...they really like me!!
Get Smart's Don Adams died today of a lung infection. Adams' portrayal of Maxwell Smart, Agent 86, was a real treat to watch in reruns when I was a kid. The show, created by Mel Brooks and Buck Henry, was a great lampoon on the whole secret agent/James Bond genre and it was one of a kind.
Sheehan and several dozen other protesters sat down on the sidewalk after marching along the pedestrian walkway on Pennsylvania Avenue. Police warned them three times that they were breaking the law by failing to move along, then began making arrests.Several dozen others? Don't they mean like, maybe,...two dozen? Yesterday it was about thirty people and you gotta figure at least a few have real jobs to go to today.
Sheehan, 48, was the first taken into custody. She stood up and was led to a police vehicle while protesters chanted, "The whole world is watching."
This is becoming such a joke, it's almost uncomfortable to watch. I hope it lasts!
..."a disorganized, contentious, self-absorbed team that thought they could win by 'not making mistakes,' and keeping their candidate in the public eye without clarifying a position on anything."more...
At least that's what the A/P considers a crowd. Because that's all the America-hating moonbats that Cindy Sheehan could muster for her march on the White House this weekend.
Experts who have studied the US navy's cetacean training exercises claim the 36 mammals could be carrying 'toxic dart' guns. Divers and surfers risk attack, they claim, from a species considered to be among the planet's smartest. The US navy admits it has been training dolphins for military purposes, but has refused to confirm that any are missing.Well, it's not exactly sharks with frickin' lasers on their frickin' heads, but it's a start.

Well, that was fun. Seriously, San Diego needed this game. Already two in the hole, the next several weeks presents a brutal schedule with such teams as: New England, Pittsburgh, Oakland, Philly...ouch. If they lost tonight, they could pretty much have written the season off. This game had a playoff intensity about it.
The Chargers played hard and they played to win, and my hat's off to them. To be honest I'm a lot less annoyed at the loss itself as I am of the fact that San Diego's star running back, LaDainian Tomlinson, was so often referred to as "L.T."
There is only ONE L.T. and that's Hall Of Fame Linebacker #56 Lawrence Taylor. And to have the announcers on ESPN constantly singing "L.T.'s" praises really got on my nerves. Let the guy come up with his own friggin' nickname.
Anyway, I was impressed with Eli Manning's poise throughout this game. He never got rattled, not once. And he kept making awesome passes well after the game seemed to get out of reach. And to come back from a 21-3 deficit and end the second half within one point of Chargers was encouraging. Manning has proven that good things will happen in his career. This is only the beginning.
I've heard people say this week that the Chargers are not really an 0-2 team. That's a crock. If you have no wins and two losses then guess what? You're an 0-2 team and you earned that record. Potential is for shit in the NFL.
Face it, there are a few elite teams in the league, a few dogs, and on any given Sunday any of those teams in the middle is capable of beating any other team in the middle. Parity in Pro Football is the reality. So I don't care how "good" on paper a team is supposed to be. If they don't play well, they're going to get their asses handed to them.
Now the Chargers may very well beat the Giants tonight. But if they do it's not because they "should be able to", it'll be because they played smarter, harder and better.
But my money is on New York. If San Diego is really better than their record would indicate, they're going to have to prove it.
And of course if the Chargers do win, I'll chalk it up to fact that they were due. ;-)
Michelle Malkin has this gem and many more in her Flickr album of this weekend's protests in D.C.
What a freak show.

Simple: Thirty-five years ago, there was a groundswell of opposition to the war made up of individuals who, however naive and misguided, were reflecting a genuine feeling in the country at the time. Today, this motley road show of media hounds is comprised of professional protesters. Opposition to this war, is mostly a reflection of various kook organizations trying to push their Left-wing anti-American agenda.
Betsy Newmark shines the spotlight on these familiar names and faces who always manage to show up whenever there's an opportunity to perform for the cameras - and hatred of America is their primary motivation.
As he surveyed a demonstration of the Republic's new Clone Army on Kamino, Obi-Wan Kenobi began to have his doubts.
Farmer Jones searched tirelessly for the wedding ring that his wife accidentally dropped in the horse's feed bag the day before.
It's official. Of course, they could be full of Budweiser for all the good it does me.
One of my favorites:
I was struck by the commander who said, 'I want to kill a very bad pagan among the prisoners to receive more blessing from Allah." I think his reasoning is emblematic of what we're up against with respect to Islamic fascism. We in the West desperately want to believe that we can find common, rational ground and negotiate with Islamic fascists. The Commander exemplifies why negotiation, in the end, is folly. For them, they merely buy time with negotiation. Their life on Earth is not important; it's what comes after that matters. We should be mindful of that while we lodge complaints to Iranian mullahs who race towards making isotopes.This is something the peaceniks - or the appeasers - just don't understand. To those who say "war is never justified" I would point out that, whether they want to admit it or not, war is being made on the United States and the Western world. For those who purposely target and murder the innocent in the name of Wahabism, this war won't be over until all the world follows the tenets of Islam or until all those who refuse are dead. We can either do whatever we can to fight this, or we can simply accept it as inevitable.
Bury your head in the sand at your own peril.
But McCain?!? This is the guy who spent five years at the Hanoi Hilton while war protesters back home gave support and comfort to the enemy? He's meeting with this moonbat?
Now I know McCain is a media hound and suffers from an irrational desire to be liked by everyone. But this should have other Vietnam Veterens' blood boiling. I can only hope that he's taking this as an opportunity to verbally bitch-slap her and try to shame her for her bull-shenanigans.
I'm not holding my breath.

"I believe I must vote against [Roberts'] confirmation. I do not believe that the Judge has presented his views with enough clarity and specificity for me to in good conscience cast a vote on his behalf."So there's not really an issue with his qualifications. It's just that he didn't pass the Chuckie Schumer test - spell out plainly how you would rule on any number of cases that may come before you.
So reads her official statement. Well neither did Ruth Bader Ginsburg in 1993, and rightly so. Such testimony would encourage one side or another to bring cases before SCOTUS with the idea that he or she has already "pre-judged" the case.
Hillary is trying really, really hard to present a "moderate" face to potential voters for her Presidential run in 2008. But if she doesn't mollify
her base the hard-Left moonbats, she won't be a Senator in 2007.
Watch many a Dem Senator pull this same stunt - with the same rationale - next week, when Roberts' nomination goes before the full Senate. If he's confirmed with 65 total votes, it would be a miracle.
And once again, Democrats will show the average voter that it doesn't matter who Bush nominates - no matter how qualified - he or she will be "unacceptable" to the moonbat Left, who is in the driver's seat for the Dems.
Got a busy weekend coming up, don't expect more than one post before Monday morning.
BTW - Happy Birthday Bilbo and Frodo!
Don't these people have actual jobs?
Pathetic, yet hilarious. My favorite part is when the RV backs over the Vespa. Like...bummer, man.
