Weekend in Review
Two key elections took place this past weekend, one in Afghanistan; one in Germany. In the former country, millions went to the polls despite Taliban death threats. In the latter, voters couldn't decide whether they want to leave the comfort of cradle to grave socialism in favor of a more robust capitalism... Hugo Chavez bashes US at the UN and then does it from the pulpit in a liberal church in the Bronx. In both places he was cheered.... NY Times urges Democrats to vote against Roberts, but the Washington Post disagrees.
The LA Times thinks that to say "Under God" in the Pledge of Allegiance is inappropriate, but the NY Times, amazingly, thinks it's no big deal... A popular Belgian rock band has a new Hate America song that's getting airplay on state radio. In Europe, you can vomit all the hate speech you want at America, but try to say anything negative about Islam and you might wake up dead.
It extends from global warming to the pledge issue. Even Bill Clinton says you have to be nuts to believe global warming caused Katrina, but, ironically, that's what his former VP, Al Gore, does believe. Leftists fear that if school kids say "under God" in the Pledge we'll become an Iranian-like theocracy; that the Patriot Act will deprive us of all liberties; that second hand smoke kills. The list goes on.
