    We can only imagine the flurry in Gov. Ed Rendell's press office last week when the news release was e-mailed en masse to reporters. There was nothing particularly out of the ordinary about the subject matter -- the Pennsylvania Department of Military & Veterans Affairs helping provide video phones to aid communication between deployed Pennsylvania National Guard members in Iraq and their families. But at the top of the release was a note from Trena Brown, an office administrator, that she had neglected to delete before sending out the communique. "Bet this gonna cause a lot of breakups. Can you...

    Fellow Americans, there comes a time every mans life when we must give up ourselves before we are worthy to recieve. There comes a time in this war on terror when in order to protect liberty, we have to give it up in the mean time for safty. That's right folks. Today, Americans have forsaken the creator for the creation and have decided that they would value our "civil liberties" than protecting western civilization and rich white people from the tender mercies of radical Islamic terrorists. Selfish liberals insist and whine that Bush has no right to spy on Americans...

    For all the overheated talk of fraud in Wisconsin's last presidential election particularly in Milwaukee one incident stands out and demands significant punishment. Those who slashed the tires of 25 rented vans and cars at the GOP headquarters in Milwaukee the morning of the 2004 election may have prevented hundreds of people from voting. Five men, including the sons of two prominent Democrats, are on trial for felony property destruction. Testimony resumes today in a Milwaukee courtroom. This is not just another run-of-the-mill case of vandalism. It's an affront to our democratic system. The Republican Party of Wisconsin had rented...

    Boston Mayor Thomas Menino has raised the level of rhetoric and insulted religious Catholics across the state by telling a homosexual newspaper this week that those who want to enforce the Church's teachings and instructions are, in his words, "hateful." Catholic Charities, an arm of the Archdiocese of Boston but run by a separate (and unfortunately, left-wing) board of directors, had announced that it was honoring Mayor Menino at its annual fund-raising dinner to be held next Friday, Dec. 9, at the Boston Harbor Hotel. Many religious Catholics were outraged and communicated with Archbishop Sean O'Malley that he should not...

New Orleans deputy police commander W.S. Riley launched a bitter attack on the federal response to the disaster though he praised the way the evacuation was eventually handled. His remarks fuelled controversy over the government's handling of events during five days when New Orleans succumbed to lawlessness after Katrina swamped the city's flood defenses.

Kansas City-based Universal Press Syndicate, which distributes the Garry Trudeau strip to about 1,400 newspapers, said it had received some complaints from editors about a reference to presidential aide Karl Rove. In the strip, a caricature of President Bush refers to Rove as "turd blossom." It has been widely reported that "Turd Blossom" is the president's actual nickname for Rove.

The Marine, 32, of Westwood, was killed in a mortar attack in Iraq on July 10. Mrs. Baker Knoll began talking to Sgt. Goodrich's aunt during the Communion service. She handed the aunt a business card; Knoll called the funeral a "function." Then Knoll told the aunt that the state government was "against the war." Outrageous. Visiting...

    MoveOn, the left wing political action group, sees a White House conspiracy in the announcement of President Bush's new Supreme Court nominee. When the White House revealed that the President would release the name of his pick Tuesday night, MoveOn quickly issued a press release suggesting the timing of the announcement was simply a "wag the dog" effort to help Karl Rove. The MoveOn release reads: "President Bush has apparently speeded up the announcement of his Supreme Court nominee to deflect public attention from the Karl Rove scandal." Evidence of the timing conspiracy? MoveOn cites an unnamed "Republican strategist" who...

"After the fireworks, the music, the rhetoric of freedom -- what then? The party is over. Can we think about what, exactly, we were celebrating?" Carroll asked.

    In a wide-ranging interview now wrapping up on Chris Matthews' Hardball show on MSNBC, Howard Dean described the murderous insurgents in Iraq as "fighting for their country." So outlandish was his statement that, probably realizing his folly, he quickly added, "don't get me wrong, I favor fighting against terrorists." Matthews gave Dean incredibly respectful treatment. If Matthews had any criticism of Dean, it came from the left. He called Dean "a voice of reason" and demanded to know why Dean wasn't as critical of the war in Iraq as he was when he was a candidate for the Dem nomination....

He ignored the concerns that Americans have expressed about the war, and still refused to provide real answers or a clear path to success in Iraq. Even former Reagan aide David Gergen expressed that he was...

