Tom Wolfe On George Bush

From National Review: In an article that appeared in the Guardian, novelist Tom Wolfe was quoted as saying,
"I think support for Bush is about not wanting to be led by East Coast pretensions. It is about not wanting to be led by people who are forever trying to force their twisted sense of morality onto us, which is a non- morality. That is constantly done, and there is a real resentment."
There is a lot of truth to that. There was (and is) such a stark difference between John Kerry and George Bush, that for many who were not real strong advocates of George Bush, this resentment of "the East Coast pretensions", the elitism, and this "twisted sense of morality" was soundly rejected by the electorate. Thus, many voters who were otherwise tepid towards the Bush administration scurried towards him and pulled the lever in his favor at the voting booth.

UN Climate Conference

By Marc Morano, CNSNews.com Senior Staff Writer.
Buenos Aires, Argentina (CNSNews.com) - The United Nations climate change conference here is being panned as a "conference about nothing" by a free market advocate."......

........"This is a conference where on the very first day, the participants agreed that they would not issue an agreement at the end of the conference -- which is the only thing they typically produce [at these conferences] besides lots of C02," Horner told CNSNews.com on Sunday."

Hillary Watch

It should come to no surprise, I guess, that Senator Hillary "Robb-em" Clinton is already getting started in doing an extreme makeover of herself and trying to appeal to the masses as if she is mainstream. She is getting started on her positioning for her 2008 presidential run. From CNSNews.com:

"Senator Clinton Using Immigration to Appeal to Republicans(CNSNews.com) - Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton is staking out a hard-line position on illegal immigration - a position that is more conservative than that of President Bush, the Washington Times reported on Monday. Read News on the Web"
