Holding the Democrats accountable

"We decided to buy property in Crawford to use until George's resignation or impeachment, which we all hope is soon for the sake of the world," Peace activist Cindy Sheehan said in a newsletter. "I can't think of a better way to use Casey's insurance money than for peace, and I am sure that Casey approves."

Proof of liberalism

The Washington Times "Inside Politics" reports that when Fox’s Roger Ailes spoke in Pasadena to the Television Critics Association approximately 100 of the 150 in attendance walked out in protest of their indictment of Fox’s conservative spin. The Washington Times reports:

Said the Media Research Center ( "Can you imagine 100 TV critics, upset by CBS's liberal bias, walking out on CBS chief Les Moonves or CBS News President Sean McManus? Or even a dozen critics turning their backs on the scandal-scarred Dan Rather? Such open disdain for Fox News Channel's uniquely non-liberal approach speaks volumes about the media elite's arrogant belief that it's journalistic malpractice to give a fair shake to conservatives."

Frist on stem cells

Sen. Bill Frist (R-TN) is quoted in the Des Moines Register on how his support of killing embryos for stem cell research doesn’t disqualify him from pro-life Republicans:

Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist said Thursday that Republicans who oppose abortion rights could still support him, despite his backing of legislation this month that would have relaxed restrictions on embryonic stem-cell research.

"The Republican Party has both the diversity of views - still, a pro-life position - and the support of science," the Tennessee Republican, who is weighing a 2008 presidential bid, said in an interview before his scheduled weekend trip to Iowa. "There's not inconsistency there."

Frist was referring to a bill that passed the Senate two weeks ago, with his support, that would have overturned restrictions President Bush placed in 2001 on federally funded stem-cell research.
