THIS IS GETTING RIDICULOUS

By thisistwitchy  •  January 27, 2005 10:03 PM

Salon, not exactly my favorite publication, is now reporting that there’s a third conservative columnist who took money from the Bush administration without disclosing it. From Eric Boehlert: And three makes a trend. One day after President Bush ordered his Cabinet secretaries to stop hiring commentators to help promote administration initiatives, and one day after […]

TATTOO YOU

In Canada, six federal prisons are ignoring the safety concerns of security guards and setting up tax-subsidized tattoo parlors for convicts: Inmates will be trained to operate the tattoo services, which are designed to stem the spread of infectious diseases such as hepatitis C. Correctional Service Canada officials say prisoners have long used odd objects […]

STUPIDEST EXPLANATION FOR THE TSUNAMI. EVER.

By thisistwitchy  •  January 27, 2005 03:04 PM

It’s found in the letters page of today’s Rocky Mountain News. Put down your beverage: ‘A bad case of fleas’ The act of war deliberately and thoughtlessly wounds, poisons and handicaps the life-sustaining womb of all mankind.

WILBERT RIDEAU IS FREE, BUT DON’T REJOICE

By thisistwitchy  •  January 27, 2005 12:24 PM

Wilbert Rideau is a cause celebre among death penalty opponents, NAACP leaders, and the MSM. In 1961, he robbed a bank in Lake Charles, La., kidnapped three employees and made one of them drive the group to a remote spot. He shot all of them. Two survived.

WHAT’S A “BLOGBURST?”

By thisistwitchy  •  January 27, 2005 10:34 AM

It’s a “simultaneous, co-ordinated posting by a large group of webmasters and bloggers on a given topic,” according to Israpundit. Today, there’s a Blogburst on the liberation of Auschwitz. Amy Ridenour is a participant and you can learn more here. Terrific idea. Like this:Like Loading…

By thisistwitchy  •  January 27, 2005 12:09 AM

Voter fraud fiascos in Wisconsin and East St. Louis are now on top bloggers’ radar screen. Now, it’s time to turn the spotlight on the stink in Sacramento.

The Library of Congress has put an incredible online exhibit up on its site called the September 11, 2001, Documentary Project. Organized by the American Folklife Center, the project is modeled after a similar oral history compiled after Pearl Harbor called After the Day of Infamy. Both sites are must-read, bookmark-and-revisit-often. Among the drawings included […]

IS HE OR ISN’T HE?

By thisistwitchy  •  January 26, 2005 05:00 PM

Lots of readers want to know whether Juan Manuel Alvarez, the man being held in connection with the deadly Glendale commuter train derailment, is an illegal alien. I called the Glendale Police Department, which I’m sure has been swamped, and am waiting for a call back. I also talked to Los Angeles County Sheriff Lee […]

OFF THE RAILS

By thisistwitchy  •  January 26, 2005 02:52 PM

The deadly Glendale train derailment is one of today’s top stories. Randy Townley asks: Are we now seeing the new face of terrorism? Not in this specific case, but it’s certainly a concern in the wake of Madrid’s 3/11. Josh Lefkowitz and Lorenzo Vidino had an important article in The National Interest on train terror […]

JERKS IN JERSEY

I’m embarrassed to say I’m a Jersey girl. First this. Now, this. There is definitely something in the water (or as we south Jerseyans say: “wutter.”) Like this:Like Loading…

BLOGGING THE IRAQI ELECTIONS

Spirit of America, a wonderful humanitarian project started by Jim Hake after the 9/11 attacks, is organizing a network of Iraqi citizen bloggers who will offer on-the-ground coverage of the historic elections on Jan. 30.

ADVENTURES WITH AIRPORT SECURITY

By thisistwitchy  •  January 26, 2005 11:36 AM

Read this gun owner’s account of her dealings with federal homeland security officials in Seattle. A snippet: Once inside the police station I was taken to a small, windowless room with one chair and a steel bench. The faces of the officers I passed asked: “Is that the Gun Woman?” Three or four officers came […]

SO LET ME GET THIS STRAIGHT…

By thisistwitchy  •  January 26, 2005 11:24 AM

Just a glib thought on President Bush’s apparent willingness to use race as a factor in the Social Security reform debate: So, the Bush administration thinks it’s okay to use racial profiling to hand out government retirement benefits, but it’s not okay to use racial profiling to prevent terrorists from getting on planes? Crikey. Like […]

HOLDING OUR OWN SIDE TO A HIGHER STANDARD

By thisistwitchy  •  January 25, 2005 10:59 PM

You all know how I feel about the Bush administration’s media “pay-to-pander” scandal. (Go here and here and here for a refresher.) In two words: absolutely disgusted. When I first blogged about the Armstrong Williams payoff, I wrote this: Any other pundits who accepted money from the Bush administration, whether from the Education Department or […]

THUGS TARGET PEACEFUL PRO-LIFE DISPLAY

By thisistwitchy  •  January 25, 2005 05:12 PM

This hate crime at Louisiana State University–not to mention the cops’ lax attitude about the vandals–is outrageous: Outraged pro-life advocate Mary Higdon sat on the Parade Ground on Monday afternoon to guard the now-defaced tribute to aborted babies. Police recommended she get some kind of security to prevent further vandalism of her exhibit Like this:Like […]

HOLLYWOOD LOVES ILLEGAL ALIEN DRIVERS

By thisistwitchy  •  January 25, 2005 04:07 PM

Tinseltown is putting pressure on Calif. Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger to allow illegal aliens to obtain legal driver’s licenses. Blogger Lonewacko’s reaction is dead-on: Since these Hollywood stars have so much money, why are they unable to hire legal workers? Why do they want the rest of us to foot the economic and social costs of […]
