I'm sorry, but this is just too old and tired for me to get "up" about. I really could give a rats ass if Valerie got outed. Joe Wilson's a pompous ass. It was cool that the moonbats got all worked up about getting Karl Rove and Dick Cheney. Nice try moonies. Do we really need four years of an elected democratic controlled congress that is going to waste the peoples money impeaching the President, Vice President, et al, while we are still in a war? I don't think this is in the best interest of the country. But that is the looney lefts ambition.
Slanted report? The office of Sen. James M. Inhofe, Oklahoma Republican, has accused former NBC News anchor Tom Brokaw of a lack of objectivity and balance in the upcoming Discovery Channel documentary "Global Warming: What You Need to Know." "Brokaw's partisan past and his reliance on scientists who openly endorsed Democratic presidential candidate John Kerry in 2004 and who are financially affiliated with left-wing environmental groups, has resulted in a documentary that is devoid of balance and objectivity," said a statement put out by Inhofe aide Marc Morano. Mr. Inhofe is chairman of the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee. Roger Pielke Sr., a climatologists and professor of atmospheric sciences at Colorado State University, viewed an advance copy of the Brokaw special and said it contained "errors and misconceptions."
Sabotage potential. We have no evidence that the U.S. was able to sabotage North Korea's Taepodong-2 missile, which malfunctioned 42 seconds into launch on Tuesday and crashed. But we do note that special operations forces (SOF) are playing an increasing role, overt and covert, in the world under Defense Secretary Donald H. Rumsfeld's rule. We also note that one of the reasons that SOF procured the powerful .50- caliber Barrett's sniper rifle was to have the capability to disable ballistic missiles. It's a scenario for missile defense you won't see in any literature from the Pentagon's Missile Defense Agency: insert a commando behind the lines, who positions himself within shooting range of the launchpad. "One of the original reasons for procuring the .50-caliber sniper system was to disable missiles," a SOF source says. "A round pumped in prior to launch, or during to cover the noise, in the right place would cause a catastrophic malfunction."
Finally......... It has been "entertaining" to say the least reading the Frisch-Goldstein-Greenwald-Patterico saga the past 48 hours. If you missed it, your not surfing the blogs good enough. Even Brit Hume mentioned the resignation of Frisch tonight over the sad comments she said threatening Jeffs kid.
Note: Patterico did go to work.
The rest of these people have way too much time on their hands.
