Third Party Disaster Watch: Dear Pro-Lifers: THAT'S WHY WE HAVE PRIMARIES!

Third Party Disaster Watch: Dear Pro-Lifers: THAT'S WHY WE HAVE PRIMARIES!

These ideas floating about for a third party pro-life candidate if
Rudy Guliani wins the republican nomination are self destructive and
unprincipled. If you really want a pro-life candidate now is the the
time to ensure he's on the ticket. By giving him the nomination.

With as many as 6 supreme court justice appointment possible over the
next 8 years, a democratic president, and a democratic congress, the
far right risks losing the abortion battle permanently. This is
particularly strange as the most important strategic asset in the
pro-life battle, judicial appointments, will likely have a
historically high turnover in the next 8 years and all the Republican
candidates have promised to deliver the appropriate judicial style.
Strategically subverting the Republican candidate and handing the
Presidency to a Democrat and risking Democratic control of all three
branches of government is beyond foolish. It's so obtuse that the
claim of voting on "principal: seems dishonest.

It's time to grow up. Running a third party pro-life candidate is by
far and away most damage you could do to the unborn.

Conservatives Consider 3rd-Party Run

By RACHEL ZOLL – 5 days ago

Some of the nation's most politically influential conservative Christians, alarmed by the prospect of a Republican presidential nominee who supports abortion rights, are considering backing a third-party candidate.

More than 40 Christian conservatives attended a meeting Saturday in Salt Lake City to discuss the possibility, and planned more gatherings on how they should move forward, according to Richard A. Viguerie, the direct-mail expert and longtime conservative activist.

Third Party Disaster Watch

Frankly, I hope that the members of this group follow through on their threat. Not necessarily because it would result in the election of a Democrat, which it incidentally might.

No, my interest in seeing the Religious Right shorn of its influence and power is entirely spiritual, not political.

For nearly three decades now, beginning with the formation of the Moral Majority by Jerry Fallwell in 1979, Religious Right politicos have presumed to speak, if not for all Christians, then for all who label themselves evangelicals. (Although a Lutheran, I classify myself as an evangelical because as the root word, evangel, implies, I believe in the Good News that all who turn from sin and believe in Jesus Christ will live with God forever.)

I've heard this rational in a few places and I think it's wrong.  First, I don't think it will purge the Republican party of the religious right's influence.  In fact it will strengthen, as if a third party stunt results in the election of Hillary Clinton, the lesson will be clear:  appease the religious right or face electoral disaster!   Secondly, it's not worth enduring Hillary Clinton generally.  It's just not. 

Third Party Disaster Watch

Indeed, a new poll out from Rasmussen today says that more than a quarter -- 27% -- of Republicans would vote for such a pro-life third-party challenger. What's particularly interesting about this poll is that it offers GOPers this choice while explicitly naming Hillary and Rudy as the major party nominees -- suggesting that even the specter of a victorious Hillary wouldn't dissuade many Republicans from going third party.

Third Party Disaster Watch: Good News:

"No, I think a third party only helps elect Hillary [Clinton]," the ordained Baptist minister and staunch conservative told The Washington Post on Thursday. "I don't see that being a good strategy for those who really care about pushing a pro-family, pro-life agenda."

The Associated Press: Texas-OU Different This Year

Texas-OU Different This Year

By JAIME ARON – 2 hours ago

DALLAS (AP) — The old stadium will still be half orange and half crimson, with Bevo on one side and the Sooner Schooner on the other.

The State Fair of Texas will still be roaring all outside, with fans from both sides slipping out for a beer and a corny dog at halftime.

And the winning team will still get to take home the Golden Hat trophy.

Yet something is different about this year's Texas-Oklahoma game. Make that a lot of things, a lot of important things — and they all trace to last Saturday, when both teams were upset.

With Oklahoma stumbling against Colorado and Texas getting stomped at home by Kansas State, the stakes for Saturday's matchup of Red River rivals have been adjusted. No longer a probable top-10 matchup between teams jockeying for a spot in the national championship chase, it's now a battle between clubs trying to avoid being buried in the conference race.

"Everybody sees the big picture and everybody has the same goal in mind," OU receiver Malcolm Kelly said. "Both teams."

590 KLBJ NEWS RADIO - Breaking News Headlines and Video from 590 KLBJ

More than 65,000 football fans are filling the Cotton Bowl at Fair Park in Dallas today to watch the Texas Longhorns take on the Oklahoma Sooners in the Red River Rivalry. The winner will move to a 1-1 record in the Big 12, have bragging rights over their rival, and will posses the Golden Hat trophy for the next year.

