I'll bet that Red Sox cap he wore went really well with his old constituents . . .

The only worse thing I can think of would be Antonio Villaraigosa wearing a Giants cap, or Gavin Newsom wearing a Dodgers cap . . .

no, no, no, the "so-and-so" at the pearly gates must be Editorial Cartoonist Template #1.
Where Mr. Whig lives, he has a very unoriginal cartoonist who trots out that hoary old saw everytime someone dies.
No, rounding third and being thrown out at home is the right analogy here.

I meant, "rounding third and heading for home."

"Thrown out" is an old line of Steve Bosco, Bob and Ray's sports reporter.

Hey Jim, tell us how you really feel. Your characatures of the candidates don't show a preference whatsoever.

By the way, I've never seen HRC look that happy in real life. If she really could smile like that she might be more palatable. Contrary to your drawing, she's usually the one snarling and Rudy appears to be more of a smiler.

US says Iraq attacks down 55 percent By KIM GAMEL, Associated Press Writer
Sun Nov 18, 11:57 AM ET

BAGHDAD - Violence is down 55 percent in Iraq since a U.S.-Iraqi security operation began this summer, U.S. officials said Sunday, even as at least 15 Iraqis were reported killed in bombings and shootings.

Harper Lee came calling on President Bush the other day. She received the Medal of Freedom for her sublime contribution to American culture, the novel "To Kill a Mockingbird." I have often thought of a line from that story when I think of President Bush. Referring to the unforgettable Atticus Finch, Lee wrote, "There are some men in this world who are born to do our unpleasant jobs for us."

I may seem rebellious, but I think history will view George W. Bush as certainly the most important president since Franklin Delano Roosevelt, and arguably the best. By objective measure, he has been undeniably successful in the two areas historically used to judge a presidency: national security and the economy. Since 9/11 we have been 100 percent safe, and the overall economy has been remarkably strong.

His proactive doctrine of planting freedom and hope in the Middle East is coming to fruition. He will be compared favorably to other wartime presidents, Abraham Lincoln and FDR, without stretching the Constitution nearly as far as they did.

In this skittish and cynical time foreseen long ago by Plato in Book II of "The Republic" as the "Feverish State," Bush has stood apart like Atticus, a bastion of certainty, courage and hope. The certainty comes from trusting what is best and universal in human nature. John F. Kennedy would have called him a "Profile in Courage" for doing what he believes is right, however unpopular.

The hope is engendered by our young people. Some are volunteering to fight for freedom around the world, others are working long hours to meld our economy with 21st century technology. They will surpass the "greatest generation."

It is positive energy which propels evolution in nature and society. Bush exhibits this with an unassuming, plain-spoken style sometimes short on eloquence but long on wisdom - an unlikely heroic figure. Shakespeare would have loved him.

yes, the freedom to start a war any time you want for any reason you want to justify anything you want to spend any amount of money you want at the cost of any amount of lives you want to go on as long as you want with noone's permission - that's real freedom

Giuliani promotes virtual fence By ELIZABETH WHITE, Associated Press Writer
33 minutes ago

MISSION, Texas - Republican presidential contender Rudy Giuliani pushed the idea of a "virtual" rather than a real fence along much of the U.S.-Mexico border on Monday, an issue that's controversial in the Rio Grande Valley where many people oppose construction of a physical fence to stop illegal immigration.

Sure, A-Rod's 54 homers and 156 RBIs are nice during the regular season, but look at his performances from the playoffs. Rodriguez has hit .133, .071, and .267 in his last three postseasons. Meanwhile, all Lowell did this year was earn World Series MVP by batting .400 with 6 runs scored and 4 RBIs. Lowell hit .353 in 14 postseason games for the Red Sox in 2007.

What are the chances that Giuliani will switch and become an Indians fan? or a Bengals fan?

at 11/19/07, 7:14 PM Anonymous Anonymous said...

This is in the eye of the beholder, of course. What is certain is that Lowell, in an "off" year, made 15 errors at third base this season compared with A-Rod's 13. But Lowell made just 6 errors in each of his previous two seasons, while A-Rod made 36 total errors in 2005 and 2006. For his career, Rodriguez has a .960 fielding percentage at third base, while Lowell is practically unmatched at his position at .976.

Oprah should mind her own business, her school that's falling apart...

November 26, 2007
DES MOINES, Iowa—Oprah Winfrey will join Democrat Barack Obama again on the campaign trail, this time visiting the early contest states of Iowa, New Hampshire and South Carolina, the candidate's campaign said Monday.

more stories like thisThe popular talk show host and media mogul plans to visit Iowa on Saturday, Dec. 8, with stops in Des Moines and Cedar Rapids. The following day, she'll travel to Columbia, S.C. Later that day, Obama's campaign said, she'll travel to Manchester, N.H.

This isn't the first time Oprah has lent her star power to the Illinois senator.

In September, she rolled out the red carpet for Obama at a gala fundraiser in California that brought in about $3 million for his campaign.

Winfrey is a well-known fan of Obama, calling him "my favorite guy" and "my choice" on CNN's "Larry King Live" last year before he announced he would seek the presidency.

In a news release announcing the events, Obama's campaign said tickets to the Iowa events will be given first to precinct captains, then campaign volunteers, then to supporters and undecided caucus-goers.

It said volunteers can be guaranteed a ticket by completing a four-hour volunteer shift or attending local caucus training before the event.
