Amy Kane

Callimachus

Unitarian Jihad


"He instinctively can find the shining greatness of our American culture and does a good job of highlighting it (although he also does have those rare lapses when he writes about hockey, but that is something caused by impurities in the Eastern waters or something)."
Erik Keilholtz

He is a very shallow critic who cannot see an eternal rebel in the heart of a conservative.
Chesterton

The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.
Burke

Irish Elk

The Saner Element was seen prevailing in the Democratic Party in the last Campaign of '04. If only that were the case today.

A chef at the Windows on the World restaurant who survived the attacks on the World Trade Center writes on Fahrenheit 9/11:

So, how do we explain Moore's film to future generations? I wonder. More than that, I wonder how I would explain this film to Nancy D., Jerome N. or Heather H. I am sure you don't know their names, but their faces haunt me day and night. How would I explain to them that a film was made accusing the president and vilifying the soldiers, the same president and soldiers who are attempting to avenge their murders and protect other citizens. Moore has not only insulted the nation, he has insulted the victims of the terrorist attacks.

During his acceptance speech at the Oscars, Moore said, "Shame on you, Mr. Bush." Well, I say, "Shame on you, Michael Moore." Shame on everyone who supports this travesty of a film. Shame on a society that allows this sham of a film.


More on Moore: Ed Koch * David Brooks * Cox & Forkum

Cox & Forkum on Kerry-Edwards: Fine Young Cannibals.

Other recent gems from the cartoonists most deserving of a Pulitzer (but who probably won't get one any time soon) : Early Delivery * Aid and Comfort *

A mole goes inside the International Solidarity Movement that brought you Rachel Corrie. Comments Wretchard at Belmont Club:

I suspect that many readers of Kaplan's article will be struck by the underhandedness and malevolence of the hard Left. But readers with some knowledge of clandestine operations will be absolutely horrified by something else: there is no way any group of walk-in volunteers from America or Europe can be trained to be anything but cannon fodder by the short "orientation session" provided by these clowns. Those volunteers were expendable and no one, most especially the trainers, were going to let them in on that dirty little secret.

Think Mary MacGregor in a kaffiyeh.
