IT'S STRICTLY PERSONAL
I've had computer problems. At first I thought it was my server, Road Runner. Then I thought it might be the Net. I cleaned the cache, scrubbed out the ad-aware garbage, and checked for viruses. Whatever I did finally worked as the hardware seems to be running smoothly once again. In the meantime, I was able to get some more writing done, so all was not lost.
Here are the links I was going to post this morning. Considering that somethings on the net have the lifespan of a fruit fly, these may already be outdated, as in so ante meridiem.
8 Tony Snow Debuts at White House -- The Associated Press reports that Tony Snow didn't say much on his first day at the White House -- and Helen Thomas was waiting.
8 We are Winning the Battle for IRAQ
8 THIRDWAVE Dave reports, sadly, that the Hilton Corp. has succeeded in closing Fran OBriens Steak House: Our wounded men and women, recuperating at Walter Reed and Bethesda, will no longer be able to enjoy a night out with their family and friends courtesy of Hal and Marty. They began the tradition of free Friday night steak dinners to our wounded servicemenbers two-and-a-half years ago.
8 The '$5 Trillion Surplus' - The Myth that Refuses to Die
8 And in case you missed it, AnkleBiters once again examines those poll numbers: [Y]ou really wonder if the purpose of conducting it was to get good results, or push an agenda. (Love their new logo!)
8 As Wizbang points out: There's an old saying in politics that you can't beat someone with no one. It's the principle that's kept Ted and Patrick Kennedy (alias Old Pint and Half Pint) in office. And even though Bush can't run again, he's still somebody, and his designated successor will have that going for him (or her). The Democrats need to find someone that people can vote for, for a change -- running as "I'm not George W. Bush" hasn't worked for them yet.
8 MacRanger wonders: What if the MSM isn't reporting the news but trying to form a picture of trouble to discourage Republicans from going to the polls and Democrat to flood them. I know that's already the belief of most of us. However, after watching the absolute disbelief of Democrats after the 2004 election - where it wasn't even close - showed that the picture the MSM and the Democrats and all the left wing websites had painted were way off.
The point is that I believe and it's starting to show that the American people by and large will still support the Republican's next election and even into the 2008 Presidential election. Why? Primarily the rabid left is in decline and not in near enough numbers to effect any election. Secondly they have no "star". Even Hillary's so-called star is fading. Not to mention when you have Cindy Sheehan as your antiwar poster child it doesn't sit well with middle America - no way, no how.

8 Last but not least, this is not only personal, it's absolutely necessary: Censure Jimmy Carter