The Sooners are ranked 10th in the nation and are favored going into today's game with 19th ranked UT. But Longhorn Head Coach Mack Brown says his team is ready. "Our kids have had a lot of energy this week," Coach Brown said. "Our guys have been really resilient after a loss, so they'll come back and play hard."

Both UT and OU have agreed to hold the game at the Cotton Bowl through 2015. The facility is undergoing a $50 million renovation.

After the game, listen to Longhorn Gameday with Jeff Ward, Ed Clements, and Geoff Ketchum on Newsradio 590 KLBJ.

Visitors coming in to Dallas for Texas-OU game will face traffic

By Pegasus News wire

Football fans heading north to Dallas to the Texas-Oklahoma football game should plan for extra travel time this weekend due to heavy traffic and construction on Interstate 35 north of Hillsboro.

A four-mile work zone in Hill County will have lane reductions in place for northbound traffic, providing only one lane in each direction at the I-35 east/west split north of Hillsboro.

Why Texas-OU Matters: It's an anchor tenant for Cotton Bowl, Dallas | Dallas Morning News | News for Dallas, Texas | Opinion: Editorials

Today is what all the fuss was about.

Well-meaning but misguided people who conflated the Cotton Bowl game with the Cotton Bowl stadium missed the point about spending tens of millions in city bond money to fix an aging, open-air football facility.

We wish our friends at the AT&T Cotton Bowl – the New Year's Day game – all the success in the world at their new domed home in Arlington, but a shopping mall can survive the loss of a Banana Republic. If Macy's leaves, the mall closes.

And Texas-OU – for its irresistible combination of tradition and economic impact – is Macy's for the stadium at Fair Park.

KXAN.com - News, Weather, Sports - Austin, TX | Avoid Texas-OU Game Traffic With Alternate Routes

housands of people are hitting the roads Friday to see the Texas-Oklahoma game.

If you're headed to the game, or if you have to drive north on Interstate 35 for any reason this weekend, take some alternate routes.

Besides the usual heavy traffic, fans are going to run into a major snag about an hour south of Dallas.

Once you reach Hillsboro, northbound traffic will be reduced near the I-35 split. That will last about four miles.

A Stitch in Haste Hillary Romney Clinton?

Hillary Romney Clinton?
George Will, on Mitt "Null Set" Romney's soulless "et tu" abandonment of Larry Craig:
If Romney fails to translate his intelligence and accomplishments into the Republican nomination, one reason will be the suspicion that there is something synthetic and excessively calculating about every move in his increasingly embarrassing courtship of those who are called "values voters."
That is exactly right. It would also be exactly right to say much the same about Hillary Clinton.

Clinton has been running for president since December 2000, and every step of the way she too has been "synthetic and excessively calculating." From carpetbagging her way into New York State to preposterously being assigned to the Armed Services Committee and beyond — her every move has been determined by a singular goal: to be elected president.

Romney, Clinton health care plans similar-experts | Reuters

BOSTON, Oct 5 (Reuters) - When it comes to health care, Republican Mitt Romney loves to take swipes at Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton.

He calls Clinton's plan, which would require every American to have health insurance, "European-style socialized medicine" and derides it as inspired by "European bureaucracies."

Romney is quick to remind supporters of the U.S. senator from New York's dramatic 1993 failure to reform U.S. health care, which many Americans felt overstepped the role of first lady.

Rudy Giuliani this morning blasted Hillary Clinton's idea for a $5,000 savings bond for every newborn as a $20 billion "socialist idea" and mocked the notion of sending a "Hillary bond" to children of billionaires and illegal immigrants alike.

Friday Night News Round Up:

A Deeper Look At Blackwater, Bob Orr Examines The Workings Of The Controversial Security Company - CBS News

(CBS) Blackwater's version of coming attractions is shown in an action-packed promotional tape that makes it clear Blackwater has the guns and grit to tackle the toughest problems.

The North Carolina-based private security firm makes millions training police swat teams and military sharpshooters with courses like "Tactical Pistol II," "Extreme Officer Survival" and "Helicopter Sniper."

But it's the war in Iraq that has been Blackwater's biggest bonanza, CBS News correspondent Bob Orr reports.

Since 2003, U.S. taxpayers have paid Blackwater more than $1 billion in protection money - most of it to guard diplomats, ambassadors, and dignitaries in Iraq.

The Inevitability of Musharraf? - TIME

Has there ever been an election campaign with so many anti-climaxes? A surprise ruling by Pakistan's Supreme Court today on President General Pervez Musharraf's eligibility to run for a second term technically threatens his bid to stay in power and has many Pakistanis scratching their head over what is going on in their country's power politics. The last few months have been rocked by controversy over Musharraf's eligibiity even as he feuded angrily with the judicial branch of government. Today's ruling appears to be another round of that tit-for-tat — though tempered by another long-running drama, Musharraf's budding alliance with his old nemesis, the exiled Benazir Bhutto.

