Knowing Friend & Foe

This editorial blurb in the Charleston (WV) Gazette should give one a good understanding as to which side of the Israeli-Hezbollah conflict the staff members are rooting for:
Editor & Publisher, a trade journal of American newspapers, says the U.S. press mostly has failed to report that the Israeli weapons currently shattering Lebanon were provided by America. But Arabs are well aware of this ugly fact — and hatred for America grows each time a civilian neighborhood is blasted by U.S.-made rockets, bombs and planes. [my emphasis] (link)

No ambiguity there.

Got Some Catchin' Up To Do

My guess is you folks over in Danville aren't going to see much of senate candidate Jim Webb in coming weeks. No sense in wasting his time trying to improve on this:
Poll shows Southside backs Allen
By Mac McLean, Danville Register & Bee staff writer

DANVILLE, Va. - The Lynchburg/Southside Virginia area was one of three regions where a majority of voters supported U.S. Sen. George Allen, R-Va., in his race against Democrat Jim Webb, according to a Mason-Dixon poll released Sunday.

The poll showed 52 percent of voters in this area supported Allen, 24 percent supported Webb and 24 percent were undecided. (

24% favor Webb. How pathetic is that.

It's over before it's even begun ...

Marching Toward Oblivion

Well, let's see.

We are fighting a war on terror around the world.
We have soldiers dying in Iraq.
Israel is fighting a two-front war that could lead to World War III.
The Iranians and the North Koreans are developing nuclear weapons.
We are racking up budget deficits like never before.
We are awash in illegal aliens.
The price of a barrel of oil is staying above $70.
Interest rates continue to climb.
Sales of houses are declining as the market softens.

Not to mention the looming chicken flu pandemic.

So what is the winning strategy for the Democrats in November? It seems they've settled on this:
Democrats see minimum wage, stem cells as hot issues
By Christina Bellantoni, The Washington Times

Democrats will spend August stumping on issues they say matter most to voters -- such as raising the minimum wage and funding stem-cell research -- as they scramble to try to regain control of the House or the Senate.

Some optimistic members of the minority party say a focus on middle-class matters could lead to Democrats' recapturing both chambers. (
Hot issues. Stem cells and the minimum wage.

Now you know why these geniuses have been out of power now for 20 years.
