Heh. Runs in the Family.
My Way News – Chelsea Clinton Guards Her Words
It’s one thing for Hillary Rodham Clinton’s campaign to turn down interview requests for the candidate’s daughter, Chelsea. But can’t a 9-year-old reporter catch a break?
Sydney Rieckhoff, a Cedar Rapids fourth grader and “kid reporter” for Scholastic News, has posed questions to seven Republican and Democratic presidential hopefuls as they’ve campaigned across Iowa this year. But when she approached the 27-year-old Chelsea after a campaign event Sunday, she got a different response.
“Do you think your dad would be a good ‘first man’ in the White House?” Sydney asked, but Chelsea brushed her question aside.
“I’m sorry, I don’t talk to the press and that applies to you, unfortunately. Even though I think you’re cute,” Chelsea told the pint-sized journalist.
Charming Young Lady.
I guess I’d be crabby too, if my Mom was a closet Lesbian. (Did I say that? )

I Don’t Know’ If People Are ‘Born’ Gay, But It’s A ‘Choice’ To Act Gay
On NBC’s Meet The Press this morning, host Tim Russert asked former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee if he believed “people are born gay or choose to be gay?” “I don’t know whether people are born that way,” responded Huckabee, “but one thing I know, that the behavior one practices is a choice.”
Huckabee conceded that “people who are gay say that they’re born that way,” but added that he believed that “how we behave and how we carry out that behavior” is more important.
This is freaking crazy. You can’t get elected saying crap like this anymore. This is outright Anti-Gay Propaganda.
Here’s the Video:
If Jesus freak boy wants to be taken seriously. He’d better get off of the nonsense. Because back in the 1980′s when this Nation was still someone Conservative, you could say stuff like this, In this day and age, Not so much.
Intolerance will only get you ignored.
You’d think this idiot would know this. But then again, we are talking about Huckabee.
This is the same guy who got his kid out of trouble for killing a dog and also released a known killer.
I find stories like this quite amusing.
Times defends hiring conservative Kristol – Michael Calderone – Politico.com
The New York Times’ hiring of Weekly Standard editor Bill Kristol to write for its op-ed page caused a frenzy in the liberal blogosphere Friday night, with threats of canceling subscriptions and claims that the Gray Lady had been hijacked by neo-cons.
What is about Liberals and intolerance for free speech? I mean, do liberals feel that threatened by this person? Amazing.
The Editor of NYT agrees:
Rosenthal told Politico shortly after the official announcement Saturday that he fails to understand “this weird fear of opposing views.”
“The idea that The New York Times is giving voice to a guy who is a serious, respected conservative intellectual — and somehow that’s a bad thing,” Rosenthal added. “How intolerant is that?”
I agree. While I might not agree with all of what Kristol says or believes, I think that trying to repress someone’s views is totally wrong. Kristol has a right to speak his mind, Just like Ann Coulter, Keith Olbermann and the rest of the political talkers out there.
This sort of goes along with that theory of both Political parties being intolerant of dissent. This happens on both sides, all the time.
McClatchy Washington Bureau | 12/30/2007 | Edwards surges, Huckabee’s bubble bursts
John Edwards has clawed his way into contention to win Iowa’s caucuses on Thursday in the first vote for the Democratic presidential nomination, gaining strength even as rivals Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama have lost ground, according to a new McClatchy-MSNBC poll.
I have an idea as to why Edwards has moved up. I believe people want change. Hillary, to some, does not represent change, but rather the continuing of the Clinton Administration. I don’t think America wants to see Clinton 2.0.
However, because I am fair, America also wants a President who is honest. Edwards speaks a Populist message, all the while living in a multi-million dollar mansion. This strikes me as being hypocritical.
However, in the scheme of things, Edwards is most likely seen as the lesser of two evils.

Bhutto’s son to lead her party – CNN.com
Benazir Bhutto’s 19-year-old son will succeed her as chairman of the Pakistan People’s Party, which will take part in upcoming elections, officials announced Sunday.
Bilawal Zardari, speaking in English at a news conference, said: "I am thankful for the CEC (Central Election Commission) for imposing their trust in me as chairman of the Pakistan People’s Party."
"Like all chairmen of the PPP, I will stand as the symbol of the federation. The party’s long and historic struggle for democracy will continue with renewed vigor, and I stand committed to the stability of the federation.
"My mother always said democracy is the best revenge.
I just wonder, is he going to partake in the corruption that his Mother was so infamous for? I am amazed that the Liberal media and even some of the more Conservative media has painted this woman as some sort of martyr. Only thing good about her was that she was against terrorism. Nothing more.
The only reason she came back was because of all the problems the country was having. I don’t see her as the martyred saint, as some do.
An Interesting story on The Politico. It asks a very interesting question.
Can Huck hang on?
Quite frankly, the short answer is, No.
Why? Because Huckabee represents the molded over, wore out, Christian coalition type of politician. The type the wants to take the United States Government and turn it unto a Theocracy. Which was not what the founding fathers of this nation had in mind, when they founded this nation of ours.
The second reason is, he made a very fatal mistake. He went after some of his critics, who were, for the most part, staples within the Republican Party. One doesn’t do this and win an election.
Thirdly, Is his past, I must admit, that I was shocked, when I read about this guys past.
It will not surprise me, if Mitt Romney blazes past this guy and he ends up dropping out of the race.
