The recall was even more impressive in light of the funding disparity: $540k for the recallers v. $3 million for the gun grabbers. Kudos to the voters in Pueblo & El Paso counties.
14 Principled Anti-War Celebrities Who May Have Been Kidnapped
Puritans demand that Carl's is cited for providing the alcohol in 3, 2, 1...
How did the human race ever survive without the Bloombergs, Michele Obamas, and David Caddells to protect us from ourselves? Eating chocolate's like ingesting alcohol, weed, coke, & smack - simultaneously. Who knew? I'm sure I'm at death's door. Knew I shouldn't have had that mocha almond fudge ice cream last night.
Am I the only one who rolled their eyes when Michele Obama presumed to lecture Gabby Douglas about her diet? That girl probably burns more calories in an hour than the rest of us do in a day. Some people need to mind their own business.
You state that "[Maureen] Dowd, in my judgment, has never gone to the extremes embraced by [Ann] Coulter to defend her ideology."
On May 14th of 2003, Maureen Dowd published in her syndicated column (entitled "Osama's Offspring") her critique of a speech delivered by President Bush nine days earlier. Ms. Dowd wrote:
"Busy chasing off Saddam, the president and vice president had told us that Al Qaeda was spent. 'Al Qaeda is on the run,' President Bush said last week. 'That group of terrorists who attacked our country is slowly but surely being decimated... They're not a problem anymore.'"
Dowd went on to sarcastically and derisively trash the President for writing off the Al Qaeda threat, just days prior to Al Qaeda executing a major bombing in Saudi Arabia.
Unknown to you, evidently, as well as to all those who are sufficiently lazy to depend upon the liberal-enabling mainstream media for their news and information, Dowd deliberately edited the President's remarks to completely change their meaning. The president NEVER asserted that Al Qaeda was "not a problem anymore."
Here is the UN-DOWD-EDITED version of the President's remarks:
"Al Qaeda is on the run. That group of terrorists who attacked our country is slowly but surely being decimated. Right now, about half of all the top Al Qaeda operatives are either jailed or dead. In either case, they're not a problem anymore."
The President merely stated the obvious that only those Al Qaeda operatives who had been CAPTURED OR KILLED were not a problem any more. It was too obvious and too truthful for Ms. Dowd, so she spliced & diced the President's comments until they were sufficiently distorted to be used against him.
If the editorialists whose work appears in the Steamboat Pilot & Today are a refection, as you say, of "who we are," then those of you who read Dowd are calculating and duplicitous liars.
Are you comfortable with that reflection? If not, why do you not lobby the Steamboat Pilot & Today to cancel Ms. Dowd's column?
