John Kerry almost drowns in his sweat?

I know that speech was long, and he was sweating a lot, but, at least he managed to keep his nostrils above water.

Or maybe it is a rare blue whale?

Wow! Maybe there IS hope for those Bush-haters..

Tom Junod from Esquire has a very interesting read. It is long, but, worth it. Essentially, he is saying that as much as he hates to admit it, Bush might be right, and that even though he might not like the guy, we DO have something more important than everything else in front of us. I said as much when I bashed Bush for even letting stupid things get in the way of his message. I say it again, ALL OTHER ISSUES ARE TIED FOR A VERY DISTANT 2ND.

He gets exactly that:

"We were attacked three years ago, without warning or predicate event. The attack was not a gesture of heroic resistance nor the offshoot of some bright utopian resolve, but the very flower of a movement that delights in the potential for martyrdom expressed in the squalls of the newly born. It is a movement that is about death—that honors death, that loves death, that fetishizes death, that worships death, that seeks to accomplish death wherever it can, on a scale both intimate and global—and if it does not warrant the expenditure of what the self-important have taken to calling "blood and treasure," then what does? Slavery? Fascism? Genocide? Let's not flatter ourselves: If we do not find it within ourselves to identify the terrorism inspired by radical Islam as an unequivocal evil—and to pronounce ourselves morally superior to it—then we have lost the ability to identify any evil at all, and our democracy is not only diminished, it dissolves into the meaninglessness of privilege."

I wish more Bush-haters could see the same thing. I did, I never liked Blair.

Syrian Musician Update: Glorifies Terrorism in Latest Song

So maybe the 14 shady-acting musicians weren't actual terrorists, all travelling with expires visas, but, the lead singer sure does seem to support them.

'The song tells the story of a woman who mourned her son's death until she realized that "he died for a good cause and he should be glorified for what he did," '

Wonder if I can get the song on iTunes?

NASA Lies, People Die!

How can they spew such vile rhetoric?

"NASA spokesman Bill Johnson said the Kerry campaign asked that the pictures be taken of the senator's unusually up-close tour of the Discovery and that processing be expedited so reporters could have them."

When they already know that the Kerry campaign manager has found out the truth!

"Arguing that the photo of Kerry looking like a freaky blue-and-green shuttlecock sans feathers while on a tour of the John F. Kennedy Space Center in Cape Canaveral, Fla., was a "leaked photo," according to Kerry-Edwards campaign manager Mary Beth Cahill."

US Soldier who found Saddam is an Iraqi!

How great is this?!  Hard to believe it has taken this long for it to come out. 

Samir says, "I was like, 'I got him.'" We all reached him and pulled him out. And we say Saddam Hussein he looks really old. He looks disgusting." There was also anger. "You want to beat the crap out of him. He destroyed millions in Iraq. I'm one. I left my family 13 years ago because of him."  Saddam couldn't fight back, but he did speak out. "He called me a spy. He called me a traitor. I had to punch him in face. They had to hold me back. I got so angry I almost lost my mind. I didn't know what to do. Choke him to death. That's really not good enough."

I love it.  However, I'm sure he will soon be accused of torture by the peacenik terrorist apologists.  "More Abuse at Hands of  US Soldiers Surfaces" or some crap headline like that is soon to come out.

Why the US has won

The director of the Tour de France sums it up.  He may be talking about Lance Armstrong, but, it fits in world domination also. 

"It's an improvement in the method of approaching the Tour de France -- more professional, more rigorous, more methodical," race director Jean-Marie Leblanc said. "In a word, more American."

Americans just work harder.  That is why we win.  It isn't magic.

"Nothing to worry about folks, please return to your seats."

No, no one wants to kill us.  There is no threat posed by terrorists.  The War on Terror was a mistake and it is more important to give illegals drivers licenses.

This little tidbit offers so much 'feel good' warm and fuzzies about flying I get tingly...

"A second pilot said that, on one of his recent flights, an air marshal forced his way into the lavatory at the front of his plane after a man of Middle Eastern descent locked himself in for a long period. 

The marshal found the mirror had been removed and the man was attempting to break through the wall. The cockpit was on the other side. "

Wiz Bang digs deep and finds needle in haystack!

