Robert P. George on Stem Cells & Debate #2 on National Review Online

Mr. George, John Kerry didn't tell a lie - he just gave a nuanced answer.

Rich Lowry on Election 2004 & Debate #2 on National Review Online

yet something else you wont see in the New York Times.

My Way News

as I suspected, Bush gave Kerry a thorough ass whipping. You can tell by the way in which the mainstream media is reporting the event. Note we're not hearing in breathless terms how wonderful Kerry did, how poorly Bush scowled, etc. Nada. Zip, Zero, Nada. Kerry used the same technique Edwards tried (and as unsuccesfully as well) in not answering any new question directly, but instead, going back to either refute something Bush said, or to add something to what he (kerry) said.
All the little libbys can say is, to quote George Steffie Stephanopolous "Kerry did a better job at remembering the names of the questioners."

the silence is stunning.

Iraqi native arrested for terror plot

Here's some real detective work. How did they ever figure out this man might be crazy?

"However, many residents noticed that his vehicles were heavily painted with numerous political writings in opposition to the war in Iraq such as: "I pray all soldiers lay down their guns", "War Won't Work", "Peace" and "Killing Kids for Oil."
According to the affidavit, the investigation began in August after federal authorities were tipped by an acquaintance of Al-Uqaily that he was seeking to buy weapons.
According to the affidavit, Al-Uqaily told the acquaintance that he was angry about the state of affairs in Iraq, that he was 'going Jihad,' and that he was going to blow up something. "

Yeah, that says it pretty much. But here's the part that's really nuts:
"Authorities said the suspect paid $1,000 to buy two disassembled machine guns, four disassembled hand grenades and hundreds of rounds of ammunition from the agent, who was working with the FBI's Joint Terrorism Task Force. "

$1,000 bucks for all that? And he didn't figure out he was being set up? Geez, a good machine gun will run you in excess of $5000 alone, not to mention all the Class II paperwork, licenses, etc. Oh, wait. Bad guy - no need to worry about laws.

PS: Did anyone notice this:
"33-year-old Ahmed Hassan Al-Uqaily was caught...." Hmm. Good thing nobody was profiling this gentleman, huh?

Victor Davis Hanson on the Middle East on National Review Online

Once more, the smartest guy I know of.
A particularly interesting point:

Meanwhile, Senator Kerry offers neither a plan to stay nor one to leave Iraq, only something "secret." He thinks a country that defeated Japan, Italy, and Germany at the same time as a warm-up to keeping at bay a nuclear Soviet Union and China must fail if she takes on Afghanistan and Iraq at once. His trial balloons so far — beg the Germans and French to come in and give the Iranians clean uranium — have met with polite chuckles. We already know the effect that such warmed-over Carterism will have in Iraq: failure with the added wage of humiliation.

CORRECTIONS (washingtonpost.com)

Page A02. I'm sure it was an innocent mistake. Lead Page One headline. yeah, sure.

An Oct. 7 article and the lead Page One headline incorrectly attributed a quotation to Charles A. Duelfer, the chief U.S. weapons inspector in Iraq. The statement, "We were almost all wrong," was made by Duelfer's predecessor, David Kay, at a Senate Armed Services Committee hearing Jan. 28.

Muslim get-out-vote unit pushes deadline

How typical. I guaran - dam - tee you that if there was a group of right wing Christian radicals who wanted to get their voter registration cards in late, and were allowed to do so, that you'd be hearing that all over the nightly news. But, you get a few hundred Muslims who show up late (all of whom are going to vote for Kerry) then well, that's ok. Liberals suck.

Hey liberals - take a look at what our - whether you want to admit it or not - enemies want to do. I take it that you probably think that we deserve it, and if the islamofascists want to whack a couple of schools, hey, it's no skin off your back.
Maybe instead of wanting to kill the kids, they just want to come and sit around the campfire and hug. Yeah, that's it.

Victor Davis Hanson on John Kerry and Iraq National Review Online

once again, the smartest guy I've read.

A snippet for those of you too lazy to check out the link:

The volatility on the part of Kerry's handlers descends even to the superficial — we do not know whether the candidate will appear pale, tan, or now orange. His hair may be black, gray, or salt-and-pepper, his lines smoothed or creased — radical changes in appearance that transcend even the wear and tear of the campaign and become a metaphor for his fluctuating message. Windsurfing, orange dye on the epidermis, whitened teeth, hair tint, and teenager runabout clothes — these are not the things that captivate auto workers, farmers, miners, and welders. So everything else Kerry has done in this disastrous campaign has only added to the image that he is an undisciplined and contradictory thinker without either strong beliefs or the moral courage to risk offending critics in pursuing his ideals


Ban stuff. Just like the you-know-who's are always trying to do.

Saddam worked secretly on WMDs - The Washington Times: Nation/Politics - October 07, 2004

how odd - this is the same report the libby's are crying about, yet the article does not come to the same conclusion that the others do. I'm sure there's no bias in the mainstream media. None at all.

Edwards: Bush 'In Denial About Everything'

"Noting that the Bush's advisers had billed Bush's speech as a major address on foreign policy and the economy, Edwards said: ``The problem is, of course, when you got the same old tired ideas, the same old false attacks, the same old tired rhetoric, there are no new ideas. There are no new plans.'' "

Is this not the pot calling the kettle black?? The democrat ticket is unchanged since the late 60s - class warfare and freak fringe groups.

CIA: Saddam Bought Off Countries, People with Oil

Hey, the UN is really a great organization - really!! Now, why is this not getting the same coverage that saddam didn't have *stockpiles* of WMDs?? Note, not that he did not *have* WMD's, or *have* the technology to manufacture and distribute, but no *stockpiles*.
Not that it matters to me, he should have been killed long ago.

I'm starting to see a trend here. What's the deal? Do Democrats honestly believe that civil disobedience is the way to get their point across? And what is that point, exactly? You're not satisfied with the Democratic process? Are you fomenting a grassroots revolt?

Someone fill me in. I'd love to hear the rationale behind this.

Shots fired into Knox Bush/Cheney headquarters

This is like my previous post about the dirty hippie Democrat. Are Democrats really that angry, or are more angry people Democrats? I'm mad at Kerry/Edwards, but I defer to the electoral process.

Here's the kicker to the story: "In an unexpected twist, a bank directly across the street from the headquarters was robbed just as KPD officers were busy investigating at the scene of the shooting."

Would that make the unknown (presumably Democrat) assailant an accessory to the robbery?

Dirty Hippies

I had a very pleasant drive home from Austin yesterday - I'll bet Washington, D.C. doesn't have that many Kerry bumperstickers.

In any event, just blocks from home on I-35, I came up on a Jeep driven by a kid about 25-30 years old, with a Kerry/Edwards sticker and another that said, "Forgive us Iraq, We Know Not What We Do." I must've been shaking my head in bemusement as I passed, because I riled up the dirty hippie driving the dirty Jeep.

He caught up to me, pulled up beside me, and gave me a dirty look. I was in a good mood, so I ignored him, and moved on. He caught up again, so I did what every voting American should do on election day: give the Democrats the finger.
