Yesterday on the car radio I heard Baltimore Orioles President for Baseball Operations Andy McPhail introduce his team’s new permanent manager, Dave Trembley. McPhail said he couldn’t of anyone “more deserving to lead the Baltimore Orioles in their future” and described Trembley as “someone who can be most effective for what this franchise needs at this time.” Whereupon, Trembley’s boys took the field a few hours later and and got creamed by the lowly Texas Rangers, 30-3. (Yes, that’s a football score, the biggest competitive wipeout since the Dream Team’s defeat of Angola in the ‘92 Olympics.) And it wasn’t even a road game. If, as McPhail suggested, the future is now, what will tomorrow bring? In such conditions, even life as a hard time emulating sports.
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.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
