The World Series - Men Against The Boys

The Colorado Rockies may have made quick work of the National League playoffs, but last night they played and looked like they were straight out of the American Legion.

Hopefully they will play better tonight, but I doubt if there is anything that can be done about the Rockies road jerseys. The American Legion jerseys we wore 40 years ago would be a giant step up from the jerseys the Rockies wore last night. Who dresses those guys anyway?

Ocean Front Property In Arizona? Who You Gonna Believe?

If you are worried about the sea level rising as glaciers and the polar ice cap melt, read this interview.

Dr. Nils-Axel Mörner is the head of the Paleogeophysics and Geodynamics department at Stockholm University in Sweden. He is past president (1999-2003) of the INQUA Commission on Sea Level Changes and Coastal Evolution, and leader of the Maldives Sea Level Project. Dr. Mörner has been studying the sea level and its effects on coastal areas for some 35 years.

You can believe Dr. Nils-Axel Mörner or you can believe Al Gore. Personally, I'm not planning on investing in any ocean front property in Arizona.

What To Expect From President Thompson...

Apparently former U.S. senator Fred Thompson doesn't hold a very high regard for the office to which he aspires.

Thompson was a senator during the impeachment of President William Jefferson Clinton. Unfortunately, when it came time to vote on the two counts of the impeachment, the senator from Tennessee voted not to convict President Clinton of perjury. Of course, everyone knows President Clinton lied through his teeth again and again - straight to the American people on television and under oath. He lied about Paula Jones and he lied about Monica Lewinsky. Yet the good senator couldn't bring himself to convict the Liar in Chief of perjury.

I am puzzled by his vote. He voted with all the pseudo-Republicans not to convict. Susan Collins (R-ME), John H. Chaffee (R-RI), Slade Gorton (R-WA), James M. Jeffords (R-VT), Richard C. Shelby (R-AL), Olympia J. Snowe (R-ME), Arlen Spector (R-PA), Ted Stevens (R-AK), and John W. Warner (R-VA ). You can see the entire vote here.

Is this what he expects of the President of the United States? Is this what we can expect from him if we elect him to that high office?

Sometimes there are deal breakers and this is one of them for me. I would rather have Hillary to kick around for 4 years than a Judas like Fred Thompson in the White House. If Fred Thompson is the Republican nominee I will vote, but I will vote for the Libertarian candidate.

Democrats Are Off The Reservation

MoveOn.org's now infamous General Petraeus ad was about what you would expect to come from George Soros. He is as anti-American as you can get. Can you say communist?

Hillary Clinton's latest vote buying scheme is so ludicrous I wasn't going to mention it, but really Hillary - $5,000 to every baby born in America! That really is pandering to the lowest common denominator.

Barack Obama has removed the American flag lapel pin as a protest against the war. Who does he think he is, John Kerry?

These guys are just too funny.
