RINO Sightings - The "39th Birthday Blues" Edition

It's time for the latest carnival of the Raging RINOs. Unfortunately for me, later this week I will be marking my 39th birthday (for the first time). If turning 40 is the alarm going off, then 39 is hitting the "snooze" button. I volunteered to host this edition of the carnival to take my mind off of this upcoming event and I was treated to a great round of submissions.

So hop into your safari jeep and let's get underway for this week's R.I.N.O. Sightings!

Higher Learning

First up, we take a look at some whacky things going on in the Academy. Cardinal Martini has been following a story about Dr. Diana Blane, a USC Professor who says all men are rapists and posts topless photos of herself on her Flikr website.

The Recovering Democrat tells us about a Boston College professor who resigned his post in protest of Secretary of State Condi Rice's scheduled commencement address. One down, thousands more to go...

Cultural Debates

The Commissar takes exception to a post that argues against Evolution in favor of Intelligent Design. And the fisking ensues.

Many fans of the film "The Big Lebowski" think of it a "stoner" film, considering that "The Dude" is an aging ex-hippy. Not so, says Blogger Ale. Hey, didn't you notice all those white russians?

Freedom Of Speech

You can't be a blogger and not be concerned over first amendment protection. And we have two examples of the Bush Administration encroaching on them. Eric at Classical Values slams a proposal to filter out blogs from public library servers - not just certain blogs, all blogs. Because they're potential sexual predators.

Barry at Everanche found a simple six word reaction of one website proprietor who has been contacted by the FBI.

Election 2006

Barry also looks at the state of U.S. politics, with six months to go before November's election.

On that same topic, Dan at Searchlight Crusade observes that both parties have an opportunity this Fall. He offers a winning strategy to whichever one has the 'nads to do it.

The Old World

But even France has its own political intrique unfolding. Pigilito calls our attention to a smear campaign against a challenger to the current government.

And Tom Hanna highlights the double standard being used by old Europe to rebuke their socialist brethren in Latin America.

Media Matters

Are newspapers gasping their last dying breaths? Not so fast, says Don Surber, who describes how the internet is keeping newspapers alive rather than killing them off.

The NSA Today

The biggest meme of the week was Thursday's USAToday story about the database of phone numbers being used by the NSA to locate and catch terrorists. AJ Strata asks "Do we want to stop a terrorist attack or not?".

Mark at Decision '08 puts to rest any question of the program's legality.

Jeff at the SoCalLaw Blog explains how civil lawsuits against the NSA are being thwarted because they involve state secrets.

CNN's Jack Cafferty showed signs of "Bush Derangement Syndrome" on the air when he suggested that we are on the verge of "a dictatorship". Scott at Environmental Republican says give me a break.

And on a lighter note, Rachel from Tinkerty Tonk reveals the kind of transcripts you might find in her NSA file.

I doubt there is a single sensible person out there that doesn't smell a rat when you consider the timing of the USAToday story with the current Senate hearings on General Michael Hayden's nomination as new CIA Director. Cold Hearted Truth looks at how the MSM just had to try, and how polls show they failed...again

Well, that's it for this week. Until the next Carnival, this is Gary the Ex-Donkey saying "Keep Raging!"
