Apology for Light Blogging

A week or more between posts is not acceptable and I will try to do better. Thank you

If Abbas will not Do anything, Re-Open the Settlement

Israle forcibly removed people from the Gaza settlement. One of Israel's former PMs resigned on protest. Looks like he was right. This past Sunday there was another suicide bombing. Palestinian President Abbas condemned the act, rhetoricaly. President Bush is at last telling Abbas it is time for him to stand up to the terrorists among his people. Anybody care to start a pool as to how long before Israel gets blamed for this too, or accused of undermining the "roadmap" if she retaliates? Let's face it, in the eyes of many, particularly the US news medis, Palestinian terrorists are the darlings. Even Senator Hillary Clinton can publicly embrace Yasser Arafat's now-widow (he was alive at the time) and not get called on it.
Israel is right to be paranoid, some will not be happy until every Israeli is pushed into the sea, and every non-Israeli Jew soon follows. Many do not want to admit that we are witnessing a global holocost, but do you really think that the Islamo-facists will stop with the destruction of Israel?
More later.

Fred Phelps Strikes Again

Fred Phelps is often trotted by the left out as the poster boy for their caricature of an evangelical Christian. He may believe he is. Things like this say otherwise. Disrupting a soldier's funeral...and for what? So he can extend his Warhohlian fifteen minutes? Mr. Phelps, if you insist on misrepresenting Christ, at least do not claime to speak for all Christians. You are not even close.

Ever Wonder Where They come up with This Stuff?

Conspiracy theories are a dime a dozen (like the late, great "Classy" Freddy Blassie, "I'm lookin' for the guy who's supplyin' the dimes"). Of late they have become so off the wall so as to make one wonder if person who came up with it has more than two adjacent brain cells functioning. I think I have found the source.:
The George W. Bush Conspiracy Generator. That's right you too can get in on the fun of finding new things to blame on the pres.

NARAL Ad Shown to be False

NARAL has released an attack ad against Supreme Court nominee John Roberts that claims (by ham-fisted implication) that he wrote a brief supporting abortion clinic bombers. According to the good folks at FactCheck.org the ad is false and misleading. FactCheck goes into what the brief actually said and pointed out that the ad uses an incident that occured SEVEN YEARS after the brief was files in a totally different matter.

In words and images, the ad conveys the idea that Roberts took a legal position excusing bombing of abortion clinics, which is false. To the contrary, during the Reagan administration when he was Associate Counsel to the President, Roberts drafted a memo saying abortion-clinic bombers "should be prosecuted to the full extent of the law." In the 1986 memo, Roberts called abortion bombers "criminals" and "misguided individuals," indicating that they would get no special treatment regarding requests for presidential pardons. Reagan in fact gave no pardons to abortion-clinic bombers.

The 1986 draft is on file at the Reagan library. The White House furnished a copy to FactCheck.org.

The ad does not even mention what the argument of the brief in question. According to FactCheck, "What Roberts argued was that a federal anti-discrimination law couldn't be used against abortion blockaders because they weren't discriminating against women – they were blockading men, too."

Let's face it, this ad is nothing but a guilt bu association piece, which is probably why CNN has accepted the ad for airing.

I Do not Want to give them Traffic, but...

The Dawn Patrol: Planned Parenthood Fantasizes About Blowing Up 'Anti-Choicers' tells of the homicidal "superhero" concocted by Pedophiles' Pal Planned Parenthood Goldengate. Then again it is also an example of your tax dollars at work. Dawn's title of the blog entry pretty much sums up the hypocricy of the piece which looks like it started out as a flip book done by a third grader (apologies to third graders out there, I know many of you are more talented than the hack who made this cartoon).
Brief synopsis: After drowning an abstinance-only teacher (who looks suspiciously like Snidely Whiplash) our "hero" wipes out "anti-choice" demonstrators by encasing them in exploding condoms. She flies to DC (taking a route that is suggestive of an IUD coil) where she lectures a senator about nobody being above the law (rather ammusing from an organization that protects statutory rapists seemingly as a matter of policy). After that she goes to Africa to show the progress of Margret Sanger's Negro Project over there. Of course she doesn't mention that part of PP's history given that the hero is Black.
Of course it ends with the usual hollow rhetoric about accepting people regardless of "race, creed...religion [isn't this redundant?]...". This is hollow given the homicidal treatment received by those with opposing views.

In Support of the Right to Vote (Fraudulently)

In a rather perverse episode of "Where Were You When..." I have to say I was actually in Atlanta getting ready to head home when Cynthia Tucker went off the deep end. In Easy to identify hypocrisy of Georgia Republicans' voter ID law
| ajc.com
, Ms. Tucker revives the old, "what about non-drivers" objection to requiring voters supply a photo ID at the time they go to exercise the franchise. In this piece, Tucker tells us of the plight of 93-year old Mamie Fields, a nursing home resident who only had to show her social security card in the last election.

But Gov. Sonny Perdue and the GOP-dominated Legislature have gotten tough on people like Fields, who is 93, so she won't be able to get away with that again. Claiming they were on the lookout for fraudulent voters, GOP legislators pushed through a stringent voter ID law that would force Georgians to show a state-sponsored photo ID. But Mamie Fields doesn't have one. She hasn't driven in many years, she said.

Is that the only objection? That is rather easily fixed. You see many states, INCLUDING GEORGIA issue a photo ID to non drivers. If Ms. Tucker had done even a minor ammount of homework she would have known that. That would, of course, have made her column less melodramatic, but she would at least not looked like she was supporting the right to vote fraudulently. Let's face it, anybody who would say say something like, "I wish I could vote lots of times. I want to throw all those rascals in Washington out" on the record needs to be viewed. Ms. tucker apparently neglected to find out that "vote early and vote often" does not refer to the same election...at least not legally.

Yeah, I'm know I'm Late to this Party, but...

Dead[beat] Air America can't seem to Catch a Break (Couldn't Happen to a Nicer Bunch) was the original title to this, but that won't fit in the trackback ping box.
Despite the silence of the New York Times, the Air America scandal continues to grow legs. At one time I would have said that it was to their credit that they were still on the air despite their abysmal ratings. It seems it was to someone else's involuntary credit that they are still on the air. Namely a now struggling Boys and Girls Club in the Bronx.
Michelle Malkin: AIR DEADBEAT: THE SAGA CONTINUES continues Michelle's coverage of the scandal. It would probably be fun to listen to the self-proclaimed knights-in-shining-armor-fighting-against-the-evils-of-capitalist-America try to explain their way out of it, but from all reports they seem to have a "scandal? What scandal?" attitude about it all. I guess that makes Al Franken one of those lying liars who tell lies he so abhors. BoreAmerica has even created a news ticker to cover the scandal.
As Cigar Dave would say, "Life is good."
