    A Mexico win would serve as convincing evidence that Mexico is once again the unquestioned leader in the region. It would also provide a confidence boost for a talented young team that could wind up ruling CONCACAF for the foreseeable future. And a United States win? If the US team can knock off Mexico’s Golden Boys, it would give the Americans their third Gold Cup title in four tournaments and continued bragging rights in a series they've dominated for the better part of a decade. It would also give the current US team a head start on Mexico as both...
  • Arnold Schwarzenegger can't be blamed for California's chronic mess

    Now that the tabloid feeding frenzy has abated somewhat, it's time for a cooler look at the furor over former Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger's fathering a child by one of his household workers. A few pundits have tried to make the connection between his marital betrayal and his failings as governor, but one has nothing to do with the other. Illicit sex involving political figures is nothing new and, as we know now, was rampant even among the nation's founders. More recently, we have seen scandals involving Bill Clinton, Eliot Spitzer, Strom Thurmond, Mark Sanford and John Edwards, to name but...

    Is Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger - the former bodybuilder and action hero - getting ready for the next big starring role in his larger-than-life political career? For Californians who read political tea leaves, some signs are starting to emerge: A few months ago, the Republican was on the campaign trail for presidential candidate John McCain, lambasting Barack Obama as a guy with "skinny legs," "scrawny little arms" and socialist ideas. On Thursday, there he was standing next to President Obama - hugging him and praising him as the nation's economic savior and reformer. The governor regularly dismisses talk of another political...

    GOV. ARNOLD SCHWARZENEGGER has rushed to the defense of some of the "girlie men" he once wanted booted from Sacramento. It's an indicator of how far the one-time backer of strict term limits has come in understanding Capitol dynamics and how badly he needs the cooperation of lawmakers to help carve out his legacy in his final three years in office. During the summer of 2004, the then-freshman governor, frustrated with the Legislature's failure to pass a budget, accused lawmakers of doing the bidding of unions and trial lawyers -- and encouraged voters to "terminate" their representatives at the polls...

    CALIFORNIA Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger, who once taunted Democrats as 'girlie men', called today for an end to partisan bickering and a focus on innovative centrist policies. In a elaborately staged inaugural that included singers breaking into choruses of "Hallelujah" right after he took the oath of office, Mr Schwarzenegger said California could serve as a model to the rest of the country and larger world. "At one time, the greatest public policy innovations came from liberals, such as during the New Deal," the Republican celebrity said. "Then the most innovative ideas came from conservatives, such as Ronald Reagan. "It is...

    SACRAMENTO -- It was just two years ago that California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger, angered by his inability to get right-wing bills through his state's Democratic-controlled legislature, termed that body's leaders -- Assembly Speaker Fabian Nunez and Sen. Don Perata -- "girlie men." This political neologism went over particularly big with a subgroup with which Arnold claimed a special rapport: Dumb Young White Guys. Deluded, perhaps, by the belief that the Census Bureau systematically undercounted the DYWGs, the Governator then spent all of last year campaigning against the Democrats and their institutional allies. Attempting an end run around the legislature, he...

The spark for the segment was the deal Arnold has worked out with the Dem-dominated legislature to cut carbon emissions 25% over the next 15 years. Co-host Kate Snow hailed it as "a bold move...

    Senate Democrats have scrapped a "good-faith" agreement they made two months ago to allow the Judiciary Committee to vote today on the Supreme Court nomination of Judge Samuel A. Alito Jr. "This is a new low in our confirmation process," said Sen. John Cornyn, Texas Republican. "Not only because it is virtually unprecedented, but also because it reflects a breach of trust." According to Judiciary Committee rules, either party can stall a nomination in committee for only one week, meaning that Judge Alito's nomination will likely be approved by the panel during an executive committee meeting next Tuesday. The entire...

    I am a conservative metrosexual. As most people know, a metrosexual is a heterosexual man who has good taste in art and music, and likes to pamper himself with nice clothes and expensive grooming. There's only one drawback: I can't stand much of the so-called common-man culture celebrated by the Right. I fully realized I'm a conservative metrosexual -- let's call me a metrocon for short -- a few weeks ago. The Gretchen Wilson song "Redneck Woman" came on the radio. This tune, a hard-charging boogie-woogie number, is a celebration of crude behavior, a kind of red-state aria of defiance...

    It was mid-July 2004. The constitutional deadline for enacting a state budget had passed a month earlier, and Arnold Schwarzenegger, eight months into his governorship, was squabbling with Democratic lawmakers over a spate of budget-related issues. Schwarzenegger was frustrated because he had, in his own mind, bent over backward to accommodate Democrats' demands for sparing health and welfare programs from severe cuts, even though the state faced a multibillion-dollar deficit. He had abandoned his initial demands for midyear spending reductions and then added $3 billion to his revised budget. In return, Schwarzenegger had sought concessions, such as making it easier...

