Yet Another Really Great Blog

Wednesday, January 11, 2006
We've augmented the blogroll again.

Spook 86 is a guy (gal?--sounds like a guy) who claims to be a former spy and has recently joined bloggerdom. In his own words, "Spook 86 is the pseudonym for a former member of the U.S. intelligence community". I dunno about that, but one thing I can say is that his new blog, In From the Cold, is great. Really. Like Belmont Club, it contains lots of analysis of foreign doings that I didn't know about and hadn't thought of, but the site also contains trenchant analysis of the domestic political scene.

Consider this article detailing the nefarious NYT and its continuing attempt to surreptitiously elect Hillary whether we like it or not. Did you know about Hillary's plan, in conjunction with Kerry, to have the federal government force all states to give voting rights to ex-cons? Neither did I.
For the record, Senator Clinton favors blanket amnesty for felons; along with John Kerry, she supported a "Count Every Vote Act" that would have forced states to restore voting rights to felons. As the WSJ noted last year, the felony voter provision was actually a thinly-veiled effort to restore a Democratic majority in the Senate. A study by sociologists Christopher Uggen and Jeff Manza found that projected felon voting would have been sufficient to keep the Democratis in charge of the Senate from 1986 until 2004, a powerful incentive to restore voting rights to jailbirds and ex-cons.
Speaks for itself.

Is Wretchard finally getting some real competition? Well, Wretchard writes like an angel, so nobody can compete with that, but on the analytical side there might be something here. Only time will tell. [HT Roger Simon]

I enjoyed what I've read of his blog so far.

Makes me miss the Diplomad again.

Another good reason to support HR 550. It contains no such felon provision so
soon Jack Abramoff and a variety of Republican congressmen will never be able to vote again.

Republican congressmen Harry Reid of Nevada and Byron L. Dorgan of North Dakota, for example.

("Law-enforcement authorities and others said the investigation's opening phase is scrutinizing Sens. Conrad Burns, Montana Republican; Byron L. Dorgan, North Dakota Democrat; and Minority Leader Harry Reid, Nevada Democrat,....

Go back to harassing children, troll.

If that is true why is Hillary pushing for it?

Why is it Democrats think it is ok for them to steal and lie? I mean they get caught in all kinds of illegal stuff and guys like you think it is no big deal.
