Making Up for Lost Time

Much has happened in the last 9 months:

  • The 2008 Presidential circus is underway much earlier that ever before - thank you McCain-Feingold (and President Bush for signing the stupid thing). Now that only millionaires can afford to run for office, children can dream about being a contestant on American Idol instead of President.
  • General Petraeus, widely acknowledged as the military insurgency expert, was put in charge of the war effort in Iraq. Harry Reid, the Democrat Majority Leader, wasted no time in claiming that the General was incompetent and a failure. Harry Reid, who is an expert in incompetence and failure, ought to recognized it when he sees it, right?
  • Paris Hilton (you don't know how much it pains me to even mention her name) has been all over the news. This, coupled with the decrease in reporting from Iraq, is clearly the best evidence that the Troop Surge orchestrated by General Petraeus is working.
  • Presidential hopeful John Edwards (millionaire trial lawyer), has assured us that the Global War on Islamic Radicalism is just a figment of President Bush's imagination. I suppose the recent Al Qaida-linked attacks in London and Scotland are just a figment of his imagination, too.
  • Speaking of John Edwards, do we really want a President who can't figure out that when you're paying $400 for a haircut - any haircut - you're getting ripped off?
  • When the price of gas goes up 15 cents a gallon, why do people complain about "Big Oil" and ignore "Big Government" who taxes us 25 cents or MORE per gallon? Here in Minnesota, our Democrat-run Legislature decided that we weren't paying enough in gas taxes and tried to raise them even more! Well, who can blame them. They're just doing what they always do: Tax, tax, tax.
  • In the wake of the failed bi-partisan Senatorial plot to leave the US borders open to illegal immigration, Republicans Trent Lott and Lindsey Graham aparently the only fences they're willing to build is between themselves and members of their own party. Instead of trying to unite the Republican Party, they lashed out at "talk radio" and those of us who believe this country should control its borders. Get used to the title Minority Whip, Trent.
Well, in the words of Forest Gump, that's all I have to say about that.
