president mccain

A couple of recent pieces about McCain have caught my attention.

One, Krauthammer wisely points out the "100 year" myth currently being perpetuated by the Left about McCain's military commitment to the Iraq endeavor. One only must remember how long the US has maintained military presence in Japan for 60 years. Korea, 50+ years.

Taking anyone's statements purposefully out of context -- which is how the Democrats roll -- is patently dishonest and points to their own fundamental weaknesses. Apparently they're not too confident they can win.

Two, Michael Luo and Griff Palmer write about McCain's supposed 'money woes' in the patently dishonest NYT. They yammer on about how McCain lacks the support Bush had in 2004 and 2000, he's not inspiring the base like Bush did, the big time Bush fundraisers are staying away... all crap.

You watch. When push comes to shove this fall, the GOP is going to support McCain, along with an extremely healthy amount of Democrats and Independents. Count on it.

a healthy dose

Over the weekend my favorite neighbor cc'd me on an email about Obama, to which there came several replies. One responder, Melissa, wrote the following...
"Just think, we will soon have Allah and God blessing this country with our new President Obama. Our great country will be well covered. IT'S TIME FOR CHANGE!"
I was surprised she acknowledged as fact that Barack is a closet Muslim. Not that I care that much... I have so many policy disagreements with Obama, his religion doesn't even register. And, I actually think it would be un-American to discriminate against him because of his religious preference. That's what I talked about when referring to Mitt Romney's Mormonism, right? We've got to be consistent.

But, I did respond this way:
"'Change' like doubling the capital gains tax? 'Change' like higher taxes for a boondoggle like universal health coverage that will kill the economy? Premature withdrawal from Iraq, ceding it to terrorists? No thanks. 'Change' isn't always good and 'change' the way Obama speaks of it is dangerous and irresponsible.

"McCain is the only qualified candidate."
She came back with:
"No, changes like a fair tax that doesn't allow loopholes for the greedy corporations like the oil companies who are bleeding our citizens(check out their profits). And... medical coverage for all Americans in the wealthiest country in the world where over 30% of the population is without health insurance. AND... ending an unjust war that has only served to promote the growth of terrorism in Iraq and world wide, resulting in over 4000 American deaths and a million Iraquis. And... why is it never mentioned that from an economic viewpoint this war has been catastrophic for this country?-costing us a meer three trillion dollars that could have been spent to upgrade our infra structure, improve homeland security, educate our children, etc etc. The terrorists will remain in Iraq, Iran, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Saudi Arabia, long after our troops pull out- even if it is "100 years from now". International disapproval and hatred toward US has grown thanks to our ill advised, arrogant& ignorant President and his"gang."

"The last thing we need now is a military President who will continue on the same path that has ruined our country economically and diplomatically. Isn't it time to give the "other side" a chance? After all, weren't we all better off 8 years ago????

"It's a great country where we can agree to disagree. Hope you see this as a healthy "debate"!"
Of course, I couldn't resist saying:
"You are entirely correct about 'debate being healthy' and about the 4,000 dead American service people in Iraq.

"But...

"A 'fair tax'? Obama? For all his talk of 'change' and 'hope' he's really just another tax and spend liberal. His tax hikes would 'soak the rich' but that's a misnomer because 'soaking the rich' doesn't impact the rich. It does, however, greatly impact the middle class. And it results in wide and deep job losses, which hurts everybody -- except the rich -- in the pocketbook. It also adversely affects the economy. So, 'fair tax'? Bad idea. Nothing 'fair' about it.

'"Unjust war'? You gotta be kidding me? How could liberating Iraq from the brutal regime of a dictator EVER be thought of as 'unjust'? Short answer: It can't. Saddam Hussein put his political enemies feet first -- feet first! -- into industrial sized plastic shredding machines. His sons ran around the country, wrecking havoc wherever they went. Rape rooms, torture rooms, jails, etc. Not to mention Oil For Food. None of these things the UN or Amnesty Int'l found objectionable, by the way. They're all to busy (taking money from Hussein) talking about how bad Bush is. Go figure. The anti-American organizations around the world say the same stuff as the Democrats. What a shameful example. A hundred years ago the behavior of Pelosi, Reid, Durbin, Kerry, McDermott, Bonior, Boxer, et al. would have been considered treason.

