The Biggest Liar of them All

David Horowitz has a nice, concise wrap up of the DNC’s week of putting on a false front.

Now we can understand why Democrats spent the last year attacking the President as someone who lied to take America into an unnecessary war and destroy brave young American lives for his corporate friends in Texas. They did it to disarm and anesthetize us, to deconstruct the very idea of what truth is or what a fact is or what is is — and prepare us for the most shameless charade in political memory, the phoniest convention for the phoniest party ever to mount an American electoral stage.

In Boston the Democrats — the party of Al Sharpton, Jimmy Carter, Teddy Kennedy and Michael Moore — presented themselves as the party of patriotism and military glory and American military strength, and John Kerry as a man whose life has been one long preparation to be commander-in-chief. “I am John Kerry,” he saluted his audience to begin his convention speech, “reporting for duty.” Pardon me while I hurl. This is a man who came back from Vietnam to stab not only his country but his comrades-in-arms in the back. This is a man who to this very day has an honored place in the Communist enemy’s “War Crimes Museum” — that’s American war crimes. This is a party and a wannabe commander in chief that has clamored and voted to oppose America’s wars in Vietnam, the Persian Gulf and in Iraq. This is a party and a commander in chief that lent comfort and aid to Communist dictators in Central America during the last years of the Cold War and nearly brought the Reagan presidency down for attempting to oppose the Communist tide.

This is a man and a party that voted to cut America’s military and its intelligence services year after year, a man and a party who refused to institute the security measures that would have prevented 9/11. And this is a man and a party that has sabotaged the war on terror since the day Baghdad was liberated, that has embraced the reprehensible traitor Michael Moore, and the antiwar left of the Dean campaign, that has spread monstrous lies about its commander in chief and and in doing so undermined the nation’s credibility and defenses. If another terrorist state were to become a threatening nuclear force (Iran comes immediately to mind) what American president can now face that enemy down with a credible military threat?

This is a party that from the beginning to the end of its convention pretended to be what it is not. And that is because it fears that American people already know what it is.

Where is Kerry’s World War II footage?

Given the fact that footage used in Lurch’s “Saving Private Lurch” movie was (allegedly) re-inacted and staged just for this moment, a friend has posed the question: where is the footage of his military service in World War II? I think it’s an excellent question!

Apparently there were some technical snafus last night at CNN.

For any of you wondering if I watched Lurch vomit forth his “I’m reporting for duty” claptrap last night, the answer is no. I watched an episode of Curb Your Enthusiasm on DVD instead. I would have happily stared at the wall for 55 minutes rather than listen to the left’s anti-war war hero bleat like a damn goat.

How has John Stossel not been fired by ABC yet?

ABC’s John Stossel, in an apparent homage to Nell Carter, says “Gimme a Break” to John-Boy Edwards and the rest of his contemptable trial lawyer ilk.

Vice presidential candidate Edwards made millions of dollars by doing good, say his supporters.

He was a personal injury lawyer who punished bad doctors and was awarded money for those who were victims of malpractice. He won’t give the total of how much money he made doing that, but in just the four years before he became a senator, he made over $26 million.

Lawyers were the biggest contributors to his presidential campaign, and now they’ve become the biggest givers to the Democratic Party — bigger than labor unions, corporations — bigger than anybody.

Trial lawyers comprise one of the most powerful professions in America, yet we rarely hear about the unintended consequences of what they do, and how the lawsuits they pursue impact our lives.

What Stossel assumes – and in my opinion, incorrectly – is that the consequences are unintended. It’s not so much that they’re unintended – they’re simply ignored. The only thing that shysters like Edwards (and Dickie Scruggs – who Stossel also notes made $1 BILLION off of suing big bad tobacco) care about is the truckloads of money that pull up at their doors after a successful case.

And how have lawyers like Edwards helped to take a dump on the health care system?

“That fear (litigation) is always there,” said obstetrics professor Dr. Edgar Mandeville. “Everybody walks in mortal fear of being sued.”

The Department of Health and Human Services found doctors order painful tests they consider unnecessary, for fear of being sued. And the majority of doctors say they recommended invasive procedures more often than they believed were medically necessary in an effort to prevent potential litigation.

