Asking and telling about Kagan. Getting MADDER. GLAAD about you. Mighty Quin. Ben Stein. Plus more.

2) FEDERAL BUREAUCRACY, specifically the Transportation Department, lusts to impose their notions of “uniformity” and “good government” upon all States in our Union. MADD offers a ‘moral’ cover for the centralizing socialists to do what they lust to do anyway: control people.
3) STATE TREASURIES seek ‘revenue’ from whatever sources they can derive. Everyone involved with them today knows that the criminal courts in general, and OWI cases in particular, have become little more than alternative tax collection systems. On the OWI issue, most States eagerly sign on to reduction of BAC because the lower the level the higher the prospect that “anyone and everyone” can get tabbed for drunkenness if stopped in public. Friends of mine who are policemen confirm the “revenue-generating” directives the government imposes upon them. All MADD does is provide feel-good political “cover” for the legislators to do what they want to do anyway.
Again, AFTM. Cui bono? For sure, not most of the 200 million
drivers of America.

Re: Jeffrey Lord’s GLAAD Strikes Out on Kagan:
Hi, I am writing on the following article.
I assume you acquired this information from the Politico article which quoted a “former spokesperson for the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation.”
Any other mention of GLAAD is inaccurate and should be corrected.
Also, it’s GLAAD not GLADD.
— Rich Ferraro
Director of Public Relations, GLAAD
Rich Ferraro is correct. Politico identified Cathy Renna as a “former” GLAAD spokesperson. Not current. I linked the article for accuracy and did so while seeing the pitch coming right over the plate. Alas, I took my eye off the ball and it was a broken bat single, not a homer. Suffice to say, I am not GLAAD.
Apologies for not playing ball. Hopefully Mr. Ferraro and GLAAD will be glad about the First Amendment and hit a grand slam by opposing Elena Kagan.

My son 1LT HANS BEUTEL is fighting in the area of Kandahar so there you have one name among many thousands prepared to give their lives for us.
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?
