In Day By Day, it appears that Jan is echoing half of the sentiment of Winston Churchill. Let's remind everyone that the second half of the sentiment was "If an old man is a liberal, then he has no mind."

Cox & Forkum have a new book out. It'd be worth the $20.

4-Block World compares two media personalities who have made waves during this election campaign.

Helen Thomas models her Hallowe'en costume in today's Gaggle. And, apparently, Wolf Blitzer was surprised by the spanking he got from Mrs. Cheney the other day. Details here.

Mrs. Cheney's interview is indeed the gift that keeps on giving.

Nothing on CNN has made me so happy since watching the "scud studds" hit the deck in the first Gulf War.

What do you think? Lynne Cheney/Condoleezza Rice in 2008? Either one of them would wipe the floor with Hillary or Barack or anyone else the Dhimmicrats might run.

CNN is the Theater of the Absurd. I never waste my time with it. Cable News Nitwits.

I can see Lynne and Condi running, but I can't see the country as ready for a female/female presidential ticket, at least this time. But as far as I'm concerned, either woman would make excellent candidates.

You're probably right that the country's not ready for a f/f ticket. Nevertheless, either of them beats the daylights out of any of the Republicans who might run, with the possible exception of Newt Gingrich. I'm not particularly fond of Newt because of his indiscretions that cost him the Speaker's job, but he is an incredibly intelligent, broad-minded individual and a true visionary, and he represented this district (and me) very well.

On another topic, have you seen the Sonny Perdue commercials that feature Zell Miller? What a slap to Mark Taylor.

Haha! I know. How awesome is that?

What the heck happened to the Zell Miller Democrats? What the heck happened to our government period?

We are so into the party line power grabs that voting for what is right for our country seems to be a thing of the past. That's why I voted for Bush... not because he towed the party line, but because he did what he felt was right for this country. Sometimes I'm afraid we lost him too.

I went through a period after Reagan won in 1980 where I didn't vote. Either I was out of town on election day, or I just didn't want to get involved. When I started voting again in 1992, I faithfully supported the Libertarian candidate for President, largely because there wasn't much to vote for. That is, until 2004, when Michael Badnarik was the Libertarian nominee and advocated an immediate and unconditional withdrawal of troops from Iraq, and John Kerry-Heinz looked as though he might actually take the White House. Then, I did the practical thing and voted for Bush.

I didn't think much of Zell Miller when he was governor of Georgia, and was offended that Roy Barnes replaced Paul Coverdell (one of the better members of the Senate when he was alive) with Zell. After seeing him in action, I had to admit that there are a few Republicans who could learn a thing or two about being conservatives from him. Zell is just a good American.

Wasn't it Mark Twain who said "He who is not a liberal at 20 has no heart, He who is not a conservative at 40 has no head"? I dunno, I get these things from Jeopardy! Of course, I suppose Churchill could have had a similar sentiment I am not aware of.

BTW, the 4-Block World is just WRONG! I mean, technically it may be right, but... who would ever say it?

That could have been the quote; I'd always heard that it was Winston Churchill. Here's a link to the quote: http://www.wisdomquotes.com/000973.html. Of course, The Churchill Centre denies it.

As for your second comment, obviously Tom McMahon would say it. While it's not a particularly nice thing to say, nevertheless it's in the spirit of extreme partisanship that seems to be pervading the country a week before the election.
