Vacation

Friday, June 27th, 2003

I’m officially on vacation. I will return on July 5th, but probably won’t get to blogging until the 6th. I will be staying with friends at a lovely beach house in Maine. And thankfully, I’ll be away from a computer for the entire week.

Since I’ll be gone on the fourth, I want to leave you all with this link, the Declaration of Independence. Perhaps you can give it a read sometime this week and spend a moment thinking what it means to be an American.

Later!

Howard Dean may make them feel good, but he’s another McGovern and generally unelectable. A number of TV commentators have speculated that if Dean runs away with it at the MoveOn.org poll, then he has a real chance at the ballot box. If the dems don’t want him to get the nomination, then they best convince some of the other candidates to drop out now.

 
 

More on the Sodomy Case

Friday, June 27th, 2003

TomPaine.com has an interesting take on how the case wound up in court in the first place. Their take is that it was a setup from the get-go. It’s also worth a read because it notes that conservatives are generally split on this issue (in other words, they’re not all Bible thumping nuts).

STROM THURMOND DEAD

Thursday, June 26th, 2003

Strom Thurmond is dead (link via drudge, only link that would come up). I’d mourn him, but his sorry ass was pretty racist. I just admire the old geezer for living so damned long. See you in hell Strom. Because Lord knows I ain’t goin’ any place else…

 
 

Dallas Dumbass

Thursday, June 26th, 2003

By now, everybody has heard about that woman in Dallas who ran over a homeless man and was convicted of murder today. I hadn’t full realized just how she’d been caught:

Biggs’ body was found in a park the day after the crash. Authorities thought he had been hit by a car but had no leads until four months later, when one of Mallard’s acquaintances called police and said Mallard talked about the incident at a party.

And the last words she said as she was carried away in cuffs, “And I would have gotten away with it too, it it weren’t for my meddling self…”

Ann Coulter – Treason

Thursday, June 26th, 2003

Ann Coulter has printed a column that appears to be an excerpt from her upsoming book, Treason. Coulter can sometimes use hyperbole to insult her opponents, but she’s usually factually correct. Her column deals specifically with McCarthy and McCarthyism. It’s worth a read.

 
 

France

Thursday, June 26th, 2003

France has truly leapt off the deep end. Try this on for size:

When 16-year-old Fatiha wore a headscarf to her public high school here earlier this year, the Muslim girl’s teachers were outraged. They saw it as a divisive religious symbol and refused to let her take classes. The school’s principal sought help from a higher authority: France’s full-time headscarf mediator.

From the WSJ (subsc req). Unreal. That’s what happens when you really do try to base your government on politically correct principles.
