Sir Richard Francis Burton, English explorer, linguist, author, soldier, and first Caucasian to visit Mecca during the Hajj, said, “Tell me a man’s religion and I can tell you about half the man. Show me his wife, and I can tell you the rest.”p>What would the famous Englishman say about Senator Obama? br> — Ira M. Kessel /p>
Klein didn’t say it. Podhoretz didn’t say it. Nor did Rush or Sean. But does anyone else really think that Michelle, not my belle, said “for the first time in my adult lifetime, I am really proud of my country” for the first time ever? I think not.
Michelle and maybe Barack and almost certainly all of their ideological sycophants have been saying exactly that over and over, party after party, rally after rally, year after year, kind of like the incantations of monks over the centuries between the fall of Rome and the Age of Reason. The biggest shock to Michelle had to be that repeating, just one more time, in a public context, what she had said innumerable times privately, would cause such a fuss.
It should be a red flag for any thinking man to always come to the conclusion that he’s “right” and they’re “wrong”. But I suggest that the most reliable standard to be applied to “right” and “wrong” is which utterance survives public scrutiny and the light of day and which doesn’t. By that standard, red flag or no red flag, nothing a Democrat/Liberal says is “right”, because it never survives public scrutiny and the light of day.p>Learned your lesson, Michelle? br> — Frank Natoli

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?
