PS: I will still post just ...  well not quite as much till later in the week.

Reid out ... Dodd in?

I am not sure what these bloggers are talking about. Read the whole post. The Dems are happy with Harry Reid (why I have no idea) ... so there's a move to replace him with CHRIS DODD? Who comes up with this stuff? My head hurts.

Dick Durbin ... Speed Reader

Actually pretty funny. The Republicans complained they did not have enough time to go over that huge omnibus spending bill (stuffed with oink oink money for the Mass River Walk, Hillary' s Hippie Museum in Woodstock and others including Republicans).

So Dick "soldiers remind me of Hitler" Durbin told the Reps they had plenty of time.

My guess ... both parties probably had a pretty good idea of the contents anyway just not all the specifics they could exploit. More shame.

I wish I knew why they say things like this ... unfortunately ... I think I do.

The Dems making up Quotes?

I know I should not be surprised and yet ... I am.

Seems the Dem party is upset the Manchester Union Leader endorsed McCain ... so it sent out a press release from a UL article from a year ago that criticized McCain.

Only problem is ... there was no such article. These folks are shameful.

You Save The Planet!

I won't touch on this on the show but I am pretty tired of being lectured by people who use more energy in a week than I do in a year. I generally like Tom Friedman but now he's a global warming expert. Follow all the links at Powerline please.

Let's file this under "Good for thee not me"!

John Edwards has a love child?

He is very pretty but .... ok the best link on this will be Glenn at Instapundit ... one, he's a skeptic ... "Is it true? Hey, it's the Enquirer -- so it's as reliable as the New York Times" and two he will follow it better than I.

Time's Man of The Year

Because sometimes it takes a tyrant!

"TIME's Person of the Year is not and never has been an honor. It is not an endorsement. It is not a popularity contest. At its best, it is a clear-eyed recognition of the world as it is —for better or for worse. It is ultimately about leadership—bold, earth-changing leadership. Putin is not a boy scout. He is not a democrat in any way that the West would define it. He is not a paragon of free speech. He stands, above all, for stability—stability before freedom, stability before choice, stability in a country that has hardly seen it for a hundred years. "

OK now I get it ... sometimes civil liberties have to be curbed in a dangerous world.

Nice to see the VP get called on this.

OK ... I actually used to think that the Clinton family and Bush family were actually one in the same ... that they had some kind of deal going on ... you know Bush, Clinton, Bush, Clinton, Bush ... well you get the idea. But it was just one of those wild dreams. Crazy.

and then this? headlined at Drudge.

Naah ... couldn't be.

The Grass Is Always Greener

One more Powerline post ... I file this under my neighbor's lawn looks sooooooo green.

Powerline had the story. Combine this with stories of Christian persecution in some parts of Iraq and ongoing in Southeast Asia and with respect to Bill O'Reilly, the war on Christmas isn't just for Christmas anymore. I sense a trend.

When Good News IS Bad News

Instapundit points this out. Actually you would expect that online sales might not match the percentage growth from previous years. I would expect online sales increases would be greatest in its infancy and show slower increases overtime. But I could be wrong.

Bilingual is so overrated!

What do you call someone who speaks many languages? Bilingual.
What do you call someone who can't speak Dutch? Miss Belgium. Ha!

I know ... another beauty of a story ... but ... this one is really different. Bilingual is so overrated!

Go Joe!

Senator Lieberman certainly has the attention of conservative bloggers with his McCain endorsement. Powerline has some thoughts here ... and ... here.

A McCain/Lieberman ticket sure sounds interesting though ... or is it Lieberman/McCain.

Then again with the way things are going in Iraq now ... maybe nobody cares about an anti-terrror ticket.