I asked Scruggs if he thought that was accurate, and he said, “That’s probably true … but why do they do it? … They make more money, the more they do.”

But the doctors say it’s because of fear of the lawyers.

“Well I would say that too, if I were gouging someone and wanted to get away with it and blame it on somebody else,” said Scruggs.

Sounds like a typical bastard. Speaking of bastards, how about Edwards’ $26 million plus profit from suing doctors for cerebral palsy based on junk science?

Vice presidential candidate Edwards made millions suing doctors and hospitals on behalf of people whose children had been born with cerebral palsy.

Cerebral palsy is a central nervous system defect that makes it hard for people to control their muscles. At the time of Edwards’ cases, the defect was often said to be caused by a lack of oxygen to the baby’s brain during delivery. Edwards and other lawyers have argued that if the doctor involved had only done a Caesarean section, the child’s cerebral palsy could have been prevented.

He won a record verdict in a cerebral palsy case after he told the jury he was speaking for the injured infant, in the womb. He was very convincing and the jury awarded his clients over $6 million. Scruggs told me, “Wouldn’t you want your lawyer to be just as clever and just as effective?”

One thing doctors may have learned from these kinds of cases was to do more C-sections. The procedure is more common today for many reasons, including scheduling convenience, but doctors say fear of a cerebral palsy lawsuit has had a big impact.

Since 1970 C-sections have gone from 6 percent of all births to 26 percent. “And there has not been one small decrease in the cerebral palsy rate across the board,” said Mandeville.

As I posted earlier this month – the fact that Edwards pretended to channel an unborn baby while talking to the jury only reinforces the fact that he’s an absolute scumbag.

While Stossel doesn’t mention Edwards’ ability to speak to the unborn and relay their messages to juries, he does point out the ways in which these trial lawyers cost us all money – and impact our safety. I don’t know how he’s managed to keep a job at ABC.

You’ve got to be kidding.

Woman arrested, cuffed for eating candy.

You would really think that, in a crime-ridden shithole like Washington D.C. (and I’m not just talking about the politicians & lobbyists), the cops – even the transit cops – would have something better to do. Sounds like this rent-a-cop made it too far up the ladder for his own good.

“If she had stopped eating, it would have been the end of it and if she had just stopped for the issuance of a citation, she never would have been locked up,” Transit Police Chief Polly Hanson said Thursday.

Metrorail has been criticized in the past for heavy-handed enforcement of the eating ban. In 2000, a police officer handcuffed a 12-year-old girl for eating a french fry on a subway platform.

In 2002, one of their officers ticketed a wheelchair-bound cerebral palsy patient for cursing when he was unable to find a working elevator to leave a station. Unflattering publicity eventually led the police to void the ticket.

Willett was the second person arrested this year for eating or drinking, Hanson said. In addition, police have issued 58 tickets and given more than 300 written warnings.

You have to wonder what type of little Napoleon is in charge of the D.C. transit cops.

Death penalty? Not in California.

Dad pushes daughter off cliff in order to avoid paying child support.

If there were any true justice in this world, this guy would be either pushed off the same cliff to his death, or simply beaten to death by an angry mob. However, this is California, which means he will be defended, coddled and spooned with by their “justice” system and released back into the wild — having been rehabilitated by overpaid therapist lackwits.

No dildo for you!

A federal court has upheld an Alabama law banning the sale of sex toys in the state.

So, let me get this straight (again, pun intended). There is a “right to privacy” somewhere in the constitution that guarantees the right to abortion, but there is no such right to privacy if you want to go down to the adult bookstore and buy a “device that can be sexually stimulating?”

“If the people of Alabama in time decide that a prohibition on sex toys is misguided, or ineffective, or just plain silly, they can repeal the law and be finished with the matter,” the court said.

“On the other hand, if we today craft a new fundamental right by which to invalidate the law, we would be bound to give that right full force and effect in all future cases including, for example, those involving adult incest, prostitution, obscenity, and the like.”

Sherri Williams, an adult novelty retailer who filed the lawsuit with seven other women and two men, called the decision “depressing.”

