"Much is made of Bush's current low standing in the polls -- though he rates much higher than did Presidents Truman, Nixon and Carter at their low points. But poll results count for less in a re-elected president than performance. Last week's four events turned some things around. Now Bush and his people must act."
In addition, Robert Novak has a great column today about George W. Bush moving forward on the supreme court nomination.
Keep the good news coming!

Now, what the President's father might call the "ugly S-word" has descended on his son's administration - further damaging a presidency that was already crippled and on the verge of unraveling.
"We used to have a problem with hubris," one senior Bush adviser said glumly. "Well, there ain't much swagger right now."
With the dénouement of the Miers fiasco and the Fitzgerald investigation, President Bush's beaten-down political fortunes should be ripe for a rebound. As we've said before, the recipe for starting a rally is straightforward: Get back to basics on the economy, the courts, and foreign policy. Go on the offensive in all of these areas. To regain the ground that was lost and to forge further ahead will require energy, discipline, and boldness from the Bush administration, and from the president himself.
John Podhoretz, in a column which recalls the central thesis of Bill Sammon's marvelous book, MisUnderestimated, says that many people are "Misjudging Dubbya."
And remember, there are signs all over of great news. There is a good chance that Scooter Libby will never be convicted, and in any case, The White House went largely untouched on Friday.
Rush Limbaugh is stil lthe number one talk radio host by a wide margin. Charles Krauthammer reminds us of the things that didn't happen on Friday. The "Today Show" recently embarrassed themselves, and conservatives are still laughing.
Over at the JunkYard Blog, they are still detailing the failues of local and state government in the aftermath ofHurricane. Ian Schwartz exposes another foolish move by long time white house correspondent and battle-ax, Helen Thomas with great commentary and video of coverage.
There is more bad news for the supporters of Reform Ohio Now, and this is good news for Republicans in Ohio. There are maps available of the potential congressional distrticts which would exist if Reform Ohio Now is passed.
Charles Krauthammer destroys the credibility of Brent Scowcroft and hands President Bush the gift of his strong analysis.
Don't be fooled by the media, there is no season of discontent here in Ohio.
Broadway.com always provides its' very useful review summary.
Rob Kendt in his broadway.com review. A fabulous playbill.com article highlighting opening night.
Ben Brantley in his New York Times review.
Mr. Brantley has some colorful comments in his article:"But Mr. Lane is by nature a Broadway baby, and his line readings are sometimes frilled with self-parodyingly showbizzy flourishes and intonations. And while he wears his slob's costumes (Ann Roth is the designer) with an appropriate Neanderthal slouch, when this Oscar spiffs up, for work or to impress the ladies, he turns into a well-groomed clotheshorse despite himself. (He might make an excellent Felix.)"
Clives Barnes pens his review in the New York Post. The Yahoo news summary of reviews. Howard Kissel in the New York Daily News.
When visiting on Manhattan, I love to read the Post and the Daily News every day. These papers are two of the finest newspapers in the world. They are fierce competitors, and the papers have their tabloid characteristics, however, these are real newspapers with great articles based upon real research with extensive documentation.
It would be amazing to see this production of The Odd Couple.

Enjoy this slide show at The Times.
While counting on the notion that we the people need the elite liberal politicians and talking heads to clarify the picture for us, citizens are dealing with real life issues that make them unavailable for Juan Williams contrived season of discontent. The frantic left-wing journalists were the first ones on the scene to start telling us of George Bush's failures in Katrina, Rita, and Wilma. Yet, when was the last time you saw or read a story updating you on the progress in these red state stricken areas? While the sleazy, tabloid networks and cable news outlets move on to their "season of discontent" regular red state Americans are struggling to put their lives back together. The media attempted to capture the attention deficit disordered minds of their superficial audiences with hyped stories of disparaged minorities in New Orleans. The media largely ignored Mississippi, Alabama, and Florida because their Republican Governors took responsibility for their states and worked well with the federal government to provide real relief for their people in helping them rebuild shattered lives. But the real point is that the residents of these devastated areas are facing real live tragedies with courage and strength that are not easily made into a rallying-cry to bash President Bush.
Moreover, there are other events which demonstrate that most of middle America is not participating in the synthetic season of discontent.
- The economic news is not only good it is broad based.
- Zany, wacky Cindy Sheehan has been cast aside by those who once supported her. Her fifteen minutes of fame seem to be over.
- Friday's news conference by Patrick Fitzgerald was more notable for things he said and for the things that didn't happen.
- Conservative Blogs are getting more and more attention everywhere and all the time.
- Paul Begala actually told the truth about something.
- Harriet Miers withdrew her nomination.
- A New Justice is on the horizon.
It will be interesting to see what intellectual gems emanate forth from Juan Williams and the other liberal talking heads this Sunday. Undoubtedly, they will be trying still to convince America that the Valerie Plame case is about the flawed case for war, and running their decades old play trying to convince us that we exist in an eternal season of discontent.

