A Message to College Football Teams

Minnesota, Northwestern, South Carolina, and LSU - beware! I am on a 4-game losing streak picking the bowl winners (after winning the first 9 games), and I have picked y'all to win tomorrow. I suppose that you can blame me if you lose.

Of course, if things go as they did for Michigan on Wednesday night, the refs might be the ones to blame.

No More "Nashville Truth?"

This headline doesn't surprise me, because, having dealt with Governor Bredesen's Nashville over the past few months, I'm not sure if there is such a thing as "truth" in Nashville.

Actually, the line refers to Glen Dean's "Nashville Truth" blog, which has gone the way of Christmas packaging. However, Glen is still blogging, but with the new, improved site at "Christian Libertarian." (The blogroll here has been changed to reflect this new address.)

Is Ford, Sr. Out to Sabotage Ford, Jr.?

As Ford, Sr., attempts to chase ghosts and fabricate tales regarding the Memphis election that saw his sister win his indicted brother's seat, you have to wonder if all of this is some effort to hinder his son's U.S. Senate bid. Because that is exactly what Ford, Sr., is doing.

As Tennessee Republican Party Chairman stated recently:

"(E)very time (Ford, Sr.) opens his mouth is 100 less votes for his son."

I would add that every AP story magnifies those words by ten-fold.

Merry Christmas!

Have a Merry Christmas! Remember why we celebrate, how much He has given us over the entirety of 2005, and that what is to come is glorious all because of Him.

Another difference between Memphis and East Tennessee

Thaddeus Matthews has unearthed the new voting machines for Memphis, as approved by the Ford family.

No word yet as to whether John "The Dealmaker" Ford will be the only bidder on the contract with Shelby County.


Prayers for Tony Dungy and his Family

I've already hit my knees this morning for Tony Dungy, a great man and head coach of the Indianapolis Colts. Coach Dungy's son, 18, was found dead in his Tampa apartment early this morning. A cause of death has not been announced.

Coach Dungy is a strong, humble man - a leader of men - but, more importantly, he is also a brother in Christ. My prayers go out to the Dungy family in this time of sorrow.

MORE: I know I have posted this previously, but Coach Dungy's interview in The Chattanoogan earlier this year is a window into where this man's heart stands.

Clinton Makes Gay-Marriage Video for Elton John

Bill Clinton, Harold Ford, Jr.'s friend and campaign fundraising buddy, has created a video to be played at singer Elton John's gay wedding.

How can Ford continue to run as being against gay marriage when all of his out-of-state fundraising champions (Bill Clinton, San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom) are apparently supporting gay marriage?


Federal Judge Bans Talk of Intelligent Design

And with this ruling, the hammer strikes yet another nail in the coffin of public education.

Homeschooling and parochial schools are looking better and better every day. (And not just for epidemiological concerns, either.)

MORE: Before you think this was some organized attack by some Leftist wacko judge, please note this profile of the judge who issued today's ruling in Sunday's New York Times. Judge Jones is a Republican, failed Congressional candidate, and apparently sees nothing wrong with giving interviews to the New York Times in the midst of a high-profile trial.


Campaigning for Alito?

I just received this press release from Progress for America, a group dedicated to the notion that President Bush should be allowed to choose his judicial appointments without obstructionism:


Judge Alito 2006: "A Resolution Worth Keeping"
29 Alito Supporters Embark on 3 Day, 18 State Barnstorming Tour

WASHINGTON - Progress for America (PFA) today announced an 18-state barnstorm by 29 of Judge Samuel Alito's clerks, personal friends, mentors and former colleagues in advance of the January 9th Senate Judiciary Committee hearings (

Alito's supporters will travel around the country calling for fair and swift hearings and an up or down vote to confirm Alito to the U.S. Supreme Court. While participating in grassroots events and earned media activities, they will specifically emphasize his extensive qualifications and character, and directly address unfair attacks and mischaracterizations from his critics.

"Judge Alito has the judicial temperament, intellect and personal integrity to be a superb Supreme Court Justice. Coming from a wide array of backgrounds and ideologies, who better to deliver this message than the people that know him best - his former clerks, personal friends and colleagues?" said Christian Myers, Executive Director for Progress for America.

