Obama’s PR crew, at it again. School monitor. Langworth strikes back. Plus more.

Mark, thank you for this great article on President Bush. As a
lifelong Methodist from a long line of Methodists (ancestors were
organizing Methodist congregations as they came West in Ohio in
the early 1800’s and in Kansas in the 1850’s), I am embarrassed
and saddened that there was not a UMC in the DC area where
President and Mrs. Bush felt welcome. I hope they were sent a
copy of your article.

Re: Geoffrey Norman’s letter (under “Newsflash: Politicians Dissemble”) in Reader Mail’s Might As Well Have Said It:
I did not say Mr. Norman was a “neo-isolationist.” I said Churchill’s alleged remark that America should have stayed out of World War I was “a favorite of neo-isolationists over the years.” The point is not America’s entry into World War I, on which reasonable people can disagree. The point is: get your quotes right!
A frustration for students of Churchill is the plethora of
quotations ascribed to him which he never said, some of which he
specifically denied — like this one. Well, Mr. Norman
prevaricates, if he didn’t say it “he might as well have.”
There’s no way to answer such obfuscation. If someone wants to
believe the founder of the National Enquirer, despite
profuse evidence to the contrary, there’s nothing I can do to

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?