"Disagreeing with the war doesn't make it 'unjust.' Just like opposing the war doesn't make you Liberal or progressive. Liberals should have widely agreed with removing Hussein, based on humanitarian reasons alone.

"'One million dead' Iraqi's? Not even close. This is an outrageous exaggeration, and one that cannot go unanswered. The number is more in the range of 250,000. And who, exactly, is killing those Iraqi civilians? Not American troops. The terrorists are killing Iraqi civilians.

"This is a very important distinction. But what is your point for such wild exaggerations?

"'Weren't we all better off eight years ago?' No. We were asleep as a country. When our leaders should have been protecting us, they weren't. The negligence of the Clinton Administration gave us 9/11. Clinton had the chance to get bin Laden, but he and all of 'his gang' were more concerned about 'jurisdiction' than America's national security. Talk about a a blunder. Then, the U.S.S. Cole was attacked in Yemen -- a pre-cursor al Qaeda attack -- and Clinton did nothing, just like he did nothing about the first World Trade Center bombing in 93. He never met with his FBI Director. That's how disinterested Clinton was in national security. A one of 'his gang,' the incompetent Maddie Albright, badly fumbled negotiations with North Korea. Oh, and the economy was in a recession for all of 2000, Clinton's final year.

"Re: the economy: The Bush economy -- based on the numbers and consecutive quarters of growth -- far exceeds the Clinton economy of the 90's. Indisputable.

"'Giving the other side a chance,' as you suggest, no thanks. Why? We have the Democrats to thank for the rise of fundamentalist Islamic terror in the modern age -- Jimmy Carter failure to support the Shah of Iran in the 70's and Clinton. (See above)

"Certainly, it's true Republicans aided bin Laden and the muhjahadeen in Afghanistan against the Soviet Union -- and -- Saddam Hussein and Iraq against a nuclear Iran, but at those times we were aiding freedom fighters against tyranny. As history shows, realities change. I don't trust any Democrat to make the hard decisions necessary as President of the United States.

"'Greedy' corporations and oil companies -- News flash. They are in business to make money. I think all of us receive paychecks from corporations. Your husband works for a corporation, if I'm not mistaken. We all drive cars, some of us have SUV's. When I first met your husband he drove a 4Runner. The oil companies are the ones finding, exploring for and providing the energy resources we need. Why should they do it for free? Short answer: They won't. And if a company has the knowledge and the expertise to drill 500 miles down into the ocean to find oil, God Bless 'em. They deserve all the money they can get to keep me on the road.

"Oh, and by the way, the price of gas is directly tied to our unwillingness to drill offshore and utilize our own natural resources. We have no one but environmental crazies and weak politicians to blame. Had we drilled in Alaska in 1999, gas would not cost $3.60 a gallon today.

"Socialized medicine? Do we really want America to resemble Canada? Do we want a hospital visit to be the same as going to the Post Office? No. American health care is still the best in the world, flaws and all. That's why people from Canada and Europe come to the United States for treatment all the time.

"'International disapproval and hatred toward the U.S.'? Widely exaggerated and not at all new. I was treated to anti-Americanism when I was in Britain and France during the Clinton years. The correct term is 'jealousy.' And this, while we protect the safety of western Europe with our missiles. How's that for gratitude? This 'international hatred' is one of the myriad of Bush myths perpetrated by Democrats.

"Meanwhile, I believe the man derided by the Left as 'arrogant and ignorant' will eventually be regarded as one of our finest leaders, like President Reagan. He will be remembered in history as another Churchill or Roosevelt. The struggle we face against radical Islam is identical to the threat posed by Nazi Germany. This is the guy who, in eight years, has repeatedly reached over backward to the Democrats, like Ted Kennedy. President Bush, by the decisions he's made in office, has kept all of us safe.