"By opposing the Alito nomination, we liberals run the real danger of shooting ourselves in our own left foot," said Susan Sullivan, former Alito clerk (1990-1991) and member of the American Civil Liberties Union and Planned Parenthood.

PFA also unveiled a new "travel diary" section on their website that will include an interactive map of the United States, summaries of all state travel and commentary from the Alito clerks as well as the PFA state field teams. To view the travel diary, please visit:

Wow. I expected a typical PR campaign to combat the flood of misinformation and spin that the Left will unleash on this nominee, but this organized effort is unprecedentedble and, I dare say, unprecidented for a judicial nominee. If anyone attends one of these rallies, I would love to read a report on your impressions.


Ford's Family To Be His Downfall?

Blogging for Bryant opined yesterday that Harold Ford, Sr.'s delusional rants regarding his sister's race for the Tennessee Senate were sabotaging Harold Ford, Jr.'s campaign for the U.S. Senate. As usual, B4B is ahead of the curve.

In today's Commercial Appeal, the headline reads, "Ford Jr.'s Family Problems." Tennessee Republican Party Chairman Bob Davis was quoted in the article as saying the following:

"Congressman Ford (Senior) has a history of making irresponsible statements. What I do know is that every time he opens his mouth is 100 less votes for his son."

Since Harold Ford, Jr. has decided to proudly stick by his family (see quote here), he might want to reconsider that MSNBC offer (if it is still on the table), as I doubt that this is the last time that we hear from his father during this campaign.


Memphis Election Results Must Not Stand

At least six dead people voted in the election between Ophelia (Sister of Harold and John) Ford and Terry Roland, a contest where Ford was certified the winner by 13 votes. Reports of election day voting fraud were traveling the news wires before even one vote was counted. One of the most notorious political families in all of Tennessee political history is involved, one that is not unfamiliar with threats and intimidation.

However, that may not be enough for the Tennessee Senate to act.

I suppose that I should take heart that a special Senate committee is even considering an appropriate action, although the remarks of Senator Michael Williams, the Republican leader of the committee, casts much doubt on whether an appropriate conclusion will be reached. Williams is worried about disenfranchising voters, which is ridiculous since a future election would do no such thing while a fraudulent one - as the last one certainly was - does disenfranchise those citizens of Shelby County who voted properly because it watered down their vote. The correct action to prevent a disenfranchisement, Senator Williams, is to conduct another election, perhaps with TBI monitoring.

I'm still waiting to be convinced that the work over the past few election cycles that resulted in the first GOP-led Tennessee Senate was worth the effort. All I have seen is Tim Burchett cozying up to the Democrats, Jamie (Hagood) Woodson shepherding Bredesen's education version of TennCare through the Senate against the advice of actual conservatives, no one wanting to pass tough ethics reforms, and John Wilder still able to make fascinating comments blasting the FBI and TBI in favor of (alleged) criminal activity from his perch as Lieutenant Governor.

This would be a good place to start acting like the majority party in the Senate. Let's not kowtow to a process that we know to be corrupt.

Romney Not Running for Re-election in Marxichusetts

Mitt Romney announced Wednesday that he would not seek re-election as the only major Republican elected official in Massachusetts, undoubtedly setting up his run for the White House in 2008.

I think that Right of Gray hits this one out of the park:

"There is no way this guy could run for president without the platform of elected office. Besides, he could never win the South. Just look at his stance on the issues of importance to Southerners: Endorsed legalization of RU-486, personally against abortion, but pro-choice as governor, supports benefits for gay partners, believes sexual orientation should not preclude being a Scout, and supported the assault weapons bill and Brady Bill. Romney is your typical Northeast Republican with no future in presidential politics."

Brett Arends believes (ala Bob Corker) that money alone makes Romney viable. Taking Romney out of the picture, I hope it never comes down to cash functioning as the kingmaker.

Cacciaguida thinks that we are too quick to dismiss Romney, and perhaps we are. However, for me, it comes down to better potential candidates (read: George Allen) with a sound ideology that could carry more than Utah and its 5 votes in the Electoral College.


