Looks like Hagel will get primaried

bruning.jpg Attorney General Jon Bruning is giving serious consideration to a primary challenge to Chuck Hagel (Rino-NE).

Hagel was re-elected with 83% of the vote in 2002, but has become an embarrassment to mainstream conservatives across the nation by siding with the Democrat anti-war caucus, and by using the “I” word on the Sunday talk circuit.

Add to that, Hagel enters the campaign season with a paltry $238,000 in the kitty.

“Senator Hagel voted with the Democratic leadership against President Bush on the most important issue facing our country,” Bruning said, adding, “These are drastic and dramatic shifts away from the Republican Party, our president, and the people of Nebraska.”  source:The Hill

And, if I recall correctly, the are some seventeen GOP members of the House that need a good primary whuppin’ as well.

More on melamine contamination

After this story broke a few weeks ago, most of us thought the worst was over with the recall of Menu Foods dog and cat food products. Unfortunately, it appears now that this story is only beginning…..

CERES, Calif. (AP) A Stanislaus County hog farm was placed under quarantine after an industrial chemical that’s tainted more than 100 brands of dog and cat food was found in pig urine there, state agriculture officials said late Thursday. source

Gonzales is Roadkill. Let’s make some stew

Mark Levin says criticizing Alberto Gonzales is like clubbing a baby seal, calling him a weak man, incapable of defending himself, much less being able to advance a conservative agenda.

The general acceptance among Republicans that Gonzales should go is disturbing to me. Not that I’m a great fan of the AG. It’s just that there are some legitimate questions that Gonzales could shed some light on and perhaps, in the process, turn the momentum from a defensive posture.

In other words, if Gonzales is already roadkill, shouldn’t someone suggest making some stew? Here’s my recipe:

1) Mr. Gonzales, why haven’t you fired Johnny Sutton?

2) Mr. Gonzales, in the last six months, agents along the Southwest border caught 15 people from Iran, 35 from Pakistan, 12 from Jordan, two from Syria and five from Lebanon. Can you understand why so many of your own party are unhappy with the out of control border situation?

3) Mr. Gonzales, who approved of the very lenient plea bargain for Sandy Berger?

4) When will Mr. Berger be required to take the lie detector test that was called for in the plea bargain? Why has it taken so long?

5) Why did your Department not notify the 9/11 Commission about Berger’s activities in a timely manner?

This is a recipe with the potential for some mighty tasty vittles, indeed.

Oh yeah, The Great One has asked for other pundits to join him in his call for the resignation of Harry Reid for yesterday’s cowardly declaration of defeat. Count me in. Again.

Apartheid Wall of Bagdhad

from AP reports,

BAGHDAD – U.S. soldiers are building a three-mile wall to protect a Sunni Arab enclave surrounded by Shiite neighborhoods in a Baghdad area “trapped in a spiral of sectarian violence and retaliation,” the military said.

When the wall is finished, the minority Sunni community of Azamiyah, on the eastern side of the Tigris River, will be gated, and traffic control points manned by Iraqi soldiers will be the only entries, the military said.

Paul Rodriguez on immigration reform

Comedian Paul Rodriguez shares his thoughts on illegal immigration, in Dallas News.com.  LINK

The illegal immigration issue is a hot-button topic right now; how is that being handled in the Latino entertainment community?

rodriguez.jpg I disagree with my Hispanic brothers. You cannot serve two gods. You cannot have dual citizenship of Mexico and the same for America. I am American; God forbid that we go to war with Mexico, because I know which way I’ll point the gun. “If Mexico is so good,” I tell them, “why leave?”

My parents left because they were starving. I am grateful to this country, and I will lay my life down for it. I feel that if you’re in America illegally, you’ve got two options: You fix your status and get legit, or leave. We should be more in favor of deportation than the non-Latinos, but my brothers don’t feel like that.

What part of illegal don’t they understand? Think about it: Both political parties are talking about reform, but that’s just what it is – talk. We’re a nation of immigrants, but there’s a right way and a wrong way to do things.
