Actually, though, they mean to do something even better. They hope to do precisely what Richard Cohen acknowledged worked for him, the Liberal’s liberal. Cohen said that even if each of the charges (on another matter) could be refuted, nevertheless he was able to discern guilt based upon the ESSENCE of the charges!
I’m a bit surprised that so far I haven’t read any columnist taking Cohen to task for such a breathtakingly unfair conclusion, even for a Liberal’s liberal.
And he’s not alone…one of the more outspoken critics of the Duke lacrosse team, as the charges against them began to fall apart, concluded that even though they weren’t individually guilty that somehow as a class of people they were. Privileged white males were simply guilty of racism, no matter what they did or did not do to deserve the charge.p>As Cohen explained, it’s not a matter of the charges being false, or refutable. What we might call a stinking pile, liberal Democrats smell as a fragrant essence. br> — Gregg Calkins /p>
Democrats seem to be doing a re-make of Charles Dickens’ Great Expectations with Karl Rove as “Pip” the orphaned boy who made it big. “Able Magwitch” is Pips benefactor who of course is played by President Bush. And “Jaggers” the lawyer guiding Pip is cast as the Republican Party.p>”Estella,” Pip’s love interest, is played by Chuck Hagel. “Miss Havisham” is played by the Senate. And “Dolge Orlick,” the embodiment of evil, is ably played by Senator Leahy. Senator Leahy could also be the star of “The Most Uninspiring Man I Ever Met.” br> — Howard Lohmuller br> Seabrook, Texas /p>
All these witch-hunts of Republicans would be a lot more enjoyable if Republicans would fight back with the simple truth about the Democrat party.p>But they remain gutless, and doubtful of the rightness of their own philosophy, seemingly ever eager to compromise leading to their own downfall. Every Republican that lost their office in the recent elections did so because they lost their principles.
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?
