Spygate Continued?

ESPN has been in contact with a videographer for the New England Patriots from 1998 to 2003 who may have more evidence in spygate ... or maybe not ... but it sure does not sound good.

"And now, Walsh, 31, an assistant golf pro on Maui, might be positioned to further pull back the curtain on the Patriots' taping history, expose where and how they gained advantages and, perhaps even, turn over video proof."

Normally I would say its none of government's business. But this is the league that demanded an exemption from anti trust regulations ... soooooooo ... ye reap what ye sew.

Are Republicans true believers ... or are they just trying to talk themselves into believing?
“There are people who don’t like the idea of a being off a campaign or being on the bad list if the guy gets into the White House,” Mr. Keene said. “This is a town in which 90 percent of the people balance their access and income on the one hand versus their principles on the other.”

The article is interesting in that it only voices what the rest of us have been voicing since John McCain began doing his best immitation of the Phoenix. (wow, that's ironic, eh?). If there is a theme it's that many Republicans are now pragmatic, or fatalistic which is a shame. Win or lose, I always thought our strength was our core and the courage to stand by our convictions. That sadly is not the case. A man who has suffered tremendously and displayed tremendous courage, John McCain is many things, but conservative to the core is not one of them. Actually, I'm not sure what his political core is.

Charlie Daniels Autographed Violin Up For Bid

Last month I brought New York Post columnist Col. Ralph Peters on the show to talk about The Returning Heroes Home project. Well God bless Ralph. The series was outstanding and is a must read.

Not only was I moved but so was my friend and loyal listener, syndicated cartoonist Guy Gilchrist.  Guy contacted his friend Country Music Legend Charlie Daniels who in turn put this great package together for auction on eBay. It will last just 10 days.

The items are described on the eBay site include:
  • Charlie Daniel's autographed student violin, 
  • Autographed "Charlie Daniels Live In Iraq" CD and DVD and poster
  • Autographed picture
  • Back stage passes to a Charlie Daniels' show in your area in 2008.

BIG NEWS!! Connie and Chris Hillman, Chris Hillman of The BYRDS, the Flying Burritos, etc, Rock and Roll Hall Of Famer, is so touched by this cause, they have pledged to this package to ADD an AUTOGRAPHED BYRDS BOXED SET to the winner. That's right. In addition to everything else in this now get THE BYRDS Boxed Set, the new one....autographed by Chris! Bid high, folks....God Bless You.

The goal of the project is to build a brand new "Warrior and Family Support Center", currently located at Fort Sam Houston. The center makes a profound contribution to the rehabilitation of America's seriously wounded Soldiers, Marines, Sailors, Airmen, National Guard Reservists and their loved ones. The new building will house returning wounded servicemen and women and their families during a very phyically and emotionally trying time.

McCain vs Romney

OK here is the Iraq timetable portion of the debate. I have linked to the quote as noted by National Review. I personally do not think Romney was calling for a timetable for withdrawal. He specifically uses timetables plural, so I buy it. I think Romney wins this round.

If you get the time scroll through Vodka Pundit's drunk live blog archive. I think he nails it.

Here's  a sample:

6:43pm Everybody has a plan for immigration. Paul wants a wall. Romney wants everybody to form a nice, orderly line back to the border. McCain wants you to ignore the man behind the curtain. And Huckabee wants whatever McCain or Romney wants, depending on who wins.

I guess its the "in" thing to do ... show them you care. I mean why else would even Ct Republicans offer a stimulus package. Read it here at CT Local Politics.

I do have a question though. What kind of stimulus can you possibly provide to the economy by giving folks $500 off their income tax bill? Honestly, really ... other than making people think you care and spending the surplus ... you might help pay this month's heating bill, or grocery bill ... but stimulus? Please!

While the troop buildup in Iraq has been successful in quashing violence in Iraq, it may also be hampering reconciliation, some analysts say. While the US working with Sunni tribes has helped to reduce violence, some analysts say it may also be one of the reasons blocking political reconciliation. Deborah Lutterbeck reports.

Rules? What Rules?

The Democratic Primary tonight was not much more than a beauty contest ... err ... sorry Mrs Clinton ... I mean, because Florida moved its primary date in front of Super Tuesday, Howard Dean punished the state by taking away its delegates.

All of the candidates agreed to respect that decision ... well sort of ... Here's Senator Clinton on MSNBC tonight with Keith Oby, (and the best part the hotel fire alarm goes off right a the interview starts. Can u say "Vast right wing conspiracy.").

Here's the AP's take:
Last year, the national party stripped Florida of its delegates as punishment for moving its primary ahead of Feb. 5 and the candidates pledged to bypass the state. At stake Tuesday were 185 delegates. Still, Clinton winked at that pledge, holding two closed fundraisers in recent days and scheduling a rally with supporters after the polls closed in Florida.

Here's more ... wink, wink, nod, nod.

Sen. Barack Obama easily won the African American vote in South Carolina, but to woo California Latinos, where he is running 3-to-1 behind rival Sen.

The End Of The Straight Talk Express

It really hurts to point this out .... Michelle Malkin is all over this.

Meet Jerry Perenchio. He’s a National Finance Co-Chair of the McCain 2008 campaign and the billionaire founder of Spanish-language media conglomerate, Univision. He also heads up a charitable foundation that has showered gobs of money on extremist green lobbying groups. Take open-borders zeal, add campaign finance hypocrisy, mix with eco-radicalism, and presto: The perfect, multiculti-profiteering McCain money buddy.

The Senator says he's for closed borders, but my guess is he's never moved off shamnisty. Illegals will get benefits you and I won't qualify for ... unlimited worker visa program ... etc etc etc

Congress + Pork + Gore = (insert flushing sound here)

This is just too much ... 

In November, the Democratic-led House spent about $89,000 on so-called carbon offsets. This purchase was supposed to cancel out greenhouse-gas emissions from House buildings -- including half of the U.S. Capitol -- by triggering an equal reduction in emissions elsewhere. Some of the money went to farmers in North Dakota, for tilling practices that keep carbon buried in the soil. But some farmers were already doing this, for other reasons, before the House paid a cent. Other funds went to Iowa, where a power plant had been temporarily rejiggered to burn more cleanly. But that test project had ended more than a year before the money arrived.

Not only did the Democrats pay for carbon offsets that offset nothing ... but they gave the money to one of their biggest political contributors. Somebody please ... stop it ... my side hurts .... bwahahahahahahhahahahah. No stop it really guys ... you're killin me.

"The Most Unbelievable Music Performance I have Ever Witnessed."

Last night in Atlanta I saw Cadillac Sky (Eddie's Attic). Even if I were not a fan I would be telling you this was the most amazing musical performance by a band I have ever seen. Ever. The audience, very few of whom knew who they were, were on their feet the entire performance ... a performance that lasted more than 3 hours ... no breaks.

The group is not "just" bluegrass ... in fact its hard to call it bluegrass. Last night they ventured into a number of different genres from Celtic folk to Jazz to modern classical, some of it reminding me of Bela Fleck. One piece in particular, written by Ross, teamed his violin with Bassist . An almost classical work, the harmonics were stunning. The rich slow base tones with a dissenent melody overlay by the violin. The harmonics were amazing. At one point I thought the base alone would bring down the speakers. Blue grass. No, I don't think so.

I was sitting next to three musicians, one being my brother, none of whom had heard them before. All said to me at one point during the night, "It is so rare to see musicians who take their music seriously."
I promise you, this group will be heard from.