"We have not made any allegation that Libby knowingly/intentionally outed a covert agent." He also stated that, "This indictment is not about the war. Not about the propriety of the war. This is stripped of that debate and focused on a narrow transaction...they will be frustrated and not good for process and fairness of trial."
This post at the politcal teen is better than watching hours of cable news.
Michelle Malkin has live-blogging and complete coverage. Her coverages are truly amazing. Michelle emphasizes that no one is charged with the underlying crime of outing Valerie Plame.
Powerline has a short, insightful article.
I am not in favor of trying this case in the court of public opinion. I think Fitzgerald compromised his own integrity today with his presentation convicting Mr. Libby.
"This is. Our elites, our educated and successful professionals, are the ones who are supposed to dig us out and lead us. I refer specifically to the elites of journalism and politics, the elites of the Hill and at Foggy Bottom and the agencies, the elites of our state capitals, the rich and accomplished and successful of Washington, and elsewhere. I have a nagging sense, and think I have accurately observed, that many of these people have made a separate peace. That they're living their lives and taking their pleasures and pursuing their agendas; that they're going forward each day with the knowledge, which they hold more securely and with greater reason than nonelites, that the wheels are off the trolley and the trolley's off the tracks, and with a conviction, a certainty, that there is nothing they can do about it. "
Ms. Noonan continues: "That's what I think is going on with our elites. There are two groups. One has made a separate peace, and one is trying to keep the boat afloat. I suspect those in the latter group privately, in a place so private they don't even express it to themselves, wonder if they'll go down with the ship. Or into bad territory with the trolley."

Have you seen this Condi for President site?
This column by Dick Morris makes the strongest case yet to draft Condi.
Tuesday, October 25, 2005
You have to read her latest on Al Franken. Her perceptions and insights are right on the mark most every time. Fox News should give her a daily program as a venue to give America a daily reality check. Congratualtions Michelle! Your work is first rate!

John Fund at the Wall Street Journal provides a detailed analysis of "How We Got Here" on the Miers nomination. This is a qaulity piece.
NewsBusters is a new site that I found from Dr. Sanity. This site is informative and entertaining.
The Political Teen does another fabulous job in this posting on the Rove/Libby mess.
As much as we all despise it, The New York Times has reporting today on the Fitzgerald investigation which can not be ignored.
You have to read Michael Barone's latest. He is truly unique.
Reform Ohio Now, RON for short, should stand for "Republicans Out Now" because it is clearly their objective according to the latest RON radio advertisement featuring State Senator Ray Miller.
"We must end one-party rule in Columbus," Miller says in the ads. Miller goes on to describe the importance of Issue 3 by saying "You and I may not have $10,000 to give to a candidate, but a lot of Republicans do." See attached script for the complete ad.
"According to their website, RON claims to be a 'non-partisan group,' but their latest ad makes it clear that this is a partisan power-grab," said Ohio First Spokesperson David Hopcraft.
The ad, paid for by Reform Ohio Now, is running on at least one radio station in Columbus.
Miller not only implores voters to support 2-5 to remove Republicans from office, he claims that passage of Issues 2-5 will also lead to greater minority representation. This is a claim that is disputed even by one of RON's own architect of Issue 4. According to a September 25 Columbus Dispatch article entitled "Proposal could mean fewer black legislators:"
"It is very possible you could see fewer minority faces elected to the state legislature as a result of the Reform Ohio Now initiative, said Michael P. McDonald, as assistant professor of government and politics at George Mason University who helped craft language for the ballot initiative."
"It's about time RON came out and admitted what this effort is really about," said Hopcraft. "Rigging our election system for their allies and removing Republican officeholders."
But, The Ohio Education Association, an affiliate of the National Education Association, states that these issues are "non-partisan, good-government issues
Moveon.org strongly supports the passage of these issues.
Other liberal organizations have rushed to the cause of Reform Ohio Now.
An urgent message to all conservatives, Republicans, and voters who want and demand fair elections: Vote No on issues 2, 3, 4, and 5.
Liberal Reforms in Ohio: Trick or Treat?