"But believe what you want. Vote for whomever you want. Nothing wrong with that. Just like there's nothing wrong with a cold dose of reality every now and then. I agree with you when you say that America is a great country.

"Why change it?"
I'm waiting for her response.

$292,000

Clinton not paying her staff's health insurance premiums is quite an oversight. Is this an example of how she'd run the country? I thought she had experience with all this crap? What would happen if she were faced with a real crisis?

investigation

Crazy Left wingers (and occasionally otherwise smart buddies) want to label Fox News GOP TV or Faux News. But if that's true why is Fox exclusively covering this '01 Anthrax story?

There's nothing wrong with an American media company being an American cheerleader. CNN and MSNBC should have the same pro-America stance. It wouldn't make them less objective in the least.

The lead story right now on FoxNews.com is the latest with the Anthrax investigation, a story which huge national and international implications. The lead story on CNN.com is about Second Life and busy airports, two irrelevant, under-the-radar stories.

It would appear that, at least at this moment, Fox is the hard news cable network and CNN is the cream-puff news network, wouldn't it?

charges dropped

Another Marine has been exonerated in the Haditha case.

That corrupt son-of-a-bitch Jack Murtha (D-PA) still owes the Marines an apology.

christmas in spring

I've said it before and I'll say it again. Howard Dean is the best thing that ever happened to the GOP.

percentages

From Patrick Ruffini:
"The challenge in modern Presidential campaign is not simply to paint your opponent as wrong on the issues, and to prevail in a civil debate. It is to render the opponent unacceptable to 48% of the electorate, and merely less preferable to 3%. Despite McCain’s troubles with the base, conservative media (and Hillary) are doing the heavy lifting on the unacceptable part. McCain should get out of the way, and jump in ONLY when someone crosses a racial and/or religious line."
Raising taxes and weakening America's national security would be very dangerous changes. Regardless of the opponent in November, McCain just needs to talk about those two things and he wins.

false teaching

This is pretty funny. NOW Obama is saying that he would have left his church had the racist, anti-American Wright not retired.

Uh huh. Barack is beginning to remind me of Bill Clinton. Oh, the parsing.
"Had the reverend not retired and had he not acknowledged that what he had said had deeply offended people and were inappropriate and mischaracterized what I believe is the greatness of this country, for all its flaws, then I wouldn't have felt comfortable staying there at the church," the senator said."
This is like voting for something before voting against it. It's completely illogical. Obama, regardless of what he says day to day cannot escape the fact that he attended Wright's church for two decades.

And when did Wright 'acknowledge' what he said -- and undoubtedly has said many times -- was 'offensive,' and 'inappropriate'? Did I miss the apology?

I wonder what we'd find if we did a closer examination of the kind of hate-filled crap propagated at other 'black churches'? It would be amazing, wouldn't it, if one day African Americans woke up and realized just how much damage and harm people like Jackson, Sharpton, Wright and a multitude of other so-called 'black leaders,' preachers of anger and hate and resentment -- all Democrats -- have inflicted on their community.

payroll

Bob Novak's column today about abolishing the payroll tax is brilliant. I hope McCain is listening.

How about Novak for VP?

indicted

Obama Superdelegate and Puerto Rican Governor Anibal Acevedo Vila was indicted today on 19 counts of illegal fundraising and election fraud over the course of three campaigns.

Tony Rezko, William Ayres, Jeremiah Wright and now this creep? Apparently Obama surrounds himself with crooks, terrorists and racists. And he wants America to believe that he has the 'Judgment to Lead'?

Barack has become just as big a joke as Hillary. Congratulations, President McCain.

bush nostalgia?

Here's a great reason to vote for McCain. According to the Financial Times 'there's no evidence that he would be prepared to alter any important US policy at Europe’s request.'

Excellent. Kudos. He's tough as nails and he never backs down. That's just what I'm looking for in a President. But not the squishy Europeans. One day in the near future, they might actually miss President Bush.

