Last week, Rowan Williams, the idiot who presides over the Anglican church, made comments on the radio that his country should adopt Islamic law. Today’s Washington Post reports that Williams sticks by his sentiments in favor of the abolition of freedom and Christianity, but like so many spineless weasels in today’s public eye, Williams says he’d made a “misleading choice of words.” A man stupid enough to emit such utterances could not possibly benefit from my
The New York Times on Tuesday will carry story describing the Hillary Clinton campaign as a death-watch (h/t Drudge). It’s worth noting that on January 7, I wrote the Kerry campaign obituary prematurely. Still, the problems Hillary faces are of the sort that spells doom to candidates, either in their nomination quest or, later, in the general election. Shuffling top staff, borrowing money from the candidate, asking staff to work without pay are all symptoms
Imagine the affect on Allied troop morale, planning, and espionage had US troops found Hitler’s diary during the Normandy invasion. Something close, in the strategic sense, happened recently in Iraq. US fighters seized the diary of an al Qaeda in Iraq leader. The journal provides our side with names of terrorists, descriptions of their tactics, evidence of their atrocities, and catalogs of their weapons. Just as important, though, the book proves that we are winning
Eight years from now, the next Republican President will be running for re-election. He’ll air a TV spot like this one, reminding us of how far we’ve come in the previous four years.
I just sent a copy of “Hard Corps: From Gangster to Marine Hero” to Berkeley, California, Mayor Tom Bates. After all the anger directed at Berkeley after its city council voted to declare our great Marines persona non grata, I figured, “Maybe these people are just ignorant.” So I’m teaching the mayor to read, and what. If you’d like to educate other members of the council, find their names and addresses here. Also, Black Five
Last Saturday I had the pleasure of attending an aunt and uncle’s 50th wedding anniversary. A foot of snow reflected brilliant white sunlight on a sixty-degree day that seemed more like Colorado than Missouri. But our location was obvious by the unmistakable eagles-in-As adorning every fixture at the Anheuser-Busch Center in southwest St. Louis County. I cherish every Hennessy family get-together, but this one was special. There was no funeral parlor to visit, no Rosary
The candidates addressing supporters. BOOOOOring! Well, Reagan in 1980 was pretty cool. Since then, I don’t even want to hear MY candidate’s speech, much less the others. I mixed a Scotch and air and Obama’s still talking.
If John McCain (or Huckster) is the Republican nominee, why would anyone, other than GOP loyalists, vote Republican? To paraphrase Harry Truman, if McCain (or Huckster) is the nominee, there won’t be a dime’s difference between the two parties. Given that, why not vote for the real deal in Hillary or Obama? McCain is an impostor. (Related: Michelle Malkin asks if the GOP is lost.) Ronald Reagan won because he was sooooooo different from the
Not entirely my fault. I planned to vote on my way home from work. I have a client-facing job, and I have to respond to production issues. Tonight’s issue lasted until 6:10. Then, either local flooding or a bad accident had a major road to my house closed. It took over 45 minutes to get through the detour. By that time, it was 7:00 p.m., and my polling place in Ellisville, Missouri, was closed. I
