SADDLE UP!

With the final results in from Louisiana over the weekend, the 2004 campaign is now officially behind us (except for that little gubernatorial race out in Washington). Time to start preparing for 2006.

Hello, Sunshine State readers. I’ll be in Florida in January for some other business, so if any of you might be interested in having me conduct a grassroots activist/candidate training seminar while I’m in the neighborhood, let me know. I’m looking at possibly Tampa, Ft. Lauderdale and/or Jacksonville. Maybe Orlando. Will entertain other possibilities. Shoot me an email to chuck@citizenoutreach.com and we’ll see what we can put together.

KOFI BREAK


“Kofi Annan has had better weeks. On Monday, the UN secretary general woke up to a Wall Street Journal column by Glenn Harlan Reynolds, publisher of the influential InstaPundit website, urging that he be replaced by Vaclav Havel, the much-admired former president of the Czech Republic. In The New York Times, op-ed eminence William Safire (wrote that the) corruption enveloping the UN will not begin to dissipate until Annan resigns…

“Meanwhile, the latest National Review was out, with its cover photo of Annan and the headline, in large red letters: ‘You're Fired!’ An editorial inside insisted that ‘Annan should either resign, if he is honorable, or be removed, if he is not,’ while an essay by Nile Gardiner, a former aide to British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, explained why ‘Kofi's hour is up.’ With his record, Gardiner observed, ‘if Annan were the CEO of a Fortune 500 company...he would have been forced to resign months ago.’"

- Boston Globe columnist Jeff Jacoby ( EDITOR’S NOTE: If you haven’t done so already, please sign our online petition to Secretary-General Annan urging him to resign at: http://www.chuckmuth.com/petition )

MINORITY LEADER SLAMS BLACK JUSTICE

“I think that (Justice Clarence Thomas) has been an embarrassment to the Supreme Court. I think that his opinions are poorly written. I don't--I just don't think that he's done a good job as a Supreme Court justice.”

- Incoming Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.), “Meet the Press,” 12/5/04

RESULTS OF LAST “SURVEY SAYS!”

Question: Who should President Bush nominate to be the next chief justice of the Supreme Court when Justice Rehnquist retires?

41% - Justice Clarence Thomas
48% - Justice Antonin Scalia
10% - Somebody else

IMMIGRATION CONFLAGRATION

“A fierce fight is brewing among Republicans over President Bush’s plans for sweeping immigration reform during his second term, pitting one of the president’s highest priorities against a determined conservative opposition on Capitol Hill. . . . The immigration debate has awakened deep divisions among Republicans, between some members of Congress and a president they fear will drift too far to the center in his quest for a lasting legacy.”

- Baltimore Sun, 12/5/04

BLIND...OR IN DENIAL?

“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

GOING TO POT

“Is growing marijuana in your own home for your own medical use ‘interstate commerce,’ as the government claims. I think the answer is clear: No, it isn’t. Therefore, Congress has no power to restrict...personal consumption activity, no matter how much you or I or a majority of voters disapprove of the California law that permits it.”

- Columnist Maggie Gallagher

‘BAMA BACKS STATE’S RIGHTS

“Alabama, which has some of the nation's toughest drug laws, has become an unlikely ally of California on medical marijuana use. In a legal brief filed with the U.S. Supreme Court, which heard arguments Monday on California's medical marijuana law, Alabama Attorney General Troy King said states, not the federal government, should have the right to decide drug-control policies.
“’I could not disagree more with the public policy that underlies the California law. I think it's flawed. I think it's bad public policy,’ Mr. King said in an interview. ‘But if somebody can go in and tell California you can't regulate drugs the way you want to regulate them in California, the next step is they could come to Alabama and tell us we can't do it.’"
