Yep, I miss Bush – UPDATED

And if that annoys anyone, that's too bad.Seems increasingly like all the "Fascist Bush" caterwauling was the usual fake, dishonest theater meant as a means to an end - the end being to destroy the hated "election stealer" and his legacy, and not much more.But you know, for someone who "did everything wrong," his policies suddenly seem wise and right to some surprising people.It's easy to campaign and criticize. It's much more difficult to govern, especially knowing that if you don't keep … [Read more...]

Pope Punks Pelosi Pic

In my piece for Pajamas Media, I said that basically, the meeting between The Pope and The Pelosi would produce no fireworks, and that "...the impact of this meeting may not be felt until it has been forgotten."Well. Not quite. The Vatican - clearly as aware as Pelosi of the power of an image - made a point of releasing no photo, as "the encounter was private" and the pope "briefly greeted" Pelosi and did not mention any other subject they may have discussed.:Benedict spoke of the church's … [Read more...]

Flattered & Blushing linkaround – UPDATED

Amazing footage: US Air Splashdown. Watching those people evacuate is really something. Thank God for good news.As the doorman said, "well, bust my buttons!" It seems Tony Blankley has visited my humble abode and said some very nice things. I'm blushing. No, really. But that was very nice; thanks. I would add that I share the same experience with Blankley; I get the papers and leave them unread because I get it all online. But...we do need our crossword puzzles and our Sudoku's, don't … [Read more...]

Some questions from the mailbag

Q: Anchoress, I notice you're writing a lot about Advent and nothing about politics.A: Well, you're very observant! I decided after the election - actually a few weeks before the election, but by then I was in the circuit and had to see it through, so to speak - that I would write about politics only where it intersects with religion. I didn't like myself writing about politics and I frankly didn't like the tones being sounded from the right in my email. Also, Advent is just always … [Read more...]

Dean Barnett, RIP

I am very sorry to learn this sad news.I did not know Barnett but I admired his smart, witty writing immensely.Prayers for his family at this time...this is one of my favorites of his pieces:I am 37 years old and have cystic fibrosis. I’m at a stage in my life where finding a cure or control for CF is a matter of some urgency. Nonetheless, I do not support embryo cloning for stem-cell research. Creating life for the purpose of destroying it, as Governor Romney put it on Sunday, is on the … [Read more...]

Abortion Survivor on Obama's Vote

The way I understand it, the Infants Born Alive Bill was introduced to the IL Senate and Obama voted against it because he wanted it to have the same language as the Federal Born Alive Bill. When the bill was re-presented containing that clause, Obama voted against it again. So, given the chance, twice, to vote against infanticide, Obama voted for.He also lied about all of this earlier in the campaign, before admitting that he was lying.Obama has the most liberal voting record you can have … [Read more...]

Pelosi, Abortion & St. Augustine – UPDATED

I was just out driving, had the radio on and heard this Meet the Press sound bite by Nancy Pelosi, on Limbaugh's show:REP. PELOSI: I would say that as an ardent, practicing Catholic, this is an issue that I have studied for a long time. And what I know is, over the centuries, the doctors of the church have not been able to make that definition. And Senator–St. Augustine said at three months. We don’t know. The point is, is that it shouldn’t have an impact on the woman’s right to choose. Ro … [Read more...]

Questions in the blogosphere

I'm kinda pooped from all the Benedict blogging of late. Meanwhile, a quick lookaround:From the Dept. of Silly Quesitons:Q: Did Laura Bush wear white to host the pope at the White House because she believes she is a monarch's wife or because she is signaling an assent to the rampant rumors that President Bush will become a Catholic when he leaves office?A: Cueing the Twilight Zone music, I'm going to hazard a guess: Mrs. Bush and Jenna Bush both wore black skirts to meet Benedict … [Read more...]
