“Noble character is best appreciated in those ages in which it can most readily develop”

That is a quote from Tacitus. I disagree. I say it is is best appreciated in those ages in which it is most keenly needed: in the time of dire peril.

Here is another Tacitus quote “Truth is confirmed by inspection and delay; falsehood by haste and uncertainty”, I heartily agree.

When nuke asked me to become a part of Nuke’s News I was flattered. I don’t post or comment much even though I read the entire blog every day. I’ve always been that way, watching and digesting all the information and drawing conclusions later. My first blog, sweatinitout, started out as a political commentary but with my reflective ways, it wasn’t viable. Who wants to talk about something weeks or months after it’s already been talked to death? That’s why sweatinitout became a poetry blog, mainly poems to honor our soldiers, past, present and future. I didn’t know if I needed to give out poetry here or to speak when I felt I had something to say.

Well, tonight I have something to say.

We are in serious trouble as a nation if the current cadre of candidates is the best we can do. I wouldn’t trust these bums with getting the groceries into the house from the car, let alone running the country. Even Fred Thompson, who under close scrutiny, is as vacuous as a thermos liner. They are almost exclusively two-faced, lying weasels who are an invention of the media, especially the democratic candidates whom the press is shoving down our throats with “haste and uncertainty”.

There is one candidate, though. One I’ve watched very closely and examined intensely, Mike Huckabee. He is a noble character and this is evident when he engages voters face to face. His infectious enthusiasm is inspiring people to engage the process and he is winning hearts along with the votes. I could go on about his humble roots, or his self effacing and noble behavior while he served the people of Arkansas.

I commented to nuke in an earlier post “One talent a leader must have at his dispense is the power of moving intellect and emotions.

Inspiration.

It’s what distinguishes not so great presidents like FDR and JFK, and gave them the ability to move great masses of countrymen to achieve great things. They had a vision of what was truly noble. It’s what made them great men. Teddy Roosevelt (perhaps our greatest president after Lincoln) is quoted:

“Far better is it to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checkered by failure… than to rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy nor suffer much, because they live in a gray twilight that knows not victory nor defeat.”

We live in a time where we face the prospect of catastrophe unless we are moved to do mighty things and to win glorious triumphs. That those accomplishments may be checkered by failure is grist for the critic but that criticism is secondary to what is accomplished in the end.

Mike Huckabee is an inspirational man with ideas and vision that could prod our collective spirits to do the mighty and win those triumphs.

Reno, baby!

I mentioned to Mrs. Nuke that there was a big Conservative Shindig coming up in Reno in a couple of months, and wouldn’t she like to come with me.

“Hmmm, Reno? Oh yeah!”

So, I think we’re going to CLC in October.

Why?

I believe that it’s important for the conservative message be heard by as many people as possible. I believe it’s important for it be communicated in a compelling and inspiring way. I believe conservatism, and the conservative political movement is truly the last best hope for liberty, freedom, justice, and the rule of law.

Further, with regards to the New Media, the political right is getting its head handed to it by the left. CLC will be a watershed event to learn to use these powerful tools effectively.

The political left owns the internet like the right owns talk radio.
You may not agree with that statement, and the fact is, most of the right blogosphere doesn’t even realize it, much less have a clue as to why or how it happened. My own trip down the web 2.0 rabbit hole began in earnest about a year ago after reading an excellent article from Robert Cox, and came to fruition after a post from this blog was picked up by BBC’s “The Reporters.” How could a small political blog in the right blogosphere be picked up by an international news organization (which generated some staggering hit counts, btw)? The answer to that question illuminated the theme of Cox’s article for me. It was truly a “Eureka” moment.

So, I think we’re going to do everything we can to be in Reno in October. I hope you can too.

I’m trackposting this entry to my Reciprocated BlogRoll. If you’re not on this list, it’s because I’ve already heard from you since we moved into our new space here at Conservablogs.

Please adjust your blogroll to reflect the new address of Nuke’s News & Views, http://conservablogs.com/nuke.

All the best.

Wiki vandalism traced to Democrat Party

Dirty tricks, vandalism, tire slashing, slander, voter registration fraud, stealing private financial information, overt racism, pandering, and now….and wikipedia vandalism: there is no limit to the depths of tactical depravity to which the democrat party will operate in their obsessive quest for power.

[Wikipedia]… indicates that a computer owned by the US Democratic Party was used to make changes to the site of right-wing talk show host Rush Limbaugh.

The changes brand Mr Limbaugh as “idiotic,” a “racist”, and a “bigot”. An entry about his audience now reads: “Most of them are legally retarded.” …

The IP address is registered in the name of the Democratic National Headquarters.

A spokesperson for the Democratic Party said that the changes had not been made on its computers. Instead, they said that the “IP address is the same as the DCCC”.

The DCCC, or Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, is the “official campaign arm of the Democrats” in the House of Representatives and share a building with the party.
