January 22, 2003
By

I just saw a poll with the following question: “Will Roe v. Wade be overturned during George W. Bush’s presidency?” To me the answer is “quite likely.” On reflection, that answer surprised the heck out of me, but is the only conclusion one can draw in light of potential Supreme Court appointments.

It’s all so predictable. Of course, Patty Murray has to march in a “MLK Day” parade which just happens to be a shrill “anti-war” demonstration. And the Seattle PI has to give us a classic example of overt liberal media bias, while the Seattle Times has to be only slightly more objective.

Georgia Republicans are looking at undoing some of the gerrymandering Democrats did when they controlled the governorship and state Senate. Here’s hoping Texas does the same soon.

Yet another article on how ANWR drilling could pass with just 50 votes in the Senate as part of a budget reconciliation bill. As I’ve said before, we have a good chance of rounding up 50 votes.

Iowa political guru David Yepsen lays out the reasons the Iowa caucuses might hurt the Democrats by boosting far-left peacenik candidates: Iowa ranks 45th in per-capita levels of defense spending and 48th in number of active-duty military stationed in the state.

Uncertainty And Approval Ratings

0
January 21, 2003
By

One reason the president’s job approval ratings have been dipping lately is because no one likes uncertainty. It’s like the period last August when speculation about Iraq dominated the airwaves, while the White House kept mum and the president’s ratings dropped. The White House has a propensity for keeping its plans quiet and springing...

Seymour Hersh says in the New Yorker that the Bush administration isn’t going to stop with Iraq. Kim Jong Il had better watch his back: One American intelligence official who has attended recent White House meetings cautioned against relying on the day-to-day Administration statements that emphasize a quick settlement of the dispute.

So the Democratic presidential hopefuls are trudging through Iowa, trying to impress 2004 Iowa caucus goers in cattle calls. If I were a Democrat looking at these prospects, I’d be terribly depressed. What a stinking pile of dour, boring, conventionally liberal candidates. Sheesh. And all of them are vowing to repeal some or all...

After watching the “anti-war” protests on C-SPAN, I wished that the major TV networks had carried them, so that people could see what freaks these protesters are. Now even arch-leftie Eric Alterman agrees that the protesters are freaks.

By

It’s quite likely that the Supreme Court will strike down the Michigan affirmative action programs as unconstitutional, based on the fact that race-neutral methods for achieving “diversity” are available.
