Good Riddance To Bad Rubbish

So, Sen. Arlen Specter (RINO, PA) has officially announced his long-awaited switch to the Democrats.

In other news, it has been discovered that the Sun rises in the East and sets in the West, and ice melts above 32° Fahrenheit.

Don't let the door hit you in the butt on the way out, pal.

The money quote: (hang onto your seat)
"I now find my political philosophy more in line with Democrats than Republicans," Specter said in a statement posted on a Web site devoted to Pennsylvania politics and confirmed by his office.

He's just figuring that out now? After how many years in the Senate? 28?

Some people are slow learners. Let's just hope the good folks in the Keystone State elect a proper Republican next year. Preferably, a real Republican, and not a RINO.

Stupid Quote Of The Month

Somewhere in all our reading yesterday, we came across another one of those ridiculous phrases that could only have been cooked up by some lunatic lefty:

"Our strength is in our diversity."

(Unfortunately, we neglected to bookmark the site.)

Somehow, the phrase e pluribus unum ("out of many, one") comes to mind. Contrary to what the collectivists of the world would have you believe, our strength is in our unity. It was not without cause that the Founding Fathers named this country the United States of America, and not the Diversified States of America.

This is why our enemies -- both foreign and domestic -- are forever trying to divide Americans into groups. If they can get you to focus on your group identity, they can get you to forget your individual identity. Beyond that, they can get you to forget that we are all supposed to be Americans -- without any hyphen.


Quote Of The Month

Hat Tip to Res Ipsa for this one.
"Political correctness is a doctrine, fostered by a delusional, illogical minority, and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.."


Quote Of The Month

...if not the year. From (who else?) Miss Ann.
It's something in liberals' DNA: They think they can pass a law eliminating guns and nuclear weapons, but teenagers having sex is completely beyond our control.
Go. Read. Enjoy.


The Mother Of All Typos

(Hat tip to The Old Sarge, who has friends in the area.)

It looks like someone's career in journalism is over. There are some things that spell checkers just can't catch.

(Now what's that saying about "the glory of God is intelligence"?)

We have, however, a nagging little feeling that says this might not have actually been a typo. Time will tell.

Update: Just an odd thought. Didn't Christ call twelve Apostles? What happened to them, and where did all these Cardinals and Archbishops come from?

Just curious.
