My husband is a gem, a jewel!

I don't write much about my husband because he's a private fella; now and again I'll relate a period of puzzlement he may express regarding our children or the books that disturb his sleep, or some recipe-gone-wrong. I think once I referred to him as a "swell egg."But after reading Rachel Lucas and Dr. Helen on this miserable toothache of a woman who recommends treating a husband like a child in order to achieve "parity" in marriage (dear Lord in heaven - who has been promoting this myth … [Read more...]

Benedict: The Last 20th Century Man: UPDATED

:::SCROLL DOWN FOR UPDATE:::It seems almost silly to say I am bringing coverage of Benedict XVI's extraordinary sojourn in America to a close (actually, my final final thoughts are here) because the truth is I will likely be reading all of his addresses more closely and bringing them up in coming weeks, but the wall-to-wall writing will end here. I do want, though, to end with a thought that blipped through my head when Benedict was in DC, and again as he addressed the United … [Read more...]

Incuriouser & Incuriouser – Bush or the Press?

Jay Ambrose has a great piece up that touches on something I've always maintained, that the word "incurious" belongs rightly to the press, not the president.The incurious press never did want to know about John Kerry's military records...they never did actually want to hear what the Swiftboat Vets had to say...hell, they weren't even curious enough about Plamegate to ask Joe Wilson a question beyond "so, how is the Bush Neocon Cabal out to get you?" They never were curious enough to ask … [Read more...]

The NY Times Calling for Coup or Impeachment?

This editorial strikes me as being right up there with Harry Reid's insistance, after Fitzgerald didn't give the Dems what they wanted, (Rove's head on a platter) that Bush give it to them anyway!"We don't want him to be president for three more years! The ignoramuses in the red states might have elected him, but we're not going to stop the tantrum until he's gone!"The NY Times, in this editorial, sounds remarkably like a frustrated kid in a snit. Like George Will, last month, writing … [Read more...]

That moron Bush is reading my book?

Hee-hee...I don't know why but so many stories are striking my funny bone today. This one cracked me up.According to the White House, one of three books Bush chose to read on his five-week vacation is "Salt: A World History" by Mark Kurlansky, who chronicled the rise and fall of what once was considered the world's most strategic commodity.The other two books he reportedly brought to Crawford are "Alexander II: The Last Great Tsar" by Edvard Radzinsky and "The Great Influenza: The Epic … [Read more...]

DNC uses Bush’s PHYSICAL for fodder?

Really...this is pathetic. When you have to use the report on the president's annual physical to give a shrill yell, throw hate darts and play politics, then you might as well just give it up, get back into the sandbox and stop even pretending that you are grown-ups.ATTENTION DEMOCRATS: If you want to be taken seriously - at all - in the next two elections, then you must learn appropriate responses. In this case, the appropriate response to good news about the president's health is … [Read more...]

Perpetual Adolescent watch

Once again, they're taking off all their clothes because...somehow...that means something intelligent.My niece used to get naked when she was having a tantrum, but she outgrew it.This is not work-safe, and if the site of pendulous, sagging breasts, inflated scrotums and transgendered nudity upsets you, you shouldn't go look.If you're mightily bored, you can go look, but you'll still be bored. In which case I highly recommend you go read this article by Cheri Pierson Yecke which points out … [Read more...]

Playing the Catholic card AND the Gay Card?

I noticed this yesterday on Ann Althouse's blog and I was really hoping it would just go away, that we wouldn't have to see the Democrats and some on the left once again bring themselves to the edge of something truly ugly by playing the "gay, gay, gay" card. But I should have known better. And this time, the left is going to really out-do itself, by the way, because they're not only going to whisper "gay," as they do often, they're going to do it while playing the Catholic card. That's … [Read more...]

A “screw abstinence” party. The mind reels

Ah, the perpetual adolescents are at it again.An affiliate of one of the nation's leading abortion-rights groups is taking a hard-edged swipe at cultural conservatives by inviting young donors to a "Screw Abstinence Party."The Washington-state affiliate of NARAL Pro-Choice America says the first-of-its-kind fund-raiser tomorrow night in Seattle targets young professionals in their 20s and 30s.A promo for the event says: "Tired of Bush & Co. spending your tax dollars on … [Read more...]

No, they will NEVER grow up

I'm introducing a new category, called The Perpetual Adolescents, and in that catagory we will discuss the stubborn refusal of some - not all, of course - but some parts of the left to grow up.In the category we will include all of the aging schoolgirl columnists (bless Mark Steyn, forever, for that description).And we'll also include some things like this:WARNING: THE FOLLOWING LINK CONTAINS THE "F" WORD. DO NOT READ IF IT WILL OFFEND.It's one of those cafepress sites, where cyberfolk … [Read more...]
