  My kids rock!
I was just watching my kids from around the corner. My four-year old daughter was creating some art on her computer, while my ten-year old son was teaching and encouraging her. Unconditional love runs rampant through our home. I'm just glad I'm smart enough to notice. 
  "One is a fluke. Two is a pattern. Three is a trend."
This was a comment by one of my very liberal friends, regarding the line of 'whistleblowers' emerging from the Bush administration. If Bush wasn't covering up something, why are these highly connected people publicly bashing the Bush administration regarding Iraq? While I concur with the fact that a pattern is emerging, I disagree with his conclusion. Sure, there is a pattern; 1. All are disgruntled employees. 2. All kept the 'information' secret until they were able to write and publish a book on the subject. 3. All of them made previous public statements (while still employed) that contradict most of what they published. 4. All of them, if their accusations are true, withheld information vital to the well-being of the American public until they could position themselves to profit from it. Yep. Looks like a pattern to me.... 
  Bob Woodward keynote speech...
I just got back from D.C. where I was audio engineering a trade show for one of my clients. Bob Woodward was the keynote speaker, and everyone was a-buzz about the bombshells he was going to drop on Bush in his soon to be released book. As I was expecting a liberal assault, his opening with a few Condi Rice jokes did not surprise me at all. But, to the disappointment of many in the audience, he was unable to comment on the contents of the book due to his publishing contract. So he spent the bulk of his time talking about his last book (yawn), and Nixon (yawn). He is a much better writer than a speaker. However, during the Q&A session that followed, he was asked point blank by a Brit if he thought Bush was a liar. His response was "He's not insincere." Why couldn't he just say 'no'? Bush recently gave him the most intimate access ever given to a journalist by a US President E-V-E-R. You'd think he'd know...

So, Jose... How's that appeasement policy working out? What a dumbass....
