Advocating on Behalf of the American Military and Defense on the War on Terror

 Two items directly from Instapundit that interested me:

ERIC POSNER: Was Bill Ayers a terrorist? Pretty much. “Under current law, Ayers was a terrorist. This definition is not idiosyncratic; similar definitions can be found in the laws of foreign countries and in international treaties. Ayers seems to think he ought to be excused for violence because his motives were good, but that is the excuse that terrorists always offer.”

WILLIAM “FREEZER CASH” JEFFERSON is defeated: “Indicted U.S. Rep. William Jefferson suffered what may be the final blow of his storied political career in the most improbable way Saturday, when an untested Republican opponent took advantage of Louisiana’s new federal voting rules — and an election delay caused by Hurricane Gustav — to unseat the nine-term Democrat. With the upset victory, Anh ‘Joseph’ Cao, a eastern New Orleans attorney who fled war-ravaged Saigon as a child, becomes the first Vietnamese-American in Congress. He will represent a district that was specifically drawn to give African-Americans an electoral advantage and one in which two of every three voters are registered Democrats.”
