Patton's speech. To get the blood pumping.
Mark Steyn. The last line of paragraph two is precious.
One smart parrot.
Check out the stirring video here.
New York Mag sez, "[Columbia University President Lee] Bollinger is a First Amendment scholar, a useful credential for a man who’s been forced to fathom the limits of academic freedom."

Uh-huh. Equate patriotism and support of troops with one political view, liberals, and you're gonna keep wondering why people question your patriotism.
Ronald Reagan's birthday was yesterday, and here's a nice piece of history to go with that.
Finally, all those people criticizing Bloomberg (pareve as he's being) for not being ra-ra about the courts forcing gay marriage on us should read this.
