A note on the Amazon ads: I've chosen to display current events titles in the Amazon box. Unfortunately, Amazon appears to promote a disproportionate number of angry-left books. I have no power over it at this time. Rest assured, I'm still a conservative.

Get a Waaaaaaaaaaahmbulance: The New York Times last week screwed up (yeah, I know this isn't news).


Thursday's New York Times misidentified GOP Senate candidate Pete Coors as a Ku Klux Klan member who murdered a black sharecropper.

The Coors campaign found the error "so outrageous it's kind of funny," said spokeswoman Cinamon Watson.

"It could have been worse," she joked. "Pete could have been identified as John Kerry."


Now, that little dig has some Democrats up in arms.


Chris Gates, chairman of the Colorado Democratic Party, demanded an apology. He said Democrats are "out there campaigning positively on the issues, and the Republicans can't help but resort to the lowest level of insult and name-calling."

Kerry spokesman Phil Singer said the comment was "the kind of thing people hate about politics."


Yeah, I remember how sensitive the Democrats were about name-calling when the NAACP was running ads in 2000 blaming George W. Bush for the dragging death of James Byrd in Texas.

Get a grip.
