Condi Rice is so wrong. She thinks what the State Department needs is skin-based diversity. Here she is, counting racial beans the way the Left always does -- and talking like Bill "Looks Like America" Clinton. Wrong, wrong, wrong: Who cares what they look like? It's what they think like that matters. As I've blogged... Read More
"Show me that. I'll be surprised to see that."
Liberal racism? What liberal racism? How clueless and out-of-touch is CNBC Washington chief correspondent and NYTimes writer John Harwood? This clueless (hat tip -Mark Finkelstein at Newsbusters): OK, here's your assignment. John Harwood asked for it. Please help educate him. E-mail him a link to this blog post (or just use the handy 'send to... Read More

Fer cryin' out loud. Will she pull a Pelosi and put on a hijab, too? Just a reminder of what Vice President Cheney said a few weeks ago about Pelosi's meeting with Syrian president Assad: Talk about sending "mixed messages." Cripes. *** Background: State Dept reports on patterns of global terrorism
Well, here's the first name in the "D.C. madam" probe that has Washington in tizzy: Deputy Secretary of State Randall L. Tobias. Make that former Deputy Secretary of State Randall L. Tobias.

The verdict against Kareem is in: three years in prison for insulting Islam and inciting sedition and another year for insulting Egyptian president Hosni Mubarak. Kareem will appeal. Help him. President Bush? Condi Rice? Promoters of democracy in the Middle East? Hello? Hello? Previous Free Kareem blogging.
I clicked through to the story linked on Drudge about the Hillary skirt featured on the runway in Rome. The designer is Gattinoni.

Hillary, Royal, and the... Read More

Remember this Arabic-speaking State Department clown, Albert Fernandez, who went on al Jazeera TV and trashed the U.S. as arrogant and stupid? Well, speaking of arrogant and stupid, guess what? Charles Johnson notes that the State Department has decided to give Fernandez an award. Via Brit Hume's Grapevine last week on Fox News: No surprise.... Read More
A macho show of firepower: Israel is right--this is everyone's problem: In Israel, Infrastructure Minister Binyamin Ben-Eliezer said he was not surprised by the missile tests, and warned that to leave Iran unchecked would pose a risk to the world.

Meet Alberto Fernandez: State Dept. apologist for jihad Alberto Fernandez, director of public diplomacy in the Bureau of Near Eastern Affairs at the US State Department, is al Jazeera's favorite pet tool.

Christian convert Abdul Rahman: Still a marked man Remember Abdul Rahman, the Christian convert who fled Afghanistan and found safety in Italy after Muslim mobs demanded he be killed for abandoning Islam?

First, take a look at mob scenes across the Muslim world this weekend, ostensibly--ostensibly--in response to the civilian deaths in Qana, Lebanon (via Yahoo! News). Angry Muslims from Beirut to Gaza to Lahore are setting fire to American and Israeli flags. Burning effigies of Western leaders. Raising their voices in death chants: (Tigerhawk has more... Read More
Yesterday, I mentioned the wild mob of "peace" activists in Australia who kicked, punched and fired projectiles at PM John Howard's car to protest his support for Israel. Today, there's this from Lebanon: Lebanese protesters broke into the United Nations headquarters in Beirut on Sunday, smashing windows and ransacking offices, after an Israeli air strike... Read More
Headline: Arab Group To Sue U.S. Government I'll believe my own eyes.
Well, yes, that's exactly what it is: KnightHawk at PoliPundit notes the blame America meme. Alcibades at KesherTalk is waiting for the "diplomacy" tut-tutters to do their thing: I can't see that Israel has many options to get the soldiers back, except to bomb some site in Syria; as Sharon's government did, to much success,...

***update: thread here*** You've read the story of the day, all day, on Drudge: Ann Coulter is antagonizing the Left with her comments about the liberal 9/11 widows known as "The Jersey Girls."

***scroll for updates*** The Department of Homeland Security is working overtime to quell citizen outrage over the Border Patrol/Mexico/Minutemen story.

House Democrats are bashing the Bush administration for its lack of "diversity." Via WaPo: Yeah, just ignore this inconvenient reality: What the report does not mention, however, is that Bush has established a record of diversity in his Cabinet. Bush's Cabinet, which includes the vice president and the heads of 15 executive departments, currently has... Read More
Secretary of State Condi Rice says that, unlike her boss, she has no problem with the radicalized illegal alien national anthem: Rice, unfortunately, is speaking from pure ignorance on this matter. "Nuestro Himno" is not merely a straight translation of the "Star-Spangled Banner" into Spanish. It's a politicized rewrite for the purposes of galvanizing pro-illegal... Read More
Two days ago, I reported on an idiotic math question crafted by a Bellevue (WA) Community College professor that took a racist swipe at Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice. Today, the Seattle Times follows up: In keeping with the CYA mentality of the education establishment,

Mark Steyn: The fragile Afghan state is protected by American, British, Canadian, Australian, Italian and other troops, hundreds of whom have died. You cannot ask Americans or Britons to expend blood and treasure to build a society in which a man can be executed for his choice of religion. You cannot tell a Canadian soldier... Read More
Following in Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper's footsteps, Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice phoned Afghan President Hamid Karzai seeking a "favorable resolution" of the Abdul Rahman case.
