PLEDGE CASE BOMBSHELL!
Or, my Mother does it again.
When news of the case in question reached my mother, the first thing she asked was "Where's the mother in all this? Or the daughter for that matter." Sometimes, Mom's insight is nothing short of spooky.
The father placing the suit doesn't even have partial custody of the girl. Un-freaking-believable. Now the [expletive] [expletive] has the gaul to say HE'S the injured party, an obvious contrivance.

And now, to continue my little experiment from earlier...
Hmm, I'll have to keep trying...
I knew I liked Ann Coulter for some reason...
I'll post a more thorough review of her book Slander when I'm finished with it, but I just had to post this quote from page 126.
Historians have concluded only fairly recently, for example, that both Coolidge and Eisenhower were quite shrewd and perfectly content with the sophisticates of their days ridiculing them as idiots. This follows decades of sneering at both presidents for failing to live up to the standards of FDR, who was obviously great because he spent eight years failing to get the country out of the Depression but then had the skill and foresight to allow the nation to be taken by surprise at Pearl Harbor.
Aside from a passing swipe at that run-on sentence (because the Good Lord knows I'm guilty of it myself), that's a great way to summarize FDR's presidency. I've said for years that historians aren't going to be kind to FDR once the people alive at the time start dying off, and each year that becomes truer and truer.
Of course, it's not exactly correct to say we were surprised at Pearl Harbor, but that's a rant for another day.
