    Dr. Jim Garrow, the author of The Pink Pagoda: One Man’s Quest to End Gendercide in China, made the following claim . ... I have just been informed by a former senior military leader that Obama is using a new “litmus test” in determining who will stay and who must go in his military leaders. Get ready to explode folks. “The new litmus test of leadership in the military is if they will fire on US citizens or not.” Those who will not are being removed. So, who is the source? Garrow replied: “The man who told me this is...

    We've all heard of the "litmus" tests people have put forth to gauge someones applicability to being a conservative. The problem is there are just too many options! The recent 10 point test is just too extensive, in fact I'm not sure I've ever met anyone who agrees with me on all my own my top ten conservative talking points. So let's focus it a bit. If there were 3 issues that we all could agree on as being essentially conservative, what would those be for you? It could include right to life, small government, low taxes, strong military, 2nd...

    Dispirited Democrats are doing what political losers usually do: self-flagellating. Foremost... is figuring out... how to reach those red-state voters?... • The issue is not getting evangelical Christian conservatives; they are to the Republican base what African-Americans are to Democrats. Rather, it is about getting a respectable share of the small-town and exurban working- and middle-class folks, many of them regular church-goers, who should be aligned more with Democrats on economics and health care. • The debate already is veering into false choices: Stick to principles and don't change because we're right or change your views on gays, guns, God...

    The Boston Fog ReportAn ongoing examination of John Kerry’s “nuances and shades of gray in both foreign and domestic policy.” (Editorial, “A Primary Endorsement,” The New York Times, 2/26/04)for·a·gainst adverb. 1. To be both for and against something at the same time: e.g. “I actually did vote for the $87 billion before I voted against it.” (Glen Johnson, “Kerry Blasts Bush On Protecting Troops,” The Boston Globe, 3/17/04) "John Kerry's reversal today on appointing pro-choice judges shows a startling lack of conviction on an issue that someone seeking the presidency should approach with principled clarity." -Steve Schmidt, Bush-Cheney '04...

    Senate Judiciary Chairman Orrin Hatch (R.-Utah) was quoted July 27 in the New York Times saying that "the left is trying to enforce an anti-religious litmus test" in which "nominees who openly adhere to Catholic and Baptist doctrines, as a matter of personal faith, are unqualified for the federal bench in the eyes of the liberal Washington interest groups." Hatch’s remarks appear to be part of a sustained strategy by Republicans. The idea is to expose Senate Democrats as religiously intolerant in light of their efforts to block a number of President Bush’s appellate court nominees who are either Catholic...

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Senate Democrats angrily denied charges of religious bigotry on Thursday as they blocked the nomination of Alabama Attorney General William Pryor, an anti-abortion Catholic, to a federal appeals court. During a stormy debate on the Senate floor, Democrats said they oppose Pryor not because of his faith but because of what they described as his extreme right-wing record on matters from civil rights to women's rights. On a 53-44 vote, Pryor's Republican backers fell seven short of the needed 60 to clear the way for a Senate confirmation vote on President Bush (news - web sites)'s nomination...
