When your average moviegoer leaves the theater, he shrugs and says, ''Let's go eat.'' That's not an option available to Roger Ebert, who has to string it out for a few more paragraphs.
And a few more courses, apparently.

That being so, why shouldn't Santorum say what he said? More to the point, wouldn't it be worse if he felt he couldn't say what he said? It would surely be an odd comment on American democracy if the views of half the American people on a particular subject could not be expressed by a member of the United States Congress.
A pretty sad comment on the late Great United States. Freedom of speech is not freedom from speech.
Santorum, Bennett controversies much ado about nothing
Exactly! They are B.R.O.W.s Bad Republicans Of the Week

It is becoming imperative
that we find a way to clone Mark Steyn. Yes, I know he's young and healthy, but still, it's wise to be prepared. This man is the best and wittiest pundit of our day.

Layne may be on to something. There are some activities which, regardless of their legal status or any criminal record arising therefrom, leave a man diminished. When George Michael attacks Bush and Blair, I'm not interested in getting lessons in foreign policy from a guy who solicits sex in public toilets. Sorry about that, it doesn't mean he's incapable of making a cute video, but the men's-room sex pretty much rules him out of the geopolitical commentary game. Likewise, given Scott Ritter's run-ins with law enforcement apropos his fondness for teenage girls, I'm not inclined to listen to his views on Iraq. Every time he's on CNN huffing about the Bush administration, I picture him sitting in Burger King across the table from some pigtailed schoolgirl sharing a chocolate shake with two straws. Sorry, big boy, it's over.
ALBANY - Former UN weapons inspector Scott Ritter was secretly prosecuted in Albany County in 2001 after he was snared in an Internet sex sting operation, law enforcement sources told the Daily News .
< snip >
He was arrested by Colonie Police in June 2001 on a misdemeanor charge after he allegedly had a sexual discussion on the Internet with an undercover investigator he thought was an underage girl, law enforcement sources disclosed on condition of anonymity.
Show me tha money !
Scott Ritter was paid for his interest in a movie - $400,000. Some discussion on this article here on FR...

How did the leftist journos get actual figures for Bennett's gambling? Was it Terry Lenzner's secret police? Are the gangsters in Las Vegas going to see to it that the people responsible sleep with the fishes? Are they going to stop supporting RAT politicians like Harry Reid?
Thanks for the ping. Steyn's great.

They'd much rather he'd been caught on video smoking crack with a transsexual hooker.
In which case his writing career would be ruined, but at least he'd have the inside track to be elected mayor of Washington, D.C.
