russert.h2I respected this journalist as someone that didn’t play favorites, did his homework, and made people from both parties squirm.

He will be missed:

WASHINGTON – Tim Russert, NBC News’ Washington bureau chief and the moderator of “Meet the Press,” died Friday after collapsing in the bureau, NBC News said Friday. He was 58.

It seems that very few people have an original idea– or if they are they are ridiculed.  The current thing that is “in vogue” is to bash the President and claim no association to him.

In a move reminiscent of Peter betraying Christ, Scott McClellan recently denounced the President’s lead up to the war, stating in a tell-all book that he had reservations about the entire thing.

XXL Undergarments Spark Hunt for Heavy Crooks

Starting off with a funny one, it appears there’s a bunch of crooks that are overweight.  The only question I have here is that, by laws of political correctness, will the police also have to stop an equal quantity of skinny people?

Just in time for the Hurricanes

Energizer has come up with a flashlight that takes any battery size.  That way you can raid remote controls or other objects to power your flashlights in a pinch.  The question that I have here is that if there is no power in the house, how will you find the remote control to harvest its batteries?  I don’t know about you, but I have enough trouble finding the remote when the lights are on!

In Praise of the Efficiency of Blogging

Nothing has done more to show just how effective blogging is than this latest flap with CBS. The fact that people in the know can check up or voice facts instantly, and be self correcting, makes even the Drudge Report seem slow. In this case with CBS, John Fund chronicles how blogging lawyers and handwriting experts have exposed these memos as false.

As if Typeface wasn’t enough

Still on this issue, Byron York talks about the differences between memos from Killian released from the White House and the ones from CBS. Discrepencies between the way the man signed his name and the letterhead. This issue doesn’t appear to be going away, and methinks it would be best for CBS to get out in front of this quickly!

Kerry’s Record

We cannot say enough about Kerry’s record, seeing as he does not say much about himself. Joseph Farah goes through a list of them, though he spends considerable time talking about the fact that Kerry is both pro abortion for any reason and anti death penalty. An interesting moral problem– kill the innocent, and let the guilty live. I’d like to see Kerry explain himself there.

Gov Cuomo is out of touch

And finally, Dick Morris (though a person of poor morals) defends President Bush and the Patriot Act and clearly shows how these two things (along with the terrific NYPD) were able to thwart more terrorist attacks in NYC.

It’s amazing the number of things that are being done that go unreported or unreported– only to be found online. And they wonder why we like finding our news here rather than waiting to see it on TV.
