The "calm me down" column

After venting some frustration in my last post I realized that I hadn't read this weeks Ann Coulter column. I read it, got a little chuckle, acknowleged the flawless logic and am now a little bit calmer. Read it.

Cindy Sheehan: Commander in Grief
Fortunately, the Constitution vests authority to make foreign policy with the President of the United States, not with this week's sad story. But liberals think that since they have been able to produce a grieving mother, the commander in chief should step aside and let Cindy Sheehan make foreign policy for the nation. As Maureen Dowd said, it's "inhumane" for Bush not "to understand that the moral authority of parents who bury children killed in Iraq is absolute."

I'm not sure what "moral authority" is supposed to mean in that sentence, but if it has anything to do with Cindy Sheehan’s dictating America's foreign policy, then no, it is not "absolute." It's not even conditional, provisional, fleeting, theoretical or ephemeral.

I have been trying to EMAIL you regarding adding Oregonians In Action's link to our web page on your site. Any chance?

The link is up and I would highly recommend that everyone check their site out and sign up for their mailing list and contribute finacially to this group.

They will be the ones to coordinate Oregon's response to the communist Kelo decision.
