Byron York on FEC & Bradley Smith on National Review Online
"I think we would benefit by thinking of the First Amendment less as a sort of bizarre, libertarian impediment to badly needed regulation than as a well-thought-out approach to how political activity ought to work. And the basic premise is: It is very dangerous to give the government the power to determine who gets to speak and who doesn't." - Bradley Smith

No Sports Action Today
Today is one of the few days in the year when there is no professional competition going on. No baseball - the All-Star Game is tomorrow (big whoop). The Tour de France has a rest day. No golf, tennis, NASCAR, WNBA, etc. Nada. Pretty depressing.

But here's something that'll cheer you up - the French are whining about losing the 2012 Olympics to London. It just brings a smile to my face.
Paris Mayor Bertrand Delanoe, the motor behind the French capital's failed bid to host the 2012 Olympic Games, on Monday accused British authorities of breaking IOC rules to clinch victory for London.

"They crossed the yellow line with respect to the IOC rules," Delanoe told France-Info radio Monday after a meeting of the Paris city council. "Both Mr. Blair and Mr. Coe crossed the line."
I guess cheese-eating surrender monkeys would know something about yellow lines.

Lil' Perjuror
Looks like Lil' Kim is going to be doing a Lil' Time for telling a Lil' Lie under oath.

(Okay, I stole that from someone in The Corner. But it sure is funny.)

A Hero Falls
I had the privilege of briefly meeting and shaking the hand of Admiral Stockdale while attending the Naval Postgraduate School. Each week we attended a convocation, and the school was able to get luminaries such as Admiral Stockdale to give speeches. I confess I don't remember exactly what Admiral Stockdale said that day, but I do remember his indomitable spirit, and the fact that he didn't let his tortured, broken body slow him down. I wish I had a better story to tell about him, but I don't. I just know that he was strong and brave and courageous.

He passed away yesterday. May he Rest in Peace, and may we never forget the sacrifices he made for his fellow POW's and his country.
