…at 11am…good night. (P.S. Wasn’t Harry Reid the perfect lullaby?)

This War’s Hanoi Janes



Text  



Spike Lee and Edward Norton are disgraceful, despicable men. As mentioned earlier in The Corner, they are in Germany now at a film festival, trashing their country in wartime. “It’s nice being in Europe this week,” Norton told reporters in Berlin. “Almost everyone in Germany and France is in sync with the governments. I almost forgot what it’s like to be proud of my government.” If I said what I really felt, K-Lo would ban me permanently from the Corner. If Al Gore were our president, I would feel exactly the same way. You just don’t do that to your country. Use the link to read the whole story, and see what these and other shameful Celebrity-Americans, pampered Hollywood prisspots all, are saying abroad.

It is not unpatriotic to dissent from your government’s policy. It is unpatriotic and indescribably vile to go stand in the former capital of Nazi Germany, before the children and grandchildren of the SS and the Gestapo, and trash your American president and your American nation.

This should not be forgotten. Somehow, I don’t think Rush will let it pass without comment.

There Are More Left-Wing Hispanic & Other Related Groups Then I Could Have Ever Dreamt Up

Thanks, Harry Reid, for reading off that long list after midnight.

Bin Laden Headed Here?

New tape purportedly from him says he will die as a martyr against his enemy in the next year. “I pray my demise isn’t on a coffin bearing green mantles. I wish my demise to be in the eagle’s belly.” Got this from Drudge.

Worth Many Looks



Text  



I don’t often advertise blog sites, simply because there are so very many. But NRO friend and frequent contributor Ross Douthat has one with Policy Review-er Steve Menashi, and it is worth reading. I look forward to telling people next week when Ross is rich and famous–which he will be, mark my words–that he was an NR intern once. Here it is.

“Weapons of Mass Obstruction”

Sen. Hatch very proud of that one.

What Is Going Through The K-Lo Mind



Text  



Not that you asked. But then you never do. And Jonah’s not here to make this a magical mystical kingdom, so I will blather. So, what I am thinking: Hatch does this, at midnight, without caffeine. That’s amazing.

Bummer

C-SPAN II, which carries the Senate, now goes off from my cable system around 5 or so, since our carrier switch the lineup earlier this month!

Gonzales For The Defense



Text  



White House counsel Albert Gonzales has penned a devastating response to Senators Daschle’s and Leahy’s explanation for their obstruction of the Estrada nomination. The White House has not posted the letter on the web as of yet. Fortunately, Howard Bashman has here.
(Word has it a PDF version should be linked here sometime on Thursday.)

The Moseley-Braun Bid



Text  



Call me a cynic, but I see the Moseley-Braun presidential bid as nothing more than a scarely transparent effort to drain support from Al Sharpton so as to dilute his impact on the nominating process.

Subway Attack?



Text  



A New York reader suggests this explanation for why people were so grim on the subways today. Seems that a NYC newstalk radio station ran with an item this morning saying that a member of the House Intelligence Committee told her daughter, who lives in NYC, to stay out of the subways. When asked about it, the Congresswoman, Jane Harmon, didn’t deny warning her daughter, but said it wasn’t based on intelligence information (follow the link to the reader’s blog for more information). A friend of mine heard the same radio broadcast too.

Pardon me, but the Congresswoman’s explanation is hard to believe, given her position on the Intelligence Committee. Anyway, if the authorities have serious reason to believe there’s going to be an imminent attack on the city’s subways, then they should tell us, and let us plebes make our own minds up about whether or not to use the trains. Me, I’m going to keep using them (like six million other New Yorkers, I’ve got no choice), but not during rush hour, if I can help it.

No!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

From The House Liberal

My wife’s advice on buying duct tape: Put it over the mouths of the people urging us to buy duct tape.
(Jeanne is a liberal Democrat, but a tough one.)

Another Reason to Chill



Text  



Maybe people are just taking long President’s Day weekends, thus the fewer people on the subway–that will certainly be an easy explanation tomorrow if crowds are thinner than usual?

By The Way...

Does anybody still think it’s a bad idea to build a missile defense system? The limited version the Bush administration is planning has the North Korean threat specifically in mind.
