Nevermind, went up and hit...hit! :)

Ann

Hmmm


Hit on Hit (Will not be the last time! giggle)

What you want to do is hit and not run.

News you will not hear from the MSM:

Ecumenism in the skies of Baghdad [Michael Ledeen]

From Michael Yon:

Thanks and Praise. I photographed men and women, both Christians and Muslims, placing a cross atop the St. John's Church in Baghdad. They had taken the cross from storage and a man washed it before carrying it up to the dome. A Muslim man had invited the American soldiers from "Chosen" Company 2-12 Cavalry to the church, where I videotaped as Muslims and Christians worked and rejoiced at the reopening of St John's, an occasion all viewed as a sign of hope. The Iraqis asked me to convey a message of thanks to the American people. "Thank you, thank you," the people were saying. One man said, "Thank you for peace." Another man, a Muslim, said "All the people, all the people in Iraq, Muslim and Christian, is brother." The men and women were holding bells, and for the first time in memory freedom rang over the ravaged land between two rivers.

Ray Fisman in Slate partially explains attraction today. H/t Polipundit

Whattya bet Anglican Canon Andrew White had a hand in the cross raising in Baghdad. Before 1948 there were 100,000 Jews living in Baghdad; now a lot of them live in the same neighborhoods in Israel.

Every time I think of my brother over in Saigon typing messages for which sites to bomb and working 12 hour days and juxtapose it next to Early Out Kerry I want to throw up.
The new videos of Hillary shown to Blue Danube music remind me of the windsurfing ad against Kerry. Did ever such a fop run for President...oh i'm sorry i forgot about carter.

Sue

Everytime I hear "swiftboat" as a verb, I want to throw something. Why are we allowing those honorable men who spoke out against Kerry's hypocrisy to be used in this manner? Rise up, I say. Rise up and slay the verb.

Ann

Can not sleep, so I went to Lucianne.com and what a picture of the day!

Character Counts! Tell me what you think President Bush is thinking!

Who can follow in their footsteps?

Or more importantly, who could vote for a Clinton who says "its time to clean up the White House"?

Ann

The picture of the day is on Lucianne.com

The must read is on Americanthinker.com:

Bingo

Rise up, I say. Rise up and slay the verb.

History will ultimately define what it means to be "swiftboated"...not the agitated screeching of a leftist cabal whose iconic "hero" was exposed for the patent liar and fraud that he is. Until that judgement is rendered, sit back and enjoy the rhetorical show as the left rolls out one "faux-swiftboat" after another trying to emulate the credibility of the real McCoy.

It wasn't just co-incidental that the "Firefighter's Union" assault on Giuliani's candidacy was widely proclaimed by the left and its media minions as the "Second Coming of Swiftboat". Anyone heard frtom them lately?

Main Entry: swiftboat
Pronunciation: \ˈswift-ˌbōt\
Function: verb
Date: 2004

1: to bring devastating documentary evidence that a person is systematically lying, esp. when the people bringing forth the evidence are the person's colleagues during the incidents being lied about.
synonyms see "hoisted by one's own petard"
— swiftboat·er noun

A coupla years ago 'to swiftboat' was still used in two senses, the true one by conservatives, and the deluded one by progressives. Now, media has made the deluded one the commonly understood one. The irony will delight for decades.
==============================

Jane

Cathy,

I'm glad you posted that. I always wonder why someone (read Hillary) would admit to being swiftboated.

(Oh yeah to take the spotlight off her position on immigration)

Sue

Cathy,

As Kim said, the verb is being used to claim the person is being attacked with lies. I know better. You know better. But those who worship at the altar of Bill Clinton don't know better.

"May/June 1970 Kerry and Julia traveled to Paris, France and met with Madame Nguyen Thi Binh, the Foreign Minister of the Provisional Revolutionary Government of Vietnam (PRG),"

This begs the Joe Wilson question,why did the PRG want to bother meeting an obscure junior Naval officer.Same as Wilson ,who fixed it up.

Speaking of 'bringing it on' there was an interesting result in the Best Science Blog category, a tie between Steve McIntyre and Climate Audit, and Bad Astronomy Blog. A Supreme Judge awarded a tie to two competing Gods in the Machines.

I insist, in retrospect, Climateaudit.org will be judged to have been the most important blog of the early blogosphere. It will be obvious that it saved trillions of dollars, and untold suffering.

1. Wasn't there talk that the May '06 stuff might have been stimulated by Schacte wanting to weigh anchor and move on?

2. Easily the most symbolic, most revelatory, and most damning.

3. I believe the judgement of his peers that day was that the run down river was cowardice, particularly since everyone else clustered around the injured sailors in the water. Had there been AK-47 fire it would have been even more cowardly.

4. I believe this is where he hopes for redemption.

He'll be more likely to get it than the Gorebellied Fool, whose film will one day be retitled 'A Convenient Untruth' or 'An Inconvenient Truth, Part Dupe', H/t AnonwiffleQ&L99 for that last gem.

OT - you made the paper. Let me know if you want me to post a link.

"You know I sincerely doubt that JFKerry released all his records to the Boston Globe. I just don't think they could or would sit on what I suspect is in it."

Jane, this is the Boston Globe that published a column that said, "If Mary Jo Kopechne were still alive, she'd be 69 today and thanking Ted Kennedy for his work on seniors' benefits," remember?
