CONDITION UNCHANGED

“Arafat remains in stable condition after dying in a Paris hospital.”

- James Taranto, Best of the Web, 11/12/04

THE BEAST IS DEAD

“The beast is dead, and the world can only be glad he'll stay that way. . . . (Yasser Arafat) has gone where there are no more Jews to slay, and praise of any kind only because he is dead is an indecent betrayal of the thousands who were blown apart at his whim. A murderous scoundrel is gone, and good riddance.”

- Wes Pruden, “Pruden On Politics,” 11/12/04

THE FATHER OF ALL TERRORISTS

“What made Yasir Arafat’s final days appalling was not the farcical prevarications about whether he were dead or alive, nor the soap-opera quarrel between his wife and his political cronies; it was that so evil a man commanded so much respect. . . . Why do the West’s politicians hold in such high esteem a man who unleashed a ferocious campaign of international terrorism that, across a span of forty years, has claimed the lives of thousands of Israeli, Lebanese, Jordanian, Palestinian, and American civilians?”

- Elan Journo of the Ayn Rand Institute

UN: YASSER, THAT’S MY BABY

“Kofi Annan ordered United Nations flags at half-staff yesterday in tribute to lately departed Palestinian supremo Yasser Arafat. . . . Say what you will about Mr. Annan's decision, it is certainly true that for 30 years the U.N. did what it could to elevate Arafat from terrorist to statesman. That's something Americans might bear in mind when next told the war on terror must be conducted under U.N. auspices.”

- Wall Street Journal, 11/12/04

DEPENDS ON YOUR DEFINITION OF “MANDATE”

“All the talk from Democrats about how the 51% of the vote won by President Bush isn't a mandate raises an interesting question. Could any Democratic presidents be said to have won a mandate? After all, the only ones who ever got 51% were Andrew Jackson, FDR, and Lyndon Johnson.”

- John Fund, Political Diary, 11/12/04

SHUT UP, HOLLYWOOD

“Celebrities gain stature through show-biz popularity. To take that popularity into the political realm is an act of bad faith with their audiences. We pay them to entertain us, not to shoot their mouths off about issues they know nothing about.”

- Columnist Steven Vincent

ANOTHER MYTH EXPLODED

"George Bush increased his vote in 2004 over 2000 by an average of 3.1 percent nationwide. . . . In the 11 states in which the gay marriage referendums were held, Bush increased his vote by less than he did in the 39 states that did not have the referendum. The great anti-gay surge was pure fiction."

- Columnist Charles Krauthammer

PUTTING DEMS ON NOTICE

“It seems that Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist may have suddenly located his gonads. He's a doctor, so one would expect it would have happened sooner. He's warning the Democrats that any filibusters of Bush's judicial nominees will not be tolerated. It's about time.”

- Talk show host Neal Boortz

GOING NUCLEAR

“…(S)ome Republicans are insisting (Sen. Frist) should go further and simply have Vice President Dick Cheney, the presiding officer of the Senate, rule that filibusters against judicial nominees violate the separation of powers and are unconstitutional. Mr. Cheney would need only a majority of Senators to sustain his ruling.

“Senator Arlen Specter, who is scheduled to take up the gavel of the Judiciary Committee in January, has been having discussions with fellow Senators and is close to agreeing that this so-called ‘nuclear option’ may be necessary despite Democratic threats to shut down all Senate business if it is employed. The showdown is likely to occur in January, when the new more Republican Senate convenes.”

- John Fund, Political Diary, 11/12/04

BEHIND CLOSED DOORS

“If you haven’t yet written me about the chairmanship of the Judiciary Committee, don’t (please)!!! My mailbox is overflowing!!! We are addressing the issue appropriately within the institution of the Senate in a respectful and appropriate way that will be beneficial to the President.”