    SACRAMENTO - Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger announced Wednesday that he will veto a bill seeking to allow gay marriages in California. Schwarzenegger said the legislation, given final approval Tuesday by lawmakers, would conflict with the intent of voters when they approved Proposition 22. That measure was put on the ballot in 2000 to prevent California from recognizing same-sex marriages performed elsewhere. "We cannot have a system where the people vote and the Legislature derails that vote," the governor's press secretary, Margita Thompson, said in a statement. "Out of respect for the will of the people, the governor will veto (the bill)."...

    The California Legislature on Tuesday became the first legislative body in the country to approve a bill allowing same-sex marriages, but the measure faces an uncertain future with Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger. There were loud cheers by gay-rights activists in the Assembly gallery as lawmakers voted 41-35 to approve the bill and send it to the governor. The Assembly had twice defeated similar legislation. A spokeswoman for the Republican governor said Schwarzenegger believes the issue should be decided by the courts, not by his signature on legislation. A state appellate court is considering appeals of a lower court ruling that overturned...

    British men are being told to be alert to a condition that could "put them on the fast track to extinction". Symptoms of the "illness" that has been dubbed "mantropy" include a penchant for pedicures, fruit smoothies and small dogs. American Maxim, one of the biggest-selling men's magazines in the world, has defined mantropy as "a silent killer which strikes men in the prime of life". The magazine has been urging American men to be macho rather than manicured and to indulge their passion for cars rather than clothes. The campaign coincides with research that shows that men and women...

As one liberal, Jonathan Chait, put the cliche in The New Republic: Bush is an "instinctive anti-intellectual" and his administration hostile to "fact-driven debate." In a favorable contrast, Clinton is "the former Rhodes scholar who relished academic debates." Showing his usual reverence for fact-checking, The New York Times' Paul Krugman says the Republican Party is "dominated by people who believe truth should be determined by revelation,...

    NEW YORK - Using a young readers' novel called "The Misfits" as its centerpiece, middle schools nationwide will participate in a "No Name-Calling Week" initiative starting Monday. The program, now in its second year, has the backing of groups from the Girl Scouts to Amnesty International but has also drawn complaints that it overemphasizes harassment of gay youths. The initiative was developed by the New York-based Gay, Lesbian & Straight Education Network, which seeks to ensure that schools safely accommodate students of all sexual orientations. GLSEN worked with James Howe, the openly gay author of "The Misfits" and many other...

The Tucson men, both 24, were arrested last night after throwing cream pies at author Ann Coulter during her speech at the University of Arizona.

The felony charge resulted from damage to a backdrop that school officials estimated at $3000. The pie provocateurs were booked into the Pima County Adult Detention Center--where the below mug shots were...

    After 16 year old Hanna Buckley proposed the slogan 'Young Republicans Aren't Girlie Men' for her club last month, Sean Bulson, principal of Bethesda High School shot it down.Decrying what she considers censorship, Hanna told us: 'I didnt think it was offensive to anybody. It's just a quote from Arnold!'Buslon, citing the school district 'human relations and anti discrimination policies' said he didn't want to give the term an official blessing.'The slogan struck me as insensitive at best,' he said.'In one way, it's anti-gay, and I'm certain I could find people that say it is anti female. I know there...

    According to Time magazine's latest poll, the president has retained the "seismic voter shift" he earned during the Republican convention. He continues to lead John Kerry by eleven points among likely voters. Kerry's support has eroded in every group, and "most notably among women," as Time points out. "In early August, females gave Kerry a sizable lead over Bush: 50 to 36 percent. Now, women favor Bush over Kerry by 45 to 44 percent. Even in Florida, Kerry's 22 percent lead among women has been halved in the last few weeks. In the last presidential election, Gore won women's votes...

    SACRAMENTO (AP) - Even as Congress allowed a federal ban on assault weapons to expire Monday, Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger signed legislation strengthening California laws restricting the sales of high-powered rifles. -snip- The signing of AB 50, by Assemblyman Paul Koretz, D-West Hollywood, bans the sale of .50-caliber BMG rifles. The move stands in sharp contrast to the decision of Republican leaders in Congress not to renew a 10-year-old federal ban on assault weapons. Gun control advocates say the measure makes California a national leader in improving public safety.

    If September 11 was not horrific enough or loud enough to wake the West, the explosion set off by the Islamist terrorists at a Russian schoolhouse, raining death on the most innocent among us, is the snooze alarm bell that most of the world doesn't deserve.     This latest outrage is ample evidence, of a kind repeated over and over, of how the enemy proposes to fight. Wishing it were not so won't help. In whose featherbeds have the girlie men from the salons of Europe and certain fashionable precincts in America been sleeping? The languages of the world, including Arabic,...

    "Only in an election year ruled by fiction could a sissy who used Daddy's connections to escape Vietnam turn an actual war hero into a girlie-man," writes Frank Rich in the "Arts" (!) section of the New York Times.So Frank Rich thinks George W. Bush is a sissy because he flew fighter jets in his youth. And what did Frank Rich do when he was younger? Why, he was a theater critic!Not that there's anything wrong with that!
