Cowardly Lion

"A neighbor of President Bush near his (fake) ranch in Crawford, Texas, fired his shotgun in the air twice because he was upset about all the protestors. ... President Bush was pretty shaken up because this was by far the closest he's ever been to actual combat." -- Jay Leno

I hate to comment OT, but this is for Bill - Bill, the reason I told you not to engage with Anonymous is that Doug is trying to get the schmuck to leave. Anon is just trying to goad Doug into banning him so that he can complain about how liberals hate real free speech, but if you just ignore him, eventually (we're hoping) he'll get bored and go away. I know it's tempting, but in the future, try not to feed the troll.

on topic -- the "Western White House" is a misuse of the public trust. "work" done out there isn't held to the same scrutiny of "real work" done at the real White House. it's unconstitutional. our capitol is in DC -- not Crawford.

he needs to get back to work.

Hah! Like I would beleive that Ann,, I know you meant to ask me to not get engaged, and as I posted, I will remain availible for you!

btw, I am sure Brook would be happy to forward any email to me to discuss pascal further, I look forward to hearing from you and Doug. I thoroughly enjoy his site, but of late the troll hunting as been annoying. What is worse, that jerk drowns out all of the thoughtful conservatives which I felt always added to the debate there (even when they are hopelessly wrong)

Since neither you, Doug, nor I want to post our email addresses for fear of the spamtastic results that would surely produce, send your contact info to brook and via this post I ask her to forward it to me, Also, by this post I reinterate my request to Brook to add your and Dougs websites to the links here. Oddly enough, it was the poster here "Tony not tony" that originally turned me onto Dougs' site.

Oh Ann, your site rocks too. Not as much snark, heavy on the reasoning. I recommend it to all.

Gentle readers, here are the respective links, which I hope Brook will add permanately here (nudge nudge):

Brook, I'd never actually thought about it that way, but it's the truth. Not that he gets all that much scrutiny when he's in the regular White House, but when he's in Crawford, all we ever get is pressers telling us how great the war is going and footage of him clearing brush. They swear that he's doing just as much work there as he does at home, which has to make you wonder - how much work is he not getting done in DC?

And Bill - trolls like anonymous and Boy Scouts selling popcorn eventually go away if you ignore them. Buy their crappy, stale popcorn once, though, and you just encourage them.

Uh, Ann, I am a Boy Scout leader in my spare time, which I don't get much of anymore....

Then, for the love of God, get some decent popcorn to sell. What is that stuff, caramel-dipped packing peanuts?

I wasn;t so much defending the popcorn as I was saying I don't like the BSA being compared to repulitrolls. I never pushed popcorns sales as the kids get so little out of it, most of the cash raised goes to salaries and programs ran out of the Council Office. Our troop sold Christmas trees for our fundraiser. The kids did alot better with that, and sometime I will post some shots of our trips to New Mexico that were to a great extent funded by those sales. Scouting is a wonderful organization that teachs love of the outdoors and a set of values not taught in sports or other youth activities,, It is not perfect, but does a good job me thinks. Yes therre is progress to be made, but nothing is perfect.