“I’m just very disappointed that courts feel Alabamians don’t have the right to purchase adult toys. It’s just ludicrous,” said Williams, who lives in Florida and owns Pleasures stores in Huntsville and Decatur. “I intend to pursue this.”

The state law bans only the sale of sex toys, not their possession, the court said, and it doesn’t regulate other items including condoms or virility drugs. “The Alabama statute proscribes a relatively narrow bandwidth of activity,” U.S. Circuit Judge Stanley F. Birch Jr. wrote.

It’s just this type of idiocy that serves as a reminder that activist judges are a bad idea on the far left and the far right.

And where is Johnny Walker Red on this? Now he can’t go out and buy his weekly sexual device.

Excreeeeeme Makeover

You must visit the dim-o-cracks extreme makover site!

The site is dedicated to exposing the truth behind this week’s convention makeover and is filled with resources backing it all up with undeniable fact.

There is also an outstanding documentary (created and released by the RNC today in Boston) detailing Kerry’s road to the nomination – through the waffle house of course.

They leaked the photos!

Courtesy of Drudge… Kerry’s campaign manager Mary Beth Cahill claimed last night that pictures of Lurch’s visit to Cape Canaveral have been leaked in order to humiliate her hero/candidate.

This is beyond a stretch. She can feign indignation at this alleged “leak”, but everyone knows that the only reason these events take place is that they are meaningless photo-ops. Either that, or Lurch had stopped by to pay John Glenn some hush money.

Here is a bit of the exchange with Cahill & Brit Hume on FNC last night:

HUME: i must ask you about this photograph that suddenly turned up and fell in our laps last night nobody thought it was come. nobody had reported on the event which led to-t but there he was, the senator, on all fours in this very peculiar outfit, which i guess nasa had given him. how did that come about?

CAHILL: well, yesterday senator john glenn, obviously he was an astronaut in his previous life sexrvings senator carr took a tour of a bio facility at nasa. it was just the two of them, and the nasa staff, and all of a sudden this is a leaked photo.

HUME: it was leaked?

CAHILL: yes.

HUME: it was made by nasa, right?

CAHILL: yes, it was.

HUME: so the campaign had no idea there would be any photographs.

CAHILL: none.

HUME: when it was agreed he would put on his th costume.

CAHILL: there was no press there. there was — nothing. all of the sudden these photographs are out.

HUME: do you smell a dirty trick here? CAHILL: well, what do you think?

HUME: that isa is not a particularly political organization.

CAHILL: this was a pledge i want tour, obviously that, senator glenn and senator kerry were taking at cape canaveral, and all of the sudden these photographs appeared, and, you know, take it as you may. brit: well, is there any concern that this photo might prove as embarrassing as the fabled tank photo did in 1988?

CAHILL: you know, i think probably nasa will release the photograph of senator glenn, former astronaut, in the same –

HUME: in fact, there is a shot with a bunch of them in these outfits. he is not running, of course.

CAHILL: and the thing is this is a legitimate tour of a nasa facility, and this photograph appeared out of nowhere. we were surprised. we’re not surprised now.

HUME: you don’t have anyone in mind? do you think — CAHILL: i don’t.

I have to assume that Cahill is not a complete idiot (though I could be wrong), but is simply following orders to launch yet another falsehood to be dined on by the mainstream press as is standard operating procedure.

What they should have been worried about was this particular photo, showing Lurch getting another of his weekly ice-water enemas. They really need to put that tube in his ear if they want to clean out all the shit.

UPDATE: My friend Todd just informed me that Jay Leno used this photo for an enema joke last night. Damnit. I never watch the Tonight Show, so this is a disclaimer for anyone who may incorrectly assume that I would lift such an item from late night TV.

UPDATE UPDATE: NASA has confirmed that the Kerry campaign asked that the photos be taken AND that “processing be expedited so reporters could have them.”

Harry Hartoonian Speaks

Now Jackie Mason has gone and pissed off the tolerance Nazis at CAIR with a recent column and comments he made while hosting Jim Bohannon’s radio show. Mason spoke the truth about islam and that’s one thing CAIR can’t tolerate, so they are trying to intimidate him and Westwood One into an apology.

