"Bush you are a lying failure and a charlatan. It has been 3 and-a-half years (since the arrests)...What happened to us? We have gained more strength and we are more insistant on martyrdom." - Retuers ArticleGee, that sounds alot like what was being said by the Democrats. You draw your own conclusions though.

Just saw this line from Tony Snow on Drudge Report. It looks like it is related to the new Bob Woodward book on the Bush Administration.
"The average Washington memoir ought to be subtitled, 'If only they'd listened to me'" - Drudge ReportAint it the truth!
DNC Chairman Howard "The Duck" Dean, spoke at a Democratic event in Austin, Texas earlier this week saying that the Democrats were going to "take back Texas. And we're going to do it before we take back other states we've lost the last 15-20 years."
To quote the Texans from Gonzales who fought for our independence from Mexico, "Come and Take It!!!". The Democratic party lost this state a long time ago, and there aint no wait that someone as liberal as Howard Dean is going to win us back. Take your screaming back to Vermont jackass.
Don't forget, that this is the man who thought he would win in 2004.

Oliver Stone, the film maker of well known movies such as "Platoon", "JFK", "Born on the 4th of July", and the recent "World Trade Center" is apparantly "ashamed" of the United States. Well there's a shoker for ya, Oliver Stone, one of the original moonbats who chooses to bash the United States in all but one of his movies is ashamed of the United States. Coulda fooled me, I thought he was proud of the US.
Everything I've heard about his most recent movie, "World Trade Center", made me think that maybe he is realizing that not everything that goes wrong in the world is some US Government conspiracy. But statements like this make me think differently:
"Terrorism is a manageable action. It can be lived with" - AP News ArticleWhy should we "live" with terrorism Mr. Stone? Why should we allow our families to "live" with the fear that they could be killed tomorrow because of some jackass' idea that he will personally convert the world to his religion at the tip of a sword?

Just saw on Drudge Report that everybody's favorite tree is now claiming that cigarette smoking is contributing to global warming.
Smoking is horrible for you. And I don't think anyone should ever take up the habit. But this new claim has got to be the dumbest thing that this f*&ktard has ever come up with.
I'll post updates as I find articles about it.
(Update) 8:55 AM
Not really an update because I can't find a damn thing on this. Even Drudge has taken this off his page. But, given the complete lunacy of the statement it is certainly believable that someone in the environmentalism crowd (AlGore included) has come up with this. So in celebration this is what I intend to do.
1. Find the biggest, fattest, smelliest cigar I can.
2. Find a match made from trees from the rain forest.
3. Sit back and contribute to global warming.
(Update) 9:45 AM
Found an article over at the Moonbattery Blog. Apparently AlGore was speaking to an audience at the United Nations headquarters, so you know he got roaring applause.

New York is considering banning trans-fats from restaurants. This makes my blood boil. Let me set the record straight: If you are overweight and have health problems due to it, it is your own damn fault. Period. No one made you eat at McDonald's and super size everything. No one put a gun to your head and made you eat extra helping of dessert. It is your fault. Period.
Lest anyone accuse me of being unsympathetic, I have been there. In high school, I weighed 180 pounds or so. By my sophomore year in college, I was about 225. I was no longer working out or running track, yet I was eating like I was. I made bad choices which led to my being overweight and very unhealthy. Now, I am about 190 pounds, and still losing weight. It is hard. Taking personal responsibility is hard. Life is hard, so suck it up and deal with it. Get your ass off the couch and take a walk. Eat smaller portions and make better choices about what you eat.
Like what you watch on TV, browse on the internet, or buy at a store, you are responsible for what you take in. Giving the government this kind of power is foolish and selfish. Take responsibility for yourself and your actions, and don't rely on elected officials. Don't want heart disease? Eat healthy and exercise. Don't want your kids to see objectionable things on TV or the internet? Then monitor what they watch and browse. They are YOUR children, so act like it.
The creep of socialism must be stopped. Taking responsibility for your own life first is one of the best steps we can take. Lead by example, not words, and others will follow you.