Do I understand the need to listen to our allies? Of course. To respect them? Absolutely. But will I vote for a candidate that is going to do the bidding of Europe on questions of American national security?

McCain might be wrong about Gitmo, interrogation techniques and climate change, but he got mangled pretty good when he was a POW in Vietnam. He's a bit wacky as a result, so I'll cut him some slack, but we'll agree far more often than disagree.

disinvest

Obama wants to nearly double the capital gains tax? And discourage investment? What an idiot! He must have been talking to Warren Buffett again.

Here's the exchange between the Magic Negro and CNBC's Maria Bartiromo:
BARTIROMO: "How do you plan to change the tax code when it comes to capital gains? How high will that 15 percent rate go?"

Sen. OBAMA: "Well, you know, I haven't given a firm number. Here's my belief, that we can't go back to some of the, you know, confiscatory rates that existed in the past that distorted sound economics. And I certainly would not go above what existed under Bill Clinton, which was the 28 percent. I would--and my guess would be it would be significantly lower than that. I think that we can have a capital gains rate that is higher than 15 percent. If it--and if it, you know--when I talk to people like Warren Buffet or others and I ask them, you know, what's--how much of a difference is it going to be if it's 20 or 25 percent, they say, look, if it's within that range then it's not going to distort, I think, economic decision making. On the other hand, what it will also do is first of all help out the federal treasury, which is running a credit card up with the bank of China and other countries. What it will also do, I think, is allow us to make investments in basic scientific research, in infrastructure, in broadband lines, in green energy and will allow us to give us--give some relief to middle class and working class families who have been driving this economy as consumers but have been doing it through credit cards and home equity loans. They're not going to be able to do that. And if we want the economy to continue to go strong, then we've got to make sure that they're getting a little relief as well."
Arrogant rich guys Buffett aren't affected by higher taxes. But for regular Americans like you and me, increased taxes alters our entire reality. And not for the better.

the junk scientist

Gore/Obama? Great ticket. The world's biggest liar and a lightweight, racist, closet Muslim Senator? Yeah, that's really 'a way out of the mess' the Democrats are in.

Why would Gore possibly want to be President now? The bloom would come off of his rose. The scam would be exposed.

And he'd have to take a steep pay cut.

enemies of the state

Remember back to '03, in the run-up to the war, three dim witted lawmakers, Jim McDermott (D-WA), David Bonior (D-MI) and Mike Thompson (D-CA) traveled to Iraq? It was an unnecessary, treacherous, shameful trip for which the three should have been expelled from Congress and executed.

Saddam paid for the trip.

It wasn't about, as McDermott's flack says, 'seeing the plight of the Iraqi children,' since all three were publicly anti-invasion. It was about going to a foreign land and attempting to undermine American policy.

What is about Democrats? What is 'democratic about this type of behavior? Why would any clear thinking, intelligent person allow themselves to be used as propaganda pawns by dictators?

selling crazy

MSNBC's Chuck Todd writes about 'New Clinton Lows' today with the results of a new NBC/WSJ poll.

Hillary's personal numbers are in the tank -- 37% personal ratings. Must have been the sniper fire and that engaging personality.

Meanwhile, 32% of respondents believed the Jeremiah Wright issue had been 'sufficiently addressed' by Barack Obama. Some 26% believe Obama needs to 'address the Wright controversy further.' But 31% of those surveyed 'did not see the speech, or had no opinion.'

Call me crazy, but a Presidential candidate going to a church led by a pastor that regularly said 'nigger,' and 'God damn America,' from the pulpit, in my mind, that kind of disqualifies him for the highest job in the world.

And it's a huge story, yet it was downplayed by the Obama-loving press. Sure, talk radio and Fox News covered it. But the 'objective' CNN and MSNBC didn't and it was buried deep into the 'A' sections of most daily newspapers. No wonder at least 31% of Americans haven't seen it.

