CowardlyCuriousGeorge FlyingGlobalistBushMonkey spilled the beans and then his spokesthing, Tony Snow, had to bow and scrape to the knuckle-dragging representatives of the AmericaLast media.
From Editor & Publisher:
...Snow was asked about the president providing a "body count" in Iraq, something that has been pretty much avoided, in wake of criticism of inflated numbers in Vietnam. The transcript follows.
Q: The President yesterday said that about 5,900 enemy forces have either been killed or captured in about the last two and a half months. Can you elaborate on that? I mean, he just made one broad statement about that. What other information do you have to back that up, in terms of --
MR. SNOW: Well, those are -- that's the information that's been produced by our people in the field.
Q: Why did he decide to give enemy body counts? That's something that they've generally tried to stay away from.
MR. SNOW: Well, that's a good question. I won't try to -- rather than trying to tell you why the President said what he said -- because I can't give you the exact -- I can't put him on the couch right now -- what I can do is at least offer one possible reason why that's an important data point for Americans, which is there's a lot of concern about U.S. casualties and deaths, as there should be -- 103 deaths in October alone. And there is quite often the impression -- and I've talked about it up here, that our people aren't doing anything, they're just targets. And I think there's a certain amount of unease in the American public because they hear about deaths but they don't hear about what's going on.
I was speaking last night with a service member just recently back; he was at our party. And he's frustrated because a lot of the activities they do never get reported. Well, one of the things that never seems to be counterposed to the death counts is what our servicemen and women are doing. And one of the things they're doing is they're fighting the bad guys. And as General Chirelli said recently, the bad guys haven't won a single battle. For obvious reasons, going back to Vietnam era, people are loathe to do body counts. (Emphasis mine.) But it probably is worth at least giving a general impression of relative battlefield success of what's going on, which is a great many members of al Qaeda in Anbar and also people who are committing acts of violence in Baghdad and elsewhere are dying or being captured as a result of these military activities.
Q: Tony, is this something that the White House would like the America public to judge? We killed this many bad guys, versus how many of us are killed? Is that something you want as a metric from now on?
MR. SNOW: I don't know. But I think -- I think the most -- I think it is important that Americans learn as much as possible about what's going on in Iraq, and that's not merely militarily, to get a sense of where the violence is located, how widespread it is, what's going on in civil society, is there hope in certain provinces, what is the full picture in Iraq. And I'm afraid that that is something that people have not fully received. And so we will be talking about the fuller picture, good news and bad news....

The first order of business for the Mena Mafia? Attack Senator Token's hideously malformed gargantuan ears in order to save Senatrix Hitlery Schicklgruber's (N-NY) faltering campaign to become Empress of Earth.
New York Post: BUBBA'S BUDS CHEW OVER 2008 WITH HILL
With Obama-mania soaring to new heights, Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton rushed yesterday to powwow with her husband's brain trust.
Heehee! Brain dust is more like it.
Sen. Clinton hosted a dinner at her swank Embassy Row home last night with Bubba's buddies James Carville, Paul Begala, Joel Johnson and Joe Lockhart.
What happened to the Chappaqua love nest? Hmmm...The phrase "marriage of convenience" comes to mind.
Bill Clinton's former gurus serve as an informal sounding board and think tank for the former first lady, separate from her army of campaign staffers and consultants.
Ha! You can't fool me. Goober II's gurus are now, and always have been, Larry "Ironside" Flynt and Huge "Tiny" Hefner.
The confidential confab - coming as Sen. Clinton plots her official candidacy for the White House - is a repeat of 2000, when she hosted a similar dinner shortly before announcing her Senate bid.
It is not confidential when you spew press releases about it...
One Clinton insider said she'd "seek the advice and counsel of some of the very smartest people in politics" over table talk.
Karl Rove, call your office.
In the run-up to her re-election, the bombastic Carville headlined a Virginia fund-raiser for the senator, while Begala penned an appeal letter to her supporters.
Sen. Clinton, who hosted Democratic fat cats from Iowa and New Hampshire earlier this week, is picking up her pace as rising presidential rival Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.) soaks up the national spotlight, raising concerns for Team Hillary.
Obama, who wooed New Hampshire Democrats last Sunday, has been lauded for his tongue-in-cheek introduction of Monday Night Football - when he announced to "all of America that I am ready . . . for the [Chicago] Bears to go all the way, baby!"
Obama's monologue has been viewed more than 100,000 times on YouTube.
That means he is making inroads with the teenaged nerds.
The ABC/ESPN network approached him to do the skit - underscoring his in-demand status.
Obama says he'll announce his presidential intentions soon in the coming weeks, while Clinton said she'll wait until after Jan. 1 to make a formal declaration.
To outflank Obama, Clinton this week hired one of the party's best operatives at winning over evangelical voters, The Hill newspaper reported.
Burns Strider, who currently runs House Democrats' religious outreach program and leads the Faith Working Group, is being brought on board to woo so-called "values voters."
"Burns Strider"? That sounds like a porn star's nom de you-know-what.

