The New York Sun article reprints Carter’s handwritten note.
Will Brian Williams or Katie Couric include this in their evening news broadcasts? Nope. As long as Carter remains a liberal Democrat, he can do as he pleases and will always be given a free pass by the liberal media.

At the time Reyes was the incoming House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence Chairman.
"In a surprise twist in the debate over Iraq," the story began, Mr. Reyes "said he wants to see an increase of 20,000 to 30,000 U.S. troops as part of a 'stepped up effort to dismantle the militias.' "
"We have to consider the need for additional troops to be in Iraq, to take out the militias and stabilize Iraq," the Texas Democrat said to the surprise of many, "I would say 20,000 to 30,000."
Then came President Bush's expected announcement, virtually matching Mr. Reyes' recommendation and argument word-for-word -- except the president proposed only 21,500 troops.
Then what happens? Just hours after the president announced his proposal, Mr. Reyes told the El Paso Times that such a troop buildup was unthinkable.
Reyes, not know for his intellect, is the man who was unable to tell Sunni from Shia, incorrectly maintained that al-Qaeda belonged to the second persuasion, and stumbled into paralyzed silence when asked the same question about the Shia group Hezbollah!

The Dane County Humane Society says it is spending nearly $6,000 a week to care for 47 pit bulls authorities believe were bred for fighting.
Half the available space in the humane society shelter is devoted to the dangerous dogs. The organization has cut back on its efforts to protect other animals because of the costs incurred by the pit bulls.
In addition, the humane society has to hire guards to protect the shelter during off hours because unknown terrorists have threatened to harm society employees should they harm the pit bulls.
He has been going all over the world propping up dictators and thugs, so why not help a Nazi SS guard?
Recently he wrote a book that did not hide his anti-Semitic views. The book allegedly contains plagiarized passages. A plagiarized map was even altered to suit the book.

Neither the Democrats nor the media will hold Carter accountable.
It was Jimmy Carter’s presidency that chased me out of the Democratic Party. His actions after leaving the White House constantly remind me that I made the right choice.

Some things cry out for explanation. Like finding $90,000 in marked bills in a Congressman's freezer. Or finding out that a blue-chip lawyer who held one of the most important jobs in the nation was willing to risk his career, his livelihood, and his liberty to steal, hide, and destroy classified documents.
We all have a pretty good idea what the money was doing in Representative William Jefferson's freezer. But the questions about President William Jefferson Clinton's National Security Adviser, Sandy Berger, just keep piling up.
Mr. Berger, the Clintons, and their allies do not want questions about this story asked or answered.
Mr. Berger's lawyer, Lanny Breuer, along with former Clinton officials, assured us that all of the material destroyed by Berger existed in other form and was made available to the 9/11 investigations, that nothing relevant to the Clinton Administration's response to al-Qaeda was withheld.
Of course, we also were assured that Monica had only imagined a relationship with Bill and that rumors to the contrary were, in Hillary's famous phrase, the work of a "vast right-wing conspiracy."
Just as the media was quick to pick up on Hillary’s "vast right-wing conspiracy" phrase, they were just as quick to ignore the Sandy Berger state secret theft incident.
There is one possible reason the Clinton’s were able to keep Berger from receiving punishment befitting his treasonous crime.
The memory of what happened to Clinton Administration attorney Vincent Foster is still vivid and remains a powerful reminder of what could happen to anyone who is tempted to cross the Clinton’s on a major issue.

The Federal Way School Board Tuesday night put the brakes on schools showing Al Gore’s global warming movie, “An Inconvenient Truth.”
The board required that an opposing view be presented in order for teachers to present the film. Board president Ed Barney said he’s received about a half-dozen complaints from parents that their child was taking the film as fact after viewing it at school.
“We have to ensure that our schools are not being used to politically indoctrinate anyone,” said board member Dave Larson. The board voted 3 to 0, with two members absent.
First it was John Kerry calling American troops child killers and rapists, as in the days of "Jenjis Khan."
Then there was his wife Teresa saying that Mrs. Laura Bush staying at home raising two daughters "didn't have a real job."
Then both John Edwards and John Kerry went on to publicly gay bait Vice President Cheney about his lesbian daughter.
This was followed a few years later by Kerry saying that people who joined the US military were stupid and society's losers.
Now we have Barbara Boxer, Senator from Disneyland on The Bay, implying that a very accomplished, distinguished African American woman, Dr. Condoleeza Rice, isn't fit for her office because she hasn't given birth to children, a condemnation she wouldn't dare raise about the white Gloria Steinem, Donnna Shalala or Janet Reno.
The article is “right on” and is well worth reading in its entirety.
The only thing I could possibly add is to say that the disdain of the Democrats is seldom challenged because 85% of the media is decidedly liberal and applauds this type of behavior.

House Democrats believe in open, honest government. Well, right after they get caught, that is.
Turns out, in the hoopla of self-congratulations following Democratic House leaders' passage of a minimum-wage hike, some low-wage workers learned their wages would be staying, well, low.
For workers in American Samoa - almost all of them employed by StarKist Tuna - were exempted from the hike rushed through by Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (pictured).
And American Samoa would become the only territory with such an exemption. Curious? Not really.
StarKist is owned by Del Monte, a San Francisco-based company - that is to say, a Pelosi constituent.

Sorry Charlie, if you do make your way into the tuna boat, they will be using cheap labor to dissect you.

Imagine sending your kids off to school, but when they get to the bus they are told they can't get on because they speak English.
That's right, English.
It happened to some children in St. Paul.
Sen. Barbara Boxer, an appalling scold from California, wasted no time yesterday in dragging the debate over Iraq about as low as it can go - attacking Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice for being a childless woman.
Boxer (pictured) was wholly in character for her party - New York's own two Democratic senators, Chuck Schumer and Hillary Rodham Clinton, were predictably opportunistic - but the Golden State lawmaker earned special attention for the tasteless jibes she aimed at Rice.
It was as if Condoleezza Rice avoided motherhood so that she would not have offspring to send to Iraq.
Just when you think the Democrats can’t go any lower, they do. Senator Boxer just proved it.
Fasten your seatbelts, it will be a long bumpy ride for the next two years.
