    I just want you all to know that I check this blog more often than I check Drudge.

    You are wise to do so.  Wombat digs up some good stuff.

    It’s not so much what’s dug up but how it’s presented.

    Regarding Michael Douglas: Lately I would say he was more of a Lynn Redgrave look alike (apologies to Lynn Redgrave).

    Regarding Chick-fil-A and Dan Cathy: If anyone didn’t realize this was about the right to free speech then check out Gay Patriot’s post.

    I wouldn’t say Chik-Fil-A was embattled from what I saw yesterday. More like the dingbat left is embattled, not to mention many other terms that could be accurately applied.

    And the fact that Chick-fil-a observes the sabbath on a Sunday. Heathens 😉
