Why not give it out it at the end of each year they way RET gives out his Coogler awards?
Finalists could be determined while quaffing a few fine domestic ales at a meeting held at an establishment sort of like McSorley’s Old Ale House.
Black tie, of course, and Cigars would be mandatory.
The host tavern would receive a special plaque honoring its induction into the Great American Saloon Hall of Fame.

Regarding Jed Babbin’s “A Special Place in Hell” and speculation generated therefrom. I believe everyone in the White House knew from the start what we now know, and the thinking was “give ‘em all the rope they need to hang themselves.” That is certainly what I would have done to the seedy Joe Wilson and his fair Valerie. Sound Machiavellian? Maybe just Karlrovian or even Georgebushian. Texans are pretty good poker players.p>We could cancel the national debt if we woke up tomorrow morning with all the misspent special prosecutor money back in the Treasury. This has been worth it. Or would be if we could make Joe Wilson work he rest of his sorry life paying the legal bills of others. br> — Diane Smith br> San Francisco, California /p>
Jed Babbin is again much more of a gentleman than I am concerning what should happen to Armitage and Powell.
The special award I’d like to see them receive is delivered at massive speed with the help of an ancient Chinese invention.
For the life of me I’ll never understand, regardless of his Christian beliefs, why Bush and his “new tone” would allow this kind of back stabbing and treasonous actions. Being at war now I’d prefer the old drinking frat boy Bush who wouldn’t take this crap.p>Between Republicans like Powell, McCain, Graham, Warner, cowards in the House, etc. it’s getting more and more difficult to be persuaded they are still better than the Democrats retaking Congress. br> — Greg Barnard br> Franklin, Tennessee /p> p> The whole Novak/Armitage/Plame affair is sordid beyond belief. But central to the whole affair is the question of why Colin (The Most Admired Man in America) Powell allowed this matter to drag on for so long. The opinion of many Americans, especially conservatives, of Colin Powell has changed a great deal over the past three or four years. First, he sat on his duff in Washington instead of going to Turkey to strong arm the Turks to allow the 101st Airborne and The British Special Forces to come into Iraq from the north to cut off the retreat of the Iraq Army at the beginning of the war. In the opinion of many that had a great deal to do with the development of the insurgency. The failure to gain that permission lay directly with the Department of State and Powell. When we failed to find WMD, Powell began to position himself, I believe through Armitage and others, to make one and all aware that he regretted his testimony before the UN on WMD. Then, the Plame mess. And, a few days ago, this “moral basis of the war on terror” nonsense. I think old General Powell has a lot to answer for but he will never be held to account by the MSM. br> — Elwin E. Fraley , M.D. br> Eden Prairie, Minnesota /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?
