* Conservapedia :
Conservapedia is an online resource and meeting place where we favor Christianity and America. Conservapedia has easy-to-use indexes to facilitate review of topics. You will much prefer using Conservapedia compared to Wikipedia if you want concise answers free of "political correctness".

Conservapedia is a much-needed alternative to Wikipedia, which is increasingly anti-Christian and anti-American. On Wikipedia, many of the dates are provided in the anti-Christian "C.E." instead of "A.D.", which Conservapedia uses. Christianity receives no credit for the great advances and discoveries it inspired, such as those of the Renaissance.
hysterical. they also have a list of wikipedia's 'biases' which ought be read for comedy value - they decry 'evolutionists' and complain that "Wikipedia often uses foreign spelling of words."

"Senate Dems Seek Repeal of 2002 War Authority
More than four years after Congress authorized President Bush to invade Iraq, Senate Democrats have announced a new effort to try to take back that authority. Democratic leaders say they plan to unveil legislation that would repeal the 2002 resolution authorizing President Bush to go to war. The binding measure would call for a withdrawal of combat units by May of next year. But the resolution would also grant leeway to keep soldiers in Iraq to fight al-Qaeda forces and train Iraqi troops. Meanwhile House Democrats have apparently dropped plans to link further war funding to the readiness of combat forces."

* i just saw something weird on my teeve. i was watching cnn, and they mentioned the Prodi debacle in Italy, and they said that he lost his job last week because of a "foreign policy loss." that's an odd formulation, i thought, so i flipped over to the beeb where they were reporting that Prodi lost his job b/c of a "loss on foreign policy." curious.

"There are those American pundits and politicos trapped in a dualistic, Good v. Evil mindset on all issues related to the Middle East, and for these it is impossible to consider that Iranians could rationally perceive that it is not in their interest to be at war with the United States. Nothing can be done about our own neocons enthralled to such a worldview. But the rest of us can hope to pursue a sane foreign policy and that the Democrats and reasonable Republicans will insist on rapprochement, and not war with Iran."

"The Army's highest-ranking officer said Friday that he was unsure whether the U.S. military would capture or kill Osama bin Laden, adding, "I don't know that it's all that important, frankly."

"So we get him, and then what?" asked Gen. Peter J. Schoomaker, the outgoing Army chief of staff, at a Rotary Club of Fort Worth luncheon. "There's a temporary feeling of goodness, but in the long run, we may make him bigger than he is today.

"He's hiding, and he knows we're looking for him. We know he's not particularly effective. I'm not sure there's that great of a return" on capturing or killing bin Laden"

* drifty read riverbend's "Rape of Sabrine" and ends with this:
"And if you find that you are a Conservative, then you can quit bothering to hunt for phantom enemies within, like the Liberal Press and the Dirty Hippies, because you – personally and specifically -- are the enemy.

You – personally and specifically -- are what is wrong with America."

"The Soviets used to send political dissidents to psychiatric asylums and labor camps. The gulags sound downright humane compared to what our government did to Jose Padilla."

* mort kondracke on BeltwayBoys:
'The way Hillary reacted to the Geffen/Obama thing is the same way that the WH reacted to Joe Wilson's Niger op-ed'

* fred barnes on BeltwayBoys:
'Blogs are good for Conservatives. Dirty Fucking Hippies Angry antiwar lefty bloggers attack the Dems, pushing them to the unelectable left, and the rightie bloggers attack the liberal media. Win. Win.

Prodi government lost a vote of confidence in senate about their foreign policy (as a whole, I think), so that's adequate description if you're not planning to go on too many details.

Reportedly the top two irritations there were Italian presence in Afghanistan and expansion of US military base in Veneto region.gmajlis

it struck me as though the equivalent might have been (let's assume that the dems won congress because of congressional corruption and iraq) that the repugs lost "because of domestic and foreign policy issues"

well - duh!
