Vegetarian: An old Indian word for bad hunter.and
PETA stands for People Eating Tasty Animals.
Hunting season starts soon.
The netroots can't help themselves, of course: they've been well-conditioned by now to automatically hate all who oppose them, and they are woefully unaccustomed to having to be accountable for it. But don't get mad at them: they're just... unwell, really.It was a real mistake closing the mental hospitals. They might even have been able to help Michael Moore, with sufficient Thorazine.
We should all be proud of Governor Sarah Palin's historic nomination, and I congratulate her and Senator McCain.And if they win, guess who won't be too sorry as long as she isn't blamed?
We were thrilled by his speech in front of the Greek columns, which were conscientiously recycled from the concert, “Yanni, Live at the Acropolis.” We were honored by his pledge, that if elected president, he will serve at least four months before running for higher office.
We meet today to heal the divisions that have torn this country. For we are all one country and one American family, whether we are caring and thoughtful Democrats or hate-filled and war-crazed Republicans.
Obama’s support has declined in each of the last three individual nights of polling.That leaky rowboat I mentioned the other day seems to keep taking on water.
My colleagues in the national media are absolutely biased, in the tank supporting the Obama candidacy while claiming the mantle of objectivity. Whether they're in the front page of "The Washington Post," "The New York Times," whether it's any one of the news casts, I mean, it's ridiculous.

Ladies and gentleman, the coverage of Barack Obama was embarrassing.
MSNBC was the official network of the Obama campaign.
This looks like a step backward for Obama, who had a 51 to 44 percent advantage last month. Even last week, just before his choice of Joe Biden as his running mate became known, most polls tended to show Obama with a single-digit advantage over McCain.
This Gallup Poll reports the two tied at 45% each, again there is no bounce.
Oh, my, what can the matter be?
As a vice presidential choice, in short, Mr. Biden is not unlike Governor George W. Bush's selection in 2000 of Dick Cheney as a reassuring counselor on national security. If the angry liberal Netroots don't like that analogy, so much the better for the country.
Barack Obama accidentally introduced his running mate Joe Biden as the next president of the United States Saturday.Democrats have viewed my WY neighbor Dick Cheney and his boss as devils incarnate. Who would have thought they would select a nominee pair who resemble them in so many ways.
Obama praises the "vastly superior" infrastructure of China. Again, off-prompter means over the cliff with Senator Empty Suit. Central planning and near-slave labor can accomplish such wonderful things!
This is confusing to many pundits, who don't understand why a far-left, first-term Senator with dodgy mates, no policies, a profound humour deficit and a habit of committing astonishing gaffes isn't in front by 20 points.Don't hold back, Tim, tell us what you really feel.
Global temperatures vary annually according to natural cycles.
McCain led Obama 47 percent to 46 percent in a nationwide matchup in the new George Washington University Battleground poll published on Wednesday.
Like the old carney says, "You pays your money and takes your choice." Today it appears to me that Obama is sinking slowly like a rowboat with a small leak.
A supporter told him that he was sure to "get the vote of every thinking man" in the U.S., to which Stevenson is said to have replied, "Thank you, but I need a majority to win."On the other hand, Eisenhower was associated in people's minds with military success, as is McCain. Eisenhower beat Stevenson twice, handily. Stevenson never came close to that needed majority. We'll see whether my preferred model predicts November's outcome.
We are a culture of action, of rebellion, of instinct. When Europeans or American liberals deride a George W. Bush or a Reagan as a "cowboy," they think they are hurling an insult. Yet most Americans see cowboys as heroes, so the insult effectively backfires.Then he concludes with respect to the upcoming election:
You have to read the whole article to understand what he means by his references to Batman and Rush Limbaugh.
What will Americans be voting for in 2008? The same thing they have been voting for routinely in every election since the beginning of American presidential elections. They want action. A willingness to risk. They want someone who doesn't give a damn what others think. They want Batman. They want Rush. So they will elect McCain.
Americans, not long ago, rightly threw Republican bums out of Congress only to have them replaced by Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid, two of the most ineffective political leaders in the memory of the republic.
You were given the choice between war and dishonour. You chose dishonour and you will have war.This is particularly relevant to our choices with respect to Russia in Georgia.
Democrat Barack Obama has had about a 3 to 1 advantage over Republican John McCain in Post Page 1 stories since Obama became his party's presumptive nominee June 4. Obama has generated a lot of news by being the first African American nominee, and he is less well known than McCain -- and therefore there's more to report on. But the disparity is so wide that it doesn't look good.
Okay, guys, you've admitted the problem. Can you stomach correcting the deficiency and leveling the playing field? If not, you can no longer claim moral superiority over Fox News which you claim is biased.
To hear the crowd at Saddleback Church tell it, Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., definitely had a good night.And Tapper concludes:
(I)t was one of the best -- if not the very best -- of McCain's speaking performances in this election cycle.
Meanwhile, Byron York, the National Review's White House correspondent opined
McCain was the clear winner of the night.
