I’m humbled today. I pride myself on having a pretty good musical knowledge base. There weren’t too many songs made during my formative years that got past me. You want to know who did “Pop Music” or who wrote “Der Kommisar”, chances are I”m going to have it in my head somewhere. Oh, that would […]

Wait….what? DAVENPORT, Iowa -Hillary Rodham Clinton said Sunday that President Bush should withdraw all U.S. troops from Iraq before he leaves office, asserting it would be “the height of irresponsibility” to pass the war along to the next commander in chief. The article didn’t mention the presence of a giant spinning hypno-disc, so I’ll assume […]

Oh doom! Oh gloom! The Republican field of Presidential hopefules is woefully inadequate! None are fit to carry on the glorious tradition of St. Ronaldus Magnus! “They all suck”, says Redstate. More than that, they’re all simply horrible, horrible people. Every one of the thus far announced Republican candidates for President sucks. From the lecherous […]

Awwww…..maaaaaan! Senator John F. Kerry plans to announce today that he will not run in the 2008 presidential race, and will instead remain in Congress and seek reelection to his Senate seat next year, according to senior Democratic officials. …who were giving each other high-fives and spraying champagne around the room.

Why is this silly rebuttal thing even necessary? I understand that, once upon a time, networks were afraid of not giving “equal time” to both sides, but the SotU is a special case and it always has been. Oh, and let’s remember that the “equal time” nonsense was the Dem’s baby, thanks to a little […]

If you missed this year’s SotU Address, you can find the text here. I got to hear most of it, thanks to getting out of my choral rehearsal early tonight, and I admit, it was better than I had thought it would be. The President seemed surprisingly at ease and, in more places than I […]

Well, at least one western government is making some sense: PRIME Minister John Howard officially scrapped multiculturalism today as he sacked Immigration Minister Amanda Vanstone and renamed her old department. The trouble-plagued Department of Immigration and Multicultural Affairs (DIMA) will now be known as the Department of Immigration and Citizenship, with former Workplace Relations Minister […]

This sort of thing makes me just a little bit ill: The Senate should pass a fair and clear-cut minimum wage increase for our nation’s working poor, with no special strings attached for business. Last year, Democratic Senators were successful in rejecting the Republican leadership’s cynical ploy to use the minimum-wage proposal as a vehicle […]

It seems that Insight article about Barak Obama spending a couple few years in an Indonesian madrassa really isn’t all it was cracked up to be. Says The Hotline: CNN’s Vause went to Indonesia to check out the school Barack Obama attended, which Insight mag claimed was a madrassa: Vause: “I’ve been to madrassas in […]

I’d not mind hearing this SotU speech tonight at all. An excerpt: I am, more or less, a lame duck. You’ve had your 100 hours of party time. I know. I won’t get any legislation passed without some major bottom-kissing. Maybe something on illegal aliens. That health insurance thing I’ll be talking about later tonight […]
