McCaskill is the loathesome scumqueen who spit on the earpiece she handed to Mitt Romney.

"All the American bases in the region are within the reach of our weapons," said Mohammad Baqer Zolghadr, the deputy interior minister in charge of security issues. "If the United States attacked Iran, US interests would be in danger everywhere in the world," added Zolghadr, a former deputy chief of Iran's elite Revolutionary Guards.

    Lawyers for a former Poway High School student who was pulled out of class for wearing an anti-gay T-shirt have asked the U.S. Supreme Court to review an early ruling in the case. Papers filed yesterday by the Alliance Defense Fund urged the court to take up an April ruling by the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, which said high school administrators were justified when they removed Tyler Chase Harper from class. In 2004, Harper, then a sophomore, wore a shirt on which he wrote, “I will not accept what God has condemned,” and on the back, “Homosexuality is...

This glowing is especially noticeable during the various eclipses. At times the glow comes in the form of singular beams of light, but at other times entire craters full of shining can be seen from afar. For the longest time the initial cause of this anomaly could not be established. However, there have been attempts to catch a glimpse of these lights on camera. The first photograph was produced...

It was still unclear who was in the bunker at the time and what their fate was, but IDF sources said the bunker was totally destroyed and that all that was left was a crater. The IDF obtained intelligence information late Wednesday night that Hizbullah leaders possibly including Nasrallah had taken refuge inside the bunker.

    Bush’s giant Right Wing Noise Machine (RWNM) loves to preach about the Bush economic miracle. In fact, the RWNM’s current thinking is Bush doesn’t spend enough time talking about his economic triumphs. If only he did, then everyone would fall in line and believe in the great Bush economic miracle. There is one problem with this argument: it’s a lie. Any way you look at the Bush economy, it comes up short. Today, I want to compare Bush’s job creation record with other economic recoveries. As usual, Bush comes up way short.

    Conservative howling over Supreme Court nominee Harriet Miers echoes unabated since President Bush introduced his friend and confidant to the public on Oct. 3. If anything, the clamor has intensified, with some in the conservative chattering class now hounding Miers to withdraw. But while Bush dodges the brickbats, another critical element of the Republican political base is applauding from the wings. That would be big business. For the first time in more than three decades, corporate America could find itself with not one, but two, Supreme Court allies with in-the-trenches industry experience -- Miers and newly minted Chief Justice John...

Face the music. It's time you bite the bullet and go back to the drawing board to find something more cutting edge. No pennies for your thoughts, just better late than never because your beating a dead horse beyond the shadow of a doubt.

    Dear Mr. President, I never imagined a day would come when I would disavow a Republican President, but that day is here. With your selection of Harriet Miers today, you have betrayed your word, you have betrayed me and you have betrayed every social conservative who ever worked on your behalf. This was a historic opportunity for you to deliver on your campaign promises and finally give us a nominee in the vein of Antonin Scalia and Clarence Thomas. Instead you fumbled. We know Michael Luttig, Edith Hollan Jones, or Janice Rogers Brown are reliably conservative. We have no such...

    Americans are lobbying Congress so that they, too, might face Nicolai Yordanov's problem. A pig farmer who lives next to a military base in Novo Selo, Yordanov is leery about Pentagon plans to expand training at the post artillery range, which would bring hundreds of U.S. soldiers to his rundown village year after year. "We disapprove," he said. "We have animals here. Maybe we'll have nowhere to shepherd them." Farmers graze their cows, sheep and horses on the 90-square-mile range, herding their animals to other pastures when tanks, planes or cannon bombard the area. Whether the Americans would allow the...