If there's one thing you can take away from Chris Wallace's interview with former President Bill Clinton, its that the easiest way to piss off a liberal is to confront them with the truth. Take the plain and simple truth and put it right in their face.
Time and time again I have seen this on the national scale as well as in my own personal life while dealing with liberals. Take the truth about how their ideas and their policies were less than perfect (shock!), and state it publicly. This will do one of two things (or even both). 1) The known liberals will get red in the face and hot under the collar. 2) The unknown liberals will all of the sudden come out of the woodwork and you will see who else is supporting the liberal idea.
This works every single time. I have seen it personally. Try it folks, it can be a lot of fun.

An interesting idea hit me as I was watching the coverage of Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez's little speech at the United Nations yesterday. Since the first Gulf War under Bush 41 it has been a popular tactic among the enemies of the United States to say that we were only after the oil. They use this thesis against the US for every action we've had in the Middle East (Gulf War, a military presence in Saudi Arabia, Afghanistan, Iraq, and possibly Iran in the future). Their premise is that the Bush family is trying to help out their 'good ol boy' friends in the oil industry by grabbing more oil from fields in the Middle East. I want to propose an alternate to this theory. What if it's not the Bush family that is motivated by oil? What if its really Chavez and Ahmadinejad that are motivated by oil?
When Chavez took over in Venezuela the economy was absolutely bankrupt there. The way he turned it around was to seize the privately owned oil fields turning the Citgo oil company into a state owned company. He then uses the revenues generated by that oil company to give away freebies to the public of all sorts. This keeps him very popular in that country, and thus keeps him from being subject to a coup (a tactic he once attempted on his predecessor). Each time their public opinion polls about him dip he uses the oil company revenues to hand out free stuff. In short, he bribes his people with oil money. As a result, the entire economy of Venezuela is dependent on the price of oil.
In Iran, you have another country whose economy is dependent on the price of oil. Iran sits on one of the biggest oil reserves in the world. The Iranian government doesn't use the same tactics as Chavez with oil, but their economy is still just as dependent on oil.
Over the past few years (in particular since September 11th) the price of oil has been on the rise setting records on a regular basis. The cost of a barrel of oil has risen even into the mid $70 range. OPEC and other countries (including Iran, and Venezuela) that export large amounts of oil have been doing extremely well because of this steady increase in the price of oil.
Experts generally attribute the periodic increases in oil prices to either conflict (or the potential for conflict) in oil rich countries, or to natural disasters that can affect the oil supply (such as hurricanes).
However, oil has been on the decline for the last couple of months. As I write this oil futures are sitting at nearly $61 a barrel and industry experts are predicting it to go even lower (my gas bill is really looking forward to that). Experts are attributing this to a quieter that predicted hurricane season and the fact that the Israel/Hezbollah conflict back in July did not spread to the other countries in the region.
What has this mean for Chavez and Ahmadinejad? It means that the oil that their countries have been exporting have not been bringing in as much revenue. For Chavez in particular this is very bad. If the oil in his country continues to go down in value he will not be able to pay off the people of his country with the freebies he normally hands out. He could then wind up with a coup on his hands and him thrown out of office. For Iran, it means less revenue to pay for their military and for the terrorist organizations that they sponsor such as Hezbollah and Hamas.
So with the price of oil on the decline, what does Ahmadinejad and Chavez do? They have their little Non-Aligned Nations meeting where they gather all the enemies of the US. They talk their tough talk about how they're going to bring down the evil US Empire. Then they come up to the United Nations where they have a captive audience of every major media outlet and do things like call President Bush "el Diablo" and say that the time of the United States running the world is over. In short, Chavez and Ahmadinejad are trying to start a fight with the United States.
Why would they do that? Almost every market expert agrees that a war between the United States and Iran (or the threat of a war) would raise the price of oil, which would then raise the revenue into Iran and Venezuela. This is their motive for their tough talk against the United States.
So the real oil conspiracy that is going on might not be with the Bush family and the oil companies as the left wing moonbats keep on saying. The real oil conspiracy might actually be with the oil rich countries such as Iran and Venezuela. Just my thoughts.

