Post-Campaign Palin Ads

A group calling itself the Our Country Deserves Better PAC is airing ads that declare “Thank you Sarah Palin” for running for Vice President. This just shows how behind the times the Democrats are. If they had any sense, they’d be running the same ad themselves.

That Damn Liberal Internet

Here’s more absurd Bill O’Reilly blather: O’REILLY: A good case can be made there are more liberal voices in the media than conservative voices. The newspaper industry is certainly left. So is the Internet. NBC News almost completely liberal. So is PBS, so is NPR. The internet is just a means of communication. This is…

Fox News is Hiring

Chambliss’ Golf Handicap

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution has a report on Georgia Sen. Saxby Chambliss, who is facing a runoff election for his seat, and how he has run the Republican Majority Fund. This is the vile jerk who beat Max Cleland 6 years ago by running an ad comparing him to Osama Bin Laden, which led even John…

This time in Nigeria, where Pentecostal ministers who identify children as witches cause them to be tortured and killed by their own parents. Long excerpt below the fold:

And the AAAS is none too happy about it: The president of the nation’s largest general science organization yesterday sharply criticized recent cases of Bush administration political appointees gaining permanent federal jobs with responsibility for making or administering scientific policies, saying the result would be “to leave wreckage behind.” “It’s ludicrous to have people who…