Among those who have seen the videos, only 55% of voters were 'disturbed' by the Wright video. That's incredible, too. Todd interprets the data to mean that Obama has only lost ground with Republicans. Before the controversy his net-positive personal rating was 51-28. Now, it's 49-32 with continued strong Liberal support.

sniper-gate

Whenever a President or a First Lady go anywhere, it's a big production. The advance teams, the security details, the restricted airspace, the scheduling. It takes weeks, sometimes months of planning by an army of different people.

It's outrageous to suggest that the Secret Service, who are charged with protecting the First Family, would have allowed Hillary and a then-school age Chelsea, to be in danger at any time, anyplace on the globe. That just doesn't happen. It's not allowed to happen.

How insulting are Hillary's untrue sniper fire comments to all of the people involved in her visit to Bosnia in '96? How dismissive of their sacrifice? It reminds us, yet again, of the Clinton's distaste for the military and their serial dishonesty.

Hillary, running for President based on her supposed 'experience,' routinely just makes stuff up because she doesn't have the experience she claims to have had.

Lying about what happened and then laughing it off as just 'misspeaking' shows the low opinion the Clintons have for all the people tasked with protecting them.

Listen to this interview with Clinton's pilot to Bosnia, Retired Colonel William "Goose" Changose, for this remembrances of that day. It's funny stuff. Changose points out that had there been sniper fire, he wouldn't have let anyone out of the plane.

bargain

I'm asked often about my core political beliefs. Cutting through all the crap, the irrelevant particulars, I think I've narrowed it down to the three most important.

First, national security. Nothing else could possibly matter more. Democrats seem to live in this fairy tale world where nothing bad ever happens, but that's just not realistic. Republicans are realists. In that context, what's good for the United States is what most interests me. Period.

Next, lower taxes. A healthy economy depends on people being able to keep more of what they earn.

Just as vital is the judiciary. While the Left has a difficult time winning at the ballot box, they have slowly polluted the courts and the American legal system with activist judges. The judiciary is rotting and we've got to prevent further erosion/compromise of the Constitution.

bosnia, 1996

As far as lies go, this one's a whopper. Hillary claiming that she had to run with her head down to escape sniper fire when she traveled to Bosnia as First Lady a dozen years ago.
"I remember landing under sniper fire. There was supposed to be some kind of a greeting ceremony at the airport, but instead we just ran with our heads down to get into the vehicles to get to our base."
That didn't happen. There was no sniper fire. No running. No danger. Instead, a welcoming ceremony with a little girl, pictured above.

As if being a target of supposed sniper fire would somehow make her an 'experienced' leader?

This woman is a joke.

I suppose this is what the Democrats might consider to be gravitas.

follow the leader

President McCain leads Barack 49%-42% and Hillary 51%-41%. Too bad it's only March.

The landscape going forward has to favor McCain. Let's go through the list.

Iraq.
Terrorism.
The economy, because he'll cut taxes and the others won't.
Race, he's above the fray.
Partisanship, he's viewed favorably by Democrats and Independents.
Immigration, he'll win Hispanics.
Abortion, he's staunchly pro-life.

Additionally, he doesn't cheat on his wife and he doesn't have an angry pastor. By all accounts, McCain is a hero and a solid citizen. His record speaks for itself. He is experience. I could go on.

You know I'm optimistic. I grow more confident each day of an easy McCain victory.

5 years

Marking the fifth anniversary of the Iraq invasion, President Bush summed it up simply:
“The surge has done more than turn the situation in Iraq around -- it has opened the door to a major strategic victory in the broader war on terror. For the terrorists, Iraq was supposed to be the place where al Qaeda rallied Arab masses to drive America out. Instead, Iraq has become the place where Arabs joined with Americans to drive al Qaeda out. In Iraq, we are witnessing the first large-scale Arab uprising against Osama bin Laden, his grim ideology, and his murderous network. When Iraqi and American forces finish the job, the effects will reverberate far beyond Iraq's borders. Osama bin Laden once said: "When people see a strong horse and a weak horse, by nature they will like the strong horse." By defeating al Qaeda in Iraq, we will show the world that al Qaeda is the weak horse."
Someone really should pose the question. Why, exactly, do Barack, Hillary, Pelosi, Reid, Durbin and most of the other power-mad Democrats want so badly for America to be the 'weaker horse'?

