Some Random Musings
I knew Rudy reminded me of someone.
Maybe some conservatives are waking up. Rudy's lead in national polls is leading some on the "Right" to consider the possibility of jumping ship.
Pat Buchanan says that things look bad for Republicans but that the Dems are frankly no picnic:
"All the Democratic candidates but Hillary favored a federal law banning smoking in public places. Would that mean U.S. attorneys prosecuting bartenders for letting patrons puff away. Are Democrats going to take the nanny state national? Do they think Middle America is Mike Bloomberg's Manhattan?
All the Democratic candidates except Dennis Kucinich favored the Federal requirement that states outlaw drinking by 18-year-olds, which means high school kids who join the Marines can't have a night of beer with their buddies before heading to Anbar.
All the Democratic front-runners favored second-graders being read stories in school about a homosexual marriage between a pair of princes. This would result in the absurdity of 6-year-olds, forbidden by the U.S. Supreme Court from learning about God, Adam and Eve in school, being introduced to sexual unions between Adam and Steve. America is just not that far down that road."
A sad article about what life for Christians in Iraq is like in the aftermath of their "liberation."
Andrew Sullivan with some strong words: "We have war criminals in the White House. What are we going to do about it?"
The actions of Blackwater "security" details are inevitable in the sort of conflict we entered in Iraq.
I don't hear much these days about Afghanistan, but violence is up 30%. Is there any way to actually do anything productive in Afghanistan without more support in Islamabad?
Homosexuality is a conservative value--as long as they support the war!
