Comments on Falwell's passing

My two cents… It has to be a difficult time for Rev. Jerry Falwell’s family right now. They are going to have to deal with an intense storm of media coverage, with bloviating from the left and the right, and much of it will not be pretty or complimentary. To

Is Our AG Learning?

Ever since Tommy Franks called Doug Feith "The stupidest fucking guy on the planet," an endless stream of Republican challengers have been vying to claim that mantle for themselves.  Attorney General Alberto Gonzales, if not the clear-cut winner, should at least be considered a very strong finalist for the honor.
