The Crazy Write Winger

You can't give a segregationist a birthday greeting, but you can give him a medal, like President Clinton did, or you can sleep in his house as Democrat presidential hopeful Bob Edwards plans to do.
The meeting, sponsored by the South Carolina Democratic Leadership Council, is scheduled to take place in Charleston at the William Aiken House, named for a man who was once the South's largest slaveholder.
Maybe Trent Lott should check in to get back into the NAACP's good graces.
I wonder if this is what Senator Bill Nelson (D-Fla) meant about budget cuts and safety.
When the government made the historic decision in 1996 to turn over the day-to-day operations of its space shuttle fleet to a private company, perhaps the most critical task it faced was crafting a contract that would balance efficiency with safety.
Let's see, who was President in 1996? That would be Bill Clinton.
Nah, couldn't be.
PBS and the "nonpartisan" Center for Public Integrity are all a-twitter over some draft legislation leaked from the Justice Department that purports to expand on the Patriot Act passed subsequent to the September 11 tragedy.

WARNING: This file is 12MB in size. PBS has a "low-resolution" version, but it's almost unreadable.
CPI is the same gang who kept harping on the Bush-Harken non-scandal. They're about as "nonpartisan" as Terry McAuliffe, Chairman of the DNC.
If you scroll down on the PBS site, you'll see related links on "Civil Liberties and the Patriot Act." Funny, but not one link (other than the one to the Department of Homeland Security) says anything in favor of the Patriot Act. So much for unbiased journalism by taxpayer-funded PBS.