Just saw this over on Drudge Report:
"Fiery Venezuela President Hugo Chavez will 'wrap up' his controversial NYC visit early this morning to return home to Caracas, sources say.Remember that this is the guy who whenever things start getting tough in his own country he starts to accuse the US of trying to invade Venezuela. So don't be surprised if he makes some wildass claim that Bush tried to assasinate him while he was in New York or some other foil hat idea like that.
The president cancelled several appointments previously scheduled in NYC today including a second news conference he was to hold at Venezuela's United Nations mission." - DrudgeReport.com

To all the peace activists that think the Americans and the Israelis use "disproportionate" force. Take a look at this picture.
Pope Benedict of the Roman Catholic Church quotes an ancient emperor's comments on Islam stating that Jihad has only brought evil things to the world.
Gaza Muslims respond by forming a terrorist group stating "every place relevant to Christians will be a target until the cursed infidel - the Vatican - apologizes to Muslims." (Jihad Watch Article)
Wouldn't you call this disproportionate? I'm an Anglican. I'm not a Roman Catholic. But that terrorist group plus a large number of rioters elsewhere in the Middle East are now going to be targeting any and all Christian sites. Any and all Christians. All as a response to the one man's quotation of a historical figure. Would you not call that a disproportionate response? Or are you going to continue to sympathise with "poor Palestinians" (who take up arms and hide behind their own children while firing on civilians).

Mohammed Gaddafi, eldest son of Lybian leader Muammar Gaddafi, is calling on Pope Benedict XVI to convert to Islam in response to the Pope's comments last week.
"If this person were really someone reasonable, he would not agree to remain at his post one minute, but would convert to Islam immediatelyYeah, the Pope is going to convert to Islam. And right after that

I would like to say I am surprised by the cowardice of Chirac and his ilk, but I am not. France has already surrendered to defeat by Iran, and probably by anyone who says "Boo!" to them. The liberals in the West have the same stupid mentality. "We need to talk to them and understand them!!!!!" Horseshit. I understand these ravening maniacs just fine. They want to conquer, kill and enslave all they see. They want the entire world to bow to Sharia and embrace their beliefs. They will not negotiate.
It is time we start treating France as what it is: and enemy of the United States. For years they have done everything they could to stop our agenda. They sell weapons to our enemies, even in spite of UN bans on arms sales to those parties. They undercut us at the Security Council. They lie to us, feigning support, then stab us in the back. I have no problem with a country looking out for its own interests, but don't lie about it. The French caved to the Nazis, and now they are caving to the ideological heirs of Nazism. France is no friend of ours.

An increasing number of public opinion polls are showing problems for the Netroots crowd.
A USA Today/Gallop poll is showing 44% approval for the President and 51% disapproval. This is a substantial gain since their mid-August poll which had 42%-54% for the President.
This poll doesn't just show a 2 point gain in approval. When combined with the 3 point drop in disapproval, it shows a 5 point improvement for the President. Many are attributing the improvements for the President to decreasing gasoline prices and his tour of speeches emphasizing his adminstration's efforts in the War on Terrorism.
Also showing trouble for the moonbats in this poll is the generic Congresional party vote (would you vote for a Democrat or a Republican for Congress). The poll showed an even 48%-48% split between likely voters who would vote for Democrats and Republicans for Congress.
One line though that should concern Republicans is among registered voters the Democrats have a strong 9 point margin (51% to 42%).
What does this mean for Republicans? Get out and vote! Do not let anyone tell you that its pointless! Voter turn-out kept Bush in office in 2004. Voter turn-out is looking like it will keep the GOP in charge of Congress in 2006.
One really good point in the poll is this quote from Reuters:
"For the first time since December 2005, a majority of people polled did not say the war in Iraq was a mistake. The respondents were evenly split at 49 percent to 49 percent, the report said." - Reuters MyWay.com Article

Iran, a country known for their tolerance of other cultures and academic excellence, is claiming that the Pope's comments are the latest in a string of US-Israeli actions "aimed at creating conflict between religions."
"The issue of insulting cartoons and remarks of some politicians about Islam are different links in the conspiracy of the crusaders and the pope's remarks are the latest links in this." - Iran's supreme leader Ali Khamenei, Breitbart.com ArticleSo you see?! Its the Jews!!!!! And if you don't believe him, he'll burn an effigies of you while shouting "death to America" and "death to Israel".
Anyone who thinks that Iran is a stable country is a damn fool. And anyone who thinks that such a "stable" country can be allowed to have any kind of nuclear program (peaceful or military) is even more of a fool.