Some of the “offensive comments”:

Islam exists as it is taught in the Koran and lived by Muhammad. Muhammad, by the way, was hardly an example that one would wish to emulate. He had affairs with maids and slave girls and was also a pedophile –and before we get outraged e-mails on the latter point, here is chapter and verse: the girl’s name was Aisha, she was 9, he was 53. He was also involved in the slave trade, assassinations, and genocide. But, what the heck, nobody is perfect.

Let’s, as the sportscasters say, go to the record book, which, in this case is the Koran.

“Kill the disbelievers wherever we find them.” (2:191)

“Fight and slay the pagans [translation: that’s us], seize them, beleaguer them, and lie in wait for them in every stratagem.” (9:5)

Further apropos disbelievers, “…garments of fire shall be cut and there shall be poured over their heads boiling water whereby whatever is in their bowels and skin shall be dissolved and they will be punished with hooked iron rods.” (22:19).

The Koran also instructs Muslims to slay or crucify or cut the hands and the feet of the unbelievers (5:33), fight unbelievers until no other religion except Islam remains.

Given these basic teachings of Islam there is little reason to be surprised at the recent beheading of Americans taken hostage.

Muslims, married to a failed past, offer little hope for integration into modern society. Israel giving them land to which they are not entitled, or the United States not punishing them for criminal acts, will not assuage their rage. America must learn it cannot negotiate or reason with people who consider us infidels. It must recognize that the enemy is often among us and all the exposure available to them in Western civilization with its tolerances and respect for individual rights will not affect their seething anger at imagined wrongs, injustices, and illogical sense of entitlement.

Historically, use of strength, swift and certain punishment, and resolve of purpose are all that is left us to effectively deal with their primitive madness. And until we recognize this, there will be many more beheadings and September elevenths.

I guess we’re supposed to look the other way and pretend that President Junior is right when he drones on and on about islam being a “religion of peace” whilst drooling out the side of his mouth on his teleprompter.

CAIR has a long history of trying to use intimidation against anyone who dares disparage their beloved religion of peace. The WorldNet Daily article chronicles some of their tactics and targets:

Earlier this year, CAIR announced a campaign “to counter anti-Islamic hate on talk radio,” called Hate Hurts America.”
The campaign includes “step-by-step instructions on how to monitor local and syndicated radio programs, report anti-Muslim hate, file FCC complaints, and contact advertisers to register their concerns.”

As WorldNetDaily reported in December, CAIR demanded an apology from legendary radio broadcaster Paul Harvey for saying Islam is a religion that “encourages killing.”

A week later, a fill-in host referred to the comment, saying Harvey had received letters from several Muslim friends who “reminded all of us that Islam is a religion of peace, that terrorists do not represent Islam.”

WND reported in November radio counselor Dr. Laura Schlessinger refused to apologize as demanded by CAIR, which accused her of launching an “anti-Muslim tirade” on her program.

CAIR took offense to Schlessinger’s response to a mother who asked whether her 16-year-old daughter should take part in a Catholic high school class’s field trip to a local mosque. The visit was part of a “moral themes” class that aimed to help students learn how “Muslims are treated” in the United States.

Schlessinger told the mother she should tell the teacher “you are willing to go to the mosque only if it is one that has done its best to rout out terrorists in its midst.”

CAIR said Schlessinger “crossed the line from legitimate commentary on terrorism to Islamophobic bigotry.”

Schlessinger said, in response, “It’s absurd that anyone would even imagine that I was expressing disdain for everyone who is a Muslim or who is an Arab. That’s even stupid. If anybody has listened to me for any period of time, that’s absurd.”

You have to give the CAIR bastards credit, however. They’ve obviously been well-coached by ACLU types and have learned how to throw the term “hate speech” around until their victims cower in fear, lest they be thought of as “intolerant.”

What I recommend is that you head on over to JackieMason.Com and pick up some merchandise to support him! I was fortunate enough to get his autograph after a show in Nashville several years ago and it’s an even bigger prize today.

Saddam gardening, writing poetry

According to a story released by the Associated Press yesterday, Sodomy Insane is “writing poetry and gardening in prison.”

