YOU A TERRORIST? DO YOU PROMISE?
Re: Andrew Zibilla’s letter (under “Red Flags Galore”) in Reader Mail’s Clearance Denied:
If they did investigate Senator Obama, they did it illegally. Please read your Constitution or better yet, listen to Senator McCain’s “speech” at the Alfred E. Smith Dinner: the only legal vetting is the Constitutional requirements to run for office. Even Senator Obama’s acquaintance, Mr. Ayers, could run (and theoretically, be elected) for that office, without any sort of “vetting”.
This is assuming, of course, that they would repeat the Constitutional Oath of Office, which I do believe they have to do.

Re: Diane Smith’s letter (under “Diane’s Favorite Fella”) in Reader Mail’s Clearance Denied:
Thanks, Diane. Yet, those few marginal accomplishments of Dubya (a few judges and a tax-cut or two, since manhandled a bit?) fail to make up for the very true sense of flat-out betrayal; we voted for a guy do stuff, and he did the opposite ‘way too many times. Sure, Bill Clinton was an ass, but, hey, we sure didn’t expect much. Dubya’s been an awful president, so very disappointing it’s sickening.
So far as our splitting for Costa Rica or Brazil (been to each a few times; Brazil is prosperous and free, like we were 40-50 years ago, before the Terminal Political Correctness set in), it certainly is 180-degrees from the reasons Alex Baldwin, Susan Sarandon and those other dippy nutcases gave. Simple preservation of one’s sanity, maybe? Perhaps if there were more Coburns, Palins, Goldwaters, DeMints and Ron Paul types around — but they’re so badly outnumbered by the whores, pandering opportunists and creeps, as we’re outnumbered by the apathetic, ill-educated, unmotivated and selfish parasites.
Would love to be my usual optimistic self, but I fear for our kids. And theirs.
A THOUSAND TIMES THANK YOU
Re: Judah Friedman’s Eugene the Veteran:
Thank you, Eugene and all veterans. Judah is 100% correct that in our backwards society the silly are revered while the honorable are treated too many times like Eugene. We must force the hands of our politicians to right this wrong-especially John McCain who himself has been in need of dire medical assistance! Thank you to Judah for sharing with us Eugene’s story.

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?
