Wednesday night links and comments

Unknown presidential candidate Rep. Duncan Hunter (R-CA) guest blogged a post at GOPBloggers. All of it is worth reading to understand Hunter's conservative point of view. The best line is this jab at his GOP opponents:
National Journal ranks me as the most conservative member of Congress running for the Presidency based on my lifetime voting record. So, I don't need to hire an army of consultants to turn me into a conservative.
Right now Hunter would be the candidate most in alignment with my positions. His problem is that outside of California no one knows him. Perception can become reality as campaign donations go to candidates perceived to have a chance and he doesn't have a chance because of lack of funding.

James Dobson is some kind of heavy weight in the "religious right." Recently, he opened his mouth to change feet. Unfortunately, while his mouth was open some words escaped regarding former senator and potential presidential candidate Fred Thompson.
"Everyone knows he's conservative and has come out strongly for the things that the pro-family movement stands for," Dobson said of Thompson. "[But] I don't think he's a Christian; at least that's my impression," Dobson added, saying that such an impression would make it difficult for Thompson to connect with the Republican Party's conservative Christian base and win the GOP nomination.
Just who the heck does this goof think he is questioning someone's Christianity. I have no problem with religious "leaders" advising their congregation about issues (ex: sin is bad, follow the Ten Commandments, etc). However, it is disquieting to see them get involved in this manner. Politically, this could be an opportunity for Thompson to have a "Sister Souljah moment." It would be great to see Thompson publicly slam Dobson and tell him he has no business questioning his faith.

William F. Buckley Jr. has a column titled "John Edwards Will Give You Free Health Care." It is a shame that politicians don't understand the concept that nothing is really free. Someone else may be paying, but unless doctors and nurses start working for nothing and companies stop charging for medical equipment and supplies then medical treatment will not be free.
Therefore, Mr. Edwards is doing nothing more than to call for increased taxes on the wealthy. They used to call that socialized medicine, when it was instituted by Great Britain after the war. It crossed the Atlantic into Canada, which is a tidy country in which to get sick, provided you can afford to travel across the border to an American doctor.

Most political endorsements are a quid pro quo to some degree, but this is fairly transparent.
Sen. Hillary Clinton has agreed to help former Iowa Gov. Tom Vilsack, who endorsed her Monday, pay off his $400,000 campaign debt. Clinton (D-N.Y.) will put the arm on her donor network for Vilsack, who quit the presidential race Feb. 23 citing financial difficulties.

We can only hope this story is true and that this will change things.
U.S. forces have arrested the leaders of one of the deadliest car-bomb-making networks in Baghdad, a military spokesman said.

I frequently criticize lawyers and judges for their negative affect on our society so I should acknowledge it when they use common sense. Here is an instance of a judge stopping someone from doing something really stupid.
Judge bars Bears fan from making good on 'Peyton Manning' bet

Sad story of the day:
Sister of Dying Man Refuses to Donate Bone Marrow to Save His Life
The sad part isn't that he will die. Everyone dies. No, the sad part is he will die knowing his sister thought so little of him that she would not try to help him live longer.

I have no problems with Hunter and I think he would make an excellent candidate. But I think eventually he will bow out and probably back I also think the whole Fred Thompson thing is a ploy for him to gain favorable ratings then drop out and back his friend, John McCain.

Bill, The internet was the perfect launching pad for Dean, hopefully Hunter can gain the same kind of boost.

I sure hope Ben is wrong by the time McCain would take office he would be in his 70's and I think that is to old for him to last 2 terms.

It's too bad that they don't make muzzles for people Dobson could keep them in business all by him self.

I don't see the McCain campaign going anywhere. He is already complaining about money problems. Thompson is dipping his toes in the water to send a signal to potential financial backers. This period long before the primaries is all about raising money and getting endorsements. Giuliani is winning this round for now.

seriously anyone other than that turd sandwich of a son of mine-geesh what a disgrace. Quite frankly if we want to start winning elections and GOVERNING again we need to back away from these wacko oddballs like dobson. They are a liability. We should have enough smart, savvy and financially conscientous individuals to get back to what made us great. Limited government, sensible foriegn and domestic policy. We have wallowed in the morass of the "culture war" and look at what it has wrought. An ineffective government even though we controlled both legislative and executive branches. Now I know the rebuttal is that things changed after 911, and while that is true, it created an opportunity for us to GOVERN, which we subsequently squandered. Look at who is percolating up in the democratic party. The mainstream person swayed to them because we were not governng. We have been given a message, Thankfully we have a shot of doing something positive. The first step to that would be to distance ourselves from the far right. (as the dems did from the far left in 06) Billyboy constantly scoffs at my hope for Hagel, fine, but Rudy has been someone who was effective in an executive position, Responded well in a crisis (as opposed to the fruit of my loins who shat himself while reading my pet goat) and is a FISCAL conservative. Not only that he is capable of beating ANYONE the dems throw up, and they know it.
