The D’s don’t plan to go quietly this time. Wanna be like Arlen. Nothing new under the Mexican sun. Plus more.

Charlie put up a green, four foot high cut-out in the shape of Florida with a blue circle representing Lake Okeechobee. (The lake was erroneously located at about where Orlando is — the Lake is a hundred miles south, but geography is not something Charlie has mastered.) Charlie strode mightily into the chamber, his carefully dyed silver hair lacquered carefully in place, his George-Hamilton-orange-tan precisely sprayed on with hands high, palms out, signaling silence for the multitudes.
Charlie then pulled out his laser pointer and shot himself in the chest with it. Finally finding the range, he aimed it at Palm Beach (on the other side of the state) and announced that “Florida is green and beautiful. I want it to stay that way. Thank you.” And left.
It was a major speech and the only one Charlie ever gave within my hearing that was intelligible.
If Charlie is the future of the Republican Party, I’m staying
with the Libertarians.

I wish I could move to Florida just so I could vote against Crist in the senate primary. When will Republicans realize we do not need people like him, Specter, et al? When will the Republican National Committee and the senate caucus wake up and withdraw all support and privileges for their like?
It’s better that we should wander in the minority wilderness then to “reach out” across the aisle. This bipartisanship has delivered us a witch hunting socialist administration.

CULTURE OF SUFFERING
Re: Quin Hillyer’s Monstrously Anti-Life:
Thank you so much for your article. My thoughts about President
Obama are that when he spoke about abortion he wouldn’t want his
daughters to have to “suffer” through an unwanted
pregnancy. He would allow them to abort his own grandchildren.
There is definitely death in the White House not only for unborn
but for the country.

God bless you for writing this wonderful article!

PUTTING IT NICELY
Re: James M. Thunder’s The Destruction of Notre Dame:
You have missed the point. The point is 50,000,000 babies have
died in this country and the president chooses the supreme court
that decides this issue. Obama is a baby killer and has filled
his cabinet with baby killers. Notre Dame (Mother Mary) is
horrified. You should be outraged. Where are the campus protests,
where are the bishops, where is the clergy? Only a few “old
Catholics” seem to mind. God will not stand by, He will, and
soon, act. Prepare for the holocaust, there will no fence
sitting, you are either with God and His laws or you will perish
forever in Hell. There is no nice way to put it.

ONCE UPON A TIME IN MEXICO
Re: Peter Hannaford’s Mexico’s Half-Reported Drug War:
I grew up in Mexico. This war is no new thing, only the reporting
of it. Growing up in the wealthiest colonia, attending school
with the wealthiest people in the country, more than once I had
to hit the floor to avoid shots from a drive-by. Violence is
second nature to Mexicans, whether it be involved with drugs or
marriage. Forget it, close the borders and kick the illegals out
before they share more than Mexican food with us. (Too late, they
Somebody needs to clue in your clueless writer: There are no, repeat no, assault weapons at gun shows. Assault weapons are — manifestly unconstitutionally — heavily regulated, and require a $200 tax stamp, inter alii, to transfer.
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?