"Can Miers' confirmation be blocked? It is easy to get a senatorial majority to take a stand in defense of this or that concrete interest, but it is surpassingly difficult to get a majority anywhere to rise in defense of mere excellence."
There is a great analysis piece over at Red State. Thank you Leon H. for your great work in this article and for taking time to comment on my Red State entry today about the Rove/Libby/Plame scandal.
I was just listening to the original Broadway cast of RENT sing "Seasons of Love" and enjoying research on some recent and upcoming New York productions. It would be a fabulous time to be in the city. These pictures from a limited run of PURLIE this past Spring create vivid images of a night at the theater enjoying this classic of Broadway. Many artists, critics, and audience members would love to see a great PURLIE with an extended open-run at a Broadway theater. Any investors interested in producing this classic of Broadway should immediately notify me.
The first photgraph on the right is Blair Underwood starring as "Reverend Purlie." WOW! This looks like it must have been a stunning and visually impressive production. In the second picture, I can just imagine Anika singing the great inspirtational show-stopper, "I Got Love."
The third photo is of tony-award winner Lillias White (seated) and tony-award winner Anika Noni Rose. As Missy and Luttibelle there is no doubt that these two dynamic performers brought the house down.
Let us start with news of today and work our way backwards. According to the News Max breakdown of the New York Times story, the entire investigation now seems to come down to a matter of contradictory statements, and possible charges of perjury.
Read the entire News Max article.
"So, here is what we have. Valerie Plame uses here married name, her cover name, working at the CIA front company called Brewster-Jennings & Associates, contributes $1,000 to the Gore campaign. The media spins this as a revelation resulting from the Novak article-and of course, Karl Rove. But, this is not what this shows. What this shows is that Valerie Plame blew her own cover right her because she contributed to the campaign of Gore under the same name that she used for her undercover, her married name, and the name of a CIA front company that she worker for. So, Valerie Plame violates who knows what other kinds of protocol using her undercover name, exposing the existence of a CIA front company and all of this is totally ignored because supposedly her name was leaked and that is how people noticed. Now, this is a clever, clever attempt to try to spin the as she didn't do anything wrong. Why is it perfectly normal for an American and CIA agent to contribute and want to contribute to the Gore campaign."
Check out Rush Limbaugh's timely analysis from this summer.
"ON JULY 22, 2005, the New York Times published a lengthy, front-page article detailing the work of two senior Bush administration officials, Karl Rove and Scooter Libby, on the Niger-uranium story. A seemingly exhaustive timeline ran alongside the piece. In 19 bullet points, the Times provided its readers in considerable detail with what it regarded as the highlights of the story. The timeline traces events from the initial request for more information on the alleged Iraqi inquiries in Africa to Joseph Wilson's trip to Niger; from the now-famous "16 words" in President Bush's 2003 State of the Union to the details of White House telephone logs; from Bush administration claims that Karl Rove was not involved in the leak to the naming of special prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald, and on from there to the dates that White House officials testified before the grand jury.
As I say, seemingly exhaustive. But there is one curious omission: July 7, 2004. On that date, the bipartisan Senate Select Intelligence Committee released a 511-page report on the intelligence that served as the foundation for the Bush administration's case for war in Iraq. The Senate report includes a 48-page section on Wilson that demonstrates, in painstaking detail, that virtually everything Joseph Wilson said publicly about his trip, from its origins to his conclusions, was false."
We can never leave out the brusque style or acerbic wit of Ann Coulter on display in her column of July 15, 2004. Her view of Wilson is right on the mark.
"On the basis of the answers he got, Wilson concluded that Saddam had not sought uranium ore from Niger. Since "Africa" means "Niger" and "British intelligence" means "Joseph Wilson," Wilson realized in horror that Bush's statement referred to Wilson's very own report! Out of love for his country and an insatiable desire to have someone notice his worthless existence, Wilson wrote an op-ed in The New York Times calling Bush a liar.
The whole story was already nutty enough to be believed by every columnist at The New York Times. But then journalist Robert Novak revealed that Clown Wilson had been sent as an unpaid intern to Niger by his wife, a chair-warmer at the CIA who apparently wanted to get him out of the house. This in turn provoked our own Walter Mitty to accuse Karl Rove of outing his wife as an undercover "spy" in retaliation for his attacks on the Bush administration. (And P. Diddy told me Britney Spears is out to get me! I'm a spy too!)"
As you listen to all the hot air emanating forth from the hysterical media, remember that you are more well read than they are, and you don't have a political agenda to accomplish with your thinly woven tapestry of misconstrued and deficient evidence.And a note to Karl Rove: anything that doesn't kill us will make us stronger.
Finally, if you haven't already seen it over at the political teen, you must see this montage of Chris Matthews demonstrating his obsession with Rove and Libby. I am glad that I watched some of his program this week-it made me angry enough to write this article and summarize my thoughts with the facts which have brought all of us to today.

