Me thinks Stephen Rivers dost protest too much over the alleged quote Bob Tyrrell attributed to Spielberg during his meeting with Castro in Havana. Yeah, it’s possible Spielberg never said it, but I bet it’s equally true that during Spielberg’s sumptuous dinner with Castro, Spielberg wisely chose not avail himself of the opportunity to engage in boorish behavior towards his host, as did Senator Webb of Virginia towards President Bush.p>And not simply because Fidel and Spielberg are politically simpatico, either. No, despite the fawning rhetoric the Left has for kindred spirits like ole Fidel, I suspect Spielberg was wearily on his very best behavior because he was staring the tiger in the eye, up close and personal, mano y br> mano, sans an American marine from Gitmo there to protect him. Yep, you just never know what a brutal thug, with no respect for human life, might just do, even to a famous Hollywood icon. Best not take any chances here, after all, one can only get away with that sort of bravado, and still have a tongue to talk about it with friends over sushi, when at the White House. I notice also that Mr. Rivers did not disparage the Cuban state controlled media until safely back in the USA. Consider the source indeed. br> — A.

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?
