But a degree of gullible stupidity is what the media presume of their consumers in order to keep them perpetually fearful. Proving it’s never too early to start worrying about things over which you have little control, they have, with great gusto, been trumpeting the arrival of hurricane season. Like young children anticipating Christmas, the press has visions of sandbags dancing in their heads. Like a ballteam breaking spring training, they are tanned and rested, confident of another banner year.
This season they have a new pitch in their arsenal. In the perfect propaganda storm, a strong surge of liberal media has merged with a high pressure global warming front to reach the conclusion that the coming Sturm und Drang and its accompanying misery will be of our own making; that is, we greedy, SUV-driving, Kyoto-hating, CO2-exhaling Republicans will be responsible for sending forth tempests unseen since Prospero. The only solution, I suppose, is that the entire GOP hold its collective breath, at least until November 7 of this year.p>So be aware, alert, and earth-friendly and remember: if you must evacuate, please do so on foot or bicycle so as not to further offend the greenhouse gods. And in that liberal spirit, I wish you all a happy hurricane season and urge you not to procrastinate, and get your shopping done early; just please, stay away from Wal-Mart.

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?
