Hey, a homemade movie

The Patriette explains why folks of all political persuasions can support the Spirit of America fundraiser to benefit the people of Iraq … and she even throws in a homemade video clip to drive her point home.

Simon may soon be recognized as the blogosphere’s Best Essayist of 2004, an award he clearly deserves. After all, Roger L. Simon […]

As if blending puppies wasn’t enough

Is there no depth to which a certain well-known blogger won’t sink in an effort to pad the donation totals for the dastardly Northern Alliance? Leave the cute fuzzy kittens out of this, you scoundrels! Save the kittens and donate here.

Blogger Challenge, Day 3
