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.

I love P.J. O'Rourke: In a purely heterosexual sense, that is. Not that any of these would ever be used, but it would be hilarious. My favorites sayings as O'Rourke channels the George W. Bush that we would all like to hear:


(1) My opponent, Massachusetts senator John Kerry--or, as I like to think of him, Teddy Kennedy with a designated driver . . .

(5) You say health care costs are soaring? Well, I'm not the one with a personal injury lawyer on my ticket. I loved the billboards that John Edwards used to have all over North Carolina: "Y'ALL MIGHT HAVE GOT HURT AT WORK AND NOT EVEN KNOWN IT" and "FEELIN' POORLY? LEMME SUE YER DOCTOR!"

(9) You say I didn't have the answers in Iraq? Well, what were the questions? Was there this bad man? Was he running a bad country? That did bad things? Did it have a lot of oil money to do bad things with? Was it going to do more bad things? If those were the questions, was the answer "more time to let international sanctions and U.N. weapons inspections do their job"? No, the answer was blow the place to bits.

(10) You say I didn't have a plan for the post-war problem of Iraq? I say we blew the place to bits--what's the problem?

(11) Yes, blowing a place to bits leaves a mess behind. But it's a mess without a military to fight aggressive wars. A mess without the facilities to develop dangerous weapons. A mess that can't systematically kill, torture, and oppress millions of its own citizens. It's a mess with a message--don't mess with us!

I think this is the best point:

I have an 18 month old, and even he knows when I say, "Put that down, don't touch that, put that down right now, don't make me get up..." He doesn't have do anything... Except he does, I never have to say that much, because I've always gotten up and gone over there. He knows that they aren't idle threats and that he needs to obey, now.

For good or for ill, the world is now on notice. The Bush administration knows that their word should mean something. Kofi should be taking classes at the west wing, not lecturing from NY.
