If this is true I'll be glad to help take care of business with my Glock 23.

This will make the fiscal conservative in you want to hurl. (Hat tip to Andrew Sullivan)

Perhaps this is all part of a shrewd plan by Karl Rove to have Bush propose all kinds of crazy spending programs to get democratic votes, and then have the Republican congress actually cut spending while nobody is looking. Or, perhaps we're all getting the Deliverance treatment.
Dick Morris was on Hannity and Colmes last night, and he's pretty sure that Hillary is in line for the VP spot. It seems she would make for a strong ticket, but she brings a lot of baggage that could be exploited by the Bush campaign as well. I suggested this a while back, and I still think it's going to happen.

It makes sense if you think about it. If she turns down being Kerry's running mate, she risks being shut out of the presidential spot until 2012 if Kerry wins. If Kerry loses, she's still in the Senate, and can come back strong in 2008 without going up against an incumbent president. The only way I see her turning this post down is if the Clinton machine feels they can sabotage the Kerry campaign and insure a Bush victory in November (I know, big time conspiracy theory, but we've seen worse.) This way she makes a bid in 2008 without the taint of being defeated alongside Kerry four years prior. Either way, this is going to be very interesting.

So much for horrible human rights abuse charges at Gitmo.
The shredding of John Kerry has begun. This will be fun to watch after months of democratic candidates taking pot shots at the president. I don't think this photo will sway many lefites though, since their philosophy allows for fleeing to Europe and protesting against your country during a war (Bill Clinton) but vilifies joining the National Guard during a war (George W Bush.)

Hey, is that Jason Lee in his Almost Famous garb behind Jane Fonda?
