Speaking of Las Vegas, with all the stuff to do there, who's got time for

I knew Tom Daschle was running for president when he quit wearing his

are stodgy and indicative of weakness and age. Go figure.

If Judge Pickering can't even be an appellate judge cause he might rule as
a 'right-winger'...does that mean we can impeach all the appellate judges
who have ruled as left-wingers?

As for appellate judge nominations, what happened to all those Democrat
friends of mine who were screaming about the Republican Senate and how it

If the death penalty, putting a criminal to death, doesn't deter someone
from comitting murder...exactly why is a gun law supposed to stop them
from buying a gun...with which to do the murder?

Does Israel need stricter dynomite-strapped-to-the-body control laws?

I can't decide which is more fatuous: 'differently-abled' or
