HAPPY BIRTHDAY, LAURA BUSH!
It's not polite to ask, but she was born in 1946. You do the math.
8 BROKAW BLOWS OFF THE MARINES
[NOTE: Link will be timed out by tomorrow.]
The NBC anchor, whose brother was a Marine, agreed months ago to speak at Wednesday's ball at the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum. But he ditched it at the last minute to hang with the royal couple at the D.C. shindig, which was also attended by President Bush, First Lady Laura Bush, former first ladies Barbara Bush and Nancy Reagan, Condoleezza Rice, D.C. Mayor Anthony Williams, cellist Yo-Yo Ma, and Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld.
Brokaw, who penned the acclaimed "The Greatest Generation," about the American war effort during WWII, tapped his NBC colleague Jon Siegenthaler to sub for him.
Sigenthaler opened his remarks by saying, "Let me tell you why I'm here. I got a call from Tom Brokaw the other day, and he asked me, 'Jon, Do you believe in free speech?' And I said that of course, I believed in free speech.
"So Tom said, 'Great, because I'm going to ask you to give a speech for free.' And then he explained that he'd agreed to emcee this event months before, but then he'd been invited to a dinner at the White House, and had been faced with a choice. Tom told me, 'Even my mother told me I was making the wrong choice.'"
8 Aw Geez, Not These Crappy Polls Again. Alright, Once More Into The Breach: [O]nce again, it is up to us here at ABP to show you why these polls are utterly meaningless when it comes to predicting what voters will do come 2006.
8 THE book that’s got Libs fuming: The book itself is an easy but entertaining read. What sets this book apart from a book by say, Al Franken, is that Schweizer isn't out to humiliate those he profiles in a personal way and take mean-spirited swipes at them. Rather, his goal is to see if prominent liberals who espouse public policies such as affirmative action, no school vouchers, and high taxes for the rich abide by such principles in their private lives. What you read in the book is illuminating.
Which begs the question, If Al Franken Sues, Will the MSM Cover It?
8 Poor Lorie is still sick, and Mrs. Media Matters, who’s pregnant, gets sick just thinking about this certain someone =:O
