Looks like Conservative Issues/Com has gone dark. The address still shows on my DNS as going to SimpleHost, but the SimpleHost server rejects all requests. Sad to see him go; CI was running echoes of my weekly column there for a while, and had a nice start on things. No word on what’s happened. I’ll […]

I’m prepareing this site to be moved to a commerical host. As such I’m trying to trim the un-needed bandwidth a bit. An easy way to deal with that is not to display a whole month of posts each time I get hit. I’ve made changes in the archive structure for one week intervals, and […]

In doing some basic research on Weasely ClarkBar, I’ve stumble onto a story originally run on the Voice of America in early August of 1999. Much has been suggested about why Clark got canned, along with many denials that he WAS canned.  There are there options given only one of which makes any sense.  The […]

Silandara’s Blog is a nice respite from the political world, at least for today. Some wonderful writing. Her grandmother has died, and she’s going through a hard time just now. Hasn’t posted in a few days. But what she has up is quite good. A small modification of the tortured artist effect, I suppose. “Nany […]

Me at Drezner’s place this morning. Italics are the person I’m responding to, and below it, my response. I’d like to say I’m shocked by his suggestions, here, but I’m really not, as you’ll see. Don’t be surprised by volitility among the candidates. The number one criteria of a sizable number of Democrats (myself included) […]

Am I the only one who roiled a bit at Pelosi? “But event the most powerful nation in the history of the world must bring other nations to our side to meet common dangers.” Perhaps she wasn’t listening to the same speech I was, where President Bush rattled off a rather impressive list of other […]

Boortz apparently shares my thoights as regards the reaction of the Democrats last night during the SOTU address: “My most vivid memory of last night’s speech was the Democrats clear hatred of the mention of anything relating to tax cuts.  It’s clear that Democrats hate the idea of tax cuts for anyone but their core […]
