The Week That Was
Nancy Morgan
November 26, 2007

Last week, the U.S. saw a 'phenomenal' drop in violence in Iraq. Not one to let reality interfere with a political agenda, Rep. John Murtha on Tuesday dismissed the progress in Iraq and vowed to tighten the purse strings until President Bush accepts a pullout plan.
Harry Reid decided to keep the Senate is session in order to keep Bush from making any recess appointments. Two days before Thanksgiving, the Senate had a 22-second session. Would that they could all be so short. 
Gallup's latest poll finds only one in five Americans approving of the job Congress is doing, the lowest ranking since 1974.
Meanwhile, across the pond: France endured a week of chaos as transportation unions went on strike to protest pension reforms. President Sarkozy ignored them, the public got fed up, and the strike fizzled. Alors. I'm back to eating french fries.
The U.S. has lost a key ally. Australian Prime Minister John Howard lost his bid for a 5th term. Opposition leader Kevin Rudd scored a decisive victory and promptly announced the withdrawal of Australian forces from Iraq and said Australia will be signing the Kyoto treaty.
Culture War: 
Fort Collins was successful in its efforts to ban Christmas. It will now become a winter holiday, without red or green lights. Since this offends me, do you think I can get city officials to change their policy? And speaking of winter holidays, Human Rights Campaign is calling for homosexuals to boycott Wal-Mart in favor of Target. OK by me.
Useful idiots are on the increase as a new poll showed that two-thirds of Americans believe the federal government had advance warnings about 9-11 but chose to ignore them.
San Francisco has started enforcing its outdoor smoking ban, issuing the first $100 ticket in the two years the ban has been in effect. Oh, and the City By The Sea is also considering banning fireplaces. Meanwhile, a high school student in Kansas City was suspended for 10 days for merely talking about nooses.
109,263: That's the number of errors uncovered in proposed math textbooks that are under review by the Texas State Board of Education for distribution to schools in the fall of 08.
From The 'Gender Optional' Files: 
Michael was born a man. Michael transgendered himself into a woman, Michelle. Then, three months ago, he became Michael again - with the financial aid and spiritual encouragement of Calvary Chapel in Fort Lauderdale. I'm wondering which part he/she didn't like...

Our Courts At Work:
After a hiatus of 68 years, the Supreme Court has agreed to rule on the meaning of the Second Amendment. For those that attend government schools, this is the hotly contested part of the Constitution that guarantees a right to keep and bear arms. As in, guns.
A federal judge has ruled that the 'Flying Imans' lawsuit may proceed. The lawsuit was brought by six Muslim men who were arrested after passengers reported they were acting suspiciously. They were.
Five immigrants have filed a federal lawsuit challenging a requirement that workers speak English on the job.
In Other News:
President Bush and Laura gave a ringing endorsement to Hillary, saying in an interview that she could handle the immense challenges of the presidency better than any other Democrat. To me and other conservatives, this is baffling. Do you suppose Hillary has George's FBI file?
The good news is: The antiwar, anti-America film 'Redacted' bombed big time. It took in a mere $25,628 in its opening weekend in 15 theaters. Meanwhile, the fairy-tale romance movie 'Enchanted' debuted as No. 1 over the Thanksgiving weekend, taking in $50 million bucks. I'm smiling.
The climate alarmists from all over the world who headed to Bali to talk about the sacrifices regular folks have to make to save the planet from global warming got some devastating news. The airport was not big enough for all their private jets. I'm not making this stuff up. 
Sen. John Kerry has decided to take T. Boone Picken's million dollar challenge. Pickens offered $1M to anyone who could prove the Swift Boat Vets had lied. Kerry, four years too late, claims he can prove just that. We're still waiting. Yawn.
Speaking of Kerry. A British man was rushed to the hospital after his monster yawn locked his jaw, blocking his ability to breath or swallow.
Good News For Sen. Craig:
The World Toilet Association kicked off its inaugural conference Thursday, hoping to spark a sanitation revolution that will save lives through better hygiene and break taboos about what happens behind closed bathroom doors.
And that was the week that was.
