Ok, no, I lied - no Super Bowl trivia, because I'm not going to embarrass myself by displaying my ignorance of the game. (Televised sports are not my subject - unless you're talking horses. Then I'm interested!) But, for you Colts fans, CONGRATULATIONS!! I am so glad that the winning coaches have no problem proclaiming their faith in and dependence on their Lord and Savior - good for them. For the Bears fans, maybe next year; keep trying, and don't give up!
First up, Ward Smythe presents Former Senator John Warner: An Idea Whose Time Has Come , and adds, "I've submitted several, so pick and choose as you see fit." Here are Ward's other excellent entries:
- Friday Whine and Cheese (I really liked this one, LOL - Ward plans to make it a regular feature)
- Show the troops you REALLY support them. (I've gotta get this! Actually, I need to send a gross or so to William Arkin)
- If it's Tuesday, the Democrats want to run… ( "Away." The Democrats want to run away - gee, Ward, make sure you catch those typos!)
- How to recognize a Hasbro terrorist? (I think Ward and Scott White are on the same wavelength. Scott! Get me that correct link to your post!)
Isophorone submits Biden Seeks to Shift Blame, a parody on Joe Biden's disparagement of Barack Obama. Ack! A "new commandment"! I have too much trouble trying to keep the first Ten, and now you want me to add a twelvth?!
Andrew Clem, of Blog With No Name (now there's an honest guy!) sent in Novak on Luntz & GOP 'denial', (See, Andrew? I caught the proper title! Thanks for the e-mail reminder) which discusses Robert Novak's column on Frank Luntz, and includes a two-year blog compendium of conservative discontent about the Grand Old Party.
Rick Sincere News and Thoughts presents Is 'Income Inequality' a Legitimate Worry? Rick asks an excellent question, and you should read and evaluate the reasoning behind his answer: "Put more simply, by constricting the capacity of the affluent to create jobs and buy things, one ends up creating more unemployment and ultimately punishing the poor and middle classes."
Adam sent in Righteousness of the Devout posted at Sophistpundit.. Oddly enough, it's probably not what you think: Adam is rather disgusted with presumptuous intellectuals, and his essay is quite absorbing. I'm going to need to re-read it!
DJ McGuire at the Right Wing Liberal is also on a roll this week. First, you need to read why we need to stay in Iraq until 2010. Then, if you're considering voting for Warner's re-election next year (NOT! - OK, that's one of my posts...), you should enjoy how DJ slices and dices Virginia's senior senator. Of course, it wouldn't be fair to leave Webb out, so DJ takes him to task as well. And then DJ eats the WaPo's idiot "military expert," William Arkin, as a midnight snack. *crunch, crunch* Not too tasty, though; it's more than a little rotten.
Ew. What a disgusting person! Fortunately, I have a patriot whose post will wash that bad taste out of your mouth: BadRose (who's really quite wonderful, LOL) talks about Making the Ultimate Sacrifice. She talks about the simple dignity and grace of a Gold Star Mother and concludes
I share the vision of Vicki Strong, the vision of a free and prosperous Iraq. If she watched the State of the Union address this week, I hope she didn't notice the Democrats who refused to stand and applaud even the notion of victory in Iraq.
How about rooting for America for a change?
Now, we've got the wild team up: Kilo and Wise Girl from Spark It Up!!! Wise Girl starts us out with Warriors in Pink - and I must admit I was confused at first (Hello? Pink??) until I realized that she was discussing breast cancer. Heck, yeah! Cancer survivors are definitely warriors!
Kilo gets into the act with Pro Art Cancels Remaining Shows - and it's probably a darn good thing, too, with that mess of an attempt at a "budget." Geeze, even I can see that being six-figures in the hole is a bad thing, and I'm no numerical genius!
Scott White - one of the new ODBA members - sent in a link to the Hasbro Terrorist Eradication Team, but it doesn't appear to be working. I am totally behind, but I'll e-mail Scott and see if I can correct this with the proper link - because *I* want to read it!
That's all for this edition - I think it was a very good round up, and I want to say THANK YOU for all these great posts!
Next week, DJ McGuire of Right Wing Liberal will be hosting, so submit your blog article to the next edition of Virginia Blog Carnival using the carnival submission form, or by e-mailing vablogcarnival -at- gmail-dot-com. Past posts and future hosts can be found on the VBC index page.