'making it work'

Congratulations to New York's new Governor, David Patterson. He's black and blind.

Oh. And this just in. He's also already confessed to cheating on his wife. And his wife has admitted to cheating on him.

Actually sounds pretty healthy.

truth to power

We continue to capture high level al Qaeda terrorists. Congratulations, President Bush.

Screw the Democrats. Screw you, Nancy Pelosi. Up yours, Harry Reid. You don't have the balls to capture terrorists. You don't care about the national security of the United States. You're too busy reading polls and playing political games.

Advanced congratulations to you, too, President McCain.

hatemonger

I can't help but think that Jeremiah Wright, and his anti-American, anti-Israel, racist views, is going to have a negative impact on the Obama campaign.

Wright officiated their wedding. They're members of his church. They've heard the rants.

And rant is the correct word, believe me. Wright doesn't say God bless America, he says 'Godd--- America.' He talks about hating Jews. He talks about America deserving the terror that came to our shores on 9/11.

No wonder Barack doesn't wear an American flag pin on his lapel. No wonder he doesn't put his hand over his heart during the National Anthem. No wonder Michelle isn't proud of America. They've been brain-washed.

I've stated many times that I like Obama. I don't know if he's a Christian or a Muslim. He's on record as saying that he's a Christian, so I'll take him at his word. I'm sorry that he's such a Leftist because I would very much like to vote for him. I like him much, much less now and I've lost respect for him because of his ties to Wright.

You can do all the 'distancing' in the world, it doesn't change the affiliation with this pig.

$108

Bush is sending Dick to knock some heads on this whole oil thing.

Good. Mr. Vice President, may I suggest "There Will Be Blood" for your in-flight entertainment?

national implications?

Losing Dennis Hastert's congressional seat in a heavily Republican district in Illinois could be a scary sign for the GOP in '08. Congratulations to Bill Foster.

But, guess what? The general election is eight months away. An eternity in politics. And the Democrats are well on their way in screwing it up.

'client 9'

Democrat Eliot Spitzer, the bare-knuckled, corrupt Governor of New York has admitted his involvement in a prostitution ring, Emperors Club VIP. Spitzer was identified as 'Client 9' on a federal wiretap, when he booked a hooker in mid-February.

Congressman William Jefferson, Democrat from Louisiana, had $75K worth of bribes in his freezer.

Harry Reid took and kept Abramoff money. Now he's refusing to ban earmarks.

All we heard in 2006 from the Democrats was this constant charge of the Republican 'culture of corruption,' yet one of their own, West Virginia Congressman Alan Mollohan's personal wealth jumped from $565,000 to $6.5 million in four years! How'd that happen?

We don't really hear about these cases. They've been almost completely swept under the carpet. But what we do hear about, a lot, is the supposed Republican 'culture of corruption.'

Culture of corruption? Sure, the Republicans have had some bad apples like DeLay, Craig, Foley, Cunningham and Rinzi. But there's a key difference. Republicans go to jail. Republicans get harsh media coverage, but when their names are cleared, like in the case of DeLay and when charges aren't filed, as in the case of Foley, nary of mention of it is ever made.

Not only are the Dems corrupt and dirty, they also cheat. How else to describe Tim Johnson being allowed to keep his Senate seat while legally incapacitated for nine months following a stroke?

money

The GOP has a huge edge in money over the DNC. Sometimes, the good guys win.

It must kill the NYT to report this.

aiding, abetting

This post is dedicated to those of you who don't believe in media bias.

