Well, now.  After years of anti-Ameican nonsense, the Germans are suddenly finding themsleves in serious hot water.

Dean’s World advises us that Max Schmeling has died at age 99. (Shoot, I didn’t even know he was still alive!) Schmeling, as you may recall, was a boxer of some renoun, most infamously, against Joe Louis… and was an unwilling pawn of the Nazis, who suddenly decided he wasn’t much good anymore after the […]

Interesting thread over at OTB; Outside The Beltway : Fascists and Nazis, Democrats and Republicans… and a side comment from me; “I’m not sure which damages the Democratic Party more… that they’re seriously considering Howard Dean as their leader, or that he’s actually the best man for the job.”

Even our lies about Bush’s supposed WMD lies aren’t going to work anymore. So we’re going to change the subject. To prove how much we really support our troops, we’re going to start demanding […]
