PRAY FOR ISRAEL
I've added the Israeli flag to Kitty Litter's heading today as a reminder that Israel is in the fight for its life. They're fighting a war for us, too, because if they lose ... Well, let's not cross that bridge just yet. 'Tis better to practice positive re-enforcement. In the end, Spook 86 believes that the IDF will eventually carry the day , but at what cost?
Sometimes it's difficult to determine who is the greater enemy in the War on Terrorism: the terrorists themselves or those who oppose the War?
WAR THEY HATE?: Do they actually oppose this administration and Israel's government for reasons having nothing to do with the war?
GOTCHA! Terrorists caught using UN ambulances. Should we be surprised?

HILLARY GETS A BOOB JOB
Here is a video (8:34 minutes) of Daniel Edwards talking about how he came to do Hillary's bust. (Pictures of the finished bust are posted below.) There's an almost voyeuristic feel to this video, especially when he admits: "I was very attracted to Hillary Clinton, so [doing the bust] was a no-brainer for me." I had the distinct feeling that he seemed to struggle to not fondle her boobs.

DOWN MEMORY LANE
Back on December 24, 2003, R. Emmett Tyrrell wrote why he, as editor in chief of The American Spectator, affirmed President Bush as Our Man of the Year: He has shown himself to be a president of colossal achievement. He has faced up to international terrorism. If an earlier president had, America might not be remembering September 11, 2001 as another "date which will live in infamy." A rather good book by Richard Miniter, Losing Bin Laden: How Bill Clinton's Failures Unleashed Global Terror, irrefragably makes the case that America did not have to await Osama bin Laden's slaughter to take on the terrorists.
I was reminded of that article, and the book, when I read Brooklyn Boy this morning. His post has some great links delving back into some choice history on Slick and his cohort in crime, Her Royal C. Like this hilarious piece about Jay Leno, and the article about "The Communication Stream of Conspiracy Commerce."
Review is good. After all, those who cannot learn from history are doomed to repeat it.
HUMP DAY WITH THE COOKS
What would a day be without another chapter in the neverending saga of the Brinkley/Cook marriage meltdown? Today's involves politics. And since the Cooks are stalwart libs, you just knew that there would be a connection between Her Royal C and the Cooks' money.
HEEL HAIL$ HILL: The senator, who champions women's causes and children's issues, is the biggest recipient of Cook's generosity to politicians - raking in $13,000 from him since 2000 for her campaign war chests, according to records.
Asked by The Post whether she will return the contributions, Clinton said, "I'll have to look into it."
In August 2004, Cook gave $2,000 to the Friends of Hillary, which funds Clinton's Senate campaign.
Just days later, he cut a $5,000 check to HillPAC, the same day Brinkley shelled out $5,000. HillPAC is another fund-raising entity established by Clinton that she uses to support Democratic candidates around the country.
Back in June 2002, Cook gave HillPAC another $5,000 check. In July 2001, he chipped in $1,000.
Here's a tidbit on the Cooks from Page Six back on October 28, 2004: CHRISTIE Brinkley and her hunky architect hubby, Peter Cook, have apparently brainwashed their son, Jack Paris Brinkley Cook, 9. The boy wrote a letter to the editor of the Southampton Press titled "How I Feel," which states: "George Bush lies a lot and John Kerry will not lead us into war . . . George Bush said there were weapons of mass destruction, so he sent in all the troops. And did they find [any]? No, no, no, no, no, no, no!" He continues, "I think John Kerry will not lie to us and he will lead us to peace . . . [Bush] wants to go to war with Iraq, to get oil and finish his daddy's war, and if we let him get any further there will not be a world."
Apparently not everyone thought Peter Cook was such a devoted father figure.
GOOD RIDDANCE: CHRISTIE Brinkley's daughter, Alexa Joel, won't be sorry if her mother doesn't bite at Peter Cook's "take me back" plea reported by Cindy Adams yesterday. Hamptons sources say Cook, Brinkley's fourth husband, wasn't exactly a doting stepfather to the 20-year-old fledgling musician. "He's been very cold and mean to her," one insider told The Post's Braden Keil. "It's the main reason why she moved out when she was just 17." Their last argument occurred when Brinkley and Billy Joel's daughter, who didn't drive, called the Bridgehampton manse for a lift home at 11 p.m. Cook allegedly refused, told her to "walk home" and "never call this house at this time of night again." Alexa has been living in Manhattan ever since.
And, of course, since Samantha Cole went public for the PR, she's taking advantage of every opportunity.
Cindy Adams reports: THIS Samantha Cole, other "innocent young victim" of Peter Cook's, is also trying to jump on the gravy train. For her "Entertainment Tonight" sit-down, she showed at the Main Street Series Studio of hamptons.com. With her mother. Plus a carefully terribly upset attitude, which, I guess, she's been rehearsing for more than 10 years. The look was tousled blond hair, mini mini blue terry skirt, barely there tank top, and flip-flops. Clearly, this female's a client of Britney Spears' television sit-down wardrobe consultant.
And despite a carefully terribly upset attitude, she managed to pull herself together for photographers from Britain.
And why photographers from Britain care about this Christie Brinkley saga? Must be they ran out of lousy stories about the Queen's family.
Paid for the interview, Miss headline-grabbing Cole was subsequently overheard saying she signed an "exclusive deal with E.T.," but that this shouldn't stop her from spilling her gizzards to the tabloids.
Word to Samantha: Hon, save something for the DVD version.
ALL OF A SUDDEN HE'S SORRY
BFD. Now all of a sudden Peter the Pr^ck is "sorry" and "contrite." Now all of a sudden he admits to being "stupid." Now. Not when he kept his teeny-bopper concubine on his company's payroll at $50/hr plus gratuities. Now all of a sudden he thinks about his marriage. To date, Christie has not sued for divorce.
Cindy Adams was contacted by the Pr^ck's lawyer to deliver a message. To whom, exactly, I'm not exactly certain, because if the message was meant for Christie, why not tell her lawyer? But, no, the lawyer calls a highly respected gossip columnist, who's read by MILLIONS daily, and then he tells her to get lost, that "people like YOU" are making life difficult for poor poor Peter the Pr^ck. There's gratitude for ya!
'I LOVE MY WIFE & I'VE ALWAYS LOVED HER'
My sole participation is to see this message is delivered.
Christie Brinkley's husband, Peter Cook, about whom all civilization has recently read, wants to say:
"I love my wife. I have loved her since the day I met her. Please . . . I love her."
Then: "For a lifetime I've tried to prove how much I love her. This is an aberration."
Then, amid tears: "I'm sorry. I'm contrite. I'm stupid. Foolish. No excuse."
Norman Sheresky asked me to deliver his client's message. I meticulously wrote down Norman's words, which are Peter's. I then read my notes back to the lawyer who approved them.
So you say he wants this to go away. How can this go away?
"Well, for one thing, people like YOU can go away. Every day the media keeps refueling this story makes the whole thing harder. He, me, she, all of us, just want all of you people to go away."
