November!

***Wow, hard to believe it's November already. As much as I'm looking forward to whatever gains the Republicans make after tomorrow, I will be really, really glad when this election is over!

***Tiger Woods loses top golf spot. Lee Westwood is now number one.

***Oh yeah, I miss Dubya. Check this out, if you missed it. He and his father, George H.W. Bush, were at the World Series game last night in Texas, and George W. threw out the first pitch, a strike. I love it. Here are John Hinderaker's comments:

JOHN adds: God, I miss the man. I disagreed with him on a number of issues--Medicare drugs, spending in general, immigration--but no one ever doubted where his loyalties lay or what country he thought he was President of. I will never forget the evening in October 2001, shortly after the September 11 attacks, when President Bush walked onto the field at Yankee Stadium to throw out the first pitch in the World Series, wearing a bulletproof vest because no one knew what to expect, and threw a perfect strike. We have had many highlights since we got involved in politics, but, likewise, I will never forget the Republican convention in 2004 when President Bush's appearance was preceded by a video that ended with a catcher's eye view of that pitch coming down the heart of the plate. Bush entered Madison Square Garden, moments after, to thunderous applause. It's good to see that he still throws a baseball like a man, which is how he governed.

Amen, John. How wonderful it will be when we have a man back in the White House, hopefully after 2012.

***Here's the contrast.

***You gotta see this...talk about bizarre. A man got on his knees in a prayerful position next to Obama's limousine. I mean - yikes.

***Now, for a touch of culture - Van Gogh's "Starry Night."


***Should Christians be involved in politics? I think you know my answer to that. This is a long, but very interesting, essay on this subject.

***Cool hand painting!


***Only those who will risk going too far can possibly find out how far one can go.  ~T.S. Eliot

***Have a great day!

  1. a dude praying next to Obama's limo is nothing to spectacular (unless he was asking the Limo for a blessing, which would be weird.) Libs have prayed to Obama before. It's very creepy.

  2. I think, reading more about the picture, the dude was begging. Which is actually even sadder.