The West Australian: 'Inappropriate' Miss USA's Trump card
Organisers of the Miss Universe pageant have confirmed that they are "evaluating" the "behavioural and personal issues" of Miss America, 20-year-old Tara Conner.
Conner, who was crowned in April, has been the subject of negative media reports following a spate of incidents that are being euphemistically referred to as "inappropriate behaviour".
The former Miss Kentucky is believed to have a drinking problem, despite being below the legal drinking age in the US.
Following intense speculation on the celebrity website TMZ.com predicting her imminent demise, the Miss Universe and Miss USA organisation, which is owned by Donald Trump, was forced to release a statement denying the beauty queen had been dethroned.
"Miss USA Tara Conner has not been dethroned. The Miss Universe Organization and Mr Donald J Trump will be evaluating her behavioural and personal issues to see what we can do to work with her, and what we will do about her reign going forward. Mr Trump will make a determination and announcement within the coming week," the statement read.

Boston Globe: Hmong tribesmen surrender in Laos
Bangkok - A lingering legacy of the Vietnam War emerged from the jungles of Laos yesterday, as hundreds of members of the Hmong hill tribe minority surrendered to the communist government after decades on the run.
The group is the latest of several ragtag bands of surrendering Hmong -- remnants of a guerrilla army that served a pro-American government before it fell to the communists in 1975.
The surrendering group's chieftain, Moua Tua Ter, accompanied the 405 people -- mostly children -- to Ban Ha village in Phoukout district before returning to the jungle with a few of his guerrillas, US-based Fact Finding Commission said in an e-mail.
The group appeared to be "very hungry and tired," it said. The villagers served them rice and pork.
The newcomers became nervous and the mood turned sour when 50 Lao government soldiers who showed up a few hours after the surrender separated the Hmong from the villagers. The Hmong were loaded onto five military trucks to be taken to an army camp in the district capital.
Although the Hmong served loyally in what was called the CIA's "Secret War" in Laos -- Washington did not officially acknowledge its military presence there at the time -- they were all but abandoned after their communist enemies, the North Vietnamese-backed Pathet Lao, came to power.
More than 300,000 Laotian refugees, mostly Hmong, fled after the takeover, with many resettling in the United States.
Thousands stayed behind, some adjusting to the new regime and others staying in the jungle, where they faced sweeps by government soldiers.
Thousands more Hmong are believed still in the jungle.
Details of the surrender were provided by the Fact Finding Commission, which lobbies on behalf of the Hmong and is in touch with them through satellite telephones. Though news of the surrender could not immediately be independently verified, information provided in the past by the commission has proved to be accurate.

Big overhead smash in Wii Sports Tennis
December 12, 2006 on 3:55 pm In Glass Damage 9 Comments
Linsey Fryatt is based in London and writes for stuff.tv - the website of the magazine of the gadget. Not many UK folks have a Wii, what with all 50,000 selling out on day one (last Friday).
But I guess if you work for one of the leading game console review publications, you’ll have a few of these kicking around. And so it is that Linsey got in touch. In her own words:
“The Wii has me peeved. Not because those wacky little games have seriously dented my social life. Not because my Mii has more fashion sense than the real me. Not even because Wii Sports has tricked me into some gentle exercise.
I’m peeved because the Wii-related damage to my home has now reached hundreds of pounds, thanks to the heady mixture of Polish vodka, Scottish bravado and a particularly strenuous game of Wii tennis (note to self – glass lampshades DO NOT make a good substitute for tennis balls…)”
The damage was actually deliverd by a “particularly strenuous smash by my so-called friend, Email”. Email? (Go figure, as our US readers might say). I guess he doesn’t get out much.
That’s not all for overhead smashes - see some painful consequences after the jump.

