Thanks for the Birthday post, and she is working her sweet heart out in the Middle East to help settle some turmoil. CNN just reported today, Nov. 15, that is 10 days, all the paperwork and diplomatic efforts will be finalized for the Israel-Gaza deal. Now, would it shock the Democrats to see Condoleezza Rice win a Noble Peace Prize? You bet it would, and they would tear their hair out is distress to have Condi on the same playing field as that old coot Carter. I think Carter has become a tired old man, still trying to rebuild his tattered weak legacy as president, yet the more he speaks, the more he reminds all of us why he lost in 1980 to a stronger, vibrant and older man like Reagan. Age is not just a matter of years, it also an attitude, and Carter was old back in his days of being the president in 1976, so today, he is ancient history of pacifism, weakness, appeasement to our enemies, and witless in having a vision for the Democrats. So with Condi Rice to compare to the Democrats, she has the brainpower, the experience as our top dipolmat, and by 2008, she will have a record to run on from her years of services in the State Department. Our nation needs a strong leader with foreign policy experience, and a vision for our future. That is why I think Condi is our gift to the world, Rock ON CONDI, and I hope you win a Noble Peace Prize for your endearing efforts in the Middle East. You sure deserve it more than Arafat in 1993,.

THE NAACP has good news for Republicans. I found this item on Booker Rising, and it is such good news, I had to post it with my friend Miss Attila. I gives me such JOY to read good news like this.

NAACP Chief Makes Switch To GOP
For decades, Republicans have struggled to reach out to black Americans. But now in Orange County, Florida, the GOP has to reach no further than the NAACP. As of this week, Derrick Wallace, head of Orange County's NAACP, has switched parties. "I've thought about this for two years," said Mr. Wallace. "This is not a decision I made yesterday." Lew Oliver, head of the local GOP, described himself as "extraordinarily pleased," while Democratic leader Tim Shea said that he was disappointed. A construction-company exec, Mr. Wallace was candid about the fact that his business life was a big part of his decision to change. "It's purely a business decision. Ninety percent of those I do business with are Republicans," he said. "Opportunities that have come to my firm have been brought by Republicans." To that, Mr. Shea responded: "I'm a little confused. Are we talking about the National Association for the Advancement of Construction Professionals -- or Colored People?" Mr. Wallace elaborated that his "business" line of thought also referred to the NAACP. And he said he wants his organization to be part of that structure. Just as importantly, he said, he didn't want people to immediately brand -- or dismiss -- NAACP concerns as synonymous with those of liberal Democrats. "I want this branch to be respected," he said. Mr. Oliver said they already are, noting that all of the members of the GOP executive board joined the NAACP a few years back to show that they were serious about outreach. "

Juliette Ochieng, a black conservative Republican blogger, writes: "Is Mr. Wallace’s decision a result of the proverbial handout or hand-up? Possibly both. Few people of any persuasion or get anywhere without someone lending them a hand, even those who are highly talented and/or skilled. However, the perception may exist that the area Republicans 'bribed' Mr. Wallace into his conversion. The fact that he was honest about this was very shrewd; it takes some of the wind out of the ‘sell-out’ sails.....One must assume that Mr. Wallace’s company is legitimate, in the black (so to speak), set to increase profits and has a reputation for quality work. If that’s so, then it would be likely that many a good capitalist would send business his way.....And, isn’t this an example of minority outreach that many minority critics of the Republican Party have suggested? We’ll see how long it takes, however, for Mr. Wallace to magically get his ‘brutha card’ yanked. It would be a nice surprise for 'never' to be the day."

About Joy W. McCann: I've been interviewed for Le Monde and mentioned on Fox News. I once did a segment for CNN on "Women and Guns," and this blog is periodically featured on the New York Times' blog list. My writing here has been quoted in California Lawyer. I've appeared on The Glenn and Helen Show. Oh—and Tammy Bruce once bought me breakfast.
My writing has appeared in
The Noise, Handguns, Sports Afield, The American Spectator, and (it's a long story) L.A. Parent. This is my main blog, though I'm also an alumnus of Dean's World, and I help out on the weekends at Right Wing News.
My political philosophy is quite simple: I'm a classical liberal. In our Orwellian times, that makes me a conservative, though one of a decidedly libertarian bent.
