I have to concur with much of what Wlady says — I watched NBC’s coverage and it was similar to that on ABC. Tom Brokaw et al. could not even let the President out of the Congress before they cut to Senator John Kerry in New Hampshire in an attempt to debunk the speech just concluded. But as the Senator tried to squelch the message with a trail of “no’s,” all I could think of was the “Officer Barbrady” character on the TV show “South Park” — “Nothing to see here, folks, move along, move along” (against a background of things like a Mecha-giant Barbra Streisand fighting it out with a Mecha-giant Leonard Maltin).p>But I also concur on the Democratic response being not only cheesily sequestered but cheesily presented. Representative Nancy “It’s time for my closeup, Mr. De Mille” Pelosi and Senator Tom “It’s only got 30,000 miles on it, honest” Daschle were the most ill-suited presenters that they have used in many years. Even the great bloviator, Senator Ted “I can still wiggle like a five-year-old in church” Kennedy could have done better. br> — Cookie Sewell br> Aberdeen, Maryland /p>
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
