Saxby has been absent in this space for quite a while. And while I wing back to Charlotte this evening, he is patiently waiting at the boarding facility for his two Dads to be home for the weekend. (Saxby…. I’ll pick ya up tomorrow AM!)

Here are some shots of the boy taken over the past few weeks.

Advocate Breaks Stunning News: Bush Thinks Marriage Is Man+Woman

What on God’s green earth is the point of this “breaking news” email from our Gay Pravda, The Advocate? Other than to take a pot shot at the poll-weary President, of course.

Bush says marriage is between a man and a woman – Advocate.com e-news bulletin

At a contentious news conference Tuesday that was mostly about the war in Iraq, President Bush took another opportunity to restate his belief that marriage is for heterosexual couples only. When asked a point-blank question about marriage equality, Bush reiterated his position that marriage is the union of a man and a woman.

Framing the question in terms of the children and families of thousands of gay and lesbian couples married in San Francisco and elsewhere, the reporter asked him, “Are you still confident that society’s interest and the interests of those children in gay families are being met by government saying their parents can’t marry?”

Bush responded, “I believe society’s interests are met by defining marriage as between a man and a woman. That’s what I believe.”

Duh. Not only is he restating his own belief, and the belief of an overwhelming majority of Americans, the headline actually also accurately restates the law in most parts of the United States, increasingly so due to the results of popular votes on the subject. Maybe Advocate forgets that they are still swimming upstream?

More Ties Revealed Between Saddam and Terror Plans Against The West

Do you really think another round of UN sanctions (or continuation of the corrupt Oil For Food program) would have stopped the evil son from pursuing his stated plans. More from the files of Saddam. (h/t – HughHewitt)

************
From Worldwide Standard:

The latest issue of Foreign Affairs contains excerpts from a recently declassified report, produced by the U.S. Joint Forces Command, on the inner workings of Saddam’s regime. This paragraph, in particular, hasn’t received much attention in the media:

The Saddam Fedayeen also took part in the regime’s domestic terrorism operations and planned for attacks throughout Europe and the Middle East. In a document dated May 1999, Saddam’s older son, Uday, ordered preparations for “special operations, assassinations, and bombings, for the centers and traitor symbols in London, Iran and the self-ruled areas [Kurdistan].” Preparations for “Blessed July,” a regime-directed wave of “martyrdom” operations against targets in the West, were well under way at the time of the coalition invasion.

It’s also worth noting that on April 8, 1991, the UN Security Council adopted Resolution 687, the first post-Gulf War disarmament resolution, which declared, among other things, that Iraq “not commit or support any act of international terrorism or allow any organization directed towards commission of such acts to operate within its territory and to condemn unequivocally and renounce all acts, methods and practices of terrorism.” Eleven years later, on November 8, 2002, the Security Council passed Resolution 1441, which declared that the “Government of Iraq has failed to comply with its commitments pursuant to resolution 687 (1991) with regard to terrorism….”

Is there any doubt remaining to a breathing, open-minded human being that our intervention in Iraq (see Nazi Germany, circa 1933) prevented a hell of a lot more destruction and death than it has caused?

France Sticks Up Nose To iPod

And yet another reason to loathe our annoying, self-important “ally” on the other side of the Atlantic.

The dominance of the Apple iPod hit its first European stumbling block yesterday when French MPs voted to force companies to allow music downloads to be played on all types of digital players, not just their own.

Apple’s online music store, iTunes, dominates the global online music market, selling about 3m songs a day for 99 cents or 79p each. But the tracks can only be played on Apple’s own iPod, which is also the most popular digital music player.

Forgive me, but don’t the Members of the French Parliament have matters a little more pressing than quashing American pop culture?

WashPost Discovers American Majority

Big and long overdue kudos to the Washington Post for realizing that Republicans are the majority party in the USA and most of us do not have an “inside the beltway” mentality. (Scooter, who?)

A hearty welcome to former RedState.org blogger Ben Domenech who is now blogger-in-residence at “Red America” at the Washington Post.

Here’s some background on Ben (very impressive!).

Ben Domenech is a co-founder of RedState, the web’s leading Republican community blog. He began his career as a political journalist covering Capitol Hill, writing for numerous publications and working as a contributing editor to National Review Online. After 9/11, he abandoned the journalism field for a taxpayer-funded life and was sworn in as the youngest political appointee of President George W. Bush. Following a year as a speechwriter for HHS Secretary Tommy Thompson and two as the chief speechwriter for Texas Senator John Cornyn, Ben is now a book editor for Regnery Publishing, where he has edited multiple bestsellers and books by Michelle Malkin, Ramesh Ponnuru, and Hugh Hewitt.

Please make Red America one of your first stops of your blogging day! I sure will.
