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

10. The AP reports that half of the faculty of the University of Alabama will be denied Crimson Tide football tickets for the coming year. Wouldn’t it be better if a college administration really put the brakes on faculty excess by, say, denying tenure to left-wing professors who don’t really teach?

9. Speaking of left-wing professors, what will occur sooner, John Edwards going to the Hair Cuttery or the president of Duke taking ANY action against the “Duke 88” who signed hateful letters against the Duke Lacrosse players? The left wing is firmly in control of American college campuses.

8. Why so little mention that the federal deficit is projected to fall substantially again in 2007 without a tax increase? Could it be that the national media is interested in the deficit only as an excuse to raise taxes?

7. How many of the attendees at the “Live Earth” concert this past week realized that the Al Gore-backed plan to cut carbon emissions by 90 percent in the U.S. and developed world would throw the world’s economy into a steep recession?

6. How many of the clueless rock musicians and Hollywood celebrities performing would be willing to give up their jet airplanes, SUVs and 14-piece orchestras to meet this goal?

5. Does anyone remember that the Clinton administration would not even put up the Kyoto Treaty for a Senate vote because it was so unpopular? The treaty was rejected on a non-binding vote of 96-0.

4. I think Cindy Sheehan could give Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) a run for her money if she challenges her in the Democratic primary. The left’s fury with the Iraq war knows no bounds and there is no bluer city in the country than San Francisco. Sheehan will ultimately be done in by her sheer kookiness and Big Business, which will flock to Pelosi.

3. How can Major League Baseball possibly justify awarding home field advantage in the World Series to the winner of the All-Star Game?

2. What exactly did Fortress Investments get for the millions in cash and options they paid to John Edwards? If I were a shareholder, I would be a little more than angry.

1. Are Republicans hypocrites on sex and Democrats on money?
