Speaking of Dan Rather, here’s the latest nonsense from Bill O’Reilly personally I’ve never liked O’Reilly.

Matt Drudge is linkingThe Hollywood Reporter in a bit entitled “Rather deserves respect” which is a laughable statement. THe story itself gives us an example of why… Says Rather: “Ed Murrow’s ghost is here. I’ve seen him and talked to him on the third floor of this building many times late at night. And I […]

Seems the Anti-US, AntiBush hatred we’ve seen from the leftist outlets in Canada like the CBC the Toronto papers, is not nearly as prevelant in Canada as a whole, as it is in it’s press.  AFP reports, in part: ” A loose coalition of groups opposed to just about everything Bush supports had promised two […]

I wrote once that it’s a measure of how far we’ve come in terms of our national security situation that we’re able to argue about the small stuff…  like the exact position of Madanna’s tounge at a given moment… or the latest 15 minute long Hollywood wedding….
