* I mentioned in last night’s ramble, that it might get crazy today.  Frankly I can’t say I’ve never been more displeased to be right.  At least, not recently.  That’s why didn’t get a chance to get in to hit the editor today.  (shrug) Priorities.

* I see John Kerry decided that he’s not going to inflict himself on us, for this election cycle.  At least, not as a candidate.  You know damn well he’s not going to keep his mouth shut, however.  Don’t be surprised if one of the current crop doesn’t decide he should be the vice president.  Democrats, of late, have a tendency to eat their own when they lose.  Witness what happened to Holy Joe.


Israel and the United States will soon be destroyed, Iran’s President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said Tuesday during a meeting with Syria’s foreign minister, the Islamic Republic of Iran Broadcasting (IRIB) website said in a report. Iran’s official FARS news agency also reported the comments.

“Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad… assured that the United States and the Zionist regime of Israel will soon come to the end of their lives,” the Iranian president was quoted as saying.

That’s Ynet News, as noted by Rhymes With Right who, in turn notes:

But the Dems like Harry Reid and Jim Webb insist that George Bush isn’t allowed to do anything but make nice with the mad mullahs and the Holocaust-denying/desiring leader of Iran. Will it take a nuclear holocaust on American soil to get the Blame-America-First Party to come around on the issue, or will continued rhetoric like this be sufficient?

One must assume this to be a rhetorical question.  The party of cut and run, is so heavily invested now in our losing in Iraq, they’d dare not countenance the United States ever winning in that region.  If we do win in that region, they are going to be in serious trouble going forward.  And mark this well; the Democrats will blame George Bush for nuclear attack when it happens on their watch.

* McQ notes that Pelosi broke her promise after all, slipping one by in the night… Dare I say ‘Culture of corruption’?

* Have a good trip, Billy.

* Message to President Bush, RE; the state of the union speech last night.

Mr. President;

Do you really think that kissing the backside of the democrats over made-up hot-button issues like health care and global warming is going to make them not like you less? did your father’s experience with trying to compromise with Democrats teach you nothing?

Please, sir, with all due respect; the Democrats are not going to start liking you, because you’re making the noises they want to hear.  You will do far better, both in terms of immediate situations within the government and in the world, by speaking the plain truth and letting the political chips fall where they may.  That’s a lesson your father’s predecessor learned well, and benefited from.  Too bad that recently we cannot say the same about you.

* Message to Chuck Hagel: Dry up, and SHUT up. your clueless ranting is doing damage to your country that you cannot possibly have the intelligence to understand.

* I see from one of the Raleigh TV stations that Democrat DA Mike Nifong is facing more ethics charges.  Smoking Gun has the court papers on these new charges, too. Is there anybody left on planet earth who thinks he’s going to get a conviction against these college kids?  Is there anybody left on planet earth who doesn’t understand that this is yet another example of Democrat corruption?

I see Ruth Marcus over at the WaPo, saying what I said yesterday:

If George W. Bush proposes something, it must be bad. Such is the knee-jerk state of partisan suspiciousness that when the president actually endorses a tax increase — a tax increase that would primarily hit the well-off, no less — Democrats still howl.

Such is the level of distrust that when the president finally disavows the free lunch and comes up with a program not financed with deficit spending — indeed, one that would actually bring in extra revenue as the years go on — Democrats still howl.

Listening to Democratic reaction to Bush’s new health insurance proposal, you get the sense that if Bush picked a plank right out of the Democratic platform — if he introduced Hillarycare itself — and stuck it in his State of the Union address, Democrats would churn out press releases denouncing it.

This blog and several others already have examples of such turn-arounds by the Democrats…Also the purpose of political expediency, of course.

Now, not surprisingly, Marcus’s writing the column from the angle of the “president is finally coming around “. And of course she manages to blame the president for the problem.  So clearly, while she’s starting to understand it, she still doesn’t have a full grasp of the reality of the situation.
