CNN - busted!

I'm not saying it was done intentionally but the professional standards used in CNN's republican debate last night are appalling. It sounds like most of the questioners who stated that they were republicans, are actually now known to be democrats. On the one hand, this describes CNN's entire news network - where people claim to be independent reporters but usually slant the news toward the left. So you might ask, what's the big deal if it happens on most of the major news networks anyway?

The big deal is that if these people are claiming to be disgruntled republicans - if the idea is that people from the republican party are criticizing their own party - then it adds credibility. In addition it shows internal strife within the party. Either way, the idea is to make the party look worse than otherwise. At least when people like Dan Rather did it, we already knew he was a hard core democrat.

LIberal "Peace" Protesters Who Should Go to Jail

This is becoming all too typical. Liberals who espouse openness and peace have no problem with vandalism and violence when it serves their viewpoint. In Olympia, "war protesters" have decided that laws don't apply to them and are trying to shut down ports that ship equipment to the U.S. military. Michelle Malkin has more here.

Tale of Two Coups

There are two countries that are experiencing democratic protests against authoritarian rule - Pakistan and Venezuela. In Pakistan, Musharraf is trying to prevent extremists from taking control (or so he claims, which at least seems plausible). The result in a U.S. media (and State Department) that seems more willing to accept an Islamofascist democracy than a friendly dictatorship.

Meanwhile in Venezuela, Chavez has removed all opposition, handpicked the Court and made himself ruler for life. Yet there isn't a peep from the U.S. media about the huge demonstrations. I wonder why...

American Pilots: Bored in Iraq

According to Strategypage:

The decline in U.S. casualties over the past few months has been accompanied by a sharp decline in U.S. Air Force combat activity. The enemy is not there anymore. They are dead, fled or given up the violent life.

One F-16 squadron has been here for two months, and has made no (as in zero) attacks...The pilots are beginning to feel unneeded.

John Kerry is a Funny Man!

Al Qaeda Panicking?

Sounds like Al Qaeda is having its problems these days. First Osama came out and admitted that Al Qaeda is getting its collective butts kicked in Iraq (even though we all know there really is not connection between Iraq and Al Qaeda - never was, never will be). Now Zawahiri is whining about Qadaffi in Libya - and that by working with the US, he's really hurting the terrorist cause.

About the only ones who think Al Qaeda is winning are Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi.
