The Week That Was
Nancy Morgan
November 19, 2007

Last week saw positive reports pour out of Iraq on a daily basis. Most Americans weren't aware of the changing situation because Iraq has virtually disappeared from the radar screen of the old media.
A group of former Sunni insurgents [terrorists] have turned on al-Qaeda and aligned with the good guys, effectively ending al-Qaeda's two year grip on Baghdad. Al-Qaeda is now about as relevant as Bill Clinton. This is good.
Not ones to let good news get in the way of their political agendas, Democrats offered up their 41st bill designed to stop the war by tying troop funding to a troop pullout timetable. It died a quiet death. But, hey, at least they can say they tried...which was the point all along.
Government Remained Hard At Work Last Week;
* The Senate continued work on a farm bill that would authorise about $10 billion in new subsidies, this as farmers report record profits.
* Dennis Kuchinich offered a resolution to impeach vice-president Cheney. Though a poll showed more than half of likely Democrat voters agreed with him, the Democrat head honchos are trying to quash the resolution. They're embarrassed. That's got to be a first.
* NY Governor Elliott Spitzer decided to abandon his plan to issue drivers licenses to illegals - this coming just as Hillary decided to jump on board. Oops.
* Also in New York, officials are taking a brave stand against - pigeons. A new pigeon plan is in the works that includes the appointment of a pigeon czar and a $1,000 fine for feeding them. I'm not making this stuff up.
* City officials in Cambridge put a stop to a Boy Scout Troop's drive to collect care packages for our troops, saying it smacked of, gasp, politics.
* City officials in Broward County, Florida, have made it easier to file for divorce - residents can now file online.
* Government schools in Seattle are telling teachers that Thanksgiving is actually a time of "mourning" since it represents 500 years of betrayal. The good news is the school district did back down from a statement on their web site that claimed racists are 'whites'. Lovely
* The good news is federal immigration law is finally starting to be enforced. A contractor who admitted supplying illegal immigrant workers to the Kentucky home-building industry was sentenced to 18 months in prison. No word on whether he'll be allowed cable TV.
On The Campaign Trail:
* Presidential contender, Fred Thompson, won the endorsement of the National Right To Life Committee, the largest U.S. antiabortion group.
* Hillary was caught planting question at the latest debate. As usual, Hillary is shocked. This was followed by reports (those darn bloggers...) that CNN not only stocked the audience at Thursday's Democrat debate, but also controlled the questions attendees asked. Oh, for the good old days when the media could get away with this stuff.
Speaking Of The Media:
* Daily Kos founder, Markos Moulitsas, will be a contributor to Newsweek magazine. To be fair, Karl Rove was also invited on board.
* Muslim money is pouring into Hollywood. Price Waterhouse predicts the Arab world's entertainment and media market will grow by almost 60% over the next 5 years. This comes as good news to Hollywood producers, as the slew of anti-American films currently being released are bombing. Big time. I'm smiling.
* Speaking of Muslims: The un-indicted co-conspirator group CAIR (Counsel on American-Islamic Relations) scored a coup by persuading Office Max to drop their advertising on Michael Savage's nationally syndicated radio show. CAIR claims Savage is anti-Muslim - meaning Savage got caught telling the truth about the religion of peace.
In other news:
France was virtually shut down as transportation workers went on strike. They're outraged, outraged, that new President Sarkozy is trying to institute pension reforms. So far, Sarzoky is ignoring them. Alors.
Barry Bonds, one of the biggest names in professional sports, was finally charged with perjury and obstruction of justice for lying about steroid use.
A PEW research study shows black pessimism about racial progress in America is the worst its been in two decades. Thank you Je$$e Jackson. Oh, and you too, Al.
And finally, for those of you who think there is no justice: A car thief in Florida got eaten by an alligator as he jumped in a river while fleeing police. Cry me a river.
And that was the week that was.
