Wrongdoers? Creditors? Beware!
Soon this shall be mine: (AFP) “…scientists have finally come up with a workable design for an invisibility cloak.”

Meet the Republicans! Now surrender peacefully.
In NRO’s The Corner, March 31, Ramesh Ponnuru noted an appearance by GOP presidential candidates with an outfit called Club for Growth, which endorses those candidates who promote, among other things…
-- Making the Bush tax cuts permanent
-- Death tax repeal
-- Cutting and limiting government spending
-- Social Security reform with personal retirement accounts—
-- Expanding free trade
-- Legal reform to end abusive lawsuits
-- Replacing the current tax code
-- School choice
-- Regulatory reform and deregulation

The Crane cited is Ed Crane, president of the Cato Institute, which seeks “…to broaden the parameters of public policy debate to allow consideration of the traditional American principles of limited government, individual liberty, free markets and peace.”

Ponnuru wrote: “Crane says he was disappointed with Romney's answer to his question the other night. Crane asked if Romney believed the president should have the authority to arrest U.S. citizens with no review. Romney said he would want to hear the pros and cons from smart lawyers before he made up his mind. Crane said that he had asked Giuliani the same question a few weeks ago. The mayor said that he would want to use this authority infrequently.”

Pelosi in Syria!
Cheney called her trip “bad behavior.” Bush said it sent “mixed signals.”

Leon Panetta and Jim Baker have been to Syria – Baker ten times – for the Iraq Study Group. Senator Bill Nelson went there, and representatives David Hobson, Frank Wolf, Joe Pitts, and Robert Aderholt. Pelosi went there two weeks after a trip by Ellen Sauerbrey, US assistant secretary of state for refugees and migration. Deputy Secretary of State Richard Armitage went there in 2005. John Kerry? Christopher Dodd? Been there. Last year. Darryl Issa went there post-Pelosi. Everybody and his dog, it seems, has gone to Syria. So what’s the big deal with Pelosi?

Drudge strikes again!
Drudge posted an “exclusive” that CNN reporter Michael Ware heckled Republican Senators John McCain and Lindsay Graham at a Baghdad press conference. Footage of the press conference does not show heckling of any form, and reinforces Ware’s claim that not only didn’t he heckle, he didn’t even ask a question.

The blog called Red State, undaunted, wrote that the story is “…indicative of a broader infection. So many reporters are acting as third-rate activists, childishly mocking that which doesn't fit their model. Their model does not allow for improvement in Iraq. Their minds cannot grasp anything but quagmire and defeat....”

So even though Michael Ware did not in fact childishly mock, he’s still guilty of childish mocking. QED.

Always Rosie!
Rosie O’Donnell did it again on The View. Apparently she hinted that 9/11 was an inside job, a scheme hatched by Cheney (or somebody) to destroy incriminating Enron documents (or something) housed in the World Trade Center. She said, "I do believe it's the first time in history that fire has melted steel. I do believe that it defies physics for the World Trade Center Building 7, which collapsed in on itself, it is impossible for a building to fall the way it fell without explosives being involved.”

This is ridiculous, of course. The first time in history that fire has melted steel? What? Steel is created through melting. Besides, did the steel in the World Trade Center even melt? My understanding is it warped and collapsed. Should Rosie be fired? No. Should she take some physics classes? Yes.

A lot of the 9/11 conspiracy theorists point to the fact that jet fuel's combustion temperature is lower than the melting point of steel. This just reinforces my suspicion, originally formed while reading moon landing conspiracy sights, that a lot of conspiracy theories are advanced by people with an extremely weak grasp of basic science.

Neonazicons? These people can't even tie their damn shoes, or conduct a war in Iraq. What makes you think they could cover up the deaths of 1600 people in service of.... what?

An infection that causes mis-reporting on reporters? I just hope it doesn't extend any higher!
(reporting on reporting on reporters, for instance)
