Sotomayor Backers Prepare to Oppo Firefighter

If they perform the same sort of murderous character assassination on Ricci as they’ve done in the past to Robert Bork and more recently to Joe the Plumber, and Sarah Palin, the dyslexic fireman won’t have a chance.

Thought Crimes Bill Expected to Pass House


HR 1913, the latest far-left attempt to pass special provisions for hate crimes, is expected to pass through the House of Representatives this week, perhaps even tomorrow.

Methinks judges should pay more attention to their fortune cookies.
