Another Tight One

But the Trojans keep winning despite racking up injuries to key players.

Update: Dang! Dodgers were swept by the Mets. For some reason, I find the Mets incredibly more annoying than the Yankees. Probably has to do with the fact that the Dodgers, my favorite team, are in the National League.

This is kind of like calling a touchdown a home run (or vice versa).

Liberals and Lack of Self Awareness

There's something incredibly Naziesque about the Unhinged Left's latest attempt to prove that BushHitler™ exists. (link via The Anchoress).

A liberal government watchdog group has asked the Secret Service to release its records of prominent conservative Christian leaders' visits to the White House, but one of those leaders called the request "an act of Christianophobia."

Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW) filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request on Wednesday. The group said in the request that the records are "likely to contribute to the public's understanding of the influence that conservative Christian leaders have, or attempt to have, on the president in the exercise of his authority."

A Win for Marriage in the Courts

A California Court of Appeal upholds Prop. 22, aka California's Protection of Marriage Amendment.

Unfortunately, expect an appeal to the California State Supreme Court to be made.
Foley and Democrat Hypocrisy

Take it away Ann!

But now, the same Democrats who are incensed that Bush's National Security Agency was listening in on al-Qaida phone calls are incensed that Republicans were not reading a gay congressman's instant messages.

Let's run this past the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals: The suspect sent an inappropriately friendly e-mail to a teenager — oh also, we think he's gay. Can we spy on his instant messages? On a scale of 1 to 10, what are the odds that any court in the nation would have said: YOU BET! Put a tail on that guy — and a credit check, too!

When Republicans on the Senate Judiciary Committee found unprotected e-mails from the Democrats about their plan to oppose Miguel Estrada's judicial nomination because he was Hispanic, Democrats erupted in rage that their e-mails were being read. The Republican staffer responsible was forced to resign.

But Democrats are on their high horses because Republicans in the House did not immediately wiretap Foley's phones when they found out he was engaging in e-mail chitchat with a former page about what the kid wanted for his birthday.

The Democrats say the Republicans should have done all the things Democrats won't let us do to al-Qaida — solely because Foley was rumored to be gay. Maybe we could get Democrats to support the NSA wiretapping program if we tell them the terrorists are gay.

Getting It Right

It looks as though the U.S. 6th Circuit Court of Appeals will be correcting the egregiously incompetent and politicized ruling that Federal District Judge Anna Diggs Taylor, a Carter appointee, made on the constitutionality of the NSA surveillance program.

As an aside, when news of Judge Taylor's ruling was first reported in mid-August, noted legal and homeland security expert Mark Shea expressed his support for it on grounds and principles that have absolutely nothing to do with what the surveillance program is and how it functions. In other words, Shea didn't know what the hell he was talking about; at the same time, he gave public endorsement for the type of jurisprudence which produced rulings like Roe v. Wade.

Under the oh-so-clear "everyone knows what it is" standard professed by great legal minds like Mark Shea, there's absolutely no reason why this latest controversy on the handling of prisoners at Gitmo shouldn't be regarded as another example of Bush-sponsored torture.
Entrenched in Stupid

A leftist writer at Slate (yeah, I know, that's redundant) suggests Justice Scalia is racially insensitive because he equates tequila with Mexico. (link via Hot Air).

Update (10/5/06): I suppose this means Mexico is self-loathing.

Blog Changes

If you previously left a message to one of my postings here and don't see it anymore, I didn't erase it. Long story short, I accepted the invite from Blogger to try its' new beta program and the new blog template I made doesn't seem to let me use the Haloscan comboxes I had on my old blog template. If, or until, I ever figure out how to put the comboxes back, I'm just going to use the comment system provided by Blogger.
Random Thought of the Day

Physical exercise is a pain, but I do generally feel a lot better after doing it.
