Liberalism: Why think when you can “feel”?

Carville threatens to commit hate crime

Recall my previous post about Bill Clinton calling GOP advisor Arthur Finkelstein (who is gay) “self-loathing.” Well, the Ragin’ Cajun himself, James Carville, had this to say about Finkelstein on the little-watched CNN show Crossfire:

I wouldn’t attack him verbally. I would have walked up and cold cocked him. I think he should have just laid him out. I mean, you know what I mean? Let’s hit the pavement, boy. I mean, you say you’re going to my wife what these guys did, the way they maligned John Kerry and everything? I want to just — I’d have just hauled off and slugged him. I would have. But at any rate — (Applause). Let me — I think anybody can understand somebody come to their wife saying — I tell you what, if he wouldn’t have said that, I would have called him and said, “What kind of man are you? What kind of husband are you?”

Ah, yes…those peace-loving liberals! Don’t attack Saddam Hussein, but attack a gay Republican instead! I guess because gaybashing isn’t a hate-crime yet (though the libs purport to want to make it one), he wouldn’t be guilty of anything beyond simple assault.

You have to love those “pacifists”, don’t you?

Liberal media seeks DeLay’s scalp with GOP assist

I’m not late to the punch here. I haven’t commented much on the DeLay issue, because anyone who follows this blog likely knows that the Democrats and their willing accomplices in the press are after Tom DeLay, and they want him personally and politically destroyed. The latter is fair game, while the former is not.

A HUGE problem I have, though, is that the discredited New York Times went fishing for a story by a Republican that was anti-DeLay. They contacted former Representative Bob Livingston, who was Speaker of the House right after Newt Gingrich (until he confessed to an extramarital affair and resigned thereafter). When Livingston told the NYT that he would be glad to write a pro-DeLay column, the Times told him in so many words: “Don’t call us…we’ll call you!” Livingston concludes that the libs are after DeLay because he’s been an effective leader.

The nation’s largest fishwrap wasn’t interested in that! I mean, just how in the hell are you supposed to defame someone when people in his own party have the temerity to say nice things about him? Geez, that’s no fun!

Personally, I don’t care about DeLay one way or the other. He seems like a pretty abrasive and arrogant man. Having said that, seeing the MSM go after him reflexively makes me want to see him screw the left really hard and come out on top.

Feeding tube ordered for Cuban detainee

From NewsMax:

A judge cleared the way for federal officials to have a feeding tube inserted in a Cuban exile who is on a weekslong hunger strike to protest his detention as a suspected spy.

Juan Emilio Aboy was at Jackson Memorial Hospital’s inmate ward, hospital spokeswoman Lorraine Nelson said Friday.

A day earlier, U.S. District Judge Paul Huck agreed with another judge’s order to “involuntarily administer nutrients” to Aboy through a stomach or intravenous tube, and to restrain him if he attempts to remove it.

“The decision to not eat was his choice. A court order was issued allowing the U.S. Public Health Service to take any necessary precautions in the interest of his health,” said Nina Pruneda, spokeswoman for U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement in Miami.

It was not immediately known when a feeding tube might be put in. A hearing was tentatively set for next Friday to hear from Aboy and consider whether the government has legal authority to feed him.

His attorneys didn’t immediately return calls seeking comment.

Aboy, 44, has been held for three years without criminal charges but faces immigration charges. Federal investigators claim he worked as a Cuban spy in the 1990s.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Dexter Lee requested a court order on April 8, saying Aboy had lost 29 pounds. Aboy has said he has lost 35 pounds and is becoming weak. Judge Shelby Highsmith then issued a temporary order that was upheld Thursday by Huck.

Aboy denies the espionage claims.

I hate to touch on the Schiavo thing again, but this once, I will: Does anyone think it’s a tad bit inconsistent (to say the least) that an American citizen can be deprived of food and water and starved to death, while a non-citizen who doesn’t want food or water has a judge force it upon him?

I don’t care what your views were of Terri Schiavo…I’m interested in your views of this Cuban detainee. Just so long as you don’t say that it’s OK to force-feed the Cuban because it’s for “national security” purposes!
