I just love the lede here:
In coordinated broadsides from London and Washington, Amnesty International accused the Bush administration on Wednesday of condoning “atrocious” human rights violations, thereby diminishing its moral authority and setting a global example encouraging abuse by other nations.
A) Since when did Amnesty International think we had any moral authority in the first place?
B) How ludicrous is it to suggest that the rest of the world is only now following our lead now we’ve led them down the abusive path?
Oh, Good God in Heaven. Voinovich has finally lost it. Check out this audio clip of our Senator in the floor of the United States Senate crying — crying! — over the nomination of John Bolton. Apparently, Voinovich ran for a second term in order to protect his grandchildren from the horror that is John Bolton.
Did I actually vote for this guy? Did I actually campaign for this loon? I am going to chalk it up to youthful indiscretion.
Hat tip: RadioBlogger.
UPDATE: You can find the video here.
First, Voinovich nearly derails John Bolton’s appointment to the United Nations. Now, DeWine is part of the cabal that reached a gutless and embarrassing agreement to avoid the filibuster showdown.
I am ashamed that I have not only voted for both, but have actually assisted both in their elections. I’ll vote for neither one next time around.
Update: This just occurred to me: I wonder, would the President have fared any worse in the Senate recently if John Glenn and Howard Metzenbaum were still serving, rather than the “Republicans” that replaced them? I doubt it.
Arrested Development is coming back!!

I SWEAR this picture has not been photoshopped. This comedy break courtesy of the City of Columbus.
Chrenkoff has the details.
This is an interesting and thought-provoking article. Apparently, folks in Texas are getting their panties in a bunch (so to speak) because the high school cheerleaders and dance team routines are “too sexy” and their outfits are “too skimpy.”
I’d like to chime in on this debate — I really would. But I have to say that I don’t think I can have an informed opinion on the subject until I’ve seen some video (or at least some pictures) of what they are talking about.
As a more popular blogger than I would say, “Heh.”
