Had an early breakfast with my pal and am already checked into the Hotel, the Fedoras are ready to rumble!

The full Fedora Monty

The room doesn’t seem to have MSNBC available on the TV so although it means I will miss Joe & Mika tomorrow it shows great taste on their part.

There is a lot of news out there. You have Sarah Palin and Barack Obama, Pam Gellar on the same page concerning the Koran stuff: Palin briefly

Our nation was founded in part by those fleeing religious persecution. Freedom of religion is integral to our charters of liberty. We don’t need to agree with each other on theological matters, but tolerating each other without unnecessarily provoking strife is how we ensure a civil society. In this as in all things, we should remember the Golden Rule. Isn’t that what the Ground Zero mosque debate has been about?

And Rightnet via Glenn comes to the same conclusion as me.

But the Democrats that use these . . . people . . . are the ones who are really playing political games with our soldiers’ lives and their well-being—because they are the ones who enabled the antiwar movement’s behavior, for eight long years. And now that the Democrats have been in charge for two to four even longer years, they would now like to pursue a grown-up (i.e., Republican) stance on the Global War on Terror (GWOT) — because, contrary to progressive belief, the American public tends to react badly to political parties that actually lose wars.

I’d end by asking rhetorically whether the Democrats expect to get away with trivializing the antiwar movement now, and then seamlessly reactivating it later. Except that I already know the answer: they do expect it, and they’re right to expect it. The antiwar progressive left has nowhere else to go, so it might as well get on with the business of rubbing the lotion in its skin.

But you know what, this is my third trip to DC and I have yet to see a single monument, so I’m going to do that now while I have a chance. I’ll be back blogging in a bit.
