Should we have taken out Saddam during Gulf War 1?
Well, it would be better than liturgical dance
At the time, I thought we should have, but figured Bush the First knew what he was doing. This article makes an interesting case that he made the correct decision.

Greatest. Idea. Ever.
Doctorow Booed off Stage
Movie on Eisenhower
I've said it before and I'll say it again: Peggy Noonan is just about the best writer there is today.
The movie sounds interesting, but the most interesting part of the article is:
As a Hollywood conservative, Chetwynd has long had a touchy relationship with the press. During a news conference last year for his previous docudrama Showtime's DC 9/11, about how the White House handled that terrible day the murmurs of disapproval I'd been hearing from colleagues about Chetwynd's pro-Bush sympathies came to a head during one remarkable exchange:
Question: "You did contribute to [Bush's] campaign?"
Chetwynd: "Yeah, the limit was $1,000... Would it make a better film if I'd given $1,000 to Gore?"
Question: "Because it would show less potential bias."
My fellow hack was absolutely serious; if you'd donated money to Bush, you are therefore biased toward Bush, but if you'd donated money to Gore you are not therefore biased against Bush. Supporting Gore was just the normal default position, as everyone knows. Chaw!
Some Yankee fans?
The Olympic committee is telling American athletes not to wave the
American flag at this years Olympics because it might be seen
as boasting. Other countries can wave their flags, just not us.
Which is ironic because of us a lot of these countries would be
waving a flag different from what they are now.
We have the same problem
"If people of all different faiths -- Christians, Jews, Muslims,
Buddhists, Hindus, Yankee fans -- spent some time together,
talking AND listening, maybe... we'd all begin to see that,
despite our differences, deep down inside all of us, except for
some Yankee fans, are human beings, riding together in the buggy
of life." --Dave Barry

Woman gives birth to her 15th child
I love Chuck Asay
God bless them for being so open to life, but is it horrible that I find hilarious her husband's name is Jim Bob?
Broomhilda's a liberal?

So help me, I'm quoting Martin Luther
"If I profess with the loudest voice and clearest exposition every
portion of the truth of God except precisely that little point
which the world and the devil are at the moment attacking, I am
not confessing Christ, however boldly I may be professing Christ.
Where the battle rages, there the loyalty of the soldier is proved,
and to be steady on all the battle front besides, is mere flight
and disgrace if he flinches at that point." --Martin Luther
