    Human Events ^ | 10/28/08 | D. R. Tucker
    Finally, I understand why people say that those who pass away at a young age died “too soon.” Prior to Monday, October 27, I would tell myself that those who died young simply passed away at their particular “time.” Even when someone passed away at an exceedingly young age—like the singer and actress Aaliyah Haughton, who perished in a plane crash in August 2001 at the age of 22—I’d rationalize it by saying that it was their time to go. I cannot do that anymore. At the very least, I cannot do that now. Dean Barnett is no longer with...

    Hugh Hewitt interviewed Governor Palin on his show today. It seems that the campaign got the "Free Sarah" memo from those on the right who wanted her to stop doing the stilted, edited, gotcha interviews with Gibson, Couric, et al., and let her be herself. She is great in this interview. She calls herself Joe Sixpack. On the blood-shooting-out-of-the-eyes hostility from the left. Oh, I think they’re just not used to someone coming in from the outside saying you know what? It’s time that normal Joe six-pack American is finally represented in the position of vice presidency, and I think...

    The McCain-Palin campaign finally did something its supporters have been calling for for weeks now — they unleashed Sarah Palin. She did an interview with Hugh Hewitt this evening. (Check; Hugh will replay it twice on his program. I appeared after Palin and was the first to analyze the Palin's answers. Short version - her first couple answers were a bit of the "generic talking point Sarah" we saw from the Gibson and Couric interviews. But she warmed up quickly. She mentioned that she and Todd had lost $20,000 in the past few weeks in their 401(k)s. Can you...

    Old Hugh Hewitt is apparently getting good intel (14 August FR Post "Military Coup in Mexico"). Powerful and influential senior Mexican General, General Segio Aponte Polito, was recently removed from his position as the 2nd Military District Commander (LA Times, 9 Aug). Unlike the US, Generals in Mexico don't get “resigned”..they play major roles in many power broker positions (and yes, until late, behind the scenes). The Mexican Military is fed up with not being able to control the spiraling arms race and increasing sophistication of the cartels. Expect to see Aponte in the future..and before the US election...Wait and...

    The relation between the federal government and the governments of the various states is a chestnut of constitutional theory, a perennial cause of angst and a gauge of American politics generally. In antebellum America, Southern states claimed the right to ignore federal law, presaging the Civil War. In the past century, Progressive arguments for the federal -- rather than the state -- regulation of labor set in motion the centralized administrative juggernaut that became Franklin Roosevelt's New Deal. More recently, the Rehnquist's Court's restrictions on federal authority, in favor of state autonomy, captured the Reagan Revolution's enthusiasm for decentralizing governmental...

    Barack Obama has proven a difficult target to hit—just ask Hillary Clinton. Opposition researchers, though, hope that they’ve found a weapon to wound Obama in his own voice as recorded for the Grammy Award-winning audio version of his 1995 memoir, “Dreams from My Father.” While candidates often have their own words turned against them in attack ads, it’s one thing to see past statements in bloc text and something else entirely to hear the same words in the office-seeker’s own voice.

I really never should have tuned in after his massively delusional 2000 and 2006 performances but sadly for me, I did. God help me if I ever listen to the schmuck again. He has managed to actually be less accurate than Dick Morris which says a lot.

Talk radio pioneer Rush Limbaugh said that if McCain or Mike Huckabee are nominated, "it's going to destroy the Republican Party." Mark Levin calls the senator "John McLame." On Monday, Laura Ingraham said she was "concerned about the mental stability of the McCain campaign" and had cuckoo-clock sound effects accompany his words. "Sen.

"Just win, baby," is Al Davis' memorable phrase, and the need to keep the White House in center-right hands during the war and as four to six Supreme Court vacancies looms matters more than any particular issue. The GOP voter who wants the best shot looks at McCain and Thompson and thinks "Bob Dole." They look at Huck and think "We'd lose 45 states, maybe more." They wonder where Rudy went and if he'll be back. In Iowa...

    As Republican primary campaign slogans go, "Endorsed by Frank Rich" might not be a candidate's strongest play. But for better or worse Mike Huckabee is essentially stuck with it after Rich's NYT's column of yesterday. The ostensible theme of "The Republicans Find Their Obama" is that Republican voters are leaning toward Huckabee for the same reason that Dems are trending to Obama: that both men are relatively young, speak across racial lines, are witty and avoid hyper-partisanship. But dig down a bit deeper, and it appears that Huckabee's real appeal for Rich is that, social issues aside, he is the...

There is the contest between Mitt Romney, Mike Huckabee, and Fred Thompson to be the conservative challenger to Rudy Giuliani. And then there is the contest between that challenger and the former New York City mayor. It is Rudy's hope that the race to be his opponent for the Republican nomination...

    Cancel the 2008 election. Fred Thompson will be our next president. OK, perhaps such announcements are premature. But based on campaign contributions from Johnson County residents, Republican candidate Thompson leads the pack by a wide margin. Johnson County voters donated $37,200 to Thompson’s campaign through Sept. 30, based on Federal Election Commission numbers recently released. Of that total, $34,600 came from Cleburne voters. See below for a breakdown of Johnson County residents’ donation amounts. “Thompson’s down to earth, has a lot of common sense, and there’s no phoniness about him,” said Cleburne resident David Murdoch, who gave money to the...

    As the phoney "phoney soldier" controversy swirled today --and Rush is in no hurry to end it as it reflects well on him and poorly on Senate Democrats-- Fred Thompson released a statemnt blasting the attack on Rush. Rush was discussing it today, and e-in-box began to fill up with complaints that Mitt Romney had abandoned Rush. I shot off a query to the Romney campaign: What is this all about? Not only did the campaign respond immediately, Governor Romney called the show to discuss the controversy and state that Rush has "got a long record of supporting our soldiers....

Stengel's column began: The invitation was on creamy stationery with fancy calligraphy: The Permanent Representative of the Islamic Republic of Iran "requests the pleasure" of my company to dine with H.E. Dr. Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. The dinner is at...

    The netroots is reveling in Chicago, and the natural reaction is to ask, “Where’s our YearlyKos?” It’s a good question, but ultimately a short-sighted one from an historical perspective.