Every once in a while I do find myself on the side of Bill Maher. Probably because he is one of the few on the left that has enough brains to criticize the Democratic Party Line.
Two weeks ago the Perky One, Katie Couric debuted as the new anchor of the CBS Evening News with an interesting new segment called the "Free Speech" segment where they would have guest speakers to simply express their views on a topic for around 90 seconds. No interruptions, no questioning, no follow-up. A simple pulpit to spout whatever the guest wanted to say. One of the first, and most notable Free Speech guest was Rush Limbaugh.
However, it appears that this segment is only Free Speech to a point. One of the people originally talked about as being a guest in the Free Speech segment was Bill Maher. However, he has yet to appear. MediaBistro.com has learned why.
"On Friday's Real Time on HBO, Maher explained that CBS approached him to do a 'freeSpeech' segment on the new Evening News. He asked if he could talk about religion but was rejected and told that he would be provided with a list of 'approved' topics," an e-mailer says. A second e-mailer asks: "Was he 'free' to express his views as long as he did not touch religion?..." - MediaBistro.com ArticleI have to admit I would not look forward to Maher's rant on religion since he would most likely equate Evangelical Christians with Islamic Terrorists. But that aside, CBS chose to call that segment the "Free Speech" segment. It sounds like it should be called "Selected Topics" instead.

"And if you don't beleive me I'll riot and burn effigies of you!" Yep, Islam, the religion of peace as seen in this picture.
Pope Benedict last week made comments in Germany quoting a 14th century Byzantine emperor who said the prophet Mohammed had brought "things only evil and inhuman" refering to the concept of Jihad and holy war in the Islamic religion. I agree that this was not the wisest thing the Pope could have said. But the way the Muslims are reacting in the streets are as if the Pope had just declared an all out war on them. He made comments that are no different than what people like Hezbollah and Hamas make on a daily basis.
Here's the full quote of what the Pope said:
"He [Byzantine Christian Emperor Manuel Paleologos II] said, I quote, 'Show me just what Mohammed brought that was new, and there you will find things only evil and inhuman, such as his command to spread by the sword the faith he preached'." - DailyMail.co.uk ArticleSo it appears that these are what the rules are:
Do: call Christians and Jews every darogatory word possible (Crusaders, Zionists, Satan).
Don't: respond such comments unless its with praise for their "alternative" view on the world (alternative to western civilization).
Don't: cite historical documents about Islam in any speach.
Do: respond with rioting and threats of violence if such "inconveniant truths" are brought up.
I see how it is now.

Found another good diary post over at DailyKos (they're on a roll with stupidity today). It demonstrates how there is a civil war in the Democratic party. ABBinMI received an election email from former President Bill Clinton who was trying to motivate the Democratic party to get out and vote (strangely no "vote early, vote often" lines though). Here's ABBinMI's response:
"We see the consequences of inaction every day. Inaction by the Democrats in the Senate and in the House. Afraid to oppose the policies of George W. Bush. If they would fillibuster something, anything, it would send a message to the people that Democrats actually stand for something. I'm tired of being told to take action when the very people in a position to take action -- the people we ELECTED to take action -- are too timid and afraid to do so.This shows pretty well the civil war going on in the Democratic party I think. You have the extreme left wing as represented by the likes of DailyKos, and the Netroots crowd. And then you have the DNC establishment represented by people like Clinton. Here's a breakdown of how both sides differ:
With all due respect...I'll take action when they do." - DailyKos diary entry
Establishment: Think about the long term implications of actions taken today on the Democratic party. Try to appeal to the moderats of the country (something Clinton was known for).
Netroots: Stop the GOP, fight the GOP, even if it means stopping the government cold to do it.
What are the end results of this civil war? Alienation of the American people and the destruction of the Democratic party as it has been under the Clinton Adminstration.
Poor bastards. Heehee.

