RIGHT ON RED4
Where The Left Takes A Turn For The Worse








QUOTE OF THE DAY: "We are inclined to believe those we do not know, because they have never deceived us." - Samuel Johnson (1709-1784)

WORD OF THE DAY: pleonasm - an expression in which a word is redundant, as in hear with one's ears.

SONG OF THE DAY: "Motherless Children" by the Staple Singers. From their early 60's gospel era, this is an otherworldly version of the traditional blues standard, originally popularized by Blind Willie Johnson in the 1920's. The call and response between Pops and his children is eerie, especially when they sing:
Father do the very best he can
So many things he don't understand
Motherless children have a hard time
When the mother is gone

PERSON OF THE DAY: Louisiana Congressman Rodney Alexander , who followed his conscience and switched parties, even though it may lessen his chance of reelection.

BLOG OF THE DAY: My War (especially this post, which is an honest, fair, and entertaining depiction of political feelings among the men and women on duty in Iraq). I like this dude's writing; one gets a sense of what it's like to be over there, replete with humor and profanity and irreverence. Forgive his reluctance to use spell-check - he's defending civilization for crying out loud! Hoorah!

WEIRD NEWS OF THE DAY: Bull flees butcher, takes refuge in hospital ER ward.

This morning's headline on Drudge is a CNN report saying the State Department has confirmed the US Presidential election will be watched by UN monitors. Every American should be offended by this insult.
