I see your elder senator has acquiesced to show himself, once again, this Sunday. I'm sure pearls of wisdom will cascade out his golden orifice this morning!

Dang RINO!

Good morning AB, and everyone. Congratulations to everyone for last week.

Happy New Year 2007? Or, I'm glad 2006 is over. I'm not sure which one applies more.

I wonder if anyone will bring up the Hajj today. Tracy at Antistrib.com posted the below:

Yes that’s right folks; it’s stampede time!

Will it be at the counterclockwise walk around the rock to turn back time? Will it be at the symbolic stoning ritual where all good Muslims throw rocks at a pillar representing women? Maybe the Wahabbi wing of the Sunni Muslims that run Saudi Arabia will open fire on the Shiites if they get uppity like in '87. We’ll just have to wait and see.

HAJJ DISASTERS

2006: 345 die in a crush during a stone-throwing ritual

2004: 251 trampled to death in stampede

2003: 14 are crushed to death

2001: 35 die in stampede

1998: At least 118 trampled to death

1997: 343 pilgrims die and 1,500 injured in fire

1994: 270 killed in stampede

1990: 1,426 pilgrims killed in tunnel leading to holy sites (crushed? Stampeded? Trampled?)

1987: 400 die as Saudi authorities confront pro-Iranian demonstration

Wishing EveryOne Happy & Prosperous New Year!

Here 's this sunday's Media Nuggets

###### Hillary Clinton building media-castle for 2008, placing her favs @ CBS - 1. CNN's Dr. Sanjay Gupta, who was her speech writer & policy-crafter & 2. Bill Clinton's pal & Lincoln bedroom guest Rick Kaplan.

###### "Weasel 61" & "Broomstick 11" - Soldiers' creative Code Naming! U.S. Army Captain Ben explains. Hillaryous! (Bagdad hotel balcony media made a judicious decision not to report this.)

###### MSNBC's Dan Abrams days are numbered? Time Magazine signs up Weekly Standard's Bill Kristol as "part-time contributor". ABC.Com signs up Hugh Hewitt as weekly contributor. Fox signs up Sean Hannity for Hannity's America show on sundays @ 9pm ET starting next sunday (H&C took the maximum ratings slide). Tiki Barber leaving FOX News to join ABC's Good Morning America.

###### MSM - Country on Wrong track. Nope. South & West track. Census Bureau 2006 state population estimates show that Arizona, Florida, Georgia, Nevada, Texas and Utah certain to gain at least one seat. Texas could pick up as many as 4 congressional seats; New York and Ohio could lose 2 seats. The South is rising again.

###### Gallop Poll MSM won't report - Even after all this BDS, President Bush is the Most Admired - Bill Clinton, Jimmy Carter, Colin Powell, John McCain, Al Gore all have to combine themselves to even match to President's level.

###### Christmas discount, MSM style! The Minneapolis Star Tribune Goes In A Half-Price Fire Sale.

###### Meanwhile, Baltimore Sun Reporters and employees - are nervous about their paper's future.

###### Reuterville or traitorville? - The Reuters Connection to Haditha.

###### Wash.Poster - Raised Standards for Post Obituaries Like what? - Dead reporters write obituaries (just read the last line). :-)

###### Newmedia surpasses Enemedia - US Surpasses 9-11 Deaths.

###### No Controlling authority! - AP and E&P: Perfect "Liars" Together.

###### “NYTimes Caught in Abortion-Promoting Whopper — Infanticide Portrayed as Abortion.” - NYTimes Ombudsman admits.

###### :-) - Woodward Releases Embargoed Chat with Saddam, in which the dictator questioned U.S. President George Bush's rationale for invading Iraq.

See U all in 2007!

Given your last media nugget, I suppose Russert has on Woodward to tell us all how evil Saddam thought Dubya was to invade his poor little country based on a lie.

No kidding, Woodward loves to "quote" dead men, since the can't refute what he has them say.

Fox News Sunday starts with a repeat of the report from Greg Palcott on Saddam's execution that I heard earlier on Fox and Friends.

Body was flown by US to the village where he was born.

