The tolerant left

There's a simple reason that I'm never going to wear my politics on my car in the form of ribbons, bumper stickers or anything else -- expressing views contrary to liberal orthodoxy is viewed by far too many on the left as a license to vandalize. Case in point: Marine Sgt. Mike McNulty's car was […]

Common sense from the British media

The Sunday Telegraph of London wasn't blinded by the politics of its newsroom, like Time magazine was, and has wisely named Gen. David Petraeus as its "Man of the Year." He has been the man behind the US troop surge over the past 10 months, the last-ditch effort to end Iraq's escalating civil war by […]

Today's media coverup

A "pro-life" activist attacked an elderly pro-choice activist outside a crisis pregnancy center last week leaving the abortion rights supporter in serious condition. The pro-choicer suffered compression fractures in four vertebre, broke his right shoulder bone and two ribs. Police were called to the scene -- and let the assailant go free. When contacted for […]

What isn't needed

In the wake of the assassination of former Pakistani Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto, the one thing that isn't needed in that country is more chaos. As distasteful as the rule of Pervez Musharraf is to democracy, it would be far worse for that nuclear-armed nation to plunge into a maelstrom that could end with radical […]

Religion and public life

I'll probably be writing about the place of religion in public life for the rest of mine. While I'm generally opposed to the efforts of the radical left to scrub the public square of all religious speech -- and even more opposed efforts that seek to single out Christianity for special cleansing -- there is […]

Kangaroo courts

Columnist/author Mark Steyn has a post up on his legal troubles with Canada's thought-crimes court, more commonly known as the Human Rights Commission. The notion that a Norwegian imam can make a statement in Norway but if a Canadian magazine quotes that statement in Canada it's a "hate crime" should be deeply shaming to all […]

Bowden on waterboarding

Author/reporter Mark Bowden of "Black Hawk Down" fame had a piece in Sunday's Philadelphia Inquirer "In defense of waterboarding," that is well worth a read. No one should be prosecuted for waterboarding Abu Zubaydah. Several investigations are under way to find out who ordered the destruction of CIA interrogation videotapes, apparently an effort to cover […]

No Republicans in Iowa

You've just got to shake your head at this sort of "reporting" by the Associated Press' Beth Fouhy on the Iowa caucuses. Hattie Irving, an 81-year old Iowan, has never participated in her state's presidential caucuses, but she plans to this time - to support Hillary Rodham Clinton. "I was very impressed with her as […]

Your typical politician

A big part of GOP presidential hopeful Mike Huckabee's campaign has been the idea that he's not just another politician. He's got a non-political background as a Baptist minister, and he's got a sense of humor and a penchant for straight talk. Unlike most politicians, he's also got what appears to be a rather thin […]

Race politics

The Congressional Black Caucus today petitioned Gov. Kathleen Blanco of Louisiana to commute the sentence of an African-American thug because he beat up a white kid. If you've relied on television and mainstream media reports to inform your knowledge of the so-called Jena 6, then you might suspect me of coloring (no pun intended) my […]
