There's a lot going on....

Wow, there's a lot going on out there in that big ol' world tonight.

First up, we have the Fallujah offensive well under way. This is a very good thing, just pray for the Marines and Soldiers doing this very dirty work. This town needs a good cleansing once and for all. There have been and there will be Coalition casualties, but there is no way around that and they understand that....probably more than the rest of us. Thank God there are those out there willing to do what they do.

Second, Arlen Specter. There is a battle brewing in conservative circles on whether or not to let Senator Specter have the Judiciary Committee chairmanship. For those of you who do not know Specter is what some would call a RINO or Republican In Name Only. He's a pro-choice lefty by most respects but still a Republican. He's also slated to Chair the Judiciary committee, which is likely to be one the most important committees in recent history when it comes to Bush's Judicial nominees, especially his Supreme Court nominations. There are like to be 3 or 4 retirements from the High Court in the next 4 years so the leadership on this committee is crucial. There are those that believe because Specter is pro-choice he should be "thrown under the bus" as Hugh Hewitt would say thus paving the way for a more conservative chair. I, and others, are of the opinion that Specter should be given the chairmanship and then watched very carefully. We must prove that there is room in the Republican Party for all different views and we don't just remove somebody because we "think" they're going to behave in a certain manner, that's what liberals do. We must wait and if/when Specter begins obstructing Bush's nominations then the appropriate actions must be taken. I say he's earned his position whether you agree with his beliefs or not.
