James Dobson Looking to Gingrich?

U.S. offers insight into who the well-known conservative christian leader might vote for himself, although an official endorsement from Focus on the Family is not expected.
While making it clear he was not endorsing any Republican presidential candidate, Dobson, who is considered the most politically powerful evangelical figure in the country, also said that [Newt] Gingrich was the "brightest guy out there" and "the most articulate politician on the scene today."
Gingrich recently appeared on Dobson's daily Focus on the Family radio program, carried by upward of 2,000 American radio stations, where he made headlines by discussing an extramarital affair he was having even as he pursued impeachment against President Bill Clinton for his handling of the investigation into the Monica Lewinsky affair.
Just a note on media bias here:
(their quote) "...even as he pursued impeachment against President Bill Clinton for his handling of the investigation into the Monica Lewinsky affair"
How about the word 'perjury' folks? And how about calling the Monica Lewinsky affair what it really was--a scandal?
By referring to the Monica Lewinsky scandal as just an affair, the author is doing his best to persuade the reader that nothing was different from Newt Gingrich's affair and President Bill Clinton's, ignoring the fact that Clinton was charged with lying under oath, not infidelity.

Bombing One's Own Children?

Dennis Prager has a recent column on the Iraq war that offers yet further insight into why the U.S. has so far failed to win victory in Iraq. His explanation: this is a new form of evil for which we are unprepared.

Making Sense of the Libby Case

Ben Johnson from FrontPage Magazine does a good job sorting out the lies from the truth in the recent conviction of "Scooter" Libby. Johnson makes comparisons between Clinton's pardon of Susan McDougal and uncovers the lies issued forth from the likes of Pelosi, Reid and Kerry. Most disappointing is that while Libby faces a hefty fine and lengthy jail time, Valerie Plane gets a $2 million book deal. Some justice.
