“Sorry, ladies. The Food and Drug Administration yesterday turned thumbs down on a hormone patch that aimed to do for women what Viagra did for men - put them in the mood. Saying it does not have enough data yet to ensure the long-term safety of Intrinsa, the Reproductive Health Drugs advisory committee sent drug maker Procter & Gamble back to the lab to do more testing.”

- New York Daily News, 12/3/04


In his “Inside the Beltway” column, John McCaslin reported yesterday that the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve no longer accepts “items that have a connection to violence” for its Toys for Tots program. That means the Marines will no longer accept donations of toy guns or knives. However, retired Maj. Brian A. Murray, vice president of operations, says this decision is not due to “political correctness.” I understand he even said it with a straight face.

BRUSHFIRE ALERT: If you’d like to wish Maj. Murray a Merry Christmas, you can reach him at:


“A couple of years ago Target opened one of their big box stores in our neighborhood and since it opened I’ve done a lot of my shopping there. But no more. Target has told the Salvation Army it can no longer set up its Christmas kettles at its store entrances. And that’s good enough for me. I’ll go do my shopping elsewhere.”

- Lyn Nofziger’s “Musings,” 12/3/04


“We receive an increasing number of solicitation inquiries from nonprofit organizations and groups each year and determined that if we continue to allow the Salvation Army to solicit, then it opens the door to any other groups that wish to solicit our guests. While some of our guests may welcome the opportunity to support their favorite charity or cause, allowing these organizations to solicit means that Target would also have to permit solicitation by organizations whose causes or behavior may be unacceptable to our guests.”

“Abuse was rampant in the oil-for-food program. Senate investigators believe more that $21 billion may have gone back to Saddam's regime. Some of those funds may be financing the insurgency we face today. . . . Obviously it is time for (Kofi Annan) to go.” - Columnist R. Emmett Tyrrell Jr.

“United Nations Secretary-General Kofi Annan should resign. On his watch, the United Nations finds itself in the biggest scandal in its checkered history.” - Columnist Joseph Perkins

“It’s time for Kofi Annan to step down. The massive scope of this debacle demands nothing less.” - Sen. Norm Coleman, Minnesota Republican

“Sen. John Ensign (R-Nev.) is calling on United Nations Secretary-General Kofi Annan to step down over the growing U.N. oil-for-food scandal.” - CNS News, 12/3/04

JOIN the growing list of folks calling for anti-American Kofi Annan to step down by signing our online petition to the Secretary-General urging him to resign. Just visit:


“This morning on CNN, Soledad O'Brien asked Democratic operative Doug Hadaway what he thought about suggestions that Kofi Annan should resign. Hadaway, you will recall, was one of Al Gore's closest advisors during the 2000 elections. Well, did Hadaway actually address whether or not Annan should resign at the UN? Of course not! He said that George Bush should resign because of all the controversies over Halliburton! Yup, you got it! The question is about Kofi Annan and the oil-for-food scandal, and this Democrat hack answers with Halliburton! Gets old after a while, doesn't it?”

- Talk show host Neal Boortz


“When House Republicans blocked the intelligence overhaul bill two weeks ago, some congressional Republicans say they were showing President Bush he will split the party if he goes ahead with his broader immigration-reform plan.

“‘It would cause a break in the party that would be extremely unhealthy for the party,’ said Rep. Tom Tancredo, Colorado Republican and chairman of the Congressional Immigration Reform Caucus. ‘I can tell you right now, the feelings are deep. This is not a superficial argument with the president. We were all willing to shut up during the campaign. We were not going to attack the president. But the campaign is over with and the gloves are off on this issue." Mr. Tancredo said….

“Not everyone thinks the Republican Party is divided on immigration. ‘I don't know that there's a split,’ said Ken Mehlman, who ran Mr. Bush's campaign and likely will be the next chairman of the Republican National Committee.”

- Washington Times, 12/3/04


Do you think there is a serious divide between many Republican Party leaders and a majority of Republican grassroots voters over the immigration issue?