An article on CNN.com about Chinese computer hackers hacking into the Pentagon, written by John Vause and linked here, contains this paragraph:
"CNN decided to withhold the address of these hackers' Web site, but Xiao Chen says it has been operating for more than three years, with 10,000 registered users. The site offers tools, articles, news and flash tutorials about hacking."
They "decided to withhold the address" from whom? From our government?

"Arranging a meeting with the hackers took weeks of on-again, off-again e-mail exchanges. When they finally agreed, CNN was told to meet them on the island of Zhoushan, just south of Shanghai and a major port for China's navy.

"The apartment has cement floors and almost no furniture. What they do have are three of the latest computers. They are cautious when it comes to naming the Web sites they have hacked.

"But eventually Xiao Chen claims two of his colleagues -- not the ones with him in the room -- have hacked into the Pentagon and downloaded information, although he wouldn't specify what was gleaned. CNN has no way to confirm if his claim is true."

CNN, an American news operation, doesn't seem to have America's best interests at heart, does it? This is actually beyond mere bias. This is aiding and abetting an enemy of the United States.

wasting time

If there's one thing about the Democrats that drives me crazy, it's this dangerous 'myth' of American unpopularity around the world because of the Bush Presidency.

It ain't true, but a lot of ignorant people believe it.

To the extent that America is hated or feared around the world, that's hardly a new phenomenon. It's called jealousy. You'll have a difficult time convincing me that America is hated when citizens of other countries around the world risk their lives sneaking into this country. That argument just doesn't fly.

To the extent that America is admired and loved, that's not new, either. When two notoriously Liberal Western European nations like France and Germany elect conservative leaders in the George W. Bush mold, well...

Elected Democrats -- and their willing journalistic shills -- should spend their time doing their jobs, not misinforming the public.

'religion of peace'

An 'heroic' attack? Hardly. Arabs, Muslims, Palestinians, people who perpetrate such violence are pigs, pigs that should be slaughtered.

These are the same type of people -- Muslim terrorists -- who attacked America on 9/11, celebrated the deaths of 3,000 civilians in New York, Virgina and Pennsylvania and are still trying to attack us with impunity. These pigs deserve no mercy.

Attacking a Jewish Harav? One of 'the most prominent Jewish educational centers in the holy city,' observers described it as 'a slaughterhouse.'

Let's drop this ridiculous pretense of 'being civilized,' and really go after terrorists. I say we drop bombs on the entire Muslim world, civilian casualties be damned. Let's get their attention and earn their respect, because it's apparent that they don't fear us.

tuesday roundup

I know the Clinton team is lowering expectations, but I have a feeling that Hillary will do well today in Ohio, Texas and Rhode Island.

Especially because the Obama people are now saying that Hillary needs to win by 'healthy double digit margins.' No she doesn't. A win is a win is always a win. Even if she barely squeaks by, and I know, the delegates. This isn't as much about the delegates today as it is about stopping Obama's momentum. If the perception becomes that Hillary's got the 'mo, then the Super Delegates will cease being a problem.

But, even if she does badly, she's still going to win Ohio and she's still not getting out of the race. Pennsylvania looms ever larger on April 22 and Eddie Rendell's gonna serve it up for HRC. Count on it.

So, for Republicans, the fun will continue... Great read about the continuing chaos for the Democrats here.

Canada, Obama and NAFTA? Obama's political posturing on NAFTA is shameless politics. But what's up with our neighbor to the North defending him? Stephen Harper, where are you?

Today should mark the day, at long last, that McCain finally vanquishes The Huck. President McCain has huge leads in Ohio, Texas and Vermont.

The current crisis in South America between Columbia, Ecuador and Venezuela is another great reminder how important it is to elect the Republican in November.

The founder of the Weather Channel, John Coleman, my local weatherman, spoke of "the fraud of global warming" at the '08 International Conference on Climate Change and encouraged lawsuits against people who sell carbon credits. Hilarious! Also, Maggie Thatcher's old policy adviser Lord Christopher Monckton believes that "the scare" will wane and science will prevail.

Truth, does eventually, win.

Oh, and thanks to Brett Favre for all the memories. Dude, you rock.
