Our Long Heterosexual Nightmare Is Over

Instapundit on the news that there is no world heterosexual AIDS pandemic as projected:
It appears, however, that the threat was always exaggerated, probably for a combination of political and funding-related reasons.

I Still Remember When He Had To Play Peter In That Debate With Jake Ford

Congressman Steve Cohen guest blogs on gay rights:
Memphis is not the city that springs to mind when one thinks of gay rights. Blues, maybe, but gay rights are enshrined in places like Christopher Street and San Francisco. Memphis conjures up Martin Luther King Jr., striking sanitation workers, Elvis, Jim Crow, and blues. In my decades of crusading for civil rights, I never intended to join the front lines of the LGBT movement. I never meant to pick that fight. The weight of Memphis' history made fighting for racial equality a natural road to take, one that I have traveled over the years with pride. That road has led me many places, some familiar, some not so, but foremost it has led me to understand that basic human freedoms, those things taken for granted by most Americans, cannot be afforded only to a specific class of person.

You Gotta Keep 'em Separated

The Donkey's Mouth reports that the Hamilton County Democrats are making a big show out of being united behind Barack Obama:
Please join us today as we bring together local supporters of Senator Hillary Clinton and Senator Barack Obama to unite and start working to elect Barack Obama as our next President of the United States.We will meet for a “Unity Proclamation” at 11 a.m. at the Party Headquarters at 23 Patten Parkway. I will ask Annie Hall, 3rd District Coordinator for the Clinton campaign, and Justin Wilkins, East Tennessee Volunteer Coordinator for the Obama Campaign and a 3rd District Delegate for Obama, to say a few words about moving forward.

Was That The Bogeyman?

Jonathan Martin argues that John McCain is forced to compare Barack Obama to Jimmy Carter because, frankly, he's the only Democratic punching bag left:
There are good reasons to tie Obama to Carter. First, there are fewer convenient and resonant Democratic bogeyman. Even if Ted Kennedy wasn't suffering from brain cancer, McCain wouldn't use him; the two are close friends and have worked together. Then there are the Clintons -- McCain can't hardly go there when he's trying to court Hillary's disaffected supporters. Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid just aren't that well-known among average Americans. So who does that leave?

Paint Obama As Child-Like

Lamar Alexander has some advice for John McCain:
“My advice would be: be himself. I mean, he’s strong on defense. He’s a straight-talker. He’s against wasteful Washington spending. He has a good record on the environment. He understands energy, for example, he’s strongly supported nuclear power. “So I think if he presents himself as a grown-up with experience capable of dealing with issues ranging from terrorism to gas prices, he’ll carry Tennessee and he’ll be elected.”

The Thin Line Between Heaven And Here

Memphis may be getting the headlines this morning for being number two on the FBI's violent crime list but we in Nashville really can't be bragging much. Nashville is number four just behind Baltimore.

Progressivism Can Be Lonesome

Left-Libertarian Jon Wright would love to see Congressman Jim Cooper serve as Budget Director in a new Obama adminstration if for no other reason than to give Steve Cohen some company:
I could definitely get on board with that. Let’s point his fiscal conservatism directly towards the budget where he’s useful, while giving those of us in Nashville a chance to put a more socially progressive legislator in the House to ally with Cohen.

Dave Ramsey Is Good For Your Heart

Mountains of debt can be bad for your ticker:
When people are dealing with mountains of debt, they’re much more likely to report health problems, too, according to an Associated Press-AOL Health poll. And not just little stuff; this means ulcers, severe depression, even heart attacks.

Never Talk To The Police

From Les Jones:
Anything you say can and will be used against you in a court of law, but nothing you can say to the police can be used in your favor in a court of law because it's hearsay.
