56 riders from the Tour de (unmentionable country) have been banned.
Once again, the United States Congress has preserved my right to burn the American flag. I paid even less attention than usual to the silly ritual this time, knowing full well what a silly, intentionally futile charade the whole affair was. As such, I spared myself from having to read or hear anyone declaring that American servicemen have given their lives to preserve my freedom to burn flags. But I have no doubt that somebody resurrected that tired cliché just as reliably as Republicans revive flag protection amendments in election years.
Powerline reports that Henry David sent a sarcastic congratulatory letter to the New York Times thanking them for blowing another top secret anti-terror intelligence operation. They took it seriously and and quickly thanked the author.
If the Bush Administration hopes to win the war on terror, it will first have to win the war with the New York Times.
Thank God that Franklin Delano Roosevelt did not have to contend with the modern incarnation of his own party. We’d still be fighting World War II – assuming that is that Jack Murtha and John Kerry had not managed to force a humiliating surrender upon us. That the Democrats are the party of defeatism is indisputable. That this creates an image problem for the Democrats that will haunt them on election day is equally indisputable. And so the Democrats have chosen a couple of occasions to pound their hairless chests and squeak out totally inappropriate and ill-timed primal calls of hawkish belligerence that are certain to lengthen a war they claim they want ended.
Bridgeport, Connecticut Mayor John M. Fabrizi confesses to using cocaine while in office.
Dan Rather complains that he has been forgotten by CBS News.
The New York Times published an article last week that actually blamed Ronald Reagan for a business failure in Berkeley.
Actually, it isn't a honkie that New York Democrats are trying to defeat. Just a "white individual."
I'm sure Hillary's difficulties are also Bush's fault.
A honest-to-goodness mainstream anchorette tries out for American Idol.
Ron Dellums is the mayor-elect of Oakland.
Let's see know, John Kerry's surrender resolution lost 93-9 in the Senate and John Murtha's surrender resolution lost by a similar landslide in the house.
The Democrats are so certain of winning the Congress that they're already elbowing each other for leadership positions.
A fact-challenged nitwit like Ward Churchill cold hardly have found a more apporiate forum for his version of events - the Palestine Chronicle.
Why isn't this news reported by the US mainstream media?
So, after six years of listening to liberals call George Bush a liar, a racist, miserable failure, a draft dodger and a war profiteer, the mainstream media has finally had enough of incivility in our public discourse. Of course, it has nothing to do with effluvia from the mouths of Al Gore, Harry Reid, Tom Daschle or Howard Dean. No, the problem is Ann Coulter.
Howard Kurtz unwittingly supplies the essential data.
See his latest ad here.
No, not Ted Kennedy or Bill Clinton. I'm talking about me. It seems that man's taste for food is coded in his genes.
Combat deaths in Iraq surpassed 2500 and neither the media nor the Democrats were celebrating this time. Does this indicated that liberals can learn? If so, it proves that the species is still evolving and developing new behaviors. We might have to start watching them more closely.
Not only was the killing of Zarqawi a good thing in and of itself, but the intelligence collected from his safe house has allowed a huge sweep of terrorists, resulting in the killing of 104, the capture of hundreds more and the seizing of numerous arms caches.
Environmentalist wackos are now blaming night time jet flights for contributing to global warming.
Crap like this could make me starting rethinking that black helicopter crap.
Life was already bleak before the US sent Zarqawi off to claim his bowl of white raisins.
The truth is that Algore is full of shit.
Democratic Representative Alan B. Mollohan, a Democrat from West Virginia and the ranking Democrat on the House Ethics committee has admitted that he filed false financial disclosure forms. The Democrat admitted that he made "a limited number of inadvertent errors" in his forms over the last 5 years.
A University of Colorado committee has recommded that Ward Churchill be fired.
Patrick Kennedy was apparently embarassed that he had received preferential treatment after his DUI stop and demanded that he receive the same treatment that an African-American could expect from the DC police under similar circumstances.
It's true! Vegeterrorists are trying to dictate what you may eat.
Nancy Pelosi is planning to replace Jane Harman with Alcee Hastings as the senior Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee.
After calling the Republican Party a "criminal enterprise" and vomiting up her "Republican culture of corruption" phrase, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi promised that an Democrat victory in November would usher in an era, "that sets standards for civility and integrity."
Three fingernail scratches and John Kerry runs for home. These guys view their duty a little differently.
Honestly, every single Democrat, 13 Republicans and one independent voted for a law that would have created an autonomous, race-based government in Hawaii and would have given that government some very interesting powers: “[T]he governing entity will make a decision as to what happens to independence or returning to the monarchy.”
Markos Moulitsas predicts that Lieberman will lose the Democratic primary.
He's still waiting for those virgins.
I doubt that he had a lawyer present or was told that he had the right to remain silent. Thank goodness for that.
Actually, it's much better than that.
In a remarkable headline, the Associated Press states that, "Native Hawaiians' hope dashed by Senate."
So maybe we should just skip straight to this.
If the Seattle Post-Intelligencer accurately represents the attitudes of Washington's governing elite, then not all conscientious objectors are created equal. Joining hands with Governor Christina Gregoire and the state's Democratic leadership, the PI condemned a decision by the state's Board of Pharmacy that granted individual pharmacists the right to "refuse and refer" when a patron comes into the drugstore seeking to purchase the so-called, "morning after pill." Under that ruling, a pharmacist who finds abortion morally repugnant would be permitted to refuse to supply the pill, provided that he or she directs the woman to a pharmacist willing to fill the request.
A new music video of Zarquawi's demise.
He probably went much too quickly and painlessly. He deserved what he dished out.
Clay Jenkinson writes: "That's what makes Churchill so dangerous. Instead of exploring the messy flux of American history he prefers a simplistic picture in which Indians are uniformly innocent and good, while the white conquerors are uniformly evil and in this case genocidal."
Emphasizing that a nuclear-armed Iran would be "a very serious threat to the U.S. and our allies," Kerry contended that the most conservative estimates are that Tehran is at least five years away from developing atomic weapons.
The Senate's immigration bill seems to contain a clause that is entirely unconstitutional. Nevermind says minority leader Harry Reid, such concerns are just, "technical in nature," and should be ignored.
A college campus is an area where awareness is briefly raised to great heights and the cause quickly forgotten. It is a place of meaningless sound and fury. Hardly a week passes on the academic calendar when we are not asked to be more conscious of someone else’s great concern. In other words, a college campus is a place where moral exhibitionists strut their stuff like peacocks spreading their fans during breeding season.
Dutch pedophiles are starting their own political party.