Found this diary entry regarding the upcoming funeral for former Democratic Governor of Texas, Ann Richards. I was never a fan of Ann Richards, I disagreed with almost every policy of her's, and I group her political style in with people like Ted Kennedy and Nancy Palosi. But I do beleive that she deserves respect and dignity at the time of her passing.
But here's what GarySeven over at DailyKos wants to do:
"But - a death in the progressive family means it's time for a funeral. And not just any funeral, but a good ol' rip-roaring, revival-meeting, foot-stomping funeral; the kind that makes the conservatives so crazy; the kind that makes them sniff their noses and say things like "undignified" and gives us a chance to bash them and praise us."Only the so-called "progressives" would hide behind the death of someone to make a series of political statements for the cameras.
"Undiginified", you're damn right it is!

NBC News and the Wallstreet Journal conducted a poll that shows general improvements for the White House's approval ratings and for the GOP's chances in November making the moonbats bark louder.
First, there is a two point increase (to 42%) over July's poll in President Bush's approval rating. Also there is a three point increase in approval of his handling of Iraq (to 38%). These numbers are not huge rebounds and won't win elections for the GOP, but it goes against what the moonbats keep on saying that the Americans are growing more and more dissatisfied with the President and the war in Iraq. In fact the Real Clear Politics (RCP) average has seen a steady incline from lows in the lower 30's a few months ago to 42% today.
But here's the part that is really going to make the moonbats sweat. When asked what their chief concern of both parties were here were their answers:
Democrats Have No Plans - 42%
Republicans Offers No Changes - 37%
Some of Both - 15%
This shows one thing in particular. The Democrats are not making any headway on convincing the American people that they have a plan for solving the problems facing the country. All their talk of a "Real Security" agenda and getting rid of the "Culture of Corruption" hasn't gained them anything. In short they are doing the exact same thing they did two years ago. "Anything you can do, we can do it better". And when asked how, their response is "I dunno".
This is where the focus needs to continue to be. The Democrats have no solutions, only criticisms and threats of impeachment and investigation.

A mother of a missing child committed suicide shortly after being interviewed by Nancy Grace of CNN. During the interview, Grace was pounding the desk questioning the mother whose two year old child has been missing since August 27th.
This is the latest example of the media getting out of control in their coverage of criminal investigations and court cases that are still in progress. This absolutely makes me sick. The MSM goes insane looking for a "person of interest" every time there's a new missing person case that involves some photogenic girl or white child. And once they find that "person of interest" they hound them until the entire world is convinced that person did it (which destroys any chance at an impartial jury in the event of a trial).
Well now they've gone beyond trying someone in the court of public opinion. Trying to one up her own aggressive interviewing style which was born of her criminal prosecutor career, Nancy Grace has now driven a woman to the point of suicide. This is the most despicable thing I've ever seen.
What does Grace's spokeswoman have to say?

Five years ago today, 2,996 Americans were murdered by terrorist scum. They were murdered because they aware not Muslims, and were from a country that Muslims felt had "oppressed and mistreated" them.
I want to make myself very, very clear on this point: I don't give a damn why they feel this way. I don't give a demean that they feel their religion has been insulted or maligned. All I give a damn about is they have, and will continue to, murder innocent people who's only crime is to not be Islamic. Islam is not a religion of peace. It is a religion of torture, subservience, forced conversion, slavery and death. It has been since Mohammed left Mecca and went to Medina. They do not want dialogue, they do not want coexistence. They want submission.
I will never bend the knee to that way of thinking. Every man and woman on the planet has the right to decide what they believe. We all have the right to choose our faith, and to not be forced into it. A man once said, "It is better to die on you feet than to live on your knees." Amen to that. We must stand up and show the Islamofascist scum that we will not stop, that we will fight them with everything that we have.
Remember those who were murdered five years ago. And stand up to make your voice heard, so that no more will suffer the same fate.

We remember Isaias Rivera. As I read through the many other tributes to Isaias it is clear that he was a loved and respected man. Here is a note left on a Semptember 11th Victims web site by a friend of his.
"He was a faithful christian, husband and father. I miss all the good times we had when our families went on vacation together and the times we spoke and share the word of God, but I know one day we will meet again in heaven."Our thoughts and prayers are with Isaias' family.