This failed nomination is well-documented. Bring on Edith Jones or Janice Rogers Brown.
Charles Krauthammer's latest New York Daily News column is also wonderful. They ought to bring Charles into the White House and get him on the team.

Even the Dayton Daily Democrat agrees that Issue 5 is bogus. Actually their rationale to defeat issue 5 works well for all of the ammendments.
When legislation is possible, it's preferable to going to the polls. The legislative process allows for public hearings, careful deliberation and fine tuning. Sometimes an end-run must be made around the politicians. Not this time. "No" is the right vote."
Surely if the Dayton Daily Democrat says it, we should all vote no.

Secretary of State Condoleeza Rice is probably the most effective person in the Bush administration alongside Vice-President Richard B. Cheney. Her testimony today in front of the senate Foreign Relations Committee was stunning it its’ boldness, complexity and insight. Her exchange with Barbara Boxer shown on Fox News was priceless. As Dr. Rice clarified the picture for the members of the committee, it became increasingly obvious that her perspectives and intellect are politically and intellectually superior to the grandstanding senators.
In her over three hours of testimony, Dr. Rice proved to be both combative and pacifying. Condi is a brilliant woman, and she demonstrates it every time she goes up on the hill.
Condi for President in 2008! I think that this rumor has a lot of good in it! Condi for Vice-President right now! (May God Bless Dick and Lynne Cheney)
There is a great editorial in the Cleveland Plain Dealer which best summarizes conservative opposition to the issues.
Issue 2 (No-Fault Absentee Voting)
“Issue 2 would make absentee voting easier, but only at the cost of creating other, larger problems.”
Issue 3 (Campaign Finance)
“Tipping the scales in favor of usual Democratic contributors is a naked partisan ploy, and presenting this as a lasting solution to corruption is just hogwash."
Issue 4 (Redistricting)
“…At least you can argue with an elected politician at the ballot box. Where do you go to argue with an unelected mathematician?”
Issue 5 (Elections Oversight Commission)
“If you don’t like the secretary of state, you can vote against him every four years. If you don’t like a nine-member appointed panel, tough.”
The entire article is worth reading.
There is little doubt left that even if reforms would help in Ohio, these constitutional amendments are defective and deserve to be soundly defeated at the polls on November 8. A compelling case has been made-now go to the polls and vote no!

You also have to read this detailed column by Stephen Hayes over at the Weekly Standard. This is comprehensive coverage of the Valarie Plame mess.
Check out all the comments to my articles at www.thespis148.redstate.org It is interesting to see the debate. I wish more citizens of Ohio were aware of the "Reform Ohio Now" hoax.
One more link: I love Michael Barone. He has a great deal to contribute to our national discussion.

