It’s been a slow day today…I actually am ahead of my reading (which is eerie the more I think about it).
Let’s see….the BBC took one on the chin. Not like I really ever watched the BBC or relied on it for my news. I’m currently perfering the Israeli media for my news.
Is it just me or is anyone else of hearing about: The scott peterson/michael jackson and martha trials? Same goes for the campaigns. Every morning when I turn on the news, it’s a constant cycle of those things, and then there’s the interviews with the campaign chairs (*yawn*)
Last night there were all these rumors that we were going to get a big snow storm dumped on us here in Boston. Well, the weather people were wrong, we got maybe 3-4 inches. Back home in Cleveland, my little brother had a snow day (which very rarely happens), and apparently, down in MD things shut down as well, as Jay can attest to.
One of my friends was on the Daily Show tuesday night. If you saw the show, and remember when Rob Corrdrey was at Lieberman’s NH HQ–she was the one in the yellow sweater, who Rob was hugging (constantly). Yeah–that was her. Apparently they also interviewed her, but they cut that part out.
I was watching Dennis Miller’s show again tonight (I was really bored people!) I’ve got to say, for what he occasionally (make that often) lacks in humor, he’s scored some good guests this early. The Governator, Sen. McCain, Rudy Gulianni…and his “varsity pannel” is quite interesting. Suprisingly Horowitz has yet to explode while on the panel.
Speaking of exploding–apparently I missed Ann Coulter on Hannity and Colmes–she’s always an interesting guest to watch…if I can’t fall asleep, I’ll perhaps watch the rerun.
Back to Miller’s show, Horowitz jumped out to defend the PATRIOT Act–and the other two people on the panel want it gone (Willie Brown and someone named Naomi Wolf). Wolf is doing the whole shtick about the squashing of dissent, domestic espionage (against enemies of the administration)…is J. Edgar Hoover back? Then she drags Israel into the whole mix, and says that Israel doesn’t politicize Nat’l security, and the like.
She’s wrong by the way. In Israel, they don’t have freedom of speech, there is a gov’t censor. And Nat’l security is probably the issue which has swayed the past few elections over in Israel. I mean why do you think that the Likud did so well in the last election ? Simply because they’re (at least supposed to be) stronger against terror than the Israeli left (Labor, etc.) Some people never learn.
Okay, that’s enough random thoughts for now….
