This would be a great way to reform our ridiculous social security system. Unfortunately, it just makes too much sense to ever make it past the socialists.

If this story is true, John Kerry should be drawn and quartered.

This post from NRO pretty much sums up why I love Rummy:

Just when I think I like Donald Rumsfeld a little too much — that I've gone a little bit overboard — something occurs that makes me think, "No, actually — I may have undervalued him."

One of the beautiful things about him is that he refers to the West Bank and the Gaza Strip as "the so-called occupied territories." (For all I know, he uses "Judea" and "Samaria" when doors are closed!) But I'm thinking now about something else. At the recent conference in Munich, Rumsfeld was asked why the United States doesn't make a fuss about Israeli nuclear weapons. We're supposed to be against nukes, right? Why don't we go after Israel?

Replied the secretary of defense: "You know the answer by yourself, and the whole world knows the answer. Israel is a small country with a small population. It is a democracy, but exists among neighbors who want to see her in the sea. Israel has made it clear that she does not want to be in the sea, and as a result, over several decades, has organized in such a manner as not to be thrown into the sea."

Savor it now, ladies and gents, for we will probably never — ever — see the likes of this fellow, in an office this key, again.

Here's something to make you feel nice and secure.

If one of these babies can "slip through the system" it makes you wonder what else is floating around out there. Note: A suitcase nuke is much smaller than an F-18.

Here's the best list of potential talking points for the Bush campaign to use against John Kerry that I've come across so far. I particularly like the fact that this list relies mostly on Kerry's performance as a Senator. We can only hope that the debate rises to the point of discussing actual pertinent issues.