Ohio voters should reject all issues 2-5. The issues are either outright harmful changes, or they would be better handled as laws instead of constitutional amendments -- or both.
The argument, then, is not that the state political systems do not need improvement. The argument is that Issues 2 through 5 are not improvements in either substance or place. They are, at worst, special-interest schemes or, at best, well-intentioned attempts to build a bridge too far.”
"There is no room here to go into depth on the FairTax. Very briefly stated, H.R. 25 would eliminate all personal and business income taxes, death taxes, Medicare taxes, Social Security taxes, capital gains taxes and the Alternative Minimum Tax. The FairTax would remove the embedded taxes that exist in the retail price of virtually all consumer goods and services, averaging 22%, and replace those embedded taxes with a 23% embedded consumption tax. Every American household would receive a monthly check from the government to cover the consumption taxes that would be paid on the basic necessities of life up to the poverty level. Businesses could operate in America without any tax component on capitol or labor. Individuals could save and invest without any tax consequences. The FairTax plan would completely eliminate the federal tax burden for America’s poorest families while bringing unprecedented economic growth and job expansion. American businesses and American dollars that have fled our crushing tax structure will be able to come back home to work in America without tax consequences. This is the type of tax reform the American people are looking for, not “business-as-usual” tax increases and politically expedient tinkerings with our already-broken tax code.
Enactment of the Fair Tax would constitute the biggest transfer of power from the government to the people since the ratification of our Constitution. Much more information on the FairTax can be gleaned from the website for Americans for Fair Taxation."

Ian Schwartz, the political teen, has a virtual smorgasbord of information refuting any claim to fraud or irregularities in the 2004 Ohio election. You can read all of Ian’s comments and links at on his web site.
On June 23 2005, Captain Ed at www.captainsquartersblog.com detailed a post-mortem on the Ohio election. With strong research Captain Ed produced an article replete with documented verification reminding voters that the election fraud that did occur was on the part of democrats, “So, yes, Virginia, there was voter fraud in Ohio. What the “Exempt Media” wants to keep from us is that it occurred on behalf of the Democrats. The race, unlike in Wisconsin and Washington, wasn't close enough for it to make a difference. For that, Ohioans can be grateful.” The marvelous guys at www.powerlineblog.com strongly support Captain Ed in their post of October 22, 2004 wherein the democrats were found to have registered a terrorist to vote. This is unbelievable.
And, finally to prove that the most recent Ohio election was not fraudulent and therefore demands no remedy, each of the liberal myths are totally debunked in this lengthy and well-documented article at the Ohio GOP website.
Ken Mehlman has stated of the 2004 Ohio election that, "The undisputed facts in Ohio are: Democrat officials had to be stopped by the courts from misleading voters about the day of the election; a Democrat affiliated group paid a worker in crack cocaine to submit fraudulent voter forms; and Democrat allies attempted to disenfranchise Ohio voters by submitting registration cards for Mary Poppins, Dick Tracy and Michael Jordan. Republicans will continue to register and inspire new voters, make it easier for everyone to vote at the polls and protect everyone's franchise from being cancelled out by illegal or fraudulent registration."

UPDATE: The Ohio Education Association claims on its' website, and in The Ohio Schools magazine that Reform Ohio Now is non-partisan. I wonder what the columbus leadership of the orgnaization is saying to the Conyers propaganda, and the list of supporting organizations? For the dues paying members, it's just more politically charged left-wing rhetoric forced upon the membership.
“The four amendments, which will be on the statewide ballot on November 8, form one of the most comprehensive reform packages in the country. They are not partisan issues, but good-government issues designed to clean up corruption and institute accountability measures regardless of who is in power.”
OEA President Gary Allen in Ohio Schools.
Does anyone really believe this?
UPDATED AGAIN: The "non-partisan" group People for the American Way has a "non-partisan" post demanding the passage of the Reform Ohio Now ammendment package.
It just keeps getting better!
There are a couple of proposals in these amendments that have merit. But for the most part, Ohio already has an excellent election system that has served us well for decades. Democrats as well as Republicans have won many elections here in the past. In particular there`s no reason to amend the state constitution.
Read the whole editorial, it is worth it.
UPDATE: Read what the college Republicans are saying here.

"Can this marriage be saved? George W. Bush feels dissed and unappreciated: How could you not back me? Conservatives feel dissed and unappreciated: How could you attack me? Both sides are toe to toe. One senses that the critics will gain, as they've been gaining, and that the White House is on the losing side. If the administration had a compelling rationale for Harriet Miers's nomination, they would have made it. Simply going at their critics was not only destructive, it signaled an emptiness in their arsenal. If they had a case they'd have made it. "You're a sexist snob" isn't a case; it's an insult, one that manages in this case to be both startling and boring."
Would anyone venture a guesstimate of the timeline for the withdrawl of the Miers nomination? Surely it will happen sooner rather than later.

