Helen Thomas is one of the very few W.H. press corpse persons who did her job during the Bush years.

Ari Fleischer, on the other hand...

Dumb arse thing to say, though. When Coulter resigns for calling Thomas a "an old Arab" then maybe Thomas can retire.

Yes.

Well, it's an odd thing that this very interesting line of discussion, which is entirely academic as it's quite clear that Israel is going NOWHERE anytime soon, and if they go at all there's going to be some radioactive fallout associated with the event, nonetheless is not even allowed to be explored.

The decision to allow the Zionists to create the Jewish state in the mandate, necessarily displacing those who already lived there took place in the context of the post-holocaust environment immediately following the second world war, shepherded as it was by the victorious powers and their postwar institutions.

It would be a fascinating discussion to consider how we might deal with the same conditions in a multilateral world not dominated by victorious powers, less impacted by biblical edict and more concerned about the rights of people of color.

But, alas, while you and I might have that conversation over a bottle of Sailor Jerry's and a couple bowls, that entire line of conversation is off limits to those who might offer some important lessons....

Said gentleman still married as of this posting.

The wire service also quotes the new bride as saying of the couple's 26-year age gap: "I'm sometimes not able to relate to the average person my age."

This is because she is very sophisticated & a world traveler, unable to relate to callow 33-yr. olds, & has nothing to do w/ daddy issues.

The couple met six years ago, while she was running a charity golf tournament and Limbaugh was in the process of divorcing for the third time.

Rogers is a direct descendant of President John Adams, and her father attended the U.S. Naval Academy with the future Arizona Senator (and 2008 Republican Presidential candidate) John McCain, reports NewsCore.
