Ann Coulter and John Kerry

December 20, 2006

“A shockingly high number of Democratic candidates this year actually fought in wars. And not just the war on poverty, either—real wars, against men with guns… You can’t run as a phony patriot and then claim your victory is a mandate for surrender. That would be like awarding yourself undeserved Purple Hearts and then pretending to throw them over the White House wall in protest.” —Ann Coulter

“The administration has their position, and it’s not my job at this point—from here particularly—to make comments about their policy. They have their position as the executive branch and we have our position as a separate, co-equal branch of government.” —John Kerry

Would that be co-equal as in having a pretty red “V” on a Silver Star, or more like having yourself awarded a Purple Heart for  scratches, and then tossing away other mens medals?

Rosie O’Donnell

December 20, 2006

“No. I don’t enjoy her. I don’t… No. No. No… I’m not a fan of the Condi. I’m not. I’m just telling you right now I don’t enjoy the Condi. I don’t know. Stop writing, because I’m not gonna enjoy her. And I’m not gonna apologize… I would love to have dinner with her alone one night and force her to drink at least two glasses of wine and then I’ll let you know if I like her.” —Rosie O’Donnell on Condi Rice

The “Rosie” was what was called a “Commerce City Dirt Bag.” Has anything changed? Yes, Commerce City is now a much nicer place to live. Then again, the Rosie has left the city.

Hillary Clinton

December 20, 2006

“Obviously, if we knew then what we know now, there wouldn’t have been a vote, and I certainly wouldn’t have voted that way… I am not in favor of sending more troops to continue what our men and women have been told to do with the government of Iraq pulling the rug out from under them when they actually go after some of the bad guys… I’m not going to believe this president again.” —Hillary in ‘08 Clinton

Hell, next she will be pro gun…

Congressional Mores ?

December 20, 2006

“Congressional mores could certainly use an upgrade, but it pays to beware of reformers promising to clean up politics by letting someone else do the dirty work. Exhibit A is the strange new enthusiasm for an ‘independent’ office of public integrity for Congress… A better name for such an ‘independent’ ethics body would be the office of public buck-passing, because it would allow Congress to spare itself the heavy political lifting of judging colleagues. Handing over that duty to outsiders would make Congress less politically accountable, not more, while creating a whole new set of political problems and disputes… Like campaign finance reform, the proposal to outsource ethics oversight is about the appearance of virtue. It would let the Members pretend to come clean while lifting the burden of actually enforcing their own standards of conduct.” —The Wall Street Journal

Personal integrity is the key to Public Integrity.