Roto-Reuters: Hamas says Abbas seeks war

AP: FBI: Cleric's illness may spark attack
The health of terrorist cleric Omar Abdel-Rahman, known as the Blind Sheik, is deteriorating — renewing fears that his death in prison could trigger an attack on the United States, officials said Thursday.
There is no credible indication that an attack on the U.S. is imminent, said several law enforcement officials who spoke on condition of anonymity because of the sensitive nature of the situation.
In a two-page bulletin, dated Dec. 8, the FBI reported to federal intelligence officials that Abdel-Rahman had been rushed from prison to a Missouri hospital two days earlier for a blood transfusion. There, doctors discovered a tumor on his liver, according to the bulletin, which was described to The Associated Press by a law enforcement official.
But U.S. Bureau of Prisons spokeswoman Tracy Billingsley said Abdel-Rahman's condition had stabilized, and he has since been moved back to prison.
"His condition has improved," Billingsley said.
Officials said the bulletin served merely as a reminder that Abdel-Rahman had called for retaliation by terror sympathizers if he died in prison. It cited a May 1998 news conference in which al-Qaida members distributed his last will and testament, in which Abdel-Rahman pleaded for followers to "extract the most violent revenge" should he die in U.S. custody.
WASHINGTON - Democratic Sen. Tim Johnson was recovering without complications from emergency brain surgery to repair bleeding in his brain.
Family and colleagues were encouraged by his progress Thursday, yet doctors said it was too early to say whether further surgery would be required.
Johnson suffered a brain hemorrhage Wednesday that was caused by a rare and sometimes fatal condition. His illness came just weeks before Democrats are to take control of the Senate by a one-seat margin.
Johnson was in critical condition at George Washington University Hospital but was described as recovering Thursday. The South Dakota lawmaker, 59, was on "an uncomplicated postoperative course," the U.S. Capitol physician said after visiting him Thursday afternoon.
"He has been appropriately responsive to both word and touch. No further surgical intervention has been required," said the physician, Adm. John Eisold.
Johnson was responding to the voice of his wife, Barbara, and following directions after the surgery, the senator's office said in a statement.

AP: There's no revolution in Belgium. Really.
Brussels - Suddenly and shockingly, Belgium came to an end. State television broke into regular programming late Wednesday with an urgent bulletin: The Dutch-speaking half of the country had declared independence and the king and queen had fled. Grainy pictures from the military airport showed dark silhouettes of a royal entourage boarding a plane.
Only after a half hour did the station flash the message: "This is fiction."
It was too late. Many Belgians had already fallen for the hoax.
Frantic viewers flooded the call center of the RTBF broadcaster that aired the stunt. Embassies called Belgian authorities to find out what was going on, while foreign journalists scrambled to get confirmation.
"Ambassadors who were worried asked what they had to tell their capitals," said Senate Chair Anne-Marie Lizin. "This fiction was seen as a reality and it created a catastrophic image of the country."
RTBF defended the program, saying it showed the importance of debate on the future of Belgium. But the network won few friends.
Even the Jean-Claude Juncker, the prime minister from neighboring Luxembourg, was angry and let it be know at the opening of the European Union summit. "This is not the kind of issue you play around with," he said.
The RTBF's phony newscast reported that the "Flemish parliament has unilaterally declared the independence of Flanders" and that King Albert and Queen Paola had left on the first air force plane available.
The broadcast showed jubilant demonstrators waving the yellow-and-black flag with the Flemish Lion outside the legislature. A small crowd of monarchists rallied outside the royal palace waving the Belgian flag.
Reporting that the royal family fled did not go down well at the palace, which said in a statement the hoax was in "bad taste."
"It is totally unacceptable," said Vice Premier Didier Reynders.
The linguistic demons pitting Dutch-speaking Flanders in the north against French-speaking Wallonia in the south have been mostly quiet for the past two decades, ever since far-reaching autonomy was granted in the 1980s.
Yet the economic disparity between wealthy Flanders and struggling Wallonia has recently intensified the political debate. The North is demanding more autonomy while the South clings to a unity that better spreads the economic spoils. The royal family is often portrayed as the glue that holds the nation together.
Independence is not an aim of any of the major parties in power, whatever their linguistic preference. It explains why the program was so widely condemned on Thursday.
"It is abhorrent. It defies belief. It is a caricature of Flanders," said Yves Leterme, the Minister-President of the Flemish region.
His counterpart from Wallonia, Elio di Rupo, was just as negative. "Never in my long political life have I seen such worry. Anguish came from around the world," he said.
About the only people who enjoyed the program were the separatist far-right Flemish Interest party. It wants to get rid of the king and thought it could see a flash of its future in an independent Flanders.
"I want to congratulate the RTBF for this daring show," said Flemish Interest leader Filip Dewinter.

Today is the Feast of St. Mary Di Rosa.
The pounding on the barricaded door of the military hospital sent every heart thudding in terror. In the middle of the war in Brescia (Italy) in 1848, the wounded, sick, and those who cared for them knew what that pounding meant. The shouts from beyond the door came from soldiers, not obeying any command but their inner desire to destroy and plunder. Who could do anything to stop them? The only people here were some Sisters, the Handmaids of Charity, who devoted themselves to helping the sick. The doctors had not even wanted them there. The doctors wanted medical people who were secular and military, not nuns. And in the face of this new danger they were even more useless! Worse than useless -- because that Paula (as she was known) di Rosa was actually moving to open the door!
When the door swung wide, the soldiers saw their way blocked with a great crucifix held by Paula di Rosa and two candles held by two of the six sisters who stood by her. Suddenly their frenzy to destroy disappeared, and full of shame before this display of courage and faith, they slunk back into the shadows.
Pray for us, all you angels and saints.