One of the best web sites I checked last night was Atlas Shruggs. In one of their topics the sub head is "Students live as Muslims for 30 days." I am sick of trying to understand the muzzies, it's time they understood us.

Anyway Atlasshrugs had lots of great topics today,they include:

1. Great take on Saddam's hanging.
2. Some great links to those appeasers of Saddams hanging,look under blood thirsty dictator.
3.Hezbo-pay-per-slay--where the hezzies are getting paid thousands of bucks for successful rocket launches into Israel.
4.UK--Dirty hands--Muzzies refuse to wash their hands in hopsitals due to "alcohol" content in the hand wash(major bs alert here).
5. Students live as muzzies for 30 days.
6. Holy Shia--Babs Boxer recinds cair award:flying pigs moment!!
7. Assad pimps out Spectre(senility at work again?)
Its all here:

Lugar agrees that the Shias need to reach out to the Sunnis. Lugar says the Sunnis need their share of the oil and that this needs a political solution. He has limited confidence in the ability of Iraq to stand alone without help from surrounding countries.

Lugar says Maliki is under great pressure from the militias, and that we need to not give him arbotrary deadlines.

Diplomacy is important.

Lugar says we need to think about stability in the region. Lugar says he doesn't know whether he supports a surge in troops or not. Says asministration needs to take Congress seriously, and lately they have not. (Miss Marple agrees with the President...I don't take them seriously, either.)

Wanna bet Tim doesn't use Brokaw's statement about Nixon, "in the bunker" to equate with President Bush at this time?

Odds are he will tie it in.

Lugar wants a STUDY by Congress with meetings with the President BEFORE he addresses the nation. Says if he doesn't do this he can anticipate endless hearings.

Talks about enlisting Congress help before proceeding.

Lugar is living in lalaland. Like there won't be hearings anyway.

Lugar should shut up and support the President. What party are they both in?

There is nothing unsound in the request that the President has asked for, since it comes from the Generals in the field. Lugar is not in a position to question their judgement on the matter. Those that are are simply playing politics with the issue.

"Dick, the dems don't need any help attacking the administration. Your 'attempts' to sound fair have made you a laughingstock."

Well... well... well...

If ABC.com is going to have Hugh Hewitt, I'll watch or read it. The other people could very well increase ratings for the programs they are on. Hewitt wrote about this a bit ago, IIRC.

His staff must be on vacation.

What a totally stupid thing to say on camera. Perhaps this is an example of why Chuckie, Dick, Harry and Nancy are so giddy. They know how clueless our Republicans on the Capitol really are, and they are anticipating a free ride for the next two years to do whatever they will.

Lugar and Wallace are acting like this isn't what the generals want.

Vilsack on now saying we shouldn't look back and then proceeds to trash the White House for mistakes and not listening.

He is talking very fast.

One of your links above led me to the story of S.P.C.- J.R. Salzman a true lumberjack-man who has been featured on t.v. and is one of our brave soldiers in Iraq.

Dec. 21 he was injured by an I.E.D.
He has been undergoing surgery almost daily and is a remarkable young soldier who never gives up and is one of our men of steel now serving in Iraq.
His story is here at the blackfive site and his own, it choked my up bad.

Gag me with a spoon. Vilsack compares Kennedy's actions during the Cuban Missile cCrisis (working for peace) vs. Bush going to war in Iraq. ICK!

Wallace trying to pin Vilsack on whther he will take on Democrat special interests. Vilsack won't answer and is doing a tap dance about ANWR. HA!

I'm going to rest my hopes against this on two Republican Senators; Jeff Sessions and Mitch McConnell. I don't think they will roll over but could be wrong.

Then like I said, it's all politics. That's why Luger should be ashamed. He's a republican trashing a sitting Republican President over politics. Is it any wonder why the Republicans lost the Congress?

Lugar, you old senile fool, you lost your committee chair over backstabbing crap like this. You and Specter, Hagel, McCain, DeWine, and all the other DBM butt kissing idiots. Will you ever learn? Dems stick together. Is it asking too much for you to do the same?
