Huckabee and the world

I finally got around to reading presidential hopeful Mike Huckabee's essay in Foreign Affairs a couple days back, and I must confess that there's enough miss in his hit-and-miss outline that he sounds more like Barack Obama than Ronald Reagan. In a New York Times profile last week, Huckabee said that his thinking on foreign […]

The 47th Samurai

Those of you who saw this past summer's Mark Wahlberg movie "Shooter" are familiar with Bob Lee Swagger, the invention of Washington Post movie critic Stephen Hunter. "Shooter," in book form, is entitled "Point of Impact" and it's different enough from the movie that it's worth a read. Hunter's latest book, "The 47th Samurai" is […]

Cow manure

Time managing editor Adi Ignatius on that magazine's selection of Vladimir Putin as "Person of the Year": "It's not an honor ... we're not saying that he's a good person, we're not saying he's a bad person. He is the person who has most affected the news in 2007 and going forward." Nos. 2-5 were: […]

Hillary's presents

Sen. Hillary Clinton has her "holiday" advertisement out -- and it should come as no surprise that she's using your money to buy her "gifts." It would take about an extra 15 seconds to make this into a pretty effective general election attack ad. Just add freeze frame, a big dollar sign and the cash […]

Please tell me this a prank

The British "justice" system can't seriously have gone this awry. A convicted criminal has moved in with a married couple against their wishes after giving their address in court as his home. Shane Sims, 19, has spent the last few days living with Brenda and Robert Cole after he was sentenced to a week's curfew […]

Merry Christmas

I got my new car payment today after a lot of research and errand running, which should explain the recent blogging slowdown. For those who are interested, I got a used 2006 Hyundai Sonata GLS V6. That last bit may or may not turn out to be the thing I regret. Gas mileage is a […]

Bush Sr. to Clinton: I'm just not that into you

Unsurprisingly, former President George H.W. Bush has put the kibosh on former President Bill Clinton's suggestion that the two would globetrot during a Hillary Clinton presidency repairing the hurt feelings caused by Bush 43. In a statement sent to CNN Tuesday afternoon, former President Bush’s chief of staff Jean Becker said that he “wholeheartedly supports […]

Money saves lives

A number of the world's most eminent scientists -- who don't buy into the "consensus" human-induced alarmism that Al Gore touts with regard to climate change -- have written a letter that everyone should read. In short, the scientists say that the best way to save lives due to climate change isn't to reduce greenhouse […]

Us? Politics?

I nearly burst out laughing when I read this Friday afternoon. Attorney General Michael Mukasey on Friday rejected lawmakers' demands for information as the Justice Department investigates the destruction of tapes showing CIA interrogations of two al Qaeda suspects. In letters to the House and Senate Judiciary committees, Mukasey also said he would not appoint […]

Huckabee's bigger problem

There's a Web ad out now on Gov. Mike Huckabee's pressured parole of rapist/murderer Wayne Dumond. The ad features the mother of the girl Dumond raped and murdered after Huckabee helped set him free. I honestly don't see how Huckabee can survive this, but I've been wrong before.

I'll take a look at dude's new book, but this tweet isn't promising. Watts is a self-aggrandizing extremist whose easily debunked smears have done a lot of damage to her own cause. Also, within pro-gun-control circles everyone knows she's toxic, & Busse surely knows this.

Ryan Busse@ryandbusse

It’s time for reasonable gun owners to cry bullshit on those who demonize good people like @shannonrwatts who are just fighting to make the world better. As Shannon says…it’s also time to buy this book.