Just in case you are wondering what exactly Catholics believe, here is
The Apostles Creed
I believe in God, the Father Almighty, Creator of Heaven and earth; and in Jesus Christ, His only Son Our Lord, Who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died, and was buried.He descended into Hell; the third day He rose again from the dead; He ascended into Heaven, and sitteth at the right hand of God, the Father almighty; from thence He shall come to judge the living and the dead.I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy Catholic Church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body and life everlasting. Amen.
Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary, that never was it known that any one who fled to thy protection, implored thy help or sought thy intercession,was left unaided.Inspired with this confidence, I fly unto thee, O Virgin of virgins my Mother; to thee do I come, before thee I stand, sinful and sorrowful; O Mother of the Word Incarnate, despise not my petitions, but in thy clemency hear and answer me. Amen.
St. Joseph, her most chaste spouse, pray for us.
Soul of Christ, sanctify me; Body of Christ, save me; Blood of Christ, inebriate me; Water from Christ's side, wash me; Passion of Christ, strengthen me; O good Jesus, hear me; Within Thy wounds hide me; Suffer me not to be separated from Thee; From the malicious enemy defend me; In the hour of my death call me; And bid me come unto Thee; That I may praise Thee with Thy saints and with Thy angels Forever and ever. Amen.
Prayer to St. Anthony, Martyr of Desire

St. Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle, be our defense against the wickedness and snares of the devil; may God rebuke him, we humbly pray, and do thou O Prince of the heavenly hosts, by the divine power, thrust into hell Satan and all the evil spirits who prowl about the world seeking the ruin of souls. Amen.
Prayer to End Abortion
Lord God, I thank You today for the gift of my life, and for the lives of all my brothers and sisters. I know there is nothing that destroys more life than abortion, yet I rejoice that you have conquered death by the resurrection of Your Son. I am ready to do my part to end abortion. Today I commit myself never to be silent, never to be passive, and never to be forgetful of the unborn. I commit myself to be active in the pro-life movement, and never stop defending life until all my brothers and sisters are protected and our nation once again becomes a nation with liberty and justice, not just for some, but for all. Through Christ our Lord. Amen.
Prayer For Vocations
Send forth your Spirit, Lord, into the hearts of your faithful people, that we may be conscious of our vocation to holiness and sevice to others. Grant that many of us may dedicate ourselves to You through the priesthood and the religious life.We pray especially for the needs of our own parish and diocese. Grant that we may always have sufficient good and holy priests, and dedicated Sisters to serve our commumities.We pray, too, for religious orders; that generous men may join them to become zealous missionaries in preaching the Gospel in word and action, especially to the poor and abandoned.We make this prayer through Jesus Christ, Our Lord and Redeemer. Amen.
Prayer Before The Crucifix
Behold, O kind and gentle Jesus, I kneel before Thee and pray that Thou would impress upon my heart the virtues of faith, hope, and charity, with true repentance for my sins and a firm purpose of amendment. At the same time, with sorrow I meditate on Thy five precious wounds, having in mind the words which David spoke in prophecy: "They have pierced my hands and my feet. I can count all my bones."
Blessed be God.
Blessed be His Holy Name.
Blessed be Jesus Christ, true God and true Man.
Blessed be the Name of Jesus.
Blessed be His most Sacred Heart.
Blessed be His most Precious Blood.
Blessed be Jesus in the most Holy Sacrament of the Altar.