Churches Closed on Christmas

Blogs and MSM sources alike have been discussing the decision by many churches to not have Christmas morning services. One of the better columns criticizing those churches comes from Jeff Adams, who has many good points in defense of services next Sunday morning. I'm not sure I am for placating the Easter-and-Christmas-Only crowd, as Jeff seems to be, but I still see where he is coming from.

Surprisingly, I don't have a strong opinion on this one. Yes, I do feel that churches should provide the option to attend that morning, as they should every Sunday morning. As a Deacon of Immanuel Baptist Church, I supported the resolution to keep our doors open on Christmas morning (although we have changed the start time to 10:00 A.M. and cancelled Sunday School classes for that morning). However, my personal attendance is another matter. Because of having to travel Christmas morning, I will more than likely attend a Christmas Eve candlelight service and have that be it (besides traditional readings from "The Bible" on Christmas morning). I can't - in good conscience - criticize others for not attending a service that I more than likely will not attend either. So, my position seems to be that I will not hold it against others who don't attend Christmas morning services, but I am a bit perplexed as to why a church wouldn't hold services on that morning - especially on that morning. The option should be there for all - believers and those who may be lead to believe.

Exposing the ACLU

Since many mainstream outlets are claiming that there is no movement afoot to minimize Christmas by such forces as the ACLU, I highly recommend this piece from Nedd Karieva. The argument presented by the ACLU is to point at the few cases where they happen to represent Christians (such as this piece by some troglodyte named Michael M. Bates) and claim the ACLU as the great defender of religious values in America. Karieva combats this argument with facts and cases, items that tend to confuse and frustrate liberal non-Christians. He shows that Christians only stand a chance of having the ACLU on their side if their Christianity is a minor issue in the controversy and the case fits into the grand plan and mission of the ACLU.

Read the whole Karieva article if you have the time.

Corruption in Tennessee Government? Shocking...

Bredesen's staff is now hiring an outside firm to "investigate" corruption and cronyism in Tennessee government. (I write "investigate" in quotes because when one pays $200,000 for a study, one usually gets what he pays for - in this case, a clean bill of responsibility. In this case, the irony is that there may be cronyism involved with the selection of the firm, which has contributed money directly to Bredesen through some of its top officials.) This is a one titanic waste of money.

Am I being too cynical? Perhaps, but I don't see why the hens should expect much when the foxes hire a third party to investigate how the foxes are entering the henhouse.

(This is the same line of reasoning why you haven't seen a post here regarding ethics reforms in the wake of the "Tennessee Waltz" indictments. Who really believes that the lawbreakers will pass rules that prevent them from breaking the laws? What's next - allowing the incarcerated to rewrite the Tennessee Sentencing Guidelines?)


Progressive Insurance Chairman Gives $8.5 million to ACLU

The American Family Association is informing its supporters that Peter Lewis, Chairman of Progressive Insurance, has given $8.5 million to the ACLU.

I don't have a policy with Progressive, but if I did, it would be cancelled before the day ended. Yes, it is Mr. Lewis' right to give his money to anyone that he wants. However, it is also the right of every Progressive customer to do the same by purchasing a policy from one of their rivals.

RIP - Betsy Pickle

No, the Knoxville News-Sentinel's film critic did not die, but her career as a film critic seems to have passed away.

I have remained one of Betsy's staunchest defenders over the years. As a former film critic myself (in a time that seems eons ago), I found that Betsy's tastes and style seemed closely aligned with my own. Many called me crazy, but I resisted. That resistance has now surrendered. Upon the urging of my friends, I closely examined Betsy's reviews as this year progressed. I was about to write off Betsy when she touted the excellence of The Dukes of Hazzard, which was one bad ride that Roscoe should have driven off of a cliff. However, I gave Betsy one last chance at redemption. Surely she could laud some of the fine movies that were coming out this Christmas season, right?

Well, here is her review of The Chronicles of Narnia.

