Prayer Circle Jamboree

We're long overdue for checking in with our Prayer Warriors, whose words of Faith and Patriotism guide us through this dark age we presently inhabit. They've been such a source of inspiration I regret I can only highlight but a handful.

Belmont Club informs us that Democracy is just another word for blowing people up:

Basically, the various tribes, religious and ethnic groups (even the Christians) are maneuvering for votes: including, surprise, surprise, the Sunni insurgents. "The new and interesting thing in this election is the large-scale participation of Sunni parties for the first time. These parties think they have a good chance to win many seats in the parliament."

So it is less and less surprising that suicide attacks, such as the blast in a bus killing 30 people or the one which killed nearly the same number at a police academy involve Iraqis on Iraqis. It's no longer war, properly understood, but politics Middle-Eastern style. (BTW the word "Iraqis" is consciously used knowing it conceals a multitude of differences. For a discussion on how Arabs aren't all the same see Michael J. Totten) The purely military war in Iraq is over and America has won.

Plus we imported American-style democracy, which the locals have handily adapted to their own customs -- Mission Accomplished!!!

National Review's Ned Rice examines the politics of John Lennon, and determines that besides his appearance on Nixon's enemies list, his communistic record label, his pacifism, his advocacy of revolutionary politics, and his hostility to organized religion, Lennon is still a guy conservatives can really get behind. (He forgot to mention that time Lennon dangled his wang on the cover of Two Virgins, but I'm sure most of my fellow conservatives would be cool with that, too.)

Todd Manzi shines a light on Cindy Sheehan's efforts to kill American troops, as well as the Iraqi insurgency's reliance on Rassmussen polling data.

Michelle Malkin examines the "injuries" sustained by professional Christ-hater Paul Mirecki, who probably did this to himself so he could run for president some day.

Lastly, in style-related news, World Net Daily unveils this season's hottest fashion accessory, politically incorrect "Merry Christmas" bracelets:
"The enemies of Christmas have succeeded in making Christians feel as if we are bad and intolerant to wish someone a 'Merry Christmas,'" states the group. "This is political correctness run amok. We have reached an all-time low point in our nation's history when human sensibilities are elevated above offending Our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. It is long past the time for Christians to stand firm in our faith.
Sister Nancy Beth can think of no better display of piety or civil disobedience than adorning both forearms with these lovely baubles and heading straight to Target: "In your face, checkout girl" -- snap!