The UK’s Guardian newspaper reports that Sodomy appears “depressed and demoralized in solitary confinement, spending his time writing poetry, tending a garden and reading the Quran.”

It is tragic to witness the horrific conditions to which the left’s hero is subjected. Some more detail:

Saddam likes American muffins, cookies

Amin had little to report on Saddam’s poetry. “One of the poems is about George Bush, but I had no time to read it,” Amin said.

He reported that Saddam was being treated for high blood pressure and a chronic prostate infection, and was gaining weight after losing 11 pounds during a time when he resisted all fatty foods.

Saddam and other detainees get an MRE (meal ready to eat) breakfast, and hot food twice a day, Amin said. Dessert might include oranges, apples, pears or plums, but Saddam also likes American muffins and cookies, The Guardian quoted Amin as saying.

Saddam is not allowed newspapers, TV or radio, but has access to 145 books — mostly travel books and novels — donated by the Red Cross.

Amin said Saddam tends a garden during his daily three-hour exercise period.

“He is looking after a few bushes and shrubs and has even placed a circle of white stones around a small palm tree,” said Amin. “His apparent care for his surroundings is ironic when you think he was responsible for one of the biggest ecocides when he drained the southern marshes.”

Isn’t it sweet of the Red Crescent to donate books to Sodomy so that he doesn’t get too bored during his unjust imprisonment. Too bad they can’t arrange for his sons to come back from the dead to pay him a visit.


One of Six Meat Buffet’s Baghdad correspondents has just sent me a message – he was able to rummage through the trash bins behind the prison where Sodomy is being held and discovered one of Sodomy’s poems. I am reprinting it here without permission.

O gardenia

why, why am i imprisoned?
tell me, tell me, O beautiful gardenia
confined in this bleak garden of eden
only because i dare pray to allah!
O gardenia, i seek solace in you
so rare so alive with splendour, yet still fragile
fragile like the infants i poisoned
as their infidel parents wept closeby
i have done nothing!
O gardenia, so full of elegance
full… full like the mass graves
with the remains of a thousand families
still i am persecuted for what i know not!
with only the tender arms of the red crescent
to shield me from the desolate cold
with only hot meals and fresh fruits to sustain me
fruit filled with juice
juice… juice like the fluids that flowed
from the wood chippers in which i shoved my subjects
as their relations recoiled in horror
what have i done to deserve this!

I thought poetry was supposed to rhyme. Well, to each his own I guess.

Ann Coulter vs. USA Today

Well, there’s no doubt who’s side I come down on in this debate. Pun intended. USA Today hired Ann Coulter as a columnist/reporter at the Dim-o-crack convention this week in Beantown. For anyone who may have thought this was a bold, creative move by the national daily asswipe, don’t be fooled. Apparently, they didn’t know who Ann was when they hired her, because as soon as she filed her first column, she got the axe.

Perhaps they thought she was going to send a series of fluff pieces and human interest stories (or maybe even one of those cool infographics that goes in the bottom corner of the rag).

The controversial column is here at World Net Daily. Here’s a sneak peak:

With any luck, Gore will uncork his speech comparing Republicans to Nazis. Just a few weeks ago, Gore gave a speech accusing the Bush administration of deploying “digital Brown Shirts” to intimidate journalists and pressure the media into writing good things about Bush – in case you were wondering where all those glowing articles about Bush were coming from.

The last former government official to slake his thirst so deeply with the Kool-Aid and become a far-left peacenik was Ramsey Clarke and it took him a few years to really blossom. Clinton must have done some number on Gore. Then again, with his yen for earth tones in a man’s wardrobe, maybe Gore’s references to “Brown Shirts” was intended as a compliment.

Only one major newspaper – the Boston Herald – reported Gore’s “Brown Shirt” comment, though a Bush campaign spokesman’s statement quoting the “Brown Shirt” line made it into the very last sentence of a Los Angeles Times article. The New York Times responded with an article criticizing “both” Republicans and Democrats for using Nazi imagery. Democrats call Republicans Nazis, the Republicans quote the Democrats calling Republicans Nazis and “both” are using Nazi imagery. (It’s a cycle of violence!)

Now go read it. You know you want to.

