Weekend housecleaning: letters, Jimmah, Prince Charles, Reno on Karaoke, Kerry on Coulter, and King on poor chaps

In Thursday’s “Letters to the editor” section of WorldNetDaily, there was a comment on my column about the 33rd anniversary of Roe v. Wade:

I enjoyed Doug Powers’ clear column on abortion, but was struck by the comment that “rare, safe and legal” is almost impossible to argue against. I’m not sure I agree with that. If it’s legal, it can’t be rare. And either way, it can never be safe – at least one person dies, every time.

Couldn’t have said it better myself. As a matter of fact, I did… Didn’t I?

Hamas and Fatah battle over election results. Violence is allegedly breaking out now. This, of course, can’t be the case because Jimmy Carter said the whole process was “completely honest, completely fair, and completely safe“. Jimmy also expressed hope that Hamas would “act responsibly”.

Doesn’t Jimmy seem like the kind of guy who would let his little boy spend the night with Michael Jackson because Jacko assured him he wasn’t into that particular hair color?

An “election process” includes a peaceful and fair transfer of power after the actual vote, and the odds of that happening are about the same as the chances of seeing Michael Moore at a salad bar. Care to comment now Jimmy? … Jimmy?

Prince Charles is warning the British people not to get fat like Americans, urging them to exercise more. I’ll promise not to comment on this as long as the Brits promise that this exercise will include walking to the dentist.

Former Attorney General Janet Reno sang “Respect” with Aretha Franklin at a fundraiser in Florida (video).

Reno brought the house down. But enough about the Branch Davidian compound.

In 2002, Reno held a “dance party” inspired by the SNL skit, but found that “cutting a rug” exposed all the stuff she swept under it for Bill Clinton, so Janet has switched to singing… or at least something resembling somebody trying to.


John Kerry says that a good reason to vote against the nomination of Judge Alito to the Supreme Court is because Ann Coulter supports him. Kerry made the remarks on the floor of the Senate (here’s a transcript). Whatever Ann thinks, Kerry will plead the opposite.

Note to Coulter: Please urge John Kerry not to resign.

And now, to completely ruin your weekend, this: Larry King’s wife talked to Howard Stern about about her sex life with the reptilian CNN host. He puts on an Indian costume, she puts on chaps, the rest of us put on a vomit bag.

Larry pleads guilty… to being a sex machine!