For what it's worth, the VOLConWife and I saw the film based on Lewis' masterpiece late Saturday night at the Regal Pinnacle 18 (best theater in the area - hands down). Narnia is one of the best films of 2005. (I will save my judgment as to if it was the best film of 2005 for the final week of the year, when I plan to release a "top ten" list.) Betsy is disappointed that it wasn't The Lord of the Rings. However, she seems fine that Aeon Flux isn't The Matrix (or even The Fifth Element), so there seems to be some sort of double standard in place. Also, Betsy writes:

"(T)he Christian symbolism and themes in the movie are there only for those determined to see them."

That's funny. The VOLConWife and I remarked as we walked out of the theater that only a moron could miss the obvious Christian allegory and characters. Even the little tykes exiting the theater with us got it, and they appeared to be just old enough to be in elementary school. Yet, Betsy didn't get that...

I'm not sure whether Betsy's steady diet of liberal ideology and "Big Brother 6" have eaten away at her brain, but it seems that she can no longer be trusted for good film reviews.

Hasta la vista, baby. Like Fredo in The Godfather: Part II, Betsy, your reviews are dead to me.

More TVA criticism

It was nice to see The Tennessean join in denouncing TVA's gluttonous bonus policy in the face of rate hikes, even if the Nashville newspaper was nearly two weeks behind the story in doing so. All the same, the fact is that TVA is as close to a government monopoly as there can be, and this behavior should not be tolerated.

Political Bias at the Knoxville News-Sentinel?

I fired off an e-mail to Georgiana Vines, the former Knoxville News-Sentinel associate editor who has been taken to retirement like George Foreman, regarding her consistent coverage of the Corker campaign while all but ignoring the other candidates. I was told by a source at the KNS a year ago that the newspaper was going to be involved on the side of the Corker campaign for the 2006 elections, and that is proving to be true. (Michael Silence disagrees with me, by the way.) Here is the latest blurb that put a spur in my saddle.

If I receive a response, I will be sure to update this post.

Honey, This Ain't the Same for Humans...

Yeah, I wonder where the money came from for this scientific breakthrough...


"Narnia" arrives today

One of the few movies worth plunking down $8 (or more) this year, The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe, begins its run at theaters today. This story from FoxNews presents the anticipation surrounding this movie quite well. One interesting quote:

“Last year, movies with overt Christian content averaged over $100 million, those with moral content averaged about $60 million and those with anti-Christian or anti-moral content averaged only about $10 million to $10 million. Good always does better in the box office.”

Amen to that, although I can't think of any of the year's better films (Sin City, Phantom of the Opera, Batman Begins, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, Walk the Line, Wedding Crashers) that have "overt Christian content" or even "moral content." (OK, that's admittedly debatable...)

I'm not sure if my schedule will allow me to visit Narnia this opening weekend or not, but I'm sure that I'll be able to squeeze it in before Christmas.

UPDATE: To no one's surprise, I am not the only one eager to see this movie. John Frost is predicting a weekend take of $56.1 million. blogs4God has a comprehensive round-up of what Christian bloggers are writing about Narnia. Meanwhile, Dom Ruso delves into what Narnia's creator would want us to remember.


Scalia Slams Defamation Standards

You don't hear a lot of criticism directed at New York Times v. Sullivan, the U.S. Supreme Court case that established the high hurdles that a plaintiff must clear - including their own status as a public figure and the defendant's status as a media outlet - in a defamation action. That probably has more to do with the spineless liberals that still control the legal profession and less to do with the law established in that case.

At a recent event hosted by none other than Time Warner, Justice Scalia did come out against the New York Times standard. John W. Dean, former counsel to President Nixon, wrote on Scalia's remarks and expounded on them in excellent detail.

As a former media member, I can say that defamation is not something that you stay up late at night worrying about because of the law created out of the New York Times case. "Actual malice" is a high bar, indeed, and one that is rarely reached. It was refreshing to read of Scalia's remarks, as it offers some slim hope that the exorbitant protections afforded the media in this arena might one day diminish.

One point of disagreement with Justice Scalia - he was quoted as saying, "The press is the only business that is not held responsible for its negligence." That certainly is not true. For starters, take a look at the complete lack of snow across Knox County and explain how our meteorologists are held responsible for their negligence. (For all you kids out there, don't try to be a professional like a doctor or a lawyer. Be a meteorologist. Less student debt + Less time in school + No real responsibility or ramifications + Cool technology to play with = One very cool job.)


