It’s a gorgeous day here–translucent blue skies, temp in the 70s, autumn leaves doing pirouettes across the lawn. Every tranquil fall morning like this reminds me of the morning of Sept. 11. My husband and I packed the kids in the double stroller and walked to the nearby elementary school to vote. We sang The […]
From the National Post: California liberals threaten to move to Canada if Bush wins. Let’s hope they keep their promises this time around.

My new column gives an overview of the campaign epidemic of anti-GOP hate spreading across the country. Here’s the intro: How many hate crime anecdotes does it take before the mainstream media spot a trend? If the victims are politically correct, all it takes is one or two. One alleged name-calling. A few alleged acts […]
Believe it or not, they’re out there. Here’s the scoop, buried in a Los Angeles Times article on homeless voter registration drives: On a recent overcast morning at a small park at 5th and San Julian streets, Burton and other volunteers attempted to entice the assembled men and women to register, using posters, loudspeakers and […]

Newsflash: President Bush Did Not Win Election on October 7
Unadulterated Dennis Miller on Jay Leno just minutes ago: That’s why I like Bush. He doesn’t over-think it. He wakes up every morning, jumps out of bed, lands on his two feet, scratches his balls, and says, “Let’s kill some f@#@$ing terrorists!” And the crowd applauded.

Colin McNickle, the man to whom Teresa Heinz Kerry hissed “Shove it,” writes about the death threats he has received. Also, he is still waiting for the o-pin-KNEE-o-nay-ted Teresa to answer his original question. Maybe he’d have better luck if he asked her in Portuguese, French, Italian, or Spanish.