The Canton Repository: Psychologist suspects medical reason for Muhammad's visions
The Koran expressly forbids disparagement of the Prophet Muhammad, the founder of Islam. Clinical neuropsychologist Abbas Sadeghian said his new book, “Sword and Seizure,” is not meant as an offense to the prophet, but is a psychoanalysis of someone whose visions he thinks were caused by epilepsy.
Throughout history, religious figures experiencing visions have been labeled as possible epileptics, including St. Joan of Arc, Mormon church founder Joseph Smith, and St. Terese of Avila.
Ok, now I'm offended.
A Muslim-born native of Tehran, Iran, Sadeghian said he based his findings on his mental-health expertise and five years of researching historical writings and documents detailing the life of Muhammad; even the Koran itself.
“Every religion has a prophet who claims to hear from God,” he said. “During my work at psychiatric hospitals, I often ran into (patients) claiming to be prophets. You see this very commonly in hospitals.”
A licensed neuropsychologist since 1988, he earned his master’s and doctoral degrees from what became Alliant International University in San Diego, and completed his medical residency at the former Massillon State Hospital.
Sadeghian said he doesn’t believe Muhammad was mentally ill, just that he suffered from “complex partial seizures,” which display themselves through excessive sweating and light trembling, olfactory, auditory and visual hallucinations, epigastric sensations (bad taste), excessive perspiration and “hyper-religiosity.”
Heck, that could describe any goat rapist.
Sadeghian’s book is based on a paper he presented at New York University’s Fielding Institute in 2001.
“If you read the book, you’ll notice that I’m not looking to demean him,” he said. “He had a very high IQ. What I’ve tried to do is answer a scientific question, and that’s all.”
I wonder what he would have seen in those inkblot tests...
Asked if the same theory could apply to Jesus, Buddha or other religious figures, Sadeghian said there aren’t nearly as many independent historical documents detailing their lives.
“In order to be able to do proper analysis, you must have documentation independent of what the person wrote,” he said. “Muhammad lived longer and had people around him who were aware they were living in a historic moment. They documented in extreme detail.”
Sadeghian said he asked several neurologists, psychologists and medical physicians to read the book before it was published.
“I knew what I was writing would be very controversial,” he explained. “I didn’t want to go through history as the person who made a mistake. ... Almost everyone told me, it (book) makes sense.”
Reaction from other Muslims, however, has been decidedly mixed.
“When you’re dealing with Muslims, it very much depends on their nationality,” Sadeghian said. “The Iranians were extremely enthusiastic. I think the reason is, that country has been under religious oppression for 20 years. The Egyptians and Palestinians were totally negative.
“Some really tried to persuade me, tried to scare me out of doing it, telling me ‘Remember Salman Rushdie.’ I gave up everything — my family, my inheritance and my friends — to come here, so I can be free. If I don’t do this, why go through all that? What’s the purpose of being free?”
Well, at least the good doctor seems to get the whole American thingee.
Imam Ramez Islambouli, president of the Uqbah Mosque Foundation in Cleveland, said that while Sadeghian’s theory is nothing new, it is flat wrong.
“From a religious perspective, it is matter of faith,” he said. “The response from an Islamic perspective is, ‘What proof do you have?’ ”
Islambouli likens Muhammad’s experience to that of St. Paul, who reported having a vision of Jesus while traveling the road to Damascus. He also noted that some people who visit the Holy Land experience a phenomenon known as the “Jerusalem syndrome.”
“How can you make a diagnosis of someone who lived 1,500 years ago, without meeting that patient?” he asked. “The other thing is, physicians who treat epilepsy would argue that you can have epilepsy and medical problems and still have a sound mind.”
Dostoyevsky, for instance?
“Even throughout his prophetic career, many people questioned and rejected Muhammad’s reports of visions,” Islambouli said. “From the moment Muhammad claimed he was a prophet, he was rejected by some and labeled as delusional.”
“There is no medical evidence to support that he had epilepsy,” said Dr. Asma Mobin-Uddin, a physician and president of the Council on American-Islamic Relations, Ohio Chapter.
Ah, CAIR...the experts on everything mohammedan. I believe their motto is "Speaking and Thinking for Moslems Since 1994."
Mobin-Uddin said people who suffer from epileptic seizures also experience “post-ictal” episodes, meaning they can’t remember what happened during a seizure. In contrast, Muhammad could recall his visions in minute detail.
“These basic things, medically, don’t go along,” she said.
Mobin-Uddin reiterated that Muhammad frequently has been the target of speculation by people who doubted his experiences.
“The charge has been refuted,” she said.

The Harvard Crimson: New Core Loses 'Faith'
The task force charged with replacing Harvard’s Core curriculum has dropped its headline-grabbing proposal for a “Reason and Faith” requirement—a category that would have made Harvard the only Ivy to require its undergrads to study religion.