Steering Committee, Coalition Opposing State Issues 2, 3, 4, 5
Columbus – Former Ohio Senate President Richard H. Finan, a Republican, and Mayor George M. McKelvey of Youngstown, a Democrat, today urged all Ohio voters to protect their vote by voting NO on State Issues 2, 3, 4 and 5 on the November 8 ballot.
Finan introduced fellow co-chairman Mayor McKelvey of the Ohio First Voter Education Fund Steering Committee. Mayor McKelvey then introduced other Steering Committee members in a Statehouse news conference.
“Issues 2-5 are bad for Ohio whether you’re a Democrat, Republican or Independent,” Mayor McKelvey said. “They strip control over the elections process from Ohio voters and hand it to state bureaucrats with a blank check book to spend our tax dollars.”
“Out of state special interests are telling us that we can’t be trusted to control our own elections. RON puts its faith in appointed bureaucrats. I put my faith in the Ohio voter.”
The two leaders introduced other Steering Committee members including David W. Johnson, Chairman of the Ohio Manufacturers Association; Donald K. McLaurin, Mayor of Trotwood and Dr. Douglas Oliver, Associate Professor at the University of Toledo.
Also present were representatives of: the Christian Coalition of Ohio, the National Federation of Independent Businesses, the Ohio Concrete Construction Association, the Ohio Dental Association, the Ohio Manufacturers’ Association, the Ohio Trucking Association, and the Youngstown/Warren Regional Chamber of Commerce. These groups are a sample of the wide range of groups that oppose Issues 2, 3, 4 and/or 5, including such faith based and business organizations as Citizens for Community Values and the Ohio Association of Realtors.

This fabulous column details the job of the Chief Justice. The article is a timely, well-researched and definitive description of the constitutional role of John Roberts, and is also timely.
James Dobson hasn't really helped with Miers nomination although the White House appears to have enlisted his help. The Judiciary Committe has threatened to call Mr. Dobson to testify. His comments were not ready for prime time, and now he has attempted to explain his remarks. More likely than not, he has added fule to the fire. Read all the links: they are worth it!

The factory whistle shrills on Broadway when the Londoners of Fleet Street return in a new revival of Stephen Sondheim´s Sweeney Todd, The Demon Barber of Fleet Street, Oct. 3.
John Doyle, who staged the original London run, directs the musical which will open on Broadway at the Eugene O´Neill Theatre Nov. 3.
Sweeney Todd features music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim and a book by Hugh Wheeler, drawing from the play by Christopher Bond (itself based on characters created by British journalist George Dibden-Pitt, who adapted his 1830s penny dreadful tale into a popular stage melodrama). The story follows a vengeful barber (Sweeney Todd) in Victorian England and his neighbor (Mrs. Lovett) who owns a pie shop that becomes popular due to a surplus of fresh meat.
This unique staging casts actor-musicians to retell the story of the Demon Barber of Fleet Street and company. A cast of ten (with no ensemble) perform on various instruments ranging from flute, trumpet and clarinet to cello, accordion and bass in addition to their acting and singing duties.
Tony Award winner Michael Cerveris (Assassins) will star in the title role opposite Tony Award winner Patti LuPone (Evita) as the lovable meatpie-maker Mrs. Lovett — her first Broadway musical role in 17 years — for the new Broadway revival.
You can read more here, here, and here.
Experts Bill Kristol and Brit Hume made valuable contributions to the current debate during the Fox News Sunday panel. The panel, moderated as always by Chris Wallace, was masterful in their discussion of the issues surrounding the Harriet Miers nomination. Bill Kristol restated his call for Miers to withdraw her own nomination.
This article at Red State makes the points against the nomination of Harriet Miers more emphatic than ever.
George Will, instead of moving on, seems to punctuating his advice with his column in the New York Post today.
Confirm Them continues to vigorously engage the debate on all fronts from all sides at all times.
Finally, you have to read what Ed Morrissey has written on his Captain's Quarter's Blog. It is fantastic writing.
Amazing that the Pajama Game would once again make its' way to Broadway. The production will mark the broadway performing debut of Harry Connick Jr.
You can read much more about this production here.
There are several articles with detail about the production.
