They’re a hoot, right?
The Times, which wants to raise your taxes, equalize heterosexual marriage with any sexual desire anywhere at any time between those of any sex, age or species, which believes Saddam Hussein should have been left undisturbed to pursue his quest of killing Jews at $25,000 a pop but that the starkly anti-Semitic Al Sharpton’s support of Ned Lamont — or Lamont’s acceptance of that support while running against a Jew — is not worth a verbal shrug…the Times is the monitor of all things moderate?
The Times wouldn’t know a moderate if its editors had their high heels polished by one. America has long since gotten the deal here. The Times asks of Lieberman “whether…he learned that changing is necessary.” It is a question that many are asking of the Times itself.

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?
