Someone Get The LA Times A Dictionary

October 31, 2007
By

I cannot believe the reader’s representative for a large circulation daily would write something like this:

L.A. Times columnists, Rutten among them, are encouraged to use their columns as forums for their fact-based assessments of news events. His assessments might not match yours, but that doesn’t mean that his assessments...

Republican? So, What’s The Point?

October 31, 2007
By

Betsy Newmark has an item up pointing to the problems facing the Republican Party today, at least some of them. As a Big Tent kinda guy, I get it, however, somewhere along the way you have to ask yourself, what’s the point? Yes, I’d like to see something of a re-alignment...

Edwards: Rudy Will Be Next Prez

October 31, 2007
By

I recall an early debate after which John Edwards attempted to get Hillary to support his efforts for smaller debates with only the serious contenders. Looks like she never got back to him and Edwards is getting real serious now.

Hillary Clinton is "unelectable," so says Edwards in a Halloween edition of...

Malkin Is Indeed Evil

October 31, 2007

Michelle is dressing up as an iPhone for Halloween. Bryan notes it, along with other items at Hot Air.

When I turned 17, driving age in NJ, my Mother thought it would be funny to give me a VW – black, four inches long and filled with some repugnant cologne. Okay, they...

Coming To America?

October 31, 2007
By

After all, Europe often leads the way and American liberals follow:

It adds: ‘Even-handedness dictates that we provide public recognition to minority cultures and traditions.

‘If we are going to continue as a nation to mark Christmas – and it would be very hard to expunge it from our national life...

A Tortured Stunt?

October 31, 2007
By

Follow the narrative on this Huffington Post item, either I’m missing something, or there is an element of dishonesty at play here.

A fellow name of Kaj Larsen is touting an upcoming video item during which he was water boarded. But look at the time frame. Given his stated narrative, it...

HuffPo: Over The Top

October 31, 2007
By

The Huffington Post has never gone out of its way to be responsible in what it publishes. But this is over the top, even for them.

Dennis Perrin, who...

Big Hit On Hillary Mostly A Miss

October 31, 2007
By

Look, I don’t want Hillary to be the next President any more than anyone else on the Right. But has anyone taken the time to go back and read her original quote? She couched it just enough to put her in step with enough people to get by on it politically...

How Government Works

October 31, 2007
By

Government does the most damage on issues that people aren’t paying a lot of attention to, because the MSM doesn’t pay attention to them at all. Michelle will have the vote on LOST. Some video information here.

WND item here:

The U.S. Senate is scheduled to vote today on the ratification of the...

What Was Missing In The Democrat Debate

October 30, 2007
By

So I watched the Democrat debate tonight in its entirety, just taking it in. Is there an industry they wouldn’t attack? From Hedge Funds, Defense, the Airlines, Insurance companies and, of course, the Oil Companies, it seems they all have investigations, regulations, or some restrictions in mind, assuming they flat out...

Or, Maybe: Bruce

October 30, 2007
By

A Lefty blog claims Clear Channel is censoring Bruce Springsteen. Or, maybe people simply don’t want to be lectured about politics by a sixty-year-old with a guitar?

Springsteen’s early stuff was great, but he’s been averaging one good track per release if lucky for years.

The Mormon Issue

October 30, 2007
By

Like Ace, I wish people would get over it. There is no religious test to run for office in America and there shouldn’t be.

Kucinich’s Hidden Charm?

October 30, 2007
By

He’s a sixty-year-old close encountering, unabashedly flaming liberal now questioning Bush’s mental health when most people think it’s Dennis that’s the crazy one. But the dude obviously has something going on we’re not seeing.

For the record, she’s a 6 ft. tall, 29 year-old tongue-studded "hippie chick." And Kucinich wants to...

Finally: Government Waste I Can Support

October 30, 2007
By

While it might be nice to think they’d accomplish something positive if they actually did anything, that does seem like a lot to ask when it comes to DC. While a house divided cannot stand, could we really stand one that wasn’t divided while under the control of the current...

Another Zogby Farce

October 30, 2007
By

Simply reading the headline and kicker for the latest Zogby poll should tell you it’s a bit of a farce, pumping up Hillary when the facts don’t support it. It’s accurate enough, but is it "true?"

Zogby Poll: 52% Support U.S. Military Strike Against Iran

Most see Clinton as the presidential candidate best...

It ain’t so easy being a ex-Muslim in ever-tolerant multi-culti Europe….

Rounding Another Corner In Iraq

October 29, 2007
By

This is news unlike what we are used to coming out of Iraq. It suggests much better intelligence, an on going trend – and that a divide and conquer strategy is working. With Al Qaeda on the run in Iraq, getting the rogue Shia weeded out is major.

Just 24 hours...

I Guess Blogs Matter

October 29, 2007
By

Following up on a question I posited here – journalist Mike Drummond responded in email and asked if I’d mention it on the blog – see below. I think it only fair that if blogs are going to ask questions and often criticize media, we owe it to them to...

Cesium-137 Detected In Scan

October 29, 2007
By

Here’s the brief on Cesium-137, that’s what was discovered in an outbond shipment of debris, ultimately headed to Hong Kong – link below. Without knowing the amount, or the source, the most likely guess would be someone disposing of it improperly.

What is it used for?

Cs-137 is used in small...

A Sure Sign You’re “Around The Bend”

October 29, 2007
By

Call it over the top, around the bend, disconnected from reality, or just plain crazy, but when you post statements like this one, you are certainly beyond the point of being taken seriously.

Another few hours and right-wing blogger Howard Kurtz will have a full Washington Post column on...
