Townhall Top Ten - March 11-17

Posted: Mar 18, 2007 12:05 AM

The Media, Iraq, Gingrich, Global Warming, Gays, and Jihadists. And a lot of satire from Mike Adams. That's what readers were talking about during the week that was -- March 11-17, 2007

#10. A Tale of Two Crimes
by Michael Barone
"History will be kind to me," Winston Churchill once said, "for I intend to write it." Indeed, he did. His multiple-volume histories of the two world wars are still widely read, though discounted by professional historians as incomplete and in some ways misleading.

#9. Jesus Was No Leftist
by Dennis Prager
Democratic presidential candidate and former Sen. John Edwards told an interviewer from the religious website that Jesus "would be disappointed" at how little Americans help the destitute who live among them. Jesus, Mr. Edwards said, "would be appalled" at our selfishness.

#8. All the News That's Fit to Pay For?
by Michelle Malkin
The New York Times prides itself on ethical journalism. The company boasts a 57-page "handbook of values and practices" for its newsroom. "Our greatest strength," the paper intones, "is the authority and reputation of the Times."

#7. Why Christians Embrace 'Gay' Porn Stars
by Kevin McCullough
Diabolical liberals are once again showing their disdain for homosexuals, and their lack of love for those who struggle with sexual sin. They are adverse to truth about sexual behavior. And when a sexual sinner is brave enough to say so, liberals become the most homophobic mouth foamers the universe has ever seen.

by Thomas Sowell
The enthusiastic reception given to a speech by Newt Gingrich at a recent meeting of the Conservative Political Action Committee has revived speculation that he may enter the presidential nomination race, after all.

#5. In Washington, it's always the year of the rat
by Ann Coulter
Democrats have leapt on reports of mold, rats and bureaucratic hurdles at Walter Reed Army Medical Center as further proof of President George Bush's failed war policies. To the contrary, the problems at Walter Reed are further proof of the Democrats' failed domestic policies -- to wit, the civil service rules that prevent government employees from ever being fired.

#4. Klansman teaching History at Kent State
by Mike Adams
Kent State University now has another problem on its hands. A member of the Ku Klux Klan who just recently was found operating a hate website has now been identified as a history professor at Kent State. The site has been closed but the controversy still looms because of some comments the professor has posted on blogs under the name “Lover of Anglos” while using his Kent State email address.

#3. Julio Pino: Islam’s Most Effeminate Jihadist
by Mike Adams
Julio Pino’s whining, effeminate tone suggests that he is ill prepared for what is about to happen to him in the coming weeks and months. A brief summary of what he can expect follows:

#2. Global Warming Swindle
by Thomas Sowell
Britain's Channel 4 has produced a devastating documentary titled "The Great Global Warming Swindle." It has apparently not been broadcast by any of the networks in the United States. But, fortunately, it is available on the Internet.

#1. How to bomb a gay bath house
by Mike Adams
I’ve been thinking about Ann Coulter a lot lately – a real shocker, I know - and I think I’ve finally found a way to get her out of the hot water she’s in over her recent outing of John Edwards.