The moonbats are in overdrive and are going through tin foil faster than ever. This DailyKos diary post is claiming the GOP has put in subliminal messages in the upcoming "Path to 9/11" movie.
The premise is that whenever the movie "tells a lie" (aka: an inconvenient truth about the Clinton Administration) the viewer is bombarded with certain audio frequencies and slit second flashes of light intended to make the viewer uncomfortable. This discomfort, according to the conspiracy theorist, makes it where the viewer will just take whatever information is given to them without questioning, thus moving "left leaning folks move towards the middle, if not all the way to the right".
Here are the precautions that the author recommends:
"If you do watch the movie, make sure you turn down the brightness on your TV and make sure the room you are watching in is as bright as possible. Or watch with sunglasses with a high UV rating. And if you switched to HDTV, lug out your old set if you still have it. Also, turning off surround mode is effective, but the audio frequencies are still broadcast in the main soundtrack. The best thing to do is turn surround on (so all of the frequencies are piped to the surround channel and don't come through the regular speakers) and unplug your surround speakers. If you still have a mono TV, then the audio frequencies probably won't affect you."Can you say Barking Moonbat? I mean, wow! That's just phenominal.

High ranking sources at ABC are telling the SMC that in response to pressure from former Clinton Adminstration officials, ABC has decided to hire the well known Lebanese director "Green Helmet Guy" to perform the remaining 11th hour edits as requested by the officials.
When asked if ABC was pressured by the former spin doctors to use Green Helmet Guy, the source said, "it depends on what the meaning of the word 'was' is".
"'Green Helmet Guy' is well known for his ability to direct video in high pressure situations with hard deadlines. We felt that he is ideal for make the necessary edits to scenes involving former National Security Advisor Sandy Burger, for example. In fact right now he is hard at working using Photoshop to put Karl Rove in place of Burger." - Unnamed ABC SourceThis sets an interesting precedent by bringing in the Green Helmet Guy, and raises interesting questions about what is coming out of the ABC cutting room.

Here's an old (2001) NBC report that details exactly what the Clinton Administration did with Osama Bin Laden in the Fall of 2000. It had actual video from an armed Predator Drone which had Bin Laden in the gun sights. (Hat Tip to Hotair on finding this)
Here's the link the NBC Video.
This video was fed live to CIA headquarters in Langley, and the Clinton Administration said to not kill him. This apparently happened in September of 2000. Now there are two things interesting about when this apparently happened:
- The bombing of the USS Cole happened on October 12th, 2000
- Vice President AlGore was running a campaign to be promoted to President
This report all on its own show what the priority of the Clinton Administration was in regards to national security and in regards to international terrorism.
- Keeping the focus of the nation on Clinton's political strong point, "the economy stupid", was important.
- Getting AlGore elected to the Presidency to continue Democratic control of the White House was important.
- Eliminating a direct threat to the United States which 1) had a history of attacking US Interests both inside and outside of our borders, and 2) had publicly declared war on the US was not important.

The Democrats are going nuts about the upcoming ABC movie "The Path to 9/11". Why are they so upset? Because the "docu-drama" includes scenes in which Clinton Administration officials passed up chances to take out Osama Bin Laden.
Go take a look at the all holy 9/11 Commission that is a favorite of the Democratic party to cite. When you look at the entire history, you will see that the Clinton Administration did in fact pass up three chances to take out Osama Bin Laden.
Now the Moonbats are claiming that their objection is that the movie shows Sandy Burger and Madeline Albright specifically passing up some of those chances. This was a poetic license on ABC's part. But you know what? It was still Clinton Administration officials that passed up these three chances.
- Three chances to kill Osama Bin Laden
- Three chances to prevent the bombing of the USS Cole
- Three chances to prevent September 11th
So, here is your Inconvenient Truth. Bill Clinton was more concerned about the economy and his public approval ratings than he was about the security of the United States. And now he continues to worry about his own legacy rather than the truth.
Get over it Moonbats. Clinton made bad decisions while he was in office just like every president before him, and every president that will come after him. And you know what? The way he dealt with Osama didn't do anything to stop September 11th. At least Bush has impaired him to the point that the only thing he can do is make video tapes and attempt to attack us.
Take a look at these stats:
- First attack on the World Trade Center - response were criminal proceedings
- US Embassies in Africa bombed - response, nothing
- USS Cole - response, nothing
- "Black Hawk Down" - response, pull out
- September 11th - response, War on Terrorism