Britney Spears gets one last chance from irate judge

The fed-up judge in the Britney Spears custody battle is turning the screws on the scandalized singer for defying his demand that she clean up her act.

She's already lost full custody of her little boys to her ex-hubby, and now the judge is even threatening to take away visitation rights if her erratic behavior continues.

"The court expressly indicates that a missed test, refusal to submit to a test or failure to respond to the testing agency's call ... shall be deemed ... a failed test," Judge Scott Gordon wrote in documents released yesterday.

The ruling gives the child services monitor who is to supervise Spears' visits with Jayden James, 1, and Sean Preston, 2, the power to pull the plug "immediately" if she does anything crazy.

It also puts hard numbers on the amount of therapy Spears must complete by her next court date, Oct. 26 - or else.

A Battle Foreshadowing a Larger Health Care War - New York Times

WASHINGTON, Oct. 5 — The debate now raging here over the children's health insurance program offers a cautionary lesson to Democrats running for president. It shows how hard it will be to persuade many Republicans to sign on to their vision of universal coverage.

If Democrats and Republicans had so much difficulty agreeing on a plan to cover 10 million children, most of them from low-income families, how can they ever agree on legislation to guarantee insurance for 250 million or 300 million people?

Many of the questions that provoked fierce argument in the battle over the child health bill would be even more divisive in a debate over universal coverage: Should the government subsidize insurance for middle-income people? How much government involvement is too much? How much should the government spend, and who should foot the bill?

In vetoing a $35 billion expansion of the State Children's Health Insurance Program on Wednesday, President Bush said the bill would improperly allow higher-income families to benefit from assistance meant to help poor children.

Craig's Reversal Dismays Many Back Home in Idaho - New York Times

MIDVALE, Idaho, Oct. 5 — Dismissing the wishes of the bigwigs in Washington often scores points for politicians here in the reluctant stretch of the Republic known as the state of Idaho.

Then there is the unresignation of Senator Larry E. Craig.

"A lot of Republicans in Idaho think they need to sit down on a good shrink's couch right now," said Tracy Lotz, a former vice chairman of the state Republican Party. "We're in shock."

Unaccustomed to political relevance, Idaho has endured more than a month of political parody. And that was before Mr. Craig provided new material on Thursday by saying he would stay in office after all, notwithstanding a court ruling forbidding him to withdraw his guilty plea in a restroom sex sting.

Bush Defends Interrogations, Saying Methods Aren't Torture - New York Times

WASHINGTON, Oct. 5 — President Bush, reacting to a Congressional uproar over the disclosure of secret Justice Department legal opinions permitting the harsh interrogation of terrorism suspects, defended the methods on Friday, declaring, "This government does not torture people."

The remarks, Mr. Bush's first public comments on the memorandums, came at a hastily arranged Oval Office appearance before reporters. It was billed as a talk on the economy, but after heralding new job statistics, Mr. Bush shifted course to a subject he does not often publicly discuss: a once-secret Central Intelligence Agency program to detain and interrogate high-profile terror suspects.

Kim Jong-il claims to be the world's Internet expert; Al Gore jealous

North Korean leader Kim Jong-il met with South Korean President Roh Moo-hyun this week in the North Korean city of Kaesong. This meeting is only the second ever meeting between North and South Korean leaders.

One topic of conversation during the meeting put forth by Roh was a request that South Korean companies operating in an industrial park in the North Korean city of Kaesong be allowed the use of the Internet.

The response from the Dear Leader, according to Yahoo! News , was, "I'm an Internet expert too. It's all right to wire the industrial zone only, but there are many problems if other regions of the North are wired."

Canadian Soldiers Come to Aid of Indians In Victory Against the Yankees | Cleveland Leader

It looked like the Cleveland Indians were destined to lose due to bad luck and missed opportunities against the New York Yankees this evening at Jacobs Field. The Tribe had to call out a secret weapon that has been part of Indians baseball throughout the decades: The "Canadian Soldiers" (or Mayfly's) who fly off Lake Erie in late September and early October each year. The combination of a rattled Joba Chamberlain, Grady Sizemore's speed, and the pesky insects were enough to give the Indians a tie game against the Yankees who looked assured of the victory after 8 and half innings of play.

Also: canadian soldiers bug, canadian soldier ants, flying ants, canadian soldiers ants, canadian soldier insects.

When the Indians rescued Lofton from Texas before the trade deadline, they were looking for offense from an outfielder other than Grady Sizemore. Manager Eric Wedge initially tried Lofton at the leadoff spot, then dropped him to seventh and shifted Sizemore back to the top. That combination ultimately helped the Indians take off.
