Hurricane "Jar-Jar"?

SPC Phil Van Treuren over at Camp Katrina is floating an interesting idea - start picking hurricane names from from Star Wars.

Hey, this is a real campaign here:

And what movie themes for subsequent Hurricane seasons? I'll leave that up to you, Katrina Campers. Maybe Lord of the Rings? Or The Godfather? With your help, we may yet see Hurricane Fredo Corleone churning on a Fox News weather graphic.

So what do you need to do to help make this dream a reality? ItÂ’s simple. Just send a quick email to the World Meteorological Organization at wmo@wmo.int telling them about your support for this campaign. You can write your own, or copy and paste the sample below.

The text for an email is located in the post. So why not email the useless bureaucrats at Turtle Bay today? The worst you could do is annoy them. And that, in and of itself, would make it worthwhile.

In Defense Of Pragmatism

My fellow Chillin' Coalition member, Mark from Decison '08, looks at making the best of a rough situation with regard to the Miers nomination.

Ironically, the choices that would have fired up the base would have probably turned off vast parts of the public. We cannot force the mainstream to embrace our cause anymore than the Left can; we must work constantly to sell it. Ramming through a hardcore, known conservative because we have the votes and alienating the electorate is just not smart politics for the future.

Rather, we must painstakingly move the center to the right, until conservative judicial principles ARE the mainstream.

I would like to add as a reminder that, yes, many Republicans have been let down by President Bush in the areas of Federal spending and Immigration. But, when you look at the top three priorities of this Administration: the GWOT, tax cuts and judicial nominations, it's important to note that Bush hasn't screwed over his base once...not a single time. I think it's premature to assume that he has done so here.

Coalition Of The Chillin' : SCOTUS Division


I'm in! Scroll two posts down for my position.

As Lorie Byrd says:

How can those of us on the right ask the Democrats to give President BushÂ’s nominees a chance before passing judgment, when some of our own are not willing to do so?
