  2. Dobson speaks

    From the transcript of his comments on his radio show re: his much bally-hooed conversation w/Rove re: Miers:What did Karl Rove say to me that I knew on Monday that I couldn?t reveal? Well, it?s what we all know now,…

  3. The ACLU, Katrina and New Orleans inmates

    In the past I have been hesitant to overly criticize the ACLU. However, this is one of the most ridiculous lawsuits I have ever heard.

    The current claim by the ACLU, is that inmates were abandoned for days after Hurricane Katrina, without food or dr…

    American Girl Partners with Radical Feminists

    The American Family Association reports that the popular brand American Girl (owned by Mattel) has partnered with Girls Inc., a blatantly pro-abortion group, through the sale of the “I Can” band.

  6. Band of Brothers

    The character of man has not changed in the last 400 years, but the weapons of war have. The conflict we now face is one that is much different from any that we have fought before. Skills and talents are needed other than the traditional ones exhibite…

    The Big Bloggers

    He’s fighting a war on two fronts; at home and abroad in the Middle East. Now there are whiffs of mutiny in the air. The Captain Bligh Bloggers are after his hide. Can’t we just give the guy some slack? Can’t we at least wait until…

    President’s Advisory Panel on Federal Tax Reform

    Seeing how my pet issue is taxation, I will have more to say about the President’s Advisory Panel on Federal Tax Reform when their report is issued. However, this hint of what’s to come is deeply disturbing:
    One change discussed would lo…

  9. This is news reporting?

    This passes for journalism at the Washington Post? This isn’t the first time I wondered where a Post editor was. I think the column says more about Mr. Milbank than it does about President Bush. After all what kind of personality counts how many times…

    Malkin In The Middle

    And on and on. The big boys (and girls) decided it was spinach and they did not like it. Soon, the baby ducks fell into line.
    Well, OK, everyone is entitled to their opinions. I’m just not really sure if an opinion formed instantly is worth a rat’s …

  11. Nobel Peace Prize as Political Comedy

    Much has been written regarding the Nobel Peace Prize Joke awarded to Mohammed ElBaradei and his fellow Keystone Cops at the IAEA (which I always read as ?IKEA? ? which, in turn, makes me suddenly crave lingonberries).

  12. Grandma Got Recycled

    Someone in Tennessee has taken recycling to a new level. A worker at a recycling plant in Thompson’s Station, Tennessee found a human skull in a trash bag that was jammed in the trash compacter. The worker jabbed the bag with a stick and the skull po…

  14. 100,000 back bill to curb ACLU

    Hat tip NIF for pointing me to WND
    O.K. Folks, we’ve got 18,000 signatures on our petition to stop taxpayer funding of the ACLU in support of Hostettler’s Freedom of Expression Bill. Looks like a larger organization has beaten us to the …

  15. Bush Opens Up Michael Moore’s Strategic Oil Reserves

    Faced with flagging poll numbers in general and a divided base over his Supreme Court nomination of Harriet Miers in particular, President Bush announced early this morning that he intends to open up the strategic oil reserves located in the

    Good Versus Blind Faith

    Josh Marshall, in a recent Talking Points Memo, reveals the revisionist history that underlies both \tilt and Nobel sensibilities.

  17. The real debacle

    What’s stunning about this slander-America hatchet job is that Brzezinski cites not a single attributable or verifiable fact. It’s all assertion of prevailing news-media wisdom. If this is the kind of national security advice Jimmy Carter was getting…

  18. DeLay’s Defense? Go on Offense!

    I posted last Saturday on Congressman Tom DeLay and the fact that he and his legal team are fighting the charges brought against him by out-of-control, partisan, grand-jury-shopping, movie-wannabe, Texas prosecuter Ronnie Earle. They filed charges of …

  19. Gore has no plans to run for president

    There has been speculation in political circles about the possibility of Al Gore making one last run for president in 2008. The AP is reporting excellent news on that front:

    Des Moines Bans Sex Offenders