- Majority Leader Bill Frist’s PAC newsletter yesterday

LAST OF THE GREAT, WHITE RINO’S

“Arlen Specter is the last of a dying breed of northeastern liberal Republicans. He is the most visible and trouble-making RINO (Republican in Name Only) in the Senate. He is captured by the trial lawyers. He has one of the worst voting records on fiscal issues, according to the National Taxpayers Union and the Citizens Against Government Waste. He opposed the first Bush tax cut. This is a Republican? . . . . If he gets the (Judiciary Committee) chairmanship, conservatives will spend six years cursing that day.”

- Steve Moore, Club for Growth

HATCH PREDICTS SPECTER WILL PREVAIL

“But if Specter gets his chairmanship - and Orrin Hatch, who's rarely wrong on such matters, says he will - I'd score one for the moderates and a sign that Bush sees the peril in delivering the court to his right wing.”

- Columnist Margaret Carlson

INCUMBENT PROTECTION

“There are 435 Members of the House of Representatives, but only seven incumbents lost last week. The political class would like us to think that those numbers represent the voters' satisfaction with their Congressmen. But everyone knows better. . . . Blame the perks of incumbency, and blame gerrymandering especially.

"The Founders required elections every two years because they designed the House to be the political body most responsive to the public. But politicians, through their ability to draw their own districts, have rigged the system to undermine those intentions and hold on to power...

"If Republicans are now opportunistically using their majorities to reverse Democratic gerrymanders, then good-governance liberals aren't helping by making money their reform holy grail. While the politicians have built safe seats, John McCain and his friends on the left have peddled campaign finance reform as the panacea. But if they really care about making elections more competitive, they'll drop the fool's errand of trying to separate money from politics and instead push initiatives that would turn redistricting over to nonpartisan panels, as in Iowa and Washington state."

- Wall Street Journal, 11/12/04

STUPIDITY VIRUS STRIKES IN MILWAUKEE

“A high school band fund-raising effort has been halted by School District officials because the fishing kits that were to be sold contain 6-inch filet knives. Knives are not allowed on school property, and what started out as a donation from a parent has turned into a sticky situation.

“...School Board President George Sloan said he's baffled why anyone would organize a fund-raising project that involved knives as one of the items being sold. ‘You can't have an arsenal on school property. And 2,000 knives is an arsenal,’ Sloan said. ‘It was meant as a good thing. But it was an act of extreme dumbness.’

“...Ted Lind, president of the Wisconsin Council of Sport Fishing Organizations, said the fuss over the knives is silly. He said he opposes allowing knives on school property but sees nothing wrong with selling them to raise money for a worthwhile project. ‘It sounds good if it's getting the kids involved in fishing,’ Lind said. ‘Let's face it, these knives are everywhere. You can walk into any sports store in the country and buy a 6-inch filet knife.’"

- Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel, 11/11/04

STUPIDITY VIRUS STRIKES IN SO-CAL

“Cartwheels and handstands have gotten an 11-year-old girl temporarily bounced out of her Los Angeles-area school,” reports Reuters on Thursday. Deirdre Faegre, who has been doing gymnastics for five years, was told by school principal Denise Patton that she could injure herself or that other children trying to imitate her might get hurt. Deirdre’s dad calls the suspension absurd, noting that students are allowed to play basketball and other sports during lunch break. "Contact sports, apparently, are fine,” he tells Reuters. “But this one is so dangerous it requires the cartwheel cops.”

Hello fellow fisherman,

Did you know that 16% of the U.S. population goes fishing at least 16 days a year?

Did you also know that over 75% of the nations fishermen do not fish during "prime time"; fish feeding hours?

Those precious few moments before twilight can be absolutely magical. Even up until 11pm at night, the largest predators of any species feed ravenously.

Don't believe me? Check out Daniel Eggertsen's story, and a picture of a couple of his catches here : "Evening Secrets plus more"

I want you to do me a favor and try it out so I can see what you think of it, and if it works for you as well as it did for me.

You will be one of the first to try it out.

Gone Fishin',

Neil
