heehee…..this is up on the Alito blog. Yep, not a second was wasted!
We always use Adam Sandler as an example of a Hollywood Republican, but Anderson’s take on Hollywood and Conservatives is very interesting…
We’ll that didn’t take long. Hopefully Alito or “Scalito” will be just the medicine to get the right back behind the party.
The anarchist groups that are protesting the Project Minutmen along the southern border are calling for the United States to “give back the southwestern states to Mexico”.
That reminds me of the protest that will be going on in Washington Square Park this Wednesday…..All of the typical left wing nutcase/anti america/against everything else groups will be “calling for the bush regime to leave iraq and resign from power in our own country”.
Do these people really think we’re suppose to say “okay, you’re right! we’ll leave ASAP.”??????
Since I’ve been counseled against using foul language in posts, I’ll suspend further comment on the unfolding Fitzgerald travesty. (save for this UGH aside: in his announcement, the prosecutor employed the dreadfully overused “At the end of the day…” Does anyone know how or why that phrasal tic came en vogue? Listen for it-get back to me.)
Belmont Racetrack and New York are very proud to host the 2005 Breeders’ Cup. 8 races, 8 champions-the Super Bowl for Thoroughbreds. Should be a great crowd and some amazing races.
For entertainment purposes only, my humble not-very-educated picks:
Juvenile Fillies- 1.Adieu 2.Folklore Longshot: Along the Sea
Juveniles- 1. Henny Hughes 2. First Samurai LS: Leo
Fillies and Mares Turf- 1.Film Maker 2. Wonder Again (even) Long(er) Shot:Karen’s Caper
Sprint- 1.Lost in the Fog
Mile- 1. Leroidesanimaux 2. Artie Schiller LS: Limehouse
Distaff- 1. Ashado 2. Sweet Symphony LS: Yolanda B Too
Turf- 1. Shakespeare 2. Better Talk Now LS: Ace
Classic- 1. Flower Alley 2. Saint Liam LS: Perfect Drift
Letting it ride…
Even though I’m a Republican and believe in the ability of this administration to run the country, I have to admit I’m disappointed at the result of Fitzgerald’s investigation and though I didn’t want to believe what was probably the obvious for some time, now all Republicans and I are forced to.
I’m left wondering why did certain people feel the need to even go down this path to begin with. Was Joe Wilson’s own vendetta against the President that damaging to a war that in my view was and still is justifiable for a number of reasons? It’s disappointing that smart men would allow their arrogance to takeover while running the greatest country in the world just to get back at someone who said something mean in a Time article.
Hopefully the rest of the world will take this as a lesson as to why America is so great and a model for the free world where those in leadership positions are not immune from the same laws that govern everyone else in the country.
Well, I’m only half-ashamed to admit that growing up I was among the last to discontinue writing Santa Claus-I think I stopped around the time my wish for a Gilette Sensor went unfulfilled. Anyway, until a couple of hours ago I had hope that the “straight arrow” prosecutor, the “Boy Scout” Patrick Fitzgerald was not going to indict anyone save perhaps either of the Wilson sickos. I mean, Fitz is such the consummate pro, his office does NOT leak we were told-then how did anybody know anything about anything here? And surely a good, serious man won’t go from putting Islamofascist murderers away to soiling himself with the follies of the Vanity Fair fools. But not to be, and now we’re to be bombarded with wall to wall coverage about the alleged not-really-misdeeds of a grown man named Scooter.
Not me. I’m out. Much much much more important things in life.
Breeders’ Cup picks to follow.

Libby Indicted on 5 counts (obstruction of justice, perjury).
I thought Bill Clinton had set a precedent that you could commit perjury and not get indicted.
I guess it all depends on what the definition of is is.

This popped into my email box, maybe you all got the same thing, too. Might be worth a look, though. This is straight from the press release:
Confronting Iraq: Conflict and Hope, a new version of Roger Aronoff’s intense documentary, will be launched at the Eureka International Film Festival in New York on October 28. The first version won the top prize for Documentary Features at the WorldFest Film Festival in Houston earlier this year.
In an attempt to set the record straight, this film examines some of the big issues related to the current war in Iraq. Did the US really act unilaterally, motivated by greed and politics, in an unnecessary war? Or is it a just and necessary war- part of a larger war- against the unrelenting forces of radical Islam and terrorism? Was Saddam Hussein’s regime bent on developing and proliferating weapons of mass destruction? Or had he destroyed them all after the first Gulf War? The West is engaged, whether it likes it or not, in a clash of civilizations, in a war it never sought. Confronting Iraq: Conflict and Hope also exposes the many inaccuracies found in Michael Moore’s Fahrenheit 911. See for yourself.
