Allen-Webb might be interesting, but I will hopefully read about it here, and get to watch FNS instead.

I wonder if they'll mention the Pontiff's remarks and the reaction to them.

Any "religion" whose adherents take to the streets in violent protest as a result of a cartoon, or the quoting of a 14th century Pope forfeits any claim to be an actual religion.

If Muslims have such a thin skin and react with vitriol at the slightest provocation, they ought to try being a Christian in America, where we are slandered and legislated against EVERY SINGLE DAY!!!!!!!!!!!

On this side of the Pond, I hope Allen mops the floor with Webb.

Thanks AB, Congrats to the top 3 & Good Morning to EveryOne!

Chris Wallace could learn a thing or two from Rush in interviewing guests, if he cares about ratings.

For those missed, here 's what Dr.Rice said to Rush: "Colin Powell is a private citizen. He can have his views, ......... It's my responsibility now to help defend the United States ". - It 's nice to have a LOYAL Sec.of State atlast.

IMO Allen has an opportunity here to put it high gear and just ROLL.

"This is who I am, this is what I stand for"

We could use a conservative juggernaut, gathering steam, connecting with the core of America and restoring pride and love-of-country among the masses.

FreeperNation "gets it", but something like this is what will mobilize the fence-sitters ala the Reagan Era.

Comments??????

We need to start a letter writing campaign pointing to Powell's dishonest behavior in regard to the Plame/Wilson fiasco and emphasizing how that totally disqualifies him from having any opinion on any issues of substance.  The man has no honor and his judgment obviously sucks, big time.

I'm writing my Senators, Frist and Alexander, my congresswoman, Blackburn, as well as the usual suspects in the media.  I think I'll include a few of the good Republicans in Congress, as well, such as Boehner, and a few talking heads, like Newt.  I'll suggest the theme to a few blogs, too, such as LGF and PowerLine.

And yet the DBM continues to refer to him as a front runner for the nomination. They really do live in their own fantasy world.

His base isn't in the Republican party.  It's in the media.  He's doing what he's doing to win them back after alienating them by backing Bush on several things the last 2 years.  If he has any hope of winning the Presidency he has to have them firmly behind him.  He can try to con the Republicans into nominating him once he has the press on his side and shilling for him.

He want to change the subject to save himself from embarrassment. President looked really angry when Powel was mentioned in the presser.

McCain, Graham, Specter, Levin. I don't see any opposing opinions. Nothing like stacking the deck.

The WH should quit playing nicey nice and come out and rain all over McCain's parade. He's my senator and I despise the SOB.

email I just sent to CNN Late Edition based on your post:

Will you comment on the fact that George Soros is a convicted felon (in France)?  Will you ask him how much he has been involved in the huge speculation that drove up the price of oil the first half of this year?  Will you ask him about the grotesque racism and antisemitism being pushed by organizations that he funds?  Or about the insane 9/11 conspiracy theories that those same organizations are promoting using his money?  Or how about the money embezzled by Air America (which he helped start up) from a charity organization?

Somehow I don't think so.  Please prove me wrong.

I certainly hope Boehner doesn't apologize. If he feels forced to say something he should say "I'll apologize the MINUTE the Democrats apologize for calling the president Hitler, a liar, etc."

Right! Graham is a big disappointment to me.
And McCain. Agreeing with Ted Kennedy again. Not healthy to do that and look for a Republican nomination for Prez.
Mitt Romney used McCain's opposition to bloody him up a bit on Friday.

Go Pats! Beat the Jets!!!!!!!!!!!!

Rush is right to question why the rats continually demagogue the war, he's been there. He knows what goes on and with his sources. He is the man of the hour always. Last Tuesday there was another man of the hour here is his story.

http://powerlineblog.com/

Major Eric Egland and his wife Ania appeared on CNN last Tuesday(see video at links on this site, his story is about half way down when you scroll) and gave a great account of why he supports the war and his take on what goes on in both Afghanistan and Iraq. The Major(who is a blogger) recently wrote the book "The Blog of War."
The Major found morale in Iraq, "sky high" as opposed to what the msmers report. He is a counter terrorist analyst and told of how the troops are actively helping Iraqis in creating schools, their social structure, building hospitals, along with many other avenues of rebuilding the war torn country.
He told of how the terrorists are PR masters but said little is said about how our night time efforts of taking out terror types night after night ever get reported. He's a true patriot and is ready to serve his country at a moments notice.
The major told a CNN interviewer named Betty last Tuesday of his three month internet romance with his wife Ania and how he proposed only three days after finally meeting her.
Their first son was born 10 days after Egland had returned from Iraq and his wife is now pregnant and expecting their second in Feb.
It was a heart warming "good news story" of a couple that are making a difference in a difficult war and Egland is proud that we "took the war to them" in Iraq and Afghanistan.
Check out the rest of powerline there is a bunch of other great stuff as well.

Wow! I didn't think I'd ever get in on the thread this early (it's 6:00AM here on the left coast).

Just starting the timmay show that begins with a narrative introduction of the two debaters George Allen and Jim Webb.

They pointed out Allen's political history and then lavished Webb's military experience. What a funny, mixed message! Do they not realize that they say "We don't care about substance as long as we look attractive?!"
