  1. Best Practices for Driving Traffic with Blog Carnivals

    Ok, I’m going to start out with a warning to my regular readers: 1. This post is not about personal finances, it’s about blogging. 2. It’s going to be looooooooooong. If either of these turns you off, feel free to

  2. The Iraqi Constitution

    Iraq the Model has the latest breaking news on what the Shias, Sunnis, and Kurds are agreeing (or not agreeing) to regarding the Iraqi Constitution. I’m troubled by one update (emphasis added):

  3. The Dregs of Summer. (Politically Speaking)

    Congress is in recess, the President is on vacation (again), much of Washington is on the Delaware Shore, heck even The Note is away. So there is little, or nothing going on in Washington. Cindy Sheehan and how hard the Democrats will blast away at J…

  4. Second Hussein Letter Discovered

    Former Iraqi President Saddam Hussein recently wrote a letter to a friend in Jordan in which he stated that he was prepared to sacrifice himself for the Arab cause and then called on other Arabs to do the same. The

  5. Old Glory On a Roll

    The Weekly World News reports on a Middle Eastern company that sells American flag toilet paper. The company also has links to Al Qaeda, so you can insert your own “dirty bomb” joke here.

  6. The anti-war left

    As I pointed out a few days ago, old hippies are starting to pop up and ride the anti-Iraq-war train. Shaggy hair, tie-dyes, etc. abound. The latest of the old hippy set to try and relive the glory days is…

    Eulogy for Lincoln (Part One)

    I finished Carl Sandburg’s Abraham Lincoln this weekend. I had been reluctant to do so, from the moment I could discern in the flow of pages that I had come upon the eve of his death by assassination. It was – it is – a powerful testament to a giant fi…

    Uncovered Memos Reveal More Roberts Objections

    News that John Roberts strongly objected to honors bestowed by the Reagan White House on Michael Jackson, has some former critics greatly impressed by the Supreme Court nominee’s apparent psychic ability to look into the future to prevent scand…

    A Challenge to Just War Theorists

    Theologians and Just War theorists should be interested in War Powers by Peter Irons. It goes to the jus ad bellum criteria of Legitimate Authority: only duly constituted public authorities may use deadly force or wage war. NYT book reviewer

  13. Just Because

    Just because an organization supports terrorists, has had leadership amongst the group arrested for terrorism and then doesn’t condemn terrorists, does not mean their terrorists.

  14. My John Roberts Box

    As a volunteer in Hugh Hewitt’s/Radioblogger’s “Adopt a Box of Docs” project I received my assignment yesterday. Box 45. What would it contain? Controversy? Conservative Credential Confirmation? A good quote for my Lighter-Side piece?
    Uhhh . . . …

  15. Why “the Left” Support Appeasement

    Wretchard with a typically well written post compares the mindset of many within “the West” to that which inflicted Britain and France prior to World War II.

    What is appeasement? Appeasement is placating an enemy for the sake of peace, stability, …

  17. The Gaza Gambit: Of Israeli Patience and Palestinian Choice

    I’ve been watching the sad and traumatic scenes of the Gaza pull-out thinking: I know this all might be right at some level geopolitically, but it just is so wrong. I’m not as familiar as I should be with all the details of the deeper hist…

  18. Galen Mulls in the Wrong Direction

    I subscribe to Rich Galen’s e-newsletter, which is e-mailed right to my doorstep three times a week. I like Rich, think he’s smart and insightful and funny and probably kind to puppies and little children. I don’t thin…

  19. New Communication from Congressman Stephen C. LaT

    I would also like to know, why are so many people opposed to a large scale “neighborhood watch” to protect the sovereignty of our nation?

  20. It’s Hard To Explain

    As many of you already know, WunderWife and I are adopting a baby girl from China. We are well into the process and are about to send off our dossier to China. Once it is in China, it will be about 6 to 8 months before we are referred our daughter. Th…

  21. ACLU Vs. National Security

    Perhaps there is no other issue as fragile to the preservation of our liberties than a careful balance between civil liberties and our national security. To its credit, the ACLU recognizes the danger if the scales are tipped too far to the side of na…

    Ellen Ladowski recently wrote an article in the Huffington Post about the link between Star Trek and pedophilia. The article begins thusly. The LA Times recently ran a story about the Child Exploitation Section of the Toronto Sex Crimes Unit,…

  23. Chuck Hagel is a Donkey

    There’s a synonym in there I would wish to use, but it’s still fitting, because there is a certain political party represented by this animal.

  24. PTFer: Russ Feingold

  25. Why I hate clubs

    But it works like this: Every so often, I feel myself compelled to “go out” and see the town, do what normal, civilian-types do on weekends. While I’m generally happy to hang out in the barracks, act like a nerd during the day watching movies and re…

  26. It’s Not Easy Being Right: The Michelle Malkin Attacks

    Michelle Malkin is a columnist/journalist/blogger that has a lot of, well, balls. Personally, I love her and think she’s great. The few emails I exchanged with her during the Pantano case (as well as her work in general) show her to be a very …

    Iraq And Their Constitution

    Go to any newspaper website, or pick one up that is in print, turn on the news programs, or go to any liberal blog and you’re bound to hear about how Iraq has somehow “blown” the consitution question. Basically because the assembly didn’t vote on …
