How Bad Days Start

Do you ever have that problem – when you look in your sock drawer early in the morning and you grab black socks thinking they’re navy or vice-versa? Yeah. Well, I don’t have that problem because I keep my sock drawer segregated. Black on the left, Navy on the right, khaki and other colors in between.

But I don’t keep my slacks (hung on hangers in the closet) segregated. And, just like most people with the socks, I didn’t notice my navy slacks were actually black until I was walking into my building at work this morning. And, truth be told, since black goes with [most] everything, my black slacks don’t look that bad with my sweater. Unless you happen to notice the navy socks…

Required Reading

Best. Editorial. Ever.

There is only one issue in this election that will matter five or ten years from now, and that's the War on Terror.

And the success of the War on Terror now teeters on the fulcrum of this election.

If control of the House passes into Democratic hands, there are enough withdraw-on-a-timetable Democrats in positions of prominence that it will not only seem to be a victory for our enemies, it will be one.

Unfortunately, the opposite is not the case -- if the Republican Party remains in control of both houses of Congress there is no guarantee that the outcome of the present war will be favorable for us or anyone else.

But at least there will be a chance.

I say this as a Democrat, for whom the Republican domination of government threatens many values that I hold to be important to America's role as a light among nations.


Ge read it all. It gets better.

John Kerry apologized, or so he thinks:

Statement of Senator John Kerry

As a combat veteran, I want to make it clear to anyone in uniform and to their loved ones: my poorly stated joke at a rally was not about, and never intended to refer to any troop.

I sincerely regret that my words were misinterpreted to wrongly imply anything negative about those in uniform, and I personally apologize to any service member, family member, or American who was offended.

It is clear the Republican Party would rather talk about anything but their failed security policy. I don’t want my verbal slip to be a diversion from the real issues. I will continue to fight for a change of course to provide real security for our country, and a winning strategy for our troops.

Except, the only apology in that statement was a “regret[s] that my[his] words were misinterpreted.” There was no misinterpretation. The words are clear, their meaning succinct.

Now – he may have misspoke, but he was not misinterpreted.

The man is wholly and completely unable to take any personal responsibility. And to think he was almost the president of the United States…

He still has not apologized.