    A radical Midwestern hate group plans to protest at the funerals of two local soldiers killed in action, claiming the slain heroes "were cast into hell to join many more dishonorable Americans." The Westboro Baptist Church, proclaiming "thank God for IEDs" or roadside bombs, claims the 9/11 attacks and American deaths in Iraq and Afghanistan are God's vengeance on a nation that is tolerant of homosexuality. "It's going to shock and enrage every person who sees it. That is our goal," said Margie Phelps, daughter of WBC leader Fred Phelps. The group is based in Topeka, Kansas, and has made...

    TROUBLE SPEAK Ward Churchill backs fragging Controversial '9-11 prof' suggests rolling grenades under line officers Posted: June 26, 2005 10:39 p.m. Eastern © 2005 Prof. Ward Churchill University of Colorado professor Ward Churchill suggested to a forum on conscientious objection they might be more effective in opposing war if they supported the "fragging" or killing of line officers. In a Portland meeting on resistance to military recruiting, Churchill, famous for comparing Sept. 11, 2001, victims in the World Trade Center to "little Eichmanns," twice suggested anti-war activists should support those who kill their officers. "For those of you who...

    No U.S. bashing at WTC, Pataki vows Gov. Pataki blasted America-bashing art like that featured by Drawing Center. Gov. Pataki drew a line in the sand yesterday, declaring he will tolerate no America-bashing on the sacred soil of Ground Zero. Hours after the Daily News disclosed that a museum set to rise on the site had displayed kooky and anti-American art, the governor said there can be no place where nearly 3,000 innocents died for an institution that attacks the United States and the heroes of 9/11. His voice rising and his resolve steely as he compared the World Trade...

    Morgan Spurlock got famous from his Oscar-nominated documentary Super Size Me. He ingested big McDonald's meals three times a day for 30 days, then blamed McDonald's for his bloated body and dodgy health. Now he's using his 30-day premise to get Americans to ingest his version of radical Islam on cable's FX Network. -- snip -- I asked the show's executive producers--all of whom worked on The Awful Truth With Michael Moore, a cable TV show--how this could be a documentary when they had decided the outcome in advance. Wasn't it possible that Mr. Stacy would come out seeing that...

    GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (AP) — A federal judge sentenced a Michigan man Thursday to four years and three months in prison for threatening to kill Vice President Dick Cheney. U.S. District Judge Gordon J. Quist also sentenced Homer O. Shoup, 51, to three years of supervised release after his prison term and fined him $3,000. Authorities said Shoup called a 911 dispatcher Oct. 29 and said he had turned his van into a mobile bomb that he planned to use to kill Cheney. They said he planned to crash the vehicle into a Lansing building where the vice president spoke...

    Edgy director Lars von Trier startled the crowd at Cannes by referring to President Bush with an obscenity. Von Trier, who directed Nicole Kidman in “Dogville,” made the comment while unveiling his new film “Manderlay,” starring Bryce Dallas Howard, at the French film festival. When asked why his recent films depict America in an unflattering light, Von Trier responded, “Mr. Bush is an a**hole.” The Danish director explained, “So much in Denmark is American. We are a nation under influence. America fills about 60 per cent of my brain. So, in fact, I am American. But I can’t go there...

    Howard Dean may not be running for anything, but his elbows appear to be as sharp as ever. Since taking over as chairman of the Democratic National Committee earlier this year, the former presidential candidate has been quoted in newspapers making unusually caustic remarks about Republicans. Dean has suggested that they are "evil." That they are "corrupt." He called them "brain-dead" during a stop in Toronto -- and while the Terri Schiavo case was still in the news. He has tagged Sen. Rick Santorum (R-Pa.) as a "liar." Last week, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reported that he mimicked a "drug-snorting...

    WASHINGTON - Senate Democrats are quietly trying to kill a 10-year legal probe that implicates several senior Clinton administration appointees for obstruction of justice, the Daily News has learned. The Democrats, saying that the $21 million investigation by Independent Counsel David Barrett should have ended long ago, succeeded in attaching an amendment to a spending bill Tuesday to cut off his funding by June 1. But two sources close to the investigation said that if the legislation becomes law, it will thwart Barrett from making public a final report that names senior officials in the Clinton Justice Department and Internal...
