I pledge that, if the FEC makes any attempt to crack down on on-line political expression, I will increase my political commentary in defiance of them. Massive civil disobediance is the best way to fight this new attempt to shut down public debate.
Fred Siegel has an interesting article on the intellectual vacuity of the postmodern radical left:
Back in the fall of 2003, when Dr. Dean was still riding high in the Presidential primary, I
The president is going to nominate Paul Wolfowitz to head the World Bank. This will make certain persons’ heads explode. I hope.
I know that schadenfreude is an unworthy emotion, but one of the biggest reasons that I wanted to see Bush reelected was because it would make the moonbats so foaming-at-the-mouth, furiously nuts.

CU’s buyout offer will be in the “$3-$5 million range – possibly higher”
Hmmmm…not a bad payoff for Chief Pants-On-Fire.
If CU is seeing their out-of-state admissions fall now, just wait until the news of this gets out. Not to mention what may happen to alumni donations.

The Pirate Ballerina site seems to be down, for those wondering why the link was dead. But it was a link to a story at the Rockey Mountain News.
Why do I think that Bill Richardson is already after the 2008 Democrat nomination?
Somebody’s got to go after the non-Hillary Democrat hawk vote. Looks like he’s positioning himself to compete with Biden for it.
