Michael Moore's minuteman declares war on democracy 

The BBC reports on an audiotape purportedly released by terrorist leader Abu Musab al-Zarqawi. It seems that he's not too keen on democracy:

"We have declared a bitter war against the principle of democracy and all those who seek to enact it," the speaker says...

"Candidates in elections are seeking to become demi-gods, while those who vote for them are infidels," [the tape] said.
I'm just guessing here, but I don't think Zarqawi is going to find much support among the 80 percent of Iraqis who intend to vote on the 30th.

I wonder if the staunchly anti-democracy al-Zarqawi is still a Minuteman in the eyes of Michael Moore. I mean, Moore values democracy above all else, after all.

Peyton don't do cold 

I said it last year, and I was right. Now, I'm starting to take it as a matter of faith. Peyton Manning simply can't handle cold and snow.

His passer rating in today's game at New England was lower than the season average for 30 of his fellow quarterbacks. Josh McCown and Patrick Ramsey did better, on average, than Manning did today.

Look, it's nothing against the guy. He grew up in Louisiana, he went to college in Tennessee, and he plays his home games in a comfy dome. He's simply not used to playing in the cold.

Today was the fourth time in his pro career that Manning has played a game in below freezing temperatures. He's 1-3 in those four games, and the one win was against a weak Denver team recovering from the loss of Elway.

He's winless in the snow.

As great as this year was for Manning, as unmatched as his stats were... I simply can't call a guy a great quarterback if he consistently chokes in the postseason, regardless of the weather. Sorry, Peyton.

And by the way, New England owns you, man.

Strange comment 

Martin Luther King, Jr. was one of the greatest men America has produced, and Americans should pause tomorrow to remember his powerful legacy.

That said, his widow, Coretta Scott King, makes no sense.

"If Martin's philosophy had been lived out in Iraq, we wouldn't have bin Laden."
Do I even need to explain the logical (not to mention temporal) inconsistency of that comment?