A new badge of dishonor.

I wouldn’t have believed this if I hadn’t seen it with my own eyes.

Planned Parenthood has unveiled a new t-shirt, which proudly boasts “I had an abortion.”

According to Planned Parenthood, “These soft and comfortable fitted tees assert a powerful message in support of women’s rights.”

How fucking depraved are these people? The shirt also unintentionally points out that, if the baby was female, the proud wearer actually violated the rights of a future woman by slicing her up and sucking her out with a vacuum cleaner. Then again, it’s about choice – the choice not to be inconvenienced.

However, as I mentioned in an earlier missive, odds are that’s also one fewer potential dum-o-crat vote. There’s always a silver lining, I suppose.

UPDATE:  Planned Parenthood has since taken the t-shirt down. I guess Drudge swamped their servers. Either that, or they got cold feet from the political ramifications of using such poor judgment.

In the meantime, enjoy one of these fine products from their store:

Is abstinence right for you?! (from their “For Teens” section)

“Stop the war on choice!” t-shirts. (No hyperbole there…)

UPDATE TO THE UPDATE:  Well now they’ve put the t-shirt back up for sale. I wish they’d make up their damn mind.

I often dream of trains.

Here’s today’s Six Meat Buffet safety lesson. The first part is pretty simple, but pay close attention anyway.

Trains are big. They run on devices called train tracks. If you are on or close to train tracks when a train is passing, you may encounter substantial discomfort. If you are in an automobile, you will still suffer substantial discomfort, as a train is, in most cases, larger than an automobile.

Leland Laird, of Appleton, Wisconsin, recently provided us with an object lesson in how not to follow this safety lesson.

Part of Leland’s daily routine (since his first failure to follow train safety rules in 1989 resulted in his paralysis) has been stopping by the train tracks in his wheelchair to “flip off” passing trains.

Laird told officers he has used a wheelchair since 1989 when a car he was driving was struck by a train near Fremont.

But that’s not the reason he periodically “flips off” the trains, Lt. Pat Matuszewski said.

He told police he puts himself where train crews can see him – engineers and conductors consider him a regular – and makes obscene gestures because he is frustrated by their loud horns.

“He lives right near the intersection. That’s his way of addressing the loud horns blowing,” Matuszewski said.

Leland apparently enjoyed his first encounter with a train so much that he moved close to the train tracks. I suppose he didn’t consider the irritation that the train whistles might cause him.

“Lucky Leland,” as he is now known around Appleton, came away from his tangle with the train with only bruises and a traffic ticket (for violating traffic signals – I suppose his wheelchair qualified as some type of vehicle).

Authorities have encouraged Lucky to “find less dangerous ways to express himself.”

You Got Served!

That’s what Lance Armstrong said to the frogs as he crossed the finish line at the Tour de France today, to win a record sixth victory in the God-forsaken annual bicycling contest.

Ordinarily, euro-cycling is one of the last things I would ever pay attention to, but I had to tune in after Lance Armstrong was cursed at and spat upon last week as he was once again asserting his dominance over their silly little race.  What makes the story appealing to me is that it infuriates the frogs to such a degree that they’re literally frothing at the mouth with seething hatred that a filthy American has made them look like chumps so many times.

That’s really how it should be, if you think about it.

Comments are enabled

Thanks to the good folks at Blogger, we now have comments.

This will be an experiment of sorts, however. If I start getting a bunch of spam posts, flamers (the message board kind, not the queers…) or other claptrap that doesn’t add to the debate or provide some creativity or entertainment value, I’ll probably pull the plug.

For now, folks will be able to post comments anonymously or via their Blogger ID. If you don’t have a Blogger login, go here. You don’t have to actually set up a blog to have a Blogger ID/login, so just an fyi. Happy weekend!

File Under “Duh”

Little John Edwards says that “world leaders want Bush to lose.”

