Charles (of the Charleston Blog) has a fantastic article about the religious left. Sounds like socialism to me.
No need to view Osama’s upcoming tape. Don Surber knows exactly what Osama may say. Wait…haven’t I heard all this before?
Kathleen Parker has a fantastic article on Imus and Al Sharpton. “If the truth sets you free, we’re not quite born again yet.
“After more than a week of pandering, pontificating and supplicating in the wake of Don Imus’ firing by CBS and MSNBC, we’ve shed little light on the gleaming nugget buried deep within the rubble of rhetoric.
“Both are products of American emotions that are real and often legitimate. The same culture that created Sharpton also created Imus.”

Larry Messina gives the numbers of note for the 2007 session.
West Virginia Public Broadcasting has released a comical video of the Marsh Fork protesters being arrested for blocking the entrance to Governor’s private office. There is one part where a girl is screaming because she is being picked up by her arms, but refuses to simply walk with the officers and stop the pain. No wonder no one is listening to them.
I’ve made no apologies for my support of Rudy Giuliani – even though it has raised the eyebrows of some of my more conservative brethren. He is not doing as well as I hoped and is actually running under someone I liked at first glance, but thought would never make it, Mike Huckabee.
As Huckabee has slowly risen in the polls, so has the rancor against him. No, I’m not talking about CNN or any other liberal media titan; the most vitriolic of the attacks have come from Republican bluebloods.
I would really like to know why.
Any modest examination of Huckabee’s record reveals positions and statements that most in the party would disagree with. But it’s okay to oppose without bashing.
I have trouble with many of Huckabee’s proposals: a national ban on smoking and mandatory health care for children, to name two. He definitely has his warts, but so does Romney (who is too ready to say what people want to hear), McCain (who is too cozy with the liberals and moderates), and Rudy (who is has several disturbingly liberal policies).
Sep17 A recent case helps illustrate how the term “hate crimes” creates more problems than solutions.
It was impossible to escape last week’s news of a woman’s terrible ordeal of abduction, rape, abuse, and torture in Logan County. One can only imagine, and doesn’t want to, the fear and agony she endured.
Nov28 Today I officially entered my name as a Delegate supporting Rudy Giuliani in the West Virginia Republican State Convention. As a social conservative, the decision was not easy.
To be honest, my first choice was Mike Huckabee, but his chances of winning the primary, much less the general, are slim. Even now there are only 7 West Virginia Delegates supporting him.
Dec3 The fiasco CNN and YouTube hosted -- they called it a Republican debate -- was uninspired from beginning to end. The questioning was incredibly hostile and unenlightening in turns and basically followed the same line.
