But the local news is reporting the Patrick Kennedy will NOT be running for re-election.

Talk about ending a day on a positive note.

There is a new link on the Washington post.

YOWSA!

Update: Dan Riehl beat me by 9 minutes! but in fairness I was filling out the FAFSA for my oldest.

Dan Collins edged me too. And believe it or not I just found the nice note he left for me and Stacy today!

Update 2: Memeorandum has finally caught up.

There are protests in the streets, police are clashing with protesters and Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s “Nuclear state” statement is as far as I’m concerned hot air.

The Guardian is liveblogging protest from Iran but nothing that is happening today changes the same equations that were on the table yesterday the day before or last month.

If protest doesn’t stop the government either Israel or ourselves will have to, otherwise the equations of the middle east are changed forever.

And yes this stinks but stinks or no that is where we are.

That the results of our “4 horsemen of the Ablogoplispe poll” back in January carried the following results:

As of today: Glenn Reynolds is first with 18%, Michelle Malkin is at 17%, Robert Stacy McCain is at 13% and the following bloggers are EXACTLY tied with 7%, Iowahawk, Victor Davis Hanson, Powerline, Captain Ed, and Bill Whittle.

Sorry Valley of the Shadow, Pam Geller and Gateway Pundit didn’t place, not even a single write-in (Ace led the write-in’s with 1%)

The poll is still open if you want to vote and give us a solid 4th horseman.

…perhaps they can take a listen to the Archbishop of San Francisco in his message to Nancy Pelosi:

It is entirely incompatible with Catholic teaching to conclude that our freedom of will justifies choices that are radically contrary to the Gospel—racism, infidelity, abortion, theft. Freedom of will is the capacity to act with moral responsibility; it is not the ability to determine arbitrarily what constitutes moral right.
………..

While we deeply respect the freedom of our fellow citizens, we nevertheless are profoundly convinced that free will cannot be cited as justification for society to allow moral choices that strike at the most fundamental rights of others. Such a choice is abortion, which constitutes the taking of innocent human life, and cannot be justified by any Catholic notion of freedom.

via Kathleen McKinley who concludes thusly:

Pelosi is free to believe in the “the church of Pelosi” and cite that all she wishes, but leave the Catholic faith out of it. It’s clear she was raised with little understanding of it.

If you don’t want to be a Catholic Nancy, follow Anne’s example and be something else but don’t paint church teaching as something it isn’t.

…telling me I would be hearing from him this morning concerning CPAC blogger credentials.

That however is quickly becoming a moot point. I am $800 shy with now 4 days to go and the only reason why I’m that close is that a guest room has been offered to me.

In the last 7 days the “CPAC” fund has been as successful as Eric Idle’s attempts at Camel spotting.

When Robert Stacy stayed here my wife referred to it as “my summer camp”, there was a fair amount of work that it entailed and a lot less sleep than I’m used to, but it was an awful lot of fun. Continue reading “I heard from Eric Erickson from RedState concerning CPAC credentials”