The Capitol Fax Blog has some interesting tidbits on the AmericaLast media's current fetishistic obsession, Obamarama:
* The Washington Post’s Howard Kurtz takes a look at the Chicago media’s coverage of the Rezko-Obama matter and concludes:
This seems like a minor-league issue. But as Bill Clinton learned about his money-losing Arkansas land deal, when you run for president, everything in your
past gets magnified.
* A Washington Times editorial today takes a look at Obama’s pre US Senate record and concludes:
In short, Mr. Obama’s record as an Illinois state senator was down-the-line liberal. For someone representing a liberal district in Chicago, that’s not very surprising. What is surprising is how Mr. Obama’s liberal label has been effectively wiped clean since he entered the U.S. Senate.
* Joe Novak jabs again at Obama’s wife, Michelle, for her position on a corporate board of directors involved in massive layoffs.
Hispanic union workers like Santiago Vasquez lose jobs because Michelle Obama wants to improve efficiency? She defends layoffs telling Chicago Crains Business
that her firm “hopes to expand and hire more workers, many minorities, once it boosts its efficiency.”
* New York Daily News columnist/blogger notes that Obama has picked up the support of a bigtime money guy.
Lou Susman, John Kerry’s national finance chairman in 2004 and, reportedly, a supporter of Tom Vilsack in 2008, told me yesterday that if Barack Obama runs
for president, he’ll support Obama.
Susman’s comment is another mark of the entree Obama has to the very top tier of Democratic moneymen, one I wrote about in this week’s column.
* Here’s an excerpt from his column:
There were only about a dozen people in George Soros’ midtown conference room to meet Illinois Sen. Barack Obama, who is getting used to crowds of thousands at bookstore readings and public speeches.
But the men meeting Obama last Monday still matter more in Democratic presidential politics than your average bookstore crowd. They were some of New
York’s elite political donors, including John Kerry’s top New York fund-raiser from 2004, Hassan Nemazee, and the former chief of staff at Bill Clinton’s Treasury Department, Michael Froman.
Also there were financiers Blair Effron, Mark Gallogly and Orin Kramer, each of whom donates tens of thousands of dollars to Democrats and can raise
tens of thousands more from friends. (Soros himself had met alone with Obama earlier in the day; that evening, he was reading from his own new book at a
Barnes & Noble store.)
When Obama - considered Hillary Clinton’s most serious threat - meets with the biggest of the big-money donors, it sends a clear message.
* Speaking of money, he’s also picking up a lot of small donations.
A political action committee that Obama has formed already has taken in more than $1 million this year in the kind of low-dollar donations that reflect excitement among ordinary voters. More than $165,000 flowed in during a six-week period this fall that coincided with the Democratic senator’s highly publicized book tour, according to federal disclosure documents.
* Alan Greenblatt of Governing Magazine’s blog notices some pushback [eg: this sort of stuff] from the DC punditry about Obama and offers this analysis:
Finally, I think the resistance to Obama is rooted in this — he’s popular with the public way before a newcomer to the national scene should be. By which
I mean that only political reporters and the people who work the system for a living are supposed to be paying attention and making their judgments.
“The Gang of 500,” as ABC’s newsletter The Note calls the political insider class, is supposed to weigh and pass judgment on candidates long before voters even in Iowa or New Hampshire have started paying serious attention. At this point, the only stories are supposed to be about which candidate is hiring which adviser, and what that signals about what the smart money thinks about his (or now her) chances.
Obama circumvents all that. He’s a star winning the hearts and minds of the people regardless of whatever skepticism the chattering class in Washington may harbor about him. No wonder that class is starting to hate him.
* George Will, of all people, says: “Run Now, Obama”
* I think Rush Limbaugh played this snippet that “Libertarian Reason” blog wrote about today.
New York Times columnist Maureen Dowd wrote a piece last week in which she teased 2008 presidential candidate Barack Obama about his big ears. Well it
seems he can’t quite handle that. Microphones picked up a conversation he had with Dowd after a speech of his in New Hampshire last Sunday:
“You talked about my ears, and I just want to put you on notice: I’m very sensitive about - what I told them was - I was teased relentlessly when I was a kid about my big ears.” Dowd replies comradely, “Oh, we’re just trying to toughen you up!” The rest of the conversation is unclear.
He’s “sensitive” about his ears? The cartoonists and blogggers are gonna have a field day with this one. Perhaps he could adjust his hair style or consider ear reduction surgery.
Well, anybody who makes fun of Senator Token's ears is a rabid racist who should be shot. I'm pretty sure all those hateful Condi Rice cartoons featured big ears...
Anyway, Mo "Better" Dowdy should not be shot. (At least not for the big ears crack.) Little Miss Dowdy is a terminal adolescent who relates to males of the species at an 8th grade level. The only way she can get boys to notice her is to tease them.
For instance, she has had a major crush on Bush the Younger for years. She calls him "dum-dum poopy head" and other terms of endearment important to the class of little females whose greatest aspiration is to be one of the Spice Girls.
Besides the obvious war fighting benefits, this also means we might not have to pay reparations to the Hitler family.
Army Times: Judge: Detainees can’t use U.S. courts to plead case A federal judge upheld the Bush administration’s new terrorism law Wednesday, agreeing that Guantanamo Bay detainees do not have the right to challenge their imprisonment in U.S. courts.

