Around the blogosphere

Michelle Malkin has a story that is a bit hard to believe, but maybe it is. Obama has a great idea for kindergarten education

Teddy Davis and Lindsey Ellerson Report: Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill., told Planned
Parenthood Tuesday that sex education for kindergarteners, as long as it is
“age-appropriate,” is “the right thing to do.”

Redstate has an update on the continuing battle over the John Doe provision

Today, Democrats are
scrapping the "John Doe" provision from the Homeland Security
bill. The provision would protect Americans who report suspicious behavior. As
Rep. Pete King (R-NY) said, "This is a slap in the face of good citizens who do
their patriotic duty and come forward, and it caves in to radical Islamists

Bill Roggio updates the Taliban's Campaign in Pakistan

At least eight people
were killed and 26 wounded
in the suicide attack on the Police Training
College in the Northwest Frontier Province district of Hangu. The bomber drove
his explosive-laden car into the main gate of the training facility, Ten of
those wounded are said to be in critical condition, and the local hospital is
operating under emergency conditions, The News reported. Hangu borders North
Waziristan, where the Taliban have been waging campaign against the government

the left sees cynical posturing on Iraq

Well, you don't need to be an expert to know that the GOP is backed into
a September corner
. In theory, if Bush were a normal politician, he'd use
that as a pivot, blame the Iraqis and then start a withdrawal for which he'd
take credit. Nixon would have done it in a heartbeat. Of course, a normal
politician wouldn't find himself at 28% in the
and ignore what that's doing to
the party
he supposedly heads.

Bill Maher has nothing but kind word to George Bush at the Huffington Post

A common right-wing talking point is that we weren't in Iraq on 9/11 and they
still attacked us. Yes, but this "war" is a numbers game: before we invaded
Iraq, how many young Muslim men were ready to join up for a suicide mission
against the west? Some, but my guess is, not very many. But now? My guess is
very many. The exact opposite of what the president says is true: because we're
there, this shit is going to follow us home. You could probably make up a chart
with incidents and images on one side, and the number of terrorist recruits on
the other. The abuses at Abu Graib: 25,478 Muslim men decide to strap on the
suicide belt. Pictures of Saddam getting probed after he was captured: 962 vow
jihad on America. Hidatha: 6,089 more. Of course, I'm making these numbers up,
and we'll never know what the real numbers are, but every time I see on the news
pictures of our "surge" -- that is, pictures of American troops knocking some
Iraqi's door in, women wailing, men blindfolded on the ground while an infidel
writes on their neck in magic marker -- I think, yep, there's another X amount
of really, really pissed off Muslims who are going to do something about it.

once again though, nothing tops this video of Cody Paul. The kid is just plain sick and everyone needs to see this video...
