Oozing in Irony

At about the same time Rod Dreher announces his departure from the Catholic Church because of bad bishops comes this news item about the upcoming canonization of Blessed Mother Theodore Guerin. (link via relapsedcatholic)
Dem Contradictions on Child Molesting

It's outrageously bad when a congressional Republican might have been involved in it (though I don't believe Mark Foley has been accused of doing anything more than sending inappropriate and morally repugnant e-mails) but there's deafening silence when Dem enablers in Hollywood glorify it in film.

Glorified and Self Inflicted Elder Abuse

I just can't help thinking that's what the final(?) Rocky movie is basically about. What is he, like 60?

Well, Why Not?

Cindy Sheehan claims she is a finalist for the Nobel "Peace" Prize this year. For the non-unhinged, this would seem to be a joke, but given the sordid list of past Nobel recipients (e.g., Jimmy Carter, Yasser Arafat and Mikhail Gorbachev) I would not be surprised if it were true. (link via Drudge)
House Speaker Pelosi?


From a speech the ultra-left representative gave in 2003 (link via Hugh Hewitt):

The United States does not need a multi-billion-dollar national missile defense against the possibility of a nuclear-armed intercontinental ballistic missile.

Alec Says, "Blame Bush! Blame Bush!"

A moment of comic absurdity for an otherwise tragic accident.

Lawyer in the Pool!

I've gotta report to jury duty tomorrow and I'm hoping I either get on a jury panel fairly quickly or I'm let go early. In case you don't think the former is possible for a lawyer, think again. About four years ago, I was selected to be an alternate juror in a murder trial.
Bishop Brown: Religious/Spiritual Utilitarian

Some spot on analysis by Amy Welborn of the pastoral letter and DVD distributed by Bishop Brown throughout the Diocese of Orange (of which I reside).

Don't use the word(s) in the context of online discussion groups or forums if you don't have a clear understanding of what it means. You run the risk of looking stupid if you do.
Oatmeal Foreign Policy

Looks as though the Quakers have filched the Dem's talking points on possible NorK nukes (i.e., it's BushHitler's™ fault).

Update: Terrorist-loving Peanut Farmer Foreign Policy: Jimmah chimes in and jumps on the blame BushHitler™ bandwagon. (link via The Corner)

Catholic Heaven Rocks!

The Simpson-fied Jesus would agree.
Calling Tony Soprano

John Derbyshire over at National Review suggests the whole NorK nuke problem can be solved by having Kim Jong-Il whacked. Irresponsible? Maybe not.

Democrats: Predictably Contemptible

Yep, it's all BushHitler's™ fault that the NorKs might have nukes. Slick didn't have anything to do with it at all.
