nothing to do with what happened in America’s past. It’s simply fodder for a primarily Democrat liberal agenda that keeps minorities, especially Blacks, as captive today as some...

Bad News From Burma

September 28, 2007
By

A clamp down on media and worse, via Michelle:

As I noted the other day, Burmese bloggers have been crucial whistleblowers and eyewitnesses to history–supplying the world with round-the-clock coverage and photos of their oppressive regime’s crackdown. Now, just as the Western press is lauding their role, the military junta has...

Anatomy of a Left-wing Smear

September 27, 2007
By

The Left has been working hard to gin up controversies attacking conservatives, this latest one is a hoot, having watched it unfold until none other than John "If I wasn’t in Cambodia I’ll eat my hat" Kerry weighs in.

As always, it begins with Media Matters here:
