Kool-Aid Apologists for Bush

As so many have said and written, perhaps Ms. Miers will turn out to be a good SCOTUS justice, but I'm not prepared to have faith in another Republican President's assurances that he "knows the heart" of the nominee. That's why I'm extremely proud of my favorite Conservative talk radio hosts—Bill Bennett, Laura Ingraham, Rush Limbaugh, and Sean Hannity—for resisting the temptation to join the Kool-Aid apologists like Sekulow, Hewitt, and Dobson (all three of whom I generally respect a great deal). I know the pressure must be intense for Rush & friends to close ranks with the President, but so far they're holding firm and trumpeting the fact that this is, at minimum, a very troubling nomination.

The Specter of Bigotry Past

Click on image for larger version

After all of the effort expended by conservatives to simultaneously win the White House, Senate, and House, why oh why did we allow Arlen Specter to ascend to the Chairmanship of the Senate Judiciary Committee? The whole point of the efforts for most Christian conservatives is to get good judges on the courts—especially the Supreme Court—but now we have this NARAL card-carrying windbag asking the president to nominate a justice who will "maintain the balance on the court." Since when was that a requisite consideration for a President?

Specter has even gone so far as to personally ask fellow conservative back-stabber Sandra Day O'Connor to continue in her SCOTUS role for as long as a year—presumably hoping that the President would take the opportunity to scour the countryside for a similarly spineless replacement for her. Perhaps worst of all, though, was Specter's resuscitation of the old anti-Catholic bigotry used against JFK so many decades ago. Along with Sen. Feinstein, Specter felt it very appropriate to ask Judge Roberts at his confirmation hearings whether his faith would interfere with his ability to be a good judge. If Specter himself has any religion, it's quite clear that it's not interfering with his activities one bit. What a disgrace!

Gonzales a Supreme? Just Say No, Dubya!

Click on image for larger version.

Confirmthem.com is reporting rumors that Karl Rove is making a last ditch effort to convince Bush to nominate the pro-abortion rights Attorney General Alberto Gonzales as the next Supreme Court Justice. If true, this could spell the end of the Republican Party as we know it. Say it ain't so!

Who Are These Guys, & What Have They Done With My College Football?

Click on image for larger version

"Big & Rich"—Does anyone else despise this band's association with ESPN's College Gameday as much as I do? My favorite show has been taken over by a Tom Petty wannabe, a mini-me Johnny Cash who takes an inordinate amount of pleasure in sticking out his tongue, and the Dancing Rickets Girls! Please, ESPN—for the love of all that's holy—go back to last year's format!

Feddie for SCOTUS!

Click on image for larger version
Let's dispense with the undercover lobbying and the hush-hush meetings to suggest potential Supreme Court nominees—we need an all-out campaign for the guy brave enough to proclaim that "stare decisis is fo' suckas!" If a precedent is worthless, overturn it! Come on, Dubya, we want Steve "Feddie" Dillard from Southern Appeal!

Update: "Feddie for SCOTUS" t-shirts are now available here.

The Hidden Life of Hilaire Belloc


Over the years, I have often wondered about this photograph of the great Catholic writer Hilaire Belloc. For those of you who have read any of the TAN Books editions of Belloc's writings, you know that this is the image of "Old Thunder" that appears next to his bio at the end of every book. Why the grim face? Why the seemingly awkward and uncomfortable pose? Why the piercing look of concentration?

Well, we at In Toon With the World have solved the mystery and unearthed a rare treasure that gives us Belloc fans a unique glimpse at a hitherto unknown aspect of this great man's life—an aspect that explains why this pose was so natural to our beloved Hilaire..

Here it is:
