U.S. Newswire : Releases : “Web Traffic to Washington Times, Drudge Report, Rush Limbaugh.com Is Down…”
Ann Coulter is coining money by attacking widows and orphans — a new game for her since she’s run out of Democrats, living and dead, to defame and verbally pillage. You would think with all of the attention the promotion of her new book has given her would raise visitor numbers at her Web site, http://anncoulter.com. Nope. Traffic there is down 10 percent.
Bobby Eberle doesn’t understand what a free press is. Does he really believe the government should regulate the press in America?

Yes, there is a freedom of the press, and that freedom comes with responsibilities. There are many classified programs which would be fascinating to know about. But that doesnâ€™t mean I have a â€œrightâ€? to know them. When we are talking about fighting a war on terror, the â€œpublic interestâ€? is also served by seeing to it that the government is able to fight the most effective war possible. The actions by the New York Times hurt this effort, and they should be held accountable for these actions.
You can’t make this stuff up. Apparently, our children are under attack by the kind of people who live in college towns! Damn those higher learnin’ types! Who dare they not give a damn about irrational fears like this?

Once other parents learned what these books contained, many joined with Taylor in asking the school to take action. The public outcry was great. A parents’ rights group was formed, “Parents Protecting the Minds of Children,” with dozens of parents joining the cause. The local paper wrote that this issue generated more letters to the editor than any issue in recent history. The story of the battle of the books became the paper’s story of the year for 2005.
But Fayetteville is a college town, and liberals turned out in droves to cry “censorship” and shout down Laurie Taylor’s courageous efforts to protect the children.
It gets worse:
Some of the books to which the Fayetteville parents object have received awards, making it more difficult to demonstrate that they lack serious literary or artistic value.
You just know it was some lefty-wing nutcases with a New England Ivy League education that handed out the book awards.
Can you imagine what this world would look like if the kids in Arkansas grew up to be tolerant adults?
While the GOP often points to examples of fraudulent voter registrations under names like Mickey Mouse and Daffy Duck to supposedly show how fradulent vote manipulation can be on the left, they fail to make a signficant point since nobody would possibly show up at the polls to cast a vote under the name of a cartoon character. Thus, the voter registration fraud issue leads to no actual voting fraud.
Compare this to efforts on the right to keep people from voting legally by making it hard to get registered, making decisions on how many voting machines per capita will appear in various precincts to effect the wait time, and scrubbing the names of registered voters from the polls. Each of those tactics has a huge impact on actually votes cast on election day. This is about as far from the values this country was founded on as one could get outside of a dictatorship.
As a reminder, here is an excellent breakdown of what went down in 2000 under the leadership of Katherine Harris.

Debating gay marriage: … Jeers for Coleman
Debating gay marriage: … Jeers for Coleman
I was profoundly disappointed that Sen. Norm Coleman favored the gay marriage ban. His encouragement of this constitutional ban is wrong on so many levels.
It says he is in favor of installing discrimination into the Constitution. It says he does not understand human sexuality. It says he promotes others to stay equally ignorant and lacks the courage to foster understanding. It also says Coleman likes the idea of wasting the Senate’s time when far more important issues need attention.

I was shocked earlier today to see Ann Coulter’s brand new book, “Godless: The Church of Liberalism,” available on the day it came out for only $4.99 through GOPUSA. It’s amazing how much they’re discounting the thing to what may be one of her best audiences.
However, that has now been blown away by Human Events, who just sent out a personal email from Ann Coulter herself trying to give away the darn thing:
Coulter: “Tick off a liberal. . . subscribe today to HUMAN EVENTS and get my book Godless — FREE.”
So take your pick: 40% off at Amazon, 82% off through GOPUSA, or 100% off through Human Events. Is anyone paying people to ‘buy’ Ann’s book yet?
Poor Ann Coulter. Her new book came out today, and it’s already been heavily discounted to her core audience. GOPUSA is offering the $28 book for $23 off the cover price! Just $4.99 for the book on the day it came out.
To top things off, Ann’s keeping busy fighting a $5000 fine and 5 years in prison for voting fraudulently in a Florida election. Poor thing.
THE BRAD BLOG: “Ann Coulter ‘Lawyers Up’ to Face Felony Voter Fraud Charges”
Lambiet reports today that Coulter is now lawyering up to fight the charges that she knowingly registered to vote in Florida at the wrong residence (using her real estate agent’s address). That, despite signing an “oath” on the registration form swearing to the truth of the information provided.
Seriously. Why else would his defense department first ignore the Geneva convention’s policies, and now choose to omit the policies from the DD’s policies?
PENTAGON TO DROP BASIC GENEVA RULE / But State Department objects to removal of protection from degrading treatment
The Pentagon has decided to omit from new detainee policies a key tenet of the Geneva Convention that bans “humiliating and degrading treatment,” according to military officials, a step that would mark a potentially permanent shift away from strict adherence to international human rights standards.
Is torture a compassionate or conservative policy, Mr. President? The man you appointed doesn’t seem to be living up to the standards you claimed to hold during your campaign. What are you going to do about it?
This scientist probably thinks he’s making a sound argument for oral contraception, but he’s sorely mistaken. He’s underestimating the power people possess to ignore reason.
Controversial rhythm method study revealed
A British study suggests the Roman Catholic Church-approved “rhythm method” may kill more embryos than other methods of contraception.
