Ted Kennedy’s passing. ACORN’s retreat. The shrinking church. A clunker of a government. Plus more.

If the healthcare proposal is bad, which it is, let’s dismantle it on the facts. Take it apart line by line with undisputable facts that leave no room for partisan bickering. Let’s avoid articles like this one that attack individuals and use peoples’ pasts as a way to dismantle their credibility. In poking Wallis repeatedly as being angry and condescending, even chauvinistic, the author falls into Wallis’s own frustrating trap. One can tell that the author is angry at Wallis because he is not fitting the wealthy, conservative right, whiteboy, family man image of the conservative churches. This betrayal by Wallis of the “proper” response of the church is evident. Couldn’t this whole article be put into quotes and used in a subtext of a liberal author’s similar rebuke of the right? Let’s stick to the facts. I find my interest peaked in the congressman from Oklahoma who is actively fighting against this horrible bill with true knowledge and understanding of the issues. While not a fan of Wallis or his politics, this article was equally disturbing.
Warmest personal regards.

Re: Patrick O’Hannigan’s Harry Potter, Crypto-Conservative:
It is absurd to compare Rowling with Tolkien in that Tolkien never wrote his books for children, whereas Rowling did.
And equally absurd is Smith’s assertion that the Potter books are “based on nothing.” They are based upon decidedly libertarian themes of freedom, courage, and the right to self-defense.
Your Founding Fathers would find little to grizzle about.

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?
