Just Asking: Top 10 Things I (Occasionally) Think About

10. How can Rep. Dennis Kucinich (D-Ohio) justify going on Syrian television, attacking his own country and praising Syrian despot Bashar Assad? Why are liberals so self-loathing?

9. Doesn’t the most authentic voice in the presidential campaign belong to Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.)? When he speaks on matters of war and peace, terrorism or torture, people listen.

8. Now that we are on an irreversible path toward American troop reduction in Iraq, why is the left so unhappy? Do they really believe that America has no vital interests in a stable and non-terrorist Middle East? 

7.  What will happen first, Paris Hilton joining Mothers Against Drunk Driving or Congressman Jim Moran (D-Va.) receiving an award from B’nai B’rith?

6. Will O.J. Simpson’s defense of the Las Vegas armed robbery charges be that Mark Fuhrman planted another bloody glove? He was in town to attend a wedding, but who in his right mind would ask O.J. to be his best man?

5. How can Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton (D-N.Y.) base her presidential campaign on “experience” when she now “regrets” her two biggest decisions in government, Hillary Care I and her vote to authorize the war in Iraq?

4. If it is true, as The Washington Post asserts, that atheists are becoming increasingly vocal in denouncing organized religion, why don’t they recognize that unlike Islam, Christianity made its peace with a pluralistic society and separation of church and state, oh, about 500 YEARS AGO?  Thank God for that.

3. Is Alan Greenspan the latest to be snookered by Bill Clinton’s charm? Lost in all of his praise in his new autobiography for the 42nd president is the stark truth that Clinton raised taxes and did virtually nothing to reduce spending, a policy mix that the former Fed Chairman otherwise abhors.

2. Is it too much to hope that President Bush’s selection of Judge Michael Mukasey to be attorney general will be approved quickly and with bipartisan Senate support?

1. Please don’t tell me Lance Ito is now a judge in Las Vegas.
