Please Mr. President, Don't Back Down Now

Last year's election had me in knots, not in a small part because of the probable appointment of Supreme Court Nominees. President Bush's first pick was good but not great. I fully support the President and I think Chief Justice Roberts will be a solid judge, however, I don't want another pick like him. It has nothing to do with my confidence in Judge Roberts. As a matter of fact I am not against a Roberts-like pick, I just really want a more solidly conservative pick.

Now, it appears that part of what will motivate President Bush's pick will be gender and/or ethnicity. A large portion of the country is expecting a woman or a minority. That's great because there is a great pick who is both - Janice Rogers Brown. Maybe it's just that I was really looking for a fight with Chief Justice Rogers that never materialized. Such a fight would assuredly happen with a pick as staunchly conservative as Judge Brown. But reading what she has said has brought me to the conclusion that she is a wonderful pick.

My request to my president is that he stay strong and that he not worry about what the liberals have to say regarding his pick. You and Senator Kerry were both clear about the type of judges you would pick and the people made their choice.

Blunt Picked to Replace DeLay

U.S. Rep Roy Blunt was picked by Republicans to be the majority leader. Roy Blunt used to be the president of my Alma Mater, Southwest Baptist University.

Dan, It's Time to Go

I grow weary of Dan Rather. He simply cannot admit his mistake. Dan, it's over, the jury is in and you screwed up. It was not a conspiracy by conservative bloggers, the document has been proven false and you are a political hack.

Rathergate is why I love the internet. It used to be in the old days if you saw something on TV that you thought was kind of suspicious you pretty much thought to yourself "hmmm, that seems suspicious". Now you have a community of people out there checking facts. Mary Mapes sees the speed with which the Bush National Guard memo was debunked and immediately calls conspiracy. I see the same thing and call incompetence on her part. If the internet community could spot (and prove) a fake so quickly why couldn't her team. The fact is that they did spot the fake. Mapes and Rather decided to ignore it. After all, that is how things have worked for the liberal media over the last 50 years.

The blogging community has put the mouthpiece of liberal ideology on the run, and it's fun to watch.

Cindy: Havin' Fun

Check out the story of Cindy Sheehan getting arrested. The thing is she's smiling like a couple of hefty football players are helping her into her car.

Step 1: Be a part of a fake "anti-war" protest that is supposedly a peaceful march on the White House
Step 2: Do something that you know is going to get you arrested
Step 3: Profit

Through the years there have been many people who engaged in civil disobedience in order to bring about social change. These people knowingly put themselves in harm's way because they believed in something. Cindy is pretending to put herself in harms way because she is against somebody, namely President Bush.

Thank God people like Cindy are now in charge of the Democrats. It will make '06 a good year.
