Victor Davis Hanson Is The Smartest Man In America

I've said it before and I will continue to say it.
Read this article from NRO (hat tip Charles at LGF), and tell me what is wrong with the usual suspects.
VDH takes apart each of the so called intellectual's "plans" for "solving" the problems in Iraq.

My favorite quote:
The dismemberment of Yugoslavia in retrospect does not seem such a good idea
What a great slap at the Foggy Bottom world view, a world view that appears to have taken over Condi Rice's soul. For examples see her shameless attacks on Israel, while the IDF was removing Israelis from their homes in Gaza.
But that is a topic for another blast.

And lastly in reference to the title of this piece, Sorry Hillary!!!

"Over There" Sucks

I will start off by stating that I have not even watched 1 minute of the crap fest on FX called Over There.
It is supposed to be a "true life" view of what is happening over in Iraq to the American soldiers that are fighting the war on terror.
every add I have seen makes me want to retch.
The last couple of nights I have been subjected to adds for an episode where the Americans find a house filled with money and gold. The central theme appears to be "how we going to steal this money for our own selves", not how do we get this money back to the Government of Iraq. Because we all remember the story of the American soldiers who stole the 10 million dollars that were found in Tikrit. No you don't remember that story, well maybe because IT NEVER F***ING HAPPENED!!!!!
There was a crappy movie made after The Gulf War about something like this, but I have yet to hear any stories of greedy, corrupt, evil Americans stealing from Iraq.

The sad thing is there will be people who watch this stuff and who will believe it, see my previous post for a hint as to who.

The Mother Sheehan Road Show...

has finally made it to Washington DC.
The tens of thousands of her supporters are running all over the city disrupting...
there aren't tens of thousands of well dressed polite "grieving mothers"?
It is only 30 of the not so great unwashed who have traveled all over the country in (this is my favorite part) Black SUV's until they stopped in DC.

Well this little side show will finally end, right after The Junior Senator from New York, puts a metaphorical cap in her ass later this week. Even the wingnuts have to realize that they can not afford to have the Mother Sheehan Experience following the party into the next election cycle.

Somewhere Out There

Let us first offer up prayers to the residents of the Texas and Louisiana gulf coast as Rita heads their way.

Next let;s think about "lessons learned."
Why in quotes? Because that is how the Lame Stream Media and the Libs in my office see the differences to the responses.
To them it has nothing to do with City and State officials who are willing to tell people what they need to hear, while not being afraid of the political repercussions.
The Mayor of Galveston Texas ORDERED the city busses to be used to move people out of the city who couldn't get out on there own. The sick, the old and the poor were moved by the FIRST RESPONDERS, not left for the Feds to find and then later bury.
Meanwhile New Orleans Mayor Ray "I have a house in Dallas now" Nagin, is still trying to blame his own lack of political will on GWB.
