Wednesday's notes & links
This would be great news if he was being honest. In addition to promising to lose the war on terror if Democrats gain control of Congress, Charlie Rangel gives us another reason to vote Republican.
Charles Rangel, the dean of New York's congressional delegation, said yesterday he'd resign his seat if Democrats don't take control of the House in November.Rangel is one of those most responsible for poisoning the political atmosphere in DC so his departure would definitely be a good thing regardless of his replacement.
In a column titled "Jimmy Carter: A Terrorist's Best Friend," Frontpage Magazine explains the difference between Jimmy Carter and Mel Gibson.
The anti-Israeli bias in Jimmy CarterÂs op-ed in yesterdayÂs Washington Post could not have been more evident if he had concluded, ÂAllahu akhbar!Â Unlike Mel Gibson, Carter presumably wrote while sober, but his analysis and demonology barely differed for it.
Speaking of the 39th President, Scrappleface has this item today(h/t Baseball Crank):
Former U.S. President Jimmy Carter today downplayed rumors that heÂs on Âthe short listÂ of potential replacements if surgery fails to restore the health of ailing Cuban dictator Fidel Castro.
This is kind of funny.
Janet Napolitano still has to win re-election this year as governor. But supporters can already buy items touting her as a presidential candidate two years from now, including buttons, bumper stickers, T-shirts, and even a thong.I don't know much about Gov. Napolitano, but my guess is she isn't thrilled about having her name on thongs even if it is promoting a future run for higher office. Hopefully yardsigns would be seen by more people than the thongs would.
Hey, the president is coming to Ohio again. Unfortunately, it's because a county is a disaster area.
President Bush plans to stop during a visit to Northeast Ohio today to thank some of the hundreds of rescue workers who braved sewage and raging waters to save people in last week's flood. Bush, who declared Lake County a disaster area Tuesday, will talk to several fire chiefs, emergency workers and U.S. Rep. Steve LaTourette during a visit to the Lake County Emergency Management Agency in Kirtland.I wonder if he will get a chance to check out my sister's flooded basement?