You know I could not resist the temptation to post this one, kiddies.
From Osgrow.com (suppliers of "camel, wildebeest, frogs legs, ostrich, kangaroo, crocodile, locusts, snails, venison, wild boar, bison, rattlesnake, buffalo, zebra, springbok, blesbok, duck, pigeon, kudu, eland, impala, guinea fowl, and rabbit" throughout the U.K.):
1 Osgrow Camel fillet trimmed of sinew and cut into medallions
Oliver Oil (Olive oil? - F.G.)
4 small onions
1 Carrot, finely chopped
250ml Shiraz wine or red wine
250ml Beef stock
To make the glaze, fry olive oil and onions, carrots and celery in a pan until slightly brown, then add cut off trimmings and cook until brown. Then add wine & beef stock and simmer for approx. 30 minutes.
Strain and whisk in butter pieces until the liquid has a buttery glaze, then brush camel fillet with olive oil and grill to your taste.
To serve pour shiraz butter glaze onto a plate, arrange camel medallions in a pyramid shape and serve with a tossed salad.
I can't wait to see the catfights over this between the multiculturalist morons and the PETA pansies...
AP: Tech fired for killing camel at airport
Ankara, Turkey - A group of Turkish aviation technicians were so happy to be rid of the last of a batch of troublesome planes that they sacrificed a camel on the tarmac of Istanbul's Ataturk International Airport.
The image of an airport worker raising a large piece of bloodied camel meat on the tarmac on Tuesday adorned the front pages of several newspapers, drawing the wrath of transportation authorities, who promptly sacked the a senior technician on Wednesday.
Under pressure from the European Union, Turkey has introduced fines for those who slaughter animals outside special facilities. The sacrificing of a camel at Turkey's busiest airport was regarded as a disgrace.
"This is a grave incident. Is it compatible with the image of a modern Turkey, trying to enter the EU?," said opposition lawmaker Huseyin Guler on Wednesday.
Transportation Minister Binali Yildirim condemned the incident.
"It is not possible to approve of such an incident," said Yildirim.
Turkish Airlines authorities launched an investigation and sacked chief technician Sukru Can for approving the sacrifice.
Turks traditionally sacrifice animals as an offering to God for when their wishes come true, in addition to sacrificing animals during the Muslim Eid al-Adha holiday, a ritual commemorating the biblical account of God's provision of a ram for Abraham to sacrifice as he was about to slay his son.
Once again, it's the Jews...
"We are happy to be rid of planes which frequently broke down," the daily Cumhuriyet quoted Can as saying after the sacrificing ceremony.
The crew sacrificed the camel to mark the return of the last of 11 four-engined Avro RJ 100 jets leased from Britain to Turkish Airlines 13 years ago.
I think all men of good will can get together and agree this whole kerfuffle is the fault of shoddy English workmanship.

