ARC's 1st Law: As a "progressive" online discussion grows longer, the probability of a nefarious reference to Karl Rove approaches one

Democratic Response to Bush's Speech

With the hysterical response to Bush's speech by all the usual suspects yesterday I could not help but think, well, if the shoe fits, wear it.

Why would one come unglued when the President brings up the subject of appeasement and does not even mention your name? Maybe they realize that what the President is saying applies fully to them and it makes them a wee bit uncomfortable? Could be. The Democratic response was laughable and pathetic at the same time.

But then I got a bit uncomfortable. Chris Mathews, of all people, made a very good point. What did Chamberlain do wrong in 1938 Mathews asked rhetorically.

Was it wrong or stupid to talk to Hitler? Or was it wrong or stupid to give away half of Czechoslovakia in exchange for "peace in our times"? Obviously it was the latter.

A point worth pondering.

In the mean time lets enjoy the Democrats twisting themselves into a knot.

Democratic Platform 1864 - Might Sound Familiar

I was doing some research for a project involving the Civil War when I came across the well known Thomas Nast illustration for Harper's Weekly entitled "The Chicago Platform" which was the Democratic platform for the 1864 election. It is totally amazing! Senator Reid and Congresswoman Pelosi Could have written it!

It is headed "Chicago Platform" and sub-headed "Union Failures."

No, I am NOT kidding you!

Please visit the Harper's web site to see a full size complete image of this illustration ... you won't regret it!

Shameless Self-Promotion!

Slow news day, so I'll take advantage.

I have jumped squarely into the late 20th Century and tried my hand at web site creation and there is enough of it there to show it off though some pages are still "under construction" and a lot of other work remains to be done.

Anyway, click here and see what this old guy has been up to.

Obama has Been in 57 states and Has One to Go

If W had said this ... well, we know what would be happening in the MSM right about now.
