Once a week or so I will probably do a news rundown since too many articles
accumulate that are worth mentioning. The first one is about Mel Gibson's possible new project. As some of you know I am a huge fan of Mel Gibson for many reasons. Braveheart is my favorite movie of all time so I love the Braveheart pictures :-). Anyway, he may be doing a new miniseries on the Holocaust. I can't wait. Because if he has anything to do with it, it will be awesome.
That was my good news. Now onto the other 3 articles that aren't so good. The next one is the rumor that Rumsfeld might leave and that Lieberman would be a good replacement. I can't tell you how much I am repulsed by that thought. As per my post earlier this week I love Rumsfeld and have a lot of respect for him and don't think anyone could do the job near as good as him. And even with that said there are a million people I would pick before Lieberman. I give Lieberman credit for standing up to his own party but thats about where my respect for him ends. You have to be a lot tougher and more conservative than Lieberman to be Secretary of Defense in my opinion. Thank goodness Rumsfeld has already spoken up and said he isn't leaving. Thank God!!
Next is an issue that just irritates me. Joseph Farah is the editor of World Net Daily. I love the website and go there every day for my news. But Farah is an extremist in my opinion. During the 2004 election he upset me numerous times by bashing Bush for not being conservative enough. Here I was working my butt off campaigning for Bush and we had people from our own side actively working against him. He wrote at least one editorial describing why he wouldn't be voting for Bush. It was so disheartening to me because who was he going to vote for that would be better? And in the process he was influencing a lot of people. Anyway, all that to say he has done something that has irritated me again. He is being very critical of W for saying Happy Holidays on the Whitehouse Christmas card instead of Merry Christmas. Give me a break. Do we not have better things to do with our time instead of being so petty? I personally am just very excited to get a Christmas card from the White House each year. Tony Snow was talking about it on his show and was saying how ridiculous it was. It has been the standard of the White House to say Happy Holidays in their cards for many years. I know we are trying to take back Christmas from the ACLU types and I support that but this is a little too much. Relax people.
The last article is more than annoying, it is upsetting. One of my GMWAS award winners is at it again. Michael Schiavo is starting a PAC (Political Action Committee)with Terri's name on it to help liberals get elected. Can we drag Terri's name and memory thru the mud anymore? What another slap in the face to her parents. One can only imagine that she is rolling over in her grave that her name is being used against the very people who wanted to save her life.
