Irish eyes are not smiling:  SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) -It took 44 years and three overtimes for Navy to beat Notre Dame again. The Midshipmen snapped an NCAA-record 43-game losing streak to the Fighting Irish on Saturday with a 46-44 victory in triple overtime. All things must come to an end.

I’ve got one in the quips, that runs something like this: There is no such thing as an “illegal immigrant”. Either they are immigrants, who arrived here and live here legally, or they are criminals. The former, are entitled to everything that our society offers, provided that they are willing to become citizens, which by […]

Lucy Laing, Daily Mail(UK) has the good news of the “boy who refused to die.” Commentary by Karen, Doses of Reality: This story has stirred up some conflicting emotions in me. On the one hand you have a heart-warming story of a baby boy who refused to give up and who has defied his mother’s […]

Rich Lowry has an interesting article on Real Clear Politics by way of Memeorandum: Would someone be fit to be attorney general of the United States if he had once said, “I think there are probably very few people in this room or in America who would say that torture should never, ever be used, […]

While working on a theme touch up, I had a computer failure… right in the middle of a transfer. The new theme is just to keep things working until I get the original back up. -Bit Update: (Bit ) OK, the only thing still messed up is the sidebar. Apparently, the file controlling the sidebar […]

The more I read Joe Klein the more I’m convinced the guy is working at being stupid. Nobody could come by his level of stupid, naturally. When he opens with this, you know it’s going to be brainless: I’m puzzled by all the neoconservative bloviating and war-whooping about Iran and the near deathly silence about […]

Captain Ed notes: Pervez Musharraf has declared a state of emergency in Pakistan, apparently not content to wait for the Supreme Court decision on his presidential election victory last month.

Mega-Idiot, Matt Stoller: I like Tom Perriollo, though I find this diatribe on the common good very annoying. Censorship may not be a viable or appropriate solution, but do any of us honestly believe that the ready availability of internet porn is not destroying something sacred within us? There’s lots of stuff that undermines women’s […]

An interesting, but alas, not particularly shocking article appeared over at Q&O yesterday under the headline 8 of the 19 9/11 hijackers were registered to vote. We all saw or are now familiar with the recent dust-up in the latest Democratic debate concerning Hillary Clinton and her support/non-support of NY Governor Eliot Spitzer’s desire to […]

Rasmussen Reports: Tuesday night’s debate was not Hillary Clinton’s finest moment of the campaign season, but there has been little or no immediate damage to her standing in the national polls. In fact, if anything, support for Clinton has ticked up a bit since she stumbled on an answer to questions about drivers licenses for […]
