Ms. Fabrizio is once again “bang on,” as our British cousins say. Mrs. Clinton is a woman of many parts and has to be. She must, of course, favor mandatory membership in unions for each and every American (to get the millions unions give to radical leftists) while not fending the millions of Americans who see unions as rackets and rife with corruption. She must appear as a child advocate while exhorting women to have them ripped from their wombs. She must persuade Americans that she is a rational, likeable person even in the face of vicious, personal, attacks on everyone who dares disagree with her. She must also convince the masses in New York that she will stay their senator for six years and not run for President in 2008.
This will be the easiest thing she has to do because folks from New York are crazy. (If they weren’t they’d move somewhere like California or Massachusetts where taxes are lower and services better.)p>And yes, she must appear a strong, confident and capable, liberated woman who stands firmly in her own two feet to become President. And she has to do this while her husband figuratively slaps her in the face with his serial philandering. Providentially, Ms. Fabrizio also provides a link to the Clinton Foundation’s advertisement for interns. It advertises that interns will have a “hands on” experience. Does anybody doubt the truth of that? br> — Jay W. Molyneaux br> Wellington, Florida /p> p> I realize that crazy Cindy Sheehan has criticized Hillary but that shouldn’t make us think that the crazy left will abandon her. The whole Democrat enterprise is largely a fraud all the time. When they say they want to make abortions safe and rare, the whole party knows that the rare part is not sincere. When John Kerry supported the definition of marriage that had a man and a woman in it, even the phony Andrew Sullivan knew he was just kidding. When Congress gave President Clinton their approval to invade Iraq, the liberals knew that the only thing invaded would be an intern or two. When Bill used to carry that massive Bible into church, nobody in the party worried that he had gone to the dark side. Nobody in the party was even remotely concerned about Al Gore’s mangled Bible quotes. When John Kerry was photographed carrying a bird that somebody else shot, the party didn’t believe for a second that somehow a gun nut was leading the ticket. The examples of their total insincerity about practically all issues are legion. Not only are they used to hiding what they really believe from the country, they don’t even think to deeply about it themselves. That thinking would destroy their phony progressive ideology. br> —
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?
