Sunday samplings...

So now Senator Roland Burris is under fire.
Seems he didn't tell the whole truth concerning his contacts with Blagojevich's people, not to mention concerning the favors sought from him.
See, this is why it was so stupid for the Senate to have seated this guy--there was just no WAY for him to have avoided the Blagojevich taint. And, further, this is why it was so stupid for Democrats to have caved in to having this guy seated. Now they'll pay for it.

Meanwhile, I agree with this sobering assessment:
"WITH three Afghan government ministries in Kabul hit by simultaneous suicide attacks this week, by a total of just eight terrorists, it seems that a new “Mumbai model” of swarming, smaller-scale terrorist violence is emerging. The basic concept is that hitting several targets at once, even with just a few fighters at each site, can cause fits for elite counterterrorist forces that are often manpower-heavy, far away and organized to deal with only one crisis at a time. This approach certainly worked in Mumbai, India, last November, where five two-man teams of Lashkar-e-Taiba operatives held the city hostage for two days, killing 179 people. The Indian security forces, many of which had to be flown in from New Delhi, simply had little ability to strike back at more than one site at a time."

And I agree with his assessment that this kind of attack is likely to come to America--and soon. Will the Obama administration be ready?
