Mel's Lapse Into Extreme Stupidity

Yeah, yeah, everything's alleged at this point, but I'd say there's a 99% chance Gibson did what he was cited for by police.

Update: Wow. How incredibly sad, if this is true.

Update 2: Gibson apologizes.
Have You Forgotten?

A reminder, in case you have.

Ann Coulter: Snark Attack

The Unhinged Left usually deserve it, but Charlotte Allen is neither Unhinged nor a political leftist, so the 'tude AC gave to Charlotte in this interview was disappointing. (link via RelapsedCatholic)

How Many Like This Are in the CIA?

John Hinderaker at Powerline highlights recent public threats that former CIA employee and current DemonRat Party darling, Larry Johnson, made to conservative bloggers.

Of worthwhile note about Mr. Johnson is that immediately before 9/11 happened, he actually wrote in the New York Times that the threat of terrorism against Americans was declining! And yet, Johnson is apparently still viewed and hailed by the Dems as an "expert" on terrorism. Unbelievable.

Exhibit A of how to "fast" and still gain/not lose weight.

Disproportionate Propaganda

The MSM keeps on drinking up the terrorist Kool-Aid.
Muy Caliente!

It's around 9:00pm and according to The Weather Channel website, it's about 81 degrees with 61% humidity in the central OC area. Blech!
3rd Circuit Says L@p Dancing Not Protected Speech

At least not when there's booze around. More details here. No indication that there were any visual demonstrations.

John Yoo and Jim Chen

Two Americans of Asian descent who clerked for the great Justice Clarence Thomas and are now prominent university law professors (Yoo at Berkeley and Chen at the Univ. of Minnesota).

Obviously, these guys are really smart, but I gotta tell ya, John Yoo's writing is as dry as cardboard (see, e.g., The Powers of War and Peace, which I just started reading) and a lot of Jim Chen's stuff is a bit beyond the scope of my comprehension (science and math were never strong suits of mine).
The Strangest of Bedfellows

The ACLU is representing Fred Phelps and his Westboro Baptist Church (of "God Hates F@gs" fame) in a lawsuit against the State of Missouri over a law which restricts protesting at funerals. (link via Drudge)

The church and the Rev. Fred Phelps say God is allowing troops, coal miners and others to be killed because the United States tolerates gay men and lesbians.

Missouri lawmakers were spurred to action after members of the church protested in St. Joseph, Mo., last August at the funeral of Army Spec. Edward L. Myers.

The law bans picketing and protests "in front of or about" any location where a funeral is held, from an hour before it begins until an hour after it ends. Offenders can face fines and jail time.

Given the track record that the ACLU has with promoting g@y rights, I wonder if anyone is asking Phelps how he is allowing himself and his "church" to be represented by folks whom he obviously thinks are going to Hell. Now that would be something to see and hear.
Big Surprise: LA Times Runs Misleading Story...Again

Paul at Powerline notes how the LA Dog Tranier's July 3, 2006 story about the difficulty Mitt Romney would have if he ran for President in '08 isn't exactly truthful. Although I personally don't think I could support a Romney nomination, it wouldn't be because he's Morman.
That's a Rhetorical Question

I saw a spliced up clip on YouTube of a recent interview that Stephen Colbert did of Bart "Misquoting Jesus" Ehrman, and Colbert posed the following question to the self-admitted agnostic: "Isn't that [an agnostic] just an atheist without balls?" Classic.

Update: Here's the full interview from the Comedy Central website. I had trouble viewing it before with Mozilla, but it works with Explorer.
