The piece on Howard Dean by “the Prowler” published today contains this statement, “Compounding the Clinton Conundrum is the growing sense that Hillary is positioning herself to at least dip her toe in possible presidential waters 18 months from now.” Eighteen months from now!!!!!p>This is obscene. The best reform of our election process that could possibly be enacted, would be to make campaigning for public office in general, and the Presidency in particular, ABSOLUTELY ILLEGAL until ninety days prior to the election. The punishment for performing any campaigning of any kind, or allowing such activities to be performed on your behalf, should be life imprisonment, totally incommunicado. I am particularly incensed by the prospect of presidential campaigning, by anyone, especially Democ rats, and definitely by TW4 (The Wicked Witch of the West Wing), beginning a scant 18 months from now, because I live in New Hampshire. We have barely cleansed our state from the most recent infestation of politicians, and now you say it is about to begin again as soon as 18 months from now. Horrors! br> — W. B. Heffernan, Jr. /p> p> Been away for a while so I’m just catching up on things. So Howie is the front runner for DNC? How nice. Just what the dems need or is it really just what the dems are. That does bode well for the GOP all the way around. Dean’s legacy here in Vermont is just starting to come to fruition and what a disaster it really is. Hopefully, he will run the DNC with the same expertise. His chairmanship will also alienate the more moderate members of that party to the point where we will probably see a third party come out while the DNC withers on the vine. Now, I’m no expert on politics like Dick Morris or the rest of those people, but I do know Howie to some degree. He represents the unstable loony left perfectly. Like the Pied Piper, he will lead these crunchies on a trip to oblivion. Meanwhile, the Clintonites had better be looking for a new place to hang their hats and that could be the third party aforementioned. It won’t happen overnight. After all, it took Howie quite a few years to destroy Vermont and we’re a little tiny burg. br> — Pete Chagnon /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?
