    I’ll make a comment about Hillary’s remarks: Tough shit, huh? She gets a free pass and there’s nothing you can do about it.

    Mel Gibson on the other hand, that punk-ass should be crucified.

    ah, but the presser is very new stuff. Goldy I’m sure was told exactly when that fake lawsuit from the Bullit heiress (I’m sorry, but I’ve never seen so many rich democrats,; They just keep coming out of the woodworks!) would be rolled out officially. And it seemed a good time to get out of town. don’t deny it.

    Yes, someone taking a vacation in the summer. Very suspicious behavior.

    Of course, earlier, you were claiming he was out of town to avoid the (non-existent) fallout from the Mak report. What sort of pathology leads to your type thinking? Why do you see conspiracy and intrigue where there is none? What color is the sky in your world? Are you and Mel Gibson drinking buddies?

    Hey liberal nutjobs, is this a “Belwether ” race? I seem to recall another certain race in CA that was a “Belwether” too!

    Art, it’s nice to have your comment, but why isn’t Goldy a big enough boy to respond for himself? If he’s proud of what he did, he should come right out and say so. Frankly, right now I’m guessing he’s red-faced at the publicity. But would love to hear directly from the Horse’s mouth.

    “Anyone who feels certain that Republicans will keep their majority in the House or that Democrats will regain control of the chamber ought to be carrying pompoms and a megaphone. That person is cheerleading, not analyzing.”

    2: “Goldy, what is your comment about the expose Robert Mak did on you and the collusion to smear McGavic by a group of democrats?”

    Goldy would probably respond that he’s damned proud of it. Then again, Mike! seems to be doing a pretty good job of smearing himself.

    “Evolution Opponents Voted Off Kansas Board of Education”

    “By JOHN HANNA, AP

    “TOPEKA, Kan. (Aug. 2) – Conservative Republicans who brought international attention to Kansas by approving academic standards calling evolution into question lost control of the state school board in primaries.

    “As a result of the vote, board members and candidates who believe evolution is well-supported by evidence will have a 6-4 majority. Evolution skeptics had entered the election with a 6-4 majority.”

    Wow. Political campaigns track their opponents at public events on videotape. I didn’t know Ric Romero was reporting for King 5, much less at Sound Politics.

    If you want to talk about “stalking”, I’m sure you remember the Ryan campaign tracker in 04 who was following Obama into the bathroom.

    “Blogger Jailed After Defying Court Orders”

    “By JESSE McKINLEY
    “Published: August 2, 2006

    “SAN FRANCISCO, Aug. 1 — A freelance journalist and blogger was jailed on Tuesday after refusing to turn over video he took at an anticapitalist protest here last summer and after refusing to testify before a grand jury looking into accusations that crimes were committed at the protest. … Mr. Wolf … refused to hand over the tapes, arguing that he had the right as a journalist to shield his sources. On Tuesday, Judge Alsup disagreed, ruling that the grand jury ‘has a legitimate need’ to see what Mr. Wolf filmed.”

    WASHINGTONIANS RUSH TO BURN CHEAP GAS

    While hitching a ride on the Ladies Garden Club tour bus this weekend, and sitting in nonstop traffic jams, it occurred to me that motorists are flocking onto the freeways to burn cheap gas while they can still get it for only $3 a gallon.

    BUSH’S VISION FOR A TOTALITARIAN POLICE STATE

    From today’s Washington Post:

    A draft Bush administration plan for special military courts seeks to expand the reach and authority of such “commissions” to include trials, for the first time, of people who are not members of al-Qaeda or the Taliban and are not directly involved in acts of international terrorism, according to officials familiar with the proposal.

    The plan, which would replace a military trial system ruled illegal by the Supreme Court in June, would also allow the secretary of defense to add crimes at will to those under the military court’s jurisdiction. The two provisions would be likely to put more individuals than previously expected before military juries, officials and independent experts said. […]

    Under the proposed procedures, defendants would lack rights to confront accusers, exclude hearsay accusations, or bar evidence obtained through rough or coercive interrogations. They would not be guaranteed a public or speedy trial and would lack the right to choose their military counsel, who in turn would not be guaranteed equal access to evidence held by prosecutors.

    Detainees would also not be guaranteed the right to be present at their own trials, if their absence is deemed necessary to protect national security or individuals.

    So, did anyone watch the Senate hearings today on C-SPAN? I missed most of it, what little I saw was Gonzalez trying to put a humane face on the proposal and the Republicans more or less towing the party line.

    Police said the driver of a Ford Explorer, Julio Villasana, 33, was arrested and charged with vehicular homicide, drunk driving, and leaving the scene of an accident.

    The wreck happened just before 9:00 Tuesday night. Police said the Villasana was driving the wrong direction when he ran into Charles Derrington riding on his motorcycle head on. Derrington was a well known mandolin maker with Gibson Musical Instuments.

    The wreck threw Derrington off of his motorcycle and into the median. Derrington later died at Vanderbilt. Villasana jumped out of his truck and tried to run away. Other witnesses tried to stop him, but police officers were finally able to arrest him.

    Reports showed that Villasana has been deported from the United State before, and there is no record of permission for him to be here.

    Police also tell us the man was driving on a suspended Kentucky license. [……..Just another “Democrat to be” illegal doing the crimes that American Democrat welfare hacks are to lazy to do!!!]

    “Today we march, tomorrow we vote!” marchers shouted in the immigrant rights rallies that filled the streets of U.S. cities this spring. Trying to motivate Latinos to flex their political muscle, popular Spanish-language DJ Renán Almendárez Coello, known to his estimated 35 million listeners as El Cucuy or “the boogeyman,” began a national voter registration drive Monday in San Jose.

    The Democrat illegal voting campaign begins.

    Today 20 million illegal aliens march, tomorrow they vote Democrat and eventually they might even become citizens. Then they can legally register as Democrats and vote several times in every election.
