British reparations?

If this is a joke, I don’t get it.

And now a question specific to those in NY

Anyone heading down for CPAC? Anyone heading down to CPAC that has room in their car for me?

Reader participation

I am meeting Senator Brownback tonight. What should I ask him? Be serious here. I know everyone has their problems with various politicians, myself included, but I want to ask him something serious that I actually want answered and not just try to put him on the spot.

Yes, I’m a little late on this

My current favorite song is “Me and Bobby McGee”, the Janis Joplin version.

Please give our government something to do

The individual laws proposed by our obviously useless NY government are ridiculous. But seeing them listed all in one place really highlights their absurdity.

UPDATE: One of the proposed laws on the list is a ban on the “N” word. Robert George writes:

the New York City Council debates the “N-word” and prepares a resolution calling for a moratorium on the use of it. Because, like, you know there is a virtual epidemic of public figures using it in official events. Well, in truth there wasn’t — until yesterday’s New York City Council hearing on the use of the “N”-word. Please.

Looks like I’m not the only one who loves Dick Cheney

*Rush Limbaugh says Dick Cheney is his hero

My own Cheney love is here.

Taco Bell has problems

Rats invade NYC restaurant:

About a dozen rats were having a grand party Friday in a locked KFC/Taco Bell restaurant, scampering around the floor, playing with each other and sniffing for food as they dashed around tables and children’s high chairs.

Onlookers could not keep their eyes away from the jaw-dropping sight — a gang of urban vermin invading a restaurant that had been taking people’s chicken and taco orders just a day earlier. Video of the rats was seen around the world, disseminated on TV stations and the Internet.

I hurt me

Did you hear about the State Senator from South Carolina who said that Barack Obama will drag down the Democratic ticket in ‘08 because he’s black?

“Then everybody else on the ballot is doomed. Every Democratic candidate running on that ticket would lose because he’s black and he’s at the top of the ticket. We’d lose the House, the Senate and the governors and everything. I’m a gambling man. I love Obama. But I’m not going to kill myself.”

I somehow missed his stellar apology:

“If I caused anybody – including myself – any pain about the comments I made earlier, then I want to apologize to myself and to Senator Obama and any of his supporters.”

Emphasis mine.

A short list of not-so-random thoughts

***How could Drew Barrymore be 40? (She’s wearing a bikini at the link so it might not be safe for certain work environments.) I’m not sweating turning 30 in April, not much anyway, but the fact that she’s 40 and hot sure is encouraging.

***I love Dick Cheney:

“My statement was that if we adopt the Pelosi policy, is that we will validate the strategy of al Qaida,” Cheney said. “I said it, and I meant it.”

“I am not sure what part of it that Nancy disagreed with,” Cheney told ABC News during an interview today in Sydney, Australia. “She accused me of questioning her patriotism. I didn’t question her patriotism, I questioned her judgment.”

Cheney said: “The point I made, and I’ll make it again, is that al Qaida functions on the basis that they think they can break our will. That’s their fundamental underlying strategy, that if they can kill enough Americans or cause enough havoc, create enough chaos in Iraq, then we’ll quit and go home.”

“A failed strategy? Let’s see: We didn’t fail when we got rid of Saddam. We didn’t fail when we held elections. We didn’t fail when we got a constitution written. Those are success stories.”

Someone tell me again why he can’t run in ‘08. Remember how he made lunch of Edwards in the debate?

***I love this about my friend Dawn Eden (from an interview with Doublethink about her book “The Thrill of the Chaste”): “She is not at all what you would expect a Christian author who has just finished a book about the virtues of chastity to be like.” I enjoy the unexpected.

***David Weigel of Reason predicts National Review will suck it up and endorse Giuliani “in about a year”. I say they suck it up and endorse John McCain. Doesn’t it kind of suck that no matter who conservatives choose, we’re sucking it up?

***Of the proverbial 7 Deadly Sins, I always thought that laziness was the one I most embodied. Now I am not so sure.

BONUS: ***I like commenters that call me hot.

Oh. Snap.

If Jason Whitlock wasn’t black, there’d be an outcry that his piece on the All-Star game is seriously racist. A taste (Via Conservative Grapevine):

David Stern seriously needs to consider moving the event out of the country for the next couple of years in hopes that young, hip-hop hoodlums would find another event to terrorize. Taking the game to Canada won’t do it. The game needs to be moved overseas, someplace where the Bloods and Crips and hookers and hoes can’t get to it without a passport and plane ticket.

After this weekend, I’m convinced he’s losing the battle. All-Star Weekend Vegas screamed that the NBA is aligned too closely with thugs. Stern is going to have to take drastic measures to break that perception/reality. All-Star Weekend can no longer remain the Woodstock for parolees, wannabe rap artists and baby’s mamas on tax-refund vacations.

That Blogger Party

The Blogger Party is postponed until some point in March. I will keep you all updated. In the meantime, give me suggestions on places that aren’t too loud, expensive or brothel-like.

I love NY

“Right around election 2004, a poll came out showing that Russian-Americans were voting for Bush in record numbers”-Me

“I know, that was my poll”-a man proving that the world is very, very small.
