Increasingly Irrelevant and Other Stuff


1) Bush's Spokesman's response to Carter:
"I think it's sad that President Carter's reckless personal criticism is out there," Fratto told reporters. "I think it's unfortunate. And I think he is proving to be increasingly irrelevant with these kinds of comments."
"Increasingly irrelevant" sums up Jimmy Carter pretty well. Its just too bad he doesn't realize it.


2) Wordsmith wrote an excellent post on Bush & Blair, Roosevelt & Churchill:
"The Roosevelt-Churchill connection set the tone for a series of relationships between ensuing American Presidents and British Prime Ministers -- Reagan and Thatcher, Bush and Blair -- who were brought together by common interests and shared values. As the wars of the 21st century take shape, George W. Bush and Tony Blair are working in the shadow and style of the Great Men of World War II."- Jon Meacham

3) The Half Hour News Hour has returned. It started airing new episodes last sunday. Make sure you tune in each Sunday night right after Hannity's show at 9C/10E.

Last night my favorite parts were the John Edwards' bit and this part about Al Gore:
"Instead of Bibles a hotel in California is now placing a copy of Al Gore's global warming book "An Inconvient Truth" in every room. According to research, it is the only thing hotel guests won't steal."



4) Jordin Sparks (my favorite) has made it to the final 2. Either her or Blake will be the next American Idol. My kids were pretty happy since these were our 2 favorites. I did feel bad though because a friend of mine was a big Melinda fan.

5) Jerry Falwell: Say hello to Ronald Reagan! Ann's column on Jerry Falwell had some good points, here is an excerpt:
"No man in the last century better illustrated Jesus' warning that "All men will hate you because of me" than the Rev. Jerry Falwell, who left this world on Tuesday. Separately, no man better illustrates my warning that it doesn't pay to be nice to liberals.

He was such a good Christian that back when we used to be on TV together during Clinton's impeachment, I sometimes wanted to say to him, "Step aside, reverend – let the mean girl handle this one." (Why, that guy probably prayed for Clinton!)"