Courtesy of Drudge:

Edwards Suggests World Leaders Want Bush To Lose
Thu Jul 22 2004 10:51:24 ET

Sen. John Edwards said on CNN’s LARRY KING LIVE last night:

“Just a few weeks ago…I was in Brussels at NATO meeting with a whole group of NATO ambassadors and hearing their perspective on this. I just believe that these countries around the world, whose cooperation and alliances we need, believe that in order for them to have a fresh start with America, we’re going to need a new president to do that. Now, they’re not going to want to say this very vocally, of course, but the reality is that in order for us to reestablish old relations and to establish new relationships, I believe we need a new president. …

“They didn’t say that directly. What they said was they’re very frustrated with the way this administration has dealt with them. They believe that in this case our trans-Atlantic relationships are important, should be important to America, are important to them. They want to be treated with some level of respect.

“They understand, because I made it very clear, at the end of the day, the president of the United States is going to do what’s in the best interest of the American people. But the vast majority of the time, our interests are aligned with the interests of our allies around the world.”

I’m a bit surprised that Little John would be stupid enough to come out and say it. Everyone already knows that a John/John administration would weaken the country and gut our sovereignty. Lurch and Little John will hand us over to the U.N. for protection – which will render us impotent and unable to defend ourselves without the approval of the freaking French. What an embarrassment.

Hamburgler and WMDs

I just can’t stay away.

Clinton’s National Security Advisor Sandy “Hamburgler” Berger allegedly swiped highly classified terror documents from the National Archives to keep them out of the hands of the 9/11 Commission.

He did so by stuffing notes and other documents into his “jacket, pants and socks.” Not that the Clintonistas could possibly have anything to hide about how they gutted our national defenses for 8 years.

In fact, in a telling admission, President Clifford says that “we’re all laughing about it…”. More:

“We were all laughing about it on the way over here,” the former president said of the investigation into Samuel “Sandy” Berger on classified terrorism documents missing from the National Archives. “People who don’t know him might find it hard to believe. But … all of us who’ve been in his office have always found him buried beneath papers.”

This is how seriously the Clintonistas took our national defense.

In other news, more WMD’s have turned up in Iraq.

This time, it’s nuclear weapons buried and encased in concrete.

Don’t think that this will stop the leftist’s cries of “Bush Lied!” The left generally ignores the facts anyway – if it doesn’t bolster their illogical positions, it isn’t news.

When Abortion is about saving the “lifestyle” of the Mother

Michelle Malkin (I can’t stay away from her) provides some commentary on a New York Times editorial by Manhattan cosmopolitan hipster Amy Richards.

Apparently Amy had gotten pregnant (in fine feminist tradition – by her boyfriend), but was alarmed to find out that she had triplets. Fearing that this would interrupt her big-city lifestyle, she “selected” to get rid of two of them.  Her New York Times editorial is a delightful exercise in murderous lunacy. To wit:

My immediate response was, I cannot have triplets. I was not married; I lived in a five-story walk-up in the East Village; I worked freelance; and I would have to go on bed rest in March. I lecture at colleges, and my biggest months are March and April. I would have to give up my main income for the rest of the year. There was a part of me that was sure I could work around that. But it was a matter of, Do I want to?

I looked at Peter and asked the doctor: “Is it possible to get rid of one of them? Or two of them?” The obstetrician wasn’t an expert in selective reduction, but she knew that with a shot of potassium chloride you could eliminate one or more.

Having felt physically fine up to this point, I got on the subway afterward, and all of a sudden, I felt ill. I didn’t want to eat anything. What I was going through seemed like a very unnatural experience.

On the subway, Peter asked, “Shouldn’t we consider having triplets?” And I had this adverse reaction: “This is why they say it’s the woman’s choice, because you think I could just carry triplets. That’s easy for you to say, but I’d have to give up my life.” Not only would I have to be on bed rest at 20 weeks, I wouldn’t be able to fly after 15. I was already at eight weeks. When I found out about the triplets, I felt like: It’s not the back of a pickup at 16, but now I’m going to have to move to Staten Island. I’ll never leave my house because I’ll have to care for these children. I’ll have to start shopping only at Costco and buying big jars of mayonnaise. Even in my moments of thinking about having three, I don’t think that deep down I was ever considering it.

Interestingly, Amy’s editorial is framed as some type of “advice” column. I think the best course of action in this case would have been to get rid of one of the parties involved: save the three triplets and abort the mother.