This is about as close to a 'smoking gun' as you can can get to validating the fight against terror and saying where the threat truly lies.  If anything, it encourages the President to go FURTHER and take a HARDER line.  Great job, Wiz.  Via Instapundit.

"It is not a position with which Americans can bargain or negotiate. With it there is no common ground—not even respect for life—on which to begin a dialogue. It can only be destroyed or utterly isolated."

But, sigh, the media that most of the sheeple read/follow will ignore/distort this and we will be subjected to watching more stories about the success of Michael Moore's propoganda while the movie crosses the $100 million mark.

Will the real 'Shady Seven' please stand up?

This has made the rounds of the blogosphere for the past few days, but, I resisted posting it until I could feel comfortable someone had gotten to the bottom of it.  I think someone has.

So, first, read this, and see how scared you might feel if it were you on that flight and how you feel the author reacted.  I know I felt she was justified in being scared.  Now, read this, and you can let your pulse come back to normal.  But, still, can't people be at least somewhat aware of their actions and have some compassion?  Yes, you are innocent until proven guilty, but, why do so many people insist on acting guilty?  They can't NOT realize they are making people feel uncomfortable.

I can see someone forcing the issue and making people confront their biases with something like interracial relationships or homosexuality.  But, why do it when people could fear for their lives?  I just don't get it.  In the above case, I just can't by the men had no idea they were scaring people.  Especially, since these guys are musicians.  It is part of the job of live performers to pay attention to their audience and see how they are being received.  Forcing people to feel scared can leave you dead.  Just because you may have done nothing wrong and be fully in the right, you will still be dead. 

Holey Moley!

US law students to draft new criminal code for the Maldives using Shari'a law.  Wonder if any of the U of Penn students would feel any remorse when people are killed for things like homosexuality or adultery because of a 'code' they helped write?  Can't imagine you would get the same feeling of pride as you would being the author of the Declaration of Independence or Constitution.

Kiwis hope new friendship with Hamas make them safer..

Yeah, that will work.  Right up until the terrorists have killed all those that actually stand up to them.  Then, their 'friends' will be next.  Don't they have Survivor in New Zealand?  Even those in the alliance eventually get voted off.

OK, so maybe I will have to rethink my position on "The Who"..

I love a lot of their music, but, just haven't been a huge fan of THEM actually singing it. I have always preferred covers of their music.

Well, Pete Townshend's recent post on his site about Michael Moore's F/911 shows he is not a lemming like most of the rest of the entertainers and I have to like someone who is not brainwashed by that loser/liar.

There is no such thing as liberal media bias!....

How can you possible ever think such a thing?!...Just because things like this and this pop up every day you shouldn't make such assumptions. hahahahahahaha....

'Religion of Peace' readies its next wave of pacificists

How quaint.

I guess the Phillipines have joined 'Team Appeasement"

Manila has caved, contacted the terrorists and said, it will pull out its troops "in response to your request"

Wow, that will show them how polite the infidels can be and that we mean no harm and want to live side by side w/ the Religion of Peace.

If only more countries would offer olive branches like this....then we could live in harmony with the freedom fighters...right up until they cut our heads off anyway.

Oh, so NOW you support the barrier?!..

Arab-Israeli comes to his senses after being injured himself in a recent bombing:

"A month ago I went to protest the fence," he said, referring to the barrier Israel is building in the West Bank. "Now I believe it can only strengthen us."

"These terrorists don't differentiate between Jews and Arabs, they just want to kill," he said, glass shards embedded in his leg, as his wife shook her head in disbelief at his political transformation.

U.S. Chamber of Commerce might endorse Bush?

Wow. This is interesting. I guess the business community is so scared about a possible Kerry-Edwards administration it is thinking of chucking neutrality and actually officially supporting W.

"U.S. Chamber of Commerce CEO Tom Donohue says the group, for the first time, might break with tradition and endorse a candidate: President Bush."

Has it been that long?

Howard Fineman on Kerry's VP pick:

"The senator from Massachusetts may want to surprise us all, but he is under no pressure — as Bush the Elder was in 1888 — to "go long" with his choice."

Oops! So sad.....not.

"BAGHDAD, Iraq - Insurgents fired rockets Friday in central Baghdad, hitting a hotel used by Westerners but setting their own van on fire. One man was wounded, hospital officials said."
