Roadmap to nowhere

After Mahmoud Abbas' "resignation" last week revealed him to be little more than Yasser Arafat's public face, news out today is Arafat has "formally nominated" Ahmed Qorei to replace Abbas. It's befuddling why this latest development occupies such a prominent place on many Internet news pages -- it's not news, it's theatre. A few weeks […]

There is no "cycle of violence"

At least, that's what a letter writer to the San Diego Union-Tribune would have you believe. Following the Aqaba summit, 79 percent of the Palestinians supported Palestinian Prime Minister Mahmoud Abbas and wanted to give peace a chance, while the Israelis under the leadership of Prime Minister Ariel Sharon did not waste time in undermining […]

More on Miguel Estrada

There are two good articles today on the Democrats' borking of appellate court nominee Miguel Estrada. The first, by Robert Alt makes the case that Democrats filibustered Miguel Estrada because he is a Hispanic who left the reservation. That is, you're not allowed to be a member of a minority group and a conservative. Democrats […]

Padres stats

I'm glancing at the Padres game every once in awhile and they have this graphic comparing second baseman Mark Loretta's batting average to that of other Padres in the past. What's funny every time they do something like this is the headline and the footnote on the graphic. The headline reads something to the effect […]

You can buy it on Ebay

Actually you can buy anything on Ebay. A good friend sent me this link. Yep, somebody's selling their sample ballot. My friend is lucky, he's got the Governator listed first on his ballot. I"m not so lucky, Ah-nold's listed dead last on mine.

You know this ticks-off readers

From today's New York Times Corrections page: The crossword puzzle yesterday provided an erroneous clue for 60 Down, seeking the answer "ELAL." " `Raid on Entebbe' airline" was incorrect because the hijacked passengers who were rescued at Entebbe in 1976 had flown on Air France, not El Al. One thing you learn really quick in […]

Estrada withdraws

Filibustered, Harvard-educated, Honduran-born appeals court nominee Miguel Estrada has withdrawn his name from consideration by the Senate. Somebody ought to stick their foot up New York Sen. Chuck Schumer's ***. But Sen. Charles E. Schumer (D-N.Y.), a Judiciary Committee member, said Estrada's decision to withdraw his nomination could have been avoided if the administration had […]

Talk radio tidbit

Driving in early to work this morning I got the rare opportunity (I'm usually asleep at that hour) to listen to the local talk radio show. I actually got to listen to a lot of the show, because traffic was horrendous (it took me nearly a half-hour just to get onto the freeway). A caller […]

Amazing farewell for #DeltaIVHeavy st #VANDENBERG and great photos by @lwood83 @RC_FirePhoto and Matt Udkow https://www.noozhawk.com/article/vandenberg_sfb_bids_farewell_to_delta_iv_heavy_rocket

I tweeted a few days ago about what appeared to me to be a largely baseless charge of plagiarism made by @PhilWMagness. The evidence of plagiarism is more extensive than I was led to believe by the article I’d read about it. I’m deleting the tweets and I apologize to Mr. Magness.

I remember the 2009 Green Revolution in Iran where people were protesting for basic human rights. The Obama administration, including you as Secretary of State, never did anything to help them. And Biden won't do anything now, because he'd rather have a terrible nuke deal. https://twitter.com/HillaryClinton/status/1573069778021150722

Hillary Clinton @HillaryClinton

Iranians are protesting for their basic human rights in the aftermath of the horrific death of Mahsa Zhina Amini. Iranians deserve to live free from violence and intimidation. The world is watching.