Katie Couric has now launched her very own blog, and opens with sailing and coffee shop metaphors. I can tell this is going to be some great entertainment over the next couple of weeks. With Couric's launch into the anchor's chair this evening we can expect more great stuff like this:
"We’re going to be surveying the landscape here, and pointing out a few of the more interesting and surprising things we see on the horizon. We’ll be swapping stories, sharing opinions, asking questions and generally just taking stock. In the little village that is CBS News, you might consider 'Couric & Co' the coffee house on the corner, where something is always brewing."My favorite is that she is already showing some hypocracy with her quote of the day. It's a quote from former US President Teddy Roosevelt which basically says its easy for people to criticize from the sidelines. How many times has the MSM (CBS News, and Couric included at the top of the list) criticized the Bush Administration from the sidelines in a manor similar to what Roosevelt said:
"It is not the critic that counts: not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles or where the doer of deeds could have done better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly, who errs and comes up short again and again, because there is no effort without error or shortcoming, but know the great enthusiasms, the great devotions, who spends himself for a worthy cause; who, at the best, knows, in the end, the triumph of high achievement, and who, at the worst, if he fails, at least he fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who knew neither victory nor defeat." - Teddy Roosevelt, Speech at the Sorbonne, Paris, 1910CBS and CBS News is going to implode if this is what is considered anchor material.

"'Hillary Clinton as president -- that would be great,' Jackson said in an interview with German press agency DPA Monday. 'Then she could show all those people who wouldn't trust a woman with such a job.' - Breitbart.com ArticleNo mention of Clinton's views on issues that matter. Just that it "would show all those people". If you vote on someone simply because she is a woman, then you're just ignorant. I take the MLK approach in how I vote. To paraphrase, "the content of your character", not what gender or race you are.

Most people have a favorite sport that they look forward to every year. Right now we have the football season starting. The real diehards of this group buy the NFL packages from their satellite or cable companies and read every statistic there is on their favorite teams and their rivals.
While I do enjoy a good football game, my sport is politics. I watch all the Sunday morning political shows all year long, study every statistic and poll there is, and when it gets down to the game every other November I try to schedule everything around the results as they come in from across the country.
We are now entering into the official start of the election season for 2006. And this promises to be the most exciting and heated competition on record. If you ask 50 political scientists which way they think the election is going to go you truly will get 50 different opinions.
- In the past when an economy is doing well, the incumbents will generally win. But while the bulk of the key economic indicators are saying the economy is strong, we have gas and oil prices at record levels.
- In the past the party that controls the White House generally doesn't control the two houses of Congress. But Republicans have managed to maintain their majority when all the experts said it was impossible.
- The Republican party is considered by many to be vulnerable due to the War in Iraq and the Bush Administration's response to the 2005 hurricane season. But the Democrats are divided between the Netroots candidates (Lamont) and the traditional Democrats (Lieberman and Clinton).
The best preview of this season is what we saw in the Liebermon/Lamont primary in Connecticut. It is going to get bloody, people are going to be saying and doing things (on both sides) that are completely unexpected and in some cases completely appalling (such as Lieberman photoshoped in blackface).
To the Republicans, be ready for a fight. Because its coming to you.
To the traditional Democrats, if you don't act soon and regain focus you will loose your party.
To the Netroots barking moonbats, I quote Shakespeare. "The fool doth think he is wise, but the wise man knows himself to be a fool."
LET THE GAMES BEGIN!!!

Al-Qaeda has put out a new video urging the west to convert to Islam, or else. The speakerin the video is the Californian Islamic convert, Adam Yahiye Gadahn (aka: Azzam the American). He has been wanted by the FBI for questioning for quite some time now.
"To Americans and the rest of Christendom we say, either repent (your) misguided ways and enter into the light of truth or keep your poison to yourself and suffer the consequences in this world and the next." - Reuters ArticleThe video, dated September 2006, is entitled "An Invitation to Islam".

