Liberal Larry Sure Knows How to Turn a Phrase

Apparrently Dahlia Lithwick and Robert Weisberg read Ann Althouse.

(Hat tip:

Just in case you don't want to sift through all Ann Althouse's comments:

Why is it even an issue that Moussaoui failed to renounce his Fifth Amendment rights and reveal the 9/11 conspiracy to the FBI. Was he part of a criminal enterprise which resulted in the murder of more than than three thousand people? Even if the federal courts have not adopted the criminal enterprise rule for accomplice liability, did he aid, abett, solicit, encourage the crime? It may be the reporting, but it seems to me to be less of a situation of a pro-defense judge and more of a situation of a clueless prosecution.

The Friendless Claude Allen

Michelle Malkin's roundup of left and right reactions to the arrest of Claude Allen paints a sad picture of the left but a much sadder one of the right. The left wants to use him to attack President Bush but so, what else is new? There is nothing the left will not use to attack President Bush, not even solar flares or meteor showers. The right, on the other hand, is throwing him to the left-wing wolves to deflect their attacks on the Administration. For example, this link from Ms. Malkin's post. What happened to the man's presumption of innocence?

Deja Vu

There have been warnings that computer screens can trigger epileptic fits. Deja vu is considered to be a mild epilectic fit. For the past two days I have the feeling that what I am reading or writing on my computer screen is something I have read or written before. Hmmm.

"The clash we are witnessing around the world is not a clash of religions, or a clash of civilizations. It is a clash between two opposites, between two eras. It is a clash between a mentality that belongs to the Middle Ages and another mentality that belongs to the 21st century. It is a clash between civilization and backwardness, between the civilized and the primitive, between barbarity and rationality. It is a clash between freedom and oppression, between democracy and dictatorship. It is a clash between human rights, on the one hand, and the violation of these rights, on other hand. It is a clash between those who treat women like beasts, and those who treat them like human beings. What we see today is not a clash of civilizations. Civilizations do not clash, but compete."

It's worth reading
the whole exchange at Michelle Malkin.

"It is the burden of the fearful to prove the materiality of their fears and not the burden of a free people to reassure the fearful"
