    IRAN'S hardline President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad issued a new diatribe against arch foe Israel overnight saying that the Jewish state was "anti-Islamic in nature" and the result of European "ethnic cleansing.

"They have shot two targets with a single bullet, they have built a Jewish camp among the Islamic nations and got rid of the Jews from the whole of Europe. "The Zionist regime is a part of Europe,...

    They say a leopard can't change its spots. Can a one-time Klansman change his, umm, sheets? The way Sen. Robert Byrd (D-W. Va.) acted this week, it's fair to ask. Byrd was one of three Democratic senators who used a parliamentary maneuver to delay a full vote on the nomination of Condoleezza Rice to be the next secretary of state. Rice had been approved by the Senate Foreign Affairs Committee by an overwhelming 16-2 margin. The only "nay" votes were from sore-loser John Kerry and loony lefty Barbara Boxer (D-Calif.).
