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.

Party of hatred: I must confess that I don't watch Pat Robertson's "The 700 Club." Neither do I listen to Air America radio. Having made those two confessions, I find Sen. Tom Harkin's comments [last item] just as offensive and outrageous as anything Robertson or Falwell have ever said.

On the same program, Harkin said Christian broadcasters are "sort of our home-grown Taliban." He added: "They have a direct line to God. And if you don't tune into their line, you're obviously on Satan's line."

At the risk of playing to Harkin's stereotype, I say: "Sen. Harkin, go to hell."

Not literally, of course.

If Democrats really want to reach out to "values" voters, then people like Sen. Harkin need to take a long, hard look at themselves and think at least a dozen times before opening their traps.

With a party chairman like Howard "Republicans are evil" Dean, a Senate leader like Harry "loser" Reid and other assorted hatemongers, the Democrat Party is well on its way to permanent minority status.

Mr. Hoy,
I been reading your blog for a while and the tone of it has changed considerably since the last election. You sound like a partisan hack most of the time and your post regarding Harkin's comment is proof. Many of us middle of the road Republicans agree with Harkin's statement... and if you think that is as offensive as Robertson and Falwell you have lost it. Republicans like you have ditched your principles to take up the party line and agree with everything being said by the neocon/theocrats in this country. How about a little balance?
What kind of blog is this? Where is the blanace? You partisan hack, why can't you present your own thoughts in a balanced way?

Oh, you mean you actually are conservative? Didn't you say you work at a newspaper?

I am so confused.
Two morons...and one is "confused."

This is why the liberals are out of power except in places like Washington State, where they have to steal votes to win - their whole mode of thinking sucks.

(I just don't like being called a moron... but maybe thats because I don't blog and so I'm not used to it.)