Demolition Derby Blogging?

Faced with a normal bout with insomnia and an abnormal break in what has been a busy week, I thought about catching up with the blog at 2 A.M. Just as I was doing so, a car (obviously traveling WAY too fast on a slick Woodlawn Pike) crashed into my neighbor's yard. It took 2 wreckers, 2 police cars, and an hour of time to raise the remains of the car onto the flatbed. I checked the road for black ice (there was none), but I think you can chalk this wreck up to college kids taking their lives - and the lives of others - into their own hands.

As I told the VOLConWife (who was awakened by all of the commotion), there's never a dull moment here in KnoxVegas!

Coulter lays down the law at UConn

Oh, Ann. When you show such passion towards a bunch of Yankee college kids, it just makes me like you even more.

Gender on Campus

I'll been interested to see what kind of reception Kate O'Beirne's new book, ""Women Who Make the World Worse and How Their Radical Feminist Assault is Ruining or Schools, Our Families, Our Military and Sports," receives when it is released next month. (Please note - the title refers to certain women, not all women. That seems to be a common mistake when encountering the title.)

Imagine my surprise when I heard none other than Rush Limbaugh discussing O'Beirne's new work on yesterday's show. (You can read the transcript here.) Rush also touted Michael Gurian's "The Minds of Boys: Saving Our Sons from Falling Behind in School and in Life." Having just observed a startling hiring pattern on the part of the State of Tennessee's Department of Human Services based on race and gender (more to come later on that), I am certain that O'Beirne and Gurian are onto something here (with Gurian diagnosing the problem and O'Beirne identifying the source of that problem). I doubt, however, that Katie Couric and her liberal media cohorts will be touting either book anytime soon.

I will try to add these books to the sidebar of this site so that they can be purchased from Amazon as soon as possible. Hey, it's the Christmas season. Start working on the liberal feminists on your Christmas lists!

How to Fix the GOP

One of the few highlights of my position with the State has been when I have a docket in Chattanooga. Besides wearing out all of the locals in NTN Trivia at Buffalo Wild Wings during lunch, I have enjoyed catching a bit of Rush Limbaugh's radio show during the drive back to KnoxVegas.

During yesterday's show, Rush mentioned Dick Armey's latest column in the Wall Street Journal about how the GOP needs to refocus. Armey is right on the money, and this should be required reading for conservatives that want to win back their party.

Hilleary questions integrity of Tennessee Right to Life

Blogging for Bryant has the story.

One of the comments following the B4B story has the situation pretty well summarized. If the moderates won't vote for Van (and they did not in 2002, without moderate/lib Bob Corker in the race) and the religious conservatives won't vote for Van (TRTL has over 175,000 potential voters as members), who is left to prop up his primary bid?


What Kind of Weekend was it?

Well, let's see...

My Chicago Bears handled the Cheeseheads from Green Bay and moved closer to a rare NFC North crown.

My Duke Blue Devils saved their best for last with a buzzer-beater victory over Virginia Tech at Cameron Indoor. And speaking of the Hokies...

The Florida State Seminoles - who were beaten to a pulp the previous week by the 6th-best team in the SEC - laid the wood to the Hokies and their criminal QB.

So, yes, this wasn't a bad weekend at all.

Caller threatens to "deck" Ford

Blogging for Bryant has posted that a caller to C-SPAN threatened to deck Harold Ford, Jr.

Given Ford's attempt to convince the electorate that he is a moderate and his problems with San Francisco homosexuals, I bet that the threatened blow would have been a straight Left...


From the world of Fantasyland...

Two lessons on why you can't believe everything you read:

1) A lesson on inaccuracies on Wikipedia.

2) Lies on socialized healthcare in Britain.

I have no idea what hole Volabroad's head is in, but I have lived in England. People die there every day from ailments, but the reason for their deaths is nothing but government bureaucracy. Maybe Volabroad should visit some British patients before she delivers endorsements of something she apparently knows nothing about.
