Things that make you go...Uh-huh.

I doubt I'm the first blogger to note the stories that Rumsfeld may have been set up for "the question" by a reporter for the Chattanooga Times Free Press and three cooperating soldiers. (Drudge has it here [this link won't last long], WorldNet Daily here.)

Now the editor/publisher...

...of the Chattanooga [Tenn.] Times Free Press offered support late Thursday for his embedded reporter ...

Of course, there is the question about whether or not the email is legitimate, or is as much a figment of the imagination as CBS' Bush letters. We don't know that yet, but early returns suggest that there is some substance to the story.

But the bigger question is why the press would stoop so low. I can't answer that one with surety, but I think that they can't help themselves. They've been so indoctrinated to "Hate the US first" that they just can't help themselves. That's got to be a sad way to go through life, hating the place you live. I guess by extension, if you hate the place that gave you life, you have to hate the life it gave you. And that is sadder still.

Surprisingly, they constantly wonder why their newspapers don't sell and their ratings decline?

There's a question I can answer: We're not buying what they're selling.

Crime Control

(Via WorldNet Daily.)

A gas station clerk fought back when a suspect tried to rob her store.

And there's video. Woo-hoo! There's no happy ending--her aim was lacking, and the bad guy survives. But she won't be charged, so it's not a total loss.

Care to speculate on how much and for how long armed robberies decrease in that part of Ohio?

"...a day that shall live in Infamy..."

"Air Raid--Pearl Harbor! This Is No Drill!"

Not how the men of the Pacific Fleet planned on spending their Sunday morning.

Pearl Harbor was a life-changing day for many of our father's and grandfather's generation. You can read more about it here.

Please remember our fighting men and women, of all generations. The holidays are fast approaching. Here is one good way to help out the cause.

Rule 1: Drive Fast

The Capitalist Lion expounds on "How to drive in The Big City". I've never driven in New York City, but I've driven in a few other large places, and this sounds about right. Great fun to read, especially if you have done it before.

But a half inch "for safety"? Pluh-lease! Somebody will cut you off!