I think this image says it all. Two years ago today, ISLAMIC TERRORISTS took as hostages the children and adults at Beslan School #1. Three day slater, 186 children and 155 adults died after two explosions rocked the school, and Russian troops attempted to storm the building. Some Russian lawmakers have called into question whether or not many of deaths were caused by the Russian response to the terrorists, and those claims may have some validity.
But the blame still lies firmly with those cowards who hid behind women and children. The Chechen "rebels" are terrorists. They are ISLAMIC terrorists. I am tired of the MSM not indentifying them as such. They are cowardly scum who revel in the deaths and suffering of "kafirs". The time for half measures and talk is over. It is time for all who care about freedom and life to stand against these monsters.
Islam has always been spread by violence. It began with Mohammed, was carried on by the Caliphs of Baghdad, the Moors and the Turks. Pagans were given the choice of conversion or death, while Jews and Christians were forced to live in dhimmitude. From Constantinople to Vienna, from Alexandria to Corduba, they conquered and enslaved. If you want to know the fate of Christians in some of these areas, look up the history of the Janissaries.
It is time the world drew a line in the sand. This has gone far enough, it will go no farther. This is not a clash of cultures. It is a clash of freedom against slavery, of life against death, of good against evil. Islamofacism is evil. It is a cancer that is killing the Middle East, and will kill the world unless it is excised. I do believe there are moderate Muslims out there, but unless and until they truly make a meaningful stand against the fanaticism of the Islamofascists, they are no better than enablers for these scum.
It is time for the free peoples of the world to unite against these cowardly thugs. It is time to put aside our petty squabbles and stand, shoulder to shoulder, against the rising tide of fanaticism and death.
IT HAS GONE THIS FAR, IT SHALL GO NO FARTHER.

Charles Krauthammer is one of the best authorities on politics in the Middle East. He writes an opinion piece claiming that Hezbollah leader, Nasrallah has admitted that Hezbollah only won the PR war and lost the actual war on the ground.
It's a good read that I suggest everyone take a look at. Here's the link.
He shows how much of fan of the United Nations he is with the below quote:
"In fact, Hezbollah was seriously set back, as was Iran. In the Middle East, however, promising moments pass quickly. This one needs to be seized. We must pretend that Security Council Resolution 1701 was meant to be implemented and exert unrelieved pressure on behalf of those Lebanese -- a large majority -- who want to do the implementing."Tags: Ahmadinejad, Al Qaeda, Gaza, Hamas, Hezbollah, IDF, Iran, Iraq, Islam, Israel, Lebanon, Middle East, Palestine, Qana, Terrorism, United Nations, War

"'While stating Syrian objections to the presence of foreign forces along the Syrian-Lebanese border, the president committed to me that Syria will take all necessary measures to implement in full paragraph 15 of the resolution,' Annan added, referring to a provision that bans illegal arms shipments to Lebanon." - Reuters News Article via Yahoo! NewsYeah, this is same country that has been helping Hezbollah to arm up in the first place in violation of UN Resolution 1559 which called for the disarmament of Hezbollah a few years ago. This is the same country that assassinated Lebanon's leader last year because he spoke out too much against the Syrian force that was illegally in Lebanon controlling that country. This is the same country that is practically a twin brother to Iran which is currently ignoring all UN resolutions against nuclear proliferation in that country.
But, it great Israel-hating fashion, the Kofi Annan and the United Nations is just going to take al-Assad at his word and trust him to do the right thing.

How do you know when an annual event has run its course? When a joke told by AlGore is the highlight of the night.
AlGore was invited to the MTV Music Awards to speak evidentally. He's about the last person you would expect on such an awards show known for always being a headline getter that would give Howard Stern a run for his money. Nekesa Mumbia Moody describes what the awrds usually are pretty well by saying "Fans watch for the FCC-flaunting skits, nearly naked starlets, foul-mouthed speeches and those embarrassingly bad dance numbers."
So what did AlGore decide to do for his big moment on the stage? He gave a lecture on global warming! Yeah, this is what the teenagers and twenty-somethings that watch this award show are wanting to see.
But here's the worst part, apparently the below oneliner from AlGore was the highpoint of the night:
"I actually was not intending to be here tonight, but then MTV explained that Justin Timberlake was bringing sexy back." - AP News ArticleTags: AlGore, Democrat, Environmentalists, Global Warming, Moonbats, MTV, Politics