I came to Carthage, where I found myself in the midst of a hissing cauldron of lusts. I had not yet fallen in love, but I was in love with the idea of it, and this feeling that something was missing made me despise myself for not being more anxious to satisfy the need. I began to look around for some object for my love, since I badly wanted to love something. —St. Augustine, Confessions
Here is a big surprise for you, kiddies. Female "sexual freedom" is really nothing more than the triumph of the male orgasm. Males get what they have always wanted - females without morals - and the females get mental disorders!
Ain't modernity grand?
From OpinionJournal: 'Unprotected'
Sexual freedom is damaging to students. But health officials must not judge.
By Danielle Crittenden
"My patients were hurting, they looked to me and what could I do?" So confesses an anonymous campus physician in the beginning of her startling memoir. Over the course of 200 pages, she tells story after story about suffering young women. If these women were ailing from eating disorders, or substance abuse, or almost any other medical or psychological problem, their university health departments would spring to their aid. "Cardiologists hound patients about fatty diets and insufficient exercise. Pediatricians encourage healthy snacks, helmets and discussion of drugs and alcohol. Everyone condemns smoking and tanning beds."
Unfortunately, the young women described in "Unprotected" have fallen victim to one of the few personal troubles that our caring professions refuse to treat or even acknowledge: They have been made miserable by their "sexual choices." And on that subject, few modern doctors dare express a word of judgment.
Thus the danger of sexually transmitted diseases is too often overlooked in the lifestyle choices of the young women at the unnamed college where the author works. But the dangers go far beyond the biological. A girl named Heather, for instance, has succumbed to an intense bout of depression. The doctor presses her to think of possible causes. She can't think of anything. Then she says: "Well, I can think of one thing: since Thanksgiving, I've had a 'friend with benefits.' And actually I'm kind of confused about that."
Yeah, baby! "Benefits"!
Heather continues: "I want to spend more time with him, and do stuff like go shopping or see a movie. That would make it a friendship for me. But he says no, because if we do those things, then in his opinion we'd have a relationship--and that's more than he wants. And I'm confused, because it seems like I don't get the 'friend' part, but he still gets the 'benefits.'" It finally dawns on her: "I'm really unhappy about that. It's hard to be with him and then go home and be alone."
It is not that females are less intelligent than males, they are simply more vulnerable.
The feminist thugs (male and female) reject both possibilities. Most of them refuse to admit modern females are suffering from sex at all. And those that do merely prescribe the psychological equivalent of "walk it off".
Heather is not an unrepresentative case. The author meets patients who cannot sleep, who mutilate themselves, who exhibit every symptom of psychic distress. Often they don't even know why they feel the way they do. As these girls see it, they are acting like sensible, responsible adults: They practice "safe sex" and limit their partners to a mere two or three per year.
Only two or three? What in the name of Huge "Tiny" Hefner is going on here?
They are following the best advice that modern psychology can offer. They are enjoying their sexual freedom, experimenting, discovering themselves. They can't understand what might be wrong. And yet something is wrong. As the author observes, surveys have found that "sexually active teenage girls were more than three times as likely to be depressed, and nearly three times as likely to have had a suicide attempt, than girls who were not sexually active."
Ahh...modern psychology. Can't you just smell the heady mixture of testoterone and brimstone, ladies?
SEX IS DEATH, baby.
And should all this joyous experimentation end in externally verifiable effects--should girls find themselves afflicted with a disease or an unwanted pregnancy--then (and only then) do their campus "women's health" departments go to work for them. They will book the abortion, hand out a condom or prescribe a course of antibiotic treatment. And then they will pat their young patients on the shoulder and send them back into the world, without an admonishing word about the conduct that got them into trouble in the first place.
Maybe they aren't fornicating enough! Did the neocon nazis at the WSJ and this "doctor" (who may very well be a church-goer) ever think that these hot babes may need to pleasure more men? Maybe they are suffering from some medieval guilt thingee and clintonizing a couple dozen guys a year (instead of a paltry two or three) would smack down whatever bit of conscience is keeping these man-pleasers from doing their darwinistic duty!
Oh, and don't forget the lesbians. They need screwed up girls, too.
"Look at how different health decisions are valued," the author advises. "When Stacey avoids fatty foods she is being health conscious. . . . When she stays away from alcohol, she is being responsible and resisting her impulses. For all these she is endorsed for keeping long-term goals in mind instead of giving in to peer pressure and immediate gratification. But if she makes a conscious decision to delay sexual activity, she's simply 'not sexually active'--given no praise or endorsement."
If anything, the more "transgressive" the behavior, the greater the reluctance to judge. On a University of Michigan Web site, "'external water sports' is described as a type of 'safer sex.'" (The phrase has nothing to do with a swimming pool.) At Virginia Commonwealth University, "cross-dressing is called a 'recreational activity.' " The sexual advice blog "Go Ask Alice," sponsored by Columbia University, provides helpful hints to students on ménages à trois ("Nothing wrong with giving it a try, so long as you're all practicing safer sex"), swing-club etiquette and phone sex ("Getting Started").
When the author treats Brian, a young homosexual man who is engaged in "high-risk behavior with multiple people," she discovers that, by policy, she cannot insist that he be tested for HIV. And if he were to submit to voluntary testing, and the tests were to prove positive, she would not be allowed to report this information to the local department of health--although of course she would be required to do so if he had contracted any other communicable disease. Isn't promoting health, even saving lives, "worth the risk of feeling judged?" Apparently not.
You mean buggery is not the pinnacle of mental and physical health?
Doogie Howser, call your office.
And yet, not all judgments are to be avoided. The author of this vivid and urgent book has published it anonymously precisely because she fears that if her employers and colleagues heard her unwelcome views, they would judge her negatively--and punish her, personally and professionally. The anonymity, however understandable, is a shame: Her cause could use a visible and vocal crusader.

We are well on our way to destroying our women, boys. Sure, it may be fun for ten minutes or so, but what do you do after that? We all have to go to sleep eventually, and most of us are not rich enough to hire boyguards or quick enough to get the gun from under the pillow in time to stop every revenge-fueled psychotic female we have created...

- First of all, the word is SEX, not GENDER. If you are ever tempted to use the word GENDER, don't. The word is SEX! SEX! SEX! SEX! For example: "My sex is male." is correct. "My gender is male." means nothing. Look it up. What kind of sick neo-Puritan nonsense is this? Idiot left-fascists, get your blood-soaked paws off the English language. Hence I am choosing "male" under protest.
