Cheney seconded. Franken corrected. McMurtry shelved. Plus much more, including the debut of a new French friend; minimum wagers; planning Al Goreâ€™s future, and playing through.
SATURDAY MORNING CARTOONS
Re: Enemy Central’s The Heat Is On :
I truly enjoyed reading this on Saturday morning. I wouldn’t miss a day of The American Spectator.
It gave me great pleasure to hear VP Cheney’s remarks to Leahy. I
have used worse than that in my reference to Leahy (and Kennedy,
and KKK Byrd, and Clinton, etc.). At least I can laugh about the
Democrats. Gore seems to have lost any sense of humor if he ever
had one. I would be the first to sign any papers that would put
Maureen Dowd in Iraq. She doesn’t offer much but maybe the
terrorists would understand her kind of hate. She could take Paul
Krugman along for companionship. If she needs female
companionship I suggest Ellen Ratner. I saw her this morning on
the TV with a turkey. Had trouble figuring out which one was the
turkey. There goes that sense of humor again. If I don’t laugh at
the Democrats I might actually believe them. Poor souls are truly

“The Floydada corridor”?
Hey! I lived on it, right there in Crowell, county seat of Foard County, where Thalia is located.
I never heard any local wits refer to it as that. Perhaps I didn’t hang out with folk who were quite as witty as the ones Mr. McMurtry did.
“Fornicating presidents will find no welcome there”? Well, hey! Senator Kennedy carried the county when I lived there in 1960. I guess he wasn’t yet a fornicating president. Yeah, that explains it.
“Elephant gun”? Mr. McMurtry must know President Clinton pretty

Having been in the middle of Jesuit high school training at the
same time that Clinton was at G-town, I find it extraordinary
that any Jesuit inclined to see Slick Willie as a Jesuit recruit,
would also find it praiseworthy that he “write(s) like a Catholic
think(s) like a Catholic.” In the Regis High School class of 171,
this accolade would have been viewed by faculty peaceniks as
grounds for suspension, rather than a résumé enhancement.

Here’s a newsflash for Bill Clinton. They never stopped making RC
Cola and it is still available nationally. He can’t even
reminisce truthfully about minor points.

Re: Lawrence Henry’s The Culture of Iron Will:
Yes, and the scary thing is that organizations that actually do
stuff, like produce tangible goods or provide healthcare or
education are run the same way.

He gets it dead right.

Re: Brandon Crocker’s Minimum Wage Myths:
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?
