No matter what your Marxist, lesbian, long-toothed, community college history teacher sporting a bad haircut, stretch pants and stale coffee breath says, the vast majority of the founding fathers of our great nation were deeply committed Christians. I?m talkin? deep.
When Republicans Wednesday night rushed through a $6.9 billion restoration of defense funds requested by President Bush, they were forestalling a suspected effort by Sen. John Kerry to polish his national security record by seeking extra money for the military.
I'm trying to gird my loins - how does one do that by the way? - for the campaign everyone says will get "even nastier" between now and November.
The House of Representatives voted 276 to 139 Wednesday to pass the Personal Responsibility in Food Consumption Act -- also known as the "cheeseburger bill" -- to prohibit overweight Americans from suing the food industry for their avoirdupois.
In a press release issued the day before the House approved the Personal Responsibility in Food Consumption Act by a 2-to-1 margin, he said the bill "is surely premature, because there has been only one obesity lawsuit, and it was dismissed by a federal judge."
Look. I know it is shooting French in a barrel. But when yet another insufferable penseur -- first Chirac, then de Villepin, now the editor of Le Monde -- starts lecturing Americans on how they ought to conduct themselves in the world, the rules of decorum are suspended.
William Safire, the New York Times' in-house "conservative" ? who endorsed Bill Clinton in 1992, like so many conservatives ? was sure Mel Gibson's movie "The Passion of the Christ" would incite anti-Semitic violence. Thus far, the pogroms have failed to materialize.
In a recent strip, two young black characters considered renaming what they call the "Most Embarrassing Black People" award. One character suggested calling the award the "Larry Elder." My, my.
When Sen. John Kerry was interviewed on foreign policy in Houston last Friday by New York Times reporters, he made news by declaring that as president he "would have been prepared to send troops immediately" to save Jean-Bertrand Aristide as president of Haiti.

Turn on the Korea Central News Agency in recent days, and you?d be likely to hear John Kerry?s foreign policy speeches receiving lavish praise normally reserved for the man who runs the broadcaster?and pretty much everything else in North Korea: Kim Jong-Il.
In the absence of any public evidence that he has met with several foreign leaders recently, the burden of proof should be on Sen. Kerry to prove that he didn't just make up this little story that he told a small group of Florida contributors.
It does not diminish the Herculean effort in Iraq, the sacrifice of young men and women fighting for the freedom of others that they enjoy or the political price being paid by the Bush administration to question whether the interim constitution signed in Baghdad on Monday (March 8) will end the post-war fighting and establish respect for the human rights of all.
Purim reminds Jews, and the world, of the ever-present threat posed by today's Amalekites. Purim is not about dress up or drinking, noise making or gift giving. It is about recognizing that evil still exists and that God obligates mankind to obliterate it.
When it comes to race, separate is inherently unequal. Gender is different.
With Saddam out of his spider hole, and now regime change at Martha Stewart's empire, I dunno, I just feel safer somehow.
As usual, the word from the Middle East recently has been a mixture of good news, bad news. One piece of good news is that the Iraqi Governing Council has signed an interim constitution establishing a framework for democratic self-rule.
On March 16th, 2004, the UNC-Wilmington Women?s Resource Center (WRC) will be hosting a speech by the Guerilla Girls. This group of anonymous feminists will be paid $6000 of public funds to dress up like apes, throw bananas at the audience, and campaign against George W. Bush.
You could almost think that Rosie O'Donnell is an angry heterosexual on a selfless mission.
There is a growing backlash against outsourcing--sending domestic work to foreign businesses--that erupted in the Senate last week, where anti-outsourcing legislation was adopted on a 70 to 26 vote. Opponents of outsourcing cheered, but investors are becoming aware that these actions threaten profits and stock prices.
