Referring specifically to David Hogberg’s “Soft on Terrorism” article of July 30, and other pieces written lately at the Spectator, WHO CARES that Nancy Pelosi has a “monotone”? I mean, who cares? Isn’t this just juvenile name calling? Really, how does this advance your point of view? It has nothing to do with the issues that you care about. Would you say that about a candidate you support? Would you say that about the President, that he is well known for screwing up the English language?
I’m am liberal politically. If I were a political commentator, I wouldn’t mention ridiculous side points, like whether Sen. Kerry was sweating during his speech, or whether Vice President Cheney swore at a member of Congress, or whether Sen. Kerry looked goofy in a clean-suit. I would STICK TO THE ISSUES. And frankly, name calling just decreases the space you have to discuss the issues, and, as far as I feel, just dilutes your message to me, and makes me trust your points of view all the less.p>Believe it or don’t, I actually try to put myself in the writer’s point of view when I read one of your articles. I really believe in political discourse, in talking about the issues. Don’t YOU any more? Whenever I see name-calling, I just trust the writer so much less. Is this what your supposedly “correct, right-thinking” journalism has come to, NAME CALLING? I mean, who the hell cares? br> — David Scott Pearce br> Washington, D.C. /p>
Why are John Kerry and the Democrats afraid of the T-words? It’s simple. They’re just engaged in their favorite past-time: cognitive dissonance. Maybe it’s better put: “See no evil, hear no evil.”
So, if they say “terrorist” and “terrorism,” that means they may have to actually do something, if pushed hard enough and long enough. And if they have to deal with the two Ts — which they do not want to do, regardless of Mr. Kerry’s Boston bluster — all they can creatively muster is their failed law-and-enforcement, send-the-T-for-terrorists-a-legal summons approach. They also would resort to the standard America-is-to-blame-for-everything, we’ll-rollover-and-surrender approach favored by the European-appeasers wing of the Democrat Party.
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?
