NR’s Top Fifty Makes ABC

By on 5.25.06 | 6:23PM

Shet mah mouth. A 30-second feature story just appeared on the nationwide top of the hour ABC radio news report (6:00 p.m. EDT). Subject: National Review's article in the current issue on the top 50 conservative rock songs of all time. Congrats to the magazine and to John J. Miller.

There's a moral in here somewhere...

Dave: I only wish I knew what was going on in the White House. No vetoes, extraordinary pork in the budget, the war languishing and the immigration disaster being pushed through the Senate. I'm not ready to give up on President Bush. But I don't see why conservatives should line up with him on almost any issue. Almost, not quite.

Bush Seals Docs?

According to Breitbart's report President Bush ordered that the documents seized by the FBI in executing the search warrant of Rep. William Jefferson's office be sealed for 45 days. What the president is doing is baffling. Why is there even an issue of these documents being kept from investigators? Something is badly wrong here.

Outrage? Not So Much.

The Post is unmoved by Pelosi/Hastert protests. The editorial points out the extraordinary lengths to which the FBI went to protect congressioanl privilege in the search.

Also, Sen. John Warner, usually not one to shy from congressional groupthink, says Congress "should be treated no differently than the average citizen when it comes to criminal matters."

Diagnosis, please

I think there's something wrong with my hearing. Every time I hear someone say, "The FBI searched the offices of William Jefferson," my brain registers it as, "The FBI searched the offices of William Jefferson Clinton." Is anyone else suffering this malady?