Newsbusters' summary of the left-wing blogosphere's reactions can be seen in the title of their piece:
Leftwing Blogosphere Disappointed in Obama Saddleback Forum Performance
Reading some of their negative gleanings from Daily Kos and Democratice Underground might be worth your time.McCain certainly picked the correct venue at which to have a good night; conservative Christians are a key Republican constituency.
It shouldn't be this way...with the slowing economy, Democrats should be running away.
But they look weak on a military crisis.
Inconsistent on an economic crisis.
And impotent on their own brewing political convention crisis.
Things change. Tides ebb and flow.
But I think we will look back to this week in August as the time the party that had it all in the bag...just puked in it.
Since early June when Obama clinched the nomination, he has averaged a three percentage point advantage over McCain in Gallup Poll Daily tracking.
We have cards. We should play them. Much is at stake.
According to rumors, John McCain and Barack Obama are trying to get Angelina Jolie's endorsement for the campaign. And John Edwards is just trying to get her number.
Any soldier above the grade of private can tell you that there's absolutely no way Moscow could've launched this huge ground, air and sea offensive in an instantaneous "response" to alleged Georgian actions.
Russian tanks, heavy artillery, strategic bombers, ballistic missiles and a naval blockade batter a European nation. We are not past such things after all. The end of history will be postponed, again.
A new survey of corporate executives considering relocating their firms provides fresh reasons to worry about California's economy. The Development Counsellors International survey found CEOs ranked California dead-last in attractiveness among the 50 states because of its high taxes and business-hobbling regulations.
Will the last employer leaving CALIFORNIA turn out the lights?
Taking in my opponent's performances is a little like watching a big summer blockbuster, and an hour in, realizing that all the best scenes were in the trailer you saw last fall.
The (National) Enquirer went with the story, and when no major newspaper or broadcast outlet even reported the existence of the tabloid story, bloggers and online commentators redoubled their demands that the mainstream media explain their silence.
With that (Edwards) admission, the illusion that traditional print and broadcast news organizations can establish the limits of acceptable political journalism joined the passenger pigeon on the roster of extinct Americana.
America is, uh, is no longer, uh, what it could be, what it once was. And I say to myself, 'I don’t want that future for my children.'
Obama's verdict -- delivered in a few words to a very young American -- is that America has gone radically wrong. And that it will require radical change.
Let's take Obama at his word to a child: If he is elected, Obama sees his job as reshaping America in a fundamental way. In a radical way.Politicians say a lot of things, many off the cuff as this was. I suspect Hewitt has read too much into this comment, what do you think?
It’s a 7-year-old, senator. Ya tell her, ‘because you love the country.’ You tell her because this is the greatest place on Earth -- that we’ve got challenges, but you want to help the country through it. You don’t tell a seven-year-old that her country isn’t what it once was. You do not lie to 7-year-olds and tell them that your country sucks. You just don’t do it, Senator
The majority of the roughly 70,000 people living in South Ossetia are ethnically distinct from Georgians. They say they were forcibly absorbed into Georgia under Soviet rule and now want to exercise their right to self-determination.
By comparison, the facility at Guantanamo Bay is a beach resort.
With Election Day still three months away, 48 percent said they’re hearing too much about the Democratic candidate, according to a poll released Wednesday by the nonpartisan Pew Research Center. Just 26 percent said the same about his Republican rival, John McCain.
At the same time, nearly four in 10 said they’ve been hearing too little about McCain — about four times the number who said so about Obama.
4. If you're in favor of drilling for oil and building nuclear power plants you...may be a racist.
7. If your pastor is nothing like Rev. Wright or Father Pfleger you... may be a racist
21. If your grandmother isn't a "typical white person" you...may be a racist.
On Sunday, the nation is scheduled to vote on a referendum on whether to recall Morales, his vice president and nearly all of the regional leaders, known as prefects.
It's about culture in the end. In its escalating dysfunction Belgium demonstrates the inextricable link between culture and nationhood.
A language is a culture. In Belgium the two cultures know very little about each other because they speak different languages. There are singers known in one part, not in the other. Television is different, newspapers, books.
Belgian Prime Minister Yves Leterme offered to resign last month, saying that the "federal consensus model has reached its limits," and that he couldn't bring harmony to the country's Flemish and French-speaking regions, raising the specter that this nation of 10.4 million might split up for good.
The Democrats now have a 7.6 percentage point advantage over the Republicans, down from a 9.5 percentage point advantage in June and 10.1 percentage points in May.
Government statistics indicate that two-thirds of the overall voting population is overweight and almost a third is obese.
One can never be too thin or too rich.
He who is not a Socialist at 19, has no heart. He who is still a Socialist at 30, has no brain.
Measured against his party's surging strength in every region and at every level, he is dramatically underperforming.
Swift and sweeping changes are almost always calamitous consequences of calamities — often of wars, sometimes of people determined to "remake the world."
Wise voters...hanker for candidates whose principal promise is that they will do their best to muddle through without breaking too much crockery.
This suggests that the recent surge in voter support for Obama has truly subsided.
