Must Be Something in the Vermont Water

Dem-speak is fun stuff. As noted by Ed Whelan, the term "anti-Catholic" to U.S. Senator Patrick Leahy (D-VT)apparently means one Catholic, i.e., judicial nominee Robert T. Conrad, criticizing another Catholic, a nun, for displaying contempt toward the Catholic Church.

On a side note, I wonder if Judge Conrad dared the nun he criticized to knock a battery off his shoulder. (Oh, like you weren't thinking that).

Good Gawd

There must be some adage about farting in the forest with nobody around that applies to this. (h/t)

At least Barr won't be running as, and isn't pretending to be, a Republican; unlike a certain Blame America First congressman from Texas who poses for pictures with and willingly takes campaign money from white supremacists.

Speaking of Stupid

Ted Turner is epically so.
I think that they're patriots [the Iraqi insurgents/terrorists] and that they don't like us because we've invaded their country and occupied it. I think if the Iraqis were in Washington, D.C., we'd be doing the same thing: we'd be bombing them too. Nobody wants to be invaded.
I actually heard an audio clip of this quote on the Laura Ingraham radio show this morning, and paraphrasing what one of Laura's producers said in response, Ted Turner is an inspiration for all the intellectually stupid people in this country who aspire to be a billionaire.

Reason 983232938 Why Most Academics are Plain Stupid

Looks as though there's some movement afoot to try and boot John Yoo off of the law school faculty at UC Berkeley over his authorship of the so-called "torture memo." This memo was written in 2002 while Professor Yoo was the Deputy Assistant Attorney General in the U.S. Department of Justice.

Setting aside the issue of whether certain authorized war time interrogation techniques that the U.S. employs, e.g. waterboarding, is "torture" under all circumstances (it's not, in my view), for these idiot academic leftists who most likely worship at the altar of killing babies in the womb, and probably defend the murderous rantings of Ward Churchill, to be suggesting that John Yoo should be fired from U.C. Berkeley for moral turpitude is beyond chutzpah. Indeed, it's just one more example which goes to prove that any freakin' moron can be a university professor.

Resurrecting the Dragon...In Song and Dance

Aside from the shock of seeing a Chuck Norris column on, I'm just bowled over at the news there are plans to create a Broadway musical on the life of Bruce Lee.

Just all the way around weird. (h/t)

Juuust a Bit High

Odds are that the few people in the crowd who felt the need to boo are BDS liberals. (h/t)

I saw the highlights of this inaugural game at Nationals Park, and as is usually the case for games I miss seeing on television, there was an exciting finish involving a game winning home run in the bottom of the 9th inning.

Paging Professor Kmiec

This quote from Obamessiah doesn't seem to be a real good indicator that he'd accommodate opposing, pro-life, points of view as President (h/t):
"Look, I got two daughters — 9 years old and 6 years old," he said. "I am going to teach them first about values and morals, but if they make a mistake, I don't want them punished with a baby. I don't want them punished with an STD at age 16, so it doesn't make sense to not give them information."


We may need to do a little more "crusading." (via Drudge)
