Today’s post has no central, guiding theme. There are too many stories to talk about, and I can’t tie them together. Let’s just get to them, eh?
Uh oh Mitt Romney, your liberalism — and humanity! — is showing!
ABC’s The Note highlights this flyer which was posted by the Massachusetts Democratic Party on RomneyFacts.com. “As that shakes out, ABC has obtained one flier Romney doesn’t want you to see. It’s from 2002, with Romney was running for governor with Kerry Healey as his running mate. ‘Mitt and Kerry Wish You a Great Pride Weekend! All citizens deserve equal rights, regardless of their sexual preference.’ (It’s even pink.)” It was said to have been handed out during the 2002 gay pride parade.
How ever will you win the Republican nomination now? What ever will you do? (Besides deny it and swear that you’ve seen the light. Maybe point to someone you fired years ago and say, “They were responsible, not I! After all, what is a politician but another man’s creation? But I swear to you, I am my own man now!”)
More interesting than the kinder, gentler, hypocritical side of Mitt Romney is this article, which is critical of the Israeli attack on Syria. As you know, the rumor is that they hit a nuclear operating area aided by North Korea but there are intelligence analysts who are skeptical of the claim. I’m not sure who’s right or wrong, but I do think it’s interesting. Unfortunately, my sources in the CIA are limited, but still: espionage provides some of the most fascinating material in the world’s history, and this is great intrigue.
One more story to note: “Mukasey may soothe the rift between Democrats and Republicans.” Not a chance in hell. He’s better than Olson, yeah, but we must keep a vigilant eye on this government.
