The Week That Was
Nancy Morgan
November 5, 2007

A flood of encouraging news out of Iraq last week. It appears the surge is working, and we are winning the war in Iraq. Looks like al-Qaeda is toast. This is Bad News For Democrats .
The mainstream media and most Democrats were noticeably silent about this positive news. They were busy trying to block Bush's nominee for Attorney General. They then moved on to the urgent business of trotting out SCHIP (expanded health care) for the third time, despite a past veto and a promised future one.
In other Congressional doings, Muslim congressman, Rep. Keith Ellison, (the one who took the oath of office on the Koran) introduced legislation to ban the requirement of photo ID's in federal elections. And Hillary got snookered into actually confirming that she backs Spitzer's plan to offer ID's to illegals.
Congress somehow found the time to convene a committee to study the link between the California fires and global warming. The Senate is busy crafting a bill that would impose mandatory cuts in greenhouse gases. Looks like they're stoking the fires for their new war, the war on global warming. I'm betting they'll actually fight for this war.
Speaking of global warming, the forecasters are wrong again. Despite predictions of more frequent and intense hurricanes (because of global warming) it appears 2007 will rank as a historically inactive Tropical Cyclone year for the Northern Hemisphere. Darn. Also raining on the global warming 'crisis' is the news that IPCC member John Cristy has refused 'his share' of the Nobel Prize, saying it was based on a misunderstanding of science. Double darn.
Lots of strange goings on in our nation's institutions of higher learning. The University of Delaware was found to be subjecting its students to a shocking program of ideological reeducation, referred to in the university's own materials as a "treatment" for students incorrect attitudes and beliefs. This reeducation included the teachings that 'all whites are racist.' I'm not making this stuff up.

On the left coast, officials at a California public school had to cancel a cross-dressing day, following a slew of parental complaints. Meanwhile, a University of Maine student alleged her former professor offered extra credit to class members if they burned an American flag. Lovely.
Oh, and lest we forget. Disgraced former University of Colorado professor, Ward Churchill, is still holding classes on campus. Even though he has been fired.
Good news from the 'Maybe There's Justice After All' files:
* The judge who sued for $54 million bucks for a lost pair of pants has been removed from the bench.
* The father of a marine killed in Iraq won a nearly $11 million judgement against those crazy loons that picket funerals with anti-gay, anti-God signs.
* It appears Chavez's increasing anti-American antics are hurting him at the gas pump.
* Last, but not least, Henry Hyde will be getting a Presidential Medal of Freedom for opposing abortion.
Sometimes things work out OK.
Other good news:
* The economy picked up speed this summer, growing at a brisk 3.9%, the fastest in 1 1/2 years.
* The United States has regained its status as the world's most competitive economy, according to a survey released by the World Economic Forum. We're Number #1.
From the 'Truth Is Stranger Than Fiction' files:
Dennis Kucinich publicly questioned President Bush's mental health, after admitting that, yes, he did see an unidentified flying object while visiting with pal Shirly McClaine.
And that was the week that was.
