• I note with interest, Mark Levin saying

    “I think one important focus of Reagan conservatives should be to do all they can to protect as many Republican seats in the House as possible. There needs to be at least one elected part of our government that might be in a position to stem what could be a very unpleasant four years.”

    Funny you should say that, Mark, given that’s exactly what the Swamp Stompers are all about.

  • Of COURSE it’s drastic, Billy, and for reasons I’ve already raised here, when I originally raised Coulter’s comments on the matter. Desperate times, requiring desperate measures. Postulate a machine that must be kept running 24 hours per day, that is failing. As a computer support professional I can tell you that often as not the best way to get it out of the failure mode it’s in is to cold start the thing… take it offline for a brief period. I would regard what Perry’s talking about here as a control-alt-delete, in the DOS mode. I would certainly view a Democat Presidency to be a shutdown, and the next election to be the startup. Of course the question then becomes our ability to survive such a restart.
  • A second place finish at the OTB Caption contest. Fromhere we go on to New Mexico, and Ohio and WHHOOOOHOOO!! Ahem. Sorry.
  • Glenn remarks today:

    MEN WITHOUT CHESTS. “Nowhere was this more clear than at the recent menâ??s wear shows in Milan and Paris, where even those inured to the new look were flabbergasted at the sheer quantity of guys who looked chicken-chested, hollow-cheeked and undernourished. Not altogether surprisingly, the trend has followed the fashion pack back to New York.” And there’s this diagnosis: “??People are afraid to look over 21 or make any statement of what it means to be adult.”

    Well, here’s the thing about that; This trend is reflective, as most fashion is… it’s not a leader. What I mean by that is that it would seem to be reflective of what else is going on in society. Has the ‘youth movement’ gone full circle? Look at our politics. What is the big deal in this cycle? A woman running for President with the effective campaign slogan of “I want my MOMMY”. Even in the case of Obama, we’re talking about someone saying how the government ought to ‘protect us’ from LIFE, rather like Children.  So why wouldn’t that extend to a desire to LOOK like 12 year olds?

  • I managed to catch the Shuttle lifting off yesterday in high-definition. I was actually a little surprised they got the thing up, given the weather forecasts had it a 70% chance they weren’t going to go.  Very impressive in high def. Of course watching such lift-offs since JFK was alive, has left me with an understanding of what to expect, but still…  You know, I’d like to run down there and see a liftoff someday.  Particularly, one at night; I gather that’s most impressive of all.
  • We’re still toying with the idea of a Swamp Stomper podcast. There’s logistics to be worked out, but I’m now convinced it can be something special.
  • If there is anyone more disconnected from reality than the Archbishop of Canterbury, it would have to be Ron Paul supporters.  Brown has just earned his pay for the month. The C of E, meanwhile, is dropping in stature daily, thanks to the efforts of the Archbishop. But why do we not recognize that what we’re dealing with is a culture war of the first order…. and that one of the first duties of any government, particularly one under an attack of this sort, is to protect the native culture? And as for the Anglican Church,  when they stopped insisting that Christ was the Son of God, they lost all direction. How can one call themselves ‘Christian” without that basic? And without that identity, you’re going to attach yourself to ‘open mindedness’ instead of Christ, well, this move of pushing Sharia is only one ghastly earthly consequence. Far as I’m concerned, there is a special level of hell for those who mislead worshipers.
  • And by the way, what is the Archbishop proposing? Better read this.
