Speak of the Devil and etc…

No sooner do I mention LGF and his disputes with Atlas Shurgs and Jihad Watch when the feud blows up again. As I’ve said I read all three and like all three so its kind of a shame.

Charles’ post is here. Pam’s is here, Robert’s is here.

What do I think? I’m with Elder of Ziyon.

No police detail

One interesting thing about the tea parties is how quiet it was in terms of problem. I asked two different police who where there and they said it was the easiest crowd they ever dealt with. Lorie Byrd expands on that theme:

Maybe conservative protesters learned they should have engaged in violence, made a big mess and showered less. That formula seems to draw great media coverage for liberal protests. Or maybe they learned to just keep plugging away and that eventually word will get out, as it is now, slowly but surely. Fox News is not only the number one cable channel, but it recently drew bigger numbers than its competitors, CNN, MSNBC, CNBC and Headline News combined. The New York Times and many of the other major daily newspapers that gave the protests little or no coverage, are suffering and may not survive much longer in their current forms.

So I guess this warning was a tad off.

If only every protest was this way. How many thousands of dollars of overtime could have been saved!

Miss USA question watch

Hey lets have some fun.

Who wants to make book when the first reporter will ask the Miss USA winner her opinion on Gay Marriage?

Who wants to bet that the pageant organizers will forbid her to answer?

Who wants to be that if they don’t forbid her to answer she refuses comment on it?

Like I said 1919 Cincinnati Reds.

Update: Hey I never put 2+2 together. Moran Square, Pat Moran, Moran square diner. He is from my home town. The manager of the 1919 Reds. How could I ever miss that?

Boy She REALLY gets it

Yesterday I titled a post And what profitith a woman if she gains Perez Hilton’s approval… but loses her own soul. Well in an interview with Fox Miss California had this to say: How are you feeling today?

Carrie Prejean: Honestly, happy. This happened for a reason. By having to answer that question in front of a national audience, God was testing my character and faith. I’m glad I stayed true to myself.

Let me say very loudly this is exactly the type of woman I want my boys to end up with. (I suspect if they saw her picture they would 2nd the motion).

Update 2: Boy she REALLY REALLY gets it:

“I can only say to him that I will be praying for him. I feel sorry for him, I really do,”

What a woman!
