Scott McClellan's book has reopened the old case about Iraq and WMDs. Therefore, let's set the record straight. As they say, just look at the video:
In the meantime, let's thank former Sen. Dole for writing this about the book and its despicable author:
""There are miserable creatures like you in every administration who don’t have the guts to speak up or quit if there are disagreements with the boss or colleagues," Dole wrote in a message sent yesterday morning.
"No, your type soaks up the benefits of power, revels in the limelight for years, then quits, and spurred on by greed, cashes in with a scathing critique."
Bob Dole is a war hero. He was a great senator. We thank him for writing this about McClellan.

Bill O'Reilly has the best line on this book: "Wow. What a difference a year and cash can make"
Stephen Hayes wrote "No kidding":
"We weren't interested in a book that was just a defense of the Bush administration." Peter Osnos, founder of PublicAffairs books and publisher of Scott McClellan's new book. More here."
The angry left is out of control. They are emboldened and see blood in the water.
Last, but not least, they are going to go after Pres. Obama if he fails to deliver on their agenda.
Just wait: Wait until a Pres. Obama tells this crowd that he can't withdraw troops from Iraq as quickly as he promised them.
Trust me. It's coming: "Obama lied, people continue to die"
Just wait: Wait until a Pres. Obama tells them that he can't "tax the rich" without throwing the US economy into a massive recession.
The Dems have brought this on themselves. They've cultivated this culture of irresponsible Bush bashing and intolerance.
In the end, the angry left will consume the Dems!
P.S. This is why I keep telling my Dem friends, specially those who are not part of this angry left:
Pray for a McCain victory.
At least, you can sit in the bleachers and blame everything on Pres. McCain.

The left will eventually throw him overboard when the book is released and reality does not match the hype. Also, the media will dispose of McClellan when he turns out to be wimpy guest who can't speak well or present a coherent argument.
Again, why do you think so many of us wanted him fired in the first place?

Major league baseball is still recovering from the drug scandals. And now Josh Hamilton comes to the rescue of the game.
Baseball is always lucky. There is always something that comes along and saves the game from the stupidity of the owners and the players' union.
In '81, the strike nearly killed the game. However, the Yankees-Dodgers series got us to think about baseball again. NY had defeated LA in '77 and '78. The Dodgers had a great comeback and beat NY by winning the last four games after starting 0-2!
In '94, the strike killed the season but Cal Ripken saved baseball the following season.
Hamilton will be on the cover of the next Sport Illustrated issue. I'm sure that Commissioner Bud Selig must be smiling. (Texas Rangers' Hamilton getting national coverage)
Hamilton's story is something out of a Hollywood black and white movie.
In '99, Hamilton was the # 1 high school player in the country. He was drafted by the Rays and soon got into serious drug abuse problems. He was suspended. The Rays eventually let him go and the Rangers picked him up last season.
Today, he is hitting home runs and telling kids to stay away from drugs. He is also an early candidate to win the first triple crown since Yaztremski did it in 1967!
God must love baseball because he always sends a guardian angel to save the game for the fans! As the father of 3 sons who idolize sports stars, I'm very happy to see Josh Hamilton come along!

Senator McCain was in Denver and ran into a couple of predictable idiots. These are the people who believe in free speech as long as you agree with them.
During Sen. McCain's presentation, a couple of anti-war clowns started to yell whatever they were yelling.
McCain stopped and told them: I won't surrender in Iraq! We are winning!
Well done McCain!
P.S. Why don't you see conservatives behave like this at Obama's rallies? Ed Morrissey has a good thought:
"Maybe because conservatives can put together coherent arguments rather than mindless chants and mishandled banners."
Translation: We understand the evil in the world. They are still counting votes in Florida!

Dan Rather summarized the election around midnight.
The late polls predicted a very close 2000 election. In the end, the electoral map came down as I had believed, except for Wisconsin that went for Gore for a just a tiny bit.
It was the craziest night ever. I predicted a Bush win but no one ever thought that it would be this wild!
At 9pm, the networks called Florida for Gore. We were outraged because people were still voting in the Florida panhandle. As everyone knows, the networks reversed their decision and the rest is history.
Close elections are hard on both sides. It's not any fun to lose a close election. I cut the Gore people a little slack for feeling bad after campaigning for months.
I am not old enough to remember 1960, the other very controversial election in recent history.
I do recall 1976 when Carter and Ford went on until 3 or 4am.
The 2000 election was eventually decided but the left never accepted the results. Instead, they create this cottage industry about a stolen election.
This weekend, HBO is running a movie about the election.
Guess who stole the election? Bush!
Guess who was the evil woman? Kathryn Harris
Guess who was the poor victim? Gore!
Brent Baker has a review based on real history:
Reminder--Bush Won in Florida Recounts Conducted by the Media
Baker makes the case that Bush won every recount, including one done independently by newspapers.
Of course, this is not about votes. This is about myth. This is about Dems who can't accept the reality that the election was decided in Tennessee and Arkansas.
Here is an idea for a movie: How about a film about an incumbent president and vice president who can't deliver their home states?
Clinton couldn't deliver Arkansas. Gore couldn't win Tennessee.
Grow up Democrats! Get serious for a change!
