Captain Ed, who clearly is getting bored, or something. Early winter doldrums?  How does one address a letter to the dictator-for-life of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, Kim Jong-Il? Would it be a “Dear Jong” letter? (Slap!)

Steyn: Up north, the Canadian Islamic Congress announced the other day that at least two of Canada’s “Human Rights Commissions” – one federal, one provincial – had agreed to hear their complaints that their “human rights” had been breached by this “flagrantly Islamophobic” excerpt from my book, as published in the country’s bestselling news magazine, […]

For reasons beyond realm of understanding,  Bill Schneider of the Clinton News Network, a.k.a. CNN, attempted to trot out Ted Sorensen to hold former President Jack Kennedy as some sort of gold standard for religion. Speaking to CNN Senior Political Analyst Bill Schneider, Sorensen discussed Kennedy’s famous 1960 speech and compared it to the speech […]

As promised, I’ve had the opportunity to look over the Romney “I have a Religion” speech. As such things go, it wasn’t bad.  Romney  demonstrated a better public speaking ability than I thought he had.  That was my first surprise.  He articulated his thought fairly well, I thought. That said, let’s get down to what […]

In an Op-Ed in the WaPo today , John Bolton says, in part: Rarely has a document from the supposedly hidden world of intelligence had such an impact as the National Intelligence Estimate released this week. Rarely has an administration been so unprepared for such an event. And rarely have vehement critics of the “intelligence […]

All of a sudden, Memeorandum isn’t crawling BitsBlog. Not sure why. Update: I’m breathing, again. Memeorandum has us listed. What concerned me is I’d made a change to the search engine optimization, and I thought I’d trashed it. Guess not.

Boortz; Would some Rudy Giuliani supporter, or perhaps a campaign staffer, please write and explain to us the value of a home mortgage interest deduction to someone who does not pay income taxes. Simple question … someone should have an answer. Neal… come to me in the first place. The purpose is twofold; The deduction, […]

Captain Ed, yesterday: Dan Bartlett, former White House communications director, won’t keep many friends in the blogosphere after this interview in Texas Monthly. When asked about the relationship between the Bush White House and conservative bloggers, Bartlett responded that, in the words of Forrest Gump, the two were just like peas and carrots. Bartlett bragged […]

I really like Alf   However I would never vote for Alf.   Likewise Mike Huckabee might be a likable person, but his most definitely not qualified to be President.    We live in a dangerous world and Huckabee is simply too naive to ever be President. Clarice Feldman, American Thinker, finds streaks of Jimmy Carter and B.J. Clinton […]

A bloody mess, quite literally, in Nebraska yesterday. The Jawa Report did a great job with tracking the story. And no, don’t start with me about gun control. One armed citizen …as opposed to a store full of sheep….would have ended the situation with a lot less loss of life. And yes, that would have […]

Rich Lowry…. who I have some stout dispute on in terms of the Fair Tax issue (It’d help if Rich actually did some research on the matter) gets it pretty much spot on here, as regards the rise of social conservatives: Remember how evangelicals had “matured”? Remember how the war on terror had replaced social […]

Ruffini tells us the Ronmey ‘Religion” speech (I don’t think it’ll be focused on that quite as much as is being billed)  is going to be on this morning at 10:30 EST. I’ll hold off on commenting until I get home tonight, and have  a chance to read the text.  With all the traffic their […]
