Profiles In Conservative Courage

Stealing an idea outright from Demophoenix . . . with a twist.

See, we hear CONSTANTLY from Rush Rumproar and Hannity, etc. how pious and good and morally upstanding ALL conservatives red staters are compared to those slack jawed anything-goes liberal blue-state demoncrats.

The rules? It must happen in a red state. BONUS: Involves prominent Republican.

Here is the first of a series; Profiles In Conservative Courage. It's a three-fer'.

Mr. Straight Talk Express
On ABC's This Week, Stephanopoulos just read the text of the Classified Information NonDisclosure Agreenent that White House employees are required to sign:

"I have been advised that any breach of this Agreement may result in the termination of any security clearance I hold; removal from any position of special confidence and trust requiring such clearances; or the termination of my employment..."

Stephanopoulos: Do you believe that this agreement should be abided by?

McCain: I do, but that also implies that someone knowingly revealed...

Stephanopoulos: This covers negligent disclosures

McCain: Again I don't know what the definition of "negligent" is.

Hominy, OK
A resident of Hominy, Okla., walked into a local diner Tuesday afternoon and allegedly shot a pregnant waitress, 26-year-old Becky Clements, in the head, then shot her again in the stomach and chest. Sheriff Ty Koch said the motive is apparently a recent letter to the editor of the Hominy newspaper, the News Progress, written by the woman.

Jacksonville, FL
The state suspended the licenses of two church-affiliated day care centers where children allegedly were sexually molested, forced to eat worms and pick each other's noses during employee-led games of "Truth or Dare."

I'm just sayin' . . .
