I’ve been in process of moving cities. I haven’t forgotten you dear readers. This weekend the home internet is getting hooked up, and I’ll be back to regale you with the usual stuff. My brief recap of the week:
Iraq is still a hell hole, and if this is “success” we should pull up the chocks on Afghanistan today.
Kagan is a leftist and an extremist, but also witty and likable, and this is why she’ll be confirmed. Indeed, this may be why Harvard Federalist Chapter liked her: she had a sense of fair play and liked the exchange of ideas.
Thank you WASPs for letting us displace you (at the NY Times of course). We won’t return the favor for the next up and coming group of people looking to displace us, of course.
Ammo on sale at ammunitiontogo.com. 1000 rounds .223 for $200. What a way to celebrate Second Amendment Supreme Court victory this week, which was expected after Heller, but a nice triumph after all my years disarmed by Daley’s thugs in Chicago.
Al Gore has gone from enviro-crazy to possible criminal. A lot of folks are sugegsting this is beyond the realm of possibility–and to me it’s equally likely this woman is an opportunist engaged in high stakes blackmail–but, then again, the sexual passions can be strong and overwhelming even for people otherwise successful. Look at Eliot Spitzer or Bill Clinton. Plus, Al Gore seems to have become very angry and nasty after the 2000 election. Anything’s possible. What a fitting denoument for the Clinton administration if this comes to pass.
I’m hopping mad that Obama’s felaty to unions and myopic concern for peacetime environmental regulations is keeping effective, foreign, non-union oil skimming vessels from assisting in the Gulf of Mexico.
