RIP, Tony

My favorite Tony Snow moment came at the end of a Fox News show. Tony noted that some pictures had emerged of some Democratic party bigwig--it was probably Al Gore or John Kerry--during their long-haired hippie phase back in the late 1960s/early 1970s. Tony said that people should not make a big deal of it, that he remembered a guy whose girlfriend's brother thought he looked like Charles Manson. Up on the screen flashed an image of Tony himself from his own long-haired hippie phase.

I laughed for a solid minute. Farewell, Tony.

Summer of Love?

Some very subtle digs in there. "Beautiful words cannot make our country better." Love it!

I'll Probably Get In Trouble for Noticing This

But the other day, I was riding past an apartment complex. Three guys from a landscaping crew were out with their leaf blowers. And all three of them were black; none of them were Mexican. It was quite a surprise, an indication that Arizona's crackdown on illegal aliens is working.

Limbaugh's "Hate"

Okay, I was rather critical of El Rushbo back in February, when he decided along with much of the conservative commentariat to start bashing the clear choice of Republicans for the presidency. I take back not a word of what I wrote back then. But leave it to Eric Boehlert to remind me why I used to listen to the guy virtually every day:

That's why there was no mention in the very long profile about the fact that Limbaugh has called Sen. John Kerry a "gigolo," mocked Democratic Party chief Howard Dean as "a very sick man," agreed that liberal philanthropist George Soros is a "self-hating Jew," denounced then-Sen. Tom Daschle as an Al Qaeda sympathizer, mocked anti-war crusader Cindy Sheehan, whose son was slain in Iraq, by teasing, " 'Oh, she lost her son' -- well, yes. Yes. Yes. But you know, this is [sigh] -- aaah. We all lose things."

Or that Limbaugh has claimed Democrats "hate this country" (i.e. "What's good for Al Qaeda is good for the Democratic Party in this country today"); denigrated members of the U.S. Armed Forces, calling military men and women who criticized the war in Iraq and advocated withdrawal "phony soldiers"; toasted photos of the prisoner abuse at Abu Ghraib as "good old American pornography"; suggested actor Michael J. Fox faked symptoms of his life-threatening illness while taping a pro-stem-cell-research commercial; called Sen. Barack Obama a "Halfrican American"; and announced Obama and Osama bin Laden are "on the same page."

I'd rather he hadn't said the bit about Casey Sheehan, who was by all accounts an exceptional young man. I don't agree that all Democrats hate this country; maybe half of them. At least some of the military men and women who criticized the war in Iraq were quite literally phony soldiers. Lauro Chavez? Jesse MacBeth?
Define Volunteer

Jonah Goldberg remarks on Barack Obama's plan for compulsory volunteerism:

In his speech on national service Wednesday at the University of Colorado, Obama promised that as president he would "set a goal for all American middle and high school students to perform 50 hours of service a year, and for all college students to perform 100 hours of service a year."

He would see that these goals are met by, among other things, attaching strings to federal education dollars. If you don't make the kids report for duty, he's essentially telling schools and college kids, you'll lose money you can't afford to lose. In short, he'll make service compulsory by merely compelling schools to make it compulsory.

Encouraging volunteerism is fine. Requiring it is not. And you know how it is; all those "free" workers don't come free to the taxpayer; there will have to be adults supervising their work. It's nothing more than a boondoggle to pad the public payrolls.

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.
