WorldNut Daily's Joseph Farah blasts Rick Warren for "embracing" the "evil" Obama by agreeing to give the invocation at Obama's inauguration.
Oh. And Bundy never shot a friend in the face while drunk. So score one for Ted.
No spin. No doubletalk. A cogent defense of his action — and one that shows a well-considered sense of justice. ("I thought he merited it.") Indeed, if justice is seeking to give each his due, one might say that Dick Cheney aspires to being a just man. And a thoughtful one, because he knows that justice is sometimes too harsh, and should be tempered by civility.And just to show he's bipartisan, Billy offers this oh-so irreverent thought on the Illinois Hair Helmet:
Blagojevich is even more terse: "I want to make money." And when an opportunity came along — a vacant Senate seat — he didn't sit around studying polls and consulting focus groups. He got to work. He knows — as Americans have always known — that the good things in life aren't free. As he put it eloquently in discussing the vacant Senate seat, "I've got this thing, and it's [expletive] golden, and, uh, uh, I'm just not giving it up for [expletive] nothing."So is this just li'l Billy's way of rubbing our noses in it by way of saying "look what utter shit I can submit to the Times and GET PAID FOR IT"? Or can we expect his next column to reflect on the underappreciated Human Resource Management Skills of Charlie Manson?
It's also nice, in this day and age, to see an example of family togetherness and marital harmony. Rod and his wife, Patti, seem to be in accord on so many things. For example, in a disinclination to turn the other cheek...
If we can forget for a minute that Mr. Dead-Girl-In-Office is a moron, lets take a look at what happened to Iceland, and perhaps we understand what happened in the US.
Well, at least Barack Obama hasn't invited him to speak at inauguration.
Once again we are seeing what I've called the "tipping point of evil" being played out by the Bush Administration on its way out the door; the rule that if an administration is heinous enough to reach that tipping point, the public will be simply beyond outrage and will have little stomach for accountability. Remember, however, after we are ALL scrambling for the scraps tossed us by those who caused this mess, just who it was that brought us there. And remind your conservative friends, too. Because I suspect they will be thinking Sarah Palin is the answer to all their problems.
From here, it looks like they're intent on creating more terrorists. Demolishing a village and ensuring kids don't get an education is a pretty good way of proving you're a right bunch of bastards.
Those are some awesome standards for that award, btw.
The National Crime Victimization Survey, based on projections from a national sample survey, says that at least 248,300 individuals were raped or sexually assaulted in 2007, up from 190,600 in 2005, the last year the survey was conducted. The study surveyed 73,600 individuals in 41,500 households. Among all violent crimes, domestic violence, rape, and sexual assault showed the largest increases.
