Very interesting, from Toby Harnden, Telegraph(UK): Whether or not she[Sarah Palin] runs for the White House – and the solid consensus among Republican leaders is that she won’t – the scramble over the Palin emails confirms her status as a pivotal figure in the race to challenge President Barack Obama next year.

Me at OTB just now: Consider the scenario of capturing UBL alive. The administration is faced with a choice; They can either… a) Go through the process of a civilian trial because that was what they wanted to employ for all terror suspects, giving, as I’ve en saying all along, a platform for alQueida to […]

If these completely arbitrary naked scans and gropings of American citizens by the TSA could actually protect us from terrorists, then perhaps we would be willing to go along with them. But surely it has already occurred to the terrorists — even if it has not occurred to our brilliant president and his beyond-brilliant secretary […]

I have been saying for years now that if the terrorists ever wanted to shut down Washington DC, all they would have to do is make it snow.  2in. or so oughta do it.  The people in and around Washington DC are incapable of dealing with what  mother nature dishes out, or even identify it, […]
