ELF Kook Gets 9 Years

For arson.

Chelsea Dawn Gerlach, 30, is the third of 10 members of The Family, a Eugene-based cell of the Earth Liberation Front and Animal Liberation Front, to be sentenced. All have pleaded guilty to conspiracy and arson charges in a string of 20 fires that did $40 million worth of damage in five states, including a 1998 fire at the Vail ski resort in Colorado.

Andrew Sullivan Falls for Ron Paul

I've been covering Ron Paul a lot over at the Screw Loose Change Blog, but mostly on his Truther-friendly comments. Now that seems to be wrapped up for the moment, I thought it might be worth a chuckle to read what Andrew Sullivan thinks of Ron Paul.

Paul also has serious online support. Like Howard Dean – another crank – Ron Paul’s supporters are overrepresented on the web. They blasted all the online polls about the debate, and Paul thereby “won” or came second in the debate, according to the ABC News poll, the Fox News poll and almost every other online poll out there. His campaign has deployed YouTube to great effect as well, and the hostility of the Republican establishment has only given his little political insurgency more oxygen.

Paul has a core of libertarian support that apparently has figured out how to successfully spam internet polls; but the notion that he's got real support is ridiculous. He's not even registering in real polls.

McCain Conference Call Report

I got on the line for the blogger conference call again this morning. Senator McCain started out by discussing the outlines of a speech he will give to the Oklohama State Legislature today on getting spending under control and being responsible stewards of the people's money. He also mentioned that the much-bruited altercation he had with Senator Cornyn has been greatly exaggerated.

The questions were wide-ranging. As expected the bulk of the questions concerned the immigration bill and whether it constituted amnesty for illegal aliens. Senator McCain cited some of the tougher measures in the bill, including a $5,000 fine, not an insignificant amount to people earning on the order of $15,000 a year. He also stated that those criticizing the plan should offer an alternative of their own.

I managed to ask Senator McCain about the 9-11 conspiracy theories, using Ron Paul's silly comment at the debate as a lead-in and asked if he could comment about the "Truthers" and what more we could do to combat this virus which has now infected an estimated 35% of the Democratic electorate.

Senator McCain responded that these conspiracy theories arise in a democracy where people are free to speak their minds, but that they are damaging to the image of America abroad and disruptive to the fabric of society at home. He did indicate that he was very disturbed by the 35% figure and hoped that was not accurate.

Frodo's Girl

Here's an interesting portrait of Dennis Kucinich's wife:

AN Essex girl may be the first lady with a tongue stud to have set her sights on the White House. The wife of Dennis Kucinich, a left-wing Democratic congressman and 2008 presidential candidate, is a 29-year-old hippie chick from Upminster at the end of London Underground’s District line.

Elizabeth Kucinich, née Harper, has been on the stump with her husband, a 60-year-old anti-war campaigner from Cleveland, Ohio, mingling with the likes of Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama backstage at the Democratic presidential debates. “There’s a kind of camaraderie,” she said.

A 6ft tall willowy redhead who has been compared to Arwen Evenstar, the Lord of the Rings character, she towers over her diminutive husband. “Who cares?” she said in an interview. “I like wearing high heels so I’m used to being taller than most men I stand next to.”

Anybody remember the contest in 2004 to win a date with Dennis (obviously prior to his marriage)? IIRC the second prize was two dates. ;)

Cited for Breaking the Christmas in Cambodia story (at Kerry Haters):

Hugh Hewitt: KerryHaters was on this story a long time ago. How could the elite media not have asked these questions before now?

Ankle-Biting Pundits: Our friends Pat and Kitty at Kerry Haters deserve the blog equivalent of a Pulitzer for their coverage of Kerry's intricate web of lies regarding Vietnam.
